[...]The Jury Panel for the Assizes.

The selectors of juries concluded their labours this afternoon, and, contrary to the general expectation, did not receive any order from the Attorney-General empowering them to increase the ordinary panel. It had been anticipated that this would have been done, seeing that the trial of the alleged murderers of the Donnelly family is as good as set for the Middlesex Assizes. However, the selectors deemed it prudent to increase the ordinary panel of petit jurors from 48 to 60. Only four of these are from Biddulph and Lucan.
