DOTLESTOWX, Pa., May trial of Henry Shellenberjrer, the defaulting lawyer, took place Thursday. There were seventeen billt of indict- ment against the prisoner, covering the crimes of forgery and embezzlement The ordeal of entering the court room proved too much for the once popular and talented lawyer, who, as District Attorney of Bucks County had made his brilliant reoutation at tbe bar of thig very court As he entered the door he shrank from the (jaze of his former friends and kept his head bowed. Con- gressman Robert Yardley, who came from Washington to assist in hisdefense, sat at one of the tables. As the bills of indictment were read loud groans and sobs came from Shellenberfcer. His counsel enterep a plea of guilty in each case. Shellenberger acted at times like a madman. He opened his handkerchief and threw it over his head, rubbing hii head and face with it, and nervously shook the railing of the dock with hij hand and foot. Eventually he loaned his head forward on the rail and buried it in his arms, rocking himself on the seat line a person suffering from acute pain. At one time Shellenberper groaned sc loud and sobbed with such anguish thai the judsre told the District Attorney t4 haston his work and get it over. Aftei all the indictments were read and aplei of guilty Has entered in each case, wit- nesses were called to show the charac ter and extent of Shellenberger's ras- calities. witnesses testified, and as the testimony was brought out bearing upon the most aggravated and unpardonable cases of rascality and de- ceit, Shellenberger rocked himself vio lently in the docket, tossed his head. moved his hands about like a wild man and cried aloud. Judge Harmon Yerkes, an old-time personal acquaintance and a professional and political associate ol the prisoner for many years, pronounced the sentence of the court. It was antici- pated that he would give Shellenberget a heavy sentence, but nothing like what, he gave him was looked for. Yerkes drew himself up and ad- dressed the prisoner In a low husk} voice in which there seemed a tremor ol emotion. Shellenberger never raised his head, but went on groaning and weeping violently. Finally the words dropped from the judge's lips: "Twenty- two years of solitary confinement with hard labor." Shellenberger gave a groan of anguish and almost sank to the floor. The scene caused quite a commotion. The blow seemed to stun the prisoner. It was necessary to carry him from tho court room. The sentence was discussed by the farmers and the people in Doylestown on every side. Nothing like it was ever heard in Bucks County. pity seemed to have been awakened in some bjr tho prisoner's exhibition of in the court room, the general of 'armors, who reflected upon what Shellenberg-er had been doinjr for years, seemed to think that it was just.
