The most seriously injured is a negro named Brady, who was shot through the bowels, and is reported to have ten ugly perforations in his intestines, one wound being I 1-2 inches in length. Paul Combs was shot in the right breast and a woman called “Black Bess” was shot in the right shoulder.  From the best information obtainable by the News reporter the trouble was started by Brady, who went into the house where Combs was at Die time and began a determined effort to .start something. He is said to ha\e supplemented a heated harangue by snapping his pistol four tim ‘s at Combs, who was also reach* itig tor his pistol. Brady's gun finally hied. whereupon both he and Combs beat it out ut the house through different doors. The row was renewed outside, and in the promiscuous shooting that followed both negroes were shot. “Black Bess.” who is thought to have been the cause ol the ill feeling between the two men, was shot by one of the participants.  Brady’ was still alive at noon today, but was considered in a critical condition. The wound of Combs is not a dangerous one. the bullet striking a rib and ranging round ii ndei his shoulder. The injury receded by “Black Bess" is only a slight one.  All of which goes to prove that “the course of true love did ne’er run smooth."  Jailed for Drunkenness.

It is rumored about political circles that there will be a candidate in the field supported by Governor Robertson and the state administration.    The fact    that the    governor  has called the election for a date tallier than had been generally expected lends color to this rumor. The organization w’ould have a much better advantage in a short campaign than in one of greater length. There is a rumor current that Mayor Walton of Oklahoma City may be the    choice of the    statehouse    to make    the race.  accompany him anywhere, but has insisted that she remain at home, that he has instead of staying at home with this plaintiff and children at night and at other times too numerous to mention for company sought the company of other women and has paid much more attention to other women than to this plaintiff."  Plaintiff alleges that practically she has been abandoned for a year and that defendant has never provided or attempted to provide for her. but has spent his money foolishly and on others. That two childre.! have been born to them, Finley Walton, aged two years, and Ardrey May Wa I ton, three months old.  PJaintiff further alleged that defendant is a full blood Chickasaw’ I Indian, owning 13ft acres of land in .Stephens county that pays him about $500.00 a year, and IOO acres in Pontotoc County that pays him about $150.00 a year. He now has about 400 bundles of sheaf oats and 30 bushels of corn. That he has never provided any furniture or household goods.
