A PROCLAMATION BY THE GOVERNOR.

WAEREAS, information hath been communicated to me in

due form of law, that Alfred Mahon, on the eighth day of September, A. D. eighteen hundred and seventy-four, at the township of Morris in the county of Morris and state of New Jersey, was murdered by some person or persons unknown; and whereas, it hath come to my knowledge that the commission said crime was attended with cir. cumstances of great atrocity, demanding (in my opinion) that the largest reward authorized by law should be of fered.

Now thererfore, I, Joel Parker, Governor of the State of New Jersey, by virtue of authority vested in me by law, do issue this my proclamation, and hereby offer a reward of six hundred dollars, to be paid out of the treasury of this state, for the apprehension and conviction of each of the persons who committed the aforesaid crime.

tember, A. D. eighteen hundred and seventy-four. By the Governor,
