Attorney Explains Reason For Not

who Is having the last word for the
defense, took un the defense of Jack
Simpkln's Might after the arrest of
Darrow was very hoarse as a re
sult of speaking five hours and forty
minutes yesterday and spoke today
with the greatest effort.
He said that the reason Simpkins
was not here was because he was
afraid to be In Boise. He did not
know whether Simpkins is innocent
or r.oit, but took Issue with the state
ment of Proscutor Hawlcy that his
mgnt proved his guilt.
He said that If that be true, the
fact that Haywood. Mover and Pet-
tibone did not flee proved their In
nocence, but neither proposition Is
Wliy Adams Wits Not Used.
"Hawley blamed the Federation
for the re-election of Simpkins to
the executive board, but if he had
not been re-elected, Hawley would
have said that showed beyond a
doubt that the man was guilty," said
Darrow here went Into a lengthy
discussion as to why the defense had
not nut Steve Adams and Georare, A.
Pettlbone on the stand. He demand
ed to know why the prosecution had
not put C. K. Sterling, detective of
the Mine Owners' association on the
stand. Adams, the attorney ' ex
plained, is on trial for the murder of
a man In northern Idaho. Under the
circumstances, Darrow said he
would rather cut on his right arm
than allow Adams to go on the
stand, much as he desired the ac
quittal of Haywood.

"I am not afraid of what he would
say against Haywood, but I am
afraid to let Adams, my client, turn
himself wrong side out under the
cunning cross examination of Sen
ator Borah and then have his testi
mony used against him when, the
second trial for his life begins. No
lawyer who would permit his client
to do such a thing would be worthy
of the name."
As to Pettlbone Darrow said the
same thing was true.
No Cane- Against Moycr.
The reason he had nut Mover on
the stand while he too Is awaiting

evidence of any sort for Moyer to
explain. He expressed the belief
mat Moyer would never be tried.
Darrow demanded to know whv

blowing up of the Independence
depot, so that they might take the
law In their own hands and drive

Plunging vigorously Into the Crln

that "When some day the people get
the right angle of this case and look
back upon the Colorado labor strug
gles, they will have had one of the
most Important and pregnant chap
ters in tne history of the United
Ridicules Orchard's llcligion.
Darrow dwelt for the last hour of
the morning session upon the Brad

Magill, the young- bride of Fred H.
Magill, prdbably will be held by a
special grand Jury that Is to gather
here Saturday, on the charge of hav
ing written the letters generally as
cribed to the deceased Pet Oandy
Magill. It Is considered certain that
Fred Magill will be held on the
charge of murder. There has been
some doubt as to what the Jurors
will do with his youthful wife.
Ever since the discovery of Pet
Maglll's body and the simultaneous
appearance of the letters supposed to
have been written by her the the
orists have been working overtime aa
to the authorship of the communica
tions. The adherents to the suicide
theory claimed that Pet Magill her
self wrote them.
Did She Write Letters?
A person well acquainted with the
case and on the Inside explained the
theory in this way:
"When It came to the last ditch
Fred Magill was afraid. He did not
want to write the letters, and so he
hinted to Fay that she might try her
hand at them. I do not say she did
it, but it Is not beyond reason. She
Is a stenographer by training and a
mighty smart woman. What would
prevent her obeying Fred In this as
she has In other matters?"
According to this authority, the
state has obtained a specimen of the
young wife's handwriting and will
turn It over to the experts as soon as
the Pet Magill epistles are obtained.
The latter are believed to be In ths
possession of Marguerite Magill, Fred
Maglll's daughter. The state is wor
ried over the disappearance of the

Mexico's new governor, arrived at
Koswell yesterday, he found orders
from the war department, under
which he Is still acting, directing hlra
to come immediately to Washington.
The president also directed him to
come to Oyster Bay. For this rea
son the Inauguration which was to
have been held on August 1 will have
to be postponed until the return ol
the new governor.
While the date Is not definitely
known, Captain Curry will probably
return to Santa Fe from Washington
about August 10th.
The com mi tee at Santa Fe arrang

tinue to make preparations.
As a result of the delay the attend
dance at the inauguration ceremonies
will probably be much larger than
had It been held on August 1 as more
peo'pie will have time to make ar
rangements to be present.
A large number of representatives
business men and residents of this
city will attend.
In addition to the delegation from
this city, parties will go to Santa Fe
from all points south as far as Silver

Lumber company band from this city.
Particular care Is .being taken by
the local committee to -provide accom

to attend. There will be a number
of ladles from this city and from
towns to the south of Albuquerqux
along the Santa Fe line who will Join
tne Aiuuquerque delegation here.
Captain Curry today wired Acting
Governor J. W. Kaynolds at Santa

be given additional time in which to
arrange for the inauguration.

Tokio, Japan, July 25. A new
convention between Japan and Korea
was signed today at 1 p. m. after no

The provisions are believed to be

Korea shall secure the guidance of
the Japanese resident general.
Second That the enactment of
all laws and ordinances, also all im

approval of the resident general.

son, inducing him, among other
things, to refuse to sign a proclama

"to cairn the people- and restore or

omperor was his ordering the imper
ial guard to seize the palace last Fri

The Korean army's defying the

to their old emperor is deemed evi
