Ryan who was sheriff of the Do Not Agree. The people who were here in 1S33 when McMillan was killed, and who knew of the arrest of Pierce and Reed, their confession and se-itence, do not agree with the story told by these two men, and are indignant that the two should have been released from the penitentiary. The story that the confession was scared out of them seems to be true, but theconfessson itself seems to be genuine. It is said that they were scared into making a confession by threats of a mob, and that when they were with the officers in the old court house, the Santa Fe switch engine was run along the track, back and. forth past the court house, a crowd of men on it yelling and making threats of lynching Pierce and Reed.

These two men made their confession, and those who know of it say it is genuine without a doubt as they described their actions and told where the bloody sickle bar could be found, and where seyeral other articles could also be found. These were afterwards found in the places indicated by them. Another point against them is this: Pierce was not arrested at first for the murder, but was arrested for stealing an overcoat from two men, who had come here from the northern part of the county. The coat which he had in his possession was recovered and given county at that time thinks they were guilty and denies the talk of the otli- cers getting the men to make a "fake "THE HIAWATHA 11 tbe hatcber. confession.
