HOYT HAYES GETS LIFE TERM IN THE
STATE PENITENTIARY.
?All, HANDWRITING EXPERT,
Says Lula Hayes Wrolc Inc All-important Note.
Brid Resume ot the Case Hayes
Begins His Long Term.
[Tho Stttto, < lotobor 15. |
Hoyt Hayos will uot bo hanged. Gov.
lloywai'il hus commuted bis soutouoo to
life im) i isoiimont in tho State peniten
tiary, 'I iis notion was based principally
mi tho dm isuin of an export OXlliniuor of i
questioned handwriting. Hayos had
boon cc uvicted of having killed his wife,
and the evidence was purely circumstan
tial, with nothing to show motive, and
i for that reason it appealed to the Qover
. nor that ''?ere might bo cause for doubt;
thc stat n ant ot the expert increases
that foch.lg of doubt to s loh an extent
that Gov. U ey ward is unwilling to soe
the man suffer tho death penalty. On
the other hand he does not grant an un
conditional pardon for tho reason that
1 there are so many circumstances unfa
vorable to the acoUSed thal n commuta
tion of sentence seems to he thc only al
i ternativo.
In making the announcement last
I night Governor Hoy ward saul: "The
papers in this case were submitted to mo
, about three weeks ago ami following my
usual custom I referred them to the trial
judge and solicitor in order to get their
aid in passing upon the petition.
"Solicitor Hoggs said : 'Defendant sun
! tonccil to 1)0 hanged on October l l. I'.'ul.
I concur with the Circuit and Supreme
( om ls.
"Judge Dautsdor made the following
report: 'The testimony in this ease hav
ing been printed ami pr08011ted to your
Excellency foi consideration, i respect
fully nc urn petitions without expressing
an opinion or making a recommendation,
leaving it to your Excellency to reach a
just conclusion from the consid?rai ion
of such testimony.1
"I thou carefully read the testimony '
and examined the written exhibits used
on trial. Tho evidence was entirely cir
cumstaiit ial, the d?tendant and his wife
being alone at the time of her death.
"Thc State failed to show any motive 1
i foi the crime. Tho defense robed upon
the t?o ny that the deceased committed
suicide and a note was produced, claimed
by the defense to bc tn her handwriting.
. This note leads as follows:
" 'LULA
" '1 am treated well by Hoyt, but 1 had
rather die than to have the pain and sick
ness of motherhood, therefore I write to
let you know 1 did it."
" The State claims that this note was a
forgery by defendant, produced by him
in order to furnish the foundation of a
defence.
"Tho question thou,who wrote this note,
was a must material circumstance to he
considered in this case. Testimony of
local exports was bad ai the trial, tho
