j HKFUSKD BAIL Hii-kiuan May Heart Unwritten Law In Killing Mcldriim. Judge Woods, in the Circuit court, of Ritchie county, refused to grant bail to Ralph Hickman, held to tne grand jury for the alleged .murder of Frank Meldrum, whose dead body was found al tho foot of a cliff at the rear of'the Hickman home near Toll gale, Ritchie county several weeks ago. The application was made by Sherman Robinson. Judge Woods said that he would be compelled to refuse the application because the law did not permit him to grant bail in such a firsi degree murder case. He, however, said that he had received many letters from prominent •Ritchie county people, saying that If Hickmnn had really killed Meldurm he had done no more than right in defending the honor of his sister.
