Many Jurors Challenged

Judge Sllllman presided In the Jury
courtroom thin morning.
Amlmuto wns put on trial for murder
In the first degree hy killing Hurl at
Kahuku. The follow Ing Juror were
called: M. K. Keohokalolc, F. W. Ma
klnney, 0. U. Thrum, Rugenc Sullivan,
W. M. Templeton, C. II. Crnne, 13. 8.
Ciinha, W. M. Ornlmm, John Wntor
house, flco. S. Wells, W. C. Wccdon
and John II. Srhnack.
Deputy Attorney Ocncrnl J. V. Cath
cart appeared for the prosecution, and
F. W. Hnnkey and A. L. C. Atkinson
fo'r ffie defense.
Mr. Wcedon was excused because he
dill not bellevo In capital punishment
and II. W. Gcon was colled.
When nine1 of tho Jurors had been
passed for cause, some after very
searching examination of the state of
their minds, Mr. Cunha stated that he
bad a prejudice against anyone using a
knife. Tressed by Mr. Hnnkoy the
juror said that, whllo he thought he
could render a Just verdict according
to the law and tho evidence, It It were
shown that this defendant carried n
deadly weapon, unless n satisfactory
exnlnnntlon could bo given of the cir
cumstance he should consider him "a
'Mr. Hankey asked that Mr. Cunha bo
excused for cause.
The Court thought the Juror might
stand aside for the present, as some or
. even all of thc-otjicr Jurors might en
tertain the same prcjudlco against car
rying a knife."
Mr. Hankey said he Intended to Insist
on the challenge.
Mr. Moklnney rose to say that ho
shared the prejudice In question.
The Court asked tho panel to retire
while the question was being argued.
Mr. Hankey argued for tho challenge,
claiming that a very slight prejudice
often bent a Juror's mind against a
Just verdict. ,
Mr. Cathcart In tho course of his re.'
ply said he had no doubt every honest
man had n prejudice ngalnst anyono
carrying a deadly weapon without law
ful oxcuse. As well It might be held
that a prejudlco should not exist in a
juror's mind In a case of burglary If It
were proved that the defendant had
been caught with skeleton keys on his
person. It would not be n good prece
dent to excuse all of these Jurors who
might have a prejudlco against carry
ing murderous weapons.
Mr. Hankey explained that he only
raised the point In the case of this ono
juror because he had voluntarily stat
ed It would requlro an effort on his
part o do justl ce on account of the
strength of his prejudice.
The Court denied tho challenge,
holding that tho statement of tho Jur-
or was more due to over-consclcntlous
scruples than to prejuldce.
The Jury being called In, Mr. Wells
said he had formed an opinion that
would require evidence to remove. He
was excused and W. C. Wilder Jr. call
Mr. Cathcart expressed satisfaction
with the Jury.
Mr. Atkinson peremptorily challeng-,
cd Mr. Crane, nnd Frank Vlda was
called only to bo excused for his dis
belief In capital punishment.
Tho defense challenged Mr. Water
house and V, W. Dlmond was called.
He had an objection to verve on tho
Jury, nnd the Court excused tho rpst
of the panel until his explanation was
heard. It proved to bo that he had no
confidence In tho ovldcnco of Japanese.
Doth sides nnd tho Court promptly ex
cused htm, and the others were recall
ed. H. C. Dlart was called. Mr. Graham
was excused and F. II. Armstrong call

D0ESN7 ASK HUGH
Sacramento Bee Tells of
Death In City and
DR. CARMICIIAEL HAS
Dr Kinyoun Said to be Making Fur
ther Investigations Morphine
Fiend Lived in Chinatown
Appearance .of Fake.
The Sacramento Dcoof Aug. 13 pub
lishes the following:
San Francisco hns got another case
of bubonic plague and this time it Is a
whllo man who has died of tho disease.
The man, however, was a hnljlluo. of
Chlntatown, so tho dlscaso Is directly
traceable to the quarter which the San
Francisco nnd Stnto Hoards of Health
wanted quarantined but were not per
mitted to do so on account of the inter
ference of the San Francisco news
papers nnd thuGovernor. The Interest
ing feature of the case Is tho fact that
It has been mote than n month since
tin. Inst, case wns retiorted. Tho enso
previous t thu was the one concern
Hig wnlcn ino lice nns uccn enuenvor
Inc. to fcveure tho olllclal reports of tho
bactceriologists, and upon which an nu
tonsy was performed on July Cth. In
this latest case death occurred on Sat'
urdny of last week, so at least thirty'
flvo days elapsed between the two.
Tho general claim has been that n
thirty-day quarantine Is all that Is
necessary In the case of plaguo, but,
ns Tho Deo has previously pointed out,
and ns Dr. Kinyoun told the health au
thorities of San Francisco, tho germs
will sometimes live for months. Under
conditions similar to thoso that exist
In Chinatown they have been kept for
six or seven months and found effec
tive. Dr. Kinyoun has all along claim
ed that the danger was not over even
Jjvlth a lapse of thirty days between
rases and the oent proves that his
warning was well founded.
Tho victim of tho latest case of bu
bonic plague was discovered In San
Francisco at the City and County Hos
pital, the subject having died from the
disease on Saturday of last week,
within six hours nfter the man was ad
mitted to that Institution. The doceas
ed wns William Murphy, 34 years old,
a white man, n habitue of Chinatown
and a morphlno Mend. Tho enso was
not diagnosed as plaguo beforo death.
The uutopsy was performed by Dr.
Taylor, of tho University of California
who, realizing that the caso was n sus
picious one, referred it to Drs. Kellog,
Kinyoun and Ilyfkogcl. They dissected
the bubo from the groin and tho gross
conditions, were found to be typical of
the plague. Tho toubos were more
typical than those of Chinese who had
died from the plague. The microscopi
cal examinations verified the opinions
expressed by Dr. Tnylor formed from
the condition of the various organs.
Tho deceased wns the first white per
son afflicted with tho bubonic plague
In San Francisco.
Dr. Wilfred II. Kellogg, bacteriologist
of the San Francisco Hoard of Health
was nsked about the caso over long
distance telephono this afternoon. Ho
stated that the patient, according to
the hospital record, resided on Dupnnt
street, near Pine, two blocks nwny
from tho Chinatown district, but that
tho man was an opium fiend and un
questionably a frequenter of China
town. He stated at the hospital that
ho had been 111 only three or four days.
Murphy was admitted to tho hospital
on Friday and died on Saturday, and,
so Dr. Kellogg understood, wnB seen
only by an Interne. Tho enso was
diagnosed as doubtful but it said that
the Interne suspected plague. The mat
ter was not reported to Dr. Kellogg,
however, until nftor death. Dr. Tny
lor was called In to perform tho nu
tppsy, and recognizing tho symptoms,
called In Dr. Kellogg. Dr. J. J. Kin
youn, tho Federal Quarantine officer,
and Dr. Ryfkogcl, the bacteriologist of
too State Hoard of Health.
Tho clinical history nf the caso, Dr,
Kellogg states, and every nppenrance
at the autopsy Indicated plague, and
these Indications wero confirmed abso
lutely by tho bacteriological examina
tion. Tho test of anlmnl Inoculation
will lw accorded as n confirmatory
etep. Dr. Kellogg stated to The Tleo
this afternoon that there was no ques
tion of tho case being ono of plaguo.
Tho recognized plague symptoms were
more marked than In any of th Chi
nese rns examined.
