The dold waves mostly come from

Jury Returns Verdict In Favor of
the Defendant in $50,000
(By Associated Press.)
Oklahoma City, Okla., Feh. 18.?Uni
ted State? Senator Thomas P. Gore
today wa? exonerated of charges of
improper conduct by a verdict in his
favor returned in district court here
in the suit for $:>0,000 damages insti
tuted by Mr-.. Minnie E, Bond, of Okla
homa City.
The verdict was returned at 5:40 p.
m., ten minutes after the case was
given to the jury. Only one ballot
was taken.
"We find," the Jury stated in the
verdict, "the evidence submitted by
the plaintitT entirely insufficient upon
which to base a Bult; that said evi
dence wholly exonerates the defen
dant, and had the defendant, at the
conclusion of the plaintiff's evidence,
announced that he desired to intro
duce no evidence and rested his case,
our verdict would have been the same
in that event as now returned by us,
in favor of the defendant."
"Despite the efforts of baiiffs to
maintain order when last words of
the Jury the verdict "in favor of the,
defendant" were read, the crowd,'
which taxed the capacity of the court
room, turned into a cheering throng,
orderly, but no less determined to
give vent to their feelings.
Those displeased by the verdict
forced their way to the doors and
left in ellence amid the bantering of
the senator's friends.
Senator Gore heard the jury's de
cision without change of countenance.
Mrs. Gore was the first to grasp his
hand. When she torhed and shft9kY
hands with Henr^'^.Caril'e^'tef.;i0t^?
foreman, tears were'bn the cheeks crj
both herself and the aged fftrmjsr. *
' "The verdict confirm
triith will triumph
Gore. "I never for a
the'outcome at the hands of the jury."
" From the time the jurors left the
room t? prepare their verdict unt'l
the demonstration was under way,
Mrs. Bond sat !n silence, leaning on
a tabla, and scribbling on a piece of
paper. She seemed In no haste to
leave the room until she wa s ap
proached by her attorneys' when she
arose and walked away with them and
her ftuafeacd.
