OLMSTEAD CASE .STOPPED.
IllnissK In a Juror'K Kninllv Cnu-cd
It Continuance Until -Monday.
The Olmstead will case, now pending in
Judge Bradley's court, was suddenly dis
contlnuisl, not to be reopened In-fore Mon
day, at the earliest, at the opening or to
day's session. Sickness in the home of a
juror was the reason.
"I am in'ormed thai one of the members
ot the Jury has scarlet fever in his home,"
announced Judge Bradley.
Tlie Juror was John B. Buckley, of No.
lbOO T street northwest. He came down
to court ns u-unl this morning, but did not
enter the Jurv box. Though he 1ms been
in the same house with his sick child, he
has not been in her room, ami up to the
present there was not the slightest reason
for fear among the other members of the
panel or the attendants on the trial, the
"There is apparently no way to get a ncw
1ury now, and it will.be some daj-s, doubt
less, before the case ran go on," said Jlr.
Ham" Davis, one of Mr. Olmstead's coun
sel. "I would suggest that the jury be
respited until next Monday morning."
"Can't we empanel another Juror?'" asked
Mr. n. Ross Ferry, Mrs. Webb's lawjer,
"It will take far longer than until next
Mondav to make It sare for Mr. liucklcj
to rcttiru. If the child has scarlet fever
it will be at least three weeks before ho
can come back."
Judge Wilson followed the suggestion
of bl3 associate, Mr. Davis, and said tlie
Jury should be respited until Monday, for
it might be learned then that tlie disease
was not scarlet fever. Oilier arrange
ments could be made then, he said.
Judge Urndley agreed with him, and the
case was postponed. The other panel of
the jury had already been excused till
Monday, and the court adjourned.
