For a drink of whiskey three men were killed on the 20 inst. at Dodson, this county. Two shot to death and the third, with his body slashed almot [sic] to ribbons, died a few minutes after he had fired the fatal shots. Larry McDade, 38 years old, a miner, was sitting near the railroad tracks drinking from a bottle, when two Italians demanded a drink. McDade refused them. Drawing stilettos, the foreigners attaced [sic] McDade, who, after being slashed with the keen blades, finally managed to draw his revolver. He sent a bullet through the heart of one of the Italians, but then his weapon regfused [sic] to work, and the remaining Italian struck him in the throat with his stiletto. Using the body of the dead Italian as a shield, McDade continued the fight. Both men fell to the ground, and McDade's revolver, striking a stone, was again in working order. He fired at the Italian, who dropped dead. The wound in McDade's neck was fatal, and he fell to the ground, where some miners found him. He had not yet lost consciousness, and related the story of the fight, dying shortly afterward.

McEVOY, Charles H.

CHARLES H. M'EVOY TO BE BURIED SATURDAY
Prominent Citizen Killed Near Frostburg When His Auto Gets Beyond Control
The funeral of Charles H McEvoy, aged 51 years, a prominent citizen of Cumberland who was killed about 5:30 yesterday afternoon when the automobile he was driving struck a culvert and crashed into a fence one mile west of Frostburg will take place at 9 o'clock Saturday from St Patrick's of which he was a member.  Burial will be in St Michael's Cemetery, Frostburg.  Mr McEvoy was returning from a trip into Pennsylvania when the fatal accident occurred.  Shortly before leaving Grantsville, he talked with William Kean, 210 Green St, who was preparing to come to the city.  He departed before Mr McEvoy.  Sometime later, Mr McEvoy came upon the Kean car that had stopped along the road to make repairs.  Mr McEvoy stopped to inquire if he could be of any assistance and then left.  Mr Kean said he saw nothing more of Mr McEvoy and did not learn of the accident until he reached Cumberland.  He then recalled seeing the demolished car along the road, but it was so badly crushed that he thought it had been there for some time.  It Is believed that the brakes on Mr. McEvoy's car refused to hold when he began to descend the mountain.  When it struck a short curve Mr. McEvoy is believed to have lost control of the machine, which skidded into the culvert and then bounded against the fence lodging on both culvert and fence. Mr. McEvoy was hurled 50 feet from where the car rested.  William Powers, Frostburg, who was working near the accident, heard the crash, as did Engel Speir who was at the Speir abattoir. When they reached Mr McEvoy's side, they found him in a dying condition with his skull crushed.  He was put into a passing automobile to be taken to the Miner's Hospital at Frostburg, but he died en route.  The body was brought to Cumberland by Undertaker John C Wolford and later taken to his home, Washington St.  One theory of the accident is that the brakes on Mr. McEvoy's Ford car locked after he tried to get it in control and he was bounced out by the machine as it was tilting wildly and descending the grade and as he was making a desperate effort to ditch it.  Mr. McEvoy used the car in covering his territory as traveling salesman for the Windsor Broom Co of Hamburg, Pa.   Mr. McEvoy was a charter member of Cumberland Council, No. 5S6, Knights of Columbus and Chief Justice Tuney, General Assembly Fourth Degree Knights.  He also belonged to Cumberland Council, No. 179, United Commercial Travelers. He is survived by his wife, who was Mrs. Birdie Shearer, Frostburg, and two daughters, the Misses Sue Winter and Pauline McEvoy. Robert F McEvoy, this city, is a brother, and Miss Marie McEvoy, is a niece.

McEVOY, Joseph A.

A Well Known Citizen Died at His Home Last Evening.
Mr. Joseph A. McEvoy, one of the members of the oldest families of Cumberland, died last night at the home of his mother, corner of Smallwood and Green streets at 7:45 o'clock last evening, aged 48 years.  As the church bells were tolling he was rapidly passing into dissolution and the members of his family recognized this fact.  He died in house in which he was born.  For more than 14 years, he had been a sufferer from rheumatism and had many acute moments and minutes to his credit during his affliction.  On November 11, his 48th birthday, he fell and broke his leg which hastened his decline.  He is survived by his mother, Mrs Catherine McEvoy and two brother, Charles H McEvoy and Robert F McEvoy.  Mr McEvoy was once connected to the management of the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Co here under B F Swann.  He later engaged in a restaurant business and owned a large establishment on North Mechanic Street of which his brother, Robert F McEvoy had been manager.  McEvoy had been a partner of his brother, the late David E McEvoy and upon the death of the latter, succeeded to the entire business.  His other brother, Charles H McEvoy, is a well known traveling salesman.  His father was the late John David McEvoy who was a leading citizen in his day.  The deceased was one of the best liked men in Cumberland. His affliction extending over so many years and being so acute aroused the sympathies of many who did not know him.  But crippled as he was with the disease, he often attempted to go to his place of business and the sympathy that was extended to him was great.  Joe McEvoy was known as one of the kindest hearted men of the town and there was never a charity to which he did not contribute.  He was ever ready to help as it was in his power and best of all he never spoke an unkind work to any man.
