Chicago, Oct. 20. At" o'clock this
morning the I.udgett jurymen uwoke
uud bathed their faces, llreakfust
was served and their deliberations
were resumed for a short tlmo, after
which all became iilot. Then rumors
if nil kinds were set alloat, while an
other crowd was gathering.
As early as 7 o'clock women sought
admission to the court room, before
tho Janitors had completed tho work
of putting the room In order. All
curly callers were turned nway, unit
thu .sheriff instructed his deputies to
restrain the crowds and prevent the
crowding of tho court room, ns 011

was taken to prevent any outbreak or
Five minutes bofore the time set for
the opening of court the crowd In thn
room was in marked contrast to that
of yesterday. Instead of tho nervous
throng which packed tho room
yestctduy uud lute Into thu night,
about twenty-five people, mostly
luwyers, newspttper men nnd those In
terested In tho trial, wore present.
Tho rows of benches were empty. Tho
strict orders given regarding the' ad
mission of people were well carried
out Outside tho court house the
street facing It was well filled with tin
orderly throng waiting patiently for a
verdict. One by one the counsel in
the case arrived at the court room. At
10 o'clock Judge Tuthlll sent word
thut he was within e.isy reach. Vin
cent wus confident of acquittal and
l'huleu expected disagreement,
t Despite the fact that sheriff Pease
gavo orders that the women be ex
cluded fiom the court room, a number
secured admission. The principal
reason for the exclusion of tho fair
sex wus a desire to prevent it repeti
tion of Saturday's hysterical scene.
The court room, which hud been
nearly empty dering the enrly hours,
began to fill up toward midday. Many
notable men crowded their way into
tho court room and rumuliied some
time In the hope of hearing tho ver
dict. At 11:13 o'clock William Charles,
Luotgert's business partner, who had
made untiring efforts for soverul hour-,
to learn what action the jury hud
taken, said: "It Is all guess work as
to tho verdict the Jury may take. I
have been told thut thu jury stands
ten for acquittal and two for convic
tion. I have ulso been told that the
jury is sevon for conviction, four for
acquittal and one not voting. No one
outside the jury room knows whut
they aro dolug. Hut the fuel that
they are still waiting gives us hope
for an ucaulttul."
At 1:30 o'clock this afternoon
State's Attorney Deneen said that tho
latest and best information lie hud
upon the attitude of the jury was that
eight stood for conviction nud the In
fliction of the death penalty and foui
were holding out for acquittal.
