"The supreme court of Texas once upheld a pardon under like circum stances." said the governor, to his In terviewer, "and in this case I take the view, that the men acted under duress, as soldiers and were no more responsible for their acts than yon would be If I pointed a pistol at your head and ordered yon to do some thing." The case is now pending in the New Mexico supreme court. A suit asking an Injunction was filed In the district court at Santa Fe by attorney Clancy. The district court issued the injunction osked for. The case was then appealed to the supreme court. "The suit was brought on the ground that an old law required the recommendation of the prison board before a governor could fasti a par don." said Gov. Larrasolo. The law was an old territorial law and there has been doubt about its constitu tionality. Governors have repeatedly ipnored it. Now its validity is ques tioned.

MMdatefe CaMlm TtmUc XMscussion of the question of man dates on the floor of the assembly of the learne of nations seemed today to be probable. Statements of delegates reflected the view that before the end of the present meeting, the whole question would be fully considered.

In addition, the council of the league is said to have delayed giving information re quested In relation to other matters. Dessastd IftfcrMttea. There is a strong current of opinion ! In the assembly that the mandate un- : der which the powers fix their own terms are not properly mandates. an1 the question may be thrown back upon the supreme allied conference f sufficient Information has not been secured before Thursday night. On the program today was the task of electing new members to the league, choosing of four new elective members of the council and disposing of questions regarding "white slave traffic It appeared that Austria probably would be admitted to the league with out opposition and that Bulgaria also would be accorded membership. In the case of Bulgaria. France. It was said, probably would refuse to vote. It seemed probable that Brazil again would be riven a nlace on the council and that similar honor would be give Spain China had many supperter as a successor to Greece and It appeared Norway would replace Belgium. "White Slave Traffic The propositions regarding the "white slave" traffic are that the countries which adhered to the inter national convention of 1904 be Invited to send delegates to another Inter national conference to be held before the next assembly; also that the coun cil appoint a committee to invesii xala tne deportation of women and children In Asia Minor.

Questions by I his attorneys were with a view to t showing he had killed Sergt. Bierne I in selfdefence. bat cross examination developed several new angles in the case and admisstpns which th state t considered damaging to the oause of the defendant. At the conclusion ot Sands's testimony attorneys for the i state declared he bad proven the most ! valuable witness th state has had in ! the case. ; Until the tun that the Jury was ! first sent oat tiler had been grave doubt as to. just how th defendant I received the bruis across his fore- j head on tbe day of the tragedv.

Ten witnesses were called in all daring the day and the defence wove a story of selfdefence while th state attempted to bring out that Sergt. Bierne was shot down without any known cause. Another strong point tn favor of tb state was the fact that Sands had used abusive language to Sergt. Bierne before shooting him. Most at the witnesses called were for the defence. With tbe conclusion of Sands' testi mony court adjourned until oclock today. MAJ. EBY TESTIFIES IN THE SANDS MURDER CASE Maj.
