THE PHILIPS DECISION SEEMS
TO INVOLVE EVERY COUNTY
IN THE TERRITORY.
STIITOTORY WHY PROVIDED
Commissioners Authorised to Cur*
Defects at to Poll Books and Re-
turns of Election Board—Will
Causa s Few Daya Delay.
The Phillips decision, handed down
•one weeks ago from the circuit
•oart at 8t. Louis, In the Asa Sharpe
and which decision attacked
the validity of the trisl Jury, has
opened the eyes of courts and at-
torneys to a surprising condition of
afairs throughout the whole of Okla-
homa, no county yet having been
found but had more or less defects
to Its credit In the matter of Juries.
None sre perhaps incurable, yet the
courts of the whole territory seem
to have been considerably wool-gath-
ered by the situation. «t remains
for Judge Irwin to have found the
simplest and at the same time the
most plainly legal way out of the
difficulty, at least so far as Greer
oounty Is concerned.
It appears that the muddle grew
out of failure, on the part of election
boards, to make proper return of Ju-
rors as required by law; these fail-
ures occurring In different ways by
different boards, some failing to make
any Buch return at all, while others
failed to subscribe to ihe special affi-
davit required, and which was printed
In the back of poll books, as tpllows:
We. the undersigned Judges of elec-
tion In and for precinct No. do
solemnly swear that when the polls
are closed, and at the same time we
make a poll of the votes cast, we
will examine the list of names on the
poll books, and therefrom we will
select names and return to the coun-
ty clerk, to serve as jurors; that In
making such selection, we will se-
lect only such peraons as are knowa
to us to bo of good moral character,
of sound Judgment, and of unques-
tionable Integrity, and that we will

nek shot himself, his sister, his broth-

of a family quarrel that had ezls el

prepare the remains.
Advancing to the corpse John placed
his hands on the lifeless body and

At Mountain View this morning
about one o'clock, Claude Dixon shot
and probably fatally wou.ded Tied
Hester. The bullet entered the left
side and came out at the back. The
difficulty which led up to the shoot-
ing is of long stand ng.
The trouble began In a restaurant
last night and was followed shortly
afterward by the shoot.ng.
Hery Hewitt is under arrest for
being an accessory after (be fact.
He had secreted Qixon under a bed
In the house where Deputy B b Allen
found him. A wl d,w was ra:a?d at
Hew.fls house and Allen fired one
shot. The whole crowd Int rested
In the affiay are a tough lot.
Kester fired four shots at Dixon
from a Colt's 45. Dixon did his shojt-
ing with a 38 bull-dcg.
Kester is not doad but appears to
bo shot through the kldneyd and
mortally wounded. Kester .di ed Kid

INSURANCE COMMISSION OF OK-
LAHOMA WILL NOT OUST
MUST BE FOUND INSOLVENT
Thousands of Beneflclhrles Would be
Mstsrlally Affected by Any
Radical Action, Says Mr.
William Grimes, Insurance Commis-
sioner for Oklahoma, in his position
that no action should be taken by the
Insurance Commissioners of the va-
rious states and territories against
the life Insurance companies, now un-
der fire in New York, until such com-
panies are shown to be Insolvent, Is
but following the same line of action
that he did a year ago. In regard to
a Minneapolis company, which was
doing an extensive life Insurance bu-
siness la Oklahoma. Because of un-
wise management the company was
being investigated. Demands were
made upon Grimes that he oust the
company from the Territory, but un-
der the law he had no right unless the
company should be found Insolvent.
The examining commission pronounc-
ed the company solvent; the stock-
holders demanded a change of man-
agement, as In the case of the'Equi-
table, and the company is still doing
a thriving business.
Mr. Grimes, from his records, shows
there are 9,000 persons in Oklahoma
holding policies In the Equitable, New
York Life and New York Mutual.
These 9,000 policies represent 3G,000
beneficiaries within Oklahoma, and
therefore Mr. Grimes nolds that any
action against the company is also
against the Oklahoma policy holders,
who are also stockholders in the com-
"That there should be a thorough
investigation by the proper authori-
ties. able to reach th? facts, seems
very necessary," said Mr. Grimes re-

The Farmers' Union of Greer coun-
ty held a session In thld place last
Friday. About fifty delegates from
different portions of the county were
present. The report of T. A. Putnam,
•ho attended the territorial conven-
tion at Shawnee, was heard. T. A,
Putnam was elected business agent
of the union, to attend to the ship-
ping of cotton to Galveston and Hous-
ton, Texas, at which place It will
oe stored and the farmers allowed to
borrow money on It at the rate of six
per cent interest. Another duty of
Mr. Putnam will be to operate the
farmers' union coal yard in this city
and he will begin business as soon
the scales can be adjusted and re-
paired and other matters necessary
attended to. The yard will be located
at the old Wm. Scarborough stand an
South Pennsylvania avenue.
Another matter prominent before
the meeting was the discussion rela-
tive to establishing a farmers' union
and educational paper for Greer coun"
ty. A resolution was passed endors-
ng Miss Laura Moore, ex-county sup-
erintendent of public Instruction, as
editress, and the initial number of
the paper will appear about the 15th
of this month, and Its place of pub-
lication will be Mangum. It will be
a combined farm and school Journal
and will be Issued semi-monthly.
A resolution was pessed to hold cot-
ton for eleven cents or better.
