1Ee Lethbridge Daily Herald LETHIRIDOK, ALBIRTA. SATURDAY, MARCH I, lttt. NO. 71 PLEADED FOR UBERTY OR DEATH Dr amatic Scene In a Xew York, March g, dramatic appeal-before tho Appelate Division of tho Supreme Court in Brooklyn to- day, Albert T. Patrick who was sen- tenced to death for the murder of M. Rice, in September, 1900, argued for nearly four hours.'for his liberty. The principal points of his contention were that his conviction was the re: suit of a "collossal conspiracy" on the part of the justices at his triaJ and the authoritltes who prosecuted and that Governor Higgins had.no- le- gal right to commute the sentence of the court to We imprisonment, inas- much as he had not consented to such commutation. Decision was reserved by the court and two weeks allowed the relator in which to. file a reply. In the meantime Patrick will be re- turned to state prison. The scene in court while the condemned man plead ed his cause with all the mental ity and fervor of a learned lawyer, was sensational. Patrick declared that life 'imprisonment -was a more severe sentence than death and asked the court to either give him his liber- ty or send him to the electric chair, under the original sentence.
