ALF HUNTER CAPTURED AFTEtf
A DESPERATE FIGHT.
KIUEI SH1RIFF OF OKLAHOMI COUNTY
Held In Pine Bluff, Ark., and Author!
tiea Will Demand Big Reward—
Oklahoma Officer# Go With
A GREAT ANNOYANCE.
Pine Bluff, Ark.—Alf Hunter, ne-
gro, who wax arrested in this city
Monday night after a desperate light
with the officers, has confessed to
the murder of Sheriff G. W. Garrison
Of Oklahoma City and told the details
of his dv adly work !n Oklahoma, and
declared also that he murdered a
white man In Fourche bottoms, near
Little Rock, after making his escape
from Oklahoma. He said he expected
death when taken back to th«? scene
of his crime, but that Jesus was with
him and he would not worry. He Is
not believed to be guilty of the Four-
The officers belive Hunter is try-
ing to shield his brother, who is in
jail at Little Rock, charged with the
crime. Sheriff Garrison of Oklahoma
City wired Sheriff Philpot Tuesday
that he was on his way to Pine Bluff
with requisition papers. The officers
here will probably refuse to surrender
Hunter unless the reward of $3,800
is guaranteed them.
Hunter is regarded as one of the
most desperate negroes ever in the
county Jail here and is beirg closely
guarded. He will recover from
wounds inflicted by hiB captors The
capture of Hunter was accomplished
through the determined work of Con-
stable Angus F. McNeill of R-dfleld,
this county. McNeill has been trail-
ing the negro for months, but each
time he would locate him he would
make hia "get-away" before the of-
ficer arrived. Monday McNeill learn-
ed, through a lodge brother of Hun-
ter**. that Hunter was in Pine Bluff.
The lodge member had previously
"tipped" the constable off, a« Hftnter
had confldede In him and h«ad re-
lated the story of his lawlessness in
Oklahoma. When McNeill learned of
Hunter's presence here he was at
Red field. , He telephoned Deputy
Sheriff W. L. Goodwin to shadow him
until he could reach Pine Bluff. Good-
win shadowed a negro answering
Hunter's description and was within a
storre's throw of him constantly for
eight hours. Wh«?n McNeill arrived,
Hunter had disappeared, being tipped
off that the officers were after him.
The officers took the informant into
custody and threatened to Jail him
unK'Ss he revealed Hunter s where-
abouts. He did so and when the of
fleers saw him leave a saloon on East
Third avenue, they grabbed him
Hunter pulled a gun and showed fight
Two patrolmen nearby came to the
assl'-tancv of the constable and Depu-
ty Goodwin, who were beating Hunter
with their revolvers. The clu!«s of the
policemen felled the negro and he was
< arrled to the county Jail in an In-
sennhible stat".. After recover ng con-
sciousncss he showed fight in the of-
fice of the Jail and Jailer Holland had
to knock him down repeatedly to

It is a common occurrence nowa-
days to hear a man remark with dis-
gust: "It Is Impossible to have good
painting done these days; either the
paint is not good or there are no good
palntera." This, however, is not true.
There la good paint, and there are
good paintera. But the question is,
bringing them together.
One cannot expect a satisfactory
painting Job without pure white lead.
There la a way to make sure you are
getting pure white lead without test-

tional Lead Company's famous Dutch

positive guarantee of purity. However,
anyone can test white lead. National

spicuous exception. It was admitted
