tion of his sermon, delivered last Sun-'

He was surprised at the stir bis words

"I have said as much many tares
before." said Dr. Abbott.
"Two months ago I delivered practically
the tame sermon to an assembly
of Congregational ministers at.
De Moines. Iowa, and there was no
such excitement aroused. I arn not
an atheist. I believe in God ant! in
the divinity of Jesus Christ. There
seems to be confusion and misinterpretation
regarding my ideas of Cod.
especially in regard to my reference
to an eternal energy.
"God is not an unconscious force,
but a being who thin'ts. wills and
I feels. It is not necessary that Col
be somewhere rather than everywhere.
The conception of the eternal
presence is expressed better by
the words "Our Father' than by anyother
that I know. A father dwells
in his child: a King sits apart and
governs through fear of punishment.

of the Bible. Dr. Abbott
discussed the future of the Christian
"Religion survives all changes in j
expression and in form," he said.
"That faith in God will undergo
changes in the future as it has in the
past. I do not doubt, but it cannot be
destroyed. The end of religious developments

'and this verdict has broken my'! _
After over 24 hour*' deliberation
and argument the jury in the trial of :
Nan Patterson, before the bar of jus- "
tice on the charge of killing her I
lover. Caesar Young, failed to agree. 1
and were discharged by the court. ;
The jury reported twice to Justice i
Davis that they were unable to reach
an agreement, and on the second re- t
port they were discharged. t
Xan Patterson, the defendant, coi- t
lapsed completely when the disagree- i
ment was announced, and sobbed :
convulsively on her father's shoulder. s
On a motion of Prosecutor Rand.- 1
the prisoner was remanded vvithont <
bail. It is expected, though no an- t
nouncement has yet been made, that v
the Young actress will have to under- '
so a third trial. c
The hands of the clock pointed to I
twelve hours and forty-four rainutes t
when the -word was sent out from the i
jury room that they were ready to s
make their final report. The jury c
filied into the box. and it was evident '
from their manner and expression '
that no verdict had been reached. 1
Hiss Patterson came into court 1
from the prisoners' pen and sat at
the counsel table. The early return !
ox" the jury was somewhat unexpect- d
ed. and the defendant's father was not e
in court when she came in. She I
did not lift her veil, and sat there
quietly alone, tucking nervously at 1
her dress, with her black glover! *
hand. There was a pause of almost
two minutes after the judge had taken 1
his seat, because of the non-arriva! oT ~
Clerk Penny. It seemed an age to
the defendant, and she looked about ! ?
1 I
questioningly for her father. TW ?'
door in the rear of the court was open t
Tor a second, and the old man hur- r
ried in and sat down beside his c
daughter and placed his arms gently 3
about her waist. 1
In the meantime Clerk Penny had J
arrived, and the roll was called. t
""Please arise, gentlemen of the 3
jury." cried Clerv Penny. 3
"The defendant will arise." Miss *
Patterson slowly arose from her f
seat, her right hand clutching the table
for support, while her left hand ^
sought her father's. v
""Have you agreed upon a verdict?" 1
asked the clerk of the court. P
"We have not." said Foreman Har b
mer quietly. c
The Florodora actress swayed a?- t<
she stood, and sank limply to her J'
seat. t]
Her father put his arms about her, 11
and she began to sob quietly. ?
The jury sat down and were ad- T
dressed by the court. tl
Justice Davis said:
"I feel that you have given this case vill
the consideration possible, and it b
will be useless to detain you looser. S
Do you understand that there is no s:
possibility of reaching a verdict?" H
"I think there is no possibility of tl

it is to be regretted," said Jostle
Davis, "that you are unable to recon- <:ile
yourself to the evidence. I
hank you for your patient attention c<
ind your work for the commonwealth.

Clerk Penny announced that by orler
of the court no one would be per- ai
nitted to leave the room until the C1
ury had retired. The jurors left their fc
teats, and without looking at the de'endant
they marched out of the 111
Miss Patterson clung sobblngly to "
ter father, and her anguish was man- a'
fest by audible crying. Her counsel
vhispered a few words to her, but cl
he would not listen. Prosecutor W'lllam
Rand arose, and addressing the al
tourt said: "I ask that the prisoner hl
>e remanded without ball."
The Judge instructed Clerk Penny t!
o have the defendant remanded with>ut
bail at once. A court officer aouched
Miss Patterson upon the a
boulder, and giving her father a final m
ciss tottered to her feet. Tears U1
;treamed from her eyes and a deputy sl
>rison warden seized her by the aria

loor. f
Nan Patterson was led/.weeping o

ombs where^she 'had- spent six -long sc
nonths of hope and - expectancy 'of lo
in acquittal, j

But it must be that I will finally j
rain mv freedom. God be with me :

William Kand. Jr.. the State's at- !
omey. before .leaving the court, was j
isked if he intended to try Miss Pa:
:erson again. lie said he had notltrtg
to say regard ins the case. He
tlso deciined to say whether he would
iccept a reasonable amount of bai:. i
dr. Rand said any other statement
juoted to the contrary would be false
md unauthorized. Foreman Harmor
vas questioned on lea vine: the court ^
>y your correspondent as to the delib .
rations of the jury. He said that g
ast night only one ballot had been
a ken. and that it stood six for coil- .,
"ictior. and six for acquittal. Ho j
aid there was on this ballot no dis
tnssion as to the degree of homicide,
de declined to give any further inormation
as to the deliberations of
he jury as the court had instructed I
tim not to discuss the case.
There will be a conference at a i
ater date among the officials of the
iistrict attorney's office as to anoth r
trial. la the meantime it is ex _
ected that Miss Patterson's counsel ~
vill make every possible effort to a
