Sentence on Bigelow, Great
Milwaukee Banker.
Pleads Guilty to Ten Counts and Is
Given Maximum Penalty on One
Count Court Sees 2o Pal
, Hating Circumstance.
MILWAUKEE, June 10. Frank O. Big
elow, the defaulting bank president, this
afternoon pleaded guilty to an indictment
of ten counts, returned by the Federal
grand Jury, charging violations of the Na
tional banking law, and teas sentenced
by United States District Judge Quarles
to a concurrent sentence of ten years at
hard labor in the Federal penitentiary at
Fort Leavenworth, Kan.
Shortly after Bigelow entered the court
room Judge Quarles arrived. United States
Attorney Butterfleld at once made an an
nouncement that an Indictment contain
ing ten counts had been returned against
Bigelow, all of which were for violations
of the National banking laws. Bigelow
stated that he wished to waive examina
tion, and plead guilty to all the counts
contained in the indictment.
District Attorney Butterfleld addressed
the court, stating that he did not believe
the law in any case looks toward the met
ing out of vengeance, but that the law
seeks to have Justice done. He stated
that the minimum sentence in this case
was five years and the maximum ten
years, on each count. It seemed to him
that in simple Justice, in vindication of
the law, a maximum sentence on one
count should be administered in this case.
Judge Quarles expressed profound sor
row at the stern duty with which he was
confronted, but a public officer should not
shrink from his plain duty. The case, in
volving the misapplication of funds of a
bank, was a most serious one. The crime
charged was not only a, gross violation
but tended to destroy confidence. The
court could see no palliating circum
stances, and the ends of Justice must be
served by the meting out of the extreme'
penalty. In-order to provido against any
possibility of an error being established
in any of the ten counts, the court said
he would pronounce sentence on each
count. The sentence Imposed wIU be
concurrent and not cumulative. Judgs
Quarles then pronounced that it was the
sentence of the- court that Bigelow shall
Ferve ten years at hard labor In the Fed
eral penitentiary at Leavenworth, Kan.,
sentence to begin at noon today.
Bigelow ex'idently was prepared for the
wor&k as he took the sentence coolly. He
was Immediately turned over to the Uni
ted States Marshal.

The High School boys won the pen
nant In this year's intersoholastlc
baseball series by defeating Hill Mili
tary Academy yesterday afternoon by
a score of 9 to 5. At the end of the
Benson, with but one game yet to play
the suhools tied with 603 per cent
earn, and they were playing evenly.
Yesterday the game belonged to
neither team until tho sixth inning and
even after High School took the lead
of five runs, the intensest kind of ex
citement carried the school boys and
girls into -vigorous support of their
teams. The game was filled with bril
liant playing and bad errors. Goodell
receiving' bolter support from the field
than Clifford.
When the game was ended Canong,
of the High School, was given a silver
cup for the best batter of the team
and Hopkins Jenkins, an instructor at
the High School and graduate manager
of the baseball team, invited the play
ers to a dinner Monday night.
The hard pounding given Clifford and
tne iudilTerent support afforded him in
spots made High School's runs. They
led off in the second wltn two. Oaks,
who had singled, came In on Montag's
double and Montag tallied when Fulton
nnd Brown collided in -an attempt at
Newell's easy fly.
In the third High "School again made
two. Rood, who had singled, came In
thlt time on Goodcll's double, Ganong
ecading in Goodell on his double.
So far Hill had made no runs, but
the boys Umbered up in the last of the
third. Clifford was sent to first, Fulton
shoving him to second. Then Oakes
threw wild after Stanton singled,
bringing them in. Stanton scored on
Staokpole's liner through Ganong and
McCoy brought him In easily with a
three-baggor. The score was then tied.
High School made one in the fourth.
Montag scoring as the result of tnree
singles, one by himself, one by Newell
and the third by Reed. But the big
dump for Hill came In the sixth where
High School piled up four. Magness
singled and was followed by Newell
who made his base on Stanton's error.
Then Reed knocked a three-bagger,
scoring both. Goodell's single scored
Reod and Ganong'a single scored Good
ell. who had stolen a couple of base.
Hill really was down and out then,
but made one more stab at tne game.
McCoy was given his base, stole eec
and and third and came in when Good
ell threw wild to third; But that was
all thre was to It. Goodell held them
lown to one hit in that Inning. Score:

Jury In Case of Mrs. Aggie Myers
Cones to No Verdict la
Eight Honrs.
LIBERTY. Mo.. June 10. After de
liberating from 4:30 o'clock this after
noon until midnight tonight, the jury
In the Aggie Myers murder case failed
to agree on a verdict and retired for
the night. It is said that ten are vot
ing for conviction and two for acquit
tal. The Jury will resume considera
tion of the case at 7 o'clock tomorrow.
Instructing the Jury, Judge Alexander
Informed them that thctr ending must
be for murder in the first degree or
Frank Holroan, who has been ac
quitted of murder in the first degree
ror tne same crime, was tne principal
witness against Mrs. Myers. On May
15 Myers was found dead in his home.
Ills throat had been slashed from ear
o ear and more than 20 wounds were
apparent on his body. News of the
murder was first given at 6 o'clock in
the morning. Mrs. Myers crawled out
on her back porch and gave the alarm
to neighbors. The bedroom and dining-room
of the house were literally
covered -with blood. Mrs. Myers' story
was that two negroes had committed
the crime about 3 o'clock In the morn
ing, and that she lay unconscious in
one of the blood-spattered rooms until
6 o'clock, after having been choked by
one of the negroes.
Holman was arrested for the crime
In Walla Walla, Wash. 'He confessed
that he murdered Myers, alleging that
he did so with the assistance of Myers'
wife. Holman alleged that while en
deavoring to kill Myers, and when he
was getting the worst of the struggle,
the woman came to his rescue by slash
ing her husband's throat with a razor
and stabbing him repeatedly with a
pair of scissors.
According to Holman, the murder was
a prearranged. affair. It being under
stood that he and Mrs. Myers were to
be married after the husband was out
of the way. From the time that Mrs.
Myers' arrest was made until today this
woman, so far as known, has never
shed a tear. She broke down this af
ternoon for the first time when her
counsel. In a dramatic plea to the jury,
outlined the terrible fate that awaited
her, should she be found guilty. Her
emotion and that of her aged mother
was so great that the jury was sent
from the room while order was being
Admiral Dickins Will Attack
Great Harbors.
Joint Exercises or Xavy and Coast
Defense' Artillery on Grand
Scale In Potomac River
and Chesapeake Bay.
FORT MONROE. Va.. June 30. Admiral
Dickins. U. S. N., commanding 16 war
ships, today held his last communication
with shore preparatory to the Joint exer
cises of the Army and Navy. His ships
now constitute a hostile fleet which will
begin operations at 12 o'clock' tomorrow
night against the defenses guarding the
water approaches to Washington and
Baltimore. These defenses are at Fort
Monroe and Old Point Comfort, which
with its range of searchlights and shells
sweep the entrance to the Chesapeake
from Capo Charles to Cape Henry; Forts
Washington and Hunt, guarding the Po
tomac River and the Immediate approach
to the National capital, and Forts Mc
Henry and Howard, defending Baltimore.
All of them are manned and equipped to
their full capacity. In all. SI companies
of Coast Artillery, nearly half of this
branch of the Army, are on guard. Major-General
Wade. U. S. A., commanding
the Department of the Atlantic com
mands the defense. He arrived at Fort
Monroe today from Governor's Island, N.
Y. Weeks haie been spent In special
drills and the preparation of the defense
Is complete.
Purpose of Exercises.
In working out the exercises, the con
ditions of actual warfare are not to be
followed. .Three principal exercises con
stitute the1 work at each defense. These
are artillery practice in daylight, the shins
constituting the targets of the forts;
practice with the searchlights at night
and the operation of the mine fields. In
which the Navy will endeavor to locate
and destroy 'the mines. When the artil
lery practice Is on. the mines are disre
garded. Thin also is the case during the
searchlight work. None of the big guns
of the forts or ships will be fired, ex
cept conMruotivcly. These guns will be
trained on the target and a blank charge
In a one-pounder fired to Indicate the
larger shot.
Test Forts Against Invaders.
While the maneuvers, or, as the of
ficial reports term them, the "Joint exer
cises." will lack to a great degree the
spectacular features of the maneuvers of
past years, they will be of far more im
portance in testing the ability of the
coast defenses to resist any attempt to
Invade this country- No ship will be
ruled out of action, no matter, how many
times It may be constructively hit by
projectiles from the powerful 15-lnch guns.
It Is believed that Admiral Dickins will
sail past the Virginia Capes some time
tonight, put out to a a short distance
and at midnight Sunday return and at
tempt to steal undiscovered past the sharp
eyes on, the lookout for. him in Fortress
Monroe; All tonight the searchlights of
the forts have been sweeping the horizon,
attempting to locate Admiral Dickins
fleet going out to sea.
Test Inefficiency of Searchlights.
While officers have been threatened
with court martial should tbey discuss
with any one the purposes of the maneu
vers, a few have been found that are
willing to admit that the main purpose
of the "exercises" Is to test the efficiency
of the powerful searchlights.
There will be much practice for the
Navy In countermining. The channels of
approach to the several fortresses, so it
was learned today, have finally been
mined with "fake" mines, and these the
Navy Is expected to find and remove. In
order that the clement of rivalry between
the Navy and the Army may be elim
inated, the forces will be limited as much
as possible.. No landing parties will be
allowed f romi the ships and no one but the
umpire will "know for the present how
well either the Army or the Navy per
formed its respective part.

The annual grand -encampment of the
Oregon Indian War Veterans win be held
in Portland. Wednesday, June 14. begin
ning at 3 o'clock In the morning. Tho
sessions will bo held In the Grand Army
an. in ue jAuucey DUiming, and it is ex
pected that many survivors of the Indian
wars of the early days will bo present to
attend tho meeting.
Owing to the death of Commander T. A
Wood during the past year, the conven
tion will be presided over by "Vice-Com
mander H. D. Mount. There are now ap
proximately 600 of the Indian War vet
erans or their widows in the state, and
each year the remnants of the old Oregon
Indian fighters gather to discuss tho busi
ness incident to their organization.
This year there will be but one day of
the convention. Tho meeting will be
called in the morning, and wilt continue
In session until noon, when an adjourn
ment will be taken for luncheon. At the
afternoon session the remainder of the
routine business of the year will be trans
acted, and the latter part of the afternoon
will be occupied In a social time, as Is
the custom of the conventions.
It is understood that the convention of
this year will prepare a memorial to the
next Legislature asking for a further ap
propriation in behalf of tho veterans and
the widows of veterans. It Is claimed
that the amount appropriated Is not suffi
cient to meet all the demands made upon
the sum. and for this reason the conven
tion will ask that further relief be given
to Its members.
Another purpose of the convention of
this year will be to ask Congress to In
crease the service pension of the Indian
Warxeterans from JS to 112 upon the vet
eran; or the widow, becoming TO years of
age. This would-be In keeping with the
rule made by the Government In regard
to the veterans of the Civil War. In the
latter case, whenever the veteran has
reached the age of 70 years and Is receiv
ing a pension for actual service, the
amount Is raised to $12 a month.
One other matter win come before the
convention, the old question of the land
bounty law as affecting Indian War vet
erans. Congress has before been asked
to consider the question, and has been ad
verse to granting the contentions of the
veterans, but they, thinking they are right
In their requests, will make another ef
fort. They will petition that the law be
amended to such an extent that veterans
whose term of service was between 1S35
and 1SC0 will come under the terms of the
law by which they are given a bounty of
ISO acres of land.
Several other matters of Importance, to
the veterans Is scheduled for considera
tion, and It is expected that the conven
tion will be one of the most interesting
and productive of the greatest good to
the attendants than any that has been
held for several years.
