According te the ruling of the
supreme court of Oregon in the
case of Pleasant Armstrong for the
murder of Minnie Ensminger, Nor
man Williams will be hanged in
the jailyard of The Dalles. The
crime he is accused of was com
mitted prior to June 17, 1903, and
therefore it devolves upon tbe
officials of Wasco county to exe
cute him. All crimes committed
after June 17, punishable by death
will result in execution at the state
penitentiary. This is provided for
in the new law dealing with execu
tions: The confusion which existed
at the time of the Armstrong case
was tried was settled by the su
preme court. The new law failed
to say anything about crimes
committed prior to its passage.
consequently it was necessary fer
the supreme court to settle it. Thus
it is that Norman Williams, con
victed of murder in the first degree,
will hang id the jailyard at The
Dalles in July, unless he is granted
a new trial or an appeal is taken.
The date of his execution haa been
set, and preparations will be made
before long for his execution.
