Transcript FIELDEN, NEEBE AND SCHWAB. 145 allowed8 thUethatthi8Ca8eWaS before the SuPreme Court> and that court maiorit , verdlct to starid; and it is also true that in the opinion of the case fro7 th' ^^ in the Cronin ca8e> an effort is made to distinguish that this cfl h < °ne; bUt lt i8 evideDt that tn« court did not have the record of the min . fc when lt tried to make the distinction, and the opinion of bein 1^ ° court in the Cronin case expressly refers to this case as t The * eXa° ^^ that ODe' e° far as relates to tne competency of the jurors, the an8Wer8of the Jurors were almost identical and the examinations were in t}8aDr " The Very things which the Supreme Court held to be fatal errors e ^«>nin case, constituted the entire fabric of this case, so far as relates I H HCi°mPetenCy °f the JUry* In faCt' the trial Jlldge in the Cronin case wa8 g i eel by the rule laid down in this case, yet the Supreme Court reversed the ronin case because two of the jurors were held to be incompetent, each hav- g testified that he had read and talked about the case, and had formed and expressed an opinion as to the guilt of the defendants; that he was preju- iced; that he believed what he had read, and that his prejudice might in- nuence his verdict; that his prejudice amounted to a conviction on the subject n the guilt or innocence of the defendants; but each finally said that he could ana would try the case fairly on the evidence alone, etc. A careful comparison of the examination of these two jurors with that of many of the jurors in this case shows that a number of the jurors expressed t emselves, if anything, more strongly against the defendants than these two aid; and what is still more, one of those summoned, Mr. M. D. Flavin, in this case, testified not only that he had read and talked about the case, and had formed and expressed an opinion as to the guilt or innocence of the defendants, that he was bitterly prejudiced, but further, that he was related to one of the men who were killed, and that for that reason he felt more strongly against the defendants than he otherwise might, yet he waB held to be competent on his mere statement that he believed he could try the case fairly on the evidence. No matter what the defendants were charged with, they were entitled to a fair trial, and no greater danger could possibly threaten our institutions than to have the courts of justice run wild or give way to popular clamor; and when the trial judge in this case ruled that a relative of one of the men who was killed was a competent juror, and this after the man had candidly stated that he was deeply prejudiced, and that his relationship caused him to feel more strongly than he otherwise might; and when, in scores of instances, he ruled that men who candidly declared that they believed the defendants to be guilty, that this was a deep conviction and would influence their verdict, and that it would require strong evidence to convince them that the defendants were innocent; when in all these instances the trial judge ruled that these men were competent jurors, simply because they had, under his adroit manipulation, been led to say that they believed they could try the case fairly on the evidence, then the proceedings lost all semblance of a fair trial.
