Transcript FIELDEN, NEEBE AND SCHWAB. 135 would .nfluence me in determining and getting at a verdict." vw Vk chRl'«D8ed by the defendants on the ground of being prejudiced, «ne court then got him to say that he believed he could give a fair verdict on ubatever evidence he should hear, and thereupon the challeng. ce was over- . F. Chandler, in the stationary business with Skeen, Stuart & Co., said: i Panted out to the deputy sheriff by my employer to be summoned as ? Jl1 w1*' i I 8tated that he had read and talked aboutthe Haymarket troume and had formed and frequently expressed an opinion as to the guilt oi Pendants, and that he believed the statements he had read and heard. He was asked : Q. Is that a decided opinion as to the guilt of the defendants? A. It is a decided opinion ; yes, sir. Your mind is pretty well made up now as to their guilt or innocence? A. Yes, sir.

Then on being still further pressed by the court, he finally said: " Well, I feel that I hope that the guilty one will be discovered or punished—not necessarily these men." Q. Are you conscious of any other wish or desire about the matter than that the actual truth may be discovered? A. I don't think I am. > Thereupon the challenge was overruled. George N. Porter, grocer, testified that he had formed and expressed an opinion as to the guilt of the defendants, and that this opinion he thought, would bias his judgement; he would try to go by the evidence, but what he had read would have a great deal to do with his verdict; his mind, he said, was certainly biased now, and that it would take a great deal of evidence to change it. He was challenged for cause by the defendants; was examined by the court and said :
