offenses of this kind In Indiana ? Does
the death penalty exist there ? "
"Never mind about the penalty ,
Rathbun , " said Captain Sullivan ,
"what we are Interested in is the
name of the dead man. "
For a moment Rathbun looked at
the group of faces before him and
then he said : "You are on the right
track. Goodman is the name of the
dead man. I met him in front of the
Salvation Army hotel and determined
to keep him drunk for several days
K and then fix him. "
Here he stopped and then said :
"If I should make a confession It
would be printed in the papers and
would turn the people against me. "
He then lapsed into a sullen si
lence , bnt finally said : "I admit
everything except that I killed Good
man. I meant to kill him and kept
him drunk for the purpose , but he
died of alcoholism , and I was not
forced to make way with him. "

\ having given Goodman laudanum ,
and said ho would have made Use of
chloroform. He then refused to go
back to Indiana without requisition
papers. *
