Attorney General 11. E. Cooper
xaid: If the Oiurt pteaso. I now
approach a duty that is, to me, a
most patnlul tusk that ot asking
the Court to pass tho eoutenuo of
death upou a man convicted of the
orimo of murder in the first de
gree. I hnvo felt that tho rcspou
idhility iu this case has boon rout
ing, very larjjoly, on mo as Attor
ney Gouoral. I investigated tho
case promptly after tlio affair
occurred, and I believe tho jury
has dealt with this defendant as ho
should be doilt with. Tho respon
sibility of the jury was great, and
they havo carried it through a
long trial, iuiptrtially aud justly,
and tho result ha been tho con
viction of this mau of tho highest
orimo kuown to our law. Ab. to
tho sentoncn I have nothing to Bay.
A. G. M. Itibortson said: If
tho Court plense, tlierois no alter
native allowod tho C.mrt in fixing
tho sontouco ou this mau. It does
seora to mo the jury was a little
bit extreme in finding as they did
with rofereuco to the guilt of this
dofendant nndor the evidence in
tlio case, especially as concerns
tho evidence of tho doctor as to
tho lack of any bruiBes that would
have occurred hid the deceased
been knocked down by a club by
this defendant as tostitied to by
cert'i Oliiuoso wituesies. It
seems to me also that the jury did
not give proper weight to the pvi
deuce of Keisel, that he positively
knew aud was able to testify that
this man was not at tho ChiueBe
camp when tho Chiueso witnesses
say ho was. However, tho jury

givo a few momonts to a reporter
this morning. Every elTort win
made to have a reply from him for
appearing along with the com

but it could not tin done.
When now at lait he gavo timo
to listen the qnostione, Mr.
Howell referred to the law lcgnrd

This provides that, where foreign
bidders como into competition
with local, not Iohh than forty per
cent of tho amount of tho con
tract shall bo spent in employing

whioh complaint was mndo iu this

"None of tho material was to bo
manufactured here, and it would
not havo boon a fair intorpretation
of tho law that local ngeuts of for

Mr. lvownll was informed of a

Meveral thousand dollars, besides
being giveti two or three moutliB
moro than the timo allowed all

"i'here is not n particle of truth
in tho statement," Mr. Howell
answered, and thon ho showed a
bluo print of all tho tonders fir

"The contract was awarded to
Gladding, McBoan & Co. on their
higher bid, although it was not
tho lowest, because wo wauted tho
two foot six lengths. Mr. Hering
almost advised ui to give tho con
tract to Hlackmer & Pobt, al
though their bid was consider
"Westorn makers do not make
