Will be Used in Wrang
ling Over One Juror's
Question is Whether Con
stitution Guarantees to
.One or Both Sides to the
Proceeding an Impartial
LOS ANGELES. Oct. 13. After two
days of court sessions in the trial of
James B. McNamara for the murder
of Charles 1?. Haggerty. a victim of
the Los Angeles Times explosion, no
juror had 1k?cii selected tentatively,
and no decision reached as to the
eligibility of the first talesman ex
amined. Though the session moved
forward with no delay, the magni
tude of the issues involved in the
examination of Z. T. Nelson, the first
talesman, made the proceedings de
liberate. At night when arguments
on Nelson's status were unfinished,
court adjourned until tomorrow. At
torneys informed the court that two
hours should suffice to finish the
arguments tomorrow morning.
At the close of court Sheriff Ham
wel escorted the prisoner to the
county jail, unmanaeled. A provision
in the constitution of the state of
California, which differs somewhat
from that of the United States and
sections of the state penal code re
garding the qualifications of jurors
started a contest over the meaning
which will affect, not alone the tales
man under examination, but every
nrosivective juror, and for this rea
son, is stubbornly contested.
Attorney G. Ray Horton. for the
rosecution. occupied most of the
afternoon, making an argument for
the state. By chance, one of the
cases cited "by Horton to show the
Jaw regarding the eligibility of tales
men was that or Juror Arthur, in the
trial of Abraham Ruof. now serving
a term of fourteen years in San Quen
lin prison on a charge of bribery in
connection with the San Francisco
graft cases.
Another case cited was that of
"Red Shirt" Gordon who. with a
land of fellow convicts fought his
way out of the Folsom penitentiary to
freedom in one of the most sensational
breaks the west has ever seen. The
constitution of California guarantees
a fair trial to "all persons in liti
gation." whereas the United States
constitution guarantees a fair trial to
the "defendant." Horton contended
that the law of the state intended that
any man may serve on the jury under
the usual restrictions, who is not of
a "state of mind which prevents his
acting with entire impartiality and
without prejudice to the substantial
rights of either party." He contended
the rights of the state must be pre
served, the same as those of the de
fendant and further that the crim
inal code made an express provision
for jury service in a man of Nelson's
frame of mind. Attorney Joseph
Scott, for the defense, quoted Nelson
as saying he had an opinion con
cerning the McNamara's guilt, that he
had such an opinion for four months
and it would take strong evidence to
dislodge it. Judge Bordwoll announced
that he would go over the record on
ibis nolnt.
Attorney Clarence Darrow. chief
counsel for the defense, made the arg
ument against accepting Nelson as i
juror after he had been challenged on
the round of bias earlier in the day.
"No section of the criminal code can
change a man's constitutional rights,'
was his opening sentence. "The defen
dant must be tried hv a jury and not
by a ratification meeting. Never be
fore have I seen an officer asking the
defense to take a juror who has sworn
that he held an opinion as to the guilt
or innocence of the defendant, and that
it would take evidence to remove that
oMiikn. The legislature, in enacting
the penal code, perhaps thought to
take away some safeguards that sur
round life. I (presume we could con
vince the district attorney here or the
dofendan's innocence if we had evi
dence enough."
He intimated that an adverse ruling
to his contention would be considered
ground for appeal. Horton. in his ad
dress to the court assured the court
on this iwint.
"No court of appeal," he said, "would
ever undertake to investigate such a
case unless there was great "
"I don't think the court cares to con
sider the possible action of a court
of review." interrunted Darrow. To
which all the counsel agreed. Mc-Na-
mara. throughout the session, sat
acainst the rail, clasping his hands
and looking steadily at counsel. There

Rose of the United States circuit
court here today rendered a decision
in favor of the government in its
dissolution suit against the Standard
Sanitary Manufacturing company and
others in the so-called "itathtiih

Judge Rose, and Judge Goss dis

SAN FRANCISCO, Cal.. Oet. 13
President Tart found what may prove
to be the heartiest welclme of his
trip awaiting him here on his arrival
tonight. He spent the entire day trav
eling down from the northern bonier
wehre Governor Johnson and a party
of friends welcomed him. Much in
terest was manifested in what John
son would sy in Introducing Taft
because Johnson is notoriously insur
gent. The governor used but few
words and invariably referred to Taft
as "the president of the United
States." Jonhson first appeared on
the platform with the president at
"Ladies and gentlemen," he said,
"welcome to the president of the
United States."
At the conclusion of the president's
remarks the governor called for three
cheers and they were given lustily.
At the state capitol at Sacramento
the president spent two busy hours.
He sike on the capitol steps. Intro
ducing him Johnson pleaded for quiet
among the crowd, owing to inability
of the president to speak clearly be
cause of hoarseness. The president's
voice is beginning to show the effect
of the long strain he has undergone.
Governor Johnson did not attend
the banquet in honor of the president
tonight. However, he will speak with
him tomorrow at th ground breaking
exposition site ceremonies. The gov
ernor probably will accompany the
president to Los Angeles. Taft's ac
ceptance of the Invitation to turn the
first shovelful of earth as one of the
prime motives that led him to take
his 13.000 mile swing around the cir

referred to the exjosition and each
time lie was vociferously cheered. The
president will remain here until Sun
day night.

The petition will be forwarded from

It is stated that ninety per cent of

Hankow. This is only a small part
of the sum which will be sent shortly,
and which agents of the revolution
have been collecting. Most of the
subscriptions were made anonymously
because of fear even in this country
of official vengeance on the contribu
