nearly five weeks was given by (lov.

formerly a priest In New York, whoso
execution for the murder of Anna
Atiniueller was set for Friday of this
week at King Sing. The reprieve
stays execution until tho week be
ginning l'cb. 14 in order that Hchmldt's
lawyers may have an opportunity to
establish their contention thnt the
uvidenco of physicians would show
that .Miss Aumuollcr's death resulted
from an Illegal operation.
Tiie court of Appeals recently de
nied a new trial, holding the evidence
concerning tho operation was not
newly discovered. Tho court said:
Tho defendants tale sunn les a
plausible explanation of Homo of thn
mysteries flf this tragedy.
In an approprlto proceeding It would
merit carnost scrutiny. Wc do not
doubt that such scrutiny will bo given
to it and that right will he done, if,
thereafter, an appeal for clomency is
tnndo to tho Executive."
The Governor said to-day:
"In light of tho opinion of the court
It seems but fair that counsel for
Schmidt should be able to present
this phaso of the matter for deter
mination.'' CITY GETS TERMINAL
