the window of the Friend house last
Sunday night and fired a charge from
a shot gun at the young couple as
they sat 011 a sofa. Police and detectives
have been working on the case

window was seen by the couple just
before the shots were fired according
to Sterling. Miss Friend was unconscious

BURNING WHEAT
Radcriff Case Appears To
Have Grown Out of Old
Kow.
With a crowded court room the trial
at J. it. Hudclill before Justice Musgrove
began at 2 o'clock this afternoon
but at press time the stat| had failed to
present any evidence sufficient to establish
the guilt of the accused.
J. K. Itadcliffe is a farmer living near
Montana and as he had had some trouble
with a neighbor, J. C. Keyser, some
time ago, suspicion fell upon him when
soms wheat belonging to Keyser was
buroed recently and he was arrested
charged with having started the conflagration.
John C. Keyser was tho first witness
for the state and he told of the quarrel
or trouble between himself and the defenuant
which had caused suspicion
to fall upon the latter. When the wheat
was just beginning to come through
the ground, according to his story, a
dog belonging to Kadcliff entered the
wheal field repeatedly and did considerable
damage to the tender young
ahniitR After reDeated warnings to
Radcliff to keep bis animal out of the
field, Keyser at last shot the dog.
This aroused the anger of RadcllS
who when he met Keyser protested at
i he unfairness of the deed and said tnat
he "could go up there and burn the
crop any night If he wanted to" ana
that he'd "get even."
None of the witnesses were able to
say that any more definite threats had
been made and the two men had been
entirely amiable towards each other
since. The trail which the blood hounds
followed led away from the home of
the defendant and no evidence was presented
early this afternoon to support
the charge against him.

H. D. McDougal, three young men
from the Seat elds were yesterday
evening dlimlesed when at a special
session of police court they were
charged with disturbing public worship
A large crowd assembled in
the court room to hear the trial,
which was somewhat lengthy. There
were ten wtlnesses In the case.
The evidence lor the defendants
and lor the city was well balanced.
The witnesses brought out the fact
that the religious worship was disturbed
was a meeting of spiritualists
assembled to talk with the spirit
world. The young men claimed that
they did not mako enough nolso to
disturb the worshipers and bad several
witnesses to testify to this fact.
On the other hand several witnesses
testified that the spiritualists were
Dften so loud that they had on several
occasions greatly annoyed their
neighbors. It was brought out by two
witnesses that they had seen a flash
of a gun and heard shots flfed on iwo
occasions from the upper porch of the
spiritualist meeting at children on
State street.
Among the witnesses in the case
were D. H. Whitner, Assistant Chief

sorrowfulness that was felt by these
people made up for the lack la numbers.
Fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers
and sweethearts hastened to the
camp when they learned that the boys
were soon to depart and they remained
there until the troops were escorted
from the camp by the Regimental hand.
Company C is one of the finest units
of the Regiment and Is perhaps the
best fitted to carry on the work ol putting
tbo camp in condition before the
arrival of the rest of the troops. They
left the local camp one hundred and
forty strong, three men having remained
behind as cooks for the troops that
are remaining here and two men having
been detaiued because or illness.
The boys made a fine appearance as
they marrched to the station and looked
as though they will have little difficulty
in combating the hardships thai
will be thrust upon them 'ere long.
it is uncertain at this time when the
remainder of the regiment will break
camp and entrain for the southern city.
However, it is pretty certain that the
next move will involve the entire regiment.
it is expected that the advanco
company wfll have things at the southeru
camp in pretty good condition In
aboui a week and that the' remaining
uni-s of the regiment will be able to
leave here some day next week. The
train which will transport Company C
to the cotton fields of Mississippi was
madb up of four passenger coaches, a
box car, where the cooking will be
done, and a baggage car in which the
supplies of the company have been
packed.
