THE CROHN SUSPECTS Seasons Filed in the Support of the Motion for a Sew Trial S0HE OF THE POTUf8 OF 00UH8EL Tlw Jury Alleged to Have Seen Improper, and Judge Lsngenecker cherfed With Improper Instructions to the Jury-The Kalffuafystsry-Hoth the Accused Leave Trenton. Chicago, Jan. 10.-Late this afternoon Attorneys Wing, Donahue and Forrest filed motion for a new trial in the case of Coughlin, Burke, O'SuUivan and Kunze, convicted of the murder of Dr. Cronin. The motion assigns thirty-nine causes of error in the ruling of Judge McConnell during the trial of the case. The grounds of the alleged error embrace every point contested by the attorneys for the defense, and range from an objection to the court's over-ruling tbe motion to quash the indictments upon the assertion that the defense has since the trial discovered new evidence whioh entitles them to a new trial. The first error alleged is that the court erred in overruling the motion to quash the indictment made on behalf of each of the defendants. The denial of Conghlin's motion for a separate trial is made the basis of four of the alleged errors, there being a separate count for eacb of the defendants. The refusal of the Court to permit the defense to show that Mills, Ingbam and Hynes were employed in the prosecution by private parties who were actuated by improper motives, is alleged to have been prejudicial to the defendants; the Court allowing these three lawyers to assii t in proseoution is said to be an error. Mr. Hynes is made the subject cf a special count In the motion in whioh he is said to have been moved by a spirit of personal hostility toward Coughlin, Burke and O'SuUivan, and was not fit to act as a prosecuting attorney. The over-ruling of the challenge for cause preferred by the defendants whose names are Riven in the motion, is further alleged to be an error. Side remarks Were made by the Slates Attorney' while examining. Tbe jurors are charged to have been improper. Judge Longeneoker's statement to tbe jury is oited as an error, and characterized as improper and illegal, and prejudicial to the rights of tbe defendants. It is also alleged to be an error in the case for the failure of the Court to enforce the rule excluding witnesses for the State from the court room during the trial. It is charged that improper remarks of counsel for the State excited the psssions and prejudices of the jurors against the defendants. It is charged as error that the prosecution was permitted to introduce as evidence an exhibit to tbe jury of the clothing, Instruments and hair of Dr. Cronin, tbe false teeth, tbe trunk and all the material evidence In tbe case. Tbe introduction of Dr. Cronin's knives, after the State had closed Its case, Is said to have been in error. The objeotion is made to a number of the instructions given to tbe jury by tbe court. The verdict is pronounced as contrary to law and not justi-fled by tbe evidence, and finally it is said that the defendants and each one of them have discovered evidence which entitles them to a new trial.
