KILLS CHAUFFEUR IN HIS WAY.

The New York Times
December 23, 1909


Youth Hit Autoist with a Lantern After He Returned to His Garage.

Special to The New York Times.

PATERSON, N. J., Dec. 22.—Benjamin Newsome, employed as a chauffeur by Henry F. Bell, President of the Citizens' Trust Company, died to-day at the General Hospital from the effects of a blow he received Monday night while working in the rear of the Bell home. Newsome believed that he had been struck by some instrument that had been tossed in the air by small boys, but the police to-night arrested Arthur Veneman of 116 East Holsman Street, and he confessed that he struck Newsome with a lantern.

"We had an argument earlier in the day," he said, "because Newsome would not get out of my way when I was driving up the road. I told him I would see him later, and I kept my word."

Veneman, who is 22 years old, was locked up on a charge of murder.
