Realizes That All Hope Is
Gone and Does Not Wish
to Prolong -Agony.
By rntcruatlonal News Service.
BOSTON, May .IS. His nerves shat
tered; his body -sveaknued by long ab
stinence from food and ull hope of life
gone, the IcYv. Clarence V. T. Hiebc
son, slayer of Avis Liu noil, today
begged that his mental agony be not
prolonged and that; he be put to death
He declared fervently that the sus
pense was worse than the payment of
the death penalty would be. ami that
he wished to bo la Icon to the electric
chair as soon a? possible after thc time
fixed by tho court.
Respite of 24 Hours.
It is belioved here that Warden
Bridges iu tended to postpone the exe
cution until between midnight; and .1
o'clock Tuesday morning, so that the
arrangement would not have to be com
pleted on Sunday, and whether Kiche
son's plea for early death will bo
granted depends solely on tho warden.
liicbeson realizes that all hope is
cone. With tho help of friendly cler
gymen he is trying in his last moments
to make his peace with his maker. The
horror of death and tho fear of the
death chair have driven Kicheson al
most crazy. His appetite has failed
and he has been sleeping very-little.
Afraid to Be Alone.
"Don't leave me alone stay with
mc until thc end," was his appeal to
the Rev. Dr. If'erbcrt; S. Johnson to
day. Either Dr. Johnson or tho ,Tccv. Her
bert W. Stcbbins is .with the .doomed
man all tho. time. . They talk with the
prisoner, read from thc Bible to him
and hold his trembliug hands.

afraid in tho dark. . Tho .clorgymen
(allt to him as they would talk to a
boy. Jt is feared he may collapse at.
the last moment that it may be neces
sary to carry him to tho chair. -
It became -known 'tonight "that Gov
ernor'JFoss has received- letters threat
ening him vitlf death -if Richoson is

Matter of Choosing Tempo
rary Chairman of Republi

By International News Sen-Ice.
CHICAGO, May S. Tt may bo that
President Taft will himself pick
tho temporary chairman for tho
Republican national convention.
At any rate, ho will bo a Taffc man,
and the president -will bo consulted bo
foro he is named.
That tho president might bo con
sulted, tho subcommittee on arrange
ments announced no prominent person
for that place today. Instead, Chair
man Harry S. New- of the subcommittee
was authorized to make the. selection
and the announcement when that se
lection is made.
"I cannot tell you who is going to
bo chosen, because I don't know,"
Colonel Now said tonight after tho ad
journment of tho committee mooting.
"Of course, wo discussed several men
and montionod several names at our
meeting today. But- no ono has boon
determined upon, and I havo tho frill j
authority of tho committee to pick a
man. To givo mo that authority was
tho only conclusion the committee
Will Submit Names.
There is a full understanding,
though, that thc committee did agree
that three or four namos, possibly half
a dozen, should bo Htibinittod to the
president, and that ho should bo al
lowed to inako his. own choice. That
those names may be submitted to him,
and that thc man choson may first give
his consent to fill the place, are the
reasons presumably back of tho failure
of Colonel Now to discloso tho name
of the man selected or most favored.
Tho man most spoken of today as tho
ono likely to bo choson was Sonutor
Elihu "Root of New York. There woro
good reasons offered for his selection,
the most important being that while ho
was Koosevelt's secretary of state, ho
is now a good, sound Taft man. And
his reputation as a lawyer would also
be cxpocted to enrry weight in a
speech against tho Roosevelt doctrine
of thc recall of judicial decisions.
May Select Olioate.
Late in tho evening, though, the
name of another New Yorker who is
just as prominent na Senator Root
moro prominent as a lawyer and. a far
greater was suggested, that of Joseph
U. Ohoatc, former embassador to
Great Britnin under Roosevelt. Mr.
Ohoatc has taken no part in the pres
ent campaign, but ho is undorstood to
bo against Roosevelt becauso of his
" Other names mentioned were Senator
Thoodoro E. Burton, Arthur T. Vorys,
Myron T. Herrick and Governor
'Whoovor tho man to bo chosen may
be, howovor, ho will bo a Taft man,
at 'heart, and will have tho Taft "O.
Iv. '' upon him beforo ho is given the
appointment to make tho "big"
speech of I he convention. That is a
certainty, because not only is Colonel
New a Taft man and delegate if ho
is not ousted from his contested seat
but every other man on the subcommit

Tho description of tho "Dillon" for

been searching is almost identical with
that of thc dead man. Tho tracks at

A policeman who noticed tho simi

and by one employeo of tho Freed Fur- vm

the lands, with 10 per cent in-
