1890 :: Altercation in a Restaurant


Rockdale, Tex., March 5. -- On Saturday night a negro called Fred Taylor entered the restaurant of John C. McGuire and insisted on having a seat with the white folks. This resulted in a controversy which ended by the proprietor peppering the colored citizen with a No. 38. The ball entered the lower part of the abdomen and punctured the bladder. The next morning Dr. A.C. Walker performed a surgical operation. Dallas Morning News, March 6, 1890
