Judge Alonzo T, Searle gave a
Christmas present, Monday, In the
shape of a release from the County

Hartman impressed the Court and
every one who saw him as being an
offender out of the ordinary run.
W'hen he pleaded dissipation as an
excuse for his actions, and refused
to reveal the name of his father who
is a well-to-do New Yorker, choos
ing jail rather than disgrace the
memory of his father, the Judge be
lleve.d his story, and made his sent
ence as light as possible.
Close confinement has been too
much for '.Hartman, and he was per
mitted larger liberty than Is usual
ly accorded prisoners.
District Attorney Simons agreed
most heartily to recommending his
discharge at this time. I thlnK,"
ho said, "he has been a model pris
oner. His health Is very poor. I
think the ends of Justice will be
maintained by discharging him at

Was, wearing a gray sweater as he
did, and with several days growth
of beard on his face, Hartman looked

Certain preliminaries had to be
arranged, and Hartman was taken
back to Jail. When he was brought
back to Court In the afternoon Mr.
Simons said he 'had authorized the
Commissioners to discharge him,

ence so that It terminated .Monday,
and discharged the prisoner. Lator
Hartman signed a note for ?37.37.
When seen by a Citizen man Hart
man said, speaking of his discharge:
"It came too suddenly for me. I
didn't expect to get out until Janu

keeping books and doing clerical
work for the Sheriff for the past two

it again. It's enough for me."

, " Now, Mr. Bennett, this Is the
first case that has come before the
present Burgess, otherwise we might
be inclined to be moro severe. I
believe sovore penalties are not al
ways conducive to the best and sur
est methods of reform, so I am In

BROKE HIS PAROLE OF THREE
YEARS' STANDING COURT DE
TERMINES TO MAKE PAROLED
PRISONEHS KEEP THEIR OB
LIGATIONS. "Now A. F. Schlmmell is in Jail

Simons informed Judge A. T. Searlo
at argument court, Monday morn
ing. " What's ho been doing," asked
"It's been reported to me 'he was
up to his ho'mo drunk and disorder
ly," answered (Mr. Simons. "I
thought perhaps it would bo a good
time to bring him into court and
sentence him on the charge he's
been paroled so often."
Tho Court thought so too, and
forthwith ordered Deputy Sheriff F.
'H. Crago to bring him into Court
for sentence. "If they are put on
parole," remarked tho Judge," they
must understand It means some
thing." District Attorney Simons stated
further that Schlmmell had been pa
roled December 12, 1910, in the
care of Sheriff M. Lee Braman and
Prof. H. A. Oday, as probation offi
cers. The conditions were that he
was to abstain from tho uso of in
toxicating liquors as a beverage, to
behave himself before his family,
and Teport to the probation officers
the first Monday of each month.
" Now, Mr. Schlmmell," said the
Court addressing the prisoner, " I
understand you were intoxicated last
night and acting badly. You were
paroled. We want those on parole
to understand It means something.
We're going to get rid of this matter
once for all."
"How did you find him, Sheriff?"
asked the Court.
"Well," answered Sheriff Bra
man, "I found him -under the influ
ence of liquor quite bad. He had a
bottle in his possession. He was 1n
his own house. Oday and I went
over after him."
" I got it Saturday night, a half
pint," spoke up Schlmmell.
" Where did you get your whis
key?" inquired the district attorney.
"I got It Saturday night," answer
ed tho prisoner, "at Paul Fives'. I
was sick In. bed all day."
' "Mr.-Schlmmell,'' said the Court,
" we shall send you to the county
jail "so that this matter may be set
tled up. You came before Juclge
Purdy arid he paroled you, and we
did likewise. At each time it Was
stipulated that you should refrain
from intoxicating liquor. - Now tho
sentence is that you pay the costs of
prosecution; a fine of $fl; and bo
committed to tho county jail for six
months, 'from this date."
