Young Smith is Now Doubtful

Recent developments in the attempt to prove the John Smith of Horrah, Oklahoma, tend to the shaking of Mr Horace Smith's theory that the dead man is identical with the Captain Smith of the George E. Marsh. Mr George Dulmage, secretary of the Moira Lodge, is inclined to doubt the theory after searching the records of the lodge. He found that Captain Smith of Moira had been initiated in February, 1915 and got his third degree in December of the same year. Captain Smith had always been prompt in the payment of his dues. Horace Smith in an interview this morning was doubtful on account of the discrepancy of the dates and the fact that no answer was received from the master of the Lodge in Horrah. Mr Horace Smith regrets that he did not immediately go to Oklahoma to identify the late John Smith and will probably if he does not receive the photographs sent last week.
