GUILTY OF KIDNAPPING JAMES
Jury Out but Five Minutes In the

(S. F. Chronicle, Thursday 17.)
Oliver Wlnfleld Winthrop stands con
victed of robbery of James Campbell,
the rich Hawaiian planter.
The jury was out a scant five min
utes before returning 11 verdict of.
"guilty as charged." At the irequest of
the defendant s attorney the jury was
polled and each man responded that
that was his verdict. Notice of a mo

The jury received tlje thanks of the
Court for its attentive service. It was
discharged and the trial involving a
most remarkable criminal undertaking
was at an end.
There was no scene, no demonstra
tion. The defendant betrayed the ef
fect on him only by a tenser drawing
of the muscles of the face and an in
creased pallor of the countenance. He
had feared the verdict and was pre
pared for it. Not a word or u sound
escaped him. He sat stolidly in his
The proceedings of the court, aside
from the verdict and the incidents
clustering around it were not different
in character from those of the other
days of the trial. The courtroom was
filled as it has been every day, a lars
proportion of those present being per
sons who have been in attendance
every day. Near the prosecuting wit
ness was seated Cupt. Curtis, to whom
Campbell's friends turned when his
disappearance was first known. Near
him was AV. TI..Campbell, James Camp
bell's boyhood friend, with whom ho
was talking of the old boyhood days
in Scotland when Winthrop called hini
aside and started with him to the fate
ful cottage. James Streeton, another
old friend who had called at the Occi
dental Hotel on that significant 'Mon
day to bid James Campbell good-by,
was there, also Cecil Brown, Camp
bell's agent and attorney.

LONDON, Sept. lO.-r-Tlie St. James
Gazette this morning published a lead
ing editorial article headed A New
Triple Alliance." The Gnzctte points
out the menacing' tone of the conti
nental seini-ofileial press on the sub
ject of Turkey, and says: "We arc
openly threatened with joint hostile
European action If we Interfere (in
Turkey) against the will of the pow

from Russia could act with us and end
the tension. The United States and
Italy are both understood to be friend
ly with Russia. Nevertheless, neither
is yet too deeply involved to be unable
to assume an independent attitude,
under British Inspiration. Why should
not England, the United States and
Italy form a new Dreibund? Alone of
the nations of the earth, the people of
the United States can understand the
impulse which would drive English
men to war in order to supress tyran
ny or rescue the oppressed. Plenty of
Americans would regard with enthus
iasm the spectacle of the Union Jack
and the Stars and Stripes floating side
by side in the Bosphorus to back their
The Gazette says Italy is ready to
join Jingland, if invited, and con
cludes: "It might be expected that
the Russian pombination would go to
pieces at the mere aspect of this gen
uine league of peace, and the new Drei
bund might lead to a fresh grouping
of the powers and the delivery of Eu
rope bothfrom Turkish misrule and
the llungerous thraldom to Russia hit
to which it is sinking."
LONDON, Sept. 17. The Chronicle
this morning has an editorial in
which it welcomes the suggestion of
the St. James Gazette that a new drei
bund, including Great Britain, tui
United States and Italy, would solve
the Armenian problem. The Chronicle
looks upon this as a proposal having
nothing in common with cynical in
difference, and greatly 'hopes that it
will find an echo in the United States.

Clarke will not talk. An effort is
being made this afternoon to have the

Mrs. Willis does not care to prosecute.
The Bishop is away on Hawaii. George

having lived there twelve years. His

SCHUMAN IN CLOVER.
The brother of Gus Schumann has
made at Guatanuila what the sporting
fraternity calls a killing. He has been
in the livery stable and horse dealing
business there and handled a few rac
cers. At n recent great jockey club
meeting he produced a. new horse and
was able to play it for ns good as n
sixty to one shot. The animal was
first, with the rest nowhere. Schumann
is rcM)rted to have cleaned up no less
than $200,000, though this probably is
u gross exaggeration. At any rate he.
made his pile mid left. He had brought
the horse out from the eastern part of
the United States and kept it in the
interior of Guatuinala for six months.
The C'h'na's time of 9 days', 10 hours
mid twenty niliiittes from .Yokohama
beats all previous records. A .record
run will be made from this port to San
