TWO CENTS JiL HI S KIDNAPING STORY Haywood Defense Presents It in a Different Light From That in Which It Was Placed by Harry Orchard. TWO WOMEN TESTIFY Regarding the Looting of Stores Owned by the Union. Court Adjourns Until 10 O'clock Friday Morning. Boise, July 4. David C. Coates, for mer lieutenant governor of Colorado, formerly a newspaper man of Wallace, Idaho, was the first witness at the Wed nesday afternoon session of court in the1 Haywood trial. Mr. Coates is the man Orchard said suggested the kidnaping of one of the Paulson children in Wal lace, Paulson being a former partner of Orchard in the Hercules mine. Examined by Attorney Darrow Coates said he had been a newspaper man practicaly all of his life. He has set type, reported and published his own paper. He once was a member of the International Typographical union but never was ,in any way connected with the Western Federation of Miners. The witness was lieutenant governor of Colo rado under Governor James B. Orme. He knew Haywood. Mover and Petti- bone in Denver and met Orchard under the name of Thomas Hogan in Petti bone's store the day the witness was leaving to make his home in Wallace. "I was In a hurry when I met Hogan," Paid Coates, "and he walked down the street with me, saying he had once lived near Wallace in the Coeur D'Alenes. He raid he once held an interest in the Hercules mine and that August Paulson was one of his partners. He said he was known in the Coeur D'Alenes as Harry Orchard and asked me to give Paulson his regards and tell him he was coming to seo him soon. 'v"The next time I saw Orchard was six weeks after I arrived in Wallace. He met me at the bank and said he had come up to see some of his old friends. Two or three days later he came to my office and began to talk about look ing for some easy money. He said he thought he might get some by stealing pome of Paulson's children. I don't know that I made any reply to him at all for I didn't think he could be In earnest. Called Orchard a Fool. "Some days later Orchard came in again. He said he had been up to Paul son's house to dinner and had played with the children. He again spoke of kidnaping one of them and wanted to know if he could have the money left with Tne. I said to him, 'Orchard you are a fool and I would be a bigger fool to go in with you in any such crime. If you try to do anything like that around here I'll denounce you.' He said: 'Oh, you needn't get so excited about it,' and went out. I thought at first he was serious, but the way he laughed and told me not to get excited, made me think that perhaps he wasn't after all." "Didn't you ever suggest to Orchard In Denver or anywhere else the kidnap ing of one of the Paulson children or any other child?" asked Mr. Darrow. "No, sir. I- did not. There couldn't be anything more repulsive to me than that." "You have a family?" "Yes, sir, I have a young daughter." Coates said he saw Orchard several times before the man left Wallace in the fall of 1905. Orchard told him that the more he saw of his old friends and partners the more bitter he be came over having to leave the district. He said he would "get even" with Steunenberg. 1 told him that the old feeling of 1905 had about died out and he ought not to think about it; that there were plenty of other opportuni ties in the Coeur D'Alenes. Witness next told of Orchard having borrowed $300 from August Paulson before leaving Wallace. Cross examined by Senator Borah witness said he first met Pettibone, Mover and Haywood some time prior to his nomination as lieutenant gover nor. They had been close friends forj a long time. we was at one time president, of the Colorado Federation of Labor and this had put him in close touch with tho Western Federation of Miners. "You've visited the headquarters of the Western Federation of Miners?" "Many a time." "When you met Orchard at Petti bone's store you were returning from Chicago, I think?" "Yes. sir. I was returning from a convention of Industrial Workers of the World." "Haywood attended that conven tion?" "Yes. sir " Slmpklns Often Called. Coatdf said Jack Simpkins was In Wallace while Orchard was there but he could not rememDer ever naving Been them together, bimpkins often called at his office. The witness said he never said any thing to Paulson regarding Orchard's talk of stealing the child. "Did you say to Deputy Sheriff Ras Reamer on the streets of Boise at the time of Orchard's cross examination that If Orchard had mentioned to you the kidnaping of Paulson's children he never would have had a chance to kill Steunenberg?" asked Senator Borah. "There were several of us on the street one night Mr. Darrow was in the party when I said that if Orchard had attempted to kidnap any of those children he never would have got out of the country and never would have had a chance to kill Steunenberg." Mrs. Nellie E. Boyce, of Denver, Col., who was formerly housekeeper at the boarding house of the Florence & Crip ple Creek railroad at Cilpple Creek, tes tified to seeing Harry Orchard at the boarding house on the night of the sec ond attempt to wreck a train. He was accompanied, she said, by D. C. Scott and K. C Sterling, detectives for the railroad and the mine owners. Mrs. Margaret Hooton, of Anaconda, Col., who distributed relief to the fami lies of deported Cripple Creek miners, was called to tell of being arrested twice and warned not to continue to as sist the families under penalty of be ing deported herself. She continued io distribute relief, .however, and was not Jnorted. Mrs. Hooton also told of the looting of the Anaconda Union store. There was no cross-examination. Miss Annie Sanders followed Mrs, Hooton and told of witnessing the loot ing of the union store in Bennett ave nue. Cripple Creek in August, 1904. Henry Maki. of Silver City. Idaho, re lated on the stand his experience in the Telluride district during the strike. Maki's English was so broken he could scarcely be understood at times. He said one day when under arrest without any charge he refused to do some loathsome work and was fastened to a telegraph pole, his arms being around the pole and handcuffed on the other side. All the time he was under ar rest Makl said he had more than $300 in his pocket. With the conclusion of Maki's testi mony adjournment was taken until 10 o clock Friday morning. . , RIOT AT JAMESTOWN.

Cleveland New York and Boston have been en deavoring to serve upon John D. Rocke feller, head of the Standard Oil com pany, a subpoena issued by Judge Lan dis of the federal court of Chicaeo. Mr. Rockefeller was located in this city and personal service made upon him by Deputy U. S. Marshal Charles L. X rink, of North Adams. After accepting service Mr. Rockefel ler explained that he had not been en deavoring to dodge service, but that he did not know exactly what was wanted or him. . . . Early in the day Demitv Marshals Frink and James Ruhl, the latter of tne lioston office, visited Taconic farm, but E. Parmalee Prentice told them that his father-in-law was not there. The officers professed to be satisfied with the statement and departed, re- marKing tnat tney naa no search war rant which would permit them to go tnrougn tne nouse. Deputy Ruhl boarded the train for Boston and Deputy Frink went to his home In North Adams, about 25 miles from this city. Later Deputy Frink decided to pay another visit to the farm and he returned to Pittsfield and se cretly drove out there in the afternoon. He proceeded through the wooded driveway into the open space in front of the house and recognized Rockefel ler sitting on the piazza. The deputy passed the subpoena to the oil man. ex plaining at the same time that Mr. Rockefeller s presence In the federal court at Chicago on July 6 was needed. Mr. Rockefeller accepted service with a smile, shook hands with the deputy and expressed pleasure at meeting him. Chats With the Officer. He invited the officer to sit on the piazza and rest, which invitation was accepted. Mr. Rockefeller chatted for a few moments, saying that he had not intended to evade the officers, but that he did not know exactly what was de sired of him. He referred to the newspaper stories that have been printed about him re cently and ridiculed the idea that he had been wirrounded by armed g UBTds or that the Taconic farm estate had been equipped with a searchlight. As the officer was leaving the house Mr. Rockefeller again shook hands with him, said he was glad to have met him and added: "If you are over near my home I hope you will come and call on me." It Is thought that Mr. Rockefeller was advised after the morning call of the officers that he had better accept service. It is generally believed that Mr. Rockefeller has been at the farm for a week past. In reply to questions re garding Mr. Rockefeller's presence at Taconic farm, Mr. Prentice on Saturday said Mr. Rockefeller was not there and offered a reward of $50,000 to any one v. ho could prove that his father-in-law was in Pittsfield.

Squires and Barns Slated for a 45 Round Contest. To Battle for the Heayyweight Championship at Colma. JEFFRIES TO REFEREE The Australian Pugilist a Slight King Favorite. Weighs a Trifle Most and Has the Longest Beach. San Francisco, July 4. One of the principal events in the sporting world this year, the 45 round glove contest be tween BUI Squires, the Australian champion, and Tommy Burns, of Amer ica, for the heavyweight championship of the world, a percentage of the gate receipts and a side bet of $5,000, will take place this afternoon at Colma. The fight is one of the most important events in pugilistic circles since James J. Jeffries, the undefeated heavyweight champion, who will referee the contest. Squires, the Australian. Yet Untried In This Country. abdicated, and has aroused internation al interest in sportdom. What adds in terest to the fight is the appearance in the arena of Jeffries as referee and his declaration last night that he will re enter the ring and fight the Australian, Squires, if victor today. The large arena, having a seating capacity of over 8,000 has been completed and ev erything is in readiness for the men to enter the ring at 2 o'clock this after noon. The advance sale Is in the neighbor hood of $12,000. Promoter James Cof froth gave out a statement last night to the effect that he expected, a $22,000 house. This is based on the expectation that 7.000 people -will attend the con tent. Betting on the fight last night veered from 10 to 7, at which it has stood for sometime, to 10 to 9. This was caused by the appearance of con- lderable Burns money, little of which has heretofore been In sight. A num ber of bets were registered at this fig ure and the-prediction was made that when . the men . entered the ring the betting would be at even. This, how ever, is believed to be somewhat over drawn and the Antipodean will doubt less1 step into the ring a favorite, Squires, it is stated, will have an un derstanding with the referee, Jeffries, in the ring today that no one will have the right to toss ! the sponge for him. He raid that he never has and never will give any one the right to signal defeat on his behalf. Both men are in excellent condition. Squires will enter the ring at 182 pounds and Burns at 179, Besides three pounds in weight, the Australian has the advantage of . three and a half inches in height and half an inch In reach over the Canadian. It was announced last night by Burns, that Prof. Lewis would be his chief second and that Jimmy Burns and George Brown, his sparring partner, will be in the corner with him. Barney Rey nolds will be the chief second for Squires .and will be assisted by Tim McGrath, Eddie Hanlon.Martin Murphy and Jim Russell. Tommy ' a Mighty Hard Man to Beat. The impression prevails that Burns will let Squires do the forcing for the first eight or ten rounds In the expecta tion that the Australian will tire him self out. Jeffries finally prevailed upon Burns yesterday not to wear his pneu matic belt attachment which has been the source of troubled argument be fore. "I look for a good hard fight," said Jeffries last night. "I don't see why Squires Is so much a favorite as he is an unknown quantity. Burns Is a bet ter man than the Pacific coast fight fans think. If Squires wins, if the pub lic demands .it and there is enough money in sight, I'll fight him." "I haven't fully decided on my style of fighting," said Burns. "I always se lect my fighting method after I have measured my man.' I never felt more sure of winning in my life." "I don't expect the fight to go over 15 rounds," was Squires' statement. "I am in perfect condition and the fight will be on the square." The preliminaries preceding the main event will commence at 1 o'clock. Many sporting men from Los Angeles, the Nevada goldflelds and other points ar rived last night and this morning. ONE HOUSE LEFT. That Is All That Bemains of Oakdale, Wis. Two Known to Have Been Killed and One Injured. -LaCrosse, Wis., July 4. Reports from the district east of LaCrosse which was swept by a tornado last night," show at least two persons to have been killed and one fatally injured at Oakdale and that the damage was much greater than first reported. The dead are Mr. and Mrs. John Dame of Oakdale. Mrs. Wil liam Butterfield, of the same place is fatally Injured. The storm was most severe In the vicinity of Oakdale on the Milwaukee road and Warren's Mill and Millstone, on the Omaha railway. Oakdale with a population of 600 was almost swept away, only one building, thes tation. of the St. Paul railway be ing left standing. Every building in the village and for some distance north and south was either torn down or damaged and a number of persons In addition to those above mentioned are reported to be seriously injured. The full effect of the storm was felt first at Millstone. Traveling south It struck Warrens Mills where buildings were torn down and a number of peo ple hurt. The crops were completely ruined and farm buildings torn down In a line across the country to Oak dale, where the whole town was torn to pieces. Continuing south from Oakdale a strip of country south and east of Tomah was laid bare by the storm. Rescuing and searching parties were sent out from Tomah, Black River Falls, Camp Douglas and other towns in the vicinity of the path of the tor nado, but the number of casualties has not been reported from all sec tions, wires being down and communi cation being possible only by train. All wires are dow neast of Tomah in many places poles being snapped off close to the ground.

Picki UP TO THE ROADS Interstate Commerce Commis sion Makes an Explanation. Not Besponsible for the Harvest Hand Order. DO AS THEY PLEASE. Railways Can Haul Many or Few as Like. Order - to Establish Freight Terminals Is Issued. In a long telegram to Governor E. W. Hoch, E. E. Clark, one of the members of the interstate commerce commission, declares that the commission is not re sponsible for the refusal of the rail roads to haul parties of less than 15 men to the Kansas harvest fields from Chicago and Mississippi river points. Commissioner Clark lays the blame squarely on the railroad companies, and says that the railroads can haul as many or as few as they desire. The difficulty in getting harvest hands into the state is therefore due, accord ing to Mr. Clark, to the voluntary act of the railroad companies. Commission er Clark says that the interstate com merce commission merely suggested to the railroads that the rate be given to parties of ten, and the railroads raised the bid to 15, and put in the rate. The Santa Fe, Rock Island and Union Pacific have now agreed to make the cent a mile rate from Kansas City and other Missouri river points for parties of five, but according to Governor Hoch, this does not help much. There are not enough men to be had at these Missouri river points to fill the needs of the state. Meantime the various localities where hands are needed are finding that about the only way they can get help Is to send a representative to Kansas City, or some other distributing point, and gather up a bunch of men for the spec ial locality where needed. The reason the state free employment agency seems to bo unable to supply the demands la that it can't see to it that men are sent to the locality where most needed. Har vest hands prefer to patronize the pil vate employment agents, who seem to have- facilities to assuring the men of specific employment at some definite point. The state board of railroad commis sioners on Wednesday afternoon issued the "freight terminal" order to the railroad companies, requiring each company to establish terminal facili ties at Kansas City, Kan. This order is Issued in accordance with the law enacted at the last session of the leg islature. This law said: "Authority Is here by given to the board of railroad com missioners of the state of Kansas, and it ia hereby made the duty of said board immediately Upon the taking ef fect of this act, to order and designate such cities or places in Kansas as freight terminal points as may, in the Judgment of the board, be proper and convenient therefor." The law took effect on publication in the official state paper on March 2. The order of the board was Issued on July 3. Just four months after. Tho board of railroad commissioners, how ever, consider that this complied with, the requirement that the order be is sued "immediately." The order of the board Is as follows, insofar as it relates to the establish ment of rate schedules and terminal facilities: , "The board finds that the freight traffic conditions prevailing in the state ofv Kansas warrant the establishment of Kansas City, Kan., and Argentine, Kan., as freight terminal points within the meaning of the above entitled act and the publication of freight terminal rates on classes and commodities mov ing between stations in Kansas and Kansas City, Kan., and Argentine, Kan "It is therefore ordered by the board that Kansas City, Kan., ana Argen tine Kan., be and they are hereby de signated as freight terminal points within the meaning of tne above en titled act. It Is further ordered by tne Doaru that the respondents, the Atchison. Toneka & Santa Fe Railway company. the Missouri Pacific Railway company. the Chicaeo Rock Island & -acinc Railway company and the Union Pa cific Railroad company, within thirty davs from the date hereor punnsn and make effective freight terminal rates between stations in Kansas on the lines of such respective companies to Kansas City. Kan., or Argentine. Kan., as their respective lines may run. "It is further ordered by the board that the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway company, the Missouri Pacific Railway company, the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railroad company, within 90 days from the date hereof construct and maintain proper freight depots and freight terminal facilities upon their respective lines within . Kansas City. Kan., and Argentine. Kan., as their lines may run. sufficient to accommodate the needs of the ship pers on their respective lines and that thev accept consignments and bill any freight offered by shippers on their re spective lines to such freight terminals at Kansas City, Kan., or Argentine.
