lfelnio died game. With every fiber
his body quivering the murderer
bis sweetheart, Freda Faracia,
'mounted the gibbet, but by a stren
uous effort of will, met death calm-
Guglielmo epake for ten minutes
previous to taking his position on
the trap."' He declared that he bad
been shown no mercy because be
was an Italian, and blamed the
governor for not, showing any con
sideration to the king 01 Italy or
the Italian consuls of San Francis
co and Portland.
Facing Gaetano, the father of the
dead girl, Guglielmo accused, of be
ing wholly responsible for the crime.
Garacia stood like a graven image,
his face as white as a sheet and its
palor increased by comparison with
a heavy beard of raven hue. .. -
The trap fell at 12:43 o'clock and
Guglielnjo was pronounced dead 12
minutes later. '
Thirty minutes after the trap" fell
Garacia took a car to town and" got
off at Edwards' barber shop, the
nearest one to the penitentiary, in
company with Otto Prag, who ac
companied him here from Portland,
and bad his face shaved smooth,
with the; exception , of mustache
which he always wore.
"I have fulhlled my vow," said
Garacia, 00-whose face was a look
of savage satisfaction. "I . swore
man who murdered : my little girl
went to the gallows. - Thank God,
she is avenged. "Tell the people of
Portland -that Gaetano Garacia
comes back to Portland without a
beard; they i know what that
means." " . "
At 12:05 Guglielmo eat down in
his cell, drank a cup of coffee and
ate a slice of bread and butter and
two or three small pieces of meat.
Then he called superintendent
James and asked him to give his
personal effects in his cell to his
ancle. He banded mm two small
prayer books and requested that
they be given to Gporge Lautb, tbe
Oiegon City murderer, -then the
murderer started for tbe execution
chamber in the south wing of the
buudiDg with Warden Curtis on
one side, and Assistant Warden
Smith on tbe other supporting him
at 12:35. : Guglielmo walked slow
ly but did not hesitate and was able
to mount tbe steps to the upper
floor and. steps to the gibbet . with
little assist aoce, followed by Su
perintendent James, Father Faber
and "the guards, Guglielmo carry
ing a half-smoked cigar in bU right
hand. ' ' . .". ', . ' j, .
Superintendent James raised his
hands for quiet and Guglielmo ad
vanced to the railing on which be
placed both hands for support. He
spoke clearly at times, but again so
indistinctly as to be beard with dif
ficulty, Following is a portion vi
the murderers's final statement.
"Gentlemen, I have a few .words
to say before I die. . I wiil die with
all my heart,, because I know that
I have to pay the penalty for crime
I have committed. It, is a wroog
thing, but 1 tell you I- don t deserve
to be hanged, but I die with all
my heart and I want" you to know
it. God wants me, and I die wil
lingly and go to him. I forgive
every one that has worked against
me, and I ask forgiveness for all
the wrongs that I have done. There
is one thing I want to say. I have
not got a fair deal in this country,
No mercy, no clemency - baa been
shown me, nor anything else. . No
respect has been shown for the
Ibilian'king, my king, nor the
Italian flag, and the Italian ambas
sador at; Washington, D. C, has
been treated with no respect.
"It is the eame with the Italian
conBul here, and the Italian consul
at San Francisco. It is the only
favor they have asked the state of
Oregon since it has existed, and it
was not granted. Ever since I was
arrested I have got the worst of it.
Everybody had it in for me because
I was aa Italian. - They , got all
my money and I don't surely de
sefve to be haDged, Everything I
blame on theeirl's father. j-He is
to blame for it all. She is dead and
I am willing to suffer for her. I
die far her and die with all my
heart.' ";-v "
"I -Vxow Gad looks for me and I
know everybody feels that I don't
deserve to be hanged. They con
demned me to death. I was will
ing to be in jail 11 month;, ' and I
never gave anybody aay trouble,
I always- attended to my business
and nver.gave trouble 'in- my life
But I committed . a crime on tbe
verge if . insanity without any con
tsiderat!on;and the first night I was
' arrestei they had it in for me be-
Frank Gng-causejl.was an Italian, but I forgive
everyone. They put me in a eel
with in, or 20 persons and detec
tives Kud asked me all kinds of ques
tions, decauee I was drunk and did
not kr cw what I was saying. T
"I was out of my head and made
all kinds of statement?; bat did not
know what I was eaying. II asked
for an attorney, but could not gat
one. i A'uother thing,, the law ,has
decreed me to death.- and I will die
bappyr-but I wish to put all blame
on the girl's ' father. He is the
cause at it all.The governor should
have nad mercy because so many
of my Italian friends recommended
it to him! But I forgive every one
who has done any thing against me
and ask pardon and forgiveness for
all wrodga I have done. Good-bye
forever and I wish every one good
luck." Good-bye." r

New York, May 7. A lawyer

San Francisco was fairly well paK

big end of the purse, there was but
little in it for me. I have determ

"The public is fickle. I am well

"Well, he got what hedeserved."
Mrs. Garacia speaks ' English
very well, and as she sat in the

been hanged for killing her oldest
daughter she kept exclaiming,
"Poor child, poor child."
My daughter was too young to

But Mr. Frank seemed to love her

in a western city is, responsible for
the remarkable improvement which
has lately taken place in the ap
pearance of that town, bhe had
been away to college, and during
her vacations had visited in the
beautiful homes of her friends, and
when she returned after graduation
to the paternal roof it struck, her as
being extremely shabby. : bhe had
tbe 'house painted a colonial ; yel
low. She put awnings on the win
dows aud verandas, had the fences
taken down and the lawns properly
cared for. Then she served tea ev
ery afternoon on the veranda, and
her friends thought It ail so nice
that they all went home determin
ed to do likewise. The fences came
down all along the street, and in
other streets the - houses took on
new colors and the lawns bloomed
with velvety greenness. The value
of the property rese, and the muni
cipal government, seeing that there
was financial profit in beauty, went
in for pavements, parks, fountains
and drives. . JNow - there 'is not a
more beautiful place iu tbe west
than in this town.
