Judge Bordwell Asks That Any
Attempted Tampering Be

Action Follows a Talk With
Darrow, but Significance
Is Denied
- LOS ANGELES, Nov. 9.Possible ef
forts, intentional or otherwise, to dis
cuss-the McNamara murder case with
prospective talesmen received cog
nizance from Judge Walter Bordwell,
speaking from the bench late today.
Heretofore this subject has not been
Speaking to the three Jurors and
three accepted talesmen In the trial
of James B. McNamara, the Judge ad
monished .them, under the law, not to
discuss the case among themselves or
to mention it in any way. Then he
spoke at some length as to outsiders.
"The court particularly admonishes
you not to talk with any outside per
son, or to allow any outside person to
talk to you about this case," he said.
"Should such attempt .be made you
must instantly rebuke the person
speaking to you. If you can anticipate
it. it is your duty to warn him in
advance, and it is your duty to report
to the court any such attempt, which
may have grave consequences to the
Because of a conference between the
court and Attorney Clarence S. Darrow,
chief counsel for the defense, immedi
ately preceding this instruction, sig
nificant possibilities' were seen in it
by some, but after court it was stated
that no knowledge of such attempt had
come to the ears of the court or coun
sel and that the warning was general
in its intent. 77'-
The dolorous proceedings of examin
ing talesmen were interrupted today
only by occasional jesting matches
among counsel.
"Do you know District Attorney
Fredericks?" asked Assistant District
Attorney G. Ray Horton of John S.
Redfern, a laundry solicitor.
"No," said Redfern. "except that he
once made an address before a men's
club in our church."
Attorney Lecompte Davis of the de
fense, who had been leaning back in
his chair, straightened up with alac
"What's that?" he cried. "Fredericks
in church?" . 77:7 ;y7;,-???7
Horton paid no attention* to the
laughter which followed.
"Did you ever see Attorney Davis at
your church?" he asked Redfern. and
laughed in his turn at the talesman's
negative answer. 7
Clark McLain, a Pasadena banker,
was added today to Brewster C- Ken
yon, a reputed capitalist, as a talesman
accepted by both sides as to cause, and
J. •B. Sexton, a retired farmer, made
the third. Jurors Robert Bain, F. D
Green and Byron Lisk, already sworn,
appeared in court only at the begin
ning and end of each, session, being
allowed to remain the rest of the time
in the jury room, where they played
card games and read magazines.
Growers Wish to Compete With
Spanish Product
WASHINGTON, Nov. 9.California
grape growers, with the co-operation
of the 'department of agriculture, are
experimenting to determine whether
they can compete successfully in New
York and other eastern markets with
the Spanish product. \ Several carloads
of Tokay grapes already have been
shipped east and placed in cold storage
to see how they will keep, and a car
load of the emperor variety arrived
in New York today.
Packed and shipped under the direc
tion of an expert from the pomologlcal
division of the department of agri
culture, every effort has been made to
preserve the grapes in such prime con
dition that they will find a market
by the side of the Spanish Malagas,
Which, it is hoped, they may in time
largely replace on the eastern market:
This important commercial expert-,
ment, tried this year for the first time,
is. the result of five years' investiga
tions of grape packing methods. After
all sorts of substances had been tried,
including cornmeal, bran, shirred paper
and various kinds of sawdust, it was
found that California redwood sawdust
was an even better material in which
to pack grapes than the cork used by
the- Spanish growers.
Efforts also will be made by the
agricultural department to get Cali
fornia - grape growers to raise some
varieties of grapes which keep longer
than those they now produce.
