j,-g Okleaxs, March 14. The tria: o"

Chief of Tolice Hennessey at 11:35 o'clock
on the night of Oct. 15, which has occu

the criminal district courts since Feb. 16,
wss concluded yesterday afternoon, tie
jury bringing in a verdict of not guilty as
to six of the accused and failing to asr?e
u!a verdict as to the other thi-ee.
When the jury handed in their verdict
Jmii-'p Haker looked at it for some rro
oients before he handed it over to Min ute
Clerk Screven. There was apprehensive
lilence while these preliminaries were go
Jeered by the Mob.
The jury looked more concerned than
gnyof the prisoners. Their faces were
deatly pale and showed plainly the ef'ect
of their long deliberations. Chief Clerk
Screven read t he verdict in a firm vcice.
Asthe verdict was read there was an audi
ble expression of surprise and dissatisfac
tion. Judge Baker immediately di
charged the jurymen and ordered the
prisoners remanded, as there was still an
other charge against them. The ecurt
then adjourned. When the jurymen left
the court room they were surrounded by
reporters, but none of them would discuss
the rise or how they reached the verdict.
They kept together until they reached
Lafayette square, where they were jered
t by a :rowd who had already learned of
Organizing the Law of the Mob.
There is great indignation throughout
the city over the verdict. As for the ot her
indictment against the accused, it is for a
lesser offense, and as it concerns the sf.me
transaction, the district attorney will
have to enter nolle prosequi. There haa
