Massachusetts Textile Strike Case Ends
With Acquittal of the Three
Men en Trial.
Salem, Mass.. Nov. 26. "Not guilty,"
is the verdict of the jury in the case of
Joseph J. Ettor, Arturo GiovanuitU
and Joseph Caruso, charged with the
murder of Anna Loplzzo, who was killed
in the Lawrence textile strike riot last
When the three men had heard the
words freeing them from the charge,
they embraced and kissed each other.
Giovannitti then sprang to his feet.
"Gentlemen of the Jury," he said, his
face beaming with joy; "in the name of
justice, truth and civilization, I thank
As he sat down, the court interpreter,
Alfred Saeco, arose for Caruso, and
"Mr. Caruso desires me to say that
he thanks you."
Ettor, the leader of the strike at
Lawrence and chief center of interest
in the case that has aroused world-wide
attention, addressed the jury:
"May it please the jury, I thank you
not- only for myself but In the names
of my companions. I also thank the
court for the manner in which this trial
has been conducted. The thanks we
offer are not only ours,, but thanks in
the name of the working class"
The jury, which for ' six weeks had
listened to the evidence, retired at
12:43 oclock yesterday afternoon.
"The evidence relating to these two
defendants, Ettor and Giovannitti," said
the court, "does not warrant conviction
for murder in the first degree, because
it is not contended that either pre
meditated the death of any one."
For Caruso, the instructions did not
preclude the electric chair.
Goshen. N. T., Nov. 26. After delib
erating for more than 14 hours, the
Jury in the case of Burton W. Gibson,
charged with the murder of his client,
Mrs. Rosa Menschik Szabo. reported to
justice Tompkins today that it could
not agree on a verdict.
While Gibson sat in his cell last night
awaiting word from the jury room, his
wife, worn by her long vigil, was rest
ing within call- at a .nearby cottage,
after having paced up and down in
'front of the courthouse for some time
in the rain. . "
The court had eliminated manslaugh
ter from its charge and directed that
one of three verdicts be returned, mur
der in the first degree, second degree
or acquittal.
In the courtroom at the time was a
detective armed .with a warrant on
which Gibson would be rearrested in
case he was acquitted of the murder
charge. This warrant charged Gibson
with the larceny in 1910 of $17,000 from
Hugh Trainer, an aged awning maker
and a former client of the prisoner.

rlotlAn w-oa nFvntyail Vnn.i, A,Aflna,
at th nurthnSiu. t nw .n-t
tion includes -employes, investors in
railroad. stocks and the officials, of the
railroads. Its purpose is to obtain bet
ter railroad legislation in Texas for the
railroads and to obtain an amendment
to the stock and bond law allowing
the railroads more latitude in con
structive work.
This association has more than 66
local branches in the United States
and the El Paso branch has a charter
membership ot 511. The ' total mem
bership of the association throughout
the state is 3800. C. P. Curtis, an engi
neer on the M. K. 8t T. railroad, and
A. B. Honeycult, a conductor on the
Santa. Fe, have been here organizing
the local branch and both spoke at the
organization meeting at the courthouse
Monday evening. Mr. Honeycult held
tnat tne xexas stock and bond law
was an obstacle to the development of
railroads in Texas and urged a law
which would benefit the railroads and
public alike.
Resolutions were passed by the
meeting endorsing the principles of the
national association. The resolutions
also condemned the efforts to pass
state legislation at the next session of
the legislature for the reduction of the
passenger train rate. This was held
to be detrimental to the interests of
both railroads and publicand as a move
by certain interests for furthering .
their own Interests. The state senators
and representatives were urged in the
resolution to work against the enact
ment of such measures and the meet
ing endorsed the Democratic state
convention at San Antonio for adopt
ing a plank in its platform favorable
to the railroads. The resolution held
that a proper amendment to the stock
and bond law would have the effect of
stimulating railroad construction and
urged that the legislative representa
tives work for such an amendment.
