True Dills?John Anderson, murder ot"
Mate William Wallace Sounders.
Joint Anderson, murder of Captain

The grand jury was discharged.
The case of the United States vs.

whereon the high seas the alleged crime
was committed. The demurrer was
The prisoner was arraigned and Clerk
Fowler read tho Indictment to him.
To tlie usual question of "Are you
guilty or not guilty," Anderson replied
it guilty," and there was not a
tremor in his voice.
The matter of empanelling .the petit
jury being tlie next In order, Mr. Mc

which the venire was summoned, on j
the ground Unit it did not state that it
was summoned to try this particular

as to his ability to give the case an
Impartial consideration were thrown
on:. One man said he had f irmed an
opinion from reading The Virginian.
He was disqu.-ilili. d. Another, after
stating that he had formed an opinion
of the case land was not opposed lo
ca,pltal punishment, surprised every
one by saying he did not think he could
give the case a fair trkii, because his
sympathies were with the prisoner, and
ho did not think his oath or anything
else would prevent his heilig Inclined in
his favor. He was promptly disquali?
fied. Mr. Mclniosb interrogated the
venlrcmen very closely upon the extent
of their newspaper reading, and every
one, fr, .a the bench to the bar, seemed
glad when a man was found who did
not read the papers, for "you have no",
missed much," Mr. Mcfntosh told one
of them, which was a joke.
