The Very Meagre Result of a
Long, Hard Day's Work.
)!<*guii in the Circuit Court Yesterday
lleftiro ii fj?rg* Audience.
The Work Given in Domil?The
Mxcukpm Offered.
There was probably never a a Action
at law before the Circuit Court of Ohio
county that atirrud up more general in
threat than the trial of Dr. George I.
ii irrison bafjun in Part If before Judge
V/iUipUSII m\jluiugi
All day the court rooa and lobby
were crowdod, although nothing was
done save the work of drawing a jury.
Twenty jurors are to bd drawn, and
out of mora thin a hundred examined ,
yesterday, only live, Messrs. Jamea W.
Robinson, David Bell, Brice Supler, R.
J. Ballard, and W. F. Krieg, were se- \
iected. (
Sheritl Steenrod brought the prisoner i
into court at 9:20 a. m. They were alone, ,
the Judge and the attorneys not arriving
till nearly 10 o'clock. Dr. Garrison i
worn 11 plain suit of black and kept on a j
black overcoat, the atmosphere of the <
room feeingjust a little chilly. Holooked '
about afl well as when locked ap barring 1
a plight lo?s of il-ah and a little paleness ]
that shows in his bands and face alike.
At the reporters and others whom he j
knew, entered the space inside the rail- j
intr, he greeted them cordially, almoat <
cheerfully, but it was plafo-that he roc ]
f^nized the gravity of his position and <
fell keenly that he was the onWllliog y
centre of attraction for all eyes. \
After the judge arrived there was c
some good natured bantering among the I
attorneys, and it was suggested that the
trial be postponed to allow the jury and i
witnesses to attend the circus. Mr. t
Soinmerville approached the prosecu- t
tiny attorney with the request that a e
little boy summoned by the titate be \
allowed t? go, so that ho might see the j
parade. Mr. Howard jokingly aakod if
it wao a plan to influence the witnesses
testimony. bnt they finally screed to let
tbo boy go under promise that he be on I
hand promptly at 2 p. m. This waa the c
signal for half a dczan similar requests i
from other littlo witnesses, and linalLy a
all the witnesses were excused until this
morning at I) o'clock. _
The indictment was presented, chsrg- J
in< that the defendant, George I. Garri- j,
son, "feloniously, willfuliv, maliciously,
deliberately and unlawfully did slay, kill and
murder one George Baird." J
The Court asked if both sides were t
Teady, and receiving an affirmative an- e
svver the trial was declared begun.
The defence at once entered a demur- p
?er against the indictment on the ground
that the statute providing an abbrevi- y
ated form of indictment under which it v
is brought, is unconstitutional and further,
because tho indictment does not a
fully and plainly state the nature and a
character of the acccusation against the j,
defendant. j
The demurrer was recorded and the *
work of selecting a jury was begun. j[
The first panel of twenty jarors was j
called about 10 o'clock, and after Clerk tl
Mitchell had sworn tbem the inquiry e
W. T. Knglish was the first juror examined.
"I am prejudiced," Baid Mr.
Knglish, and, "in explanation, I am A
conversant with the evidence before the
coroner'i: jury, nnd have formed an
opinion nnd have publicly expressed it." ti
Ifno-mon waa nvamitiMl. Ha #

Charlea Senseny bad an opinion also

At this point Colonel Arnett raised
the point that it waa not well that the
juror* he excused without further examination
than that made by the'court.

competent even though he has formed
an opinion, for he may change that
opinion. It was decided that the jurors
should bo examined as to their competency
when on the panel or not called
.back later.

that he does not hear well and would
like to be excused. lie was excused by
mutual consent of tho attorneys.

injiocenco of the prisoner. He was ex- 1
cased. 1 ]

formed and expreased an opinion. Despite
a warning to the jury irom the
court that the jurors do not express the j
nature of their opinions, he went on to '
say, "Well, Dr. Baird was our family .
"Stop, stop, ho'd on," cried the court 1
and lawyers iu concert. Porter was excused.
Joseph Kraua was excused because he

verdict in accordance with the evidence, 1
despite the opinion, if the evidence i
were of auch a character as to change

Judge. I

His Note to Marquit Imperiali
Said to Be a Bluff
With the I ilea That the Government
la Pursuing a Vigorous and lieHentfnl
Policy?Why Blalno
Can Pay no Attention to It.
WianiKoioN, D. 0., May 4.?It doca
not appear in the Judgment ol the State
Department people that the note o( the
Marquis Rudini to Maiquia Imperiaii,
who ia no* the representative of Italy
in the ;Unlted States, published this
morning, has changed the situation
either (or batter or won*. An Associa
led Prees reporter this morning asked b
the Marquis Imperiaii to define hia'poei- u
lion u be understood it. The Marquis J
was polite and obliging^ bnt evidently f
felt himself bound to obtervethediplo- d
malic proprietiea closely and declined to ''
diBcoss the matter. "Yon must let tbo f,
communication speak for itself," said
be, "I can only say what the letter ssys.
I am in charge of the current business
of the legation." ,
So, abont the only result of the inter- ?
view was the tacit acknowledgement di
from the Marquis that be hsd received st
the note. As has been the case at every cc
step of the Italian negotiations the Stale fl,
Department officials decline to sllow of
themselves to be quoted as expressing M
iny opinions. Bui privately they do fli
sot appear to atlach particular impor- to
lance to the last note. In the first place w
that note waa not addressed to Secretary m
Blalue and it ia safe to say that its tenor th
would have been entirely different if it m
bad been. Nor was it Intended to be ni
ibown to him. It is regarded here as tb
ntended solely for domestic consump- w
;ion, being rather cleverly calculated to dr
nipire the Italian people with the idea tl>
hat their government is pursuing a Dr
rigorous and resentful policy, while tak- til
ng advantage of diplomatic vagueness nf
