Williams Says He Expected to
Die a Week Earlier.
SENTENCED AT THE DALLES
Murderer of Alma Xcsbltt Is Appar
ently Unmoved When Date of
"Hanging Is Set for July
THE DA1XES, Or., June 10. (Special.)
Escorted by Sheriff Sexton and his depu
ties, Norman Williams, the convicted
-murderer of his -wife, Alma JCesbltt "Will
iams, -was brought before Circuit Judge
" Bradshaw today and by him sentenced to
Tms hanged in the Jail yard of the Wasco
County Prison July 23.
It had been generally understood that
Williams -would receive his sentence Mon
day next, the first day of court. News
of the change of date, however, brought
a crowd of spectators to the courtroom to
day, all eager to catch a glimpse of the
notorious prisoner and to observe his
bearing when receiving his death sen
tence. "Williams is a very tall roan, and topped
the group of officers and most of the
onlookers by half a head as he was
led through the courtroom to the bar of
Justice. He was apparently unmoved by
the distressing ordeal through which he
was called to pass, and only an occa
sional and characteristic straightening of
his head and shoulders indicated that he
was exercising more than ordinary self
control. This Quiet demeanor remained unbroken
while Judge Bradshaw recalled the ver
dict of the Supreme Court upon the ap
peal of his case from the Lower Court.
When asked by the Judge If he had any
thing to say before the time of execu
tion was set, Williams replied that he
had not- The death sentence was then
pronounced, after which Williams was im
mediately returned to his ceil, where he
remarked to the Jailer that he had ox
pcted the 'day of execution to be set a
week earlier and that the 21t of July
was a week longer than he wanted to
The hour for execution will be set
later by the Sheriff, who will arrange
all details of that ovent.

LEASE IS TIED UP
Washington May Gain by Ri
valry for Public Land.
CASE IN SUPREME COURT
Original Bid In Kitsap County Is
Raised .From $12 to 91200'
on Tract. Containing 120
Acres of Land.
OLYMPIA. Wash... June .(Special.)
The promised test of the law in respect
to giving a lessee and Improver of state
lands a preference right to re-lease was
begun In the Supreme Court today. An
injunction Is prayed for restraining the
State Land Office from leasing to J. M.
Coleman a tract of 120 acres In Kitsap
County without first advertising and of
fering the lease at public auction.
It is contended that the law in giving
to any person a vested right to re-lease
Is unconstitutional, and that In any event
the law requires that the leasing shall be
at public auction, extending to the lessee
and improver the right thereafter only to
re-lease at the highest rate hid.
Under the interpretation of the law by
the State Land OBlce. there Is no pub
lic noticing of the re-lease, but any one
who Is aware of the termination of the
lease may make an offer and the original
lessee and Improver Is given the right to
take the land at the highest offer.
- If the Injunction is Issued, a method
in use for several years will be upset
and t'.ie re-leasing of many thousand
acres of land in this state will be af
Coleman originally offered 10 cents an
acre, or 512 per year for a. rc-lease. The
offer was refused, and the state asked
CO per year. W. H. Pelton offered to
bid 5120 If the lease were put up at pub
lic auction, and Coleman met this bid.
The office agreed to lease to Coleman for
$120. but today W. P. Trimble tendered
JliOO per year rental, an offer of 100 times
Coleman's original bid.
On the ground that Coleman" had al
ready been promised a lease at 5120 per
year, the Trimble offer was refused. The
complaint and application for injunction
was then served.
