Maximum Penalty 10 Year
.; But Jury Adds Word of
Pea for Leniency :
Case Will be Appealed to
Territorial Court and .
Higher if Needed
HONOLULU. - April 29 '(AP)
Twelve men of varied racial ori
gin tonight eonricted of mis .
slaughter the four persons accused m
of lynching Joseph Kahahawal fer
vengeance. The Jury recommend
ed Jenleney.
The. defendants. Lieutenant
Thomas H. Massie; his mother-la-law,
Mrs. Granville Forteseue, aad
two navy enlisted men, Albert O.
Jones and E. J. Lord, received that
vendict with varying reactions.
The verdict left various possi
bilities for the length and manner
ot punishment. Tho maxim sat
penalty Is ten years imprisonment.
The lightest sentence possible)
would be a ten-year suspended
sentence for each. But the court
can use discretion between these
extremes. The governor ot tho
territory has the power to par
don any or all the defendants.
Mrs. Massie Sobs
As Verdict Heard
A sob broke the 'tense slleace
when Mrs. Thalia Massie, wife of
the naval officer and victim of a
criminal attack In which Kahaha
wal allegedly confessed partaking,
heard the verdict which may meam
ten years imprisonment for her
husband, the admitted killer; her
aristocratic mother, and the two
navy "gobs."
Montgomery Winn of the de
fense gave notice of sppeal. Judge
Davis announced the defendants
would be placed la custody of Cap
taln Ward Wort man, a naval offi
cer, and that sentence would be
pronounced a week from today.
The climax of the long-dram.
charged case was over quickly, re
quiring only about ten mlnutee.
As the defendant walked oat.
Mrs. Massie still was sobbJaav
Massie's lips were white and sot.
Mrs. Fortescue's countenance wae
blanched but her eyes were dry
and there was something of an air
or derianco in her manner. Lord
and Jones smiled at friends who
spoke to them.
Other women in the courtroom
had wet eyes.
Clarence narrow, nraf ilafMu
attorney whd came out of retire
ment to plead the cause of the.
four accused, did not arise aad
took no part In any of the final
Darrow's associate. Charles g.
Leisure, said that on the appeal
the case would go to the territor
ial court and then to the ninth dis
trict United States elrcult court et
appeal In California, if necessary.
Tans did the aged defenders'
double plea of Insanity on tho part
of Massie and his reference to the
unwritten law phases of the case
come to naught.
And likewise came victory for
