Samuel W. Carter, a drivor employed
at Luther Keller's West Lackawanna,

on tho head at C o'clock last evening
by a 9-pound fire brick thrown by
Frank Wngntr, of Duntnore. Carter

A warrant wns sworn out and served
upon Wagner by Detective Molr last
night. He entered ball before Alder
man Millar for a hearing this after
noon nt 3 o'clock.
The assault was the result of a quar
rel In which Carter seems to have tho
best case. Wagner Is a local sales
man and yesterdny afternoon about 3
o'clock ho visited nt the hounoj ot a
family named Sprague in the rear of
the lime establishment. He drove a
horse attached to n light buggy. Be
fore entering the Sprasuo house he
tied tho horse under the shed of the
lime ostabllshmnt In the- rear of tho
office which Is used ns n nl-jht shelter
for the lime wagons. Wagner re
mained In the Sprague house until C
o'clock In tho evening.
CAUSE OF THE TROUBLE.
At that hour the teamsters of the
lime wasrons drove to tho shed to put
up the wagons for the night. Carter,
who was one of the teamsters, found
Wagner's buggy In the stall where he
was accustomed to leave his wagon and
without any ceremony untied Wagner's
horse and backed the buggy from the
shed. Then he drove his wagon in its
Wagner happening to look from the
window of the Sprague house and saw
his horse and buggy standing on tho
road and he rushed out In a rage. He
demanded of Carter why he had moved
the buggy. Carter told him that he
wanted to place his wagon there and
Wagner said he had permission from
Mr. jieller to use the shed any tlmo he
wished to. Carter didn't see how Wag-ner-'s
claim could come before his, and
he told Wagner so.
Words led to words and finally Car
ter passed some severo remark, to
which Wagner retorting with a still
more severe ono using an expression
which Carter resented.
According to Wagner the teamster
picked up a brick and was about to
strike him. At any rate the salesman
also grabbed a brick from a pile on the
side of the shed nnd hurled It full and
free at Carter's head.
The brick struck Carter near tho left
temple and he fell like a log, senseless.
WAGNER FLED. '
Wagner Immediately sprang Into his
busrgy and drove away at the full
speed of his horse. Carter recovered
consciousness after five minutes and
was carried to tho homo of his son,
Sidney Carter, who live In the rear
of the office next to the Sprague house.
Drs. Hellner and Beckwlth were
summoned and dressed the small cut
on Carter's head.
The brick struck on Its Hat side a
quarter of an Inch from the edge of
the left temple near the eye. The bono
was laid open.
Drs. Heilner and Beckwltli thought
last night that the skull was not frac
tured. Tho blow was a severe one,
however, and a definite decision could
not be mndo owing to the swelling.
Instant death would have resulted if
the brick had struck another inch to
Immediately after the assault Harry
Van Horn started In pursuit of Wag
ner. At the time of Wagner's frenzied

and on tho authority of Mr. Keller a
warrant was Issued by Alderman Mil

Detective Molr arrested Wagner In
Dunmore last night. He appeared
before Alderman Millar and entered
ball on his own recognizance for a
hearing today. Wagnor Is unmarried
and Is middle-aged.
