Waynman, where Judge Kersten asked
each man If he had been called up by
any one In connection with his possi

then Instructed to report in court to

that he:proved by a detective that ev

Counsel for Browne asserted that
the veniremen had been "seen" by

The First Stir.
The first stir in this development
in tie case occurred in the forenoon
session when Emil Weldnerberg, a ve

Swan Dahlberg. 'another. inenlher of
the panel, statld ho had bepls "seen"
by some agent whose real purpose lihe
did not know. Dahlberg said this
agent told hlhl, after questionlit' him
closely as to his belief in the guilt or
innocence of Brbwne that he need not
answer the subpoena. Dahlberg eoted
upon this advice and' in consequence
was brbyght' before themeourt today to
explain why he should not be adjudg
ed in contempt of court. There, he told
lls story: .
Judge Kersten liened over his desk
and said solemnly:
*"The court wants to know if this is
golag to be a fair trial or a travesty
upon justice. The situation has reach
ed a Ioint where an investigation is
neccssary. I don't want to blaite eith
er the state or the defense, but somie
one sl doing crooked work and I ant
loathe to go on wlth the case. When
a juror Is subl)oenoed no one has a
right to talk to hllnm. As It is, probably
every lmanu on this jury has boon up

Attorney Erbsteln of the defense
told reporters that the defense had
nothing to fear; that, hn would shlw
that the agents seeing veniremen were
working for the prosecution, One ve

whIen tile panel had been taken to the
state's attorney's office.,' There was
a hIlnrry call for a stenographer. A

the 'venlirenllt had been asked by tile
