"Giles Firmin, a man about 50 years of age, went to the Temple of Music at noon today and attempted to sing for the benefit of the few who were there taking a rest in the cool recesses. He was taken to police station 3 by one of the guards and sent to No. 13 of the city police station by Capt. Fox. He gave his address as the Columbia lodging house, corner Quay and Main street."
