Failure to Search Me Put Me oh Scdff'oldf and
Sheriff in His GraVe,' Says Man Who is to
Hang Friday Believes Rulie Johnson Hid
in Tree Until Night.
"If I had had murder in
Sheriff Richards at the time Johnson and I escaped from the
jail at Albany," said George Parker, sentenced , to be hanged
at the state penitentiary next Friday, when he talked with a
newspaperman yesterday. "Instead, when Richards dis
covered me I went back into -the jail because I liked
Parker exDlained that he and the sheriff were both un
armed at the time, but that "he
with which he could have struck Richards.
Parker and Rulie Johnson, who were indicted : for the
murder' of Sheriff Dunlap of Albany, both escaped jail shortly
before the trial. Johnson has never been found. :
Parker,-however, was caught just outside the. jail. Their
plan, he says; was to hide in a large tree with dense foliage
that stood near the prison, and remain there until night. He
thinks this was done by Johnson. He says all he knows about
Johnson is that he is supposed to have a minor crime against
him in another county.
Parker was .conTicted of first
degree murder. The . crime was
committed when Sheriff Dunla
and another officer named Lil
lard arrested the two on the road
a short distance out of Albany
for the theft of an automobile. In
telling bis story of the crime yes
terday Parker averred .that he
shot Dunlap In self defense and in
the heat of passion because, he
says, the sheriff was abusing him.
He declares that the sheriff fired
a bullet through his hat before he
himself shot the sheriff.
"I regret that the sheriff failed
to search me and take my gun
away," said . Parker, "for by his
negligence he placed me on the
scaffold and himself In the graye."
Parker refuses, to tell his real
name for the present. He says be
feels Tery kindly toward Sheriff
Richards and Officer Llllard of Al
bany, and Warden and Mrs. John
son S. Smith of the state prison. '
Parker, who ' professed no re
ligious faith when he came to the
state prison yesterday accepted the
Catholic faith and was baptised. '

Circumstances surrounding the
reported finding last week by Lee
Houser, a laborer, of a tin box
containing, according to Houser,
$10,000 In gold and about .3 100,
000 in bills, became enveloped In
a cloud of mystery today. ;
Houser -was ' reported ; to have
dug up the box while working on
the Brownsville-Westerton- road
in this vicinity. Saturday, for. the
first time in his life, it was said,
Houser was away from home a full
2 4 hours. Today . he was - not on
his job and could not be located. '
, Members ' of the man's , family
today denied absolutely . that - any
money had been found by him and
Miss Esther ' Houser, a. sister.- of
Lee; declared the whole" story was
a hoax framed by her brother, a
practical joker. .
' "Lee came home last Thursday
afternoon," MJss Houser said,
"and laughingly said 'I've found
some money.' .
"Here's what happened, that Is,
this 1s what he. told one of us. .
"I . gave him a dollar to buy
some butter as he returned from
work. He had several small pieces
of change in his pocket.' When
hje was digging, his pick brought
up a tin box. He dropped some
of his coins Into the box and called
to the other workmen, 'I've found
a box of money.'. .
"Lee made it worse by not tell
ing how much. he found. When
asked, he answered, 'Oh, about
310,000,' and everybody believed
him. Then the yarn spread all
over the country. I want it strict
ly understood that, he did not
bring one cent home."
The money reported found,- It
was believed, might have been
that which Grover C. Bergdoll,
the draft evader. Is supposed to
have burled In this vicinity. ' 1

Dublin Polls Quiet Almost to
Dullness; Public. Little.
DUBLIN, Aug. 27. (By the
Associated : Press). The elector
ate of the Irish ' Free State went
to the polla today in twenty-nine
constituencies tor the election of
the 150 members of the new Dall
Elre&nn, and up' to the last the
elections, maintained the unique
character of the previous cam
paign and were quiet and orderly
almost to dullness. -This was
particularly the 'case 'In Dublin,
while reports -from the provinces
tell a similar tale with trifling
exceptions in a few cases, .where
enthusiasm outran discretion and
caused slight disturbances.
The universal verdict Is that
this has been the . quietest elec
tion in Irish history. There was
no excitement, no .laughter at the
polling booths In Dublin nor In
any of the waiting lines of voters.
Judging from appearances, the
public Is taking only small inter
est in the affair and the polling
has not been heavy.
