COTJBT CHICAGO Nov Coughlin was placed on trial at 11 a m in Judge E S Tuthilli court for al leged complicity in the conspiracy that encompassed the murder of ODr P H Cronin on May 4 1889 arid the work of securing a jury was begun This is sec ond trial for the same offense former hearing it will be remembered hewasJconvicted and sentenced to im prisonment for life but was granted a new trial by the supreme court on tho ground ol incompetency becauseol prejudice of several of the jurors The Counsel The attorneys in the case arrived soon after 10 oclock For the state there appeared States Attorney Kern Assistant States AttorneyBottum and Kickbam Scanlan who DAN COIIGHLIN been retained as special counsel The defense was m the charge of Daniel Donanoe and exJudge Russell M Wmg Tha defendant was not brought jnto court until the law yers were ready3 to proceed He was brought over front the jail by Bailiffs Curley and Cool Coughlin looked splendid physical condition New of Jurors Heeded When the court adjourned at 13 oclock ten talesmen had been exam ined by the states attorney of whom nine wereexcusedTfdr cause each hav ing admitted that he held an opinion amounting ttf a prejudice as to the jpiilt or innocence of the accused to whom he could not give a fair and Impartial One juror John E Parr a painter of street an birth answered Mr Bottums questions satisfactorily and was accepted temporarily by the state A notable feature of the session was tha fact that of the ten talesmen examined five were Irishmen all of whom confessed to a so itrongas to disqualify themas Prospect for a Lonr TrU1 In View of the by the salesmen the prospect as that the trial will be long The regular jury panel was exhausted at 12 and Judge Tuthill issusd a venire for urors returnable at 10 oclock Satur day Tht trial will be verj tame com pared with the exciting eient of four pears ago So crippled is ion in the matter of ev that when the state doses the court may take the case from the jury and order an acquittal Such a result is ooked for by the defense would not surprise the state Little Hope of Conrlctlon Many of the important fitnesses for the state in the former trikl are dead and the whereabouts of othergfare un mown and the difficulty ofsecnring a conviction is recognized Their testi mony of course remains1 in the record and this will be put n by the state by placing the official stenographers on the j stand and having them identify the documents containing the testimony as he official record of the case but this at the best ew witnesses who are available will e sworn and examined Not a single new witness will be exammedEo waver1 StatesAttorney Kern being ithout a particle of othat presented by the stffteat the irevioui trial The gu ireme court in granting ihejnew trial vill also seriously embarrasslothe state n its presentation of the case Hay Put CouKhlln on the StiSd The present trial promises one eniation It is said thit will take the witness stand andMiesti y in his own defense What his story will be looked for with great interest It is known of burse that he will make under oath he same explanation he gave to 3apt Schaack of how he came to en gage from Liveryman Dinan on the fternoon of May 4 a horse and or a man who would call for it later n the evening Coughlin act that Dmans horse and buggjy ad teen used by the man who ailed for Dr Cromn came out xplained that a man giving ame as Smith claiming to have ome from Hancock Mich the home f Coughlins parents had called fio ftnd requested him i to get him a horse and bnggy But under the searching1 crossexamina tion to which Coughlin will be sub mitted this story will probably fall to At the first trial Burke OSul and Coughlin were anxious to testify but were not permitted to do so by their attorney John P JBeggs Lhad been convicted of embezzlement in Cleveland some yearsbefore and his crossexamination would develop this fact as it was known to States Attor ney Longenocker so that Beggs evi dence would hurt rather than help him before the jury Should the other three testifyand Beggs remain off the stand the jury could not help but ascribe it to consciousness of guilt and fear of crossexamination Therefore to save Beggs none of the accused tes tified This condition of things doesjiot now exist Coughlin alone is on trial and he will himself tell the jury his version of the facts and cumstances that weaved around him the mesh that came so nearly being twisted into the hangmans rope The Murder ol Dr Cronin Tie crime for which Daniel Coughlin again placed43n trial was
