Sammons' Sentence
to Be Given Him on
Monday Next Week
Walter F. Summons, recently convicted
In federal court on the eluirKe of robbing
the Kearney postofflce of $".I00, has had
sentence postponed until Monday morn
ins at 10 o'clock. 1I was to have been
sentenced Thursday morning, but the
serious Illness of the wife of Hanker Gar
rison of Kearney, who was to liavo be
come bondsman on Sammons' appeal,
prevented Mr. Garrison from appearing
In court to eiitn the bond. The maximum
penalty for the crime Is a prison term
not exceeding five years, or a fine not
exceeding $-,001, or both.
Sammons Is a lieutenant colonel In the
Nebraska National Guard, and was
sheriff of Buffalo county for three terms.
The stolen money has never been recov
ered. The convicted man was denied a
new trial last week.
Delbert Smith, who confessed to having
given his postofflce keys and safe com
binations to Sammons, was to have bean
urralpncd this morning on a charge of
conspiracy to rob a postofflce, after Mam
mons' sentence. However, bis attorney,
X. J. McDonald of Kearney, will make
bis argument In the matter Friday morn
ing, but Smith w ill not be arraigned until
after the Sammons case Is entirely dis- j
posed of and Is out of the jurisdiction;
of the federal district court.
It la understood that Smith will plead
guilty and throw himself on the mercy
of the couit. '
