The Grand Jury made a report
late Wednesday evening, returning
rour oi me indictments arc re
turned against Carl Beaty, former
county treasurer, now a resident of
Ardmorci charstmg him with the em
bezzlement or $1,250 of the county's
funds. There are two counts of $500
each, one of $100 and one of $50.00.
Mr. Beaty was already .under bond
on information filed by the county
attorney's office. Justice Archibald
requiring bond of $2,500 which was
made. The matter was turned over
to the grand jury when it convened
with the resulting four indictments.
Thirteen of them are indictments
against former County Treasurer
Ij. S. Bonner for that number of
alleged defalcations of county funds
while he was deputy under Treasurer
Cnrl Beaty. The largest sum in the
list is for around $200.00.
One found against R. I. Bowles,
in which he is charged with carrying
n weapon with the intent to do harm
to a fellowman. This last bill is the
result of an alleged mix-up between
Messrs. Bowles and Water Superin
tendent W. II. Perkinton on the
streets of Durant Monday morning.
It is said that Mr. Bowles was
standing on the street near the light
office, when Mr. Perkinson pa-sed by.
Stories differ as to what transpired,
save that John Lorgc passed and Per
kinson asked him to disarm Mr.
Bowles. At the time Perkinson and
Bowles nppeared to be holding 'each
other, and Bowles right hand was in
his pocket. Mr. Lorge is said to
have interceded and taken a small
double-barrel Derringer from Mr.
Bowles pocket. The incident pa-sed
oft quietly but occasioned quite a
deal of street talk during the day.
The' nineteenth indictment was
against Ezra Wells of near Yarnaby,
charged with not. He was arrested
by the sheriff's force Thursday and
furnished bond. The indictment is
the result of an alleged fcun play in
which ho and others recently engaged
in their neighborhood.
The Grand Jury has been examin
ing a large number of witnesses dur
ing the week. It is said that State
Examiner and Inspector Fred Parkin
son, who has been here some time,
and representatives of the Depart
ment of the Interior have been sub
poened as witnesses, ns well as Vic
tor Locke, superintendent of tho
Five Civilized Tribes at Miiikogec.
