GLASGOW FLAT MURDER. The Scottish Office announced on Tuesday night that a reprieve had been granted to Oscar Slater, "the man with the twisted nose," who was sentenced to death by Lord Guthrie at Edin- burgh on May 7 for the brutal murder of the aged lady, Miss Gilchrist, in her flat in Glasgow. Upon his removal to the cell after the death sentence had been passed Slater is alleged to have said to some detectives, "Look here, I am not the only guilty man, there are others as bad as me." He subsequently denied making this statement, saying that what he did say was, "After I am dead the guilty, party will be found." In company with the prison doctor, the Governor on Tuesday entered the condemned cell in which Slater has been confined since his removal from Edinburgh, and informed the pri- soner that he had been respited. Slater collapsed on hearing the news.
