Dave Walker Killed G.W. McAdoo Wednesday Morning: Surrendered Today. Luther Walker Also In Jail For Threat: Happened Near Lark. Killing Followed Difficulty Over Stalk Field: Walker Caught With Still Monday
G.W. McAdoo, well know farmer of the Lark community, was shot and instantly killed Wednesday morning about 11 o'clock at the home of John DILLARD, by Dave WALKER, on whose farm MCADOO lives.
The Sheriff's force searched for Walker all day Wednesday and late up into the night, but he made his get-away across the river until early today, came to town with a friend, Tom MATCHEN, and surrendered to Sheriff GLENN.
The difficulty is alleged to have arisen over the selling of a stalk field to McAdoo. McAdoo, who was a tenant on Walker'S farm, is alleged to have sold his three-fourths interest in a stalk field.
WALKER yesterday, after making bond for being caught with a still on Monday, went to McAdoo's house to ask him about the stalk. But was informed that Mr. McAdoo had gone to a neighbor's, Mr. John Dillards, Walker went on to Dillard's and demanded that McAdoo pay him for a stalk field, whereupon it is alleged that McAdoo told him he had sold only his interest and to look to the stockman for his part. Walker then shot McAdoo, who was unarmed, it is said.
After shooting him, Walker Ran Towards The River. When Mr. Dillard Sought To Follow, it is said that Luther Walker, a brother of Dave Walker, came out of the nearby brush and told him to stop.  
Luther Walker was arrested yesterday by Sheriff GLENN and brought to town. The preliminary will likely be heard next week before the justice court here.

Dave And Luther Walker Were Held For Murder In Preliminary Hearing Wed; Remanded To Jail; Habeas Corpus Sat.
Dave and Luther WALKER of Lark were held without bail for the murdering of G.W. MCADOO near lark, in the preliminary hearing granted them by Justice of the Peace J.R. HEARN. And both were remanded to jail to await the action of the district court.
Dave Walker is alleged to have killed McAdoo, while Luther Walker was near the scene and is said to be an accomplice.
Both Walkers will be granted a Habeas Corpus hearing before District Judge George S. MARCH, Saturday.
The testimony of Mr. and Mrs John DILLARD, Ed Dillard, and Miss Jessie McAdoo, daughter of the deceased, was presented by the state. The Dillards were eye witnesses of the tragedy at their home. Their testimony corroborated.
John Dillard testified in substance that he came out of the house when Dave Walker called from the out side, Walker asked for Mr. McAdoo, who hearing his name called, came out of the door. Walker then told Mr. McAdoo that he had come after his part of a stalk field rent, whereupon McAdoo told him that he sold only his part and that because the cattle had already eaten it up and that the man would pay Walker for his part if he would present it. Walker repeated that he had come after his part of the rent and was going to get it. He then jerked out his gun and said "You God -- Son Of A -- , "I'll Kill You!" Walker then jumped towards Mr. McAdoo, raised his gun and fired with his right hand while holding the deceased by the left.  McAdoo fell and Walker is alleged to have said, according to John Dillard:  "Is He Dead?" Whereupon Mrs. Dillard is alleged to have said: "Yes"  Walker Then Replied: "Well If I Killed Him It Was An Accident." Mrs. Dillard said: "You Shot Him Down Like A Dog." Dillard testified that Walker then ran towards the river. He also testified that Luther Walker appeared a few yards away with a shotgun and at one time raised it towards the group gathered around the dead man. Dillard said that he told him to come on out and that if he did, he, Dillard would kill him.
About the same testimony was given by Mrs. Dillard and Ed Dillard.
Miss Jessie McAdoo, daughter, testified that Mrs. John Dillard called to her home across the quarter miles distance, telling them that Mr. McAdoo had been slain by Dave Walker, and that she went into the house and got her father's pistol from beneath the pillow on the bed before she ran to the DIllard home. She also testified that Dave Walker called at their home about thirty minutes before the killing, asking where her father was, and that she told him he was at Mr. Dillard's.
G.W. McAdoo, a well know farmer of the Lark community, was shot and instantly killed about 11 o'clock last Wednesday morning. McAdoo was unarmed.
