MISTRIAL FOR PATTY ARBUCKLE
Snid that Eleven Members of Jury
Favored (?iving ulm Freedom.
A dispatch from San Francisco, of
date Dec. 4, which wo were unable
to publish last week, contained tho
following information regarding tho
trial of Roscoe ("Fatty") Arbuckle,
the film star comedian, who waa on
trial on tho charge of manslaughter:
Mistrial in Arbuckle Case.
After forty-one hours of delibera- ?

and five women, which tried Roscoe j

Virginia Rappe, was discharged when 1

There wore two Jurors who voted
for conviction, according to August
Fiitze, foreman of the jury.
District Attorney Brady said that
Arbuckle had boen given a fair trial,
and ho complimented tho Jurors who j
held out for conviction as having
"courage and conviction." He was
not in court when tho jury reported.
"1 had hoped the jury would reach
an agreement," ho said. "I confident
ly expected a verdict of guilty upon
the evidence presented. In my opin
ion, the disagreement does not vin
dicate Roscoe Arbuckle. A vindica
tion would come after a quick, unan
imous verdict. It was my duty to
present tho facts to tho Jury. This 1
have done, though opposed by great
wealth, power and Influence,"
Tho members of tho Jury looked
haggard and worn when they filed
into the little court room, over which
a deep hush had settled, and took
their seats. The foreman Informed
tho court that "lt ls physically and
morally Impossible for us to roach a

"While this, through tho techni

said, in discussing tho jury's inabil

"The undisputed ?(nd uncontrn
dictod testimony established that my
only connection with tho sad affair
was ono of merciful sorvlco, and the
fact that ordinary human kindness
should have brought upon mo this
tragedy has seemed a cruel wroi,?,"
his statement continued.
"I have sought to bring Joy and
gladness and merriment into the
world, and why thia great misfor
tune should have fallen upon me 's
a mystery that only God can, and
will, some day reveal."
After stating that he rested his
cause in "divine Justice and tho con

period of illness, caused, according
to the defense contentions, by an in

tho injury resulted from an attempt
by Arbuckle to attack the actress.

Is Christ a Fallible
By REV. LEW W. GOSNELL
A nina tant Dean, Moody Bibi?
TEXT.-But of that day ur.u hour know*
oth no .man, no, not the annuls which aro
In heaven, neither tho bon but the Fa
Our fathers would have been
aiunzed to hour uny Christian leader
rejected in tuc light of Increasing
knowledge. It ls asserted that even lu
tho sprltual realm, our Lord was not
m infallible teacher. Ills assertions
iis to Old Testament history and au
thorship are rejected by many, and
moro recently Ills teaching as to the
future, ^specially the matter of His
return, liss been discorded.
Our text ls adduced In support of
this attitude, and lt behooves us to con
sider these words of Christ's careful
ly. lt ls not to be disputed that Christ
here disclaimed knowledge as to the
day and hour of Ills coming. True,
all the resources of His divine nature
were open to His mind, but for cer
tain mysterious purposes, Ile was con
tent to be Ignorant of this one thing
In the days of Ills humiliation. This
admission of Christ, however, does not
Justify Uie Inference drawn from lt
that He ls not n reliable teacher.
First of all, this very confession of
ignorance on one point contains an
implicit claim of supernatural knowl
edge. A mere man would not need to
Inform us that ho did not know the
day or hour of the Lord's coming; we
would take that for granted. The fact
that Christ must so Inform us, sug
gests at once that He was above man.
Again, notice the explicit claim
Christ makes for Himself. Prof.
James Stalker puts it tims : "Four
planes of being and of tue knowledge
are specified-that of man, that of
angels, that of Himself, and that of
God. Evidently the Son was above,
not only man, but angels, and If lt ls
confessed that He ls ignorunt of any
thing, this is mentioned as a matter
An Amazing Assertion.
.. Moreover, what more man ls compe
tent to tell us anything about the
knowledge or ignorunce of the augels?
But the Son of Mun calmly announces
that of that day and hour no angel
knows. Verily, this passage In which
Christ confesses ignorance assures us,
at the same time, of Immen curable In
sight on His part.
Finally, on this point of which He
confesses His Ignorance, Christ never
assayed to teach. He bids us watch,
because wo know not tho day nor the
hour, and Informs the disciples that
the Father hath kept the times and
seasons within own power. This
very resorve begets in us a confidence
that wo may rely Implicitly on any
positive teaching Jesus gives about
things present, things past, or things
to come. It has been aptly said:
"Christ knew whae He knew, and
never made positive affirmations un
less He was sure of the correctness of
what Ho said." How amazing it ls
that any man will charge our Lord
with ignorance on any point upon
which He claims knowledge 1
Let no child of God be disturbed
by learned talk as to the Ignorance of
our Lord. True, when He came Into
the world, He emptied Himself (Phil.
2:7 R. V.). But <he fact that as tho
words imply, the emptying was volun
tary, assures us that He was not so
emptied ns to be no longer able to
teach us whom He came to teach and
to save. It has been well said that
a man who should go to Africa to
teach the natives, hut who would con
fess he was not competent to give In
struction, would cense to be regarded
as a benefactor and would appear,
rather, as an Impostor. But our Lord
Is the Truth.
One Having Authority.
In all His positive teaching, Christ
speaks as one having authority, and
not as the scribes of the earth. Ho
confidently lifted tho veil from the un
seen world, In the parable of Lazarus,
calmly announced to the Sndducees
tho conditions which will obtain In the
resurrection. Think of such a declara
tion as Ile makes In Matthew 11:27:
"All things are delivered unto me of
my Father; and no man knoweth the
Son, but the Father; neither knoweth
nny man tho Father, save the Son, ?nd
he to whomsoever the Son will reveal
It will sulllce, In closing, to give lils
own assurance as to His 'caching. In
John 12:40, f>0, He says: "For I have
not spoken of myself; but the Father
which sent me, He gave me a com
mandment, what I should say, and
what I should speak. And I know that
Ills commandment ls life everlasting;
whatsoever I speak, therefore, even
ns the Father said unto me, so I
i speak." And nt tho very closo of nis
ministry, in His hlgh-prlcstly prnyor,
He declares to tho Father, concerning
Ills disciples, "I hnvo given unto them
the words which Thou gavest me."
