Li Grange, Dec. 21. The jury
in the case of Sam llurkett return
ed a verdict of not guilty, nttir

This nd op the bi.nlfst cop
twstJJ tnl 'mOJt Musatioual, t,
criniiail trial. Iuring the yflMt
IVIi .cveral daring robberies were
committed in tho vicinity of Moul
ton. In Janu iry, 1893. II 0 Horn,
a detective fiom McLennan 0011111
came to Moulton and began an in
vestigation with a view of blinging
the robheis to justice. A few miles
from Moulton, on his grandfather's
headright, lies Sam Rurkettj a
member of one of tho oldest and
most prominent families in Texas.
On the night of July '26, lSOS.wliile
driving from Moulton to Flatonia
in a buggy, and within one mile of
Flatouia, in this county, Horn was
shot in the back with a load of
buckshot. Fred Jackson, a bright
young boy, swore that he recog
nize 1 Sam Euikctt and his lioiso
on fiat night going the direction
that Horn had taken. The state's
the ry was that Horn was gather
ing evidenco that tended to fasten
the lobberies upon Sam Burkett;
in other words that Burkett was a
robbsr of a Mr. Krause's sto.o and
thj robber of Jlillerj that he knew
II rn suspected him, and that for
fiat reason he as.assinated the de
tective. While the state's caso
was one entirely of circumManCd
evidence, still it was sufficiently
strong to warrant thq couit if
criminal appeals in holding it not
bailable. Tho defendant c'aimcil
that on that night ho was not on
tho Moulton-Flatonia road, but was
at homo with his family. At thu
November teun, 1893, tho eaio
came u panda mistrial was had,
tho jury standing elev 11 for life im
prisonment and one tor acquittal.
