FROM THE JAWS OF DEATH. I'nlrlok Iloylo llt-nplloil nt lMtvnnUvUlo Tnonty Minute Short of Hunglug. fciiWAltDsviu.K, 111., Jan. II). Tho ex ecution of Patrick Boylo for tlio murder of John Muunch, which wits to huvo taken place hero today, Iiiim been post poned by the interposition of Governor Fifer. The court ordered tho execution to take placo between 8 nnd 1 o'clock. Everything was in readiness for the. in llictlon of tho jwnalty. Even the grave had been du. Boylo letired last night at 11 o'clock, after having spent tho ovening rather pleasantly with his fellow-prisoners. IIo plept until 0 o'clock this morning. On getting up ho dressed in n now black suit, which he had been provided, and put on a collar and necktio. At 8:15 ho naked for a cocktail, after which ho or dered breakfast, which comprised broiled chicken and other epicuiean dishes, llo drank some port wine, later somo brandy, then lit iv rfgnr and quietly awaited developments Sinco Boylo's sentenco strong appeals huvo been mndo to tho governor to com mute tho punishment to imprisonment for life. Ilio caso was also presented to William Lano Booker, tho British consul-general in Now York, but ho could give no nid. On Thursday Governor Fifer disixjlled all hopes of executive in tervention'by sending a letter hero stat ing that after carefully considering tho application for commutation ho found no good reiison for interfering. Tho inarch to tho scaffold was fixed at 10:y0 this morning. Sheriff llotso and his assistants yrcro preparing to tako tho prisoner out, when at 10:10 a messenger upneured with a telegram from tho gov ernor, respiting tho prisoner until Satur day next. This telegram was subse quently verified by ono from tho secre tary of state and u second ono from tho governor. , Tho action of tho governor at this lato moment created much surprise nnd spec ulation. Boylo was not informed of tho facts until after dinner. Shortly beforo dinner lie showed somo impatience and inquired why tho proceedings did not go on. There was f.01110 talk of lynching him, but it is not likely any such an nt- tempt will 1)0 made. Boylo was born in County Claro, Iro land, nnd landed in this country ono year ago next Monday. IIo worked at tho Chain of Rocks near St. Lous for somo timo, and when tho murder was committed was on his way from St. Louis to Chicago. J.llto tho lluiulur Cabin. CiiANDLr.it, Ok., Jan. 10. A report comes to this city of tho finding of a house in tho denso wood along tho river over in tho Indian country which had been deserted, and an examination of which solves n mystery which has been puzzling tho people in that section for soveral years. Tho houso was situated in a denso pieco of timber, nnd was about amilo off tho stago road. It was np proached by a circuitous trail through tho woods, nnd was in such 11 situation that it was discovered only by accident. For years it has boon a matter of fro qnent occurrenco that travelers havo disappeared when traveling along this road, and no trace of them was over after discovered. On soveral ocensions search has been made for tho missing parties, but such search has id ways been fruitless. Lately tho United States marshals havo been making it very warm for .tho outlaws who havo infested tho Territory, and tho result has been that many of them havo lied to other parts until tho storm blows ovor. It is evident that tho houso Bpoken of was tho rendezvous of somo of tho rob bers, for it was built for that very pur pose, ns is evident from its structure. It is a small cabin of threo rooms, leading 0110 into tho other in a lino. Near tho door which leads from tho first to tho second room is a largo trap door, which a person passing from ono room to tho othor would bo comiwlled to step upon. Tho trap-door swings down ward nnd is held in placo with an ar rangement similar to that used on scaf folds, nnd it was so arranged that a jer Bon from tho rear room could spring tho trap and send tho victim to tho bottom of a deep hole. It was evident that it wns used for this purposo, for tho bottom of tho hole was covered with jagged rocks, and on many of them could bo found dried blood and hair. Drugged Into a Fiirmico.
