Thornton, living at No. 831 Columbus Avenue, where the shooting occurred, the assailant being Valentine Dick, who lives in the same block.

The children had quarreled but nothing had been thought of it, but this time the trouble was so serious that the parents became involved and it resulted in Dick drawing a revolver and shooting Thornton four times, once in the shoulder, once in the neck, and twice in the thigh.

William Henry Beales, night captain of the police department, died yesterday morning at 4:30 o'clock at his home, No. 71 Cherry street. The deceased was forty-nine years of age. For ten months he has been in declining health. He was first taken with stomach trouble which gradually became acute. In the middle of April Mr. Beales thought that possibly a short rest and change would do him good. He therefore asked for a two weeks' vacation. As he did not improve materially during this period of rest, the police commission gave him a three month's furlough dating from May 1. Since that time he has gradually wasted away until death came yesterday morning. The physicians state that the cause of death was gastritis. The deceased was born in this city and has lived here throughout his life. After attending the public schools of the city he was employed for a period with William and Thomas Smith. But for the larger part of his life he has been employed on the police department. The period of his service extends over twenty-two years. He was elected patrolman by the village board of trustees May 16, 1883. He served in this capacity until September 12, 1898, when he became captain and was assigned to night duty. This position he has held up to the present time. Throughout this long period of service the records of the department show that he has faithfully and conscientiously performed his duty. Besides his career in the police department, Mr. Beales was active in a number of social institutions. He has been a member of Ark lodge, No. 33, Free and Accepted Masons, since 1898. He was also a member of Geneva Tent No. 292, Knights of the Maccabees. In this order he had a $2000 insurance policy.
