Wife Sees Crammer.
Grammer was brought from his
death cell to the court room by
Warden W. T. Fenton in the war
den's automobile. He was not hand
cuffed or shackled.
His wife heard that he had come
to the court house, and, she hurried
there to see him. She met him just
as he was coming down the steps
from the court house. She fell,
weeping, into his arms.
'.'Guess we'll have to go now, Vin
cent," said Warden Fenton after a
while. "You can see him tomorrow,"
he told Mrs. Grammer.
"Elizabeth May," said Grammer
through the bars of his death cell
in the state penitentiary this morn

I want you to know that I have
loved you, and if. after I, am gone,
you meet a good man whom you
can love, it is my wish that you
marry him, and that you be as faith
ful to him as you have been to me."

to Peter Holmberg from Augusta
Holmberg, October 24, 1919, al
though Peter Holmborg is dead arid

The case is an unique one in di
vorce annals in this state. A fight
is on in county court over the $4,000

terday evidence was taken in an at
tempt by Mrs. Holmberg to prove
that her deceased husband was not
competent to make the will which he

after his divorce was granted. In
this will he gave $600 to the Swed
ish Methodist church of Omaha and
other amounts to various relatives
in other parts of the coantry. ,

1914 when Mr. Holmberg was 72
years old, and Mrs. Holmberg was
55 years old. Mr. Holmberg alleged
in his divorce petition that his wife
made fuh of him. refused to go to
church with him and threatened to
send him to the poor house.
The day after the aged man was
found dead in his room, his divorced
wife filed a oetition to be appointed
administrator of his estate and
named herself as the sole heir, con
tending that the statutory six
months had not elapsed since her
former husband was granted a di
It was uoon this cround that Judge
Wakeley set aside the decree and
made Mrs. Augusta Holmberg the
widow of Peter Holmberg. '
'At the hearing m county court yes
terday various witnesses testified to
actions of Peter Holmberg during
his latter years and said they did not
consider that lie was competent on
October 25, 1919, to make a will.
He used to crawl around on the
floor and said he was hunting God,"
testified Mrs. Holmberg.
Others testified to actions on the
part of Mr. Holmbejg, which they
said indicated that he was not nor

clared several days ago that, if un
able to sectre ratification without
reservations,' he was prepared to
support a resolution of partial rati
fication, excluding the league of na
tions covenant and leaving it for
settlement in the fall elections.
Hitchcock Oppose: Course.
Senator Hitchcock has opposed
such a course. Another factor is the
authorship of Senator Underwood
of the pending motion for appoint
ment of a senate committee on con
ciliation. Supporters of Senator Hitchcock
have been urging his election as an
endorsement of his ex-officio min
ority leadership during the illness
and since the death of Senator Mar
tin. They also have emphasized that
his defeat might be construed as re
oudiation of the administration pol
icy as regards the treaty and mighit
have a harmful effect on future ac
Treaty Temporary Issue.
In behalf of Senator Underwood,
it has been denied that his election
would or could be regarded as a
repudiation of the treaty manage
ment, either of Mr. Hitchcock or of
the administration, The Alabama
senator's friends have insisted that
the treaty is a temporary issue
which should not be a factor in elec
tion of a permanent leader, and
have emphasized that Mr. Hitch
cock, as ranking democrat on. the
foreign relations committee, would
continue in charge of the treaty and
also of all other questions of for
eign relations -coming before the
senate even should Mr. Underwood
be chosen leader.
Another argument has hinged on
geographical considerations, Mr.
Hitchcock being from the middle-
west and Mr. Underwood from the
