CONFESSES AFTER DREAM
Jail Prisoner Tells Sheriff of Colorado Murder,
Saying He Was Counseled by Ghost of Mother.
Canon City, Colo.--Morris Kirkland, prisoner in the county jail, sent for Sheriff Esser and said he had been impelled by a dream, in which the ghost of his dead mother counseled him to tell the truth concerning the killing of Dominic Mangino, murdered between Portland and Concrete, June 11. His story to the sheriff implicated John Smith and Charles Bosley now in jail, who have since confessed.
