THE FALL SEASON And-the Newest Styles for Autumn Are Coming in. 200 PLUSH SACQUES -AN Misses' and Children's s' uilgu McConiMll that the Cnmlu Cannot be Tried CHICAGO, Aug. McConoell his morning decided that all the dc- endants in tho Cronin trial must be ried together with the exception of rank Woodruff. He said that in view f Woodruff's confessions it would be nimifestly unfair to allow him to go on rial with the others. All the defendants then took excep- ion to the ruling of the court refusing hem separate trials, and the judge ranted twenty days in which to file tills of exception. The for the urious then expressed heraselvea as ready to proceed with the rial. The following is JUDGE DECISION. disposing of this motion, I shall not attempt to go into argument is into any extended argument as to the rounds of my decision, but shall simply Bontent myself with making thedeci- ion, and state in a general way why I doit. 'The state of the case is substantially his: Daniel Coughlin, Martin Burke, Frank J. Woodruff, alias Black, John F. Beggs, Patrick O'Sullivan, John Kunze and Patrick Cooney are jointly ndicted for the murder of Patrick H. Cronin. All of them except Cooney, are in court, and have entered pleas of not guilty. Daniel Coughlin moves for a separate trial, asking that his CAM may be severed from all the other defend- Martin Burke and Frank J. Voodruff each making a similar motion. Patrick O'Sullivan enters two one that he may be accorded a trial sep- arate from the defendants Burke and 3oiigblin, and the other that trial may be SEVERED FROM THAT OF WOODRUFF. "These several motions are supported by affidavits substantially containing, as eenceded by the state's attorney, the ividence which waa tendered the grand ury and upon which that body bases the The form of the ndictment, and particularly the oharao- of the evidence relied upon by the state, indicate that sev- iral of the defendants can be con- only upon the successful estab- ishment of a conspiracy to murder Dr. Ironin, and also of the further fact that ,hey were members of that conspiracy. Miese defendants, therefore, can in no respect be injured or prejudiced by evi- dence tending to show the complicity of others in the alleged murder, UNLKHH IT SHALL BE ESTABLISHED first, that there was a conspiracy and second that they and the others were united in that conspiracy. judge now presiding cannot pre- sume that improper evidence will bo ad- mitted at the trial, nor can he presume that the trial judge will not take every precaution when the case is finally sub- nitted to the jury that no defendant shall be unduly prejudiced by any evi- dence which during the trial shall be admitted as against some some of the which may not bo competent as to all the ttliers. I must also presume that the trial judge will not even permit the jury to speculate upon the truth or innocence of a defendant unless he believes there is sufficient competent evidence against him to sustain a conviction. Theae con- siderations are satisfactory to me in de- nying a severance of the trial so far as any grounds for separate trials are based upon the evidence of facts prior to the time of the murder and to all matters subsequent thereto except only THE ALLEGED CONFESSIONS OPWOODKUFP. "I am unable to see how the other de- fendants can be tried with him without the greatest embarrassment In his series of confessions he has in one way and another implicated nearly all the de- fendants. His confessions are compe- tent evidence against him, and almost necessarily when he is lifting in the dock with them would be fatally injuri- ous to the others. The prisoners are entitled to a fair trial. Associated with Woodruff they cannot have it. I am persuaded that authority, reason and simple justice require that the other de- fendants should be tried separately from Woodruff. "The motion, therefore, which I shall sustain, will be the motion of O'Sullivan for a trial separate from that of Wood- ruff. Necessarily that will lead to the sustaining of the motion of Woodruff for a separate trial, although it not deserve the consideration the other ap- plications do. The other stand denied." THE DECISION WAS A BUBPRIMC and for a few after delivery a peculiar quiet pervaded the court room and people instinctively looked around to see who would tint break the silence and what WM to 'follow.
