Thomas A. Summerskill, superin
tendent of motive power of the Central

the bodv and dangerously wounded at
his home in St. Albans Tuesday morn
ing bv Lieut Harrie V. Hall, a neigh

with his revolver to the DumnierhRiu
house across the street from bis own
home in response to cries of "burglar
which aroused him at 4 o'clock in the
morning. Ashe ran up the steps, Mr.
Summerskill, mistaking him for the
burglar who had just entered uis muni
and escaped by a window, attnuked
him with a policeman's club which he
ha 1 picked up as a weapon and Hall in
turn mistaking his assailant for the
burglar, fired, the ball passing through
Mr Summerskill's body and imbed
ding itself in the walls of the house.
Mr. Summerskill entirely exonerates
Mr. Hall from all blame in the matter,
as both were entirely confident that
the other was the burglar. His wound
is dangerous and the surgeons say it
will be several days before its effects
can be determined.
