"Of course, gentlemen, you must
not think that, because of the hum
ble position of this woman, you
should not give her the same con
sideration as if ehe occupied a more
exalted position in society.; What-,
ever her position, slie "is entitled to
the same legal rights as the most
prominent" and most conspicuous.
If therebe a reasonable doubt in this
case on the evidence, this doubt
must be thrown into the balance for
the defendant. 1, A danger lies in
the remarks of counsel which might
take your mind off the direct issue.
You must avoid this danger.
"I understand that there is no
claim on the part of the defense.
that if the defendant committed
this homicide it was either justifia
ble or excusable. 1 also under
stand that the defense claims that
the crime was murder in the first
degree or nothing. But you are not
bound to accept the arguments of
counsel as to the nature of this
crime. You are the judges cf the
fact, if there was murder, and in
what degree.' The crucial question
is, 'Did the man kill himself or did
this defendant fire the fatal shot?
