Signed “Night Itiders." Some think that the parly who wrote the note, might he the one who foully murdered the man, hut others are of the opinion that this had nothing to do with it. About two weeks ago, Stonebraker, while out in the woods, came up on a man who wai making wild cat whiskey, and it is known that the nartv wlm was making the moonshine said to Stonebraker, that if he ever told that lie was making whiskey, tie (Stonebraker) would be killed, and many are of the opinion that this is ttie man who fired the fatal shot. Mrs. Stonebraker also testified that after the note was left at their house, a jug of whiskey was left at their home, and from the taste of it they believed it contained poison, but it was never tested for the poison, Mr. Downs, it is said, stated posi tively that be believes be will be able to recognize the man, but the other man, Carter, who was with them, did not get to see the mur derer who ran off after firing the shot, and will not lie able to recog nize him.
