Ni:w Yonic, Jim. (). Stokes was hi
Oyer und Terminer this morning to
receive sentence. Trcmalnc, hi coun
sel, made an address In relation to n
bill of exceptions to the Judge's rul
ings, which he proposed to oiler. The
prisoner was then asked what he had
to say why sentence of death should
not liq passed. .Stokes thereupon Mild
that lib had not violated itho law In
tentionally, that the testimony upon
winch no was convicted was manu
factured and perjured. Judge Hoard
man then, in a very feeling address, i
in which ho alluded to the prisoner's '
youth and social surroundings, sen
tenced tlio prisoner to be li sniped on
Friday, tho 2Sth day of February,
being the shortest time that could be
legally allowed it convicted man.
Stokes' counsel were in consultation
last evening. Thev weie greatly sur
prised at the verdict, nnd expressed
their purpose of applying at once forir
stay of proceedings, and ultimately, If
possible, to secure another trial. ,
