Philadelphia, Deo. 19. Tbe trial ot

at 4:80 this afternnou in a verdict of not

tbe defense tbat from the clrciansuno'S
of tbe case ho thought that Butler'i injur
les were probably caused by a fall, and
that death was caused by a coooussion of
tbe brain. Tbo tbeory was strengthened,

expressed intense suffering. As tbe court
clerk announced the Judgment in a clear,

In tbe dock and lay still for
