Jones turned to speculation in an ef

two months eago, sends his regrets
that he is still l.iving, despite the
fact that be paid a man $250 to
murder him. Eble is now in New

will not commit suicide.
According to his letter Eble left
Hazleton because of marital difli
culties. All trace of hi-m was lost
until several days ago when he -was
traced to Buffalo, N. Y., by mileage
he had used. From that city he went
to New York where he obtained em
ployment. In his letter he rails bit
terly at the "coward'' who took .his
money and failed to keep, his bargain
by eppearing at the appointed time
and place to do the murder for
which he had accepted pay.
The disappearance of Eble created
