WILL APPEAL WELTY CASE

It Will Go To the Federal Supreme Court

Guthrie: Attorney Buckner, representing Bert Welty, stated that the case will be appealed to the United States Supreme Court. Welty, together with Ben Cravens, is accused of having killed Alvin Bateman two years ago, while they were robbing the Schwartz store at Red Rock, in the Otoe reservation. Welty was convicted and sentenced to Leavenworth for life. Cravens was never captured.

Also the cas of Daniel Brown and Daniel Hurd, convicted of stealing cattle in the Osage reservation, will be appealed at once to the circuit court of appears at St. Louis.

In both this and the Welty case the attorneys hold the federal courts have no jurisdiction in criminal cases committed in Indian reservations.
