Merle McGloria, a negro, was shot Sunday by William King, better known in the east Bottoms as "Yellow Bill." The shooting occurred on Mulbery street, near Second, and is said to have been the result of a dispute over twenty-five cents. Residents near where the shooting occurred are very reticent about it, will say but little, and the officers ate unable to learn much about it.

It is said King went into the home of Mrs. Thomas Gray and obtained a shot gun and fired it McGloria, hitting him in the shoulder. The injured man was taken to a doctor's office, where the fine shot was picked out. None of the shot had penetrated to a vital spot, it was said. "Yellow Bill is said to be an ex-convict and is known to the police as a "bad character." King fled after the shooting.

It is thought he caught a train for Kansas City. Officers were unable to find a trace of him. WANTED IN OKLAHOMA. R. C.

Brown, who has been running a jitney bus here, was placed in the county jail Tuesday morning a charge brought by Alexander Francis and Arthur Davis of Drumright, that Brown had disposed of a mortgaged automobile.

Page, an attorney, obtained his release.

Mr. Page aroused District Judge C. A. Smart, and District Clerk John L. High filed habeas corpus proceedings and had the papers served on Sheriff Barnett, who was ordered to present Brown in court the following morning.

County Attorney Redmond opposed the proceedings at the hearing, but did not make a formal answer to the writ. As there had been no local proceedings brought held there against Brown, the court was no sufficient reason for keeping him in custody, and he was released.

SHOOK, Pastor. ALLEN MAY VISIT OTTAWA. On behalf of the Ottawa Home Guards, Percy Moise wrote to Henry J. Allen asking him to speak in Ottawa, also inquiring about his intention as to being a candidate for governor. Following is Mr.

Allen's reply: Wichita, Kansas, October 29, 1917. Mr. Percy Moise, Ottawa, Kansas, Dear Percy: Upon my return home from France today I find your letter of the 24th inst. I do not know just exactly how my dates are to be distribluted for the next six weeks, but if I can make a meeting at Ottawa I will do so. I am contributing all of my time for the next three or four months jointly to the Red Cross activities and to Hoover.

am going to be a candidate for governor next summer, but I haven't any time to give to a campaign now. I believe it is the duty of every American who is given the opportunity to serve in the war activities to lay other ambitions aside and give his time. I appreciate your help and thank you more than I can tell you. Yours sincerely, H. J.

ALLEN. SAVE YOURSELF TROUBLE Have you been among strangers in a strange land or neighborhood? Then you know how one appreciates a word from home. You first looked for a letter from home, then the home paper. No letter can give the news of the community as completely as the home paper. The Ottawa World can be sent to any address for three cents a week, which is what the stamps on a letter cost since the increase in rate; or what it would cost to read the World first and then send it on.

Might as well pay us the postage and save the trouble of sending it yourself. AUTO STOLEN.
