that it will construct a new mala from

After eighteen years of wandering

continually reminding him that he was a
thief. Elmer E. Johnson, walked into the
United States marshal's office In the
federal building late Thursday afternoon
and announced that he was wanted by the
federal authorities In Denver for embea

BtaUa attorney, where ha told the story
ot his offense. ,
Tn 1893, Johnson says, ha was In charge
of a United Statea land office, and he
bad In his possession I-V.000 which he had
collected aa fees from homesteaders. He
deposited all but tl.SOO In a bank and
several days later the bank failed.
As he depoBlted the money, regardless
of a rule which stated that he should not
place public funds In a bank not secured
by the government, he feared the conse
quences for his act and fled with the
U.S00 which he had not deposited. He was
arrested several months later In Fort
Worth, Tex., where he tu taken before
a commissioner and extradited to Colo
rado, where he wae Indicted. He was
later released on a 12.000 bond.
Johnson had been at liberty only a few
days when he disappeared and. since IRQ
nothing had been heard of him, although
federal officials kept on the trail for
several years. In ISM the officials gave up
hope of ever finding htm so the case was

the Unttod States army and fought tn the

several years and returned to the United
States, lonesome and penniless.
He picked up the printer's trade and

let him live In peace and yesterday he
appeared In the marshal's office and
made a clean breast of his crime. '
He was placed In the Douglas county

him that the case against Johnson had
been aolled and said that there was no
reason for holding' hiiu. Johnson when
