Under the Arizona law, change of venue to another county cannot be asked except by the defence. It is estimated there are only 7500 possible jurors in the county, of whom more than half are employed by defendant companies. Of the remainder, a large proportion would be excused, accord ing to the experience thus far in se lecting a jury for the trial of Harry E Woo t ton. Bisbee hardware mer chant, one ot the defendants. Legal experts say that the available supply of jurors would make it impossible to try more than six defendants. An ending of this sort was predict ed yesterday by county attorney French, who, after adjournment of court yesterday until Tuesday next, announced that 47 defendants would be dismissed and an effort made to combine the trials of those indicted on a blanket information. Counsel for the defence have indicated they would demand separate trials, which, if granted, would further complicate the situation PLAN ETERTATME.T. El Paso post. T. P.
