t a long nd bitter cbntest. The'affl-i
davit charging that the men were In the'
tte of Idaho at the time of the murder'
being admittedly false In fact, though true
as a compliance with the letter and spirit ;
of the ktatute, according to the officers of!
the state, gave rise to widespread dlacua-j
alon as to the propriety' of the action , of
the-two states Involved." ' ' '
Than throughout the country went the
cry; that the three prisoners had been kid-!

rtgbta. . This phase of the- qiwntton was
Utef tested, by mean of -writs of habeas
corpus and an appeal to the United States
supreme court, the result being a victory

lawyer that the fate of the case here and
