HEAVY PENALTIES FOR GAYNOR AND GREENE FINES EQUAL TO THEIR STEAL INGS INFLICTED BY JUDGE SPEER, fa Ench Case the Sum Amounts to Over Half a Million Also Sentenced to Four Years' Imprisonment in the Federal Penitentiary at Atlanta, Ca. .-Defense Will File a Bill of Excep tionsTime Asked of Court. Savannah, Ga,, April 13.-Judge Speer Jn the United States court to-day sen tenced Benjamin D. Greene and John F. Gaynor each to a term of four years In the penitentiary and to pay a fine of $575,749.90, the amount each is charged with having fraudulently obtained from the United States government. The prisoners were brought into court at 11 o'clock. Judge Speer asked coun sel for the defense If they had anything to say why sentence should not be pro nounced. Colonel P. W. Meldrlm an swered in the negative, whereupon the court imposed sentence. Each defend ant had been found guilty upon all the counts of the three indictments charg ing conspiracy, embezzlement and pre senting false claims. The sentences up on the three indictments were, respec tively, two, four and four years, but the court ordered that these run concur rently, so that the sentence was really for four years. Imprisonment is to be in the federal prison at Atlanta. The defense will file a bill of excep tions, and they asked for an order of court extending to thirty days the time permitted counsel for preparing this bill, which will be very voluminous, and that the order act as a supersedeas. Judge Speer, in sentencing the prison ers, after saying that the most painful duty is the imposition of a sentence to penal servitude, peculiarly when those convicted are men of fine intelligence and men of affairs, continued in part: "For your personal suffering, merited as it is, you have my sympathy. To some, no doubt, who are imbued with the belief that all they can get from the government Is honest graft, your con viction may excite indignation, aston ishment and perhaps not a little alarm. It seems, indeed, that the public should awaken to the prevalence of this dan gerous inclination. The magnificent : contributions from the national treas , ury made by congress for the welfare of the people all imperatively call for a lesson in thunder tones to faithless, conniving, 'unprincipled representatives of the government and the unscrupu lous contractors or other persons who would conspire to plunder the public -.treasury. "Nor should the lesson of our govern ment's conduct In this great case go unheeded. No necessary expense has Ueen spared, no necessary exertion avoided. To bring to the bar of public Justice those charged with the spolia tion of the treasury the supreme court of the United States and the privy council of England, the loftiest tribu nals of the English-speaking races, have contributed their solemn judg '.f ments." . ; Pointing out that these tribunals had approved the declaration of this court that the accused must be brought to trial before the court having jurisdic tion of their offense, Judge Speer con tinued: "It will be well for our government authorities to reflect that unless the obstructive construction placed upon our removal statutes, which delayed this case so long, shall be avoided as recommended by the president and the attorney general, it will be wholly im possible to have the speedy trial of criminal cases and the greater the crime and the more powerful and richer the culprit, the greater will be the dif- ficulty of bringing him to trial. If the government must take its witnesses to each district in which persons in dicted jointly for conspiracy or other joint crime, may seek refuge and - be " compelled to Ignore the efficacy of the Indictment and to make out the case anew, It will amount to a paralysis in the administration of criminal justice.'' If the indictments of grand juries and bench' warrants of courts having jurisdiction are to count for nothing, Judge Speer pointed out how powerless our bench and bar would have been if President MeKinley's assassination had been the result of conspiracy and many conspirators had taken refuge in dif ferent states. "Believing that it lis the certainty which deters criminals," he continued, "I will attempt to approximate in measuring your term that imposed up on his brother officer upon Carter, the late engineer officer, without whose aid and connivance the crimes in this case would have ibeen impossible. "I recognize that you have been In Jail for more than a year, that both of you are elderly men, both of you are educated men, accustomd to a life of comparative luxury and to tne com ifbrts of home. My sentence to you, therefore, is far more severe than a much greater sentence if imposed upon those who commit offenses which dem onstrate by their savagery that they are bruites without discourse or rea son." Judge Speer concluded by pointing out that srood behavior could reduce the sentence to three years each instead of four and hoped that for tha rest of their lives the prisoners would recall the nsa.lmist's Quotation: "A little righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.

The Universi-. ty of Pennsylvania baseball team tried to arrange a game with Dartmouth college here to-day but the deal fell through. The New Englanders had an off day and the Pennsylvania manager asked them to play, offering them fifty dol lars guarantee.

DECLARE PEACE IN SIGHT SETTLEMENT BETWEEN DOWIE AND REBELLIOUS ZIONISTS. Lawyers of Both Sides Take More Hopeful View Deposed Apostle's Lawyers Aot to File a Bill In Equity Dowie Promises to Retire Under Certain Conditions Wants Five Per Cent, of 20,000,000. Chicago, April 13. Peaceful settle. ment of the strife between John AIex ander Dowie and those of his followers who recently rebelled under the leader ship of Wilbur Flenn Voliva is in sight according to statements made to-night by the legal'advisors of both Dowie and Voliva. After ah all day conference, Emil C. Wetten, representing Dowie, to-night said: "We are nearer a peaceful solution of this question to-night than we have been at any stage of the proceedings. We have changed our minds relative to the filing of a bill of equity, declaring the transfer of the ownership of the property of Zlon City by Voliva to Deacon Alexander Granger to ibe void, and will await further developments. To-day, as a matter of formality, we filed a paper In the circuit court de claring that the power of attorney to General Overseer Voliva by John Alex ander Dowie was absolutely void, in asmuch as Voliva had not acted in ac cordance with the Instructions given him in reference to the execution of the powers delegated 1o him by Dowie. "Dowie, before the transfer, sent Vo liva a telegram revoking the power ot attorney." According to the contestants, the de cision of the court on the validity of the telegraphic revocation of the power of attorney will decide in whom rests the control of the City of Zlon. On this question Attorney Wetten said: "The telegraphic revocation of the power of attorney is absolutely legal, and will stand in aiiy court of law." At the termination of to-day's con ference, which was participated In by V. V. Barnes, legal adviser oj Zion City, Jacob Newman, counsel for Vo liva, and Attorney Wetten, represent ing Dowie, Mr. Newman said: "Dowie and his advisers admitted to day that we had in our possession doc umentary evidence to the effect that Dowie and his advisers admit that ninety-five per cent, of the Zion prop erties belong to the Christian Catholic church, and h has acquiesced in the proposition that If he Is given five per cent, of this property, alter ne nas uen installed in temporary control, both ec clesiastical and financial, he will retire "In other worde, Dowie desires to be vindicated, reinstalled with the full powers attending the first apostleship of the Christian Catholic church, whereupon he will issue an edict, de claring that ninety-five percent, of the property of Zion City belongs to the. church and that five percent, belongs to Dowie. This would give to Dowie $1,000,000 and to the church $19,000,000." STRIKE WITHOUT WARNING. Seven Hundred Vienna Mall Cart Drivers Quit. Vienna, April 13. Without warning 700 drivers of mall carts in this city struck to-day for an increase in pay. They had been receiving about $20 a month and demanded an addition of from $2 to $i.

Missouri Senator Declnres That Al though Obtrusive, Audacious and Spectacular the President Has Shown Vaccilntlou Instead of Steadiness and Vainglory Instead of Solid Worth Folk Says an Unprecedented Politi cal Review is Going; On. Kansas City, April 13. Five hundred .Missouri democrats, including 150. Mis souri editors, attended a banquet to night given by the Missouri State Dem ocratic Press association to commem orate the birthday anniversary of Thomas Jefferson. The principal npeak ers were Governor Joseph W, Folk, United States Senator William J. Stone, Congressman Charles A. Towne of New York, and Charles W. Knapp of the St. Louis, Republic. All the speakers! made a plea for party harmony in this state and predicted that at the next election 'Missouri would again be found in the democratic column. Senator Stone averred that President Roosevelt's administration ought not to inspire democratic adulation. He add ed: "Although obtrusive, audacious and spectacular, Roosevelt's career, as I view it, has been signalized by weak ness, not strength; by .vaccination, not steadfastness; by vainglory, not so'id worth. For whatever he may do that ie right, give credit. I am neither for him nor against him; I simply take him for what he is. I will support him when he is right, but I shall not court him with blandishments, nor swell his van ity by blowing upon him the incense of flattery. I am a democrat and underi the banner of that grand old party I am content to stay." Governor Folk said in part: "Jefferson announced the cardinal doctrine of true democracy when he declared for 'equal rights to all; special privileges to none.' This maxim expresses every es sential element of true democracy- It comes to us to-day as a message from the past for it applies to the conditions to-day with even greater force than when it was first announced by the father of democracy. That was one of the first declarations against what is known in modern times as graft. Graft in its last analysis is a special privi lege either exercised contrary to law or one the law itself may give. "An unprecedented political revival Is going on in the United States to-day on this subject. The next few years will be distinguished as the time in which the reign of the special privilege is brought to an end and the doctrine of equal rights fixed in national politics and in the conscience of mankind, There are some who are appalled by the exposures of official venality and private depravity and are disposed to exclaim in a spirit of dismay, "O tern pora. O mores." To my mind the most hopeful sign of the continuance of gov ernment by the people is these very ex posures." CHEAT BALl.OO v ASCEVSION. Four Men to Make Trip from Plttsfleld to Boston.

AN ANGLO-RUSSIAN ENTENTE GREAT BRITAIN VIGOROUSLY PRESSING NEGOTIATIONS. Triple Alliance of Eugluud, France and Busslu Against Germany British Statesmen Striking While the Iron Is Hot Have Recently Given a Desire to Settle Outstanding Difficulties. St. Petersburg, April 13. Great Brit ain has begun to vigorously press ne gotiations for an Anglo-Russian en tente, with the purpose of completing the triple alliance of Great Britain, France and Russia against Germany, which has long been the aim of British policy. The developments at the Alge ciras conference, Where G:reat Britain, France and Russia acted in unison, and the participation of English bankers in the big Russian loan furnish a partic ularly favorable moment, and Great Britain Is striking w-hile the iron Is hot. Besides, the British government has re cently given Russia proof of her desire to settlo outstanding tJiHeultles by In ducing English bankers not to take the Persian loan, on' the ground that it might be regarded as prejudicial to Russian interests. i The sentiment here In favor of the entente also has been aided by the dec lination of Germany to participate in the Russian loan and by publications from Russia hostile to Germany, which have been directly Inspired from Brit ish sources. Count Lamsdorff, and lat terly Premier Wltte, have favored an Anglo-Russian entente, and the con summation is regarded as practically certain. The pourparlers between the two gov ernments thus far have only touched the questions relating to the delimita tion of respective spheres of Influence, Including the apportioning of railroad and banking concessions in Persia, Generally speaking, Great Britain wants the southern and Russia the northern half of that country. There is reason to believe that when the con sent of Persia is secured the branch of the trans-Cauoaslan railway now au thorized to the Persian frontier will be extended to Bagdad, which point, it is estimated, can be reached before the famous German Bagdad road is com pleted. When the Persian question Is settled all matters relating to the Indian fron tier which constitute a source of possi ble misunderstanding, namely, the Af ghan Pamirs and Thibet, will be re, solved. i A NTH if All I li CO A L SI I UA TION Little Hope of Peace Among Men In terested. Philadelphia, April .13. There was but little hope for industrial peace In the anthracite region to-day among the men most Interested in the coal situa tion. One and all seemed convinced that nothing short of an unexpected In tervention of some sort can now pw vent a coal strike, or rather the declar ation on the part of the coming mine workers convention that a strike exists. It is regarded as settled, according to the general belief in the region that the mine operators have gone as far as they will go. Following was the word which came over the telephone to Scranton from New York to-day from an important official In one of the larg est coal companies to the local office there: "There will be no more concessions. There will be not one Jot conceded by the operators. That is definite; that is settled. There will be no more counter propositions, just a simple refusal to consider the miners latest proposition Prominent Business Mnn Suicides. Birmingham, Ala., April 13. Paul J.

VESUVIUS APPARENTLY PREPARES FOR SLUMBER EVIDENCE OF IMPROVED CON DITION OF AFFAIRS IN VOL CANIC DISTRICT. Director Matteucci Predicts That in Two or Three Days Culm Will Helgn Activity of the Volcano and Agi tation at the Surface ' Sensibly Di minishElectric Dlschnrgen Cease Good Friday Services Take Form of Fervent Thanksgiving Exhumation of tltu Dend. Naples, April 13. No better evidence of tne Improved condition of affairs in the section affected by thtt eruption of Mount Vesuvius can be presented than the following telegram from Director Matieucci, sent tins evening from the ooservaiory on the mount: "Last night and to-day the activity of Vesuvius and the agitation at the sur face of the volcano sensibly diminished. Electric discharges ceased to-day, and the discharge was less abundant. From the presumed formation of the crater and other indications, and if the news coming to me is true of the cessation of lava at Boscotrecate, I predict with reserve that in two or three days vol canic calm will reign." The publication of this assuring dis patch ills brought Joy to the people, and to-night's Good Friday services at the churches, which were attended by large congregations, took the form of fervent thanksgiving for danger past. Conditions at Naples were so much bet ter to-day that the people were almost incredulous of the tales of terror told by those who had escaped from the towns, villages and country farther within the zone of devastation. The weather was fine, and the wind had shifted so that the clouds of ashes the volcano instead of, enveloping Naples were carried in the direction of Caserta. The apprehensions of the populace gave place to a smiling confidence in which there was no reflection of the terror which had prevailed for the past week. But in bther quarters there Is no escaping from the awful evidences of the volcano's fury. A Bosotrecasn the exhumation of tho daad Is being carried on by soldiers, who, owing to the advanced state of decomposition of the corpses, are unablfc to work more than an hour at a time. The work is one of great cost of money n well as of danger and arduousness to those en gaged in It. Many of the bodies are nearly shapeless, unrecognizable mass es of flesh and bones, while others are but little disfigured. As quickly as pos sible they are burled In quicklime to lessen as far as may be the danger of epidemic. None but those engaged in the work of recovering the corpses are permitted in the vicinity. After the last great eruption which occurred in 1872 the land covered by cinders did not produce, crops for seven years and the losses in this respect alone averaged $20,000,000 yearly. It is believed that It Will take ten years to bring the land under cultivation again. The people as a demonstration of their gratitude for the sympathy which led to the French squadron being sent here, enthusiastically greeted the French sailors when they landed. The Duke of Abruzzl arrived to-day In his motor car. He had passed through the ash belt and was hardly recognizable, being covered with ashes and cinders. , He will soon sail on his projected tour of exploration In South Africa.

Capital of 3150,000,000 Would Serve to Prevent Money Stringency and Ac companying High Rates of Interest Movement Given Impetus by the Re cent Stringency in the Money Market Name of National City Bank of New York Mentioned In Connection With the Plita. ' . New York, April 13. It was learned today that a plan is under discussion among certain bankers in this city to establish a bank with a capital of tso.- 000,000 for the purpose of regulating money rates and preventing periods of money stringency and accompanying high rates of. interest. The movement was given some Impetus by the recent stringency In the money market. The name of the National City bank wae mentioned in connection with the plan, and one suggestion was made that the stock of that -bank be Increased by $25,000,000 or $50,000,000 in order to give it a control of the financial situation in this city sufficient to prevent the recur rence of periods of extreme high rates for money. Another suggestion was that a trust company be organized un der the direction of the 'National City bank, hut officials of that .bank declar ed that they were not taking more than a passing interest in the various plans. Some financial concerns which have taken an interest in the movement assert- that such an Institution might ex ercise considerable control over the for eign exchange situation to the extent of regulating imports and exports i gold, somewhat as does the Bank of England. A leading bank official, how ever, said that the only cure for such money evils as the New York Kiaricfc-t has recently witnessed lay in the es tablishment of a central ibank, whlrli shall be given the power of issue in times of emergency. It was ascertained to-day, that a se ries of questions hearing upon this sub ject has been forwarded by the special currency committee of the New York Chamber of Commerce to clearing committees of the leading cities of the United States. The bankers are asked to notify the New York committee whether they 'believe that a "central note-issuing bank similar to those in France, Germany, Austro-Hungary and other countries in Europe with' branches In leading cities, and with, power to rediscount for national, banks and etate ibanking istitutions, but not for individuals, would be a -better so lution of the present currency problem than a plan permitting all banks .to is sue notes against their resources?"

Thanks Austria for Support at Moroc can Conference. Vienna, April 14.
