low his children in school. Judge

should lie allowed to atten.l white
schools unless the trustees would
build gnod separate school build-

Guthrie, Dec. II.—Henry W
Shoemaker, who, with two com-
panions, murdered Edward Town-
send In his store at Todd, ]il im
county, twenty miles west of lien-
nessy, has been found guilty of
murder in the first degree and sen-
tenced to Imprisonment for life.
He was taken to the Lansing pen-
itentiary yesterday. Shoemaker
was the leader of a gang of out-
laws and horse thieves who terror
izen the people of this portion of
Oklahoma for almost a year. Sev-
eral daring robberies nnd hold-ups
were perpetrated by tills gang last
summer, but although hounded by
the officers, tloy always eluded
capture. One evening about (i
o'clock, several weeks ago, Shoe
maker and three companions rode
to Townsend's store in the village
ofTodd and attempted to rob him.
Townsend resisted, and he was lit-
erally shot to pieces by the gang.
Townsend was a thirty-second
degree Mason and the best known
man in the territory. Governor
Renfrow offered a reward of |600
and the masons of Oklahoma |l,500.
Tom Taylor and Jack Hubbard,
two old frontiersmen, started on
the trail of the gang, and after a
chise on horseback beting over
two months, and extending from
Colorado into tho Panhandle of
Texas and No-Mnn's-liund, they
trailed Shoemaker into llonnessy.
lie pulled Ids revolver, hut found
himself covered with guns, and
gave up.
Condition of Winter Wheat.
Chicago, Ilt,., Dec. 12.—The
Fanners' ltoview says: Winter
wheat is doing well in most of the
states. Where It has had sufficient
moisture it has pushed rapidly for-
wnrd and the warm weather has
caused a starting out that will
serve to protect it from the coining
cold. Generally speaking Illinois,
Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Kentuc-
ky, Missouri ami Wisconsin report
the crop as doing well. There are
counties, however, In all of these
states where drouth has prevailed
all the full, and as a consequence
conditions for the crop arc low.
Kunans and Nebraska present
varied conditions, the more favor
able counties showing a fine
growth of the cereal. From many
sections in Ihe two states come the
complaints that have been so com-
mon in the past years—ground too
dry to permit the seed to sprout
and no hope now except in the
spring rains. In Iowa little seed-
ing lias been done. As is common
ly the case, little winter wheat has
been sown in Minnesota and Dako-
ta, but what has been put in seems
to be doing well.
A Pi.piiiim Uuki,
Tecum,eh Lender.
Wednesday afternoon one J. R
Jacobs, of Lincoln county, late
Democratic candidate for repre-
sentative, second district, arrived
in town from Oklahoma City, so he
said, and offered to bet I'iIHI that
J. W. Martin would not ho install-
ed as treasurer of Pottawatomie
county and stated that lie would be
Indicted by the federal grand jury
at Oklahoma City, for stealing
lorses live years ago. Within a
short time after Ills arrival the re-
port had been circulated all over
the city. The report did not cre-
ate the consternation among the
leading Populists here that ur
expected. Said Pops liavo "liolu

througli pulling it some heanlly
cuss of a high card player may be
extremely anxious to emigrate.

We nre the people I

That ihe pand is iu our craws yet.
True our leaders held us up by the tails,
While the (1. O. Pier* gave it to us

The leaders were getting it in the

And did it hurt us.
Not a little bit.
We are inclined at this date to believe
That the party got licked ;
We have even hearl it intimated that it

We did it ourselves.
We o Mlldn't lick the Republicans
And Democrats together,
So we made a couibiuo and licked tho Demo-

That's the kin-1 of a homogeneity we are

And we fell like it.
