AnotheT Interesting point ln connection wlbh the motlons of the defense Is re colving ii good deal of discusslon nt the hands of the people. One of the only conoelvable effects the readlng of tho newspapers could have had upon tho Jury? men -would have been to glve them some idea of the drlft of public sentiment touchlng tho,case. Thls Mr. Lee himself. tho leadlng attorney for th? defense, diel better and wlth more consummate elo quence than any newspapc-r had ever done.

He says he wlll not be hting and he antlclpates apprchenslon by declnrlng bluntly that ho. has no intentlon of com mlttlng sulclde. He expects yet to be a fre<? man. The verdlct seems to have met wlth gr-neral approval at the hands of the peo? ple. But few men bclleved McCue Inno? cent. . The Charlottesvllle public. knowlng or professlng to know rnucb that never appeared ln court, was and Is absolute? ly convlnced of hls gullt. Others who have vlslted the town ond In thelr own way seen thlngs are borne down with the same convictlon. The only doubt fror beglnnlng to end wlth thls great mass of people has been whether or not the nature of the evldence posslble for the Commonwealth to drag before the jury Would be sufflcicnt to esta.bllsh hls gullt. Thls questlon has been answercd. Wblle the people here rejolce that a crlmlnal should have got hls just due, they are, neverthcless, fllled wlth plty for tho suffering of those connected with the murderer by famlly ties. Throughout tho trlal thls has beon repeatcdly commented upon.

There are several luoxpllcable fcotures of the murder whlch wlll probably, unlnss thero Is somo day a confessloi, forovcr remain hldden ln. mystery. / Thero never ha_ been n satisfactory explanatlon of why the water was turned on ln tho bathtub, and why lt was that the tub, which roqulres fiftoen or twenty mlnutes to flll from the splgot, was full ln so much shorter tline than that, as sumlng, ns has boen done, that the spigot was turned on after the shot. A new theory is to this effect: That If the murderer was J. Samuel McCue, as the jury and tho people bellevo, he had beaton her and cholted her untll he thougrht her dead, and put her Into the bathtub nnd turned on tho water to mako olthor tlio lmpresslon thnt sho had committed suicldc or to drown her, should a spark of llfe remaln, after whlch he rushed up Park Street a squaro and a half. and rcachlng the doctor's. Then on sued tho oonvorsatlon whlch was heard by Mrs. Dr. McCuo whllo .sho was un dresslng to go to bed'. This conversat.'on, sho said, took place at tho 'phone, It ls belleved that what sho took for the 'phone bell, was tho door boll, and that Dr. McCue's brlef apswer, "AH rlght," wa_ mado to hls brother at the door. Returning home, so runs the hypothesls, McCuo found hls wlfo not deael, but out sldo of tho tub, whleh bolps to account for the wol conditlon of the ba.th-r'ooni floor, ns to whleh all agreo. Thon fol? lowed the appeal. wlilch Charles Perry heard', not klll her, as sho would dle anyhow?nnd' then, too, followed tho guii shot, whlch put an end to all. If thls story be truo, It wns durlng tho brlef tlmo that McCuo required to go to hls brothor's home for pretendod nld, or for whatovor purpose, that Chnrles Sklnnor heard tho crylne for from three to flvo mlnutes.
