I thought I would say a fow words to tbo public, as tbo boys have asked mo to, and bavo been troaling me so well of lato. I will give you n skelcb of my life. I will writo you a lontr piece ru it I will be the lat. I am goinc nwav on a visit about tbo Inst of tho Jiionth, and I gucssJ will be (rone j'evural years, but I hope to loTurn sooner than 1 expoct. It looks to me liko the only friend I bavo got to look to is the Old Man in heav en. They say bo provides, nnd it may bo so, if wo only trust in him. It seems to mo that Ho is tho only one I have to look to. When I ;wns on the outside I bad plenty of incnus inai i nau Known lorvcars. fbdtll joenis now that 1 haven't a friend in tho world. I have somo relatives that aro pretty well fixed, but I haven't receivod as much ns a letter from thorn. j penr rpaders, jt looks to mo liko when a man is put behind thpso tyars that everybody turns bis back on him, even his own people go back on him. Of course, I bavo some good friends who will help mo nl they can, A man Jon'i know what (rouble is until bo has forty-fivo years bunging over his head f I don't blame myself for it at nil Of course I have Jone wrong, but if my people bad taken me after my parerits died and raised; me up right 1 might been a differ ent man. It is tho way a hoy is raised. If lie is taught to guard against all that is evil he will do so, if not lie will probably be like the rest of u. Fathers and mothers d.o pot know what thoy are raising their children ior. Thoy moy Hiink thoy do; but, like my mother, sbo thought eho &4 ralsjngus up right, and she was, but she didn't livo to toach us just when wo needed the most atten tion. I know it was not her fault. It was tho way wo grew up to men taking aftcr'our peoplo. My father was a southern man. Uo was also in the army and fought on tho northern side. My mother was a quarter breed Chero kee woman, bbo was born and raised in tbo territory. My moth er wan married twice. Her first husband was named Mat Morton. He, was sister's father, and alter bis death mother married Jamos Cook. On December 19,1873,1 was born, on Grand river, four miles north of Fort Gibson. After I was bora father ?old out and moved five miles up tho river on tho oth er side, and op October 1G, 1877, brother Jim was born and. shqrtly after Jim was born, six or seven months, father died. I don't re membpr much about him only what piother and other people bavo told me. After father's death mother became dissatisfied and rented out the place and eold near ly all tho stock and moved to Ar kansas, somo place near Fort Smith, but I don't remember just where. We stayed in Arkansas some timo and moved bao'k to our place. Little did I think then that wo would be hurled about the rest of our lives. We went back to the dear old place and lived some timo makinc our living tho best we could, only four in family, and once in a while a hired man. After awhilo mother married again. She married a half-bretd Cnerokeo. Everything went on well. Jim and I wcro big enough to run around and gq fusing and hunting, but wo never usea any guns, lor mother woulunt let us, and wo were too small. Many a 4 I havo went back to tho dear old place, whero brother Jim and I used to play when wo wero chil dren. It would break my heart to think of tho past when brother Jim and I would go fishing and in swimming. Then wo wero happy as larks. We novor dreamed of being caged up tho rest of our lives. It is bard to think a man will be cut down in tbo prime of life just because a boy has committod a crime, and then after he is caught, giyo hirn, n lifstiio scntvnrti, just because they have the power to do it. Eight or ten years would be long enough. If a man wouldn't change in that length of timo there is nothing on earth that would change him. But it is not that way. It seems that they want to destroy ono man's iifo tq set an example for others. That may look wise in the eyes of tho law, but it dont look that way to poor devils liko us. Awhilo after mo(hpr marrjod she eold out tho place and moved to Fort Gibson, whero she could send us boys to school, and wo went thoro about one year and moved back to Urand river and, Jhpn to Fqurteen Mile creok where mother died. Qur step-father had went through with ovorythingjthen ono of theni, a cousin, came and look us homo with him, and we stayed thero a good whilo. and finally ho took us to the Orphan asylum and Jolt us, and thoy wouldn't keen u thero because we didn't have an order from the Board of Education; so wo came thero and roamed from pillar to post until I became dissatisfied with tho Chorokoo country and wont tR the Creek country. I was foiutoen years old then, I worked for P. M. Sawyer. I worked thero until I made a very good corn hand. Then I went to tho F, S. ranch, whero I worked for two, ar. Ufling nothing but working th cattle, and with a nrettv. rowdy sot of boyn, and soon leftrn. t'd Iq ha a rowrjy mygelf, I had, learned everything about cow piinching then except drinking and grmbling. and that I soon caught on to, not having anyono to stop mo or tell mo I was doing wrong; instoad of that tho boys would insist on my playinsaying, "You will novor make a cow pitnoher until you know how to drink whisky and play cards." Finally I bought i pUto, nnd then I was a full fledged oow- puncher. J was mi to all tho ropes. I could ride, shoot, drink whisky, piny cards, and in tho epring '01 Iquittho F. 8. ranch. I became 'a famous cow. punch er. I was with a rowdior set of boys than I evor was with beforo, but they wero good jolly fellows. I blowcd in everything I made for whisky; then I went to sellini,' whisky and thought probably tho marshals had a Warrant for mo, and I left tho onuntry. I went to Mexico nnd stayed a liltlo whilo and camo back. By that timo I had learned to bo a liltlo toUgb and when I camo back I fqund spvoral of the boys that I used to know. Some of them wero living peaceably, and somo wero on the lookout, but my bptt friend, Jim Turner, was on tho dodgo, go I told Jim wgre going tq net in so far we couldn't turn back, and bo went to Texas, and I stoyod in the Territory. I was in love with a girl in that country.and was think ing of marrying and settling down, when I was arrested and hrqught here for selling whisky. I made up my mind to plead guilty and get out of it as easy a? I could.and settle down. I plead guilty and got off pretty light. I then went back up there and lived a quiet peaceable life. I was not Ijjfd well enough to inarry.so I thought I would WO.it tjlj I got better fixed, but I nevor did get fixed well enough to marry. I got in with the marshals and worked on the force a littlo while. I got in with deputy Sam Harris, the sorriest deputy on tho force, and worked with him about two months and never got but 87 out of him. That satisfied mo with tho marshal business. 1 want the people tq know what kind of a man Sam Harris is. 1 said a man; he is not a man; tie is moro like a granny woman than anything else; he hasn't any manhood about him When I went to scouting ho was the firt to Jqmp oi(taoil hunt me, but pr'ayed'io Uod bo would not find me, I quit old Sam then and made several trips with Bill Smith, and in tho winter of '94 brother Jim got in trouble and went down in the'Clierokee" country. When ho got in trouble there I went over and ho got clear, and we went back to ttie Creek country. We were followed by a posso of Cher okee Indians, whp accused us of stealing same horses, something wo never did. They come on over thero andWe found out thoy wore hunting us. We did not want them to get hold of us, so wo gavo them the dodge. The deputy marshals began to hunt for us also. There was a warrant for Jim hpre in Ft. Smith, I tried to keop out as long as I could nnd nover did anything until tho 12th of July. I told Jim that wo would not do anything moro than wo woio ac cused of, and when wn drew our money we would leave tho country. It was in Juno whon tho Cher okees commenced paying out the strip money, so Jim and I, in com pany with Cherokee Bill started tor Tablequah. Cherokee Bill was scouting from the Cherokoes him eplf. Tills was the first timo we ever met him. Wq went to the houso of Elfie Crittcndon, wroto an order for our money and she went and got it. We bad got our money and wa9 silting around talking to tho people. Sister and some old friendi? wpro there planning for tho iuture, and were getting ready to leave, when all of a sudden lie lmllets began to whiz, and of course wo had to fight for our lives. We fought our way out and got to our horses nnd rodo off; but not until that day did wo ever bother the United States. Assault with in teut to kill was the only charge thoy had against Jim; that is why I tiling 1 am not altogether to blame. I looked at it this way: Wo wore into it forever, and we would mako what we could out of it, and as the old savinc is. we just turned our dog loose; but, readers, 1 would givo anything in tho world if wo hadn't turned them loose, If I oould only call back eight months of my life I would be the happiest boy on earth, and lead a different life and try to bo an honest man. But you epg how h,ow it is; it ia too late to ory over spilt milk, and tho pooplo won't look at it that way. I do hopo and pray to God that I will get out ot It in seven or eight ypars and shqw tbo peoplo 1 can do right; oh, if they woujd look at it tbo way I do, and turn mo 1qo8q in seven or eight years. I would be tho happiest kid that over dwelt on this earth. I could live in some hope then, If 1 had ten years I could livo in hopo of got ting out, but as it is I havo no hope of evor regaining my liberty. I toll you, dear peo ple, you don't know how bad it makes me feel to think 1 will never broalh the pure air again. It makes mo feel like committing suicide when I get to thinking about it. I have never done so much; I wasn't a mean boy; nevor killed any ono; nover robbed a poor man of a dol lar. It is with nip jnat like it was with the James boys It is the Eieople that does tbo t ilkiug Now here is Charley Bobbins qcousod ot imbuing, hut he is not gulHy, and 1 know he isn't. You will -- . -l -t TH-, learn later who did tho robbing I do not liko to see a man suffer for what I havo done, and will not. So, my dear readors, I will bring this to a close, as I havo written nbout onough. I hopo what I havo said may chango tho feeling ol tho peoplo, and they will not think mo ns oau as uio napors have pictured mo to ho. Respectfully, Biu. Cook. THAT SOUTinTRST CITY AFFRAY. l.'iill Particulars of tho Lamentable Affair. The Southwest City Enterprise of Friday last contains tho follow, ing particulars of tho Jack Carey incident, mentioned in our last week's Cowskin Prairio lotter; A vory shocking affair took plaoe in Southwost City last Satur day ovening about 4:80 o'clock. Tho town had been full of people an day, busy transacting business, and thoy had just begun to depart for homo Jack Car-y who lives near Carey's Ferry on Grand river in the territory, was in town dur ing tho day and at the time men tioned above, ho with a compan ion, started, fqp home, in a wagon. When crossing rjoney creek at tho fool of Main street Carov. who is considered a tough chiiractor, fired nt8 prlstol several times and then drove on north. Constablo Chas. Franks itmncdiatolv secured a horsg and pursued Carey and overtook aim in the north part of town, but his horso becamo un manageable and cquld not stop him until bo had passed Carey somo uistanco. As soon as he could stop his horse, Franks dis mounted and Y8tte for Carey to come up. As soon as Carey saw mat i ranks intended to arrost htm he go out of tho wagon and with his Winchester in his hand walked behind and his companion also got out and walked and drove the team, Constablo r ranks demanded bis surrender but Carey refused and when opposito Franks, opened fire on the officer with his Winchester. Franks returned the compliment and several shots were exchanged.' f us trqeAjity Marshal Carlyle, 10 was on foot, came up and fired at Care', and Geo. Radcliff also fired several shots at him with a Winchester. In the fight Carey was wounded in o right thigh but succeeded in reaching his wag on and left town. As soon as tho excitement had Bubsidod some what it was learned that the four year old' son of Chas. Morgan, who lives about six miles northwest of town had been fatally shot in the fight. Of course this aroused the citizens and a posse started in pur suit of Carey, lie was overtaken about six miles from town and captured. He showed fight but beforo ho could get in his work ho was covered with guns and surren dered. He was found to havo an ugly wound in tho left thigh from which bo was bleeding. Ho was brought back to town and taken to the city hall where his wound was dressed and guarded until Monday. 'Squiro B.arnweH on Monday sum moned a jury and held an inquest over the remains of tho child. The jury after bearing the evidence re turned a verdict that tbo child was killed bv parlies unknown to tho Jury. Prosecuting Attornev Edge immediately swore out a warrant before Esouire Freeman. charging Carey with felonious as sault. Carey waived examination and gavo a bond of 81000 to await tho action of tho jjrand jury. Qn hjs way from town Caroy made everybody he met give the road and when passing John Hardy's be deliborately fired at a boy standing in the yard, the bullet striking a tree which the boy dodged behind, for protection. Mr, H,ardy camo to town Tuesday morning and swore out a warrant beforo Esquiro Freeman for Carey's arrest, charging him with an attempt to kill Ins boy. Carey also waived examination on this charge and gave a bond of 81000 for ins appearance at the August term of court. Ho was then im mediately arrested by tho city and fined 875 and costs for shooting on the streets The fino was paid, and Cnroj'n folks started homo with him Wednosday aftornoon. Tho killing of the child was ono oi tho most shocking affairs known in tho history of Southwest City. Mr. Morgan was just driving into town and had his little hoy and girl with hlroi and was about sixty yards distant from the shooting whonit began. His team became frightened at tho discharge of fire arms and with one arm Mr. Mor gan held ins, children from being thrown out of the wagon, and with tho othor tried lo control his team. While tho children were clasped in his arms a shot fired by some one, whose identity will probably nover bo known, entered the littlo boy 'a head an inch abovo the right eye and passed entirely through, com ing out at tho lowor edge of the parietal bono. As soon as Mr. Morgan could stop his team ho did so, and took the child into a Mr. Fly's houso, whero Drs. Smith and Nichols wero called, but tho child was beyond the aid of hu man skill. It was taken to the home of A. Oyler, in tho south, west part of town, where death re lieved his sufferings, at 8)30, about three hours after being shot. The romains wero luld until Monday, when viewed by the coroner's jury and then taken to the Fuirvtew comotery far burial. The entlra community sympathises with Mr. and Mrs, Morgan in the d and tragic manner in which tby wtre depilyedof thif )iTti son. o i"iJI mi Him i m Several mad don were killd last week at Eufaula,, The KlelcsiHtt J Sinco tho allotment of the Kick apoo reservation, much Interni it attached to that fertile rrgion and many inquiries are being matte by peopln in and out of Oklahoma, relative to its'size, soil and roar ces. It may bo said that the reser vation is Bimply a magnificent parit oi vcuu.uuu acres. Along tho western border, which stands to tho soiitheast, rune lha North Canadian river, on the east ern bank of which, in the Kicka Coo country, is a succession of rich ottom lands, with soil as black andiich as Illinois prarie loam. The contral and eastern portion? of the country aro high pntirta lands, interspersed with timber. Among tho wood aro boautifnl circular glades in which the tall, sweet bluo stem grasses wave in tho wind. In theso glades bunch es of Indian nonlos have browed until tlmy fairly roll in fat. Along tho eastern border whero it adjoins the Sao and Fox oountry, tho land is practically without timber, but is oxoellent farming land. In the northern part of the country is a region of blackjack oak, which never grows luxuriantly unless it has plenty of sand. The country is further described ns be ing rich in timber, and particular mention is made of the pecan, wild plum, hickory, olm, rod oak, pot oak, burr oak, whito oak and wal nut. It is also waterid. The southern central part is described as beingrichinsprings.,,Inoneplace, it is said, "thero aro a number of springs i-rUbin OOfeet of each oth er, giving furth enough water to supply a city of 60,000- people." While tho Kiowa and Oomanche reservation embraces a far larger area, tho wholo of it is not as valu able as the Kickapoo country, much of it, indeed, being fit for grazing qnly, Slander. Tho most contemptible of all God's creatures is the Bcandal monger, says the Springfield Dew Qorat, men and women who seize with vulture-like avidity upon the shadow of a compromising story, dress it in the garments of their own vulgar imaginations and start it upon the round of moral de bauchery. No ono is altogether safe from such assassins of reputa tion. They havo no ideas of the highcr.purer atmosphere breathed by the educated, the refined and the charitable. In their own realization of degradation they aim to raise Bolely by dragging others down. They prefer to hear evil through a knothole in a board fence than tho voice of refinement in church or parlor; they seek to destroy all tho stops that lead hu manity upward and onward to the realms of honor and purity which afford tho only real happineru in this life. Sad to say, many whom t' !b applies to diroctly will ex clilm "that's sol" and then pro ceed to tnnguo-lash some innocent person who has no chance for self defense. The Judge Delighted. Washington', April G. Judge Springer of the reorganized Indian Territory bench came unexpected ly to town last night. Ho bad procured a furlough for the pur pose of settling up some private affairs, but had conferences with both Secreturies.Smith and Olney. Ho expressed himself ns delight ed with his new field of labor. A roan shot and killed two brothers at Lowell Kansas, last week, and attempted to shoot their sister but his revolver was knocked from his hand in the at tempt. Tho body of ono ot the boys was thrown in Spring river and the other left on tbo bank.and was yet alivo when found, and who told whero the other boy was, but died in a short timo. The man who did tho shooting .fas in love with the girl, but tho boy objected to him seeing her. They accepted an invitation to accora- Cany him a squirrel huntitig.wbere e shot them.
