SECRET BURIAL J r
<

Iy
the Head
Frankfort Ky May 26 That
more than one man was killed in tHe
difficulty which resulted in the death
of Newt Hazelett in Shelby county
last Thursday night Is the belief of
1men who live in that section of Shel
by Jack Estes who lives near the
Franklin Qweriand Henry county
lines was in Frankfort today and
says he saw a man buried last Friday
the day following the trouble in
Shelby county Estes story was
about as follows
I saw a party of men come from
Owen county with a dead man who
was the brother of one of the men
accompanying the corpse They
would not talk about how the dead
man came to his death but when I
pressed for information said that the
man had shot himself accidentally
The whole top of the mans head
had been shot away He was buried
in a country graveyard near the place
where 1 live
Estes would not tell the name of
the man killed but his story left the
impression that the man had been
killed duripga raid by the night
riders either by the night riders or
by some one who was on the other
side of the question The neighbors
ae ss
saying believe that the dead man
met death at the same time as Haze
lett in some manner as yet unex
plained The secret burial and the
nature of the wound indicate that
there is some mystery about the kill
ing and it is thought here that per
haps more than one man was killed
at the time Hazelett met his death

man and the other local tobacco
men were also present
One matter of business was the
high condition in which a good
deal of the tobacco has been prized
It is not passing through the sweat
satisfactorily and some of the hogs
heads when opened are found to b
in such a condition that the buyers
are slow to take them It is sup
posed that a general conference was
called to discuss the causes and ass
