" FIRE UNAVOIDABLE,
SAYS ONE JUROR.
Abraham Wechsler, Juror No. 6 ?n
the tri.il of Isaac Harris and Max
Blanck. was in his room at the Hotel
Majestic last night when he was
asked what occurred in the jury room.
That he declined to discuss, saying
the verdict spoke for itself.
"But who is responsible for the 148
persons who died in the Triangle
Waist Company's fire?"' he was asked.
"My God! Who is responsible?"
he said in amazement. "Why, it was
?omething that might have happened
anywhere, even in a theatre with
plenty of exits."
He said that the charge of Judge
Crain was fair and impartial, and that
both sides fought well. Asked if the
jury believed that the fragment of the
frame will, the locked door a-xd the
shot bolt wai manufactured evidence,
or, m police parlance, a plant, he ex
ein,mar!, "Such an idea is absurd."
He was then asked if the jury,
while m the courtroom, believed the
Washmqton Place door was locked.
That lu refused to say, saying he
could answer only for himself and
that what he thought he intended
