Rumors were rife Friday that
Preacher (?) Reese, who was given a
severe thrashing on June 11, by citi-
zens of Hugo and Soper, because he
had broken up the home of a citizen
of this county, and because of his dis-
loyal remarks, had employed counsel
to bring suit against all persons who
took part in punishing him and
against the newspapers of the county
that had dared publish the news item,
baaing his suit for damages on the
ground that the treatment and. publi-
cation was injurious to his sacred (?)
calling and business.
That there are some grounds for
the rumor of the pending suit is bas-
ed on the fact that Reese and his
friends have solicited several attor-
neys of the county to take the case, all
of whom were offered good retainers.
In this he was unsuccessful, one at-
torney saying that “No respectable
attorney would take a case of this
Reese has been in Hugo this week,
probably on the above mission. Wed-
nesday R. M. Price and Reese were
standing in front of the former’s of-
fice when the writer was passing. Mr.
Price hailed the writer and introduc-
ed the man, but at the moment, the
name was not connected with the
whipping incident, nor was it until
ReCse mentioned the fact and asked
that we furnish him with a copy of
the paper containing the publicity of
his deserved whipping.
Reese was permitted to make a copy
of that article.
This incident, together with his ac-
tions in McCurtain county, in a great
measure, bears out the rumors.
The suit, it is said, will be brought
in the Federal court, Reese claiming
residence in Texas. It is «lm mH
that an Oklahoma City attorney waa

ter for Reese, and that papers weald

the trial, should the case ever come to
