LAWYER PUTS THE KIBOSH ON
SIX WOMEN AS JU.RORS
Attorney George F. Barrett yester
day gave a legal opinion that barred
six hale and hearty suffrage ladies
from serving on a coroner's jury.
Coroner Hoffman had decided to
use women as the jury at the inquest
over the body of Mrs. Mary Halpin,
128 S. Ashland av., who was struck
and killed by an auto truck at Ogden
avenue and Harrison street Thurs
day. He selected Jane Addams, Vir

Johnson, "Mrs." Belle Squires and
Margaret McNamara. All were de
lighted. But Hoffman got a hunch
and called up Barrett, who acts as his
attorney. Barrett,, after much toil
ing through dusty "books, said they
were not eligible as coroner's jurors.
