that the epileptic colony will be established.
There are about 1,000 epileptics In Iowa,

capable of doing a great deal of work, and
if they were colonized on a farm they
would be able to very nearly pay their own

they are seized with a spasm they are able
to work. For this purpose a farm of st

For Northern Part of State.
The Institution would probably be located
in the northern part of the state, on high
ground, far removed from any city. The
buildings necessary would not be expensive.
This would reduce the total cost of main
taining state Institutions.
The other Institution which Is a source of
a great deal of annoyance and trouble Is
the Inebriate Institution at Knoxvllle. The
experiment of compulsory cure of persons
addicted to the liquor and drug habits has
proved practically a failure. The number
of persons actually cured or benefited Is
very small. The only, persons who get good
results are those who voluntarily go to the
institution. Those who are forced to go
there by order of court are always defiant.
They conspire together and many - run
sway. For some time a serious effort has
been made to recapture and return all who
go away, but this is proving expensive, as
the number of desertions Increases all the
time. It is possible that the institution will
be abandoned, and certain it is that the
disposition of the state Is to not spend any
more money there In permanent improve
ments. Money for Tuberculosis Hospital.
The largest expenditure of the state
under the Board of Control recently has
been for the new tuberculosis sanitarium

OKMULGEE, Okl.. Nov. lb'.-Five per
sons were killed and ten others wounded
yesterday afternoon In a tight between Jim
Deckard, a negro desperado, and law of
ficers. The dead:
EDGAR ROBINSON, sheriff, of Okinul.
HENRY KLABER, assistant chief of po
lice of Okmulgee.
CHAPMAN BROTHERS, negroes.
JIM DECKARD, negro.
Steve Grayson. Indian boy, fatally beaten.
Vie Parr, chief of police; shot .through
Deputy sheriff, name not learned, arm
Seven others, slightly wounded.
The disturbance began at the St. Louis
& San FTanclsco station, where Jim Deck
ard engaged In a fight with an Indian boy,
Steve Grayson, and beat him Into Insensi
bility witli a rock. Friends of Grayson
notified tho police, and when Policeman
Klaber went to the station Deckurd fled
to his house nearby, barricaded himself In,
and when Klaber approached Deckard shot
and Instantly killed him. Sheriff Robinson
gathered a posse in a few minutes and hur
ried to the scene. Part of this posse waa
made up of a group of negroes whom the
sheriff commissioned as deputies.
As the posse approached tho house Deck
urd opened fire with a rifle, firing! as
rapidly as he could load his weapon. Ths
sheriff fell first, instantly killed. Then
five of the negro deputies were sluln.
Deckard's house was soon surrounded by
a frenzied mob of armed men. Fire was
set to a house Just north of Deckard's.
Volleys were poured Into Deckard's house
Lnd he was shot down. He was seen to
roll over on tho floor, strike a match and
set fire to his own hctise, which was soon
a roaring furnace in which his body wus
Incinerated. Deckard evidently had a large
quantity of ammunition stored In his house,
as many cartridges exploded while the
house , was burning.
Governor Haskell at Guthrie was notified
of the battle ohd'of the bad feei ng between
whites and jiegrbes that had grown out
:f It and threatened a race riot. The gov
ernor at once ordered the mllltla company
ut Muskogee '(o prepare to go to Okmulgee
and a special train was made ready to

Mtuatlon. News of the preparation to send
militia here had. a good effect on tin?
disorderly, element .of both races and at 7
p. m. the crowd had dispersed and further
trouble was not expected.
When it became known that no other
negro had assisted Deckard against the
officers the a.ilk of reprisals subfelded.
The news that troops have been ordered
out by Governor Haskell had a good ef
fect, and tonight the town was quiet and
no further trouble was expected. The
mllltla will not reach Okmulgee until late
tonight. The governor's order will be Is
sued at 6 o'clock and some time will bo

A dispatch from Muskogee tonight said
that the Muskogee company of the mllltla
