MITCHELL la "SEHTEHOED
Six Months In Prison and One Thous
and Dollar Fine.
John H. Mitchell, senior Sena
tor of Oregon, who was convicted
in l he federal court at Portland
of using his office for personal
gain, has been sentenced by U.
S. Circuit Judue Dellaven. The
sentence pronounced by Judge
Dellaven was "that the defend
ant be imprisoned for the term
of six months in the county jail
of Multnomah county, in this
city, and pay a fine In the sum
of 1000." In addition to the
penalty fixed by the court, the
conviction of Senator .Miicnen
forever bars him from holding
any office of trust or position of
honor and profit within the
United State3. Senator Mitch
ell, through his counsel, gave
notice ofmppeal, and the case
will be carried to the United
States Supreme Court- The ap
peal acts as a stay of Judgment,
but should the Supreme Court
sustain the decision of the lower
court, Senator Mitchell will have
io paV the penalty. Mean
while, he will not resume his
seat in the United States Senate.
Senator Mitchell is the second
United Senator to be convicted
of using his public office for pri
vate gain. Senator Burton of
Kansas was convicted in April,
1004, of having used his office
for private gain, and was sen
tenced to serve six months in
jail and pay a fine of $2500.
Ho appealed the vase which
was remanded for a new trial.

Northwest. The consideration
