SIOUX FALLS. S. D., Oct. 15.-(Spec!al.)
While returning home after marketing a
quantity of grain W. H. Llllle, a prominent
farmer of Jerauld county, had an Interest
ing experience with a holdup man, who, In
his way, was on of the most modeBt of
holdup men. It was dark when Ullte
started home with the proceeds from the
grain carefully tucked In his Inside pocket.
At the darkest and most lonely point on
the road the holdup man suddenly sprang
from a place of concealment and seized the
bridles of Llllle's horses. The animals
were brought to a full stop and the holdup
man started toward the wagon with the
demand that Llllle hand over to htm one
half the cash received In payment for the
grain. Why he did not demand the whole
of It Is a mystery. Llllle, as toon as lie
noted that the holdup man had released
his hold of the horses, suddenly slashed
them with the whip. The animals, smart
ing under the sting of the whip, sprang
forward and after a hard run Ll'.lie suc
ceeded in making his escape from the at
Thomas Johnson, the negro arrested by
the police, believing him to be the murderer
of Henry R. Frankland of Chicago, who
was found In the yards at Union station
with his throat cut and his pockets rifled
Wednesday night, will be tried for the
A coroner's jury, after an inquest held
Friday afternoon, recommended that John
son be held for the killing. A warrant
charging Johnson with the murder will be
filed at once, but the date of the prisoner's
arraignment has not been set.
Johnson stands obdurate against the ef
forts of the detective department to draw
a confession from him. He adheres to his
original story and In the face of over
whelming circumstantial evidence adduced
at the Inquest sat unmoved and calm.
The testimony of witnesses at the Inquest
established the fact that Johnson was In
company with Frankland, the murdered
man, within a quarter of an hour of the
time that the crime was commuted, and
that the negro less than two hours after
the killing was In the Humboldt hotel, 1410
Dodge street, scouring stains from his
clothes and carrying the watch and chain
which Frankland had worn. This watch
has been positively Identified by the police
as belonging to Frankland.
Moatyn Saw Blood Stains.
Captain Mostyn of the police department
testified that on searching Johnson he had
found that his prisoner's left shirt cuff
and coat sleeve were stained with blood.
Detective Donahue took from Johnson the
knife whlrh. Is supposed to have been the
Instrument of murder. The detective told
at the Inquest of the finding of the knife
In the prisoner's pocket. The blood-stained
wicked blade was displayed to the Jury.
Johnson leaned forward and looked at It,
but his face remained placid. He faced the
witnesses with tha same apparent Indif
ference. The testimony of witnesses from the
Humboldt hotel had no small share in
weaving the mesh which entangles John
son. Bernlce Wlllhoit, a negro girl with
whom Johnson spent the night after the
killing, Identified Frankland's watch and
chain as that which Johnson had taken
off In her room. Mabel and Georgia Hick
man, sisters, negro women, who live at the
same place, told ot seeing Jehnson in the
cafe of the hotel scrubbing stains from his
clothes with a hanrtker ;ff.
Said It Waa Sonp.
"He said that he had spilled some soup
on his clothes," both the witnesses de
clared. They said he had spent the night at
the place, but no one was found who
saw him leave the place the next morn
ing. The suspect had appeared at the
hotel between 9:30 and 10 o'clock, an hour
or more after the murder was committed,
according to these witnesses.
Wesley Hill, a negro youth, employed as
a cook at the Humboldt, said that he had
seen Johnson there Wednesday night at
about 9:80 o'clock, and that he had left
message to an employ of the place
named Lewis that he was to leave on the
following day for Chicago.
'I told htm there had been a killing at
Union depot when he came down next
morning," said Hill, but he only repled:
" 'There was?" "
R. W. Chamterdaln, a hackman, formerly
a member of the police force, testified thai
he had spent a half hour In Woolsteln'a
saloon on the viaduct In company with
Frankland and Johnson Just before the
o'clock closing hour. He said they had
taken two drinks together, but he did
not remember anything of the conversa
tion which took place there.
That Frankland was expecting to leave
for Chicago on the fatal night was shown
by the statements of Charles Parry, Pull
man conduotor running eaiit on the CMcago
Great Western. He said that shortly be
fore his train pulled out at 1:30 Wednes
day night Frankland, In company with
Johnson, had approachced him with a
proposition to "see" Frankland through to
Long Journey to Wedding-.
