Their Dissatisfaction Overshado\ \
All Else in the Trial.
Los Angeles , Oct. 28. When t
McNamara murder trial opened ted
it was evident that a little cloud
dissatisfaction among counsel for t
defense , first visible only a few da
ago , had reached sufficient propi
tions to overshadow most other
terest among spectators. Rultn
from Judge Walter Bordwell on Tali
man A. C Winter , challenged I
cause by the defense , and on Tal
man Walter N. Frampton , also urn !
challenge by the defense , were eag
ly awaited by counsel for the defei
ant , but neither ruling , from the i
ture of the cases , could throw furtl
light on the insistent contention
the defense that the court should ri
immediately after such challeiif
are made.
Ordinarily there would have be
no Saturday session of court , but t
ing to the short session of Thursd
which lasted only thirty-five mlnu
because the supply of venlremen i
out. Judge Bordwell decided to
three hours today. This In more tli
half a usual day session , and the we
was pushed rapidly.
The defense in the McNuaiara in
dor case collided head-on wllb a co
ruling. The trial proceeded. 'I
point at Issue was made ground
exception and may be up again ,
torney Clarence S. Darrow , chief
counsel for the defense , brought
the clash for the avowed purpose
obtaining a ruling on the time wh
the court will take in challenges
rected against a talesman. For
purpose of record , ho refused to r
ceed until ordered to do so by
court. It was the third day that A.
Winter , a challenged talesman , sat
the box , and the court had said
would rule on Winter's case if the
fenso desired. The point was pass
and late in the day Walter N. Frai
ton , a farmer , was challenged beca
ho said ho believed both James
MoXaniar.i and his brother , John
it were guilty of murder In connect
with the TlmcB dlflafltcr. The court
deferred ruling on Frampton , who , on
examination by the stale , made sev
eral apparently contradictory state
ments and Darrow stopped the trial In
Its tracks. It Is the contention of the
counsel for the defense that they do
not know how to save up their per
emptory challenges nor when to take
chances on accepting talesman as to
cause unless they know the exact
status of every man In the box.
Important Miners' Congress.
