H., Va., Aug. jurymen to try Henry Clay Beattie, jr., for the murder of his wife were secured within three hours after Beattie was placed on trial today. Only one of the entire venires, 32 tales- men, was exhausted in filling fie seven seats and it was believed afternoon that the entir jury would be secured before court ad- journed for Vie day. All but two of the men were farmers. Judge Watson asked each talesman whether he had formed any' opinion in the case. Five out of the seven told him they believed Beattie guilty. The bitterness with which the figru for the life of 'Beattie is to be carried on cropped out today when the de- fense demanded a list of the common- wealth witnesses and in agreeing to supply the list Prosecutor Wenden- burg astounded the court by the fol- lowing statement: "I wish to call the court's attention to the fact that a witness for the com- monwealth, John Josephs, has been threatened by an amateur -detective named Ridd. He told Josephs that if he did not forget that he saw Beat- tie on several occasions he would be sent to jail." The defense disclaimed the accusa- tion. When the examination of the jndymen began it became a.pparent that a jury would be completed with- in a short time. The defense was apathetic in the examination of tails- men asking practically no questions. attempt was made by the defense at the beginning of the trial to delay the proceedings. Judge Watson ov- erruled a motion for a week's ad- journment ordering Beattie to DS tried at once. Pale and wan from his month's con- finement but otherwise debonair, Hen- ry Beattie took his place in the dock. Then followed the formal motion to quash the indictment which was over- ruled. Beattie was ordered to stand up. PROMINENT FIGURES IN LEGAL BATTLE 1N WHICH LIFE OF BOY IS THE STAKE LAST EDITION W. H. Thomas, Leader of Eng land's Railroad Strike, Pre- dicts Renewal of Trouble.
