Sutherland's first Impulse was to

The latter course he followed.
Where he went ho could not tell, be

sworo out a warrant for his arrest, but
tho latter disappeared. Tho constable
finally located his man at Dotmnzn, and
went there Sunday night to arrest him.
He.eaptured Mcllroom without trouble,
and etartcd 'with his prisoner for Jenny

last seen of Murray alive. The con
stable's body was found lying by the
roedsttlo next morning, about thirty
yards from tho shaft at tho Bonanza

behind his body, and .his neck wnS

Tho ghastly discovery had been made
by two casual passers-by, nnd when
they saw that Murray was doail be

that ho had long urged the United

not be content with tho recognition of

acknowledgement of absolute politi

people fould not bo content with the
pcourso ndvltted by the administration.
Inasmuch as thd Cubans for more
than two years on many battlefields
had demonstrated their valor nnd love
.for liberty, he felt thnt they had
earned recognition of their political
liberty and Hiat It ought to be accord

In a written opinion from tho pon oi
Chief Justice Deatty, which Is con
curred In by all but one of his asso
ciates, the eourt affirms tho Judgment
of Judge Ushers In remanding tho pris
oner to St. Quentln until tho dnto set
for his execution, but reverses the sen
fencing -of Durrani to bo hanged on
Nov, 11, and remands the case to Uio
supreme court with Instructions to
proceed according to law- As the re

and the court holds that execution can
only be stayed now by tlio Issuance of
a certificate of probable cause, It only
remains to resentence tho condemned
murderer, which will probably be done
to-day. Justice narroute dlssusntssl
froai this opinion, maintaining that
Durrani's appeals should have been
dismissed, as the lime required by law
