If this is true, and the police have every reason to believe it is, the basket found on the scene' of the murder is the same. EWfe said he was oositive that it was. . He stated that on the morning of the finding of the body bis friend, Paul Price, told him Aunt Sarah Baker' little basket was beside the body, and soon afterward Billy" Byrnes, who works for Baker, told him he knew . the basket's owner, but did not 4hink they bad anything to do with'the murder.

' ' ' A " The Klngr Iloodler Sentenced ToMlay-$3,000 Fine. New York, July M.-j-Jacob Sharp woke; about nine, o'clock this morning. .He had passed a very restless night in bis handsomely f unused parlor in Ludlow Street Jail. Yesterday's needless trip to court has about finished the work that the weeks confinement has failed to da It has left Sharp a very weak and feeble man. He stands virtually on the edge of the grave, and his friends and doctors say that it is probably but a question of days when the end will come. Shortly after eleven o'clock Under Sheriff Sexton and Deputy Sheriff Curran arrived at the jail in the carriage in which Sharp was to be conveyed to the court house. As soon as they entered Warren Keating's office Sharp was summoned. He had to be fairly carried from his room to the large iron barred door leading out to Ludlow street. The street in front of the jail was crowded with a motley and curious gathering of the denizens of the neighborhood. It was only by main strength that a path was cleared ftvm the jail door to the coach. After Mrs. Sharp, who followed close behind, was seated in the vehicle, Under Sheriff Sexton and Warden Keating- jumped in also and hurriedly slammed the door to, In the meantime Deputy Sheriff Curran had taken a seat beside the driver, who gave the horse the whip and tbey dashed around the corner of Crand street and thence on their way to the new Court House in City Hall Park. . Oh their arrival there Sharp was hurried into the building and bad to be carried. Judge Barrett went down to the Court House at about half -past eleven, and after convening court, Sharp was called op for sen. tence. The sentence imposed was four years imprisonment, and o,000 fine. Sharp's counsel at once made a motion for a stay of judgment, but Judge -Barrett promptly refuseait. Much sympathy is felt for the aged boodler, and the verdict is rather more severe than was anticipated. Sharp accepted the sentence with the best grace possible, but paled very perceptibly when sentence was pronounced. It is thought that he will not long survive the shock. His wife is greatly distressed.'" v.",.: 1 A. IServr President. New York, July 14. Jarvis M.
