that the little troubles between defend

The episode was trifling, but signifi
cant. Then followed one of the sur
prises of the case. Alfred Eoff, the
last Juror to be called on Friday, was
examined by Borah and passed.
He la a wealthy man and a retired
banker. It was taken for granted that
Eoff would admit so much bias that the
defense would be able to disqualify him
easily. Richardson undertook his ex
amination. . He challenged him for Im
plied bias and the court denied the chal
lenge. "He chaienged him for direct
bias and the court denied that challenge
aa well. And It was Richardson's turn
to feel Borah's uppercut Richardson
asked Alfred Eoff a auestlon that was
vague in ita terms . about his f eellnara
concerning the Weatern Federation.
I object," aald Borah, atandlng up
and smiling at. Richardson. Richard-

aald Judge. Wood. , "Tou muat put your
qaeetlone more apecifJcally, Mr. Rich

, Richardson examined again aod re
newed his challenge for direct bias, and
again the court denied the challenge.
Haywood conferred with' Richardson
suggesting question after question. Al
fred Eoff answered, them aU quite frank
ly, and I. the end Richardson had to
admit defeat. Alfred Eoff, ex-banker,
qualified a Juror, ,V ' -x
