Death of Wife Ends
Family of Four
AUBURN, Ind., June 24.—A blood
feud of unparalleled vindictiveness
against the old and young generations
of the family of James W. Sheffer
found its culmination early today
when Mrs. Cora Sheffer. the mother
and last survivor of a once happy
family, succumbed to the bullets of
the assassin who waylaid her and
her husft.>nd as they drove into the
dark garage late Thursday evening.
Police ire still questioning Nie
Sheffer ai intervals, but have been
unable to break down his reticence.
Two revolvers said to have been
owned by Nie, a brother of the dead
man, were found wrapped in an old
shirt bur ed in a creek near the tent
where Nt 3 lived.
One of them was shown him and he
denied ever having owned it. Au
thorities declare it was in his posses
sion at the time the home of James
Sheffer was dynamited In January,
1921, and two children were killed and
the parents injured.
The ether gun was an automatic
pistol of .26 caliore said to be the one
with which Mr. and Mrs. Sheffer were
killed. It was not Bhown to the
County officers continued grilling

They said he weakened perceptibly
when they told him James Sheffer,
the dead man, was recovering
strength and whispered that he had
something to tell.
It was discovered that Nie's trous
ers and shoes and sox were wet
when he was arrested shortly after
the shooting. One of the sox was
in Che tent and the other was found
neat by today.
The theory is that his clothing be
came wet when he waded into the
creek near his tent to bury the guns.
With the guns were twenty-six cart
ridges of .32 calibre, two magazines
of cartridges for the small pistol, one
of which was full and the other con
taining five cartridges.
Nie is said to have had an argument
with his brother over money matters.

was acting In the capacity of an at
torney and not a.s secretary of the
board of pardons, and why the fee
charged for the services was so large.
Mr. Seidensticker said Governor
Goodrich was informed he was acting
as an attorney, and that the fee was
6500, and not SBOO, as stated by Smith,
and that the amount of the fee was
not asked but offered.
Seidensticker said a payment of
SIOO first was made and that two
other payments were maße, the last
amounting to either S2OO or $250 be
ing paid after Smith had been re
leased from the penal farm.
Governor McCray declined to com
ment on the case except to say that
he did not believe acounts of the
case had clearly stated that Seiden
sticker's action had been purely as a
private attorney and not as secretary
of the pardon board.
“I acted as an attorney in pardon
cases but twice during the Goodrich
administration.” Mr. Seidensticker
said today “and those were in penal
farm cases.”
Official records show that Smith was
paroled by Former Governor James
Goodrich, Oct. 16, 1920, on recom
mendation of Charles J. Orbison, at
that time Federal prohibition director
for Indiana.
The files contain a letter from Or
bison to the Governor saying Smith
had served ninety days of the 180 given
him in city court July 12. 1920, for
violation of liquor laws, that Smith
had an excellent record and an in
valid wife was dependent upon him.
It would be an act of humanity to
parole him, the letter stated.
“If anybody criticizes you for this,”
the letter continues, “you can use
this letter for justifleatoin.”
The parole shows Governor • Good
rich took action on recommendation of
Orbison. The records do not show the
case ever was before the pardon board.
Smith’s fine was paid and, accord
ing to the story Smith told Judge An
derson. after serving 78 days he was
released after his wife had paid SBOO
to Seidensticker, secretary of the par
don board for his release.

“Children who are not under su

the number of playgrounds was In
creased the problem of the court de
creased. There Is no doubt play
grounds axe one of the finest things
we have for the welfare of children.
“Most of the children who come
Into my court are from homes which
have no yards. There Is a front door
step and a hot, dusty stretch of side
walk and street instead. Aside from
the danger of accidents nobody will
argue a street Is an uplifting at
mosphere in which to permit children
to develop. I notice there Is a cam
paign on to keep children out of the
streets. "Where are they going if the
city does not provide places? Owners
of private property drive the boys out
for fear of broken window lights.
“I am of the belief that we do not
provide enough play facilities even
while school is In session. We have
the child problem with us twelve

of the most Important factors of It."

CANTON, China, June 24—The fu

old man,” was held today. v He passed
away at ehe Christian College Hos
pital after a brief illness which was
directly attributable to the military
coup that destroyed the Southern
China republic In which he had been
a moving spirit.
One of Wu Ting-Fang’s last acts b*.

The provincial assemblA requested
