ESCAPES LEADEN PELLET FROM
REVOLVER OF JAMES LINCKE
BY NARROW CHANCE.
Robert Donnelly escaped a leaden baon
bon from the revolver of James Lincke at
the Butte concert hall on East Park street,
last night, because the latter was too ex

Instead of hitting )Do,nnelly the bullet

was a blank cartridge, but the sight of a
leaden pellet stuck fast and deep into the
wall convinced them that a possible mur

In the excitement Lincke escaped and
up to last reports had not been appre
Lincke and another man were in an ar
gument when Donnelly butted in to make
peace in the family, but Lincke resented
this familiarity on Donnelly's part, hence

to do so in the prosecution of the man
