Darrow Defense
Will Challenge
Homer Laughlin
LOS ANGELES. Cat.. May IT Homer
Laughlin. jr., millionaire clubman, who
with ten other prospective juror panned
the night locked up In custody of deputy
sheriffs. ms expected to be the object
of the first peremptory challenges of the
defense today at the resumption of the
I trial of Clarence tf. l:trrow, the Chicago
attorney. Indicted on a charge of bribery
j The state, with only five peremptory
j challenges, practically asserted after two
j hours of argument over the eligibility of
j Laughlin. that the only way the defense
j could proceed with the trial of Darrow
j without the wealthy clubman was to us
one of Its ten peremptories.
Laughlin would not alter his opinion
as to his ability to give a fair verdict if
he were retained as a Juror, lie stated
that he felt, despite his experience as an
employer with union labor that he could
render an unbiased verdict.
The prtrcipal objection of the defense
was that Laughlin had had some dlf-
i fkulttes with union labor,
j The challenging of Laughlin if not rx
, pec ted. however, until after the twelfth
I taJesman has been selected. It was be
I lieved that would be accomplished by
noon and that early In the afternoon the
ue of the peremptories would begin.
The jury will be obtained this week.
In the belief of attorneys for both sides
and tbe heating of testimony probably
begin Monday.
Laughlin saved the defense a peremp
tory challenge by modifying his reply to
a question as to his qualifications and
was excused.
He realised, he said today, that he hatf
stronger prejudices against union labor
leaders than ha had supposed yesterday.
