Salt Lake Oily, Utah, Nov. 19 Governor Spry of Utah tonight anuouuced his it tentions to'olear the State of the lawless element that new infests the State and see to it that nfUmmatory street speaking is stopped." The Governor's statement came as the aftermath to the execution of Joseph Hillitrom, a member of the I W. W. and .a native of Sweden, for the murder of J. G. Morrison and Morrison'? son on Jauoary 1, 1914 Hillstrjoa was executed by a firing squad at 7:42 a. as. today. When the officers went to get Hillstrom they found he had tied the door of his cell with stripes lorn from his blankets. He fought 1 the guards fiercely with the han die of a brom he bad suatohed from an attnndtut iu the oorr dor, butwhen he saw (ha sheriff he be earn calm, saying, "You cat blame a man for fighting for bis life.'1 Acoompanied by tbe offi cers he walked to the death chair. After he .was seated they aiked him if ha , had anything to Bay. fie said: i:: "Gentlemen. I die with a conscience. I uever.did any thing wrong in my life. I die fighting, not like a coward. Well, I'm ging goodbye." When the officer started to give ths oammand to fire Hillstrjm yelled MFire." the squad fired and the ballets pierced his heart. He was dead in one minute and 10 seconds.

Telegrams were reeeived this morning asserting that William D. Busky of Seattle bad mad an affidavit that he was with HilL- sttom the night J G. Morrison was murdared and that Hillstrom was innooent. The sheriff was requested to postpone tbe exe cution until this statement had been investigated. Warden Ar thur Pratt of the prison then ask d Hillstrom if he knew Busky And Hillstrom answered that hb did not. The sheriff wse then directed to proceed with tbe exe cution. ..Police later said an investigation-'-proved Busky's affi davit untrue. President Wilson twice appeal ed for further respite for Hills trom. The president's second re quest made yesterday, was "denied by Scvarnor Spry as not based on any facts. The Swedish Minister also had interested himself in Hiilstrom's behalf and it was at his request that the President made his fiist request for a respite. The Ameri can federation of. Labor in session at San Francises recently passed a resolution, asking Governor Spry to use his efforts to secure a new trial for Hillstrom. In his statement tonight Gover nor Spry said : "Every lawbreaker, every man who defies law and older, every man who is opposed to law and order, oall themselves what they will, will be driven our of the State. I am going to see that the work is started at once. If the city offioers and others whoie duty it is do not do so, I will do it myself. I am going to see that inflammatory street speaking is stopped and at once, let them call it 'free speech or any other name they wish." The governor said the militia would be used . ill neoessary to clear the State of-the men who nave been "writing threatening letters and making incendiary speeches."

Johns, Blida, Ohio, relates her experience as follows: "My little boy is subjeot to croup. During tne past winter I kept a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in the house, and when he began having that croup cough I would give him one or two doses of it audit would break the attack. I like it better for children than any other oongh medicine beoauie children take it willingly, and it is sate and reliable." Obtainable everywhere. Bury Them Tbrei According to the Savannah Morning News, Ootober 20, 1915, 1.1 i i i . bura unman sxeietons were un earthed by workmen who were ex cavating for some sewer work at the home of tbe 4 Little Sisters of the Poor" where repairs were being made. The skeletons were buried one above another with eighteen inches of lime between The skeletons fell apart when un covered. Polio 9 were notified and the bones were raburied and upon investigation it was determined,' so the, report says, that the spot had once been used as a burying ground, -and "the: skeletons had probably been there for half century." Tint will do to tell. The fact that the bones were found at the heme of the "Little Sisters of the Poor" and that they were buried in lime one above auother leads quickly to the inference that thete may be much troth in the stories of secret burials in lime in Romish institutions.

Field Marshal Lord Kitchener has left Athens for oth er fields of diplomatic or military action in the Near Bast. . ms m ineiusure policy or ureece is still undefined (ffioislly but die pa tohes from the Gieek Capital quote the Government organ Em- bros as affirming that Lord Kitoh .. v ener receivea formal assurance from King Constantino and his Ministers that Greeoe in no case would take steps hostile to the En tente Powers and that a solution of the differences would be found. A commeroial blockade of Greeoe has been deolared by the Entente Powers, acoording to a newt agenoy dispatch which quotes a note issued. by. thftBrit- ifh "Legation iu Athens saying that the step was taken beoause oi the attitude of the Hellenio Gov ernment "in regard to certaiL questions tbuohing closely the se curity and liberty of action to which the Allied troops have the right under the conditions of their disembarkment on Greek terri tory." ' It is added that while it is not the intention of the Allied Powers to con at ram Greeoe to abandon her neutrality, the Allied Govern ments "have been somewhat dis turbed by certain allusions to eventual measures, whioh if taken by the Hellenio Government would appear to them to be contradic tory to assuranoer they have re ceived ." - - When doubts on the subject are dispelled, the note says,, the Al lied Powers will remove the ob stacles. - .

At a meeting in Athens they deoided to urge pon-partioi-pation by their party in the com iug general election on the ground that in the' event of another vic tory ac the polls they would not be able to put the policy of Veni selos into effect. Meanwhile the Teukonia Allies continue their absorption of Ser bian territory, The only devia tion from the oustomary daily re port of Austro -German and Bui- gation at Rome whioh annonnoes an important Serbian victory at Liskovats m the Nish district af ter a battle lasting several days. According to the Legation the Bulgarian losses were enormous. The operations in southern Ser bia are still somewhat beclouded. On the French fiont in the ex treme southeast quiet prevails. Of the sitaation around Monastir, however, nothing official has oome through but unofficial- advices say that the British have arrived there and are being reinforoed. A Buoharest dispatch is authority for the statement that the first contingent of German troops has arrived at Constantinople. Gorizia, the key to Triest, is still under heavy bombardment oy the Italian guns and Rome olaims further suooesses here and also on the Carso plateau and in the Zagora seotor. Vienna admits that at Oslavia the Italians succeeded in penetra ting the Austrian lines, but de clares that most of the position was reoaptured and that extreme ly violent attaoks against Podgora also were repulsed. Along the western front in Franoe and Belgium and on the eastern line in Russia there have been mining and artillery opera tions wbion nave resulted in no important changes of positions.

The'Greei Cabinet met' to. con sider the situation and a few hours should , show what Greece's future attitude will be.
