Haywood, Testifying in His Own Defense, PositiTelyContradicts the Story Told by Harry Orchard. TURXEDOVER TOSTATE His Cross Examination Is Be gun by Senator Borah. He Expects to Finish His Questioning This Afternoon. Boise, Idaho, July 12. Testifying in hia own behalf this morning William I. Haywood denied that he planned. conspired in or desired the murder of former Governor Steunenberg. The prisoner-witness emphasized his declar ation of innocence when in well meas ured words and even tone he said: "I do not believe I ever thought of Steu nenberg after I left Idaho." The direct examination of the de fendant took up the first hour and a half of the morning session. Clarence Darrow led his client carefully over the ground covered by Orchard and every charge that Haywood had any connec tion with Orchard other than what was or tne most innocent character or with any criminal act was denied again and again by the witness in the most posi tive terms. Senator Borah took Haywood in hand for cross-examination for the last hour of the session. The witness changed his position in the witness chair and faced the prosecution table. He gave no sign of nervousness. Leaning back with one arm flung over the back of his chair, after the first question he looked up at Judge Wood and said: "Your honor, may I have the shutter of that window closed, the glare is strong and I can not see the senator's eyes." Haywood gave careful explanations of the working of the Western Federa tion of Miners, its policy and attitude towards employers of labor. At the conclusion of the morning session Senator Borah announced that he would conclude his cross-examination this afternoon. Domnick Flynn Recalled. Domnick Klynn, one of the witnesses In the Haywood trial, was recalled by the state when the case opened this morning. He was asked as to a con versation he had with Daniel Ganey at Mullen, Idaho, in 1899. The questions were evidently for the purpose of im peachment. After Klynn left the stand Haywood was recalled and the direct examination was continued. Haywood said that Orchard had been at his house three or four times. Most, of the members of the union when they were in Denver, called at his home, the witness declared. "Did you ever call on Orchard?" ask ed Mr. Darrow. "No. sir, never." "Did you ever have anything to do with buying a horse and buggy for Or chard to go out on killing expeditions with?" "No, sir. never." Haywood said Orchard came one day to headquarterg in a buggy with a col ored man and said George Pettibone wanted to know if he could trade the rig for a gray mare which the federa tion owned one of the 19 horses which had been used In distributing relief in the Cripple Creek district. Pettibone was anxious to get the mare for one of his delivery wagons. The winess denied severally and posi tively that he had talked to Orchard or planned with him the killing of Sher man Bell, Governor Peabody. James Hearn, David Moflfatt. or Judges God dard or Gabbert. He declared that Or chard's story on the witness stand was the first he had heard of the matter. First Meeting With Adams. Haywood first met Steve Adams in 1902. He said the $75 he sent to Adams at Ogden when the latter wired him in San Francisco, was his. Haywood's, own money. Adams had been out pros pecting and had stated on leaving Den ver that if he struck anything he would locate Haywood on It. During 1904 Steve Adams was at readquarterg several times. He said he had been to the "tali timber." Adams and his wife were both drawing strike relief at this time. "Did you ever give or send him any money other than the JT5 you nave testified to?" "No, sir." "Did you get your $75 back?" "No. sir. At Cripple Creek Adams and Minister who went with him said they would settle up as soon as the strike was over." Adams and his wife left Colorado in the spring of 1905. Haywood said that some time later he received a letter from Mrs. Adams saying she and Steve had located a homestead in Oregon. T-hey expected to do well, but needed a little temporary relief, promising to pay It back in butter and eggs. Thirty dol lars was sent to them. The next he heard of Steve Adams was when the latter was arrested. As to the letter he wrote to Harry Orchard's wife Novem ber IS, 1905, Haywood said his note was In reply to one from Mrs. Orchard in rniring as to her husband's whereabouts. He told her all he knew about Orchard. He had no way of knowing where Or chard was except as the latter had told him his plans for going to Alaska. Hay- wooa said he did not care to tell Mrs. Orchard what her husband had said as to his determination to not return to her. Haywood declared he knew absolutely nothing of the plot against Governor Steunenberg. He Foreot Steunenberg. "I don't know that I had thought of him after I left the state of Idaho." "Had Governor Steunenberg ever at tempted to get back into politics " "No, sir." "Had he shown any disposition to be come active in mining matters? "No, sir." The first Haywood heard of the aias Bination was in the papers which claim ed that the crime was a culmination of the troubles in the Coeur D'Alenes. The papers also reported that a union card had been found in the effects of Thomas Hogan, who had been arrested on suspicion. At miners' headquarters there was con siderable question as to who Hogan was. the consensus of opinion being that it was Orchard, who had used that name In leaving Cripple Creek to seek employ ment elsewhere. The first definite in formation came In the cipher telegram from Simpkins. which was translated at first: "Can I get counsel for Hogan?" but which was afterwards corrected to read, "Can not get counsel for Hogan." Haywood's explanation of sending th $100 draft to Jack Simpkins on Decem ber 21, 1905, was as follows: Tlie Simpkins Draft. "Simpkins came to Denver early In December to attend a meeting of the executive board. He drew $231.50 per diem and traveling expenses while there. Cashing a check for this he gave Hay wood $100 and asked him to forward it to Spokane some time before Christmas. Simpkins said he was going on a trip and did not want to take all the money with him. Haywood said he could not remember whether he bought the draft and mailed It or whether one of the fed eration stenographers attended to the matter. Witness said he had not seen Simpkins since the executive board matter. When the matter of employing counsel for Orchard and to look after the.; interests of the organization first caine up, Haywood said, he and Moyer consulted with General Counsel Mur phy, who advised Moyer going very slowly in the matter. After consid ering the. subject for a day or two. Murphy advised the employment of Mr. Nugent. The defense offered in evidence a letter written by General Counsel Murphy to Attorney Nugent, but it was ruled out by Judge Wood on the ground of immateriality. An. excep tion was noted. Haywood went Into the details of the final employment of Attorney Fred Miller of Spokane, to defend Orchard. At this time Attorney Crump, who had represented the mine owners' association of Colorado in fights against the Western Federa tion of Miners, had been called into the case by the other side. "What was the first you knew of any intention to arrest you in con nection with the murder?" "When I was arrested." Witness then related the story of his arrest, the denial of a right to con sult counsel and the trip to Boise on a special In charge of General Bulke ley Wells, a member of the mine own ers' association. When first brought to Boise the prisoners were taken to tho state penitentiary, being later re moved to the county jail at Caldwell. Indicted for Starting Riot. Haywood said he was indicted for inciting to riot at "Victor following the Independence depot explosion. He was in Denver at the time. The case never came to trial, nolle prosse being entered by District Attorney C. C. Hamlin, who prior to his election had been secretary of the Mine Owners' association. This ended the direct examination and Senator Borah began to cross examine the prisoner-witness. He dwelt upon the Interest the min ers at Silver City, Idaho, took in the Coeur D'Alene troubles. Haywood said a committee was sent from Silver City to northern Idaho at the time. "The Western Federation of Miners came to think of Governor Steunenberg as a pronounced opponent of organized labor?" "I believe bo, yes, sir." "But prior to this trouble he was re garded as a. friend?" "I think so; he was at one time an honorary member of a local union." "The federation afterwards regarded him as a friend of capital and as swayed, by capitalists and I suppose you Joined In this view?" "Yes, sir, as an officer, I did." "Did the miners' magazine reflect your views as well as those of the organiza tion " "Sometimes." "It reflected your views- as -to the Coeur D'Alene?" Ills Opinion of Borah. "In some instances it did. I did not approve of the bull pen, of the permit system, of the indignities upon the men, but as to Governor Steunenberg I did not regard him in any other light than I do you, senator, or Bartlett Sinclair, or any others who were concerned." "I have understood that," replied Senator Borah, who questioned the witness as to the article which ap peared in the Miners' Magazine at the time Governor Steunenberg left the office and entitled "The Passing of Steunenberg," stating that if this epitaph should come to be written it would read "Here lies a hireling and a traitor." "Did the article reflect your views and those of the federation?" "As to the governor's official acts it did," replied Haywood who added that the article was directed against Steunenberg as a state official and not as a. man. "There were many others who felt the same way about Governor Steun enberg," the witness went on. "The lieutenant governor who served under Steunenberg wrote an article which was much stronger than this." The witness was taken through a long line of questions as to Jack Simpkins, developing the fact that whereas Simpkins disappeared more than a year ago, he is still continued as a member of the executive board of the federation. When in Denver in December, 1905, Simpkins said noth ing of having seen Orchard in Cald well. Senator Borah asked Haywood about the posting of certain notices in the Cripple Creek district in 1901. One of these read: "Hence take notice that on and after September 15, 1901, all who work in Cripple Creek who are unable to produce a card of the Western Federation will be re garded as an enemy to himself and to the community at large and will be treated as such." Haywood said in explanation of this that there was a move on foot to reduce wages throughout the district. A second notice called the attention of the min ers to the fact that the 15th of Sep tember was near at hand: that the time of grace had about expired and that all who -were not for the union. must be against it. There could be no middle ground. The Union's Policy. "So." said Senator Borah, "the Western Federation of Miners had a permit system of its own and no one could work where it was in control unless he had a union card?" "No, sir, a man could go to work anywhere without a card, but we ex pected him to Join the union if he wanted any of the benefits which ac crued from membership in it." Haywocd was questioned closely as to his appearance before a committee of the state senate in Denver to argue on the eight hour law. Haywood said he spoke his mind very freely to the representatives of the capitalistic class, who were present, including Frank J. Hearn of the Colorado Fuel & Iron company, and ex-Governor Grant. "I compared the palace in which Gov ernor Grant lived to the huts of some of the smeltermen and I did It so vivid ly that tears rolled down Governor Grant's cheeks and he said he was go ing to leave the state. I told the men NEW POST CARDS Government Contractor Is Pre paring Plates for One Which Will Conform With Order Just Issued. WRITE ON BOTH SIDES. One-Third of Address Surface GiTen to Sender. For Message Either W ritten or Printed. Washington, July 12. For years Americans and others have been send ing to the United States from foreign countries postal cards and post cards, private mailing cards, with messages written on the front as well as on the back of the cards, although In this country this advantage has been de nied the users of government postal cards. Some months ago the United States postal laws and regulations were amended so as to give that privilege to buyers of post cards, but such concession was not made ap plicable to postal cards. In order to remedy this incon sistency and to prevent any further confusion and annoyance to the pub He Postmaster General Myer today promulgated an order effective Au gust 1, 1907, providing that the face side of a postal card may be divided by a vertical line placed approximate ly one third of the distance from the left end of the card, the space to the left of the line to be used for a mes sage, etc., the portion to the right to be used for the address only. A very thin sheet of paper may be attached if it completely adheres to the card and such a paster may bear both writ ing and printing. Advertisements, illustrations, or writing may appear on the back of the card and on the left third of the front. Postal cards bear ing particles of glass, metal, mica, sand, tinsel or other such substances, are declared to be unmailable. except when enclosed In envelopes with proper postage affixed, or when treat ed in such a manner as will prevent the objectionable materials from be ing rubbed off or injuring the hands of persons handling the mails. . The contractor at Rumford Falls, Me., is now putting In new machinery for the manufacture of postal cards, and the department will furnish plates for postal cards of a new design conforming to the conditions of the amended regulations. FOURTEEN CHANGES. Oklahoma Constitution Is Made Over at Adjourned Session. Guthrie, Okla., July 12. Fourteen important changes in the constitution for the proposed state of Oklahoma have been made by the convention. The most important modifies the in itiative and referendum provision by eliminating the section allowing the governor to take means to put into effect any law in the event of the legislature's refusal to act upon it. Another vital change eliminates the plank forbidding foreign corpora tions to appeal from the decision of state courts. Another amendment gives home railroads the right to merga but denies the prerogative to foreign corporations. Other altera tions affect the appropriation, habeas corpus provision, court power of con tempt, religious tolerance, suffrage rights and election of the state board of agriculture. present that It was such influences as thev renresented that corrupted legis latures and courts.

Laplata, Md., July 12. In five min utes after retiring a "Verdict of acquit tal was returned by the Jury in the case of Mrs. Bowie and her son, who were tried for the murder of Hubert Posey. The case was given to the jury at 12:25 p. m. and the court then took a recess. States Attorney Wilmer's statement last evening that the prosecution would be satisfied with". a verdict of manslaughter was a surprise and was met by the demand of former State Senator Posey, for the defense that the jury either acquit, or find the accused guilty of murder. Congressman Sid ney E. Mudd, of counsel for the de fense in his address to the Jury dis claimed belief in the insanity of Mrs. Bowie or her son, though he declared that under the circumstances they should not he held responsible men tally or legally, for having killed Posey when he had refused' to marry Mrs. Bowie's daughter after betraying her. "The family in this land of ours is the nucleus and the nursery of the commonwealth. , The protection of the sanctity of the . family ties, the chastity of women, the development and maintenance of a salutary respect for the honor of the mother, the sister and the daughter becomes, therefore a natural and essential feature of the law In this land. In nearly every state of this country there will be found an exemplification and recognition' of this act and an adoption of this doc trine. It is in this sense that I con fidently claim the protection of what I have called the 'unwritten- law' as an adequate defense for these . defen dants." " DEWEY IS TURNED DOWN Application: for Change of Venue In Murder Cases Denied. Goodland, Kan., July 12. udge Charles Smith of Stockton, presiding in the dis trict court here Thunrsday ruled that Chauncy Dewey could secure a fair trial in Sherman county. In other words, he denied the applica tion of Dewey for a change of venue. Dewey's petition alleged that a feeling of prejudice still existed against him so strongly among the old settlers that In the forthcoming trial a fair jury could not be secured. Judge Smith held that enough new settlers had moved in since the fight of four years ago to try the case. Dewey's attorneys say they will secure affidavits to show their contention is right. The suit Is one of $40,000 damages brought by relatives of the murdered men in the big Dewey ranch fight. SIX STORIES HIGH. Bank of Topeka Building Will Be Taller Than Planned. The plans for the remodeling of the Bank of Topeka building, corner of Sixth and Kansas avenues, have been changed and the building when comple ted will be six stories in height in stead of five as was originally contem plated. It was the intention to utilize the south wall of the present building but this has been found to be impracti cal and It will be torn out and a wall built to conform with the architectural design of the remainder of the building. When it was found that the south wall could not be used it was decided to add another story to each of the buildings that are now being remodel ed. The top story will be used for of fices when completed as will all of the building excepting the first floor which will be utilized by the bank. Japanese War Situation Is Made to Look HELD UP A TRAIN. Four Negroes Signaled It to Stop and Got Aboard. Engineer Threw Open the Throttle and Kan Into Town. THEY FEARED TO JUMP Until the Train Had Slowed Up In the Yards. Policemen in an Auto Captured the Whole Bunch. New York, July 12. A daring attempt to hold up and rob a freight train on the Pennsylvania railway at Railway, N. J., was frustrated by Engineer Wil liam B. Lawrence. The robbers, four negroes, were captured after an auto mobile chase. The freight train was approaching Kahway when the engineer saw a sig nal to stop. When he did so he was surprised to see four negroes Jump from behind a clump of bushes and climb on board. One of the men boarded the en gine while the other three got on the train. The negro on the engine ordered that one car be uncoupled from the train and left behind to be ransacked by them. He threatened that there would be trouble If the order was not complied with. . Realizing that a fast express train would be along in a few minutes, the engineer grasped the throttle and set the train going at full speed, while the negro looked on in amazement. Twice the men endeavored to jump from the train, but fear of being dashed to death prevented them and they hung on until the train reached the freight yards of the company at Waverly, twelve miles away. There the men fled into the coun try, but policemen who were notified pressed an automobile into service and the negroes were soon overtaken and arrested. , NEW PLAN OF CONTROL It Is Suggested That Uncle Sam Be come Stockholder In Railroads. Chicago, July 12. A dispatch to the Tribune from Washington says; An entirely new and extremely radi cal proposition for control of the rail roads has been advanced for the con' sideration of President Roosevelt. It Involves partial government ownership of transportation lines by actual pur chase of stock. The suggestion has been made in a semi-official way, but whether Presi dent Roosevelt would adopt the scheme which is so nearly socialistic in its de velopment, may well be doubted. It has been stated, however, that he is act ually considering such a recommenda tion and that it Is part of the proposi tlon to bring the railways to time by securing receivers for them. The two schemes fit . into each other perfectly. It would be practically impossible for the government to secure the appoint ment of receivers or control in any way receivers alter tney were appointed, unless it- had a monetary interest in the railroad. If It owned stock, no matter how small an amount, it would have a. standing in court, the same as the largest creditor of the road. The idea of the purchasing of stock is a practical one, but it is undeniably government ownership on a small scale, and inevitably would result in actual ownership in the long run. The theory of those who have advanced this scheme for the consideration of Presi dent Roosevelt Is that by a compara tively small investment in the stock there might be a small measure of government ownership, but without any government control so tar as the run ning of the road is concerned. ONE FROM KANSAS. Examination of Applicants for Con sular Service Is in Progress. Washington.- July 12. The examina tion of applicants for appointment In the consular service which has been in progress at the state department for the past three days will be concluded today, but the names of those success ful will not be announced for several weeks. Only 48 of the 52 candidates designated by Secretary Root presented themselves for examination at the state department. Two each came from New Mexico and Texas, one from Kansas, the others being from east of the Mis sissippi river. Two of the applicants are negroes. So Serious. ENGINE PULLS IP THE TREES. Steam Grader Used to Uproot Large Cot ton woods in North Topeka. ' The steam grader engine that was ta ken over to North Topeka the other day is at present being used for the purpose of pulling up the large trees that are in the way of the street grad ing. The shade trees that have lined Kansas avenue on the north side have to be taken out. Instead of choriping the tree down first and then pulling up the stumps, the -men in charge are going at it In a more effective way. They pull the whole tree up by the roots. The roots of the tree are chopped off around the outside of the tree so as to keep it from tearing up too much of the ground. Then a man climbs it with a small rope and by means of it he draws up a large-chain. The chain Is attached to the trunk of the tree about 20 feet from the ground, and after the climber is out of the way the work begins. The engine pulls the tree over and after the remaining roots have been put off it hauls it off to some vacant lot where it can be cured for fire wood. Some of the trees pulled up are three feet in diameter, and of great height. The work is attracting much attention and large crowds of people are watching it from beyond the danger line. AS AMENDED. Changes Made In the Constitution of Oklahoma. Guthrie, Okla., July 12. The constitu tional convention this morning struck out section three of article 3, restricting the suffrage of members of the regular army and navy and adopted this sub stitute: "For the purpose of voting, no mem ber of the regular army or navy of the United States shall gain a residence in this state by reason of being stationed In this state, nor shall any such person lose his residence in the state when ab sent on military or naval business from this state." " The section prohibiting firms, corpora tions, etc.,' from selling commodities at a lower rate in one portion of the state than in another was modified by permit ting the legislature to enact a different law and further conditions were imposed making more difficult the proof that the difference in prices was for the pur pose of destroying competition in trade. The section originally was aimed at the Standard Oil company. Justice of the peace courts were de prived of concurrent Jurisdiction with district courts. As the section stood it was believed that the justice of the peace could grant divorces. Section 8 of article 23 was changed to read, "Any provisions of a contract, ex pressed or implied, made by any person by which any of the benefits of this constitution is sought to be waived shall be null and void. The words, "or of any law made in ac cordance therewith," were stricken out after the word "Constitution." Section 6 of the schedule was amended to make woman eligible for election to the position of county superintendent of schools. This section was added to tne schedule: "The terms of all officers of the state government elected at the time of the adoption of this constitution shall begin upon the admission of the state into the union; BACK TO OLD WAY. National Council of N. E. A. Deals a Blow at Reformed Spelling. Los Angeles, July 12. Among the im portant things upon which the national council of the National Educational as sociation has taken action is the author izing of the appointment of a committee of five with William T. Harris of Wash ington, D. C, as Its chairman, to work for an international association of ed ucational workers to promote education and consider the problems confront ing it, and the appropriation of money for the use of a committee in investi gating the shortage of teachers and for the establishment of a national federal university at Washington, D. C, and the ascertaining of the best way of "teaching morals in the public schools." The board of directors took a back ward step in the simplified spelling re form by voting to resume the spelling of the words through and through in the standard style. It also re-elected H. B. Brown, president of Valparaiso uni versity, Valpariaso. Indiana, a mem ber of the board of trustees, and W. T. Harris of Washington, D. C, a member of the executive committee, created a new department for the benefit of the seven leading woman's organizations In the country who desired affiliation with the association, voted for Cleveland as the place for holding the next conven tion in 1908, and took favorable action upon national university and other pro jects, favored by the national council. DODGFSTATE COURTS. Nebraska Railroads Seek to Get Case Before Federal Judges. Lincoln, Neb.. July 12. Before Judges W. H. Munger and T. C. Mun-e-er of the federal court, attorneys for the railroads this morning sought to have the cases filed by the state or Nebraska to compel observance of anti-railway legislation removed from the state to the federal courts, vvnetn er or not the state is a real party at interetl when attempting to enforce its own laws In its own courts was de bated. Judge W. D. McHugh, of Omaha, representing the Union Pa cific, and Attorney General Thomp son aopearlng for the state. The case is similar to the Missouri suit. In tne Nebraska case the state acted first, the railways asking for re moval of the suit. The state sought Injunctions to prevent the Union Pa cific, the Burlington. Missouri Pacific and the Rock Island from disregard ing the two cent fare law, the maxi mum freight rate law. the antipass and railway combination acts passed by the last legislature. The railroad attorneys insisted that the state was not a real party to the suit as it had no pecuniary interest In the matter. The attorney general quoted from Justice Brewer's opinion in the Debs case seeking to show that "to prevent the wrong doing of one resulting in injuring the general welfare is often sufficient to give It a standing in court." WHAT ACHAflGE. Few State Officers Take Long Trips Now. Of Course Anti Pass Law Isn't Responsible. HAVEN'T TIME TO GO. Press of State Affairs Keeps Them Near Home. Excelsior Springs Has Become Favorite Resort. Excelsior Springs Is going to be a wonderfully popular place this year as a summer resort for state officers. Nearly all state officers who feel the need of rest from their arduous duties will go to Excelsior Springs to get It. As a corollary to this proposition, it may be announced with equal certainty that there will not be as many long va cation trips made this year as usual by state officers. The abolition of the in terstate free railroad pass is responsi ble. Heretofore, it has been the regular thing for every state officer to take a summer Jaunt to California, Florida, or New York. Some of them nave put in, a few months fishing In Canadian wa ters, and others have fished in the gulf off Galveston, or struggled with the massive tuna in southern California waters. But a long excursion was the regular thing. It was as cheap to travel as It was to stay at home. This year some of the state officers took a trip to League Island and other eastern points to witness the presenta tion of the silver service to the battle ship Kansas. -The state paid $1,000 toward the expenses of the party, and most of the excursionists got oft with comparatively small additional personal expense. Hence the disposition among the passless officials is to allow tnis state excursion to answer the purpose of a summer vacation. . State Superintendent E. T, Fairchild, who didn't go on this excursion, is now in Los Angeles to attend the meeting of the National Educational association. This is a trip of which the expense Is paid by the state. . Governor Hoch will be so busy travel ing about filling Chautauqua - lecture dates that he will not find time for any pure and unadulterated recreation. He will get plenty of traveling, but it will all be on business. , Secretary of State Denton says he can't afford to take ;any more vaca-. tion than' he has had already, except for an occasional trip to his home in, Attica, which will be largely of a busi ness nature. Attorney General Jackson, State Auditor Nation, and State Treasurer Tulley will all stay- pretty closely in Topeka, aside from short trips to various points in the state. It is still posible for state officers to get trans portation Inside of Kansas. Charles Barnes, superintendent of . insurance, who was not included in the battleship excursion, says he hasn't time to take a vacation trip. His newspaper and his official duties keep him busy. John Q. Royce, state bank commissioner,- goes up to his home in Phil lipsburg at frequent intervals, but he has no plans for any vacation expedi tions. F. D. Coburn, secretary of agricul ture, who has some original ideas about vacations, and who takes very few of them except when his health absolutely demands It, is now absent from town, and is supposed to be at Excelsior Springs. That is where he usually goes. Mr. Coburn never tells much about where he is going when he starts off to take a rest. The supreme court Justices, too. have very modest tastes about sum mer vacations this year. Justice Henry F. Mason is about the only one who has thus far announced any ex tended trip. He has gone to Wlscon son. Justice Clark Smith will spend the summer at Cawker City, and Jus tice Graves at Emporia. Justices Porter and Burch will "recreate" at Excelsior Springs, and Chief Justice Johnston will do the same. And all because of the passing' of the pass! HIGHEST COURTESY.
