LIMIT4 OJf PRISO.N SENTENCES
Jadgre Thornell Takes Radical Ground
' on Subject.
Judge A. B. Thornell of Sidney, who Is
presiding over the present term of district
court In this city, yesterday expressed him'
self as opposed to prisoners being sentenced
to dofinita terms In tho penitentiary. He
gave It aa hi opinion that there should be
no statutory limit upon punishment for any
"I believe all sentences for criminal of
fense should ba made absolutely lndeler
mlnate. The convicted criminal should be
sent to the penitentiary or reformatory to
remain there until in tho Judgment Of the
proper authorities he should be paroled,
There should not be any such thing aa
entenco to a state prison for a definite
period," said Judge Thornell.
"Our present system does not really prove
an tndotermlnate sentence because sentences
as now administered terminate In a stated
period. The prisoner may be paroled before
th termination of this period, but he can
not under any circumstance be kept In
prison after tbe period has expired.
"It we find a man Is Insane we send him
to a hospital. We do not send him for a
month, sis months, a year, or for any
stated period. We send him for treatment
and he remain until he is cured or sup
posed to be cured. Th same Idea should
be applied to criminal sentences. There are
some persons who, by reason 'of hereditary
Impulses, are utterly Incorrigible. For the
welfare of society and their own good they
ought to be kept in prison all their lives,
because they are not fit to be at large.
'Statistics prove the reformatory effect
of the Indeterminate sentence and parole
system. They also show that the old sys
tem of stated sentence ha failed to re
form criminal. I believe th adoption ot
Lhe absolutely Indeterminate sentence would
In a few year make an enormous financial
and moral saving to the stale."

DEAD MAN GIDEON BROWNING
Dentist Identifies Fart of Body Found
in Michigan Church.
SEARCH FOE MISSING MINISTER
Supervisors Offer Reward of $300 for
Arrest of Rev. John H. Car
mlchael Motive for Crime
PORT HURON, Mich., Jan. t.-By
means of two false teeth It waa definitely
established today that Gideon Browning
of Adair village waa the man who wa
butchered last Tuesday evening In the
llt.tla "Rattle Run" Methodlat church In
Columbus township. .With part of the
mystery which haa enshrouded th brutal
crime thus cleared, the supervisor of St.
Clair county Immediately offered a re
ward of 600 lor th arrest of Rev. John
H. Carmlchael- of Adair, pastor of the
HUla church, and the man who wa at
first supposed to have been killed, dis
membered and then burned In the church
stovo. Tbe teeth which Identified the
dead man were found when the ashes
from the stove were sifted. Yesterday's
examination of them waa fruitless. But
this afternoon when Dr. C. H. Browbeer
of Sc. Clair, the dentist who made Brown
ing a et of false teeth recently, exam
ined them again more thoroughly he de
cided that the blackened relic were part
of Browning et. His decision satisfied
Prosecuting Attorney Brown that It waa
Browning who had been killed and th
supervisors Immediately offered the re
ward for Carmlchael's arrest and sent
broadcast detailed description of the
Motive for Crime Lacking.
Th solving of part ot the mystery
surrounding the disappearance of th two
Adair men and the discovery of th mur
der in the church came after a day of
much Investigation with little result.
Strenuous effort to discover some mo
tive for the destruction "of the carpenter
by the minister were fruitless. Rumors
that Carmlchael had been seen crossing
the St Clair river into Canada cannot be
corroborated. An officer sent to St
Thomaa, Ont., reported no trace of him
Mra. Carmlchael and Mis Carmlchael,
wif and daughter of th minister, ware
questioned today by the prosecuting at
torney here and he stated afterward
that he wa convinced that they knew
nothing of the murder nor the man' dis
appearance. A statement today by Mr.
Carmlchael that her husband's sister is
an inmate of an insane asylum In Wait
Virginia may explain some of the horri
ble features of the crime, If the authori
ties' suspicion about Rev. Mr. Car
mlchael are borne out. Mrs. Carmlchael
also said that her husband was moody
and restless the night before he dlsap
peareu ana apparently Brooding over
It was also learned today that on Mon
day, the day before the murder, the Rev.
Mr. Carmlchael came to the postofflce In
Adair, apparently much agitated and per
turbed and received a letter, which h
took away without opening. It 1 thought
that this letter may have had some con
nection with the strange intimacy be
tween the minister and th carpenter,
which had been noticed for a number of
weeks before their Joint disappearance
and the crime in the church.
