He Mounted the Scaffold Calmly and
Hid Last Words Are a Protestation of
His InnocenceSays Johnny Kellar
Was the Best Friend He Ever Had,
On the gallows at 12:31 this morning
William Williams paid the death penal
ty for the murder of 16-year-old John
Kellar at No. 1 Reid court, St. Paul,
on the night of April 13.
The execution was marred by a mis
calculation in the length of the rope.
Three deputies, standing on the scaf
fold, held the rope in order to keep the
prisoner's feet from touching the floor
as he strangled.
The condemned man approached the
scaffold without a visible tremor and
standing beside the noose that was to
send his soul into eternity, protested his
innocence in his last earthly utterance.
Then the cap was pulled on, the noose
adjusted, Sheriff Miesen pulled the trap
and the body of William Williams
struggled in the death throes. Fourteen
and a half minutes later Coroner Miller
pronounced Williams dead from strang
ulation.
When, ten minutes before the hang
ing, the sheriff and two deputies en
tered his cell, the prisoner looked up
pleasantly.
"Your time is up, Williams," said
Deputy Robert.
I am ready if you are," quietly re
marked Williams, and the little party
started for the scaffold.1
When they had left the elevator and
were nearipg the execution chamber
WilliamB lengthened his stride and led
the little party up the steps of the gal
lows.
''William Williams, have you any
thing to say why the sentence of the
court should not now be carried out?"
asked Sheriff Miesen.
"Gentlemen, you are witnessing an
illegal hanging,
repliedmthaccused
prisoner
I a of
killing Johnny Kellar. He is the best
friend I ever had." The voice fell
and the few words that followed were
inaudible.
Following the fall of the body sev
eral minutes elapsed before Coroner
A. W. Miller and Dr. Charles A.
Wheaton stepped up to the dangling
figure and after a brief examination
announced that life was extinct. Chief
Deputy Sheriff Robert then stepped to
the front of the scaffold and said:
"William Williams having been pro
nounced dead by the physicians, I now
proclaim that the sentence of the' court
has been fully carried out. All pres
ent here bear witness." He then cut
th rope. The body fell to the floor
and was taken in charge by the cor
oner.
Williams was accused of the double
murder of John Kellar and his mother.
The shooting occurred in the flat occu
pied by the Kellars in Beid court, and
its cause was the refusal of the mother
to let Williams take her boy away with
him. He was indicted for both mur
ders and was brought to trial May 11,
for the killing of the boy. He was
convicted and sentenced to be hung
Aug. 9. An appeal resulted in a Btay,
but the lower court was sustained and
this morning the murderer expiated his
crime.

PERRY OWNS THAT
HE FIRED STORE
WITNESS IN ARSON CASE TELLS
WHOLE STORY.
Evidence Reveals That Mrs. YateB Had
Such Control Over Man that He Did
Her Bidding Without Question
Store Is Burned for Insurance Money.
Insanity, superinduced by love and
jealousy, is evidently the defendant's
explanation of Erwin A. Perry's burn
ing of the store building at 708 Third
avenue NE, and of his damaging story
told on the witness stand today in the
trial of Mrs. Emma Yates, charged with
arson.
With crippled hands and scarred face
Perry took the stand in Judge John Day
Smith's court today and confessed to
setting the fire in the defendant's
store, implicating Hhe women in his
testimony.
In reply to questions by First Assist
ant County Attorney John F. Dahl the
witness told of the plans made for
burning the store, and the work of him
self, Mrs. Yates and Miss Anderson in
setting it on fire.
Mrs. Yates Wants Money.
Mr. Dahl took the witness over the
preliminary arrangements and he testi
fied to conversations with the defend
ants Yates and Anderson, in which he
swore that Mrs. Yates had insisted that
the place must be burned as the insur
ance would soon run out, and that she
had bills coming due that she could not
meet unless she made some money.
Perry then testified to his previous
relations with Mrs. Yates. He said
that he had met her about three years
ago when she lived at 1028 Hennepin
avenue, and as Mrs. Clement, ran an
employment office for girls and prac
ticed clairvoyancy.
The witness testified that he had giv
en Mrs. Yates money and that she had
told him that she did not want to get
married, but if she ever did she would
marry him. In February, 1905, the
witness said that he learned that the
defendant had married Yates. He
asked her about it and she admitted
that it was true, but stated that it was
merely a business arrangement and
would vnot interfere with her former
relations or affections. Perry said he
continued to give her money.
On cross-examination Perry admitted
that he had been the husband of Dr.
Linda Burfield. The trial of the case
will occupy several days longer.

the reason for Glove tubbers.

Several poker tables, chips and decks
of cards were taken. The two men

and both pleaded not guilty. Their
cases were continued until tomorrow.
The raid was the result of reports
that have come to the police recently
from persons alleging that they had lost
money in the place. The officers say
they "have enough evidence to secure a

SUDDEN TURN IN
PIG PAIENX CASE
v
INJUNCTION AGAINST DBBRE-
WEBBER OOMPANY.
Judge Amidon Decides Famous War,
Ordering Deere-Webber Company to
Cease Infringing on Hoyt Patent and
to Account to Dowagiac Company
for Past Use.
The Deere-Webber company of Min
neapolis lost to the Dowagiac Manu
facturing company of Dowagiac, Mich.,
today in one of the outlying skirmish
es of the famous campaign which the
latter company has been waging almost
continuously since 1891 to protect its
rights in and to the Hoyt patent grain
drill.
Judge Oharles Amidon of the United
States circuit court issued an order en
joining the Deere-Webber company
from selling drills which infringe the
Hoyt patent until that patent shall ex
pire. Further than this the order di
rects that the Deere-Webber company
shall account to the Dowagiac company
for all such drills it has sold. Jusf
what damages the Deere-Webber coni-
Eany
will Tiave. to pay can not be
nown until after the accounting is
made before George F. Hitchcock, Jr.,
who has been appointed special master
in the Case.
Large Sum at Stake.
The conclusion of this case, which
has been before the local branch of the
United States court for some time, was
unexpected. Judge Amidon was hear
ing a motion to dismiss in chambers,
when he announced that he could not
dismiss as moved by the defendant, but 1
thought that as the entire record was
before him the time was ripe to enter
a final decision. Neither party object
ed and the decision was rendered ac
cordingly.
The Deere-Webber company was
brought into court in connection with
the plaintiff's suit against the Brennan
Manufacturing company of Louisville,
Ky., which has been manufacturing the
drills sold by the local firm and many
otherB. The plaintiff estimated that at
least 20,000 drills, valued at $75,000,
all alleged to infringe on their patent,
have been put on the market.

CRUSADE ON HITOHERS
Hitching horses to street lamps has
become such a common practice that
there is a general, demand for a Crusade
to end the practice. There is an ordi
nance prohibiting it and a few arrests
would undoubtedly have a salutary
effect. Right t the City hall horses
may be Seen hitched to lampposts at
any time of the day.
The present street lamps with their
delicate incandescent light attachments
and still mora delicate mantles, can
not withstand much rough usage. Even
a slight jolt will often displace the
mantle. A restless horse hitched to a
street lamp will destroy a mantle in a
few moments.
Complaints haVe been made by the
light inspector and the lighting oontrac
ots and it is understood that Mayor
David P. Jones will be asked to in
struct his police force to bring several
of the offending drivers to time.

To lazily float
In a painted boat
On a shimmering morning sea,
Or to flirt with a maid
In the afternoon shade
Seems good enough sport to be
But the evening hour,
With its subtle power
Is sweeter and better far
If joined to the joy
Devoid of alloy
That lurks in this good eigar.

Wha Ea and
When to Eat
Two Important Questions An
swered Easily After Bead
ing This.
Every nutritive element of the best
white wheat grown is found in Malta
Vita. This famous food is the whole
of the wheat thoroughly steamed and
cooked in absolute purity and mixed
with the finest malt extract that was
ever made, thus it is the richest*
strongest food in the world. You un
derstand, of course, that the cooking
and steaming of the wheat gelatinizes
its starch, and then the malt extract,
a powerful digestive agent, quickly
converts this starch into maltose, or
malt sugar. Maltose is great food, and
the weakest stomach digests and as
similates it without effort.
We all know that for many years
physicians of high standing in their
profession have prescribed malt ex
tracts, which contain a large percent
age( of maltose. Malta-Yita, the crisp,
delicious whole-wheat food, contains
from eight to ten per cent of maltose.
When Malta-Vita comes from the
ovens, it is the crispest, most delicious
food in the world, containing only one
per cent of moisture. The other 99 per
cent is foodbrain and bone and nerve
and muscle foodand most easily di
gested.
Malta-Vita is always fresh and crisp,
and ready to eat. Delicious, refresh
ing, invigorating. No other food like
it. All grocers. Now 10 cents.
