Thomas Puncbion, the'; wife-mnrderer
whose execution had been set by the
supreme court for to day, has been re
spited ny uovernor stone, for one
month, or until April 8rd, next. Few
people believe that Puncbion will hang
at that lime, tbe - general impres
sioo being that, In . view of the extraor
dinary ' circumstances ; of tbe case,
Governor Stone will oommute tbe
death penalty to a term of imprison
ment. --..,;'':..., ..
Punchion's predicament is of his
own making. His crime was deliber
ate and his guilt fully proved .; On his
nrst trial, however, tbe Jury ' was In
olined to a lenient view and let him off
with twenty years imprisonment.
The oonvioted man and his counsel.
however, thought that better than this
might be done, and A new trial was
secured. It resulted in Puncbion being
again found guilty, but this time the
death penalty was imposed. The case
went to tho supreme court, where the
decision was affirmed and a day of
execution set. Punohion has since
several times expressed himself to the
effect that be wishes he had taken the
twenty years and have done with it.

Milwaukee, Wis., Maroh 13. The
coming of the republican stale conven
tion to Milwaukee, next week, to se
lect the delegates-at-large to the St.
Louis; convention, has been heralded
by the quiet arrival in the city to-day
of a coterie of prominent republicans
bailing from various parts of the state,
and ttieir early presence on the scene
has given rise to many hints of dark
plots and deep-laid schemes, which are
expected to - culminate on the conven
tion floor next Wednesday. The . vast
amount of wire-pulling and. button
holing which is being Indulgedin has
no reference, as might be supposed by
the outsider, to the candidacies of Mo.
Kinley, Reed, Allison or Morton, for it
is conceded in all quarters that the
Wisconsin delegation t will fro to St.
