SENTENCE PRONOUNCED.
FLEURY GETS TEN YEARS, MEIGGS
EIGHT YEARS.
FIGHT OVER THE EFFECTS.
Judjfe Kelly Delivers a Scathing
iiebukc to Fleury and Meiggs
— Sentences the First to tiie
Full J-Jxtent. of the Law, and
the Other to Only Eight
Yeara^
Thomas Fleury was sentenced to ten
years and James J. Meiggs to eight
years at hard labor in the. penitentiary
at Sliliwater yesterday mornintrr by
Judge Kelly for their part in the rob
bery of the Merchants' ISational bank
ol $5,000 in f, r old. They were taken to
the penitentiary yesterday afternoon by
Deputy Sheriffs lteuben Clewett- and
Paul Chapel. The sentence of Fleury
was the maximum one under the law
for the cxinje of grand Jarceny in
the first degree. The condemned
men did not show agitation over
tlie sentence at the time, mm acted in a
matter-of-fact way when tht-y look leave
of Jailor Peterson and "prisoners in the
jail about 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
Meiggs told Jailor Peterson that he ex
pected a letter from his wife, now that
she has learned 'the actual fact of his
sentence to the penitentiary, and that
when it arrivesJie wanted it forwarded
to him at the prison. He and Fleury
both left instructions as to their luggage
and clothes, as well as other effects.
When the court is through with these
they are to be sent to Stillwater. Meiggs
handed Fleury a cigar, with the ex
pression, "Tom. will you smoke?" and
lighted one himself. They donned their
top coats in the outer corridor of the
jail and were handcuffed together. They
said good-bye to the other prisoners
that crowded to the front of the cat:e,
and walked out of' the jaii. As they
passed down Fifth street they tipped
their hats to the female employes in the
kitchen and chatted among themselves
as they went down street iv charge of
the deputies.
When the men were taken into court
to be sentenced County Attorney Butler
moved for sentence in the Fleury case.
The court room was crowded at the
time, and Judge Willis occupied a seat
on the bench beside Judge Kully.
Henry Johns was present on behalf of
the prisoners. Fleury stepped to the
bar at the mention of his name. Judge
Kelly made inquiries which developed
the information that Fleury is thirty
one years old and is a barber by
trade. In response to the query as to
having anything to say why sentence
should not be pronounced against him,
Fleury handed a letter to the county
attorney which was addressed to Judge
Kelly. The letter was perused by his
honor. It contained an appeal in re
spectful language for a merciful sen
tence, for the alleged reason that a
severe sentence would be a hardship to
his wife and children. Judge Kelly,
speaking of the letter, stated that it was
not possible to consider the contents in
lixing sentence.
Before passing sentence. Judge Kelly
told Fleury that he had been given a
fair trial before a carefully selected
jury, and had been defended by as able
counsel as may be found at the bar of
any court. As tUe trial judge he could
lind no error in the trial. The stale is
one of the younger ones of the Union,
and yet it can boast of being shivairous
and merciful and in advance of sister
states in the inducements and oppor
tunities offered for leading exemplary
lives and in offering criminals induce
ments to pursue peaceful methods in
procuringa livelihood. All safeguards to
life, liberty and property are guaranteed
by the state. In the judgment of the
court there is one class of people that
the state has no use for outside of
prison walls. They are the professional
lawureakcrs, the men who live by law
lessness, and the sneak thieves, toot
pads or brigands. Such as these have
no reason to expect Leniency from any
court; mercy in such cases would not
be justice. From the evidence in the
case it was reasonable for the court to
believe that Fleury belonged to the
class indicated, and he would be dealt
with accordingly. The sentence of ten
years was then pronounced. Fleury
did not flinch at the statements and sen
tence of the court.
Fleury, addressing the court, made a
declaration that was a surprise to those
within hearing, lie told the court that
when the last defendant in the case was
disposed of he will have a communica
tion to make to the court that will
astound the court and the whole com
monwealth. It relates, he said, to the
acts of detectives in the case, and is
known in part by the county at
torney, and more fully by Chief of
Detectives McGinn and Chief of
Police ' Garvin. Until the last
of the men indicted for the
offense has been tried, Fleury declared
that his lips would be sealed.
Fleury then asked the court that his
bajigage might accompany him to Still
water. Judge Kelly informed him that
the personal effects would be looked
after by the county attorney.
James J. Meiggs was then called up
for sentence, lie informed the court
that he has a wife and children living
on the coasj. By trade he is a watch
maker, a maker of dials and emery
wheels, liis age is fifty-eight years
and nine months.
Mr. Johns spoke at some lencth on
behalf of Meiggs, stating that he had
not been at the bank at the time of the
robbery, and asked tor a merciful sen
tence. Judge Kelly stated that in view
of the fact that Meiggs is an old man he
wouid make the sentence lighter, and
named eight years as the period of his
servitude.
Meiggs asked the court to return to
him the £775.50 taken from him at Chi
cago, together with his baggage, some
mining stocK ana private papers. The
court informed him that a claim had
already been made for the money by
his attorneys, and that the matter would
be disposed of in a legal way. It is
said that the Meiggs watch was turned
over to him some time ago and has been
disposed of. The Merchants' National
bank and the attorneys for the
defense are already contesting
the ownership of the Meiggs
money. The money was assigued to
\V. \V. Erwin and Henry Johns on
Sept. G last. On petition made by
Messrs. Erwin aud Johns, Judge Kelly
yesterday made an order citing the
Merchants' National bank and the
clerk of the court to .show cause in
special term of the district court Sat
urday, Jan. G, as to why the money
taken from Meiggs should not be
turned over to Erwin and Johns. On
that day the county attorney will ap
pear and answer that the money is in
the hands of the court as evidence, and
that it should remain there for six
months, being the time in which an
appeal iv the Meiggs case may be
THE SAISTT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: SATL'KDAY J&MStfEfq, DECEMBER 23, JS93.
taken. The attorneys claiming: the
money assert in their petition that the
$775.50 assigned to them was not
identified as part of the stoleu
money. The question as to whetn
er the bank can secure the
money upon a judgment against
Meiggs, or whether it should go to the
attorneys under assignment, will make
an interesting case for the court to de
cide.
The county attorney refused to dis
cuss the statement made by Fleury
relative to his intended disclosure after
tlie cases of Miller and Howard are dis
posed of.

DEATH OP JOHN I>B GftAW.
Another Old and Good Citizen
Answers the Final Itoll Call.
Death claimed for its victim yesterday
John De (iraw, one of the early citizens
of St. Pf.ui. He was not active in pub
lic lift*, lint as a private'eitizen leaves
a most enviable and honorable record,
l>einsr esteemed and respected by all
who Knew him.
JOHN DE GHAW.
Mr. De Graw was born in Pennsyl
vania, Sept. 22, 1811. and was over
eighty-two years of age at the time of
his death. He removed to Cincinnati in
early life with his father, who was a
Methodist preacher. Atter learning
the carpenter trade he carried on busi
ness in Cincinnati for more than twenty
yeais. While in that city he became
identified with the abolition movement,
under the leadership of James iL Berry,
and was active lor some years in the
underground railroad which aided the
escape of negroes from the South
through Ohio and into Canada. He
came to Minnesota in ISoS, first stopping
at Frontenac, where he erected a num
ber of buildings for Mr. Garrsrd. one of
the earliest settlers in that neighbor
hood. He came to St. Paul in 1559 and
entered into partnership with William
Branch, and built several of the largest
buildings in St. Paul, the most prom
inent being the lngersoli block, on the
coiner of Wabasha and Third streets.
For the last thirty years he was engaged
in the lumber trade, and for twenty
years his sons Hiram and Siiney were
associated with him.
He was one of the corporators of
the Unitarian church in this city. The
surviving family consists of his wife
and three children, two sons and a
daughter, the wife of David Ramaley.
He, was a remarkably hale and strong
man, and gave constant attention to
business until the day he was stricken
down, about live weeks ago, with an
attack of vertigo, supposed to have been
caused by the breaking of a small blood
vessel in the brain.

.River Water Works Into the West
Side Supply.
Two small leaks have been found in
the sixteen-inch pipe which furnishes
the West side with 'its water supply.
The pipe crosses the river ten feet be
low the surface of the water from the
foot of Broadway, and an examination
made by City Engineer Rundlett and
Supt. Overtoil showed two leaks iv the
pipe about the center of the 4 main. It
is supposed the leaks are caused by de
fects in the pipe. Both can be repaired
with small expense. Supt. Overtoil
visited Minneapolis yesterday and. se
cured the services of John Lund, a
diver in the employ of the Minneapolis
works. Lund will come to St.
Paul next Tuesday and repair the pipe.

CHARITAIUjR CHILDREN.
Prepare Christinas for Unfortu
nate Ones.
The little tots in the Madison school
kindergarten embellished the Christ
mas tree in artistic stjle which they
donated to the city hospital to make
glad the hearts of the inmates of the
children's ward of that institution. The
preparation of the tree was made under
the supervision of Miss Adams, who is
one of the most successful kindergar-.
teners in the country. Dr. Ancker was.
asked if he would allow the children to.,
decorate a tree for his wards in the.'
children's department of the city hos
pital, and accepted the proposition witlr
gratitude. With this object in view tli* :
kindergarten children in the MadU'
son school have been dilieeiitry ••
working f^r over a week. The decora
tions embrace paper chains of various
colored paper, wreaths, lanterns, boats,
toys and other novelties. The work \vai-" "
done under the supervision of Mis$ ;i
Adams, and the children were allowed
to arrange the articles oil tie tree,\.
They worked with great delight auA'j
made many comments relative to thq
disposition of the tree, and the pleasure
the sick children at the hospital would
have. The tree was completed yes'ter**
day morning, and after giving the
children in all the primary grades of
the school a chance to admire it, the
tree was started for the hospital while
the children in. the kindergarten dis
missed it with a Christinas carol.

PROFIiSSOR ENTRAPPED.
Students at the Agricultural Col
lege Play a Trick.
Assistant State Superintendent of
Schools Hyde tells an amusing story of
the means taken by the students at the
school of agriculture Thursday evening
to make a presentation to Mr. Brewster,
of the school. Last year the students
had what was known as "the boarding
club," which was formed with the
avowed object of registering "kicks"
against the fare provided by the super
intendent of the culinary department.
For some weeks past the members of
'"the boarding club" have been holding
secret sessions, and at the close of
Mr. Hyde's lecture Thursday evening
the club asked Mr. and Mrs. Brewster
to step into the assembly hall to attend
a short session of the club. Supposing
that something very serious in the shape
of an objection to the regular bill of
fare furnished was coining, the party,
accompanied by Mr. Hyde, repaired to
the hull, where Mr. Brewster was elected
president of the meeting. Not knowing
what to think the gentleman accepted
the post of honor, and was very much
surprised when a moment later one of
the students on behalf of the club,
stepped forward and presented him
with a gold watch, it is unnecessary to
say that Mr. and Mrs. Brewster were
surprised, and witn difficulty found
words to express their gratituae and
appreciation.

ST. PAUL LOSERS
By Repudiations off North Dakota
Securities.
St. Paul parties appear to be losers
on some North Dakota securities where
a game of repudiation appears to have
been played successfully. The case is
that of The People's Bank of St. Paul
against School District No. 52, Barnes
County. The bank purchased the bonds
of the school district, issued under a
statute authorizing their issue, payable
in not less than ten years. Suit was
begun for non-payment of interest, ajid
the bank obtained judgment; but on
appeal to the supreme court it is
knocked out, because, through a trick
of the school officers, the bonds were
made payable eleven days before the
close of tiie ten years. The syllabus is
as follows:
"Wheiv a statute authorized the issue
of municipal bonds payable in not less
than ten years from date, bonds issued
thereunder payable in eleven days less
than ten years from date are void, even
in the hands or a bona fide purchaser.
"The invalidity of such bonds does
not effect the liability, it any, of the
municipality independently of the
bonds.
"li; is elementary that even bona fide
purchasers of negotiable municipal se
curities are charged with knowleetre of
all the requirements ot.the statute under
which the securities were issued."

WATCH EACH OTHER.
Auditor Burns and Mayor Wright
Fence a Little.
The board of abatement failed to se
cure a quorum yesterday, aud an ad
journment was had until Tuesday at
3:30 p. m. Mayor Wright and the county
auditor, with two or three other officials
and a number of citizens, were in
the room, and got to discussing matters
in general. It is known that the county
auditor and the mayor keep a weather
eye upon each other relative to the
mayoralty contest that coinos off when
the buils begin to open. Apparently
with a view of sounding Colouel
Wright, the county auditor drove
straight at him with a suggestion that
one term as mayor is enough. His
honor picked up the cue at once, and
went back with the query: "You think
so? Or don't you think that one good
turn deserves another?" The retort
will probably be construed by the listeu
ers to mean that the present mayor will
try to succeed himself.
A free open air concert will be given
by the E. D. Horton Truuk Company's

Saved by Screams.
Two highwaymen stopped Mrs. Chris

the corner of Tenth aui Johu streets
Thursday night at 9 o'clock. The ladies
had been shopping, and each was well
laden with bundles when the two
thugs accosted them. Mrs. Brunner's
two daughters' screamed and ran, and
as their cries brought residents in the
neighborhood to the doors, the thieves
skipped without securing any booty.
The police were notified, and were
given a description of tiie men.
BREAD TO THE NEEDY.
R^xy Reber Will Give Away 1,000
Loaves Today.
: There lias been a deal of talk about
helping the poor of the city and numer
ous plans have been devised to assist
tjhß needy. The latest, and also a very
practical plan to relieve the wants of
s*e>4eral hundred persons, is the one pro
posed by -Koxy Reber. who conducts a
restaurant at 134 East Fourth street.
Beginning at 11 oclock this morning the
doors of the restauraut will be opened
and 1,000 loaves of bread will
bei ( given away free to those who
call tor it. The loaves so gener
ously distributed by Mr. Ileber will
be:iianded out by attendants to all who
come, and no questions will be asked as
too haracter, residence or previous eon
c'ition. The idea of distributing free
bread is a new one in St. Paul; but the
plan has been adopted in other cities.
Some days ago J. J. O'Leary & Sons
made public an offer to Kive to the
needy 1.000 pounds of meat on certain
days, and this gave Mr. tteber the cue.
In speaking oi' tire free distributiou
yesterday Mr. lieber said he has just
opened his restaurant, and ihe plan of
giving away the bread would, he
thought, iiot only be a benefit to the
poor and hungry, but might have the
tffeet of causing oth.er business men to
make similar distributions. Mr. Ueber
promises to follow the free distribution
of bread with other articles every week
or so during the winter, and his exam
ple will undoubtedly be followed by
other business men and firms in the
city.
Appear to the Charitable.
The charitably disposed of our citi,
zens who wish to make donations to the
poor of the cr.y will find a committee o<
the St. .\incentde Paul society in the
basement of the cathedral (entrance on
St. Peter street), between the hours of
9 a.m. and 4 p. m. during the week,
read? to receive and distribute money
food and clothing to the needy ones Tha
BREAD FOR THE NEEDY.
A Generous Distribution to Be
Made by J. C. Hanley.
Among the good and charitable acts
of the benevolent citizens of St. Paul, J.
C. Hauley, of the Oil Tank line, comes
to the front handsomely. He proposes
to give away 3,000 loaves of bread. He
will give 500 loaves Saturday, Dec. 30,
and for five succeeding Saturdays make
a similar distribution, until tlw whole
amount has been given.
lie will make his distribution from his
place of business, at 249 East Eighth
street, every caller being given one loaf
mull the supply is exhausted. The ex
ample set by Mr. Ilanley is an excellent
one for others to follow.

CASE ARGUED.
Brill Takes the Indian Mound
Matter Under Advisement.
Judge Brill has taken under advise
ment the matter of the objectiou of a
number of property owners to the
assessment of benefits to lots made for
the purpose-of acquiring Indian Mound
park. Yesterday was taken up in
arguing the matter. Corporation Attor
ney Chamberlain appeared in behalf of
the city treasurer and made an argu
ment in favor of grauting judgment
upon the assessments. E. G. Rogers
and S. L. Pierce made arguments on
behalf of the objectors. It is asserted
by the objectors that the assessment
will not hold water, and more than that,
the park would not be a benefit to
property assessed, or at least a great
portion thereof.
Valuable Residence Property

forenoon on the premises. The tine

Grip, take Hood's Sarsa
