MICHIGAN CITY, IND., February 24. James Gleason, the local editor of the Evening news, was assaulted yesterday morning by John Graham, a wrestler from Brooklyn, N.Y. and badly punished. Gleason had attacked his assailant in the News, charging him with traveling under an assumed name and engaging in hippodrome matches. The compositors were present at the time, but did not interfere. Graham immediately gave himself up, but was released on bail. His trial will be held to-day.
