Adjourned to the doth. Jury he arose from owners walked Box Lull that followed Shook Foreman Clarkes hand heartily and said a gentlemen 1 thank you. I Trust that the future May confirm your judgment upon me and that you will never regret that you found me not guilty this terrible charged As he Shook hands with the jurors o3fci Man bowed his head in acknowledgement the words the liberated Man. The Only sound that broke the stillness was the deep sobbing the Little German Kunze. He burst out w Ith a god knows i am innocent. I never was in Lake View that night. god knows i am innocent Sullivan was the Only one the other three prisoners who found Refuge in tears. For a moment they trickled Down his checks but a minute later his Black eyes flashed with Defiance revival 01 courage and dashing his hand across his brow he braced up in his seat and cast longing glance a around the courtroom. The Only evidence terror to be perceived in Coughlin was the increased pallor that overspread his face As he fully realized the significance a sentence to life imprisonment and his lips twitched nervously during the colloquy that followed Between the attorneys and the court relative to the motion for a new trial. Martin Burke was unquestionably the least affected All the prisoners. His ment. Forty ballots were taken. It is stated undoubted authority that but for the fear juror Culver going insane in the jury room the other eleven would have stood out indefinitely for hanging Coughlin Burke and Sullivan Twenty one years imprisonment for Beggs and fourteen years for Kunze. Judge Mcconnell was asked for his views regarding the verdict. Said he a judicially Cour get i can pass no opinion upon the verdict. As in individual however and without being cognizant All the proceed j Ings in the jury room i might say that i think j the verdict is the n suit a probable objection some the jurors to the death penalty \ circumstantial a but the jurors All swore in being examined As to their competence that they had no con 1 Sci envious scruples against capital punishment a circumstantial a a that is All True. But behind All that each Man probably had a mental reservation that to must be convinced beyond a reasonable doubt. A juror might almost unconsciously have an objection to circumstantial evidence and yet never be fully aware it until a great Case like this involving human life caused him to pause and finally to guard against the possibility error favor life imprisonment in lieu the death penalty. The Law May be inflexible but Mea ate . Foster who defended Beggs was a Happy Man. A who far As Beggs is concerned the verdict is just what i expected a said be. A the other prisoners i do not Caro to speak my own opinion. I have Felt satisfied from the first that my client would be acquitted and i lost Little sleep i can assure you Over the matter after the Case went to Tho jury. There was no evidence against Beggs that would warrant his conviction and my Only wonder was that to should have to fade a trial at . Forrest the attorney for the defense says the verdict was unfair and that he would secure a new trial for his clients. He fully expected an acquittal he said. Judge Wing was also apparently dissatisfied with Tho verdict. The acquittal All the prisoners was he thought what it should have been. After the jury had left Tho court room Beggs held an agreeable levee with the newspaper men his acquaintance. the Surprise All them he said he did not expect the verdict As rendered. He looked for a disagreement. He said to could make no explanations his reasons now further than to say that he was possessed information which led him to believe that the jury would i guilt and that ther some time in the future. Beggs was asked Why he did not take the witness stand in his own behalf. hesitated but finally said that such a step his part would have put the other prisoners in a bad position. A do you think the other prisoners guilty a a a Man be convicted burglary such evidence. The supremo court will set the verdict a will you remain Here and practice Law a a i expect to. I presume some people will still look to with suspicion and think me guilty but i think the whole matter will come out and the people will see that i knew nothing about the murder. It was a brutal dirty All efforts to procure from the convicted men their opinions the verdict proved fruitless. . Longeneker said last evening a inasmuch As that jury fixing did not interfere with a verdict in the Cronin Case will probably forego our determination to at once go ahead with the trial the jury bribery under indictment. We need a rest. I think Tho rates will go Over to the january term. Then we will take them up and push them with All the vigor that we can the sentiment Many we Ell known consistent with the innocence the defendants John , Daniel coup Sliu Patrick Sullivan. Martin Burke. And John f. Beggs separately considered it 1� their duty to do so. Had to find such defendant not guilty. In the Boggs Tho jury must find. In addition to the fart the adoption a Resolution for a tace appointment a committed in Campau Fei Rumary 8, 1889, that such committee was appointed by Beggs a furtherance a conspiracy to commit the crime set out in the indictment and that the defendant had guilty knowledge the purpose for which the appointment such committee was asked. These j Mast be sati it act Rily established in the jury s minds before they will let a justified in finding Beggs guilty participation in the conspiracy. The fact that Beggs w As presiding officer comp 2d is not a circumstance St Ding alone tending to establish i guilt tk3 crime Char i in the indictment in this cose. And As there is no evidence in this Case that any overt act was commit out a by Toje Dele Dunt Beggs n Tye commission the alleged murder charged in the indict int in this Case therefore in a less it is established that a conspiracy was i entered into to commit the murder charged in j said indictment to which conspiracy the said i Beggs was a party he should be acquitted. I the jury must not disregard the Quot testimony old i witness Quot where it appears to be fair and not. Unreasonable unnatural and where they 1 i have not but in in any Maimer impeached. Ail the evidence must be consist re i and a Vei Duit a rendered in accordance with its weight. The j judge then at length explained the Legal methods impeaching witnesses in no View which can to taken this Case will they \ e warranted in using against one defendant any 1 \ Tidence the act conduct conversation any other defendant occurring subsequent to the Day the alleged homicide . Tonin. Although they May believe that the defendant Begg at a Mei Ting c amp 80 0� May it remarked in substance that that committee was to i let Ort to him and even if usually Florid face took a slight pallor citizens the Cronin verdict is some As the verdict was announced but a what diversified at Tho first Blush but ment later his jaws again began the will probably concentrate in a methodical mastication gum As Reg-1 jays upon the idea that it is a just and ulary As at any previous Timo during intelligent rendering. I his impression the trial. A obtained from the remarks a prom no crowd men was aver so surprised intent Jurist who said at a verdict As the audience was at this finding twelve men selected for their intelligence to weigh Chicago a Post famous criminal trial. And All the crowd the most surprised were Joel m. Longeneker and w. Lynos. The big Irish lawyer heard the Reading eagerly and then allowed his massive head to sink upon his breast lie appeared As absolutely stunned As though to had been struck with a Sand bag. . Longe Necker took it almost As badly. He did not glance at the jury after the finding Beggs had been read. He was though Able to talk Back w Hen . Forrest demanded time to prepare his argument for a new trial for the four convicted men. The defense s Leader we anted a month to get in shape and judge Mcconnell granted the request after some debate fixing the Date at january 13. Before this was done however judge Mcconnell discharged the jury thanking them for their services in so Long and exhausting a trial. The court then said a the prisoner Beggs is discharged. A Beggs immediately left his seat by the Side the other prisoners and was at once surrounded by a crowd newspaper men to whom he accorded an interview. After the Date had been set for hearing the motion for a new trial Coughlin Burke Sullivan and Kunze were taken Back to the jail Kunze was still crying and is he went out the door the tears were still running Down his face and he was sobbing and muttering to himself Martin Burke followed Kunze. And As he passed he w whispered to Forrest and smiled. He seemed entirely unconcerned.
