Brady. Indicted for Fulton's Murder Caught and Jailed. Enid, May 17. This afternoon Sheriff Potter and Deputy Cannon, quietly entered the city, having in custody John Brady, whome it will be remembered is charged with the murder of Al C. Fulton, whose body was found in a straw stack a few miles east of this city December 11th last. The sheriff send postal cards containing the description of Brady all over the country, but no clue to his whereabouts could be obtained. By some means or other, kown only to the sheriff, he was discovered at the homeof Mrs. Wixon, about twelve miles northwest of Medford, having been there since last Thrsday. The arrest was made about daylight Sunday morning. Brady made no resistance, feighing innocence and saying that he had been out in Colorado, and did not know thathe was accused of the killing until informed by Mrs. Wixson. The evidence against Brady as given to the coroner's jury is very damaging.
Chas Carr was drowned in the Arkansas river at Ralston, O. T., while sining.
A. C. Lipscomb, a traveling salesman, was found dead near a railroad track at Perry, OK. Cause unknown.
In an interview with the Daily Oklahoman the man Prudens, now confined in jail in Oklahoma City for the shooting of Miss. Arnold and to save him from anticipated mob violence at the hands of Miss Arnold's friends, makes the remarkable statement that he read the writ of attachment to the lady over the barrell of his gun "as the law directed him." According to the Oklahoman, Prudens used this language: "I demand the goods and read the writ of attachment over the barrel of my gun, as the law says I must." Where Prudens found such a law is a puzzle past finding out. The wholeinterview from first to last shows the brutal instincts of the man. Even the untoutored savage would shrink from gloating over the exploit of having attempted to intimidate a woman over the "barrel of a gun."
Mayor Berkley has appointed A. R. Bates, Jr., assistant engineer at the water works pumping station at $30 per month.
