In Prison was the Verdict
of the Jury In tho
Many people are disposed to cen
sure the jurors for the sentence, but
of course tbis is the case in most all
murder cases Twelve honest men
sat in the jury box and heard the
evidence on both sides from start to
finish and the speeche 1 from the at
torneys lor the Cimmonwealth ard
those lor the defendant. They had
the instructions Irom the court by
which tht) should render their ver
diet, the 'aw and evidence having
been thoroughly presented and it i'
quite possible that no other persons
save the attorneys and connection ol
the deceased and the defendant heard
all the evidence in the case, therefore
It appears that those jurors were bet
ter prepared to render a verdict than
those persons whose information was
hear say. While the verdict of the
jury may have come as a surprise to
most people who had heard of the
Iray, yet the character of the jurors
was snch to elicit the confidence of
every citizen. The jury considered
it a case oi manslaughter, that it was
all done in the heat of passion, the
penalty for which is from one to
twenty-one years in prison.
The cause of brave Sam Casebier's
death was whiskey, which no one
dares deny, and every citizen having
voted for that damnable stuff to be
sold in Hartford may assume a part
ol the responsibility of the tragedy
which occurred one year ago.
