DCS MOIN'CS , April 4. ( Special to The Dee. ) There Is Just now sonic speculation In the minds of the members as to what they did when they voted for the bill constituting the commission to codify the laws of the state. It Is shrewdly suspected that the ardent champions of the move had In view an end that was not wholly disclosed In the context of the law. The bill provides for n commission of flv * . which shall be legislature , Koveruor and supreme court nil In one. Two of the five arc to bo chosen by the house , ono by the senate and tvvo by the supreme court. Its members are to begin work not later than the 1st of September next and arc to receive $10 per day and actual expenses while engaged In the work. The report Is to be made to the Twenty-sixth general assem bly , and two copies of the report are to be furnished members-elect of the assembly. Section 4 of the bill provides "Suit ! eommlaslon shall carefully re\lse nml codlfj the IHVVB of lown , anil nhull rewrite the mime and divide them Into appropriate piuta nml nrrmiKc thrm under proper titles , chapters nml seetlotiH , omit nil parts repealeil or obsolete , Insert all nmemlemc'iitH ami make the lawn com plete.

Alleged Slajtrs of an Old Mini On Tilnl nt CrcHtiin , CnnSTON , la , April 4. ( Special Telegram to The Ilee. ) A Jury was empaneled In the Goodalo murder trial this afternoon. Dell Ualderson and Sam Kldd. Jhe men charged with the crime , pleaded not guilty. The de fense will endeavor to destroy the confessions of Ualderson , In which he implicates Kldd , by introducing testimony of his mental vveak- nesis. They will also endeavor to piove that Daldcrson Implicated himself In other crimes In which It Is known he had no hand. The trial will last several days. The crime was one of the most brutal mur ders In the unnals of the state's criminal record It occurred at a small country farm house near Afton , Q G. Goodale , the vic tim , nn old man 72 > ears of age , lived alone on a farm Ho was un agreeable old gentle man and respected In the community Among those who made call1) on Goodalo were Ualderson and Kldd , the men charged with the murder , The Impression prevailed In the neighborhood that Mr Goodalo had con siderable money secreted about the place , the story gaining credence from the fact that the old gentleman had lost some money In the Tingley bank failure , and that ho had withdrawn his deposits from other banks. It is evident these reports i cached the ears ot Ilaldctson and Kldd and they decided to rob the old gentleman In Ualderson's confes sion , which ho afterward denied , he tells ot the horrible crime as follows "Sunday afternoon. January 21. 1S91 , Kdd ! came over to the home of Al llulderson , where 1 was stopping , and together wo went to the Goodale notice Wo had not decided' on the manner of getting rid of the old man until wo reached the house , and then Kldd told mo to hit the old man Ural , and ho would finish him , nt the same time handing mo a hatchet. When we entered the house Goodalu was sitting nt thu table eating his sup'Jcr Ho said 'Hello , bojs , ' and made an effort to get up , when I struck him on the head with the hatchet and he fell Kldd then cut his throat with n pocket knife. I ( lion stepped out of the house while Kldd rilled the old man's pockets. Ho got about $100 In money out of an old leather pocketbook - book , but did not give me any of It. He promised to divide with me , but did not After the murder wo left the house and went to our homes. 1 am In my right mind and know that 1 am under arrest for murder " Halderson has subsequently made several varying statements concerning the crime , at times den ) Ing that he had any lund In the affair Ills statement of the killing Is thought to bo partially correct When Qoodiile was found an examination proved that he had founteen wounds on the head and two on the neck Prom thU It It evident that ho was struck repeatedly by the murderers , whllo Ualderson claims to have only struck him once. hoilety hvvill Arrculiil.
