Confessing to the wanton and deliber

In a lonely cabin in the woods near Ten

years, was taken .into custody this
morning at Fifth and Stark streets by
Detectives Baty. and Hellyvir of the local

"Through his lack of discretion in

prisoner admits his Identity.
Johansen and Mathleson were em

large holdings near Ten Strike and
Jointly occupied a cabin in the woods
near that place. According to the
story told to Deputy Sheriff Bailey,
Mathleson shot his friend with a re
volver of heavy caliber while the latter
lay asleep in his bed and then to make
sure that life was extinct beat the body
of his victim to a jelly. ;
Dragging the remains of his victim
to a nearby lake, Mathleson cut a hole
in the Ice and dropped the dead man
Into the jvater after removing his
clothes to make the body small enough
to force through the opening.
With a check for 1400 which Johansen
had recently received from Denmark and
