DONAHUE, Simeon

Simeon Donahoe[sic], 45[sic] years old is dead; William Mordew has a bullet wound in his arm. and the police are searching for Clifford Hawley, the murderer, as a result of a fight growing out of a political argument here Saturday night. Hawley and three other men were in Harry Timm's restaurant when Donahoe entered. Donahoe and Hawley entered in conversation, which ended in a political discussion. The argument grew warm, but finally the two agreed to drop the subject. This they did, but after a few minutres delay the debate was renewed with increased bitterness. William Mordew stepped between the two men and ordered them to desist. For answer Hawley reached into his coat pocket and clutched a revolver which he fired twice without removing it from his pocket. The first bullet struck Mordew in the right arm, inflicting a serious wound. The second lodged in Donahue's stomach. Donahoe died within five minutes. The two uninjured men seized Hawley, but after a scuffle he escaped, dropping his revolver in the restaurant and losing his hat in the street outside. Hawley's home is at Addystone, Hamilton county, 0., where he has a wife and one child. He has been visiting a brother, George Hawley, in Ronco, and had never seen the man whom he killed until Sunday night. Donahoe was a coke worker at Bessemer and leaves a wife.
