After Mrs. Eaton had left the court
room the Jurors, through their foreman,
sked that they might be allowed to
meet her. The permission was granted,
and they formed a seml-clrcle In the
corridor. Mrs. Eaton came out from
the judge's lobby and thanked them In
dividually. As she did so she burst Into
tears for the first time since her trial
started. A little later Mrs. Eaton gave
cut the following statement:
"I nm glad most of all because of my
mother and child, both of whom need
me. I shall go home late, today, I- hope
that a new life will be opened to me and
that tho trials ad tribulations which

"The verdict was what we expected.
It frees on Innocent woman, but leaves
as a mystery tha end of the admiral, her

to find out what was behind the poison
which caused lils death, but my Investi

llecause of tho prominence of near
Admiral Eaton, the trial of Mrs. Eaton,
who was his second wife, attracted country-wide
Interest. The admiral took a
prominent part In the battle of Santiago.
After his retirement he settled down on
a little chicken farm at Asslnlppl, where
he died on March 8. Mrs. Eaton was ar

paign In behalf ot his former colleague.
Representative A. P. Gardner, candidate
for governor on the republican ticket
J lis principal opponent Is a progressive,
Charles S. Bird.
Certain Nebraska progressive support
ers of Senator Norris wired him today
exresslng disapproval that he did not
support Bird Instead of Gardner. The
senator has sent them a letter giving his
reasons for supporting Gardner. They
are based on the fight the two made
against Speaker Cannon and so-called
boss rule. He said In part;
'I would support Gardner regardless of
politics on the ticket He Is bucking the
machine rule In Massachusetts. I feel.lt
my duty to help him. No one secrtflced
more than Gardner In the rules tight He
had to turn his back on former supporters
and members of his own family. I have
never known a man who has superior
courage or stronger fldenlty to what his
conscience told him was right"
With reference to the progressive party.
