Horrigan's brother-in-law, Patrick Gorman, and the Intter's son, Paul, 18, and escaped without making an effort to find the money Horrigan and hk brother, Stephen, 57, are reported to have secreted about the farm because of their distrust of banks. Stephen was wounded. The would-be robbers invaded the home of the Horrigans as they sat at dinner with their sister, Ellen, 75, and the Germans' who recently came from their home in Huron, South Dakota, for a visit. The hold-up woman asked for a drink of water. Miss Horrigan went for it. As she left, the men drew pistols with the command: "hands up." Stephen moved as if for a weapon and the men flred. The Germans were killed Instantly, and the elder Horrigan fell, bullets through his jaw and one arm. At the hospital here it was said that unless infection sets in, he would live. His left arm hit by a bullet, Stephen ran into an adjoining room for a pistol which he flred as the intruders fled to their automobile. One shot shattered the windshield of their car. Posses failed to find any trace of them. Neighbors said the stories of buried treasure on the Horrigan homestead were many. Last summer, neighbors said, three men and a woman were routed from the farm while digging, presumably for the supposed buried treasure.
