Boise, Idaho, July 29. Charles H.
Moyer, president of the Western Fed
eration of Miners, and co-defendant
with William D. Haywood, who yes
terday was acquitted of the murder
of former Governor Steuneraberg, will
be admitted to ball in the sum of
twenty-five thousand dollars, and re
leased this afternoon.
An agreement to this effect was
reached this morning between tha
counsel for the state and the defense,
but the making of the formal appli
cation and entry was postponed from
10 o'clock, at which hour court le
convened today, until 2 p. m. The
delay was asked for to allow a fur
ther conference between counsel a
to what action shall be taken in tha
case of Pettlbone.
It Is understood that the attorneys
for the state will oppose ball for Pel
tibone in any sum whatever.
Boise continues quietly to discuss
the verdict, and apparently the people
are taking but little interest as to the
future course of the prosecution.
Haywood Quietly Rejoices.
William D. Haywood spent Sunday
in as quiet fashion as frequent visits
from his friends would permit, and
today a re-petition of the congratula
tions is lnprogress at his modest
home. His Invalid wife and his
daughters are participants in the Joy
over the acquittal of the husband and
father, and his aged mother, who has
returned from the hospital where a
breakdown following the giving of
the case to the Jury Saturday had
sent her, hovered around "her boy"
with all the genuine love of one of
those excellent creatures, a mother.
Haywood will probably remain
here for several days, attending to
affairs, and preparing to return with
his family to Denver. He has a mes
sage from the miners at Denver tell
ing h'm to wait for their special

FINANCIER SAYS THAT
HE NEVER SAW WOMAN
London,' July 29. Imitating the
methods of Cassie ChadwizU, and
using the name of J. Plerpont Mor
gan as a decoy, a woman known as
Mrs. Josephine Leslie, employed as
an English kennel maid, succeeded
in obtaining from a rich Irish wo
man. Miss Annie Blount, 142,500, and
from an Bnglish widow, Mrs. Maria
Stokes, 115,000. According to the
police, Mhe also secured large sums
from other people.
There Is much mystery attached to
the case, for the police say Mrs. Les
lie, who is now a prisoner, has rela
tives worth millions.
Mrs. Leslie displayed worthless
checks for amounts up to $1,000,000,
in order to show Miss Blount how
wealthy she was, and succeeded in
persuading the gullible Irish woman
that she had plerpont Morgan under
her thumb, and that Morgan was al
most on his knees to her, trying to
Induce her to invest money in his se
curities. The two women met while Miss
Blount was on a visit to some coun
try friends, where Mrs. Leslie was
employed to look after the dogs. The
visitor from Ireland was impressed
by the culture and gentility shown
by Mrs. Leslie, who appeared to be
much superior to the ordinary run
of English servants.
She Ciot the. Cash.
When Miss Blount terminated her
visit, she and the kennel maid were
fast friends, and later met frequently.
Then Mrs. tesiie throw up her dog
Job and devoted herself to the Cassie
Chadwick brand of high finance.
She started In by hinting of her
connection with a great American
money king, and then gradually
worked up to mentioning Morgan as
her financial adviser. One evening
at dinner with Miss Blount, a large
basket of flowers came to Mrs. Leslie
w)th a card on which was written,
"Can you not trust a friend? J. P.
M.' Mrs. Leslie said Morgan had sent
the flowers to her as a make up gift
because he had lately been disagree
able to her.
"I wish he wouldn't do these
things," said Mrs. Leslie.
Then she began to dip Into Miss
Blount's purse, Morgan, she Bald, had
let her into a good thing, promising
that fur every $5. Out) she invested she
wouid receive 12 per cent interest
and $125,000. Miss Blount passed
over $5,000 in a check drawn to Mrs.
Leslie's order, who explained that
this was necessary because she did
not want Morgan to know she was
giving away her tip to her friends.
On another occasion the Irish wo
man handed over $12,500 for Invest
ment with Morgan on the same term
as the first, and then $10,000 more.
Finally Miss Blount, having asked for
results, received a check which the
bank returned marked "account
Then the Leslie woman began op
erating on Mrs. Stokes. She told the
same tale about Morgan, and got first
$2,500 from her. Then she secured
$5,000 more, promising 500 per cent
return in seven months. Finally this
game flattened out.
When she was arraigned In police
court J. Plerpont Morgan was placed
upon the witness stand.
"Do you know Mrs. Leslie?" asked
Mr. Sims, the public prosecutor.
"Not so far as I can remember,"
answered Mr. Morgan. He also de
nied all knowledge of any financial
dealings with her.
