Stowell, who was acquitted of the charges of break ing and entering by a jury in the su perior court yesterday afternoon, will probably not go back on police duty until after next Tuesday night, when the police commissioners meet. The acquittal of Mr. Stowell guar antees his return to the force in the same position he occupied when ar rested, that of a grade A patrolman, connected with the Howard avenue precinct. When arrested Chief Cowles suspended him for ten days, the sus pension later being made indefinite ay the commissioners, the understand Ing being that It would last until after the trial.' - - .

At 'Grace hospital last night it was reported, that Mrs. Cadwell had im proved materially during the past few days apd that the wound in her neck was slowly healing. The process of a recovery, without the second operation, according to physicians interested in the ease, would be a long one. but, recovery under such condition Is perfectly y.os siblc, The long time it will take for Mrs. Caldwell to recover will preclude any possibility of her husband being tried before the April term of the superior court. As soon as Mrs. Cadwell's re covery Is assured he will probably be taken before the city court and be Im mediately bound over. The higher court will in all probability decide the charge on which Cadwell will be tried. Miss Virginia Peck, who was also shot by Cadwell, Is recovering from a flesh wound at the hospital, and will be able to leave for her home on Gill street in a few days. WALKER EXTRADITION .

Bartlett, assisted by Dr. H. B. Ferris, yesterdayi afternoon, removed all doubts that the woman died after being criminally as saulted, The autopsy was performed at Lewis & Maycock's morgue and lasted fully six hours. Dr. Bartlett submitted his report to Coroner Mix last evening and the coroner will prob ably come to some decision In regard to the matter today. Until the autopsy the police believed that Mrs. Fletcher wandered Into the lots In the darkness of Tuesday night and died of exhaustion. To them ths marks on her face appeared to come from a fall. v . J The theory believed now, both by th police and the other authorities, Is that Mrs. Fletcher after leaving the car on her way to Mrs.- James McLaughlin's, Cherry Ann street home, was assaulted by some powerful man and carried into the lots. The marks on her face are those of fingers placed over her mouth to keep her screams from beln'g heard. That exhaustion brought on by the otl ,1,. il-ft I.

It wag no blind appeal for the vengeance by the law that Mr. Jerome addressed to the jury but always In his argument there was the note of fairness, even at times of mercy. The year that has elapsed since the 1, first trial had wrought a wonderful Und startling change In the prosecutor. 1N0 longer attempting to shield the name of Stanford White he said that he accepted the story told by Evelyn Nesbit Thaw as true rII but the part about her being drupged, and hn made fttnk confession to the Jury that the velvet swings and mlrurel rooms of the studio-houses 1 described by the girl were Indeed a miserable reality. NO longer attacking Evelyn Thaw as a skilled adventuress, Mr. Jerome plead- think death was caused by foul play.

Heated charges of cowardice in turning a blind eye to the "reign of terrorism" in Ireland to keep the nationalists In good temper and assure a continuance of their sup port In the commons were launched against the government in the house of lords to-day. The Marquis of Lon donderry, who was viceroy of Ireland in 1886-89, led In the attack and so nfectlous were his sentiments that even Lord Langford, who has been a representative peer of Ireland since 1RR4. broke his silence of twentv-four years and devoted his maiden speerh a recital of his personal exper iences with cattle driving outside his own gates. The Marquis of Londonderry de. clared that, the present state of Ire land is worse than in the dark davs of the early eighties when murder and outrage were rampant, and he at- tnnutefl the conditions entirelv to the cowardice of the government.

Mr. Jerome carefully explained the elements that enter into a verdict of primary murder, the pen alty of which is death, and then he pointed the way to two other findings which he declared were possible un der the circumstances.

NOT GUILTY IS STOWELL VERDICT Jury Brings in Unanimous Finding After Being . Out But Twenty Minutes. CHARGE OF JUDGE CURTIS Final Summing Up of the Case by the State's Attorney Great Dem onstration on Announcement. "Not guilty!" 60 spoke VMiam h. Booth of Meriden, foreman of the Jury which has been hearing the trial of Mason A. Stowell, at 4:20 yesterday afternoon. The Jury had been out Just twenty minutes, having been sent from the court room after hearing a carefully prepared and thoroughly Just charge from Judge Curtis. The decision was unanimous. It was im mediately followed by the biggest demonstration of approval that has ever met a Jury verdict In a New Ha ven court room, at ieast In years.- The court room was packed to suffocation at the time and the sheriffs were ut terly at a loss to control the situation. Sheriff Spiegel at once rushed to the center of the court room and called loudly that the gallery be cleared of people at once, but almost as he spoko Judge Curtis dissolved the Jury and ordered the term of the criminal court pronounced at an end. , Thus ended one of the most sensa tional trials that New Haven' has seen in some time. It was a trial In which to a greater or less extent the whole reputation of the police force .was at stake. As the big crowd awaited the jury to come back to give In Its ver dict there was ths most Impressive silence all over the room. Stowell and his lawyer, Mr. Goodhart, were evidently very nervous. Over near the doorway sat the , wife of the accused, and her eldest daughter.' When the verdict of "Not guilty!" was pro nounced the wife ank Into the arms of her daughter and cried ns It her heart would break, but the tears that came were tears of Joy. Stowell wa.s at once the recipient of a monster showing of approval from his many friends. They surged around hl-n a.s he stood smiling, a free man, In the doorway, and shook his hands. 'There were the 'I-told-you-soV and the "1 expected It's" In great number. , Day of Sensations. The day had been one of sensations throughout. In the morning Attorney Goodhart had made his argument for the defense. Knch.of the. attorneys were limited to an hour and a half. Just before Attorney Ailing began his preliminary argument for the state there entered the court room the wife and four daughters of the prisoner; It was a dramatic situation. They walk ed right past the Jury stand to their seats. The three younger daughters were sent out of the room again as being under age. 1 Aftfr Mr. Alling's argument came Mr. Ooorlhart's for the prisoner, and then it was time for the noon -time re cess. ' , Mr. Williams' Arpumcnt. filreotly after the recess Mr. Wil liams, the state's attorney, arose to speak. He said In part: "Your honor and gentlemen of the jury: We have been told by the esteemed gentleman n fthe defense that the situation the prisoner finds himself In Is a series of unfortunate circumstances. I agree with him. He says It Is an attempt to railroad an Innocent man to prison. Wo must, not lose sight of the evi dence. "Now. gentlemen of the Jury, the night, of December 23 last was a dark, foggy night and in the story of Mr. Brunt, which is submitted to you, we find that about 10:10 he was in his house, where he had been since (! o'clock. He had been engaged since 8 o'clock In entertaining certain la dies. Suddenly we are told he decid ed he wanted to go out to collect a bill from a certain mari. Here he was living on Judson avenue, and he says he started out from there at 10:10. t want to go over his story with some detail because his ptry does not strike me as reasonable. You believe Mr. Cornwall, his superior, who said that Stowell came to his house at fi o'clock In the morning? What did he go there for? To get his friend Brunt to help him out. "What urgence was there, anyway, for Brunt to go out on n ctld night to collect a bill front a man he hadn't seen for nearly a. year (referring to Wilmotl. He didn't even know where he lived. But, no, all of a sudden he was In a hurry to see Wlimot ' "Next day. after h'd had this early interview with Stowell, mind you. he railed up Mr. Frederick by telephone to say he had been at Winthrop and Derby- avenues the night before and had seen there two men in front of Jim Clark's and that he followed them down to Frederick's shed. He realized that the consistent course would have been to have telephoned to the police as soon as he got home. If he had been honest. Wouldn't it have? It simply Isn't true; it is a made up story. "o Reasonable Doubt. "We can shut our eyes to oratory and talks of 'reasonable doubt.' Tliere's no foundation for the cbim that there were any su:p:cious characters, or any men acting suspiciously, even if he saw them and I don't believe he did, be cause of the distance and the fog. That's '.ill the evidence there Is. "Now. what must we do? I don't be lieve Brunt: you may." Mr. Williams in the course of his argument, paid a compliment to Chief Cowles, whose record for thirty years was spotless, he said.

Republicans arid Democrats Unite la Wishing Him the Best of New Haven Adminis STEAMSHIP RECEIVER Procr edings Instituted Against Consol idated and Metropolitan. Boston, Jan 30 The proceedings in this city for a receivership for the Con solidated Steamship comp.iny were in stituted simultaneously with those in the courts at Portland, Maine, and New York to-day. The action was brought by William A. MulW of Arlington, Mass., whose counsel dld three bills of complaint again it the Consolid 3ted, and also against two subsidiary companies, the eastern and Metropolitan Steam ship companies. Petition? for an injunction against these companies were also filed to-day by counsel for Mr. Muller, and for the Berwlnd-Whyte Coal company. In his bill of complaint Mr. Muller declares it his belief that the Eastern Steamship compny hns a total floating Indebted ness of $l,35fi.onn, and that the Metro politan company has a floating indebt edness of Ji.Kiiti.dfin with unpaid bills of Sl'SO.Ojrt and Interest on outstanding bonds of l,:oo,00ft The immediate cause of the petition was the failure .if the Eastern Steamship company to pay a demand note to Mr. Muller of tlO.OOrt. It is expected that as soon- as the t'nited States court in New Tork act3 upon the portion filed there, similar proceedings will result in the courts here and i; Portland. The difflYulties of the Consolidated Steamship company are regarded by bmkers in this city as the result of ex cessive steamship building and failure on the part of tlie company to provide a sinkin? fund for the underlying bonds of the six companies that were consolidated by Charles V. Morse of Bath. Me.
