Joseph Hillstrom was executed by
shooting here today for the murder
of John O. Morrison, a grocer, and
his son, Arllng, who were killed In
Morrison's store, January 10, 1914.
Hlllstrom's case attracted wide at

A second request for fruther con
sideration, made by the president,
waa declined yesterday by Governor
William Spry, supported by the par

would be an unwarranted Interfer

though he was self-possessed and as
sorted his innocence when he faced his

nervous collapse Just previously when he
tied the door of ' his cell 1 at the state
prison with strips tern from his blankets

Hlllstrom's outburst was unexpected.
He retired calmly last night and remained
apparently In sleep until early this morn
ing. He arose about 4 o'clock and begaq
to shake the cell door, shrieking as if in
a nlgh.tmn.re. The noise reached the out
side guard, who turned .in a general
alarm, bringing all the prison officers to
the scene. The prison physician endeav
ored, with sight success, to quiet him.
It was decided not to interfere with him
until necessary, and he was not disturbed
until the time arrived to take him to the
scene of the esecujicn... When tho guards
arrived for -this purpose HUlatrom fought

"Joe, this is all nonsense" said Corleas.

Hillstrom hesitated a moment and then

"But you can t blame a man for fight

The blanket atiina he hmA t a tn ih
door were cut, he vu blindfolded
and led to the place of execution, sup
ported by two guards. He talked inces
santly in the few momenta that elapsed
between the time of hla arrival and the
firing of death volley. He asked whether
any of his friends were in the firing
scruad and kept saying he was innocent
and would die like a man. His voice was
clear, but low. He was quickly adjusted
to the death chair, and. as the attendaats
drew aside, HUlstrocn straightened him
self In the chair and said "I'll die like
a man, I never did any wrong in my
life. I die fighting, not like a coward.
Well I'm going. Good-bye everybody."
