COUNT GETS TEN
YEARS IN PRISON
Brunswick de Corompa,
leged Austrian Nobleman,
Convicted of White Slavery.
JURY OUT BUT SHORT TIME
Story Told by Autumn Stonebreaker,
Gyrl Victim, Brings Tears to
Eyes of Witnesses.
Brunswick de Corompa, who claims
to be an Austrian count, was found
guilty in the federal court at Daven
port last evening on a charge of vio
lating the Mann act. The Jury got the
case at 9 o'clock and within half an
hour bad found the bogus nobleman
guilty of having enticed Autumn Stone
breaker, aged 15, away from her home
at Crawfordsvllle, Ind., taking her to
Chicago, East Moline and Davenport
for Immoral purposes. He was given
10 years in the penitentiary at Still
water, Minn., sentence being pronounc
ed by Judge Smith McPherson.
JI'RORS IV TEAR.
The principal witness against De
Corompa was his alleged victim. The
story Ehe told about her wanderings
about the country in charge of the
count brought tears to the eyes of the
Jury. The fact that the couple were
married was proven at the trial, but
It was also shown that the girl was
taken overland from place to place for
immoral purposes, De Corompa using
her for financial gain.
