DOCTOR Uses a Gun With Fatal Effect at Okmulgee, Ind. Ter.
Muskogee. During a general shooting scrap at Okmulgee last night, Dr. E. T. Sensley shot and killed Will Shields. Great excitement prevails and deputy marshals have gone to the scene.
Four little orphan children of Mr. Myers, living opposite Oklahoma City, have been sent to the orphans' home in that city.
The killing of Charles A. Ford by Wm. Hale and Abe Sensley, in Day county, is the second homicide that has taken place in that county. The defendants were each held to the grand jury in the sum of $5,000.
GAVE THEM THE SLIP. Oklahoma City.

Last night Sheriff Copeland received a telegram that Coldy Filson and Charles McAdams had been surrounded in the Hancock pasture, nine miles northeast of Choctaw, in the Kickapoo country. Accompanied by Houck and Brown, he went out to the place indicated, arriving there about 9 o'clock. A large crowd was there but the fugitives had cut the wire fences in several places and given them the slip.
The two men were last seen south of Luther, both riding the same horse. Deputies Armstrong and Butler took the trail passing through Luther late last night. The officials of Lincoln county have been notified and the county clerk there being the brother of Judge Underwood, a great effort will be made to intercept the fugitives.
Deputy Marshal Shockey came in last night from Pawnee with Cack Runnells in custody, charged with selling liquor.
Yesterday in police court Nick Wilber was fined $10 for trespassing. He was found in a box car. He went to jail. O. G. Hicks was fined $8 for appearing on the streets in a drunken condition. He went to jail.
M. Golden, at one time a prominent citizen of Guthrie, who aspired to the office of Indian agent and went to Washington to secure the place, and after failure to land, suddenly disappeared, is clerking in a jewelry store at San Francisco.
