“By request of the City Marshal, we again publish a few sections of the City Ordinances. Mr. Hartsock does not intend to go beyond the limits of the law, but he does intend to force law in all cases where it may be violated, and that to the fullest extent:
…Art. 2—Sec. 1….
…Sec. 2. No person shall in this city, wear on or about his person any pistol, revolver or any other dangerous or deadly weapon, except by special permission from the Mayor, and whoever shall violate this section shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction thereof shall be fined not less than five nor more than ten dollars. Provided however that this section shall not be construed as to prevent any United States, State, County or City officer from carrying such weapons as may be necessary in the proper discharge of his duties.
Sec. 3. No person shall in this City, discharge any gun, pistol or other firearms except as an officer of the City in the discharge of his duties. Any person violating this section shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor.”
