THE TATE TRIAL.
The AcoisaJ F . und no
From Tuesday's Daily.
The trial of Alonza S. fate for the
killing of Chris Weiler on the 2lst
day of October came to a close last
night about 9:30 o'clock after Judge
Donavan had addressed the jury in
behalf of the territory. This morn-
ing at 9 o'clock the jury filed into
cou: t with a verdict of not guilty. |
It is reported that the jury came to!
a verdict soon after reaching their
room, sealed it. up as per instructions
and returned to their homes. As
usual their verdict surprises souie and
suits others; men never act or think
alike yet this jury thought that the
defendant was justified in the killing.
The verdict is hoth just and unjust.
The !^<v allow - men to protect them-
scIv - trom anassanlt wich intent to
kill or (.o bodily injury, when there
escape from it. There are
thousand of men in Garfield county
who would notj have killed Chris
Weiler under those circumstances
yet t h^r© ire many others who woulu
have acted just like I ate did.
It seems to us that Mr, Tate was
strong enough to grab Chris Weiler,
who was a small man like Hub Craw-
ford, and held him off, yes, even tied
him, but he didn't do so and the law
didn't require him to do so when
Weiler was approaching with an
open knife in his hand, threatening
to rip him open. A man takes his
life in his hand when he approaches
another with a deadly weapon
threatening to kill or do great bodily
harm, right there he becomes
outlaw under the statues and if he is
killed by the man who he is threat
eningit is recognized as justifiable
homicide. However, society will al-
ways hold Mr. Tate responsible to a
certain extent for that killing as it
is quite plain that he could have
avoided it. Mr. Chris Weiler, the
unfortunate man, slain on that
bloody afternoon, was one of the best
citizens of Garfield county, being
both industrious and frugal. His
family prosecuted the slayer of the
husband and father with all the
vigor good council could provide
them, yet it was decreed that Tate
should go free.
Mrs. Squire Lyle recently returned
from an extended visit among her
children and other relatives in Ohio,
and of course she enjoyed her visit
very much. During her absence
Judge Lyle erected a nice new cot
tage house tor her on the farm.
She did not know a thing about the
new house until she reached the
farm and was ushered iuto ii.
in its subtlety. It lies hidden for
years in the ambush of the blood,
and when it strikes it voids its
venom alike on strength and
beauty, disfiguring the one and
undermining the other.
is a specific for scrofula in its
worst and most malignant forms.
Scrofula is a blood disease. Ayer's
Sarsaparilla is a blood purifying
medicine. Mineral medicines only
drive scrofula below the surface.
Dr. J. C. Ayer's Sarsaparilla is a
vegetable remedy and it eradicates
the disease. There is no remedy
for scrofula equal to Ayer's Sarsa-
" I was cured of a iong-standing case of
scrofula by Dr. J. C. Ayer's Sarsaparilla.
The disease first manifested itself when I
was a chili by breaking out in red blotches
all over my body. I was not free from the
trouble until I took several bottles of
Ayer's Sarsaparilla. That effected a per-
manent cure." —Mrs. E. H. Snyder, Lehigh-

The Enid Wave on Its own motion;
on it own responsibility: without
solicitation or coertion, saved the
county of Garfield about nine hun-
dred dollars In the last ten months
and we did not lose any money doing
it. Now, give the wave the credit
;t deserves as a true county reformer;
a paper that has practiced reform
while It preached reform. Don't
ctve the credit in these premises to
Con air h an and Peters, but just where
Percy Glaze as chaiiman of the
D-vnocratlc County Central commit-
t e, has made no mistake in this
campaign. He has had numerous
ii'iarrels to heal and he succeeded
admirably. Gla/.a is the making of a
lirat class politician of integrity.

kicked out of his party, beaten on
every turn of his political career,

re nomination of Peters and Cona-

forced to make bogus sale of his
paper to fool Peters and Conaghan.
but not withstanding all these things
darned if he didn't horse radish the
thing just right, to fool 'em.
Yesterday afternoon all the pris
oners convicted during the present
term of court were brought before
Judge McAtee for sentence. Joseph
Drury was given 99 years which
means a life time as per verdict of
the jury. John Crandall was sen-
tenced to 10 years, Jack Monroe 8
years, and Stewart, convicted of
stealing a cow, I year in jail.
The \\ AVE is quite sure that Cran-
dall's sentence was too severe, a? it
is a grave question whether he
really knew his wife s infidelity to
himself and children: he don't show
even ordinary intelligence.
The district court started in on
the Webb vs. Gibson criminal trial
yesterday morning, but owing to the
sickness of Mrs. Webb an important
witness the case was continued un-
til the next term of court.

The following article was handed
to the Wave for publication by a
democrft. hence, we publish it. We
know nothing positive as to the truth
of the charges therein contained
against Anderson but we do know
that if they are true Anderson
should not be posing as a candidate
for Probate Judge. Pair minded
men only should be elected to judi-
cial positions and the Democratic
party as a mass abhors fraud. The
article charges .Anderson with
bribery as follows.
Mr. Win. Anderson, candidate for
Probate Judge, who has been charg-
ed with buying outright his nomina-
tion, has refused to accept the offer
made bv the Enid Eagle, to-wit:-to
submit to the truth of the charge t >
committee selected from the Dem-
ocratic and populist central com-
mittee. It will be an easy matter
for Mr. Anderson to disprove this
charge if untrue, He need not pro-
duce affidavits from the persons
whose votes he bought but an un-
sworn statement from disinterest-
ed people will be sufficient. The
facts charged against him are as
follows; That prior to the vote in
the convention on Probate Judge
Mr. Anderson went to one of the
officers of the Citizen Bank of Enid
with a delegate and showed a check
for thirty dollars stating to the bank
that if the three delegates named
should vote for Anderson then the
checlc was to be paid.
Second:—That after the conven
tion he Anderson went with these
delegates to Mr. Harlan and told him
to pay it, that it was alright. That
these dele^ales divided the swag
there in the presence of Mr. Harlan
and others. That the check came
into the Citizen Bank; that im-
mediately afterwards Anderson went
to the Bank and took up this bribery-
check and gave the bank another mi
Now Mr. Anderson a written state-
ment from the officers of the bank
that you did not do these things and
a written statement from Bert Bal-
dockand Mr. Harlan, who was pres-
ent when you authorized Mr. Harlan
to pay the check, will be sufficient
to satisfy your Democratic and pop-
ulist friends. The failure to obtain
these statements will be taken as a
confession of your gnil t.
Don't undertake to ignore this
and palm off any affidavits of these
men you bought.
It is also so stated that you wrote
Mr. Prank Fegar to carry three
townships for you at a cost of $200.
