Saturday must have been a
lioo doo for darkies in Lincoln
county and as a result Dave
Lawson of Fallis, Frank Thomas,
W. M. I laker, Sarah < Sides of
Prague are all in the much over-
crowded Lincoln county jail. A
man by the name of White and
his wife were both shot by Law-
son and Lawson was in turn shot
by a deputy sheriff while trying
to arrest him. This trouble is
said to have arose over White’s
objecting to Lawsons courtship

Mr. Tilghman was elected:
sheriff of Lincoln county in 11100 j

Wm. Tilghman, candidate for
sheriff on the Democratic ticket,
is one of the oldest residents of
Lincoln county. He located on
a claim on Hell Cow creek in
Union township on September
22, 1991, the day Lincoln county
was opened to settlement. By
hard work and industry he soon
opened up one of the best farms
in the county and will this year
market 1000 bushels of apples
from his orchard.
Years ago Mr. Tilghman stock-
ed his farm with thoroughbred
horses, cattle and hogs. No man
in Lincoln county has paid out
more money for thoroughbred
stock and no man in the county
is entitled to more credit for the
improvement of the stock of the

At the time Mr. Tilghman was I
elected in 1900 this county was I
overrun with horse thieves and
criminals and his services were;
badly needed. He caught eight I
horse thieves during the first
thirty days in office. During his
time in office he caught 8 horse
thieves where any other sheriff
has ever captured one. Hei
caught the bank robbers and j
murderers, not one escaped him.
