at tho end of her mission, the American

Met by Squadron.
The Natal had been met oft Xantuo'.cct ;
by a squadron of two United States bat
tleships and four destroyers, .and tho
funeral fleet lay " oft Sandy FIooJc last
night. A. thick fog . blanketed, the bay

With spray as they came ashore to form
a guard .of honor, and the little launch
from tho Florida . that -carried the body
to the wharf pitched so that ho ten

Circuit Court Intimates
Undue Haste Was
Manifested in Commit
ting Men to Prison.
Basis of $10,000 for
Each Year's Sentence
Used by Court to Fix
Amount of Bonds.
CHICAGO. .Tan. 3, Bail in tho
sum of $1,100,000 for thirty-two
of tho thirty-thrco union lead
ers convicted of conspiracy to
transport dynamite must bo forthcom
inp; in order that thoy may tako ad
vantage of tho "ranting of a writ of
supersedeas by tho United States cir
cuit court of appeals hero today.
W.hether this amount can be obtained
was admitted by eounsol for the dci'ou
dants to, bo n 7nattcr of jjravo doubt,
but they expressed tho belief thafc at
least some of jt, .could bo obtained
cnoilprh 16 rvccomplish the liberty of
Prosident J-'rank M. llyan, and a few
others, until a decision is reached by
tho roviowinjj court.
Sixty days was allowed, for filing!
tho appeal.
The decision involves only thirty-two
of tho thirty-three mon now in tho
Loavcnworth penitentiary, as JTerbert
S. Hockin, designated among hla fol
low prisoners as tho '''informer' will
not appeal.
Undue Haste Intimated.
Judges Uakor and Seaman heard tho
arguments aud tho decision was given
orally by Judge Baker. Ho took occa
sion to intimate that unduo hnsto was
manifested at Iudianapolia jn commit
ting tho dofnndants to prison.
Tho writ wns issued largely ou the
point, raised by tho defense that tho
iron workers wcro convicted of a con
tinuing offense a conspiracy to com
mit offenses continuously. Jn fixing
tho amount of bail tho court was influ
enccd by tho fact that tho offenses in
volved arc not extraditable- Judge
Anderson, who presided over the trial
court at Indianapolis, was authorized
to pass on the suitability and adequaoy
of any bonds offered.
Bonds Must Be Good.
District Attorney Miller of Indian
apolis, who represented tho government,
at today's proceedings, statod that the
bonds of surety companies would be I
acceptable, but that the surety must I
schedule property valued at twico the
amount of tho bond.
A basis of $.10,000 for each year's
suntoncc was used by the court in fix
ing the amount of tho bonde. As 'Ryan
was sentenced to serve seven years, his
bond was filed at $70,000, and tho
same ratio was preserved throughout
for the other convicted men.
Judge Bakers View.
Judge Baker said in commenting, on
the orrors alleged by tho ' dofcnsoi
against the trial court:
"Jn this case the writ of error is an
absolute- right; a writ of supersedeas
is not an absolute right. It has been
tho practice of federal criminal prose
cution, however, to allow writs of su
persedeas so as to rolcaso prisoners ou
bail until tho case finally ia decided on
roviow. Whilo the judgment of tho
trial court presumably is correct, yet
there is a possibility of substantial error-
error so great that a conviction
should not bo sustained.
'Tor that reason defendants should
not bo subjected, to tho ignominy of in
carceration whilo their cases aro being
reviewed, and writs of supersedeas
should :rsuo wheu it is shown that they
aro usked 'or in good faith aud not on
frivolous grounds or merely to delay the
progress of justice.
Chief Error Assigned.
' ' The chiof error assigned in this cao
is that tho defendants wore tried on tho
theory of a continuing conspiracy. As
fnr as wo have been able to learn there
ia no decision, which, definitely onsid-
