Some Doubt Exists as to the
Death of J. 0. Evans,
Cow Thief.
Took Suddenly III and Was Supposed to
Have Died Over Night—When tho
Case Was Called it Was Dismissed—
Now Thought Evans Escaped to Now
Mexico and Instead of His Body ths
Coffin Had Bosn Filled With Stones.
Konawa. Okla , Nov. 10.—Did J. C.
Evans, alleged cow thief, familiarly
known a* "Old Joe" Evans, really die
some two months ag*>, a* the result
of some mysteriously sudden illness,
or did he adopt an unusual method of
effecting his escape? These ar** ques-
| tion* which are bing asked in this
city, and section. Certam it is that
Evans i* gone whether to the "Land of
the Beyond" or outside the Jurisdiction
of the local courts, is the question to
he determined. Certain also, it is that
he lias apparently escaped trial on the
charge of cow stealing.
An unusual story is told of the affair
Evans, formerly a cowboy, and plains-
man in the early days, developed into
a "cow thief" mo the court records say.
I At any rate he was up in court a
number of times, on this charge, but
of enthusiasm in his own convention,
and nominated the third time.
And now that he is for the third
time defated. what of the future?
Let n*> one think of him as a hax-
beeiij He is still the best-loved man
in America. He 1* a power; scarcely
less a power in defeat than in victory.
Let us be glad that this power is
guided by a heart that seeks only the
welfare of his fellow men, and by a
mind true to the conscience which is
its monitor.
Wise or not, Bryan is good. The
w'orld knows this, and warms to him.
And being good, we know that when*
ever Judge Taft shall seek to lead
the country Into a movement against
graft as Roosevelt has done, and as
Taft's character and promises leads
us all conldently to hope he will do,
we shall see Bryan, superior to petty
partisanship with Taft’s administra-
tion a* with Roosevelt’s holding up
Taft’s hand and giving him god-speed.
No, William Jennings Bryan is not
among the has-beens. He is still the
peerless leader of his own mighty host.
He has been the father of many a
measure for which Rooseveltlsm has
had credit; and Taft’s administration
if it carries on the reforms for which
the people look, must also be indebt-
ed to the impress of Bryan's argu-
ments on public opinion. Both the
party power and the party defeated
will continue to feel the stimulus of
hi* fecund mind. He will be a power
while he lives—and may he live long.
When the Democrats meet four
year* hence, Bryan will be the great
figure among them. He has remade
the party, and made it a thing needed
—an effective opp*jsition. This is a
great work for any man.
When he returned from Europe,
Henry Watters*»n, realizing Bryan's
hold on the party, said. "God give
him wisdom!" Indeed, It seems plain
that ho grows yearly in it. But may
he grow more. God has given him
goodness in a measure seldom seen
In public life, so full of temptation.
He has won great power over men.

Washington. Nov. 10.—Major General
Klllott, commander of the United
States marine corps, in hi* annual re-
port to Secretary of the Navy, asks
for 500 additional enlisted men and
necessary officer*. The present strength
of the corps is ^6S officers and M2«

cent are serving in Cuba, the Phil-
ippines, Panama and elsewhere out-

He ask* an appropriation or $2.16.-
500 to purchase from the army lo.ouu
rifles of the latest model and I mil-
lion l>ounds of ammunition. He says
that the law authorizing the employ-
ment of enlisted men of the navy as
naval mall clerk* with additional pay
Is a discrimination^ against enWsted
men of the marine corps who have per-
formed this duty.
He recommends that the corps be
(given Its own transports to be manned
and commanded by enlisted men and
officers of the navy.
••The enlisted men of the marine
corps." say. General Elliott "have en-
dured more hardships In the last two
years on naval vessels used a* trans-
ports than they would In an ordinary
campaign on shore of the same dura-
tion." General Elliott asks that the
marine band tie declared a distinctive
organization and not a navy band and
subject to the restriction* and pro-
hibition. of navy bands
