DES MOINES. Ia.. Nov. 22. (Special.)
One of the most remarkable pardon cases
In the history of the state was disposed of
todsy by Governor Cummins when he com
muted the life sentence of George Weems
to thirty years In prson. The board of
parole had, upon a compromise, recom
mended commutation to thirty-two years
and the governor cut off two years more,
which, with "good time" earned, leavea
Weems with a year and eleven montha yet
to serve. The remarkable part of it Is that
originally Weems was sentenced to be
hanged and It Is an open secret that the
court Itself would have been in danger and
the jail would have been broken Into and
the prisoner lynched at the time if the
sentence had been a light one. Governor
Drake commuted the death sentence to life
Imprisonment and now Governor Cummins
fixes a term for the sentence to end. The
governor gave aa his reason the good char
acter of the man and the appeals of his
sged soldier father; but in fact there la
acrlous doubt as to the guilt of the pris
oner, this fact becoming known only In
recent years. Weems and two others were
convicted of killing Conductor Redpath In
Des Moines in 194. One of the others
turned state's evidence and got a short
term. The third Is now Insane. The
theory of Weema" friends Is that while he
had been with the party Just before tho
murder he waa not with them at the time
and that the one who turned state's evi
dence was really the guilty person.
One Fell Pardon.
John G. Bteele, an old man, who killed

ernor and the papers were signed today.

A. C. Sheets of Lyon county, serving five

ROCKWELL CITT. Ia., Nov. 22. At an
early hour Saturday morning the Jury In the
trial of John M. Brown, accused of the
murder of his daughter-in-law, Mrs. George
G. Brown, returned a verdict of guilty of
manslaughter, the penalty for which is two
to eight years. The attorneys for the de
fense will undoubtedly ask for a new trial.
The wrime for which Brown was con
victed occurred In the palatial Brown home
at Manaon. Ia., Saturday morning, August
29. It was one of the most sensational
tragedies In the criminal annals of that
section of Iowa. Brown beat to death with
an Indian club his daughter-in-law, Mrs.
George G. Brown. The killing was 'the
outcome of a family quarrel which started
at the breakfast table over the Invalid wife
of tho aged man, whom the young woman
was alleged to have abused. After killing
his daughtei-in-law. Brown walked down
town and surrendered to the town marshal.
Mrs. George G. Brown had been very popu
lar In Manson. She was a leader In the
Congregational church work.
Brown' defense was that he killed the
woman In self-defense and also that her
treatment of him had affected hia mind.

HOT SPRINGS. Va.. Nov. 22,-Presldent-elcct
Taft and Representative Burton of
Ohio had another extended conference Sat
urday, at which the speakership question
was discussed as well as "nearly every
thing else," as Mr. Taft put It afterwards.
What the present state of mind of Mr.
Taft Is on the speakership question and
what will be his future attitude la made
apparent beyond all question In a state
ment for publication by Mr. Burton after
the conference. Mr. Burton first explained
that he was none the less a candidate
for the senate than when he came here,
and that on his return to Washington on
Monday he should give more vigorous at
tentlon to the canvass In Washington. He
"In discussing the question of the speak
ership I am not assuming to seak for Mr.
Taft, but only to expreaa what seems to
me what Is clearly a correct view of the
situation. The president-elect made cer
tain promises during the campaign. One
was for a thorough and honest revision of
the tariff. This does not necessarily mean
that rates In all schedules will be lowered,
nor that any legitimate right or Interest
of either capital or labor will be disre
garded. It doea mean a careful re-examin
ation of the whole subject. Besides the
tariff there were other promises contained
in the party platform and reiterated by the
president-elect which must be fulfilled. No
doubt Mr. Taft would oppose Mr. Cannon
very reluctantly, but aa the head of his
party as well as the president-elect of the
nation he la bound to meet the expectations
of the people and to Insist upon the observ
ance of party pledges.
"The speaker has great power In repress
ing legislation. If thia repressive Influence
should stand In the way there would be but
one course for the president-elect to pursue
and that Is to exert his Influence against
"It Is to be hoped there will be such
harmony and concert of action between the
president-elect and Speaker Cannon that a
contest will be avoided."
Judge Taft made no statement for publi
cation on the -subject. Those who have
talked with him aay that his determination
to prevent "obstruction" Is most vigorous.
Mr. Burton wished to make no prediction
as to what the outcome of thin determina
tion would be, saying that the whole situ
ation, as he saw tt, was contained In his
statement. Regarding the possibility of his
being. a candidate for speaker, Mr. Bur
ton's answer was that he was "none the
less a candidate for senator, because of his
