Ilaus and Knudc Knudsen Plead
Guilty to Train Robbing.
SENTENCED FOR TEN YEARS.
TEE PSISOKESS HEVEE FLINCH WHEN
THE SENTENCE IS TBONOinTCED
The Charge Delivered by Judge Neville.
On Wednesday all doubt as to
the identity of the suspected train
robbers was put to rest by their
coming" into court, upon the advice
of their counsel, and confessing- to
their connection with the crime.
To most of people this action was
unexpected, on account of the
reticence of the prisoners. Many
persons believed in the guilt of the
culprits, yet realized the difficulty
of establishing the same, owing- to
the circumstances of; ,the robbery.
The crime for which they were
sentenced was committed on the
21st inst., and there is no reason
why the fellows, should not easily
be incarcerated by the 31st inst.
within the walls of. the state peni
tentiary; It is thus that retributive
justice generally promptly over
takes the criminal in this western
country. This disposition of the
case will certainly save a big" bill of
costs to Lincoln county for which
all the tax-payers will say "amen."
The following" is
THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT.

Hans: I have
never been arrested.
Judge Are you two the only
ones connected with this offense?
Answer Yes sir.
Judge. Anybody else with you?
Answer No sir.
Judge You -understand that the
penalty for this offense may be
anywhere from three to fifteen
years, in the discretion of the court.
It is a very grave offense for two
young men to undertake to hold up
a train, containing three or four
hundred people (or at least a great
number) and to undertake to rob a
railroad train in this manner. It
is daring and desperate, and the
court regards it as a very serious
offense. It is one that cannot be
looked upon lightly, because when
two young men of your age start
out with ttre-idea that they can, in
a civilized community, hold up a
train and blow open its sate and
take the property out of it without
fear of man or law, they are terri
bly mistaken. Unless the company
was very dihgent
men no cojnmit sucli desperate
deeds, and unless, the law is en
forced, no one would be safe in any
While the court is disposed to be
somewhat lenient with you, for the
reason that you have,, without put
ting the county to the expense of
thousands of dollars to have you
tried and a verdict rendered by a
jury, and that you have also saved
the company of the necessary ex
pense which it would incur in look
ing after the case, as all persons
have to do when their property in
terests are at stake, and taken as
you have taken theirs, I say, that
as you have seen fit to save to the
corporation and to the county this
expense, the court feels that he
ought not to impose upon you the
full penalty. The court does feel,
that men who are guilty of such a
crime, should not be turned loose
among the people.

while you are in the penitentiary
lead upright lives, aud follow the
bidding of the officers in charge.
If you do this there will be good
time allowance taken from your
sentence; two months for the first
year, two months from the second
year, three months off the third
year, and four months off for each
year thereafter. This item is of
great importance to you.
The court will say further, that
he believes that if you have spent
your time well and have been upon
good behavior, . your minds will
have changed to. the direction f
being good and well behaved. With,
the trade which you will be com
pelled to learn, you will be pre
pared to make a liTing"without re
sorting to- committing:; crime, and,
that by being good citizens and. be
ing disposed to respect the right's
and property interests of every
body else the remainder ot your
lives may be happy arid prosperous.

who followed you- so rapidly,
and after you have served the
prison sentence imposed upon you,
and have learned a trade, you will
feel thankful for the course that
has been talcen.

each one of you be taken by the.

The, prisoners listened atten
tively to the charge of the judge,
but gave no sign of flinching when
the sentence was pronouncsd. The
court room was thronged by an
eager throng of railroad men and
other citizens who had collected to
get sight of the train robbers. The
judge's charge was off-hand and
delivered with evident feeling. .

THE "WOELD'S WHEAT CE0P. ,
According to the estimate of the
Hungarian minister of agriculture,
which is usually accepted as very
trustworthy, the world's wheat
crop of 1895 is 232,000,000 bushels
less than that of last year. This is
not a very great falling off, but it
is perhaps sufficient to prevent any
material decline in the price,
though in the face of reported re
ported reduced crops abroad there
was a decline in wheat the past
week and the market closed without
any marked evidence of firmness.
The first effect of the Hungarian
minister's estimate was to send
the.pnce up a fraction, but large
receipts from the northwest caused

a reaction. -It is interesting to
note in this connection that there
is claimed for the states of Minne
sota and North Dakota an increase
in the yield of wheat this year over
last of 22.000,000 bushels.
"What proportion of the decline in
the world's yield will be borne by
the United States, cannot yet be
accurately determined, but it will

country is concerned, is the fact
that the export ""movement contin
ues comparatively small, having
been for the past week, according
to the commercial; reports, only
about half the amount of the corre

L-for the last four weeks the exports
of wheat and flour were less than
one-half of those of the correspond

of affairs at the present price of
wheatls not encouraging, but it is
reasonably to be expected that" the
export , movement,- .-wjll improve
from nowon, though' it? is hardly
likely to so increase as to cause an
advance of price; f Indeed, it would
seem, that wheat growers may as
well make up their minds that the
price is not going to be materially
if at all higher, and that little is to
be gained by holding back their
grain, since in any event the
market will adjust itself to the
