AN ACCIDENTAL SHOT FROM A
COLT’S AUTOMATIC ENDS
LIFE OF GAMBLER,
With the same pistol with which
he had killed his man, Robert Kerr,
gambler, met accidental death Wed-
nesday while hunting with a party of
friends, one mile east of W heatland.
It was the automatic Colt’s, with
which Kerr shot had killed George
Burton, a gambler, on June 11, 10u9,
in Kerr’s gambling rooms, 14£ South
Robinson Avenue, that killed Kerr.
Kerr was tried in the district court
and acquitted of the charge of mur-
dering Burton, on March 30 of this
year, it being clearly shown that the
killing was in selfdefense.
He bad been shooting at telegraph
poles as tlie automobile in which thu
party was riding sped along the road,
and it is believed he forgot to throw
tlie catch when he put it hack into
his pocket. When the machine
stopped, Kerr attempted to climb
over tlie door, ami the revolver
caught in some way. The shot
severed the femoral artery, and he
bled to death in a few minutes, be-
fore he could be rushed to a physi-
cian in Wheatland.

FARMERS' COTTON GIN
BURNS AT CHOCTAW CITY
A fire supposed to have been caused
by a hot box in the cotton press or a
match carelessly dropped, caused the
destruction of the Farmers’ Gin at
Choctaw, last Saturday afternoon at
three o’clock. A stiff gale was blow-
ing at tlie time and the residences ol
N. N. Evans, Z. T Sims and C. P.
Compton were threatened but by
hard work were saved. Sparks from
the gin caught in the grass at the
Evans home and it was thought for
a time that the structure was doomed,
but the fire was finally extinguished,
not however, until Mr. Evans was
severely burned about the hands in
his effort to get the fire under con-
The loss to the gin property is
about $10,000, with no insurance,
the policy having expired, it is said
on October 28. About fifty bales of
cotton outside of the gin were saved.
STATE ELECTION BOARD FIRES
COUNTY BOARD, BUT THEY
FAIL TO STAY FIRED.
A petion was filed in the district
court Tuesday morning asking that
J. J. Beal ami E. S. Blackburn be
restrained from countiug the Okla-
homa county returns, and that they,
as members of the Oklahoma county
election board, who had been ex-
pelled by the state election board,
he compelled to surrender the keys,
ballot boxes aud their authority to
the newly appointed board. Neither
Judge Clark nor Judge Carney sigu-
ed the order prayed for in the peti-
tion, but, acting upon the advice of
■County Attorney Reardon, Beall and
Blackburn remained away from tlie
canvassing room and tlie ballots were
not distil rhed
The Judges will probably take
some action on tlie matter this, Fri-
Tlie state election board claims
that Beall and Blackburn are dis-
qualified, Hie former being a candi-
date for justice of the peace and tlie
latter being deputy county clerk.
The Republicans fear that a steal
is on, and that if Beall and Black-
burn are forced to quit, tlie negro
precincts will lie excluded from tlie
count, and the entire Democratic
ticket el ted.
The e vine of the controversy is
being watched with great interest.
GUTHRIE WINS FIRST BLOOD
IN STATE CAPITAL FIGHT
Guthrie wins the state capitol
back, by the decision of the Okla-
homa supreme court handed down at
10 o’clock Tuesday morning.
Ok.ahoma City was sustained,
however, in her contention that the
enabling act fixing tlie capitol at
Guthrie until 1SU3 was not binding.
The court knocked out the election,
which was held on June 11, on the
grounds of unconstitutionally of the
ballot used under the initiated bill.
The exact ground was that the title
diil not conform to the law.
Associate Justice John Turner
handed down the chief opinion and
the three conclusions he reached
were that tlie constitutional ordin-
ance accepting the requirement Hint
the capitol remains at Guthrie until
1913 was a law until repealed; that
the enabling act in fixing the capitol
at Guthrie was not binding and that
the capitol location bill was improp-
erly submitted June 11, and hence
Governor Haskell is expected to
call a special session of the legislat-
ure in a few days, to pass an act
moving the capitol to Oklahoma City.

He would realize that “They Say”

He would attend strictly to his

He would buy all his goods in

He would not bring dissensions

“QUEER" MAN CAUGHT
AT OKLAHOMA CITY
Bert Morgan, aged 85, thought by
the secret service department to be a
member of a band of counterfeiters
now operating in Oklahoma, was ar-
rested by Detective Evans Thursday
afternoon at Oklahoma City.
At the time that Morgan was ar-
rested, he had with him a full kit of
tools for the coining of silver dol-
lars, and the metals for their com-
position. Morgan was taken before
United States Commissioner Black
and placed underfloOo bond.
For some time past the secret ser-
vice department lias been receiving
reports that a baud of counterfeiters
are working in tbe state, but tbe
guilty persons could net be landed.
Morgan is thought to be at the
head of the hand, and to have an or-
ganized force tnat 1 ‘shove the queer. ”
None of the “made to order” dollars
were found on Morgan, and this lends
strength to the belief of the police
that the man has been handing out
his products for others to pass off.
The methods used by the counter-
feiters for disposing of their goods,
is the buying of articles at small
value and the receiving of change
for the spurious money which they
give the merchants.
A band of these counterfeiters was
recently broken up in Shawnee,
Okla., and tbe local secret service
department is of the opinion that
Morgan is one of tlie gang that es-
J. H. Crum, near Harmony, has
bought a bill of lumber of Davidson
& Case, for a new house on his farm.
