The defence offered no evidence,

the river the day of its mother's death,

benefit of any reasonable doubt that
might be in the minds of the jury. The
circumetances and evidence were ably
reviewed ,and an earnest appeal made
for the unfortunate prisoner
Geo H. White, State's attorney, then
opened for the prosecution. He re
echoed the language of th9 gentleman
who had just addressed the jury, that
they had a grave responsibility resting
upon them. The law must be respected ;
the jury did not make thoeo laws and
were not responsible for them. Ho ran
over the evidence and argued that the

argument for the defense was
resumed by W. "V. Clark, Esq. Mr.
Clark opened with the assurance to the
jury that what he might say in beba!f
of the prisoner would be the last words
submitted to them by any one for him,
and he felt the responsibility the greater.
For him8elr and the lury
he invoked tho
; direction of God Aim ig
ghty who alone
was able to guide them to a correct con
clusion, Mr. Clark with much ingen
uity raised the hypotheses of murder in
the second degree; or willful drowning
by the deceased, who after crossduR the
river, and going up to the untenanted
house, had resolved to go no further and
returned to the river with the intent of
going back to her father. In the
effort of Jones to prevent her. a

tentionally choked her to death. In

His Honor then charged the jury in
clear and comprehensive terms, re-
o.nitntin7 with irront. carpf n 1 n pss t h e
evidence in the case which was for the
benefit of the jurv. The eridrafo,
His Honor stated, made either a case
of" murder or nothing. The jury took
the case at about 2 o'clock, and the
verdict '.'"' "We have. " said the spokes

The roll was again called, when each
i juror responded, gunty.
The prisoner received the verdict
with comparative composure, making
no visible display of emotion further
than that state of agitation plainly per
ceptible throughout the proceedings of
Counsel for the defense made a mo
tion for a new trial, which will proba

The prisoner was remanded to jail.

OiiK'aoo. May :So. The threat three
, mile race between Ilanlan and (iaudaur
occurred at the Calumet cour?e today
for the championship cf America and
S5.000 to iHakpp. A slight ruu;;huei- of
the water had no deterring in il ueiK-e.
and the start was made with prompt
ness. Hanlan wa. at once a tri!! in
the lead, pulling a short nuiek ctr..l; .
i'2 to the minute. Gaudaur kept i l.e
to him with a long, steady sweep, about
f) to the minute. Gradually Ilanlan
forged ahead, and at the etd of the
first mile was fully a boat length in ad
vance. It had been the go?sij- that if
Ilanlan could lead to the turn he was
nearly a certain winner, but if Gaudaur
reached the buoy tirst Ilanlan would
never catch up on a stern chate. Great,
therefore, were the expectation? of
Ilanlan 'd friends to see him nc irintr th
turn clearly ahead of Gaudaur and
gaining all the time. The rain now be
gan to fall. The lake was soon lumpy
from end to end. and the downpour
was almost blinding. Hanlan turned
first, two lengths ahead; time, 10.02.
He was pulling about 05 strokes a min
ute at this point, and rounding to
Gaudaur struck about the same gait.
Hanlan stopped an instant here for some
purpose, but did not lose the lead. He ,
kept well to the front from the start
until entering the third mile. There
Hanlan commenced to Hag. So uneven
did his stroke become, and so great an
effort did it seem to require, that many

shipped one of the choppy seas. Gaudaur
was rowing magnificently. He showed
the long, steady sweep he had taken
at tne outset, Dut taster. w ltn machine-like
precision he passed the
straggling Hanlan. A boat's length of
water between them could be seen,
then another, and at last one more.
"'Hanlen's beaten,'" murmured the
crowd. "No, no,"' shouted others . "bee
him spurt: see him spurt. " And spurt
Hanlan did with vengeance The mul
titudes on shore and atloat held their
breath, then, regardless of rain, tossed I
nat8 and umbrellas in the air and started
f to yell like Comanches. The cheers
d ied on their lips. Hanlan could not
stand the pace, and again Gaudaur's
! great sweep began to tell . It was then
that riaiilan lav back ju. t ar ir.Rtfint.
and, turning hia. face from the rain,
shot a glance over his shoulder at
Gaudaur. The single glance wa?
enough. Hanlan saw himself irretriev
ably beaten. Gaudaur was six lengths
to the fore. Seeing Hanlan surrender
all hope. Gaudaur magnanimously
slackened the speed and passed the
stand an easy winner by four lengths
Time, 19 ao. It was a fine performance
under the adverse conditions.
Hanlan was seen by an Associated
, Press reporter immediately after the
, race and asked what he thought of the
result. "I do not think the best man
won. " paid Ilanlan. "'thouih I acknowl
edge I was fairly beaten."' Questioned
how that could be, the ex champion
grew taciturn and would only say that
ho did not wish to make any excuses.
Persistent queries, however, brought
Out the statement from Hanlan that he
had not been in the best condition. "I
have been suffering from a cold." he
said, "and it told on me exactly when
I most wanted it not to." In sharp
contrast to the glum appearance of
Hanlan was the cheery, sun-browned
face of Gaudaur. "That was the hard
est race I ever rowed." said he. "T
just had to do my level best." he said,
' and I did it." The reference of the
1 race was Hanlan's choice Hamilton
