i-,,.. Tht He Alone Killed Shanklin
.lawn . ---
and the Two Knapps Totally
Absolves d Pierce From Cent
plicity in the Crimes.
Tacoma, Dec. 11. Deputy Sheriff
Watson, of Cowli'a county, haa obtained
a confession front Martin Stickel, the
murderer of the Knanp family and Wil
liam Sbanklin, In Cowlita county, in
whicli Stickel acknowledges that he him
self killed the tl ree pemns mentioned.
Stickel say that EJ Pierce, whom lie
has heretofore implicated, dec!i in g that
Pierce did the thootinp, had nothing
whatever to do with the' killing, ami
that he went unassisted and alone to the
home of Shanklin and t he Knapps and
committed the murders.
Stickel's second confession ia the result
of a religious turn which the man's
mind has taken in the past two days.
T.ie Salvation Army had an evangelistic
meeting in the county j ail ye-terlay
afternoon, and Slickel was a very in'er- j
ested lUteuer. The Salvation Army
otlicers prayed w ith him. and h pro
fessed to have a chance o heart. He
seems far more cheerful and contented,
and appears to hav-" ; desire to make a
clean breast of hi- ninitnsl acts.

and disc v '-! h - t.ad nothing
to do wiin i A ' o i;n but littie
p'rsuasion, -tic i l-.-r.iy admitted thai
he alone was the gu Ity man. By mak
ing this conleseioti, Stickel virtually
places a rope around his neck, as he
stands self-confessed, guilty of murder
in the first degree.
Stickel eeenrs to have told the truth
about the crimes in the first confession,
in the 'natter of the time and manner in
which the murders were committed, the
o ily statements foreign to the truth lie
ing his implication of. Pierce, which he
now says m a pure fabrication. The
murderer appears anxious now to assiet
the law bo tar as possible in the prosecu
tion of the crimes.
Taken altogether, Stickel's mind is a
(j uer m;x-ap of chilishness and brutal
ity. There ie an utter lack of cunning,
and also at apparent total disregard ol
the prompting) of bis conscience, if, in
deed, the inn haa any mental develop
ment of that character whatever. In
none of his confessions bag he evinced
the slightest sign or evidence of repent
ance or repret, and as for haunting
via, oris 0 his victims disturbing the
man's peace, it is the last thing : nyone
would expert, w ho hat heard him talk
for a short tune in his easy, rambiir.g
way of the road he took to do the kiiiiog
of the Knapps, of the struggling he heard
inside the house when he shot the verier
aMe couple through the window, and
the h ot he obtained from the house. He
!fo talks as composedly of the Shanklin
tragedy, telling of his careful avoidanee
of roads, the condition of the weather on
the fatal night, and the firing of the
h )iie after the terrible deed was done.
Wi,il Stickel ev'wces no evidence of in
sanity, he is certainly near akin to idiocv,
or ete t most pronounced degenerate.
By no reach of comprehension can he he

' it appears to think that s far ks the

seen he wore a gray uniform, and on it
were the stars of a brigadier-general.
Ten years after Bins settled on the
mountain his lite story came out, through
no fault of his. William Backer, a veteran
of the Union Army, who had occasion to

federate reports that Mermen Dins had
enlisted as a minor officer, soon after

At the outbreak of the war Bins was a
well-to-do p'anter in midd'e Georgia.
When he was in the army bis t wo chil

the sea, cutting a gap through Georgia
and leaving desolation behind, Bins'
hornevas one of the places of which
nothing remained but ashes. Mrs. Bins
had fled before the arrival of Sherman
and joined the refugees. Kxpoiriire and
hardship brought herto her death. When
he returned to bis plantation he found
the a-hes of his home, the graves of his
chil.Iren, anil nor them the grave of his j
wife, whom faithful slaves had carried
to the plantation acid buried. General

THE VICTIM OF
Thrilling Adventures of Captaia Dever
Sas Fbaxcisoo, Dec. ll.--Captain
IK-vereaox Shields, who returned on the
transport Hancock, haa been invalided
home on account of the most thrilling
adventures of the war in the Philippines.
Captain Shields and fifty-two men left
Panta Cror, on the island of Marindaque,
on September 11th last for the purpose
of reconnoitering. Two days later they
fell into an ambush and were fire! upon
by about 250 men with rifles, who were
supported by about 2000 men with bolos.
Captain Shields, telling of the engage
" I saw that it was impossible for us to
do anything bnt get out, and I gave the
order to retreat. I was twice wourded
and fell unconscious, bat soon recovered,
and then gave the order for the command
to fight Its way back to the station. I
told them as I was nothing but an im
pediment to them to leave me with a
man "torn the hospital corps and to gel
out. I dropped behind a rice stack acd
told the man to raise a white flig. The
itisnrrectos did not recognm the flag and
continued to fire at us. The men fought
their way back a short distance and were
surrounded and had to surrender or he
"After the insnrrccios came to me one
of them hegan robbing me and took all
my things. He tore a chain and locket
from my neck and tried to tar the rings
from my fingers. My hand was so swol
len hy the wound in the shoulder that
he con'd not get the rings oirand he was
juet g'ing to cut off the band when. I
made him understand that I could take
the rings off. After" be had finished
robbing another man he came and was
just going to eboot me, when I saw a
band and arm come forward and strike
up the gun.
"Immediately after the fight we were
kept ?n native hovels for twelve days,
and then we were started on a rur.rch
ver monntaiu, through dense forests
and across rivers, compelled to sleep in
mud and rain, and given only the dirtiest
water with which to wash our wounds.

VIEW OF RELATIONS
Five Cardinal Points Submitted hy
Minister Wn Address by the
Plenipotentiary of the Celestial
Empire to the Contemporav Club
Philadelphia, Dec. 12. The galleries
of the Art Club were crowded last night
by invited guests of the Contemporary
club to heai Minister Wo deliver an ad
dress entitled, "The Chinese View." Hej
was cordial! v received
In his address!
Mr. Wu dealt upon the five cardinal re
lations of mankind as seen bv t ie
Chinese nation. He drew many interest
ing as well as amusing comparisons be
tween the customs of his own and of the
American people. After speaking of the
great age of the Chinese nation, Minister
Wu said :
"Let us inquire into the cause, or
rather combination of caues, namely
the five cardinal relations of mankind.
That ie to say, rlrft, between govereigo
ministers and subjects; second, between
parent" and child ; third, between elder
and' vonnirer or between superior and
inferior ; fourth, the husband and wife,
ami lust but not least, fiiend ami friend.
In the first cte the attribute is benevo
lence on the part of the sovereign and
reatect on the part of the subject. In
t.'.o second relation the parent must be
kind and the child obedient. Between
the elder and :he younaer there must be
respect on the part of the latter. Con
cetii i.g the fourth relation, righteous
ness io the husband's attribute, while
submission is the duty of the wife. The
duty of friends is to be faithful and
The speaker expanded on each of the
6ve relations, giving the result of their
application in Chios, and his view of
corresponding returns in America. He
spoke particularly of the second reUtion,
saying that in America it wag ui'touiary
f r the srn to sit in the presence of the
, , . , , - . ..r '.
locularlv declared the minister, "I would
punch his head."
In conclusion Mr. Wu said :
"Although our civil association is not
perfect, yet it has stood the test of years
well and the natioti still exists. Of course
in many reeptct the customs and man
ners of your country and my country are
dillerent, but there are g-xwl point in
each. I think if each of Ms could learn
tbe others' good points and profit by
them it would lie well. Weoinst under
stand each other better, for much of the
present trouble has arisen from mis
understanding. What you think is
right we may think wrong. Therefore it
is important that we judge not from our
s'aoipoin', but from the other point of
view. In our country we are guided by
duty; in yours, love is the guiding
rrini ifle. I think we would he more,
if we ci.i'M strike a medium.
