Tho Urave Covers onr Friends From
View and Prison Doors Close Forever
Behind tho Mnrdcrcri.
Last wcok wo closed a horrible-
Cbaptor detailing" tho murdor of onr
townsmen A. P. Cloodykoontz and
Frank II. Cass at Sac and Fox Agency
on the night of the 18th ult. by pre-
dicting that tho bodies would reach
hero on Friday afternoon and that tho
interment would occur at onco. Buch
wcro tho courso of ovents. With a
little delay tho funeral cortcgo repaired
fron tho depot dlroct to tho cemetery
and tho bodies of our friends wcro con-
signed to mother earth. Never did a
greater assemblage of our citizens
traverse this sorrowful road and
never did moro hearts feel
tho pangs of anguish. Tho
funeral ceremonies of Mr. Cass were
performed by tbo Freemasons at the
request of his wllo and wo bclievo at
tho frequently expressed Mishofhlm-
solr. Itov Mr. Wheat olflciatcd at tho
interment of Mr. Goodykoontz which
took placo immediately following tho
Tho prediction attributed last week
to Marshal Isbcll that tho murderers
would bo captured has been realized.
They aro now behind tho bars at Fort
Smith and It truly seems as though
nothing short of a miracle can save
them from tho gallows. Tho first in-
formation obtained looking to an un-
raveling of the murder s from somo
colorod pooplo living at what was onco
known as Postoak Taylor's twenty flvo
miles this sldo of whoro tho crime was
committed. They had seen two negroes
coming rapidly from tho direction of
Sao and Fox tho morning following tho
murder. Tho horses thoy were riding
corresponded with thoso which tho un-
fortunate men had driven and this fact
having been observed impressed tho
Occurrence upon tho parties' minds.
A number of other minor circumstances
wont to confirm tho belief that tlioco
two negroes woro the murderers. Tholr
pursuit was attended with few difficul-
ties and last Saturday evening termina-
ted in capturo at a point ten miles from
Eufaula. Tholr names aro Jako and
JooToblerand thoy aroaged probably
twenty-two and nineteen respectively.
Parties who know tbo family to which
they bolong say the membors aro a
hordo of thieves and cut-throats of tho
lowest typo. Tho mother lives at Old
Agency near Muskogee and the father
and other relatives noar Okmulgoe.
Tho next heard of tho Toblcrs after
thoy passed Taylor's was of their going
down tho Arkansas on the west side.
On Saturday wo believo it was follow-
ing tho murder thoy were at Muskogco
nrl iltanlnvfirl Air. f 4nntv1rrnnir'll
watch and a number of other articles
taken by them. Next day tbodlscovery-
oftho murdor was announced and as
soon as a description of tho various
things missing was announced the
identity of tho murderers was estab-
lished One of the guns was recovered
almost at onco from a person who had
traded for it up in Marshalltown. Very
naturally the murderers wero presum-
ed to bo secreting themselves in that
unsavory neighborhood and a soarch
was begun. Wbllo It was in progress
last Saturday however by tho Creek
light horso tho anuouncomont came
from Eufaula that for $500 the Toblcrs
as well as tho horses and other plunder
would bo brought In. Receiving a
favorablo answer from Mr. A.B. Oaes
at Muskogee Hintz Posey telegraphed
some hours later that he bad'tho men
In charge. A number of officers went
down to Eufaula that night and next
day at one o'clock brought them here
on tho passenger train. On their
arrival tho depot platform was lined
with pcoploall eager to catch a glimpse
of tbo villains who had been tbe sourco
of so much troublo and excitement.
They wcro chained together by tho legs
and nock also and from their crouching
and scringing actions it could plainly
bo scon that they expected nothing
but death. After being placed in tho
calaboose a short time they became
talkative and laughed chatted and
cried we bclievo at intervals. What
followed can best bo told by tho report
of J. II. Akin tbo secretary and is
A mooting of the citizens of Vinita
was hold at tho opera house on Sun-
day afternoon to devlso means of pro-
curing it possible a confession from
tho two negro prisonors. The gontle-
men hereafter named agreed to serve in
the capacity assigned to them with the
explicit understanding that nothing
should look to any Illegal violence or
saver of any outlawry on part of tho
Dr. M. Frazce was chosen president
and J. II. Akin socrotary. Rev. W. P.
Haworth Dr. B. F. Fortner W.E. Hal-
sell Ham Goodykoontz and Pomp
Brown wero selected and appointed as
a commltto of flvo to confer with the
officers iu chargo of tho prisoners and
endeavor to obtain an intervlow with
tho said prisonors and if posslblo obtain
their confessions. Tho meeting then
adjourned until 0:30 o'clock.
On reassembling tho minutes of tho
last meeting were read and approved
when Dr. Fortner on behalf of tho
commltteo announced that a confes-
sion had been obtained and it was
A motion was mado and carried to
publish tbo minutes of this meeting.

The meeting then adjourned sine dlo.
It was thought best not to publish
the confession and honco wo will only
say that tho darkeys admlttod that
thoy wore guilty and they alono. They
say thoy wero camped noar tho fatal
spot when Messrs. Goodykoontz and
Cass drovo up and woro spoken to by
them; that during the night thoy con-
colvod tho ldoa of killing them for tho
purposo of robborry.
On Monday thoy wero taken by
Deputy Marshal Jones to Fort Smith
and It Is probable they will novcr sco
tho outer world again. Persons lamll-
lsr with tho manner in which Justice Is
dispensed in the fedoral court feel pos-
itivo that in less than six months tho
gallows will have claimed tho Toblcrs.
Beforo being taken away tbey made a
number of othor statements Implicating
John amlGcorgo Miller and Mitchell
llruner tbo latter a negro but no ono
credits the story ifanybody expected
to sco two hardened or repulsive vil-
lains thoy must havo beeri disappointed
as tho Toblcrs wero two as strriple look-
ing and trifling coons as ever camo to
any town. Thero was a strong feeling
In favor of lynching but tbo action of
the mooting had tho effect to circum-
vent such a thing. Now that tho mat-
ter is ovor with wo trust all aro glad it
terminated as It did. Tho gentlemen
who assisted Mr. Posey in tho capturo
woro Boh Gentry and Froeland Mcin-
tosh. Thopcoplo at Sac and Fox took

Tho conclusion has been reached wo
aro told that tho murder was commit-
ted on tho Sac and Fox reservation and

turning some time later ebo was found
caught by the neck in the ropo and

Postage. Under tho new regulations
as most of our readers aro probably
aware a letter that doesn't exceed an
ounce in weight will bo carried to any
point In tho United States for two cents
but as few have letter scales a conve-
nient method for arriving at an ounco
will bo acceptable. A silver dollar is a
good test as its weight Is only a trifle
less than an ounce consequently a let-
tor that will balance a dollar in silver
or two half dollars will go through tbo
malls for ono two-cent stamp.
Some Sestesces. In tho district
court at Independence Kansas Julius

robbing a man of twenty dollars was
sent up for ten years.
Cheeky. Taking it all In all the
printing offlco is tho placo whero pure
cheek comes to the surface in all of Its
unadorned beauty. A party comes in
smiling and by instinct the publisher
smells a "roast" but resignedly waits
to bo onlightoned as to tho modus ope
randi. The smiling ono begins by com-
plimenting tho outfit on the genoral
got-up of tho paper and doslres a copy
or two to send to frlonds. Ho is clear up
on postal regulations and so writes his
name on tho paper that his friend may
know who has rcmemborod him. Next
ho would liko tho paper to go to tho
postofflco with our regular mail thus
saving a ono cont stamp. Tho perform-
anco ends by Mr. Spongo thanking
his victim for tho kindness and hurry-
ing out. This is tho way somo pcoplo

er's expense. N.B. This schomo don't
