Wright Voluntarily Surrenders
About eight years ago, W. B. WRIGHT, a quiet farmer at the time living on the South Canadian River some 7 or 8 miles from Ada, became involved in a personal difficulty with his son-in-law, LON EDISON, which resulted in the loss of the young man’s life. The killing was regretted by none, perhaps, more than W. B. Wright who shot the young man. But the provocation, it seems, was great and everything considered, appears to Mr. Wright unavoidable necessity to execute a sensational deed. The cause of the killing seems to have been a grave one. W. B. WRIGHT left the country soon after the killing, and so far as we know, had not been heard of by anybody in the community since until last Thursday, when he went to Ada, submitted himself to the marshal ED BRENTS and asked for a trial. Public sympathy … Mr. Wright will be put on trial for the killing in September in Ada and will be represented by HON. HENRY M. FURMAN of that city, meantime he will be enjoy personal liberty, his bond having been made an easy one--$2500.
