I9UI1 Dllipca Ujr uuiKJJij , MVHV>WW.W
> Industry and success in business Is entitled
to the (rood opinion of the world,
and to be freed of the stigma by commutation
of sentence or pardon, was the
quick decision of President Roosevelt today
In a case replete with thrilling Incidents.
It was the case of John William
January, alias Anderson, who has been referred
to in the press as an American
Jean Valjean. and It is probable that he
. will be released from prison within a day
or two.
. I Senator Warner of Missouri called upon
* the President today with a huge bundle
of petitions and letters from the best
known citizens of Kansas City, bankers,
merchants, lawyers and ministers, asking
that the chief executive grant a pardon
at once to Williams. The papers presented
by the Missouri senator contained 12,50*)
names, and the President was informed
that the people have taken such a great
interest in the case that there Is a petition
now being circulated In Kansas City containing
87,000 names.
The President Acts Promptly.
Without hesitation, the President wrote
the following note upon one of the sheets of
the petition:
"Department of Justice:
U "in view 01 me statements ot trie judges,
bank 'presidents, and so forth, who know
him, I think Anderson's nine years' life as
an honest citizen, hard-working and of good
reputation, warrants us in commuting his
sentence at once or in pardoning him outright.
Which do you think ought to bo
done? Are there sufficient reasons for not
doing either?"
Senator Warner hurried to the Department
of Justice with the note of the President
and the papers and It Is expected that
the case will be taken up Immediately by
the Attorney General, who will forward to
the President for his signature a formal
recommendation for pardon.
John William January, when about twenty-one
years old. broke into the post office
at Hennessey, Okla., and obtained a small
amount of money and some stamps. He
was captured, tried at Guthrie and sentA
fifo voara in lTnrt T.pnvAnwnrth
ft prison. He was a model prisoner and
earned the commutation for good conduct
, that goes to those who obey the prison
ft rule*. One day he found a guard asleep at
^ his post and yielded to the temptation to
take quick leave. He got away, leaving
^ eight months of sentence to be completed,
ill From that day he lived an hone-st life. He
u first got work on a railroad, saved some
* money and went to Kansas City. There he
ft got a job on a street railroad. He made a
ft good name among his fellow workmen and
' with his employers. He refused to spend
_ his money in dissipation, .\obody suspected
A that the man who gave his name as Chap.
t? Anderson had ever been In prison or was
* trying to hide a criminal history.
* Anderson refused to drink or take part
5ft In revels. He. refused to join In the red
hot political fights -tn that city or to vote
* in any of the elections. The fact that he
16 would not go into politics aroused curi^
oslty, but caused no suspicion. He knew
, that lie naa Deen a, convict anu men uc
* had lost his right to vote. He didn't propose
to violate any law in this respect.
Saving his money for some time, Ander*
son got enough to open a sn-.all restaurant
near the car barns of the street railroad
on which he had been employed. His
r patronage was largely from among his
" former fellow workmen. His popularity
increased anil not a word to his discredit
, was spoken by anybody. He made money,
* fell in love with a good woman and asked
her to marry htm. He thought that his
f, past had been forgotten. After he had
* made enough money to buy a larger and
* better business lie sold out the one he had
built up and was looking around for a new
opening when a convict who had known
* him In prison met him on the street and
Insisted oil going Wlin mm 10 ins Home
anil attemped to put himself on terms of
* equality.
^ Anderson Betrayed.
3 Anderson rebuffed the man. told him ha
* was trying to lead an honest life, had a
* good wife and a happy home, and would
1ft not join in any of the propositions made to
him by the visitor.' This settled Anderson's
fate and he knew it. The convict wanted
'<6 the reward of $00 for the capture of escaped
? prisoners and he betrayed Anderson to the
* police of xvansas City. Two policemen arrested
him and locked hi'm up. Anderson did
u not deny his identity and went back io
* prison to serve out his term.
* The good citizens of Kansas City learned
t, about the case and "got busy," and Mis?
souri followed. Everybody took hold, wrote
* letters and signed petitions. The state house
of representatives joined in the request.
Appeals for mercy filled ihe mails, and
, Senator Warner's clerk has been kept busy
* In the last three days receiving tnese aocuments
and preparing them for submission
r to the President and the Department of
* Justice.
When January's wife heard of his arrest
she left her household uties, took her baby
* In her arms and went to her husband. She
In told him she would stand by him to the end,
although she had been kept In Ignorance of
, the facts. She followed her husbana to
* Leavenworth to be near him while he was
In prison, and she spends all the time with
^ him that the prison authorities will permit.
^ The Story of Ben Daniels.
^ The President has once before shown his
o sympathy for the man who lives down a
? prison record. Ben Daniels, the present
* United States marshal of Arizona, once
* served a term In prison for theft when a
boy. He atoned for that by living an uplight,
courageous, honest life. When the
?, Spanish war came on he enlisted in the
* Rough Riders and was a fine soldier, at*
tractlng the personal attention of the
^ President. Despite his prison nistory tne
President made him a United States mar*
shal. and only a few weeks ago he sat down
at the table of tile President aa a guest
k at a luncheon to James Bryce, the British
O ambassador.
* Crew and Passengers Saved?Craft
* Bay Be Total Loss.
? PORT HURON. Mich., April 30.?The
* small passenger steamer Pilgrim, valued at
% 116,000 and carrying four pasengers and a
^ crew U1 LWCHIJI-DI* i'l'ti., n no iuii aeuu? a

The little steamer was In danger of foirnd^

* The crew and passengers were 3afely
lb taken off by the life saving crew. The PllC
grim is exposed to the heavy northeast gale.
J and if it continues will probably be a total
* loss.
fc Strike Has Reached Crucial Point.
fc FERN IE, B. C., April 30.-Th? strike sltk
uation has reached a crucial point. Labor
^ leaders Lewis and Shocken have been
^ using every eirort to get tne men to rcturn
to work, pending the sitting of the
* board, but from -returns of the votes from
fc tlje different locals their efforts appear to
c have been signally unsuccessful. The men
T appear to have taken matters Into theii
* own hands and have decided not to return
until they receive satisfactory answers to
> n? their demands for increased pay.
