LIZZIE BORDEN NOT GUILTY.
A CELEBRATED CASS ENDS.
Tb Jury in Her Case Find Ber Inno

At Nw 1) ilford, Mass., on Tuesday af
ternoon the Jury In the Bordeti murdet
case returned a verdict of not guilty. I
4.33 the Jury signaled they were ready to re
turn to th court room, and with a rush
official and eager.lntirested spectator hur
ried to t'je scene. Amid suppressed, luteins
excitement the jurors died Into the room.
Then t'je clerk, a I th custom. called upon
th prisoner to look upon the Jury and
raise her hnnd. Lizzie Borden arose tremb
ling and tottering, and it was with difficul
ty the cnlmd her feet, but when once stand
ing she appeared a firm a a rock, llei
white face was turned calmly toward the
men who held her fate in their keeping.
"Gentlemen, have you agreed upon I
verdict; what say yon Mr. Foreman?" Be
fore the Judge had finished speaking the
foreman had replied; "Not guilty."
Cheer after cheer broke nut upon the
stillness of the afternoon. The court re
f rained from any attempt at suppressing it,
and it was some minutes before all became
The prisoner withstood unusually well the
strain upon her, although there were many
signs of the mental anguish she suffered
preceding the announcement of the verdict.
When th words "Not guilty" were pro
nounced the tension was removed. Then the
little woman fell into a vacant chnir and
quick as lightning her face changed from
pallor to a deep red hue. Then she bent her
head on ber hands and resting on the rail
ing in iront oi ner, silently wept, ine re
action had come. When the Court ordered
ber to arise, so that ah might be discharged
without delay, she heeded not the Judge,
apparently not hearing him. Her head still
remained on the rail, to all appenranccs in
animate. Sheriff Klrhy, who sat near her,
touched her arm. When she arose it was
feared she must or on hack aeain fa Intinir
but she menaced to stand, with her face
bent low, while the clerk pronounced th
lormai word wnicn gave tier freedom.
The District Attorney then entered a
nolle prosse In the other two indictments of
Biurder against Lizzie Horden and concrntn
lated Ex-Governor Kobinson, attorney for
the prisoner, upon the result ot his labors.
Immediately upon adjournment the jury
expressed a desire to take the hand of Lizzie
Borden and Governor Kobinson was the
first to congratulate her, and even he, the
trnined attorney, could not repress his
emotion. The Bey. Mr. Buck, her pastor,
could only weep. Lizzie was led into the
Judge's room and reception was given her
by citizens of Fall Itiver and New Bedford,
who cordially shook her hand and congrnt

friend, Mrs. Holmes; her uncle, John V.
Morse; her sister Emma, and ex-Governor
Kobinson, Lizzie was the first to descend
the court house stairs to the carriage. Her
face was flushed, her Hps were trembling
nervously and ahe appeare I more excited
than at any time since her arrest. All who
wished passed by the carriage and shook
hands with Lizzie, and many kissed her
hand. There were three cheer for the uc-
?uitted girl and as the carriage disappeared
rom s'ghtthe flutter of a little white hand
kerchief was seen a a parting salute from
Details or the Crime.
The eldest victim of the crime was Andrew
3. Borden, a capitalist of Fall Kiver. Mns.,
who was seventy years old. The other vic
tim was his second wife, stepmother to the
prisoner. She was eoimldernlily voting!

Emma called her stepmother "AIiIiIb," but
Lizzie did not call bor anything to her face
or speak to her at all. She qiutrmllod with

crowd who are constantly arriving on foot

whereabouts of some member of the offic

recruited in l'lmouth und Portsmouth, but
Hie olllcers belong to good families all over
the country, and consequently thousands

"The battle sliipVictoris, th ing the ensign
of Vice Admiral Sir Geo'ge Tryon, was en
gaged in naval tactics oil the coast of Syria,
with the battle ship Camperdown, also of
the Mediterranean squadron, Thursday
afternoon, when the weather was bright
and the sun shining. The two ships were
going through their maneuvers within a
distance of three miles of each other, which
gave each ship but small space considering
the reaction ol the tide.
"Suddenly the Camperdown wa carried
toward the Victoria by the tide in a rapid
way before the Victoria could steam ahead,
or the Camperdown 'commander obtained
control ot the vessel she struck IheVictorin,
the Camperdown ram striking the flag ship
In the neighborhood of the foremost "lar
board terret. At the moment of the collision
the commander of the Camperdown was
heard to give order to reverse the engine,
but the tide was so strong as to carry the
vessel further into the entrails of the Vic
toria. The big ship tore along aside of tho
other, cutting an immense hole in her that
extended over several feet.
"All this happened so unexpectedly and
with such lightning velocity as to complete

tight compartment on the left of the ship,
the uninjured side. Fre-witnesses report
that the vessel was nearly cut in two. and
every one below deck at the time perished.
None of them could have reached the deck
after the collision, a they were either
drowned or (tunned by the Inrushing wa
ters. The vessel sank within li minute af
ter being struck in 80 fathoms of water.
"Admiral Tryon waa on deck at the time
of the collision, but refused to leave his

Senator Leland Stanford died Wednesday
night at hi country sent, Palo Alto, Cal. Ha
wa In the beat of health the day beore and
took a drive around his stock farm and re
tired alter 9 o'clock. He made no complaint
during the day regarding hi health. About
midnight hi valet entered hi bed room
a- d found hi master dead. Lately hi limbs
beenme much nfTected and a week ago he
was hardly able to move about without as
sistance. He said he suffered fiom gout, but
that the hot treatment he wa undergoing
would cure him. He would have resigned
his Senntorihlp before long. The body will
The lollowing 1 a condensed outline ot
(he deceased Senator's career:
Senator Stanford wss born at Wafervllef,
Albany county. March (t. 1M24; admitted to
the bar, and began practicing law at Fort
Washington, Wis. In 184S he wa married
to Jane Latbropat Albany, N. Y. In 1850 ha
removed to California and engaged in min
ing in 1H.V2. In IN00 he was a delegate to the
National Kepuhlicaii Convention ihut nom
inated for President Abraham Lincoln, of
whose nomination he was an earnest advo
cate. He was elected Governor of Califor
nia In 1WII: elected President of the Central
Facillo itiiilroad Company in IWil, and drove
the last spike of the Central TaHII Kail
road at Promontory, t'tnh, in l0ft. He was
elected I'nited States Senator from Califor
nia in 1HS-1. He laid the cornerstone of
Leland Stanford, Jr., I'niversity in 1887,
which he opened in 1X01.
Various estimates from lime to time have
been made of Senator Stanford' wealth. It
ha been placed by many as high as 120,
000,000, and even t.'M.OWi.OOO, and again
there have been those who have leaped all
barriers and placed his wealth at $70,000. 000.
In these times, and considering his interests
in the Southern I'acillo system, the great
I'alo Alto and Vina ranches, hi city and
country residences, it is difficult to arrive at
what be actually svas worth.
The residence at I'alo Alto, with Ita exten
sive ground, is undoubtedly the finest of
Its kinj in California, and perhaps there ia
no country hoiim in America in all respect
so fine, it Is here that the Senator ha
pent most of his ti i since his return from
Washington. In his residence there and in
San Francisco are pictures and statuary
that have cost hundred of thousanda of
dollars. He has lived like a king, traveled
by special car and with a whole retinue of
attendants that has astonished even th
richest men of the Old World,
Mr. Stanford maoe the beginning of hla
?reat fortune out of the Cnion anif Central
'acillc, of which he, together with C. P.
Huntington. Fred Crocker and Mark Hop
kin, were the original incorporator.
