ATTEMPT TO KILL BANKER FOR REVENGE
Bedford, Indiana, August 17 – Revenge is believed to have been the motive that prompted the attempt to murder Philip Rock, a banker and quarry owner, on a lonely road near here yesterday. Rock was seriously wounded. He carried $2,000 which was not taken by his assailants. Several years ago Rock fired into a mob of striking quarrymen, and one was killed. An attempt to avenge this killing is believed to have resulted in yesterday's attack on Rock.
