August Greyler

August Greyler, who received a wound in his skull by Leo Martin at the Radke dance, was able to walk to Chesterton last week Tuesday where Dr. Marr extracted the broken knife blade which remained in the skull. The next day he began to grow worse, and Thursday about 6 A. M. passed from among the living. A few hours after his death a complaint was entered before William Brummitt, J. P., for the arrest of Leo Martin. The constable, C. F. Way, with the assistance of the police, arrested him in Chicago on Friday. He was arraigned before Squire Brummitt on Saturday, where he pleaded guilty on the charge of stabbing Greyler and was committed to the county jail to take his trial at the next term of the Circuit Court.
