I think that the evidence in thlsase shows you guilty of the very highest crime known to tht law, and it now becomes my duty to pronouuee the. judgment of the law upon you. I am mindful of the fact this it a very solemn duty and It is one the court -cannot eerape and the verdict la one the jury could not escape, and there is no escaping It for yoo. Do not Ratter yourself In the brief time that the law allows you, with any hope that this judgment It likely to be reversed. That is a very remote chance.

Sherlock Holmes,, hat worked out some clever . cases, through the as sistance ol Dr. A. Conan Doyle, his cre ator, but the famous mythical detective has rival in Harrison Allen. Mr. Allen, beside, holding the position of assistant secretary ol the republican state central committee, la distrlctattor- ney for the fifth district. This district includes Columbia county, where the murder occurred. Romance, mystery, acumen and shrewd calculation, were combined in the case that has resulted iu the convic tion ol Hchieve as a murderer In the first degree. Few ol the mythical sleuth, worked out clew, more carefully or with better results than District At torney Allen. The story of bow the crime was fastened upon Hchieve sounds more like the fabrications spun from the prolific brain of some author of de. tevtlve fiction than an e very-day murder case. It la as aensational as a melo drama and much more rcalistie. Sherlock Holmes' basic principle In unearthing crime was the search for trivial commonplaces, which, while over looked by the casual observer, led di rectly to the culprit in the case which be bad under consideration. This pro cess ot reasoning, or tracing ol a certain (act from insignificant clews, applied to case, invariably brought about the de sired end. Of course, to catch a crimi nal in fiction 1. a. easy aa rolling off a log, but in real life it Is, oh I so differ ent. This theoretical detective, Sher lock Holmes, waa pleased to call the re lation of trifles to a crime aa "the science of observation and deduction." So great was the skill of Holmes, or rather Dr. Doyle, In working out a mystery, upon paper, that the reputation ol the sleuth of fiction became world-wide. In following out his duty, pursuing the ends of justice and exercising good, common sense, combined with an ana lytical mind capable of following an el feet to its cause, Mr, Allen baa accom plished what may have "stumped" Sherlock Holmes, or even Foxy Quiller i tune It. What Allen, District Attorney Allen, did waa to collect a number of small ar ticles, such a. hair, and through their instrumentality lorge a chain of circum stantial evidence to strong that the de fense waa unable to break it and the Jury quickly returned a verdict of mur der In the first degree. tii a cniHK. Joseph Schulkowski was found dead In the brush .even mile (rom St. Hel ens, December 27. tveryming inui cated that murder most foul had been couinitted in cold blood. Bobbery ap peared to have been the motive. The body waa found under a log, where it had evidently been placed in an effort to conceal it. There were two gunshot wounds in the body and the pockets of the dead man had been rirleu. There waa no clew to the murderer, nparently. District Attorney Allen went worx on the case, but at Bret the prospects were anything but encouraging. Then began minute scrutiny for evidence that would point to the assassin. They SUOn Oevelopeu. llie uiuruereu utnu was Identified as Joseph Schulkowski, who bad been living with the Achieve family, six and one-half miles from hra the body was discovered. In quiry developed the (act that the young man bad left the Hcnieve nome tne aay after Cbriatma. to go to rortianu. When he left be had a sum of money in a belt, which be wore itrappea arounu hi. waist. Thi. money was gone when the body wat found. The dead inau had been living at Scbieve's. Such waa the sum total of tacts upon which to run down the murderer. The prospects for .ueccss were not encourag in. It looked as though the cold-blooded assassin would never be apprehended. THE BUNT. Intent urion becoming thoroughly fa miliar with the scene of the crime, the prosecuting officer examined the locality in which the corpse waa disclosed. It nnn became apparent that the crime had been perpetrated several yards from where the body lay when found. Tha murder was committed upon an uu- (reouented road, and the body bad been dragged into an underbrush by the aa .a.ain and concealed, partly, by a log. .ruinv of the around at me VIW J " of the tragedy in the road re vealed the (act that a horse haa Deen in ilmt vleinltv about the time ot the mur der. Measurement, oi me uom taken a. a possible clew. rext were found a few horse hairs, of a white AMlrtf lvincr on the around. Their dis covery waa quite accidental and, while not considered of particular impimsiiw, were carefully noted. A bullet waa ex irarted from the body of the dead man and, near the place of the .booting, was an empty 820 Winchester rioe u... Soon a theory was formed, oasea upou these discoveries, which subsequently proved correct, in the eyes ot ine jury. ' ...... . !H kn.t hiiall It waa argued tnat me msmoiu on horseback ; that the horse was white or had considerable white hair; that the .hot which killed Bchumowa-u caui from a gun using a 82-20 Winchester .y,m: The first thing to do was to find a white horse whose boot wouia correa- ,.nd with those found at we scene o the crime. It developed tiiat August a..hl.. the man at whose home Schul kowski had lived, had a nag tallying with the color of hair and Bine of hoof of the unknown. This waa a strong link In the chain against Schieve. It also became known that Sebieve had a Sun and that the 32-20 shell fitted the cartridge. ..... Tha evidence pointed directly to Schieve as the guilty person, but the olewt did not stop here. A coat ol a..,lva wa. searched and In an Inside pocket waa found a page from a copy of Ik Marvel'. "Reverie, of n Bachelor." The relation of thi. find to the murder case lay in the (act thut when the dead body of Schulkowski wa. examined sev eral leaves from "Reveries of a Bach elor" were found in a pocket of his coat. A. though this chain of circumstan tial evidence waa not sufficient, District Attorney Allon proceeded to forge a few more links. He traced the suspect (rom bis home, by means of witnesses, to the scene of the murder and back again. When Allen was through with bis (act. and theories be bad a. strong case of circumstantial evidence formed as could be possible, Sherlock Holmes could not have exorcised more skill at observ ing and deducting, or of building up a better theory. The result was a power ful cane against Hchieve, every move ment of his being accounted for by the theory o( Allen. Against thi. mountain of evidence the attempt on the part ol W. T.Vaughn, attorney for the defense, to prove an alibi (ailed. The alibi was Introduced, but it waa not heeded by the jury. NOTICE FOB PUBLICATION. Department of the Interior.
