Buffalo, N.Y., June 30.—Edward Vogel and Andrew Scheeler had a dispute about a baseball game which Scheeler umpired yesterday afternoon. This evening they agreed to settle the argument with fists, and in a very lively fight Vogel struck Scheeler in the neck. Scheeler died twenty minutes later. His neck was broken. Vogel was locked up.
