Important information of other indict

not appear in tho transcript, bo sum
moned to appear as witnesses. Forty
names wero sot forth in tho indictments
but tho testimony of half has not been

plained, was because there was no sten

Repudiation of Confession
Kirwan Testifies Today,

BOISE, Idaho, Juno 17. When tho
Stouuonbcrg trial is resumed tomorrow
Harry Orchard will bo tho first witness
called by tho state. Ho will bo first in

tho stand, thero aro sovoral points rola

Whon Orchard was brought back
from Caldwell this afternoon his guards
took him to the ofllco of James II. Haw
loy, counsel for tho state, for a confer
ence ns to his testimony, nnl nt the
conclusion of tho meoting ho was driven
back to tho penitentiary.
Won't Put Adaui3 On
Counsel for tho stato had extended
conforenco this afternoon ns to the
concluding moves in their case and
chiefly rolntivo to tho course to bo pur
sued by them toward Steve Adams.
Tho decision as to Adams was not
final, but it was tentatively agreed not
to use him as a witness for tho state,
but to leavo him for tho defenso if it
sees fit to make him a witness.
Adams stands by tho repudiation of
his confession, which it is claimed ho
mado to McParland. Thcro his connec
tion with tho case, other than in the
use of his name, rests for tho present.
Orchard will bo succeeded on the
stand by James Kirwan, acting sec
retary of tho Western Federation. Ob
jection was made to tho manner in
which Kirwnn was served with his sub

waive tho matter and stiulatcd that

Other New Witnesses
Several additional witnesses whoso
whoso testimony is said to bo of impor

Ncvillo, who was a member of tho party
that accompanied Orchard on his flight
into Wyoming after tho Independence

Orchard claims that on the day of
tho explosion ho started out with
Charles Novillo and John Novilie, since
deceased, and that whon the party wont
into camp for tho night ho stolo away,
mounted n horse, rodo back to join
Stove Adams, set off tho mine, and then
hurriedly rodo back to camp.
The youth's testimony ns to the

BADGER FIGHT III
GLOBE LAST NIGHT
Brief but Cruel Contest Pulled
Off and Doctors Participate
in Sport (?)
That badger fighting should bo per
mitted in such an enlightened commun
ity as Globe is moro than doplorable
it is disgraceful; and tho authorities
should tako stops to prohibit it. For
this purposo Drs. J. L. Parker of Pinto
Crook and E. It. McPheetors of Globo
will todny commence organizing a So
ciety for tho Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals, which will havo power to dis
courago this form of cruelty without
calling on tho polico officials.
Their decision was arrived at last
night after a vicious battle between a
bull terrier owned by W. G. Beel and
a badger which was caught in tho Pinal
mountains by Leslie Gcorgo and C. E.
Rulo (without a headacho), tho fight
occurring in tho hen corral of tho Do
minion hotel. Wo desiro to oxonorato
Manager Hanson from all blame, as ho
did not know of tho brutnl battlo until
it was too lato to provent it.
Thcro was an nttendanco of about
a hundred and wo aro happy to stato
that tho majority of tho spectators were
not residents of Globe, but traveling
men, who aro not supposed to know any
better. At least $1,000 was wagered on
tho contest nnd tho excitement was in
tense. Troiii n sporting standpoint it
was a hugo success, but from a humani
tarian point of viow it was utterly de
grading. Tho Honor, if it may bo called
such, of rcfereeing tho fight was given
Dr. McPheetors, nnd to his credit it
must bg said that ho, not knowing tho
nature of tho sport and unwilling to
decide an issuo where so much money
was involved, ho accepted undor pro
test. Dr. Parker, who Is quito originally
from Ohio, insisted on the honor of
pulling the badger. It would bo some
thing to write homo about; somothing
that was typically western. However,
ho will novor pull another badger and
is fully determined to bring tho matter
beforo tho next legislature. Prize
fights and bull fights aro forbidden in
Arizonn and ho believes that badger
fights are equally brutal and far more
expensive. Dr. McPheoters says that
vivisection is child's play compared
with a badger fight.
Tho fight itself was extremely brief,
tho badger disappointing its backers by
its apathetic manner. The sympathy
of n number of ladies who, attracted by
the noise, saw tho battlo from tho hotel
windows, was wholly with the badger,
who was left motionless on the ground
soon after tho tug that pulled it from
under tho tub.
As is usually tho case in nu nffair of
this kind, thcro was not an officer in
sight until- after the crowd had ad
journed to tho Dominion thirst annex

WASHINGTON, Juno 17. An ordor
has been issued by tho interstate com
