An astonishingly number of seemingly intelligent cltiaens had decided whether the sallow-faced Dr. Meyer Was guilty or not without ever having heard a word of evldenc or ever connected with any one of the persons supposed to know anything about the ease. Many others had declared that they had conscientious scruples against capital punishment; others were exclu led from the Jury-box because they were very much prejudiced against circumstantial evidence; one or two because they were distrust ful of ex pert testimony, others became they knew some ot th District-Attorney's fore or the famous lawyers engaged In the defense, and others s,lll because they I'.td insured their lives, lit the Mutual, .Jtna.
