ed tin; convicted hunk president had
bPKun seivici of the sentence at
Stensland plnuded guilty on two
indictments, one charging embezzle
ment and the other charirinif violation
of the State, parking lawa. A fine of
$120 was Vufposed on the latter
chargr, which was based upon the
acceptance of $00 in deposits after
the-bank was insolvent. The sentences
imposed, which will perate concur
rently, are from one to five and one
to ten years, making the longest term
the prisoner will be c mpelled to serve
not more then ten years.
Stensland's arrival in Chicago was
greeted by a crowd of several hund
red persons, who awaited the coming
of the Twentieth Century Limited, on
which the prisoner and his captors
were passengers. To reach the cabs
which were to convey the party to
. the Criminal Court building, it was
necessary to wait for the police to
clear a passage from the entrance of
tho baggage room, by way of which
the prisoner was conveyed to the
street. The crowd was demonstrative,
although offering no violc nee, and the
effect upon Stensland was noticeable.
He became nervous nnd seemingly
apprehensive of bodily harm. The
drive to the Criminal Court building
was accomplished without i.icident.
State's At to ney Healy was wait'
Ing his private office for the arrival
of Stensland and the prisoner was
hurried, haggard and trembling, be
tween a double line of police i.ito
Healy's presence. A conference last
ing over an hour ensued between
Stensland, Healy, Assistant State's
Attorneys Oiseu and Barbour and
several attaches of the office. What
Stensland made known to the State's
attorney was not divulged.
The court proseedings which follow
ed immediately were conducted hur
riedly. Silence fell over the court
room as Stensland faced the bar. His
form was shaken with emotion and
he kept a handkerchief in his hand
and frequently brushed away the
tears that sprang to his eyes. Judge
Kerslen, before whom the proceed
ings were conducted, addressed the
prisoner, whom he had known many
years as a citizen and business man.
He reviewed the case briefly and ask
ed if Stensland had any defense to
offer. Upon receiving a negative
reply the Court passed sentence, and
without further cetemony Stensland,
the deputy sheriffs and the State's
attorneys filed out of the courtroom.
Stensland was unaccompanied by
friends or attorneys during the entire
Kefore 3 o'clock all the routine
necessary to commit the convicted
man to a cell had been completed.
Mrs. Sandberg, who seemingly was
much moved by the evident distress
of her father, fainted in the warden's
reception room at the penitentiary
as the last details of the incarceration
were being completed.

San Francisco, Sept. 27.- Malcolm
T. Vance went on the witness stand
in his ds'" defense yesterday after
noon ):ld the whole story of his
connect.on with the tragic events of
Sunday night, Apri'J22d, when Heber
C Tilden was shot as he was entering
the city in a Red Cross automobile.
Major Schmitz, Colonel Kelly of the
militia and several citizens testified
as to the conditions which called for
a citizens' patrol in the Mission dis
trict. Vance told a connected story, to
which he clung tenaciously during
cross-examination, which will becon-
tinied this morning. Jdge Cook
stated his intention to close the case
The first witness called for the da
fense yesterday morning was Mayor
Eugene E. Schmitz.
"What is your position in this mu
nicipality?" inquired counsel.
"The Mayor," replied the witness
"Did you, on April 18, 1900, issue
a proclamation stating that the Fed
eral troops, the members of the re
gular police force, aud all special
police officers have been Authorized
to kill any and all persons found en
gaged in loot ing or in the commission
of any crime?" enntiiiU .1 ('"iiie-el for

was asked in cross-examination.
"NV replied the Mayor, "but if
they had proferred their aid f would

Colonel V. N. Kelly, in command
of tho first Infantry Regiment, Na
tional Guard of Clifornia, testified
that he had suggested the organiza
tion of citizens' patrol companies hi
the Mission district; that he appoint
ed Henry VVrahnsley and others as
captains of such companies, with au
thority to-stop all vehicles and ar
rest suspicious characters, and that
he issued as many arms as he could
spare to such citizens' patrolmen.
The District Attorney, on cross-
examination, drew out the admission
from Colonel Kellcy that for several
days after April 18th he thought
martial law had been declared. The
witness said he thought the conditions
justified martial law.
Harry B. Walmsley testified that
h? went from house to .house to get
men to patrol Guerrero street and
that his authority was from Colonel
Captain M. O. Anderson of the
Miss'on Police Station stated that he
gladly accepted the assistance of pri
vate citizens to help maintain order
in his district about April 22d, and
that he gave them .'substantially the
same authority as his own officers.
Other witnesses for the defense
were C. L. McEnerney, who had ac
curate measurements and locations
of the bullet holes in the automobile;
James O'Leary, who once challenged
and stopped General Funston, and
was complimented by the General;
D. C. B McCarthy and L. V. Sim
mons, father of one of the defendants.
James Rolph tesiified that he par
ticipated in the citizens' patrol move
ment, under appointment from Colo
nel Kelly and from Mayor Schmitz,
and had appointed V. H. McCarthy,
who testified that he sent tho defen
dant, Vance,' to the scene cf the
tragedy oi: the night of April 22d.
John I. Hickey testified that he
served on patrol duty, and that he
and others of his company were in
structed to shoot, and shoot to kill,
any man caught stealing, looting or
setting fire to houses. Following the
testimany of Thomas Edner and
George Isbell, the defendant, Vance,
was called to tell his own story.
Vance stated that he was 24 years
old and had served in the Philippines
two years. On the night on which
Tilden was shot, Vance stated he
volunteered to stand guard at Guer
rero and Tweuty-second streets. He
carried a pistol, but his companions,
Fitzgerald and Hall, were unarmed.
' We were instructed to halt every
body, and I halted two other guards
who proved to be Boy n ton and Sim
mons. 1 stood with them at the cor
ner of Guerrero and Twenty-second
streets whi.e Fitzgerald and Hall
walked up the hill, and a few minutes
later we" saw the lights of the auto
m Jbiles corning down Guerrero street.
'The automobile was coming fast,
and what attracted our attention es
pecially was the fact that the ma
chine did not seem to slacken its
speed at the call of halt we distinctly
heard given three or four times along
"Wo also gave the command to
halt at least five times, but the ma
chine seemed to put on more speed.
We could see nothing but its lights
and the black form of the automobile
approaching. My first thought was
that some one had stolen the auto
and was escaping. I fired a shot in
the air, but when shots were fired in
my direction Irom the auto I fired
three shots at the auto in self-defense.
"When I heard the cy from the
auto, 'You've killed me,' I dropped
my arm and ceased firing. The au
tomobi'.o stopped and some i ne called
out, 'You've got one of us. Come up
here and I'll get you.' At that I re
oa'ied my revolver,, and we three
went up the hill.
"We found the wounded man lying
on the sidewalk and found Seaman
lying in front of tho auto; We open

ed Seaman's clothes and found a
bruise in the small of his back. lie
sat up and loaded his revolver. The
wound in Tilder's breast seemed
about a half inch in diameter.
"Simmons had gone for the doctor,
who arrived about the time I lifted
up Seaman. I held the lantern while
the doctor bandaged the wound of
the man dying on the curb."
On cross-examination Vance tes'i-
fied that he was positive that nine
shots were fired, four from the auto
mobile, four from his own 't pistol and
one from Simmons' rifle.

Des Moines (la.), September 21.
Charging that sho was virtually
traded at the age of 13 years by her
parents for a team of horses. Mrs
Anna Toepfer, aged 14, commenced
suit in tho District Court to-day to

Of Her Wealth.
Northfield (Mass.), September 21.
Unusual wealth was today ruled
on insurmountable barrier to admis
Eion to Northlield Seminary, made
famous by the late DwightL. Moody.
The test case was that of the daugh
ter of a prominent New York family,
who came toITorthfield, accompanied
by her mother. Although the girl's
mother is a Northfield graduate and
has been a contributor to tho Moody
schools, it was deemed inadvisable to
admit the child of luxury.
The ostensible ground forthefacul
ty's action the assertion that tho
school is overcrowded is authorita
tively said to be secondary to the de
termination of the seminary managers
to guard against wide extremes in
the social standing which obtain in
large women's colleges.
Money In Sight.
Los Angeles, September 20. Jim
Jeffries says he is a much misunder
stood man. "Say, do i't believe all
you see in the papers," said ho. "I'm
going to tell you straight. I have
never authorized anybody to say that
I am going to fight again. I have never
given the thing a serijus thought;
it never entered my head. I've
got U0 acres of alfalfa to look after
and my hands are full without schem
ing for another fight."
"Will you say that there is no
chance of you ever fighting again?"
"I'm no lortune teller," said Jim.
"A man can't tell what may happen
to him. Suppose I go broke and nted
the money? 1 might have to go to
the ring again. But that's about the
only way they'll ever land me back
In the game. As thintfs are now I
wouldn't consider it. There isn't
money enough in sight."
Then Jim turned critic and analyz
ed the fight situation.
"Of course tho San Francisco, peo
people want me to fight again," said
Distributors for Territory of Hawaii.
he, "I dont blame them for that, be
cause it means money to them. Ed
die Graney is anxious to have me
fight because he has a club up there;
Billy Delaney wants to handle me.
But who is there for me to fight?
Would the people pay money to see
me go on with Berger or O'Brien? I
told them that I did not think tliere
was a man in Ithe world who would
draw $25,000 with me and after I get
done cutting that money up where do I
get off? No, there isn't money enough
