It M Calhoun nn aged resident of
tlio Floris neighborhood was serious
ly Injured nbout noon Monday of thla
week, when ho viib struck by an auto
mobllo driven by II. It, Crossloy a
salesman residing In Oklahoma City,
rull particular nro not mailable at
thla timo but tho following facts seem
well Betabli3hed. Tho victim was
sirucic rrom behind while walking
along tho main traveled part of a
public highway, was dt figged nbout
fifteen feet from tho point whero ho
was struck, which seems to Indlcato
a high lato of speed. Tho machlno
drlvon by Crossley carried no signal,
at least In working order. Crossloy
after assisting to carry tho Injured
man to his homo Immediately loft on
tho pretext of summoning a physician
but all tfforta slnco havo failed to lo
cate him. While we don't wish to ac
cuse or consor any man until In full
possession of nil facto, tho case lookB
mighty black for Mr. Crossley it in
hard to understand what tho clrcum-
stanco would be that would excuse a
driver In striking a pedestrian In the
center or tho road in broad davllght
but even If that could bo explained
there Is. to our mind, no explanation
that will sdtldfy the lnwn of our state,
for his conduct In immediately ab-
iu:avi;h hkiiald si:vi-:x
senting and apparently
hlmscir. At present every Available
effort Is being mado to apprehend
tho teckles3 driver and we hope soon
10 no am to leport his arrest and ar
This is tho second serious nccldont
caused In our vicinity recently both
due. doubtless to failure to comply
with tho law. Tho practice of driv
ing nt nleht without lights and at all
times without a warning signal of
any Kinu is ucroming common In our
locality and should be stopped at
nnco. Tin assessment of a fow penal
tics to violators of these ro"ulations
would Wvp a wliolesomo effect upon
the conduct of tho careless motorist
and perhaps prevent tho sad misfor
tunes which wo aro compelled to
chronicle fiom ltmo to time.

Tho nttltude of tho Democratic '

tho citizens of n stato as tho Demo
