KANDAI (•KAYS IIAKBOK COI'HT IIOI SI., Montrsano, March 13. Following the concluding of the (entralia murder trial, which lasted far Into the night, the Jury today began deliberating on a po**lble %erdlct. Mm early agreement I* not looked for linlu> of the large numb' r of defendant* In volved. Three verdict* are poie-lhle In all ca*e* except that of IWendant Klmer Smith, who mu«t cither he found guilty of HrM degrer murder or acquitted. The others may be convicted of either first or second degree mur der or found not guilty. Hrnith. Cen tralia attorney, wis charged only as accewiory before the fact. The case was finally submitted to the Jury and A It. Johnson, alter nate. excused from further service, late last night, following a day of brilliant legal oratory. The omlaaion of a particular de mand of the state that the death penalty b* inflicted waa considered significant, since the penalty is de termlned by the Jury. Kqually striking was the failure of the de fense counsel to play on the svmpa thies of the Juror* with allusions to the w|\es and children of a number of the accused men. I'KOMKd TION ASKS FOR Jt STICK The final argument. given by Proaecutor W. 11. Abel, wa* a ring ing appeal for conviction of all 10 defend f* for flr*t decree murder. "We Bik you only for Justice," Abel told the Jury. "and If Justice I* Riven, every .one of the defendant* will he found guilty a* charged " Describing the present trial a* one of the mo*t Important ease* in the history of the country. Abel said the Issue In the caae wa* not a* to who wa* the agirre.Kvor. but whether a conspiracy on the part of accused I. VV. \V. had b**en shown. "Others be*lde* Mr*. (Srlinm. the widow of Warren O. Orimm. who wa* ruthlessly murdered a* a result of the conspiracy of the defendants, are Interewted In this trial." the pros ecutor said: "I'pon your verdict will depend the right of Americans to protection from murderous, attacks. Shall we make the I. W. W. a shield for murder?** A powerful appeal for acquittal wa* made by defense counsel Van derveer. who while admitting that the accused men had armed them selves and shot the soldiers, said that the men had only resisted a felonious assault on their hall. \\XDKRVKKR PLKADS FOIt "FINKK THINGS" "The eyes of the labor world are on you today as they never will be again," Vanderveer said. "The eye* of the people who are looking for the better and finer thing* arc looking to you." Vanderveer took issue with Spe cial Prosecutor Cunningham's asser tlon that a verdict for acquittal would in reality be the end of good government in this country. "If. by your verdict, you stamp approval on raids on the halls of honest working men It will Indeed be the end of good government in this country." the defense counsel told the Jury. A large part of the plea of the de fen*e attorney was devoted to a discussion of the conditions existing in Centralia where, he said, the I. W. W. had been denied protection of the city authorities. He made u powerful emotional appeal hosed on the idea of "fair play for the under dog." Vanderveej- dwelt at length on the 1 alibi claimed by Defendant Kugene ; Harnett, alleged slayer of Warren Orimm. Harnett, he contended, was con clusively shown by the evidence of defense witnesses to have heen in the Roderick hotel when the state claims he fired the fatal shot from the Avalon hotel. Altho a number of the defendants are married and several have large families no attempt waa made to play on the sympHthies of the Jurors I by mention of these interested parties. And only in two cases were j relatives of the defendants called to [ testify In their behalf. ItKKKNHANTN AUKKKI) TO I>KKKNI> HAM, Altho he admitted that the defend ants had agreed to defend their hall, Attorney Vanderveer claimed that they had a right to do ho. At no time, however, ha* he gnne Into the detnlis of the alleged plan which testimony showed included the sta tioning of men In various places outside the hall. The opening argument for the •tate, given bjr Special Prosecutor C. D. Cunningham, was an orderly TWO CKNTS IN SEATTLE and logical summing up of the evi dence introduced by the prosecu tion. Cunningham pointed out glaring Incorisisteni ies in the defense testi mony, contending that much of the defence wan a mere camouflage. "The defense counsel well knows that the only possible defense for theiie men 1* the claim that no con spiracy existed." he said. "And yet he admits that there wan an agree ment on the part «*f the defendants to protect their hall in an unlawful manner. "If the** are acquitted It mean* the end of good government In thin country. We will have red anarchy with all its horrors, ouch as r saw at Centralia on November II la lit. In the instructions to the Jury, de livered yesterday. Judge Wilaon de clared that the Issue In the case waa the question whet hen the defendants had entered Into conspiracy to pro* tect their hall in an unlawful man* ner. If the death of Warren (irimm wan the result of such apparent con spiracy. the Jury waa directed to find the accused men guilty of first de gree murder. A special feature of the Judge's charge waa the instruction relating Ito the defendant Loren Robe*, ta. Robert* Is found Insane, the Jury must decide whether he shall be con fined in an asylum. Either first or second degree mur der may be found in all cases ex- I cept that of Klmer Fmith, who must he acquitted or found guilty of first degree murder, since he is charged a?, a coconspirator in the alleged plot.
