Nebraska Lewis Feterson acquitted of the manslaughter charge brought against him because of the death nf John Hlbbard, by a Jury In district court after It had been ut five minute Tuesday afternoon. Inability of the Mate to show that the fall which Hlbhard was said to have re ceived as a result of a blow from Peter son, caused the man's death In an alley hours later, teems to have ben the strong est point which the Jury considered. The defense was that Hlbabrd might have been beaten by another man after he had left the Peterson saloon on Sixteenth and California streets. In fact, the de fense had witnesses to testify that they saw and heard things which would Indi cate Hlbbard foughj , or was stacked by soma one after he left the Peterson saloon. The case went to the Jury at 6:30 yester day afternoon. The defense had rested fol lowing the testimony of the defendant, who denied striking the man anything more than a slap. Four addresses, none of them long, were made to the Jury by the lawyers In the case. Someone In Alley. In support of this theory Charles Sun shine was called to the stand as the first witness.

Then he heard the remark, "Take that you ." The defense's next testimony came In the form of a deposition by Mrs. Pearl Bloom burg, . made a few minutes, according to her statement, before she was about to leave the city last September. Attorneys tor Hlbbard, had been watching her arid caught her Just at the train. The deposition declared that she, her hus band and one Vic Fuller had found Hlb bard sitting in front of the saloon In the Drexal hotel and that Fuller had carried Hlbbard Into the alley lest he be arrested. The testimony Is not introduced to show that Fuller waa actuated by kind thought- fulness, but that Hlbbard had to do that night with other persons than the defend ant.
