LOS ANGELES, Nov. 1. With It
months to a day elapsed since St per
sons lost tbelr Uvea In an explosion
and a fire which wrecked the Los An
geles Times, hardly the beginning of
a Jury had been obtained tonight In the
trial of James B. McNamara. Counsel
for the state estimated that two months
hence a Jury may have been obtained.
Today's results In that direction were
exactly nothing at all. so far as secur
ing additional talesmen accepted for
cause wa3 concerned. At the beginning
of the session. Ulstrict Attorney Fred
ericks withdrew opposition to a chal
lenge by the defense against one tales
men; the examination of another, who.
It Is nearly certain, will not reach the
Jury, occupied most of the day. and
two others were released Just before
clone of court, one by consent of op
posing counsel and one because of op
position to the death penalty. The nine
talesmen who had been acceDted as to
i cause when court opened had not in-
! creased their number at the close of
the session. Of these, perhaps, two or
three will be on tha Jury aa It la
Tea More Veniremen Secured.
Ten veniremen were secured for ex
amination out of a new venire the
third thus far of 40 men, summoned
yesterday. One of these, Jesse R.
Townsend. waa the man excused be
cause of hla opposition to capital
Ben F. Groves, a real estate dealer,
told of having heard tha Times ex
plosion and seen from the windows of
his residence the burning of the build
ing. He said that he knew General
Harrison Gray Otis, proprietor of tha
Times: Harry Chandler. General Otis'
son-in-law, and several oher men In
terested tn tho case. While he told how
the sound of the explosion, muffled and
blanketed by fog. came to his ears In
the middle of the night. Attorney Le
rompte Psvls, for the defense, con
ferred with District Attorney Fred
ericks, and soon afterward Attorney
Clarence 8. Darrow. the defense'a chief
of counsel suggested to the court that
the man be excused.
Ts that a challenge?" demanded As
sistant District Attorney Horton.
"It la not." said Darrow. "I'm not
going to challenge this man."
After a brief colloquy tha state
agreed to release Groves.

In the case of Lor en so Romans, a
real estate dealer who admitted having
written many anonymous letters to
William MulBolland. head of the
Mayor's commission which declared the
Times explosion to have been caused
by dynamite, because of disapproval
of Mulholland's services as a city offi
cial, a challenge waa levelled by tha
state under statutory provision pro
viding against Incapacity for any sort
of mental or bodily Infirmity. It waa
resisted by the defense, which an
nounced that It would bring wltnesse
Into court tomorrow and oppose It.
Romans laughed much of the time
of his examination and spectators
laughed with him until bailiffs had to
rap for order. He aald ha believed a

"How old are you 7" the court asked
B. C. Robertson, an elderly man.
"No." aald Robertson.
"I asked how old you were." shouted
. "I can't hear." said Robertson.
"You're excused," said the Judge. In
an ordinary tone, and Robertaon left
promptly, having caught the Judge's
meaning with aeemlng ease.

Job Harrlman. one of the attorneys

counsel for the defense objected.
Tbe court questioned Romans fur
ther about the various letters and car
toons ba had sent to city offlciala. Ro
mans explained that his opposition to
Mulholland was because Mulholland
had placed a reservoir near some of
his property and to which an improve

And so Marjorie married, but did they live happily

the beginning of "Marriage," H. G. Wells'
story in The American Magazine. For Marjorie was
frightfully extravagant; Trafford was not rich, and
soon there was the butcher, the baker, the candle
