As the drawing of jurors commenced the clerk told him to stand up according to the usual form and stated to him the jurors would be drawn to pass upon his life and it was his privilege to offer objections to them. After that he appeared to be a Good Deal agitated Aad during the examination of jurors consulted frequently with his counsel and especially with or. Beal who sat next to him. At eleven of clock judge Boardman came into the room and took his seat on the Bench beside the presiding Justice. When Mulloff recon United the Able counsel who had successfully defended him on a previous trial for murder a familiar smile lit up Bis countenance. The following jurors were accepted during the morning session of court Hiram Mosher City of Bing Huolun. Emory Trusdell town of Binghamton. John c. Rook City of Binghamton. George Conor. Lisle. Henry King Barker. Or. Becker examined the Jar hrs very clo Lyas to Wlms newspapers they read and whether they read Uny of the editorial comments on the evidence. On two occasions he was interrupted by the judge Hangi Boom who told him that 111 i this age and ill this Community lie would scarcely liable to find a Man of intelligence who did not read the newspapers and was not informed about common occasions. Or. Becker did however find few who did not read a county paper i less it was borrowed and he actually found two who did not read one at All. Those men were nil excused from serving on the jury either by the judge or by or. Becker. From that it would appear that ignorance is not to be Coati Daivd the Best qualification for jurors to serve on East s where intelligent men should be selected. I this afternoon the following were accepted As jurors making Fen in ail i sub a Hayes Triangle. I Eben lhawkins Windsor. John b. Perry Sanford. Edgar 0. Smith Windsor. Franklin Plunkett Windsor. Called for help and Mirick left to meet them i Alto left be Man and vent to the Bead of the stairs one Man came no and Mirick clinched him the other stopped on the stairs Send shot at me three times the last time some splinters flew in my face and i stepped Bock and went to go around the railing and go where Mirick was when 1 got in sight of Mirick i saw one Man hold him and the other shoot him 1 stood still behind the railing and the Bur Tara went oat by the Way of the Back stairs when they bad gone 1 went out past Mirick by the front Way and gave the alarm i went Over to the american hotel where i saw or.

Then Kalloff s shoes were identified of those found in the store. Here Hull off arose and in a plea of some length objected to the evidence introduced by the District attorney As being irrelevant. He coup Luied that the District attorney had connected several arsons in the indictment for the murder and each defendant had to disentangle himself from a general and sweeping charge. Evidence be said is relevant or irrelevant Only 03 it is brought non the prisoner. Every circumstance offered in Eri Deuce must be offered in connection with a particular circumstance connected with the acis of the prisoner on trial. Or. Seymour said the prisoner would be connected with the bit the shoes and every thing left behind in the store when the burglars fled. Mulloff wished to further discuss i objections to the evidence but the judge decided not to hear them discussed guv a a j further Tymn the exigencies for the Dis etis Siou arose. If the prosecution gave a Prima facies evidence that you were there he said addressing Mulloff then they May connect you with other circumstances tile it Osses Sion of those instruments your acquaintances. The men found in tho River and your leaving new York with them the knowledge on your part of the burglary and murder. If you were not connected by the evidence with the transactions at the store then Lue evidence on the shoe May be excluded. Examination resumed. The door could be unbolted from the i had a tussle with and also that Yon Boll off answered to tho Imp twin 1 had of the third person i did not say i could not Gire a description of the third Man i have never Bain i could not recognize his features.

When the District attorney had finished his opening court adjourned for the Day. Rolloff conducted the examination of witnesses for the defense and endeavoured to break Down the Tusti Mooy of Young. Burrows the striving Cornin a turd a companion of the murdered Mirick. In n. this he was very unsuccessful for Burrows. _ i As will be seen from his testimony again proved equal to the task of self defence. Testimony of Gilbert s. By blows. Gilbert 8.

After Mirick snapped his pistol the burglar struck me Over the head 1 Clincle him and threw him Down he fell about eight feet from the bed Mirick kept the pistol under his Pillow. Mulloff asked Why the pistol was kept in the store and when objection was raised to the question by the District attorney he said be wanted to show the wicked character of the boys. Or. A cols said they wanted to show that these Young men used unlawful violence toward the drowned burglars denying that they had a right to use Only violence enough to arrest and secure him. Mulloff said he wanted to show that they intended to make a reckless and Wanton use of the pistol. The judge ruled that As none of the Bur stairs we were engaged from five to ten minutes with Davenport they went Down stairs and come right Back Merrick and the first burglar that came no scuffled from five to ten minutes before the second burglar came up it was Twenty minutes after the Secour burglar came up before they went out when the burglar shot at me As he was half Way.
