James T. Howie, is also under arrest changed with complicity. Their preliminary hearing wll! be held at Lawton as soon as the witnesses can be got. Owing to McKnight being an inland town without railroad or telegraph connec tions, details ot the homicide are dif ficult to get. Oolong Howie says he resided formerly at Dadeville. Ala., anj tells the foMowin stoty of the affair, claiming self-defense: The trouble originated over certain certificates of town lots which the- firm of Latham. Howie & Childers had in their porsession. Messrs. Latham and Chiklers were out of town at the time of the shooting and Colonel Howie was asked by Goree that his certificate be given him. The colonel asked that time be given: that the book3 could be gone over and a correct certificate given. Some days before Goree gave notice -to Colonel Howie that he must leave town In three days or he would j klil him. Saturday morning they met vj$aiu in iiic uime ui in- diLniiigiii Leader.

DROUTH A GOD-SEND It was Very Profitable to St. Louis Jobbers They Did the Biggest Summer Busi ness in Their History The Farm ers Feared That They Were Go ing to Starve to Death. 'St. Louis Mo., Sept. 21. The drouth has brought to the St. Louis grocery jobbers the largest July and August business known In the history of the oldest house. New channels of trade were opened by the drouth, which caused the farmers In the St. Louis trade territory to believe they would have nothing to eat during the coming fall and winter, and the shipments of canned goods from this market have been enormous and unprecedented. "The grocery 'men have caught "em comin' and goin'," remarked a rallroai man In speaking of the trade in canned goods. Everything in the line of pro duce, practically. Is canned nowada-s. but the demand has been largely for such sla-ples as tomatoes, peas and beuns and other vegetables. , LITTLE SUGAR SOLD. July and August are usually the lar gest sugar months In the year. .Sugar is sold In immense quantities for u?e in canning fruits and vegetables, but this year there was comparatively Utile sugar sold during those months. To a querry received by one local firm from an official of the sugar combine: "Why are you not selling more sugar?" the reply was sent: "We have, no use for sugar except for lemonade and mlxd drinks." There was no fruit to can: that Is. comparatively speaking. Early small fruits turned out fairly well, but the July and August 'gar demand was extremely light. Instead of sugar the grocers were shipping canned goods. Paid a member of the Adam Roth Gr cer company: "Orders began pourl-n: In alone the first week In July for canned goods and continued to in create as the results and extent of the droutn became known." I MADE THINGS LIVELY. 'September, October and November are usually the big months in the gro cery business, nut the drouth had the effect of making very lively -months out of ordinarily dull ones. Of course. the big sugar trade was absent, but the canned goods trade more than made up for it. "There was not only a demand Tor canned Roods, but for eerea's and ei eal products as well. The opinion teemed to prevail that there would bean immense demand for all kinds of these classes, and the small jobbers an! re tailers were anxious to nut In a supply before the prices advanced. The ear liest 'buyers succeeded; In doing this, but prices rose during August and r' still up. with no prospect of receding. CAN PRICES ADVANCED. Along with this condition . In the canned goods market comes the an nouncement that the tin can combine has advanced its prk-es on cans to al most a prohibitory figure. One of the largest hardware houses in St. Louis and in the west has not handled a gross of tin cans thlB season: whereas, be fore, it has handled five to six carloads. There Is one consolation for theie people, however. There Is very little use for the cans this year. The St. Louis grocery trade does not extend) as far as do the other lines oT trade. It embraces Missouri, southern Illinois, all Arkansas, eastern Kansas. Tennessee and a portion of Kentucky. That Is. the bulk of trade comes from this territory, though some trade Is ha.l with more remote states. BASE BALL FIELD Where Games Were Won and Lost Yesterday.

KASSACBED BT INDIANS Phoenix Clerks Scalped and rkinned on the Diamond Quite a number of Indian braves from the government school north of town, broke loose from restraint yes terday afternoon and overtaking a paity of eight or ten white boys at Phoenix park, massacred the whole party and scalping them brought their lop pieces DacK to town, ine wnite boys. who are well known clfrks in the Phoenix stores, came in later and sail, while their heads were a little sore thf lr scalps would grow out again and they held no enmity against the red skins, for they had dared them to a game ot boseball and had got the worst of it, the score being 18 to 5, with six innings played. As a matter of fact, it was the first i i, i . . time the clerks had -ever been in an Indian fight, ancb they were rattltd when the first war-whoop went up. Mosr of them were unnerved and the reeult was that the natives scored 10 tallies the first inning, while only one wfil'.s nui" r--i'1 sufficient presence of mind ta run the bases. ' Six more warriors walked over home white lads did pretty well to put three! of them out of business without mak- in a mark to- their own credit. By this time the pale faces had regained their presence of mind and laid out a plan of campaign. In the third inning they knocked out every brave that showed his head, but the battle then waged ne:k and neck, for the red skins repaid them In kind. When the fourth was ushered in the tables were turned: the palefaces got three mar ks on the score card and but one tally went down to the credit of the natives. In the fifth the counter- jumpers got one man home and killed off every visible enemy. In the sixth I th? Indians used a little native strat egy and scord one. and the covers were all hammered' off the balls and both sides were out of ammunition, a white flag was sent up and Umpire Phillips rendered h'.s decision. IS to 6. The ohowln made was not so bad after the first inning, and. with piac- ttce the Clerks think they can fix the Reds. But they were buffaloed at first and lost the game before It had fairly started. In Justice to the Clerks, how ever. K, should be said that they were short three of their best players. They feel that the game was a good one for them, though the score looks bad, ahd If they are given proper encouragement promise to not only lift the foretops off the Indian school lads before the sea eon Is over, but to take the starch out of a number of other aggregations that are trifling with the national game In these parts. A GAME TODAY. The Mansflelds and a picked team from the Phoenix fire department will cross bats at the park this afternoon. The Mansfields Is one of the younger teams of the city and la capable of playing good ball. The fire department is rather a large organization and among its members .are quite a num ber that handle the hickory and leather with careless familiarity, while. there ore others who may be called "has beens." but whose hands have not en tirely lost their cunning. It Is quite l!k!y that an interesting game win be played, and it Is a question which side will have the bert of It with the fans. PH0EJ.IX THE VICTOR Capital City Team Wins the First Game at Congress. Congress. Ariz.. Sept. 21. (Special.) The ball game between the Phoenix and the Congress teams today was an- lnteresting one, the visitors winning by a score of 9 to 6. Both s'.des played good ball, as the scote indicates, but there were more errors than look well on paper, as four are charged up to Phoenix and eight to the home team. Ab Wormell was in the box for Phoenix- and Westcott for the Congress team. They tied fairly well in their woik. as each Btruck out twelve men.

New York, Sept. 21. It has been rt- ported from time to time that represen tatives of a proposed hat combine were at work in this city, and that the es tablishment of large manufactures would be begun In Newark and Orange. N. J. It was also said that several In terests in Danbury, Conn., would' be absorbed. Manufacturers of treadgear generally agree that such a combination wouli be quite the reverse of a huge success. The very fact that a hat possesses- a certain Individuality of the maker . one of th? strongest arguments brought forward by the opponents of such a combination. "Form an association of mis c-naracxer. sa.u one -n .1 at the action of J. C. Btubbs in appoint manufacturer today, "and you will nt , once kill that degree of skilled ,abor In C. H. Markham over him. Shepard and reduce the standard, until all hats would not only look alike but be alike. "WORKS OF ART." ' "The hats that sell best are tho.i which are striking in their styles and Individuality and are more than pro- duc ts of machinery: they are works of art.' The tastes of the consumer are regulated by the fashions, and if it were possible to amalgamate the ar tistic tastes of the hat wearing public then a combine will be possible, an.l not before." It was reported that an Important meeting of hat manufacturers and Job bers had been held at the Waldorf Astoria on a recent occasion to settle the question of whether a manu- j facturer can sell to the retail trade and contin-ie his business relations with th Jobbei-s. MEETING IS DENIED. , Careful investigation today failed to reveal any Information of such a Joint meeting. The largest hat manufac turers of this country. Stetson, Roe lofs, Knox and Dunlap, commonly known as the "Big Four," professed ut- i . i . 1 ' lrr c" J'1 " , cijm Din at. ion 01 me nailers nnerasis. I . M . denied emphatically that the firms mentioned were in way concerned in such arrangement. Robert A- Etiwer, the local manager for Henry H. Roelofs & company, sa'd: "If su?h a eor,-ibi-ition is to -be efected I am sure that I would be Informed of ,":lis record as the king of trotters. Cres cny meeting, and I know that the Roe-ecus d;feated the Abbr.t and won the "3 company "ot le a party to any arrangement such as Is suggested without in some way consulting wltn the other firms comprising the "Bis Four." "WILL SELL AS WE PLEASE." The resident manager of the John B. Stetson company plainly said: "This company has always sold to the retail trade and to the Jobbers and made no attempt to hide the fact. The Stet son company is one of the -pioneers i: this business and we-wlli sell as we please and to whom we please, and no combination can ever force us to change our policy. We have heard the rumors of a hat combine, out you may deny that we will ever become a party to it. If such an organization is really In process of formation, it has btn promulgated by some of the smaller and unimportant concerns who havc.no sin-cere intentions of promoting a com bination, but are using the report as a card to advertise their own gooda." Officials of Dunlap & company and Edward M. Knox were seen end they likewise denied that there was any truth :n the rumor of such a combine. Neither had they attended any meetins at the Waldorf-Astoria to discuss the interests between the Jobbers and the retail trade.
