Appointed Bank Commissioner of State of Idaho. AT HAYWOOD TRIAL. Thinks That Federation Officer Will Be ConTicted. Orchard's Testimony Will Be Fully Corroborated. W. S. Chaney of Boise, Idaho, for merly councilman from the Fourth ward of the city of Topeka, and now bank commissioner of the state of Ida ho, is in Topeka today with Mrs. Chan ey. en route to Philadelphia, where Mr. Chaney will attend the National as sociation of bank supervisors. Mr. Chaney was appointed bank commissioner of Idaho about a month ago, to succeed C. S. Loveland, who re signed to accept a position as national bank examiner. Mr. Chaney does not, however, relinquish his large land and Irrigation Interests at and near Poco tello. Mr. Chaney has attended a number of sessions of the Haywood trial which Is in progress at Boise and says of it: "I believe that the state is going to convict Haywood and the other officers of that miners" union of these murders. cGovernor Gooding told me a few days ago that he was going to see this thing through to a finish, and that Orchard's testimony would be corroborated in every detail. The state has had this confession in its possession for a num ber of months, and has had time to look up all these corroborating circum stances. I believe that the Jury is a fair one. and will do its duty. Of course there is a great deal of ercite rnent about this case, and few people are admitted to the court room where the trial is being held except wit nesses, newspaper representatives and lawyer;". Bvery man admitted Is ex amined pretty closely by the deputy sheriffs, unless he is well known. "Orchard is a clean cut. well built man, and one who does not look as thousrh he was capable of such terrible crimes. As nearly as I can find out, he has really repented of his crimes, and is making a clean breast of It. It Is denied by all concerned that he has any promise of immunity from punish ment, and I doubt whether they will be able to show that any such deal has been made. McParland, the Pinkerton detective who ran down the Molly Ma guires. Is there with his body guard. McParland seems to have gotten the confession out of Orchard by working on his religious passions. "Of course there is tremendous sup pressed excitement, and the feeling is that there is danger of other outrages similar to those committed by Or chard. Orchard seems to have had no trouble in finding men to help him in his diabolical crimes, and when he couldn't think of anybody, Haywood would step in and make suggestions. I was in the office of the governor's pri vate secretary a few days ago, and he pulled cut a tin box and showed it to me. It contained over 150 threatening letters which had been received by the governor. Governor Gooding has a fine residence in Boise, but he has closed it up, and is living at a hotel. It is generally supposed that the rea son is because he does not consider it safe to live at his own home. "When the Steunenberg murder was committed, the officers of the law had the town surrounded in a very few minutes, and no one was allowed to depart without being examined. Orchard was arrested the next day at the hotel. A reward of $1,000 was of fered by the state for the capture of the murderer, to which the governor added $4,000 from his personal funds, "Just to show how the state is get ting ready to back up the story of Orchard. I will tell you a little inci dent that occurred on the train near Olenwood, Col., while 1 was coming here. I got to talking with a man on the train who said that he was from Olenwood, and that a friend of his who runs a tinshop there had Just left for Boise to testify in regard to mak ing one of those lead cases which afterwards became part of one of those bombs. He did not know what the case was for, but assumed that it was for some legitimate purpose. Or chard was the man who bought the case. Mr. Chaney is enthusiastic about the state of IJaho. He says it is a country of wonderful possibilities, and that people are sure to make lots of money there out of the irrigated lands. He is now in close touch with political matters, and is one of the leaders of the Republican party in that state. No Room for the Insane. Alice Lovell, a negro woman who was sent to the insane asylum several months ago, was returned to the coun ty lall about June 1. and has been con fined there since that time, presum ably waiting for instructions. Last evening her husband. who lives in North Topeka. came after her and took her home. The officers at the county jail say they had no instructions con cerning the woman, who was sent in from the asylum to make room for some other patient. A negro boy who has been adjudged insane has been held at the jail several days waiting for a berth at the asylum, which seems to be crowded to the roof.

Independence, Kan.; June 15. H. G. James has the following article in the Reporter concerning Emmett Dalton: I went through the Lansing peniten tiary this afternoon and had a talk with Emmett Dalton. Before seeing the former bandit, I talked with a number of the prison officers and guards relative to his parole, and I was surprised to find there was not a dissenting voice regarding his excellent conduct and worthiness. Emmett Dal ton, so far as his prison associates are concerned, has outlived his crime. Dalton was admitted to the peniten tiary March 8, 1893, fourteen years ago. At that time he was 19 years of age past, being now 34. He might pass for 28. He has never given the prison officers any trouble since he came here. At all times he has been an ideal man. He has learned several trades and studied, and the result is at once no ticeable in his face an open, frank, intelligent countenance. As he entered the office, I approach ed to meet him. Dalton was sent to prison ten years before I came to Kan sas, and of course, I never knew him. I should not have picked him out as Dalton, the prisoner, had I not been told he was approaching. I asked Dal ton what was being done to secure his parole, and he said numerous friends were working for him, and he hoped soon to secure his release. One of the prison officers expressed the opinion that Dalton would be out before the expiration of Gov. Hoch's present term. I asked him if he proposed to return to Montgomery county you know he used to live in Coffey ville and still re members many of the people, and he replied he did not think it advisable. "I shall go to work for Clay, Robin son & Co., live stock and commission merchants of Kansas City. I have known Mr. Robinson a long time and he has agreed to give me a position." The probabilities are Dalton will not go to work anywhere at once after his release. During that memorable day in Coffeyville he was shot in the mus cle of the right arm. Recently the wound has been giving him a great deal of trouble, and if he does not soon have an opportunity to go to some hos pital where the? arm can be opened and the bone scraped, he Is liable to lose his arm. The bone is decaying. I am frank to say that I have here tofore been prejudiced against Emmett Dalton, but since seeing him and con versing with him. since talking with the men who have been his daily com panions for years, I am Just as frank to say that I now believe Emmett Dal ton should be given his freedom. The object of penitentiaries is to remove dangerous men from society and to re form them. I believe this has been ac complished in the fullest sense in the case of Emmett Dalton. and now, if it is in him to be a credit to society, I believe he should be given that oppor tunity. I asked Former Warden Tom llnson what he thought of releasing Emmett Dalton and he replied that he favored It. He voiced the sentiments of the officers I had talked with. He considers Dalton an exceptional man. First Presbyterian church, Harrison street opposite state capitol, Stephen S. Estey. I. D., Ph. D., pastor, residence 819 Harrison street.

Statisticians Figure Loss at Twenty-six Per Cent. P0 OR SERVICE, MAY BE This Is Possible Result of En actment of New Laws. Other Items of Interest to Railway People. Chicago, June 15. Statisticians have been at work figuring up the loss of revenue that will be sustained by the railroads from the passage of 2-cent passenger fare laws by so many of the states during the last year. The result has been to reveal that the rev enues derived from passenger traffic constitute 27.58 per cent of total in come, and that losses through the en forced lowering of rates will be 26 per cent on business in states where these laws have been passed. In Illinois, for example, the reduction of rates from Chicago to several lead ing points in or adjacent to the state show a range of decrease running 20 to per cent, me average being 26 per cent. From Chicago to St. Louis the loss is 20 per cent, to Cairo it is 33 per cent, to Quincy it is 28 per cent, to tocK isiana at is 27 per cent, ana so on. i As has been stated, the average pro portion of: revenue from passenger business on railroads or the United States is 27.58 per cent. In the geo graphical division to which Illinois be longs the proportion is practically the same. To cut off 26 per cent of this proportion would, it is claimed, in many cases mean bankruptcy, especial ly in these times, when the cost of rendering the service required of the roads is increasing enormously. The wages of railroad employes are advanc ing; the cost of everything entering into the construction, maintenance and operation of the roads has advanced materially. These are among the arguments that will be advanced when the roads ap peal to the courts to prevent the stat utes being given force and effect. Should the laws referred to be al lowed to stand, it will become a seri ous question if the people, after all, will not be the heaviest sufferers. Here tofore the service rendered by the. roads running into Chicago has been "excel lent, not to say luxurious. The roads have prided themselves in giving the best that ingenuity could invent or that money could buy. . With the low rates in effect they say they will not be able to do so any longer. The number of trains will have to be reduced, the running time length ened, inferior cars furnished and alto gether the service must be allowed to deteriorate to a considerable extent. If the roads cannot charge for first-class service, they cannot render it. Ameri cans usually want the best there is to be had, and it is possible that before long, if effect be given the new laws, they .will be clamoring for their re peal .j . m.ijla TWO CENT RATE NOT TO APPLY.

Chicago, June lS.-Western rail roads have decided not to apply any 2-cent passenger rates to interstate traffic unless compelled by the courts. This decision was reached today by all the western lines. Eastern roads were represented at the conference, but postponed the question. In the east the problem is somewhat differ ent, as there is likely to be a contest In one or two of the states having 2-cent-fare laws. The 2-cent-rate sit uation in the west may be summarized as follows: Illinois Rate goes into effect July 1. Railroad attorneys have been in structed to prepare a Joint bill asking the courts for relief. Minnesota Rate went into effect May 1.

Says Law Gives No Authority Over Sleeping Car Concerns. Washington, June 15. Denying that it is a common carrier, and thereloe not amenable to the laws governing or regulating commerce between the states, the Pullman Sleeping Car com pany today gave to the interstate com merce commission what amounts to a notice that the constitutionality of the railroad rate act, in so far as it ap plies to sleeping car companies, will be put to the test. The Pullman com pany, in asserting that it is not a com mon carrier, contends that its opera tions are not subject to regulation or control by the interstate commerce commission. The Pullman company's attitude to ward the railroad rate act was dis closed in its reply to the charges made by George S. Loftus, a traveling sales man, living in St. Paul, who filed with the commission a complaint against the Pullman company and several northwestern railroads. The Pullman company denies that its rates for berths are excessive, unjust or unrea sonable, and likewise combats the proposition that a charge for an "up per" equal to that collected for a "lower" is discriminatory, or unfair, in any event, the Pullman company states, in substance, that the commis sion has no jurisdiction. Government officials say that the answer of the Pullman company means that the question as to whether sleep ing car companies are common car riers will have to be fought out in the courts. The railroad rate act is clear and explicit in its definition of the term "common carrier." They are de clared to be "any corporation or any person or persons engaged in the transportation" of persons or property between the states. The language of the law is not considered ambiguous. HIGH WAGES CAUSED STRIKE. Rock Island Employes Believed Clerk's Rise Too Rapid. Chicago, June 15. A hundred men went on strike and tied up the freight transfer house of the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific railroad at Blue Island yesterday because the promotion of one clerk had been more rapid than the strikeis considered fair. The trouble was due to I. G. Davis. A year a;?o Davis was transferred from Spring Valley to Blue Island, where his work at once met favor at the hands of those in charge. He was found to be speedy and efficient, and it was not long until he was given an ad vance ir pay. When another increase was given to Davis there was mutter ing among the clerks in the transfer office, many of whom had been with the company for years and who, they said, had not received tne recognition accorded to the new man. A short time ago Davis' pay was increased from $88 to $100 a month, and the clerks decided to take action. A com mittee was named to protest to the chiefs. There was a conference at which there was animated discussion of the situation. , The protestants said that the action of the company in favoring Davis was unfair: that though he had been in the office onlv twelve months he was getting higher pay than several men who had been in the place for years. The railway officials took the stand that Davis had proved his wortn ana had been given only what the com pany believed was due him. FAVOR STATE CONTROL.

Chicago, June 15. Eastern rail roads have turned a deaf ear to the shippers who are protesting against the increases in freignt rates which are to go into effect September 1. The temper of the eastern traffic officials is not the smoothest with respect to the rate question. They say that the shippers have run to the commission whenever they de sired anything which was unfair to the railroads, and. now that the shippers have some freight rates which they do not like it is the policy of the roads to let the shippers take the question of reasonableness before the commis sion. It is, therefore, understood that the rates proposed will go into effect with out any changes. GOUTiD LINE INDEPENDENT. Ignores Order of Missouri's Railroad) Commissioners.
