The prisoner was taken before
Judge Chapman shortly after eleven
o'clock this morning and in response
to a query as to what he had to say in
regard to sentence being pronounced,
maintained a stolid silence. The
judge then proceeded to sentence the
man, and decreed that the sheriff dur
ing the next thirty days, should con
duct him to the penitentiary, where
he shall be imprisoned at hard labor
for a term of two years. Lindsay ap
peared unconcerned during the whole
proceeding. Sentence beiuj concluded
the prisoner 3 counsel requested the
court to fix a supersedeas bond and
grant a stay of execution, but the same
was denied. The defense accordingly
took an exception to the ruling and
gave notice that it would prosecute an
appeal to the supreme court.
Lindsay w ill be taken to the peni
tentiary during the next few days.
It is said to be very rare for the su
preme court to grant a stay of execu
tion in cases of this nature and as a
consequence the prisoner will most
likely wait the settlement of the ap
peal as an inmate of the penitentiary.

The Louisville Courier-Journal takes
the following shot at Sheriff Etken
bary , and which, in justice to the sher
iff, is not a just presentation and does
that oilieial an injustice:
It is true that Sheriff Eikenbary
did a neat and commendable piece of
work in the hanging of Hill, but it is
also as true that Sheriff Eikenbary is
well paid for his services assheiiff,
and if it becomes the duty of the sher
iff to hang anyone, and it is in the con
tract for him to do such odd jobs, we
don't ste that he should be allowed a
cent more than the law allows forsuch
work. This, we believe, is 530 per
hpad, and unless he can persuade Hen
well to come back from the pen and
take the medicine inai is uue uuu, c
can't see how the sheriff is to give
value received'1 for the J100 allowed
him by the commissioners. As Hill
