of bribery by a Jury last week after
he had been exonerated by the Now
York stato senate, was sentenced today
to serve not less than four years nor

Supreme Court Justice Seabury, who
presided at StllwcH's trial, pronounced

cution In order that the convloted sen
ator's lawyers might apply for a cer
tificate of reasonable doubt. No trace
of emotion crossed StUwell's face as he
heard his sentence. Justice Seabury'a
words had hardly died away before Btlf
well was ted baok to the Tombs. He
smiled .at friends and sympathizers .who
crowded close to the railing as he was
walked away.
Stilwell, state senator from the Bronx,
was convicted of attempting to obtain
$3,500 from Georgo H. Kendall, president
of the New York Bank Note company,
for favorable consideration by the sen
ate and assembly codes committee of
a bill to mako Illegal discrimination
against bank note companies by stock
exchanges. Kendall refused to pay and
laid his case before Governor Sulzer,
who called on Stilwell to resign. This
Stilwell declined to do. Tho senate in
vestigated the charges, heard Kendall
and other witnesses and exonerated Stil
well by a vote of 28 to 21, after he had
made an emotional plea In his own be
half. Thereafter the oase was placed,
by Governor Sulzer'g Instructions, In the
hands of District Attorney Whitman
Stilwell appeared before tile 'grand Jury
after signing a waiver of immunity.
The convicted senator Is 48 years old
and had long been in politics. His con
viction automatically removed him from

flclent. Judge Kersten ruled that the
proceedings on which the government's
warrant was issued was regular. Miss
