thorough reconoldnratlon of the elm be

and advleahillty of such a course.
"Tour Interference In the rase may
hava elevated It to an undue Importance,
and receipt of thousands of letters de
manding the release of Hlllstrom, regard
less cf hla guilt or Innocence, may attach
a peculiar Importance to It, but the case
is Important In t'tah only as establishing,
after a fair and Impartial trial, the guilt
of one of the perpetrators of one of the
most atrocious murders ever committed
In this state. It Is also Important by
reason of tha fact that thla case haa had
more careful and palnatakln conaldera
tlon at tha hands of the proper officials
of rteh than any other like case In the
history of the state.

"As to your suggestion that Justice re

Uos In the courts of this state Is not
Justified. Three croups of attorneys have
represented Illllatrom In the proceedings
before the district court, the supreme
oourt and the Board of rardons.
"The first group was employed by Hlll
strom to conduct his defense. 'The sec
end group was engaged during tha prog
ress of the trial, participated In the de
fense, represented him before the su
preme oourt and before the Board of Par
dona. The third croup, I am Informed,
was employed In Hlllstrotn'e behalf by
the Swedish minister. No fair-minded
person acquainted - with the record has
any doubt of HUlatrom's guilt. The
Board of Pardons with moat painstaking
care has Investigated every rumor, every
suggestion and every clue that might
tend to establish the Innooence of this
man, and has moat earneatly pleaded
with him to shed any light on his move
ments and whereabouts on the night of

months since he was charged with the
crime the board has stood, and even now
stands, ready to make further Investiga

tangible fact or ciroumstanoe that would
tend to establish HUlstrom's lnnonoenoe,
It Is a significant fact that those only
are appealed to who have no knowledge
of the facta and those only demand clem

strom's favor or who demand his release
regardless of his guilt

Omaha Girl Returns to Stage
Word conies from New York thst Msy
Naudain, a former Omaha girl, has
llgned un m-lth Himnvnlpln and will
sing the leading pert In the new opera,
"Katlnka," that la to be put on shortly
In New York City.
May Naudain, who subsequently mar
ried C H. fleorHA ! waII knnwn In
Omaha by many of tha society set of
fifteen to eighteen years ago. Her par
ents were Mr. and Mrs. Thomas N. Nau
dain and for many years they lived In
cording to this hoy's Story, which was
corroborated, on many points i hy other
evidence, two masked men entered the
store with drawn pistols snd saying.
We've got you now," opened fire on
Morrison, who foil mortally woundod with
a bullet through his chest. Arllng Morri
son ran to an Icebox In ths store, seised
a .M-caltber revolver and fired. Before
the boy could shoot again he fell pierced
by three bullets, and died almost In
stantly. The men then ran fropi the
tore, one of them exclaiming that he
was shot, and were observed to run south
ward from the store. The surviving son
bent over his father, who became uncon
scious after having Inquired where hla
aisallants were, and died soon afterward.
Arrest of Illllatrom.
Hlllstrom, also known as Joe Hill, was
srreeted three days after the shooting on
taformetlon given by a doctor near Mur
ray, Utah, two and a halt miles south of
the scene of the crime. Hlllstrom stag
gered into the doctor's home two hours
after the shooting, wllh a large bullet
wound through hla left lung. lis told ths
dootor he had been shot In a quarrel
over a woman and requested that nothing
be aald regarding hla vlait or wound. The
doctor, not having heard of the murdera,
treated the wound end took Illllatrom to
a aouee, where he had been staying for
several daya Newe of the murder re
called the case to the doctor and hs In
formed the offloers. The doctor found
an automatlo pistol of the same caliber
as sbeUs found In the grocery after the
shooting, in HUlstrom's pocket. Hlllstrom
threw the weapon away after leaving the
doctor's home. Blood found at eeveral
plaora between the atore and tha home of
the doctor and members of the family
where Hlllstrom lived said a companion
had visited him late the night cf the
murders, talked privately with him and
left. This man ass not apprehended and
haa not been heard of since.
The Morrison boy, because of the masks
snd confusion of ths shooting, was not
sble to Identify Hlllstrom, except In gen
eral description of his slse and clothing.
but another witness gave a minute and
particular description of Hlllstrom as one
of the aaaallanta aeen. In bright moon
light near an electric arc lamp with anew
on the ground. Hlllstrom also waa identi
fied as a man who visited ths store the
afternoon of tbe murders and talked with
Prlaoaep Heeovere RaaleHr.
Hlllstrom'a recovery from hla wound
waa rapid and complete. He has always
maintained hla innooence, but has never
told where he was the night of the mur
dera or who shot him. He created a soene
at hla trial by dramatically discharging
his attorneys In open court, later giving
as his reason their failure to "tear
young Morrison to pieces on cross-exami
nation." referring to the boy who wtt
nesaed tha shooting. He refused to go
on ths witness stand himself or to offer
any evidence as to where he was or what
hs did the night of the murders. Hs was
found' guUty by the trial Jury, the Judg
ment was affirmed by the supreme court
and the Board of Pardons, after aa ex
haustive review of the case, declined to
commute hla sentence of death.
He was sentenced to be shot October 1
and was reprieved by Oovemor Spry Sep
tember W at the request of President Wll
son, who acted on a request of ths Bwed
ish minister. The case had Previously
been investigated for the Swedish min
ister by the Bwed Ish vice consul for
I'tah, a well known attorney, who ad
vised that his Investigation developed
no thing that would Justify the Board of
Fardone in commuting ttie sentence.

wound. He also declined to give the
board any reasons why he should receive
clemency and refused to let hla on
counsel or any member of the board In
terrogate him on any subject whatever.
He declared he did net wish a commuta
tion or pardon and Insisted that he have
a new trial, which the board and his own
counsel Informed him the board was
powerless to grant.
Hlllstrom, who saya he has been a
machinist and laborer, claims to be a
Swedish subject, and on that ground the
Interest of the Swedish minister was ob
tained. Hlllatrom waa a member of the
Induatrtal Workers of the World, the
members of which have been active In
demanding his pardon or retrial.
Several local aympathlxera, lnoludlng
a woman Instructor at the state univer
sity, have been active in their eiforta
to obtain a new trial, a pardon or com
mutation for Hlllstrom. One of theae,
who snt a cablegram to Sweden In HUl
strom's Interest, aald he desired him set
at liberty, guilty or Innocent. The more
prominent local advocates of HUlatrom's
cauae were cited before the Board ot
Pardons in September and requeeted fo
present any facta they had in addition
to those offered at tha trial. All admitted
they had no additional evldenoe to offer.
