interesting places and things in her

The announcement that Governor
Mickey had decided to liberate Frank
Keating from tho penitentiary May I,
has been recalled. Keating is serving
a .seven years' sentence for highway
robbery. He was convicted in Web
ster county of holding up and robbing
John Rose, tho proprietor of an ele
vator at Rosemont. Tho matter has
been presented on bohalf of tho pris
oner by ex-Senator William Warner of
Dakota county. Keating formerly
lived in that county and has relatives
there. His prison papers showed that
ho had served ten years in tho Minne
sota ponitentiary mid that ono of his
eats is partly chewed oir. It was said
that now ovideuco had been presented
by Mr. Warner, but citizens of Web
ster county aro protesting against a
commutation and will be on hand to
tell what they know of Keating. It
has been asserted that Keating was
never in Webster county. Tho citi
zens who paid about $3,000 as expense
of a trial will prove that ho was chased
and caught after tho robbery. Tho
report that tho governor had commut
ed his sentence has stirred up a com
motion in Webster county. Tho gov
ernor will givo both sides ample hear
ing before acting. State Journal.
