Franklin, a former deputy I'nite, States marshal, now employ ed by the defense as an Investigator, ,was released late today on 10,00' j-ash hail, to appear In court tomorrow to answer to charges of bribery and attempted bribery sworn lo against him by Lirowne, while George N. Lockwood, an unsummoned venire man, and C. K. (Cap) White, an al iened stakeholder, both arrested, are at liberty and according to Histrii t J Attorney Fredericks will appear a.' witnesses against Franklin. Five Ifiidred dollars taken from l.ockwood's pockets, Is declared by the prosecution to have been the firsi payment of a sum which he was o have received If he would prevent an adverse verdict In the McNamara case, and $3,600 found on White was declared to be the balance to In paid when the Jury was discharged. Humors of a grand Jury investiga tion to determine where the money came from flew ihick and fasi tiiroi lr ut the flay. No grand Jury Is now In session but a special one may be called. This is not neces sary so far us Franklin Is concerned because his case call) be taKen care of through an Information filed by the district attorney, but If it is de sired to reach any one not under ar rest an Indictment Is necessary. investigator lirowne said that no more arrests would be made today, although curlier In the day he had i predicted other more important ones were to follow. There was nothing stereotyped about the arrest of Franklin, it wins no hotel room or saloon scene tamil lar to writers of exposes. The deputy marshal, seasoned lor years with what ever acquaintance with criminal tofethods and with the meth ods devised to catch criminals his work may have given him, was arrest ed on a street corner, in the heart of the Los Angeles wholesale busi ness district in broad daylight while one detective, disguised as a laborer, stood unscreened close enough to him to hear what he said and lirowne himself, sheltered by a building, al so was close enough with his assist ants, to catch the three men before any of them could take their hands out of their pockets, alter. It 'is al leged, they had stuffed the motley into them. So, hands in pockets, they were marched to the Hall of Records build ing where the McNamara trial Is staged on the fourth' floor, and Dis trict Attorney Fredericks waited for them nt the end of ft long corridor on the eleventh floor. Hands In pock ets they entered the office and when the hands came out, lirowne de clares, the yellow bills clung to tlieir fingers.' Twenty minutes later two 'of the men Lockwood, the ve nireman, and White, an ex-juror and supposed stakeholder went out of the swinging doors free men, hardly enough time having elapsed to allow the dictation and signing of a state ment, if this was done. Announcement that they would ap pear against Franklin as state's wit nesses followed. Franklin, unperturbed, remarked that the state would find It was mis taken and had no case. Questioned as to the legal status of I.ockwood arose as soon as the report of the arrests gained circulation! lie had not hee(i reached by a subpoena. 1'tiless some one other than an offi cer of the court told him he was on the venire list he had not known it, an,i if he did know it, he could not have been bribed to "hang a Jury" or do anything else to it. This the Mate concedes. District Attorney Fredericks, however, asserted that Lockwood was legally connected with the Jury from the moment his name was drawn. Fredericks holds that when the big list of 1,600 names was made out last January every man on it be came aware that he would be sum moned at sortie time or other to do Jury service In the department in which the McNamara trial Is being held. It was from this list of l,0ll names that detectives on both sides of the case admittedly have been at work securing as much evidence In formation as possible about the ve niremen. The McNamara uttornejb as well as the prosecution have been present during preliminary examina tion of talesmen with books of ad vance data. When Franklin was arrested and searched he had on his person vari ous notes about yrospeetlve Jurors and it Is known about the court room heretofore that Franklin was gathering details in this connection .for the ijeretise. 5 In his. office tonight ' Detective HANG ' Samuel L. lirowne told the story of the arrest. " It was hard to arrest Pert Frank lin." he said. "He iias been a per sonal friend of mine for years and my daughter was soon to have attend ed his daughter's wedding, but it was a case of violating the law and per sonalities cculd not count. "We had been watching both White and Franklin for some time. My suspicions were first aroused when I learned that Franklin . who knew Lockwood personally. Went to see him at Walnut Center, fifteen miles from him, afttfr they had not been together for a year. I learned that Lockwood name was In the big jitry wheel and that he golne time would be drawn. Franklin did not re-visit Lockwooj until last Saturday when the new panel of fifty names was announced. - Then night snd day our detectives watched and one night we were perched in a water tower that overlooked one of the rooms in Lockkwood's house. "We trailed Franklin's movements as usual today and one of our men followed him into a saloon, our man was disguised. He stood next to Franklin and actually took a drink with him. As Franklin passed out he went to a street corner and there were White and Look wood In conver sation Whito nacl IS.SoO in bills which he held close to his body, and bent his head down as he counted them out to Lock wood to inaicata he was acting In good faith and that the money would be his If he voted "not guilty." Wlitn Franklin mra along and joined the other two ho actually gave Lockwood $500 as a retainer. He was crouching under a motorcycle which appeared' to have been broken down at the very spot where the three men were. He was dressed shabbily and they did not pay any attention to him. "It was at th? signal from this man that we acted. White had said good bye and was walking away when lie was arrested. Immediately after wards we arres'ed Franklin and Lock wood." lirowne stated furthermore that he knew where the money in possession of White and Franklin had come irom originally. "It is all up to District Attorney Fredericks now," declared lirowne. "We have simply furnished him with all the information." Asked as to White and Lockwood, lirowne smiled. "They have made their peace with God," lie luughcd, "and are at liber ty." District Attorney Fredericks act ed quickly. Within two hours after the arrest a long bill of complaint was drawn and filed before a justice of the peace. Meantime Clarence S. Harrow, chief counsel for the Mo Nanniras, consulted with his asso ciate, LoConipte Davis, and drew' a check for 10,000. Davis went to the bank and then tu the court room where Franklin was urraigned before Justice Young. The judge fixed Franklin's bail at the exact amount of the check and ordered the preliminary hearing set for tomorrow. Attorney Clarence 8. Harrow ap peared nt his office tonight after a brief conference with Franklin. , "I've seen him." h said, "1 wllrsay that llo money has been used by the defense in the mariner alleged, and I believe the whole affair will be cleared up." . . . . "ilut It was a plant," said Attorney Davis, "and before we get through we'll know who did It and I believe Mr. Fredericks will be as surprl.std as anybody.'1 , There was no morning session of court today In the McNamara trial. The Jurors in the box and one tales man accepted as to cause, were al lowed to attend the funeral of Charles Sexton, brother of .1. M. Sex ton, one of their number. Judge Walter liordwell utilized part of the time by examining the eleventh venire and secured eleven men from It not provided with excuses as to health or business that would pass muster. At the afternoon session of court Talesman Edward M. Haskell was ex amined by the state, Assistant District Attorney ' Hay Morton producing two witnesses to contradict his testimony. The day closed with Haskell's Impas sioned declaration that neither of the two had told the truth.

F 5 TO DEATH Chicago Judge Invokes Extreme Penalty Upon the Youthful Slayers of Truck Farmer Two Get Life Terms. ' (By Morning Journal dueclul I.ed Wire. Chicago. Nov. 28. Four boys we're found guilty of murder In the first degree nnd sentenced to death, and two others were given sentences of life Imprisonment tonight for the murder of a truck farmer on the out skirts of the city a month ago. The four sentenced to death ure Ewald and Frank Shiblawskl, Phillip Sommerling and Thomas Schults. The two sentenced to life Imprison ment are Frank Kita and Leo Suchomsky, both sixteen years old. The victim ot the youthful thugs was Fred W. Gmeizow. He was murdered while on his way from hit' truck farm to Chicago markets with a load of produce. Two of the boys had revolvers, two had butcher knives and the other two had clubs. The evidence showed he pleaded for Ills We on his knees, offering the boys all his possessions because ha had a wife and n baby a month old at home. The answer of the youths was to beat h!m into unconscious ness with clubs so that his skull was fractured, his jaw broken and his nose clubbed nearly off. When the man was unconsc lous, he was stubbed four times in the neck and his throat was cut. The corpse was dragged into a nearby thicket, a club was jammed down the throat, and several bullets fired Into the life less body. The boys were arrested while try ing to soil some of the booty. Oiv of them had on the farmer s hoots. Ewald Shiblawskl is 24 years old; his brother Is 21; Sommerling Is 24 and Hchults 19. The jury was out only two hour and only one ballot was taken In con sidering each care. The youth of the two 16-year-old boys was all that saved them from hanging, the jurors said, each member of the panel leeling that they lucked the Judgment of their older companions, and that a chance for pardon should later be given them. A heavy guard stands tonight about the county jail, about the home of the prosecutor, that of Judge Fcttit in whose court the verdict was return ed and n policeman Is detailed to guard the home of each of the Jurors. Just before the men were taken in to the court room to hear the verdict, they told the Jailer that should the cleat,, penalty be voted to them a band of their comrades was prepared to In vade the court room or follow to their homes those responsible for the sent ence and revenge the verdict. However, no disturbance save the hysterical shrieks of relatives of the doomed men, interrupted the pro ceedings. When the verdict was read one by one the men as they were named in the messages of death, onl latised and had to be assisted to lit cells. The life Imprisonment sentences were the last read and the reaction which followed the unexpected order that life should be the price of their crime, threw Kita into rnnvltistnn and his companion became hysterical. The widow or the murdered man sat In court holding her baby In her lap and heard the four nirn sentenc ed to give up their lives to the state In return for the one they had taken from her. She nodded her head ap provingly, then broke down and wept crying that the verdict would not re store her husband. The boys are locked In separate cells tcnight, each under guard, Frank Shiblawskl and Sommerling are married and their wives were present when the order of death was read. The four men sentenced to be hanged were defended by an attorney appointed by the court, they refusing to employ counsel.

Imperial IM.pateh la Oit Miming Journal. Kuntii Fe. N. M.. Nov. 2S. Gover nor Mills. Chief Justice Pope ami Secretarv Jaffa, the official board lanvassing the returns from the re cent election, made little progress to I'ay. The entire session, both morn ing and afternoon was devoted to assembling the pell books from the various precincts ti ssrertain w hether or 'not any of them are missing. As the result of this work It was found that at least forty-one of the nearly six hundred precincts have failed to make returns. After considerable discussion be tween the members of the board and counsel representing the respective parties it was decided that the Judges of election In the delinquent pre. ciiu ts will he at ence called upon to make their returns as required by law. In the meantime It Is the intention of the committee to go ahead with the canvass in th expectation that all of the delinquent prctrinctR will have reported before the count on those now at hand is finished. Thus far the work of the board has been entirely devoted to assemb ling the returns and no effort has been made to ascertain the standing of any of the rival candidates, many of whom are In Santa Fe anxiously waiting to learn their fate. The race tor the supreme rourt is probably attracting the most atten tion. From the returns gathered by both the republican and democratic state central committees, It appears that It. H. Hanna, the progressive republican candidate is leading all the others by a safe margin and h' elec tion Is generally conceded. Following .Mr. Hanna comes Judge C. J. Huberts, republican, of whose election there remains but little doubt. For the third member of the supreme bench It will require the official count to decide. The most complete available returns show the election of Sum mers Hurkhart by a majority con.sld-, erably less than oii hundred over Judae Pnrker. The republicans, how ever. a?e unwilling to eonceoe Mr. Hurkhart'K ebctiou. .ir.d 'according to figures frwpi.rcd o.. their .entral committee, both Judge Parker and Judge Wright lead Mr. liurkhart. The sessions of the canvassing board are attracting considerable at tention and there is always a good crowd present In the gallery of the senate chamber during the six-hour dally session of the board. Thus far tho work has proceeded smoothly and the lawyers representing the con tending parties, while watching every move closely, have found no occas ion to take exception to the action of the board in any matter. Some little discussion arise this morning as to the manner of handling the missing precincts and as to wheth er or not It was proper for the board to proceed until nl! the returns were In. Nell! B. Field, for the democrats, was nt first Inclined to oppose the canvass In the absence of the com plete returns, but finally agreed that this method was advisable, especial ly so as the board Is without infor- , matlon as to the exact number of election precincts In New Mexico. It was pointed out to the board today that in a number of counties new precincts have been established and others abolished since the last gen eral election. This is a matter entire ly under the control of the boards of county commissioners and there is no provision of law whereby it if made mandatory on the hoards to notify the territorial secretary of changes made. Another precinct In which no elec tion was held was discovered today. This is Pearl, in Eddy county, creat ed Just prior to the election. The probate clerk of Eddy county certi fied to the canvassing hoard lh.it no supplies were sent to this precinct for the reason that a sufficient quan tity had not been provided. The clerk does not explain Just why ho old not himself provide" the necessary PROGRESS Morning Journal Will be Host to the Children of Albuquerque At Special Thanksgiving Matinee V ' The Morning Journal will he Imst to the children of All)iiiieriH' on Th.i;iK-n int; aitenv m at a hi"; matinee at the Orphenin Theater.

In order that the Jury may retire tonight to consider n verdict In the rase of Mrs. Gertrude Gibson Patterson, charged with the murder of her husband. Judge Allen rdered a session of the court for to night. All afternoon to dusk In the little court room the defendant sat almost without variation, with her elbow on a t4ble and her cheek resting on her hand, effectually concealing her countenance Irom the spectators. Her fingers stretched across her eyes, shutting out the sight of prosecutor, Ilenson, as he painted the killing of Patterson ns the deliberate climax of a completely selfish and heartless life. Twice she buried her head In her arms on the table, hut sne was not weeping. Even when her own attorney, O. V. Hilton took up her. side of the story rhc sat as before.

At the end of 'he Jury box the ex hibit was a few feet only from Alan Patterson, mother of the slain man, but she glanced nt It without visible sign of agltntlon. Attorney Hilton painted his client as the unfortunate victim of two men. He asserted that any of the assaults which Pattertion . was said by wit nesses to have made on his wife would have Justified her In killing Mm. . .
