Ile had had trouble wi h j the Tasker boys about a girl, and several times they had come to blow - in dispute over the matter. On the evening of the murder thc three boys, Tate and Russell and Decatur Tasker, attended a singing school together at a school bouw, and on their way home they had anoil, r fust. The Tacker Ikj.vs wanted to fight, hut Tate refused to fight both of them.

Tate came here and gave himself up to Sheriff Sterling, and was put in jail. Tate came to this county from West Virginia when he was about twenty-one years of age. He was living in a house near Haydentown at the time of the murder, having a woman keeping house for him. While in jail Sheriff Sterling received a letter from West Virginia stating that Tate was wanted there for poisoning his young wile, vs ho died in convulsions a short time before he left that state. There were two murder charges against him, and when notified of the letter from West Virginia he became very much alarmed. Ile had more fear of this than of the murder wf Tasker. Not long after being committed to jail Tate’s sister became \ v ry sick, and she requested that he bt allowed to visit her. Sheriff Sterling allowed him to go, in custody of Co instable O. G. C hick. While there Tate escaped through the back door of the house, and gained the mountains before the officer could recap tare him. That was just before the opening of the June term of court in lhso, and since that time he has been at large. Process after process has been issued for his ■arrest, but he successfully evaded the Qfflo&ri In every attempt to capture him. The first news given of the murderer was learned from Bill Turner, w ho was in jail about two years ago for being a member of the Cooley gang. He informed authorities that Tate was living in southern part of the county, West Virginia line. Deputy General Lyon was killed.
