'Williams Wants a Pardon.
O. A. Williams, the farmer of Union
county who shot a deputy she Iff who was
serving a writ of attachment on htm, has
asked Governor Cummins for a pardon
or for the commutation of hla sentence
of life Imprisonment to one of a definite
term of years. Williams committed a cold-
. blooded murder that would have been pre
vented had b,e not been too proud to tell
the deputy .that the debt had been paid.
The deputy was sent to the farm to serve
the attachment In satisfaction of a debt.
Before the deputy reached the farm Wil
liams left and went to town and paid off
the debt. When he returned to hla farm
the deputy awaited him. The deputy did
not know the debt had been paid that
day by Williams and Williams knew It,
but would not tell him. Ho denied that
the deputy had the right to serve the nt-
, tachmnnt. but the deputy, believing he was
discharging Ms sworn duty, started tn
read the attachment, and while he read It
was shot by Williams.
Williams Is now tX years old and has
been at Fort Madison penitentiary since
December, 1893, and claims that for 1ft
months he haa lived on nothing but bread
and milk. He has some land In Arkansas
leased and wants to get out so that he
can cut the walnut lumber off It.
