THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, TUESDAY MORNING, APRIL 5, 1921 PAGE FIVE AGAIN SET DATE OF FOR HANGING 1CHIN MARTIN Supreme Court Affirms Verdict Of Lower Court; Cold-Blooded Slaying Of Arthur De Steunder In 1919 Nachln Martin will be hanged at tjej, rtato penitentiary on June 10. 'ihdi was the iudement of the eu- preroa court yesterday affixed to an affirmation of the-Judgment and con viction 'of Martin, with a death sen tence, imposed by Judge Sweeney of the Yavapai county superior court a yeai' ago. The time fixed by the su perior court for the hanging of Martin hsrvlng passed, it devolved upon the supreme court to set another limit on his life. In. the opinion dismissing the ap peal, written by Justice Baker, there is a graphic review of Martin's crime. On Octobet 4 of 1919 the half in cinerated body of a man was. found along the road between the towns pt Kingman and Seligraan. Tho body was identified, by means of a badge and other marks, as that of a Cana dian soldier ,a member of tho 20th Battalion Canadian Infantry. He proved to be Arthur De Steunder who had served overseas and, had been wounded. The body later was def initely identified by a brother, John Emil De Steunder, who came on from Canada, Shot In the Back Da Steunder had been shot in the back with a $8-callber bullet which passed through bis body and wl found In the half-burnad clothing in front. The shooting had been com mttted In an automobila which from the tracks was found to be- headed westward, and from' this Automobile tha hnriv had hpan dragged fcbout 150 feet to the place where the murderer had tied to burn it. It later was learned that De Steun der and Martin were traveling to the coast Jn an automobile, and they had been seen by several parties along the way. They had been heard to quarrel over money matters, De Bteunder claiming that Martin owed him money, w hich Martin denied. On the night of October 4 Martin arrived In Kingman alone and regist ered under another name than that of Martin. He wnt on to the coast, anA anme weeke later was arrested at Tettem, Cal still in possession of tho automobile. There were blood pots on the machine which, it ap peared, an ineffectual attempt had been made to remove. Under the ear not nf th machine there waa found a, blood-stained muslin bag. There also were the soldier's" trousers of Martin who had exchanged the ser virp suit hfl had worn in Arizona for a civilian suit. These trousers bore blood-spots which Martin said had come from a finger he had, -cut. CimA Manv Cumm But more damaging than anything else were .certain articles Known io have belonged to De Steunder, among them the discharge papers of the latter. They were found in the house where Martin was stopping at Tettem. Martin explained that these things had been turned over to him by De Steunder who had left him and gone southward for some point in Arizona with a man named "Jimmy.' In aa earlier story, Martin had stated that ha bad traveled alone into the west from Chicago. The case was not docketed in the supreme court until March 4 of this year. There was nothing before the court but the bare record. No at torney appeared for the appellant. o- EASIER IRONING If the larger pieces of the ironing such as sheets, counterpanes, etc., are folded and used as a pad while tha smaller pieces are being ironed much time can be saved, aa the large pieces will need little more attention after you get around to them.

OFFICIALS FROWN Dill GDAST CITY PLAN OF 'FOREST OF STATES' Advising that a bit of educational work be carried onin Los Angeles that the city might not violate federal and state laws in its advertising ef forts, .authorities have halted its latest "get before the public projoct" The city recently attempted to es tablish a so-called "forest of States" in Exposition park which has been held by the department of agriculture as a "prolific means of distributing undesirable pesta.' With the ingenuity for which it is noted. IjOs Angeles conceived the idea of getting before every state in the union by the request of a tree to be planted by Its state society In what would become "A Forest o( States." Arizona promptly sent its contribu tion and many other states followed suit. It is generally believed that there are sufficient pests in California without other states contributing and such Is the view taken bythe federal authorities.. "Who of tho uninitiated ever had reason to contemplate the many, con siderations which must be met in any project inaugurated by a state or government tor the protection of the agricultural interests of its lands against the introduction of plant pests and diseases? While tho fact may be recognized that there are regular channels which perhaps con tribute more than others to the pos sible introduction of "undeauible pests, beyond this their reasoning does not go and beyond their par ticular line of thought it is difficult to convince them of the error of their ways. Thus it often happens that their ideas when carried out result in embarrassment, not only to the orig inators, but to those who are often but remotely conected therewith. "An instance of this kind recently has been called to the attention of the California department of agriculture and furnishes a classical example of how some of these original ideas work out. Some one conceived the idea of establishing a so-called "For est of States." in Exposition park, Los Angeles' Word waa sent to all Of tha . different- states requesting each to furnish a tree for this pur pose which would be planted by its state society under the auspices of the park superintendent. While a number of the states have endeavored to comply with the Los Angeles re quests, some have found, however, that trees which they desired to have planted to- represent their state were not allowed to be caoved interstate by the federal regulations; others were denied entry by the laws of the state of California. "Apropos to this the director of agriculture is In receipt of the fol lowing communication from C. L.. Marlatt. chairman of tha federal hor ticultural board: "My attention has been twice called to the fact that the Los Angeles chamber of commerce is endeavoring to have established a "Forest of States" in the Exposition park of thnt city in co-operation with the city park commission. I know of no more prolific means of distributing unde sirable pests than enterprise of this sort. Incidentally, no less than two states (Pennsylvania and Maine) have attempted to fill this order by send ing pine trees In violation of federal and state quarantines. I believe the sending from Pennsylvania actually got through and was destroyed by the authorities. We have advised the deputy forest commissioner of Maine of the impossibility of complying with the request. It seems to me it would be a good plan to do a little educational work in relation to this enterprise and for the purpose of pre venting the example of Los Angeles being followed by other cities of California." , In the museum of the school of medicine in Paris, moulds of brains of remarkable personages of France are on exhibition. .. TO PRINT SESSION LAWS ABOUT JULY 1 A good many inquiries are being received at the office of the secretary of state as to the time when copies of the session laws of the Fifth legis lature will be available. The reply in that it probably will be some time after July 1. Thera is no money now in the fund for the publication of tho laws, but there is effective legisla tion preventing tho transference of money from one fund to another, as in times past, so that no other money is available now for that purpose. It will be recalled that among the bills passed by the legislature was one making an emergency appropria tion for the printing of copies of the session laws of certain previous legis latures, but none was provided-ex cept in the general appropriation bill ST T IS ARIZONA ASSEMBLY J. M'K. Redmond, assistant sec retary of state, yesterday received ' letter from . President Harding con veying his appreciation of a certain resolution adopted by the Fifth legis lature, commending the president for his selection of Senator A. B. Fall to be secretary of the Interior. The president desired Mr. Redmond, ta make known his appreciation to the members of the legislature. Though no reference is made to that in his letter, the president probably is more appreciative of the fact that one branch of the legislature whleh commended this official art la Den-: ocratlc, while the other is Republican only by the slenderest of majorities.. for the printing of the laws of tha session just ended.
