Court Seene When Her Hnu Was Hen
teiicetl'to be Huns;.
Paris, Tex , June 21. One of the
most dramatic scenes ever enacted
was witnessed here in the Federal
courtroom to-day. While Judge
Bryant was passing sentence upon
John Stevenson, who had been con
victed of the murder! of Deputy
Marshal Joe Gann, at Paul's Valley,
in August, 1893, the courtroom was
densely packed with people, all
craning their necks tojsee and hear.
Ttevenson was asked if he had
anything to say why the sentenc3 of
he law should not be pronounced
upon him, He arose and walked
within a few feet of the Judge's
stand and talkad for about 30 min
utes. He insisted that he had not
had a lair trial and reviewed the
case at length. . He told of his
former career, and declared that he
had lived an honest lift and, while
he had his faults, had never wronged
any parson. mere was so mucn
earnestness and pathos in his man
ner that every heart was moved to
pity and tears glistening in t eyery
eye when he bad concluded. Judge
Bryant said that he was not actuated
by any malice, and that he had no
choice in the matter, but was only
performing a disagreeable ditty.
"The sentence, said the court,
that the Marshal of the Eastern
District of Texas is directed to take
you to the Paris jail, and keep you
safely there until Friday, September
13, when, between the hours of 10
a. m. and 4 p. m.
At this point a piercing cry rang
through the room. Stevenson's
mother who sat a few feet back of
him, rose to her feet and sbriiked :
"Oh, my God I How can I bear
that after praying over my boy ever
since be was a baby 1"
Stevenson turned and motioned to
his mother to ait down" anci, in a
111 fil i i pi
voice choking with emotion, bade
her be quiet. Marshal Williams
hurried to her side and managed to
calm her with words of sympathy.
Suppressed sobj were heard from
many spectators. After a moment's
silence Stevenson walked up to the
Judge's stand ard leaned against ic,
when Judge Bryant finished in a
lewer tone of yoice, saying :
"He shall hang you by the neck
until you are dead,"
When Stevenson sat down his
mother clasped him in her arms as
if he were a babe, crying and calling
him endearing names. His attors
neys gave notice of appeal.
C3on to About Truck Farming.
Among the many who left for
Wilmington was a party from No. 5
township, composed of Messrs. R J
Cook, R F Ciine, John Cline and
John Bran tly, who go for the ex
press purpose of inspecting the
truck farms near that city, with a
view to going into that business ir
this county next year. The idea is
a good one, and The Standard
hopes that they will be greatly ben
efitted and encouraged by their trip.
