BOHDEN spent her first night ouc of jail at her homo In Fall River. There was no demonstration of any kind, a» was toured, The announce- moot of tbe verdict notod favorably In MissBorden's behalf. Possibly tho woalcnesi of the case against the young woman had more to do with quieting the Fall River people, who were Tory mtieli Incensed against Miss Bordon, than anything else. It Is questionable whether any orio In the past fifty years has been tried for murder murder with BO llttlu tangible evidence to sustain tho charge. Suspicion, gossip, malice, and a disposition on tho part of the police to mnke Lizzie Bordon the murderer of hor father and his wife, appear to bo all there wan In tbe charge against her.
