MILLIONAIRES MAY
SERVE AS JURORS
ANOTHER VENIRE ORDERED IN
STACKPOLE CASE /
Deputy Declare* He Will Camp on
Orange Orove Avenue In Pasa- *
dena— Six Men Thu» Par
Are Chosen
By order of Judge William James Ir.
department 1 of the superior court late
yesterday afternoon a second special
Venire to select the Jurors for the trial
of Eugene Q. Stackpole wai ordered
and twenty-five blank orders were
handed Deputy Sheriff Hutchlnson to
serve on property owners of Pasadena.
The more fact that 'out six unpreju
diced men have been secured from the
seventy already examined Is an ex
ample of the sentiment against Stack
pole, and yesterday 'the chief cause for
peremptory challenges by the defense
was the decided liking for the death
penalty in murder cases shown by the
Jurors. ■'' •, '
Six Jurors Chosen -.'
As the case now stands seventy men
have been examined. Out of that num
ber six have been selected, examined
and sworn In as Jurors to try the case.
Those selected are: .
C. L. Hart, real estate dealer. Fifth
and Chicago streets, Los Angeles.
' R. W. Dawson, Long Beach.
M. V. Fisher, Redondo.
Elmer Thompson, orange . grower,
Azusa.
J. K. Brenlzer, retired merchant, 1629
Berendo street, Los Angeles. •
Charles H. K. Leech, grocery clerk,
Pasadena.
In the case according to law, each
side Is entitled to challenge or dismiss
a juror without cause, simply because
they do not Jike the man's appearance,
up to the number of twenty each.
Thus for sixteen men have been chal
lenged by the defense, leaving them
four more challenges, while the prose
cution has exhausted all but five. As a
result a third venire, an almost un
heard of condition In the history of
lofcal courts, has' been called, and to
morrow morning it will be reported. — Z
Mrs. Scheck to Appear Monday
It Is therefore agreed by attorneys In
the case that a full Jury wIU have been
selected to try the case before the day's
session closes, and thereafter the prose
cution will open the case. Saturday be
ing a half holiday it is stated that Mrs.
Aurella Scheck, the chief witness in
the case, will not take the stand untli
some time Monday, when she will be
called upon to tell her story.
Yesterday morning the examination
of the officers who called the first spe
cial venire was taken up. All proved
that they had nothing to do with the
caße other .than securing an ordinary
list of jurors. None showed any preju
dice, and they were dismissed by the
court.
But no chances are to be taken of a
second delay, and yesterday all ! the
subpoenas were given to Deputy
Hutchlnson and all will be served by
him. .... . '
Millionaires as Jurors
- When • the big deputy left he an
nounced his Intention of securing an
Intelligent jury by camping on Orange
Grove avenue, the home of the Pasa
dena millionaires, and there nabbing
up the unsuspecting victims and haling
them before court to serve as ■ trial
Jurors. .
Yesterday Stackpole seemed ■to be
bored with the proceedings. He sneered
when tpld that Sergt. Janney, his
former guard In the Utah penitentiary,
was In town. *
During the greater part of the morn
ing he chatted and laughed with his
attorneys and seemed to take interest
in the many spectators who were lean-
Ing far over the railing to get a glimpse
of him.
Following that, he contented himself
by making remarks about the Jurors,
and when he was led back to Jail there
was a look of contentment on his face.
Stackpole, according* to the state
ments of those who have known him,
is a Bmooth criminal and will put up a
desperate defense.
To Save Her Own Life
While the Stackpole case Is proceed
ing Mrs. Aurella Scheck is awaiting the
hour when she will be called to the wit
ness stand to face not only 'the man
whose slave she was, but also the
scornful looks of the many women who
will be In court. •
Since her- incarceration Mrs. Scheck
has become fully convinced Jthat she
had no bad motive In assisting at her
husband's murder.
It is rumored that when she takes the
stand she will testify that she ad
mitted Stackpole to her home on the
night of the murder under the fear that
If she refused she would be killed. It is
alleged that Stackpole told her if she
did not follow his instructions to the
letter there would be a- double tragedy
and she would be the second victim.
How strong a witness the woman will
make Is. yet to be learned, but the
prosecution is confident that their
oceans of circumstantial and real evi
dence will go far to win their case.
JAPANESE LABORER IS KILLED
He Falls to Heed Warning and Is
Struck by Train on Salt
Lake Road
T. Hashlmento, a Japanese laborer,
stepped on to the railroad track at the
Salt Lake station about 6 o'clock yes
terday afternoon, when he was 'struck
by an Inbound Salt Lake train and in
stantly killed.
It was thought the Japanese did not
realize the i rapid approach of the train,
although a station employe had warned
pedestrians.
The Japanese did not see the. engine
until it was almost upon him and then
he tried to Jump. He failed to clear
the track and was struck by the engine
and hurled to one side of the track.
When picked up he was dead. His
skull was fractured and he -sustained
n number of other injuries that would
have ultimately proved fetal.
The body was .removed to Orr &
Hinea' undertaking '-establishment to
await an Inquest. Nothing could be
learned about the decedent last night.

Excavating on the grounds of the
ulte of the new postofflce bulldlnff for
Los Angeles will be commenced within
the next ten days nay Government
Contractors J, M. t>ouffnn and T. A.
Brlngham of Seattle, who arrived In
Los Angeles yesterday.
Dougan & Brlngham stated that the
excavating work would be a ninety
day Job and thnt It will be nub-let to
local excavators. Offices of Contractor
Dougan ft Brlngham will be opened
within the next two dayi in the vi
cinity of tho Bite for the new federal
building. Formal notice of bids will
be made today.
The construction work nlone for the
new postofflce building calls for nn ex
penditure of $018,000. Additional ex
penses required for the completion of
the building will bring the cost of the
po3toffice up to $1,250,000. ,
Work to Be Pushed
The construction of the building,
which Contractor Brlngham declared
would be 'one of the most substantial
and carefully built in the United
States, includes the finish of the walls
throughout. The plumbing, heatlnff,
electric wiring and other features
which enter Into the completion of a
building will be done under separate
contracts.
"We Intend to see that work is com
menced as Boon as possible," said Mr.
Bringham yesterday at tho Nadeau
hotel. "Judging from the present sit
uation. It will be a matter of only
eight or ten days before the excavators
are at work.
"The ground has been examined thor
oughly, and In my opinion It is en
tirely safe. I fear no sinking, of the
walls at any time in the future, ns
wns -the case with the magnificent
structure in San Frnnclsco. In the
places where there is the slightest
doubt as to the stability of the ground
concrete piles are provided for in the
contract.
. Three.Year Job
"The contract for the excavating
work will be sub-let to a local concern.
Mr. Dougan and myself are ready to
talk to anyone who wishes to figure
on the work. It will be about a ninety
day job. We spent the few hours we
have been In the city looking for an
office, which will be opened either to
day or' tomorrow. We have been
favorably impressed with two or three
buildings in the block upon which the
postoffice will be erected. _
"Tht erection and completion of the
postofflce building will occupy fully
three years. Only the best workmen
will be employed and the best mate*
rial will be used." ' i.
When his attention was called to the
fact that cracked marble was used In
many instances in the finish and dec
oration of the famed federal palace In
San Francisco, Mr. [ Brlngham said
careful inspection would be made of
every piece of material that will enter
into the building of the Los Angeles
postofflce.
Great Care to Be Taken
- "It Is possible that efforts will be
made to work in some imperfect mate
rials on the contractors," said Mr.
Brlngham. "Mr. Dougan and myself
will be on the- lookout for Just such
schemes. Whenever anything . unde
sirable or about which future questions
may arise Is found It will be discarded.
Los Angeles deserves one of the finest
postofflces In the United States. It is
the intention of the Dougan & Brlng
ham company to see that value shall
be received for every dollar expended."
The firm of Dougan & Bringham is
well • known throughout the west as
government contractors. The home of
fices of the firm are in Seattle. For
the past several years the firm has
been prominently connected with the
construction of army and navy head
quarters and barracks.
The, dry docks located at Port Or

Mr. Brlngham Is a former resident of
Los Angeles. Twenty-three years ago
this city was his home. At that time
he left it to go north and has been en

HAMLIN NAMED
CITY ENGINEER
Successor of the Late Harry Stafford
to Resign Government Position
Held During the Past
Six Years
Homer ITnmlin will succeed the late
Harry Stafford as city engineer.
He was appointed 1 by the board of
public works yesterday afternoon and
has accepted tho ' position. The place
was offered him by the board Wednes
day afternoon, but Mr. Hamlin asked
a little time for consideration and gave
a favorable answer to the board yes
terday.
Mr. Hamlin will not be a stranger In
tho city hall when he Is sworn into
office, which will be sometime today.
For more than two years he was em
ployed in the city engineer's depart
ment undor City Engineer Compton.
Later whon, Frank OlmsteadiWas elect
ed city engineer he appointed Mr. Ham
lin his chief deputy and Mr. Hamlin
served in this capacity until about nix
years ago, when he resigned to become
Identified with the government reclama
tion service.
Since his connection with the govern
ment Mr. Hamlin has been with the de
partment of Arizona, and some of his
best work is found in the Irrigated
sections around Yuma. He is the auth
or of several learned treatises on irri
gation and other engineering topics.
As city engineer Mr. Hamlin will re
ceive $3000 a year. As a government
engineer his salary has been much
greater, but the fact that his family
lives in this city and that In the re
clamation service he was compelled to
be separated from them for months at
a time, induced him to accept the
board's offer, which came unsolicited.
Only two men were considered for
the place. Mr. Hamlin was one and W.
S. Klngsbury, chifif deputy under Staf
ford, was the other. Mr. Klngsbury
was urged by the board to accept the
place, but as he hopeß •to be elected
