Harry Orchard Continues His
Testimony at Haywood Trial.
Tried for Weeks to Kill Got
ernor Peabody.
Tells How the Explosion at In
dependence Was Managed.
He Implicates Miners' Officers
in All His Crimes.
Boise, June 6. There was a tre
mendous crush at the Wednesday af
ternoon session of court, in the trial
of W. D. Haywood, the news of Or
chard's appearance on the stand hav
ing spread rapidly throughout the
city. So great was the crowd which
sought admission at the court room
doors that the attorneys and others
connected with the trial forced their
way through with the greatest diffi
culty. More than one-half the crowd
was made up of women.
Orchard resumed the stand as soon
as court reconvened and picked up the
threads' of his narrative where he had
left off in the morning. Notwith
standing the injunction. Orchard said
that some of the miners returning to
Telluride were arrested. Orchard
then returned to Denver, where he
met Haywood and Pettlbone at feder
ation headquarters.
"They wanted to know if I could not
work up some scheme to assassinate
Governor Peabody of Colorado," said
the witness. "They said they could
not got Justice In the courts and the
only way to get our rights was to take
the law Into our own hands. They
wanted me first to see if I could not
Ret acquainted with Governor Pea
body. his ways, etc., and see what
chance there was to assassinate him.
1 proceeded to watch him for some
time at the capitol and at his home
on Grand avenue, three, blocks from
the capitol.
"I reported to Haywood and Petti
bone that there was a stone well near
Pcabody's house from behind which
he could be easily shot. Haywood
said he thought Steve Adams was the
best man he knew of for the work. I
went to Cripple Creek and saw Adams
about it. He said he was ready for it
was ready for any old thing, i gave
Adams some money and came away.
He said he would come to Denver and
telephone me in a few days. Adams
followed me to Denver in three days. I
saw Adams in the room over Petti
bone's store and at the headquarters.
Pettibone sold house specialties. I told
Haywood and Pettibone that Steve
was coming and they said all right.
When Steve came they gave him some
money and Pettibone bought Adams a
new suit of clothes and fixed him up.
"They also gave Adams and me two
pawed oft shot guns and shells loaded
with buckshot. The guns were sawed
off so we could carry them under out
coats. Pettibone gave us the guns.
He got them from federation head
quarters. "We watched for - Peabody every
night for a week; but did not see him
for a week. We kept after him for
three weeks. One night we saw a hack
come along and turn into his resi
dence. We stole up behind it with our
guns expecting to see the governor get
cut. Only two women alighted, how
ever. After this we were afraid to go
around there, for the - women had
watched us closely that night. We de
cided then we would try to use a bomb
digging a hole in the sidewalk and
burying it."
"Did you talk to Haywood about
"Yes. Pettibone said all right, but
Haywood said he did not want this
done because the executive board was
in session, and he did not want any
thing to occur at that time. He told
us to lay off for awhile. We remained
In the city, but did not go to head
quarters much."
To Assassinate Gregory.
"What next did you do?"
"We were to assassinate Lyte Gregory
a deputy sheriff who had been in the
mines. He had also been in Goldfleld
and was aginst us."
"Who suggested this?"
"Pettibone. He told Adams and my
self he wanted the thing done. We
talked the matter over in Pettibone's
store. Pettibone said it would be a
good thing to make an example of
CSregory. Jim Murphy of Butte spoke
up and said he thought it would be a
good thing, too. Pettibone, Adams and
myself went down town to a saloon
w here we found Gregory In a -rear room
"Meldrlm. who was a mine owner,
was with Gregory. We watched them
and followed them across the street.
Pettibone then made some excuse and
left us. Gregory left the place about
midnight. He saw us I think and made
a reach as 1 thought for a gun. I then
ehot him three times with a sawed oft
"Did you kill him?"
"Yes. sir, I believe I did."
Meldrim was with Gregory at that
time. Orchard then told of running
away and hiding his gun. Next day
he saw Haywood, Pettibone and Jack
"They all expressed themselves as
well pleased with the Job. They said
It was all right with them and he
wouldn't get after them very hard for
he thought that whoever bumped
Gregory oil had done a good Job."
, "Where was Moyer at this time?"
"He was in Jail at Telluride."
Orchard said there was no specific
arrangement as to the amount of mon
ey to be paid for the taking oft of
Gregory.' He received $100 the next day
and had been getting money from
headquarters right along. Orchard said
Haywood, Pettibone. Simpkins and
Sherman Parker next wanted "Some
thing pulled off" in Cripple Creek.
Shows No Feellns.
Orchard told his story in a low.
humdrum tone, displaying not ti
slightest feeling whatsoever.
"Haywood and the others said they
were having trouble In the convention
and there threateend to be a split up,"
continued Orchard.
"They thought that if something was
pulled off in Cripple Creek the excite
ment would make everything all right
in the convention and the delegates
would go home. We planned then to
blow up the Independence depot in
Colorado. I asked Steve Adams if he
wanted to help and he said he did. I
gave him the money to get the powder
with and we took the powder to a cabin
near the depot at Independence prepar
atory to using it that night. The next
day Sherman Parker- told me some of
the men from the convention were com
ing up to Independence to make an
investigation of conditions there and be
told us to not pull the thing off until
they went away. They went away
Sunday morning and the same night
we placed the powder under the sta
tion platform, attached a wire to it and
then waited for a train to come in.
The trains brought nonunion men to
Independence. We used 100 pounds of
me powder. ,
Both-Pulled the String.
"Steve Adams and I both pulled the
string which upset several bottles of
sulphuric acid. This acid ran over a
box of giant caps and these set the
powder off. The depot was wrecked
and from 12 to 14 men were killed.
We went to Colorado Springs and
camped there one nie-ht. We then
camped near Palmer Lake for one
night. Then we went to Denver, com
ing into the city on an electric car.
In Denver we met Haywood and Petti
bone in Jack Simpkins' room. Kirk
wan, now the acting secretary of the
Western Federation of Miners, was
also there. Our conversation Had to
do with the blowing up of the depot.
Pettibone spoke first and said he was
well pleased with the Job. Haywood
also said it was a good thing; that
things had gone all right in the con
vention. He said a lot of fellows, at
CripDle Creek had been arrested and
we must lay low till they were out. I
remained in Denver three or four
days. Johnny Neville and his son
Charlie were with us. too. Thei' had
been with Adams and myself at Inde
pendence, but they were not in our
confidence as to the plot. Before I
left Denver. I to!d Haywood I wanted
$300 to take a trip to Wyoming. He
said he . would send me the money
through Pettibone. The next day Petti
bone fave me the $300. Adams told
me he had got $200. After buying a
few things I left for Cheyenne. Charlie
Neville going with me. I saw in the
papers there that we were suspected
of blowing up the Independence depot,
so I thought we had better get along.
I asked Pat Moran in Cheyenne to
take a letter to Pettibone, asking him
for $500 mere. Moran took the letter
to Pettibone and brought back the
money. Denver is only 100 miles from
Cheyenne. Neville and I decided to
go on to the Dakotas. It was about
two weeks before we reached Ther
mopolis. Neville wanted to stop
there and take the hot baths. I rode
on and sent the horses, back for
Neville. At Cody, Wyo., I got a letter
from Pettibone. I destroyed the let
ter ri.Tht away. It said that I was
wanted for the Independence affair.
"Instead of going to the tall timber
I went straight back to Denver and
saw Pettibone and Haywood. They
told me at first I'd better set out of
the country. They also told me they
had another man working on the Pea
bodv affair. In the latter part of July.
1904. Pettibone get me a railroad
ticket and gave me $100 more and I
went to San Francisco, where I used
the name of Hogan or Demossey, I
have forgotten which. Pettibone had
told me to send for any money
After Bradley, Too.
Orchard said he had been told to
look up Fred Bradley in San Fran
cisco, but could not find him. Bradley
had been in the Coeur D'Alenes. Or
chard said he received money from
"Pat Bone" several time by Postal
Telegraph company.
The defense noted exceptions from
time to time to Orchard's testimony.
Judge Wood consistently overruled all
objections upon a statement by the
prosecution . that the witness' story
would be connected with Haywood,
Moyer and Pettibone.
"I finally located Bradley in San
Francisco." said Orchard. "He had
been manager of Sullivan and Butler
Hill mine in Idaho and we were after
him. I went to his house one morn
ing and Ju3t after the milk was deliv-.
ered I opened one of the- Jars and put
a lot of strychnine into it.-. .-Nothing
came of the poison as far as I could
learn, so I bought 10 pounds of pow
der gelatine powder it was. When
purchasing the explosive I had to give J
a name. I nave rorjrotien wnat me
name was. I said I lived outside the
city and wanted to blow - up some
stumps. I put the powder into a lead
pipe. This I put . up in my grip with
some giant caps, a sawed off shotgun
and some other little things. I put
the bomb at Bradley's door some time
in November, 1904. The bomb was
arranged with giant caps, chloride of
potassium and sugar being spread
over them. It was so arranged that
when Bradley opend the door a string
atached to it would upset a bottle of
sulphuric acid."
"What was the result of this?"
"When Mr. Bradley opened the door
the next morning the explosion blew
out the whole front of the house and
blew him into, the street."
Orchard said he remained In San
Francisco two or three weeks after this
occurrence. He said he sent to Petti
bone for money and -received altogeth
er about $450 by . Postal Telegraph.
Orchard " said ' he left San Francisco
because he had nothing further to do
there. He made no further attempt
on Bradley's life. The man had been
badly -injured by the explosion. At
this point an early adjournment' was
taken because of the indisposition of
Mr. Hawley, who had been conducting
Orchard's examination. Mr. Hawley
had been suffering all day and the
heat in the crowded court room was
telling on all connected with the trial.
Court then adjourned until 9 o'clock
this morning.

upon the letters from persons purport
ing to be stockholders.
That Judge Pollock is a material wit
ness in the case was another charge
made by Tucker. Judge Pollock, he
said, could tell in what manner he was
entertained on the trip in Gardiner
Lathrop's- car; with what persons he
had talked; what letters he had re
ceived, showing the attempts that had
been made to prejudice his mind. In
another part of ' his petition Tucker
said: ,
"Judge Pollock, in dismissing the mo
tion to dismiss the proceedings said:
Is- It still the contention of the solicitors
for the makers of this motion that
this bankrutcy proceeding was caused
to be brought by the Standard Oil com
pany? Now, aside from this question,
I am free to say to counsel and counsel
must admit having closed the case,
that there is not a scintilla of evidence
introduced in behalf of your motion
that proves any conspiracy by the par
ties as charged in the motion. I regret
so far as this part of the matter is
concerned, that the motion contained
Loomis Breaks In.! "
Judge Hook made an examination of
the affidavit and called Tucker to the
witness stand. He told him to proceed
with any evidence he had to substanti
ate his charges. N. H. Loomis, attor
ney for the Union Pacific railroad, was
in the court room and Judge Hook ap
pointed him to examine Tucker. It was
brought out that Tucker was not per
sonally acquainted with Judge Pollock
or with Judge McPherson . or Judga
Philips, also attacker in the affidavit.
Tucker admitted that he had no direct
personal knowledge of the facts sworn
to in the affidavit.
"What has Judge Pollock done to
ca-use you to make that affidavit?" Mr.
Loomis asked.
Spj-s Bond Is Excessive. ,
"When I was indicted he set my bond
at $15,000. which I considered excessive.
I was also told at the time of my in
dictment that Judge Pollock said that
if the company was organized. I would
have nothing to ' do with it," said
Tucker. "I know that the Standard
Oil company and the railroads were
combined against me and were kiiock
ing on' me to everyone under their in
fluence. We don't say that the rail
roads have succeeded, but they tried to
influence the Judges."
Tucker said that one reason he want
ed to get the case out of Judge Pol
lock's court was so that the Judge
might be used as a witness'in the case.
Reference was made to the indictment
of Tucker.
"That indictment is the least of my
troubles. I don't even ask the protec
tion of the court." he snapped.
In support of the statement concern
ing the alleged conspiracy between the
tailroads and the Standard Oil com
ranv. Tucker's attorneys submitted as
evidence. Secretary Garfield's report on
the' interstate commerce commission.
"There is no railroad in the state,"
said Tucker, "that has not worked
against us."
At this point a discussion of rail
roads and a remark from Mr. Loomia
so angered Joseph Waters. 'who was
representing Tucker,, that-he jumped
from his chair and exclaimed to Mr.
"You're here to represent Mr. Har
riman, who is ' connected with 26
Broadway." ' ,' ',"
Judge Hook inquired -of Tucker as
to any interviews he had had with
newspaper men. -lucker denied- hav
ing given out any sensational state
ment to the press. At 3:35 o'clock
Judge Hook adjourned court to 4
o'clock, announcing: "Counsel will
stand prepared at that time to show
reason why the witness-should -not be
fined for contempt of court."
At 4 o'clock Judge Hook personally
resumed the examination of Tucker.
"Before this affidavit -was "filed in
court, was any suggestion made to
Judge Pollock that -you didn't want
him to sit at the trial?"
With some hesitancy-Tucker an
swered that none had been filed.
Mr. Waters examined the witness to
bring evidence that the affidavit was
in good faith nd sincere. He asked
if it is understood that the railroads
have, by rebates and concessions, dis
criminated against the Uncle Sam
company, and Tucker's answer was
snapped "yes." ,
Judge Hook then asked Tucker if
he . believed that he Judge Hook)
was in the conspiracy when he chose
Mr. Loomis to conduct the examination.-
Tucker answered "No."
In his testimony Tucker said that
he believed that less than ninety of
the 9,000 stockholders of his company
had anything except the utmost con
fidence in him. He added: "I have
no feeling -in this case except to keep
the Uncle Sam Oil company from the
clutches of the Standard." -; '
In passing sentence Judge Hook
said: . . "
"There is no precedent for an affi
davit of this character. In all of my
experience I never heard of such a
thing being done in a federal court.
My observation is that a judge is
supersensitive about sitting in a case in
which he ought not to sit. The Judge
even acts in advance of the sugges
tion of interested parties or of counsel.
From what I know of Judge Pollock,
he answers fully to that quality. If
there had been an honest, bona fide
belief in the minds of those connected
with this case that some other judge
would have been more likely to see
that Justice was done, a mere sug
gestion of that fact orally to the judge
would have accomplished all that was
desired. This scandalous affidavit was
prepared and with no opportunity
given to the judge to say 'I will not
sit in the case,' it was placed upon the
records of the: court. The clerk was
forgetful of his duty when he filed It
and placed it upon the records of the
To Create a Sensation.
"The purpose of it was merely to in
troduce a sensation Into a trial rather
than protect the rights of a litigant.
That was all that it was for, and not
content with the malicious intimation
concerning the judge of this court, the
names of two other judges are brought
in. The venerable judge of the West
ern district of - Missouri, who, since
May 6, has been performing labors in
St. Paul and Duluth that would tax
the ability and capacity of younger
men, even he is assailed in this af
fidavit. He had. no connection with
this case, it was not supposed that he
ever would have any connection with
the case. .
"Not only that, but the name of the
judge at the Southern district of Iowa
is brought into it.' Not that they want
ed, according to the affidavit's testi
mony, to use those judges as witnesses,
but simply to carry out the thinly veil
ed purpose of injecting a sensation into
the trial of this case; a scandalous, ma
licious affidavit, put upon the records
of the court behind the judges' back,
not for the purpose of getting justice,
but to prevent the judge from exercising
his right to say, 'I-will not try the case."
"I can scarcely conceive that such n.
thing would deliberately be done. I can
scarcely conceive that counsel, having
charge of the interests of this man
.would allow him to become entangled in
such a disreputable affair.. I believe
from Mr. Tucker's Own testimony that
he entertains no sincere belief that the
charges made in that affidavit are true
and that he entertained no suah. belief
when that affidavit, was prepared and
signed and sworn to. The Judgment of
the court is, Mr. Tucker has been guilty
of flagrant contempt of this court, de
signed to impede and obstruct the. ad
ministration of justice, and that he be
confined for three months in the Leav
enworth county jail. .'-..- ,
"It may be worthyof observation that
I confine this proceeding to Mr. Tucker
and do not extend it to the counsel w'ho
actually filed the affidavit. 'J should ob
serve in that iconriectioTr that Mr. Wil
son's reflections ir . the future on that
subject, considering his standing at the
bar, and the desire of every good, sin
cere lawyer to stand well, will be a
sufficient punishment. I don't think
considerations of that kind can reach
Mr. Tucker."
Mrs. Tucker Not Surprised.
At the home. Sixth and Minnesota
avenue, Kansas City. Kan., last night,
Mrs. Tucker was engaged in supervis
ing the mailing of the regular report
of the Uncle Sam- company to the
stockholders. She is 28 years old, but
has been the cashier .and confidential
clerk, as well as the helpmeet in domestic-
affairs, of the secretary, since
hin election to the office about two
years ago. Around -a long table, in
the parlor, there were fifteen men and
women, employes of ' the company.
They were folding the statements and
inserting them- into long envelopes.
Mrs. Tucker merely looked on or made
an occasional suggestion. There was
nothing in her manner to indicate that
the news of her husband's sentence
had arrived within the last hour.
To the question. "What do you think
of your husband's sentence?" Mrs.

Chicago, June 6 WHEAT The wheat
market today opened weak and with a

tions in all parts of the country were re
ported as favorable for the crop and ca
bles were easy. There was considerable
liquidation in the July option and it was
less firm than September. July wheat
opened 5c lower, at 94g95c, sold at

to 95c. September opened c to c

Tucker replied that it was expected.
"We knew it was coming, all along,"
she said. "I have been almost as close
in touch with the situation as Mr.
Tucker, and I can't say that I was
surprised at the way things turned out.
My husband moved his offices here
from the Wyandotte building when the
receiver arrived and of course even
the little formality that existed there
was removed."
"Do you mean to say that you have
been expecting this trouble to come
up for that length of time?"
"Oh, no. Not this. Still, the possi
bility of a drastic attempt on the part
of opposition to put a company out of
business has to be considered, even in
the organization of the system which
was to crush it, you know."
"Have you anything to say as to the
decision of the court todav?"
'I might say something about it be
ing. a little tardy," said Mrs. Tucker.
"They might have handed it in right
at the beginning and dispensed with
the formality of a hearing." . .
As Mrs. Tucker concluded these re
marks, tears came to her eyes.
