Ho! the Frisco Line!
While there has been some
talk of the Choctaw road build-
ing north and that the people of
Stillwater should make a move
toward securing the same, wo
believe that the Choctaw would
be acceptable as an enterprise
but as far as providing for a
Kansas City and St. Louis out-
let it does not come up to the re-
quirements. The Santa Fe is
not inclined to build on from
Pawnee, thus tieing up one of
the richest parts of Oklahoma.
Our best and only solution to
the matter lie with the Frisco
Line. As was rumored some
time ago, the Frisco contem-
plated building a branch from
Sapulpa westward, connecting
with one of its branches in Wes-
tern Oklahoma. This would
give Payne county an excellent
east and west road. Our citizens
should agitate this east and wrest
road and bring Stillwater in
closer and better connection
with the eastern markets.
With the Frisco Line running
throngh Payne county our fu-
ture is assured.

but now since the grass has be-
gun to grow and the trees are
beginning to cast a little shade
the town cow comes along
walks over the trees, eats the
grass and causes trouble general-
ly. The perplexing question now
with the council, what is to be
done. In the discussion Dr.
Dennison becomes furious and
says let the cows eai the trees.
Now we hope this is not the
sentiment with the majority of
Alva Simmons Case.
The case of the Territory vs
Alva Simmons came on to be
heard Wednesday. This was a
case where the defendant was
charged with having indicted
with two other charges with
the crimes of robery and rioting.
Owing to the peculiar story told
by Emma Cox, the prosecuting
witness, this case was one of the
most important cases tried this
term of court, and excited a
great deal of interest. The trial
of Wednesday was the second
trial of this case and resulted in
This case has caused no little
excitement from the fact the
court, after the verdict was giv-
en in .'oy the jury, believed it
to be packed and after jury
had been discharged called
it together and proceeded
with the matter of investigation
which was no more than his duty
to do. The United States Mar-
shal and the Territoral At-
torney were telegraphed for to
make investigation. The court
apparently believed his life was
in danger and appointed a special
guard, R. N. Anderson T. J.
Hoyt and Ira Reynolds to see
the court was not assassinated.
