Sheriff DeFord has now caged all
the parties occurred accused of assist-
ing the Christian outlaws to break
jail at Oklahoma City. Amond those
arrested is a noted deputy marshal,
l>ill Carr, whose career in the wild
country southeast of here, reads like
a romance. A Star reporter gives the
following regarding him:
Hill Carr. the other party brought
in, is a character known throughout
Oklahoma and the entire Indian coun-
try of the southwest as a fearless and
thorough officer, and his arrest will
cause surprise and wonder among the
huudreds of people who know him.
Carr is a fine looking man, a Virgin-
ian, whose record as a marshal reads
like a fairy tale. Hill came to Okla-
homa before the boom and lirst came
into conspicuous notice .July 4, 1887.
Hill was watching a game in the Cim-
arron bottoms and observed a big
bluffer and all round tough fleecing a
young fellow out of his money. Carr
came into the game after the young
fellow had departed. After playing a
while he accused "Coyote Dave," who
had killed a man or two, of eheating.
"Coyote" admitted that he had cheat-
ed, and wanted to know what Hill was
going to do about it. "Coyote Dave's"
funeral was appointed for the next
•lay ami the corpse was ready. Three
holes did the business.
A few days later a wild chap from
the Hra/.os country put a hole through
the city marshal of Purcell and lit out
for where this city now stands. Hill
was appointed city marshal in Purcell
and followed the trail of the bold
Hra/.os chap. Well, the chap turned
on Hill and then there was another
killing. For this killing Hill was tried
in Wichita. Kansas, but came back
cleared and the boys lynched one of
the main witnesses who swore against
him, "Horse Thief Johnny." Carr
was on the scene in time to help plant
Hill hail for his assistant Joe Me-
Nally, and the two had their prison
dug back in the hills some three miles
from town and when any of the pris-
oners inside attempted to escape a dose
of cold lead settled the board bill.
The camp was on the hill and com-
manded a good view of the prison.
Henry Austin, a full blooded Chicka-
saw Indian, who had been killing peo-
ple and stealing horses indiscriminate-
ly for a number of years, had been do-
ing some new deviltry for which he
was very particularly wanted at Fort
Smith, and, as the saying goes, about
that time the old varmint had the
whole country "buffalood," Hill Carr
excepted. Hill rode out near this fel-
low's lair and waited and watched for
him day and night, and the first time
he showed his scalp lock Carr stepped
out to arrest him, but he wouldu't
have it that way, so the upshot of it
was they banged away at each other
about aii hour, until Hill had putnped
enough lead into the old Indian's c*r-
eass to load him down, when Hill piled
hiin across his horse and landed him
into town. The Indian recovered and
was afterwards hung at Ft. Smith.
About the worst fight Carr ever had
was when lie went with a small posse
after Franklin and Washington, two
of tin- very toughest of tough negro
horse thieves. Hefore they reached
the cabin one of the possemen was
killed This raised Hill's dander ami
he set fire to the brush in the rear of
the cabin. which soon outed the
thieves, which proved to be a band of
five instead of two.
As fast as they showed themselves
Carr's ready Winchester gave them a
welcome. Two were left on the
ground for hog food, the other three
were landed at Ft. Smith where they
were healed of their wounds sufficient-
ly to stretch hemp at the close of the
next term of 1 nele Sam's court.
At a later date Carr picked off three
bootleggers at the Red river bridge,
killing two outright and wounding the
third so he died next day. On his re-
turn from that trip he was thrown
from his horse and had his leg broken.
He fell in love with the girl who
nursed him, anil added another to his
private hurrying ground, "Cherokee
Red," a ruflln who tried to pick him off
his horse while taking his bride home.
Later Carr settled down as a store
' keeper at Violet Springs, near the
present home of the Christians. Hut
that sort of life didn't suit him, it
wasn't Hill's gait ami he couldn't stay
in the harness.
In the spring of '04 Marshal Nix sent
him a warrant for Hill Daltou, sup-
posed to be near Violet Springs. He
received a eall from Hill Dalton aud
Slaughter Kid They got the drop on
Carr in his own store and shot him
three times. Shot as he was he drove
them from the store.
Later he sold his store and since he
has been acting as a deputy United
States marshal. <>f late he has been
carrying mail to and from the Chris-
tians, and so conducted himself as to
excite the suspicion of the sheriff, re-
sulting in his arrest and incarcera-
It is quite probable Carr was gam-
ing favor with the Christians with a
view of pulling the Christians him-
self and obtaining the rewards out for
their capture, as it is known that he
has done as during deeds iu the past,
aud but few of our frontier marshals
have lived to rid the country of so
many desperate characters as Hill
Whether guilty or not guilty of the
charge for which lie Is now in prison,
law loving people admire the courage
of this man's past career.
LOYAL TO OKLAHOMA.
Oood Ad* Ire From Former Keal.lent of

The writer does not claim to have
the blessed #ift or growth of optimism
but she does realize the sublimity of
plain and unvarnished truth, a little
of which commodity she wishes to
present to the reader in behalf of
much abused, but at the present sit-
ting, still prosperous Oklahoma.
People stay here aud curse the coun-
try—why, iu the name of all that is
good and great, don't they go away'.'
if they pine for the bracing air of the
north, the culture of the east or the
equable climate of the sunny south,
why don't they scatter to their re-
spective affinities? Auy country can
dispense with all the grumblers and
exist just the same.
The writer is from cosmopolitan
Michigan, but took the train three
yearn ago this mouth from a place
called Hannister, in the county of |
Oratiot, (Mich). She hopes she is
patriotic and loves her country, faith*
ful, aud admires her state, and it is not
to be denied that her slumbers are
sometimes broken by visions of the
Maple river, that the odor of hepaticAS
and trailing arbutus, feathery ferns
ami water lilies come to her in dreams,
aud a ride through the thick green
pines one moonlight night when the
horses hoofs made no sound on the
pine needles, and the trees seemed
leaning to tell awful secrets in whisp-
ers that only those who have been in
the pines know, makes the tears seem
very near, still the writer realizes that
those pictures are largely made preci-
ous by lapse of time—"as distance
lends enchantment to the view." And
she can reflect that the same familiar
old sun that has been baking *'Okla-|
homy" and causing "soreheads" to j
howl, baked the sands of northern |
Michigan till, as one correspondent
writes, there are thousands of acres j
there not worth a cent an acre. That
the same moon and stars that come up
in the hush of the night over the dear
old Wolverine state roll on here and
silver anil diamond our little eity that
we are here and Ood is here—why I
should one walk the red earth, breath ;
the free air aud eat wf the fruit of a
land and then curse it?
This is a pleasant climate, deny it ;
who may. It is true one feels languid |
here in summer, after the rigors of a
northern winter: but if the writer |
might suggest—with hope of protee- |
tion from the press in case of mob—
one also felt languid at the north dur-
ing the months of July and August,
with the disadvantage of more boiling
nights than days.
"The dust blows here! It sticks to
the starched clothes!" Well, granted.
Shall one who lived close between a
stave aud heading factory on one side
and the bellowing cars on the other
lift an impious voice against Clod's
winds because they sometimes bring
"Thechiggers bite so! We are all
lumps!" Yes. and the writer (is she
the only one?) remembers of burning
a bushel of letters to serve the double
purpose of lightening her trunk and
keeping at bay a swarm of mosquitoes
that, while not equalling those vouch-
ed for that pierced an iron potash ket-
tle with their bills, still were fierce
enough to make as large lumps as any
chigger would dare to make.
This is a healthful climate. 1 have
the solemn "Alfred Davids" to that
effect of several friends that came
here afflicted. One lady from F.l Paso,
Texas, came here with terrible head-
aches; she never had one after mak-
ing tliis her home Another friend
from Nebraska was dying with ca-
tarrh. add now lives to superintend
her own claim in happy emancipation
from that dread malady. Her hus-
band was a helpless invalid—crippled
by rheumatism —and he at present
earns his living by hard manual labor.
One lady from sturdy Maine, praises
this climate without limitation. Now
these people are not "boomers." 'l'hey
have no axes to grind, and only told
me these things incidentally. No
doubt they would tell the reader the
same. 1 am sorry for the homesick.
My heart yearns over those who. with
one linger on the map of Outhrie and
another on that of their far-away
home, lay their faces down between
them in bitter tears, and when think-
ing of the remark of a friend, that If
she could again see some of the dear,
green sod of Michigan, she would
kneel down and kiss it, I feel tliat if
possible I would be at her side to as
sist in that solemn ceremony; still
Oklahoma is now my home, and I
should stand up for her even in the
presence of dear old Michigan, should
1 ever again set foot on her sacred
soil. J- II-

weekly review of trade says: It is not
the season for the tide of business to
rise, but there is not perceived scarce-
ly any shrinkage except that which
comes naturally with midsummer heat.
The volume of new business is small

advances in returns to labor. Impor-
tant strikes show that the advance is
not enough for some, but the strikers

Accounts of shrinkage in the yield
of wheat come from both Pacific states
and from the Dakotas. It would be a
strange and unnatural July without
such reports, and yet they have weight
enough this year to lead even the most
experienced to reduce somewhat their
estimate of yield, while the price has
advanced II cents. Light western
receipts for the week were not a third
of last year's, and for four weeks only
ft,300,003 bushels, against 11,08.'!,010 last
year, strengthen adverse reports,
because the price a year ago
was about 30 cents lower
than it is now. The western
movement largely depends on the ex-
port demand, which is phenomenally
light, Atlantic shipments for the week
having been—flour included—only
071,SOI bushels, against 3,818,006 last
year, and for four weeks only 3,500,-

advanced about 1 percent, with wheat,
but has since lost all of the gain. Cot-
ton has remained unchanged at 7 cents,

estimates of the yield, a circular by

Ciikyk.nnk, Wyo., July 28.—Adjt-
Gcn. Stitzer has forwarded his report
of the Indian trouble to the governor.
It is quite a lengthy document uud
covers fully the causes leading to tho
trouble. It says: "In an interview
on Sunday with four prominent resi-
dents of Jackson's Hole, the fol-
lowing statements wero given me as
grounds for the action of tho settlers.
They claimed that the Hannocks, Sho-
shoncs aud Lctnhis have for tho past
six years slaughtered game in large
numbers, mainly for their hides. In
1804, after repeated appeals from the
county authorities of Fremont and
Uintah counties, tho interior deparment
ordered that no more passes should
be given the Indians allowing them
to leave the reservation for the pur-
pose of hunting. It is estimated that
ft,ooo elk Wci-e killed in that year.
This year tho settlers on Jackson's
Hole determined to enforce tho law
against the Indians and whites alike.
On July 2 eight Itannocks were ar-
rested for killing game, aud six
of them were lined 87."> and costs
and sentenced to jail until the
fine was paid. They escaped from
their guard and on July 10 more of the

tempted to escape after trial aud were
fired on by the whites, several of them
being killed. On July 9 (apt. John

The I'roHeeutlon Sprint;* m Suyrlno In the
Taylor .Hinder Trial
Cariioli.ton. Mo., July as. - When
the Taylor trial was resumed this
morning Dr. D. I Stevenson, of Lln-
nous, a witness for tho defense, was
allowed to testify in order that he
might return to his practice, lie said
that he had been requested two weeks
ago by Albert Taylor, a brother of the
defendants, to examine the sides of
the wagon and tho wagon bed. He
did so with a microscope of 500 magni-
fying power and found no blood on
any part of it. On the cross-examina-
tion he said that after fourteen months
had elapsed all traces of blood would
have been obliterated by time and the
weather. He was not a profitable wit-
ness for the defense.
A witness who did not testify at tho
last trial was A. .1 Freeman, of Bruns-
wick, Chariton county. Ho went to
Linucu-i the Wednesday morning fol-
lowing the murder und went to the
farms of Oeorge an I James Taylor. In
James Taylor's pasture he found where
a tiro had and fragments of
burned bedding and clothes, a piece of
burned trousers, the clasp of a pocket-
book and some feathers. The burned
space was 130 feet from George Tay-
lor's house. Tho burne I fragments
were introduced in evidence. The in
troduction of this testimony was en-
tirely unexpected and caused a decided
sensation. Oeorge Taylor stared at
them and then began an animated con-
versation with his counsel and his
friends. Freeman two years ago was
a special detective under Chief llarri-
gan, of St. Louis, lie is now deputy
state game and fish warden.
Mrs. Martha Meeks, the mother of
tins Meeks, was asked if she could
identify the burned fragment of trou-
sers found by Freeman. She Ha Id the
cloth was part of the trousers worn by
her son the night of the murder. She
could not identify the clasp of the
pocketboolc belonging to Ous' wife,
but recognized the bed as having been
taken away by her son the night he
was killed and part of a picture frame.
She burst into tears as one by one the
articles were passed to her.

tlou Whether I.old llax Appreciated
Cuicaoo, July "is. There was an at-
tendance of between seventy-five and
100 listeners to-day when Mr. Ilorr in-
augurated the next to tho last session
of the great silver debate. Mr. Ilorr
opened by quoting a report of
the finance committee of tho
United States senate for the
purpose of showing that gold
has not appreciated since 1878 and
challenged his opponent's sincerity In
basing his arguments in this matter
upon Sauerbeck's tables, which are
compiled by an ICngllshman and based
upou Lnglish values.
In his reply to these charges Mr.
Harvey scored one of the hardest hits
that has yet been placed to his credit.
He produced an article written by Mr.
Ilorr In answer to a correspondent
which had appeared in the weekly and
monthly editions of the Now York
Tribune, in which Mr Ilorr scoffed
at the idea which ho has frequently
advnnccd from the present debate that
human labor formed a trustworthy
standard of value. Mr. Horr's reply
to the correspondence, as quoted by
Mr. Harvey, concluded with the words:
"Your system seems so absurd that I
can hardly treat it soberly."
In reply to the charge that he had
unfairly based his argument upon a
foreign table, Mr. Harvey produced
a comparative statement showing
that his argument would have
been even more forcibly em-
phasized by tho Aldrieh report to
tho senate and further stated that
Sauerbeck s figures were based upon
his belief and the generally accepted
opinion that they were more authority
