. A DIAR0LICAL MURDER.
-On Tuesday last, August, 14th, & most 4
attrocious murder was committed a few
miles south-Ves't of this city. The sus
pected parties were arrested two ia the
city on Wednesday morning, and the one
on Wednesday night in Iowa. . . "
On Thursday rnorninjf "after the ar-
rest of Dirck was, known, some ,500 or
600 persons asseembled at "the , Court
House, to. .hang, the murderer. After
earnest soeecbes- by several leading bit-"
izens against taking summary vengence,
a motion was made and carried to" organ
ize a People's Court, and thereupon D.
J, McCann was elected President, and
J. D. Lauer,', Clerk. The Court .then
adjourned to the City Park, and com
pleted the organization by 'empannelling
a jury of twelve of t the most prominent
ci'.izensof the city and county, viz;'
1Iessrs. El .' Reed; John Heath', '"' W-;
M. Hicklin, Gko. Hawke,. NflL.Sirnp-'
son, John B. Becnot, Wra.' T.' C. " Cren
sh.iw, Birney Jobnsbn, Rfcbard Justice,"
Robert Hawk and F.' Templiri; for the
true and impartial trial of Caspar Dircks
for wilful murder, and Sebastian Detch
& Richard P.Ford, accessories thereto.
O. P. Mason vas chosen for the pros,
ecution.and Wra McLennan volunteered
for the defenca.
n The Jury( being ri sworn , ia, a, list of
witnesses,oa both sides were , made out,
and the parties brought into court ; and
then after the trial commenced, every
thing was conducted as nearly in accor
daLce with legal form as the circumstan
. -The "evidence ehows that. Birck has
been in the city about, two weeks, that
Ford and Deitch canie in from Denver
about five weeks ago; that the first, and
!ast two became acquainted at the Penn.v
sylyania House, w"hereall three boarded;
that they were engaged, two or hree
tinies together in hunting lost cattle ; that
upon one or all of these .expeditions
Dircks, proposed that they go. into . part
nershid in stealing, stock, and that they
did decide to steal one . herd of ahout
GO Lead, some ten . days . ago a . plan
which was frustrated, by the removal of
the cattle, that upon Saturday last a
plan was laid to steal another herd
some thirty, in .number . belonging to
Thomas Hamilton", living near. Bebout's
fartri, some five ; miles south-west from
town. ; Mr. Ray, a cattle dealer in . the
city, was on Saturday approached by
Dirckst' who. offered to sell him .a herd,
and Mr. Ray , made a part promise to
buy Dirck's cattle if they suited, him. .
On Monday, Deitch; Went Across the riv-
er and sold ahorse. , and bought t.some J
6heep .On Tuesday morning about, 10
o'clock,; Dirck vvent;lQ Hamilton's house,
and told the boyt William, Henry , (aged
11 years) that, he would give him, S5 to
go and jjet a yokei of cattle some place
below Rock . Creek, and;drive tberp with,
the herd until celt and . Dire k .and
the boy went ,cjT, together. At Koon
D.i.rck(or as every .one calls, him 'Cash,') J
came in : town, his , horse covered with
foam, ;and himself,, apparently . under
great excitement.fid, .foujadj Ford, tell-j

he turned around to come back Dirck

and.had his whiskers dyed.ot ;a.rjponey

So for as we have said nothing: about
the tilling ' -.The boy Wm. Henry Harri
il ton' who went wftb i Di rck, to . hun Vi th 0
lost cattle waslhe victim.-1 His body was
found on Wednesday nsorbingi-in' a pond
that nerders-liad madd wbathe ia' in 'a
sloogh'; with one bullet. bole in the light
eye neil 'the-' nostril; and ' another a few
inches atid jast in front of the" right ami'.
Hishlovbes, pants, shirt and-hat were'
found in: a deep wash pit i the tall
-gf&'ss, SDm5 thirty steps below thspond.'1
It is EupposeJ thil-'h '- Had - gefle - into
bathe, and was snt rhile ip-'.iha water,
llis clotheswere w'here no body would
have put.thera while merely bathing. .
-.There was no direct testimony, osaow
that Dirck shot' the boyV but the state
ments of the prisoners themselves ' were
all to-effect that they had agreed that
the 14 boy should :be gqt out of the way,'
whea tbe herd . were diien to town ;
and tbe facts that no one was with' the boy
after leaving the house with Dirck' ! bat
him, that do one else was- 'seen' ia the
neighborhood during .the forenooa, " and
that a pistol or ,511a shot was heard about
the time warrantfcjd.ihe.belief that Dirck
did the killing shortly before 11 o'clock.
' Ford corroborated all the'testijiony in
regard to the plank for stealing the cattle
and the division of iha proceed swdf , tbe
sale; and declared they had agreed that
'the boy should be got out of the way" :
denying, however; that any one had pro
posed killing him.- 3 ' .' - ' j-'
Dirck was allowed to stale that he-did
lay the. plan for. stealing lhestpck, -hat
the other. two were equally guilty .with
him, ani were to rf ceivd equalsfiaras of
the money'; but he denied killing the boy
and said he 'supposed that s the - boy .'got
drowned and I that; fsh and'turtUs thad
mac'b the. wounds. pu h:i body.;. .-,;
. Ou Deitch's behalf he stated "himself
that he had rejected'the proposal's 'made
to him by Dirck and Ford ;-and thai he
had nothing whatever io do with the late
transaction. Several witnesses sworn to
Ditch's good chaf a,ct$r,; ;Qpd Mr..Sherer.
said that he had known him from. child
hood, that he had recently been with him
to Denver and back-; and that by his ad
vice Duchdid on : Saturday:andl Sunday
nights last. refused .to go in with the oth
er two cu the cattle stealing .scheme.
The testimony of others reliezed Diitch'
of compliciyi.h" the murder, and -'some-'
that he knewwhat was going on..u-.z;' ' -:
After the examination of witnesses the
councel on each sida , reviewed the evi
dence, and'thej' case went to the jury. '
The jury after retiring for consultation
returned and brought in a verdict of wilt
ful murder against Casper Dirck,-qncl re
commended that Sebastian Dietch snd
Rich, P.. Ford be, remanded to jail, for
further trial before the District Couri.
A proposition was then rn'ado to ''bang
Dirck imraediatly ; but upon: the xequ.st
of many citizens, a respite was granted
until 6 o'clock, p. ra., and at 1-2 past. "w0
the prisoners were taken to the cage in
tne uourt xiouse. - :
' Workmen immediately commenced the
erection of' a1 scaffold on the Conrt House.'
square,. and preparations were: made for
the awful finale. ,
Rev. H..T. Davis, of the Methodist
Church attended the prisoner in his: cell
and gave-him the last consolatiuas that
religion can offer. Dirck , made ay-will
leaving SS,000 to Ellen Henderson, , and
some 2 or 3 000 to his brother.
' . At sii o'clock, the prisoner was brought
forth, and placed upon -ine platform and
a prayer was offered by Rev Mr. Davis.
Dirck then said taking hold of the noose,
holding as 1 do by, this rope which js to
send me.to eternity, I declareMhat T am
ffuiltv of the'larc:env, but cf murder I am
not." ' He was afterwards asked several
times if he knew who killed ihe boy.'.) He-
replied that he did . not. , He then ' said
"may God have mercy on my scu!" and
the drop fell. He struggled a few min
