Aftorono of tho most tragical and sickening trials over hold in Arizona, Cager Edwards was found guilty of rnpo on tho first ballot taken .by tho jury ycatordny afternoon ana tomorrow morning ho will bo sontencod by Judge Nave to tho poiitontinry. Tho jury was given tho enso shortly after 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon nnd retired to tho jury room. In n few minutes tho jurors reappeared and woro tnken to lunch. Ono ballot had been taken without any discussion nud every vote was mnrked "guilty." Tho court an nounced that sontence would bo passed tomorrow morning nnd tho general be lief is that Edwards will rccoivo tho mnximum ponnlty lifo imprisonment. There lias uovcr beon n trial in this county that could equal this ono nnd tho few who woro present during its progress, especially on Monday nftor noon, hope never to bo compelled to nttond a similnr one. The spectacle of a 13-year-old child about to becomo a mothor, on the- stand, nccusing her mothor's brother and only near male relative in fact, hor natural guardian and protector of hor shame, with every word sho uttored accompanied by suf fering, wns n tragedy that shocked and horrified ovon those who knew bofore hand of tho testimony that was coming. Edwards on Stand The defense took an unoxpected turn yesterday morning when Edwards was placed on tho stand in his own behalf and under cross examination he admit ted that he had denied his guilt before he had been accused. His story did not impress the jury. Although twenty-five or more witnesses had been summoned by tho defense, only four wore placed on tho stand yesterday, all of them to prove tho good character of tho" defend ant after an unsuccessful attempt to im peach the testimony of the girl witness by reading tho transcript of hor evi dence at the preliminary hearing, which only strengthened tho case of tho ter ritory. Tho character witnesses were D. Brown, W. II. Mclntyre, Luther Jackson nnd William J. Fcaglcs. When the taking of testimony was concluded Assistant District Attorney Henry opened for tho prosecution and was followed by Attorney French for he defense. District Attorney Stone- man closed and after instructions from the court tho jury retired. Foreman S. M. Yoeman submitted tho verdict when court reconvened for tho afternoon ses sion and the defense had the jury polled, after which they were discharg ed from further service during tho pres ent term, this being the last criminal caso on tho calendar. Both Aro Mothers Ludio Carter, tho girl who on Monday afternoon testified against Edwards, gave birth to a girl baby yesterday mornine nt 1:30 o'clock. Her twin sis ter Lulu, another victim of her inhuman undo, gave birth to a child several days previously. Both have Jecn cared for by the county sinco last February. Tho grand jury which indicted Cager Edwards last February also found a true bill against his cousin, Jerome Ed wards, which has been kept on secret file. Tho latter made his escape before boing arrested, going to New -Mexico. An unsuccessful attempt was mado to apprehend him, but ho mado his way to Mexico, where ho now is. There is still another indictment against Cager Ed wards, but it is, not likely that ho will ever be tried on it.

QUESTION UNANSWERED WHEN COURT ADJOURNS Heney Asks Ruef if He Divided with" Mayor and Defense Ob jects Question Involves Main Issue of the Case. By Associated Press. SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Juno 11. No serial story editor ever cut a talo at a more tantalizing point than that selected by circumstances this afternoon for the closing of Mayor Schmitz 's ex tortion trial for tho day. The prosecu tion had maneuvered an eleventh hour rensation by calling Ruef to the stand in rebuttal to contradict denials made by the mayor on tho witness stand ear lier in the day, and the fallen boss bad opened his lips to answer the question; TV1 vnn inv linlf nt tliia nvtnrtinn monev to Schmitz!" when the defense launched an objection whose detenmna tion wns still in doubt when tho over night adjournment was taken. Former Judge Campbell, senior coun scl for the defense, called Schmitz to testify in his own behalf as the second witness of tho day. Tho mayor nuount cd the witness stand shortly before 11 o'clock and occupied it more than an hour, during a considerable portion of which opposing counsel wrangled over the right of the prosecution to nsk the mayor whether Ruef divided with him nny fees alleged to havo been paid him for protection by French restaurant keepers. Anxious to Talk The mayor himself exhibited eager ness to waive the technicalities of law and answer squarely tho issue. This he did again and again by abrupt unquali fied denials after Campbell had with drawn tho instructions to his client not to answer nt all. Judge Dunne warned the mayor's counsel not to give such instructions, but Campbell, couching his retort in tho most courteous language, said he would disregard tho mandate pf tho court, even if it led to a sentence for contempt. Such a contingency was a-oidcd, however, largely through the seeming eagerness of the mayor to give Heney an answer for every question put. Tho defense, whoso day this was for tho introduction of evidence, called only four witnesses and the direct ex amination of each went to tho' establish ment of two points only. What They Tried to Prove First, to overthrow the testimony of former Police Commissioner Reagan that tho mayor had attempted to use him as a holdup tool to forco French .Min..HMM- ....... U tinnmil lirnllrrtl J ' with. protection money to Ruef. Second, to prove that tho holding up of French restaurant licenses was the result of a labor union plot to ruin their business becauso they or some of them had refused to yield complete obedi enco to the mandates of unionism. A few minutes beforo 3 o'clock the defense nnnounccd that it rested. The prosecution, after a fruitless wait of nearly a half hour for a missing wit ness who was desired, called Ruef, the mayor's former political partner, who had been brought by two guards jrom tho prison houso on Fillmoro street and tnkon to tho chambers by a back way, so that the big crowd in the synagogue was ignorant of tho prosecution's coup until it was sprung. Ruef, pale and composed, wearing an overcoat and carrying his hat, entered at the back of the altar and made his way around tho crowded counsel table to tho clerk's desk, where ho took the oath. Then he slipped out of his top coat, laid it with his hat on tho altar floor, and climbed up into tho witness chair, tho cynosure of a thousand stares. "Don't answer any questions, please, until tho defense has an opportunity to object," cautioned Campbell. "Mr. Ruef," asked Heney without hesitation, "in July, 1905, in the houso nt No. 2849 Fillmoro streot, tho home nt that timo of Maypr Schmitz, did you give Mayor Schmitz $2,5001" Had Divvied with Mayor Tho prosecution alloges that Ruef di vided evenly with tho mayor the monoys paid him by restaurateurs and tnat tne first installment paid by them was $5, 000. To tho Question Mr. Campboll inter posed an objection whoso argument wns still in progress when ndjournment was taken at 4:30. He fought hard for an ndjournment, pleading that ho wished to submit several other authorities. Honoy wanted an immediato decision overruling tho objection and promised to finish tho examination of Ruef inside of ten minutes if allowed to prococd. Tho defense in objecting claimed it was not proper rebuttal because it dealt with nothing that had been asked of tho maypr in direct examination and tho object of rebuttal was to overthrow or discount tho mayor's answers. Heney claimed tho question could not be more portinont or proper than tho ono put to Ruef, becauso it tended directly to establish tho main issuo of tho c.isj, namely: Did tho mayor help to extort mnnp.v.from French tho restaurateurs! Tho .defense finally won tho plea for niHnnrnmont until morning, when, the .... ' court will ruio. n YESTERDAY'S BASEBALL SCORES IN BOTH LEAGUES By Associated Press. American At Philadelphia R. II.
