Oh all that greaves me is for the peo ple of Washington to have such a thought of me; they all think I killed the peddler but it is one of the greatest mistakes they ever made in their lives. They look at me as if I had been a lion but I have not done anything. God knows it and I know it too." The T?-{<orter having been admitted to the jail jard, TH* INTERVIEW took place at the bar* of the front window of the tir?>t tioor right. Tom Wright and Henry Young (the latter confined on the chargeof kill ing the drover.
