Rena Mooney, Nolan and Weinberg were released. Friends of the prisoners kept on fighting. They marshaled- their facts, pointing out that Oxman had been discredited, that MacDonald had admitted lying; the judge who tried the two men announced that he was convinced that they had teen convicted by mistake. So di nine of the ten surviving Jurors in the ifooney case. So did a San Fraricisco city detective who had helped get the evidence afcalns: them. This spring a new attempt lo fre; them was made. Governor Young announced his readiness to review the case. Billings had been in prison before, and under the law- could hot be pardoned unless the supreme court reviewed his Ciso. Its finding was a new disappointment. It pinned its faith on MacDonald's original story, adding Mooney and Billings, if they were Innocent of the bombing, at least .must have had some guilty knowledge of It. Governor Young followed this kad. He remarked that If MacDonald could be found, and would return to San Francisco to repeat his recantation, something might be done. That looked hopeless. MacDonald had not been seen for nine years The San Francisco News, however, offered a $500 reward for his discovery. MacDonald's picture was : broadcast over the country. !
