VERDICT OF JURY
IS FOR ROQSEYET
(Continued from Paga One.)
The question put to the Jury waa whether
machine government or government by
tha people should prevail, and the latter
has prevailed. The article In the suit
wag held by toe court to be libelous In
two aspects. '
"First Because It charged a corrupt
political alliance between William Barnea,
the republican leader of tha state, and
I Charles F. Murphy, the democrat!
!' leader ef tha state, la relation to the
; stats government. (This, the Judge held,
was the meaning and purport of the ar-
tlcle taken as a whole.)
' ".'Second Because the article charged,
! that the plaintiff had worked through 4
1 uorrupt alliance between crooked busi
ness and crooked politics. The Jury was
further instructed that It must render a
verdict in favor of the plaintiff, unless It
found that the defendant established to
Its satisfaction by a fair preponderance
ef evidence that both charges wef true.
This burden was successfully borne by
Victory for flood Geveraaaeat.
"It is Impossible to determine at this
time the far-reaching extent of this ver
