Howard is Affirmed by Kentucky Court of Appeals HOWARDS STATEMENT Frankfort Ky April 22The Court of Appeals today affirmed the life sentence of Jim Howard for the Goebel murder Judges Burnam and ORear dissenting The principal point discussed by Judge Settle In the majority oplnlon was as to the legality ofexcusing J C Alexander from the jury and the privy examination of Alexander alter he had been accepted as a juror the privy examination taking place without the presence of the defendant Howard but with his consent The majority opinion holds that the examination and excusing of Alexander were both legal Judge ORear in a short opinion dissents from this view and contends that under the bill of rights anything done on the trial without the defendant being present is ill gal even if the defendant does consent to its being done The following is part of Howard statement when informed of the courts decision- You know that I have already suffered imprisonment for four years yet I am not broken down in spirit or discouraged in the matter because the consciousness of my Innocenc has always made me confident that it would not be long before the trut would be fully shown and when tha- Is done the public will realize how unjustly I have been made to suffer If I am guilty of this offense I ought to be punished but if I am not then the punishment that I have ale ready received has worked a great in justice and hardship not only upon me but upon my wife and little one that are dependent solely upon my ef forts for support However I do not want to seem to complain because I believe that in the end justice will be done and that some means will somehow or other be provided to carry my case to the Supreme Court of the United States- I am not afraid to answer to the law for this charge at any and al times and I think I demonstrates that fact because when I was absolutely free and knew that the charge was made against me and warrants out and also knowing that if I saw proper to I could have avoided arrest yet I preferred at that time to come down voluntarily to Frankfort and give myself upto become prisoner in the jail to await my hearing and today knowing all the facts as I ilo if I were released I would act as I did then rather than to become a fugitive from justice because I know that I am innocent and I will not run under such circumstances no mat ter what the final

Ar mory The meeting was entirely an affair of Mr Bryans He paid all expenses He was particular to have it understood that his address was not in favor of or against any particu lar aspirant for the Democratic nom ination for the Presidency His sub ject was the New York Platform and he repeated several times during the course of his address that he was discussing measures only and menMr was his own presiding officer and introduced himself to his hearers He characterized the plat form adopted at the recent State convention in New York as ambiguous uncertain evasive and dishonest declaring that it would disgrace the Democrats of the nation to adopt such a platform and it ought to defeat as an aspirate for a Democratic nomination any man who would be wi11in11 to have It go forth as a c his views on public questions The New York platform is a dis honest platform fit only for a dishon est party No one but an artlu dodger would stand upon it The submission of such a platform to the voters of a State is an Insult to their intelligence for it is Intended to deceive them and a deliberate attemp to deceiveespecially so clumsy an attempt as this platform IsIs a re flection upon the

concentration Never probably tins one country on the verge ol war been more thoroughly informed ns to the circum stances and purposes of its potent a enemy than is Japan in regard to Russia Her intelligence department is superb and in this case it is working under a peculiar advantage dut tn the similarity between the racial chnracteiistlcs of her ptople and tht people among whom the Russian Are quartered The tllicaey of this spying system has hen proved When the war be tween China and Japan which came on In 1894 was imminent it was worked successfully against the Chi nese theme vs who of course art very much more capable than the Russians ot detecting a Japanese wolf in Chinese sheeps clothing- At that times there was a Japanese physician practicing his profession In Shanghai who as has since beer disclosed vi s the head of Japans secret service in the Flowery Kingdom- To him came duly reports by un HerKiotmd railroad grapevine tele graph and all sorts of ways that were as dark and tricks that were ns vain as the heathen Chinese themselves He haul under his direction an organization that extended to every source of military and political infor mation Merchants professional men laborers household servant and laps made to look like Chinamen were his agents That was a good school for Japan esesplis They learned their lesra well and now they are bettered by the irslruction The matter of dis guise prtsents no difficulties Even the false queue that it requires does not jeopardise its success for fast queues are as common among China men as false hair is among their pale faced ssttr If a Chinamans hair is thinner or shorter than he consid ers desiintle he supplements it with a switch which is sometimes made of hair and sometimes made of sik The rest is easy for a lap Chinese garments become him as if he were to the manner born He must speak Chinese ol course and if he speaks it with an accent nobody is going tn know it but his Chinese neighbors and theyin the present state of their feelings toward the invading Rus slanp are not going to say anything bout it So it happens that Japanese yes see and Japanese tars hear all that Russia conceals from the rest of the world The Russian viceroy may give newspaper correspondents their walking papers as he has done before now but all his repression and his sensorship will not keep his every move from being reported In Tokyo as promptly as news can travel There are men in Washington who have recently returned from Japan and whose interests require that they shall b well acquainted with the sit nation there who believe that the in formation which comes to the Mika dos government from its spies ac counts in large part tot the apparent willingness of Japan to match her strength against an enemy that seems to be her superior Perhaps they say Rutsla is not so well prepared for war in that quarter as she is sup posed to be A statement cabled to the London Times a week or two ago by its cor

to sugar it may be due to glycerine or to the formation as ageis acquired ol sweet ly tasting ethers The presence ot glycerine in wines is frequently over isyaccording to the actlvltly of the yeast Sometimes the proportion of glycer ine is as much as onefourteenth of the volume of the alchohol says the Lancet Some old wines pos sess a peculiar sweet flavor which on analysis show a proportion ot sugar quite inconsistent with the degree of sweet Such a wine would be rejected by many because the sweetness would be regarded as an indication of an undesirable proportion of sugar Testimony of a

This Indian Village which is still marked by three large burying mounds is on what is locally known as the Old Orchard land ts the proptrty of Mr Sam Bennett The names of the three pioneers hue been

largeatticI low poplar treys and the house twelve rounds high The rafters were oak 5x6 inches and were sawed with a whip saw The sheeting was also sawed with a whip saw and nailed on with shopmade

the Presidential nomina tion has found its way to Kentucky j and is having an apparent effect on the Hearst boom in this State I Since New York State has Instructed its delegation for Judge Alton B Parker the local antiHearst forces have been consolidating their forces and it appears even to the Hearst supporters that the candidacy of Mr Hearst is doomed The Hearst organization in Louis vllle and tall over Kentucky has in the lat few days cometo the con clusion that its strength will prove too insignificent to cope with the great swoop of the Parker legions now organizing Democrats

Of A PIRATES DAUGHTER FRANK R STOCKTON Il IOprrl tit MB by U Applcton Co San York CHAPTER VII KATE PLANS T was nearly nn hour before Kate and Mr ewe o m be returned and when they camo back they did not look happy DIckory observed their sad visages but the sight did not make hint sad Kate took Dame Charter by the hand and led her to tho benchYou been so kind to me she said that I have almost come to look upon you as a mother even though I have known you such a little while and I want to tell you what I have been talking about and what I think I am going to do Mr Newcombe now stood by and DIckory also His mother was not quite sure that this was the right place for him but as he had already done so much for the young lady there was perhaps no reason why he should be debarred from hearing what she had to sayThis gentleman said Kate indi cating Martin Newcombe sympa thizes with me very greatly in my present unfortunate position having no home to which 1 can go and hav ing no relative belonging to this is land but my father who is sailing upon the seas I know not where and therefore in his great kindness ha offered to marry me and to take me to his home which thereafter would be my home and in which I should have all comforts and rights Now Dlckorys fare was llle the slay before a shower Ills mother saw ii out of the corner of her eye but tic others did not look at him This was very kind and very good continued Kate Not at all not at all interrupted Master Newcombe except that it was rind and good to myself for there Js nothing in this world which you need and want as much as I need and want youAt this Dlckorys brow grew darker- I believe all you say said Kate for I am sure you are an honest and a true man but as I told you I can not marry you for even had I made up my mind on the subject which 1 have not I could not marry anyone at such a time as this not knowing my fathers will upon the subject or where he is The sun broke out on Dickorys countenance without a shower his mother noticed the change But as I must do something Kate went on a plan came to me while Mr Newcombe was talking to me and I have been thinking of it ever since and now as I speak I am becoming fully determined in regard to it that is if I can carry It out It often happens she said with a faint smile that when people ask advice they be come more and more strengthened in their own opinion My opinion and m1fatherhis ship he agreed to take me with him on a little voyage leaving me with my mothers brother at the Island of Jamaica not far from Spanish Town In purposing this ho thought no doubt that it would be far better I for me to be with my own blood if his voyage should be long rather than to live with one who is no rela tive of mine and does not wish to act like one This then oelng my fathers intention which he was prevented by reasons which I know not of from carrying out I shall carry it out my self with all possible dispatch and go to my uncle in Jamaica by the earliest vessel which sails from this port Not only as this is my natural retuge in my trouble but as my father intended to go there when he thought of hav ing me with him it may be a part of his plan to go there anyway even though I be not with him and so 1 may see him and all may be well Clouds now settled heavily on the faces of each of the young men and even the ordinarily bright sky of Dame Charter became somewhat overcast although in her heart she did not be lieve that anybody In this world could have devised a better plan under the circumstances than this forsaken Mistress Kate Bonnet Now there is my plan said Kate with something of cheerfulness In her voice if it so be I can carry it out Do either of you know glancing at the young men impartially but appar ently not noticing the bad weather If in a reasonable time a vessel will leave here for Jamaica DIckory know well but he would not answer Kate had no right to put suet a thing upon him Newcombe how ever did not hesitate It is very hard for me to say he made reply but there is a merchantman the King and Queen which sails from here In three days for Jamaica I know tills for I send some goods and I wish Mistress Bonnet that I could say something against your sailing in her but I cannot for since you will not let me take care of you your uncle Is surely the best one in the world v to do It and as to the vessel I know not go sailing away oneIyourself cried Dame how safe she I may be Oh no cried Kate and the more we talk about our plan the more fully It reveals itself to me in all Its various parts I am going to ask you to go with me my dear Dame Charter and as she spoke she seized both of the hands of the other I have funds of i my own which are invested in the town and I can afford the expense Surely my good friend you will not let me go forth alone and all unused to travel Leaving me safely with my uncle you could return when the ship came back to Bridgetown Dame Charter turned upon the girl a look of kind compassion but at toe same time she knit her brows Right glad would I be to do that for you she said but I cannot go away and leave my son who has only me Take him with you cried Kate Two women traveling to unknown shores might readily need a protector and If not there are so many things which he might do Think of it my dear Dame Charter to my uncles home in Jamaica is the only place to which I can go and if you do not go with me how can I go there Dame Charter now shed tears but they were the tears of one good woman feeling for the misfortunes of an other I will go with you my dear young lady she said and I will not leave you until you are In your uncles care Kate walked to the boat with Mr Xewcombe he having offered to undertake her business in town and at her fathers house and to see the own ers of the King and Queen in regard to passage DIckory stood radiant speaking to no one Master Martin Newcombe was the lover of Mistress Kate Bonnet but he DIckory was going with her to JamaicaThe I following days fled rapidly Longvisaged Martin Newcombe whoso labors in behalf of his lady were truly labors of love as their object was to help her to go where his eyes could no longer feast upon her and from which place her voice would no longer reach him went with a bitter taste in his mouth to visit Madam Bonnet to endeavor to persuade her to deliver to her stepdaughter such further belongings as that young lady was in need of- That forsaken person was found toI be only too glad to comply with request hoping earnestly that neither the property nor its owner should ever again be seen by her She was In high spirits believing that she was a much better manager of the planta tion than her eccentric husband had ever been and she had already en gaged a man to take the place of Ben Greenway who had been a sore trou ble to her these many years She was buoyed up and cheered by the belief that the changes she was making would be permanent and that she would live and die the owner of the plantationSo baggage was put on board the King and Queen a very humble vessel considering her sounding name and Dame Charters few belongings were conveyed to the vessel in Dick orys canoe the cottage being left in charge of a poor and wellpleased neighborThe and Queen dropped down the stream and Master Newcombe stood sadly on the pier while Kate Bonnet waved her handkerchief to him and to her friends Dame Charter sat and smiled at the town she was leav ing and at the long stretches of the river before her She knew not to what future she was going but her heart was uplifted at the thought that a new life was opening before her son In her little cottage and in her little fields there was no future for him and now to what future might he not be sailing CHAPTER VIII BEN GREENWAY IS CONVINCED THAT BONNET IS A PIRATE lT how In the name 0Icommon sense did l = t Jever think o becomln a pirate Master Bonnet said Ben Greenway as they stood together Yere so little fitted for a wicked life Out upon you Ben Greenway ex claimed the captain beginning to stride up and down the little quarter deck I will let you know that when the time comes for it I can be as wicked as anybody I doubt that said Ben sturdily Would yo cut down an murder Ui6 Innocent Would ye drive them upon an unsteady plank an make them walk Into the sea Could ye raise thy great sword upon the widow an the orphanNo more of this disloyal speech houtfft Uonnt t Or I wil put y II u 01 n wavering plat k and make you walk into the sea Now Greenway laughed An if ye did he said yo would next Jump upon the plank yoursel nn slide swiftly into the waves that ye might save your old friend an serv ant knowln ho canna swim Ben Greenway said Bonnet fold tug his arms and knitting lila brows I will not suffer such speech tram you I would sooner have on board aiPresbyterian parson An a happier fate couldna befall ye said Ben for yo need n parson malr han ony neon I kIlOWIBonnet looked at him for a moment You think so said tion Indeed I do eald heIThere now cried Bonnet I j you Ben that I could be wicked upon j occasion and now you have acknowledged It Upon my word 1 can beIwickeder than common as you see when good fortune helps us overhaul a prize toI The Revenge hind been at sea about a week and nil had gone except she had taken no prizes The crew had been obedient and fairly orderly and If they made fun of their j farmercaptain behind his back tbeI showed no disrespect when his eyes j were upon them The fact was that i the most of them had a very great j respect for him as the capitalist of i the ships company Big Sam had early begun to sound the temper of the men but they had not cared to listen to him Good fare they had and generous treatment and the less they thought of Bonnet as a navigator and commander the more j they thought of his promises of rich spoils to be fairly divided with them when they should capture a Spanish I galleon or any wellladen merchant man bound for the marts of Europe la fact when such good luck should befall them they would greatly prefer to find themselves serving under Don net than under Big Sam The latter was known as a greedy scoundrel who would take much and give little being inclined moreover to cheat his ship mates out of even that little It the chance came to him Thus Big Sam found that his time had not arrived and he swore In his soul that his old shipmate would someday rue that he had not earlier stood by him In his treacherous schemes One morning they sighted a brig sail ing southward but as she was of no great size and not going in the right direction to make It probable that she carried a cargo worth their while they NOW UOtNDED EVERY IlE1RTtPON I Till SWIFTLY rOlKSING VESSEL OF THE PLANTERPIRATE turned westward and ran towards Cuba Had Capt Bonnet known that his daughter was on the brig which he thus disdained his mind would have I been far different but as It was not knowing anything more than he could see and not understanding much of that he kept his westerly course and on the next day the lookout sighted a goodsized merchantman bearing east wardIevery upon swiftly coursing vessel of the planter pirate There were men there who had shared in the taking of many a prize who had shared in the blood and the cruelty and the booty and their brawny forms trembled with tho old excitement of the seachase but no mans blood ran more swiftly no mans eyes glared more fiercely than those of Capt Bonnet as he strapped on his pistols and felt of his sword hiltAh ye needna glare sot said Ben Greenway closo at his side Ye are no pirate an ye canna make yoursel believe ye are ane an that ye shall see when the guns begin to roar an tho swordblades flash Better get be low an let ane o these hairy scoun drels descend into hell in your place Capt Bonnet turned with rage upon I Ben Greenway but the latter having spoken his mind and given his advice I had retirellIto Big Sam and run up the Jolly Roger let the rascals see what we are Tho rascals saw Down came their flag and presently their vessel was steered into the wind and lay to Shall we board her cried Big Sam I Ay board her shouted back the l infuriated Bonnet Run the Revenge alongside get out your grapplingirons and let every man with sword and pis tols bound upon her deckI At tho very head of tho line of ruffians upon the deck of tho Revengoi stood Ben Greenway and held no sword and wore no I 2 eyes flashed as brightly as any glimmering blade in the whole ships com panyThe two vessels were now drawing very near to each other Men with grapplingirons stood ready to throw them and the bow of the wellsteered pirate had almost touched the side of the merchantman when with a bound of which no one would have considered him capable tho good Ben Greenway jumped upon the rail and sprang down upon the deck of the other vessel This was a hazardous foit and if tha Scotchman lied lIon more about nautical matters he would net have essayed It before the tvo vessels hud been fastened together Ignorance made him fearless anti be alighted la safety on the deck of the incrclmiitinnn at the very Instant when tho two ves sels having touched separated thoui selves from each other tot the space of a yard or two There was a general shout from tho deck of the pirate at this performance of Ben Greenway Nobody could un derstand It Capt Bonnet stood and yelled What are you about Ben Green way Have you gone mad Without sword or pistol youll beTho astonished Bonnet did not finish his sentence for his power of speech left him when he saw Ben Greenway hurry up to the captain of tho mer chantman whb was standing unarmed with hilrew about him and warmly shake that dumfounded skipper by tho hand In their surprise at what they beheld the pirates had not thrown their grapnels at the proper moment and now the two vessels had drifted still farther apart Presently Bon Greenway came harrying to the side of the merchantman dragging its captain by the hand Master Bonnet Master Bonnet ho cried this is your old friend Abner Marchand o our town an this is his good ship the Amanda I knew her when I first caught sight o her figurehead havln seen It so often at hrpier at Bridgetown An so now tint ye know wha It is that ye hue Inadvertently captured ye may cu off your men an bid them sheathe their fright cutlassesAt a roar arose from tho pirates who having thrown some of their grapplingirons over the gunwale of the merchantman wore now pulling hard upon them to bring the two ves sels together and Capt Bonnet shouted back at Ben What are you talking about you driveling Idiot havent you told Mr Marchand that I am a pirate Indeed I hae no cried Ben for I dont believe ye are ane at least no to your friends an noebours To this Bonnet made a violent reply but It was not neard The two vessels had now touchod and tho crowd of yelling pirates had leaped upon the deck of the Amanda Bonnet was not far behind his man and sword In hand he rushed towards the spot where stood the merchant captain with his crew hustling together behind him As there was no resistance there was so far no lighting and the pirates were tumbling over each other in their haste to gut below and find out what sort of a cargo was carried by this easy prize Capt Marchand held out his hand Goodday to you friend Bonnet he said I had hoped that you would be one of the first friends I should meet when I reached port at Bridgetown but I little thought to meet you before 1 got there Bonnet was a little embarrassed by the peculiarity of the situation but his heart was true to his new career Friend Marchand he said I see that you do not understand the state of affairs and Ben Greenway there should have told you the moment no met you I am no longer a planter of Barbadoes I am a pirate of the sea and the Jolly Roger floats above my ship I belong to no nation my hand is against all the world You and your slip have been captured by me and my men and your cargo is my prize Now what have you got on board where do you hail from and whither are you boundCapt Marchand looked at him edly flXI I sailed from London with a of domestic goods for Kingston thence having disposed of most of my cargo I am on my way to Bridgetown where I hope to sell the remainder Your goods will never reach Bridge town cried Bonnet they belong now to my men and me What cried Ben Greenway fly speak wlout sense or reason Hae ye forgotten that this is Mr Abner Mar chand your fellowvestryman an your senior warden An to him do ye talk o taken awa his goods an legal chat telsBonnet looked at Greenway with in dignation and contempt Now listen to me he yelled To the devil with the vestry and da the Scotchmans eyes and mouth were so rounded with horror that Bonnet stopped and changed his form of ex pression confound the senior war den I am the pirate Bonnet and regard not the Church of England Nor your friends interpolated Ben Nor friends nor any man shouted BonnetAbner Marchand I am sorry that your vessel should be the first one to fall into my power but that has hap pened and there is no help for it My men are below ransacking your hold for the goods and treasure it may con tain When your cargo or what we want of it is sate upon my ship I shall burn your vessel and you and your men must walk the plank At this dreadful statement Ben Greenway staggered backward in speechless dismay Yes cried Bonnet that shall I do for there is naught else I can do And teen you shall see you doubting Greenway whether I am a pirate or noTo all this Capt Marchand said not a word But at this moment a womans scream was hoard from below and then there was another scream from another woman Capt Marchand started myIfrightened my passengers Shall I go and bring them up Maj Bonnet They will be better hereI Ayrny cried the pirate captain surer 01 tt here should bo female pas i 0t e a board and Marchnnd- iili Uj ijcii Greenway disappeared btiow I Confound women passengers said Bonnet to himself that is truly a bit j of had luck In a few minutes Marchand was back bringing with him a mlddloigo and somewhat pudgy woman very pale a younger woman of exceeding plainness and sobbing steadfastly and also au elderly man evidently an Invalid and wearing u lung drcbsln gownBen Greenway now approached the pirate captain and led him aside I Let your men make awa wl time cargo as they pleasel doubt If It ho more than odds an ends for such are the goods they bring to Bridgetown an let them cast oft an go their way an yo an I will return to Bridgetown tho Amanda an a ninny yet be wcel Iin bit o1 folly belli forgotten- It might have been supposed that Bonnet would have retaliated upon tho Scotchman for thus advising him in the very monism of triumph to give up his piratical career and to go homo quietly to his plantation but Instead of that ho paused for a moments re flection- Ben Greenway said ho there Is good sense in what you say In truth I cannot bring myself to put to death my old friend and neighbor nod his helpless passengers As for tho ship it will do mo no more good burned than unburnod And hero Is another thing Ben Greenway which I would fain do and it just came into my mind I will write a letter to my wife and one to my daughter Kate There is much which I wish theta to know and which I have not yet been able to communi cate I will allow the Amanda to go on her way and I will send those two letters by her captain They shall bo ready presently and you Ben stand by these people and see that no harm comes to i At this thelllIshouts ruin forwardI men have discovered my store of spirits in a short tiino they will bo drunk anti It will then bt unsafe for those my pasI senjjiTS Bid them 1 pray you to con voy the liquors aboard your ship Well said cried Bonnet I would not lose those spirits And stepping forward ho spoke to Big Sam who hud just appeared on deck and ordered the casks to be convoyed on board tho llrvengtf The latter laughed but said Ay ay sir Returning to Capt Marchand net said I will now step on BonI ship and write sonic letters shall ask you to take to Bridgetown with you I shall be ready by the time time rest of your cargo Is removed Tho captain of the pirates sat down in his wellfurnished little room to write his letters and the noise and contusion on deck the swearing and tho singing and the shouting to bem heard everywhere did not seem to this turb him In the least Ho was a man whoso mind could thoroughly engage itself with but one thing at a time and tho fact that his men were at work n sacking the merchantman did not In the least divert his thoughts from his pen and paperiSo he quietly wrote to his wife that t he had embraced a pirates life that ho never expected to become a planter again and that ho left to her joyment and management of his estateI In Barbadoes He hoped that his ab sence having now relieved her of her I principal reason for discontent with her lot she would become happy and satisfied and would allow those a1l0utI her to be the same He exi I send Ben Greenway back to her to help take care of her affairs but if she should need further advice he advised her to speak to Master Nowcombo rhe letter to his daughter was different it was very affectionate He assured her of his sorrow at not being able to take her with him and to leave her at Jamaica and ho urged her at the earliest possible moment to go to her uncle and to remain there until she heard from him or saw himthe latter being probable as he Intended to visit Jamaica as soon as he could even in disguise if this method were necessary I He alluded to the glorious career upon I which he was entering and in which I he expected some day to make a great name for himself of which he hoped she would be proud When these letters were finished Bonnet hurried to the side of the yes sel and looked upon tho deck of thei AmandaCapt Marchand and Greenway had been waiting in anxious expectation for the return of Bonnet and wonder ing how in the world a man could bring his mind to write letters at such a time as Take thisIleaning over the rail and give them j to Capt Marchand I Ben Grenway at first declined to tako j the letters which Bonnet hold out toIhim but tho latter now throw them his feet on tho deck and running for I ward ho soon found himself in a vio lent and disorderly crowd who did not seem to regard him at all booty and drink wore nil they cared for Presently came Big Sam giving orders and thrusting tho men before him Ho hind not been drinking and was in full possession of his crafty senses Throw oft tho grapnels exclaimed Big Sam and gel up the fore lj And then ho perceived Bonnet With n scowl upon his face Big Sam unuttered I thought you were on tho merchantman but no matter Shovo her off 1 say or Ill break your headsThe grapnels were loosened the few much who were cm duty shoved desperately the foresail went up and tho two vessels began to separate But they were not a foot apart when with a great rush and scramble Bon Green way left the merchantman and tumbled himself on hoard the lUvonso Bonnet rushed up to him Yew

my head an throw overboard my corpse but my live body stays here as lung as ye do With a savago growl Bonnet turned away from his faithful adherent Things were getting very serious now and ho could wasto no time on person al quarrels Great holes and splits limit boon discovered in the heads of tho barrels of spirits and tho precious 1l quor was running over till decks Thli was the work of the sagacious Big Stun who lid the strongest desire la get away front tho Amanda before Uio pirate crew became so drunk that tlay t could not tonnage the vessel Ho was a deep man that Big Sam mill at this

before a verdict was reached On the first ballot ten of the jurors were for hanging and two of them for a life sentence Much argument and persuasion were brought to bear on the to jurors who favored a life sentence but with out avail They would not consent to the Infliction of the death penalty The crime for which Hughes must spend the remainder of his days be hind prison bars was one of the most
