May Parole Dalton.
Gov. Stanley, ot Kansas, has
decided to hear tho application for
a parole oi Kmmett Dalton, the
outlaw, eicrving a life sentenoo in
tho penitentiary for complicity in
the Ooileyvillo raid nlno yeorB
ago. Tho oaso has beon sot for
November 15. Dalton's mother,
who lives at Kingfieher, Ok., is
working up the case. The grounds
on whioh the parolo is asked arei
That Dalton was only lu years
old whon ho committed the oflense;
that ho did not tiro a shot or hurt
anybody In the raid; that ho was
inveigled into the a oh emu to raid

tljat ho has been a model prisoner.
A decision of much importance
waa handed down Saturday by
Judge Townsend in the injunction
j5Ult brought by property owners
of Ardmore on the right of way
againtt the Arkansas and Choctaw
road. The suit was brought to
enjoin tbo road from passing
through the plaintiffs' homes.
The court held that the act of
congress giving roads tho right lo
paBB through tho territory allows
them lo pass through towne. The
question of whether the railroad
company must pay for the lots
was not touohed upon.
Judge Townsend said he was in
doubt whether railroads could be
forced to jiay lor any property in
towns, except improvements. If
no compromise is reached the
matter will be heard in the De
cember term of court.
The Aikaneas and Chcctaw has
tendered the town 880,000 aud it
is believed that the citizens will
contribute an amount wh'cb,
added to tho 830.COO, will be suf.
ficlenl lo satisfy tbo property
owners and the right of way will
be platted on the official map to
the railroad. This matter has
held up the town plat and until t
is settled the citizens can not own
property in feo simple.
The combined forces of the Pink
erlon detective agency, the Sante
Fe secret service nnd United Stales
Marshals in tho Indian territory
are preparing to scour tho territory
in eearoh of tho murderer of S. O.
Montgomery, tho Santa Fe secret
servico man who was assassinated
at hie home in Wiufield, Kas.,
eoveral days ago.
A number of Kansas sheriffs will
join in what promises to bo the
most thoroughly organized man
hunt in recent years.
The crime is charged to a mem
ber of tho Sol Templo band of out
laws, and it has been definitely
proven that after the commission
ot the cowardly crimo he escaped
into tho rough Chickasba country,
where he is supposed to be in hid
ing with other members ot the
The search, howover, will not
be confined to that section of tho
territory alone, but with tho estab
lishment of n cordon of officers
around tho supposed hiding place
of tho bandits, other forces will
enter tho territory at different
points and watch every poreible
road to escape
Tho officers are certain that the
territory ' contains the murderer
and the entire forco of United
States marshals will join in tho
hunt. Sol Temple, tho leader of
the gang, Is at present in jail at
Pond Creek, but all efforts to forco
any clue as to the whereabouts of
his followers from him have failed.
Tho circumstances attending the
murder ofhe officer show that his
assassin was a being of wolfish
cunning. At tho time of the mur-
der Montgomery was seated at a
tablo in his modest liltlo home in
WinCeld, Kas., engaged in writing
a letter. Tho window curtains
were raised and tbo light from a
lamp shining full upon him, made
him a certain target Jfor bis mur
derer, who, firing through the
window, sent a charge of buckshot
through his viotims brain.
The home of the murdered man
was in the suburbs of Winfield,
and some time elapBtd beforo the
officers were notified and had
found the murderers trail, which
was lost in the railroad yards.
Since then a number of clues
have been lollowed without suc
cess, until yesterday, when it was
definitely proven that he was in
The officers aro confident of run
ning him down,, but anticipate a
bloody battle before his capture or
death is accomplished.
