"CAMDEN"

"News Gathered from the City Across the Delaware"

Alexander Harvey, of Gloucester City, was arrested in Camden on Saturday night, and held in $500 bail by Mayor Bradshaw, on the charge of attempting to kill his son, Thomas W. Harvey, and a companion named James Dayley.  Harvey has been engaged in a divorce suit in Camden by his wife.  He has had considerable home trouble, and the arrest on Saturday resulted from this source.  On that day, it is said, he visited the abode of his wife and removed a piano.  The son, observing this, followed him and began throwing stones, when the father became exasperated and fired.  The piano was captured and placed in the Mayor’s office to await the claim of the rightful owner."
