Near Serious Automobile Accident on Talala Road

A near-serious automobile accident occurred Saturday night on the Talala road about six miles south of Nowata, when a Buick coupe, driven by J K Christy, of Tulsa, side-swiped the Ford roadster in which Mr and Mrs C B Carrico, of Talala, were riding. Both cars were over turned, and it is a mirical that the occupants escaped serious injury. All of the parties were brought to the office of a local physician where they were given medical attention. Mrs Carrico received a cut on her left wrist and both limbs were bruised. Mr Carrico received a Severe shaking up and Mr Christy received a slight cut on his forehead.

According to Mrs Carrico, the car driven by Mr Christy was going south and Mr Carrico and herself were on their way to Nowata. The Christy car was on the wrong side of the road and Carrico car had turned out as far as possible to keep from going in the ditch. When he saw that a collision was inevitable, Mr Carrico attempted to turn his car out of the road but was hit by the Buick. The impact turned the Carrico car over and the Buick continued for a short distance before it went in the ditch and overturned.

P A Powell Dies Suddenly In Texas.

P S Powell, age 62, former Nowata banker and lately engaged in the oil business in the Texas field, with headquarters at San Antonio, Texas, suffered a stroke of apoplexy Friday night at the home of a friend in the latter city and died on his way to the hospital.

News of Mr Powell’s passing was first received Friday night in a telephone message to Hugh Conine, intimate friend of deceased, and the news of his sudden passing was a distinct shock to Mr Powell’s many Nowata friends and acquaintances.

According to a telephone message received by the Star from J D Powell, a son residing at Eldorado, Kansas, last night, definite funeral arrangements had not bee completed, but is known interment will be in Eldorado, with the funeral being held probably Tuesday.

According to the son, the information regarding his father’s death was to the effect that he apparently was in his usual health and had accepted a dinner invitation at the home of a friend in San Antonio. After partaking of the meal, Mr Powell complained of being ill and was stricken shortly afterward. He was rushed to a hospital but expired on the way. Mrs Powell, who is residing in Tulsa, together with other relatives was notified, and a brother, Carl, of Eldorado, left that city Satuday morning for San Antonio to accompany the body home.

Surviving are the widow, two daughters, Misses Pauline, of Tulsa, and Emily of Bartlesville, two sons, Perry, Jr., who resides with his mother at Tulsa and Joe D, of Eldorado, Kas, one sister, Mrs John Knox, of Eureka, Kas, and five brothers Carl, J C, D E of Eldorado, L H of Wichita, and W W of Los Angeles.

Mr Powell came to Nowata in January, 1905, and held the position of cashier of the First National bank until 1922, when he went to Tulsa to engage in the oil business. He later became interested in the Texas field and moved to San Antinio (Antonio) in order that he might be near his operations. While in this city he served as president of the school board, councilman, and was the first president of the local Rotary Club. He was active in all civic affairs and had a large number of friends in this county who will be sorry to hear of his death.

Nowata County “Lifer” Escapes Second Time.

Alfred King, Negro, serving a life sentence in the Oklahoma penitentiary on a conviction of murder, escaped from that institution last Monday, according to information received by Sheriff Gillespey Friday. This makes the second time that King has escaped from the pen, having gained his liberty August 8, 1924. He was rearrested at Independence, Kas., the following November, on information furnished the Kansas authorities by Sheriff Gillespey.

King was sent to the penitentiary from Nowata county on April 30, 1910, after being convicted of the murder of George Bird, another Negro, at a house on the east side. The murder was a cold-blooded one and the jury, according to Price Jones, who was a member of the jury that convicted King, wanted to give him the death penalty, but the judge’s instructions were such that they could only give him life in the penitentiary.

The card received by Sheriff Gillespey Friday gives a picture of the Negro and his description. A reward of $50 is offered for his capture.
