Puppy Killing Case Dismissed By Court

Gus Songas, proprietor of the Mandan Palace of Sweets, received no judgment from J.E. Campbell, police magistrate, in a municipal court Wednesday. Songas asked for damages from Robert Huff, city dog catcher, who shot and killed a puppy belonging to Songas.

Police Magistrate Campbell ordered the case dismissed on grounds of lack of evidence. Campbell ruled that Huff had no right to shoot the dog before warning the owner according to a city ordinance.
