From the Daily Nebraska Press, dated September 23, 1875:
The Collins Murder
From the Kearney papers we learn that eight of the ten herders indirectly concerned in the murder of Milton Collins in that city, the other day were captured near the west line of Phelps county. J.P. Smith and a man called “Yank” escaped, but the other eight men were covered by the rifles of the pursuers and surrendered, and were escorted back to Kearney. At last accounts one of the two remaining herders had been captured and the other was on an island, which was surrounded, and the pursuers were about to tire the island and shoot the man if he did not surrender. The county commissioners of Buffalo county have offered a reward of $250 for the capture of the murdered, dead or alive.
