Constables Club Citizens
A. W. Wieters, president and treasurer of the Consumers Ice Company and his brother, R. D. Wieters, were severely clubbed by dispensary constable in Charleston a few days ago.
The constables went to the place of Wieters to make a raid and he closed the door against them. They gained access through another entrance and at once engaged in a controversy with him in which harsh language was used.
The constables were armed with pistols and billies and the latter were used upon Wieters until he was insensible.
In the meantime a messenger was sent for A. W. Wieters, president of the ice company. When he arrived on the scene he protested against the treatment accorded his brother and he also was clubbed.
Both men were painfully though not seriously bruised about the head and face. The constables say they were grossly insulted by language used by Wieters.
The Wieters brothers are both men of property and are well known in the city.
