Takes His Sentence From
Judge Silliman With
-AVERY ON TRIAL
Two Circuit Judges Are Hearing Cases
-Curious Turn in Flint Divorce
Case-Various Matters on
Kane was found guilty of robbery by
tbe Jury yesterday afternoon. He Is
the native who rodo In a Chlnaman'a
hack same distance up the Tantatus
road, and arriving at a secluded spot
treacherously stunned the hackman by
blows on the head with a stone held In
his hand. Then he dragged the uncon
scious roan from the cnrrlago Into tlio
edge of the woods, rilled his pockets of
money and, finally, left him tied by his
queue to n tree. Attorney Geo. D.
Clear was assigned to defend the pris
oner, but thcro was no evidence forth
coming for his defense. This mornlas
Judge Silliman, who presided at the
trial, passed sentence on the ruffian.
Judge Humphreys was also on the
bench at the time, and the courtroom
was crowded. Kane preserved the
Hardened demeanor that had character
ized him when tho complaining wit
ness, visibly wrecked by the brutal
treatment he had suffered, told on the
witness .stnnd the story of his tcrrlbla
experience. Ills Jaws worked Inces
santly on n quid of somo kind. He
nover winced while tho Judge repeated
the details of his Infamy. Even wh.'ii
the words were pronounced, "I sen
tence you, Kane.to Imprisonment at
hard labor for twenty yearB," the stolid
wretch scracely winked and only by nn

WAS NOT ON REEF
Tim American ship Invincible, Mac
l.mzle matter, arrived in port this
fuiuinnn In tow of the tug Fearlens.
.She Is now anchored In Iho stream.
Several people spread Ilia report this
morning that tho Inducible was on
the reef off Kalii but tills nil turned
out to be a mistake for which, it seems,
there Is some excuse.
The lnrlnlcble Is from Ncncastlo
with a cargo of coal to ordernndshe
arrived off port at about 11 o'clock last
night. Captain Mackenzie, formerly
of'tlie Matilda, states that he became
confused by the various lights In the
harbor and along the water front as he
was coming down, and got too close In.
He could hear no breakers and
thought he was all right. In order to
ascertain the depth of the water lie was
in, Captain Mackenzie had the lead
cast. The lino got snarled and this
bothered htm. 'When tho lead finally
reached bottom It showed only ten fa
thoms of water. Tho captain had hts
anchor dropped and found that It rest
ed In only seven fathoms of wu'ter. He
paid out forty-five fathoms of chain
'lid remained at an anchorage over
night. It Is fortunato that there was
no south wind blowing for If there had
been, the Invlnclble'would surely havo
gone on the reef.
When the day broko It was found
that the ship was only four or five
ship's lengths from tho edge of tho
reef. This Is undoubtedly the reason
why people up on tho slopes of Punch
bowl thought the vessel had gone on
Whenthe Fearless wena out after the
Alice Cooke this morning she spoke the
Invincible and made arrangements to
tow her In after attending to tho Allco
Cooke. The Hleu went out a little later
but found she had been forestalled
and returned to port.
In Strong Army
At the closing exercises of the Uni
versity ot Chicago Gen. Joseph Wheel
er made an able address on tho topic
"Our Pacific Possessions." He brlollv
traced the history and development of
tho Islands recently acquired by the
United States and gave the results of
Ills own observations as to the ro
sources and possibilities ot our new
dependencies. Ho said the destiny of
tho human race was to be guided In
the future largely by tho Government
ot the United States.

that Alabama enacted the law that the

Judge Estce cut things short by rul
ing that tho claim of the sailors for

ground ot the ruling was that the sail

to Captain Knacke on tho voyage.

THE JAPANESE DEPOSITS
Attorney F. J. Rorry has filed a suit
on behalf of a Japanese laborer ngalnst
one of the Japaneso Immigration com
panies to recover the amount of plain
tiff's luink deposit under his contract.
Ily stipulation of tho Japanese (Ipvern
mcnl contrnct laborers from Japan
were required to deposit n certain per
centage of their earnings In the Yoko
hama Sperle Hank agency. Tills was
to Insuro n fund to pay tho labore's
passage home. If ho desired to 0
home, at tho termination ot his con
tract. Ills patrnal Goernmcnt would
not have hltn stranded In a foreign
country . Since all labor contracts be
came, void upon the advent of American
law here, somo of the Japaneso labor
ers consider that their deposits cannot
bo withheld from their demnnd. -Tho
suit Instituted by Mr. llcrry Is a test
caso lo settle that question. In tho
meantime this Is one of the matters
that Mr. Abe, secretary of tho Japaucao
Foreign Office, looked Into while hero
nnd on which advices from the Japan
ese Government, based on his report,
are expected by Consul Salto. It Is a
question tho anlutlon of which will bo
anticipated with much ' curiosity,
whether tho dictum of the Japanrro
Government will avail anything In faco
of a possible decision by the local
courts In favor of tho claimants. Tho
total amount on deposit Is supposed to
bo nbout J 1,2.' 0,000.
