The following interesting news con
cerning a Platte county citizen ie taken
from the Lincoln State Journal of Sun
Governor Mickey issaed a commuta
tion of sentence Saturday to Nicholas J.
usoueman or natte county, serving
nineteen years for murder in the second
degree. Thesentenoe of Gentleman was
commuted to ten years, the minimum
aentence under the law for murder ia the
aeoond degree, which will set him free in
one year and a half. Gentleman killed
a man named Olsoa, who waa trying to
arrest him. Gentleman was intoxicated
nt the tiam. The twelve jurymen have
asked clemency for the convict Bels
tives of the murdered man protested
against clemency. Thesentenoe of Gen
tlemen began March 1. 1901. He was
thirty-eight years old when he was een
teneed. With good time allowance hia
term would expire April 7, 1914.
Eleven of the jarore aigned the follow
ing statement aad it was presented to
- "The undersigned jurors who est in the
case, State vs, Nicholas J. Gentleman, in
Platte county in February, 1901, res
pectfully make the following representa
tions: For several years before the
homicide Gentleman had been drinking
excessively and the crime was undoubt
edly the result of his long and excessive
use of intoxicants. Before removing
from the farm to .Platte Center he had
always been n sober, industrious, law
abiding man and stood deservedly high
in public esteem. We understand his
conduct in the penitentiary has been
exemplary always and we feel in view of
that fact and the good reputation he bore
before he became addicted to the use of
liquor that a substantial reduction of his
sentence would be altogether justifiable."
The other juror, Frank Morse, under
date of November 20, 1905, addressed the
governor as follows: "As I was one of
the twelve jurymen who found Nick
Gentleman guilty in Platte county. Ne
braska, for which crime he has since
been serving a nineteen-year sentence in
the penitentiary, I would be pleased now
at this time if yon would reduce his
sentence to a commitment of time and
in my estimation he has now served a
term adequate to his harsh act"
