Ilajwood Trial Has Been Adjourned
t'ntil Jfext Monday.
Boise, July 6. When court met af
' ter recess in- the Haywood trial Friday
afternoon John Harper was on the
stand. - Mr. Richardson said that he
desired to show by the witness that the
conditions existing throughout the en
tire district, namely, that the enemies
of the Western Federation persistently
endeavored to create enmity against
the federation and so bring about als-turbances.
The court sustained an objection by
the state to this line of evidence from
Harper on the ground that his opinion
was not competent. Harper was cross
examined by Senator Borah. He was
asked only a few questions as to nis
experiences during the troubles fol
lowing the blowing up of the Inde
pendence depot, when he was under
arrest and his store looted.

Mr. Darrow at the conclusion of
Houtton's examination announced that
with the exception of one or two wit
nesses who would not take up much
time, and the reading of the Bradley
depositions from San Francisco and
the testimony of C. H. Moyer and W.
Z. Haywood, the defense was all in.
He asked that an adjournment be tak

agreed and an adjournment was taken
Until Monday morning.
Judge Wood announced that he
would put counsel on both sides in
notice before the arguments as to what
the Instructions of the court would be.
This, he said, he thought would fa

Sixty-Nine Acres.
New York. July 6. Jersey City is to

which has 20 baseball diamonds, 11
cricket fields, and scores of tennis
courts and lawns for various other
The site of the new play ground is
about 69 acres in extent and as level
as a floor. It is now unoccupied land
on the Hackensack Meadows west of
the city and bordering on the Hacken
sack river.
Along the river's edge will be an im
mense swimming pool, recreation piers,

New York, July 6. Alexander Adrehi,
who had his spinal cord severed by a
bullet about four years ago, will soon
be discharged from the city hospital on
Blackwell's Island, entirely well. This
case has attracted the attention of the
medical fraternity, owing to the re
markable success of the operation,
which was performed by the late Dr.
George Ryerson Fowler on May 9,
1903. The ends of the severed cord
were drawn together.
Adrehl was shot in the back during
a street fight in Brooklyn. When he
was taken to the hospital the lower
part of the body was completely para
lyzed. The bullet passed between the
tenth and eleventh vertebrae. They
were both badly shattered.
Less than a month after the opera
tion the patient) was able to move his
toes and the following November he
was able to sit up. Electricity and
massage treatment were then used. Af
ter a while Adrehi was rigged up in a
cage chair, something like that used by
babies when learning to walk. During
the winter of 1905 he began to feel sen
sations in his body below the wound.
Twenty-six months after the Injury he
was able to stand by resting his hands
cn a chair. Adrehi can now walk up
and down stairs without the use of
crutches or braces. This is said to be
the only operation of Its kind to have
resulted successfully.
Railroads of the Country Are Facing
a Serious Problem.
Chicago, July 6. The Record-Herald
today says:
Several thousand young men who are
willing to prepare themselves can have
an opportunity during the next few
months of entering the railway service
in a branch that has produced the
greatest number of higher officials.
The railroads ot the country are face
to face with the task of securing at
least 6,000 telegraph operators and pos
sibly double that number during the
next nine months. I his great army or
new telegraphers Is necessitated by the
new law which limits the hours of la
bor in this branch of the railway service.
There is not a railway management In
the United States that knows where or
how they are going to get the large
additional force needed. The fact is
that they are not In the country and
the problem Is to create a supply.

"It seems to me that the manage

early," said a fan who likes clean

Uast Survivor of Notorious Bandit
Brothers Given Parole.
After a long conference with War
den Haskell of the state penitentiary
on Friday . cfternoon. Governor Hoch
granted a parole for four months to
Emmett Dalton, the noted bandit, to
go to Kansas City and have his arm
It is generally believed that at the
end of the four months, Dalton's pa
role will be extended, and the chances
are that he will never again go be
hind the prison walls.;
Dalton assisted in the raid on the
CofCeyville bank, at the time three of
the outlaws were killed. Emmett was
shot in the arm and captured. The
wound in his arm has given him con
siderable trouble and recently has be
come so serious that the prison doc
tors said there was danger of him be
ing obliged to have the arm amputat
ed. By having an operation or a an
ficult nature performed, it is said the
arm can be saved
Just why it is necessary that Dal
ton should go to Kansas Cltjr to have
the operation. Instead .of bringing the
surgeon to the prison, has not been
explained, , but the probable reason is
that allowing Dalton a temporary pa
role, th public mind will be prepar
ed for a final parole and ultimate re
lease. -
The reason urged for Dalton's abso
lute release from prison is that he was
a very young man at the time of the
Ooffeyville affair, and it is claimed
that ha was led Into the plot by his
older and more desperate brothers.
Willard Lyons Says There's No Crop
Failures There.
Willard Lyons of Lincoln county
was in Topeka today on his way home
from Holton, where he closed a deal
for the sale of a 110,000 farm. Mr.
Lyons is a member of the state text
book commission.
"There is no sign of crop failure in
Lincoln county," said Mr. Lyons, who
is in the real estate and farming busi
ness, and knows thoroughly the condi
tions. "We will raise as much' wheat
In the county as we did last year.
Some fields will run 25 bushels to the
acrst and the average will be 12 bush
els. Prices will be higher than last
year, and the county will have plenty
of money. Corn, too, is looking much
better there than it is down here. We
are going to have a fine corn crop.
Take it all together, the farmers are
feeling good, and everybody is pros
perous. "Our only trouble Is to get enough
men to handle the wheat. It takes
about seven men to - handle a good
sized wheat field. Farmers would take
eight or ten If they could get them.
The wheat this year ripened very
quickly after a wet speell, and the re
sult is that It shatters easily, and the
grains of wheat come out of the hulls.

Captain Charles W. Roshon, who is
at the head of the committee which is
raising funds for the erection 6t a
Salvation army barracks in memory of
Mother Florence, will commence an
active campaign Monday, as it neces
sary to make another payment on the
lots which have been purchased at the
corner of Fifth and Quincy streets.
The building which will cost $15,000
is to be modeled after a similar struc
ture recently completed in Wichita.
About one-tenth of the sum required
has already been raised and 1600 more
has been pledged; $227 of- the $1,500
collected came in last week during the
heat of the campaign for funds for
Washburn -college. "We have given
way to Washburn college in their ef
forts to raise money to secure their
endowment," said Captain Roshon,
"and find that they have swept the
city clean, but we hope to receive lib
eral support from the merchants as
well as the private citizens.
"We do not expect to receive as
large donations as have been made to
.other enterprises, but hope by adding
the littles togetner 10 nave ine iuiiu
in such shape that we can start work
on the building some time this fall so
that the army can have the use of it
this winter. We have another pay

creasing our building fund."
