Joseph Slavin, who was on Saturday night brutally beaten by some men connected with a traveling circus that night exhibiting in Mount Vernon, was still unconscious yesterday, and it is feared he will die. Two men have been arrested, charged with having been implicated in the assault, and they will be held to await the result of his injuries. Those two men were arrested Monday night in Port Chester, where the circus was performing.
