DEATH WATCH IS IN EFFECT
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Nov. 18.
Asserting his belief that a further
postponement of the execution of
Joseph Hillstrom, a member of tho
Indsutrial Worker, of the World,
would be an unwarranted Interfer
ence with the c'oruse of Justice, Gov
ernor William Spry telegraphed to
President Wilson this afternoon that
he cannot and will not lend himself
or his office to such interference.
The governor's telegram was in
answer to oae received yesterday
from the president requesting a re
consideration of the case of Hill
strom, who was convicted of the
murder of J. O. Morrison, a Salt
lake City grocer, and Morrison's
son, January 10, 1914.
The president's message waa received
by tho governor after resolution adopted
by the convention of the American Fed
eration of Labor at San Francisco, asking
further ronMderatlon of the case had
been telegraphed to the president.

Tho governor had the president's re
manent yesterday and until noon today.
Ills answer was submitted to the Stato
Board of Pardona today and was unani
mously concurred In by them before It
was Bent to the president.
Governor Spry says In his telegram to
President Wilson, declining to Interfere
further with the Hillstrom case, that he
la luitlsfled the president's request Is
based on a misconception of the facts or
that there Is some reason of an Interna
tional nature that the president has not

ernor Bpry's action late today.
A death watch waa placed over Hlll
strom at the state prison this afternoon
and he will be shot to death tomorrow,
prdbabiy earlr in the day. The five men
appointed to execute him have been di
rected to report at the prison at 6 o'clock
tomorrow morning. - - .
Review by Governor,
Reviewing the history of the case, and
particularly the president's action In con
nection with It, the governor says in his
"September 30, you requested a stay of
execution of the sentence to give the
Swedish minister an opportunity to pre-
sent his view of the case. Upon the
same day, at your request only, on the
assumption that you were In possession
of facts not presented to the board, I
granted a resplt until October 16, es-
peclally requesting that the Swedish mln-

'for the sake of humanity and comity
