Inclined to accept the verdict of the j
Jury as tliu last word Is Indicated In j
the preparation by his attorneys of an
appeal tn tho United States circuit
court of appeals. The appeal, it Is
understood, will be based on alleged
errois of tho trial court. Stress is to
be luld on the fact that tho Indlct-
incut did not set forth the utto'rnnccs
of the defendant In (crmnn, the Ian-

In the event the verdict Is confirm-
