Nye on the bribery charge, Prosecutor Turn- er announced today that the oth- er bribery trials will be called at once. Representative Evans, charged with soliciting a bribe to support the Dean bill, will be placed on trial next Mon- day.

Hogan declared em- phatically that in spite of the unex- pected result in the first case, the other indicted legislators would be brought speedily to trial. The return of the verdict was mark- ed by scenes of confusion, in the court room. The jury had been out less than two hours when the bell an- nounced the arrival at a verdict. Mes- sengers were dispatched .for Nye and members of his family, who were at a. downtown hotel. After considerable delay, they reached the court room and the jury filed in at o'clock. The verdict was greeted with shouts of applause from the little group back of the defendant's trial table. While the court rapped in vain for order, the aged mother of the defendant-threw herself weeping into his arms, the sounds of her sobbing rising loud a- bove the confusion. .The strain the nerves of the woman gave and near-hysteria became almost gen- eral.
