      Okmulgee, July 28 - One of the most desperate battles the marshals of Indian Territory every encountered took place last Saturday night when marshal Bennett and deputies went to a stomp dance for the purpose of arresting several fullbloods who were congregated there and were drinking and fighting.
       When Marshal Bennett and his posse got to the grounds they attempted to arrest the men as peaceable as possible, but it seems that the Indians did not want to be arrested and showed fight. The marshal and his posse went in and took nine men, who were armed and who showed a desperate fight. One fullblood was shot by Deputy Thompson. The Indian was in the act of shooting a marshal when Deputy Thompson fired.
       Those who were captured were brought to Okmulgee Sunday, and in the absence of a jail or calaboose were chained to trees in the capital yard. They are fullblook and members of the snake band.
       They were given a preliminary hearing by Commissioner Moore and bound over to the September grand jury.

      The Shawnee Red Fork Railway & Coal Company has been purchased by the Rock Island management. The deal was consummated late Saturday ngiht, the consideration being about $25,000. The assets sold consist of a charter, franchise, right-of-way and leasses on about 10,000 acres of mineral land. The line is ninety miles long, extending from Shawnee O.T., and its terminus if Red Fork, I.T. The negotiations on the part of the Rock Island was conducted by F C Mason, of Des Moines, attorney,
Page 7, column 2
 and J A Stewart, of Kansas City, general Southwestern, passenger agent of the Rock Island route. The papers have been signed and delivered. The line will be completed at once from Shawnee to Red Fork. - Red Fork Derrick.

      Another bloody quarrel such as frequently occur in the Creek National happened not far from Stroud on Monday. It seems that the parties who participated in the affray had gotten into a dispute over a lease, and when words were no longer an adequate medium they resorted to shooting irons in order to lend emphasis to the argument.
       The men who thus sought to add a little excitement to the dull season and play "Wild West" were Guthrie and Hicks. In some way Hicks had gained possession of a lease that Guthrie wanted. On Monday Guthrie met Hicks and in very forcible and convincing language made known his demand. Hicks replied in the same manner, and Guthrie, determined to go his opponent one better, drew his revolver and proceeded to make a target of Hicks. The latter gentlemen then gave an exhibition of his marksmanship and Guthrie was grazed on his right arm and neck, by bullets. Then Hicks sought the peaceful retreats of the wilds along the lower course of Deep Fork and has not been heard of since. Guthrie's hurts are not serious. - Stroud Star
