KILLED IN POLITICAL QUARREL
Attack on Socialism Results in Fatal
Fight in Chicago Saloon.
CHICAGO. Oct. 20. A political
quarrel, beginning with an argument
on the coal strike and ending in an
attack upon socialism, ended last
night In the death of one man and the
Injury of two others. The fight, whVch
took place in the saloon of James Wal
lace, 313 Fulton street, was participat
ed in by five men.
CHARLES Wl'LFF 27 years old.
George Bowes, bartender; cut on
head, neck and body.
David Schultz, stabbed twice In the
right leg and once in left side.
The other two men who participated
in the fight were Frank Brown, who
escaped, and John Fitzgibhons, who is
held as a witness.
During the discussion some one made
an uncomplimentary remark about
socialists. Dowes, who is a so
cialist, was offended. Some one
hurled an empty bottle and that was
the signal for a geneial fight, In
which Wuff and Schultze were stabbed
by Bowes, who was cut himself, and
who claims self-defense. Wulff died
from his wounds shortly afterward.
