Estep is bound over Without Bail
At the preliminary hearing of Alfred J. Eastep, charged jointly with Mrs. Ila Hughes with the murder of Will Hughes of Utica, held Monday afternoon in the District Court Room before Justice H. M. Young, he was held without bond pending his trial before the District Court.
It was estimated that some two or three thousand people jammed the courtrooms, the corridors and the lawn of the courthouse in an effort to hear the proceedings of the court.
Mrs. Ila Hughes alleged conspirator with Eastep in the case, had previously waived preliminary hearing and will await further action of the District Court.
Trying for Beauty
The Civic Club is trying to beautify the front door of Caddo, that is the railroad right of way on Main Street. This is the first glimpse the traveler gets of our town from either direction.
First impressions are lasting, so the Civic club wishes to beautify this part of town; perhaps in the near future they may be able to get this ground set aside as a park for play and show purposes.
The Herald believes the railroad company will aid in this plan and give the help necessary so they will need the support all citizens to bring it to pass.
Mrs. Hancock, Mrs. Meadows, and Mrs. Harris compose the Civic Club committee that has the matter in charge.
