New DliDFonp, Mass,, June 31. The
concluding portion of District Attorney
Knowlton's argument In the llnrden rn.fr
d.r trial was a brilliant arraignment of
tb. prisoner, whose bitter hatred of the
stepmother he described as suftlclent mo
tiv. for the first crime. Th. second mur-
der became necessary In order to hide the
staying of her stepmother, Mr, Know! ton
oonoluded with a critical review of the
After a recess the defendant was given
an opportunity to speak. She said: "lam
Innocent, but I will leave my case In your
hands and with my counsel."
Justice Dewey, In charging the Jury,
stated the presumption, which was In
creased by the defendant's character, and
aid that guilt must lie proved to a moral
eertalnty to warrant a conviction.
The Justice concluded his charge to the
Jury at 8:15, and they at once retired, while
a breathless silence fell over the orowded
court room, which was unbroken until the
return of the twelve men who held Lizzie
Borden't life In their hands.
The Jurors filed Into their seats at 4:80,
and were polled. Miss Bordeu was asked
to stand up, ajjd the foreman was asked to
return the verdict, upon, whloh he an
nounced 'not guilty."
After the verdict had been received the
district attorney moved that the other
cases against Miss Borden be nolle prosit! .
and the order of the court was to that ef
fect. Justice Mason then gracefully thanked
the Jurors In appreciation of their work and
faithful service. The jury was then dis
missed and court was adjourned until
Monday next, when the regular criminal
session will be opened.
Miss Borden's head went down upon the
rati In front of hr and tears vame where
they had refused to come for many a long
day as she heard the sweetest words ever
poured Into her willing cars the words
Mr, Jennings was almost crying, and his
voice broke as he put his hand out to Mr.
Adams, who sat next to him, and said,
"Thank God," while Mr. Adams returned
the pressure or toe nana ana seemed ln-
eapauie or sprecb.
The closinK scene in the trial was in direct
contrast with those whloh had preceded It, 1
Heretofore all nan boen decorous and in
keeping with the dignity of the' most dig
nified court In the country. But when the
rerdlot of "not guilty" was returned a
eheer went up which might have been
heard half a mile away through the opeu
windows, and there was no attempt to
heck It, The stately Judges looked
straight ahead at the bare walls. Sheriff
Wright was powerless to wield the gavsl,
and not once during the tremendous ex
citement, which lasted fully a minute, did
he make the slightest sign or having heard
it, He never saw the people rising In their
seats and waving their handkerohlefs, In
unteon with their voices, because his eyes
were full of tears and were completely
blinded for the time.

dissolving jury as they filed out of their
