The Sentence of Wm. T. Polock
for Bobbing His Father's
The readers of the Bee will recol
lect the particulars of the Brown
ville postoffice robbery, by"Wm. T.
Polock, son of the postmaster, some
time last winter. His trial and con
viction, on his own confession, took
place in the United States District
Court Judge Dundy presiding
which adjourned yesterday in this
as follows, and is well worthy or
Mr. Polock: The indictment.!
on which you have been convicted
charges you with stealing a regis
tered letter, containing money,
from the postoffice at BrownvIIle,
in this State. The punishment pre
scribed for this offense is confine
ment in the penitentiary fota period
of not less than one year, nor more
than five years. You have seen
proper to accept the advice of your
menus wuo seemea io uudk uiai it
would be useless for you to resist a
mnviption. But little time has
been been consumed hi disposing of
the case against you, and you will
not suffer in consequence thereof.
Since your conviction, many of
your friends, some of whom are
your old comrades in arms, have
joined in testifying to your former
coot! charaoter. Your father, whom
j-ou have so deeply wronged, has
been ieristent in his eflbrts to
lessen the punishment which might
lie inflicted on you. Ho lias stoou
by you from tho start as bravely as
he and you stood by our country
when its existence was im
periled. He did not desert you
when your conduct was such as to
almost forfeit parental affection.
For tltis I honor and respect him
more than ever before. His conduct
throughout has been in marked con
trast with yours toward him.
Your father states that you volun-
teered when quite young, and
served in tho nnny with him until
you were botli hoiionibly dis
charged. This fact I have duly considered,
and shall give to it some weight.
Tho army is not a school in which
the morals of the young are apt to bo
materially improved. The danger
is that habits of the worst kind will
be contracted by the young soldier,
whilst ho is absent frqin home and
friends, and whore he is surrounded
by all tho vices with which our
armies are usually cursed. There
fore, when I am called upon to pass
sentence upon a man who has been
hororably discharged from our
army, I take into consideration the
fact that his bad habits may have
been contracted when he was in the
military service, and where I hqvp
any discretion in tho promises,
that circumstance shall lessen the
punishment that otherwise would be
imposed. Your former good char
acter, your honorable discharge from
the army, and the destitute condi
tion of your rainiiy insures to you
the lightest punishment known to
the law under which you have been
Tho judgment of the Court is that

Death of Judge Townsend.
Hon. Robert Townsend, ex-Judge
of the Probate Court, died Sunday
morning rather suddenly and unex
pectedly," his resdience in this
city, of pneumonia and inflamation
of the bowels, after a brief illness.
Judge Townsend had been a resi
dent of Omaha a little over five
years, having come hero from
Poughkeepsie, New York. In July,
1669, he formed a law partnership
with B. E. B. Kennedy, Esq., and
in the Fall of 1871, he was elected
Judge of the Probate Court of Doug
las County. Judge Peabody,the pre
sent incumbent of that office, pays
the deceased a higli and deserved
compliment, in saying tnat ne re
garded him as an honest and up
right Judge, and an honorable and
kind-hearted man. When he went
out'of office last fall all the papers,
records and accounts were found cor
rect and complete up to the very last
Judge Townsend acquired many
warm friends by his quiet and un
obtrusive manners, and his death is
generally mourned, especially as it
occurred in the very prime of life.
He was in his thirty-fourth year at
the time of his demise. He leaves
a wife and throo children. The fu
neral will probably take place to
morrow afternoon, and the remains
will be sent east for interment.
This is the first death that has
ever occurred for many years
among the Omaha bar, of which
Judge Townsend was a most
respected member. A meet
