SULLIVAN BOUND OVER.
The Preliminary trial of Sullivan Re-
sults in his Incarceration for Arson.
The strong circumstantial evidence
surrounding Sullivan points to him as
the man who applied the coal oil and
torch to the home of Mrs. Lewis a
week ago and his honor, Judge Weeks
bound him over to the tender mercies
of the grand jury in the sum of $600,
in default of which he was placed in
the county bastile.
Three witnesses swore that the lire
caught on the outside of the kitchen:
that coal oil had been poured on the
boards comprising the structure and
that the first person they saw at the
fire was Sullivan, who stood with his
hands in his pockets watching the
progress of the devastating fiames,
without attempting to put the fire
out as any honest man would have
done. It was proven that he had
made threats against Mrs. Lewis
saying he would "do her up" before
many days. It was proven also that
Sullivan purchased a quart of coal
oil the evening before the fire. An
examination of his domicile develop-
ed the fact that he had filled his lamp
with it, taking about a pint, but the
other pint could not be found: the
bottle, or can, was empty.
Thedefendent was put upon the
witness stand and his evidence did
his cause more injury than good. Ac-
cording to his story he had consider-
able use for coal oil on that particu-
lar evening. He said he had some
green wood that would not burn and
he "assassinated" the wood with oil;
then he cleaned up his old rusty re-
volver with it and then bathed his
feet in it to cure his corns. After
all this oily performance he thought
there was a tea cup full left, but,
alas the can was empty.
There seems to be little doubt, in
the minds of those who heard the
evidence, concerning the guilt of
Sullivan. No one saw him apply the
oil or the match that caused the de-
struction, but the circumstantial evi-
dence is strong enough to eradicate
all doubts in the minds of a disinter-
ested jury. The public press and
public sentiment should be strong
against arson. A fiend who will de-
liberately apply the torch to a build-
ing deserves the harshest punish-
ment known to law.

It May Do Much For You.
Mr. Fred Miller, of Irving, Illinois,
writes that he had a severe kidney
trouble for many years, with severe
pains in his back and also that his
bladder was affected. He tried many
so-called kidney cures but without
any good result. About a year ago
he began the use of Electric bitters
and found relief at once. Electric
Bittess is especially adapted to cure
of all kidney and liver troubles and
often gives almost instant relief.

THE POOL COTENST.
Banks won over Weber with
a Majority of Four.
One of the features of the various
. ity entertainments of last night was
1 match game of pool between Geo.
Banks, of Perry, and Chub Weber, of
Enid, in the bi'.llard hall on E street.
Both contestants are experts In the
art of pocketing balls from a pool ta-
ble and were very evenly matched,
which made the game quite exciting
from start to finish, the game whol-
ly depending upon a lucky advantage
on the location of the balls at all
Naturally, the good wishes, sympa-
thies and some of the "dough" of the
spectators were with Weber, the
home man, which, while well meant
on the part of his friends, was
against him, causing him to get a
little unnerved and excited during
the latter part of the game, when he
made a few reckless misplays, be-
sides, giving his adversary consider-
ably the advantage. Banks was per-
fectly cool throughout the game and
showed considerable cunning, calcu-
lating in leaving the balls in a posi-
tion that his opponent could not do
anything. Weber is undoubtedly the
better player of the two on difficult
combinations or bank shots, and, we
really think, the better player, and
probably would have won last night
could his fr'ends have been kept
quiet. At any rate, it was a dead
game match and very interesting to
the large crowd in attendance. The
Bcore at the finish stood 200 to 190.
Immediately after the game, Webel
challenged Banks to play in some
other place, to be selected.
ANOTHER BRICK BUILDING.
Lot 14, block 9, just north of the
Hockaday block, now occupied by
The Fair, was sold yesterday to
Logan and Kennedy, the popular dry

handsome, two story brick on the
ground as soon as it can be put up.
The shack on the ground was not
included in the sale. The lot was
formerly owned by Grant Humphrey.
