X ' DETAILS THE CRIME.
X Broken in spirit and in mortal terror of punishment beyond the grave, John M. X
X Shockley, shortly after noon yesterday made to Chief Lynch, Detective Raleigh and
4- "Warden Wright, a full confession of the murder of Amasa Glcason and Tom Brigh-
-4- ton, and. proposed that he should make all reparation In his power to the bereaved X
X families of the dead men. He stated that he made it of his own free will and accord X
- and. with the idea of relieving everyone else of suspicion. J
whieh he had ever been engaged, and
that he first got the Idea of doing this
kind of work when in Pueblo about a
year ago. during a time when cars were
being held up almost nightly ln that
city and which continued with success
until the streei-car company provided
every one of its carmen with firearms
and had them all sworn in as special
officer Nursing this hunch on an easy
way to make money, Shockley went to
San Francisco, where he was employed
for a time as strcct-cur motorman, and
then drifted to Montana, Idaho and Salt
Lake. He confessed to no crimes other
than those committed In Salt Lake.
TOLD STRAIGHT STORY.
Shockley told an apparently straight
story In regard to( the double murder,
naturally, .of course, giving himself the
full benefit of the fact that the carmen
put up a fight against him and that he
firmly believed his own life was In dan
ger. His stcry is borne out in every de
tail by the facts which were already
known to the police, by the statement
of Prothero and by the statements pre
viously made by Shockley, except in re
lation to his having given his gun and
hat to Frank Wnish, his chum, at Og
den, on the Saturday night before, and
in relation to his own whereabouts on
the night of the crime.
HOW 1IURDER WAS COMMITTED.
Shockley stated that on Wednesday
night he took the Second South street
car which leaves Main and Second
South streets at 11:1S, and rode to Tenth
East and Fourth South streets, from
whence ho walked to Thirteenth East
nnd Second South streets, the scene of
the crime, arriving there just ahead of
the 11:45 First South street car. On the
way out Shockley wore a black stiff hat.
carrying underneath his clothing the
light-colored Fedora hat which was In
tended to be a misleading clue to the
perpetrator of the hold-up. When a few
rods from the car he stopped and
changed hats and tied a handkerchief
over his face, leaving the black derby
in the path. Then, with ills gun In hid
hand, he went to the door of the car
and ordered the carmen, who were sit
ting Inside, to hold up their hands.
Neither man seemed to be excited, ac
cording to Shockley's stutement, and
the smaller man, which was Brighton,
suid: "You had better put up your
READY FOR A FIGHT.
Shockley, realizing then that the men
were going to pitt up a light, started to
back out of the- car. lib clulm.s, but before
he could reach the door the two men made
a rush at him and there was a clinch.
During tho struggle which followed Shock- i
ley llred his revolver three times, he said,
once alining at the arm of tho iiiotoriiiun.
who had a gun aimed at him, and twlci;
shooting to kill. Then, eecaplng from the
car. he went to the place where he had
left hi? stiff hat. dropping the Fedora to
the ground na he wont. and. donning th
former, ran away ln a southwesterly direc
tion, retracing hla stops to the Intersection
of Tenth East and Fourth South streets,
thence going south to Sixth South nnd
thence went nearly to tho railroad tracks.
COULD NOT KILL HIMSELF.
"As 1 walked along Sixth South street,"
paid Shockley. "I fully intended to kill
myself nnd three different times hod m
gun cocked for that purpose. Thn 1
thought' 1 would go buck to my room,
write .some lo'tor to the folk? and finish
up the Job there. 1 finally gac up the
klca altogether, however, ami na 1 wa-i
passing along the stieet I reached over i
board fence and dropped the gun between
the fence and a big poplar trc.
GOT AN EARLY PAPER.
"After that I walked on nearly to the
railroad tracks, then went north to South
Temple street, cast to Main and crossi-d
Main diagonally on First South and went
to my room. I went to bed. hut lay
awake until heard th-? :evsboyn calling
the morning papers on the stieet. Then
I dressed and went across the street to
buy a paper.
HEART BROKE DOWN.
"After looking at tho headlines I thought
T should drop dead before r could get back
to my room, for I have heart trouble
from snoklng loo many cigarettes, and
the excitement under which I Avas laboring
was something frightful."
THEY FOUND THE GUN.
Shockley was unable to describe to the
officers the exact place where he had
dropped his gun, but Detectives Chase and
Raleigh wont to search for it Immediately
after returning from the penitentiary, and
were not long in locating It. It was found
in precisely tho kind of piece the man had
described, on Sixth South street, about
three rods east of Slate, on the Hawkins
vacant lot, and within 20 yards of the
homo of Amasa Glcason, one of the mur
dered men. The gun is, a wlckcd-looklng
.-lo-callbcr Coifs, with an eight-Inch bilr
rel. When found It contained two empty
shells, two loaded shells, nhd two cham
bers wpro empty.
NOT AFTER THE REWARD.
The officers found that Shoukloy'a story
confirmed everything that had been told
them by Prothero. the itifomnnl." Pro
thero declared that the matter of receiving
a reward never entered hla mind when he
went to the police with his story, but that
his only object ln having Shockley taken
was on account of the rear which he on.
tertalncd for' the man. '
KNEW HE WAS A MOLD-UP.
He was satisfied that hp was a hold-up
from the fact of his going out at night
with his gun and having money when he
returned, and Shockley's nervous, excited
condition after the murdr led blrn lo be
lieve that ho wai the murderer and to fear
for his own safety.
NEVER TOLD OF II IS DEEDS.
Shockley staled that ho never told Pro
thero of the hold-ups ln which ho was
engaged, .and the only mnnm r In which
tho latter was in any way connected with
the ciimes was In accepting money which
Shockley gave him. Shockley nlco stated
that when ho was here In July he hud a
partner nnmed Garnet t. or Gates, and thai
he knew nothing of the hold-ups In which
Shockley was then engaged.
THOUGHT IT FUNNY.
lie described to tho officers the manner
ln which this partner would comnent upon
tho hold-ups upon reading the 'accounts
of thorn in tho morning papers, and evi
dently considered It quite a Joke that the.
man didn't know thai he was talking to
the hold-up himself.
STORY OF HIS TRAVELS.
Shockleys account of tlie wanderings ol
himself and luirtncrs before coming here
Is believed to be substantially correct.
From Dillon. Mont., where the now ta
mous soft hat was purchased, from the
band of which tho name of tin, maker was
removed, Shockley went lo Idaho Falls,
whore he worked In a restanrnnt for a
short time and whero lie fell In with Pro
thero. LEFT WALSH IN OGDEN.

RECORD OF HOLD-UPS,
What Murderer Shockley Has Done
in That Line.
The deep remorse evidently felt by
Shockley over his crime may be due
In a large measure to the fact that he
was at one time (employed as a street
car motorman in San Francisco. It
was, perhaps, while In this employ
ment that lie formed a dislike for
street-car companies in general, and
at the same time gained a brotherly
feeling for the employee;?. The latter
sentiment was displayed when be con
fined his robberies to company money
and left the watches and other per
sonal , property of his victims undis
turbed. WHEN HE BEGAN HERE.
He begun his operations ln Salt Lake
on the night of July Dili, at the end
of the Brigham street line. At 1:45
Motorman H. Beck was slowing down
the car when a man, with a handker
chief over his face and a gun In his
hand, jumped on the front end of the
car and commanded Beck to stop. The
latter thought he was Joking, until the
robber pressed the gun against his
back and told him to stop oV he would
coon be a dead man. At that Beck
stopped, and the hold-up, who Is now
known to be Shockley, marched him
down through the car to the back end,
where Conductor Woodward was
changing the trolley.
HE GOT. THE CASH.
Forcing the 'motorman to hold the
trolley down. Shockley wcirt through
the conductor and took all the silver
In his pockets. He then said: "Give
me the vcvl of that money; 1 know
you've got some paper money some
where about you." The conductor had
a ten-dollar bill In his hip pocke, and
when Shockley .found It he asked the
motorman If lie had any money Beck
said he had not, and the robber did
not search him, neither did he take the
cai men's watches.
WAS NO OTHER MAN.
Beck antl Woodwurd claimed to have
seen a Vscconil man with a gun, but
Shockley, in his confession, says lhat
ho was alone. After getting the
money, amounting to 321.30, he ran
fouth tdwnrd the city reservoir.
, HIS SECOND CRIME.
On July 15lh Shockley held up Con
ductor McAllister and Motorman Har
ris on car No. 72, at the east end of
the First South line, the place where
Gleason and Brighton were killed last
Wednesday,,. The car had slopped at
11:15 and the conductor had taken hold

For some reason he did not lire, and I wrenched myself, free from the other

e and even at this time the thought passed through my mind, "I wonder if it's

while the . motorman started back
through the car to put the trolley on
a 1 the rear end. When he had gone
about two-thirds tho length of the car
the motorman was confronted by
Shockley. a handkerchief over hla face,
and ordered to halt. The car was dark
and the motorman thought the hold-up
was an old man with a white beard
who was trying to scare him. He
started to brush past and rnn squarely
into Shockley's gun.
HE HELD UP HIS HANDS.
He then decided to hold up his hands
as ordered, and the hold-up . went
through his pockets, securing 42. 00 in
"Is that all you've got?" demanded
"It Is." said the motorman. ,
"Well, what kind of a d d ruivare
you on. anyway'.'" queried the robber,
and Harris admitted that it way a
HOW TRICK WAS TURNED.
Shockley then forced the motorman
to precede him to the front of the car,
Avhcrc he hurriedly went through one
or two of the pockets of the conductor,
who was posing ns .the motorman, se
curing from him a lead dollar, a Co
lumbian half-dollar and a good half
dollar, leaving 520 or more of company
cash. Warning the men to refrain
from turnlhg on the lights until he was
a safe distance away. the highwayman
disappeared in tho darkness.
BOTH WENT DOWN.
Emboldened by his succesi on the
two previous occasions, Shockley made
an attempt to rob car No. 120 on the
Fort DouglaB line at 12:05 o'clock on
the night of July 2Cth. The ca;' was
coming toward the city and had taken
the switch at Twelfth East and Fifth
South to let an outgoing car pass.
Conductor Robert Larson was on the
rear platform manipulating tho trol
ley and the car was dark when Shock
Icy., with a handkerchief maHk on his
face und gun in hand, jumped on tho
platform and told Larj'on-to throw up
his hands. The conductor had his report-book
In one hand and the trolley
rope in the other. lie was so badly
frightened that he dropped everything
and literally fell over the hold-up. both
men rolling off the car and into the
FIRED FOUR SHOTS.
Larson managed to regain Ills feet
first and started to run after the car
which had Just gone by toward the
fort. The hold-up followed him for a
short distance nnd fired four shots. Lar
con failed to catch the outgoing car and,
after assuring himself thut the danger
was ovtr, resumed his trip toward
Shockley admits that he fired 011 this
occasion, but says he did so only for
the purpose of making Larson stop and
without trying to hit him.
NOT ALWAYS A HOLD-UP.
This ended Shockley's summer cam
paign in Salt Lake. He wont North
and worked at various places In Idaho
and Montana. Sometimes he acted as
solicitor, meeting with good success;
at other times he worked as a waiter.

SOME EVIDENCE GIVEN. jH
When the public read of the c&so &
great number of people came forward
with statements which might have hail
a bearing on the matter. Two street
car men remembered a stranger who
rode to the end' of the First South t
line nt 9:30 and inquired what had be-
come of the conductor, the latter hav
ing left the car at Eleventh Eas-t. A
Mrs. IcFee told of a man who came
to her house on South West Temple fl
and asked for a shirt. Two callboys
at the Rio Grande depot told of
a bareheaded man who was waiting for
a.truin about midnight after the mur
der. Some women recalled seeing two t
men whispering together in what they
considered a suspicious manner, on a
First South car. A mail carrier tc
ported that he had noticed bare
headed man on Sixth South street
about C o'clock In the: morning. Each
of these reports was followed up by

STORY OF HIS PARTNER.
The ofllcers were still at oea when,
at 3 o'clock Thursday afternoon, Percy
Prothero walked into the police ' stu

thought his partner had committed the
crime. He added that he was afraid
to keep still about it, for fear that his

Prothero agreed to lead the officers to
tho right man.
HOW HE WAS CAUGHT. .
Leaving the station, ho walked to the
rooming-house over the Occidental sn
loon and came down-stairs in a few
moments with John Shockley. The
