Inter Ocean in article entitled, "Buford Guilty of Murder. Sentenced Top Prison for Twenty-Nine Years -- Criminal Court
"...Maher's bondsmen are John Conway and Louis W. Mette."

5-31-1878 "City Brevities"
"Yesterday some of the performers were around trying to pick up the pieces. William Burke, claiming $190; Louis Mette, $54..."

Louis' phone # was Yards 798 in 1914.

In the 1930 census, there is a Louis Mette, single, who was living at 2495 Archer. He would have been born in 1874, and the census says he was born in IL of German parents. He was a laborer in a meat packing company living in a boarding house. Is there another Louis we don't know about ... this guy?
