When Judge Mcllrlilo yttitcrday after
noon pronounced sentence upon J. J.
Kcnney, convicted by the Jury In 111"
ro of assault with a deadly weapon
upon A. Y. Row, an affecting scene took
pla -f In the court room, which waa
crowded with attorneys and Interested
spectatora. The circumstances of the
rase were well known to all. n the
morning or August 1st. Kenney follow
ed Itona and his wife from the restuu
rant where lhy hud taken breakfast to
Mr. Rosa' plat of business, using In
d.c.nl lanitunire. following them Into
the room, and there continuing hla
allure. Mr. Itosa threw him out of the
room, raised a brick and threw It at
him, striking him. and a few moments
later Kenney pulled a revolver and flrd
at Ross through toe open dixir of his
office. The grand Jury rendered an In
dictment, and after a lengthy trial of
the case, the Jury returned a verdict of
guilty aa charged, and recommending
the lcf.Ti.lnnt to the mercy ot the court.
The court appointed the hour of 1:30
ytnterduy afternoon for pronouncing
sentence. When the defendant was
asked If he hnd anything to say why
sentence should not lx pronounced, his
attorney, Mr. Wlnton. arose and made
one of the must eloquent Plens for mer
cy ever heard lu a Clatsop county court
room. He rcclti-d kcvciuI ivtiinces of
a similar nature nsvntly decided In this
court, slid urged Unit In his belief It
w as the Intent Inn and purpose of the
low not only to protect the cltlsens of
a cuhiimimty. and puiilHh offend, m, but
to reform a crlmlnu! whenever It was
possible. History, poetry, and ull th
gruces of the arts were called upon to
deniointiute that as time progressed
It bud Im-cii found more expedient and
efficacious to dcil leniently with men
who, hiivlng irunsgressisl the law In a
moment of passion, were sorry for their
deed und willing to made amends. In
this particular Instance the counsel
urged that the defendant was under the
Influence of lluiior and only partially
responsible for his acts, nnd yet the
law tixik no coKiilxnnee (,f auch a condi
tion. Hut he stilted to the court that
he believed that Mr. Kenney regretted
deeply what he hud done, and that ir
the shame and stigma of the brand of
state's prison were kept from hla name
and that If bis wife and children were
not disgraced to that degree, that he
and they In the future would live apart
from the enxlionments which had
brought about their present great trou
ble. He did not ask for the lowest sen
tenre thnt could be pronounced under
the law, but stated that If a fine Was
Imposed, that he, himself, would make
every effort to ulil the defendant In
raising It, und he bclievcM that from
henceforth, as others had done towards
whom clemency had been shown, the
defendant would lend a different and
better life.
A aen.tutlon swept over the courtroom
as Judge Wlnton, during bis remarks,
turned towards IMstftct Attorney T. J.
Cleeton, and In a manly and effective
manner apologized to that gentleman
for the abuse he had heaped upon him
during the nrguments In the trial,
which he attributed to the excitement
of the moment, and the heat of trial.
He said that never before. In all his
practice, had he felt so keenly the
thrusts given him, and sharp replies
made by the district attorney, who, he
auld, had throughout the case proved
himself to be not only a gentleman, but
a thorough lawyer and logician of the
highest ability.
Closing his address to the court,
Judge Wlnton made a final appeal
which visibly affected the court and all
thoae present. When asked If he had
anything to say In rebuttal, District
Attorney Cleeton replied that he left
the matter entirely with the court.
Before leaving his argument, Judge
Wlnton read a letter from the prose
cuting witness, A. Y. Ross, drawn up
before Judge A. A. Cleveland nnd duly
signed, and addressed to the court, and
which begged for mercy for the defend
ant, Mr. Wlnton suld that If he lived,
he hoped to be able to write upon the
gravestone of Mr. Ross, the epitaph,
"Here lies a good witness and an hon
est man."
In delivering sentence Judge McBrlde
"I have very carefully considered this
case. It Is a cose that appeals very
much to the feelings of thu court, and
those feelings are not diminished by the
very eloquent plea of the counsel In his
behalf, or by the letter read from the
prosecuting witness. The object of pun
ishment Is two fold. The first Is to re
form the offender and to prevent If
possible his committing similar acta in
the future, and the second Is to deter
others from committing like offenses.
The offense In this case was of a grave
character, and only by an accident was
a li ii ma n life not taken, and the more
serious offense, was the violation of the
HkIiIs of mun In Ills own house. If
there Is anything sacred to an Ameri
can i lilzi'ii It Is tlm right to be unmo
lested In his ow n house or plocn of busi
ness. In this case It uppcais that the
ili feiidunt entered Into the bouse and
there ul very Improper and profane

ness and In the hearing of Ills wife.
Such language was used aa would pro
voke almost any man under similar cir
cumstances (l take exactly tlwj course
that Mr. I toss look In this case. He did
nothing more than nine out of ten men
would have done If the same language
had been used towards them under the
same conditions, and the tenth mun
would probably have taken more ex
treme measures."
"On the other hand, the crime is
somewhat tnltlgutei) by the fact that
the defendant was In liquor at the time,
und probably not wholly responsible
for the language he used, and that be
used such language us he would not
lutve employed bad he ben perfectly
soli.-r. I am well wjualnte,! with the
defendant, and knew blm for a lofig
time while I was district attorney here
uud he waa deputy sheriff. He per
formed his duties faithfully and so far
us I am able to say, was a good and
ptlb lent officer, and has that much
placed to his credit. I am disposed to
think that liquor was much to blame
for the act he committed. This should
bear Ita lesson to all others. Those who
are now, perhaps even In this court
room, treading the uin:i pathway In
which this defendant made his mistake.
should stop and turn about pause be
fore they full from a habit of this
kind. The legitimate end of all such
ways results In almost certain disgrace.

Coney Island Buffers.
New York. October 12. A veritable
hurricane has swept iver this section
today, the wind blowing with terrific
forco, reaching at Sandy Hook a ve
locity of Vi miles, an hour laat night.
The tides rose to a height many feet
greater than has been seen for years
and the waves all along the Atlantic
coast sw ept In with a force that carried
everything before them and did dam
age to the amount of many hundreds of
thousands of dollars.
Sandy Hook and points along the
Jersey coast felt the fury of the storm
moit of all. But Coney Island expe
rienced, so far aa haa been learned, the
most direful results. The beaches were
swept clean, pavilions were overturned
and carried seaward, bath houses and
board walks, every thing not far Inland
on the famous Island, waa turned up
and piled high beyondthe coast line, or
carried out to sea. At Brighton Beach

''A 1 said before. I have considered
this cii.se Very rnrssfully. Personally 1
noiil.l like to put ii "01 the defendant
the lightest sentence that the law will
penult, believing that he probably
would not be guilty of repeating Ibis
offense. Hut the object of the luw Is
not wholly for the purpose of prevent
lug the defendant (rum again comnijt-
tliiK the same offense. It has another
object that Is, a warning to other peo
ple lo abstain from offenses of a like
character, nnd the further object of
an assurance to law abiding people that
their Uvea und their property will be
protected. So In this cose, If 1 Inflicted
upon this defendnnt the least penalty
there would be very little In that to
deter others from similar offenses, and
very little assurance to others that
when they were nssaulted In their own
houses and exercised the right Inaliena
ble to all, to put an Intruder out of
their house, the offender would be pun
ished. If at all, only slightly. I do not
feet like Inflicting the lowest punish
ment the law provides In this case. Af
ter very carefully considering all the
facts In this matter, I have concluded to
Intllct such a punishment as In my best
Judgment will deter others from com
mitting like offenses, and will give an
assurance to law abiding people that
their homes will be protected from In
sult nt the hands of all Intruders. In
rendering decision, I take the letter of
the prosecuting witness Into considera
tion: also the recommendation of the
Jury in this case, in which the mercy
f the couit is Invoked, and the plea
made In his behalf by counsel.
'The defendant will stand up.
'It Is the Judgment of this court, con- I
sUlcring all the circumstances of this
case, that you be confined in the state
penitentiary for one year."
In front of the Oriental Hotel and Man
hattan Ik'uch Hotel were laid waste
and the lower portions of the hotels
were flooded. Innumerable small build
ings were simply picked up bodily and
carried away by the wind or waves.
At Far Kockaway the fury of the
gule was indescribable. These houses
which were built on piles on the sand
were washed away and those higher
up which for years have ten out of
the reach of the highest tides, were to
day Hooded. Along the Jersey coast
most of the damage done was to piers
and to breakwaters. Preparations had
been made, aa forewarnlngs of the
storm had been given some days before.
As yet very little damage to shipping
has been reported, for on account of
the w arnlngs, many crafts delayed gall

returned for safe anchorage.

"The election of McKlnley and Hohart

They will receive 270 electoral votes.
Bryan will receive 110, and there are
six states having 6i electoral votes
which are doubtful, but the probablli
