Graduates of the A. & M. College. Eight of the graduating class of the Agricultural & Mechanical college at Stillwater were honored by the faculty with the degree of Bachelor of Science, namely: N. P. Bullock, O. R. Donart, Minnie A. Dysarr, F. M Greiner, A. F. Reynolds, Cora Mittimore, A. E. Myers and C. F. Regnier.
The Benson prizes of $30 and $20 cash were secured by F. M. Greiner, of Edmond, and N. P. Bellock, of Stillwater, for the highest rank in the work of the senior year. The work of the college for the year just closed was of the highest and most satisfactory order and places the institution - the pride of Oklahoma- to the front rank among the successful educational institutions of the great southwest.
With the increased facilities and the addition of the fine library building which will be completed in time for the autumn term, the college will enter upon another year under the most promising auspices.
JENNINGS IS DEAD. Policeman Jeff Taylor's Aim True-Victim died at 10 O'clock Today.
Bishop Jennings, the negro arrested yesterday morning by Policeman Jeff Taylor, charged with theft, and who knocked Taylor down twice before the officer used his gun, is dead. He died at 10 o"clock this morning at the Silver Moon restaurant, which is located on Harrison avenue in the rear of Reaves' theater.
Mr. J. M. Dilts, of Blackwell, who was a guest at the Cottage house, and who was robbed of a $5 bill, identified the bill found on the person of Jennings, which was returned to him.
The relatives of Jennings could not be located, and he will be buried today at the expense of the city. Coroner Arnett, when notified of Jennings' death, decided that an inquest was unnecessary.
Since the death of Jennings this morning a gang of worthless negroes have been uttering dire threats against Policeman Taylor, who in shooting Jennings only did hid duty. The officers should see that the negros making incendiary remarks are suppressed.
L. F. Laverty was arrested this week by stock marshal Reed and fined $5 for allowing his horse to run loose.
Bill Martin, who was recently shot while resisting arrest, has sufficiently recovered to be removed to the county jail.
Mr. and Mrs. Joe Miller, of Perry, are in the city. Mr. Miller was jailer at the federal jail here during the term of E. D. Nix as United States marshal. He is now in the cattle business.
In the capture of the Scroggins brothers by Deputy Sheriff Houston and posse north of Stillwater, yesterday, the smaller brother took to a tree and climbed it, while the larger one plunged into a swollen stream, into which he threw Ed Laws pistol when the buckshot began to perforate his corporeal system.
Goldy Filson and Charles McAdams, who are charged with shooting Mr. Underwood, near Choctaw, are still eluding the officers. The last heard of them they were both riding the same horse and going in the direction of Lincoln county. The Lincoln county officers have been notified and are on the alert for them.
