own revolver, held in his own hand,
the verdict reads, but whether acci
dentally or with suicidal intent is not
specified. The jury said the former
explanation was the less probable.
The finding of the jurors is described
as “an open suicide verdict.”
The verdict was reached after a
three hours’ session and after much
lively debate in the jury room.
Although none of the jurors would
talk about their action, It was said
that three held out for a verdict of
suicide and the others for one of ac
cidental shooting, a”d that the open
verdict returned was a compromise,
to break the deadlock.
That the insurance companies will
contest the payment of policies is said
to be assured, and it is declared that
relatives of the slain presi

collect the insurance.
No representative of the Rawn fam

among those present at the close of
