Like her husband, she never dreamed of a first degree verdict, hut rather counted on a disagreement of the Jurors. Justice Goff, it is understood, has gone to the country for a rest over the week end. One of the first places to. which the news of the verdict was taken was the West Side prison, where are quarted the informers. Jack Rose. Sam Scheeps. "Mridgle" Webber and Harry Vnllon. The four apparently expected n disagreement, however.- for they were ail asleep with the ex ception of Schepps. He was at first suspicious when told that a first de gree verdict had been returned, then remarked laconically: "Mr. Whitman is a smart man.” Keepers at the Tombs say that Meeker did not sleep last night, lie was to confer with his lawyers to day and declined to give out an ex tended Interview.

District Attorney Whitman said this afternon that the four gunmen will go on trial early In November. Then the informers. Rose. Vallon, Webber and Schepps will be brought Into court once more to repeat their story. Mr. Whitman pointed out that whllo counsel for the inform ers had the right to appear before Justice Ooff and demand their re lease on bail, they had no desire for liberty. "What they want now." he said grimly, "Is not heavy ball, but hea vier doors on the west side court prison. They would rather be on the inside looking out than on the out side looking in."
