F0UB OTHERS GET YEAR EACH Judge Passes Sentence on Me a Who Confessed to Charge. VERDICT C0MIS AS SURPRISE! Girl Leaves Town, Thinking Convio-' tion Improbable. JUROR TELLS OF DISCUSSION Arqatttal of Slmma Dae to Fact that Onlr Uncorroborated Testimony of Anderson Was GlTea Against Htm. LINCOLN CENTER, Kan., Nov. 24. Two defendants In the "tar party" case, John Schmidt and Shnrrlll Clark, late to day were found guilty of assault and battery by a Jury In Judge Orover's court. A. N. Slinms, the third defendant, waa acquitted. Sentence on the two men was deferred to permit attorneys to argue a motion for a new trial. Earlier in the day sentences of one year each in the county Jail, the extreme pen alty In Kansas for the offense charged, waa passed on Everett G. Clark, Jay Fits water, Watson Scranton and Edward Rlcord, confessed assailants of Mary Chamberlain. These defendants were ac cused of the same crime as the other men. In addition to the sentences the. court ruled that the men must pay the costs of the prosecution. An effort was made by attorneys, for Fltswater and Clark to have the court entertain a motion to grant an appeal to the supreme court on the' ground that the sentence was ex cessive. This motion was not passed on today. " Rlcord already was In Jail, having been surrendered by tis Ikoudsmen seventy seven days ago Til Xurt (old the. three other men they mllU bave a short time in which to straighten up their, business affairs. iFtswater says he wU Igo to Jail next week. Clark's business Interests may make. it necessary for him to be free for a month or more, Scranton said he would be ready for Jail in a few hour and he would not appeal his case.. Both the convicted and sentenced men took their fates calmly. Few Spectators In Coart. Only a few spectators were in the court at any time today. This wns due to the dual reasqn that . It was rot generally known, the convicted men were to be sen fenced, 'and also, because the Jury was failed to bring In a reraiot as midnight, practically every one had decided the dellberators were In a hopeless tangle of arguments from which, they could . not emerge, Just before the noon hour the sleepless Jurors lent word they wanted to see the Judge. Led by Myron Green, the Jury filed Into the court room. "Uncle Myron," as he Is called,' advanced to the Judge's bench, raised his' left hand, thumb ex tended upward by way of salutation, a custom of twenty-five years with him in the court of Lincoln county, and then re tired. Everybody settled down to hear the verdict. "Tour honor," announced the foreman. 'we wish to hear certain parts of the testimony o Mr. Slmms read again." Hopes fell rapidly with that statement. It was generally whispered among the attorneys that Slmms had made the worst showing of any of the witnesses. So, de cided the lawyers. If they were' tied up on his case, it was to be a long-drawn-out fight. .... The testimony hesrd. Judge Grover sent for the four men who had confessed and sentenced them, preparatory to putting the court In order for adjournment. The punishments were soon announced. ' Juryman Talks of Case. O. P. Sanders, one of the Jurymen, to night told how the Jurors arrived at the verdict. There was so much testimony to con sider," he said, "that it took us a long lime to go over the ground." Not a single ballot waa taken until after noon today, when the Jury had been out more than twenty-four hours. "We septn less time on the case o! Sherrlli Clark, perhaps, than any other, although It was gone Into in detail. Then we spent much time on the case of John Schmidt. The principal thing that caused his conviction was his act In shouting to a neighbor 'to come along' with the crowd that was going out to see the tarring. That made I appear tbat he was taking an unusual Interest in the episode.. "The acquittal of Pirns does not seem so peculiar when It Is considered that only the uncorroborated- tentimony of Chester Anderson was given against him.
