Many people were commissioned to search and capture Donald Morrison during 8 months. A $3000.00 reward was offered.

Some villagers hid Morrison in their homes and were even accused and imprisoned for that infraction.

We have many copies of 1889 newspapers that recounted the misfortune and trial of Donald Morrison.
