THROWN FROM A PONY.
Last night about dark Harrold
Mott was thrown from a pony on
North 12th street directly opposite
the lsenburg home. He landed on
the ground head first and lost his rea-
son. He did not know where he was.
He enquired around the neighbor-
hood where L. D. Baker lived. His
mother beina a cousin of Mr. Baker,
and lives at 1605 Broadway.
Jasper Turnbull one of the Wave
carrier boys found young Mott wan-
deringaround the streets frothing at
the mouth. The boy knew there was
something wrong with the boy and
led him home. It was thought last
night that the boy could not live, but
he was better this morning. Young
Mott is about 14 years old.
The Wave is in receipt of a com-
munication announcing the death of
Miss Anella Brown, October 5, 11)02,
at North Yakima, Washington, of
The pioneer citizens of Enid will no
doubt remember Miss Brown as one
of Enid's first school teachers. She
and Miss WagstatT taught a Normal
school in the old Baptist church on
East Broadway in the early days.
Miss Brown was very popular here
and no doubt has many friends still*
residing in the city who will be griev-
ed to hear of her death. Her body
was laid to rest at Plainville, Ivans.
Now enmes Clint Clark, under
sheriff, under oath saying: "In re-
cent Issues of alleged newspapers
published in this city, it was charged
that Sheriff Chas. V. Porter, sheriff
oi Garfield county, was owing me
$1,500 for my services as under sheriff, !
All such statements are absolutely
untrue. The contract between the
sheriff and myself is based on a per-
centage of the work performed, by
myself, to be paid when the fees,
covering my work, were collected
During the first six months of my
service as under sheriff, there were
no fees collected, yet Mr. Porter very
kindly paid me the full amount due
in advance, as my request as I needed
the money. And, since that time,
Mr. I orter has paid me my percent
age, on demand, regardle s of the
fact that said fees had not been col-
At the present time I must say
that he has paid me in full for many
fees not yet collected by the sheriff.
Hence, there is nothing due me a
under sheriff that Mr. Porter refuses
to pay, in fact he has paid me in ad-
vance of the strict terms of the con-
tract between us. Mr. P. W. Shafer
settled with the sheriff on the 11th
day of August and he received every
cent due him up to the time he left
tie employ of the sheriff.
G-. F. Clark, Under Sheriff.
Now comes John P.Cannon, who
having been sworn says:
Enid, Okla., October 26,1902.
'1 o th is Voters op Garfield County
It has been generally circulated
that Sheriff Porter does not pay his
deputies. Now.this report is wholly
untrue. I have worked for Mr. Por
ter for the past th'ee years and I will
say truthfully thathe has always paid
me every dollar he owed me and on
several occasions he has advanced me
sums of money in advance of my sal-
ary. Now this report has been circu-
lated by enemies of Sheriff Porter to
defeat him frr re-election. It is true
that Mr. Porter and I had a misun-
derstand ng but the blame lies wholly
on me and not Mr. Porter.
Deputy Sheriff and Jnilor.
It seems to the Wave that these
statements, sworn to, should settle
the lies now being circulated that
Sheriff Porter does not pay his help

A Grand Republican Rally.
Col. Geo. Orner and Judge t'leven-
ger were billed to make a republican
speach apeice at the Allen school
house in Garland township last night.
George and Glevenger went out load-
ed with republican doctrine that
would kill and confidently expected a
large crowd. Both orators were
adorned with Prince Albert coats all
swelled up. When Orner openen up
his batteries as the first speaker
there were just eight citizens of Gar-
land township present, five democrats
and three republican and the repub-
licans were all candidates for various
Quite a crowd of county candidates
and a few democrats appeared at the
meeting from town which swelled the
audience to about 20 all told. When
Col Orner was in the midst of a great
sinching point as to why everybody
should vote the republican ticket
Uncle John Dollar, a democrat from
town who was in the audience call
ed"Tonk"on him and the game closed
Finally the crowd called on Uncle
John to make a speach, which was
democratic, of course,and he become
quite angry when the boys yelled
lTonk" on him before he could ex-
plain why he was making a speach in
a republican meeting. Uncle John
got mad and sat down.

The people of Oklahoma have long
since learned that Frank Greer and
his Guthrie Capital have no interest
in common with the common people
''•very utturanceof his paper indicates
that his territorial printing graft is
the paramount issue with him in this
campaign. Greer is cold, excedingly
cold blooded. This editor has shaken
hands with him in August and receiv-
ed a cold chill in the contact. There
is no ambition above the dollar in
lighting the world in the opinion of
Greer and for the dollar only he
works. He would not care if the
people of Oklahoms were taxed ten
per cent of the actual value of their
property as long as about three per
cent of the amount landed Into his
Owing to the sad news of the im-
pending demise of the editor's oldest
brother, the Wave is not up to Its
ii.uaI standard in local news today.
Jim Kershaw approached the editor
of this paper denying the item which
appeared in this paper last evening,
to the elfect that he had promised to
make Hose Tilton his deputy sheriff
in case of election. We did not pub-
lish the item as a serious objection to
Jim's election. However, the report
comes from two citizens of Enid,
who, we u derstand, are willing to
make affidavit that Mr. Kt.shaw told
them that Hose Tilton was to be his
Now, if they will make affidavit to
the fact that Mr. Kershaw informed
them that Bose Tilton would be his
under sheriff, It seems to us said af-
fidavits should settle the question.
The Wave entertains no serious ob-
jection to Bose Tilton being Jim
Kirshaw's under-sheriff for the reason
that Jim will not have the opportun-
ity to appoint an under sheriff. He
will not be elected.
