Story of the Crime
When asked by some one pres t

crime Thdmpkins replied as fol t
lows
I had to kill lthrt to save mY1
lie he began tshot in self t
defense and if 1 had been given
Justice I would have been free
The day before Christmas 1002
I laid off work from the mines
and went hunting In the eyen
ing as I was coming back to town <
IwCntby the house where
Br me wa living You know he
married my divorced wife She
Cj
called to me and askeciwhyIdld
tiJ
sK d tjfr 1fWffl1
her to let her husband get it We
had fipme words and I went over I
tQ Jim Lewis house Brfime and
his wife came over and lie left
to get flgunrrheytQld he
Avas going to kill me and asked
me to stay until he was gone
S
When I left I saw hhn coming up
the road and called to him He
did not answer but I heard a
gun click I ca11dagain and
agHin J lieatd the gun click The
third time 1 called there was a
flash and I knew Brame had shot
at me I raised my gun and shot
where I had seen the flash and
then I heard him groan I helped
carry him into the house and sent
fora doctor God knows I never
meant to kill him
This was the story and it was
related as Calmly and cpplly as if
the man standing under the
shadow of the gallows had been
relating a youthful prank
As soon as the day of execu
tion has been decided on Tliomo
kins will be placed in a cell to
himself and the death watch set
The jailer believes his confidence
and nerve will forsake him when
placed in solitary confinement 1
