Jack Dcbose, a negroof suspicious looks
aod demeanor, had been arrested by W.
A. Kitchen, the sheriff of Cherokee
county, tin., and was held as sn escape J
convict, who, it is claimed, is the mur
derer of the Woolfolk fain i If, and for
which Tom Woolfolk is in j lil at Atlnnta,
(la. While confined in jail the nrgio
said enr ugh to warrant the sheriff in noti
fying Mr. Walker that he was of the
opinion that tho negro wss concerned in
the Woolfolk tragedy, and Mr. Walker
came up and Lad a Ulk with ths negro,
and now expresses himself as fcelipg per
fectly satisfied, almost beyond a doubt,
that the negro srrrstcd and In jail is the
real murderer of the Woolfolk family, or
rather that he is concerned in the whole
sale killing. Since Mr. .Wslkrrtook hold
of the esse he has, by consultation with
many and visiting the scenv of thn mur
der, and remaining in the neighlwhood
at a tramp painter, learned that four ne
groes did the killing, or rather that one
did the killing aod the other thrco were
accessories, and robbed the hnne while
the killing was being done. The name
of these negroes he also tditnliicd 1 1 con
versation with the negro confined In J.iil.
The negro admitted knowing who did it,
and promised to te'l Mr. Walker if lie
would promise to help him outright, but
finally succeeded in Inducing the negro
U tell him who the three oihrrs were
that were associated with him in
the killing. These names agree per
fectly wiihthoso previously Iciirn
ed by Walker fopm other sources, and
while in the vicinity of the killing. Col
onel Walker is satisfied and fa I very
confident that the negro is the party who
held tho ax, and did the killing, nnd ex
pects to prove these facts bcyon I any
doubt whatever. He is greatly rejoiced
over what he has heaid thus far and will
have another talk with the negro
when he hopes to learn nuh
more of direct fntrrest and eicld im
portance to himself snd client. Certain
it is that this negro knows enough to im
plicate others besides Tom Woolfolk as
the murderer of the Woolfolk family,
w hether lie implicates himself or clear
Tom Woolfolk of it or not; at least
this is Mr. Wslker's honest opinion.
