Days on the Stand.
UNDER FIRE 28 HOURS
Defense Will Recall Him at
Later Date.
State Begins the Introduction
of Corroborative Evidence.
Boise, June 14. The cross examina
tion of Harry Orchard was concluded
at 2:30 Thursday afternoon. He has
been on the stand for nine days and
under cross examination for 28 hours.
Richardson announced that he aeswea
later to lay a foundation for impeach
ment. At the afternoon session of court
Attorney Richardson tasked:
"Did you ever Hear McParland use
profane language?"
"Yes sir."
"And tell Bible stories at the same
time?"
"I heard him tell Bible stories, too.
"You had heard them before?"
"I had read the Bible some, but had
forgotten, it." , -t
Orchard said McParland told him
he was in a position to do the state a
great deal of good and that the state
usually acted fair with its witnesses.
"And you felt you were safe if you
helped the state?"
"I was in doubt as to what he told
me about the state using its witnesses
so well."
"Didn't it leave an Impression on
you?"
"It may have I thought of . it
some."
Orchard said McParland offered
him cigars but . he did not smoke. It
was on the third visit of the detective
that Orchard began to tell something
of his past life.
"Did you tell your attorneys had de
serted you and that the state could use
you either way it wanted to?" . ;
"No sli." -
"You hadn't given orders not to ad
mit your attorneyshad you?" '
"No."
Orchard said McParland told him
he believed the Western Federation
of Miners was responsible for. the
murder of Steunenberg and many-other
crimes. ,
Said He Was a Tool. .
Me toia you you were jusi a tool,
didn't he.?"
."Yea sir. He said he knew I was
guilty of the Steunenberg murder and
that others were connected with me."
Orchard declared that Tils talks with

McParland may have Induced him to
tell his story earlier than he otherwise
would have done, but he had made up
his mind to do It.
"I didn't want to live any longer in
that way," he went on. "and I was
tempted to put myself out of the way."
"But you changed your mind after
talking with McParland and wanted
to save yourself by putting the crime
on somebody else?"
"No sir. I had no thought of get
ting out of it by laying it on anybody
else. I began to think about my past
life and the Unnatural monster I had
been and I did not care much what
happened to me. I was afraid to die,
too, for I came to believe the grave
did not end it all. It was after I re
ceived a Bible from a missionary so
ciety in Chicago that I came to the
conclusion that I would be forgiven
if I truly repented and made a clean
breast of it all. And I have never been
in aouDt rrom tnat moment.
Several times Attorney Richardson
attempted to stop Orchard in his dra
matic recital but ha was prevented by
Attorney Hawley.
Whn Orchard paused at. last Rlon
ardson sneered, "Did McParland help
you on, this, speech?" ...
"No. sir," replied Orchard calmlv.
Orchard said he once told Steve
Adams in the penitentiary that if any
thing happened to him to rip a lett-ir
from, where vhe had it -sewn in his yst
and fend it to his brother.
"Did you tell Adams you were goirff
to 'commit-' suicide with the crystal of
your watch?"
"I don't know. . . ' ...
. Was Once a Mason. j
Orchard said he ' had once- been 1 a
member of Colburn, Canada, lodg-3 if
Masons. He knew that Peabody, Bell,
Goddard and others whose lives he had
attempted, were high degree Masons.
He did not know that Steunenberg
was, however. .
At this point, luncheon adjournment
until i:oo p. m. was taken, .
After recess Orchard was questioned
rurtner about his contemDlated suicide
He said this was some time before he had
confessed. As to his confession Or
chard said he felt be owed it as a
duty hi9 God,, his country, society ar,i
himself.
"Where did you get that language?"
.."God gave it to me."
"You got it from McParland didn't
you?"
4il did not."
"Well, he spoke to you about 5od
and your country and yourself, didn't
he?"
"I don't think he said anything about
myself."
Richardson read to the witness tiis
.oath or obligation taken.by members
of the Western Federation of Miners
and asked if he had taken any ota-?r
secret oath. . Orchard said he did not.
- The Federation Oath.
rne oath or tne feneration exacts
nothing wnicn connicts witn your duty
to God, to your country and your fel-lewmen,-
does it?"-
"Not as I remember."
' "Did you ever tell McParland you
had taken the ironclad oath of the
'inner circle' of the W. F. of M ?"
"No. sir, I did not."
Orchard said that a few weeks after
he made his confession he was remov
ed to tke penitentiary hospital build
ing. "I was sick." he added.
Orchard said he had been out of the'
penitentiary only on the occasions
when he had gone to Caldwell to ap
pear "before the giand Jury. On the
strength of Orchard's confession Stove
Adams was arrested.
"And you were put In the same cell
with him?"
"No, sir."
"He was thrown into the next cell?"
"No, sir."
' "Where was he?"
"In the same cell with me."
"He was put In with you, then?"
"Yes, sir."
. Orchard said he promised McPar
land and the penitentiary warden to
do what he could to make Adams tell
what he knew to tell the truth.
"I told Steve that I thought of
making a confession, that he had bet
ter do the same thing that the truth
had to come out some day."
"So after making your confession
you lied to Steve?"
"I don't know that I lied to him -I
didn't tell him I had fconfessed."
"Didn't you tell Steve that when you
got out you were going to put
water between you and what was left
of the Western Federation of Min
ers?" "No, sir; I said something about If
it ver happened that I got out I'd go
across the pond."
Planned to Cross Ocean.
"What were you going- across the
pond for?" . --
"There'd been so much talk in the
federation between Moyer, Havwood.
rPettibone and the others that if any-
Dody cougnea up it wouian'i ao them
any good--that they would get them
sooner or later."
"You knew you had murdered Gov
ernor Steunenberg and that you de
served hanging, didn't you?"
"Yes. sir."
"And bavins confessed and expect
ing: to be hanged you were discussing
with Steve Adams the plans for your
future?'?.. - : '.'.
Yes,; sir.;
"And this was because of what Mc
Parland had told you?"
"No, sir; I don't known that I had
any hope."
When - McParland "came to" the
penitentiary after the . arrest of Ad
ams, Orchard told the detective he
had done what he could to get Adams
to tell the truth.
Since Adams left the penitentiary
Orchard said he had not been placed
In a cell and had the freedom of the
buildings and grounds. He Insisted
McParland had made him no prom
ise of immunity.
"He said he could not make me any
promise." said Orchard, "and if he did
he couldn't keep it. He said once he
would have the prosecuting attorney
come out and see me. I told him he
needn't for when I made up my mind
to confess I would tell everything of
my own free will."
" So McParland said he -would send
the prosecuting attorney to see you
and fix it?"
"I don't know that he said fix it
that was the construction I put on it."
. "And he intended that you should
put that construction upon It?"
"I don't know that he did." .
"Governor Godding has been out t
Lsee you many times, hasn't he?"
"Yesr sir." v
Governor Calls II im Harry. '
"And calls xou Harry?"
"Yes, sir."
"And shake hands with you?"
"Yes sir."
"And talks with you . In a very
friendly way?", . . - . .,:
, "Yes." " .:. - '.- '
"Now, you know from his manner to
you that he never intends you shall be
hanged?" ...... ...
He has never told me anything of
the sort." ...
"But you know from his manner
tnat he regards you as a friend.
"He has told me he thought I was
doing right and doing a great thing for
the state and country.
' "And he said the state would be un
der obligation to you?" .
"No. sir."
Orchard said Warden Whitney also
called him "Harry.
"You've been made a hero of by Mc
Parland, the governor and the warden,
haven't you?"
"No, sir, I don't know what you
mean by hero." . . .
Orchard denied that "he ate his
meals at the warden's home or that he
ever had wine with his meals..
His food came to him from the war
den's kitchen. ' , h. i .
Orchard was questioned at length
about Mi written confession. He said
he wrote two, having left some of his
misdeeds out of his first.
"Did you write in this confession or
book the speech you made here on the
witness stand about your duty to your
God and your country?"
"No, sir."
"Who wrote that statement for
you?" ,
"Nobody."
"You had no preparation for it?"
"I may have thought of what I
would say."
Orchard denied that he had ever
been put in a chair and examined and
cross examined by the attorneys for
the state in preparation for the trial.
Orchard was remanded to tho custody
of Warden Whitney.
The state at once entered upon its
plan of corroborating Orchard's testi
mony, taking up the first attempt on
the life of Fred Bradley of San Fran
cisco. BANKRUPT

QUESTION BONE,
U. S. District Attorney Is Giyeh
a Severe Examination,
As a Witness in the Uncle Sam
Oil Heariug.
A GENERAL DENIAL.
Says He Was Not in a Plot f to
Indict Mr. Tucker.
J. B. Tomlinson Tells of the
Advice He Gave Promoter.
Leavenworth, Kan., June 14. The
trial of fthe Uncle Sam company's bank
ruptcy suit was resumed in the dis
trict court here this morning. Harry
Bone, United States district attorney
for Kansas,' who was charged by H.
H. Tucker, Jr., deposed manager of the
im.pany' wlth being in a conspiracy
i? Standard Oil company and
others to have a fraud order issued by
the postoffice department against the
Uncle Sam, company, was the last v't-
jesteraay. The allegation by
Tucker and his attorneys that Mr
Bone, r. r. Hite and W. S. McClin-toek,-lawyers,
were in a Standard Oil
conspiracy to indict Tucker was read
to Bone and .he was asked if it was
true. ' - ;
"No," replied Mr. Bone. "
Mr. Bone said that hn
Standard Oil officer In hl3 life and
never had any connection with the
company. He said that he had only a
general knowledge of . the Uncle Sam
Oil company until itr. Harrison, rbe
chief postofflce inspector of this dis
trict, called him up from Kansas City
by telephone April 7 and called his
attention to the company. The foilo.v
ing morning three postofflce inspectors
came to Topeka with evidentes of
lraud against Tucker and acting as
prosecuting attorney he had them ap
pear before the grand jury and Tucker
was Indicted on their . testimony.
Attorney Wilson cross-examined "3one
and wanted to know if he had said the
Uncle Sam company was -a fraud.
Bone replied that from what he had
learned of the 'companj recently he
was satisfied it was conducted in a
fraudulent manner.
Bone said the first draft of th-2 in
dictment was prepared by Judge West,
and later, after, getting more evidence
from the inspectors, another draft was
made, D. R. Hite, assisting. Attorney
Wilson in cross-examination tried to
make Bone admit he had openly spo
ken unfavorably of the company on
several occasions, and had shows an
unfriendly feeling in other ways. This
Bone denied emphatically, admitting
that he had, however, stated over tne
telephone to some one who called him
from Kansas City that . he did not
think it was a good company to invest
in, basing this opinion on what the
postofflce inspectors had told him.
Wilson started to ask Bone what the
postoffice inspectors, told him about thi
Ullcle Sam company when objection was
made and Judge Amidon said to Wil
son: "I will allow vou to ask any question
you. know anything! about th4 .will in
dicate that an improper influence was
exercised, but I am not goingi'.to try the
criminal case."
Wilson That puts rather a hard con
dition on 'me. I was not present at any
of these conferences. ' - ,
Judge Amidon You have made cer
tain charges in your answer, you ought
to have something to base these charges
on and if you hav,e anything relating to
this matter, you may ask- this witness
about it.
Judge Amidon said this in a very earn
est manner pointing a pencil at Wilson
to , emphasize his remarks. Wilson
showed embarrassment and did not ask
any more questions to back up his alle
gations of conspiracy.
Earlier in the" afternoon J. B. Tomlin
son, former attorney for the Uncle Sam
company, testified that at the time of
the indictment of H. H. Tucker, secre
tary and manager of the company. In
the federal court on a charge of fraud,
there was about $40,000 in debts and
$3,000 in the bank. He said he advised
Tucker to draw the fhoney from the
bank, that he would need it to live' on
and to make his defense in the criminal
case against him. He said Tucker put
the money in a safety deposit vault.
The cross examination cf Mr. Tomlin
Eon by Alfred Wilson was snappy. Wil
son's questions were aggressive and in
sinuating while Tomlinson's answers
were defiant. The lawyers Indulged in
arguments making remarks reflecting
on each others legal ability. Judg
Amidon finally said to Mr. Tomlinson:
"Ftorget you are a lawyer and make
your answers as short as possible." .
Wilson asked Tomlinson a line of
questions about the solvency of the
Uncle Sam Oil -company and the wit
ness finally answered that the com
pany wa3 solvent when the bank
ruptcy proceedings were instituted.
When asked why he "urged the bank
ruptcy suit Tomlinson said that it was
to head off others from getting a re
ceiver appointed He was afraid that
some judge in the state courts would
appoint one and tie up the company
property. Tomlinson stated that two
Judgments had been' secured against
the Uncle Sam company in Montgom
ery county and a receiver could have
been procured on thfm at any time.
Tomlinson told of going with Tuck
er to Washington in 1905 to prevent a
mail fraud order issuing against the
Uncle Sam. company. Tomlinson pre
pared the answer to the charges filed
with the postoffice department. He
said in answer to questions from-Wil-pon
that D. W. Mulvane accompanied
Tucker and himself to Washington, but
that Mr. Mulvane did not appear as an
attorney or do anything before the
postofTipe "department. The fraud or
der was .not issued at that time on
promises from Tucker to conduct his
business" in a different manner.
Arthur Miller, Edwin Comack and
John M. Davis,' lawyers' clerks in the
office or Karnes. Nes, & Kxautnonr.
were put on the witness stand and tes
tified that they used the bonds- fur
nished them by Tucker to " begin the
l-ankruptuy suit. Under cross examin-H
ation they acknowledged "they had no
financial. Interest in the bonds. Wlson
asked them a line of questions, trying
to Impeach the truth of their affidavits,
when they swore in" the original peti
tion in the suit that they owned Jhe
bonds and were creditors of the Uncle
Sam company and .that the company
was bankrupt. ? '.. ' t
