The verdlcl of the Jury In Ihe case of
ex-Inspecton Dennis Sweeney, John J,
Mirilla. James v. Thompson snd
.iam?s i:. Hussey probably ?ill bs
known to-night. District Attorney
Whltmsn expects the conviction ot all

Thompson, with a i>are possibility ?f

that even if ths state had presented a
less formidable case 'in- failure <>f the

Th?- strength of th?- state's case woe

Sr.l? snd Captain Thomas W. Walsh,
Was assail?-.! in a pen? ral way; Snd
this attack was more in ti-.?- nature "f
an attempt t?> show tii.-in unworthy ??f
belief rather than an effort to break
?i?i\\ n their testimony.
Routs and Newell Attacked.
Jacob Rouas and I iward Jackson
Newell, the lawyers who testified
against th?- four ?nsp?-? t..rs, were tot

Like Mr. Wellman, he mad? the- most
<?f th?- character witnesses rallad hy the
dertmc?'. Moth attorney? told of the
?'long und honor.?hi?:" <ur??rs of the
four BCCUSOd m?-n on th? police force
?nd spoke feelingly of their families.
"Th? se men,'' said Mr. Hat tic, ' Iliad?
Unpopular by calling are not mi? h un

He BPOkS ??i Sweeney's record in the

against It?that of a fln<- of a half day?

"Th?- Conviction <>f those men means
more than B COnvfc tion of the ordinary

A conviction would bs as ssrlotui to
them as though y?.u condemned th?in
