LIFE SENTENCE FOR IRS. BOWERS FORMERLY OF PORTLAND. WOMAN WAS FOUND GUILTY Convicted of Poisoning Her Husband August Last Jury Which Return ed the Verdict Also Established the Sentence Defendant's Sister Was Discharged. San Francisco, Jan 22. The Jury ln the case of Martna E. Bowers, on trial on the charge of murfiering her husband, Martin Bowers, brought In a rtrdlct last night of murder In the first degree and fixed the penalty at imprisonment for life. The much tortured and pain wrack ed Martiu L Bowers died on the 25th of last August. The four ounces of arsenic found in his stomach after death was relied up by the prosecu tion as their best piece of evidence, but many thought It would be diffi cult to convict Mrs. Bowers with this fact, as Mrs. Zylphla Sutton, her sis ter, who was identified as having bought the poison, was subsequently discharged from custody by Police Judge Cabanlss. There is a feeling that Mrs. Bov, ers' defenbe has been weak and in consistent throughout. The defendant took the words from tho jury in the same manner with which she has "n- dured the entire trial with much stolidity. it was one source of relief to the two sisters that the punishment had been fixed at life imprisonment, leav ing lier, at any rate, as much time as could be desired in wmrii to appiy for a new trial, with no dreadful sen tence oi the hangman's noose ahead of her.
