After the slow grind through eight

morning was given up to the charge of
Justice Goff a brilliant comprehensive
review of the evidence produced by
both sides of the Issue Justice Goff
gave surprislnglj little attention In his
charge to the testlmonj of William
Shapiro jet It was learned after the
verdict that It was the story of the
chauffeur which had the greatest weight
with the Jury
It was at 10.30 a. m that the justice
began his charge A sharp watch was
kept by the police and court attendants
upon all who entered the room It was
felt that a crisis was at hand and there
were uglv rumors afloat.
The four defendants entered the court
room still bearing their confident smiles
though it was observed that their
usually careful toilets had been neg
lected
Gunmen Felt Doom
Through three hours of quiet, unem-
phasized talk Justice Goff held the at
tention of jurors and spectators alike As
the words fell from his lips, however, the
srlrlts of the defendants seemed to drop
Marshaled In all Its force, the evidence
o' the prosecution seemed to be even
more crushing than when It had been
presented piece meal to the Jur
During the last hall hour of the charge
ev ery eye ln the court room was centered
upon the four defendants. The low.
musical voice of the Justice seemed to
be chanting a requiem When he fin
ished at 1.SS p m., amid deep silence the
jurors filed out, there was not a spectator
the court room wno was not con-
vicced that the doom of the four gun
men was seaiea.
They felt It themselves. Passing out
Into the pen behind the trial chamber,
"Lefty Louie" turned dull eyes upon his
cellmate. "Gyp," and whispered
"Its all up with us. Gyp"
No one dreamed, however, that the
final act In the drama was to be played

themselves In preparing to take the Jury

Capital Ministers
Favor Word "Hell"
New Bible Changing the Word Causes Comment.
Preachers Reticent About the Matter, as
They Have Not Seen New Bible.
The sentiment of the Baptist ministers
of Washington Is rather against the sub
stltutlon of the word underworld for
the time-honored term hell, one of the
Innovations In the new version of the
Bible that has recentl come from the
press of the American Baptist Publica
tion Company of New Vork. The feel
that the substl'ution may merely con
fuse readers without a good reason for
the change.
Most of the ministers approached last
night for an expression of feeling con
cerning the several changes made in the
new version were averse to discussing
the new work until the had seen copies
of It. It has not yet round its way
into Washington
On the change ot the word "whale to
'big Ash," the phrase Lord thy God'
to "Jehovah thy God the use of man
and woman In the place or Adam ana
Eve, and the other mutations of the
new version, the ministers did not rire
to comment until they had had a chance
to study tho new Bible but all who
talked on the subject were strongly op
posed to doing away with ' hell In fav or
of the milder "underworld "
"I can see no advantage in changing
the word "hell for "underworld,"' said
Rev VY W McMaster pastor of the
First BaDtlst Church. " It Is no more ex-
planatory of what we wish to express
than the 01 word, and wouia merely De
confusing I think. It Is really too early.
