Death of Dr. Thompson.
A gloom was cast over this city last
night by the announcement of the
death of Dr.S. J. Thompson, which oc

A SHOCKING MUttDER
Jena W. Elliott of This City The
Victim.
Word was leceived early last Friday
ruing that Jena W. 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. Smith,
but Judge Parker concludes diffeteutly
and refuses lo act on the premiees. It
was reported that Tallon had his
horse shod at Sapttlpa Satuiday ami
left word lot his ptiisueis that he was
going west .
Later. An t iroi.eous icpoi t was in
circulation hi re yesterday to Ihe elici t
that 1'alt in had killed John Beard,
deputy sherill. It arose fi am the inis
reudii)g of a telegtiuii.
NED CHRISTIE KILLED.
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.
