IP T0 LEADEN bullets will plough
K t Uielr way Into tho heart of
B ' ' ( Charles Botha next Friday morn-
V lug. The live mcn In whpsc
P power it lay to extlngulrfi the mys-
I , terlous spark of life and: turn the
pulsing body into senseless clay said,
, "Liver The death watch was removed
J i and the dark shadow of death was dls-
I ' pelled. "Dutch" Charlie has entered
f, upon that ceaseless- round of rising,
working, eating and sleeping within the
' four walls of the penitentiary which
I ( i must continue until his life ends or the
1 pardoning board exercises further
I clemency in his case.
f , "Warner, you can take your man,"
( i said Attorney-General Breeden as he
' , came from Uie room whero the board
Hl' had been in executive session, for one
V'f hour and forty-live minutes.
Thl.H was the first Intimation given to
H , the public that tho sentence of death
B imposed on Charles Botha, for the
murder of William Tibbetts in- San
H' Juan county had been, commuted to life
imprisonment. M. M. Warner, the at
torney who had been pleading with, the
B ("board for Botha's life, arose from his
H chair and took MaJ. Brceden's hand. He
H , was so overcome that he could not be
Hjt. surd of his voice at first, but when he
Hl f pained control of himself he thanked
Hf) the bearer of the good tidings.
Hj( 4 Other members of the board came
Hi, from the room. The solemnity of their
H!' faces bore evidence to the serious con-
slderatlon which they had given to this
H- question of life and death. Mr, Warner,
f V his' eyes brimming with, tears, thanked
H f , each member personally. The moment
H f, was too solemn for conversation, and
B few words were spoken.
V Sent Word to Botha.
Hj ft Warden Arthur Pratt stepped to the
JLi telephone in the private otllce of the
Cj I clerk of the Supreme court and sent to
ff i the penitentiary the words which ware
JiN' to relieve Botha of his suspense. The
M I others left the chamber and started to
BH ,. their homes for lunch, as It was now
j 1:45 p. in.
Jj The special session of the Pardon
n ' .board began at 10 o'clock. The mem
H hern. Gov. Wells, Attorney-General
f J Breeden, Chief Justice Baskln, Justice
V Bartch and Justice McCarthy were all
H . present. The- petitioner was reprewmted
H hy Judge M. M. Warner of Provo, who
S i I said that he had been unable to pro
lan j mre the alfidnvits which he- had in
Jl r t tended to present to the lward. By
J ? ' the ailldavits he expected to prove
M 'J 1 that Tibbetts had been wurncd to "leave
J j the Dutchman's wife alone." long before
BHL? the tragedy.
Hu "I am satisfied." said Judge Warner,
fl p "that If this board could compel -those
I men to appear before It and testify hi
r A) these matters It could be shown be-
H l)( yond any question that Tibbetts had
f , "il heen Intimate with Botha's wife and
Jh, violated the chastity of his home In
f U u . such a manner as would arouse the
H j! " frenzy of any reasonable man.
j? Motive lor the Murder.
'IJ "In this case there can be no qucs-
ft tion as to the motive which prompted
J " ( Bo.tha to do this act. He had no other
J motive than to protect his home and
J ii his vlfe's chastity. His wife had been
l!: taken from him. He found her In Tib-
, betts'a home there In the mountains
BBMIi. and when Botha went there he de-
i manded of Tibbetts why he had stolen
y 4 J his wife and to explain himself. There
JBJp' can be no doubt from that demand but
rj " that Botha did believe that Tibbetts
BH had stolen his wife from him and had
BBt ' Vdestroyed his homo and Its chastity.
JBB' The next morning after tho shooting
BBJ j Botba told Mr. Pitts that the killing
BBtJk 1 'of his wife was an nccldcnt, so that
BBJ" It such a statement was not an after-
BBLf thought. It. has never occurred In hu-
BBft' k man hi8tor' that a man under such
BBV l circumstances would kill his wife first
BBflfl f, and then kill the destroyer of his home.
BJBBw ii It is natural that a. man would kill the
BBJf) paramour first. The fact that the
BBP l! nhootlng occurred as it did, that the
BH' ( wife was killed first, Is strong proof
BJBJI . that the killing of the wife was accl-
Hl; J Claims Trial Was Unfair.
B',' I "I believe that if Tibbetts had done
BBJj Jr what Botha did the feeling Is nuch down
BJBJI; if there that there would only have been
BBJL a Coroner's verdict of justifiable homl-
BJBKl! cldc and the case would have ended.
BJBBfri There is no doubt but that Botha did
BJBB not have a fair trial. His attorney, Mr.
BJBJj Wanleea, only had a fdw minutes be-
BJBK , i , fore the trial to consult with the de-
JBtt ) , fendant and did not have time to prc-
BJBm ' , 3arc for trial. Tho attorney asked for
BJBJI a continuance, but It was denied by
r the court. I am satisfied that If the
BJBJI , ' ease had been properly prepared the
BJBB t ! . verdict would have been nothing more
BJBB . .t than voluntary manslaughter. As to
BJBB , Eotha's crimes in Germany. I have two
BBP'I jl letters from his mother hi which sh
BJBJLil i . says that she Is coming hero with the
JBftft J ; . necessary evidence to show that he
BJBJprf , 7, was never charged with the crime of
BBJ,' I, ,. murder there"

H ," 7 : In reply to tho argument of Judge
BJBJI h Warner District Attorney Livingston
Bf I who Pr0flecuted at Botha's trial, said'
BJBJI I ' that the defendant had been fairly
BJBIij I i tried and convicted, all the evidenco

do It again if he had to, and said that
he shot the woman first and sent them
to heaven together.
The crime of whloh Botha was found
guilty aroused a great deal of feeling
In San Juan county, where Tibbetts
was gonerally respected and Botha was
considered an idle and worthless char
acter. The two men lived on neighbor
ing ranches. Botha married a lG-year-old
girl and took her to his little one
room cabin. He went away from home,
leaving his child-wife without food or
fuel. She applied to Tibbetts for help
and he took her Into his house. When
Botha returned he found his wife at the
Tibbetts ranch and shot her, killing

received as usual. Among the other
numbers were "In the Valley Whore
the Blue Birds Sing." by Margettp;

j POLITICAL GOSSIP1
JUDGE O. W. POWERS'S entrance
into the contest for election as the
Utah member of the Democratic
National committee was the one
political Item most talked about Satur
day. All along It has been believed tho
Judge would be one of the big six that
will go to the St. Louis convention. It
was conceded that he could go there as
the leader of the delegation If he but
say tho world, but Judge Powers did
not care for such a distinction, his
Ho was freely mentioned as the Dem
ocratic candidate for Congress, but thfs
he has donft little mnr tlinn llff n-lth
Judge Powers's determination to be
come a candidate for National Commit
teeman was a distinct surprise. The
three other leading candidates aro
Dave Evans, D. H. Peery and A. II.
Tarbet. It was said the choice lay be
tween Evans and Peery, with chances
favoring Evans. But Powers's entrance
Into the race has compelled the slate
makers to wipe out old scores and make
new calculations. Those calculations
take In the name of the affable Judge
In almost every instance, it Is said.
It Is further claimed that the con
vention, and not the National delegates,
will be called on to make the selection
of a National Committeeman. In this
event, many leading Democrats say,
Judge Powers will bo an easy winner.
His wide acquaintanceship with Na
tional party characters who will have
to do with the campaign, recommends
him to the better politicians, as a more
befitting Committeeman than either of
the other candidates.
As a friend to Judge Powers put It.
"TTc L-nnwo rha .i . ,
icuuviii aim ciiey iwiuw
him, lie would at once take rank with
his party men. Utah would be a part of
tho committee If Judge Powers has u
membership there. So much could not
be said of other candidates, though they
are wide awake men."
Another Democrat said: "Powers
should be elected by all means. II
would have Influence with the leaders
and Utah Democracy would profit by
E. B. Bltner of Murray is prominent
ly mentioned as a candidate for the Re
publican nomination for County Asses
sor. During July the Young Men's Repub
lican club will give a great picnic at
Saltalr or Calder's park. A tine pro
gramme will be prepared and the day
avIII be made a historic one In politi
cal circles. The exact date will be an
nounced next week.
Judge. W. H. King may not become a
candidate for the Democratic nomina
tion for Governor, but some of his
friends say that If he does not he will
exhibit a marvelous self-restraint.
A local Hearst supporter does not

he supported Mr. Bryan. He said ves
tcrday: "Judge Parker may have been
for Bryan, but there Is no one who can
say ho went around telling anybody
about it at the time."
Saturday It was reported that two
Hearst men were seen preparing b-tJ-lots
containing six names to be distrib
uted in next week's State convention.
A contest is now predicted by some.
Among the. Utah Democrats who arc
active or receptive candidates for dele
gate to the National convention are
Moacs Thatcher, Hyrum Hayball. Jo
seph Monson and Frank Nebeker of
Logan, Frank J. .Cannon and Judgo W
L. Maginnis of Ogden, Sam King of
Provo, Gcorgo Whlttcmore of Nephl,
John R. Barnes. Davis county. Harden
Bennlon, eVrnol, Fred Erlckson of San
pete and J. L. Rawlins, M. E. Mulvey
James H. Moyle, A. J. Weber, R, W'
Young, W. II. King, Sam Newhousc!
Henry P. Henderson and Mrs. Joseph
M. Cohen of Salt Lake City.
One of the best Informed Democrats
made a guess that Frank J. Cannon
Joseph D. Rawlins. Sam ITng, Gcorgo
Whlttemorc, John R. Barnes and Henry
P. Henderson will be the delegates.
Judge King has been considered all
along as a likely man, but he I3 said to
have concluded to yield to IiIb brother
Mrs. Cohen was in the Kansas Cltv
convention and seconded the nomlna'
tlon of AVJlliam Jennings Bryan, mak
ing quite a hit. Her frlends'arc urging
her name this year and she may be
elected, It Is said.
,IV.,W' "Watt's candidacy for Auditor
of State has taken root in Davis coun
ty. A Republican from there said the
Mercur postmaster had planted aom
seed In that corner of Utah that would
develop considerable of a following.
It Is denied that a truce had been de
clared in the political enmity between
Judgo King and D. H. Peery, 'as re
cently announced. The former Con
gressman has a hatchet ready, fort
Peory's candidacy for National Commit
teeman, and has already exhibited it,
"There will be no Instructions next
week," declared a Salt Lake Democrat,
discussing the State convention. "It is
more than probable Hearst men will
offer instructions, but tho convention
will vote them down."
Much is said of Mayor William Glas
mann's candidacy for the United States
Senate, and there Is a disposition
among the majority of the politicians to
look on the announcement as a joke.
Others, however, say that "Mayor Bill"
is a "dead sure" candidate and will
turn np several votes.
"There will be at least four candi
dates for Governor before the Repub
lican convention," declared a politician
who Is a member of the State commit
tee, "and one of them will be Heber M.
Wells. I have It direct that tho Gov
ernor will enter his name again and
will be a leading candidate, but not a
successful one this time."
Of the many Democrats that aro can
didates for National delegate, moro op
position 13 reported to have developed
against former Senator Joseph L. Raw
lins than any other, but the politicians
all put him on the successful slate.
Whether a delegate or not. Judge W.
n. King will go to St. Louis to watch
the proceedings of the Democratic Na
tional convention. It la admitted tho
Judge can be elected a delegate, but he
Is quoted as saying he will not permit
his name to be uned because his brother
Sam desires to go and he will not let
It be said the King family wants to be
the whole show.
