The decision embodies the gov ernor's Instructions to Sheriff McCallum to enforce the sentence of the law. The letter to the sheriff of Otoe county tells the tale : D. W. McCallum , Esq. , Sheriff of Otoo County , Nebraska City , Neb. Dear Sir : Having carefullv considered the reasons pre sented In favor of a commutation ot the sen tence of death to IniDrlsonment for life In the case of David W. Hoffman , 1 nin constrained to Inform you that 1 find no sufficient reason for Interfering with the execution of the sentence imposed upon him by the court. The deliberate wrecking of a train and the destruction of human life Is a crime so wanton and atrocious , so cruel In the plan ping and Its results , that , in my Judgment , the severest penalty inflicted by the law Is none too severe lor all who are concerned In I have been reminded that the accomplice of Hoffman In the perpetration of this fiend ish deed , has escaped with a comparatively light sentence. I have nothing to do with that. Hut the fact furnishes no Justification for my relieving Hoffman of the fate that awaits him. An example must be mado. with the hope that It may deter others from the commission ot such deeds , and thus secure safety to the travelling public against the perpetatlon ot such crimes. You will at once communicate my decision to the con demned man. You now have your duty to perform In this ense ns thu Inw directs. Very respectfully > ours , JOHN M. THAYKB.

CmoAao , July 19. | Special Telegram to the UEE.J The selection ot a Jury to try the boodle case Is drawing to a close , not from any apparent desire on the part of the defendants to hurry It up so much as from their Inability to prolong It much longer. They are fast drawing to the end of their peremptory challenges and once they are exhausted It will not take long to find four men who , In the eye ot the law , are compe tent to try the defendants. There wore no sensational features about the examination of talesman to-day , but the exciting Incident of the dny occurred Just after the Jurors hnd been taken from the court room.

( Special Telegram to the HKI : . ] Thu meeting of the Western league to-daj which adjourned at midnight was productive of some rnther stnrtllng results in the matter of officers , nn entire clmngo being made , President Throw resigning nnd ilr. E. E. Mengas , of Knnsns City , tnklug his place. Secretary Murpliy was unanli.iously bounced and H. E. Me- Kelvy , of Omaha , chosen his successor. This notion Is the result ot the decided nntlpathy ex-President Threw possessed og.ainst Mur phy on ncconnt of the Len\enworth meeting , coupled with thu hitter's refusal to remit n line of &J5 imposed on Dave llowo some time since for ouestloulng the decision of ox-Umpire Hunt on strikes. The change was not accomplished without somethings of a struggle nnd cnused n long and nnlmnted discussion. At last It wns evident tlmt if President Tlirew did not resign a split would occur on the seciotnryshlp question , so ho tendered his resignation and It was promptly accepted. After the election of Menges , the considera tion ot Murphy was resumed. The question wns put to n vote nnd ho was removed , Omaha , Lincoln. St. Joe , Hastings and Den ver voting for his removal. McKelvy was then unanimously chosen. Murphv wnu not niesent. It is practically settled that Wichita will comu into the league , as the club has offered to pay $100 to visiting clubs nnd accept n ST ( > Kimrnntce.
