Since the day thc Insulting affidavit

that lt was a part of a. well planned '

as It wlll prove In the end, Is 'now said .
by one who held the confidence ot these
men to have been prearranged, con
cocted and. conceived in tlic cold blood
ed fashion with which traitors erect
their designs, ' ;;
A man who is a confidential coun
selor, and sympathizer with thc chief
conspirators gave thc plot 'away.
On Saturday. May' 25, the day the
Smith afll davit was presented In court
and before It was known what would
be thc result of the order for L. A.
Thurston to show cause why he should
not be punished for contempt, a dis
cussion was being held upon the sub
ject by two or three men. One of these
was acquainted with the villainous
program previously laid out by
Thurston and his sycophants. To him,
an .innocent citizen said, after reading
the affidavit in the Star, "Why I should
think. that those' lawyers would havo
known that such an aflldavltwould not
be tolerated In nny court." 'I
'.'That's the! point exactly,' said thc
exuberant member of the compact.
"That Is a nart of tho nlan. 1 It Is
working tike a charm. The scheme Is
to provoke the.Court to the point where
ho will make some strict orders against
leading members of the liar, trusting to
friends 'In high places to see that' no
harm actually befall them'.r'Then from

secure the adoption of n resolution ex

Tho wise man from thc compact
round table went on ,o say that only
recently, some two weekB before, flf.
teen new members were rushed Into
the liar Association to make sure of a
Thurstonlau majority. Thurston him
self, was one ot ttitsri fifteen, who
found It desirable, suddenly to become
members of the liar Association.
The original plan, contemplated
arousing tho lawyers to a point where
a majority of them would vote to ex
pel Judge Humphreys. Thurston had
not counted on such . a stampede of
malice its' would enable 'him to lead
thirty-seven of the lawyers to sign the
radical petition that was finally drawn
The plot proceeded. True to tin

when work and strife and planning

when It Is to the Interest ot their earth
