Konawn Okla. Nov. 10 Did
J C. Evans alleged cow thief
familiarly known as "Old Joo"
EvanB really die somo two
months ago as the result of eotno
myetcriously euddon illness or
did ho adopt an unusual mothod
of effecting his eeonpo? Those
are questions which aro being
akod in this city and seotion.
Certain it is that Evans is gone
whether to tho "Land of tha Be-
yond" or outsidotho jurisdiction
of tho local courts is tho question
to bo determined. Cortain also
it is that ho has apparently es-
caped trial on tho charge of oow
An unusual story is told of tho
affair. Evans formerly a oow-
boy and plainsman in tho early
days dovelopod into a "cow
thiol" so tho court records say.
At any rato ho was up in court
a number of .imeBon this ohargo
but always sucoeeded in getting;
out of his difficulties. Three or
four months ago ho was urrosted
on tho charge of "cow theft"
again and his caso set for tho
prosont term of tho distriot court.
EvanB got bond and retained tho
oamo attorney who had holped
him o ut of hia EcraneB before
Tho nttornoy -investigated tho
case and saw that Evans was
"oaught" this time. "Tne evi-
dence is all against you this time
and I am afraid you'ro bound for
the pen. I think you would bo
better oft dead" he told Evans
in u joking manner.
And now ootnea tho unusual
feature of tho storj : A few da'6
before the caso whh set for trial
Evans became suddenly ill and
died over night or at lejst was
supposed to have died. It is
said hero that u coffin was filled
with etones and buried with due
oeremony while Evans got out
of town and loft the country.
Whea tho ease was called in
court it was dismissed. Now
Evans is reported to bo in New
Mexico ana tno authorities are
investigating. The ooffin will
probably be disinterred this week
to ascertain whether or not Evans
eorpse in in it. or whether it is
loaded with atones according to
the B'ory .going the rounds.
