BEAT1E IS GUILTY IS JURY'S VERDICT (Continued from Page One) men of simple life, who each morning during the trial sang hymns and strove to forget the story of disslpltlon as related on the witness stand. What had been generally predicted was true, namely, their minds were well made up before they left the courtrbom W. L. Burgess, a square jawed man with an earnest face, was elected foreman. They balloted and it was no surprise, they afterwards declared, that all voted alike. They prayed that they might not take a life wrongfully and they opened their con scilences to one another for nearly an hour, so that they might go back to the courtroom firmly: .convinced of their-duty and et one mind. The Boy With leon Nerve. In the courtroom meantime sat Henry Clay Beattie, Jr., the sporting page of a newspaper spread before him. But he did not read long. He folded the paper and concelaed his face In it. Those who sat near the boy of iron nerve observed a twitching of his lips as though moving in prayer as he sat with closed eyes awaiting the return of the jury. He raised his head for a moment, dropped the paper again and began reading. Then he whispered a few words to his father and brother. It was for them he felt and to them he counselled cheerfulness. It was nearly dark in the courtroom when the jury returned. Three oil lamps added gloom to the scene. The red rays of the setting sun streaked through the windows. On every sill rested a telegraph Instrument and op erators tensely waited for the verdict. A thick mass of faces rising In an In cline to the shabby calling stared at Ithe jurymen. Famous jurists looked down from soiled paintings. 'In the minds of the gaping crowd remained the ring of the powerful speech of the prosecutor, who denounced the man "who exchanged the glow of virtue for passion's feeble tapers." The court asked the prisoner to rise. He calmly stood up and waited. "Have you gentlemen agreed on a verdict?" asked Judge Watson. "Guilty!" "We have," said Foreman Burgess, and almost at the same instant that Judge Watson asked: "What is your verdict?" all 12 men yelled "Guilty." Unversed in law and the forms of a murder trial, the jurymen had not specified what degree of murder. Asked -what degree, Mr. Burgess an swered, "Guity as Indicted." Under Virginia practice, murder Is presumed to be second degree unless otherwise specilfed. It was Incumbent on the jury to fix the aegree, so Judge Watson advised the jurymen to con fer again on the point. Seven min utes later they returned with the ver dict of "Murder in the first degree." The prisoner stood erect and mo tionless. His face, in color a yellow ish green throughout the day, was Immobile. The light of a lanmp cast a dreary shadow on his upturned chin as he faced the jury. His eyelids sagged, but did not blink. In steady gaze he held his eyes on the faces of the 12 men who had pro nounced his punishment, as if to pene trate their minds and determine the reason why. It was not a resentful expression, however, and when the court asked if the prisoner had any thing to say he answered: "I have nothing to say." He then sat down. The perfunctory motions for a new trial were made by counsel for the defense. The usual granting of permission to argue the point was denied, as Judge Watson, in a stern voloe, declared that all trial rulings of the court had been on com paratively unimportant details and in no way could have Influeneed the ver' diet. A stay of execution wa grannt ed, however, in order to give counsel an opportunity to amply. toga s Lat of -ti **rQ *tle ti o appeas meneti in ovember, Judai * aban deliyared an Imprea shle peech to the Jrlsonew. He told how the younl msa had stained his own life and that ot the community iii which tie lived by his sordid aots. When the trial first started, said Judge Watson, he had hoped that Virginli might be cleated of. the crime for which not only the state felt shame, but which the entire country depre. cated. Re had hoped that the coun sel would prove the defendant Inno cent, but the evidenice he regarded as convincing and overwhelming. "The court in this trial," saild Judge Watson. "has endeavored In Its de clsions to lean toward the side of the prisoner and In its aCharge to the jury, as well, attempted to give him the benefit of every doubt and every op. portunity to establish his Innocence. The rulings mostly have been not on matters of law, but on small questions of fact. November 24. "You have had a fair and impartial trial Mr. Beattle, and the jury has done what It Considers its duty. Therefore, you have been convicted of murder in the first degree and No vember 24, between the hours of sun rise and sunset, yotu must forfeit your life to the community. May God have mercy on your outL" A moment later, by the side of his father and his brother, Douglas, their heads bowed In grief, walked young Beattle in the darkness toward his cell. Just then a sharp report and flash rent the thick blackness outside the courthouse. "My God!" exclaimed Judge Watson, as through his mind flitted the same thought that startled hundreds around the convicted uxoriclde. But It was not another tr.gedy. The prisoner was seen walking calmly on. The detonation was an unusually heavy charge of photographer's flash liht. The erowd lingered at the jail and peered into the cell, illuminated by a single lamp. On the bed with his head In his hands eat Beattle, his father and brother beside him. Jailer Cogwill sent the ourlous away. Only a few prisoners saw the prisoner break down and weep in the solitude of the cell. An hour later the hamlet was deserted. A few hundred yards from the jail In a small hotel, 12 men gath ered their belopgings in silence and one by one they drove away into the darkness to their simple homes.
