C.ov. Foss, after receiving this after

examined the prisoner read them care
fully, Karly this evening ho unused the
titinouncetnetit to lie made that executive
clemency would not bt extended.
Rkheson will Is' put to deith sonm
time early next week, that is after mid
night of Sunday
The exact time when he will lie put
to death by electricity i. a matter of dis
oietlon with (Ion. Hridges, warden of the
State prison. Ho bus the cntite week
in which to follow the instructions of
the court but has not been in tho habit
of delaying his unpleasant tasks later than
Tuesday morning of the seven day period.
So It i. likely that tho slayer of Avis Lin
nell.the central figure in New England's
most startling murder case of recont years,
will pay the jienalty on either Monday or
Tuesday morning, about 1 o'clock.
(!ov Foss issued a statement to-night 1
.in regard to tin; case It shows that the
opinion of al I the alienists, those employed
by the State, by the Governor person-lily
and by the defence, agree that Richeson
was not insane when he committed the
cruti'-and inot ins in? now.
The doctor- informed th" Governor
that while the prisoner's antecedents
were mentally not of the liest utut he him-s.-lf
hid exhibited abnormalities at times
it could not b't said tint he wa irre
ponsible when he committed the crimo
or th it It is ti'iw lgilly lnsiti.
Iticheson has not been informed of the
Coventor's decision. He went to bed
to-night in his death ell unaware that his
pla for commutation will not be referred
t j the Kxccuttve Council by (5ov. Foss.
He stood the strain of another day in the
prr-oti without showmg-any signs of
weakening. To-night ho was v"iited
by his two spiritual advisers, the Rev.
Herbert S. Johnson and the Kev. R. II.
.Stebbins, the prison chaplain
They found Richeson calm and unafraid.

that matters were not looking xerv favor-

1 "Corporal chastisement of a wife by a
husband, when provoked by fuNo accusn

Tli master also finds It difficult to sym

justify acts of personal violence in tho
abstract, and as between husband and
wife especially such occurrences ure

incessant and unwarranted accusations
of infidelity might arouse a husband lo

A letter was published yesterday pur

Harry Thaw and Evelyn Neablt had re
turned from Europe. The letter an pub

pages of paper. The letter proper la on

Xott A search wa made through n
trunk which contain the papers und
exhibit In the two Thaw trial and much

but not used. The letter, without nny
mention of the. five names or the word

Mr Shearn nor the District Attorney wnt,

and there wa nothing on the first sheet
to indicate there was any more to it Tho

furnished the scandal to tho llnutd For
tunately this i susceptible of proof, for
the original letter is in the flies of the Dis

Immediately after learning of tho forKsry
I called Mr Jerome on tho telephone and
MsKed lor an inspection of the original
letter Mr Jerome stated that, he had no
sinh letter in hi possession hut that there
was such a letter ill existence. Ile assured
me that he had not given the letter out for
publication 'Ihe interesting uucftion,
theieloro, at onco was tho dont.ty of the
potons who are so Interested In keeping
Thaw Iti Matteawan that they resort to

these unlair tactics I laid the matter hefori

unts.Mr Mos and .Mr Nott and demanded
that the Thaw tiles he searched for such a
letter Ihe search invented tho original

envelope was addressed to "J. P. Kennedy

tardly nature of the trickery that has been
resorted to was at once apparent to all.
District Attorney Whitman declared that
he would take cognizance of my complaint
and go to tho bottom of the matter and
asked mo to bring the facts to the attention
of the Attornoy-General, which I shall do.
When the truth Is disclosed It will be
found that this altered letter and the recent
fake baby story nro directly traceable to
the same group of rich degenerates thnt
tried to railroad Thaw to .Matleuwnn w un
cut a trial In IW in order to prevent
the facts about their disgusting live from
