Tells of the Building of the
Waterway Across the Isthmus.
Is Greeted With a Splendid
Crowd at the Chautauqua.
Politicians and Prominent
. Friends Bine With Him.
Ottawa, Kan.. Juno 21. One of the
greatest crowds in the history of the
Ottawa Chautauqua assembly greeted
William H. Taft, secretary of war, upon
fcls appearance on the platform Thurs
day afternoon, i Every seat In the great
park tabernacle was filled, and crowds
stood about the outer edges.
" While none of the State executive
officers accompanied the Taft party,
owing to the conflict of date with the
battleship Kansas ceremony, most of
the federal crowd were on hand. Sen
ator Long assumed charge of the dis
tinguished visitor, having accompanied
him from Leavenworth with a number
of the federal court officers. At Holll
day Senator Curtis Joined the party and
along the line a number of statesmen
boarded the train. A local committee
who met Mr. Taft at Kansas City con
sisted of Judge Smart, F. M. Harrle
and A. L. Miller.
A committee headed by Judge Benson
escorted the party and prominent men
attended the meeting to the Elsmere
boarding house, Ottawa being badly off
for hotels, where they were the guests
of the city at luncheon. At Secretary
Taft's table were Senators Long and
Curtis, Col. Jack Harris, National Com
mitteeman Mulvane, Congressman
Scott, W. R. Stubbs, J. L. Bristow, Rev.
Bernard Kelly. W. T. Morgan and Hen
ry J. Allen. Other prominent Kansans
were Congressman Calderhead, Senators
Kitzpatrick, Qulncy and Porter of Mont
gomery, Representative Stockton of
Woodson, State Bank Commissioner
Royce. State Chairman Moore, Grant
Hornaday, Railroad Commissioner Ry
ker, H. J. Bone, F. P. MacLennan, U. S.
Marshal Mackey, H. F. Mllliken of the
Dodge City land office, S. S. Ashbaugh,
C N. Price of Pittsburg, and others.
It was a splendid demonstration,
made all the more picturesque by the
' waving of bright colored fans and
handkerchiefs by the women. Mr.
Taft's voice, in spite of a severe cold,
appeared to carry to all parts of the
ha! I.
. "As I stand In this magnificent pres
ence." he said. "I must apologize for
coming to you with a voice which
may fail to reach to the distant part
of this great audience. My un
fortunate voice is due to a bad cold
and will prev-nt me giving expres
sion as I should like.
' But when I make an excuse for a
bad voice I'm reminded of a story told
me by one of the Justices in Ireland.
A defendant was before the court for
manslaughter, having hit a Tipperary
n.an on the head with a blackthorn
' stick, from which he died. The testi
mony of the surgeo.ia showed that the
nun had what is known as a "paper
skull.' The man was found guilty and
asked what he had to say why sen
tence rhould not be pronouncd.
" 'Nothin' much.' he said, 'except

that I d like to know what business
has a man wid a head like that In
"And so I ask, what right has a
man w.th a throat like mine in sucn
a presence ?"
Aside from these opening words in
his speech Secretary Taft confined him
self strictly to his topic, but in these
opening sentences he replied to the
challenge from W. J. Bryan the day
before. "The distinguished citizen of
Nebraska who s caressed you yesterday
with an anxiety for my welfare, which
I very much appreciate," said Mr. Taft
"named several subjects which he de
sired me to speak to you about. I beg
to remind the distinguished Nebraskan
that I have discussed these questions
of the trusts, tariff revision and railroad
regulation on ptcper ocenstons. Mean
time I reortsent an administration that
is carrying out policies, and not mak
lrg denunclatoiy and declaratory
statements for campaign purposes.
When the appropriate time comes to
renew the discurMon of these questions
I will state my opinions, which have
not changed.
Turning to th subject of the Pana
ma Canal, Mr. Taft said the necessary
ground work had been done, and that
real results) were now being accom
plished. There is no place in the spirit
of this country said Mr. Taft, for the
constitutional fault finder. Basing his
conclusions on the reports of the en
gineers Mr. Taft said the canal would
be finished in seven years.
The secretary's voice was husky
from a recent cold, and he had some
difficulty at firs in making himself
heard. He persistently avoided refer
ences to the presidency, further than
to reiterate his statement concerning
the story of his possible withdrawal
from the contest.
Many people greeted the secretary
as the next president during the day.
Mr. Taft received the salutation with
a smile. ,
The secretary, accompanied by W.
T. Morgan. H. J. Allen and delega
tions of statesmen left for the east
at 4:15.
Last night Congressman Scott, whose
subject. The Panama Canal, had
been borrowed by Secretary Taft. ad
dressed a big audience on the subject
of the Philippines, showing views of
the islands. The congressman was In
the crowd on the depot platform to
greet Secretary Taft upon the party's
"Hello. Scotty." said the secretary,
slapping the congressman on the back.
Battle With a Bie Fish.
Chester Marcum, a farm hand near
West Auton, is exhibiting many scars
and a fifty-pound catfish to bolster up
a story of a fierce hand-to-fln battle
which he claims tooK place a lew days
ago in the shallow shore waters of
the Missouri river.
According to Marcum's story, he
was fishing in the Missouri with a
75-foot throw line, and when he had
cast it out into the deep water for the
seventh time he felt a mighty pull and
began drawing his catch in toward the
After he had drawn the fish to the
shallow water near shore the line
broke. He promptly leaped into the
pool and grasped the fish's fins. The
"cat" couldn't swim with ease in that
depth, but it struggled and threw
Marcum down, submerging him. He
rose undaunted and renewed the battle
with bleeding hands. After fifteen
minutes of fierce struggling he was
victor. He dragged the fish to the
bank, rested half an hour, and then
took it to West Alton. St. Louis Dis
patch to New Tork World.

Boise, Idaho. June 21. What is ex
pected to be the last day of the direct
evidence to "be produced by the state
of Idaho against William D. Haywood
will be occupied with the evidence
filling In the gaps left open because
of the absence of witnesses or docu
ments. The defense will not attempt to deny
or contradict Orchard's statements
that he is many times a murderer or
that he is guilty of the crimes of
which he stands charged, but they
maintain that their client Haywood
had no connection with them. Today
or tomorrow they will move that the
charge against Haywood be dismissed
becausp the state has failed to show
his connection with any of the crimes
of which Orchard has told or to con
nect him with the specific crime of
wihch he stands charged.
If the action of the defense to dis
msis is denied the defense will com

the opening speech and will present
the case for the defense. Then will

The real struggle begins with the

Thursday Afternoon.
Boise, June 21. The reading of the
Miners' magazines continued through
a great part of Thursday in the Hay
wood trial. Judge Wood naming each
exhibit and announcing at the same
time that an objection by the defense
to its admission would be overruled
and an exception noted.
Senator Borah read each article as
the exhibit was called. He made no
attempt at declamation and in fact
called out a protest from Clarence
Darrow who at the close of one piece
of graphic writing said Jokingly: "If
you have any more like that. I wish
you'd let us read them."
The matter introduced cover
ed a wide range from political com
ment to extreme denunciation of
Steunenberg. Peabody and Goddard
coming In for the greater share of the
more violent language. The dates ran
from 1900 to the end of 1905, but
Judge Wood ruled out all the matter
offered from the magazines and ap
pearing in the numbers issued after
the death of Steunenberg.
Ed Boyce, the former president of
the Western Federation of Miners, now
a wealthy mine owner of this state,
was a constructive witness during the
reading, although he was not actually
on the stand. He had been introduced
by the state to testify that the Miners'
magazine was the official organ of the
Western Federation of Miners. At the
conclusion of the reading, the defense
announced that there would be no
cross examination of Mr. Boyce.
Judge Wood here allowed the state
to introduce a decision by the supreme
court or tJolorado declaring unconsti
tutional the eight hour law. Judge
Goddard participated in the decision.
The defense insisted that the de
cision be read in entirety. Senator
Borah being at the task for nearly an
hour. Luncheon adjournment then
was taken until 2 o'clock.
State Nearly Tlirough.
Senator Borah announced that the
state would undoubtedly close today.
After recess Senator Borah offered in
evidence a decision of the supreme
court of Florida in the case of Charles
H. Mover, denying a writ of habeas
corpus to the president of the Western
Federation of Miners. The opinion
was written by Chief Justice Gabbart
and was identified for the purpose of
showing alleged animus of the federa
tion against the jurist, whose life was
attempted by Harry Orchard. The
reading of the decision of the court
was dispensed with for the time being
to enable the state to call to the stand
James Kirwan, acting secretary of the
Western Federation of Miners in the
absence of Haywood.
Kirwan detailed the duties of the of
fice he now fills. He was asked about
the membership of the executive board
in different years, the object being to
show that Jack Simpklns implicated by
Orchard in the first attempt upon Gov
ernor Steunenberg, was a member of
the board in 1904, 1905 and 1906. Kir
wan paid this was true. He said the
president and recretary and treasurer
are ex-officio members of the board.
Money from the treasury of the or
ganization-is paid out on order of the
president and secretary end treasurer.
This was all that was desired of Mr.
Kirwan and he was released without
Said He Ought to Be Killed.
E. M. Stewart, a machinist of Ba
ker City, Ore., formerly chief engineer
of the Trade Dollar mine at Silver
City, was called to testify as to a con
versation he had with Haywood in
3S99. The defense objected to this tes
timony on the ground that any critic
ism of Steunenberg during the Coeur
D'Alenes trouble could not have any
thing to do with fixing the responsi
bility for his death. It was also ar
gued that in 1899, Haywood was but a
working miner, holding no office what
ever in the Western Federation of
Miners. Judge Wood allowed the tes
timony. Mr. Haywood said Governor Steunen
berg was a tyrant and monster and
ought to be killed I believe extermina
ted, was the word he used," said the
Cross-examined by Richardson. Stew
art said that criticism of Governor
Steunenberg was common among the
miners at Silver City, because 1,000
minera were in the "bull pen" at the
time and were held without trial. Ask
ed how it was he remembered what
Haywood said, Stewart replied:
I had always looked on Mr. Hay-
wocd as a model citizen and was sur
prised to hear him say what he did."
Haywood made several such utter
ances thereafter but so far as his con
duct was concerned, he remained a
model citizen.
Stewart said several other men were
present when Haywood made the state
ment regarding Steunenberg. Hf could
r.ot recall any of their names. He did
not remember the names of any of the
men working in the mine at that time.
The next witness was . W. V. Mc
Cartney, who, in 1904, was cashier of
me Postal Teleeranh company at Den
er. He was handed-and he identified
en application filed with him for the
transfer of a sum of money. . The iden
tification cf the man to whom the mon
ey was sent was waived by the sender.
The papers indicated that the money
was paid.
The papers were then offred In evi
dence. The first nroved to be an ap
plication made bvJ. W. Wolff of 1725
Stout street, Denver, to have the com
pany pay 197.50, to "Green carpenter,
care Peter L. Huff, 211 Taylor street,
San Francisco."
Assumed Names.
"J.W.Wolff" is alleged to have been
the name taken by George A. Petti
bone and 1725 Stout street was the
address of Pettibone's store. Orchard
testified on the stand that he had re
ceived this money from Pettibone
who had told him "Harry Green" was
a good enough name for any one.
The date of the money transfer was
September 10, the time Orchard was
in San Francisco, engaged in opera
tions against Fred Bradley.
The second paper showed the trans
fer on October 15, 1904, of $48 to
"H. M. Green" in San Francisco from
"P. Bone." Denver. Orchard testified
that the name "Pat Bone" was often
used by Pettibone.
The defense did not cross examine
McCarty but moved unsuccessful to
have all his testimony stricken out as
it . did not in any way connect the de
fendant, Haywood, with the killing of
ex-Governor Steunenberg.
Senator Borah said this ended the
state's case with the exception of
some records from the Denver office of
the Western Union Telegraph com
pany which are expected today. If
they arrive the state will close by
noon. The senator then, as the last
bit of work of the day. read the de
cision denying the writ - of habeas
corpus to Charles H. Moyer.
The defense insisted that a dissent
ing opinion of the court should also be
read. Judge Wood granted the at
torneys for the defense permission to
read the opinion, but said Senator
Borah would not be required to do the
task. It was finally agreed to let the
reading go over until today at 9:30 a.
m., to which time court adjourned.
Attorney Darrow stated that after
the close of the state's case the de
fense would have an important mat
ter to present as to the line of the de
fense. This was the notification that
the defense will move the court to in
struct the jury to render a verdict of
not guilty on the ground that the state
has not sufficiently connected Hay
wood with the death of Governor
Steunenberg. If this motion is de
nied the defense will ask for an ad
journment until Monday when Mr.
Darrow will make the opening state
ment. H. H. Bear spent Thursday in Kan

Wall St., New York, June 21. STOCKS
Trading today was in slightly larger
volume than of late at the opening, and
the tendency of prices was downwards.
The heavy tone was due in large part
to the depression In the London market
where Internationally listed stocks weak
ened sharply. Losses here were from
to ir. Atchison. Northern Pacific, Read
ing, Union Pacific, Amalgamated Copper
and Anaconda.
Buying orders were withheld until Un
ion Pacific, . . Amalgamated Copper and
United States Rubber first preferred had
yielded 1, Smelting 1, Great Northern
preferred 1, Canadian Pacific 1, North
western iy and United States . Enri
3. Purchasers were then more attract
ed and the list hardened, Reading and
Union Pacific recovering fully.
Prices dropped slowly back to the low
est and then stiffened again. Quotations
at noon were almost nominal as tha
number of shares transferred was Insig
nificant. Bonds were weak.
Small losses were recorded in spots, but
the general list was unaltered. Reading
was feverish and ruled mostly below
yesterday"s closing. New York Central
fell off to 110. General Electric lost 1.
The only feature of the market outside . '
of the intense dullness was the gradual "
shading of prices of a few of the high '
priced railways, notably Canadian Pa
cific and Northwestern which lost 2 to
Sugnr and Coffee Marlcet.
