By ths AHot'toted Pre.
Wakcugan, III., May 5. The jury
to try Governor Len Small, charged
with" conspiracy to cmberzle state
funds, was torn anart today to per
emptory challenge two men, one of
whom had been finally accepted and
sworn and had been sitting in the
jury box for more than a week." '
The dwindling hope of obtaining
a full jury by the end of the second
week of the trial was completely
shattered when a dispute arose over
the question of permitting the de
fense to make, in the examination of
prospective jurors, reference to its
contention that tbe state treasury act
of 1907 is unconstitutional.
It was agreed that Judge Edwards
will not rule on the prosecution ob

ment.'f " -'
The indictment specifically charges
the defendants with conspiring to
dofraud William L. Gove, S. J. Car
roll, Mrs. O. F. Farman; A. B. Mil
ler and divers other persons, firms
and corporations by fraudulently in
ducing them to purchase shares of
stock and other securities at prices
far in excess of their values.
It states that Willard V. Mathews,
Lucien B. Fuller, Alexander L.
Mathews, Charles H. Rogers, Harris
L. Fuller and Samuel G. Moore were
in full control of the Guaranty Se
curities company of Omaha and Lin
coln and the Guaranty" Securities
company with headquarters in Des
' Alleged Conspiracy Detailed.
Part of the conspiracy alleged
was, the indictment says, to organ
ize the Guaranty Securities company
located in Denver and to organize
three banks,; one to be located at
College View, Neb., to'be known as
the Farmers State bank; one to be
located at Lincoln to be called the
Midland Savings bank, and one in
Omaha, the Pioneer Slate bank.
A manipulation of moneys and se
curities is alleged.
The Colonial Timber & Coal cor
poration exploitation occupies much
ot the space in the indictment. The
state of Virginia in 1838 declared
forfeited all title to the 140.000 acres
claimed by this corporation in ita
prospectus, it is alleged. A con
spiracy is charged in the formation
of a $10,000,000 company and the
floating of $2,000,000 bonds based on
this property upon which, it is al
leged, 1 3,000 people have lived for
Called Record Indictment. .
The indictment, in number of men
named and in their prominence, is
said to be the largest ever returned
by a federal grand jury here.
Dave Bernstein and Max Fried,
owners of the Beehive grocery, 822
North Sixteenth street, were indict
ed on charges of conspiracy to vio
late the prohibition act. Their bonds
are $2,500 each. .
' Alfio Rabino was indicted on a
charge of violating the prohibition
act. His bond is $2,000. .
About 15 o;her separate indict
ments were returned which will not
be made public until the indicted
persons have been arrested. .
