Drunkenness Will be
One of Geneau's
Three jurors passed lor cause out oC
seventeen examined yesterday for the
trial of E. II. Jones for murder in the
first degree. If this Is to be the proportion
of success in examining jurors
to fill vacancies modo by peremptory
challenges and all of the eighteen
challenges allowed be exercised, it will
require the examination of 102 more
to obtain a Jury.
In getting the flrst twelve passed for
cause, however, the proportion has not
been so high. Besides Judge Robinson's
original panel of sixteen a special
venire for fifty men was returned.
When, shortly after 4 o'clock yesterday
afternoon the twelfth man had passed

Fred Tprrlll, the twelfth man passed,
gave the foregoing opinion as one of
his replies on the question of Insanity.
This Juror considerably relieved the
monotony of the Inquisition by his crisp
answers. He stood probably one of
the warmest ordeals administered dur
Ing the proceedings.
Mr. Turrlll would believe a newspa
per report of an event until it was.
contradicted with proof, because It was
to the Interest of a newspaper to make
and sustain a reputation for accuracy.
Notwithstanding any opinion he might
have formed he would, as a Juror, render
a verdict according to the evidence
and the law. The law he would take
from the court, whatever his previous
views thereon might have been. Even
if morally convinced that the defendant
was guilty he would give a verdict of
acquittal unless the prosecution proved
guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
DEFENSE OF DRUNKENNESS.
Drunkenness, will be one of the defenses
of E. Geneau In his trial for the
murder of Ulysses S. Harris. This was
declared by Mr. Douthltt yesterday
afternoon, when Mr. Andrews objected
to questioning Theo. A. Simpson,
on cross-examination, about the defendant's
condition when he entered
the Pantheon saloon on June 30 last
and shot Harris,
The objection was sustained because
the prosecution had asked the witness
nothing about Geneau's condition as
to sobriety, the court agreeing with
the Attorney General that the defense
would have to make Simpson its own
witness before examining him In that
The prosecution rested its case at 4
p. m., when the trial was continued
until 10 o'clock this morning.
KENNARD WAS LATE.
Kennard, the negro witness called on
Wednesday by 'the prosecution, was
due on the stand at the opening of
court for the completion of his cross-examination,
but he was not present
nnd an ofllcer was sent to look him
up. He came In nineteen minutes late
and, In answer to the court, said his
duty of getting the ship's mall delayed
him. It looked blue for him a minute,
but when he stated he had tried
to be on time the court let the matter
Meantime another witness had been
called, whose examination was concluded
before Kennard resumed the
stand. Cross-examined about his
statement that Geneau was the author
of all his troubles, he admitted that he
had been confined for three days on
the ship Independence for an offense
nnd thnt Geneau was not on the Independence.
Mr. Andrews, In re-direct examination,
offeied Kennard's honorable discharge
from the army, but the court
ruled It out on objection that the
had not attacked the presumption
of witness's good character. All
that had been said In that regard was
by the witness himself.
A POLICEMAN'S EVIDENCE.
Policeman John Kaaua testified regarding
the street fracas before the
tragedy in the saloon. When matters
had been quieted on the corner, witness
advised -the bluejackets to go into
a saloon and enjoy themselves. As
Harris and Kennard walked off together,
Geneau shook his fist at them.
This was between 6 nnd 7 of the fatal
evening. Mr. Watson,
ing, referred to a record of testimony
at the preliminary examination In
the District Court, but could not
get the witness to admit that he

As ha proceeded from the entrance to

hand was In the breast of his blouse.
A sailor grasped Geneau's arm after
he had fired and someone wrested the
pistol from him. Geneau was held by
sailors until Captain Parker entered
and arrested him. In the meantime
Harris retreated by the rear, saying,
"They have got me." It all happened
within two minutes.
Robert Parker, captain of police, and
Frank J. Dillon, who was an eyewit
ness of the tragedy, were the remaining
witnesses for the prosecution.
At the close of yesterdny's proceedings
in the Geneau trial, Attorney
General Andrews requested the court
to rescind its order of the previous
day, which allowed the bailiff to furnish
the Jury with the daily papers
without excision of the reports of the
trial. He alleged that the papers gave

necessary for tho ambassador or minister
to forestall the dispatches and
even to look farther into the future
