When Thurlow W. Parker asked Cir
cuit Judge Fraser to give him the maxi
mum penalty for forgery In Court yes-
. terday morning he was well aware that
the granting of . the ' request meant he
would spend 20 , years within prison
walls. He learned the maximum before
appearing for sentence. Bcrangest of all,
his request was in large measure due
to the knowledge that, hla father had
, expressed the desire since his conviction
that he "be given 20 years."
. Nevertheless the boy, for he la only
21 years of age, is now glad that Judge
Fraser, imposed a sentence of only five
years, Ua spoke feelingly of his sad
predicament and the effect on his fam
ily, this morning.. He declares that
his intention la to Jead the life ; of an'
honest man when his term In the pent
tentlary expires and says he hopes other
young men will profit by the fearful con
sequences, of hla errors. i
."I guess a good many people thought
I yes making a 'grandstand play in
court," he asserted. ' "I didn't- I was
depressed, and. felt that I have caused
my folks enough anguish. The longer
I was In, the less trouble I would give
them, was my idea. Last night I wrote
mother and tried to cheer her all 1
could, wiring her first that a letter was
on the way.
"My first offense was committed at
Tacomav I lost - at , gambling and then
forged a check on a bank with the in
tentiop of putting the money, in before
the error was learned. When . I was
arrested this time I made up my mind
never to do wrong again. Judge Fraser
is a good man, and I feel in my heart
he has made one of me, though I am
doomed to wear, a felon's, stripes."

F. B. Barns, the real estate and .in

rowed, has been heard from through a
draft drawn In San Francisco on a local
bank here. It now develops that the
amount Barns gathered in will amount
to over $3,000. . Most of this, however,
waa borrowed money. Several lodges
suffer, losses aggregating over $600, but
this, it Is, stated, is secured by bonds
and the losses will be made good.
It is learned that on last Tuesday Mr.

on the bank here. Barns had no funds

on Insular affairs today, expressed an
opinion on the Patterson bill to abolish
slavery in the Philippines and to ab
rogate the treaty made with the Sultan
of Sulu by General Bates. Taft said
that by constitution, as well as law,

question of .enforcing Instead of mak

of congress, however, toward the abro

that it might cease. Taf fa suggestion
