Horace Manning
Goes On Trial;
Panel Examined
Five Men Quickly Seated Without Chal
lenges for Cause at Start of the
Horan Murder Casa
Six prospective jurors were examined and five passed
without challenge for cause as the first degree msrder
trial of Horace M. Manning got under way more rapidly
than was anticipated at the courthouse this morning.
At noon, after two hours of tedious questioning, the
12 original jurymen were still in the box. In the morn
ing session, Harry Goeller, C. H. Pyles, Horace R. Dun
lap and Arthur W. Jolly went over the first hurdle
and will probably sit on the case unless later eliminated
by preemptory challenge.
Early in the afternoon session W. E. Wiesendanger
was eliminated by the state for cause. It developed that
WiesendajDger, . a clerk, was a partner in a grocery
firm where the defendant had an account.
Frank Howard, laborer, was called to the box to
replace Wiesendanger. He was passed for cause by
the state and defense. The state passed him despite his
remarks that he opposed capital punishment.
Remaining to be questioned were Arthur B. Eeenan,
William Lorenz, Claude H. Davis, Jesse Hanks, Carl
Schubert, H, H. Jenkins and John H. Martin.
Manning, on trialxfor the alleged murder of State
Legislator Ralph W. Horan, on February 12, slouched
silently beside his lawyers as the questioning proceeded.
In a row of seats' inside the bar and behind him .were
members tvt his family and ft. friend, -nd outside the
bar the spectators' section was nearly filled with
veniremen ana spectators.
A few hints as to what
may be expected in the
legal conflict ahead were
thrown out as defense and
state attorneys subjected
the prospective jurors to a
barrage of close question
ing. The defense emphasized
(its queries as to the venire-
mens knowledge ot and
agreement with the rules of
self defense. The state was
consistently careful to de
termine the jurors' attitude
on circumstantial evidence.
At the afternoon recess nine
prospective Jurors had been
passed for cause by both state
and defense attorneys. .
The manner of selecting a
. Jury was moving with greater
speed than trial officials bad
expected. '
Likewise, it sought
termine , whether any
jurors had scruples - against the
death penalty in cases where
the evidence would warrant.
