Here was a man on the bench who all hut. laughed aloud when ho condemned a murderer to the noose. Hero was a jurist who told Jose Maria Martin that be would not even Bay the words, "May God have mercy on your soul," to the guilty one, for, as he addod, "God couldn't do something that a jury of your peers have refused to do." The words of Judge Kirby Bennett stand as one of the most unique, cynically poetic, Ironical sentences over pronounced iu any court. Down in this New Mexican court, Jose Maria Martin had been found guilty of murder, convicted under a statement of facts showing great brutality, witli no mitigating circumstances, and all over the sum of 50 cents. Tho story o� the sentence of Martin by Judge Benedict was brought to Denver by S. J. McAfee of the UeLue Detective agency. In recent years it has been a common tiling for judges in the Weflt Side court of Denver to weep while sentencing a convicted murderer to the black cap that nover again lifts from eyes that see. Both Judge William D. Wright and Judge Johu A. Perry are men .of kindly natures, who, unablo to restrain their own emotions, have frequently shed toars while condemning men from the West Side bench. But not so In this New Mexican court on the day Joso Maria Martin stood, before the bar of justice. "Jose Maria Martin, stand up," said the court. "Jose Maria Martin, you have been indicted, tried and convicted by a jury of your countrymen, of the crime of murder, and the court is now ftbout to pass upon you the dread sentence of the law. As a usual thing, Jose Maria Martin, it is a painful duty for the judge of a court of justice to pronounce upon a human being the sontence of death. There is something horrible about it, and the mind of the court naturally revolts from the performance of such a duty. "Happily, however, your caso is relieved of all such unpleasant features, and the court takes positive delight In sentencing you to death. "You are a young man, Jose Maria Martin, apparently of good physical constitution and robust health. Ordinarily you might have looked forward to many years of life, and the court has no doubt you have, and had expected to die at a ripe, old ago. But you are about to be cut off in consequence of your own act. Jose Maria Martin, it Is now tho spring time. In a little while the grass will be springing up green in those beautiful valleys and on those broad mesas and mountain sides. Flowers will be blooming, birds will bo singing their sweet enrols, and nature will be putting on her moRt gorgeous and attractive robes, and life will be pleas- ant and man will want to stay. But none of this for you, Joso Maria Martin, Wlion theso things como to glad den the sensos of men you will bo occupying a space of about six by two beneath tho sod, and the greon grusa and those beautiful flowers will be growing above your lowly head. "The sentence of the court is that you be taken from this place to the county jail; that you ho thoro kept, safoly and securoly confined, in the custody of the sheriff, until tho day nppolnted for your execution. (Bo very careful, Mr. Sheriff, that ho lias no opportunity to oBcapo and that you have him at the appointed place at tho appointed time). That you be so kept, Joge Maria Martin, until (Mr. Clerk, on what day of tho month doeB Friday, about two weeks from now, come? March 23?) Very woll, until Friday, March 23, when you will be taken by the shoriff from your placo of confinement, to some safe and convenient spot within tho county and that you there be hanged by the neck until 'you are dead, dead, dead, and the court was about to add, Jose Maria Martin, 'May God liavo mercy on your soul,' but the court will not assume the responsibility of BBking an all wise Providence to do that which a jury of your poors has refused to do. Tho Lord could not liavo mercy on your AT THE EMPRESS There will ho a special Chaplin feature at tho Empress tonight. "A Kentucky Cindrclla" will be the other feature.
