A fight with a greek named
Jenes. The Greek was propri
etor of a resturant in Rainier and
while the negro was eating,
some sort of an argument was
started which resulted in an
agreement by the negro and the
greek to go out on the dock and
settle it. Arriving at the dock
the fight was started but only
lasted a few minutes. It seems
the negro was armed with a long
knife and a bottle of gin, while
the greek was backed up by
friends armed with scantlings.
However the negro got to work
first with the result that the
greek received two very bad
wounds, one in the abdomen and
one in the back which reached
to his liver. The condition of
the greek is considered Berious
from last reports and the negro
is being held awaiting the out
come of trie wounds.
