Jury In County Court
Gives Judge Holding
PRESENTED A CHAIR
After the Judge Had Entertained
Them and The Court House
Officials at Dinner
"Sit down, Judge." It Is not of
ten that u juror orders a judge of
(he court to take a eeat and when
Juror Holland of Boise ordered Judge
Holding of the county court to take a
sent Thursday afternoon at about 1
o'clock fio judge looked bowildered,
nnd then seeing that the one Jumr,
who evidently meant business, was
a parently backed "p by all of tna
other jurors he sat dovCn.
The inildent, however, did not
happen in the court room, but in the
lobby of the Robinson hotel'. Nor
was the order given in other than tho
most trlendly spirit. Tho Judgu was
not tired. In fact ho was feeling
fine, and had not anticipated sitting
down urtil he had thoroughly satisfied
himself that all of his poms forty
guest?, composed if tho jury which
has been faithfully serving during
tho present term uf court and all of
the court house ofli ials, had bean
well and thoroughly fea and vro
not wanting for anything that mfht
make for their comfort. The present
term of court nas been an arduous
one, not alone because, of tho large
amount of work on the docket but also
becauso of the extreme heat, and in
appreciation of their faithful services
Judce Holding planned to entertain
the jurors Thursday at dinner at the
Roinbson house, inviting all tho
court hrusa official to enjoy tho
feast wllh them.
Ho accordingly had ordcrod that
tho "fatted lamb" bo slaughtered
and turned over to Charley Robinson,
who in turn turned it over to his chef
with tho result that when tho forty
guests sat down to the tables Thurs.-
day noon there was spread before
them a most appotizing feast towhicn
each and every one did amolo justice.
Nothing went wrong to mar tho pleas-
ures of tho dinner except that Judge
iKerr made a motion that Deputy
Clork Oclko bo cit?d for contempt
becauso he insisted in monopolizing
tho attention of tho ladies at the
table to the exclusion of the Judge.
Tho motion was overruled, but not
before Deputy Sheriffs Draoor and
Armstrong had threatened to get in
tho gamo and "confls:ato" tho mut
ton. After all had left tho tablea Judge
' Holding was inticed into the office
whe o the jurors had assembled with
- the other guests and then it was that
he was ordered to nit down in an ele
gant lounging chair which tho mem.
bern qf the jury had purchased, and
which Juror Holland, in bohalf of
the jury, presented to him, assuring
him that his consideration, courtesy
and attention during tho term had
been fully appreciated by each and
every memter. The Judge was com-
' pletely surprised, but ho proved him
self equal to tho occasion, as ho at
' ways does, and expressed his thanks
and appreciation in a few happy and
well chosen words. Tao occasion was
voted u doligUful one by all present.

Anti-Horse Thief As
sociation Gets Af
ter Pardon Board
Made Against the Frequent Rec-
comendations for Pardons
(81'KCtAL TO DAILY DEMOCIUT.)
GUTHRIE, Okla., Aug. 12-Tho
Oklahoma Stnto Board of i'nrrfons has
stirred members of tho uklnhomn
Anti-Horso thief association to tho
point of resisting tho frequency of
tho board's recommendations for
pardons and paroles. James Kirk-
wood, former prosident of tho asso
ciation and now clork or tho Logan
County Suporior Court, dcrvcs tho
county associations by representing.
them before tho pardon board. Late
ly ho denounced to Governor Ilaskoll
what Kirkwood called tho "star
chamber proceedings" of tho board.
J. P. Connors, prcsldont of tho
board was present.
Tho caso before tho board was tho
application of Gcorgo Alderman of
Kay County, about 37 years old, now
serving a ponltentlary sentence of
four years for stealing hogs. Appli
cation for his parolo was made bo
foru ho had been in prison a week.
Tho Kay County Antl-Horso thief
Association hnd spent $700 in con;
victing Alderman, declaring that ho
haJ been n member of a gang of
thiovos for tho last fifteen years.
Alderman's wife nrd soveral of his
friends appeared boforo tho governor
this week to insist upon tho patolc.
Nino members of tho Kay County
AntMlorso thief Association camo to
Guthrlo and with Kirkwood appeared
against Alderman. Mrs. Alderman,
a young woman dropped on her knees
boforo Governor Haskell and, weep
ing bosccchcd him for tno release of
her husband, to which tho members
of the Anti-Horeo thiof Association
offered vigorous protest. Governor
Ilaskoll referred tho caso to tho
board of pardons for further consid
eration. It was then that Kirkwood
attacked tho board.
"The Antl-Hnrsethief Association
has been at wrk In Oklahoma since
tho first days of settlement," said
Kirkwood "and wo aro unwilling
thut lawless men shall escape just
punishment through strong influence
or even tears. In Oklahoma two
horses aro stolen annually to one in
any other state. Four horses aro
jBtolen for every ono thousand mem
bers of our organization, which
amounts to four thousand horses a
year, as tho association has forty
thousand members. Few horses nro
brought from Texas to Oklahoma as
tho Tcxans are hard on borsothiovcB,
seldom lotting them escape tho peni
tentiary, whero thoy are kept from
five to ten years. ' '
In ono trip a few months ago,
Kirkwood got cwidenco that caught
nine men and recovered eleven horses.
Seven of tho men are now in the pen
itentiary. Tho stato pen'tcntiary at Mc
Alester is rapidly being filled with
prisoners. Four or five months ago,
when tho convicts were brought from
Lansing, Kan., thoir namber was be
tween 500 and GOO. On August 1 tho
prison rocords showed that J, 001 co.i.
vict8 wore behind tho walls.
