Judge Endlich's court was crowded to hear the case against WIlliam Miller and his wife Kate, 712 Spring, charged with keeping a disorderly house and selling liquor without license, on Sunday, and to minors.
Daniel F. Vandermuth, 1152 9th, was the prosecutor, and his daughter, Mattied, aged 14, was the first witness. She testified that she visited the house frequently during the past year; was induced to come there by the Miller woman; notes were sent to her from the Miller house; she saw high kicking, straddling, men dressed in women's clothes and women dressed in men's clothes during the skirt dance. Beer was served to those present. It was taken from kegs on the bar. Wine was also served. She saw card playing; saw no money paid for drinks.
Rebecca Finkbone corroborated the testimony of Mattie and added that she saw a girl stripped by one of the men. She added that a club had its headquarters in the house and that the front room was used for the purpose.
