fore midnight to-night, scared al
most out of his wits, and vtated that
he had been run away from home in
the cedars by a negro man who was

Officers Keehan and Desmond hurried
to tho scene, and after locating the
obstreperous darky, separated, each
taking a different route through the
weeds by which to close in on him.
The Officers stealthily crowded upon
the offenderjand before he was aware
of their presence they had him cov
ered, fore and aft, with their six
shooters. Finding that the Officers

Dkni&on, July 10. Information
reachod Douison to-day that an armod
force of cowmoii had invaded tho llt
tlo town of Ardmore, on the Santa Fo
railway in tho Chickasaw nation, and
had compelled Collector Ben McMish
to surrender tho cattlo held for taxes.
From Mr. Jim Thompson, a promi
nent Chlcasaw, who to-day returned
from Ardmoro, Itls learned that tho
invading party numbered about fifty
with'.tho und stars stripes floating over
them, demanded that thoir cattle bo
given up. Their demands being re
fused they forcibly took possession
and headed the stock for their respec
tive ranches. Gov. William Guy Is
at present in Ardmore, and Mr.
Thompsoui thinks that the Indian
milltlu, which was disbanded some
woeko ago, will be at onco .organized
and go into active service. When tbo
trouble was feurod some weeks ago
GovGuy had a conference with the
cattlemen, who agreed to pay the $1
tax, whereupon the governor dispers
ed the militia. As soon as that was
done the cowmen violated their prom
ise, and rode into Ardmore, armed
with Winchesters and six-shooters,
and compelled McLlsh to concede to
their demauds. Mr. Thompson is of
the opinion that blood will be shed, as
Gov. Guy in a man who will not allow
his territorial rights trampled upon,
and nioro especially does ho feol em
bittered against them from tho fact
that the men with whom he hud con
ferred uro.the same who ho openly
violated tho Indian rights. Their ap-
pearanoe under the
