A TERRIBLE TRAGEDY IN WHICH

TWO HOMES IN MOURNING.
And a Dark Shadow Cast Over the
The worsttragedy ever recorded in
the annals of the Cherokee Strip was
enacted in this city yesterdayi even-
ing and two men killed each other
After reading yesterday evening's
WAVE the entire town was expecting
trouble, but no one expected it to
end as it did, with the blood of two
men staining the streets.
The issue of yesterday contained
an article in defense of our esteemed
citizen, Captain J. J. S. Hassler,
and while not mentioning names, Mr.
Patterson saw lit to resent it, and,
telling several parties that there
would be trouble, started out in
search of Isenberg, the editor of the
Wave. Friends of both parties, try-
ing to avoid trouble, told Isenberg
of Patterson's threats and advised
him to avoid meeting Patterson if
possible, and, upon suggestion, had
started home, stopping on his way to
talk with parties in front of the Dia-
While sitting on the edge of the
walk in conversation with McGraw,
a clerk in the drug store, and others,
Mr. Patterson started from the
Cherokee Pharmacy corner across in
the direction of the land office, and.
seeing Isenberg, turned back and
walked within a few feet of Isenberg
when he said, "I want to see you a
moment." To which Mr. Isenberg
replied: "All right judge, what is
it?" and rising to his feet walked a
few steps with Patterson when he,
will fix you," striking Isenberg in the
face, commencing the trouble that
friends were trying to keep down
and the end of which is only too well
Marshal Williams, appearing on
the scene, tried to separate the two
men, when Patterson milled his re-
volver and fired at Isenberg, but the
bullet Hew wide of its mark, and Isen-
berg started to run,

When the first shot was heard,
friends of Isenberg and Patterson
rushed to the scene, to find that what
they had tried to prevent had hap-
pened, and immediately thousands
of people crowded the streets, and a
gloom .darker than Stygian darkness j
overspread the entire city. Lips

The verdict of the coronor's jury as
near as can be learned Is in substance
this: "R. W. Patterson came to his
death at the hands of E. C. Williams
while resisting arrest. E. C. Will-
iams came to his death at the hands
of It. W. Patterson while performing
his official duty."
E. C. Williams was born thirty-five
years ago In San Erancisco, Califor-
nia; when but a child his parents
moved to Boston, Mass., where he
remained and was educated, gradu- J
ating with honor from the best school
of the state. Drifting west several |
years ago, he located in Denver,
Colorado where he was married three
years ago. He was reporter for sev-
eral years for some of the leading
papers of the state. At the open-
ing of the Cherokee strip, he with
the rest, made the great rush into
this country in hopes of gaining a
home to spend his life. Mr. Williams
was a good officer, faithful in all his
acts and was respected and hon-
ored by all who knew him. He leaves
a wife and baby to mourn his loss.
