WALN GETS LIFE SENTENCE
Beoond Colored Man Tried for Flnrj'i
Murder Glad to Escapo Death.
ALL HIS LAWYERS EXPECTED TO GAIN
Irlmlaal Smiles Whva VeHlct
Read torn rtlil Uim-

Imprisonment In the penitentiary for Ufa
wii the penalty Imposed by the Jury upon
Calvin Wain for hla part in the attempted
holdup and murder of Street Car Conductor
Edward Klury at the Albright witch
March t. The Jury returned the verdict
at 4.30 yesterday afternoon after deliber
ating three-quarters of an hour.
Wain amlled Joyfully when the verdict
waa read and ha learned he had escaped
the deuth penalty, lie was led out of the
room by Sheriff McDonald Immediately
after the verdict waa read, but hla at
torneys, Joseph J. Breen and Judge E. M
Bartlett. thanked the Jury personally for
the verdict. The verdict was taken by
them a well as by Wain as a victory,
as they did not expect to do more than
save him from the gallows.
The verdict was reached without much
trouble. Six ballots were taken. On the
first the vote stood eight for Ufa imprison
ment and four for the death penalty. As
the balloting proceeded the Jurors Who
stood for hanging switched over gradually
to the majority, until the sixth vote, when
the agreement was reached. A.' C. Bmlth
signed the verdict as foreman.
The attorneys for Wain declared they
were satisfied with the verdict And It
not probable a new trial will be asked for.
County Attorney Blabaugh began the
closing argument at I o'clock and spoke
until 3:16. He made a strong plea for con
viction and the death penalty, asserting
that Wain was as much or more of a leader
than Clark, who was deviously convicted
and sentenced to dTith. At the conclusion
of his address J4dge Sutton 'read his In
structions and at 1:30 the Jury filed out.
At 4:15 It waa announced the agreement
had been reached.
When Wain whs brought Into the court
room to hear the verdict he appeared Very
nervous. He showed the strain until the
words "'life imjrlsonment" were- reached,
then his fuce become' wreathed In smiles
and lie lenned over and spoke to his at
torneys, expressing- his Joy at the verdict.
The crime for which Harrison Clark, was
decreed to suffer death and Wain life Im
prisonment was committed about 12:15 on
the morning of March S, at the Albright
street car switch. Clark. Wain, and Clar
ence Qathrlght started out about 10 o'clock
to hold up suloons. After going through
two they went, to the Albright switch In
time to catch 'the last car on which Ed
ward Fluty was conductor. Flury had
Just stepped from the car to turn the
switch when Wain, according to the story
of . Qathrlght, ordered him to hold up his
hands. Then the shooting began and Klury
was shot through the wrist and abdomen,
the latter wound causing his death a week
The arrest of the colored trio was brought
about a few days after the hooting
''through Information given to the police by
Mrs. Nettie Jones, to whom Clark gave
the money obtained from the saloon hold
up to keep. Fearing she would be impli
cated If she did not tell what she knew
she made a statement to the police and
the three men were arrested.
Clarence Qathrlght. after his. arrest, made
a confession of the whole thing and ap
peared as a state's witness In both cases,
if has not been tried yet. -
Shortly after their arrest an attempt was
made . by a mob to take them from the
Jail and hang them, but they were spirited
away and taken to Lincoln until the ex
cKement died down.
to the satisfaction of thnneands that they
are Justly entitled to the name long given
them by the press of the country, "Ihe
assassins of sorrow."
A Colorado paper In spesklng of the
Patterson-Brsinerd rompsny, says: "The
formal opening of the carnival week took
pla" yeeterday ' afternoon at 1:30 o'clock
with a whoop and a hurrah, and all bid
adieu to work snd worry, and the thou
sands who thronged the main entrance
were more than pleased with the perform
ances. At night the thousands of packed
people on pleasure bent crowded and
Jostled each other for a mora favorable
stsnd to see the sensational free acts.
There wss uproarious confusion, explosive
hilarity snd good-natured skylsrklng
'Early In the day the rroverblsl snnsll
boy snd many of the older cousins ap-
pesred at the gates and throughout the
workmen In an attempt to see all the
curiosities of the carnival. Lsst night the
demonstration of patronage was moat
gratifying to the management, and any
one who attended the midway or any of
the shows were well pleased, and the unl
versal remark heard on every hand waa
that the shows are fine, the free acts are
superb and the entire affair is more than
we ever expected."
