Fewuns Lege Mtabs Evariste
Connor Last bunday.
Last Sunday afternoon at Eizebe
Touchet's race track in the 6th ward
about eight miles northeast of here,
Evariste Connor, a young man about
30 years of age became involved in a
difficulty with Fergus Lege, a farmer.
and was stabbed severely in the left
chest and cuss on the right wrist by the
latter. The dispute grew out of the
conduct of the jockeys who ran the
race.
Connor's wounds were dressed by
Drs. W. G. Kibbe and C. J. Edwards.
Sheriff Hebert promptly arrested Lego
and lodged him in jail, where he will
probably remain until the result of
Connor's wounds is definitely determ
ined.
Owing to the conflicting versions of
the difficulty afloat we shall not at
tempt any account of it. The unfort
unate affair is to be deeply deplorsl.

leased on giving $1,000 bail bond
