Foreman, v. a be whiskered Hun appearing fellow, who poses as an apostolic preacher with disloyalty throughout his entire system and tingling i% his bristling auburn chit* adornments, heard of the/ hwes tion artd '•fliwered^lnto'Sti^ bright and early to lend august presence and defianj th£ purpose of ^ie council & ftftite to show - all erring ci"' *mwe they were commi fcitavious wrong to the' th#r famines and their bars, when they uttbeknowi mix German dbgma with, religion and American lo# John Ketcheft brother of Ketcher; and a religious folld; of the whiskers wi& a * noodle and cold feet tow American government, S Vrived to do a Qrother'ei is brother, EHis Ketcher. John was asked "by the, 1 attorney and council of committee to sign-a pledge. He replied in reap ful terms, but objected to'Sa ing the pledge on account oil ligious .scruples. .

Quiet was finally*restated and Ellis Ketcher arid Tola Boquet, when the loyalty pledge was explained to them, signed the pledge and expressed their full confidence .in America and the American government policies. Foreman was then brought from the jail raving like a mad man. A crowd on the outside'of the room where investigation was being conducted propelled a rope with a hang-man's noose through the transom and - requested connection. His reverence imme diately became docile. His answers as to his loyalty were so rotten that it was decided to send him to U. S. Commissioner Frye at Sallisaw. This was done Tuesday afternoon by Sheriff Mose Crittenden and Police Judge Bradley. Foreman has been in the coun ty the past three weeks holding gatherings in the Westville section of the county. John Ketcher returned to Stil well Wednesday morning to ob r tain the Ford car of Foreman 's, Upon seeing a number of red crosses which had-been painted upon the car he said they were toe "marks of the beast'*; Also stated he did nbt sign the loyalty pledge and would not. He was arrested and placed in jail upon charge of disturbing the peace of patriotic citizens who are giving their time, money and hearty sympathy and sincere prayers for the life and protection of christian nations against a barbarous, merciless foe.
