lYutlnnml Ward's counsel will probably
make a motion for anew trial nnd certainly
take f'Ji appeal on the validity of tlie Indict
ment. If Ward Is sentenced for ten years
the in-o ecntlou will probably not try him on
Uio other Indictments. If the full penalty Is
notnlven , another charge may be tried. The
Tilbiino says Ferdinand Ward made the foi
lowing statement to Its reporter : "I feel
thai theio was a conspiracy to convict me
regardless of evidence , and that the Improb-
nble story of the telephone was concoclfld out
of a spirit of spite and a dcslro to place
mo where my hands will be tied and my
mouth closed , hut nevertheless 1
feo.f cotitidont that tlmu and a
full Investigation of tliu business of ( irant
A-Wind will convince the public that what
1 have already said about the disposition of
moneys of the firm , Is true , and I only liopo

belong to them will IK' made to return JJiu

and now leave It to those who are empowered
by law to act In the matter to do the rest. The
hooks and papers of ( irant & Waul will
show Iho whole story and I feel sure some
one will act In the matter and show them up.
1 will not complain , but trust time will tell
what 1 am now restilcted from showing. As
tothe appeal In my case , that rests with my
atlomujH. f mean to bear whatever may
conn1 vtith a brave heart , believing that time
