The court did not permit Peterson to re peat what were the words of Anderson to Peterson as Peterson went over the fence into the Funk yard, following the murder. Neither did the court permit Peterson to state what reply Anderson had made to Peterson when he inquired of the accused what was the condition of Funk. Later Peterson did state that he had noticed that Anderson appeared griel' stricken and that tears came to his eyes. He did not notice that he was flushed or that his face had any un usual color. Peterson said that when he first went to trunk's house it was so full of people that he could not get in, al though Anderson stepped inside the door for a minute, and then he and Anderson went to the Anderson house.

He started to go through the' house to get a view of Funk's body, but, thinking maybe he was not wanted, he turned back and, as he came out in the yard again, he con fronted Anderson. They glared at one another and when three or four feet apart Sattler said that Anderson re marked "I shouldn't done it—I should not say this. I had three men working here. Two were good men, one wasn't so good, but I don't think one of them did it." Sattler said he heard Anderson say something about going back to the bank, as the papero there were all mixed up.
