PRISONER CLAIMED ANIMALS, Statement So Positive and Circum stantial That Oflicers Were in Xo Hurry for Formal Identification. REPUBLIC SPECIAL. Lake Charles, -La.. March 24. Will Mar tin, who formerly worked with Edward Ration, the nllcged murderer of the Earl family. Is the latest witness against tha prisoner discovered by tho State authori ties. Ha says that he was In Lake Charles on February 14 and saw Batson riding In Ward Earl's buggy and leading one of Earl's mules. He talked with Batson about the animals and told the latter that he rocognlzed tho mules and a horse as the property of Earl. Batson, ho says, denied that Earl owned the animals, saying that they belonged to himself. Martin told his stories to tho officers be fore Batson'd arrest, and so circumstantial and detailed was his statement that tha authorities felt In no hurry to send any one to New Orleans to Identify Batson as the man who had tried to dispose of the Earl mules onco they had him In custody. J'eir Inrlilcnts Cotuo (o LlKht. Other Incidents nre coming to light which ecem to indicate that Batson several months ago became possessed of a desire to own tho Earl team. Early In December Ward Earl loaned Batson the black horse and buggy, to travel oer to Lake Charles. Bat son arrived in tho 'city during tho day and accidentally came across William Cogney. Mr. Cogney remarked that the team was a very Hkely-Iooklng outfit, and Batson at once replied (hat Cogney could buy it for $100. Then Batson devoted sev eral hours to driving Cogney around town. urging tho purchase of tho team all the time. Cogney did not care to do business, however, and Batson returned to Welsh. On Christmas Day Batson entered Sam De Shea's btuble, at Welsh, and. calling Do She to one tide, said that ho had Just re ceded a telephone message from Ward EarL He had been arrested In Lake Charles und wanted some money. Batson repre sented himself to be a partuer of Earl's and said that he would leave tho black horse as security for a loan of $10. De Shea refused to advance the money. Careful study of tho details of tho mur ders known have led the authorities to come to the conclusion that the entire family wero killed on Wednesday, Febru ary 12. and not on Tnursday. as was first sut-peoted. Mr. Fred Earl, tha only brother remaining, is of this opinion, and gltea very strong reasons for believing that way. He thinks that Ward Earl was shot la the early afternoon or in the morning, when asleep. Every indication points to fh.f fnet nnd that Fay Earl ran Into the room to learn the cause of the shooting and was himself shot down. The two boys certainly stopped at Ward Earl's house on their way home from, school. They both rode Johw Earl's pouy and turned it loose. . Itld-rlc Pony Gave the Alarm. The animal at once wandered home, and Mr. Earl believes, that his mother became frightened at tno riderlcS3 pony and at onco walked ocr to Ward's house to learn the trouble. Mr.IlEari. ne Dcuevcs. " out In tho Held, Just In the act of return ing to the house, when Batson came upon him and shot him down. Close estimates made by Mr. Fred Earl fix the amount stolon by the murderer at about $U5. On Wednesday Ward Earl gave John a check for $25 to cash. The boy got the money, and after paying a few small bills and buying tome Tew things, had $20 left, which he Intended to bring to Ward. Mrs. Earl always carried from $S0 to $W abcut her person. Sho never allowed the amount to go below $80. This money sho must have had on the afternoon of the mur der. The money was not on hand when the body was found Mr. Earl always ear ned about $3, and this money was also gone. . Unless tho attorneys for the State can find some means by which a trial can bo fixed within the thirty days stated Intha law the case will not come up for wial befo're April 14. Within the next few da8 Batson will be brought Into court and noti fied of the date on which his trial will be fixed. r 1. Tlvlnlc llnblt.
