'Decision Against tl

! In the Penitenti
i Nashville, Tenn., Special.-Guilty
of murder in the second degree-pun
ishment 20 years' imprisonment-this
was the unexpected verdict rendered
by the .ury agalasi Col. Duncan B.
Cooper and Robin J. Cooper when the
?jourt opened Saturday. The jury Fri
day acquitted John D. Sharp, indicted
.?with the Coopers for the slaying of
. former ?- S. Senator Edward W. Car
Rush to Sign Bond.
Although Judge Hart fixed the bond
at $25,000 there was a rush to sign
it on the part of wealthy citizens of
Nashville which fairly swamped the
' "The first to arrive was John J.
Greener, who signed for $10,00 on
each bond. Several others had been
Bent for and telephoned that they
would come as quickly, as automobiles
would, bring them. . In a few moments
?Walter O. P?rmer arrived and signed
for the balance. "I will sign for a
million for these men, ' ' he remarked.
Iii vain the clerk protested over and
over again that more than enough
sureties had signed but the invariable
answer was "We want to put'our
name on that bond too." It seemed
as though every friend of the Coopers
considered it incumbent upon him to
sign the bond. When there was no
more room for names at the foot of
the document the new bondsment en
dorsed across the face until it was
difficult to decipher the signatures.
When filed the bond totaled nearly a
million and a half.
The Jury's Verdict.
At 9:25 the 12 men entered the
room and took the same seats they
?ad occupied for nearly 9 weeks.
"Have you agreed upon a verdict,
gentlement?" said Judge Hart.
"We have," replied Foreman E.
M. Burke hoarsely.

"So say we all," in chorus.
"I* thank you, gentlement, " said
the court, "for your patience and de

The jurors were tired-looking and

Washington, Special. - Alcohol
practicality has no therapeutic uses,
judging from the discussion at the
semi-annual meeting here Thursday

no therapeutic uses; others that on
the whole it has few such uses, while
another declared that alcohol grad

ARGUMENTS BEGUN IN LYENS
Jesup, Gs., Special.-Argumentan
.were begun Friday in the trial of
former Sheriff W. 3. Lyens and his J
son, Archie, eharged with the murder |
of Fleming Smith. The court room '.
was crowded with spectators until. a <
late hour Friday night, when court :
adonrned until 9 o'clock Friday
morang. The ex-sheriff made his
first statement Friday. On the wit
ness stand be said that he and Archie
bad been asked by Smith whether
they wished to make any purchases in
ie Two Coopers for
ary the Penalty.
Verdict a Surji?se.
The verdict, coming as it did upon
the heels of Foreman Burke's dec?
laration Friday that "we are hope
lessly tied ap as to the Coopers," was
a decided surprise. The defendants
took it colly-almost without emotion.
In a second after Judge Hart ceased
dismissing the jurors, Judge Ander
son, of the defense, was on his feet
exclaiming: . "Your honor; we move
that the case be declared a mistrial
because of the verdict Friday =we con
tend that Friday's verdict was the
only one, and that it acquitted John
Sharp but declared a disagreement on
the other defendants. "We also ask
that the defendants be admitted to
bond at once."
A Bailable Case.
"The verdict of the jury makes it
a bailable case," was the court's re
tort. 'Hence I will fix the bond of
each defendant at $25,000 unless
there be some objection. In that
event I will hear arguments." "It
is satisfactory toxus," said Attorney
General McCarn. "And to us," re
torted Judge Anderson. "There
seems nothing left but for the court
to pass sentence," added Judge JEart.
"I do not think that necessary,"
said Judge Anderson. We move that
judgment be suspended and that we
be given a new trial. We will be pre
pared to argue the motion later
probably next week."
"All right, judge," remarked the
court. "I know you will not delay
unnecessarily and I will take it up at
your own convenience."
How the Jury Voted.
The, jurors were not inclined to talk
but one of them said:
"On the first ballot we acquitted
John Sharp and disregarded the con
spiracy theory. On this same ballot
we stood six for guilty of murder in
the first degree with mitigating cir
cumstances, five for murder in the
second degree with 20 years, the
maximum penalty and one for ae
quitttal. The ballots all day Wednes
day and Thursday showed the same
result. Friday,the man who voted
for acquittal came over to murder in
the second degree but demanded that
only 10 ;?ears be assessed. The rest
of us did not deem ten years as any
thing like adequate, so we disagreed
again. Of course, all this refers to
the Coopers, not Sharp, whom we had
acquitted. Early Saturday morning
the man who was holding out for 10
years agreed to 20 years and the six
who were voting for a first degree
verdict agTeed to this verdict."

Department of Labor .gives the mem

more than 40,000 union men to lose

120,000 Idle Union Men.
According to Mr. Robinson there
would then be at least 120,000 union
men out of work In New York City.
Of homeless men and vagrants the
number is, under ordinary conditions,
about 30,000. From such meagre
facts as may be collected the total
number of New York's unemployed ls
more than 200,000. Imagine such a

A striking feature of the hill is

to be taxed one per cent; $100,000
to $500,000 two per cent; over $500,
000 three per cent. Collateral bene
ficiaries are to pay five per cent on
all amounts over $500.
