He added that no defendant In his recollection had I, ad the benefit of more appeals to both the state and federal courts. "1 cannot find In the record of the Fiank case, or in the governor's lengthy statement of attempted jus tification one reason why the gover nor should interfere with the Judg ments of the courts in the case," said the solicitor.
