Sheriff Learns of Conspiracy to Kill
Off Deputies—Backed by Whole-
Muskogee, Oklahoma.—Sheriff John
L. Wisner of Muskogee county has
just obtained definite information that
a conspiracy exists on the part of
negro bootleggers who are operating
on the Iron Mountain railroad be-
tween Fort Smith, Ark., and Musko-
gee. to kill every field deputy on the
j sheriff's force. The deputy sheriffs
have been armed with riot guns and
j instructed to take no chances.
This action follows half a dozen en-
! counters between negro bootleggers
coming in from Fort Smith with
whisky and officers, the latter having
been fired upon repeatedly when they
attempted to make arrests. Several
bootleggers have been killed.
The sheriff is satisfied the negro
bootleggers are acting under instruc-
tions from one wholesale dealer who
has not only armed the negroes, but
instructed them to kill the field depu-
ties in order, if possible, to stop the
vigorous efforts being made to catch
and prosecute the illicit liquor im-
The sheriff received word from
Fort Smith that 12 negro bootleggers
were leaving there on an Iron Moun-
tain train for Muskogee. He placed
guards at the Arkansas river bridges,
expecting to catch the men as they j
i crossed. Hut they got off at Haute
and crossed the river in skiffs that
were waiting for them. All of them
ha ti whisky.
Judge R. E. Campbell of the federel i
court has just held that federal pro-
hibition enforcement officers have the
right to enter a man's house or place
of business without a warrant and
search for liquor.
