financial support of the schools.
Arrested for Van Pelt Murder
Aaron B. Cooley has been arrest­
ed in San Francisco for the murder
of Thomas Van Pelt in Curry coun­
ty about fifteen years ago. It will
be remembered that two murders
occurred closely following each oth­
er, I. A. Coolidge being shot from
ambush a short time before the kill­
ing of Van Pelt. A feud had arisen
over land and Van Pelt was blamed
for the killing of Coolidge, with the
result that he met a like fate. No
evidence was found in either case
that would justify a prosecution,
but it is inferred that detectives
have now unearthed sufficient evi­
dence to warrant the arrest of
Cooley.
