Verdict - sent up. The Sophia Lyons case which attracted a good deal of attention terminated in a verdict of guilty. During the progresa of the trial, the court room was crowd ed, and sheriff Wallace and several Ceputies were kept busy in keeping the people back. As to the guilt or innocence of the accused, public opinión is devided. It was generally believed by thos who heard all the testimony that there would be a disagreement of the jury. There was a direct conflict of evidence as to the defendant being in Ann Arbor on the day the offence was committed. Th witnesses on the part of the people who swore to seeing Mrs. Lyons here on the 6th day of October were persons who had only seen her onzone or two other occasions, and many people lave strong tloubts about the possibilily of theh identifying the defcndant on such slight acquaintance. There seems to be a general impression among those who heard the tiial that thouU Mrs. Lyons is a woman of unsavory reputation, she was not guilty of the offense for which sbt was tried, but that her appareut connection with the matter was owing to hei refusal to disclose the real criminal.
