The Western Star, January 23, 1904.

Reward for Arrest & Conviction
of Murderer or Murderers
of Roland Wright

Loren Ferrin, of Ridge Summit, while in town last Saturday secured a number of voluntary subscriptions to a fund for the purpose either of offering a reward for the arrest and conviction of the murderer or murderers of the late Roland Wright or to be applied toward the case. About $300 has been subscribed in this county. We understand that the governor of Oklahoma has offered, or has promised to offer, a liberal reward for the same purpose. The people of this county are in earnest in endeavoring to have a thorough investigation made and the guilty party or parties brought to justice.
