The defendant sprang to his feet
and was at once surrounded by a
"roup of friends who shook him
vigorously by the hand. The court
thanked tlie jury, after which Mr.
Highton asked that defendant be
discharged, and the court so or
dered. The court tlicn adjourned.
News of th acquittal spread
like wildfire, and on its reception
in the pucked corridor below a
iniMitv veil rose up. Men slook
each other by the hands and hust
led each other about'and the crowd
poured into the street. On the
first ballot tho jury stood eight for
acquittal and four for conviction.
On the next ballot, nine foraoquit
tal and three for conviction. There
was no change in this until shortly
before the court convened this
. afternoon, when tlie three for con
viction came over. One juror
stated that the ground on which
acquittal was found, was self
dftfnnse and not insanity. An eve
witness reports that when a
carriage containing young Kslloch
was seen, it was surrounded by a
orowd which rapidly became den
ser. The feeling manifested was
one of delight. . Each individual
seemed to make ita personal matter
and crowded towards the windows
of the carriage to catch a glimpse
of the victor in the long struggle
and to clasp his hands. Then a
murmur arose, "take ofi" the
horses," "let us pull him home,"'
"catch loM there,' and suit "Ir
enes were heard. By th's time
the streets and sidewalks were
packed, swayed by one impulse,
and grasping the carriage, it swung
forward by liults jerks and starts,
pausing as Kalloch reccgnir.ed one
and another of hit. friends and
waved his hands to tiietn. Tlie

There was much cheering from the

Immediately upon hearing the
verdict, Dr. Kalloch started for
home to announce the news to his
sons, mother, wife and friends, wlto
had been waiting for the verdict
with agonizing suspense. The
scene when Dr. Kalloch told them
of the result was intensely affect
ing, many present offering out
spoken prayers of thankfulness.
Shortly afterwards some thousands
of residents of the mission gathered
around Dr. Kalloch's house, the
" news of the result of the trial hav
ing spread over that section like
wild-fire. . Man' congratulations
were offered the family.

were tnrown uown mm
trodden under foot. Those who
attempted to extricate people hope
lessly jammed letwcen the door
way and jassages describe the
scene as terrible. The shrieks of
the wounded mingled with the
cries of those in the galleries,
wiierc every means of escape was
cut off. Mine. Uonadio, the prima
donna, was saved, but tlie tenor,
Ijfcsso, baritone and a number
of the chorus singers were burned.
Up to midnight 150 bodies were
extricated from the ruins. A man
who escaped from the upper gallery
declares that with perhaps a dozen
exceptions every person in his part
of the liouse was burned. Some
sailors were lost. A number of
American md English visitors
rendered signal assistance in saving
life. Tlie scene in the town is in
describable. One lad' whose hus
band was burned to death commit
ted suicide. Cotnplaiuts were
made respecting the defective
means of escape and water sup
ply. Altliough tlie Mediterranean
washes the shore at tlie foot of the
walls of the theatre, no water
could be obtained when wanted,
and the beautiful opera liouse was
a complete wreck.
Later Many persons were
trampled to death in the stampede
to get out. It does not appear at
present that any Americans were
aniens: the victims. Eleven more
bodies are said to be under the
ruins. The exits of the tlieater
were very narrow and badiy ar
ranged. As the curtain was down
tlie public were unaware of the
danger unt'l the gas exploded,
when the smoke iecame suffocat
ingly thick. People tried to throw
themselves from stnaM windows at
the rear of tlie theater. Sixty-nine
Inxlies bo far have been recovered.
The theater cost in tlie neigh
borhood of $3"0,000 and was built

national lmnks which had been
contracting the currency were de
sirous of putting in tlicir bonds
again and taking out the legal
tenders wliich they had sent on to
withdraw the bonds. This means
that having bullied, frightened or
otlicrwise influenced Hayes to veto
the funding bill, the bullying
banks are anxious to resume their
former status. These creatures of
legislation, having shown them
selves superior to legislative con
trol, are satisfied with the result of
their demonstration and want to
get their circulation back again.
The national bankinsr system has
some millions less friends than it
had a month ago. The attempt to
get up a panic bailled by Mr Sher

feeling of resentment. "VYc must
