Is Taken in Custody ou tho Charge of
Constable Stephen A. Ollby, of this
city, wns arrested on Monday night
by County Detective Leyshon and
I'iken before Alderman Jones of tho
1'erond ward, who held him In $500
lmll on a charge of feloniously wound
ing Eddie fiuimun on New Year's
The charge of feloniously wounding
tefeis to the net of Constable Ollby In
drawing htn revolver and shooting Oor
siiiiu when the latter had escaped from
tho constable's custody whllu he was
being taken to the county Jail on com
mittment papers Issued by Aldeiman
Delevun, who had held Gorman ire
$.'00 bait on tho specific charge of the
larceny of $2.00.
The constable was on his way to the
Jail with the prisoner and had gone
but a shoit ways when the latter aimed
a savage blow at him, which caused
Ollby to relax his hold. When Gorman
stripped himself of hl3 overcoat and
lint and ran down Belmont street and
was outstepping his caretaker, who
was burdened with a sore foot. After
Ollby had called on him to stop, the
constable fired his revolver In -the air,
then aimed at the runaway and shot
t ice more, the first bullet going wide
but the second finding n, resting place
In Oilby's knee, which brought his
flight to an abrupt termination. Gilby
then hired a cab and brcught his pris
oner or patient to the city stronghold,
'roni whrnre hr was convoyed to the
11 neijcenry hospital, where fl f bullet
wis extT-rt-tctf b o that night.

The fact of Gilby's being arrested by
l.eyshon Is commented upon for the
leason that he wns removed from the
ofllce of county detective several hours
before he served the warrant upon
Clllby nnd had been succeeded In tho
posdtlon by William A. Phillips. Tho
explanation given for this Is that the
papers were prepared on Saturday, be
fore he wns removed, and thnt. ho was
acting with the knowledge and under
the Instruction of District Attorney
Lewis In the matter.
Constable Neary accompanied Detec
tive T-eyshon when tho nrrest was
made. Constable Ollby wished to ba
taken before Alderman Dolevnn, whosj
court officer he Is, but his request was
I, refused as Alderman Jones had Issued
;, the papers, and he wns brought before
;; Aldeiman Jones, who. nfter hearing
"' the evidence, held him in JS00 bail. Al

Eddie Oorman. the cause of the
trouble, Is still at the hospital recov
ering from tho effects of tho wound.
He Is doing nicely and If no unfore
seen compllcatlels ensue, he will bo
nble to leave-the institution In a week
or ten days. The constable lS'prepared
to take him to the county Jail as soon
ns hg can walk, still having the oilgin
al commitment with him.

bishop or the Episcopal dloceso of Cen

Will Be Blind.
Michael Toolan, of the West Side,
who has been In Philadelphia consult
ing occullsts In regard to his Impair
ment of vision, hns returned home
with news o a most) grievous nature.
The- specialists have held out no hope
whatever of his recovery, but, on the
contrary, have confirmed the rilngnosls
of Dr. W. W. Fletcher, of this city,
who predicted some time ago thnt he
would eventually lose his sight.
For a number of years Mr. Toolan
has been blind In one eye, nnd tho
other has now become diseased to such
an extent that he can see but a small
part of tho time, usually only In the
morning nfter a night's rest of the
falling eye. Dr. Fletcher's explanation
Is that the cause Is a detachment of
the retina nnd a llqullled condition of
the vitreous. There Is no cure for this
trouble, and no hope can be held out
to the unfortunate young man.
