Wm.Dick, Henry Mortins and Fred Joyce

The formal information filed by
Attorney W. J. Burke charged the steal

the property of C. W. Andrews and
others. To this information each plead
guilty. After hearing some evidence in
the matter and giving the prisoners some
good advice, the judge gave sentences as
follows: William Dick, one year and
three months Henry Mortins, two years
and Fred Joyce, one year and six months,
at hard labor in the pcniientiary, be
ginning at 12 o'clock Tuesday. Dick
and Mortins are respectively 22 and 28

for eighteen years. The latter acknow:

21 and is bright and well educated. His
relatives living at Walhalla are people of
high respectability and will feel his dis
grace very keenly. Joyce was at least
manly in his expressions to the court, in
that he blamed nobody but hirasfelf for
his trouble.' Court.. concluded sentence
