Slayer of Beason
Moved To Another
Jail; Tells Of It
Information from Rutherfordton
lias It that George Connor, fifty-two
year old man, held without bail for
killing Clyde Beason, Cleveland
county native., Sunday afternoon at
Cliffside, has been moved to anoth
cr jail from Rutherfordton by Sher
iff w. c. Hardin.
When asked why the prisoner
was moved Sheriff Hardin said
that while he thought the prisoner
would have been save in the Ruth
erford jail it was a move made for
added safety and for the good of
the county, refusing otherwise to
comment upon any reports about a

Officers here today stated that
Connor had not been placed in the
Cleveland county Jail.

entered the Cliffside cafe with Bea

brawl in which young Beason was
killed, li/es, it Is learned near Mt.
Pleasant Baptist church in this
Tells Of Killing.
The Rutherford Sun gives Con
nor's story of the killing as fol
After giving his name, age, ad
dress and occupation, Connor in re
ply to questions said he could not
account for the killing. He had
been in the cafe waiting for some
friends; his knife had been in his
hand, it was opened; just why he
was holding the knife lie did not
know or could not recall. Clyde
Beason, he said, came in the eat
ing place; he greeted him, for^they
had always been good friends—
there had never been a quarrel or
words of any kind between them.
For some reason, just why he did
not know, Connor alleged, Beason
had cursed him violently. He had
told the younger man not to curse
him again, but he had done it, and
at the same time had either hit
him or thrown a bottle at him
which had struck on the side of his
head, he could not recall which
had happened. “After the bottle hit
me,” said Connor, I knew nothing;
I was in a kind of dare—my head
still hurts.” After a pause the pri
soner stated, "I stated to him, ‘Look
out, Clyde. I’ve got a kniie in my
hand, I might cut you!’ and Clyde
said, ‘You’ve already done it.’ I
can't remember any more. My head
hurts me. Clyde and me were
friends, I wouldn't have hurt him—
I don t remember—I'm still in a
kind of daze.”
