no SEEKINO FABDON. N OTICE Is hereby given that onJuly Mlh, I will make application to the Governor, at Topoka, for the jiardon of Hugh Guillilaiid and Isaac .GullIUsud, convlcti-d May I '.i, IsM. of luurdtsr in the Urst degree, and ui -nl^'nreil to be hanged. POLLV GCILLILA^TO. Uttaiva, June (i, 1*0. The above notice appeared last week In th'e Fredonia Citizen, but as it is probably of more interest to the citizens of Aljen than to those of Wilson coun­ tv, W9 give it the benefit of our circulation. circulation. : It is hardly necessary to remind our readers, of the facts called up by this potice. The Guillilands (father and son) were tried at the May term of courtta 18S4, at Fredonia, whither the case had l>een taken on change of-venue, and found guilty of murdering Robert MicFairland and James llarcleroOc, of this county. They were clearly proven guilty of cold blooded, premeditated murder, and were justly sentenced to death. Allen county considdrs it bad enough that under our laws this sentence* sentence* cannot be executed, •. but she would consider it an unspeakable outrage outrage to have the ends of jQstice set aside the pardon of these men. Fortunately Fortunately one member of the State Board of Pardons, to whom this matter will be referred, is fully acquainted with all the facts iu tlie, ^nd there is littlp danger of the unrighteous petition petition being granted.
