TO ABOLISH DEATH ! HORACE GREELEY
PENALTT IN STATE! CENTENARY FEB. 3
Question Will Probably (Entire Nation Will Observe
Be Voted Upon I Anniversary Of
In 1912 ! His Birth
SALEM. Jan. 23. The question ol
. whether tbe death penalty bball be
abolished will probably be decided by
j the people at the next general elec
tion Id November, 1'J12.
Many members of the legislature,
perhaps a majority, are In favor of
making the death penally a matter of
i the past, if tbe possibilities of ob-
talning a pardon are made fewer, aud
tney have decided that the only safe
j way of disposing of this phase of the
question is by taking the pardoning
! power from the governor and placing
! it with the supreme court. Lawyers
i have discovered that this involves au
1 amendment to the constitution which
! munt be submitted to tbe people be
! fore tbe above bill can be passed,
In the bill, introduced io the sen-
i ate, tbe privilege of granting pardons
la taken from the governor, instead
tbe supreme court la tbe only resort
of pardon lor tbe person given a life
sentence for murder who baa exhaust
ed all other methods of escape. Tbe
supreme court, under the bill's pro
visions, may then grant a pardon
only upon tbe Introduction of evi
dence unearthed since tbe oonviotion
of tbe prisoner, showing that aba or
be is innocent of tbe crime charged.

Schools in every part of the United i

and favorable responses have been ro I

President Taft has been invited to
speak at Chappaqua. It is expected
that the city of New Vork will have
an impressive gathering. Tbe City
(dub has set aside the luncheon of
February 4th for a press luncheon In
commemoration of the life and ser
vices of Horace Uieeley. President
James Tole of Typographical union
No. ti informs the Greeley memorial
committee that the union is working
upon tbe matter of properly celebrat
ing the centenary of its first presi
dent, Uorace Greeley,
Tbe movement of tbe (Jreelev cen
tenary originated at Chappaqua. It
was decided by the men who are act
uated by tbe highest patriotic motives
that right there (Uhappaqua) would
be the proper place to erect a statue
in memory of lloraoe Greeley. It is
tbe spot that Mr. Greeley loved so
dearly, and his daughter, Mrs.
Gebrlelle Greeley Cleodenlu, still
live on the old place.
Mary had a little lamb,
Its fleece was as white as snow;
It strayed away one summer day
Where lambs should never go.
And Mary sat her quickly down
And tears streamed from her eyes;
She never found the lamb because
She did not advertise.
And Mary had a brother
Who kept a village store;
Hesathimdownand smoked a pipe;
And watched the open door.
And as the people passed along
But did not stop to buy,
John still sat and smoked his pipe,
And blinked his sleepy eye.
And so the sheriff closed him out,
But still he lingered near,
And Mary came along to drop
A sympathetic tear.
"How is it, sister, can you tell,
Why other merchants here,
Sell all their goods so readily
And thrive from year to year?
Remembering her own bad luck,
The maiden then replies:
' These other fellows got there, John,
Because they advertise."
