Beattyviil Ky July 17The
jury in the HaigisCallahan trial for
the murder of Jas JB Marcnm
brought ina verdict of not guilty
after thirteen minutes deliberation
this morning The nature of the I
verdict fairly stunned those in tto
courtroom Mrs MarcUm sobbed
pitifully her slender frame shaking
with emotion Attorney Floyd Byrd
was too tanned to give out a state
ment The defendants themselves
shock hands with their friends b it
it did not seem to occur to them to
thank the jurors
Mr Adams in his closing speech
last night made his plea to the juro rsv
so personal not to allow sympathy
nor any other influence to waver
wayn
them that many persons in the
courtroom believed he was intimat
ing to them that he heard suspicious
suspiciousl vailed
0 J Barnett the foreman of the
jury said in the beginning that he
had both formed and expressed
opinions Both sides took him
knowing that he was cleared of a
murder charge in Breathitt in a case
which appeared to be plain self cC
tense Jim Mar um was his alt or
ney and Jim Hargis it is said rendered
dered most valuable assistance
Newspaper men who have attended
edhe
all the Marcum murder trials say the
case against Hargis and Callahan
was far stronger than was ever t hethe
case against Curt Jett and White
Ends a Long Fight
The verdict of not guilty in the
Marcum trial is the culmination of a
long and bitter fight in the courts in
an attempt to convict James Hargis
and Ed Callahan as chief conspirators
tors in one of the darkest crimes in
Kentuckys history James B Mar
cum was a mountain republican la V
yer of excellent standing He was
engaged three years ago as an at
torney in the contest against Hargis
and Callahan respectively Demo
cratic County Judge and Sheriff
elect to oust them from their offices
on an allegation of a corrupt elec
tion Much bitterness was aroused I
and frequent ruptures ocburred In
May 1903 Marcum was shot to death
athrt
from behind iu the Jackson court
house Curt Jett apd Tom White
iten
were convicted and given life sen
act
charged that they were the tools vastt
Callahan Hargis and others Jett
after his conviction confessed th
he shot Marcum and that his act y
was inspired by Callahan and Hargis
On the witness stand however hethe
repudiated the confession and saidfour
that he alone was responsible Thes
acquittal followed largely on this a
repudiationA
A jury of Clark county citizens re a
turned a verdict for 8000 damages u
year ago against Hargis on the aUec
gation that he had caused Marcum c
