YDA ADDIS SENTENCED. Declares She Wai Longr Ago United in Marriage With Attorney Jackson. I SANTA BARBARA. Yda Addis had an eventful day of it. She was sentenced sentenced Monday morning on the libel suit, and in the afternoon she publicly added the name of Jackson, the man she tried to murder, to that of Storke. She must now be called Storke-Jack-son, Storke-Jack-son, Storke-Jack-son, Storke-Jack-son, Storke-Jack-son, with a hyphen between the two names. The scene at the opening of the Su perior Court was weird and uncanny. Yda Addis appeared almost like a specter specter when she entered tho crowded court-room. court-room. court-room. An immense audience awaited her coming. Her exploit at Jackson's room added strength to the interest that would otherwise have sur rounded her sentence. She was dress- dress- has the Commissioners office. the that than the ap-near noti- ed in black, but with a white kerchief some about her neck. Her face wus pale as marble and absolutely without color. Her feet did not seem to move. She glided slowly to her seat and sat down. She glanced neither to the right nor to the left. Her attorneys took seats be- be- Mde her. She answered C. F. Carriers tow coldly, but neither she nor Boyce spoke. Boyce opened the proceedings with a motion lor a new trial. But he made no argument. Ho said that the conduct conduct of the defendant had been such as to preclv.de his taking further steps in the matter. Yda Addis moed not a muscle, though this move was a 'surprise. Judge Oster read the indictment, going going over the venomous Martha Case letter, upon which the true bill was found. Yda Addis then arose and spoke in her own behalf and said that she had fully expected to produce new evidence in the shape of affidavits tending to show that F. N. Guiterrez had written anonymous letters, and that he had practically confessed to the deed. These her attorneys should have procured. Boyce, however, said he hud seen no such papers, and thought none could be procured. As to 1 Joyce's desertion of her at the threshold off the jail, Yda Addis said to the court that Boyce was very un- un- fied more but must in a type-written failure therein. was mob, and in An cYd of T1.1S- ntuf ne Iia nnrl iw.r vn nfinrfi hpr vrr How-1 How-1 sion of the affair. . . ... Judge Oster then reviewed hastily the case and said that the penalty af-nf af-nf be fixed was one year of imprisonment or a $5,000 fine. To fix a fine, he said, would be nonsense, and the year he believed believed to be an inadequate punishment. Nevertheless he imposed the year's imprisonment, imprisonment, with bail, pending appeal, at $1,000. The condemned woman arose and (UiUVt'U siuwiy iiuui uiu lui'in, uic iicv- iicv- see, "" j I her.

The examination on this charge will take place Thursday, with bail fixed at $5,000. In the evening the woman wtis seen in the County Jail. She was cheerful and perfectly calm, and said: "My mind has never been clearer than it is now; than it has been today. It is as clear as a bell. I am destitute, 1 have never before fallen so low, yet I feel myself above all this. Even here I can find work to 'do for the uplifting of humanity."
