Anthony Hillard was arrested here Wednesday by Deputy Fryer and taken to Atoka for trial. He was arrested on the complaint of a hotel porter at Atoka for breaking open a letter given him to mail.

He admitted to having taken a pocket knife from his show case. Such worthless scoundrels as this one should be in jail and we hope Anthony will get what he so richly deserves.
