THE TORY fOUND HIM NOT guilty
A VERDICT FOUND IN IS MB
Celebrated Ex-Sheriff Discusses Plans For
Future With The Reportar-Will
Go to Lake Charles.
•^The jury in the case of the
State vs. Garrett Soott for the
murder of a negro in 1874, at 1:30
o'clock Tuesday afternoon
brought in a verdict of not guilty,
after having deliberated over the
case for less than fifteen minutes.
This verdict was reached unani-
mously on the first ballott, and
the only discussion in the jury
room arose over a question of
manslaughter as brought out in
The arguments in this cele-
brated case began in the morn-
ing and continued up until noon.
District Attorney J. P. Buchanan
was assisted in the prosecution
by Mathis & Pace of this city and
the defendant was represented
by Hon. Ben S. Rogers of this
city and W. F. Tarver of Hous-
ton, all of whom spoke.
The case went to the jury at
noon, when court was adjourned
until in the afternoon. Long be-
fore the hour arrived for re-con-
vening court, the jury announced
that they had found a verdict
and a special officer was dis-
patched after Judge Sinks, who
came at once and convened
court. The defendant came in
soon after the arrival of Judge
Sinks. He was accompained by
his wife and his two neices, Mrs.
Cornelia Karcherof Houston and
Miss Corilla Tuck of Abilene,
both of whom he had reared from
childhood, and his aunt, Mrs.
Ellis Neblett of Anderson. The
party took seats inside the bar
and awaited the reading of the
verdict with Bome impatience.
Scott himself, who during the
argument in the forenoon had
exhibited no concern whatever
in the proceedings, listening to
the speeches attentively but
without the expression of any
emotion in his features, showed a
keener interest than he had at
any other time during the brief
trial of the case. He appeared
to be nervous, but confident.
Immediately after the eourt
was called to order by Judge
Sinks, District Clerk Krug read
the verdict, which found the de-
fendant not guilty. Kinsmen,
jurora and spectators crowded
around the man whose troubles
had brought him such notoriety
and congratulated him, A couein
threw his arm around Scott's
neck and patted him affection-
ately on thte back, while tears
rolled down his cheeks. The
scene was an affecting one and
there were several wet eyea in
