'Savannah, Ga., May 14.-Overrul
inc the motion in arrest of judgment
offered by the defense, Judge William
B. Sheppard this afternoon sentenceel
the five men guilty of violating the
herman anti-trust law, and for the
I first time so far as is known, jail sen
tences in two cases were imposed.
The sentences follow:
Spencer P. Shotter, chairman of
the board of directors of the Ameri
can Naval Stores company, three
months in jail and a fine of $5,000.
Edmund S. Nash, president of the
company $3,000 fine.
J. F. Cooper fers, vice president

injail and a fine of $2,300.

al Stores company, $2,000 fine.
Carl Moeller of Jacksonville, Fla.,
agent of the American and general
manager of the National Transporta
tion and Terminal company in Jack
sonville, $3,000 fine.
Shotter and Myers were sentenced
to terms in the Chatham county jail,
Judge Sheppard imposing the punish
ment upon them because they had
been before the court two years ago,
entering pleas of guilty. At that time
Judge Emory Speer, who was presid
ing stated that a term i~n prison would
be imposed if they should come be
fore the court -again. Nash was ex
cused on the former occasion when
the grand jury returned a "no bill''
as to him, as he was a witness before
the grand jury. Moeller's sentence
was made heavy because of his con
netion with the terminal yards in
Jacksonville, where regrading and re
gauging were alleged to have taken
The case will be appea.led to the
United States court of appeals just as
soon as the bill of exceptions can be
prepared a'nd certified to by the
court. In the meantime 'a motion for
a new trial will not be made before
Judge Sheppard. A writ of error
citing 53 grounds was filed by the de
fense immediately after sentence was
passed. Counsel attacked nearly ev
erthing the court permitted to come
before the jury to which the defense
Ientered protest. It begins with the
court 's failure to sustain the demur
re to and indi-etment and ends with
ani exception to the jury 's verdict.
Bond in the sum of $20,000 was
given for all the defendants jointly
and they were discharged pending the
determination of their appr 11.
The costs they must pay if the con
vition and sentences stand will, it
is said, reach $17,000, whieh. in the
event the sentences stand, will be ap
portionedl among the five convicted
men. The defendants were sentenc
ed separately. Judge Sheppard made
no long address, but merely gave
them an opportunity to say why sen
tences should not be pronounced, a
privilege of which they took but small
advantage, and then passed t-he sen
tences. Shotter was the last to be

GEN. BOYD ILL.
Adjutant General Stricken in Hotel
Aiken-Was Seized With Ap
Aiken. Mav 14.-This afternoon at
the Hotel Aiken Adjutant General J.
C. Bovd of Columbia. was stricken
with apoplexy and is now in a very
-serious condition. Gen. Boyd was
in Aiken for the purpose of selecting
a site for the encampment of the
Third regiment and making arrange
ments for the encampment. With
several citizens .he spent all the morn
ing driving, and the hot weather was
noticed to have fatigued the general
somewhat. After he had dinner at
the Hotel Aiken he was sitting in th'e
lobby with Capt. Rains of Charleston.
The general was noticed to be in
some way affected, and when he was
spoken to by Capt. Rains he made no
reply. In a moment, however, he
appeared to have revived, and ans
wered. His peculiar actions caused
alarm among those who saw him, but
Capt. Rains explained that he often
was thus affected, and he thought hel
would soon recover. However, in an
other moment he had fallen out of
his ehair to the floor.
Dr. T. G. Croft was summoned at
once and in a. few minutes t.he strick
en soldier was carried to his room,
where, for nearly two hours, he was
in a delirious condition. He has now
quieted, and the attending physician
states that he has hopes of recovery.
Tonight he has partially regained
The general's attack was followed
by a hemorrhage. A quantity of
blood was drawn from his arm.
He is under the influence of nar
cotich, but his condition is considered
better than a few hours ago. Rela
tives in Columbia have been notified.
Capt. Rains returned to Charleston
Adjutant General Improved.
Aiken, May 15.-Adjutant General
Boyd tonight is greatly improved and
it is thought that he will recover. He
has fully regained consciousness and
expresses himself as being in hopes
of returning to Columbia tomorrow.
Col..Brock, assistant adjutant,and
inspector general, arrived in this city
this morning and is -now at the bed
side of the stricken general. His
daughter, Miss Rosa Boyd, has been
notified of the conditon of the general

JONES CASE NOT READY.
Probable That His Motion for New
Trial Will Not be Heard Until
Union, S. C., May 15.-W. T. Jones,
who last February was sentenced to
life imprisonment in the State peni
tentiary for the murder of his wife
last July, will probably not have his
hearing at the spring term of the sa
preme court on the motion for a new
trial as anticipated.
Next Monday is the date set for the
hearing of cases of appeals from this
circuit and five days are devoted to
this business, but because the printed
case has not yet been filed with the
attorneys for the prosecution, it is
believed that the hbearing of the ap
peal will be postponed until the fall a
term next November. This will give
Jones, who is a wealthy planter and
has extensive landed interests, all the
summer to get his affairs in the best L
possible shape. O
Jones, who has been in jail here F
since last July, receives many callers,
and transacts a large volume of busi- C
ness. Since his trial he has regained
his customary health, which almost
failed him just after the conclusion of
the hearing of his case by the circuit
