HEARST GUNMAN BARRETT HELD FOR MURDER
FOR THIRD TIME IN EIGHT MONTHS
Mankiller Unmoved When Faced by Widow u.id Babe of
Man He Murdered, and as Mother, Sister and
Sweetheart Kiss and Caress Him.
We, the jury, find that Walter
Masterson, 3112 Racine avenue,
came to his death on the ninth of
February in the saloon of Henry
Treusch, at 3415 Lincoln avenue,
from shock and hemorrhage, fol
lowing a stab wound of the heart
inflicted with a knife held irt the
hand of one Edward Barrett in
the aforesaid saloon on said Feb
ruary 9 about 12:15a. m. We, the
jury, recommend that the said
Edward Barrett, who is now un
der arrest, be held to the grand
jury on the" charge of murder un
til discharged by due course of
law. We further recommend that
one Henry Barrett also be held as
an accessory until discharged by
due course of law.
This is the third verdict within
eight months in which a coroner's
jury of Cook County has recom
mended that Edward Barrett be
held to the grand jury on a charge
of murder.
For the third time within eight
months Ed Barrett sat coolly and
at ease in the North Robey street
police station yesterday while
witness after witness pointed him
out as a mankiller.
For the third time within eight
months he heard a jury's verdict
holding him for murder read, and

His loyal old mother, with
the tears streaming down her
face, put her arms around him
and laid her cheek to his. His sis
ter, Kitty Barrett, and his sweet
heart, Mabel Edwards, kissed
him and caressed him. But his
face did not change, and no look
of sorrow, nor pain, nor gladness
over the loyalty of his-.women-kind
passed over it.
All day the witnesses marched
before Deputy Coroner Conrad
and told how a knife held bv Ed
Barrett had been driven straight
