UP FOR TRIAL
APPEARS IN GOOD HEALTH
FULL JURY NOT YET SECURED
It ft Believed That the Defense Will
Meet Squarely All Issues
Raised In the Indict.
By Anoctatsi PrtM.
SACRAMENTO, April 17.— Harry
Bunkers, the deposed state senator,
who was arrested for bribery, appeared
for trial In the superior court this
morning before Judge Hart and the
work of securing a Jury was begun.
Bunkers appeared to be In good
health and spirits and did not seem to
be worrying over the serious charge
When court opened this morning the
attorney representing Wright and Em
mons, deposed senators, secured an ex
tension of thirty days' time, in which
to prepare bills of exceptions.
Attorney Morehouse withdrew the
plea formerly made by Bunkers that
he had once been convicted of the
charge against him by the special in
vestigating committee of the senate and
then the task of selecting the jury
Nine Jurors were accepted and it is
believed that a jury will be secured
tomorrow and that the taking of tes
timony -will begin Wednesday.
It was evident from the questions
asked the Jurors by the attorneys for
the defendant that they expect to meet
the Isues raised In the indictment
squarely, with the expectation that the
prosecution will not be able to prove
to the satisfaction of the Jurors all of
the material points specified.
It has been stated for several days
past that District Attorney Seymour
had succeeded in producing one of the
$50 bills alleged to have been marked
and given to Bunkers by Jordan, and
Mr. Seymour was asked directly
whether it was true, but he would
neither affirm nor. deny it.
