Mrs. de Saulles. who had maintained
an air of sclf-poswes.von throughout the
two week of the trial, received the.
erdict smilingly. She shook hands
with eaeli of the jurors as they left the
As Mrs. de Saulles left the court
room, a newspaper photographer
touched off a flash light. The shock
of the explosion, coupled with the
young woman's he ghtened nervous
tension, caused her to stagger, but she
was prevented from falling by Dr. J.
Sherman Wighi, her physiekm. She
was taken into a nearby room where
sho soon recovered.
"I'm so happy.'1 was her only com
ment, according to her attorney, Henry
A. Vterhart. .
The case went to trie jury at 5;f0
o'clock. Justice David F. Manning im
mediately announced a recess until
S:3 o'clock, during which the jurors
were: taken to a hotel ror dinner. They
returned at 7:40 o'clock and were at
once closeted to begin their delibera
tions. Mrs. de Saulles has stated heretofore
that as soon as she has cleared up all
right to the possession of young Jack
de Saulles she will take him back to
Chile, At Vienna Del Mar, "the vine
yard by the Sea" as her mother's
estate near Santiago. Chile, js calltS.
Mrs. de Saulles intends making her
home for the present. It was the pa
latial home which sue left in Hill to
become the wife of John de Saulles.
She was then 16 years of age.
There were not more than fifty per
sons aside from press representatives
and persons connected with the trial,
who heard the announcement of the
verdict. Mrs. Blanca Errazuriz, moth
er of Mrs. de Saulles was not m the
court room. She has been on the verge
of a nervous breakdown for several
days, according to Dr. Wight. Miss
Amalia Assazuriz. a sister, was the
only member of the defendant's family
present when the jury's finding was
made known. Her brother, William
w-as said to be at bis mother's bedside.
The mother, two daughters and son
will soon return to Chile, accompanied
by John L. de Saulles Jr., according
to a. statement by Attorney Uterhart,

been reached and Mrs. de Saulles was

mother's home early the same evening.
Mrs. de Saulles, on the witness stand
declared that when her former .hus

called an automobile and drove across
five miles of country side to de Saulles'
home, hoping to regain possession of

room, every eye was intently fixed
upon her. She stepped briskly, a smile
over spreading her features and a con
fident air characterized her manner.
A moment later the jurrors filed into
their box. Apparently there was some
thing significant in their manner fo
Attorney Uterhart leaned over to an
associate and was heard to say:
"Evarything's all right."
Every one stood up a' Hie justice
walked to the bench and without seat
ing himself said:
"I desire to. say that regardless of
what this verdict may be. no expres-1
sion of approval or disapproval will be
tolerated, -a There must be no raising
of voices fr.d every one must remain
seated until. the court is adjourned. No
one is to leave the room until that time.
Anyone violating these instructions will
be remanded to jail."
Each juror answered in the affir
mative when the clerk asked each if
he had agreed to the verdict. Mrs. de
Saulles was instructed to stand.
"Jurors, look upon the defendant
Defendant, look upon the jurors," the
clerk said: "Gentlemen, what is your
"Not guilty," came in chorus from
the jury box.
"The defendant is discharged," an
nounced the justice, rapping his gavel
to signal adjournment.
A short time later Mrs. de Saulles
motored to her home, "The Cross
Ways" which she had not visited since
the night of the tragedy and which
had been prepared in anticipation of
her coming. '
Attorney Uterhart announced that in
case members of the de. Saulles family
refused to yield custody of Mrs. de
Saulles' son he will apply on' Monday
for a writ of habeas corpus to compel
them to give him into his mother's
custody. - ;
The evidence presented to the jurv
included u plea on behalf of the de
fendant that she was mentally de
ranged when she did the shootine.
This was supported bv a mass of tes
timony admitted through alienists and
other medical experts. Hypothyroesis,
disease of the thyroid gland and af
fecting the brain and nerve centers,
formed the basis for ne Chilean heir
ess" claim of temporary mental irre-
A series of "physchic shocks'' result-
og irom ner domestic difficulties a
skull fracture sustained some rears
ago and which is alleged to have re
sulted in pressure on her brain which
was never relieved by a trephining od-
eration were other factors which these
experts swore contributed to this un
Other specialties, called bv the nrose-
cution, contradicted these assertions.
They maintained the alleged skull
fracture was not a fracture at all, but
that the depressed area of the skull
bone shown in an X-rav photograph of
Mrs. de Saulles' head merely marked
the "healing over" point of what is
commonly called "the baby spot." The
state's experts also said that a hypo
thyroid condition of the defendant,
such as her lawyers and physicians Bay
existed, would not produce the state of
mind in which Mrs. de Saulles claims
to have fired the revolver shots.
According to the defense's conten
tions, the shooting resulted from a con
tention regarding the custody of John
ij. ue &auues, jr., aged four and a half
years. When the boy's mother ob
tamed a divorce decree in 1916 it was
shown the court stipulated that the
father was to have custody of his son
during five months of each year and
the mother to have charge of the child
the other seven months1.
tuiosequentiy. however, the parents
agreed they would divide the custody of
ine ooy, eacn having him during alter
xoe ueiense maintained that on
August 3 the date of the shooting de
Saulles "borrowed" the boy, who was
then in his mother's care, explaining

sheviki before the i eviction sets in, but
there will be still many units which
will fight on. They may be forced to
retreat again and again' until their
brothers who are now Quitting under
false promises, realize that a separate
peace would mean the ruin of Kussia
for all time.
"One thing sure, however, there will
always be a Russian front and a ques
tion which may bear close considera
tion soon will be whether the Amer
ican army could not be employed ad
vantageously where the eastern front
remains firm. The people who have
the welfare of the country at heart
will never submit to the Bolsheviki
and as soon as they see an opportunity
they will overthrow them. When the
reaction sets in then is the time to
consider sending an American army.
Americans would have such a stimu
lating effect that the whole country
would rally to fight to make the world
safe for democracy."

brought up heavy re-inforcements for
yesterday's offensive and the further
attempts on their part to oust the Brit
ish from the newly won territory in.the
Cambrai sector were not unexpected.
The Germans in their northern at
tack met a complete reverse at the
hands of the counter attacking British
and the enemy suffered exceedingly
heavy losses both in ' men killed and
wounded. This attack extended from
a point just west of Moeuvres, about
Bourlon wood and thence down to the
region of Cantaing.
The man effort of the enemy was
centered between Moeuvres and Bour
lon wood. The assault began at about
twenty minutes of 9 o'clock or ap
proximately two hours later than the
opening of the southern offensive.
The enemy infantry went over the
ridge between Moeuvres and Bourlon
wood in dense masses, and as they
swept down the slopes toward the Ba-paume-Cambrai
road they came under
the fire of the British artillery. Tne
British gunners had so many targets
that they hardly knew where to begin
the shooting, but immediately poured
a veritable deluge of shells, among the
advancing German ranks, and the
British machine guns and rifles also
took part in the canguinary business.
The Germans fell by the scores as
they advanced over the ridge in close
formation, but they kept comming on.
British infantry men were thrown into
the battle line for a counter attack,
and hot fighting ensued. The Germans
succeeded in penetrating to the very
Bapaume-Cambrai highway northwest
of Graincourt. Dut inis was as iar as
they were able to get.
Notwithstanding their terrible losses
the Germans continue to rush over
the ridge in waves all day, and al
ways with the same result they
came under intense fire and were
mowed down in great numbers. Late
in the day British counter attacks
succeeding in pushing the enemy
back virtually to the same line they
The Germans today claim they
have captured a very small amount
of trenches a little in advance of
their old lines. -

Bourlon wood had held firmly and
the Germans had been forced to
abandon the attack for the day, after
sustaining heavy punishment. Sev
eral, hundred Germans were captured
in this northern offensive, and one
column of two hundred men came
rushing back to the British cags
today carrying their full equipment.
In the southern attack the Ger
mans had a great force of ten di
visions, six of whom were in the
front lines. The drive began here
at 7:30 a. rn. and the territory in
volved in the operations extended
from Crevecoeur to Vendhuile. The
Germans did not make a frontal at
tack all along this line but started
two. turning movements, on eitlur
side which were intended to converge
toward a common point.
During the time that the Germans
were in Geouzeaucourt they suc
ceeded in removing very little ma
terial, .because the British counter
attacks already had been started to
retake the place.
