BATTLE WITH HORSE THIEVES
A Desperate Encounter -With Law
Fakgo, N.D.,Nov. 12. The chances
that Myron R. Kent will not bans to
day grow brighter. Governor Allen has
wired JudgcMcConnell for the reason
for asking executive clemency. The
latter telegraphed back: "The reason
I request you to commute the death
sentence of Myron Kent is that his
is shrouded in mystery, and his con
viction Is based merely on circumstan
tial evidence which does not preclude
all possible doubt."
Coming, as this does, from the man
who presided over the trial,tt Is strong
languagc,and may Influence the gover
nor. Immediately on receipt of this
the governor wired Judge McConnell
to come at once ' to Bismarck. The
judge was at Sherbrooke, In 'Steele
county, and a telegram says he missed
the Great Northern train at Hope,but
started to drive 50 miles across the
snow-laden prairie with the tempera
ture below zero, to reach the main line
of the Northern Pacific in time to
catch the midnight train to Bismarck.
It is a ride to save a man's life, and If
he reaches the capital in time to con
fer with Governor Allen, the sentence
will probably be commuted.
Sheriff Barns will have everything
In readiness for the execution Thurs

BANKER ALBERT'S VIEWS.
Banker J. JI. Albert, of Salem, was
a delegate to the convention that
nominated l'almcr and Buckncr. He
docs not concede that the paramount
duty of the coming administration Is
to enact a new tariff law. His inter
pretation of the verdict of tho people
Is as follews:
"I regard the result as an emphatic
endorsement of Mr. Cleveland's finan
cial policy," He says, "this was the
paramount question. A reliance on
tariff policy of the Republican party
would have resulted manifestly In
our overwhelming defeat, as it has
done twice before, resulting both
times In tho election of Mr. Cleve
land. Hence, tho first duty of con
gress should be to enact such laws as
may be necessary so as to maintain the
