Steamer Docks at Astoiia Crowded With Watchers. Anxiously Awaiting Arrixal of the Geo. W. Elder. MAXY ARE 3IADE GLAD Others Disappointed by Sot '.. Seeing Their tost Ones. The Steamer ' Crew Saw Bafts or Life Boats. No Astoria, Ore., July 24. All night long an eager throng awaited on the dock for the arrival of the steamer George W. Elder, which had on board many of the t-urvivors of the illfated Columbia, which was sunk in a col lision with the steamer schooner San Pedro near Shelter Cove, Cal., early Sunday morning. Hundreds of peo ple, relatives, friends of the survivors, came from Portland and various coast towns in Oregon and Washington to greet their loved ones. Patiently they waited on the docks throughout the night, huddled in groups, their faces illumined with happiness and chatting happily of the reunion of the morrow. The scene, however, was not with out its sorrow. Here and there an expectant wife, a loving father, a brother or a sister, hoping against hope, sat huddled and disconsolate. They were waiting news of the miss ing, perhaps of the dead. It was the presence of the bereaved that held the throngs in check and here and there some man or woman more thoughtful of the rest, endeavored to console the poor folk whose eyes scanned the sea so anxiously for a glimpse of the Elder. At last the lookout at Ham mond telephoned in that the Elder was off the bar and at 4:45 o'clock another message came that the Elder was almost Inside. A great cheer greeted the news and the watchers began to pace up and down the pier, . ... 1.- . . .1 1 V.

Hundreds of people from all parts of the city were add"d to the expectant crowds. Long before the Elder was within earshot people on the docks began a fusillade of questions, but It was useless. Excitement Grew. It was not long, however, before the people on the dock recognized or ... thought they could recognize their loved ones and the excitement grew more I tense ana aamanstrative, The scene on the Elder was perhaps more animated. Crowds of eager people were garnered on the decks and a long row of happy faces shown over th the rail. Hats were waved and the cheers of the rescued mingled with those of the watchers on shore. Shouts of greeting went back and forth, as the Elder came to her dock and cries of "How are 3'ou?" "Are you all right?" and punctured now and then with the cry of a mother or father ap appealing for news of loved ones. There were pitiful scenes when it was learned that the Elder had picked up none of the Columbia's life boats or rafts. All hope had departed for some and they slipped away from the merrymakers to hide their sorrow as best they might. It was only too true the Elder had not sighted any of the missing rafts or boats and had picked up none of the victims after leaving Eureka. As the gang plank of the Elder was swung out upon the dock there was a mad rush to get on board the vessel, but Captain Jessen. reluctant as he was to restrain the union of his passengers and friends and relatives on ehore. was obliged to maintain discipline. When all was ready, the survivors were per mitted to go ashore. An Odd Looking Crowd. It was a curious crowd that thronged down the gang plank. Attired in all sorts of misfit garments, the passengers presented an odd apearance. There were some who had fitted out In Eureka, but It was not difficult to recognize the sui vlvors of the Columbia disaster. The scene upon the dock was almost beyond words. Everp possible demonstration of joy was spent and the hugging and kiss ing continued for many minutes. Some few were overcome by the excitement of the meeting and some women fainted but were soon revived. Some of the descued were carried off their feet by friends. They were taken care of by others and made welcome by the good people of Astoria. Flowers were dis tributed and hot coffee and other good things were there for those who needed them.

Still Waiting Anxiously Word of Daughters. for 31 AY YET BE SATED. Older Girl Known to Be Espec ially Resourceful. Late Telegrams Relate Only to Presence on Boat. The family and friends of Cora and Sarah Shull. daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Ellas Shull of 1421 West Sixth avenue, who were on the 111 fated Columbia. which went down off the coast of Cal ifornia Saturday at midnight have about given up hope that they may be among the unidentified rescued. Th"lr names were Included on the ship's list of passengers and several telegrams have been received from friends advis ing the parents that their daughters were Included among the passengers. The first accounts received in this city through the newspapers stated that a raft and two boats loaded with pas sengers from the wrecked bjit were unaccounted for. Later reports, how ever, fail to confirm this story and hepes that they may be amonp the pas sengers saved have all bat been aban doned. At the home in this citv the srloom deepens as the hours pass and no re port of the missing dauthteis is re ceived. "The suspense is something aw ful," said one of the neighbors who. with others have gathered to coriEole the aged father and mother, "and while we are hoping against hope it seems tnat tt is useless. 'There are a number of reasons which have led us to feel that the girls may be among those saved. Sarah was a wonderfully resourceful girl and she would escape and tak3 her sister with her when many another woman would lose her presence of mli.d. We had hoped that they were on the opposite side of the boat from where the col lision occurred and feel that if such was the case that there is yet hope that they are saved and landed in some Iso lated place where thiey have not been able to communicate with us." The father, Elias Shull. was for a time buoyed up by this knowledge and hope but has . about concluded that the hope is a vain one and that the girls must be numbered among those lost. There is one chance among a thousand that they have been saved," he said this afternoon, "and all that we have left is that hepe. I have wired my son John, who was with a surveying party at Holly, Col., and he has gone directly to i San Francisco, and w hope to hear from him sometime tomorrow. "I feel that If the girls were among those saved that we would have heard from them before this time, unless they have been landed at some point where communication is impossible. This is the only hope that we have left and It is a slender one." Cora Shull who is 24 years of age and employed as a stenographer by the board of control at the state house accompanied by her sister, Sarah who is three years older and employed in a similar capacity by the Aetna In surance company, left Topeka on the 3rd of July for Los Angeles to attend the National Educational meeting. It was their intention to then make a trip to Portland and return by way of San Francisco and it was wnue tney were on this part of the trip that the accident which undoubtedly cost them their lives occurred. The Shull family is one of the old est in the city, Mr. Shull having been a resident of Topeka sincce 1869. Both of the daughters were born in Topeka, where they have a wide cir cle of acquaintances, having graduat ed from the city high school and held stenographic positions since then. S. E. Barber, the state representative of -the Aetna Insurance company In whose office Sarah was employed, wire the local manager of the Aetna company in San Francisco and asked him to make every effort to locate the missing girls. A telegram was received by Mr. Barber this morning confirming the story that the girls were passengers on the wrecked boat and further con firming the belief that they are among those who perished. The telegram read: "Girls were among passengers of wrecked boat. It was reported that boats and a raft left side of sinking .:" .... "- - Sarali and Cora S JnilL the Two Topeka Girls.

Rock Island The Rock Island Carmen's strike -has reached Topeka aid" 'seventeen ' men In the loal yards areout as a result. This number includes the total number of employes of the car repairing and clean ing department in Topeka. The employes of the department here are largely com posed of car cleaners who are charged with the duty of cleaning the cars and putting water and ice in- as they stop here. This part of the work is an abso lute necessity and yesterday it was nec essary to draft some of the clerks in this work. A traveling engineer, and clerks of the trainmaster's and general superintendent's office were compelled to roll up their sleeves and put ice and water in the cars., This sort of labor for the clerks however was short lived &s orders were received this morning to entrust this work to the section em ployes. All the car men in Topeka belong to the Carmen's union and their walking out yesterday afternoon was in a sym pathetic strike with the union at Silvis, 111., where the men walked out without notice after a single employe had been discharged. . '. At the office of the general superin tendent this morning information was given out to the effect that over five hundred car employes on the southwest district which extends from Davenport, la., to Tucumcari, N. M. were out. As far as is known here the strike will not terminate soon. A.II the business con nected with the strike is being conduct ed at Chicago and the local offices have received no advice as to what would be done in regard to the matter. Most of the employes on the Southwest district who are out are anxious to get back to work and were reluctant about quitting, being persuaded to do so only through their loyalty to their union. There is no violence of any sort connected with the strike and everything is very quiet. ""The strike comes at a very bad tim for the Rock Island," said General Suoerlntendent Ai E. Sweet this morn ing. "The rush In transportation is be ginning again and like all other roads we have not any more cars than we need to handle the traffic although we are much better fixed than we were last season. As soon as a car gets out of repair now we will have to lose the ser vice of the car as there will be. no way of getting the cars repaired. Although we have received but little advice from Chicago it la known that efforts are be ing made towards a settlement and It is hoped that the men wljl be back at work within a snort time, in me mean time the shone as far as the car -repair era over the system are concerned -will be shut down."".: - Horton. Kan.. July 24.-4-One hundred and twenty-nine men emploved in the car department of the Rock Island shops here are out a a result of, the Rock Island strike. These men are all mem bers of the Carmen's union No. 87 which hq a membershlD of one hundred and forty. ' The men walked out -last night Under general orders from the headquar ters of the union and win not return to work until the differences between the union and Rock Island officials are sot tied. This strike has resulted in the closing of most of the shops here. Ev erything is quiet and there is no violence. WIFE EOT BRIBE MONEY. Mrs. Lonergan Says Her Husband Gave Her $4,C00. San Francisco.

Clarence Darrow in Pleading the Cause of Haywood Declares the Accused Is Either Guilty or Innocent. HE ATTACKS HAWLEY And Hurls Unstinted Vitupera tion at Orchard. Says His Testimony Is Wholly Without Corroboration. Boise, Idaho, July 24. Clarence Dar row of Chicago, for two hours and a half of the morning session of the Hay wood trial today, procljilrnei ..he inno cence of his client and the Impossibility of his conviction upon the uncorrobor ated evidence of Harry Orchard. J. H. Hawley, leading counsel for the state and Orchard were the figures around whom most of the storm of the morning centered. Throughout the ten weeks of testimony taking. Hawlev and Darrow have clashed almost daily and there have been frequent exchanges tf angry words until during I-Iawley's ar gument the lie was passed. This morn ing Darrow vented . his accumulated wrath. There was no attempt at re finement of attack. It was straieht vituperation and angry denunciation. For two hours and a half Darrow rang the changes on Orchard's past, his present and his future, and on Orchard he heaped every word of abuse and con tempt that the least possible show of respect for the court would permit. The court room, crowded to its limit, was hot and the atmosphere heavy, but the Chicago lawyer held his audience to close attention throughout the morning. tie pieaoea with voice and gesture. Not quiescent for a moment he paced to and fro before .the box addressing each of the jurymen in turn ani always pleaded that an Idaho Jury should never find a verdict against Haywood upon the testimony of Orchard who, he said, was "corroborated only by a dog, a wall-eye horse and J. H. Hawley. ' Mr. Darrow, in closing the argument of the morning session, said that if the jury should hang Bill Haywood, "one million willing hands will seize the banner of .'iberty by the open grave and bear it on to victory." - Clarence Darrow Opens. In opening Mr. DarrOW impressed the chief case upon the 12 men in the box and declared the defendant is in Idaho as an alien, brought 1,500 miles from home to a community and be fore a jury which does not view life or industry as the men accused of the murder of former Governor Steunen berg teve been taught to look at it. "The defendant in this case and the men in the jail below," -declared Mr. Darrow. "have been brought to trial in the home of a man who was killed in the most cowardly, the most brutal way that any man was ever sent to death. Many of you men on the Jury voted for Governor Steunenberg. One of you had business relations with him, while in the house of another of you he made his home for two years. You are almost the family circle of the murdered man and none of you has ever had any community of In terest with these defendants. . Under these circumstances I can but ask you to lay aside as much of the passion and prejudice as you can and look at us as If we were one of you. Give us the fair and Impartial trial you would give if you had not known the de ceased. You men for more than a year past have had your minds poisoned by lies In the local newspa pers, but now that you have sat here for more than two montns and have heard the testimony you know you have been fed upon poison and lies. Lay aside as much as you can of this poisonous stuff: try to get your mind free and be guided only by the evi dence. Can't Convict on the Evidence. "The prosecution in this case knows it can not convict on the exact evi dence, but it relies upon the strained, forced circumstances to get a verdict from you. This defendant was taken by force from his home, brought 1,500 miles and set down before a hostile Jury to be tried for his life. ' "Imagine yourselves men, taken from your farms and set down before a Jury In Chicago to be tried for your lives and then you can feel in some way as this man does. I believe that under these circumstances you will hesitate to act on the rotten testimony given In Columbia and Who Have Not Been this case to take away the life of a fellow citizen. "But some of you will say perhaps that while there is not enough here to warrant sending a man to death there Is perhaps enough of evidence as to crimes having been committed In the wrestern country to vote to put Bill Haywood in jail to compromise on a verdict of manslaughter or murder vin the second degree. You have that right, gentlemen of the Jury, but I. want to say that whatever else you are I don't believe you are cowards. And I want to say that whatever else Bill Haywood may be, he is not a coward. I would not thank this Jury if It returned a verdict of assault and battery and as sessed a fine of $5 against this defend ant. This murder was cold blooded, de liberate and cowardly in the extreme. If this man sitting in his office in Den ver, 1,500 miles away, employed an as sassin to do this cowardly act. then you ought to hang him by the neck until he Is dead. For God's sake, men, do not compromise. If you believe the story that has been told against this man beyond all reasonable doubt then take him and hang him. He has fought many a fight against the persecutors who are hounding him into this court. He has fought them on the open bat tlefield and he Is not a coward. If he has to die, he will die as he has lived, with his face to the foe. , Nothlnjr But Orchard. "Bill Haywood is either innocent or guilty. If he be guilty I have nothing to say. But men this case is a case of Orchard from beginning to end. There Is nothing at all left in the evi dence without him." Mr. Darrow here launched into a : lengthy, bitter, vituperative denuncia tion of Attorney James H. Hawley, the leading counsel for the state. He as sailed him as a hired man actuated by no other motive than to get the money of the state of Idaho, that he might build another addition to his house; he denounced him as "bug house" and said that he had been a friend of labor or ganizations, as he proclaimed, only when they got their cash to his office first. "It is too bad the old man could not have ended his career before he took this case and told the fool things he has told this Jury. What was there In Mr. Hawley's argument but Orchard? According to his theory everybody lies that that scoundrel may be believed. Hawley has got 'orchardltis' or 'orchard itch' would be a better term." Darrow dismissed Senator Borah, as sociate counsel for the state, with a few words. "I don't mean to insinuate," he de clared, "that Senator Borah is any more honest than Hawley, but I do believe he Is slicker." Mr. Darrow said he did not Deneve Senator Borah was as overcome with the truthfulness of .Orchard s story as was Hawley. In fact." he went on. I am inclin ed to think that if Senator Borah be lieved Harry Orchard was going to heaven, he'd want to go the other way." I . Ashamed to r ace xncnr mmiiira. -The attorney told the Jurors that If their verdict showed they . believed Harry Orchard they would be asham ed to go home and face their wives, their sons and daughters. Turning- to the question, ef wheth er "the butcher" had a - motive for butchering Steunenberg.. Mr. Darrow said there were many witnesses ' who showed Orchard was trying to sell his interest in the Hercules mine up to the time he was driven from the Coeur D'Alenes. There. were others who went uncontradicted and unim peached in testifying as to the threats they heard Orchard make against Governor Steunenberg. "Hawley would have you believe," said Darrow, "that Orchard can not lie since he got religion. I shall have something to say as to that religion later on. but what I want to say now Is that if Hawley has not got religion now he had better eo and set It if there was any left after Orchard got his." Mr. Darrow warned the Jurors that if they convicted a fellow being upon the word of an assassin like Orchard a man. causht with his hands dripping in the blood of his victim they would place a stain uion the state of their nativity and their aoojteo aweiung place. "It Is better." he exclaimed, "that you should let a thousand guilty men escape, better that you should let all the criminals ever brousht to the state of Idaho go free, than to have it said you took away the life of a man on such' testimony as has been given in this court." Mr. Darrow de clared that Orchard had been so con tradicted by witnesses that there was no truth left in his story- , PUNCH'S LITTLE JOKE. Cartoon on the Venezuelan Dodging Situation.

At a meeting of the state entomo- logical commission held Tuesday af ternoon at the office of the state board of agriculture, ' rules were adoptea for the work of the commis sion, and the arrangements made for opening the battle on San Jose scale and other insect pests of the. orchards of Kansas. Those present at the meeting wer F. D. Coburn, secretary of the state board of agriculture; s. J. Hunter, professor of entomology at Kansas university; E. A. Popenoe, proressor , of entomology at the state agricul tural college, F. H. Stannard, senator from Ottawa county, and a promin ent nurseryman, and ..Walter Well-' house, secretary of the state horticul tural society. Prof. Hunter Is the discoverer of the green bug parasite, and Prof. Popenoe Is the man who declared that Hunter didn't discover the parasite or have anything to do with its de- structlon of the Kansas green bug. The two men have been hostile, though Hunter is of a more forgiving , disposition. Prof. Popenoe is said to have preserved a decided attitude of reserve during the meeting yesterday, . so far as intercourse with Hunter was concerned. However, the commission agreed upon a general plan of work. Its studies will be taken up under three heads; first, the Insects beneficial to agriculture and horticulture; second, the Insects Inimical to agriculture and horticulture, and third, the horticul tural Inspection of nurseries annually, and of orchards by systematic sur vey. It was decided that all nurseries in the state shall be Inspected each year between June 1 and November -15, and If found free of Injurious In sects shall be given a certificate of good character. Nursery stock which doesn't have this inspection certificate can not be sold In the state. The board adopted the following rule re- ' latlng to- shipments of nursery stock: "AH trnnsnnrtfitinn oTTirnTi1e fin ing business in the state, are hereby reminded that on and after Septem ber 1. 1907, they must not. under penalty of the law, transport trees or plants commonly, known as nursery stock within the bounds of this state unless the same are accompanied by a. plainly attached certificate of In spection. In oase of nursery stock consigned from without to points within the state, the same must be accompanied by a valid certificate from points whence shipment origi nated. Nursery stock purchased In other states, and shipped Into this state under proper certificate may be transported by Kansas nurserymen under their own certificate. Kansas nurserymen are required to furnish a full list to the state entomologist of all firms from outside the state from whom they purchase stock."
