Imprisonment Leases Judge
No Alternative.
Hasted Alvln Walters, 24-year-old
cldier from Camp Lewis, must hang
for the murder of Jerome Palmer,
Portland police patrolman, who was
shot and killed during a gun fight
on the night of November 17. This
was the decision of a circuit court
jury which returned a verdict at 10:30
o'clock yesterday morning finding
the young soldier guilty of Arst-de-
gree murder.
Under the new capital famish
ment law, Walters must hang for
the murder. Because of the absence
of any recommendation for life im
prisonment. Judge Tucker, before
whom the case was tried, has no al
ternative other than to sentence the
soldier-murderer to pay the extreme
penalty.
Judge Tucker announced that the
death sentence would be imposed at
2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. He al
lowed the defense ten days in which
to prepare an appeal for a new trial.
Jury Debate Lons.
The case was given to the jury at
Sr25 o'clock Wednesday afternoon.
but it was not until 9:30 o'clock yes
terday morning that the jurors made
any report to the court. At that
time they filed before Judge Tucker
and requested further Instructions
relative to the length of premedita
tion required in first-degree murder.
After Judge Tucker had given further
i Instructions on this point the jurors
returned t othe jury room and an
hour later returned with their ver
dict.
During the brief court formalities
before the verdict was read Wal
ters became extremely nervous and
crouched in his seat as though terri
fied. But when the verdict which will
send him to the gallows was read
In a low tone by the clerk, the young
slayer showed no outward sign of
emotion. It was the first time since
th case first started that he ap
peared to be entirely composed. -Degree
of Guilt Argued.
Unofficially, it was said that the
jury from the outset was unanimous
as to the guilt of Walters, but was
disagreed as to whether it should be
first or second-degree murder. Sev
eral of the jurors were not certain
that the murder of the policeman had
been planned and executed with pre
meditation and deliberation.
On the night of November 17 Wal
ters, in company with John Tillman,
17-year-old soldier compani. -i, held
up and robbed four pedestrians on the
streets of Portland. When accosted
by a police posse of which Jerome
Palmer, patrolman, was a member.
Walters shot the officer through the
heart in attempting to make an es
cape. He was captured a few min
utes later in the railroad yards near
the union station with a bullet wound
in Mb shoulder which had been in
flicted by Patrolman Thorpe, Pai
nter's companion on the manhunt.
PrUon Record Vnearthed.
From records received by District
Attorney Evans from the federal pen
itentiary at Leavenworth, Kan., it
has been learned that Walters has
served three terms in an Oklahoma I
prison for larceny, grand larceny and
turglary. These facts of his past
criminal record were received by the
prosecuting attorney too late to be
used during the trial of the case.
As Walter A. Husted he f rat served
five years in the prison at Granite,
Okla., for the stealing of domestic
animals. This was in 1916. He was
paroled, but later was sentenced to
IS months in the same institution for
grand larceny. Again he was sen
tenced to one year for burglary, the j
records showing he was sent up from
El Reno, Okla.
He is said to have been in prison
during the war, and to have entered
the army after hostilities overseas
had been terminated with the ar
mistice.
TRUNK THIEF SENTENCED
Maurice Goldberg to Serve Year
for Larceny in Hotel.
Maurice Goldberg, 27 years old. was
sentenced to one year In the county
jail by Municipal Judge Rossman yes
terday when convicted on, a larceny
charge involving the theft of a trunk
from the Seward hotel.
According to the testimony Gold
berg, rooming at the Cornelius hotel,
attempted to bribe a bellboy to con
vey a trunk from the basement stor
age room to his own apartment, claim
ing ownership. Failing In this he
went to the Seward hotel, entered the
basement anil selected another trunk,
ordering that it be conveyed to his
room at the Cornelius.
The arrest was made by Inspectors
S wen nes and - Schulpius, after the
trunk had been transferred to Gold
berg's room. He resisted the officers
and in a struggle with Inspector
Schulpius was floord by the officer's
fist.
Austria has a law requiring every
employer to retain as many workmen
on his books as he had before the
war.
Merry Christmas!
