Liberty, Mo , June 11 The jury which has been sitting for the past week in the case of Agnes Myers of Kansas City, charged with the murder of ber husband, Clarence Myers, to-dav returned a verdict of guilty of murder in the first degree. The verdict means that the death penalty of hanging is to be Inflicted. When the jury retired at 11 o'clock last night It stood ten for conviction and two for acquittal. The crime for which Mrs. Myers was convicted was one of the roost atrocious ever committed. Accord Ing to the story of Frank Hottman, who confessed tn being an accomplice with Mrs. Myers In the murder of her husband, the crime was premeditated and was executed In the most brutal manner. Hottman was tried last 'ebruary tor the crime and was con victed and is now awaiting the death penalty. According to Hottman's confession he was admitted to the Myers home at an early hour on the morning of May 10, 1904, by Mrs. Myers, in accordance with a prearranged plan to kill Clarence Myers. When Mrs. Myers had administered to her husband a drug to compel sleep, Hottman went to the bedside of tbe sleeping man and dealt him a blow with a billiard cue; This served to arouse Mvers. who grauDled with Hottman, and, as the latter was in toxicated, Myers was getting the better of the fight, when Mrs. Myers struck her husband with a bed slat and later cut his throat with a razor repeatedly. She then stabbed the dying man in the back a half dozsn times with a pair of sissors. The confession of Hottman was the strongest evidence of the state against Mrs. Myers. Hottman testified voluntarily against the wo man and he was offered no Immunity by the prosecution. POOR LEADERSHIP CAUSE OF DEFEAT, Naval Officers Declare Russian Sailors and Offcers Were ' NofEnttrely to Blame For Naval Disaster. Yladvostok, June 14. A series of interviews which the correspondent of the Associated Press has had with the naval officers who survived the battle of the Sea of Japan has de veloped a most sensational story of the cause of the Russian disaster. Frst of all is the complete demor alization shkhJollowed the sinking of the flagship Knlaz Souvaroff and the wounding of Admiral Rojestven- sky. It Is explained that not a slngl officer oi tne neet Knew the com mander-in-chief's plans. The admir als in command of divisions knew no more than tbe sub lieutenants and had to rely only on the signals of the flagship. Admiral Nebogatoff, upon whom the command devolved, had seen Roiestvensky only once after the juncture of their squadrons, and then only lor niteen minutes. All the stories of extensive target practice at Madagascar, it seems. were false. During the entire voyage there probably was no training in gunnery worthy of the name, and the big gun practice was confined to t res shots per vessel. Ugly stories are told of the happen inn at Madagascar. Some of the crews certainly were untrained in gunnery and, exhausted by the eight montne voyage unaer trying moral and physical conditions, were no match for the veteran Japanese, whose markmanship was wonderful. The Japanese concentrated their lire on one ship until she was placed out of action, and then on another, thus successively sinking the Oslabya, Alexander HI and Kniai Souvaroff.
