ONE YEAR IN THE PENITENTIARY.
Fonad G.llty at the Hay Term, Bat Sen
tence Was Not Formally Pronounced
I'ntU Today The Supreme Court Will
Be Appeal to.
W. E. Stevens, of Moline, was sen
tenced to one year in the peniten
tiary, by Judge Smith in the circuit
court at 9:30 this morning. Stevens
was found gnilty ot the crime as
sault with intent to commit rape, on
the person of rhilomena Berkens
by the jury at the May term. The
oousel for the defendant then asked
that the verdict be set aside, aver
ring that the proper seclusion had
not been given to the jury during its
deliberations, claiming that others
than the bailiffs and jurors had
gained admittance to the jury room,
exercising undue influence over the
jurors in the compilation of the ver
dict. J udge Smith overruled the mo
tion, but did not give the formal
sentence until this morning.
Had Nothing to Say.
Stevens came into court this morn
ing, accompanied by his son, with an
expression of determination on his
countenance, not to break down, no
matter what his fate. The court, in
making the nsual inquiries of the ac
cused, why sentence should not be
pronounced, received no answer.
Stevens remained perfectly silent,
not murmuring a syllable of disap
proval of the penalty he received at
the hands of the judge, and left the
court room in charge of Deputy Sher
iff Silvia, repairing to the county jail.

The Chicago Herald's Washington
Ben T. Cable spent an hour or two
in Washington today on his way from
New York to Chicago. Mr." Cable has
just returned from his trip to
Europe, and is hurrying home to get
a hand in the campaign. He called
on Comptroller Eckels" the tirst thing
to find out as far as he could the
Illinois situation. He had not kept
up with the times at all in a political
way a thing impossible to do
abroad. He said he could give no
opinions now about anything. "All
l can say is 1 am for every demo
cratic ticket there is out there, state,
legislative, judicial and county. If
Hopkins had a city ticket in the field
I would be for that. I am going out
now to do what I can to help the
democracy, as I have done before."
Mr. Cable says he had a good time in
Europe and has improved in health
The Galesburg Mail, a republican
paper at that, pays William MeEniry
a compliment on his speech before the
Black Hawk democratic club there
Tuesday night, and after renewing it
Mr. MeEniry maintained that the
depression in business was the result
of the Sherman silver law and not a
fear of tariff legislation. Money was
withdrawn by the banks to such an ex
tent that it was impossible to borrow
enough money to carry on the busi
ness of tne country, from the time
the law was repealed the money mar
ket became steadier, and now the
bankers are going begging with their
money, wanting borrowers. The
speaker next took up the question of
labor and asked why the republicans
did not protect labor from the im
portation of foreign anarchists. He
argued that labor is a commoditv, gov
erned by the inexorable law of sup
ply and aeniana. and brought up il
lustrations to bear out the state
ment. He compared England with
her free trade and the protective
countries of Europe. Mr. MeEniry
paid a tribute to Mr. Olsen and pre
dicted success for democracy in Illi
nois. He 's a pleasant speaker and
expressed his points clearly.

The comedy, "A Clean Sweep," is
to be presented at Harper's theatre
Saturday night. An exchange of a
recent date says:
Tonight at Harper's theatre will
he presented "Old 'Squire Haskins,"
that good old comedy, intermingled
with songs.daucesand music by their
own unexcelled orchestra "of 10
pieces. The play of "'Squire Has
kins" is one of those sympathetic
comedy dramas depicting farmer life
in a series of exciting and realistic
situations and climaxes. The com
pany is said to carry a goodly por
tion of the theatrical world's scenic
attractions and promises to create a
sensation in the sawmill and pier
scene. Exchanges have been favora
bly impressed with these.
Notwithstanding the change in the
weather and the chilly winds that
whistled around the corners last
night, forcibly reminding our people
that winter is rapidly approaching,
the Grand opera house was well filled
with an appreciative audience of
ladies and gentlemen, who gathered
there to see "A Clean Sweep." And
it is not necessary to say that all
were thoroughly delighted. It was
by far the best farce-comedy seen
here for a long time, and was very,
very fanny, from opening to close.
