fEE SMITH JURY OUT.
'Judge "White Makes a Strong First
TOBEDRUNKNO EXCUSE IN HIS EYES
The Jorj Deliberates an Hour and Court
COL. DIKES' CASE WAS KON-SUITED.
Cm a 6toctholder Sue a Corporation ts a Kew
In the Smith murder case, now in the
Lands of the jury. Judge "White made a buc
fcinct charge for a first degree verdict, and
feaid that drunkenness was no amelioration
of crime results. Barr versus the Pittsburg
Plate Glass Company raises the novel point,
Can a stockholder sue a corporation ? Col
onel Danks gets off easily.
The Criminal Court was again occupied
yesterday with the Smith murder trial. By
11 o'clock the evidence was all in, and the
arguments to the jury were begun. Mr.
Marron opened ud for the defense and
orjpied that the prisoner was irresponsible be
cause of intoxication and being jealously in
earje. Thomas M. Marshall, Esq., followed and
made one of his characteristic arguments, ap
pealing to the sympathy of the jurors for an
irresponsible and icnoiant colored man. As
usual, Mr.Marshall berated the policcrcporters
and almost everybody else, who, he said, were
eager for the prisoner's life. Mr. Marshall
wished he was a judge just for one day, and the
first policeman who came beforo him
lie would send to jail. Mr. Marshall
then drew a vivid word picture of the
cxecntion of the prisoner with the
District Attorney, Sheriff and reporters, with
bulging eyes, watching every wriggle of the
unfortunate man. and detailed his every action
so that they could herald it to a gasping public
and sell more extras.
THE STATE'S PEESENTATION.
District Attorney Porter then took the jury,
Beginning his argument at 220 and closing at
6:30. Mr. Porter began his argument by stat
ing that if ever there was a clear
case of first degree murder the one
iost finished was a case of that kind. The
hstrict Attorney then took np the testimony
of the witnesses, one at a time and argned on
them at great length, paving particular atten
tion to the testimony of Mr. Bagby, Detectives
Conlson. Fitzgerald and Robinson, regarding
the statements made by the prisoner to
them and to the prisoner's declaration to Mr.
ilagby. that Allegheny county juries did not
hang men nowadays. The prisoner was classi
fied as a coward, who coolly and deliberately
murdered his wife while she slept, sending her
to the repose of death witbont a moment's
warning, or without time to utter a prayer.
The theory of insanity, because the man at
tempted suicide, Mr. Porter said, was without
sense. The securing of the whisky a day or tn o
before tbe murder was nothing more nor less
than the getting ready of a defense. Great
stress was laid on the alleged utterance of the
prisoner, "I am not afraid of being hanged;
they are not hanging anybody in Allegheny
county any more. They might send me to the
penitentiary for awhile." The jury was asked
to not so subscribe to such utterances. A recess
was then taken until 7 o'clock.
JUDGE WHITE'S CHABGE.
At 7 o'clock conrt opened again, and Judge
"White charged the jury. It occupied more
than an hoar's time and was very exhaustive,
containing the main points of the testimony
and the conclusions the jury could be expected
to draw from it.
Judge White said the duty of jurors was an
unpleasant one when sitting on a murder trial,
and no man of sensibilities desired to pass on a
man's guilt. It was just as unpleasant
for the Court. The responsibility of the
jury was great, but that of the
Court was greater. Both are actlnc
under oath. Care should be taken in extend
ing sympathy. The Commonwealth did not
seek tbe blood nor tbe wealth of any citizen,
but it is a duty to see that the laws are kept for
the protection of society. Tboughtf ul consid
eration should at all times be git en. The jury
is to And a true verdict according to tbe evi
dence, and the Court to assist them in under
standing tbe law. The verdict is not what
sends a man to the gallows, but the sentence of
The Commonwealth is expected to establish
tbe guilt of the accused beyond a reasonable
doubt. The latter might arise from contradic
tory or inconsistent evidence, and so the
reasonable doubt must be a substantial one.
Formerly the law of this State was tbe same as
that of England, and a man found guilty of
murder bad no appeal, hut now he can appeal
to the Supreme Conrt and find his remedy
The law on murder, passed in 1794, has been
nrgued in hundreds of cases before tbe Su
preme Court and discussed by tbe ablest law
yen, but it has never been repealed or abro
gated. A FIRST DEGBEE CHABGE.
The testimony of the case was then reviewed
tjy the Court, when he said: "You are the ex
clusive judges of what tbe testimony is. Six
witnesses testified to Smith's admissions to
ldllirg his wife, which is amply
sufficient to cause a verdict of
first degree. Other witnesses testified to his
excessive drinking, and still others to his gen
eral peaceful character. As to the defendant's
own testimony that he did not know what had
occurred durine the night you may also take
that into consideration."
Then tbe law as applied to this case in par
ticular was clearly propounded at some lenclh,
and in Judge White's opinion tbe defendant
Mas not more ignorant than the ordinary
colored man of his class. If jealousy caused
lim to comcit the deed it was not sufficient
excuse, and by continuing to live with her
after he secured the letters offered in evidence,
lie condoned her offense, it it was really an
As for drinking being an excuse for mnrder.
Judge White thought it a bad excuse and said :
'Murders would multiply by the dozens, and
our moral and social ties would be constantly
shocked. The penalty of nine or ten years for
'manslaughter has no terrors for some people,
who. In case they wished to seek vengeance,
would simply get drunk and shoot their vic
tim." At the conclusion of tbe charge the
counsel for Smith asked permission to send the
letters bearing on the case into tbe jury room
with tbe jury, but the Court would not allow
It, and told the stenographer to note his excep
tion. The Court waited an hour for a verdict, hut
as no word was received the jury were locked
tip for tbe night.

BARE WINS A POINT.
The Demurrers In the Plate Gloss Case
Overruled A Stockholder la Permitted
to Sae a Corporation.
In the United States Circuit Court yesterday
an Important decision was rendered on tbe de
murrers of the defendants in tho case of
Samuel F. Barr vs. the Pittsburg Plate Glass
Company. It mil be remembered that Samuel
F. Barr is a stockholder in the plate glass com
pany, no filed a bill in equity against the
company charging the directors with con
spiracy In building two other plants and then
selling thein to the plate glass company at a
price exceeding their value.
The defendants demurred on the ground that
a stockholder could not sue a corporation of
which he was a member, except through the
Board ot Directors; but as the directors in the
caso were interested parties, Mr. Barr made
the allegations in his own name, and yesterday
the Circuit Court decided that he had a right
to do so. The decision is an important one.
bearing on the definition of stockholders'
rights generallv. Sol Schoyer, S. B. Schoyer
and W. R. Errett appeared for tbe plaintiff,
and Messrs. Watson and Scott for defendants.
Thft Hnitittnn Vnllnwa?
In so far at least as the bill relateslto the
Ford City works, it is not founded, as the de
murrers assumc,upon aright ot action belonging
solely to the corporation defendant: but it is
really based on the plaintiff's individual riehts.
Tho injury here complained of directly affects
the plaintiff personally, and he seeks tbe pro
tecting power of the court against the alleged
fraud of the governing Board of Directors of
the corporation and another stockholder, who,
in violation of the plaintiff's rights, are about
to proceed to do an unlawful act which will de
stroy or seriously impair the value of property
in which the plaintiff has an Interest. No one
outside of tbe corporation has any concern in
the controversy, nor is any outsider here
sued. The corporation itself is a real defend
ant, the bill praymgfor an injunction to restrain
it lrom consummating the alleged fraudu
lent transaction. Tho bill alleges not only that
all the directors are actine in their own inter
ests and in fraud of the rights of the plaintiff,
but also that they and their co-spirator (four
defendant herein) together hold seven-tenths
of the stock of the corporation, and further
that they have procured a vote of the stock
holders authorizing them to carry out the con
templated fraudulent project in view, then, of
these allegations, which for the present we
most accept as trne, it would be most unreas
onable to defeat tbe plaintiff's suit, becense the
bill does not show a previous effort on his part
to obtain redress within the corporation by an
appeal for remedial action to the directors or
stockholders. The -demurrers must be over
ruled with leave to the defendants to answer
the bill within 30 days.
BLASHFORD TOOK A NON-SUIT.
The Slander Case Against Col. John A.
Danks Ended In Smoke.
The suit of Thomas Blashford against the
Rev. Colonel John A. Danks for damages for
slander, was called for trial yesterday before
The suit was based on tbe already famous
letters written by Colonel Danks to Mr. Blash
ford concerning tbe troubles between the two
and for which Colonel Danks was disciplined by
the Pittsburg M. E. Conference. Messrs. Bird
and McKelvey appeared a attorneys for Mr.
Blashford and C F. McKenna for Colonel
Ajury was called, but before any testimony
was taken tbe plea was put in that tbe terms
which were used and were alleged to be Elan
derous,and for which damages were claimed,
were not actionable. The terms referred to
were "scoundrel." 'blackleg." etc. Judgo
Ewing appeared to concur with that view, but
before anything further was done tbe plaintiff
took a non-suit. This ended the case.
THE SAWMILL RUN CASE.
Testimony For nnd Against tbe Dam The
Jury Is Oat.
The Sawmill Run dam case against J. "W.
Friend, Theodore Wood and others, was con
tinued before Judge Magee yesterday. The
defense placed Colonel T. P. Roberts, Mr.
Wainwright, Mr. Ediburn and other expert
civil engineers on the stand to show that the
building of tbe dam was not tbe cause of the
clogging up of sewers. ete but on
the contrary, had a good effect on
tbcm as an outlet. Mr. Theodore Wood
testified that tho property all along the run. in
cluding tbe run itself, as far back as the Main
street sewer, was the private property of the
Wood estate, and the city had never beeu
granted the right to use It as an outlet for out
houses, etc ....,
The case was then argued by Mr. Knox for
the defense and Major Moreland for the prose
cution. Judge Magee then charged the jury.
The jury is sull out.
BROTHERS IN LITIGATION.
Tho Use of a Stream of Water the Basis of
John Hopper yesterday filed a bill in equity
against bis brother, Goodman C. Hopper. The
two owned adjoining farms in South Fayette
The plaintiff alleges that the other diverted
the course of a stream from a spring so that it
did not run on to his farm, thereby denrlving
him of water in his sprirg house and trough.
He aks tbe Court to make a decree compelling
the defendant to return the stream to its
former and natural course.
