JURY SECURED FOR
LiOTED MURDER CASE
Trial of Harold Howell Begun
KILLING SENSATIONAL ONE
Circumstantial Evidence Connects
Defendant With Death or Girl
on lonely Trail.
MARSHFIELD, Or., Oct. 27.-(Spe-cial.)
The Jury in the Harold Howell
case in the circuit court was com
pleted late in the afternoon at Co
quille, where it was called this morn
ing at 9 o'clock. Some surprise was
occasioned that a jury was obtained
so quickly, for the murder young
Howell is accused of has been the
sensation of the country for months
and the public has read and reread
accounts of new evidence and theo
ries. The murder occurred while Lillian
Leuthold, the victim, was returning
home one Sunday afternoon In day
light, on a trail frequented by many
people in the eastern part of Bandon,
The girl was waylaid by somebody
and slain, being shot twice, once in
the head, and it was the bullet re
moved from her head and held as evi
dence' that imputed the killing to
young Howell, since it fitted a 25-cal-iber
rifle he was using on the dux o(
Many circumstantial pieces pf testi
mony are claimed by the state, such
as the sequestering or burning of the
lad's clothing following the tragic af
fair, the probability that he returned
over the trail where the girl was
killed, his general character and the
fact that he was or could have been
at the scone when the shooting-took
place. " There is a slight discrepancy
In the testimony produced at the pre.
liminary hearing as to the time
Howell was said to have gone home
and the time given as the departure
of the girl from the Jennings home.
Howell's boy friend said he went
home earlier than the time Miss
Leuthold is declared to have left the
Jennings home and this may be a
vital factor in favor f Howell, for
nobody saw him between the friend's
home and his own, which is several
hundred yards distant.

END TO TANGLE SOUGHT
HIGH COURT'S OPINION" IV ANT
ED OX OLCOTT'S STATUS.
Political Friends of Governor Hope
Outsider Will Start Suit to
SALEM, Or., Oct. 27. (Special.
Regardless of any opinion that may
be given by Attorney-General Brown
with reference to the legal status
of Governor Olcott, political friends
of the latter official declared today,
that In- Justice to the present execu
tive and other persons who may con
template entering the contest for the
state's highest office, the matter
should be taken to the supreme .court
for final determination.
Because of the recent advice ol
counsel that It would be Impossible
for Governor Olcott, also serving in
the capacity of secretary of state, to
bring mandamus proceedings against
himself to have- his name placed on
the ballott for governor, his friends
say it is now up to some person
other than the executive to start pro
ceedings which will tend to clarify
the muddle. In a recent opii.ion, or
group of opinions, the supreme court
held that Mr. Olcott was governor
in fact but all were not agreed as
to whether he holds the office for
the unexpired term of the late Gov
ernor Wlthycombe, or retires follow
ing the 1920 elections.
It is openly declared here that
there is but one source left in which
to determine the status of Governor
Olcott. This lies in the hope that
some person will come along and file
his petition, for governor. The sec
retary of state then could recuse to
accept the petition, with the result
that the disappointed candidate would
resort to mandamus proceedings in
the supreme court to have his name
placed on th" ballot.
- Although this action would be of
a friendly nature. It would have the
desired effect and place the matter
squarely before the supreme court
