Groom Shot Cousin
Thinking that T. K. Seay was
one of the cons'tables who came
- aiter h im at his home il Melhore.
Ala. to arrest him on a warrant
from Sulphur iSprings, Tex.,
ClIande Hackleman, a bridc
groomi of a few davys,fired from1 a.
win-dow, killing the former ont
right. When he saw his terrible
mistake, he came out and sur
r*enidered to the officer.
Hacklemuan, who was married
last Saturday to Miss Inez Kidd,
a ted2'2, daughter of William M.
Kidd, w.th wiom he has been in
business in Melborne since last
June , at which time he came to
this part of the country from
Texas. When Hackleman and
his prosp ctive bride realized
that the young lady's father
was averse to the match, they
decided last Saturday to be
marriedi secretly. Hackleman,
who lived in the same house with
the girl, took her to a nearby
minister, who solemnized their
marriage.
Mr. Kidd was furious. He had
learned something of the reputa
tion of Hackleman in Texas,
which was anythig: but:'of the
best, andl he heard that the man
was wanted at Sulphur Springs.
He accordingly wired the au
thorities at the latter place, tell
ing them where they could find
their man. Beverly Matthews,
justice of the peace here, was
wired this morning by an offi
cer from Sulphur Springs to ar
rest Hackleman. Matthews
ttirned the warrant over to Con
stable Loftis, of Columbus, who
;left for Melbourne in search of
Hackleman.
Being an officer from Missis
sippi, he of o1rse had to be
