About A o'clock j esterday afternoon an
exciting scene was enacted at Hamilton A
Brooks's coal office, on south Limestone
street Joe Quinn, of Yellow Springs, had
been in the city all daj and Springfield
whisky finally got the better of him. He
was crazy drunk when his brother tried to
get him on the train to take him home. He
refused to Uianl the train, and succeeded
in reaclilm; Limestone street Ms brother
holding him all lite time. A great crowd
gathered around, and Ouinn's brother
begged the men to come to his
assistance, sajlng that with a lit
tle help. he could throw lilm
to the ground and lie him. that being the
onlj way he could be handled when he was
in such frenzj-. Not a man. however, had
nerve enough to render the inline fellow
any assistant e. Police Clerk Morrill, who
happened to Ik) pissing, saw what the dif
ficulty was, and blew his whistle for an
officer. He then forced his way through
the crowd toward Qulnn, intending to take
hold of him. Before he could rea h him
thecra7 man drove his left arm clear to
the shoulder through one of Hamilton A
Brooks's windows. His arm was bare, his
coat and shirt seeB hiving been torn
oil in the struggle with his
brother. The glass cut the
bleeps muscle entire! in two and severed
the main aitery of the ami. The blood
poured from the wound In a lierfect stream
and the man would verj likel have bled
to death had not Clerk Morrill qulcklj tied
his handkerchief above the wound, thus
shutting off the blood.
Quinn was taken to Dr. Uussell's office,
where his lufurywas dressed, and then
taken to the station house.. Almt 10
