That was the filtf
weirds that left Joe Et

Mass., court room thia
morning when the jury,
after being out all night,
brought in its verdict
finding Ettor, and his two
friends Antonio Caruso

not guilty of the murder
of n girl who was killed
during a riot at Lawrence,
Mass., last winter.
The defendants stood in the
iron cage where they have gat
during their lon,g trial when the
jury announced its verdict.
At a nod from .Turtj,-'' Quinn,
says the United Press dispatch,

the court room. Caruso tearfully
embraced his wife, while hun

of Ettor and Uiovannlttl. ,
Immediately thereafter ' the
three men were called before —
Judge Quinn again. Caruso was
released on $100 bail on addition- ■

Attorney George A. Moore of
Lob Angeles, of counsel for the
defense, declared the acquittal
was a great victory for organized
labor. He added:
"Justice has been carried out
in this case. It is only another
proof that an English speaking
jury will not convict for a purely
constructive crime. The verdict
is also a fine victory for free
As the prisoners awaited the
verdict each wore a red rose, a
gift from Mrs. Caruso. Kttor and
