HEAP BIG CHIEF OOWSLL.
The council meeting last night, to
investigate the charges which had been
preferred against T E. Dowell, chief
ot the El Reno tire department, was
held with closed doors. All members
of the council were present and. from
" hat can be learned, the argument of
the ease was decidedly warm and in-
teresting. \\ hen it came lo n vote
upon the question of retaining Mr
Dowell in office, or firing him bodily,
Councilman Kern, Stanley Hardy, Las
sell and Ricker voted in favor of his re-
tention as chief, and Councilman Kane,
Maney and Gerrer cast ballots calling
for his dismissal. Councilman Lassen
thought that the council should ehange
itself from a court of inquiry to one of
sentencing power, and impose a tine
upon Mr. Dowell for certain actio- -
since his appointment as chief, ibis
idea was frowned down h.v the munici-
I he report of the Investigating cnni-
niitlee reads as follows.
To 1 tie Hun in able Mayor mid Coiim-llniL-n ,-r tin-
City or El Reno, O. T. :
Gentlemen:. We, the undersigned,
your eommiti.ee ap ■ unted to investi-
gate charges preferred against Thos.
L. Dowell, chief ot the FII Reno tire de-
partment, forjmiseonduet and derelic-
tion of duty as such chief, bug leave to
submit tho following report
' Alter a careful and extended inves-
tigation. confined to an examination
of the books, letters and other papers
belonging to, in the possession and un-
der tho control of, and relating lo said
lire department, and the admissions
and representations of said Chief Dow-
ell, we find,
“First—That during the month of
December, 1894, some time prior there-
to. and ever since, said Thos. Fi. Dow-
ell was, and is now, the chief of the
said fire department, and was to and
did receive for his services as such,
from said city, $15 per month; that
from the Ordinance No. 21, relating to
said fire department we are unable to
determine what said chief’s duties con-
“Second—That during said months of
December, 1894, and January, Febru-
ary. March and April, 1895, said chief
presented claims to and received pay
trom said city the same as received by
volunteer firemen (members) of said
department for attending practices—
two a month at $1 each, and ltres at $1
per hour or fraction of an hour—in ad-
dition to his said salary.
'Third—Wc further find that Ihe
bills presented to the city and paid by
it, for services of fire department, dur-
ing the months of December, 1894, and
January, February, May, aud June,
1895, do not correspond with the bonks
of the department, in this, that the
amounts of such bills exceed the
amount such book shows the fire de-
partment entitled to, $15.56 for said
'Fourth—We further find that dur-
ing the month of-, 1*94, a com-
mission of $50 was received by S. A.

HE At.) QUARTERS FOR-
>c'u of tin
thero to witness the mnrriagH of
"ln Allison and Mrs. Sarah A.
•Sutherland. The bride had resided in
Li keuo almost as long as the first city
officers bad, and was a recognized lead-
er in society, church and secret ami be-
nevolent order circles. The groom had
for thirty-two years drawn salary ami
rations aud drunk at the post canteen
as a high private in the regular army;
and the prominence of the contracting
parties made the marriage one of far
more than ordinary interest. Rev. J.
W. Hedges, who performed the marl
riage ceremony, did his work well, and
the bride and groom want from the
church to the Sutherland residence,
‘irm in their belief that years of unal- 1
loyed happiness and joy were ir
store fur them. But they were mis
taken. During the thirty-two years
that Mr. Allison practiced at the can-
teen bar lie developed a thirst for red
liquor that excited the admiration uf
soldiers ol his regiment and the euvy
of the ca> fish in the North Canadian,
and a fat pension and the twenty-two
saioom. of El Reno gave him almost
unlimited opportunities to gratify his
appetite. He availed himself of every
chance, and as a consequence numerous
breakers appeared in the channel of
domestic felicity, ami last week the
climax was reached when Mr. Allison
got on a howling drunk and laid waste
the home camp a whole lot. for which
recreation lie spent several days in jail.
Yesterday the bride of eleven months
tiled a petition for divorce; the groom
of an equal number of months hadn’t
an objection to offer, and this forenoon
Judge liiirford severed the knot which
the preacher tied last fall.

In the case made against Judge Scott
of Oklahoma, by charges preferred
against him, the attorney general has
decided that the charges are for the
most part groundless, and has fully ex-
onerated the judge. In faut, this de-
cision had Jjeeu kreached before Judge
Scott reached Washington, although
he talked the matter over very hilly
whi e here. This puts an end to a contro-
versy which has beeu raging for more
than a year. For a time it was thought
that the charges would take a serious
turn, and it was said that the depart-
ment of justice examiners seut to look
into the case, made a decision adverse
to Judge Senit However this was, the
matter has been wholly cleared away
aud the attorney general announced
his decision this afternoon with expres-
sions of strong commendation for the
officei' III question.
File - :ci tabernacle it the corner of
Kits II and Barker, to be used for the
