there, Jep said Spenco was "the next
man bu wanted killed ;" I never heard
Jep bilk nbout these matters betore; 1

and lor me ami Mat-hill lo meet nltii
the next morning; wu played cards and
had some whisky ; we didn't play but n

we was talking, so If anybody come up
they would think we were playing card ;
we were not there over and hour, maybe
I staled bclore Squhe Hcynolsd that wo

cribed the place; he told mo SoinMlihig
about It one night while he wa on guard;
I think bo named nbout some bushes
being broke ; maybe bu told mn nbout
how the bushes were broke nnd which
was the closest to the fence. I think he
did ; If he charged me to re

don't remember It; I testllled
at Murphvsbnro In the trial of Hullmer
nnd Haker; 1 don't recollect II I stated
anything there to Mr. Lniidrum about a
pardon; I will not auto
positively that I did not say something
about a rrpriere or pardon at that trial,
for 1 don't remember; I took the boots to
my house, and Marshall got them ; 1 tct- .
tilled about this matter at Murphysbnro;
I say he didu't.'bnve the mjthen.htit he got

myself; 1 don't remember Mr.Deunlten'a
coming to the Jail by hltnelt; don't re

testify against these parties; I dnn't
think I said 1 wanted money to leave here:
"I won't trstliy against them;" I
might have said "Hy God. I won't see
these parties ;'' 1 don't remember saying
I want to get the money and got away.
