The Detroit Doctor Found Not Guilty of Manslaughter. 

Grand Rapids, Mich., April 6.—Dr. Charles T. Bennett, of Detroit, was acquitted in superior court yesterday.  He made periodical visits to Grand Rapids as a specialist, and last winter Miss Richards died from the effects of chloroform he administered while undergoing treatment in a hotel room which served as an office.  He was arrested, charged with manslaughter.  The defense was conducted by Congressman Henry C. Smith, of Adrian.
