THE PAUtS VALtEY COURT.
The Powell Murder Case, Ada Mayor.
, alty Matter and Other Cases.
Pauls Valley, I. T.. Dec. ".Monday
morning the Powell murder case was
resumed and Wednesday at noon ar
guments were presented by Attorney
Wm. D. Johnson, for the government,
followed by Attorneys Prulett and
Russell, for tho defense, the case was
closed by Wm. Ownby, who ppoke
ior about seven hours and the case
went to the Jury Wednesday about
3 o'clock. Friday afternoon the jury
came into the court room and stated
that they had failed to agree. The
judge sent them back for further con
sideration. The habeas corpus case of Otis
Weaver was called Friday morning
and the court refused to take any ac
tlon on It. as the defendant was not
in custody at the time the writ was
granted. The facts developed in till
case that he was tried -for carrying
a pistol and before a Mr. Drury at Ada
and that Drury was not the mayor
legally elected, but that the mayor had
resigned, and Drury was elected by
the council, and upon that election
bad a certificate issued to himself, by
the clerk of the United States court
at this place. It seems that Weaver
was also mistaken as to the law and
thought that when the mayor resigned
he ns rocordor became mayor. Tho
DittrJct attornoy will file an aftldavit
against Drury. for holding the offlce
as mayor of tho town of Ada, unlaw
fully. Tho case of "Will Haynos. charged
with larceny was tried oy a Jurv. and
they returned a verdict of not guilty.
This morning the dl6tric attorney
filed a notice In the Maijarljr""murdor
caso to set aside tho refusal of Judge
Thomas at the last term of the court
to transfer the case to Paris, Texas,
upon the ground that Maharty was
a c'.tlaen of the Chickasaw tribe of In
dians and under the existing l.i any
member of the tribe has a right to do
this, upon an affidavit being filed that
he is unable to get a fair trial here.
Judge Towncend set the order aside,
then Mr. Johnson wanted to contest
the motion, by making a showing that
the defendant was a Seminole freed
man but Judge Townsend sent the
case to Paris. The gorernmcnt aved
an oxceptioa to this ruling and asked
for sixty days to prepare a transcript
aad file same in the Court of Appeals
of the Indian Teritory.
