The Brooks--MaXwell..Preller Case.
ST. LouIs, May 11.-The noted case
the of Hugh M. Brooks, alias W. H. Len.
Mr. nox Maxwell, charged with the mur
ion der of C. Arthur Preller at the South
s to ern hotel on the 5th of April, 1885,
ing was called in the criminal court yester.
Fhe day morning. The well known
d a details of the case had attracted a large
inst crowd to the building in which the
rich courtroom is located, where the case
the Is being tried. A detail of police
prevented all but privileged persons
from gaining entry. The crush there.
fore which was anticipated was avoid
ayes d and those anxious to catch a glimpe
er.. of the prisoner were disappointed. The
tad latter was brought into court at 11.30
Iou o'clock. Physically the prisoner shows
as few signs of his long imprisoment.
His mental condilion, he says, has not
Bx4 been impaired and judging from his
ad cheerful bearing no ohne would ima
Lng gins that he was about to be tried on
rk. the chargeof ha vingcommittcd at most
heinous crime. The case was called
at 11:55 and the defense objected that
no list of special jurors had been fur
nished them for their inspection and
the case wes continued until 1 o'clock
ay yesterday afternoon when the tesk of
its selecting a jury will be entered upon.
Defense sometime ago claimed the
privilege of trying the case before a
special jury composed of mena of more
I.) than average intelligence and the
'as selection of 12 from this class of men
en will undoubtedly occupy the remain
Sder of this week. The procurilg of the
b Jury commenced yesterday afternoon.
Is, Labor Troubles.
!d CHIcAGO, May 11,-The excitement
''s over thelabor trouble yesterday morn
lng was practically confined to the
IUtdber district. In that sec:ion a
S at crowd assembled• at an early
.ho-to see whether any of the old
'bands ln the yards and planing mills
would return to work. Along Blue
,land avenue and Twenty-Second
atreet the sidewalks were lined with
men and a heavy patrol of policemen
were on hand to quell any disturbance.
t The only mill to start up was that of
P. Wohler & Co. Eight hundred men
went to work at eight houts with n';e
hours pay. Thomas R. Lyon put
some of his teamster to work, but as
they are employed by the month the
circumstance did not attract much at.,
tention. Later in the morning a'l the
sash, door and blind factories in the
district started up and about 1590 mon De
went to work. The planing mill men
say they would start up but cou!d not,
as they are dependent on the lumber
yards fr material.
The Chicago malleable iron works
started up in fe'I blast y ilerday
morning, 880 being employed at nine
hours pay for eight hours work. Ti.L
Adorns and Weslake employs , as
well as those of the Union Brr.ss com
pany, did not return up to 8 a.m.
