Judge Lowe Bequest* Jury to Betorn
Verdict of Not Guilty.
Freed on the charge of the murder
of Lillian Raye, for which they have
been on trial for more than a week,
Big Anne Bailey and Judge Peters
spent last night In the county jail,
their absolute freedom depending upon
the decision of County Attorney Rear-
don, as to whether he will prosecute
them on the three remaining murder
indictments pending against them.
J udge Lowe sustained a motion of
the defense to return a verdict of not
guilty. The motion was introduced

most half an hour. After delivering

"While we have unearthed new evi-
dence that might have a bearing on
these other cases i am in no wise cer-
tain as to the course which my office
"Myself and my assistants will con-
fer and likely will decide the matter
"The case of Lillian Raye was our
strongest and our best chance for con-
viction but inasmuch as the testimony
showing that the other throe persons
came to their death by strychnine is
substantiated by the experts this may
tend to give weight to our final deci-
Normals Get Good Appropriations.
Most of the time of the senate Mon-
day was spent on appropriation bills
from the house, the largest being the
the one for maintenance for the three
normal schools, carrying as passed
abo'ut $160,000. All provisions for
teaching agriculture were cut out on
suggestion of Senator Franklin, who
stated that they were taken care of in
his separate bill for teaching agri-
culture. The salary of the librarian
at each of the normals was cut from
$900 to $750 and the assistant librari-
ans cut out. The money already ap-
propriated from the lease funds was
deducted from the estimates in the

E. H. Jayne re-Appointed Postmaster
The press reports from Washington,
Saturday,' stated E. H. Jayne bad
been re-appointed postmaster of Ed-
mond. This is Mr. Jayne's third ap-
pointment and should be serve his full
term will give him twelve years in the
Edmond postotfice. His opponent was
the editor of this paper, who had
strong local support, also the support
of the organization, county, district
and state, besides that of men promi-
nent in politics in Oklahoma, in addi-
tion to the support of several members
of the Iowa congressional delegation.
However, Mr. Jayne was backed by a
good record as an official, first-class
in every respect, which counts much
with this administration. The contest
was stubbornly fought, but no hard
feelings were engendered, as is the
usual case in postoffiee fights. Mr.
Jayne's term expired in December and
his appointment was held up until the
present time. The editor of The Sun
feels under obligations to his friends
for their support. To others, he owes
no obligations. The contest between
Mr. Dailey and Mr. Jayne was an
honorable one throughout and was
conducted in a friendly spirit.
Edmond People get Soaked.
The big rain Friday, in Oklahoma
City, caught hundreds of Edmond
people at the fair grounds, where
they had gone to witness the track
meet. The rain commenced about
5:30 and there was a teriflic downpour
for several hours. In going from the
grounds to the train, the people were
compiled to walk several blocks in
a drenching rain and wade in mud to
their knees. But few had umbrellas
and the ladies, with tHeir thin, white
dresses, looked as though they had
just emerged from a rain barrel. It
was 2 o'clock in the morning when
they arrived home, a well-soaked,
rain be-draggled lot of humanity.
