BURIED IN PRISON
John Gales Spends Twenty
Three Years Awaiting
Summons to Gallows.
EXPECTED IT EVERY DAY
liberty Clajmcd for Illinois Mur
derer Whom Lavr Sentenced,
Then Overlooked Sisters
CHICAGO, ffuiy 2L For twenty
three years John Gales. a mur
derer from Cook County, has been
practically burled in the State Peniten
tiary in Jollet. wondering each day if
the next -was to be tho day of his ex
ecution. All these years he -was afraid
to ask about the Jay of his doom lest
he should betray to the executers of the
law their failure to carry out a mandate
of the court Ions ago forgotten. And
thereon hangs one of the most remark
able tales in the history of Illinois courts
or penal institutions.
Loyal sisters of Gales Ttnew that he
had been sentenced to hang. They won
dered how It cam a ho was transferred
from the Cook County Jail to the peni
tentiary just beforo the execution was
scheduled to take place. Like the pris
oner himself, they were afraid to tell
their story, even to their closest friends,
lest it should come to the cars of the
authorities and cost the imprisoned
brother his life on the scaffold.
Sisters Break Lone Silence.
For twenty-three years they observed
silence and could stand the strain no
longer. Kate Gales, one of tho sisters,
told tho strange story to members of the
Luxemburg Independent Club. They car
ried the matter to an attorney, who de
clared that the law had forfeited its right
to hangGales because the execution was
not carried out to the letter of the court's
order. On behalf of the sister, Matthew
J. Haas, an attorney, has begun proceed
ings looking to the release of Gales on
a writ of habeas corpus.
How Gales came to be incarcerated in
the penitentiary is a mystery that can
not be explained by the court records.
There is no record of a commutation of
sentence or a reprieve by the Governor
In the executive offices at Springfield.
Not a morsel of evidence can be Jug up '
in the musty documents of the Sheriffs
office to show why Gales was not hanged
In accordance with the order of the court.
The prisoner himself has not the slight
est idea why he was whisked away from
the Cook County Jail and transferred to
the penitentiary. Legally the man's iden
tity seems to have been entirely lost.
Is Ho Legally Dead?
There then arises the question. Is Gales
legally dead? Has the law lost its power
to deal with him for a cold-blooded mur
der, on the charge of which he was le
gally tried and found guilty by a jury
properly constituted and qualified? It
is the contention of the attorney fighting
for Gales' liberty 'that the prisoner has
been held in bondage in the Jollet prison
since the day set for his execution and
without any warrant of law. If the man
should choose to walk out of the prison
gates, he declares, the warden and the
guards could not legally restrain him.
"Warden Murphy knows of no modification
of the sentence that permits the holding
of the man at hard labor. Admittedly
there is no mittimus of commitment. There
Is in existence only a death warrant, yel
low, of age, to show that Gales was con
demned for the killing of a fellow-man.
If it be determined that the man is le
gally dead, the law can take no notice
of him one way or the other.
Warrant Found, hut Xot executed.
The order for the hanging on March 24,
38S2. was issued by Judge William H.
Barnum in the presence of tho then
State's Attorney Luther L&ftln Mills. It
directed that Sheriff O. Mann take charge
of the prisoner, remove him from the
court to the County Jail and there hang
him by the neck on the date mentioned.
In the absence of uny stay of execution,
the warrant stands today as the final
order In the case.
Judge Kersten, from whom the writ of
habeas corpus has been asked, is in doubt
whether he should grant a hearing tor
release for a man doomed to the scaffold,
and he has referred the case to the State's
Attorney for investigation of the records.
The State's Attorney's assistants have
been unable to clear up tho mystery. It
is not believed the man could have been
token to the penitentiary deliberately by
collusion, hence the frantic search and
hope for further papers bearing on the
Gales was convicted of killing John Wil
liam Hessell, a farmer, by whom he was
employed. In the heat of passion he
threw an ax at Hessell, hit him in the
head and death was instantaneous.

The Bones of Jones vs.
Early Saturday Closing
Few people deny tbe fact that the "bones soon to axriva, and obtained at aa expenditure of mttch time
and a tidy sum of aaoney. in this coHatry from France, are these of the famons American Admiral, John
Paul Jones. Most folk are willing and glad to concede that they are. It makes little difference to Jones
or, for that part, to anyone else whether they he er net. 3nt a suspicion is "being aroused that they
are not that the American people are being faked; and that suspicion is grounded on the persistency with
which certain interested folk are thrusting "proof a" (7) upon the pmblic of their anthenticity. Now,
few troths require proof. This claaer of "proofs" that is heing hnrlsd "broadside upon the American
pBblic all uncalled for reminds ms of soae stores that sit back in a dark corner of a preTions century
and preach of the "necessity" of keeping open evenings, in defiance of the laws' of health, modern store
keeping and 20th century business ethics; and the pleadings of HUMANITY for her poor white slaves
from whom the drops of sweat that ooze from tired, overworked bodies and limbs that are fagged, are
coined dollars by merciless taskmasters who'had a place in history before the famous proclamation of
LINCOLN. And hired ad. writers throw a sop to the pnblic, prating of the "necessity" of nightwork, of
tho "accommodation" they afford the public, but finally fall back into the gutter of greed, and admit -'tis-the
spirit of GAIN after all that actuates the 14-honr day. If these antediluvian habits be actually so
"necessary," why this hypocritical prating? "Paul Jones' Benes"7
