Charles Bischoff Sustains Fracture of Skull
and Expires Before Reaching Emergency Hospital

Charles Bishoff, 57, a brewer, boarding at 336 North Third West street, died shortly after midnight from what is believed to be the result of a fall to the sidewalk in front of the Schlitz cafe, 217 South State street. His skull was fractured and his face severely cut. He never regained consciousness and, although rushed to the emergency hospital within a few minutes, died before reaching medical aid. Dr. W. S. Keyting said it was difficult to tell whether the man died as the result of the fall or whether he was attacked with apoplexy. Several bystanders said the man was intoxicated.
Bischoff had lived with Fred Finke, 336 North Third West street, for the past year. He had been separated from his family. Up to a late hour this monring his relatives had not been located.
