After being out sixteen hours, sayi an East Las Vegas dispatch of Novem ber 28, to the Denver Republican, the jury in the Logan train robbery case, the third trial of which has just been completed, found James Black and John Murphy guilty of train robbery and John Black of conspiracy to hold up the train at Logan. The verdict was not expected. Every attorney at the local bar has expressed the belief that the verdict was not warranted by the evidence. It was necessary to brand as false the evidence of five Colorado wltnesties, including that of J. J. Thomas, part owner of the Sunnyside mine, who produced his mine books to show that the defendants were in Sunnyside on the day of the robbery and the post master at Bloomfleld, Colorado, who swore he delivered a package to Mur phy that day and produced the regis try return card to prove the date. The positive evidence of none of the Colorado witnesses was impeached. United States Attorney Llewellyn made a strong appeal to the Mexican jurymen who have bitter prejudice against the Texans, "to send these Texas toughs where they won't come into New Mexico and hold up our trains." The people of this city, who, as a rule, believe in the innocence of the defendants, raised the money to carry on the present trial and the Colorado witnesses came without pay. The feel ing bore Is such that money will be raised to carry the matter to the Su preme Court and, if necessary, to the Department of Justice. The first jury in the case stood nine to three for ac quittal when - there was only Mr. Thomas to prove the alibi. The sec ond stood eleven to one for acquittal when Thomas had been reinforced by the postmaster. This time the defense produced five strong witnesses to prove the men were in Colorado on the day of the robbery. The prosecution was conceded to have made a weaker case than before. The prisoners had masks and guns when they were caught in Oklahoma and an indictment for forcing a ride on a freight, train and throwing a brakeman from a moving train is hang ing over them. Severe Losses by the Storm. The Denver Republican prints tht following dispatch from El Paso, Texas: A special from Carlsbad says 1,000 sheep belonging to A. J.
