Frank Slavens, a laborer, charged with shooting at B.F. Newton, a well repairer, during a quarrel on July 16, was sentenced to six months in jail by Justice Wieman this morning.
Slavens was formerly employed by Newton in the repair shop at 3000 East Eighteenth street. About three weeks ago he was discharged. On July 16, Newton testified, Slavens again asked for work and when it was refused pulled a revolver from his pocket and fired one shot at him. Slavens was allowed to plead guilty to a charge of common assault and accept a jail sentence.
