Miss"uri , ivas tbe scene of a series of
murders , scarcely c uiled in tbe an-

12il6 feet ; there were no rooms on'y

Such was the borne and sur
roundings if the infamous Bender
familyjConsisting of old Juhn Bender ,
his wife Kita , mid their eon John
and his TCjfe. It was generally n
dcnto din the neighborhood that the
Benders'was hoadijuatt _ ra for hi no
thieves mid h rd chsrdc'ors , and at
length BUFp-eions of even wortc character
actor were an.nserf.
In 1873 , Dr. York , of Kansas , a
brother of SUto Senator York , rays-
terion ly disappeared while on a busi
ness trip through the country , end nn (
inves ijatnui of tiio mystery by the
lattir rciultcd it- the unuarthing of a
private bur ; ing ground on the Bender
T7hore d' dead b d.cs including
pl-ici , a ' ECU ( ,
cluding that of the mituinu Dr. York ,
were uifiutrrred. The Benders hud
fled a few days previously havai. ; been
alarmed by the firou of one of their
Visitors to h > ve the hnuao searched ,
and eluding all smirch were supposed
to have disappeared forever. A few
days nines it uii announced that an
njjed couple had been arrested by
Sheriff Greg. ; , of Dudje ; county , on
the supposition that they were the in
iquitous old John Bender and bis
wifo. They were taken to ja 1 and j
locked vp in separate cells and search
begun fur the rest of the family , mid
to be pissing through the state by a
d fft-rent rend , and tor proof to estab
lish the Identity of t ie prisoners.
Although the news of the ar
v rest of the Bendera was re
ceived with considerable increduli
ty , as iium ° roui persons had been ur-
rested and diseased at intervals for
several years , yet e chain of evidence
was constructed link by link which

Thtro are other circumstances point-
in ; ; to the probabdi y that this is no
ewe of mistaken indenty and tint in
addition to furthering the ends of
justice , somebody will fall heir to
about § 25,000 the amount of out
standing rewards , $11,000 of which is
on old man Bender alone.
Sir. Dan Congdon who wai the
prime mover and leading actor in the
arrest of the allcgod John Bender and 1
his wife culled at this office Sunday
morning , and furnished us the follow
ing particulars of the capture which
wo will give in. bis own language :
About dark on the nichtofJuly
20th an old man and an old woman
citne to my house at llichland , Colfax
county , and asked for lodgings and
something to cat. 'It you haven't
any supper for us , ' said hey , 'give ui
v plsce to 1 o down. " I showed them
out to the hay-mow. When I opened ,
the barn door the old woman kind of i
pulled back , as if afraid. I asked hdr
what sha was afraid of. She said
thtra might be eome trap or hole
there. I left them and my neichbnr ,
Wra. Herndon , who lives about 100
yards from the barn , came around
shortly and took them home with him.
He gave tbom supper and broakfaet
next morning.
After supper at Herndpn's , the ola
man said , 'By the way , is there any
talk of this Bend < * r murder now ? '
Hprndon said 'No , not much.1 The
old man ra'd'lined to know them
Benders ; stopped at their house many
a time. They killed one mm and
wife and buried their two children
alive. ' In saying they , the old man ,
by a slip of the tongue , stidtrv. Then
he went on to describe the canvas
wall , from behind which the fital
blow was BtrucU , and how nice Kate
used to do the woik. Then he talked
about the California ! ! who came there
in the evening and asked what nmellcd
so. Kato said it was roaat meat. If
ho had stayed there that night ho
would have been done for. But he
gave them a warning by threatening
to have the house searched. If ho
hadn't threatened they would all have
teen captured in the honso. '
The old map said that he
rent south with the Benders
that night to the railroad , where ho
and the Benders parted. Next day
when I heard this story I started af
ter them and to make a sure thing
I went for Sheriff Gregg , of Fremont ,
knowing he had the sand iu him. We
lef Fremont at 10 o'clock the night of
the2l6t. Thinking I'd find them at
Sogera' Siding we got off there ,
56arejed. ell around thai eid& trsck
trjriout euopefs. Took ths nwt train
for Schuyler and got there at 3:45 in
the morning of the 22d. Hir-da
livery rg of Jim Hughes and got
track of tne party at old man Dixou'a
grove. Wo patsed them by there
and went on to North B nd. Drove
back to Mr. Y < rk's. We were going
to make thearreat there , but Itt them
walk on aga n. Took tnera un and
gave them a r de it'lo ' Ni.rt Bend. On
the way the old mail CTai curmg iha

: our teims iu the
b-rn th < fo. TLey
sat al t le whiic in trout of D Unn te
Purceh'a stire and then we vr lKed
down the track and thy walked down
the road to the eli ranch , forty rods
from town.Vemarhtd out on the
road and commanded old
man Bender to tsrow up his
hinds. Sheriff Grfgg put irons on
him and the old woman. He said he
waa not old Bender r.nd denied hav
ing said anything about She Bendera
at Kichland or ever kn > wn them , and
said he never was in Kansas in his
life. When we sskcd his name he
turned around to his wife and askoi
'whats that ? ' She sdd 'McGregor' and
giid she , * uvy name is Nsncy Me-
"We brought them down to Fremont
that day , and the next day at Schny-
ler. I heard there were throe more
in company with them , supposed to
bo young John Bender , Kate Bender
and a young woman about 22 , whose
name is unknown. I didn't g < vo tba :
any credit until I went and investi
gated the matter by secreting myself ,
f i air davs after the at rest , in the jail
where I heard the ft llowing conver
sation between the old uitui and old
woman :
Old Man Oh Kate !

Old Man Bender bo d d ! lam

bo a bad job if they took us to Kan

! At this juncture I entered the cell
to interview Kate and told herl would
start for Kansas the next day and
that I was afraid of being mobbed in
Kansas City.
Kate Do you think there is any
danger going through Kansas Citj ?
I eaid there was.
KateI'd like to wait for a letter
from Illinois.
Old Man ( to Kate ) You are the
one nt fault for telling so much at

Kate No , you gave yourself away.
You done all the Inking yourself.
Old Alan You told something.
Kte-yl told them nothing ; I nor-
er told lie in my life.
Old Man I know you are going
back on me , but never mind. You
told him you wanted lo co to Illinois. 1e

On Thursday after getting a meanro
detention of young John Bender ,
Kate and the other woman. I started
for Omaha. I went to the ferry and
the ferryman told me ho had seen
such an outfit cross at 11 o'clock
Thursday , answering all the descrip
tions except having four or five
children. To make sure about the
children , I went back to Fremont
that night and tried to find Sheriff
Gregg but could not find him. I en
tered the jail and told Bender , I had
Kate and John arrested at Omaha
and , by the way , I said , to the old
man , how many children has this
Kate bad. ' The old man said four.
Said I to the old man , Kate says that
