rapidly disposed of, the Jury took tbeir
place an l la tbe miilst of a dead silence air.
Longenecker arua and began bit statement.
Ha waa interrupted two or tliraa timea by
tli attorneys for th defense with ohje
tiona to tbe I in of hi remarks, wbii-h they
claimed were not in onler in an opening
statement, and tha Judge seemed to accept
their view, but decline.! to interfere, slat
ing tbat whatever tbe state said at thia tiro
it said at lie own peril. He bad exceptions
recoriled, bnwerer, a they ware noted by
Palais frnn 1o;enekr's fttateaaent.
Mr. Longenecker toll tbe Jury tbat the
tat wouM irov tbat Dr. Cronin waa as
sassinated ; that tbe munlur was tb result
of a oonapirary, and tbat the fir defendant
Cooghhn, O'Sullivan, Beggs, Burke, and
Kun- were th actual perpetrator of the
eriro. (Woodruff i to be trte.1 separately.)
He admitted, in eff ct, that the evidence to

Sullivan, Boland, and Feeley end said tbat
to the th mem tier were sworn to yield
obedience rising above all law, all onler, and
all public policy. The clan, however, as an
organisation was not on trial.
Motive For th Marder.
Iu looking for a motive forerun- Mr. ong
enecker said th Mate bad iu moat dittloult
ta-k, generally, but in thia case the motive
was apparent. Dr. Cronin was a bitter
opponent of tbe triangle. He had denounced
it for sen.) log own to Ejgland to use dyna
mite, and then leaving tne in to tbeir fata,
and tbi-ir women and children to poverty;
nay more, for. aa he alleged, conspiring
with British officials to make the eaUure of
tbe dynamiter certain bv sending descrip
tion of them to (Scotland Yard, ao that their
fa a was certain. In order to break tha
force of tbe doctor's charges they had de
nounced bim a a traitor to th Irish causa,
and finally procured his expulsion from th
Th Tim f th - Removal."
Commg down to tba time of Dr. Cronin'
murder tbe state's attorney said it would be
proved tbat Begg bad declared in writing
that Cronin' criticisms must be stopped;
tbat Burke rented tb Carlson cottage; tbat
O'bullivan made a contract with Cronin to
treat bia employe in case of accident, not
withstanding he ba1 uever bad an accident
at bia ie house, th object being to bav
mean whereby Croniu could be decoyed to
hi death; tbat Cougblin hired th rig in
which C'rouin waa driven to tb Carlson cot
tage and tbat Kuoxe was a habitue of tb
room ou Clark street opposite Cronin'
down-town offlc and was also tb man wbo
drove Cronin to tb oottaa.
