TEE PSISOKESS HEVEE FLINCH WHEN THE SENTENCE IS TBONOinTCED TTPOlf THEK. 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. Judge "You may stand up. What is your name . Answer "Hans Kudsenjc Judge "What is your'name?" Answer TCnnd Tvnudsen. ' ' Judge You have pleaded guilty to the charge of robbery as read to you by the county attorney, have you anything to say why the sen tence of the court should not be passed upon -ou? Ha us No' sir. Judge And you? Knude No sir. Judge Where do 3;ou live?- .. Answer In Dakota county, this state. Judge Have you a father and mother living? Answer Our mother is dead. Judge Wereyou born and raised, there.'' Answer We were born in Den mark. We was there about twelve years. Judge This is your brother, is he? Answer Yes sir. Judge Is this the first offense of the kind you have ever been con nected with in any way? & TT- - 7- TT answer xessir. na 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 in lookinjr after men no cojnmit sucli desperate deeds, and unless, the law is en forced, no one would be safe in any community. 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. rrt: 'l ' 1, j 1-9 j. lie court win say to you tliat 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. No man can beihappy who com mits such acts.. -oCou would not'be happy if you hadsricceded in get ting this money If you had suc ceeded in evading the officers of the" law you would not have been hap py men. Ydu will be better off under, the circumstances that you have been apprehended by the-officers 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. The sentence of the court is that each one of you be taken by the. sheriff of Iincoln county to the penitentiary at Lincoln and you will there be confined at hardlabor Sundays excepted, for the term of ten years. 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. . NICHOLS AITD HEESHEY NEWS. Mrs. Chas. Toillion -has about recovered from her recent illness, we are pleased to note.

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 Jt. . minister's estimate was to send the.pnce up a fraction, but large receipts from the northwest caused FALL f GOODS The Greatest and Best Line of Clothing, Hats, 0aps':Boots and Shoes Gents' .

What is especially noteworthy and not at all reassuring-, so far, as this 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 sponding week of last year, while L-for the last four weeks the exports of wheat and flour were less than one-half of those of the correspond ing- period-of'1894. This condition 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 known supply.
