A man giving Ills name as J. II. Dent

brought to this tily. He now occupies
(juurtors in theb.istile.

Dent was one of the men doing tho
crooked work. Ho posed as a deputy
United States marshal and mndo scads
of money by ndvaueing men in line.
In order' to make his business mure
secure, Duut had the nerve nnd au
dacity to have tickets printed, which
ho gave to his purchasers for money
consideration. Following; Is n fac

has mndo from 95,000 to 80,000 out of
his nefarious work within tlio past
four days. Dent finally managed to
scrapu up a m.(iU bond and was re
leased from jail.

day last deputy marshals were not in
charge of any of tho land olllces. At
that lime the outrages became so no
torious that Marshal Nix placed his
men lu charge of thcoHico at Perry.
Since then no crookod work has been
attempted. The mililnry is m cltarge
of the Enid land olltee. Since Dent's
