Bo-ilop. May IS. No inmate of Charlestovn State prison stavo War- , den Bridges less troublo to-day than Jld Clare.nco V. T. Richoson, poisoner ' of Avis Llnzell. From tho time of hln removul yosterdav from tha Cin.rls i street Jail to the death houso In th ) prison, tho former elorg"man, who in under sentence to be electrocuted next week, has prcsorve.1 tho calmest de meanor and submlttej to the rigor oi j prison discipline with perfe t com posure. lu view of tho fact that Rlchuson in known to bo of a highly emotional I and nervous nature, his solf-possea-slon is a puzzle to the authorities. An the reports of tho allenlhts employed bv Governor Foss havo not yet bveu filed, and his case has not been sub mitted to the executive council, thoso who are watching the prisoner believe, I that lie mnv still hold some hopo of reprlevo or commutation. Again ho may havo become resigned to his fato nnd stanl ready to die in expiation of his crime. Which view Is sustaining him is a question no on seems abla to answer. Rlcheson's stay at Charlestown thus far has been marked by a sphynxllke sllenco regarding his case. Not onco has ho given or asked InfoTmatlon of his guards. Tho only request which he has made which might havo significance was a call ate to-day for some books from the I hrary. Rlcheson sent word to the warden that he would llko to have the prison chaplain, the Row Herbert W ritehbins. visit him. When Mr. Stebbins called, Rlcheson asked him to got several books of a religious nature for him. Thoso the chaplain p-ocured from the prison library for the prisoner. He declined to Kivo th" ,l,1"s,ot tho TV'"10";, 7ho laUy papers were also supplied to Rlcheson. HIS CASE NOT BROFGHT UP. The information was given out from the Governor's oHlce to-night that tho reports of the threo alienists, Doctors Btedtnan, Frost and Tuttle, had not boer Hied with tho Governor and that further lie had not been able to form any decision as to- whether ho would make a recom mendation to the council for clemency Tlie council met to-day, following Its usual custom, but tho Rlcheson mntter was not brought up. William A. Morse, counsel for Rlch eson. who visited him to-day said: "Tho case stands Just ns It did yesterday morning, except that In carrying ous the decree of this law a physical step Iras) been taken by the transfer of tho prison er from the Chnrles street Jail to the State prison. To me this docs not mean anything, for he can bo reprieved Just ns oasily In prison as In Jail, if the Gov ernor says tho word. That word depends, upon the report that Is to come, and un til it has been made and digested by tho Governor. Rlcheson Is no better and no , worse olf than ho has been for soveral days. Personally, I believe that Oov enwr Fuss will refer this petition to the council, for I can not understand how three such noted specialists can fall to adjudge Rlcheson Irresponsible after tho verv thorough examination they havo made ot him."
