Harry Starr's Money.- In the United States court this morning Judge Parker rendered his decision in the case of People's Bank vs. Henry Starr. At the time of the arrest of Starr and Wilson in Colorado City, last July, Starr had in his possession $1,990 in new bank bills and gold. This money was expressed here to Marshal Cramp to await the order of the court. The bills answered the description of those stolen by Starr and his band from the bank on the afternoon of June 5, 1893. As soon as the money arrived here it was attached by the Peoples Bank of Bentonville, Jo Johnson appearing as attorney for the bank. The bills corresponded in number to those stolen from the bank and the case was so plain on behalf of the plaintiff that Starr never made any defense. Several intervenors, petitions were filed and to pass upon these was the question that required Judge Parker's closest attention. Judge Parker rendered his decision in favor of the bank for the money less the expenses of the trial to recover the money. These items were $5.60 to Col. Crump for express charges on the money from Colorado City; $41 to Gen Wheeler, clerk's fees; $15 to G E Rider for his services as stenographer; $103 to the People's Bank for expenses of gathering testimony, and $150 to Jo Johnson for services as attorney in bring the proceedings.
This left $1,570.40 for the bank. L C Dana and the policemen, who made the arrest and William Feneratine who gave the officers information upon which the arrest was made also filed interventions. By the terms of the reward offer by the bank, the officers arresting the robbers were to receive one half the money recovered and Judge Parker ordered the $1570.40 divided equally between the bank and Dana, and ordered that $100 of the share given to Dana, should be paid to the executors of William Feneratine.
As the bank had agreed to pay Henry Starr $450, if his attorneys would not contest the case, the bank will recover little less than $350. The bank's attorney contended that this sum should be deducted as expenses, but judge Parker thought it was a private agreement and that he had no right to pass upon it as Starr's attorney did not file their claim.
This settles the last of the Starr cases, except Starr's appeal to the supreme court of the United States on his conviction for murder, the argument of which is set for March 5.
The case, which was decided this morning grew out of the robbery of the People's Bank of Bentonville by the Starr gang. The robbers secured for than $11,000, but the found upon Starr was all that the bank has been able to trace. - News Record
