INTERSTATE NEWS-RECORD VOLUME 5. NUMBER 38. IRONWOOD, GQGEBIC COUNTY, MICHIGAN, SATURDAY," JANUARY~17, 1891." HE HECHTOSTOLEN MONEY LEONARD PEBRIN, Sr., FOUND GUILTY AT OSHKOSH. •Another Chapter Enacted in the Celebrated Hurley Bank Robbery Case.— Notes of the Trial. Leonard Perrin, the step-father of Phelps Perrin, who is serving a five years' sentence in the stnto prison at Waupun for complicity in the robbery of the.Iron Exchange hank at Hurley in September, 1889, has been convicted of the crime of receiving 1 stolen money. , Leonard Perrin was one of the pioneers of Ironwood. Ho came here nearly six years ago and with Mr. Binghum, opened a general store on what is now lower Suffolk street, in the vicinity of the Lake 'Shore freight house. Under the name of Bingham & Perrin, the firm carried oh a banking and general merchandise 'business here ;vi|> to eighteen months _ago, when they sold but, Mr. Perrin removing with his family to Now London, Wis. After the conviction of Phelps Perrin and Edwin Baker, the detectives set about to recover tihe bulk of tjie booty taken from the Hurley bank. The numbers of every one of the stolen bank n'Otes had been obtained fronxthe'TJhited States treasury, and every bank was . notified to oorr^ilnicate with Colonel Byrne as soon as they received the money. Hardly a week had elapsed after the conviction of Baker when information was received from an Oshkosh . bank of the depositing in it of the sum of $500, in bills corresponding with the description given, by Leonard Perrin. Only a short lime afterward a sensation was caused by the arrest of the young bank cashier's step-father on a charge of complicity in the robbery. The old man's, arrest caused even greater talk '"' than his son's. Wealthy, respected and aged, everybody sympathized with him. His residence in New London for years gave him the full confidence of the people there. The trial has boon in progress at Oshkosh since December 12, and over eighty witnesses have been examined. The arguments in the cose were concluded at three o'clock Wednesday afternoon, and an hour later the jury retired to. • deliberate oh a verdict. They returned ftt 3:80 Friday morning, and Judge Bur- Hell vea4;this verdict: We'iflnd the defendant guilty in the manner and form as charged in the information, but we find the amount and .value concealed in the said county of 'Winnebago to have been ten silver certificates. For a'moment the defendant was staggered, and a deep pallor settled on his face as visions of the iron bars of a prison cell seemed to flit in his imagination. Tben.remembering- himself, he straightened up and ti'io4 to resume his old look of stolid uncorioern, but it waa a failure. Again he was overcome by a troubled realization of the verdict. His eyes tilled ..with tears, and he shielded his face behind the back of Col. Bouck. The latter gentleman was far from pleased with the verdict, and many an angry scowl was shot by him at the jury. Attorney Barber took the matter more coolly, but ' he waa also terribly disappointed in the yerdiot, which, to tell the truth, is a /surprise to the citizens of Oshkosh, ivho were confident that the jury would either acquit Mr. Perrin or disagree. Mr. Queries was the recipient of many compliment?, as it is considered that it was bin able speech that won victory for the • state. The penalty' provided by statute in Perrin 's case is a- $200 fine, six months imprisonment in the "county jail, or a maximum state prison sentence of not more than three years. The belief is that Ue will get a light sentence, as the charge of the court to the jury was favorable but on the contrary the fact that the other two defsq^ints received the . full -penalty offsets this conclusion, A motion for a new trial xyijl be argued by CoL Bouck this morning. VPAUPIJN, Wis., Jan. 15— Phelps Per• rln was seen in the prison today, and informed of the conviction of his step- ifather. The news was a giaggerer to him, and for awhile he refused to be- "-.'•lleve it.. ''What is the country coming toV" he aaidjna, half-dazed manner.

The first number of tlio Lake Superior Democrat, Tshpoming's now paper published by Finn & Soults, is at hand. II is a seven-column quarto, all printed nt hoine,and editorially and typographically is a credit to its publishers. Here's success to the Lake Superior Democrat! Tho News-Record acknowledges the vecoipt of a handsome lithograph view of the city of Ashland—the compliments of Joe M. Chappie, editor of the Daily Press. The otllco critic has made a careful examination of the picture, and pronounces il "out of sight." The News- Kecord endorses the critic's decision. Arrangements for tho publication of a third newspaper in Iron Monntion have been completed, and rooms over D. A Graham's harness shop on Stoph- enson avenue, have been rented for the purpose. Tho paper will bo printed in the Swedish language, and tho prospective editor Is now in Chicago purchasing his outfit.

Taylor has severed his connection with the Cycle, Crystal Falls' new paper, and Clms.Walson, lute editor .if tlio Munistique Star, succeeds him. Taylor "started'' the Cycle aliout live weeks ago—he furnishing tho experience and two business men of tho Falls, who had an idea there were numberless gold mines in running a newspaper, furnishing the capital. The Cycle is u good paper, but the Diamond Drill is a better one. The Cycle may complete the orb and fill a long felt want—but its proprietors will probably find that the filling of long-felt wauls comes high. That ambitious paper, the Detroit Journal, is unwilling to play second fiddle to any, and 1 its New Year Book for 1891 completely bears out its claims of being liner than any previous work of the kind ever issued. This book contains in its 118 pages a remarkable amount of valuable information, alphabetically arranged, and among other tilings, the complete 1S90 census figures, election statistics in full, etc. It is also profusely and beautifully illustrated with over one hundred "halftone" engravings (from photographs), all made expressly for the book, and is printed on lino paper and bound in a beautiful cover, ft is an immense improvement on its two predecessors and should be found in every home. It is given free to all subscribers of the Detroit Journal, but others can have a copy mailed them by remitting ISO cents in stamps to tho Detroit Journal. An associated press dispatch from Madison on Tuesday says that the ghost of the Gogebic mining craze stalked into the supreme court, when a decision was rendered in one of the many litigations growing out of tho speculation frenzy that marked the dealings in mining stock. The Cogebic Investment company suojl the. -Iron Chief Mining company and recovered a judgment in the circuit court for Milwaukee county for $2,882 borrowed mone}'. .Execution on this judgment was returned unsatisfied. Action was then begun against Herman Nunnemaeher, II. M. Benjamin and Robert Nunneniocher to compel them to pay the judgment, on the ground that they held iu their hands money properly belonging to the corporation, of which they were.stockholders, such money being the difference between the face of stock subscribed by them and the amount paid in to the company's treasury.
