Albert Baker's Condition.
Wounded Boy Suffering Much Pain, and Case Still Serious
The condition of Albert Baker, the boy shot by C. T. Aldrich, Jr., Saturday, is still serious. He had a bad night Saturday night, as reported by Dr. Cronin. The wound is very painful and his nervous system is completely shattered. Edward Fallon, who was one of the mill hands that held Aldrich for a few moments when Baker was trying to get away, will be a very important witness at the trial, Wednesday. He has left the employ of Aldrich. He said: "I do not care to work for a man that would shoot a boy in that way." He says that Aldrich fired the shot that struck the boy, when the latter was running. The boy's parents are determined to push the case in court.
