A ong r.oul " o'clock yesterdav
morning, as the dawn was com
;<et:ni: with the eleetr.r lights, one of
the ten iuror- who had stood irmly for

to end tae controversy would be to

w_hile the-( was breath in his body ho

Mr. Aston leaped to his feet and in
vited his assailant to step forward
and trv it. At this William G. Horey.
the second man for conviction, pushed
his chair "jack and. hastening to Mr.
Aston s side, added his voice to the in
vitation. No one, however, seemed
disposed to execute the threat.
Began With Promise of Verdict
Tse jarv's deliberations began wita
smiles aad auspicious indications of an
early decision. Some one suggested
that a ballot be taken forthwith, that
seeming the simplest way to learn the
genera! impression left by the testimony
of both sides, and so a ballot was east.
It showed that nine were for acquittal
: nd that three. Aston. Hovey and Marx
Gotts'h, were for conviction
Then as explosion in 'he pleasant I
atmosphere which had surrounded the ■
preliminary remarks of all the jurors oe-'
ccrred when Robert Ludlam. the fore- '
man. suggested that it would be more
to the point if the jurors for conviction :
would confine their attention to the
testimony instead of making their own
inferences. Another ballot was taken
and showed that Gottsch had been won
over to the acquittal side, while Hovev ;
and Aston remained unshaken.
It was at this point, onlv fifteen min- '
utes after Justice Kelby "had charged
the jurors and sent them out. that a
ioud knork resounded in the court
room. The court clerk hastened to the >
jury door and opened it to fin I Mr.

was brought into the court room from
the small ante-chamber to which she
had retired with her husband when the
jury went out.
The juror* took five ballots in as
many hours without farther change in
••heir opinions. Daring this time their
urg.imcnts grew constantly more acrid
and the hope of an eventual agreement
, faded further as the night progressed.
It was 10 59 o'clock yesterday room
i ing precisely when the jurors, convinced
that he\ \kil.l not reach an agree
ment. filed into the court room and took
their seats Mrs. Carman had appeared
nearly half an hour earlier. Dr. Car
man. Mrs. Powell and Mrs. Corby were
with he-. It ha.i been guessed before
hand that the jury had been unable to
agree. s,> some of the edge was taken
: from the suspense of those who waited.
Tells Judge of Disagreement
There was very little formality about
tho proceedings. Every one seemed in
ei'ned to ire: through as qnieklv as pos
sible. As soou as the roll had been
called Mr. Ludlaai said:
••Wo nave been unable to agree. We
; have talked over all the evidence and
! there is no hope.
" \ro y on sure, Mr. Lud'atn. that you
■•annot aj.ee?" asked Justice Kelby,
who iiad sat up ail nigh;.
••There is no chance, your Honor,
i -eplied she foreman. "Wo talked stead-
I ily for eight or nine hours, and after
that occasionally, aud we haven't had
a «>nk of sleei>."
t "I am in the same boat wth *ou
there, gentlemen,'' said Just.ce Keibv,
i smiling. '
'•:>jt we been arguing." put in
; the foreman.
Mr. Graham. counsel for Mrs. Car
man. then suggested that the jurors be
asked if it was the e*i lence that they
could no: agree upo«». The question was
put. with the remark from Justice Kel
:>v that he might be able to straighten
! out some i>oint of difference.
"It isn t a question of evidence, your
j Honor." spoke up juror No. 9. who was
Joseph Mollneaux. "We have gone over
t all very carefully and cannot reach
"I am very sorrv, gentlemen, that
■ vou annot agree."' said the Justice.
"You have been here for a week and I
; am not inclined to hold ; <>u longer. I
| wil discharge you.
With that. Just.ce Kelby -ose and
i the twelve jurors, putt.ng on their hats.
