Xe ilrtntn of success beckons today nt the end of the long trnll attorneys have been fol lowing for tlie ln.t week in their wenry Jury hunt for the llerrln tnnFMcre trinl. Ne Jurers have been added te the first four selected early Inst week and examinations ran slew. Yesterday only five of the new batch of forty-three ,entrcmcn were examined and nil Ave were excused. Most of tlw day was Riven ever te n closed conference between Judge Hart well and all the attorneys en a tech tech iile.il iielnt sn tin ti-iider nt jur pntu'ls and the tactical niirnntnse gained by limiting the iippe-tlnc siile break n linnel. Hut during the lat hour of the after- nnnn lnn. interest 111 the Tireeecd- I lnps quickened. State's Attorney Duty tendered a panel of four men, three . tentutlvely n-lcctrd ht week, namely, Herrv Denten, V. 11. Davidsen.

Stale's attorney learned (Mulders had cone bend fi r "a number of ether men indicted." State was nerniitted te with draw its tender and te challenge him I for cause. Chillier Memed te he Inim- ' cent of any ililre te hide the-e facts tendered the panel back fn the defense, which was momentarily perturbed again. Itcsumrs Hypothetical Question Attorney White, for the defense, fell back upon his hypothetical question. "If you were going te be tried," etc. This time Venireman Hale pouted and said he didn't "recollect" answering "no" te thnt question. Defense threw out a challenge, for cause. State objected. Judge Hartwell looked up from his desk, his hair mussed, his glasses low en his nose, and questioned Hale. "Have you nny preference which side loses In this case?" he asked. "One tide," Mid Hale, "has get te lese," He Insisted he had no opinion. After some additional questioning Judge Hartwell said! "I think his answers make him a qualified Jurer, nnd there's only one reason why I must disqualify htm and that's Incompetence." Defense Attorney White again chal lenged for cause, and the Judge over ruled the challenge. White grew angry nnd in n loud voice questioned Hale. The latter, tears In his eyes nnd ejnliarrassed, mumbled he "hnd an opinion." White challenged him for cause once mere, and the Judge Interrupted. "Court excuses the Jurer for cause," spoke the Judge. "On the grounds of his inability te understand simple questions," the Judge began. Then he turned te the bench he had left, though a moment, and suddenly sheuted: "Well, nil right." It was a signal for adjournment. He Instructed that the four Jurers, Tem Weaver, Henry Itlddte, Oscar Hwnnner, all farmers; Geerge Cox, a non-union miner, and the three tentntlve Jurers, Berry Deaton, W. II. Davidsen nnd Sam Watkins, all farmers, be placed In custody for the night. There were no Jurers selected, but the fencing of the attorneys amused the prisoners.

Thereupon, de fence ntteneys conferred. They then 'accepted I'hemMcr tentatively and I passed him te the State for cxamln.i- I Itien. I "I have nn opinion as te whether the f killing was lawful or unlaw till, nml i It's a tixeu opinion : but I have no opin ion as te tlie guilt or Innocence of the I five defendants new here In this trial," was the Mihstarce of rhemiter s re plies te State's questioning, nnd State Immediately surprised the defense by tendering I'hcmistcr for tinal accept ance. Hut defence new demurred. "I believe." said defense Attorney White, as if he had net heard all about it two minutes before. "I believe jen stated a moment age that you had an opinion as te whether the killing was unlawful or net." "Yes," iin-wered Phemieter. "Is that opinion fixed?" "Yes." "Challenge for caue." said Attorney White quietly, turning tu Judge Hart well. State's Attorney Duty objected. Attorney Explains Objection "My objection," Duty explained, "is bail solely en the point that a rhnlli-nsi for caue an only be exer cised when a man admits te nn opinion en the guilt or the innocent e of the de fondants, and tins man does nut." The objection was overruled. Herbert Hale, a farmer in the sum mer and a non-union miner in the winter, was next examined for the de- . fense. "If jeu were going te be tried feri murder," explained defense Attorney' White, "nnd I w'as jour attorney , j would you want me te accept tweUel jurors te try jeu whose minds were j just like yours?" Attorney White liked the novelty of this method of determining whether the veniieman was biased. He repealed it. "Xe," replied Hale, and everjbettj In the stuffy courtroom laughed. "Hut I think I could glve a fair trial," Hale added, somewhat te dc- ' fense's confusion. i Hut Instead of trying n challenge for cause defense shunted him te the State. Hale declared te State's Attorney Neely that he "believed a man who Is a 6trike-breaker has just ns much right te live as a union man," and that he i hnd no opinion en the queitlen of the I guilt or innocence of the defendants.

On March 21, 1921, we reduced our rates from 70 cents for the first mile and 40 cents for subsequent miles te SO cents for the first mile and 30 cents per mile thereafter. Subsequently we made Three ether Reductions. Today our rate is 25 cents for the fcrst 25 mile and 10 cents for each additional 25 mile. After the first 25 mile you ride in a YELLOW at the rate of 25c per mile! Our rate is lower than the rate charged for one passenger by any company in New Yerk City, and is the Lewest ever established in Philadelphia. We have made these reductions volun tarily, because cab rates in Philadelphia have always been, and still are, tee high. The result has been lower operating cost per mile and per passenger be cause you have given as a larger and larger velums of business. We shall always share with our riders the profits which greatet volume at lower cost produces, YELLOW CAB rates are automatic. W espact te make still further reductions, as you give ns mere business.
