he a-iys: j
"It is a matter of regret to me to be ,
unable to acceed to your request to
deliver a non-partisan address on Im
perialism in Cinclnnatti. I would be
pleased if this question could be taken
out of party politics, because If this la
not done, the only choice that will be
left us next year will be between a
patty representing imperialism and
sound money, and another party which
In opposition to Imperialism will com
bine with It the unsound money Issue.
"No one can say ito me that I un
dervalue the danger that may arise
from free coinage, but I hold that Im
perialism is decidedly more dangerous,
for it means the ruin of our free In
stitutions. "I am of the honest conviction (hat
the greatest danger that now threatens!
the republic Is Imperialism. 1 believe
that It Is our highest patriotic duty to
set aside all party Interests and to do
our best to avert this danger."

EXECUTION OF A
CULPRIT WAS A MINISTER
Details of One nl the Mod Fiendish
Crimes in the Annuls of Crimi
ST. LOl'IS, Oct. 27.-A special to
the Post Dispatch from Dallas, Texas,
says: Rev. C. E. Morrison was hanged
at noon today at Vernona, Texas, for
wife murder. He met his death resign
edly. On the scaffold he said to the
select party of 20 witnesses permitted
at the execution.
"I am innocent. Circumstances over
which I had no control have placed
me In tl.ia position. I have taken my
trouble in private to God. I admit I
have acted Indiscreetly, I have done
no worse, however, than Hundreds or
men who stand high In the religious,
social, business and official circles of
our state. I have done nothing to con
fess. I am In the hands of my Maker.
He knows I am Innocent."
The crime for which Rev. G. R. Morri
son, paid the death penalty was the
poisoning- of his wife In October, 1S97.
The facts show that for deliberate
flendlshness they are almost without
parallel In the annals of criminal Jur
isprudence. The motive for the poison
ing was in order to ride himself of a
pretty, amiable, loving wife, in order to
marry a lady poss;s9ed of a large for-j
fine, $100,000 of which was In cash. j
Morrison married his deceased wife
about 17 years ago. At one time they
lived in California, then In Oklahoma
Territory, from which place they moved
to Panhandle, Texas, where the crime;
