T FOR End of Long Case Expected When Borah Closes Tomorrow Night. WHY MIMAS HOT USED ON STAND Attorney Explains Reason For Not Using Some Witnesses and For Having Put Mover Before Jury. Though a Prisoner. Boise, Idaho, July 25. In resum ing his address to the Haywood jury this morning, Clarence E. Darrow, who Is having the last word for the defense, took un the defense of Jack Simpkln's Might after the arrest of orchard. Darrow was very hoarse as a re sult of speaking five hours and forty minutes yesterday and spoke today with the greatest effort. He said that the reason Simpkins was not here was because he was afraid to be In Boise. He did not know whether Simpkins is innocent or r.oit, but took Issue with the state ment of Proscutor Hawlcy that his mgnt proved his guilt. He said that If that be true, the fact that Haywood. Mover and Pet- tibone did not flee proved their In nocence, but neither proposition Is true. Wliy Adams Wits Not Used. "Hawley blamed the Federation for the re-election of Simpkins to the executive board, but if he had not been re-elected, Hawley would have said that showed beyond a doubt that the man was guilty," said the attorney. Darrow here went Into a lengthy discussion as to why the defense had not nut Steve Adams and Georare, A. Pettlbone on the stand. He demand ed to know why the prosecution had not put C. K. Sterling, detective of the Mine Owners' association on the stand. Adams, the attorney ' ex plained, is on trial for the murder of a man In northern Idaho. Under the circumstances, Darrow said he would rather cut on his right arm than allow Adams to go on the stand, much as he desired the ac quittal of Haywood. Must be Protected. "I am not afraid of what he would say against Haywood, but I am afraid to let Adams, my client, turn himself wrong side out under the cunning cross examination of Sen ator Borah and then have his testi mony used against him when, the second trial for his life begins. No lawyer who would permit his client to do such a thing would be worthy of the name." As to Pettlbone Darrow said the same thing was true. No Cane- Against Moycr. The reason he had nut Mover on the stand while he too Is awaiting una i, uarrow saia, is that mere is no evidence of any sort for Moyer to explain. He expressed the belief mat Moyer would never be tried. Darrow demanded to know whv McParland and Sterling have not been indicted. He charged the Mine Owners' association directly with the blowing up of the Independence depot, so that they might take the law In their own hands and drive out the Federation and all the men. women and children who sympa- imzeu wun 11. Plunging vigorously Into the Crln pie Creek troubles, Darrow declared that "When some day the people get the right angle of this case and look back upon the Colorado labor strug gles, they will have had one of the most Important and pregnant chap ters in tne history of the United states. Ridicules Orchard's llcligion. Darrow dwelt for the last hour of the morning session upon the Brad ley explosion in Sun Francisco. "Ie declared that all the evidence point ed to a gas explosion and described the testimony In support of Orchard' story as to the bomb as "manufac tured In Pinkerton McParland's per Jury factory." The attorney asserted that It was impossible for Orchard to have gained the roof of the Bradley apartment except by climbing the gutter jape. "And you don't catch Harrv climb ing any pipes," he went on. "Oh, no, no chance like that for Harry. He might fall down and hurt his finger, and if he hurt his finger he might not be able to play the harp in kingdom come." The luncheon recess taken at this point, continued until 2 p. m. Dar row will complete his plea of this afternoon mid Senator Borah will commence his closing argument to night. t'He Nearly Cunt-ludcxl. The case is now almost closed, as Senator Borah will undoubtedly con clude his argument sometime tomor row. He has already stated that he did not propose to consume much time in answering the argument of the defense. Should the case go to the Jury be fore Saturday noon, a verdict msiy be expected sometime during the after noon, as it is not expected that the Jury will be out many hours. Indeed there is a sentiment here that the Jurymen will agree on their verdict within a few minutes after retiring. IllSHAXD DYING, WIFE M'Mlltl l TO DEATH. Chicago, 111., July 25. Mrs. Eman uel Bloom, 443 Belmont avenue, was mysteriously stabbed and killed In her apartment early today. Her husband called a doctor and a half hour later was found unconscious In the rear of their fiat building, evidently having Jumped from the third floor. lamed Daughter's Chum 1 2 Low s , Mrs. Faye Grnli.im Maglll. Who Married the, Clinton, III., Hanker Wlio la Oinrge.1 With Murdering His First Wife. "nkr' " " DID MAGILL MAKE FAY GRAHAM WRITE LETTERS? Present GIrl-WIfe Said to Have Penned Suicidal Notes. MAY BE INDICTED AS ACCESSORY w0I,P,tor' ln Ju'y Fay Graham Magill, the young- bride of Fred H. Magill, prdbably will be held by a special grand Jury that Is to gather here Saturday, on the charge of hav ing written the letters generally as cribed to the deceased Pet Oandy Magill. It Is considered certain that Fred Magill will be held on the charge of murder. There has been some doubt as to what the Jurors will do with his youthful wife. Ever since the discovery of Pet Maglll's body and the simultaneous appearance of the letters supposed to have been written by her the the orists have been working overtime aa to the authorship of the communica tions. The adherents to the suicide theory claimed that Pet Magill her self wrote them. Did She Write Letters? A person well acquainted with the case and on the Inside explained the theory in this way: "When It came to the last ditch Fred Magill was afraid. He did not want to write the letters, and so he hinted to Fay that she might try her hand at them. I do not say she did it, but it Is not beyond reason. She Is a stenographer by training and a mighty smart woman. What would prevent her obeying Fred In this as she has In other matters?" According to this authority, the state has obtained a specimen of the young wife's handwriting and will turn It over to the experts as soon as the Pet Magill epistles are obtained. The latter are believed to be In ths possession of Marguerite Magill, Fred Maglll's daughter. The state is wor ried over the disappearance of the notes. Point la Ills Favor. Circumstances In Fred Maglll's fav or are these: He Is a man of pleasant disposition and never has been accused of ab solute cruelty. His wife was subject to severe headaches and complained for years of the nagging of her husband's rela tives. She told members of her circle, anj even of the Jury that later sat in in quest over her body, that she was tired of the constant criticisms to which she was being subjected, and would do away with herself. She was unquestionably the victim of a husband's peculiar powers of suggestion; or she was In terror of her husband. The suggestion from him that he was tired of her and preferred the company of Fay Graham might. It if lalnied, create In her mind the pur pose of suicide, without her husband, however, making any threat or di rect request. There are, too, other things that favor the defense. All the evidence Is circumstantial, and the discovery of the body with the face covered with a chloroformed cloth Is prima fade evidence of death from that cause. The doctors so stated, and even If the Chicago experts who are examining the oad woman's Internal organs should report the presence of strychnine, a Jury would -probably say the doubt as to what caused death chloroform or strychnine was so strong that the defendant should b-i discharged.

The Jewish quarter, often the scene of riots through the mlsunder standing by Its people of American customs, seldom witnessed a more violent outburst than that which vis ited It today, The rise In price of meat In the Kosher butcher shops, is of course, due to the rise in price of live stock which prevails all over the country an dls generally credited to the fact that the packers have added to the price the cost of ipost mortem and oiner pure rood law examinations. This is a fact that Is not generally un derstood among the foreigners of this city, and the increased cost of living has caused much discussion The fact that Kosner meat must be strictly pure according to the Jew Ish ritual, and in addition imust be properly handled under certain re strictions of the church, has always made that class of meat a high priced article, but the Jews um no other, "A Ileal HW The additional rise angered the housewives of the section to such a pitch that they were unable longer to control themselves.

Love sougnt discharge upon habeas corpus. juoge fope has discharged the pris oner upon the ground that the law Is lacking In the certainty requisite to a criminal statute. It creates a distinction between the rich and the pour and Is a vio lation of the republican principle which proclams all men equal before the law, he says. It Is in contravention to the Spring er act which prohibits special legis lation. It Is In disregard to the con stitutional guarantee that no man shall be denied the equal protection of the law. Judge Pope further says "I can not consider valid a statute which, while penalizing a fraud says to the offender that If he has money enough to pay up his offense stands condoned. It says In effect to the party who may have committed a fraud: If you have the money to repay your creditor and you pay him, you are not a criminal; If you have not, you are."
