The trial of Hon. Phil. B. Thompson,
who shot Walter H. Davis under such
distressing and sensational circumstances
on the morning of April 27th, at Harrods-

the most remarkable in the annals of cel
ebrated causes. Hon. J. C. S. Blackburn,
M. C, has been retained as leading coun
sel for the defense, aud Senator Daniel
Voorhees, of Indiana, will assist on that
side,' Thompson being an old friend of
his. The interest in the trial is so great
that men are anxious to serve as jurors
in order that they may hear the whole
case, and from the preliminary steps so
far taken it is evident 'that the attorneya
