OF JUDGE CALKINS
In Uiu cno of the stntu vs. II C.
Kentncr, cliftrgccl xvllh ombezrlcinont
JudKO Cnlklns, nt tho conclusion or
Ihci tiUt' evidence Instrurtutt tho
Jury lo return a cnllct ncqulttlns
tho defcnilftii'., for soxornl renponrf,
principally upon M n prntiml of n
lnck of any cr'mlnnl tntout upon tho
part of the dofonrt.xnt.
Tho court went xeiv fully Into tho
ilotnll of tho evidence. Ho sixlil that
ho would not, under nny clrcnin
tnmi, tnkr. a enso away from tho
Jury If therd was any evidence which
xxonld sustain a conviction; that the
chnrRO of ombvzzloincnt l a rhArgo
of Inrrony, (hat this necessarily In
volves a criminal Intent. Such a
criminal Intent 1b ordinarily shown
by false records, or some other evi
dence tending to show a criminal In
tent to steal. Ho said ho was satis
fied from watchltiR thci evidence
closely that the state had Introduced
over? hit Of evidence, that was avail
able. That ho had allowed much
evidence to go in In favor of the
stato, which might uot otherwise
havo been admitted, on tho theory
thnt (hero might develop In the evi
dence somo place, something to show
n wrongful intent, but that In this
caso whatever moneys of the firm
were used, were by the bookkeepers
put on tho books nt the time and
open to inspection by tho directors
Directors llso Illumed
It alio appeared that Kentncr had
submitted regularly Inventories,
showing the assets, liabilities,' etc,
of tho company, and these had been
approved by the board of directors
from timo to time. Tho court said
that much of tho money that had
bcon used and charged to Sir. Kent
ner personally was for bills paid
when Mr. Kontner was not present,
but under a general custom that pre
vailed In tho store. Ho said that
under tho law the directors were as
much bound to know tho condition
of riffalrs as was Mr. KcntnCr, and
thnt thcro appeared to bo no ele
ments of crime Involves m anything
He complimented tho stato uion a
full and fair presentation of tho mat
ter. It appeared In tho trial that ti
all times Mr. Kentner owned all of
tho stock of tho company, excepting
less than a fifth, so that every timo
a dollar of tho firm's money went out
to Kentner personally eighty cen's
of it was his.
, Jury Congratulates
It also appeared that ho had put
Into tho firm somo $32,000 in money;
also that during this period charged
Mr. Kentner had borrowed from Mar
shall Field 'and company, In .Feb
ruary, 1012, $15,000 which tho com
pany got. This wag loaned on tho
company note, but Marshall Floll
and company required the personal
endorsement of Mr. Kentner, which
Mr. Kentner gave, and put up consid
erable of his own stocka s collateral
security. Others of tho directors
put up some of their stock as col
lateral security. There were only
four stockholders of the company.
Mr. Kentner with 1C0 shares, Mr.
Merrick with 20 shares, Mr. Emer
Ick with 20 shares, and Walter Kent
ncr with ten shares, so that It there
was any loss on account of Mr. Kent
nor's over-draft tho loss was princi
pally hla own.
Tho Jury showered Mr. Kentner
with congratulations, and without ex
ception stated that their verdict
would havo been on acquittal.
