Mass Meeting in Seattle
Takes Resolution to Com
Seattle. Wallace C. (Bob) Gaines
may or may not be guilty of the
murder of his daughter Sylvia, but
he should not hang, decreed a riotous
mass meeting of 200 persons in the
Seattle Armory. . , ' . , .
A resolution to this effect was
taken by a crowd which - gathered
after the Roosevelt Post of the Vet
erans of Foreign Wars had disband
ed a meeting called by its command
er, Capt. Charles Brown. The meet
ing was unauthorized by the organ
ization, members of the post said.
Members of the James M. Eagleson
Post likewise- refused to assume re
sponsibility for the gathering, which
decided to ask Governor Hartley to
commute the death sentence, over the
violent protest of Clark R. Belknap,
of the American Legion. Belknap
tried repeatedly to present his argu
ment against commuting sentence but
was persistently interrupted by Wil
liam A. Gaines, the slayer's brother,
and by Capt. Brown and others in the
crowd. : "
