In their confessions they Implicated Martin ns being the leader of the gang. They were arrested through the efforts of Kossuth county officers and state agents. • It is believed that Martin was the' ring leader of the gang and had got the boys,into the game of bank robbing. He was the one who would stay outside In' the Car while the others were the- goats and would do the actual stick u{j work.

Kossuth county officials have the distinction of being directly or indirectly responsible for the apprehension and sentencing of seven or eight bank robbers so far both in Iowa and Minnesota. This Is a great record for Kossuth county and the people of the county should feel proud that they have a set of officials who are on their toes every minute keeping down crime and apprehending 'criminals.
