tEPUTY LEDI1ETTER of this
iSf city, with a posse, surprised and
killed two of tho Green boysand fatal
ly wounded tho third one on Verdigris,
near Oolagah, Monday ovcnlng. Tho
Greens havo been terrorizing tho west
ern portion of tho territory for several
week, and nro supposed to have mur
dered several pooplc. On Wednesday,
tho 7th lust., they held up and robbed
the store of Itov. D. N. Lcerakov. Tho
robbers wcro repulsed in tho fight at
tho store, and ran away and loft four
dollars of tholr money lying on tho
counter, but shot Mr. Lecrskov three
times, tho' not dangerously. Thoy
havo been working as cow hands for
Ed Halsollforuycaror two, off and

Tho oillccrs killed Ed nnd Rill and
fatally wounded Arthur, and camoover
to Oolagah and wired tho marshal at
this placo to that effect, and asked for
further orders. Thoy wero Instructed
by wire to bury tho dead whero thoy
wero killed and Drlug tho wounded
man to Vlnltn.
Tho marshals arrived on Tuosday's

outlaw. Tho Greens wero wavlnld in

killed Is a murvol, as ono ot tho out

and besides somo of tho best citizens
of that country thero Were a number
of very tough characters, somo of them

started to run. Mrs. Mellette held

tlio horso Into a fence, when she
Jumped from the carriage and lifted
two of tho children out. Sho also
solzed tho other child and attempted
to pull It out, but thellttlo ono was
too young to appreciate tbo situation
and rofuscd to como wlllimrlv. and he-
foro hor mother could remove her the
horso again started off. and runnlno- n

that the child had escaped Injury. It
was a very narrow escape.
WlNITA Is at tho nrcscnt tlmo tlm
12 greatest of all tho courts In the
Indian country, and slnco tho Juris
diction of tho Ft. Smith court ceased.
It Is tho greatest criminal court probably-In
tlio United States. There is
criminal business enouchalroadv dock
eted to consume more than tho whole
of Judgo Springer's time at tills place,
without even touching tho civil busi
ness. Nearly two weeks havo elapsed
slnco the convening of court, tho
whole of which has been consumed
with tho prosecution of criminal cases,
which hardly marks a beginning of
tho long nnd constantly lengthening
criminal docket. Tho great majority
of criminal cases aro always continued
by the attorneys when it Is possible to
do so, ns tlmo in such cases most gon
erally Inures to tlio benefit of the de
fendant. So it is comparatively easy,
with the present crowded docket, to
get a continuance. Then, tho civil
business at the VInlta court Is piling
up at an enormous rate, and unless
somo relief Is afforded by congress In
the way of Increased facilities It will
soon be hopelessly behind.
STItANGE and pathetic inci
dent occurred in Judco Snrine.
crs court Tuesday morning of this
week. Mrs. Private, a full-blood
Cherokee woman, brought In llttlo
Frank and Mary Shipley, two bright
llttlo orphan children, twins, whose
father and mother had died and left
them homeless and pennyloss. Mrs.
I'rlvato stated that tho father had
died last July near her homo over in
the hills oast of Grand river, and that
sho had taken the llttlo oucs In: that
it becomo known that the father was
drawing a pension, and John Clarko
applied for. and was crantcd letters
of guardianship from tho Chcrokco au-
tiioniies, mil when ho found that the
pension was. only two dollars per
month did not want them, and the
good Indian woman again took them
Into her homo; but belntr verv nonr
and unablo to properly caro for them,
was auviscd to brlnir them to VInlta
and ask Judgo Springer's nd vice. They
aro white children, and tho mother
died a year or two ago in tho states,
and as stated before, tho father died
the last of July. JudL'c Snrlnucr
showed great Interest In llttlo Frank
and Mary and questioned them con
siderably. They both showed great
attachment for the Indian woman and
said they did not want to leave her.
