Every effort is being made to apprehend the negro Sam Meeks who wantonly murdered Bailiff Ed. Upton last Saturday night in the Oktoe Community. Sheriff James had circulates printed with a description of the fugitive, and it is hoped officials of other counties will be on the lookout for him. Meek is an intelligent negro, having traveled to some extent and will use all means to affect his escape. His brother is in jail here and it is thought he may be able to give authorities some information.
