KIMott, of this rity.ti.id het n liiiirdcii'd tho tiight be fore at Ctiloosa, whither he went on the nilernooii train to serve some legal papers in the capacity ol deputy cmi- statiln. Tho particular were lew and quickly tuld. Tho tin for I ti unto niiin lell iulo the company of Boh Till ton belter known as Huh lingers in a bil liard hall and both being under the Inlltieneo of liquor, they gut into a light. Elliott was beaten and knocked down, when bystander interfered, got Taltou out of tho room and locked the other in. lie was linally let out, w hen he got on a horse and rode up Hie street. Tallon followed, knocked him oil' Hie horse mid cut his throat wiih a kuife, making t hree hoitihlo gashes, and then left him. Someone pushing by saw Elliott leaning against a post and heard I he blood malting out but thought he was vomiting. Ho proba bly lived t wen I y minute but was dead when next seen. Dr. Warren and some of the neighbors buill a lire and stayed to watch tho body where it laid, but several hours utter Titltoii return ed, rodo through the lire, ran I hem oil, kicked and stamped tho lileltaa body of his victim, put on aud wore his hat for a while, looked through the papers in his pocket and then loft. Tho re mains wore taken charge of by Deputy John Taylor, but owing to a delay in gelling a coffin were not brought home for burial until Saturday. They pre sented a revolting spectacle, the face showing plainly tin marks of the mur- L'rer's boot heel and spurs inflicted .fler he had been dead for Honrs. The interment took place in a grave yard some miles south of here where other members of the fainilv ari laid, .leas W. Elliott was probably forty years of ajre, a Cherokee, an I hud been given a fair education. He hue practiced law more or less for ten yearn in the Cher okee courts, and a!i i in the United Stales court since its eslabliahmeut in this country. He leaves a wife and a family of small cliildicii in this city, and a large number of oilier lelatives throughout tho nation. Tnlton is a Cherokee but little mme than twenty years of age, who has practically brought himself up, as Ihe term is used. Of late he has been employed by Jim Daugherty as a cow hand at the ranch near C 'toosa. Olluterg were at once started In piitMiit of him and it is not likely ho can long elude them. The tact th.1t hU victim was an oflicer of the Indian Territory court would, il was at lirrl Ktipposcl, m.tko the min er a United States cane and !U the jurisdiction with the court at Ft.

Dynamite Used to Dislodsro Him Arch Wolf Also Perishes. This noted desperado, after defying the United Stales and Cherokee au thorities for a half dmten years, neatly, as killed by the Ft. Smith deputy marshals last Thursdav at his home fourteen miles from luhlequah. The flicer. sixteen in number, sin rounded the house, w liii:h was almost a fort, ithou't attracting attention, dining the previous night. About daylight the door opened and Arch Wolfe, a comrade of Christie's, emerged and started for the spring near by. He as ordered lo surrender, but refusing was liri-l on ami teil, tint quickly jumped up and ran into the house, from which by this time a shower of ad began to be poured. Tho women folks were soon sent out of the house, for surety, and the battle begun. As seemed impossible to dislodge the outlaws by other means the use of dy namite was resorted lo with the re sult of blow ing down part of the house and setting it on fire. Christie, who had been secreted underneath the Hour crawled out and started to run, firing as he went. A Volley from the otlicera' weapons silenced bim forever and it is easy lo believe that a sense of relief as felt by all. Chailes ll.tre, the third one of the desperadoes who were quartered in the house, attempted to escape, badly burned, but was captur ed and held on Ihe charge of assault ing United Slate officers. The re mains of Wolle, the man first wounded, were burned up in the cabin, it is re ported. The captured prisoner and the body of Christie were convoyed to ort Smith. That the usual reward f l-V.IO for the capture of a murderer of an officer will be paid by the govern ment is doubted, as it ia specified that the person shall be taken alive. puring Chief BuMiyhead's second rm Ned Christie was one of the ex tei ecutive councilors. Hi downfall is generally attributed to a mistake, though by no means au excusable one. Having a grudge against another Cher okee named Mauus, he stationed himself one night at the brook in the north part of Tahlequah , near where the new seminary now stands, expect ing bis victim would pass by there. Shortly after Deputy Marshal Dan Ma aples started to cross tne stream on foot lo,', and being aout the size of Manns, Christie mistook bim for the latter and fired, killing hi in on the pot. Kei-rated effort shave been made tn rapture Christie, tut be has fought the oflieera oil in every casd until the last. One of the first attempts ma le to effect the outlaw's arrest was by L. l Isbell, city marshal of Vinita, in filth he f.ceived a shot in tbe shoulJcr.crippling him for life. Scarce ly a month aga a raid was male by the officers in abich tao e wounded, from the tfleda of which one Las since died. Christie was aomelbing under fifty years of sge, a full blood Chero kee and probably the most dangerous man the ration hs bad within its borders for a camber of years.
