Trying H,rd to Save Her Husband's Lite. The pathetic efforts of Mrs. Homer Bird to save the life of her husband, under sen tence to be hanged on the 6th of March in Alaska, were renewed at the White House today. With tears streaming down her face_and her.jZige choked with a big lump in her throat'. she almost gave up in despair when thexde*keeper of Secretary Loeb told her th$t h r case would have to be taken to the )epment of Justice. "I have tried to see.;ibr Attprney General," .she sobbed in broken sentences, "but he has persistently ie(uied to see me. I have tried to see the ilent, and all that I am told Is that I' $tapply to the Depart ment of Justice. :' *od, is there no help for my poor hue . M-ust he be sacri ficed, and my five t e children made fath erless and disgraed?, pan't they just spare his life for our akes? He was always good to us, and Y told such lies on him when he was dd.: It breaks my. heart that I must be t ed await frc n one per son to another' this cold manner. Are all people In W idgton heartless? Will nobody do an ng. to save his life?" Standing beside, grief-stricken mother was a little . a '-, hose eyes filled with tear , her rene elook with emotion. -a gy "Alaska her father is sentenced to die, and unless official action is taken by today of tonnrnw to stay the sentence no word can be gotten to the place: where he is -onfined before the sen tence is carried out. The thought of the anguish in- hia mind apd, the fate that awaits him auSes the mother and child to give way to tears every timae they are turned away from some person they have appealed to for help. In New Orleans- are four more little chil dren of the condemned man, waiting to hear of the efforts of the mother here. Mrs. Bird and her child are not used to the fearfully cold weather Washington Is now experiencing, and are exposing themselves to a dangerous degree. They will continue to make appeals, but the President and At torney General long ago decided that Bird must die, and that they will not interfere with his sentence. - Bird killed two of his mining partners In. -Alaska several years ago, and his crime was a particularly atro cious one, if the testimony of the witnesses could be believed. One of the witnesses was a woman with whom Bird lived In Alaska. He deserted his wife for the wo man, but the wife forgets this, and her only thought Is of the condemned man. The case Is a most pitiable one, and the grief of the poor woman and her child touched the hearts of those who witnessed it today. From the bald facts in the case, Bird is probably not entitled to executive clem ency, but the claim Is that the testimony against him Is by irresponsIble people. DE1NIED USE' OP THE MAILS. Fraud Order Issued Against a .Collec tion Agency. The Post Office Department has issued a fraud order against the American State Law Collection Agency, denying It the use of the nJails In the prosecution of its busi ness. Up to a few months ago the Amer-. ican Jewelry Concern sent to a number of people throughout' the United States small stick pins, which were to be sold and the proceeds turned Into the company. Ten pins were sent to each person, which were to be sold for ten cents each. When the money for the pins was sent in the Jewelry Con cern promised to send each person a hand some watch as a prize. It appears that this company went out of business a few months ago, and ..1 outstanding accounts were turned over to. the. State Law Collec tion Agency for collection. This agency wrote letters to all the persons whose names could be found on the .books of the jewelry company, demandirig payment of the alleged debts. Some of the persons re ceiving these letters were those who had already sent i the ihoney they had received for the stick pins,Ybut to avoid any legal complications thy .ent- in another pay ment. The letterofAh5 State Law -Collec tion Agency ,bo~ *printed notice to the effect that they q ga~M sueceeded in their endeavors to, dool the debtors were* prosecuted.
