Saturday night at Fort Smith of mur
der. Ho nnd William .Christio were
both on trial for tho samo offense, and
oach of tho defendants hoped to sccuro
an acquittal by showing tho other to
havo been tho guilty party. Tho victim
was a man named Wyrick, living In
Flint district. Bluo Duck was very
drunk, and was determined on having
blood. After killing Wyrick who was
plowing in a field, tho murdoror ehotut
a boy named Billy Wolf who camo rid

house of Hawkoy Wolt tired at him two
