Reward for Indian Suspect

Source: The Evening Review (Spokesman), July 4, 1885, page 4


It has been suggested that the city council or private citizens should offer an additional reward for the capture of the Indian who shot Geiger last Saturday night. The poor fellow left a considerable amount himself and the heirs, if he has any, might add still more to the reward, making it so large that parties could be induced to bring in the murderer, if he is in the country.
