The Guthrie Daily Leader

Architect Foucart has completed plans for the new Masonic Temple.
Sure Enough Villain.
Dr. Kimberly, who some time ago ran away with the divorced wife of Monroe Howland and married her before she was legally entitled to marry again under the statutes of this territory, has deserted his victim and left her penniless and in want in Cleveland Ohio.
Kimberly is evidently a scoundrel of the first water.
Mr. Howland, upon learning of the condition in which his divorced wife and victim was left, sent her transportation to come back here, and while he will have nothing more to do with her, says he will provide a home for her and see that she is taken care of.
Kimberly's little children whome he basely deserted are being looked after, two of them having been provided with homes, leaving a little boy four or five years old yet to be provided for.
The postmaster of Tecumseh, Clem White, has been arrested, charged with perjury, and on his preliminary examination was held to the grand jury in the sum of $5,000, which he has not yet been able to furnish.
Mrs. J. H. Stryker, some years ago well known in Guthrie as a resident of the place, died in Cleveland, Ohio, June 18th. Her son, S. J. Duffield, by her first husband, still lives in Guthrie.
The Leader congratulates Earl C. Heilman, son of our townsman, Phillip Heilman, on his appointment as alternate to the naval academy at Annapolis, who had the recommendation of Hon. D. T. Flynn.
Probate Judge Foster yesterday issued a marriage license to Columbus Reef and Georgettie Milton, both of Crescent City.
Private Fank Prouty, who deserted the Texas Immunes during the seige of Tampa, has been located n this city. Prouty has been in hiding waiting for a reward to be offered for his apprehension. He expects to apprehend himself and cop the reward.
VESSEL That sails on Land - A curious Invention of Oklahomans.
The Howard brothers, of Funton, Okla, have invented a vehicle which they ride and which is propelled by means of sails. These brothers rode to Beaver, twenty miles distant, in the new carriage. The machine is a curiously constructed thing, having four wheels, and is fitted with sails and masts on the principle of a sailing vessel, except that it has wheels and runs on land instead of in water.
It was simply driven by the wind all the way from Fulton. It is reported to have made good speed on the trip and at times to have travelled at the rate of fifteen miles an hour.
Dan Widmer Has Accepted.
Although it has been known for some time that ex city attorney Dan Widmer has been tendered the appointment of territorial game warden by the governor, it was not until yesterday that he finally signified his willingness to accept the appointment. The appointment carries no salary with it, but Dan's love of the chase and his desire to protect the game induced him to accept. Sportsmen throughout the territory may congratulate themselves on having a game warden who will enforce the law without fer or favor, and if they will stand together in strengthening the hands of Mr. Widmer, game will be protected and violators of the law punished.
Chicken Thieves Warned.
Chicken thieves have besome a nuisance in the vicinity of Noble avenue, in west Guthrie.
The parties are known andare being watched. If this thing is kept up the thieves will meet their deserts in the shape of a double barreled shotgun or a term in the penitentiary.
For white people to indulge in this kind of thieving when the prefession is supposed to belong to others, a shot gun should be kept ready for them.
A Wicked Lothario.
Geo. L. Clark, the festive sewing machine agent who divides his time and his affections between this city and Perry, is growing in notoriety and may get himself into such a position as will give him time to cool off.
Judge Foser, on the complaint of Clark's wife, who resides in this city, issued a warrant for Clark's arrest which charges him with all sorts of connubial wickedness with a Perry woman.
Will Be Taken To Missouri.
Governor Barnes signed the warrant for the extradition of Alexander Jester, now under arrest at Shawnee on a charge of murder, yesterday afternoon between four and five o'clock, and sheriff Melson, of Mexico, Mo., who has been here several days, went to Shawnee on last night's train to get his man.
The habeas corpus proceedings have been commence to prevent the extradition it is quite likely that a strong fight will be made to prevent it.
Dr. J. A. Hooe, of Perry, who was in the fedral jail charged with selling whiskey to Indians, was released yesterday on bond.
