AN UGLY AFFAIR.
Porlor Gray Full of SJiot ami 1m in
mlinsr A RivLaw Hint On.
On Friday afternoon, November
13, about 8 o'clock, at the home of
Porter Gray, in No. 2 township,
Gray and Ddve Motley go: into a
dispute, resulting in a ecrap, in
which Motley was badly bruised up.
The differences were supposed to
have been adjusted before the two
men separated, but Friday night, it
is claimed, a number of men went to
Gray's place and rocked his house.
Six men are now under arrest for
that charge, and it is said that a
number of other3 were implicated.
Motley, one of the parties to the
affray, is also under arrest. On
Tuesday, it 13 said, Porter Gray
was fired on by some one from am
bush and his back and head are full
of email ehot. He is said to be in
hiding, fearing that if his where

The affair is an ugly one and will
doubtless make a big suit. We
knew of the affray last Saturday,
bat thought it a trivial La a, iter and
kept quiet, but recent developments
show that it was quite serious.
Mrs. Porter Gray is under arrest
also, chargid with selling whiskey.
The case has been going on all day
at the court house, before Esquiros
Hill and Pitts.
