The Trial of the Notorious BandH. y'vanlc James Its Progress and Result The Jury After Short Deliberation Render a Ver dict of Not GuiltyTwo Other Counts to be Tried at the Oetober Term. THE DEFENSE. Gallatin, Mo., Aug-. 31. Shortly after the opening of court this morning General Shelby appeared and pro ceeded to make an apology for certain irreg ularities in his conduct the day previous while on the witness stand, and after listening to a rebuke from the Court and settling a fine of ten dollars which had been entered up against him, withdrew. The testimony for the de fense then proceeded. James S. Demasters, Justice bf the Peace of Richmond, testified that he officiated at the inquest on Wood Hite, and that Mrs. Bolton then testified that she had not seen Frank James for two years. James C. Mason, a neighbor of the Fords, testified that Captain FoYd told him that he did not think Frank James was in the Blue Cut or Winston robberies, as Frank had left the bal ance of the boys and settled down: had had conversations with Mrs. Ford and old man Ford to the same effect, the latter stating that Frank James was not in the State at the time of the Winston affair. Ananias Duval testified that old man Ford told him just after Jesse James was kiilecLthat he had never seen Frank and did not know when he was in the State. W. D. Rice, living near Richmond, testified that Willie Bolton was working for him just after the Wood Hite inquest and that Willie of his own motion told him that he had told a story at the Coroner's inquest and that his mother made him do it John T. Samuels, half-brother of Frank James, testified that he last saw Frank before the Winton robbery in the year 1S76, when he was at home in Clay County; next saw him at Independence after his surrender; was home all through the summer of 1RS1; saw Jese in May, 1881, at home in company with Dick Lid dell. He stated that they had come from Ken tucky; they arrived at night. After they got there mother asked Jesse where Frank was. He replied he had left Frank in Kentucky, and that Frank w as in bad health and was talking of going South. Mother then spoke to Dick Liddell about Frank, and he made about the same response. Jesse remained at home for two or three months off and on; last saw him there about the last of July or the first of Au gust. During these three months I saw Dick Liddell, Clarence and Wood Hite and Charley Ford about the place. There was a striking family resemblance between Wood Hite and Frank James; saw nothing of Frank all that summer. Mrs. Zerelda Samuels, mother of Frank Jamas, testified that Jesse came home hi May, 1881. Dick Liddell was with him. "They said they eame from Kentucky, I asked where 'Buck' was, that being the name I call Frank. He replied that he had left Frank in Ken tucky in bad health. I said 'Son, you know he's dead. You may as well tell me first as last,' I then turned to Liddell and asked him, and he said Frank was alive, but was in Kentucky and was in bad health. During that summer Clarence and Wood Hite and Dick Liddell and Charley Ford were at the house frequently. Frank was not there during that summer, and I did not see him from the time, seven years ago, when Sheriff Broome and others came and shot him, till I saw him after his surrender. Jim Cummings was at the house some time in Juile of 1881. I did not at, that time know where Frank was, but thought he was dead. I am fifty-nine years old, and have six children. I was in my fif tieth year when my arm was shot off and my Jif tls boy was killed." Being asked whether, when the men left the house after the Win ston robbery, they did not take some strange apparel with thorn, she said: "Yes; I gave them a dress and apron and a bonnet, so that one of the jrentlemen could pass off as a lady and you all couldn't catch 'em." Allen Palmer, a brother-in-law of Frank James, testified to returning to hia home fn Wichita Fulls, Texas, about the 1st of August. 1S.8I. and found Frank James there with his family; he wore nothing but a mustache on his face: at that time there was no railroad nearer than Fort Worth, one hundred miles from where he lived; Frank seemed to be kind of ill; said his lungs were affected. Mrs. S. Palmer, wife of above witness.testlfled that Frank James was at her home at Wichita Falls, Tex., from June, 1881. to July 1st. and after an absence of about four weeks return ed the latter part of July and left finally in September. He talked about surrenderinir, saying he would like to have some of his friends negotiate with the Governor of Mis souri. Frank James was placed on the stand to testify in his own behalf and gave a detailed account of his movements from the winter of ISTti till his surrender, stating among- other things that he was in Texas during the sum mer of 1881 at the residence of his sister, and heard of the Winston and Blue Cut robberies while on a trip into the Indian Nation and immediately returned to his sister's' feeling siue his nmne would be connected with it and it behooved him to be amonjr friends. He Eositiycly denied the statements made by Dick iddoll connecting him with the Winston rob bery. Gallatin, Mo., Sept. 1. The prosecution, in rebuttal, devoted some time to breaking down the evidence of S. T. Brosius, the witness who -jras on the train when the robbery occurred. He was first re called and denied having told that he was so seated that he could not describe the robbers or that he paid to another person one of tl e;n lo ked like he was fifteen feet high. Witt C33 was questioned as to conversations with A. M. Irving, Boyd, Dudley, William M. Itcstuph, K. W. Dennis and others, but failed to admit that the conversation alluded to in the impeaching questions propounded to him had actually occurred, though he miftht pos sibly, he thought, have had such talk in a Jocular way. The above named parties, to gether with George Tujrg, R. L. Toiiilin and B. B. Yates testified that the witness had made such statements to them. Mrs. Sarah K. Hite testified that she knew Wood Hite since 1878; lived with him in the jamc house for four years; he was very un tidy in his toilet; he had no literary tastes; he didn't read books any ; he read newspapers a food deal. Frank James, as to his dress, was cry neat; do not think Wood and Frank James resembled each other. Silas Norris testified that he knew Wood Hite for four or five years; he didn't resemble Frank .lamps to any great extent: Wood Hite was five feet nine or ten inches high, with lijiht hair and full suit of whiskers; would take defendant to be six feet high; never saw Frnnk James but once at Mrs. Hite's; have tcen seeing him and looking at him here. Major J. H. McGee, United States Marshal, testified that he was in the smoking car at the Jme of the Winston roblx-ry. The conductor was standing right by him when he was shot; there were three men in that car, two doing the shooting and one cutting the bell rope: ihe one that shot Westfall he never saw until he saw him with his pistol in hand. Cross-examined 1 was sitting in the center of the car, on the right hand side of the aisle; leard the pistols crack and the call of "Down! !own '" 1 looked up and there was one man .landing In front of me with a pistol In each hand and another on my left, just in rear of the conductor. The man that reached to cut the bell rope was standing about two feet from the man who did the firing from the forward end of the car, and about half the length of the car from the man who killed the conductor. I saw no pistols in the hands of the man who cut the bell rope. After the shooting of Westfall, the conductor, the man who shot him went to the forward end of the ear, and all three of the robbers passed out of the forward door. I didn't see any one of them pass to the i ear end of the car, but 1 saw one of them returning from the rear of the car. When the conductor pulled the bell-rope the train slacked but did not stop. At the trestle, three-quarters of a mile from Winston, the train seemed to be stopped by the air-brake, and the i went forward for about another half-mile. After the three men went out one remained on the front platform and fired through the car. Here the State rested and closed Its case, and after a couple of unimportant witnesses were heard in surrebuttal, both sides rested. The arguments will commence Monday, each side being limited to eight hours. Gallatin, Mo., Sept. 3.

The speeches of to-day were as follows: For the State, on opening, by W. D. Hamilton, Prosecuting Attorney Tor Da viess County: for the defense speeches by John M. Glover, of St. Ioui.. and C T. Gar ner, of Richmond, Ray County, Mo. Gallatin, Mo., Sept. 4, The whole of this day has been devoted to argument in theJame? case. The first speech was that by Mr. Hicklin for the State a very plain, forcible, logical speech. This was fol lowed by one from Mr. Glover for the de fense. The main speech of the day was that by Mr. Phillips for the defense. He spoke, for three hours and was listened to with the greatest attention, not a person leaving the court while he was speaking. To-morrow Judge Shanklin speaks for the State and Mr. Johnson for the defense. Mr. Wallace will close in behalf of the State. Gallatin, Mo., Sept. 5, Judge Shanklin occupied the morning on behalf of the prosecution, demonstrating from the evidence the probability of Frank James being connected with the Winston robbery. He claimed there was proof positive of the defendant's participation in the rob bery and murder. As for the alibi, he dis missed that in very brief temrs as being based entirely on the testimony of interested wit nesses. Mr. Johnson in his speech in the afternoon followed a line of argument like thia: That the case was either one of murder in the first degree or nothing, and it did not contain any murder in the second degree: that the de fendant had all along been trying to form new associations for himself, chiefly aided by the persuasions of his wife; that he had worked hard in Tennessee, then broken with the gang and gone to Texas, sending his wife to Missouri to nego tiate a surrender; that Liddell testified against the accused from motives of personal safety; that there were but four men at the Winston robbery, and that the defendant was not one of those four; that the mere proximi ty of Frank James to the scene of the robbery as detailed by the State's witnesses did not prove actual participation in the crime; that Liddell was to be believed when he told Gov ernor Crittenden how Frank had remonstrated with Jesse James for killing any one on the train rather than when he stated from the wit ness stand how Frank had remarked that he believed lie had shot one man, as he had seen him drop; that the State had no case if Lid dell's testimony wits taken out of it: that all were liable to be mistaken In their identifica tion of other specimens of the race, and that the alibi set up was a good one as measured by its apparent weakness and the interest of tho parties supporting it, because it would have been easy to get fifty men with perjured testimony to locate the defendant at the time of the Winston robbery in Texas, Colorado or any other part of the country. Gallatin, Mo., Sept. 6. Mr. W. H. Wallace, Prosecuting Attorney for Jackson County, commenced his closing argument on behalf of the State in the case against Frank James at a few minutes after nine this morning. His speech was a most ex haustive one and was the great feature of the trial, good judges declaring they never heard it surpassed for vigor, evenness, power and eloquence. At its close Judge Goodman charged the jury who then retired in chargo of the bailiffs. Shortly before four o'clock tho bailiffs In charge of the jury were notified.' that they were ready to submit a Verdict, and when court reopened at four o'clock Judge Good man was surprised by the information. The defendant was brought into court with his face pale and impassive as the day the trial began. He was altended by his wife, whose face wore an expression of suffering that made it painful to look upon. The hall was not at all crowded, as few had expected a verdict so soon. The jurors filed in and took their seats, all of them keeping their faces fixed on the court. Judge Goodman put the usual question. After the roll had been called and the verdict was submitted tho Judge read aloud: "We, the Jury, find tho defendant not guilty, as charged in the in dictment." Loud applause followed and some of tho au dience threw up their hals, while great confu sion ensued. Amid it all Frank James sut looking at the Court without even a change of color or a tremor of hand, just as he had looked at the speakers and witnesses all through the case. 11 is wile's face, however, was changed in a second from an expression or terror to one of radiant joy. Counsel for tho defense smiled and wore the plumes of victory well. The Stale's attorney, Mr. Hamilton, and Judge Hicklin looked gloomy and spoke not. The jury was then discharged and they quietly left the court-room. When some degree of order had been restored and one man had been brought be fore the Court and given a chance to beg off for throwing up his hat, and when the gay assemblage of ladies had moderated their Jubilant buzz to a reasonable degree, the Court suggested that there were two more cases on the docket. The Westell case and the one wherein the robbery of the Winston train ii charged without any killing. They will bo tried at the October term. The court then adjourned and the prisoner was taken back to Jail in seemingly the same tate of mind as when he left it. A Dry Drain. The autopsy on the body of Robert Hart, the one-legged notion dealer, who died on the evening of the Fourth, after being struck by Thomas Fogarty, a Pa cific street saloon-keeper, brought to light a most interesting and, for some time, puzzling study in anatomy. The Eost mortem was conducted by Drs. evingston, Dennis and Blaeh. Every organ, including heart, lungs, liver, etc., was found to be perfectly normal and healthy, and the most minute in spection of the spinal cord and other vital parts failed to reveal any cause of death. The absence of any wound or abrasion puzzled the physicians, and it was not until the brain was reached that the mystery was solved. When the seat of knowledge was reached it was discovered that there was not a particle of blood about the brain and that it had been literally paralyzed by the desertion of the lluius. The fatality is technically known as anaemia, or pri vation of blood in the capillary vessels. The brain. Dr. Levingston explained to a Chronicle reporter, is nourished by the corpuscles of the blood. A rush or de sertion of blood from the head conse quently loaves insufficient nutrition for the brain to carry on its functions, and a paralysis of the heart occurs. This will cans- death in from three and a half to five minutes. Fainting fits are a form of ansemia, but seldom of suffi cient severity to result fatally. In Hart's case, the disease, if such it can be term ed, was not due to force or violence, but to either emotion or the shock of Fogar ty's sudden attack. right may have produced it, but from the prowess at tributed to the deceased by his friends it is more likely that the emotion was one of rage. Although possessing but one leg. Hart was powerfully built, and at a game of fisticuffs was a match for any two ordinary men along the water front, provided that he could secure a prop for his back in order that he might not be toppled from his single under standing. He scarcely knew what fear was, so self-reliant was he, so that the responsibility of his demise rests with the shock or with his violent exhibition of impotent rage at being literally "knocked out" by the suddenness of Fogarty's blow.

How It Was Received by the Citlrens of Gallatin and Other riint-rroiioniiwil an Outrage on Justice A TcHtiinoiil.il to Prosecuting Attorney Wnllnoe Polite ly Dei-lined by That Gentleninn. Gallatin, Mo., Sept.0. Within a few minutes alter rendering their verdict the Frank James jury became invisible. They paid their board bills and left for home, and one at least was sar castically invited to come again and be a juror at the next trial. Their sympathisers disappeared with them, and all Gallatin's proper citizens at once became an indigna tion meeting. Groups of men gathered on every curb and corner and denounced the verdict as an outrage on law and order. A conviction had hardly been looked for, but a hung jury was deemed a probable sad an acquittal an impossible thing. Yet this jury took but two ballots to arrive at a verdict, the first standing eleven to one for acquittal, the second unanimous for acquittal. People here can not under stand how this verdict was arrived at. and rtimors of curious import in regard to the jury which have been floating round for days past were suddenly revived. It was remembered that live names of the panel of forty had been on the list of jurors desired to be summonod by the defense. At the time it was debated whether to have the entire panel rejected and a new list summoned by an officer other than the Sheriff, or to strike the five names oir in t li State's challenges. The latter course was adopted with some misgiving. It was also remembered how a man had ridden through the western part of the county nod notified certain parties friendly to James to be on hand for jury service. It was remembered, too, how one of the twelve had, before be ing summoned, stated that no matter whnt the evidence might be he would vote for acquittal if on the jury. Another of the twelve was said to have been brought, by the defenso so that he could be pla -ed on the panel. Tho feeling against BheraE Crosier, who summoned the special venire, has been pretty strong from the beginning of the trial, and that officer has been most heartily 01 iticised to-night. - Long before supper time the sympathy ot Gallatin's best citizens, in behalf of law and order, took a practical form. A fund was raised, chiefly through the exertions of T. B. Yates, of the Farmers' Exchange Hank, and George Tuggle, of tho Daviess County Savings Association, to present Mr. Wallace with something that would remind him of the esteem that Gallatin's citizens had for tho man who had so vigorously prosecuted James. Nearly all the property owners and merehnuts of Gallatin mot at Judge McDougall's law office about. 8:Jt o'clock. D. Hai-field Davis made tho pre sentation speech, and handed Mr. Wallace a gold watch on behalf of the citizens of this place, in appreciation of his services in the prosecution of the most famous crimi nal case ever tried in this State. Mr. Wal lace responded, declining the offered gift be cause he was a public officer and not yet through with the task of fitting a burden of legal punishment on Frank James' shoul ders, and assuring his friends that ho val ued their offer of a present equally with the present itself, but treasured the feeling which prompted it above all else. After a few words by Judge Shanklin, a resolution was offered by Dr. Black to apply tho money in printing Mr. Wallace's closing speech. This was carried, and Messrs. Davis, Black and Yates were made a com mittee on that business. The meeting than adjourned. Tnere are three other cases here against Frank James one for being accessory to the killing of Westfall by Jes se James; one for the Sheets murder in connection with the robbery of the Gallatin Bank, and one for simple larceny at Win ston. If he is acquitted here on all these, there is still the Blue Cut case to be tried at Independence, and the North field and other cases after that, so that this alleged chiv alrous bandit is far from free. Kansas Cm, Sept. 6. The verdict in the James case was re ceived with great interest in this city. Tho report flew from mouth to mouth till it bn came the sole theme on the streets, in thn saloons, at the hotels, among business men and lawyers, in police and city circles, and, in fact, among all classes of people. It was talked about to-night to the exclusion of other topics. Some declared that no other result could have been reached; that there was no evidence to convict; that the state ments of witnesses for the State were not worthy of belief. One in a thousand thought that James hail received simple justice. A great majority of the people, however, said that the verdict of acquittal was an outrage which would add to Missouri'.! shame in many instances. .IKFKKHSON ClTV, Mo., Sept. fl. The news of the acquittal of Frank James was received here between four and five o'clock this afternoon, and immediately spread through the town. Among thoso who have watched the progress of the trihl closely the outcome of it was not a sur prise. Some said they were in hones h would be convicted, others were glad of his acquittal, while others made it the occasion for reviving the epithet, "poor old Mis souri." Governor Crittenden, when ap proached and asked if he had anything to say regarding it, replied that he had not. "It is the verdict of a jury," ho said, "and it would be improper for me to comment on it." iNOTArJACijLis, Ipm., Sept. .

Bob Ford, the slayer of Frank James' brother Jesse, is now playing t the Zoo Theater, in this city, in a play entitled "The Brother's Oath." He was seen by a reporter and apprised of the verdict in the James trial. Upon being informed of Um acquittal of James he manifested great sur prise. Said he: "I had heard from some of my friends that this was probable, but I never believed that it. was possible for the jury to acquit, knowing as I did that he was guilty. Even this afternoon I had offered V wager $1 ,000 on his conviction." When ak"d if he apprehended personal danger from the probable release of Frank James, he said, with a significant shrug of the shoulders: "Well. I should feel safer if he were locked p. But I don't psop. s t . provoke any quarrel, although I am asgood a man as he ie with fire-arms. I shall try to keep out of his way and live a peaceable life if he will let me.
