SMUEL SEELY SENTENCED
Long Term for the Shoe and Leather
EIGHT YEARS IX THE PRISON
After Sccly Hud Given tho Bank Directors
All Information Possible About Ills
. Transactions Tbcy Refused to
Intercede in His Behalf.
)3y tho United Press. ,
New York, Dec. 24. Samuel C. Secly,
the defaulting bookkeeper of the Na
tional Shoe and Leather bank, was to
day sentenced by Judge Benedict, of
the United States circuit court, to eight
years in the Kings county penitentiary.
When Seely wus-called to the bar, the
court room was crowded with curious
spectators. Seely responded quickly to
the call of his name and walked to the
Ibar with a firm step, but he looked pale,
dejected and crestfallen, in fact, almost
dazed. His wife's uncle, Mllford F.
Hallenbeck, stood with him in court.
(Lawyer Frank V. Angel interceded for
hia client and said that he thought the
encis of justice would be met by the
minimum punishment. He said Seely
(had told him openly that he was guilty
ond deserved punishment. He said
6eely had over COO accounts tinder his
care. His first mistake was an error.
He should have gone to the president
of the bank about It, but, instead, he
went to Baker, a man of will power
and decision, who easily influenced
6eely. He had not placed the govern
ment to any expense of trouble of a
trial. He also asked that the sentence
should be executed in the Kings county
Eight Yeare In Penitentiary.
Judge Benedict then i eiteneed Seely
to eight years in the Kings county
Seely was at once removed from the
court room and token back to Ludlow
The maximum punishment for his
crime under the statute is ten years Im
prisonment and the minimum live years.
With the allowance for good conduct
the actual time Seely will have to serve
will be rabout jflve years and four
In passing sentence Judge Benedict
eald: "The law must protect the banki
and It Js .intended to deter others from
committing similar crimes."
Just before Seely was called to the
bar President Crane, of the Shoe and
Leather bank. Vice-President Pease
and Director Beach ent'-red the court
room and took seaits iln the rear of the
Mr. Pease and Mr. Beach are the twj
directors who had an Interview with
Seely In the marshal's office this morn
ing and refused to intercede with the
Judge in his behalf after Seely had told
them all he could about the bank ac
counts and how to trace Baker's miss
After Seely was taken from the court
room back to the marshal's office to get
the commitment papers, he said to
Deputy Marshal McAviney, who had
lilm in charge: "I am glad It Is over.
I would rather serve twenty years in
state prison than suffer as I have done
during the past ten years. The past
ten years have been terrible to me."

Now, the thing that oftenest is wrong

that it may be coupled to any of the

couple by lever from the top or side of
the car; It will ouple to any of the
usual fmrm of couplers; the bars will
become disengaged from the Jaws if
turned at right angles, and for this
reason if one car in a train upsets it
will become disconnected from the oth
er oars, and thus prevent ono car from
drawing others down a bank or off a
bridge; It will couple to a car in which
the couplers nre either higher or lower
It Is' provided with double connecting
bars, so If one breaks the other may

Philadelphia Record, editorially
"With the withdrawal of George D,
MoCreary from the so-called Lehigh
Valley Stockholders' committee the bot
tom may be said to have dropped out of
the movement for a chiaingo In the man
agement of that company. Whatever
basis 'there was for the opposition was
removed by the election as directors o
such representative men who are all
largely Interested In the welfare of the
Lehigh Valley as Joseph Wharton
Thomas McKean and George H. Mey
ers, and Mr. MoCreary's action now de
prives the disgruntled committee of the
only element of strength that still re
mained to It. The re-election of Presl
dent E. P. Wilbur, which may be re
garded as assured by the collapse of
this hostile movement, Is bo obviously
demanded by the best Interests of the
oompany that there should never be
any doubt about It. Familiar with the
history of the company from its lncep
tlon, he has given to Its management
the boat years of his life, and it Is
largely to his efforts that Its high credit,
has been so long maintained. President
Wilbur cainnot be held responsible for
that stagnation In the coal trade which
followed the breaking down of tht great
Reading combination, and one of whose
most marked results has been a steady
fall In the price of coal, followed by a
Buspemilon of dividends. This condl
lion of attain bus seriously affected all
the coal roads, but none la in a position
to recover more quickly from It than
the Lehigh Valley, whose wise manage
ment lias not permitted Its facilities
and equipment to suffer from tne busl
nans depression through which the en
tire country haa been passing. With
the resumption by trade of its normal
conditions, the Lehigh Valley will
doubtless share 1n the returning wave
of prosperity, and the policy of Presi
dent Wilbur and his associates will be
Justified. It would certainly be folly
for the stockholders to think of making
change now, and of entrusting the
management of a company which has
so long enjoyed such a high financial
reputation to the hands of those Ignor
ant of Its affairs and inexperienced In
tho dlreoMon of a great railroad."
