Connor - Clint and Wallace - assault

Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Journal Friday, 30 May 1902

Warrants were issued Wednesday for the arrest of Clint and Wallace Connor and Jim Evans, charging all of them with riot and charging the Connor boys with assault and battery. Evans is a son-in-law of Wash Connor, the father of the two in the case, and has been living with the old man near Mace. An altercation arose Sunday because Jim had been letting his hogs run on their land and they adjourned to the middle of the road to finish the argument. Jim had the losing side of the debate all the way through until his wife came to his rescue with a big club and the Connors were driven to an ignominious retreat. The lynx-eyed limb of the law found out about the rumpus and all are slated to appear before Squire Stilwell.
