SUDDEN ILLNESS OVERTAKES Western Federation Miners' President Stricken With Pain In His Cell at Boise. TOKIC POISONING NOT OF SERIOUS NATURE He Was Able to See His Friends This Afternoon Though Suffer Ing Considerably From His Nlghfs Sickness-Has Not Fully Recovered. Boise. Idaho. June 1. William D, Haywood.' defendant now on trial charged with the murder of former Governor Steuenberg. was taken seri ously HI in his cell in tne county jail early this morning. Doctors were with him several hours, finally giving him relief. It is believed that the prisoner Is suffering from a nervous breakdown 119 for some days he has complained of violent headaches. About 1 o'clock this morning the pains in his head became acute and his cries could be heard In the jail vard. Opiates were administered and at 8 o clock he was resting easily. Bcause of Haywood's illness court adiourned until 1:30. His physicians this morning stated that Haywood's Illness is not serious and that they believed he would be able to be in court at i:au mis alter noon. His sickness was said to be due to toxic poisoning and was very painful though not by any means likely to terminate fatally. It was noised about the city this morning that Haywood had obtained and taken a dose of poison, but the otticials at the Jail, as well as his phy. siclans, deny this and state that his illness was due entirely to natural causes. It would be impossible, con sidering the manner in which he Is guarded, for anyone to place poison in Haywood s hands. This is the fourth week of Hay wood's trial and the third venire of 61 men Is now being examined for jurors. The veniremen are showing an Increased aversion to serving. conference of attorneys was held at noon and It is probable that some of the jurors will be excused by consent of hot O. sides. Mrs. Haywood and her daughters came to court yesterday morntnjr ana for the first time since tne trial De gan she sat Immediately behind me prisoner. If another venire has to be sougu It Is not the prisoner the men of Ada county will be wanting to hang, but the deputies of Sheriff Hodgin. Out of the last sixty-one veniremen summoned, twenty of them tiled up to the judge s desk, asking to be ex cused from Jury service. They were lusty men and hearty to look at. hut appearances have become deceptive in Boise since the trial began, be cause they were as one man in as surlng the court of their decrepit con ditinn. This afternoon court adjourned un til 11 o'clock Monday, as Haywooi: was unalrte to attend court this nf ternoon, though he saw friends In his cell. His counsel reported today that they believe the defendant would be ready to attend court Monday. GETTING HAYWOOD JURY TELLS STOR Roise. June 1. Idaho is the home of the wanderers. They have searched the country, some of them the world, for a place good enough for the establishment of a home and have finally settled in this land of promise, Tests applied to men In the effort to get a jury in the Haywood case brings them to the surface.! It beats the census In turning up the history of the population. M. 11. (ioodwin, a tall, straight muscular old fellow, with grey hair and beard and twinkling blue eyes, was a typical case. Where was he born? In Maine Where was his next place of resl deuce? Massachusetts. Where next Minnesota. Next? Misissipi Next?Malne. Well? California i Then where? olegon. (NVxt Washington. Then? Idaho. an here he has lived for 20 years. He is in the lumber business, and a solid citizen. He has been a farmer, car peiiter and miner. He was not southern sympathizer und so ex plained: "I left Mississippi in some thing of a hurry in 161. Another interesting case w that of ('apt. ates. For 30 years he sailed as a ship captain from New Kngland to all parts of the world. Here he is. up In the mountains and president of a big national bank. A tall, bearded Missourlan said he had spent several months In an In terior Texas town, and had spent several months In the state on the way home to Missouri. Foreigners have not penetrated to this region to any great extent. With two exceptions every man of more than 100 examined for jury duty was born in the states. Missouri is in the lead as mother of ldahoans. with Iowa as a good second. Half the states were represented. There was one man from New York and one fi)ni South Carolina. Maane contributed half a dozen or more. Many of them came here as gold seekers and. failing to make a strike, s.-ttled down to agriculture ami si.u-k raising. Now they form a high standard of citizenship. They are men of family, land owners, in telligent and independent Americans. That suggests another striking phase nf the great trial. It is a con test bet ween two classes of Ameri can citizens that will be decided by u third class. All the wealth and Influence of the mine owneis have been brought to bear ill an effort to convict Hay wood, and. through him. the West ern Federation of Miners. The fed eration and thousands of other orklngmeri have lined up for the HAYWOOD defense. PETTINE 18 TO GIVE HIL1- IF UP Surrender Will be Made In Santa Fe Within a Few Days to Sheriff Armljo. ATTORNEY T. B. CATRON NEGOTIATED THE DEAL Alan Who Killed Berardlnelli Will Be Released on Bond--A Review of the Tragedy-Police Are Not Surprised Defendant Will 7 Claim Self Defense, Special to The Evening OlUr.en. Santa Fe. June 1. That Pet- ' tine, the man who shot and mortally wounded Beneditto Ber- t ardiuelli in Albuquerque on Feb. 4th, will surrender himself to the authorities within the next few days, is a report heard here 4 today and generally believed. The report Is to the effect that t 4' Pettine is in hiding within less 4 i than 100 miles of here and that 4 he has become tired of being a fugitive and has decided to ' throw himself upon the mercy f of the courts, with a plea that t 4 he shot Berardlnelli in self de- fense. The surrender will be made 4 either to a member of the Ter- rltorial Mounted Police here or to the sheriff of Bernalillo coun- f ty. It is Impossible to learn a' where the man is hiding. i i ) i i i I I t H i I I I I McMlllin Not Surprised. . When shown the above telegram this morning Thomas McMlllin, chief of police, said that he was not sur prised. In fact he said that he had felt sure all along that Pettine had never left the territory and that soon er or later he would give himself up The whole country was flooded with reward posters and pictures of the man immediately after the crime was committed and there was little possi bility of him getting out of the coun try without being detected. Pettine was well aware of these conditions and he has been kept advised on the movements of the authorities, so It is said, and has constantly received assistance. The city department Was very ac tlve immediately after the killing in sending out literature describing Pet tine and putting the ofllcers of neigh boring cities on the lookout for the murderer. Sheriff Refuses to Talk. Sheriff Perfecto Armijo Is reticent on the matter. When asked about it this morning he refused to either deny or conllrni the report. He said that he was not in a position to talk on the subject of Petttne's arrest. He said that he was afraid that publicity would Interfere with certain plans. His office and the territorial mounted police had been working on the case with the theory that Pettine was still in the territory, but whether or not either had been successful in finding Pettine he would not say. Pettine, who was a stone mason, working at Iiis trade In this city, shot Berardinelll, another stone mason, shortly before noon on the fourth day of February. The tragedy took place on north Third street in front of the business house of Toti & Gradi, and was the result of a business misun derstanding In the first place and fin ally as the result of a letter, supposed to have been written by Pettine. This letter was not signed, but llerardl nelll thought that Pettine wrote It. What it contained, however, has not been made public. It Is written in Italian. The letter was left at the store of Toti & Gradi and was opened there. It is the general supposition that It slandered Berardinelll for when he read it he became very angry. He had Just finished reading It when Pettine passed the Toti & Gradi store. Ilie Shooting. "There goes the man who wrote that letter." he said and ran to the door. Berardlnelli accosted Pettine and It Is said that he began abusing him. "You can call me bad names; you are bigger than I am," rejoined Pet tine, "but don't you touch me." Pettine continued on his way then, but came back 111 about fifteen min utes. Berardlnelli was still standing In front of the Toti & Oradl store. Pettine walked up to him. "What were those names you call ed me?" he shoutod. He pulled a shining pistol from his pocket at the same time and fired. The bullet struck the victim in the abdomen. Berardinelll fell, then got up and staggered tuivn the door of the store and fell again. He was removed to the hospital und lived about three hours. After the shooting Pettine ran through the northwest part of the city with the pistol still in his hand. He was last seen as far as the police are aware, near the summer Garden, a resort Just outside the city limits, near the American Lumber company mills. Surrender Work of Catron. It Is said that Thos. B. Catron, of Santa Fe, is attorney for Pettine and It is believed that it was through Mr. Catron that the murderer negotiated with the authorities for his surrender, anil it is believed that the conditions of the surrender have been agreed upon. Mr. Catron recently visited here on business. Pettine. It is thought, will leave his hiding place In the mountains and go to Santa Fe, where he will give himself up to a member of the mourned police, with the understanding that he be permit ted to await trial on bond. The bond will probably be issued from the Bernalillo county district court, so that it follows that Pettine will be brought here immediately af ter his BUiiender.

SHE HAD SEEN ROUG H ON-RATS USED Special to The Evening Citizen. Hlllsboro, N. M., June 1. Suspicion points to Alma Lyons, the negro girl who assisted in the poisoning of Val entino Madrid, as being the perpe trator of another crime of a similar nature. In discussing the action of polson3 at the trial for the murder of Madrid she said that she had preferred the use of Kough-on-Hats. When asked why she preferred Hough-on-ltats, she said that it affected the victim differently. While most poisons act ed quickly, Hough-on-Hats would kill slowly. It would take nine days to kill a man with Bough-on-Hats. When asked how she knew that it would take nine days, she said that she had seen It tried. Recently, when her father called on her, the old darkey put two ques tions to his daughter, which may have some significance. He said: "How did you get over here?" "What did you do with all that money District Attorney Walford heard these questions asked, and he aUo heard them answered. To the first the girl said that a woman by the name of Alma had given her a ticket and had paid her hack fare. To the second she said that It was in a trunk "over there." The district attorney took "over there" to mean Silver City, the home of the Lyons family, though previous to going to Hlllsboro the girl had been working at Fort Bayard, or in the vicinity of the fort. Regarding the mystery of a second crime, If there really Is a second crime, there are Just two problems for the authorities to solve. One Is to find the trunk referred to and see what Is In It. The second one Is t ) uuu uuL r"" ,' .., , ,wl cinity of Fort Bayard. Alma Lyons is only 16 years of age, but she has a wide knowledge of poisons, which makes her dangerous, she told the doctors at Hillsboro things about poisons that they had never thought of.

AND THEIR GOLDEN PRISON It wn a golden prison, but WIFE IS EXTRAVAGANT IS THE DEFENSE OE GOULD Howard Declares That She Spends Money too Freely and Shows too Many Jewels. CLAIMS SHE ALSO HAS VIOLENT TEMPER New York, June 1. Two of the counter charges In Howard Gould's answer to his wife's suit for a separa tion have been announced. One Is that she Is Inordinately ex travagant. The other Is that her temper was a source of constant an noyance to Mr. (lould and many times had embarrassed her friends, besides being a barrier to the Oouldj' domestic happiness. Oould also says that his wife's dis play of jewels in public was a source of annoyance to him. The other counts In the answer cf Mr. Gould have not been made pub lic. His defense is along the expected lines and Mrs. Gould's attorneys claim that they will be able to successfully prove an entirely different state of affairs. The fact that the federal grand jury will probably take a hand In the Gould case by investigating the al leged tampering with her mall, has caused considerable comment among attorneys. If her mail was opened often It had been delivered to her or her agent, according to the general opinion, the United States will have no authority over the case and It will then become a matter for the state grand Jury. Gould's attorneys have little to say concerning their defense, except to reiterate that they can prove all their Counter claims. EL PASO 60ES ON STRICT CASH BASIS El Paso.
