FELL DOWN THE STAIRS
William Finan, Glassworker, Seriously
Injured on Stairs Leading to Union
Labor Hall — Head Was Badly
William Finan, a well-known glass worker and union labor leader, while ascending the stairway leading to Union Labor hall in the Patterson building last night at 10:30 o'clock, slipped and fell to the bottom. Patrolman Grant Curtis and Ralph O. Deaton, who were standing near the stairway entrance heard Finan's body bumping over the steps, and, rushing to his assistance, thought him to be fatally injured.
He was in an unconscious condition when Dr. Harry R. Spickermon made an examination of his injuries. Finan received an ugly laceration above his right eye, the blow which caused it having been responsible for his unconsciousness. There were also several abrasions on his head. It was more than an hour before the injured man rallied to consciousness. He was taken to his home in the eastern part of the city.
It was learned that Finan was going to the dance in Union Labor hall when the accident occurred.
