than the turning states evidence of tine
of Iho tools of the conspiracy nnd it
revelation by him of nil he knows of the?
plot nnd the surrender to the police
of the names of the principals and
Instigators of the crime, so far as he

Intents of tlio men for whom he, as be
thought, did commonplace nnd apparent,
ly Innocent fnvors did not como to him
until he learned of Cronln's death
through tho newspapers nnd tho manner
of Ids assassination. Then tho fear of
the penitentiary or the gallows scaled
Ids lips. Then, too, ho was seen by cer
tain persons supposed to hnvo been the
chief conspirators and nssurcil not only
of their innocence, but of nmple pin
