WILL POWELL SLAIN BY A TOWN MARSHAL

KILLING FO BOY PROVOKES MUCH EXCITEMENT AT TAHLEQUAH

Special to The Oklahoman.

Muskogee, I.T., Nov.30 -

Will Powell, a boy sixteen years old, was shot and killed
at Tahlequah by John Sharp, city marshal of that town and
an ex-member of the Cherokee legislature.

The slaying of the lad has caused intense excitement as it
is alleged that Sharp was drunk and that the murder was
unprovoked.

Young Powell was a nephew of Bud Ledbetter of this city,
famous as one of the ablest and most fearless deputy
United States marshals in the Indian Territory.
