EMMA GOLDMAN GIVEN 2 YEARS
Also Draws $10,000 Fine For Opposing Draft; Berkman Gets Same Sentence
NEW YORK, July 10—Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman, the celebrated anarchists, were found guilty of conspiracy to obstruct the operation of the selective draft law by a jury in the United States court last night and sentenced to two years in a federal penitentiary and fine of $10,000 each.
The jury deliberated only 40 minutes.
The two anarchists had made their own defense, likening their cases to the persecution of Jesus. The speed with which the jury returned a verdict of guilty was a surprise to both.
Judge Mayer lost no time in pronouncing sentence, and today the two draft foes were well on their way to prison. Berkman was sent to the Atlanta penitentiary and Miss Goldman to Jefferson City, Mo.
