point did the two stories differ. Shaw

officers next morning?" was asked.
"I hesitated because the sheriff had

arrested on account of the train wreck,
concerning the charges against them ;
but I had determined to tell as soon as I
got a chance. This chance didn't come
until the negro had repeated the con
fession to the detective. I snrely would
have told as soon as I got an opportunity

you?" was asked.
"I had been reading aloud," answered
Shaw, "about tbe diamond robbery in
Portland, and about the confession of
one of the thieves, when Kidd nervously
remarked : 'the-e's where all colored
men are weak.' The nervous condition
of the man, more than the remark itself,
struck me. Subsequently, over a game
of cards, Kidd asked me if I thought the
jailor would allow him to sleep in my
cell that night. I said 'certainly. I'll
ask bim.' We got permission and after
we had been locked in for the night I be
gan to read a magazine aloud when the
negro touched me on the leg and said,
'read no more. I've got something to
tell yon.' 'What is it?' I asked as I
closed tbe mage zinc. 'Those five men
are not guilty of that train wreck,'
answered tbe negro. '1 did it myself.'
'You surely don't mean tbat, said l.
'Yes Sir,' said tbe negro, I do.' 'Why
did you do it?' I asked. 'I didn't know
it would wreck tbe train; I suppose I
must bave been crazy,' answered tbe
negro, as be twitched and trembled as if
he wonld faint. 'Had you been drink
ing?' I asked. 'Some, not much.' 'Had
you any grievance againet tbe com
pany?' Couldn't say I had any worth
speaking ofwas the answer. Tbe negro
then went on to tell bow he first became
afraid when he was taken up to tbe
wreck, and Captain Nevins picked up a
nut off the tiack that was all covered
with grease and said : 'Here is the thing
that did the devilment.' 'I recognized
tbe nut,' said the negro, 'because I had
got my band greasy with it.' I asked
him where he got the nut, and be said :
'I carried it quite a little ways. It came
off a box car.' He said he bad four outs

track ten or twelve feet apart. 'Next
morning tbe negro atked for tbe sheriff
and after a few minutes talk with him
he ashed me what I thought they
would do with bim i( tbey found out
what he had done. I told him that pos
sibly they .might hang bim and maybe
he would get off with two or three years
in the penitentiary. Daring the morn
ing I pretended to tell his fortune and
told bim be was going to have lota of
trouble over a woman or something.
He anlwered nervously 'I believe that's
right.' Soon after, Dateotlve Reiley
oame to the jail and took tbe negro
After Shaw bad been takeo back to
tbe jail tbe negro was brought into tbe
sheriff's office and asked to be seated.
He was told that bis versiou of the crime
and tbe confession was wanted for pub
lication and was asked to state tbe exact
troth and nothiug elae. His answers to
tbe questions put to bim were as follow? :
"I first told Mr. Sbaw while we occu
pied tbe same cell Friday nigbt that I
put tbe nnt on the track. I made the
confession because I didn't want other
men to be punished when I knew tbey
were not guilty. I put tour nnts, all
told, on tbe track, three or four feet
apart. I wsan'tin my right senses. I
had been drinking. I got a plot of
liqeor at Umatlila and two pints more at
Arlington. I. drank it all before I pnt
tbe nnts on the track aod was hurrying
to The Dalles to boy more. I bad no
money hot I expected to get some when
I would raooh here. After tbe wreck
took place I was coming to town whoa I
was overtakes by an engine and caboose.
Tbe engine stopped when it overtook me
and a geatfoanna stuck bis head ot oi
the eaboote and poMtely said : !rep np
old man, and bave a ride.' When we
got to the depot Mr. Woad stepped op
to me and told me I was under arrest.
Mr. Alisby, who wa wiih him, pnt a
pair oi nippers on me and they brought
tne here and locked me in a private cell.
These men talked to me before Fridav
and charged me with having put tbe
nnts on tne track. Friday night before
I was locked up, I asked for thetn but
they didt.'t come. I wanted to confess
to them. I asked Mr. Shaw to sleep in
my cell Friday night oecuise I wanted!
to confess to him. He was tbe first man
I told tbat I pnt the nnts on the track. ;
Neat morning I asked to see Captain
Nevins because I wanted t find out ;
what the men that were taken to Port-
land had sworn against me. I wanted j
to confess to the captain. After a while j
Mr. Reiley came and took me in a back
room. He asked me some questions
about the wreck and then esid : 'You're
the cooi: that done it. You'd better
confess.' As be slid this he j imped
treat his chair, pnt bis hand to his hip I
pocket, drew ont a pietol and pointing it
at me said, 'If yon don't confess I'll
blow yonr mug off. It yon don't con
fess I'll take you to Portland and pnt
yon in tbe tank.' I don't know what he
meant by th tank. I told htm I had
confessed to Shaw in the jU. He then
look me out on the street and, after
wandering around for a while be took
me to the prosecuting attorney's office
where I repeated the confession that I
had made to Sbaw. When about half a
block from the attorney's office I told
Mr. Reiley that I had put the nuts on
the track. In the court room, and
again on .he street, Mr. Reiley told me
that if I wonld swear that the bov pnt
the nut on the track he would divide the
reward of ,000 with me and give me
The Chronicle tells these stories as
they were told to it. It has only to say
that the negro impresses one as a degen
