Los Angeles, Nov. 9. The jury liox in the McNumara murder trial 'was filled Tliesduy with "talcHiueu accepted as to cause, and peremptory challenges were exercised by bith sides. Tuesday night but five of the tuelve men remained, and the' defense had reserved the right to challenge some of those if it desired. Should it not so challenge it cannot ex cuse these men later on. The defense biht every appreciable point for which it contended yesterday. The live men left in the box Tuesday night were: ltobert Bain, carpenter, who organized the tlrst In Nor union in Los Angeles. F. D. Oreen, orange grower, who said he had read magazine about tlie case without prejudicing his mind. Byron Lik, s retired mill owner, who said he had 110 opinion as to the cause of the Los Aii(?ele Times explosion. Sam Mendenhall, orange grower, who wa without an opinon. William Clark, who said he took aides neither way. The challenges were exercised alter nately. The state led oir with Frank Krakes, who admitted an acquaintances with Attorney Lc Compte ltavis, for the defense. The dffens excused George W. .lehnson a retired foundry physician; Walter X, Frampton, a farmer, who said he believed t the Times building was blown up by dynamite, and A. C. Win ter, a builder .nd contractor, who had an opinion concerning the guilt of Mc Numara which lie said would require much t'videjie to remove. This leaves the state with e'ftht peremptory chal lenges and the defense with fifteen. Immediately after adjournment of court the attorneys for McNamara de cided to bring the charge of prejudice on the part of Judge Bordwell. On re newing their accusation that Judge Bordwell is unfitted to preside over the trial because of his bias against the prisoners, MrXamaras counsel intend to assemble all the rulings of the judge on material issues since the trial opened and urge them as -evidence that ho is not disposed to act fairly. Affidavit are being prepared for James B. and John McNamara to sign, for the allega tion i made that they are satisfied that they cannot be fairly tried before Judge, Bordwell. The decisions of the court refusing to dismiss talesmen McKee, Winter, Framp ton, Johnson and Case for positive opin ions declared to bo inimical to the in terests of the prisoner ia four instances and for incompetency, as far as Dr. Case, is concerned, will be cited as ex amples of judicial prejudice. The court's ruling dismissing Talesmen Adams and Morton, whom the defense considered fair and impartial, will be offered as a farther support to the charge of bias in the mind of Judge Bordwell. These af fidavits, with the demand tha Judge Bordwell retire 111 favor of some other judge, will be presented Monday or Tues day, so Mr. Darrow said last night. '"'You don't expect that Judge Bord well is going to do anything else than overrule the motion for a chunge of venue on the ground of his prejudice, do you?" Mr. Darrow was asked. ,-I suppose he will deny the motion," admitted the lawyer. "We must set forth the facts, regardless of what hap pens. There are higher authorities than Judge Bordwell and we are prejiaring for an appeal to them. Further, don't for get that a great public is watching this trial, and it is a public that believes in and insists upon a square dal in the courts. We can't get a square deal here, and the people have a right to know it." Woman Very 111. Chicago, Nov. 0.

DARRE The) 1.50 WEBSTER'S Mew Standard PLAN IS APPROVED As Presented to Court by Tobac co Trust THE LAW IS COMPLIED WITH Dissolution Is Ordered Without Delay, but Government's Reservation Is ' Held Not to Be in Court's Power to Grant. New York, Nov. !. The litigation wluch tho federal government began four and a half years ago to break up the tobacco trust approached the stage of completion yesterday, in the final ac ceptance by the United States circuit court, with a few modifications of the much-discussed plan which the trust it self drew up for dissolution in. accord ance with the mandate of the United States supreme court. None 01 the judges regarded the pltn as perfect, but all declared an ideal plan beyond attainment and tho one submit ted seemed a practical compliance with the law. The judges asserted their be lief that the plan is honest and there is no question of the good faith of its authors. The features of the opinion are that the dissolution must be consummated without delay j that Attorney-General Wickersham's request for the govern ment's reservation of the right to apply for relief within five years if the plan doesn't result in harmony with the law, is declared not within the authority of this court to grant; that the court en joins the 29 individual defendants for three years from acquiring additional holdings in the companies into which the trust is split and that the independents' application for the dissolution of the I nited Cigar Stores company lay outside the authority of the court, though indi vidual action might be taken later against that company as an individual corporation. ' Counsel for several independent com panics declared an attempt would un doubtedly be made to have the decision reviewed by the United States Supreme court.

Glover in the litigation over the will of Glover's mother, Mrs. Mary Baker U. Eddy, for a hearing on Tuesday next, on Mr. Chandler's motion to remand the case to the superior court for trial and decision.

NEW STANDARD OIL CASE. Company Takes Missouri Ouster Verdict to Supreme Court. Washington, Nov. 9. More Standard Oil troubles were before the supreme court of the United State yesterday for consideration. Last spring the court directed the dissolution of tho Stand ard Oil company of New Jer&cy. This time it is to pass on the action of the state courts of Missouri in ousting the Standard Oil company of Indiana and the Kepnblic Oil companv of .New t ork from doing business in Missouri. Thev were charged with having violated the state anti-trust laws by conspiring to control the price of petroleum m the state and with monopolizing petroleum. In addition to requiring the corporations to go hence, the Missouri courts fined each company $50,000. The corporations now attack the constitutionality of the Missouri anti-trust laws.
