We speak only from rumor, as the will made by John Hildebrand has not yet been opened and attested, but we understand that he made a testament, and in it provided for the disposition of his property. He has a wife and three children in the state of Ohio whom he had not seen for several years, but who were provided for by him during his residence in the west. Since going out of the mercantile business in this city several years ago, he has been in the cattle business, locating first on Dead Horse creek, above Hulens ranch some distance, and latterly on a pre-emption claim not far from Minnesela, in Butte county. His property consisted of four horses, wagon, harnesses, saddles, and such property, and a bunch of cattle, estimated at from 500 to 800 head, all of them American cattle of a superior quality, with not one Texan or mixed blood among them. His will provides that after the pavement of his debts, his property shall be equally divided between his wife, three children and French Em, who has kept house for him since he has been in the cattle business, share and share alike. We understand that Jack Robinson was made executor of the estate, and in his selection the testator exhibited his usual good judgment, as no more capable or competent person could have been selected.

Gruesome Murders of Erring Sisters

Cowboy Ruffians Goes Unpunished for the Murder of Pearl Leopold

Leaves Deadwood
In regard to: Leopold, Pearl
Jan 26 1883

Mrs. Leopold of Spearfish, formerly a resident of Deadwood, was found in the hallway of the Murray House shot to death. It is believed that Bill Hill and Fred Wiggins got into a quarrel in the hallway and a shot was fired, mortally wounding Mrs. Leopold.
In regard to: Leopold, Pearl.
In regard to: Hill, Bill.
In regard to: Wiggins, Fred.
In regard to: Spearfish.
In regard to: Deadwood.
February 12, 1884

Coroner Smith held an inquest over the body of Pearl Leopold. Jury found that deceased died from a pistol shot by Fred Higgins with William Hill as an accessory.
In regard to: Leopold, Pearl.
In regard to: Higgins, Fred.
In regard to: Hill, William.
In regard to: Spearfish.
February 13, 1884

Body of Pearl Leopold, the murdered girl, was brought in last evening and placed in one of Rose Barnett's rooms on Wall Street, from whence the funeral will take place at 2 o'clock this afternoon. As in all other murder cases, Hill and Higgins have their friends, and they have been busy manufacturing public opinion to aid their friends, and various rumors are continually coming in from them. One of these was to the effect that it would be impossible to arrest them, as they would die before they would surrender, and no one would dare go after them as it would be certain death. Another rumor was that the citizens of Spearfish looked upon them as public benefactors, in thus ridding their town of a nuisance that had become unbearable, and they would do nothing in the way of aiding in their arrest, as the lesson they had taught bad girls would deter others from coming there. This is all bosh, and there is not a word of truth in any of these reports. Spearfish, like all other places, has a very large majority of peaceable, law-abiding citizens, who have for months been disgusted with the actions of the cowboy element, who have at times, when crazed with liquor, terrorized the entire population. This last brutal act has aroused them to a feeling that it must and shall be suppressed, and they are moving in the matter with a purpose that is truly commendable; pursuit has been organized, and men have gone on the trail who will overtake them and return them for trial, or kill them like the dogs that they are if they resist. But then they'll not resist, but will throw up their bloody hands like all others of their ilk. Contents Rose Barnett's rooms are located on Wall Street.

February 14, 1884

At 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon, a large number of persons assembled at the house of Rose Barnett, on Wall Street, to assist in the last sad rites over the remains of Pearl Leopold. The remains were neatly arrayed in a costly dress, ornamented with beautiful flowers, enclosed in a handsome silver plated casket, with the words "at rest," engraved upon a silver plate that ornamented the lid. The Reverend Dill officiated, and in a very eloquent and appropriate manner, called the attention of the friends assembled, to the lesson presented in the death of their friend.

There is likely to be some trouble in a day or two. Some fellow, a horse thief, was arrested and imprisoned at Miles City several weeks since. He was a United States prisoner, and Al Raymond started after him, as reported in the Times. At Spearfish Al concluded to return, and did so, sending Joe Ryan on after him. About the time Joe was ready to return the sheriff at Miles was notified that a long suffering community, who have no special love for horse thieves, would intercept Joseph and relieve him of his charge. To prevent this the sheriff sent out a guard of four men with Deputy Ryan and telegraphed Al Raymond to send out an armed escort to meet them and Deputies Duffy, Jackson and Fred Willard started out yesterday to meet them. Great pains will be taken with this horse thief, but there is no officer to go after Higgins and Hill.

February 14, 1884

Not one-half of the ruffanism displayed by Fred Higgins in the murder of Pearl Leopold has ever been told. An inmate of the house at the time states that when Hill and Higgins came in at the front door, Pearl was going up stairs, and was called down by them. Higgins struck her with his pistol and broke her nose. He then shot her, and after emptying their pistols called out in the darkness for Pearl. She answered him from a corner behind the door and told him she was done for. He took her by the hair and dragged her up stairs, undressed her, and after examing her wound expressed himself satisfied that she would die, and with Hill then left the house.
In regard to: Leopold, Pearl.
In regard to: Higgins, Fred.
In regard to: Hill.
February 17, 1884

A messenger (Whispering Tom) came into Spearfish Sunday from the battle field, riding the horse that carried Hill out of the country the night they murdered Pearl (Leopold). He says that Cunningham was killed and Harris shot in the leg while standing in front of the saloon, as mere lookers on. He states that it was a mere boy, known as the Kid, the same as referred to by Al Raymond in his letter, that done the shooting from behind a fence and killed O??Hara and perforated Fred Willard??s clothing.

Billy the Kid living in cave near Bear Lodge mountains.
Complete article: Cattlemen who have lately come in from Foster??s range, at the west end of the Bear Lodge mountains, says that Higgins, Hill, Axelbee, Billy the Kid, and the balance of the outlaws, some of whom are wounded, are living there in a cave. One of them is so badly wounded that he had to be hauled to his present quarters on a sled drawn by hand. For food they kill stock, and are supposed to be living on beef straight. If they are wanted right bad by the officers, they might be found, as the cattle owners would show them the cave.

Charley Wilson last evening told his attendant that he did not shoot the girl, that she shot him and then herself. The pistol the shooting was done with, it is said, was hers, and she was powder burned and he was not. This is not, however, in accordance with his admission soon after the tragedy occurred.
In regard to: Wilson, Charley.
November 8, 1883

Charley Wilson is getting along splendidly, suffering but little if any pain, has a good appetite, and sleeps well, no inflammation, and the swelling almost entirely subsided. Henry Robinson, the special officer in charge, is with him all the time. Drs. O'Neall, McKown and Dickinson, examined him yesterday, and all agree he is entirely out of danger, will retain one eye, and Dr. O'Neall thinks both of them will come around all right.

Death. Wilson at 3 p.m. yesterday, at his father??s residence on Miller street, Charles Wilson breathed hs last. It was thought for days that he was rapidly recovering, but on Wednesday inflammation of the brain set in, accompanied by pneumonia, he became delirious, and sank rapidly, being unconscious most of the time to the end. His father was with him continually and rendered every assistance his loving heart could dictate. The girls have been unremitting in their attentions, providing everything possible for his comfort. They have also made prepartions for his funeral, which takes place today. Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.

Grand larceny event of the season in which W.P. Tyler appeared for the territory and A.W.
