A romarkixblo story of attempfed
swindling , involving n cold-blooded
murder , was told to a World reporter
yesterday at the olllco of the Mutual
' Lifo Insur.tiKio Company. The prm- actor in it has not yet btun ap-
' nrohcndfd , but the tlotcctivea are on
'his track and it is expected that ho
will bo captured very coon. All the
documents in this oaring aclieme , the
photographs of the adorn and 'heir
victim , the letters which his and they
wrote , are in the pojseettion of the
company and wercaoen yesterday by
the reporter. The story , briefly told ,
'is as follows :
In December , 1878 , John AV. Hill
man made applications for insurance
on his lifo , at Law ranee , Kansas , in
the offices of the Mutual , the New
York and Connecticut Mutual Life
Inauranco Companies. The applica
tions were forwarded to the home of-
.ficea , and in the same month ho was
insured for $25,000 810,000 in each
ot the Now York companion , and
$5,000 in thu Connecticut
Ho paid the first quarterly premium
to thu three companies , and thun
started for the far cattle ranch. A
companion started with him , named
John II. Brown. While crossing the
prairies they mot a young man named
Frederick A. Waltrtrs , whom Hiliman
hired to accompany them to tend cattle
tlo on the ranch. On the evening of
March 10th , 1879 , the party camped
n few miles outsidoof Medicine Lodge ,
Barbour County , Kansas. The fol
lowing morning Brown came into the
villiige ! and announced that IIH | friend
Ilillman had buon accidentally chot
while removing some goods from their
wngon. A coroner's jury was impan
elled and Vent out to the camping
ground , when Brown narrated the
story of the shooting. Ho nnid that
Hiliman and himeelf bad boon travel
ing together , without any companion ,
in search of a cattle ranch. A verdict
o'f accidental death was rendered , and
the body WIH buried in the cL'inotery
Of Medicine Lodgo. Valteis had dis
appeared , and nothing waa hoard of
When the news of llillman'a death
was brought to his friondu in Law
rence they refused to believe the
story of accidental shooting , arid had
the body exhumed and brought home.
Another inquest was hold , and an ex
amination of the body revealed the
fact that it Has not that of Ilillman.
The insurance companies agreed to
act together , and sift the matter lethe
the bottom. They believe that Hill-
irian was still alive , and that he and
Brown had procured thu corpse for
the purpose of securing the insurance.
The dead man was not not like Hillman -
man ; his hair was curly , and came
down around bin face , while Hillman's
was quite straight , and was brushed *
back from his forehead. The dead
man hud1 the usual number of teeth ,
while Hiliman was known to have ono
mitsing. The dead man had rocontlv
been vaccinated , and the scar on hfs
arm was quite- fresh and sore. Hillman -
man had alno boon vaccinated just be
fore starting OH hia trip , but the doc
tors certified that the scar on Hill-
man's body must have become cica
trized by that time. The dead body
was taller than Hillmnn's , and it
remembered that Hiliman had tried
to 'get his height falsified while under
going the medical examination in the
insurance companies' ofiicea. The fatal -
tal- wound also -waa one which could
hardly have been intlicted in the man
ner described by Brown , and thu lat
ter had become very much confusud
at the inquest in narrating the details
of the occuranco. Altogether it was
evident that thu dead man was not
Hiliman , but who he was remained a
A photograph of the corpse was tak
en and Bunt to various placoe. It WOH
firat recognized nt Fort Madiaon ,
Iowa , u.i that o * Frederick A , Wal
ters , the man who joined Brown and
Hiliman on their supposed search
for u cnttlo ranch. When the photo
graph waa shown to Walters' father
bo at once rououii'zod thu features as
thosu ot his son. Ho took it homo
with himunduuuidontully dropping it
from his pocket , it waff seen by his
wife and daughter , who at once burat
into tears. Several letters of Walters
woru also found. Ono to his RWtiut-
heart , in Fort Madinou , whom ho ad-
drusHud us "Dearoat Alvlri , " stated
that lui xvim going weat with a man
named Ilillman , who owned a largo
cattle ranch , and who hnd agreed to
give him very liberal wages for bis
services. Hu told her to remain con
stant to him and ho would return in a
few months with enough money for
their marriage. Walters' brother de-
Dcribcd thu body before HColng it , and
said thuro waa a mole about thu si/o
of u pua on thu luft lug. Thu body
answered thu doHcrintion , oven to the
small mole. This lott no doubt that
bo had boon -killed by Uillni'tu and
Brown aa a substitute tor the former's
body in order to secure the insurance
Brown was arrested and madu a full
confession in Septouibur , 187' ) , in
'Plat/o / County , Bio. , saying that the
pn'ccodinc wu. < part of a ucliemo ti
defraud the insurance companies ,
He Raid that ho was acquainted witli
all the parties to the cnemo , Thuj
woru Hiliman , Luvi Baldwin Hill
man's father-in-law Mr . Baldwin
and liimaolf. Baldwin furnished tlu
money in the operation. Hillmar
waa to insure his life for 915,000 , and
Brown and he were lo find u body tc
palm off on the insurance companies ,
It was afterward ducidcd to have Hill
man insured for $25,000. "Wo Imc
no definite plan for the finding of i
body , but supposed we could caailj
got QUO. Wo made a trip in thu hitter
tor part of December , 1878 , fron
Wichita to the wcat duiing a heav ;
snow-storm , hoping to find eomu on
fro/eu to death on thu road , but dii
not succeed. Ilillman and I wur
alone oil , the trip. Ou 'tho Oth c

On tins tup wo fell in with Walters ,
whom Hilltium hircil to work on n
ranch. Hillmaii' taul tlml Walters

Humnco cotnpanicfl. I told him the
body wnn not like hia , nnd thnt it

Ilillmnn liked thu idut , however , mid
p.iitiB iNcro taken that not moro than
I wo of u.i should bo seen around the
wagon. Olio of us wai alwiiya iinhlo.
"Ilillmnn hud been vaccinated bo-

Wnlti'M consented , and Ilillman vac
cinated him with a penknife , Baking
the matter from his own arm , 'J'his '
was relied upon to help oatahliHh the
identity of Walters ai Uiilinan. Hillman -
man aim ; traded off his clothes with
Walters , llu gave Wallum a lot of
underclothing , and ( bun traded his
outside gannuntfl. Walters was an
onnygoing stupid sort of follow , Ho
imid that bin name was Horkloy or
Burcholl , Wo always called him Joe.
I never madu free with him after Hillman -
man tiad inado his .mind up to kill
him. I did not want to bccomo inti
mate with him. On the evening wo
( , 'ot to camp , on the Kith of March ,
Joe was flitting by the tiro. I was at
the wagon , trying to got out noino
things , when I heard n report , and
saw tlio man was shot. Ilillman
dragged the body to ono aide , and put
ono ot his own books in the dead
man's pocket. Ho then took Joo'a va-
line and went off. Ho was about
to tell mo where he was
going , but I told him I did not
want to know , as I could find
out > eon enough. I have never hoard
of him since. Mm. Hiliman bus paid
to mo flinco then that aim know whcro
he WIIH , I alHo hoard that ho was
travelling undur the name of William
MOHA. Baldwin and his \vifo knew all
about tliiw. "
Subneiiuontly Brown uocapod and
retracted thin confcsmon , saying that
he had bncit induced to make it by
the lawyers for the inauranco compa
nies , who , he said , had told him that
it ho would make it , and is Mrs. Hillman -
man would deliver the policies to the
companion , ho would bo promittcd to
[ ; o free. .Alr.i. Hiliman did nurrundur
the policies , and confessed that she
know her hiiHband was alivo. The
H'aldwitm , Mra. Hiliman and Drown
