He Used It with Great Effect Upon A Brother Lawyer
BRAZIL, Ind., Oct. 22 – At 6 o’clock last evening Albert Payne, a prominent attorney of this city, was seriously cut about the head and face by Attorney W. B. Schwartz, also an influential lawyer of this city.
Schwartz yesterday afternoon, at about 4 o’clock, got into a dispute with W. W. Moore, which resulted in their coming to blows. Moore then employed Mr. Payne to look after his side of the case.
Schwartz, understanding this to be true, tackled Payne later in the evening. Both parties became greatly excited and engaged in a scuffle, Payne knocking Schwartz down. The latter drew a large knife and cut Payne horribly about the head and face, also stabbing him in the neck.
A warrant was sworn out and Schwartz was arrested.
