Were two people whose last names

This is the question which has
Sheriff E. Y. Ponder stumped at the
present. Sheriff Ponder told this
newspaper that he had found no rec
ord of any murder being committed
in this county in 1913 but that he
is still searching for records which
might bring light on a letter he re
cently received from H. W. McClel
land, Chief of Police of New Phila
After reading the letter, Sheriff
Ponder contacted Haywood County
officials and they, also, have no ree- '
ord of a murder there in 1913.
The following letter is published
so that any information which
might be supplied concerning the
murder might bemade known:
