JURY ATTENDS FUNERAL
OF JUROR BROTHER
Los Angeles, Cal., Nov. 28.
vVhile the members of the jury
on the McNamara murder trial
attended the funeral of CharJes
Sexton, brother of permanent
juror J. B. Sexton, Judge Bord-'
well today qualified for examina
tion the eleventh venire in the
case: . As a result of the Sexton
funeral, the morning session was
limited to the qualification of the
venire.
Intense interest is felt in the
court's rulings this afternoon on
Edward Haskell, formerly of Al
bany, N. Y., who has. been chal
lenged by the state for actual
bias.' Haskell was. vfor many
years a practical miner working
throughout Arizona, Colorado
and New Mexico, and is now a
clerk in the Los Angeles asses
sor's office.
He declared he '"knew all about
dynamite, realizedfutly 'that dy5-?
namite never caused the Times
fire, and that it was an utter im
possibility that' it could.'"
He said he looked over the
-Times" ruins, saw the Veal' wreck- '
age, which must-have beencaused
by a fire, but which, 'he also in:
sisted, could have been caused by
a gas explosion. ,q
He defended labor unions, sa.y$
ing he believed working meni
ought to have the same right tft
organize, as merchants, .bankers
and other combinations of capL?
tal. "" -
However, he insisted that he
had absolutely no opinion;
whether dynamite was ever used
at the Times and said he could; ,
try ',McNamara on the evidence,
produced in court.
The state demanded that he bej
excused. because he said when hft
read in the Times of the buildirig"
being "destroyed by unionist'
bombs," he immediately took, the $
opposite view, "because he hadr
found when the Times said one
thing, that the real, fact was di-j
rectly opposite." , x
Should Bordwell refuse -his
statement that he can act fairly
and impartially, and sustain the
state's challenge, Attorney Dar- '
row asserts he will, enter into the
record an objection in which he
will say: "The court made one.j (
kind of law for, the state and anM f
other for the defense." jr
There were still three vacantes
in the box "when court reconvened-1
at 2 p. m. Of the fifty members3
of the eleventh venire examined
by the court at the morning ses-'
