Taken Into rustoAy by Shi«rfff Korr, rrisoni'J-s -fl.lKM) H OIII I K. —Bcamua's CiiiKlitiuii Bnil. ' Robert .ind Gus Boodi were brougUt to lola last night by Sheriff Kerr who went to Bronson Intc ycstrrday to arrest them on a churgc of attacking Robert Beaman with intent to kill. Arraigned before Justice J. I'. Duncan both defendants readily p:ivo bond in the sum of 11,000 <?ach and were released pending a iiroliminan' hcarinfi to bei held before Judge Duncan Dc- cmber 27. The Booth brother^ would make no ststfement but authorized their attorney, F. J. Oylcr, to say for them what over he deemed proper afier they had related the story of the fipht to him. "All wo have to say at this time." said Mr, Oyler, "is that the fisht was forced upon Robert Booth. Gus Booth did not touch Rob?rt Beaman. For many weeks, over since the trouble in the school district arrtserHea- man has been annoying Bob Booth and the Booth family. He has triojl to drive them out of the road wlien they •would mp*'t. Friday Bob and Guf Booth were driving along the road with some farm products going to Bronson. Tliey met Beaman who assailed Bob with vile epithets. Bob resented this and ili- row started. Kelther of the Boolli boys had a revolver and no pirclifork was used. The remainder of tlie facts will come out when the court takes up the case.' ' The rei>ort that the condition of Robert B<«man was very dangoro'.is and likely to prove fatal was bruuglii to lola today by Constable Charl'-s Nelson, of KIsmore. "Beaman is suffering intensely." said Conptable Nelson, "and his family and his friends are alarmed over his condition," If Beaman should die the county attorney will immediately amend the charge against the defendants and ask an increased bond. There is hope however, that the strong p !iy.=i(it!c of Bearaa]{ will wjthst.-ind liis injuries and that he will recover. As in the scliool controversy, people in the Union district havo taken sides in this case and it will require careful weighing of rv!il<nce iliat no injustice may be done.
