THE FATE 01' WARD
Scented After live Dnjs' Questioning The
Tibl of the Man Who Killed Adler
Now Fairly Under Way Tlfv Jurors
Kiev en men, who had formed no de
cided opinions, and who believe I that
liny e'otild render a fair and true verdict
according to the sworn testimony, took
their scats lu tho Jury-box this morning,
when the trinl of Frank K.Wnrd was re
sumed lu thu Criminal Court. Lnto on
Saturday afternoon tho panel of sixty
drawn on tho previous day was exhausted,
leaving eleven Jurors lu IhcboK and the
defense still with tho rigid to onu per
Justice lllugham ordered n new panel of
twenty talesmen to he drawn, and this
nun liinir they took (heir seats within the
I ar of the Criminal Court, wondering who
among them wolild bo called iton to
serve on the July that will decide whether
Frank Ward Is guilty or Innocent of tho
murder of Maurlio Adler.
Ilia announcement that tho Jury was
nearly coinplctisl had tho effect of draw
ing a'larger crowd of sptsJutors than has
been present since tho opening of tho
Mr. Chiggct tho assistant of District
Attorney Hugo, wnsthcllrstof the lawyers
lo appeur in the court. Ho carried a bun
dlu of paiicrs iu his hand, and carefully
arranged a pile of law hooks on his table.
Senator lllaekburn, accompanied by
Ward and Judgu Wilson, with n long roll
of iniicr and a couple of scraji-books under
his ami, was the next to appear. Mr.
Drown, one of the d"fcnd.ints counsel,
who was absent during Saturday's pro
i ceilings, came in tills morning and took
his customary sent.
After the opening of tlio court Justice
llingham read a communication from
Ptter Carroll, one of tho eleven Jurors se
cured, stating that when he wiiscxamlncd
he had, by mistake, given his ue as o",
when he w as, In reality, 05 years old. Mr.
Carroll was called from tho box and uuei-
tloncd by the Court. Hu said Unit he
would be 05 on tho '.'d of next January.
As he was not yet 05 Justice llingham con
sidered the Juror competent, but District
Attorney Hoge objected, referring to tlio
Angus case, wherein a Juror cuvu his ago
ns under 05, but w:m afterwards discovered
to be over that age, and, therefore, Incom
petent. TheJ first of the twenty new talusmen to
be excused this morning wasa Mr. Alwurd,
an old gentleman between 80 and 00 years
of aire, lie aiineureil active und healthy.
and, after being congratulalesl on his ro
bust appearance, w as exempted on account
of his ngc.
The case of Peter Carroll w as then again
taken up hy Judge Hoge, who real the
statutes governing the ago of Jurors.
Justice lHnghum thought that tlio bos!
course to ursuo wus loscnd to Mr. Car
roll's home for the record of his ago, If he
hud any. Mr. Carroll said that hu did
Iiavo such it reiord, but It was now iu p'is
session of his sister who lived In Hoch
ester, N. Y. Ho had telegraphed to ho'
for Information on Saturday with regard
to his ago and she had replied that ho was
too old to serve on tho Jury. Ho could
not tell what his ago exactly was and
would not like to swear whether lie was
over or under 05 years of age.
Tho counsel for tho defenso wero evi
dently on ious to secure Mr. Carroll as n
juror and were of the opinion that since
Ids own impression was that ho would ho
tViinno.xt January, lie was still compe
tent to serve. While tills discussion was
going on Ward appeared very much in-tcr-
' , "dsjiokein whispers to Senator
i. v ..atnr, In addressing the Court,
called attention to the fact that any proof
of a record of tlic juior's ago hud not been
shown, except his sister's telegram, which
was very hull Unite. Jf the juror win in
quired to produce) n record ot his age, then
eveiy other juror who had been found
eomH.tent should also bo compelled to
give (Kisitivo proof of his age. Mr. Car
roll had to-tilled that to his best belief hu
was not 05. His belief should he tuken iu
deciding his age.
The matter of trying tho ago of jurors,
said Judge Hogo, falls upon the Court.
Mr. Coleman claimed that if varroll
scried on tho jury und a verdict was
rendered, it could not bo set iisido on tho
ground that Carroll wus over the proper
age slnco tho question of tho Jurors ago

Ihnt lho juror wus over the ago of IH, and
therefore Incompetent. Mr. Carroll was
therefuio ordered to again take his scat as
a competent juror.
(Icorgo W. Muddlngly was colled to Illl
tho ono vacancy lu tho Jury. On exami
nation Mr. Muddlngly was found to bu
under '21 j cars of uge, and was ovoniptod
on that account.
John W. Thomax, a builder, answoied
all the (iiiestions of defenso and prosecu
tion sutlsfuilniily. Ho hud known Mr.
Ward for tw ell e years, but had formed no
pinion as to his guilt or Innocence.
i ho Jury box was not full and tho de
fense still had tho power of one challenge.
At this (Kiliit Ward, although ho has
hitherto preserved an apparently calm ele
meuneir, appeared to becomo deeply in
terested und cxhibltes! considerable ner
vousness, lie consulted erigorlywltli Sen
ator ltlaikburn anil Mr. Wilson ovei thu
list of jurors and nn evident anxiety pei
vaded both tho counsel for the defenso
and (loverniuent. Judge Wilson aioso
from Ids chair and conversed with several
gentlemen sealed within the bar. After
a long consultation Mr. Wilson returned
to his usual plucu and exhausted tho lat
peremptory e hallenge of the defenso by
excusing William ('. IV.iko from tho jury.
Thomas II. Cross was called to com
pute the jury. Ho had no bias for or
against tho defendant, but had conscien
tious scruples against capital punishment

Harry L. llirmlngham had such an
opinion of the lase that ho could not ren

other ilevcn Jurors went Ids way.
As each talesman w us called to tho stand
for examination every evo in tlio court
room wu turned upon him. An intense
anxiety was iiiaulfe-ted as each Juror nn
sw creel tlie qiicMlons tvskisl, and a feeling
of relief spread through thu court room
when tho twelfth juror was ut last secured.
This man was rdnglelnn Webster. He
