West Shelby a year ajro last sprinc la
the woman who gets credit for out-i
-reneralling the Diatricl Attorney.
The ? la*h between tba two took place
at Little Valley, N. Y., where tba
i.uthoritie* held Irvintf Kiag, an ttui
. ? ,? ? junk peddler, who made the xen
v at .onal confe**ion that he and (harleii |
O'CoBBOll. an Auburn convict, were the
real murderer*, and not Stielow and
N'elson Green.
IMstrlrt Attorney Skeptical.
Knickerbocker, who convicted Stielow
and Greer. of the crime, wa* pro
feesedly *keptu*al of the Kinp eeafea
aion When Mr*. Humi*ton ?*ked him |
to charge King with the murder and
lake him baek to Orleans County the
Dlatriei Attorney fistly refused.
He declared that he would lake no
action until he had the uriginal con?
fession of King in hi* po**es*ion. Ile
Indieated Ihat nothing King had ?etd ,
ha.l alterid hir. opinion of Stielow S |
"How doe* King's confc*mon chrcs |
up with the known fact*?" he wa* i
a?ked.
"it doe?n't check up at all, except,
with the fact that I'help* wa* killed,"
the di?tnct attorney r*toited.
"Well," *aul Mrs. Humisten. "there *
your man; auppoae you ask him if ha
didn't kill I'help*."
Queation Wa* | Poaer.
This waa somewhat of a po?er fori
the Diatrict Attorney. With a ?how ]
of rcluetance he finally ordererl Sherirt* .
Hartlett, of Orlean* County, to take'
Kmg m charge. Hartlett did not ap- ,
p.ar at all convinced of King's guilt.j
either.
"Any one who has been reading the;
papers could tell that sort of a story," i
he averred.
Ne*/ertholoar? Slflg soon wa* on hia
way from Cattaraugu* ("ounty to Or
lenna County in a motor car, In the
car, al?o, were the Histnct Attorney;
and Attorney Make, of Albion, Or
leaaa County.
A flfth member of the party wa* I
George W. Newton, the Huffaio detec- I
tive who got from Stielow the confes- :
sion whicn convicted him. It is the '.
charge of Mr*. Humiston and others
who hav* been working in behalf of
St'elow that he had no idea of what
was in the document to which Newton
induced him to put hi* mark, Stielow
being unable to read or writc.
Newton Claimed Reward.
Newton was one of the dete.'tives to
Shara il] the 14,000 offered for the ar
rr*st and conviction of the Phelps mur
aarara.
Mr*. Charle* Vorhee*, of Friendslnp.
who furnished clues contributing to
King's arrest, now is the claimant of j
the reward. j
Mr*. Hunii*ton, after her brush with |
Knickerbocker, boarded a train for!
Sing Sing, with the original confessio-i
?till in her posseston. She wa* expected i
at the pri?on late last night for a I
conference with Warden Osborne, Pep- j
uty Warden Miller and others who i
ni.ied in the fight for Stielow'* life.
Sheriff Niehol*, of Cattaraugus I
County. agr**d ?<> relinquish ciis'ody
of King only on thc understanding that
th. prisoner would be triod for murder
by the Orleana County authorifos. Ai
an extra pr< < ui'ion, King, before bt
left for Orlean* County, was asked M
sign another copy of his confession of
last Thursday night. This he did. and
?aain ieelared all the statements in II
were true.
I'rivate detectives who sided in ,
aaaertaiBiag King'* movements thej
night of the crime would not say if
they knew af an accomplice in the
murder tl wai said that the identity
ef all who had a part in tho killing
would come out in tlie trial of King.
Some Disrrepanriea Pound.
Warden Rattlgan of Auburn prison
would not. let any one BOS "'onnell
yest, iday. The latter's ?tatemont,
which plaee* all tho blan;* on King,
is said to contain some discrepaneiei
which will have to be explained be- )
fore ho i? ablo to clear hinrelf.
An extraordinary term of the Su?

for a new trial will bo argued, was
