Golden-Williams Case Put off Till March
Tuesday afternoon in Durant in district court, when the case against Mordecai Golden and Sadie Golden was called, the defense made a motion to continue the case until the next term of court- alleging the physical condition of Mrs. Golden as the reason. (We will find out later that Sadie was pregnant.) With the consent of the State, the court allowed the motion, and the case was set for the next March term.
Judge March stated that he would not have granted the continuance except that the State seemed willing to this move.
Both sides apparently were ready for trail. More that a hundred witnesses were on hand from Caddo where the murder occurred.
The case against D. B. Williams, set for Thursday was postponed at the same time.
These parties are charged with the murder of Thomas J. Craghead, which occurred May 16th last. The facts have been so thoroughly gone over by the people here that it is not necessary again to repeat them.

The Golden William Trial Set for April 5
The trial of M. E. Golden and Mrs. Golden and D.B. Williams is set for April 5th. Witnesses summoned in the last call of the case are required to attend from time to time until discharge by the court.
There are many- perhaps sixty- witnesses in this case from Caddo, and every one of them must be on hand at the call of the case.
M. E. Golden and Sadie Golden are charge, by information, with the murder of Thos. J. Craghead, which occurred last Mary 16th. D. B. Williams is charged with the same crime, being indicted by the grand jury last June.
At the time of the horrible murder The Herald published the main facts of the testimony as given by both the state and the defense. Four .25 caliber bullet holes were made by the automatic pistol in the breast of the deceased. The shooting occurred on the sidewalk in front of the Methodist church about ten o’clock in the evening.
Golden has been in the county jail since the evening of the murder. Mrs. Sadie Golden and D. B. Williams have been out on bond.
