St. Paul, Doc. 14.George Grant. twenty-six years old, indicted as Joseph Goosa, pleaded guilty in the Ramsey county district court of steal ing jewelry to save a friend from prosecution and was sentenced to the state prison on the reformatory plan.

Grant stated privately after the sen tence that, he was not guilty of the tkett and had nothing to do with it, except that he had helped the man who stole the jewelry drink up the proceeds. The man who stole the jewelry, however, has a wife ami child, who would be left destitute if Grant told on him.
