MR. HOLDEN ON AN
At an early hour yesterday morning
two private cars entered Memphis by
different routes, each of tliem high in the
official family of the Rock Island-Frisco
One came from Chicago, 111., over the
line of the Illinois Central. It was the

Ardmore, I. T., Oct. 20.—District At-
torney W. B. Johnson received a mes-
sage today from the attorney general at
Washington, D. C., stating that the trial
of the appeal case of Rufus Binion, the
negro sentenced to hang by the district

resulted in the affirmation of the decis-
The other car was the official convey-
ance of F. O. Melcher, General Superin-
tendent of the Choctaw District, with
headquarters in Little Rock, Ark. It
came from that city over the Frisco lines
and contained, besides Mr. Melcher, H.
W. Morrison, General Freight Agent of
the Choctaw Division with headquarters
at Little Rock, and W. M. Whitenton,
Superintendent of the Arkansas Division
with headquarters in Little Rock. They
had come to Memphis to meet Mr.
Holden and escort him over the line of
Mr. Holden has not been on the Choc-
taw for some time, but he will now make
a careful trip over the entire system, and
will probably arrive in Shawnee this
evening or tomorrow. On account of
the importance of this city as a traffic
center, and the fact that competing lines
have entered the field since he was last
here, it is believed that he will give this
city more of a visit than he probably in-
tended when he first started on his trip.
He is a "Choctaw" man, believes in the
line as a great road and is working under
President Winchell and Vice President
Stevens in the effort to build it up to the
point where it really belongs.

Quite a number of the friends of the

church, in his usual pleasing manner,
pronounced the words which made them
man and wife.
The bride is a popular young lady and
has resided here with her parents for
some time. The groom is a fine young
man and has been farming the last year.
They will probably make Shawnee their
future home. The parents of the groom

USING UNDER RIMMER
The Pennsylvania Oil and Gas com-

flying, with drums beating, and escorted
by the governor and his military staff,
over one thousand members of the Anti-
Horse Thief association of the two terri-
tories paraded at 1:3o this afternoon,
through the principal business streets of

association of the territory, and a bat-
talion of young women, on horseback,
representing all the states and territories
in the Union, and escorted by Uncle
Sam himself, carrying a sixteen-foot
flag—the red, white and blue.
There were cheers for these capturers
of the festive horse thief, as they parad-
ed past the city hall and governor's
office. In the parade there were repre-
sented between seventy and eighty terri-
torial Anti-Horse Thief lodges and in
addition seventeen lodges within Logan

River Water Is the Worst In Its
Morton Estes, who for years has had
charge of the city waterworks plant,
brought a bottle of water to Tub News
office today and allowed it to stand and
settle. In a liottle six inches high, over an
inch of mud soon dropped to the bottom
and the rest of the water was of muddy
color. Mr. Estes says that in eleven
years experience in pumping from the
river, he never before saw the water in
such shape. The water is absolutely
filled with a gypsum mud, supposed to
come from the mountains in New Mex-
ico, and the filter at the water plant
won't touch it. It will not coagulate,
