grounds, to-wit: (A) That
said conviction was had with

alledged killing occurred;and
when the public mind was un- !
duly excited. (B) That
great deal of new evidence
which was not available at
time of trial was not made
known at trial or before, be
cause the persons who know
the facts did not make..same
known, until it was too late
to ask a new trial by reason 1
of newly discovered testimony. .
That such newly discovered
testimony is now a record in
your Excellency's office and
the force and effect of same is
easily accessable to you. That
such evidence would have
shown that said J. A. Regan
acteä clearly in self defense.
(C) That, on change of venue

had been jointly indicted with
said J. E. Regan, but after
severance and after trial of
said Regan, obtained a change
