Hotel Storekeeper in Fight with Frank D. Whyte

C. B. Fox, storekeeper at the Hotel Kupper, was arrested late yesterday afternoon at the E. Whyte Grocery Company's store, 1123 Walnut street, after an altercation with Frank D. Whyte, a member of the firm. Whyte received a serious cut on the neck, and Dr. Charles Wilson, who treated him, said that it would be some time before Mr. Whyte would be able to be out.

Fox was booked for investigation. William Whyte, brother of the injured man, said he would appear to prosecute the case this morning. An effort was being made last night by J. F. Fox, 51 North First street, Kansas City, Kas., to get his son out on bond. When taken to police headquarters, Fox said that Whyte had assaulted him, and that he was compelled to defend himself.
