After the Verdlrt Miller Inter
viewed In the Count .lull
Wallace tl, Miller, clerk of Justice Krue
ger'H court, was found guilty by a Jury
In the crlmmil cotiit nt Independence jrs
tcnlny of violating the election law nnd bis
punishment wns Hcd at two years In tho
slate penitentiary. The case wits glen
to the Jury ut Iter, o'clock yesterday after
noon uud ut .VI.", ;i verdict was leached.
Three ballots wcio taktti by the Jurors
In dctct mining the guilt of the defendant.
The III st ballot stood eleven for convic
tion and une for acquittal. The next bal
lot was unanimous for conviction nnd tho
thlnl ballot decided the punishment. The
July was polled then dlsclmiged.
When the cleik rend the verdict nil eyes
In the court room weru tiirmd tnwiml tho
defendant. Miller tin nod pate but did not
fcem to show nny nervousness until some
minutes afterward. He hud hoped for 1111
ne1111ltt.1l, his manner indlenllng that at
least there wniilil be a tiling Jury.
It was not until Deputy Matshul Itoss
summotied young Miller to take him to Jail
that lie ir.illr.ed fully tho Import of the
verdict. The pilsouer then gave way to
Mrs. Miller, wife of the prisoner, wns
not In tin. court room Allien the verdict
was brought In. During the afternoon she
was often by his side. A few- minutes be
fore the jurj was brou-nt In shn slipped
quietly Into the sliciilt's ofllee nnd there sbn
r'eceHed tiie news that her husband had
been found guilty. She became hysteilc.il
and remained so until her husband reached
Inn- side. Ten minutes ufter tin, erdlct Mill
er, with his young wife by bis side, was
escorted to the county Jail, pending tho mo
tion for n. new trial and In case Judge
Wofford refuses to grant It, an uppeal to
the supreme- court.
Miller's attorneys were not in the court
room at the time the veidlet was received.
They, like the defend.-int, believed that ho
would be acquitted or 11 hung Juiy would
The Jtiiors who sat in the case stated
yesterday that at no lime after rill the
eldence was In did they believe that oung
Miller was not guilty of the ciline charged.
The testimony in the case was not relied
on so much as the reeouls showing the
alphabetical enumei.itlon of voteis made
b joung Miller. No precinct on earth
would have voters come In to i voting
lmoth In alphabetical order, and this more
than an) thing else causeil them to nrrlve
at their conclusion. The Jury lor the most
part was made up of men beiond the mid
dle age ot life, and consisted of stuidy
All through the arguments estei day they
paid 1 lose attention to what the lawjers
had to cay. K.ich hit of evidence seemed
to be weighed by the Jurors carelully, but
tho crowning evidence as lo the guilt of
tho defendant was told by the poll books,
which were dliectly In charge ot Miller as
Judge of the election.
Three convictions mark the pathway of
the North end gang, which padded the reg
istration books then consummated their
crime by tbe aid of Imported Judges and
clerks. A. O. Clark, eh.wgud with illegally
abstracting ballots and illegal registiiitlon
In the Pitih pteeliiet. was the first con
viction. Nine mouths In jail with .1 line
of $.'.iv was the toward he received lor
parti, Ipatiug in the election frauds.
The next conviction came about at I,e
Ington. Halph Kiueger, brother of Dr.
Ktueger. was the next conspirator to feel
tho strong aim of the law. He was lound
guilty and given a tine of JIw, with costs
amounting to l.-'V.!.
Polloivlng close on Kruegei's conviction
conies the conviction of Miller, with tho
heaviest punishment that has been yet
meted out to the gang for Its hrcueu
cilines. In each cape appeals will or have
been taken. Vet moie of the gang will
he tried and will sutler the ron.scqiic nccs ,t
their crimes against tbe ballot box. The
trial of .Miller has .ittrnctcl much atten
tion and every cltort was iimiIu lo acquit
him of the crime charged.
The gieatest Intel est, lion ever, will be
taken by tbo.-e who aie slmituly indicted
by the grand jury and who an- v. t to ntiiiul
trial before tho bar of the iiliultial court
During the tl hit of Miller the statu relied
largely upon In iiuistantlal evidence, point
ing to the gulltv knowledge of Hie defend
nut In the slutting of the ballot l,oes of
the Sixth precinct. Prosecutor Ne.il, In
outlining the case lo the jurv, stated tlint
the state would show up the conspiracy
of a confederation of men cnveilng a term
of months piior to the November election.
The defendant Miller was a co-conspliator,
hoping to be and was the beneficial J of the
fraud by being appointed a clerk in Justice.
Kruegci's court, That he bid told atioiis
persons of these hopes and the tact that he
was appointed 111 curding to piomlse,
showed conclusively that tho defendant
participated nnd was a co-consplrator In
The election was a notorious one nnd
stood unparalleled among the political
, rimes ot tho state. Tho principal wit
nesses for th slate were II. Clay Arnold,
cx-iccorder; 1. li. Hrudhury, one of the
Indlited election manipulators, who had
tinned state's evidence; Mrs. Saiah Parker;
Mrs. Ilamm, at whose house .Miller board
ed pi lor 10 the Hie, Hon uud to whom li
proclaimed that Ills pi ice of icsldeiiet,
should bo kept quiet; W. C Mnote, who
t stilled as to the Illegal registration; Dr.
Hitter, of fJ Main stn-et, who lestliled as
to people who weio leglstercd from his

Dutlng the trial tho defense attempted
to make out Miller's Iniiocenco by ion
neetliig even body else with the frauds ex.
except the defendant. Miller's previous
good chatneter was al-o lu.ido a scapegoat
to his bad diameter won as an (lection
judge. Tim verdict, resulting at the end
of a long trial, was smother victory for the
