What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Chicago, Dec. 17.-A special to the Post from Washington says: \A cable message of the greatest im- portance to the commercial interests of the United States has gone from th state department at Washington to Madrid. It is tantamount to an infor- mal notice to the nations of the earth that if the trade discriminations against United States de not cease that meas- ures will be adopted by the president for the protection of American com- merce under athe authority of the act of congress of August 13, 1890, empow- ering him to stop the importation of goods from countries that persist in such discriminations. One of the chief offenders in this respect is Spain. and for that resaon Madrid is selected as the point of attack, though the action would be rightfully construed as indi- cating a policy applicable to Germany, Denmark, France and many other tin, lions that have put an embargo on American products.

PERRY TO HANG Idaho Supreme Court sposes of the Appeal KILLED HIM FOR HIS MONEY HIm ttlorney Is Said Irs Have A Cr• pled is Poriton of timed Money t,,r 11I• FOR. Sao..., Idaho, Dee. 17. The supreme court today affirmed the verdict in the ease of Charles Perry, for the inurdet• of Patrick McNamara, at Lava, Ban- nock county. Perry was an employe of McNamara and killed Illtu for less than $100 known to have teem in the house. The murder was a 'nest brutal one, MeNamara'a brains being beaten out by an axe. Perry was tried at Pocatello. He was found guilty of tnurder In the tirst degree and sentenced to be hanged on September 28th. An appeal was taken. Perry's attorney at the trial was J. Ed Smith of Idaho Falls. The evi- dence was entirely circumstantial. It was proven in the trial that the offi- cers had , caught Smith digging up money near the scene of the murder. Blood -marked bills spent by Smith dur- ing the trial were readily traced to Perry. When this evidence was pro- duced, it Was claimed by Perry that Smith had betrayed him mid the court appointed H. V. A. Ferguson of Poca- tello to continue the defense. The appeal htnged largely upon testi- mony relative to Smith, which Perry's attorney claimed wee not admissable and without which conviction could not be had. The court hold there was no evidence of a conspiracy for the be- trayal of Perry through his attorney. Chief Justice Huston deliVered a dis- senting opinion in which he held that the,,nrisoner had not had a fair trial, as his conviction hinged on revelations made by his own attorney. Huston scored Smith unmercifully, declaring his crime was without a parallel in the history of the bar, \I do not know what name to apply to it,\ he said, \It has no name, for the reagon that there has been before no occasion to find a name for such a crime.\ The date of Perry's execution will be fixed by the district judge who eet,t,•nced him. OTii 1.112 DEC1SIoNS Among . other cases decided were the following: In the ease of (1. W. Cummings vs. B. F. Conn, auditor of Dalai, county, it was decided that in the redemption of property Sold f,•I taxes the :4) per (milt penalty applies to the full amount of taxes and interest. In the case of William O'Creer et al. s the Ceche Valley Canal Company et al., appellants, the judgment of the lOw- er court was affirmed. The plaintlffe filed a lien for 48,000 on a portion of the ,'anal property of the defendant, located In Bingham county. The defendant claimed the lien was invalid for the reason that it embraced only a portion and not the whole of the cane] eyatem. The court holds that the W,lti valid.

The appeo.. ot attacked the va- lidity of the vagrittiry ordinance of Poc- atello on the graund that it defined an offense mad, punighable by the general Statutes. This raised the question whether cily. erdinances covered by the penal code are not Invalid. The su- preme court, in affirming the judgment of the lower court, holds that municipal corporations may pass ordinances for the prosecution and punishment of the same acts as are punishable under the penal code when authorized so to do by the law under which such towns and villages are organized. In the case of the Colorado Iron Works vs. William Rickenburg the judgment of the lower court was re- versed Itickenburg demurred to the complaint on the ground that the plain- tiffs being material- men were 0mb-eon- tractern and that they should have C'od their lien within the 30 day.

Minneapolis, Dec. 17. --An afternoon paper says. \The latest develapitient the (Jung murder case is in the ,th,e,,r: ery of evidence that leads the authori- ties to the belief that Harry Hayward is western agent of a green goods com- bination whose headquarters are at New York, with the principal branch at Chicago. The first clue to this was giv- en by one of the members of the gang, whose conscience was quickened by the murder of Miss Ging. The money which was obtained by Miss Ging from Hay- ward will he ahOW11 to be a portion of the green goods which passed into her possession from Hayward, who afterwardsfound it necessary to put his victim out of the way to prevent ex- posure. Harry T. Hayward was brought over from St. Paul this afternoon to plead to an indictment charging him with the murder of Catherine Ging, but he asked continuance and he was granted •aatti--Sisturday morning meat to snake his plea.

Cohnoll Bluffs, la., Dec. 17. -Startling developments have been made In the Huntington affair which resulted in Huntington's victims employing an at- torney to look out for their interests, during the inquest. A new feature was a suggestion given color by a friend of the dead bank clerk that he did not com- mit suicide, but on the contrary was shot by some one In the room at the time Huntington began to shoot. This theory was advanced when it was learn- ed that the bullet In Huntington's brain was much smaller than the ones fired Into the two bond company ex- aminers and that the wound was not powder burned, as it was thought would be the case if the revolver had been held in hie own hands. There was no other evidence to bear out the theory. Hayden and Cromwell rested easily all day and are much improved JOHN BURNS AT OMAHA.
