one oi the defendants. in stating the
situation to ti;.. court. Solicitor Wells
said thai ?'.<? information had Just
been reeeiv? d rind (hat the prosecu

Although it i- within the presiding
judge's discretion to remove a juror
for cause .fudge Walts declined to do
so. cnying that the objection enme
loo late, and that the matter should
have been Investigated earlier. it
was a strange occurrence, for almost
every juror had boetl sworn on Iiis
' voir dire. Mr. Blake was accepted by
both state and defense without ques
tion. The very first question of the
oath la, 'are von related by blood or
marriage to li e deCeflSed 01" the defen
dants.'' aud in likelihood an aflirm
ative answer would h ive disqualified,
it may he remarked, however, that
both solicitor Wells and Solicitor
Cooper had Made inquiry regarding
every juror on the list ami in every
case Mr Blake was pointed out as a
'man who w is thoroughly conscientious
! and honest and who would do bis duty
fearlessly. His relationship to Avant
I was no' generally known: in fai t.
Avant and Blake it is understood.
