GLOBE RUBBER STAMP WOR i * SHOOTING ' AFFRAY AT EVERSON TOOK PLACE LAST NIGHT-?OFFICERS ARE ON THE HUNT OF THE PARTICIPANTS. As the result of a drunken brawl at Everson last night about 7:30 o'clock, two men were shot more or less seriously. Three Americans had an eight-gallon keg of beer at "Brother" (M. C.) Davis* house, and while the beer was being disposed of, four Italians came along, and were invited.to neip. wnen the keg was emptied, some one proposed taking up a collection to procure another. This the white men agreed to, but the foreigners refused. Davis and Aaron Thorn became very much incensed at this and Davis hit one of the men. This started the battle. One Italian ran out of the house and up a bank, pulled a revolver and opened fire. Thorn was shot through the hand and head. The ball entered just above the right ear, plowed along the scalp and came out the hack of his head. Davis was shot through the left arm, the ball breaking the bone. Dr. Alkire, who dressed the wounds, says that neither of the men are dangerously hurt. As soon as the shooting was done, the Italians ran in the direction of Monongah. One of the four was captured immediately after the light, but it was proven he did not shoot. The others have not been captured yet but officers all along the river are looking for them. They will unundoubtedly be caught. :t Xalk Jb> ROPER Cd which FITS the figure pi ding "that thei-e is the set on Ton Corsets embody looked for in a Front ' Straight Front ip, 103 11 or 12 inch >^nsj , Hose Clasp Lace trim- \\ Lace med Abdominal band for reduc- // ing proportions to graceful lines ff and taking the H^STYLt strain away from 9 -5487, ^ nnT-tc vpnniri ntr -7\ ./nR^ 3URES. , A - ]\oYAy^' freedom.
