Guilty of murder in tfte second degree is the verdict of the jury whkh acted in the trial of Jamea Rigo, charged with killing Anton Felici on July 13 at the plant of the Elyria Iron and Steel company. The deliberate manner in which the murderer lay in wait for his victim and 'his attempt at escape following the shooting, convinced the jury that tine man was not demented at the time the crime was committed.

Dozens of empty bottles were smashed by the compact, the wagon being literally reduced to kindling wood. DRY JUDGE MAY BE BARRED FROM CASE Wets at Ottawa Ask Another to be Brought in. Ottawa, 0.

CLAIM TREES ARE HIDING LIGHTS Lighting Company Asked To ]\Iovo Latter. Oberlin Barber Confined Here For Display of Jealousy With Gun. BROKE UP A DANCE Had Previously Been Told To Avoid Home of the Lady. Too ardent love has led Alfred j Pickett, an Oberlin barber, behind the bars of the county jail, where he ·nill reside'until some friend who is worth ?200 goes sponsor for his behavior. Threats to kill his sweetheart's mother and finally the young lady herself were the events which led up to the arrest of Pickett. The object of his affections is Miss Josephine Cordin, a young colored girl, residing in Elyria. Pickett was not acceptable to the older members of the Cordin family. Two or three times in succession it was necessary to forbid him to visit the house. Each ejection from the house was the occasion of threats made by Pickett that he- would kill someone. On election night, Miss Cordin attended a dance in Oberlin and, early in the evening, Pickett made his appearance in the hall threatening to clean up the place. He was quickly surrounded and disarmed. Now he must answer to the grand jury and will only be allowed liberty upon assurance that he keep his peace.
