Claim Prosecution Did Not Clearly
State the Case.
Chicago , Dec. 21. Whether Dis
trict Attorney Wllkerson's opening
statement to the jury was clearly and
decisively stated as regards the al-
egatlon against the meat packers that
hey hud violated the criminal provi
sion of the Sherman anti-trust law
was to be decided by Judge Curpen-
er when the hearing was resumed at
10 o'clock today.
The court was expected to rule as
to whether counts 2 and 3 of the in
dictment should be stricken out , in
accordance with a motion of Attorney
Levy Mayer yesterday afternoon. Mr ,
Mayer's point was that the National
Packing company was not mentioned
in this portion of the Indictment and
therefore that they must fall because
the government contends that this
concern mainly fixed the price ol
meat. In the event the .court's ruling
favored the government , the packers
counsel were prepared to begin pre
sentlng their cases to the jury. How
long this would take was problematl
It was expected that four of tin
counsel would speak.
