Many of the members and sessional officials come from smaller places and "let loose" in a social and financial way when they come to Ottawa. They buy their clothes here, they purchase new fur- niture for their home, and generally get through with-their- indemnity and perhaps part of their: private Income.

The jury having announced a ver diet of guilty, Judge Thornton L. Mas sie sentenced the prisoners to one year at hard labor. With the last word of the sentence, a crash of lire arms broke from the spectators' benches. Floyd Allen, the prisoner, ft'ith a smoking revolver in his hand, eaped from the prisoners' dock and oined tlie rush of the gang toward the door. When the court room was cleared .he body of Judge Jlassie, riddled with luilets, was found lying over his desk; Commonwealth. Attorney Wm. 'M. Foster and Sheriff L. F. Webb lay lead on the lloor; Augustus Fowler a PANIC STRICKEN PEOPLE IX PLIGHT juror, and' Elizabeth' Byres, a spectat- or, were bleeding from wounds which proved fatal the next day: and Dexter Goad, clerk of tlie court, lay shot through the neck. Goad was 'one of the principal witnesses' for the state at the conviction of the prisoners. When the court room was examined later It found that more than L'OO shots had been fired. Twenty-seven I shots took .effect upon those killed or' wounded. An army of detectives and news- paper correspondents" soon were scouring the muddy roads of the mountains in search for the prisoners.
