Centralia Weekly Chronicle (Newspaper) - January 18, 1911, Centralia, Washington i Centralia Weekly 5 ip n wild Saturday night's orgy with n free-for-all fight early yesterday morning, in Pe KI1, knives worc drmtii by a number of Poles and in the fracas one of their num- ber, named John Lent, was clisem- bowelod. The man was brought to Chohalis and taken by Stlcklln's ambulance to tho St. Helen's hospital in a fear- ful condition, barely living, and his life is flickering faintly with mo- mentary prospect of death. In fact he may bo dead by the time this paper goes on the street. Sheriff Vrquhnrt who had just re- turned from an arduous trip in the mountains after another law-breaker, rushed to Pe Ell and brought back the assailant, who is held pending 'the result of the assault on tho stabbed man. He will probably be booked later on a murder charge. The affair created an intense sen- sation in Pe Ell, which is a dry town, and everyone is asking each other, where the Poles got their booze. I After the stabbing, the crowd of foreigners fled in different directions as quickly as their wobbly legs would carry them, leaving tho injured man on the ground, with his eutrals hang- ing out for three hours before med- ical aid was .summoned. Ho pre- sented a sickening sight when he was brought to the hospital, and the medi- cal men regard his surviving, even for a short time, as little short of mirac- ulous.
