A Baker's Sad Experience with a Supposed Doctor - Light Thrown on the Cast
by Police

Joseph BURKHART, a baker, of No. 168 Harrison avenue, at two o'clock this
morning started out in quest of a doctor for a sick friend. In Broadway he
met a man of whom he inquired the way, when the man replied that he himself
was a physician. BURKHART joyfully invited his acquaintance to return with
him, and the stranger being taken to the sick man's bedside felt his pulse,
examined his tongue, and then stating that the man was likely to die,
recommended that an additional physician should be sent for. BURKHART at
once acted upon the suggestion, but says that he was followed to the
sidewalk by his supposed medical acquaintance who, without any provocation,
struck him a sever blow in the face. The police were notified and Officer
MCCAFFREY arrested Thomas SMITH, an agent of No. 45 Tompkins avenue. Mr.
BURKHART says that the prisoner is the man, and the police say that SMITH is
a very hard character, having served five years in Sing Sing for burglary,
and only lately gotten out of the Penitentiary, where he sent for assaulting
Officer JANICKE.
