Sargent of Salinas, who sentenced Richard Dow dall to San Quentin prison for the alleged robbery of Dr. Le land in San Francisco, has an swered Governor Pardee's re quest for a statement of the case. . "The jury," says Judge Sar gent, "was convinced of his guilt and to my mind it was the only verdict that could have \ been rendered on the testi mony. I saw nothing what ever during the trial of the case to raise a doubt of Dowdall's guilt, though subsequent de velopments seem to alter the whole case and if it lay in my power I would gladly reopen the case." Judge Sargent expresses sur prise at the recent develop ments and says the character of the evidence produced at the trial of Dowdall was also a sur prise to him. He says he under stood that the doctor at the pre liminary examination could not be certain of Dowdall's identi fication, but at the trial before him Dr. Leland was positive that Doddall was one of the men who held him up. Dowdall refused to offer any testimony and ' even when Judge Sargent offered to miti gate the punishment the pris oner still refused to make any statement.

The fact that Dowdall had made an as sault on Judge Cook did not in fluence me in any degree what ever." SAYS WITNESS WILL CLEAR MYSTERY B " • Associated Press HERKIMER, N. V..
