Transcript 142 ALTGELD'S REASONS FOR PARDONING A. I certainly think it would affect it to some extent; I don't see how it cbuld be otherwise. He further stated that there had been a strike in the freight department of the Northwestern road, which affected the department he was in. After some further examination he stated that he thought he could try the case fairly on the evidence, and was then held to be competent. G. W. Adams, also one of the twelve: "Am a traveling salesman; have been an employer of painters.

Challenged on the ground of prejudice. On further examination, stated he believed he could try the case fairly upon the evidence, and the challenge for cause was overruled.
