REPORT  OF  SHOOTING  CIRCULATED  TODAY
----------
Report  of  Encounter  in  Which  One  Man  Shot  at  Another
in  a  Quarrel  Over  a  Woman.
----------
(From Monday's Daily.)
            The report of a shooting which is said to have taken place Saturday night at the resort of  Kate Hoyt, east Broadway street, is in circulation today, and the principals are said to have been  Ed. Mayhew  and  Joe Ballard.  A former encounter between the two men over a woman, an inmate of the resort is recalled and lends credibility to the reported encounter believed to have taken place Saturday night.  Mayhew is said to have shot once at Ballard.  Whether or not the shot took effect has not been learned, since Ballard has been upon the streets today apparently uncathed[sic].  The police were reticent about the affair, not one admitting that the shooting had taken place, or that they knew any details of the affair.  From the wide circulation the rumor of the shooting has had it is thought that police will investigate.
