(By Electric Telegraph.—Copyright.] [Per Press Association.] LONDON, August 15. (Received August 20, 1889, at 10 a.m.) Home-Secretary Matthews will consider the petitions in favor of Mrs Maybrick before tho sentence is carried out. These petitions have been signed by a quarter of a million people. Tho * Lancet ’ considers that the verdict was justified by the evidence. As usual in these cases, Mrs Maybrick has received plenty of offers of marriage, at least seven being known of; but besides these one infatuated admirer has carried his folly so far as to offer himself as a substitute for her on the scaffold. Mr Matthews refused to receive a deputation from tho House of Commons on the Maybrick case. An excited meeting has been held in London in favor of a reprieve. Judge Stephen has had a conference with the Home Secretary. He approves of the verdict. The English Press Association states that Mrs Maybrick’s sentence has been commuted to penal servitude for life, but the announcement is regarded as premature, as Mr Matthews is still considering the case. August IS. Dr Baird, in a letter to the ‘ Medical Journal,’ opposes tiie verdict in tho Maybrick case.
