Oklahoma City Star: F. M. 1 {rail's
second trial for the killing of Francis
R. McKennon on Harrison avenue in
Guthrie over two years ago will be bo-
gun in El Reno next week before
Judge liierer, of the Perry district. A
great ileal of interest has always been
manifested in this case on account of
the prominence of the parties con-
cerned and many people are anxious
to know what line of defense Hea.ll
and his attorneys will adopt. The
father of the defendant is a prominent
lawyer of Washington, 1). C., and be-
longs to an old Louisiana family.
Young Heall himself is a man of pleas-
ing address and affable manners and
during his residence in Oklahoma City
he has made many friends of the kind
who stick to one through thick and
thin. lie is fairly ipopular in tin-
town but fully as unpopular in Outli-
ne, where the crime, if ciime it was.
was committed. On the other hand,
Francis It. McKennon, who fell in the
streets of Guthrie with his life blood
oozing out of several wounds, came of
a family equally as prominent as the
Heal is. His uncle, Capt. A >. McKen-
non, is a leading citizen of the state of
Arkansas, and a member of the Dawes
commission, whose report is now in the
mouth of every one. Capt. McKennon
is a lawyer of great learning and an
eloquent speaker and of all the distin-
guished counsel who appeared on
either side at the first trial last .luly
he is probably the most able. He is a
brother in-law of Senator Berry, of
Arkansas, the man who introduced
the Indianola bill in the United States
senate a few days ago.
The theory of the prosecution
and that of the defence it is need-
less to say is quite different. The plea
of self-defense has been entered and
during the first trial, which occurred
last .luly an effort was made to estab-
lish the truth of this view. With all
due regard and kindly feeling for a
man wh is on trial for his life, it is
not too much to say, that this effort
was not entirely a success. The wit-
nesses summoned were few in number
and really knew little which would be
of benefit to 1 Seal 1. Some of them too,
were of such a character that their
testimony could not justly be jjiveu
serious consideration and the attorneys
for the defendant placed most reliance
upon efforts to impugn the character
of witnesses for the prosecution and
confuse the jury by persistcntquibbling
and declamation. A disagreement as
to a verdict was the result ami though
such an outcome was not expected it
was regarded by hardly anyone as be-
ing in accordance with the evidence
submitted. Public sentiment of El
Reno and Oklahoma City, favorable to
Brail before the first trial and
while the line of defense was a
secret turned a/ainst him when the
trial was over. Judge McAtee. who
presided in the case, r.-fused to concur
in the verdict of the jury, and made
accusations of bribery against certain
jurors, which, up to date, have not, so
far as is known, been backed by any
public proof or grand jury indictments
nor in the opinion of the writer, are
they likely to be. Judge McAtee
seemed to lack that calmness of tem-
per which is so essential in a jurist,
and on the occasion referred to proba-
bly let his feelings get the better of
his judgment. On the other hand his
view of what the verdict should have
been was shared by nearly all those
who sat in the court room and listened
to the evidence.
Unless Heall manages to put up a
stronger case than he did in July he
can scarcely hope for an acquittal or
even a disagreement. The people of
this «*ity sincerely hope he is innocent
of the crime charged and nothing
would please them better than to hear
of his just acquittal. But if he is
guilty he should in the eyes of Ood
and man meet with the punishment
the law provides.

kind in the country, that cost S" 00.
The father, as a student, lived in sev-
eral countries, among them Algeria.
Africa, and many countries in Eur-
ope. It is not surprising, then, to
find that among his many admirers.
he should have received a tine statu-

gifts of value from foreign lands and
at home, but he prizes them only for
the friendship they are the tokens of.
As the reporter looked on these lie
thought: The father will never have
the loving hands of a woman bless his
life nor little ones to prattle about his
knees, but as long as he has such to-
kens of friendship, his isolated life for J after the interests of Oklu homa during i

EMBLEMS OF FRIENDSHIP.
Father Metiers' Lovely Gifts of Gold
for the Altar,
Father Metter, the popular Catholic
priest, is an example that strong, un-
prejudiced, human friendships still
exist in the world. However there is
a genuineness and simplicity about
his nature that makes everybody like
him, consequently his life and experi-
ences are the exception and not the
rnle. If the father does not
achieve more than ordinary honors in
his chosen church, it will be a surprise
to his many friends. At least this must
be the opinion of some of his earliest
American friends. The reporter was
shown tokens of friends from New-
York, who knew him when he first
came to America, two years ago. The
presents would make rich anyone but
a priest, who does not care for the tem-
poral value of things. What is best,
the gifts come from friends who are
not Catholics, but who like Father
Metter for himself and not for his re-
ligion. Sometime ago he received a
solid gold chalice for alter services,
that cost 8000 from a young man of
a wealthy family in New York. It is
hand embossed and highly ornamented
The sister of the young man sent him
a chalice to be used in serving com-
munion to the congregotion, of solid
gold cup and the balance of solid sil-
ver, plated with gold, costing 8350.

school work in larger cities with much
older and longer established graded
systems and the schools of Guthrie
will compare favorably with anything
in larger cities.
The board has been fortunate is se-
curing a corps of teachers far above
the average, and the teachers arc more
than usually successful. There must
be some man at the head of these
schools who knows his business and
who is an organi/.er of good ability.
Surely someone is responsible for the

INDIAN HORbt THIEVES.
They Were Sent to .fall to Await a
Trial.
Two Caddo Indians named Caddo
•lake and Charley Adams were ar-
raigned before Judge lSurford at El
Reno yesterday morning, chargcd
with stealing horses from a white man
named Taggett. They pleaded not
guilty and were committed to the
(iuthrie jail to be tried at the next
term of court. The Indians' account
of the matter to .lack Stilwell, the in-
terpreter, was that the Arapahoes
came down to visit the Caddoes and
danced with them, and the usual In
dian custom on such occasions is to
load the visitors with presents. The
Caddo Indians were poor and hat!
nothing to tfive the Arapahecs when
they visited th> :n, and it would never
do lo violate the time-honored customs
of the noble red man and allow the
Anipahoes to return without making
them some presents. So the Caddoes
went out and stole some horses from
the white men in that vicinity and
gave them to the Arapahoes, who re-
turned to their teepes on the North
Canadian well pleased with the result
of their visit to their friends. The
Caddoes will be obliged to settle with
I 'ncle Sam for the horpes.*
