St. LoBis, Mo., Sept. 11.-There ia lit tie doubt that James Gray, a life oonviol iu the penitentiary at Chester, 111., is serving a sontonce for a murdor committed by some ono else. This case furnishes a straDge romance of crime. Uray is not bis real name, but bo will furnish no other to tho public, lie is well educatod and bas been four years a book-keeper iu the institutsou. He was-couvioted on hik own voluntiry confession made before the trial, though in Court he stoutly denied the crime. a 9tranoe CONFESSION. One morning in Oetober, 13S3, a man was fouud murdered in a box car at Con-tralia, 111. Ha was never identified. There was no duo, but on the third day after tho murder a yonng man entered the office of a Centralia juBlioe, and giving bis name as James Gray, confessed to the murder. He was, of course, placed under arrest, and the Grand Jury subsequently indioted him. lie was furnished counsel by the appointment of the Court. To the counsel be told his story. A DESIRE TO BE HANGED. He deolared that be had not killed the man, bat he had made the oonfeSBion in order that be might be hanged, not having the heart to hang himself, and haviog a morbid desire to die that way. Tbe Judge refusod to accept a plea of guilty, and as he had no desire to go to tho penitentiary he took baok his oonfession. He was oonvioted and sentenced for life. He beoame a favorite at the institution. Judge William C. Jones, of this oity, who is at the head of the Missouri Bar, became interested in the ease, and has begun a fight to liberate the young man, with every prospeot of success. LIFE IS SWEET NOW. Prison life has been an education to Gray, and be is no longer morbid. By the aid of his attorney ho has addressed a long letter to the people of Illinois, in whioh he reviews his history. He does not blamo anybody for his trouble but himself. He evidently comes from a good family, but ho positively refuses to tell tho secret of their location. Tho reporter has conversed with those who havo mado Gray's case a study, and have no personal or Snaucial interest in his liberation. Thoy are convinced of his innocence, thoy havo learned that there woro many elements of inconsistency in his (irst confession, and are sure of his ultimate release. AN rXCCNSISTEXT STOItY. Not the least thing advocated in his favor is the fact that he was utterly unable to toll at the time of his so-called confession anything of the antecedents of his viotini. The points in his favor aro too numerous to be included in a brief statement of his oase. His letter which tills nearly four oolumns, concludes: 'Now, I ask tho people of Illinois, and particularly tbe people of' Marion oounty, to take my case into consideration, aud, if they see fit to do so, to sign tbe petition to the Governor for my pardon.'' Dr. W. A. atoker, of Centralia, has, kindly offered to circulate tho petition without recompense, and purely as an act of oharity. Canon I*!d
