taUment msds by the boys will come
this sfternoon, when they will bo given
aa opportunity I verify the affldavlte
they bav mad by leading the officers
nd a chosen party over th rout they
say they followed when they went wltb
Holmberg to tb scene of the murder,
expecting to profit by robberle they
bad lacked aerv to oommlt In Portland.
Th boy say they can point out
where they bid la tb brush near th
Hill bom at Ardenwald In the late af
ternoon.of Jun I and tb following
night up ta tb time they started out
1th Holmberg, supposedly to rob . a
farmhouse. They aay they ean. point
out where they built a fire after dark
to cook supper, and wber they waited
at th rear of tb uumbl horn whli
th lives of four persona wars being
beaten out wltb an ax and th victim
outraged. , . ,
On the other band, tb test will b
applied to tb story told by Holmberg.
who denies hs was eaver at Ardnwsld,
says bs never met Harry Howard un
til flv days sgo, met Jimmy . Haw
kins at Kennewlck. Wash., about two
months sgo, and during th month of
Jun was employed either at Spragu-.
Wash., or Houser Junction, Idaho.
It will be comparatively easy to trace
out these statements. If Holmberg is .
telling the truth, bis alibi in complete.
Ths boys say "ha la lying Ilk a dog."
Jimmy aya all three of them passed
through Kennewlck about th tlm stated
by Holmberg. Both boys ssy they met
Holmberg the first tlm about May 27
at th Everett hotel In Portland, while -.
they were "bumming around" together. .
If Holmberg story proves untrue
and tho Uoys follow . up the detailed
story they bav told by pointing out
th road they took, and th place they
stopped, th officers believe they- have a
oertaln case against the suspect',,
.'V-Wot Certain of atV-'',;' f
Th boys ar somewhst hasy in their
statements as to the dates they came to
Portland and as to when they met each
other, but they have been so long "on
the road." and date meant so little to .
them that thia Is not considered very
material. Their story also falls to tell
of the ax used to commit the murder,
which was stolen from the house of a
neighbor' of the Hill family, about one
fourth mile ' awsy., ; vy ; .
It is Dosslble. say ths bovs. that
Holmberg . went- out and stole the ax
while they were getting supper, as h
was absent for- five minutes or ion t-
er, and they think he visited some other
house in the ' neighborhood while he -
was prospecting the ground. But thry
saw no ax.
; Kay Have Rod Ax. ti
When 'Holmberg went to the houso. '
they say; he carried a bundle,- but it
was not long enough to contain an
ax., One theory Is that be could have
concealed the ax under his , Coat an
other that when he stole th ax he
secreted it near the Hill homo and toolc
It from the , secret place after sending
tho'boys to the rear of the -house to
wait. for him. "
Evidence at, the scene of; th ertme
Indicated that the murderer spent soma
tlm In the bouae. Ths story of - t'i
boys agrees with this theory. They hai
no mean of telling time, but believe
they Waited half or three quartrra of
an hour for. him. The boys say thev
believe the crime ! was committed be
tween 1 and 4 o'clock In the mrr in ,
which also sgrees with : the theories
heretofore worked out.
When Holmberg came from
house, say the boy s, his clot ring
