SLAYER GIVES # MONEYGF VICTIM ROBBERY THE MOTIVE FOP O'BRIEN'S FRIGHTFUL CRIME AT NECHE: BOY IS SOMEWHAT OF A LIAR WILL PLEAD GUILTY AND ASK FOR LIFE SENTENCE INSTEAD . i A ' • .. OF HANGING. Neche, N. D., Jan. 3.—When James O'Brien, the sixteen-year-old murderer of Arthur Le Claire, faced the cot-o ner's jury at the resumption of t*li'e In quest. he repeated almost word for word the confession of the crime which he gave to the detective hired by the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen, and the jury accordingly brought in a verdict to the effect that Le Claire came to his death as a result of,blows from a lather's hatchet in tlie hands of James O'Brien. Other evidence has been secured however, which has led the authori ties to believe that the boy's state ments regarding a quarrel with his victim were false, and that he delib erately murdered Le Claire for his money. When he was taken into the hall where the inquest was being held the 'prisoner looked pale and haggard. He was kept in the wings of the stage, and tlie crowd which filled the-room did not get an opportunity to see him Lied About Money. Following the inquest, O'Brien was taken back to 'tlie Pembina jail by Sheriff Roadhouse, after going home to bid his family good-by. In the confession O'Brien said that he had thrown the murdered man's money and pocketbook into the river Af-ter the inquest, however, he got an opportunity to speak to a friend and told him that if he wanted some mon eyhe should look under a stone which O'Brien described.' The detective was told of this and he made an investiga tion, but he found nothing hidden there but -some . lead pencils. When O'Brien was at bis parents' home his father fell on his knees and begged the boy to tell where he had hidden the money. James answered that he had burned it in the kitchen stove. Later, however, he told the de tective that if he might be allowed to show the wav. he would reveal the hid ing place of the booty. He took the officer with him to his father's barn, and from under a handful of twine on a beam in the loft he produced six $5 bills and four of the $10 denomina tion, which he declared were all that he took from' Le Claire's body. May Waive Examination. , It is understood that O'Brien will be arraigned in the district court in January before Judge W. J. Kenesaw and that he will plead guilt" and en ter -a petition for a life sentence iu stead of hanging. It is expected that he will waive a preliminary examina tion.
