Maryville Times, (Blount Co. TN) Wednesday, August 16, 1893:

“Bob Flannigan and George Russell were parties to a cutting affray yesterday about mid-day, and Russell received some hard cuts. The affair happened near Craig’s Mill in the first ward. As related by an eyewitness, the trouble was as follows: Russell was sitting near the mill when Flannigan came up and began cursing him. Russell got up and moved off a little distance, taking a seat on a fence nearby. At this point, the gentleman who witnessed the beginning of the trouble turned and went into his house. As he reached the porch he heard someone cry “Look, that man is being cut!” Turning, he saw Flannigan slashing Russell with a knife. Russell had a rock in his hand. Someone yelled for the men to fight it out fair and Flannigan dropped his knife and Russell his rock. It was immediately apparent that Russell was too weak to fight. He had received several dangerous cuts, one of them in the back being especially bad. A physician was summoned and he sewed up Russell’s wounds. There was no officer near, and Flannigan escaped. So far as known, he was not yet been captured.”
