The Rutland county grand jury which was recalled to consider the charge
of the State against John Siska of South Poultney Monday afternoon
returned a true bill against the man, who is charged with assault with
intent to kill while armed with a dangerous weapon.The respondent is to
be tried at the present term of Rutland county court. John Brannick,
another South Poultney Polander, was nearly killed early this month,
when he was attached with a large knife and wounded in four places, the
knife penetrating the left lung, Brannick, who is at the Rutland
hospital, will recover.
