HOBART WEEKLY CHIEF
of City of Hobart
HOBART. KIOWA COUNTY, OKLAHOMA. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 1, liHXi.
An Authorized State'
ment About the
To Build a Bridge.
Clinton, Okla., Jan. 29—Today
the two largest grading outfits of
the Kansas City, Mexico and
Orient railway, the O'Donnell
Construction company and Frank
L. Adams oompany, arrived in
Clinton. Kergis, a sub-contract"
or, began work here last Monday.
In reply to a question as to
what their plans were, Mr.
O'Donnell said: "We are now
throwing our main force of work-
men on the grade here at Clinton,
and will push the work until it is
finished, which will be not later
than April. The grade is now
completed as far south as Custer
City or two miles north of that
town, where the Orient conneots
with the Frisco. Temporarily,
the Orient will use the Frisco
tracks from there south as far as
one mile north of Clinton, where
they will branch off, build their
own bridge accross the Washita,
and then grade through the town
and connect with the grade two
miles south of Clinton, which
will complete the Orient grade
as far south as Altus."
The fine steel bridge accross
the South Canadian river north
of Thomas is almost completed.
Twenty-five miles of rails and
ties are«eing unloaded at Clin-
It looks like it was about time
to call another mass meeting,
maEe some more speeches and
appoint some more committees.
By the way, what has become of
the last railroad committee and
its subdivisions? Are we dead
or just asleep?
Make the Comparison.
The township trustees are men
of good judgment and know good
work when they see it. We
want them to compare the assess-
ors blanks printed by the Chief
office and by the Guthrie Leader.
We would not let such work as
the Leader's go out of our office.
We want you to see what a home
printing office can do. The Chief
can do any job work that any
county office requires.
County Superintendent W. P.
Stewart has gone to Chickasha,
Gotebo and Mountain View. He
will meet two old college friends
find have a visit of some days.
To the Fore.
Washita County Officials
A Stolen Hone Recovered
and Lost Again-
This is a story of a stolen horse
its recovery, unwarranted official
interference and a resumed activ
ity of the Hughes gang. 8ome
years ago J. M. Hefley, of Jack
county, Texas, had a very valu-
able horse stolen. Jim Bourland
the very efficient field deputy
sheriff of Caddo county located
the horse some weeks ago at the
Hughes ranch in Washita county
He notified Hefley who came on,
made affidavit to the horse and
identified it. He went with Bour
land and got it taking it to Mt.
View and placed it in Coker's
livery stable to remain 24 hours
in order to give time for service
of papers if there was a olaim of
ownership by the Hughes. On
Friday night last County Attor-
ney W. J. Knott, deputy Woods
and sheriffs officers Brown and
Owens of Washita County, came
to Mt. View with Camp, the fore-
man of the Hughes ranch, and
demanded the return of the horse.
They had do legal papers and
without right or law took the
horse from Coker and turned it
over to Camp who has promptly
ridden it out of the country. The
Washita officers returned home
prepared papers and had Hefley
and Bourland arrested and taken
to Cordell for horse stealing. On
their arrival the prisoners were
discharged. Bourland, Tom
Conner and Jesse Morris then
visited the Hughes ranch and de-
manded the horse. It was not
there but Mrs. Hughes agrees to
return it by Friday of this week
when a trial will be had as to its
ownership. County Attorney
Tom Conner swore out two war-
rants against some of the Wash-
ita officials for their extraordi-
nary actions in this matter. They
were all in Hobart Monday night
and trouble between them and
Bourland and Jesse Morris was
narrowly averted. We have seen
Jesse Morris "go some" with the
toughest men in the two territo-
ries at Mt. View before the
opening and as a result of a
brief misunderstanding, argued
out with six-shooters, five
men lay on the floor of Smith
Brown's old saloon, shot
to pieces, Morris among the num-
ber. Bourland wont do to fool
with "at all" as Bill Robbins
says, he has seen both sides of
life and is now as good and de-
termined an officer of the law as
there is in Oklahoma.
Our opinion is that the Hughes
have tied up with their masters
and that the Washita officials are
in" very bad.
We shah see what we shall see.
npHK CITY NATIONAL has several customers who do
• not often come to the bank but send in their deposits by
mail. The bank promptly mails them a receipt for the de-
posit. The customer then issues his checks also by mail and
does a good banking business from his R. F. D. Box.
We invite others to use this system and become identified
with us in building up a strong banking business in this new
county. Should you desire to send money away, write your
letter to the party to whom you are sending and mail the let-
ter to us, enclosing your check on us for the amount desired
sent; plus exchange (as shown below) and postage, and we
will send the party the money along with your letter,
notifying you of the remittance.

It Pays to Advertise
in the Chief.
Col. Hayes, the popular sale
crier and auctioneer officiated at
the big Gilliland sale 17 miles
southwest of Hobart on Tuesday.
He said last night that it was
the largest attended and most
successful sale he had seen this
year. He attributes this, by the
inquiry he made, to the fact that
the sale was advertised in the
Chief. We print the finest sale
bills and advertise the sales.
The people read the Chief and
the sales are well patronized.
That's what you want, ain't it,
when you have something to sell?

E. D. C. Debate.
There was a large attendance
at the Presbyterian churoh Fri-
day night to hear the high school
debate. The question discussed
was the governmental ownership
of railroads. Affirmative, Harry
Cook and Jim Hogan; negative,
Asa Reeves and Harry Reese.
The speeches were all good and
plainly showed that Hobart is
going to have some better speak-
ers in the future than she has in
the past. The decision was given
to the affirmative side.
The olub was entertained after
the debate at a splendid luncheon
given by Misses Robertson and
Seavers, two of our most popular
young lady teachers. The boys
all enjoyed themselves hugely
and unanimously voted their en-
tertainers "two mighty good

reforms whereby our tax-payers
may be saved some money. Our
