MONTGOMERY'S LATEST TALE
Denies Having Murdered His
Father and Mother.
He Cheerfully Await the Day of
Execution Which Will Take
Plaoe January Slat.
Lloyd Montgomery, who is now In the
Albany, Or., jail awaiting execution for the
murder of his parents and Daniel Mo
Keroher, which will occur on January Slat,
waa visited by an Oregonlan reporter last
Saturday and told anew story of the crime,
a part of which Is glvsn below t
"I am going to bang on January 81," he
Said, "and there I nothing I can say to
you that will make me any friends or set
aside the death sentence. But I would like
very much to have the people know that
am not such a bad boy as I have been made
out by the lawyer and newspapers. I did
not kill my lather or mother) but I did kill
McKcroher. He shot my father and
mother, and would have killed me, had
not had a fight with him and shot blm be
fore he csuid do It.
"Of course," continued the boy, after a
moment's thought, "no one believe my
story now, for, I am told, I admitted killing
all of them, when my bead waa wrong.
Now I feel ail right, and my head is clear,
and I can say honestly that I only killed
M cKercher. But I am ready to die, and
the aoooer It Is over the better. I will have
mors peace in the next world than in this,
the way I'm situated. 'Everybody thinks I
killed my parents, and, even if I were free,
I would suffer more than death by knowing
that everybody thought I .ought to hang,
I don't see any way to establish my inno
cence, and have given up thinking about
It. Everything is against me, and I want
to die. I don't want to go to tbe peniten
tiary. What' th use?"
"You thought you were to hang Decern.
bar 81, didn't you?" asked the reporter.
"Yea; I made a mistake about the date,
You see, I took so little Interest In the exe
cution that I only noticed the date, '81st.
I supposed, of course, they wonld bang m
this month. Io fact, wben I left the court-
room after tbe judge sentenced me, al
though be didn't set the date at the time, I
supposed I was to be banged right away off
tbe earns day. I waa surprised wben
told that I bad some tin to prepare for
death, and, when informed that I waa to
die on tbe 81st of January, I thought they
meant December, and was spending my
time a comfortably as possible until next
Tuesday. But I am to see tbe beginning of
th next year, anyway, and I guess It 1
"What do you think will become of you
wben you dief" waa asked.
"I don't really know wbat you mean,
replied th condemned youth, with a puz
zled expression ou his face.
"Do you believe In future punishment!
was a more terse question, which the pris
oner readily understood.
Oh," he replied, carefully choslng his
words, "the Hiblessys that there is punish-
ment In store In the next world for those
who ooruiult crime iu this."
"Don't you have some fear about HT"
"No; why ahould IT I am innocent of
any serioua crime. I never murdered any
one, and I killed McKerchcr because he
killed my parents. I won't sudor for caus
ing his death. I don't know anything
about the next world, but I don't fear it in
th least If I ' bad killed my parents
though, I ahould."
Montgomery discussed tbe hereafter with
evident Interest, and If he fear to meet his
Ood he does not show it. He showed con-
aidcrabl intelligence, and for a yontb
whom no one believes Innocent of thecrime
for which be Is convicted, shows wonderful
nerve la talking about it.

Norman Merrill returned from a visit
to San Francisco laat Monday. He
was gone something over two weeks
and in going took passage by steamer
for an ocean voyage, being one out of
a very few of ZW passengers that did
report for meals wbila en route. He
took occasion while cruising about
tbe city to visit tbe fortifications for
coast defense, and was undoubtedly
impressed by tbe sight of tno big dyn
amite guns he found there ready for
action. lie feels that San Francisco
is pretty safe from foreign invasion by
water, and returna with the belief that
our country is getting well prepared
to take care of itself.
The office of city marshal is not
witbout its disappointments, as was
illustrated in the last pig capture by
that official, assisted by one ol our
good citizens. Two wandering and
careless pies were violating a city or
dinance last week, and in consequence
were driven into the pound to be cared
for until redeemed by their owner or
until sold for expenses of impounding
and feed during ten days. They
proved to be very peculiar pies. They
seemed satisfied with their quarters as
long as they got enough to eat, but
they were fooling the marshal and de
vising plans for escape, and one morn
ing when the marshal went to care for
them tbey were not there. One twelve
inch board, eight feet high, that had
made part of the fence, was not there
either, but an open space was left
where it had been. The marshal can
not settle in his mind which pig
knocked the board off, and as the pigs
oanuot be found, it is not likely that
he will find out soon. The desired in
formation will be thankfully received
by tbe marshal or recorder.
Election Contest. The election
contest case of W. T. Muir against W.
T. Hume, for the office of district at-
tosney in Portland, will be commenced
Thursday, before Judge McBride, who
will bold court in Judge McGinn s de
partment, says the Oregonian of
Wednesday. As the ballots are all to
be recounted, the trial will probably
consume about one week. There are
75 election precincts in the county,
and there were five election officers in
each of these. If all are examined as
witnesses at any length, tbe case can
not be tried in a week. It is not
probable, however, that it will be ne
cessary to examine more than one of
each election board, as to the custody
of the ballots and their delivery to the

It was but a few minutes until people,
upon second thought, remembered
that the new year was dawning, and a
later thought was that there waa great
rejoicing that the year 1895, with all
its attendant trials and tribulations
was a thing of the past. The noise,
without question, was sufficient to
drive the evil spirit wbich baa seemed
to hover over the country during tbe
recent past into obscurity, and we
