    Janurary 13 1900,Hazel Green Herald
    With the first day of the new year last Monday, another bloody chapter was added to the long record of crimes in Breathitt County. Late in the afternoon of that day, at a blind tiger den fourteen miles from Jackson and on the road leading from Jackson to Hazard, a difficulty arose between Irvine Fugate and James W. Noble on one side and Jake and Jerry Noble, brothers, on the other, which resulted in the killing of the two first named, who were proprietors, it is alleged, of the den. The affray was the final ending of a turkey shoot at the den. It cannot be surmised who was at fault, the courts will disclose the facts in due time, pending which rumors are withheld. The slayers, Jake and Jerry Noble, came to town and surrendered up to the authorities and are in jail awaiting examination. James W. Noble, one of the slain, leaves a wife and six children. It is said that ll theparites were related. The murdered men were buried Tuesday.

    Wesley Turner Murdered On the Streets of Jackson Election Night
    By Jake Noble, Better Known As "Bad Jake."
    County Jailer Wesley Turner, was shot and instantly killed election night by Jake Noble, better known as "Bad Jake." Turner had just returned from Canoe Fork, his home precinct, where he had been working in the election, and was walking up the street in Jackson in company with Pierce Crawford, Jr., and Marion Hall, when they met Noble. Noble stopped and asked to look at Crawford's pistol. Crawford yielding, handed the pistol to Noble, who began firing at Jailer Turner, who stood only a few feet away. Three shots took effect, and Turner died instantly.
    Noble fled down the street and was fired at several times by Hall, who also had a pistol. A posse of about one hundred men at once left in pursuit of Noble, but he has not yet been located. A second posse left the next morning in search of the slayer. Five hundred dollars reward has been offered for his arrest and it is expected that the Governor will increase this amount.
    The trouble between the men originated while Noble was confined in jail under Turner, who had only served as Jailer one year, and was one of the most popular officials in the county.
    All the city is aroused over the affray and a lynching is almost sure if an arrest is made, although much trouble is expected, as Noble is Breathitt county's most desperate character and has heretofore killed several men. The officers expect a strong resistance in making an arrest when he is located.
    As usual the night of the elections the town rang with pistol shots for several hours, beginning at dark and lasting until shortly before the killing. The officers were powerless and could not offer resistance.
