PRSCPS CREAM BAKING POWDER m WORLD'S TAfRjCHlCAGO, 1893 A MURDER Attempted at the Greenbank Road House. Thomas Erang Shot BIchsrd Matthews Through the Bight Lung, Then Succeeded in Escaping Arrest— Both Men Are Colored and Were Employed at the Kenneth Qunrries. The Greenbank road house, near the Lux & Talbott stone quarries, west of the city, was the scene of an attempted murder, Saturday even Ing. Thomas Evans emptied his revolver at Blchard Matthews, a compan Ion, with whom he had quarreled and the latter is now at St. Joseph's hospital, bovering between life and death, One of the shots struck him in the right breast, penetrated the lower part of the lung and lodged in the muscles of the back. The bullet was located and removed by Dr Hetherington. A second shot struck Matthews two Inches to the right of ;he umbilicus, but having ipent its force in penetrating his heavy gar ments, did not enter the flesh. Two other shots, fired in rapid succession passed wide of their mark. The Ifth cartridge missed fire, when Evans deliberately "broke" his gun and proceeded to reload it. While ie was thus occupied, Matthews su& ceeded in getting out of range of the gun. Evans disappeared after the shoot- ng, and the probabilities are that he will never be punished for the crime. The shooting occurred in the bar room of the roadhouse. The men had been drinking and Matthews called Evans a bad name. The latter then drew,his revolver when Matthews said: 'Why, you wouldn't shoot me," and with the reply "yes, you called me a s-- of a b—; I won't have you say it again," replied Evans, and be ipened. Matthews was not over three feet from Evans, and the first shot struck him in the right breast. He staggered and fell into a corner of the room, and while thus prostrated Evans fired three more shots at him. After the first shot Matthews called loudly to Evans: "Don't shoot Tom; for God's sake don't shoot," Evans' temper having been fired by iheap whisky, he paid no attention to the appeals of his victim. When the shooting began Frank Greenbank, the bartender and son o the woman who conducts the place together with several colored .men who were present, lost no time In getting out of the bar room. Two of them were so anxious to get ou that they broke a window and jumpec through the opening. After the excitement had subsided to some extent Matthews was taken to his car, meanwhile the pollc were notified and Dr. Hetherington summoned. Acting under th latter's instructions, Matthewi friends secured a conveyance an conveyed him to St, Joseph's hospital The police are of the opinion tha Evans came to the city some time Saturday night and boarded an out bound freight train, He is describe as a man about 40 years of age, feet 6 inches in height, has a sligh evidence of a mustasche and stutter slightly. He wore a corduroy cap a light brown overcoat and blu overalls. He had been employed a Kenneth but a few weeks. Matthews is also a newcomer. H is tall and very strong. He cam from Indianapolis and had agreed to go to work at the Kenneth quarries today. Being possessed of a strong constitution his chances for recovery are considered good. A Bad Major.
