9 RICH GIVEN DEATH SENTENCE tfoung Virginian Displays Re markable Stoicism Answers Questions without Emotion. EXECUTION WEEK OF MAY 19 Displays Trace of Former Jaunti- nces as He Leaves Court Appeal for Executive Clemency to Be Made. Hoston, Jim. it. With the appearance of n man who hurt abandoned alt hope of llfp, the Rev. clarence V. T. Hlehcson stood to-chiy nt thi' bur of Justice, d. c lured his guilt of the piemcdltat"l nmrder of Ills former sweetheart. Avis l.lnnoll, and without h tremor heard Judge Sanderson sentence nlm to death In the flfcti-li .hair during the week beginning Mil! 10. While displaying n remarkable stoicism, the young Virginian appeared to thine who crowded the little court mom as It he were conducting his own funeral. 1 f t, when he walked out of the court room, there wns a a trare of the old- time Jnuntltieo that seemed to many to Indicate that hK fight was not yot Ilnlshed To the half dozen question which .t-nlgc Sanderson tint to lllehe'on to-day, is to whether he realized the full nature and flfoiit of his ncktiow ledgment of guilt, In answered without the slightest i hi I'nin, always In the nffil matlve. lachoson's connscl declared after tho proceedings that an appeal for executive if nenev would follow soon and that iv effort would lie made to obtain ri Imprisonment Instead of death as lie punishment. Whether the petition dl be based upon Hleheson's services to the county in malting his confession, ir upon a claim of Incsponslbilty, has hi' yet been decided. ATTORNKYS DOPHT LIvC.ALlTV. .-ome well-known attorneys remarked .-night that Judge Sanderson's action ii accepting the plea and ordering it spread upon the t coords- of the court might have an echo in the supieme ourt, on the ground that a jury alone, otild accept such a plea. When Rlcheson was arraigned, Clerk Manning said: "f'larcnce V. 'I'. Rlcheson. this indict -nent charges you with murder In the irst. dBfrw'. On November IS. you pleJd sd not guilty to It. Do you desire to re .raet that plea?" "Yes sir," replied Illeheson. "What say you to the Indictment?" isketl the clerk. "Guilty." was the reply without a hango In tone. The judge then summarized the Indict ment and defined deliberate premeditated malice aforethought In committing mur Jer by poison. "The only penalty provided by law," said the Judge, "for murder In the first degree Is death. Have you pleaded guilty to murder In the first decree after due consideration and with the full knowledge and understanding of the nature nnd effect of such a plea?" "Yes sir," was the calm leply. "Is the plea made by you fiee and vnluntarv?" continued tho judge. "Yes Mr " "Did you consult counsel with reference to the nature of the offense nnd the plea?" asked the Judge. Again came the simple "Yes sir." CONFPSSION READ TO COUNT. fler Judge Sanderson ban ordered the plea entered upon the records, he asked District Attorney Pelletlor If It was desired that sentence be Imposed, The district attorney replied that beforo moving for such sentence he wished to read the confession Hleheson's acknowl edgment of guilty In writing which he rent to the district attorney nnd to the i ourt through his counsel last Friday, was then read and madi a part of the. l ecnrd. The district attorney raid: ' It Is my opinion that the evidence which the Commonwealth has accumulat ed would be sufficient for an ordinary Jury to Hurt this defendant guilty of murder in the first degree." Judge Sanderson then looked toward the tall form of the young Vlrglrlan and said: "Clarence V. T. Illeheson have you uny t dng to say why sentence of death should not be passed upon you?" The viiung man apparently swallowed a )i ird lump In his throat, but without even 3 shadow across his face, he replied: No sir, nothing further than I have Mate d " Itislng Judge Sanderson pronounced the leath penalty ending with the impressive words- "And may (5od In Ills Infinite goodness have mercy upon your soul." APPKAHANf'K OP RESPONDENT. Rlcheson's npearance In the court to riav differed but little from that at the tltnp of his arrnlKnment.

His paleness was paitlcnlarly marked In contrast with his raven black hair Ills words were evenly modulated, al though at times so low that Judge Sander. son had to request him to repeat them. Except when he spoke Hleheson's mouth was tightly closed, the usually expressive Hps helng presred ilimlv over teeth that seemed to be locked together.

Mnny of the manufacturing interests, have bejn engaged with Inventories and the coming week will see this work completed ami mills that have been closed (luting that period will resume, Some plants which have been Idln for several months and others that have been worklntr short time will resume nearly normal. On the whole the outlook for the coming months Is bright and an optimistic tone is apparent Uuruing the eranlto monutneturera reports Washington, Jan. V Secretary of the Interior Walter I.. Fisher devotes a large part of his annual report to the needs of Alaska. In addition to advocating mora liberal land laws, es pecially with a view to the speedy de velopment of that faraway section of the United States, he urges the con struction by the government of u cen tral trunk ll.in rallioad from tldownter to the Panama and Yukon; the reser vation of a sufficient amount of th-.. oal lands to provide for the future needs of the navy, this oal to be mined by the government . more llh- ral appropriation for roads and trails. and the ndoptlon of a form of terri torial government, a commission form being suggested, better adapted to Its remote situation and peculiar local conditions. Knlarged application of the leasing principle as applied to the public, flo- maln, especially a liberal leasing In' for the development of the mineral re sources of Alaska, particularly Its coal lands, and Immediate consideration by Congress of water-power development nnd control are recommended by the secretary. A general overhauling of conditions in Alaska is needed, he says. CONSERVATION AND PSK. "The great public movement for the conservation of our national resources," says Mr. Fisher, "is pot opposed to prompt and wise development of the public domain. The essential thinn Is to see that under the guise of settlement do not permit more exploltntlon, which In the last analysis retnrds both settlement and development. The man on the ground should be the object of our solicitude, and we should protect him ngainst those who would place upon his shoulders any unnecessary but den." In regard to agricultural land settlers, Secretary Fisher holds that the law should Insist absolutely upon cultivation, hut "should permit the relaxation of the rule requiring residence dining the first two years." A change In the law Is prn- poed to peimlt the rettler to acquire title at any time after five years from the date of entry and after be has lived for three years upon his land. No land should be open to home stead entry," he declares, "except thai which Is really suitable for homes; and then the homemnker should be aided in every proper way. The timber nnd stone act should be Immediately repealed, and also the act authorizing the cutting of timber on mineral lands. They hold out a constant Invitation to abuse and to mere exploitation. PPHI.IC RANHK TIRPOIIM. "The public range cannot be properly administered under the existing law. It should he leased for Kr.ir.lnK purposes un der the broad administrative discretion of th:s secretary of the Interior. At present tho range Is being destioyed." It 11 unsound both In pilnclplc and in practice, he say.s, that permits for the de velopment of water power are revocable at any time at the will of the odmlnlstra tlve officials. municipalities. At the nresent time our Inheritance tax is about one-seventh of i what It Is In other countries, I "Tlie levying of an Income lax by the , State N not practicable. If we should put a t.i on Incomes, all big wealth would .iy, 'Yh, I reside in New Jersey.' They would not liw there, they would simply say they had a residence there and that Is all that the lw requires. Then New ,Ieiey would probably lake off Its Income ta to get Ncv Yoikers to claim n residence there. ILLICIT III DDI Nil OK STATICS. "Our form of goveriment permits thN dibit bidding for privilege" between Stntes. And so we have a i orporatlon system without legulations well nigh disgraeef n! Some of these Corporations have reached the point where the federal government must step In. Kvery othei country does It "Heal estate pays 1 !-4 per cent, on Its j value. Presumably, under the law. rail road bonds nnd other forms of securities pay the same. A a tnat'er of fact they do not.

So we have this monstrous system of taxation because of Illicit compe tition between our States, and T say that the people will Insist upon a form of taxation that reaches the wenlth of this country and does not take It sole- Iv from our property owners.
