No. 88 THIEF GIVEN TRUXTUN BE ALE RETURNS- UNIVERSITY LECTURES TO BE RES UMED IN SPRING *> * * * * * * * * * * * * * v * * * * A * * * * * A * A A A A FRESNO, Nov. 12.—After spending fifteen months in the local county jail awaiting trial on the charge of grand larceny, Bernardo Esponda yesterday in the Federal Court pleaded guilty to selling a government horse in Kern County. Attorney Crichton made a strong plea in behalf of the prisoner and United States District Attorney Lawlor admitted that the prisoner had probably been punished sufficiently. Judge .Wellborn thereupon inflicted a nominal punishment, ten 'lays in the Jail, and Kspouda departed happy. At the time the horse was stolen a troop of cavalry was crossing the Tehachapl. The train was wrecked and most of the horses escaped. Later all were recaptured save one. the missing horse, It was ascertained, had t been sold by the defendant 'to a man named Weldon. TCsponda's defense was that he bought the horse for $25, not knowing that it was a government animal, although the horse was branded with the government brand. There was no proof to show that Esponda knew the horse had been stolen and the charge was fixed at that of buying stolen government property. The prisoner's case should have come up at the last term of court, but through a misunderstanding It was overlooked and this fact was probably one reason why leniency was granted yesterday. * MINERS PERIL * * * * flon.

It was his opinion 'that the city would also complete the cinder path, although the donor of the park is by no means ready to cense his own benefactions yet.
