Actual details of the cutting are
not clear, but scores of people along
the midway witnessed the cutting
which had the appearance of a kill
ing. All the crowd saw the negro
running with the white man Just
behind, a knife in his hand. As the
negro ran into the milling crowds
he was stopped by the tush and it
was at that time, according to spec
tators, that the white man leaped
on his back slashed his neck. After
cutting the negro the white man
eased into the crowds and disap
peared. The negro was rushed to the
hospital. There it was found that
he was not as seriously cut as was
first thought. There was a bad slash
on the back of tils neck and several
neck muscles were seveved, but the
i blade of the knife missed the Jugu

One report is the negro acciden

the latter became infuriated. Ano
ther is that a remark made to an
other colored person was believed
by the white man to be directed at
him. Officers were working quietly
on the case today and hope to be
able to make an arrest this week.
