Interests Of Cherokee
At a mass meeting of depositors
of the defunct Cherokee bank here
Wednesday afternoon, J. B. Gray,
local lawyer, was elected to name
a committee of five persons to act

plan outlined by Smith Medlin, of
the state banking department,
Those selected to serve on the
committee were: H. B. Elliott, Murphy.

Harris; J. S. Keener, Tomotla; W.
A. Evans, Ranger, and J. F. Wood,
The plan outlined, and later to be
advertised, would have the committee
list and evaluate the assets of the
bank and these would be compared
with the liabilities.
Publi- sale of the properties would
be made. Medlin explained in the
outline, and settlements with the
creditors and debtors would be made
through this manner thus ending the
need for further expenses of a liquid
However the liquidating agents,
under the plan, would reserve the
right to reject bids which they
thought were too low.
Medlin explained the plan in detail
and answered a number of questions
coming from the floor. A unanimous
vote gave Mayor Gray the
right to select the committee which
lc did after the approval of a number
of those present.
Approximately 200 people attended

MAN'S HEAD FOUND
BY SURVEY PARTY
Th head of a man, said to havo
been identified by the Maryville,
Tenn., sheriff as a Calhoun from the
lower end of Swain county, was
found and reported by a group of
surveyors in the woods just over the
Tennessee line in the Tapoca section
of Graham county last week.
No word has been received as to
the discovery so far of the body or
persons connected with the killing.
With the disappearance of a Cherokee
county boy and strange tales of
the weird discovery coinciding, much j
interest was raised in this section.
Wide spread reports were prevalent
that the head had its hair slicked
back and was a gruesome, smiling
spectacle found on a stump. No
authoi itative credit has been given
to the rumors
