The next case called was that of U. S. vs. BROWN (colored) charged with the murder of an old man MCCORMICK, near Davis last spring. In selecting a jury, the regular panel of jurors was exhausted and 25 or 30 additional persons examined before the trial jury was secured. No questions as to race prejudice were asked, but the question of conviction on circumstantial evidence, on which the defendant was indicted, caused more than usual difficulty in securing the jury.
