Benton Ky June 20 The jury
in the Burnett Phelps case was dis
missed this afternoon at 2 oclock
after having been held together for
twentysix hours they reported I
that it was impossible to agree It
was ascertained that the jury was
evenly divided six being for convic
tion and six for acquittal
Burnett Phelps is charged with
participating in the raid on Birming
ham in March when John Scruggs
an old negro was killed and his
infant grandchild was so badly shot
it died the next day Several ne
groes were whipped
The defense relied on alibi evi
dence to acquit their client Both
sidesmadeout a strong case Cow
monwealths Attorney John G Lov
ett made a strong speech denoun
cing such lawlessness as night riding
in strong terms He pleaded with
the jury to do its duty and send
Phelps to the penitentiary Attor
neys C K Wheeler and W A Ber
ry of Paducah also put uP strong
arguments for their client Attorney
Wheelers speech being flowery
William Reader also spoke for the
commonwealth and Attorney Jack
Fisher for the defendant
The Phelps case was the first tried
in Marshall county andit is considered
ered a victory for the defense The
commonwealths attorney is hopeful
though of convicting some of the
men indicted and he has a large
number to fork on
While Attorney Berry was speak
ing he made a remark that was ap
proved by a large number of the
audience applauding The common
wealths attorney wasquick to arise
and asked the court Judge I wish
you would stop these night riders
from applauding the speaker
There were some murmurs of disap
proval at the request but Judge
Reed promptly informed the audi
ence that a repetition would mean
jail sentences for the guilty
The case of Sam Collie charged
with the same offense was finished
at five oclock this afternoon and
given to the jury The evidence in
this case was practically the same as
in the Phelps case Otis Blick being
the most important witness Col
lies defense is about the same as in
the other case both defendants pre
senting strong alibis A verdict of
not guilty was returned

v The Court of Appeals Saturday
handed down a decision in the Smith
Renshaw case that in effect removes
all doubts and declares John M
Renshaw Sheriff by the operation
of the Statutes The original case
was to come up yesterday before
Judge Cook on its merits but was
passed until tomorrow for the ex
amination of the opinion of 2q type
written pages The opinion is con
curred in by ORearBarkerLassing
and Carroll Nunn Settle and
Hobson dissent It passes upon al
most every possible phase of the
case and declares that a vacancy
existed and that Judge Prowse filled
it in a lawful manner If Judge
jQopk should hold David Smith Sher
iff still the appeal would go before
Judge Barker again and his decision
in twenty days would of course re
affirm the opinion in the writ of pro
hibition and injunction cases No
matter what further steps ar taken
it is not possible for Mr Smith to
hold onto the office The original
case might be appealed but Ren
shaw would be Sheriff in the intef
im In any event the decision
makes an election necessary and the
Democrats are already expressing a
determination to nominate candi
dates for both Sheriff and County
Judge to be voted for in November
If Mr Smith cannot run for Sheriff
he may be a candidate for County
Judge If Judge Cook decides to
accept the last decision as settling
the entire controversy he will prob
ably dismiss the case in Circuit
Court and give the office to Renshaw
at once and a hot campaign would
at once open up
