The trial of Lyons, Larkins, and ones ia now in progress and crowds flocks to the court room every day. Monday and a large part of Tuesday afternoon were spent in securing a ury which consists of the following men: Ambrose V. Robison, of Ann Arbor ; Robert Campbell, of Ann Arbor; ''rank Vandawarker, of Ann Arbor; ed. S. Chapin, of Northfield; Ed. E.. iaker, of Sharon; Wm. Henzie, of Manchester; Charles Ellis, of Ypsilani City; Henry Brooks, of Ypsilanti City; Matthew Hankard, of Lyndon; ïeorge Ingraham, of Manchester; James Ivory, of Dexter; Charles Harar, of Northfield. Service upon this jury is no snap as ,he juriors are required to eat and leep in the court house and be always under the eye of a deputy sheriff. After securing the jury court adourned until half past two to await he coming of Col. Atkinson, of Deroit, who assists Jones and Randall in the defense. At 2:30 A. J. Sawyer of the prosecu.ion openeï the case. He told of the crime and outlined the evidence against the men giving substantially what was published in last week's Register. Since then the time has been taken up mainly with the examination of witnesses and with wranglings betvveen Sawyer and Atkinson as to what testimony is admissable. Pictures of the Richards place, taken in September were not allowed as evidence the objection being that they were taken too long after the crime was committed and the jury will visit the place instead. So far nothing new has developed and the trial promises to a long and tedious one.
