Carpenter "Coughs Up."
The letters convinced the sheriff
that Carpenter and his partner were
the two men he had tagged about the
city and went to Hay City, for when
Carpenter returned to the county the
Sheriff and .Mr. Heals met him at
.M older and the sheriff immediately
recognized him. Carpenter asked
Crenshaw if he was the sheriff of the
county and shook hands with him.
Heals was introduced to Carpenter,
and all three went into the depot,
where Carpenter "coughed up" the
plot he had entered into with White
and Worrall. They returned to this
city and commenced working on the
More Provisions Wanted.
Wednesday night of last week the
Sheriff and Carpenter went to Hay
City, the latter going to Wliite's
cabin and had a tajk with him, the
sheriff overheard the conversation.
They talked about more provisions,
as the supplies were running short
While there Carpenter made arrange'
menu to meet Worrall in his bed
room on Thursday night at 8 o'clock.
To Be Kidnapped On Way Home.
Worrall, White, and Carpenter met
as agreed,, and the sheriff was secret

This letter was to contain a blank
check on the Tillamook County
Hank, and Heals was to make it ouH
for $$00, ami Mrs. Heals was to th
at. planned in the letter, and another
letter was to have been slipped under
Worrell's dot r. stating that they had
kidnapped Heals whojtad put up
quite a fight.
Worrall Refuses to Take Money.
Saturday morning. Mrs. Heals went
to Worrell's office with the money,
but he refused to take it. They con
vened together for one hour and ten
minutes, it being planned to -arrest
Mr. Worrall with the money on him,
and Carpenter was to rusharin before
this-was done and demand Jart of the
money. This part of the story is bet
ter told in Worrell's confession. He
was immediately arrested by the
sheriff and locked up in the county
jail. White was also arrested on Sat
in day at his cabin at Hay City the
.same day. He had nearly $500.00 in
$10.00 gold pieces hid in his wood
shed, ami amongst other things fount!
there were two stamped envelopes
addressed to W 01 rail.
White Pleads Guilty.
On Monday evening White and
Worrall were ar.-.iicncd the former
indicted on two counts one for at
tempted kidnapping and the other for
threatening lo kill A. G. Heals. Wor
rail was indicted for atteinptedkidtn)
ping. White pleaded guilty to both
crimes and Judge Hclt immediately
sentenced him to I to 25 years in the
state penitentiary on the first count,
but the next morning changed this to
1 to i.V4 years as the indictment only
charged attempt kidnapping. On the
indictment of threatening to kilt
White was sentenced to 1 to 5 years,
to take effect following the comple
tion of the first sentence.
' Worrall asked time to plead, and
Tuesday evening Judge Belt gave
him until the next morning to do so.
Worrall is Sentenced.
y He pleaded not guilty Wednesday
morning apd the judge set the case
for trial for Monday, During the day
it was decided to change the plea to
that of guilty,' upon the under
standing that Worrall would tell the
court the wlnsle facts of the case,
which he did, There was profound
murder case nothing could liave been
trre solemn as the court passed an
indeterminate sentence of 1 to tj' j
yt-ar in the pcnittntlaiy on th pris

know the exact time, but possibly it
was in a few weeks, he came lu the
otftcc and talked about his children
and their adoption by Mr. Arthur
Heal, two children, twins I believe, a
boy and a girt. He wanted nte to
look up the adoption papers and sec
ii luty were legal Slating at the lime,
without going tn'.- details, that he
Wanted to get possession of the chil
dren or wanted the children back, I
believe was his language. I told him
I would look into the matter for him
which 1 afterwards did, and advised
him on his rctun to the office after
war. , that as f;ti as I could see, the
pap- rs were leg. I, and 1 didn't sec
anv chance tl.roagh a law suit to ob
tain possesion of the children. I
ihn.k that w ill thai was said at
tha; time. exct,t he possibly said
something about "going to have tficm
children," he talkctl about them con
stantly, and shortly after that, I don't
remember how long, he came to the
ot'fitc one day and said he wanted to
see me privately, and wanted to know
if he could trust me, and I told him to
go ahead and talk, that what was said
in the office was considered private
always. He said in that conversation,
it was a mania with htm, he thought
of nothing else, and dreamt ofnoth
ing else but getting possession of
those children, that he was goinc to, .
tied out as he worked on the section
through the day he thought of them,
and as he slept alone in his little
home at night I' talked with him and
told him they had a good home, and
he said thai he had no objection to
Mrs. Heals, but lie did object to Ar
thur Heals, without going into details
he told me why he didn't want Arthur
Heals to have them, he claimed that
there had been fraud perpetrated on
him and one thing another. Well I
don t know he came up to sec me
several times. We talked back and
forth, and he told me all his plans.
Told rue what they were. He was go
ing to get the children.. Said he had
watched them, and the residence, ami
had an opportunity on one occasion
to "grab" one of them, as he said,
but wanted them both. Well, gradual
ly one thing led to another, and we
talked back and forth for about a
-no nth. On one occasion he came up,
be had a perfect mania for getting
them. Said he was going to get them,
no matter what stood tn the way. I
reasoned with him, and told him he
better go back home, that they had a
rood home, that Mrs. Heals would
akerfrare ot themf He went away, and
c:.tne back again, '1 don't know how
lone afterwards, i.i week or so. And
said he was going to get somebody
e'se to help him get the children. I
:hink at one time he wanted Arthur
Heals or somebody to buy his home
at H:i City so he would have enough
t.i get out of the country be said he
didn't have touch money. 1 .don't
know as he ever told me how much,
think possibly several hundred dol
lars was all the money he had, and
then he developed to me his whole

lion. It was planned to kidnap Deals keenly feeling the disgrace " he had
on his way home and take bint back brought upon himself. Had it been a
the plan attempted to be carried out.
I tlon t know why. I have got no ex
cuse to make for it, only possibly my
weakened condition mentally, 1 al
lowed myself to be drifted along. It
couldn't have been the money prop
osition, because all the money he ever
gave me was $55 or $60 to cover two
trips to Portland I made for him
trying to locate somebody to help
him get the children. I told him , I
wouldn't be a party to it, that is tak
ing an active part, and the last time
I went up there was an ad put in the
paper. The first time. 1 bail a con
ference with several people I rtn
across there through agencies, that
might come down and assist him in
his plan to get the children. A gentle
man bv the name of Carpenter I
think, if I remember right, answered
the ad. in the paper amongst a niun
her of others. I talked with .Carpenter
and told him 1 didnt' know all the de
tails of the plan, but there was a man
down here, I don't think I said what
his name was, 1 don't know him imt
a man down here wanted to employ a
couple of men to assist him. Carpen
ter agreed to accept the emplovment.
iie came to Tillamook with me. Met
White here, in town, up at my office
if I remember, and wc talked the mat
ter over. The. first part of the talk I
introduced him to White, said "Mr.
