HIS SKULL SMASHED George Carver of Doe Bun Found On conscious on Btraat in Farmington Laat Friday night. As I lie electric car was returning j from its run out to the Hospital ! bout ten o'clock last Friday night, OetldUCtOr Hunt saw a man lying between the track and the pavement on Coliin, bin street, near Dr. Flem ing residence. He Mopped the car and got off, and found that the man bail I n hurt anil was unconscious. ' lie stepped up to Dr. Fleming's dooi and rang the bell, and when the lioctor came out told him what he bad found. Dr. Fleming ex amined the man's bead and found that there was a severe fracture of the skull juat over the right ear. Tin man proved to be (ieoige Car ver of Doe Run. Dr. Fleming gave the wound a temporary dressing and then had Carver removed to Mrs. Seahaugh's, where with Dr. Robin son - assistance further examina tion was made. The skull was badlj broken for a space ol about i by J'j Inches. The fraciured pieces of bone were removed aud the wound properly dressed. He regained con sciousness a few hours after the op BfntloUi The brain was Injured by the blow, and while there is a pos albilitv that he may recover, the chances are against him. Mr. Carver was in Farmington Friday, and that afternoon he Waa 1rol.ii, ir .-. : I Shorllvbli- fon bis discovery in an nncouscioiis , lllrlMlH,.s (im ,., , ja-,.( . r,.s , conditio i the street, one or two wj f ajl Who knew him. pet -mis living in the immediate , when a boy he united with I'leas vciinily where he was found beard nlll Valley BapUsI Church, and has some one call out "don't do that, j ),,. u rmnslsteul member of the you'll kill him," hut paid little at-1 Itaptlat Church ever since. Some taOtion 0 it, as It Is one of the si y,.ttrH ago In was elected asacssorof puone iimrmiL'iiiares oi ineenv mm people an is report 1 passing al all hours. It d (hat Carver had been 1 ,1vil, tr"" the negroes on account of forcing his attentions an several colored girls. For I his reason two or three negroes wne arrested Saturday as suspeota, but later developments proved that thev had nothing to do with the af fair and they were discharged. Some of the young colored people who knew ull about what had occurred, decided to tall, so as to relieve the men wlm hud been arrested as sus pects. It seems that a party of young colored people were on their way home from church, and there is a report that Carver had also been around the colored church. At any rate, when in the vicenity of where Carver was found, it is said that he had stepped in front of one Of the colored hoys and his girl, und in sisted on the girl taking a drink. Her escort shoved him off the pave- ineut, and it was about this time that Catver must have been struck, ' with a rock or a club, and some one beard to call out, "don't do that, you'll kill him." On what now seems to be reliable testimony, Prosecuting Attorney Buyer filed his affidavll against Sterling Alex ander (colored) charging him with making the assault, and caused his arrest. Sterling has served a term in the Reform School for Boys. When arrested he made a statement implicating John H . Douthlt and L. Antolne Murphy and slightly Im plicating Newt Hunt tall coloredi. On this Statement the Prosecuting Attorney also caused the arrest of Douthit and Murphy. The prolominary examination of Alexander, Douthit and Murphy will he held as soon as the Prt ciitlng Attorney returns from St. Louis, were he went Monday on legal business, No day has been set for the examination yet. There now seems to be ho doubt that the guilty party or parties will be found out and given a Speedy trial.
