Article Description: A Hard Man.
Phillip DIGNAN, a hard man, claiming to belong to No. 99 East Van Buren street, started in
to clean out the den at No. 488 Clark street yesterday afternoon. He hit Lizzie WILLIAMS
in the eye with a spitoon, and got along famously until he ran across the barkeeper T. L.
SMITH. He hit SMITH with a bottle, but the rumseller was a harder man than Philip, and
when the police got around and arrested al the parties in the fight SMITH was on top.
City Physician DUNNE attended to DISNAN, and after he had sewed on his left ear and work
some sampler patterns with white silk and silver wire on his head, the patient, who was
rather tired, was put to bed in his cell.
