ASSAULTED WITH A SHOVEL

Resentment at being shown how to shovel sand, it is alleged, prompted John Lafata to strike his foreman, George Weaver, on the head with a heavy shovel, inflicting a dangerous fracture of the skull, yesterday afternoon at the Scullin-Gallagher Steel Works.

Lafata with several other men was removing some sand from one part of the plant to another. Lafata's methods of handling the shovel did not suit Weaver, and he took the utensil from Lafata's hand to illustrate its proper use. Weaver's act angered Lafata, and, grabbing the shovel, he dealt the foreman a stunning blow.

Weaver was carried to the office of Dr. Hill, No. 6837 Manchester avenue. After temporary treatment he was removed to his home, 2904 Arsenal street. Lafata was arrested by the police of the Mounted District and will be held to await the outcome of Weaver's injuries.

On October 25, 1905, Robert Robertson was driving his wagon at Twenty-second and Olive streets in Kansas City, Mo., when Ora Wessley knocked him out of the wagon with a stone and then stabbed in the side. Wessley was arrested. An old grudge is said to be the cause of the attack.

On last Saturday someone slipped into Mundy & Hornsey's establishment while it was temporarily vacant, and stole between 70 and 80 dollars from the money drawer.
A certain young man who had been hanging about the place was suspected of having been the thief, and as he had left for De Soto, he was followed and accused of stealing the money. He did not admit taking it, but said rather than rest under the accusation, he would replace the amount, which he did.
