Ll THKR. OKLAHOMA. FRIDAY, SKPT. 10,
He Gets Away.
Elmer Hitohue, well known
here i3 again up against the law
for horee stealing. It has onlyj
been a couple of months since he
finished a term In the penitentiary
for this offence.
Several horses have been stolen
In the vicinity of Holdenville re-
cently. Farmers organized to
catch the thieves when tfforts of
county authorities proved fruit-
less. Regular possees were for-
med, headed by a leader. Mem-
bars were fu• ly armed and pur-
suit of suspects was begun.
Following a recent theft when
several horses were taken, a posse
began a pursuit of Hitchue, who
was suspected. Hitchue was
fleeing on a horse, and posse
members were similarly mounted
The chase led toward Oklahoma
City. The fleeing man was rid-
ing hard and members of the pos-
se were unable to overtake him
until Friday night, when he was
sighted near Witcher.
Darknoss was approaching
when Hitchue was eeen, and be-
fore he could be overtaken and
captured, he made his way into a
field, hiding himself in a thicket.
Members of the pursuing party
surrounded the field intending to
camp until morning and then
close in on their victim beating
the field until Hitchue was found.
However, Hitchue had other
plans. At about 4 o'clock Sat-
ufd ay morning, just as darkness
was beginning to merge into light
Hitchue crawled from his hiding
place, and through the line of
pickets. He was observed by
Bob .Tones, leader of the posse,
as he crawled along, but Jones
believed the escaping man to be 5
one of th * pos o, using the steal- ^
thy method vi getting about in
