Clllthrlr, O. T.. Feb. 17.-(KpocIa1 ) Tho
most disastrous railway wreck In the
history of Oklahoma or Indian Terri
tories occurred at midnight last night

four miles south of this city. I'nclneer
ITplcby, of the north bound Texas live

pass tho stoiilh bound passenger nt
Seward, eight miles south of this city,
but Instead of stopping there, his train
thundered thioiigh that village and on
nt the rate of forty miles an hour, and
ns n result of this disobedience he now
lies cold In death, one follow trainman Is
dying and half n dozen suffering from
Ferlous Injuries, a seoto of other people
suffering, mom or less, two locomotives
nnd much of two trains Ho In a con
glomerate mass upon the track nnd tho
railway company has suffered a llnnn
clnl loss of fully $10,000. Three miles
north of Seward thnt train rushed
nround n cuive In n deep cut anil
dashed Into tho engine of the south
bound passenger with nil awful crash
thnt was followed with a confusion nnd
a result still more awful.
This deep cut lins been known ns
"Dead Man's Gulch" since the opening
of the territory, and that on last night
It was true to Its name, tho following
list bears mute witness:

Washington, Feb, 17. (Special.) Captain
Keyser, a banker nt Stillwater, O. T., has
addressed an Important letter to the attor
ney general. Ilu sajs that nearly a year
ago he purchased from deputy marshals
In the Oklahoma country soma voucher
for the (list quarter of last venr. So far
ho has not been able to secure pnvment
on the same. He wants to know why ho Is
unable to get the money on thestj claims,
ns ho understands the department Is 111 the
habit of sending money to tho United
States marshal promptly at the (.lid of each
quarter to pay on claims of this sort. Ho
called nt the olllca of tho United States
marshal of Oklahoma u number of times,
had prt seated the claims, but l had been
represented that tho money to cover tho
same hud not been received from the gov
ernment. Ho wants to knowvlf this Is the
fact. He appears to have come doubts
about Its being strictly correct. As It is
a proper matter of Inquiry, It Is supposed
there will be little delay In furnishing the
Information desired.

a third story back room. It Is sold that
Miss Yorke, whose homo Is In New York

but she returned to the hotel at about l",
o'clock this evening nnd remained there.
About 9 o'clock Gentry walked Into
the hotel olllce nnd nsked lo be shown
to Miss Yorko's room, lielng unknown
to tho attaches ot tho house, he was
told to wait a few moments. A message
w.ih then sent to tho gill's room, but

Into the hallway and ascended by means

Miss Yotke and Miss l,ld,i Clarke, a

Gentry opened the door nnd walked In
unannounced. Miss Yorke manifested
sonio suiprlse nt seeing him and Intro
duced him to .Miss Clntke. After hnstily
acknowledging the Introduction, Miss
Clarke sas.s Gentry tinned to Miss
Yorke nnd In an angry tone demanded:
"Why didn't you meet mo to-day?"
Hefote the girl could ansvver.ho whipped
a revolver from his pocket and fired
three shots ut her, each bullet tnklng
eflect, one over the tight eye, one in tho
center of the fotehead nnd the thlid
close to the left temple. Gentry Immedi
ately rushed from the room nnd noth

The supposition Is that he ran along the
hallway and descended by means of the lire
escape at the back ot the house, making
good his escape by one of the numerous
