Lodged in Jail for Shooting His Brother

John Dougherty, aged 26, residing near Gallitzin, a track walker of the Pennsylvania railroad, died at the Altoona hospital Sunday from a bullet wound in his abdomen. He was shot Saturday night by his brother, Charles, also a track walker, a short distance from their home, while they were on their way to work. They quarreled and Charles drew a revolver and fired five times at his brother. The first shot took effect. Leaving the wounded man by the road, Charles went onto work and reported his brother off sick. John was found later and Saturday he was taken to Altoona to die. Charles was arrested and is in jail at this place.
