Morse, at one time' "ice king" and
"steamship king," whose personal for
tune a little more than a year ago was
estimated at more than $22,000,000.
was today sentenced to 15 years' im
prisonment, having yesterday been con
victed of misapplication of funds of
the National Bank of North America.
The sentence of Alfred Curtis, for
mer president of the National Bank of
North America, whowas found guilty
with Morse, wa" suspended.
May tio to Krdrrul I'rlxon.
Sentence op Morse wa's based on the
verdict of guilty of misapplication of
funds and making false entries in the
books of the bank. It is understood if
Morse goes to prison he will be con
fined in -tho federal prison at Atlanta.
Ga. A 10 days' stay in the execution
of the sentence upon Morse was grant
ed by Judge Hough. He was paroled
in custody of Marshal Henkel pending
any action that may be taken during
the 10 days' stay.
Uramatle Scene in Court.
The scene. In the. court room when
sentence was pronounced -.by Judge
Hough was a most dramatic one. The
wives of the two prisoners were pies
ent early today as if anxious to cheer
their husbands by their presence in
the trying ordeal which confronted
them When the real test came, how
ever, it was the husbands 'and not th
wives who proved comforters.
Moraie Prove Stoic.
Morse sat like a stoic when he heard
the words which condemned him to
prison. There was scarcely a tremor
of an eyelid. Curtis, too. accepted
tho news which came to him,; good
news in his case, with the same lack
of emotion that characterized Morse.
But the strain had been too great for
the women. ,
Mnt. Morse t'ollapitra.
Asjthe truth of what Judge Hough's
words meant , flashed through their
minds Mrs. Morse, who through all
the trying days of the trial had pre
served an unruffled demeanor, col
lapsed in her seat, buried her face in
her hands and began to sob convul
sively. Still weeping she was led
away to an anteroom where in a mo
ment her husband held her in his arms
and sought to console her. .
Mrm CnHIa Faints.
Nor . was Mrs. Curtis any more pre
pared for the nervous strain than Mrs.
?Jorse. When the judgment of the
court, tho most favorably for her hus
band that could be given was pro
nounced, she fainted and would have
fallen had not kindly hands supported
her. " - 4
