finys that T. F. Mcllrlde, a convict at
tho prison, received from .Jackson coun

fession, showing him to bo one of tho
most high-handed murderers in tho
country. His confession was mado to

October 8, and in it ho rotated tlio mur
der of twu olllecrs and a woman at Ge

Hock, Nub. Mcllrlde says his right
name iu George Mullock, and that ho
was born of respectable people who
havo resided in Geneva since 1871. Ho
Is thirty-three years old, and claims to
havo confessed because his conscience
bothered him, and ho Is anxious to be
punished for his many crimes.
It is believed Guide Hock, Neb., hns
been confused In the above with Table
Hock. There Is no known record of n
murder of a policeman at Guide Hock,
but at Tublo Hock, something ovur a
year ago, the marshal was shot and
killed by an unknown man whom he
was trying to arrest.

jc worded to prepare tho publio for

ieneral Ytilo has been compelled to

at Dundee because Ids force is too
