(Special)—Fort Smith Is all wrouKht up
over the bulldinR of the Fort Smith,
Guthrie & Western Railroad, which hw
been nurveyed from Fort Smith to
Guthrie, O. T.
A Joint meeting of the Commercial
league anil Traffic Bureau with the
promoters of the road was held Satur-
day and a definite proposition was sub-
mitted by the company whose respon-
elbillty has been fully established.

number of other Influential capitalists
of Oklahoma and New York.
The survey covers the richest coal
fields In the Indian territory and all
the preliminary work has been accom-
plished. The profile of the route has
been accepted by the secretary of the
interior and the necessary legislation
was passed by the last congress grant-
ing a right of way and all neo«e«ary
grounds for depot faciities and town-
site purposes, through the Indian coun
try, even to allowing a site for a depot
every ten miles.
This is one of the greatest pieces of
news that Guthrie has received in a
long time, and the local enthusiasts
who are connected with the company
are consequently very much elated
It means much for the city of Guth-

richest coal and mineral fields of the

talk about how much it cost to run a
man fac toring plant.
The money necessary for the com

and Mr. Hayden has given assurances
,'that it will soon be under construction
Thus one by one the great ralroads
of the country are finding a way into

A college girl, slipping down to New
York last month for a Sunday at home,
found presently her seat in the train I
shared by a young man. His appear- j

whom aseura&ce is developed at the
expense of breeding—and in a few mo- '
ments his conduct tallied with his
Finding that staring and smiling

to his companion, which was declined i
by a nod ot the Uca-d; then a nvaga- 1

of this interesting statement, but he

At this time Deputy Warden •
Thompson said: "What if should

say: 'Taylor Cook, here is your death

him squarely in the face, the old con-

1 said nothing would induce him to sign
my death warrant, aud under no cir-

: Gov. Leedy did not pay any attention
to my letter.
"This is a very sad life. Nothing
' breaks the monotony. It was a great
blessing to me when I was changed a
few weeks ago and placed in the new
twine plant, a busy place, w-here one
can hear the machinery run.'
From this Cook's mind turned to bin
wife and crime. "I was raised to be-
lieve in God and a divine ruler," ho
i said. "There is no justice, and 1 am
rather doubtful about these things

asylum, and she had me sent home.
Some friends warned me. She told me

would not have listened to the wholo
state of Kansas to the contrary. She
got me to put my property in her
name, as she wanted it; then she turn-
ed on me and told me to go; that I
was a fraud. I was driven mnd. and
wanted to kill her and myself also. I
planned to kill her. and weut into a
hardware store and looked at guns
and knives, but turned away from

Hero Cook broke down and shed
tears about his wife. He said In a

The convict, dead to tho world, who

during that timo he has occupied one
cell, except wheu out at work, on the
lower tier, or main floor, of the north
cell house. This cell has photographs
of his dead wife, children and grand-
children around the sides, and presents
a more attractive appearance than any
of the others.
Cook was sent in under a sentence
of death from Osborn county in 18M9
for the murder of his wife, whom ho
killed with an ax. Tho murder was a
horrible one, aud Cook is supposed to
