wife of Henry Waldron, who escaped
early Monday morning from the jury
hearing the evidence in the trial of
Dr. B. Clarke Hyde, accused 6f the
murder of Colonel Thomas H. Swope,
has had word from the fugitive, is
the belief today of deputies of the
county prosecutor's office who in vain
have been trying to locate WaMron.
A strange man who visited the Wald
rcn home last night and held a whis
pered chnversation with Mrs. Waldron
aroused suspicion in the minds of the
officers and dispelled the belief that
Waldron is mentally deranged and
wandering, or has killed himself. The
little daughter of WaMron today, in
nocently talking to Deputy Marshall,
said that her father had served on
two juries at Roswell, New Mexico,
and} that he tried to get away, but
could not.
"Why?".she was -asked.
"Because they caught him,'* the lit
