Tn a quarrel over a woman on a ranch near Fresno, Calif., Monday night, Ed Turpln shot and killed Fred Usher. He clalma self-defenae. Governor Will Bo Asked to Extend Clemency o Murderer. Determined that Joseph Anderson alias Joe Betts, shall not hang for the murder of Engineer Logan, the crime of which he was convicted by a Jury in the circuit court last winter, Dlans have been made to appeal to Governor Chamberlain for a reprieve, should the appeal to the supreme court prove futile. The appeal has been extended till next Saturday, and Anderson's attorney, John A. Jeffrey, Says that the right of appeal will not be forfeited. The date of Anderson's hanging has been set at a week from next Friday June 26. But the appeal will prevent the execution. Should the supreme court affirm the conviction the plan Is to appeal for executive clemency on the ground of Insanity. Attorney Jeffrey said this morning that there is no question of Anderson's insanity, and that It would have been offered as a defense at the trial had not An derson absolutely refused to permit It. "Anderson had his head stove In when he was a boy, and the effects of it are still noticeable on his skull," said Attorney Jeffrey this morning. "He would not nermlt a defense of Insanity at the trial saying that he would rather hang than be adjudged Insane. But such a fear is often one of the symptoms of Insanity. "In my opinion we have excellent grounds for reversal of the conviction or appeal, but should the supreme court take a different view of the matter, we shall ask that a lunacy commission be appointed to determine Anderson's sanity, and will ask the governor for a pardon on that ground. If Anderson is adjudged Insane, he will be committed to the asylum, of course." The time for filing the appeal would have expired Monday, but Attorney Jeffrey secured an extension of the time to Saturday, and said this morn Ing he would have his appeal perfect ed by that day without fail. Ander son Is now being held at the state pen, Itcntlary. The conviction was secured on cir cumstantial evidence against the prls. oner, being a long coat, found at the scene of the murder, which was Iden tified as having been purchased by Anderson, and he was seen near the place where Logan was murdered, shortly before the shots were fired, wearing the coat.
