Oklahoma City, April 23 This
town is in a fearful muddle. A num
ber of town sito companies were or
ganized previous to the opening to take
charge 01 things, and now each organ
ization wants to hare things its own
wav. The conscauenco is that the lo
cators hive been holding meetings all
day trying to come to Eomo amicablo
agreement as to width of tho location
and tho direotion of the streets As
soon as a meeting would adjourn, hav
ing settled things as those participat
ing supposed, somebody would oall a
convention somewhere else and a total
ly different plan would be agreed upon.
Thus the day ended
WITHOUT ANYTHING DEFINITE
having been really agreed upon by the
mass of locators. To-morrow will dawn
upon a community as badly befogged j
as tney wero mis morning, xnis win

less trouble of some nature has arisen
at Quthrie since 7:30 yesterday even
ing when Ibis correspondent left there,
that place will have a long lead over
this place in tho race for metropolitan
honors. The Kansas man has been the
most prominent figure. He may be a
jayhawker and mudcat fisherman in
f;eceral, but when it comes to a town
ot squable he is
AN AB.TIBT OF THE FlUST CLASS.
Whoever falls into soup in the final
round-up here, the man- from Kansas
will be quietly and industriously float
ing in the swim. Houso building is
being rapidly pushed, in spite of tho
unsettled condition of real estate.
House frames have been snipped in al
ready fastened together, and setting
them up and nailing on the sides and
roof were so easily done that a good
many of them presented an almost fin
ished appearance when night came on.
Provisions are hard to got here. Board

only killing reported in this section,
and it is not well authenticated. A
good many slight injuries are reported
among those who wero too eager in
jumping from moving trains. One
man showed up here to-day with a
badly damaged face and two very
black eyes from lighing head first.
Another broke an arm when he struck
ground. One man in crossing the
river lost his pants and coat contain

everybody seems to be in good humor,
All are taking matters very oooly. A
good many have given up the hope of
making anything and left, but many

dled the gratuity fund of the exchange
out of nearly $200,000 by means of a

himself in a private letter addressed
to an old acquaintunoo of the ex

It was last summer, it will be re

was made that he bad been systemati
cally robbing the gratuity of whioh he
was attorney, and on the very day on
which tho matter was made publto he
negotiated a loan of $10,000 with an
up town bank and disappeared. Until
the receipt of his letter no word has
been heard of him, His hiding place
was a mvetery.
Pinkerton s men have tried to find
him, hit photograph and personal de
scription had been sent to every city
in tho civilized world and a large re
ward was offered. No olue followed
and until yesterday no ono had the
slightest idea where be was. Whe

going to Canada, and how he got to

not stated whethor or not his adopted
daughter shares his exile.

Detroit, Mich , April 23 -An even
ing paper sajs the National conven
tion of machinery .constructors,
Knights of Labors, are in secret ses
sion in this city with about 200 dele
gates in attendance. They aro from
all over tho United States, represent
ing draughtsmen, pattern makers,
moulders, boiler mnkes, blacksmiths
and machinists. It transpires that it
is the work of this convention which
brought Powdcrly to Detroit. It has
leaked out that this combination of
Knights of Labor assemblies, the moBt
in uential in numbers in tho United
States, havo instructed their delegates
to take steps to secede from the
Knights of Labor and to rosolve them
selves into a trades union and havo
representation in the federation of
trades. The movement 4s based on the
olaim that the general management of
the.Knights of Labor sorves them in
one good, stead in their relations with
trade, that it is an organization which
deals with abstract principles while
their' immediate interest is of more
importance, and thai this interest will
be better subserved in the trades union.
