walked out of the Kxecutive Chamher
at 4 O'clock this afternoon a fr?*e man.
An hour later he grgg speeding to New
York vith PgnatOT Knute Nelson, of
Minnesota, into whose charge Governor
Sulzer. having granted a full pardon,
had Intrusted him.
"I Intend to ?o right through to
Washington," paid the Senator. "After
supplying Brandt with the necessary
expenses I shall send him to Minnesota,
where hi will find plenty of hi? fellow
eountrymen to help him to make a
new start In life."
Brandt, who was sentenced to thirty
years in prison for burglarizing the
reelleanrs of Mortimer L. t-vhlff, Is a
native "f Sweden. His pari'on contains
these eandlthma:
"[."p<>n application for pardon, Foulke
E. Brandt, as a rendition of securing
that pardon, swlaannlj p?roan'se<d Gov?
ernor Sulzer that he would BO*t appear
in public, on the stage or otherwise, in
connection with his case or seek to

thereof or discussing it in puMlc for

as a further condition of securing th?
pardon has promised not to repeat
sui-h assertions. A violation of either
of these promises will be regarded as
sufficient to revoke th?' pardon and
cause him to be remanded to prison."
Drama Was Carefully Staged.
?Governor Sulzer took full advantage
of the theatrical possibilities of the
,case. There have been many spectacu?
lar scenes In the Executive Chamber in
the Capitol, but never before was th?*)
stage setting so perfect as It was to?
day. T.?uig before the hearing began
the chamber was crowded, and the at?
tendants careful!?/ guarded three
straight-barked chairs that stood In
front of the Governor's desk. The first
to enter was the Q .?.ernor.
"Tell th? warden to bring in Mr
Brandt." he said, dramatically, OeXore
taking his seat.
Silence fell o\er the room, only to be
broken by ih?>se who crowded about
the public entrance. Two of the Ex?
ecutive Chamber attendants were clear?
ing a passage for three men. The first
was Harry If, KalSST, warden of Clin?
ton prison; the second was Brandt and
the third was WllihUB Severance, the
prison's principal keeper. The prisoner
took his seat between Kaiser and Sev
"I have given this ?.ase great thought
and ? onstderatiun and have made up
my mind to do substantial justice,"
said the Governor in opening the hear?
ing. From then on the prearranged
programme was carried out without a
hitch. Not even Mirabeau h. Towns,
who presented a petition from repre?
sentatives of forty-two Swedish so
? ?Mies, was allowed to interrupt it. He
was waved aside when he attempted to
speak after the reading of the appli?
cation for a pardon.
Brandt was scrupulously dressed in a
dark gray suit, button shoes and the,
latest style of collar and tie. All
through the hearing he looked straight
ahead, apparently oblivious of the
canard that filled the room. With
shoulders thrown back and with head
erect, like a soldier on guard, the for?
mer Schiff valet sat with his arms
folded over his breast. One foot was
slightly in advance of the other, and
only once did he seem to show any
emotion. That was while Governor
Sulzer was reading a letter from Mor?
timer L. Schiff reviewing the case.
The prisoner's ?best heaved ?-ontlnu
ally, as though the contents of the let?
ter brought back to him disagreeable
memories. Schiff declared that his op?
position to Brandt's release from prison
was because Brsndt's efforts were
