had been passed this afternoon in the

other talesmen remained In the box.
There were only two talesmen left to
be called out of a venire of seventy-two,
and the marshal was Instructed to Issue
.. call for a -special venire of twenty. A
Jury, It Is thought, chii be obtained In an
hour to-morrow. Many men were ex-
used because of business, but the greater
part said they had formed such positive
opinions about the case that they could
not give Dlggs a fair trial.
The prosicutlon exercised peremptory
challenges on four talesmen and the dC'
fence challenged five. The prosecution
has two peremptory challenges left and
tho defence five. The prosecution chal
lenged all unmarried men except Arthui
Goodnll, a young shipping clerk of the
