Elliott, Who Turned Stato's Evldoncej
Tvlust Stand Trial For Shnrb
PRINIiVlLLE, Ore May l'6 -After
deliberation covering more than fifteen
hours tlie Jury in tlib case of C. BaVn
Smith, charged with burnintr ex-Con
gressman J. N". Williamson'!! shearing
plant', brOtigh't in a verdict of guiVty,
at 1U:15 o'clock this afternoon', says a
diKpath to the Portland Orcgonian.
The verdict is a hUgo surprise to the
people here', most of whom were ex
pecting a disagrecmenti Wagers were
freely offered at 'two to one that if the
iury reached a decision at all the ver
dict Would be an acquittal. This opin
ion waH owing to the bad reputatioli of
Larkin Elliott, the alleged accomplice
and principal witness for the prosecu
tion', for truth and veracity, the unreli
ability of whose statements were
thought to be clearly established by fivo
I responsible witnesses. Evidence wail
also bTfcrcd to show that within the lasi
year Klliott had remarked, "cwll
' ' lilt t-T-l IU . . - 1
have to burn bimth's .house and nil)
him out otthe coun'tryi"
The evidence against this defendant
was largely circumstantial and but for
the testimony of Mrs. fcarkln Elliott and
Thomas Huston it Is doubtful whether
the state Would have had a case. AVv
other factor in the conviction was the
prohlise made by the, liartct attorhcy
to the -Jury, that Elliott Would not b
granted immutiiH' but would also be
punished for the crime admitted.
The case went to the lurv at 0 o'clock

votes changed to 10 to 2 for for convic

day, at which time the jury asked the
court to repeat the instructions relative
to the law governing circumstantial evi
dence. Fifteen minutes later the Jury
returned a verdict of guilty.'

changing color upon learning his fate.
