OKLAHOMA CITY O. T, Feb.
14.—The leader of the gang lh.it niur
dercd Sheriff Smith and Deputy Beck
is in the federal jail in Guthrie. At
least that is what Sheriff Thompson of
Caddo county believes and hi* belief
i^ shared by all who are familiar with
the case. The name ot the man be-
lieved to be the leader of those mur-
derous highwaymen is not known. 1 he
man will not talk, ami nobody here
knows anything of his history except
as an outlaw of the most desperate
character, if the man now held proves
to be the one the officers think he is.
He and :• pal ,-tole two horses near
Cottonwood, fifteen milc^ cast of Ana-
darko. They were trailed north up the
canyons oi Caddo county and were
caught off their guard by the officers.
They soon came to the conclusion that
they had landed ;i more important pris-
oner than a common horse thief. 1 Ivy
were taken to Anadarko and carefully
guarded, not a word ot the olTutrs"
suspicions having been given out. The
m-xt day the prisoners were quietly
out of the country and brought here.
The man now in jail here who is be-
lieved to be the leader of the murder-
ers, is sandy complcxioned, is about
fifty years old. and wears a stubby
beard. He fits the description exact-
ly of the man who held up the people
the night before the murder, lie is tlir

house and putting a foot on erch of

body. Afterwards going through the
pockets and taking all the valuable
The two young men arrested several
days ago have confessed their part in
teh bloody affair, but refuse to give the
names or to describe the two accom-
plices. They say that when the officers
rode up they started to mount their
horses and endeavor to esc pe but the
leader drew his revolver and threaten-
ed them with instant death if they did
not face '.he music. One oi the young
fellows confessed that he find a shot
or two, but the other insists that he
did not fire a shot.
The boys say that the four kept to-
gether the first day, but at night sepa-
rated. being then considerably ea t oi
the Kerchi hills in a wood countrj*.
The two boys continued east toward
Ada where they were captured, anu
the other two sought hiding with
friends in the rought country north.
The officers have ben endeavoring
to keep the capture quiet, fearing mob
violence if the man's identity should
be well established.

The F.nid and Anadarko railway has
the greater part of the grading com-

They put in very little timber for trest-

vitrified tiling of j6 and 40 inches in di-

grades at a point to miles northwest
and cross the C. O & G. about two
and three fourths miles southwest of
here at that point they go over the
Choctaw and give them 22 leet ot clear-

Valley in the Creek
Spe< i M Dispatch to the State Capital.
SHETUMKA, 1 i". Feb 14 -Mon-
day stamped about the mo t excitable
event a course of progress for the late
history of the Creek nation. This was
the sale of lots in tiie new town Shc-
leetka. which is situated at the inter-
section of the St. L. & S. F. and the
Ft. S. & \Y. railways, about half way
between Holdenville and Okmulgee.
1 he town-ite company was kept quite
busy throughout the whole day and al-
so each successive day giving bills ot
ale for lots That thi; 1- d<stined to
be the coming metropo'is <>f the Creek
nation cannot truthfully be gainsaid.
The clear crystal waters of the ever
flov ing Norm Canadian river comes
with mi two miles of the town on the
we ' and then winds its way in horse
shape for thirty-five miles, and
yet ever going beyond the limits of
a 11 mile radius, thus giving about
fifty miles of the most fertile valley
of all the territory for the support of
the town. Ano'her very important fea-
ture is that this ic the only point for a
di t Mice of fifty miles at which the new
road can secure an abundance of water,
again this point lacks only four miles
e>i being exactly halfway between Guth-
rie and Ft Smith, consequently it ii
almost beyond doubtable that this will
he the place for the s1km < am! the d:-
vision of the Ft. S. & \\ !.<■• which
were bought Monday for $1* 1 • now
