Killing at Wheelerville
Information reached this city yesterday of the assassination of Calvin
Taylor, an old and respected farmer, in the vicinity of Wheelerville, (Jefferson
thirteen miles west of this city, at midnight Tuesday night.
He had just returned from a hunt and was eating his supper when the report
of a double barrel shot gun rang out in the stillness of the night air and
Mr. Taylor fell dead, both loads entering his right side.
The assassin escaped under cover of the darkness. There is a general
opinion prevailing in the neighborhood that the assassination grew out of a
criminal case soon to be tried in the city court wherein Mike Fincher is
defendant on a charge of criminal assault, the daughter of Taylor being the
Sheriff Holcombe left yesterday afternoon for the scene of the killing to
make an investigation and will not return until this morning.
