was freed of a charge of murdering
Haden Clarke, young writer and his
rival in love yesterday by a verdict
which precipitated a courtroom de
monstration that threatened to go be

The 12-man jury deliberated four
hours and 48 minutes before acquit

He had been on trial since August
2 in one of the most sensational hear

—a trial that brought out the secret

and Mrs. Jessie M. Keith-Miller, the
Australian aviatrix, in full detail.
Fashionably gowned women wept
and shrieked in delight as E. B. Lea

Near-pandemonium followed, with
