After thu dose of Tub Ciiitic's reptirl
yesterday of the Waul trial, tho shly
talesmen dniwn on Thunday wero ex
hnustisl w ithoitt securing a jury. Tho do
feit'o hnd itscsl twelvo of I heir twenty
peremptory challenges mid the (lovorn
mtnt tbreoof its five. Tho Court ordered
that sixty mora talesmen sliould be drawn
and summoned to appear In court this
moinliigiit 10 o'clock.
This morning a watchman was stationed
at the Cilniinal Court, mid, to every per
son who entered. Inquired: "Aro you a
juror?" Tho answer generally iwciveel
was "Well, I hate been summoned."
Tho juror was then carefully conducted lo
n seat within the bar by tho attentive
official. They begun to drop in by twos
and threes, nnd Mini tho seats allotted to
them vx?rc filled with ti body of represent i-ivciltli-ens.
Aiming them were rich and
Influential mm nud poor, haul-working
day laboreis. Some bad iippurently Just
renched their majority,. while hero and
there was an old gentleman whose ngo
would exempt him lrom-iurv duty.
Many ot them came with iipparent uii
willingness, but the court olllelals w'ero
cry hopeful of obtaining tlio requited
number of men from among them.
Tho crowd of spectators that assembled
at 10 o'clock w as, lomnn hut smaller than
Hint of yesterday, probably owing to tho
c-xpeitntlon of another day of tedious
struggling for n jury.
Shortly after 10 o'clock Chief Justice
Dingbam took his sent and the court was
opened. Ward cam Ing bis overcoat on
his mm and bis hat in hiindsoon nic ired
and took Ills customary seat behind his
Justice Itingham called attention to tho
fact that (Jeorgo (hint, the colored Janitor
of the (U'eirgtiow n Medical College, had
been drawn ou tho jury, nnd thut Dr.
Lovejoy of tho college had stated that his
absence front his Hitinn would bo a
Fcrlous inconv enlenco to tho college. Tho
Doctor requested thut O'nnt might bo ex
cused. The Court said that be would regtcl
very much lo intonvcnieiico tho college,
but under the circumstances he could not
excuse him without the consent of
Mr. WiNou said that since .Mr. Hunt was
ahcadyscitnl in thu jury box It would
seiiouslv embarrass the case, but left tho
lcsponsibillty with the prosecution.
District Attorney llogo did not Compre
hend why the responsibility of excusing
a juior should rest on the prosecution. I
Since Judge llogo did not desire tn take
ho fcponsibillty Mr. Wilson relieved
him or Iho dllllculty nud excused tlio
juror on tho pait of the defense.
'J hero being already a vacancy on the
jury the clerk- was instituted to call a
talisinun to 1111 the vacancy before Mr.
(lant was eve used. The first juror culled
from the new panel was IMward Alls-JV'rtJ'-
lie was sick, feeble, and nearly
blind, lie wits excused w Ithout examina
Vltc two next talesmen called, Patrick
Inscou and llemy ( . Thorn, weie re-
too sick to aitenn coutt,
certificates were piesentcd
to that eireel
John C. Siiilngni.ui was then called.
Ho iinswcicd nil questions satisfactory,
but stated that some. v ears ago lio had re
ceived n sunslioke, and since that time
has hud such n bail memory thut ho was
frequently unable to recollect the name of
his best friend, lie was exempted on that
I.eon.ud (1. Spencer was acquainted
with both Waul and Adlev. Mr.
Spencer answoied ull question satisfac
torily and wns seated us u competent
Anton lroitmullcrwns then called lo fill
the vacancy kit by Mr. (lant. Ho hail
lormed such a decided opinion that his
services were declined bv the Court.
Philip Simiison.au elderly larnier liv
ing cm the (Jood Hopo Ho.ul, had no de
cided opinions lu the case and was sealed
Tho uovernment then used its fointh
challenge by excusing .Mr. P. Cr.iwfoid
lrcnn the jury box.
Albeit P. Myers then tool; the stand for
examination. He was louud competent
and took his seal.
Thopancl being full, tho ile'fcnse exer
cised their right of challenge by excusing
Joseph IT. Oibbons was next called. Ho
und no opinion In regard to the ease, but
had heard thoiopoit of the jitnl shot
when Adler was wounded by Ward In tho
Marble saloon. Ho was an cmplojo of
the District Government and thought that
ho should bo excused, as his absence, would
scrlouslv affect the interests of tho Dis
trict. Ho was excused.
Charles C Clo.tkey had opinions elo
riveel from reading newspajiers, but had
no bias for or against tho eleloiulaiit. Ho
did not know Wind personally, but said
that ho hud Known tlio name of Prank
Ward almost ns long as ho had know u his
Judge Wilson contended that ajmor
who would go into the box with an opin
ion HxVd in his mind by nowspipct ni II
clcs wns clearly incompetent. Thu test
was not that tho juior say.s ho will act no-ecu-ding
to evidence after ho got Into tho
box, but it is the opinions with which lio
gees Into the Juty box.
Mr. Wilson did not desire to oxcuse Mr.
Cloakey purlkulaily, but wished thu
question of newspaper imlnloiis or Im
lucsslons to be decided. It tho ovlileuco
in thecaso couesnonds with .tlm nni.
liaper articles, ho said, nnd the Juror has
based his opinion on tho truth of those
articles then ho goes into the box, with his
mum uircaity ueterniuiceiitpon n xeullct.
Ho was not making this otiposlliou to .Mr.
Cloakey because ho thought tills optulon
wusudveise to tho defense, but because lu
tho behalf of jtistlio a juror should go
Into the box without any opinions what
ever concerning the cae.
Mr. Cloul.ey was then lurther examined
by the I met Justice. Ho would change
his opinion it thu facts were dlffeient,
but II the facts weio tho same as the opin
ion lio hud formal, of courso ho would
not change it, unless counsel, lu their ar
gument, presented very strong reasons
why he should do so, After considerable
questioning and discussion Mr. Cloakey
wns finally excused.
John Joy Ildson was excusud being n
member of the bar,
James It. Kitchen, an cx-llreman on a
Potomac Iugbo.it, had read tho newspaper
accounts of the tragidy nud bad an opin
ion that it would require oviileiicoto re
move. He lives in (Jeoigctown, and

by a fall from the Now York and Wash

Tlio exact natuie of his full, whether
purely accldenfnl or of n suicidal nature,
is u point In doubt. The train had Just

hud In some manner fallen under the
wheels, where he was ground into frag
ments. Tho train was immediately
Mopped, nnd everyone ran to the rescue,
but it was too late, for tlio man had been
killed instantly. His head was com
pletely severed from his bodv, ns were
also both his legs, while Hie 'bodv was
so badly mushed and cut as to have lost
its sbnpe entirely.
In his xie'k( is were found n card case,
from which was obtained his name anil
nildrcs; knife, kejs, some small change
and an accident insurance pollcv for
O.OOO, good for one dav nnd dates! De
cember 12, lo'V. This jioliey leads to tho
theory of suicide, though thenititreof
the fall is more thut of Occident. No one
on the train seems to have noticed any
thing at ull peculiar about Crogar'uti' lions,
