On Tuesday morning, L. L. Collins,
representing a client, tiled u motion,
to disqualify the regular panel on the
ground that it had not been drawn in
the manner prescribed by law. and
that undue influences had bten u-.ed
after the selection of the same.
Kor the purpose of nroving the
allegation. 'residing .ludiro W. A.

and stated that the three judge met
and discussed the list of names

possession of Judge Drown and Dish
op and making some changes or ad
ditions. Judge Green acknowledged
that he knew this was not in accord
with the method given in the statute
but said that he was following the
custom which had been in use in the
county for years.
A letter was then submitted to the
court, written on the letterhead of
the prosecuting attorney and reading
"Caruthersville, Mo., Jan. 29, 1013.

MISSOURI. AS 8ECOND CLASS MATTER
Hayti, Pemiscot County, Missouri
Circuit court was without a petit
jury Tuesday and Wednesday owing
to the unusual efforts of the prosecut
ing attorney to have one possibly
the; right one.
In "-electing this jury, as is general
ly known, the law requires that "0U
tiutnus shall be placed in a box and
wi-U mixed and from this number. I'l
drawn out by the co.irity clerk without
ehosing, shall compose th- panel.
To begin with thi section of the was,,
as it has been in the past, ignored,
and it appears that inlet (".led jgirties
furnished the associate judges with a
lil of th:-.e to form the j iry.
In order that at least certain
ber of this selected jury get seats
early and stay for the entire perfor
mance, the brilliant and thoughtful
prosecuting attorney takes a step out
of hi-, way and sends his "friends" a
When asked by Attorney Lou Col
lins if a special letter had not been
received from Judge (lOssotu, some
of the jurors said "no, ' while others
"could not remember." Hut the li-j
max was reached when Mr. Collins
drew from bis inside coat pocket a
white envelope and took from it and
read the following:
Caruthersville, Mo., l-2lMSi:S.

ty court as a juror for the February

Somewhat of, a sensation was
created at the Courthouse this morn-
"g wnon letters were produced pur

prosecuting attorney to those selected

After hearing the letters read and the
evidence of Judge Given as to the
manner of selecting the jury, Judge
Kelley disqualified the panel' and or
dered Sheriff Stubblelield to select a
new one to report Thursday morning.
The law requires that :.'00 name.-, of
citiens shall be placed in a box, and
the County Clerk select L'4 petit jurors
from that list, but this has never been
done. From evidence adduced this
morning it seems that interested
parlies have been in the liable of fur

They are and have been all

whitewash the presiding judge at
his expense, and if possible, to

Far from it.
The- jury was disqiuililied bo
cause they had boon improperly
selected by the county court, and
the presiding judge of the coun
ty court admitted on the witness
stand that at the time the jury
was selected he KNEW he was
not complying with the law
and that the law in this ivspeet
hud never been complied with
since he had been on the boneh.
This is a clear misdemeanon on
the part of the county cpurt and
one for which they should be
prosecuted and should pay the
penalty. Of course Judges
Urown and Bishop are deserving
of much sympathy. They are
new on the bench and naturally
presumed that the presiding
judge and county clerk knew the
law and how to select a jury, and
it is only reasonable to suppose
that they keenly regret being
mixed in any such unpleasant af
fair. This is not the only instance in
which the presiding judge lias
ignored the law. Wo have in
mind the letting of the election
advertising last. October, when,
to punish the Herald for its sup
port of the democratic ticket,
after Judges Wilks and Foust
has passed on the matter and
made a certain order according
to law, hr. the presiding judg
instructed the clerk t ignore
sumo, when in so dome I he clerk
violated the dttlies of his. own of
lice. at the expense oj (he taxpayers
of Pcmhiot county.
Again, it is fresh in the mind
of the public that the presiding
judge ha a penchant for prose
cuting other county officials, for
small int factions of the law,
especially when he and his co
horts have a political ax to grind,
as they did in prosecuting .Judge
J. S. Gossom for accepting the
insignificant sum of ST.TiO for rig
hire for attending cases out in
the county, where the statutes i
provided no fee. and for which lie ,
hud paid the money out- of his
own poclcet. But in the present
instance, where the law has been
ignored and knowingly and open
ly violated and the cost to the
tax payers for 21 jurors two days
tit $2.00 ji day eacli and milage is
considerably more than 100.00,
to say nothing of tiie delay to the
court and the inconvenience to
witnesses, the presiding judge,
unlike Judge Gossom, does not
olTer to refund the amount to the
Now, the Argus was a staunch
believer in the prosecution of
Judge Gossom and was lustily
joined in its loud and long lamen
tations, by the Republican,
with the Democrat on the
mourners' bench. But when
their friend, the presiding judge,
gets entangled in the meshes of
the law, they have not a word to
say. Why not the presiding
judge answer to the law, just the
same as others, especially since
lie admits he knew lie violated
the law? Instead of that, the ef
fort is made by the three Caruth
ersville papers to whitewash him
through and place the blame on
an innocent party.
The jury was not disqualified
on account of the letters of Judge
Gossom, as the Republican, Ar
gus and Democrat would
have the people believe, but on
account of being ILLEGALLY
selected by the county court,
which would disqualify them
acting as jurors, and any decis
ion they might render would not
lie legal or binding, but could be
sent back by the supreme court
