DECLARED HER NOT GUILTY.

Atlanta, Ga., Aug. 2.-"Twelve
good men and true" to-day declared
Mrs. Daisy Opie Grace "not guilty"
of the charge of shooting her hus
band, Eugene H. Grace, with Intent
The vet diet was reached after two
hours' deliberation, during which the
accused woman underwent all the
agonies of one In her position. When
she was supported into tho court
room just before the entrance of the
jury, at 5 o'clock this afternoon,
M TB. Grace appeared to be bordering
on collapse. Trembliug.Xrom.head-to
foot she was assisted to the chair she
hail occupied all during the trial,
which began last Monday, and await
ed tho verdict.
. As the jurymen flied In, ono by
one, Mrs. Crace straightened herself
in her chair, then sank hack and
gritted her teeth.
"Gentlemen of the jury, have you
agreed upon a verdict?" Judge
Roan's inquiry broke a silence simi
lar to that of the tomb.
"Wo have." responded the fore
man. "We lind the defendant not
litters Fervent Prayer.
Several seconds elapsed before a
soul in tho court room stirred. .Mrs.
Crace bowed her head and uttered a
fervent prayer. Then the newspaper
men, making a mad scramble for tho
door to get the news to the world,
transformed the scene into one of ac
tivity. Some enthusiastic spectator
gave vent to his feelings mid shout
ed. There was some hand clapping.
Judge Roan raised his hand, and any
demonstration that might have oc
curred was quickly suppressed.
While Mrs. Grace's head was still
bowed, Attorney Moore, at her side,
arose and said: "Your Honor, Mrs.
Grace would like to thank tho jury."
Like one In a daze, the woman was i
assisted to her feet.
"Gentlemen," she said In a voice
hardly audible, "1 want to thank you
for your kidness to me."
Sho sank hack, inert, while
friends crowded around her and
grasped her Ump hand. Not even a
emile expressed the relief she must
have felt after her terrible ordeal.
Women struggled frantically to
reach the place where she sat only to
be forced back without reaching
their goal. Tko jurymen remained
in their places even after they had
been discharged. A full minute
elapsed, and then Mrs. Crace arose
and was assisted to the jury box.
For thc first time she showed a sign
of animation as silently she grasped
the hands of each ono of these
twelve men who had spoken their
belief in her innocence and had given |

court room immediately afterwards.
lt was announced that she would
leave to-night tor her old bonn' in
Philadelphia. Her joy bad to be
tempered with sorrow. Hardly had
she heard of her acquittal before she
wan handed a telegram announcing
that her blind son In tho Quaker
City was seriously ill. Mother love
then conquered every other feeling,
and her' only thought then was to
roath his bedside.
As Husband Sees lt.
Newnan. Ca., Aug, 2.-- "In her

clared Eugene H. Grace at his home
here this afternoon, when informed
that his wife had just been acquitted
of the charge of shooting him.
"It's pretty rotten. I don't see
how they could have even had a mis
trial. She may ho innocent in the
eyes of men, but she is guilty in thc
eyes of God."

figures in support ol' his opposition
to tho parcels post system, claiming
that ii would be suicidal to the In

d?ficits in the post office department.
Tho people, he said, would eventu- '

Congressman Wyatt Aiken
followed Mr. Evans. Ile began by a
defense of his record, stating, how
ever, that he had no complaint to
lodge against M. C. Long, one of his
opponents, but that he felt that Mr.
Evans had been unfair to him both
In some of his speeches and In print
ed articles. He gave an account of
his stewardship, renewed his pledge
to the people of the Third Congres
sional District for bis best efforts In
their behalf If he should be again
entrusted with the high office he is
now holding. His ote and influence,
he said, had always been on the side
of the people and opposed to trusts
and illegal corporations. He favor
ed the Bristow amendment, which
was simply a plan whereby United
States Senators, Congressmen and
other high o'flclals would be elected
by the people direct. This amend
ment, to become law, must be rati

speech was spicy and to the point,
