Jury in Nan Patterson Case Failed to
Agree on a Verdict
TflE SAME RESULT AS FORMERLY
After Nearly 13 Hours' Deliberation,
With an Interval For Supper, the
Jury Entrusted With the Fate of
Caesar Young's Alleged Murderess
Proves No More Able Than Its Pre
decessors to Reach a Verdict.
New York, Special.-At 1:30 o'clock
Thursday morning the jury in the case
of Nan Patterson, tried for. the third
time on the charge of murdering Caesar
Young, was called into the court room
by Recorder Goff, When the 12 men
were in their places and the court offi
cials had all arrivel, the recorder asked
why the defendant had not been
brought into court. A deputy sheriff
replied that she had been feeling ill
and had retired, but was then being
dressed. After a wait of 12 minutes,
Miss ' Patterson appeared looking pale
and in a highly nervous state.
"Gentlemen, have you been able to
reach an agreement?" asked the re
corder of the jury.
"No, sir," replied the foreman.
"Is there any question of law or
evidence in which I can instruct you?
Is there any way in which the court
can help you?"
The foreman looked for an instant
at his fellowmen, then turning to the
recorder, said: "No, sir, I don't be
lieve you can help us."
"Then you will retire to reconsider
The jury filed out and the court
room was cleared. Recorder Goff re
mained in his chamber ready to re
ceive a verdict if rendered or to fur
ther instruct the jury. Upon being as
sured that there was no chance of an
agreement, he discharged the jury.
While the jury considering her case
was still out, Nan Patterson sat in her
ceil in the Tombs, buoyed up by the
hope that at the end of their delibera
tion thc twelve men would agree to a
verdict of not guilty. Miss Patterson's
hope were based partly on rumors
which were current about the Criminal
Court building, that the first ballot
taken in the jury room were decidedly
in her favor. The jury had had the case
since shortly after 1 o'clock Wednesday
During the afternoon the jury sent to
the court rooms for articles of cloth
ing worn by Caesar Young at the time
he met his death, and the skeleton
which was exhibited during the trial
by the prosecution in its endeavor to
show that the victim of the tragedy
could not have inflicted the wound him
At 1.35 the jury, recorder and other
court officials had assembled in the
court room. Recorder Goff demanded
to know why Nan Patterson was not
present, when he was informed that
she was ill. He gave orders directing
that she be produced immediately.
CHARGE TO THE-JURY.
Recorder Goff in his charge to the
"You must not think that, because
of the humble position of this woman,
you should not give her the same con
sideration as if she occupied a more
exalted position in society. Whatever
her position, shr is entitled to the same
legal rights as the most prominent
and most conspicuous.
The recorder described the two de
grees of murder and manslaughter in
the first and second degrees, which, he
said, he apprehended by the request to
charge, was thought by counsel to be
applicable in the case, and proceeded:
"I understand that there is no claim
on the part of the defense that if the
defendant committed this homicide it
was either justifiable or excusable. I
also understand that the defense
claims that the crime was murder in
the first degree or nothiag. But you
are not bound to accept the arguments
of counsel as to the nature of this
crime. You are the judges of the facts,
if there was murder, and rn what de
grce. The crucial question is, 'Did the
man kill himself or did this defendant
fire th" fatal shot?'
"If the accused fails to take advan
tage of her privilege to make a de
fense, under advice of her counsel, her
failure to do so must in no way be
held against her.
NEED TO PROVE MOTIVE.
"Much has been said relating to the
motive which actuated thia defendant,"
he continued. "The prosecution claims
that she shot the man because he had
cast her off as his mistress. But it is
not necessary to prove motive to con
vict of murder. If it is shown that a
motive existed, then it tends to sup
port tue circumstances^ BuUo cto'4tTrnr
motive must be proved, not imagined.'
Before giving the case to the jury
Recorder Goff ruled on the requests to
charge interposed in Miss Patterson's
behalf. He refused to submit ene ol
the requests, saying that it would b
a direction to the jury to acquit the
defendant. He told the jury, however,
that they might disregard the testi
mony of Julia Smith if-they thought il
right to do so. He also refused to
charge requests concerning PawnbroK
er Stern and the failure of the defense
to call J. Morgan Smith. He said that
claims on either side were not to be

Monday's, Men Being Shot Down

Chicago, Special.-The death of one
. man and the injury of scores oi others
was the immediate result of Tuesday's
fighting between the striking teamsters
and their sympathizers on the one side,
and the police and the non-union men
on the other. There were riots in all
parts of the city. Men were clubbed and
stoned almost to death within a square
of police headquarters, and five miles
away men were shot down in the
6trnets. At a hundred places between
these two extremes of distance there
were assaults and fights in the streets.
Non-union men were pelted with
stones, bricks and every other conceiv
able sort of missies. They were drag
ged from their wagons, beaten, club
bed and stamped upon.
The Team Owners' Association,
which employs none but union team
sters, flatly refused to make deliveries
to any of ?he firms involved in the
strike, when asked to do so by the Em
ployers' Association at a conference at
the Union-League Club. When the em

notified the team owners that unless
the request that no discrimination be
made in deliveries were granted, an ef

On the other hand, business men
point to the long list of injured which

these lists of injured alone are suffi

is not sufficiently strong to cope with

against the police department, for the

Fishing for a License.
A good-natured German located in a
certain Pennsylvania town a few
years ago, and apparently had no def
inite business. Every morning regu
larly he would go to the creek that
ran through the town and fish for
black bass. The first mess that he
caught was given to the minister o?
the village church.
Some one, seeing the German on
the bank, said to him: "What are

were delivered at the home of the
school-teacher. The day after that
the leading banker received a fine
Bupply of fish; and 'so it went for
nearly a year. He caught fish every
day, and as regularly turned them
over to the leading citizens.
When the spring term of court came
around, he put in an application for
a liquor license. Under the rules of
that court it was necessary for twenty
citizens to sign a protest to kill an
application for a license. The protest
was taken around; but to the amaze
ment of the messenger he could get
no signors. The clergyman was much
opposed to the proposed license, but
could not find it in his heart to attach
his name to the paper. When the
court announced its decision, the Ger

Up and Down With the Bishop.

least suspect was a bishop. When
Bishop Dudley was preparing for his

"Preach?" gasped the old moun

Very rialn in Some People?
A great many people go on suffering
from annoying ailments for a long time
before they 0:111 get their own consent
to give up the indulgence from which
.their trouble arises.
A gentleman in Brooklyn describes
his experience, ns follows:
"I became satisfied some months ago
that I owed the palpitation of the
heart, from which I suffered almost
daily, to the ns? of coffee (I had been a
coffee drinker for 30 years), but I found
it very hard to give up the beverage.
"I realized that I must give up the
harmful indulgence In coffee, but I felt
the necessity for a hot fable drink, and
as tea is not to my liking, I was at a
loss for awhile, what to do.
"One day I ran across n very sensible
and straightforward presentation of
the claims of Postura Food Coffee, and
was so impressed thereby that I con
cluded to give it a trial. My experience
with it was unsatisfactory till I learned
how it ought to be prepared-by thor
ough bolling for not less than 15 or 20
minutes. After I learned that lesson
ihovt was no trouble. Postum Food
Coffee proved to bc a most palatable
mid satisfactory hot beverage, and I
have used it ever since.
"Tho effect on my health has been
most salu Iii ry. It has completely cured
(lie heart palpitation from which I used
to suffer so much, particularly after
breakfast, and I never have a return of
it except when I dine or lunch away
from home and am compelled to drink

ducting business by tho large'packers
located in Chicago and elsewhere.
Much has been written upon the al
leged ill?gal and improper modes of
business procedure connected with the
packing industry; but it seems that BO
far no definite charge of any kind has
been sustained and no proof of Illegal
or inequitable methods has been dis
closed to the public. While a wave of
severe criticism of this great Industrial
interest Is now passlug over the coun
try it might be well to remember that
the packers have had as yet no oppor
tunity to make specific denial, the
many indefinite charges of wrong-do
ing having never been formulated so
that a categorical answer could be
The recent report of Commissioner
Garfield, which embodied the results
of an official investigation undertaken
by the Department of Commerce and
Labor of the United States, was a vin

In view of the situation ns lt now
stands, however, attention may proper
ly bo called to a few facts that owing
to popular clamor are now being apr
patently overlooked. Fair treatment
in this country has heretofore been ac
corded to all citizens whose affairs as
sume prominence in the public eye and
some of the facts that bear upon the
relation of tho packers to the com
merce of the.country miy at this time
be briefly alluded to. It would be
difficult to estimate the benefits gaiued
by the farmers of the country result
ing from the energetic enterprise of
the packers, for whatever is of beueflt
to the farmer is a gain to the entire
commerce of the country. And con
nected with their continuous aggres
sive work no feature perhaps has been
more important than their efforts in
seeking outlets all over the world for
the surplus products of the farmer.
Our total exports of agricultural prod
ucts have gained but little In the past
twenty years, and leaving out corn, the
total of all other farm products was
far less la 1903 than in ISO!. But lu
packing house products lhere was con
siderable gain during this period, be
cause au organized and powerful force
has been behind them seeking new and
Besides the benetta reaped, by farm
ers on account of the enterprise and
energy exercised by the packers in at
taining commercial results by foreign
trade, the great development in the
manufacture of packing house by-prod
ucts has added enormously to the
value of all live stock raised in tho
United States. Tho waste material of
twenty years ago, then an expense to
the packer, ls now converted into ar
ticles of great value and, as an eco
nomic fact, this must correspondingly
increase the value to the farmer of
overy head of cattle marketed at the
numerous stock yards of the country.
Let these facts be remembered while
now lt is so popular to regard the
grsnt packing industry ns deserving of
condemnation. At least it must lie ad
mitted that, so far, there ls iw ade
quate reason for the almost unani
mous howl that may be heard every
where in the face of the Garfield re
port above alluded to which practical
ly exonerates tbe packers from the ob
scure and indefinite charges that have
been for some time past made the sub
ject of popular comment.

Dear MrsJPinkham :
" I can truly say that you have saved my
life, and I cannot express my gratitude to
you in words.
.'Before I -wrote to you, telling you how I

but it all failed to help me. My monthly pe
riods had ceased and I suffered much pain,
with fainting spells, headache, backache and
boaring-down pains, and I was so weak I
could hardly keep around. As a last resort
I decided to write you and try Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound, and I am so
thankful that I did, for after following your
Instructions, which yon sent me free of all
charge, my monthly periods started ; X am
regular and in perfect health. Had it not
boen for you I would be In mv grave to-day.
I sincerely trust that this letter may lead
every suffering woman in the country to
write you for help as I did."
