CAN'T SHAKE HIM
Haywood's Attorneys GiTe Or
chard Up as a Bad Job.
Are Merely Laying Fonndation
for Contradictory Evidence.
ADAMS ON Till WAY.
Another Prisoner Witness for
State to Be Heard.
His Story Expected to Eclipse
the One Already Told.
Boise, Idaho, June 10. Harry Orchard
commenced his fifth day's grilling on
the witness stand in the Haywood mur
der trial this morning. Tlte tragedies
of two years of his life, prior to the
time the gates of the Idaho penitentiary
closed upon him, have yet to be re
hearsed in detail. Under the cross ex
amination of E. F. Richardson the tax
upon the man's memory would appear
to be more than the ordinary mind could
be capable of, but so far Orchard has
stood the test. If he goes through the
cross examination with as little confus
ion in his statements as he has evi
denced the last few days, it will have
been, perhaps, the most remarkable 5X
hibition ever given on a v.-itness stand.
"Counsel for the defense themselves do
not hesitr.te to pronounce Orchard tha
most difficult proposition thsyhave ever
been called upon to face in the course
of their experiences as lawyers. Prac
tically they have given up hope of being
able to shake tha man's testimony so far
as material points are concerned and
they sav that the present examination
is made'not for the purpose of confusing
Orchard, but to place before the Juiy
statements which they will contradict
in detail by their own witnesses.
Among the witnesses expected to ar
rive in the city today is foimer Gover
nor Peabody of Colorado.
Steve Adams to Testify.
Steve Adams, another prisoner-witness
for the state, is now on his way to
Boise, coming from the Jail at Wallace,
where he is held pending trial on the
charge of murder. Adams will give his
confession on the stand. Adams, ac
cording to Harry Orchard, was the part
ner of the assassinator in many of the
"bumping off" expeditions, successful
and unsuccessful, to which Orchard ha3
made confession. Adams also confessed
last year, but, unlike Orchard, he re
pudiated the confession when he faced
the eallows. The confession is, however.
pworn and in writing. It shows careful
correction and interlineation in Adams'
Astounding though it may seem,
those who have seen Adams' confes
sion say it surpasses Orchard's story
of cold blooded man hunting and mur
der. Since Adams wrote his confes
sion he has told still more to the
attorneys for the state. The list of
Adams' alleged victims is not as long
as that with which Orchard credits
himself, but this is said to be because
Steve Adams stillhunted a single quar
ry, while Harry Orchard, to use his
own words, did not care wnetner lie
killed one man or fifty."
Mrs. Orchard to Be a Witness.
Another witness, who arrived in
Boise today is Mrs. Ida Toney Or
chard, the widow with three children,
whom Orchard married, notwithstand
ing the existence of another wife in
Canada. It was definitely decided to
day that Mrs. Ida Toney Orchard will
be a witness for the defense. It is un
derstood she will testify that Orchard,
while he lived at Cripple Creek, .was
in the employ of the mine owners. It
is expected by the defense that she
will be able to throw some light upon
the motives of Orchard and will be re
lied on to strengthen the claim of the
defense that the mine owners and not
the Western Federation of Miners
were- the conspirators who employed
Orchard to murder. Orchard married
the second time at Cripple Creek
when he was at work as a miner. At
that time he was a member of the
miner's union. They were married
shortly before the great strike broke
out in 1904. The woman was keeping
a miners boarding house.
Some new light has been thrown on
the murder of Lyte Gregory in Denver.
According to statements made by the
police in Denver, Orchard and Simp
kins, or whoever his accomplice was,
were suspected at the time of the mur
der. Hounds tracked them to the yard
behind . Pettibone's store, where Or
chard says he hid his guns. The po
lice were about to arrest the two men,
when orders came from some myster
ious source that the men were not to
be molested, and OrchRrd was allowed
to get out of town. This statement is
said to have been made by the chief of
detectives of Denver, Loomis, and Paul
Gregory, a brother of the murdered
man. It is probable that both will be
called as witnesses and the mysterious
order allowing Orchard to get away
w ill be investigated.

Denver. Colo., June 10. About 200 del
egates to the fifteenth annual conven

prise. No opposition to continuing in office
President Charles H. Moyer and Secretary-Treasurer

Every Saloon in the Town Closed at
Midnight of Saturday. .
Leavenworth, June 10. This city
today for the first time in many years
has not an open saloon. The twenty
five or thirty that were left over after
the vigorous campaign of the past two
weeks closed their doors at midnight
and made no pretense of opening on
Sunday. Nor are they open today.
Leavenworth is dry.
It is understood the saloon keepers
in the county were also given "of
ficial" notice to close their places and
some of them have already done so.
Saturday, Acting County Attorney
Harper, while in the court house, re
ceived a phone message from the at
torney general who said in substance:
"Get some- officer whom ydl can
trust; give him the list of names of all
in Leavenworth who are selling
liquor, as furnished you by. Chief of
Police Cranston; have this officer go
to all of these places and notify the
keepers thereof that they must close
their places of business at- midnight
tonight, to remain, closed; that if any
of them open Uieir places and sell
liquor after midnight tonight search
and seizure 'warrants will be issued,
their places raided and injunctions
will be run against the buildings they
Attorney Harper gave to the deputy
sheriff the list of saloons furnished
him by Chief Cranston and then
started on his long trip, to visit 105
places. Some of them he found closed
tight: others were still running.
Larkin didn't look for the "evidence:"
h was merely on duty notifying the
places to close and he did so. The list
he had contained the names of all of
the saloon men together1 with the
number of the property they occupied.
The action was effective.
SCULPTOR WORKS IX JAIL.
Ife Is Modeling a Group of the Italian
Rome. June 10. Felippo Ciefarello,
a noted Italian sculptor, who was in
prison in Naples for more than a year,
awaiting his trial for the murder of
his woman companion who was a mu
sic hall star, has recently been per
mitted to work at his art in order to
ease Ms mind of his material troubles.
An adjoining cell has been fitted up as
a studio and here, the sculptor, who
is believed to be mad, passes the day
modeling with feverish activity. His
latest work is a magnificent group of
the royal family which he has taken
from a picture postcard.
The artist has announced his inten
tion of having it cast in bronze, after
which he will turn it over to King
Victor. He expects that it will be sold
and he hopes that the money it brings

partment Mayor William ' Green does
not favor increasing tne numoer by
any further promotions. It is stated
that an application is pending for the
promotion of one of the firemen long
in service to the higher rank of lieuten
ant : but Mayor Green refused to take
any personal action on the matter this
morning, agreeing to nave the applica
tion referred to the proper council com
mittee. The position of lieutenant car
rles with it an increase in- pay. The
lieutenant takes charge of a company
when the captain is off duty or happens
to be absent. Otherwise, his duties are
merely nominal and are on a par with
that of a regular fireman. -
