Immediately began his presentation
of evidence for the government.
When court opened today the ef

There was little delay In securing

Will ; On Stand.
It is probable that she will be put
-on the stand In her own defense with
the hope of influencing the Jury In
reaching the conclusion that her
mind was so unsettled by the long
continued wrongs which It Is alleged
she had suffered that she was not
responsible for her acts.
She has never made any statement
concerning the details of her pres
ence In the room when the tragedy
;took place. There Is no other liv
ing person who was nresent at that
time. It, Is Whom ii, However, that
while the shooting occurred at 3
o'clock In the afternoon, she had ar
rived in the city early that morning,
having come direct from her home
in Salt Lake City.
The wounds on the senator's body,
one of which was on his hand and
the other in his abdomen, showed
that two shots had been fired. Of
these the latter proved fatal within
Putting such Information together
as they have been able to obtain it,
Mrs. Bradley's attorneys have reach
ed the conclusion' that when she
went to the senator's room, which
she did Immediately upon her arriv
al, she found there certain letters
from Mrs. Anna Adams, mother of
Maude Adams, the actress, the read
ing of which greaptly Incensed her.
She seemed then to have hlsappeared
and not to have returned until the
afternoon, when, finding Mr. Brown
there, she upbraided him, and find
ing him unwilling to marry her, fired
the shots which ended his life.

Judge Orlando Powers, chief coun
sel for Mrs. Bradley, thus describes
the passionate affection that his
client still retains for the memory
of her victim.
"She still holds sacred the mem
ory of the man who caused her all
this trouble and anguish. I have
found It very difficult, even now,
when she Is on trial for her life, to
get her to gay anything that will
cause a reflection on him. Really
vital incidents, big enough to sway
the Jury, she has kept from us up to
the last two days." -
Such Is the complex nature of the
woman who did not hesitate, less
than a year ago, to shoot down In
cold blood the man who refused her
honorable marriaKe after he had
visited um her the deepest wrongs.
As to Mrs. Bradley herself, this is
the view she takes of the matter.
"If my attorneys succeed In mak
ing the jury see the case as 1 see it,"
she said today, "I shall have no
doubt as to the result. "
The defense will be one of Insan
ity, not emotional insanity nor the
unwritten law, per se. nor any of
the sunerfuges that the lawyers are
wont to resort to in such cases.
So "I'll writ ton Iaw."
"There will be none of that In this
trial," Mr. Powers said. "We are
prepared to prove that Mrs. Bradley
was Insane truly Insane and there
will be no mention of the 'unwritten
law" at least on our side of the case."
In this connection counsel for Mrs.
Bradley prevailed upon the govern

Men Convicted of Defrauding
Buyers of Stock Want
HAVE 22 TONS OF
ORE FROiM "THE CAVE"
Denver, Nov. 14. That real gold
assaying $28. SO per ton has been
taken out of the Lost Bullion mines
In New Mexico within the past few
weeks Is set up by C. L. Blackman
and the other men convicted of de
frauding thousands of easterners
through an alleged bogus mine In
a supplementary motion for a new
trial tiled in the federal court today.
The defendants in their motion
also allege they were greatly preju
diced In the minds of the Jury
through an Interruption of their at
torneys by Judge Lewis, In which
he offered to reopen the case to
hear, evidence that ore had been
shipped from the mine In quantity.
It is admitted, however, that It
co-t $38.52 per ton to market gold
valued at $26.60 per ton.
The new motion for a retrial sets
up that since their conviction the
defendants have during the month
of September and October caused to
be mined 21.99 tons of ore from the
New Mexico properties which was
shipped to the Chamberlain-Dllllng-ham
Ore company in Denver, who
extracted the gold. The defendants
claim this Is newly discovered evi
dence which could not have been
offered at the trial, as thev them
selves were unaware of the exact!
nature of the ore and the Lost Bul
lion company had not reached the
point in development where gold
could be taken from the mines.
The motion is accompanied by af
fidavits of persons who mined the
ore and who witnessed the extrac
tion of gold In Denver, Timothy
O'Connor, secretary of state, being
one of the latter. William Thomp
son, manager of the t'hamherlain
Dillingham company: W. A. Cham
berlain, its Boulder manager. and
others tell about the tests in Denver,
while various miners tell of the
loading of the ore at Silver City
and the shipment to Denver. M. W.
Portertteld. a mining expert, and J.
W. Pinkerton present statements
showing the mine to be valuable..
William K. Wilson, one of the de
fendants, declares It cost $766.92 to
mine and ship the ore, or $3S9.ST
more than what they received for
the gold. But he adds that the co.-t
of marketing the ore can be cut
from $3.52 per ton to $14.50, which
would leave a good profit.
The motion for a new trial will
be argued before Judge Lewis No

ATTORNEY IS TELLING
OF MISDEEDS OF
Prosecution Bitterly Arraigns
Former Promoter In Its -Opening
DFENSE EXPECTS TO
MAKE HARD FIGH1
Chicago, 111., Nov. 14. The trial
of John It. Walsh, the former pro
motor, is now proceeding with the
attorneys making the statements of
the facta they propose to present.
District Attorney Dobyns, in His ar
gument, arraigned Walsh as about
everything that Is 'craoked.' 'accus
ing him of owning large properties
In his own right by using the funds
of others In fraudulent manner. He
allt'gnd that Walsh used the names
of "dummies" In checks and In se
curing stocks and bond.s, and that he
personally owed the Institution of
which he was the head, a sum much
greater than the law permitted.
The Illinois Southern railroad deal
and many others in which Walsh
was Interested were gone into thor
ously by the prosecution, which will
conclude its preliminary addresses
Walsh's defense will be the most
stubborn that has ever been fought
In a Chicago court, lie has the best
atorneys available and with the fact
that they had months to prepare an
Intricate defense as well as to learn
what the prosecution had up its
sleeve, It is believed that Walsh
stands a fair chance of acquittal.
The defense has gone after every
possible witness in the case and It
has learned from the prosecution's
own witnesses exactly how much
It Is expected that the defense will
waive Its rights to a statement of
its case until after the prosecution
has introduced all Its evidence.

by the banking house of J. 1'. Mor

willingness to send twenty million of
gold but because of its government
charter desired some form of com

large a transaction.
Communication with Washington
was begun and still continues to find
some method by which the transac

able, however, that the gold will be

today, through his attorneys Inti

Reeve and another man, both em
ployes of the C. & N., said then that
he set the Are to get even with the
C. & 8. "scabs."
Tlio Alleged Confession.
In the Reeve trial here John H.
Chiles, assistant district attorney of
Denver and special attorney for the
Colorado & (Southern, testified that
he had seen Reeve Aug. 12 In the
sheriff's office and that Reeve had
made a statement to him. When
asked what the statement was Attor
ney Folsom objected:
Chiles 'testimony was the story of
the confession and as It was for the
court to decide whether this confes
sion should be admitted as evidence,
the Jury was excluded from the
room. Air. Chiles then told his story
of how Reeve had asked to see him
and' Mr. Clark in private and had
made his confession as to the firing
of the caboose, depot, etc.- He also
Identified the confession, i ' '.- .
Mr. Doolittle, Colorado &. Southern
claim agent, -testified -that Reeve had
been advised that If he were guilty,
not to talk, and If innocent, to talk
and clear himself, and that In no
way was he threatened or advised to
confess, lie said Reeve had at first
denied hW jrullt and stated that if
anyone said he (Reeve) had any
thing to do with the Are, he would
call him a liar. If two of them did
so, he would call both liars.
Sheriff Bartell testified that Reeve
had said he would like to face the
man who said he set Are to the de
pot. He was then brought before
Mr. Woodward and Mr. Kane and
asked to deny the charge before
them. He turned his head and said
nothing. Reeve then asked Chiles
and Mr. Doolittle what their official
capacities were. Chiles told him he
was deputy district attorney for Den
ver and that In this case he repre
sented the Colorado & Southern
road. Mr. Doolittle told him he was
claim agent for the Colorado &
Southern. He then asked to see Mr.
Chiles and Mr. Clark privately. The
three went Into the reception room
of the sheriff's office and the steno
grapher took down the confession of
Declare Reeve Made Confession.
About six weeks ago Reeve asked
Bartell for advice, but Burtell said
he could not give any as It might
not be good. Reeve then told him
that the night he set Are to the cars
he was so drunk that he did not
know- what he waa doing. That when
he stooped down to take the waste
from the cars he fell under them and
Kiser had to pull him out. Also that
when he went up to the brewery he
fell three or four times. At the time
the confession was signed Reeve was
warned that It would be used to se
cure his conviction and he merely
begged for an early trial.
Reeve lK-uloa It.
J. W. Reeve, the defendant, was
put on the stand. He slated that
Mr. Clark had come to him right af
ter his arrest and told him there was
strong suspicion UKaln.it hi m and
wanted him to tell how It happened.
When he refused to answer Clark
threatened to prove It and said then
he would have to talk. That same
evening, utter he bad gone to bed,
he was awakened and asked to go
to the sheriff's oltice. This he did,
where he met Mr. Doolittle. Mr,
Chiles and others. A general con
versation was started and a plan of
the depot and yards was drawn.
Reeve said his attention was called
to a certain spot of this plan and
he was. asked if he did not start a
fire there. Reeve answered no.
When asked what he would do If
some one was brought who would
swear he was guilty, Reeve answer
ed. "I will call him a liar." When
further questions were put to him
lleeve asked for an attorney and re
fused to talk until he had counsel.
He was then taken baft to his cell.
The next day Clark came to him
saying he had positive proof against
him and wanted to know If Reeve
would still deny his guilt. Reeve
said, "I certainly will."
When Reeve was again confronted
by Mr. Chiles and Mr. Doolittle, Mr.
Doolfttle gave him to understand
that they were there In his interest
and would do what they could to
help him. Reeve was led to believe
that If he confeswed it would be eas
ier for him. To make things bet
ter he was persuaded to go before
a stenographer, which Chiles assur
ed him was all right.
Mr. Doolittle then asked him If
there was anything he could do for
him. Reeve asked him to get his

LOUISVILLE TO HAVE
1.100 Men tqbe Called Out
at Midnight If Demands
Are Unsettled. ' j
LAST-STRUGGLE CAUSED -...
Louisville ,Ky., Nov. 14. The lo
cal organisation of the Amalgamat
ed Association of Street and Klectrlc
Railway Employes of America today
declared a strike against the Louis
ville Street Railway company, effec
tive at midnight tonight. Of 1,100
men employed 850 are said to belong
to the union. The strike Is an at
tempt of the union to settle differ
ences with the company. The em
ployes won a partial victory In a
strike last April which was attended
with much disorder.
Before the calling of this strike,
the officials of the union requested
the members to abstain from all vio
lence and In every Instance to keep
out of trouble unless forced to Aght
by self defnse.
Coniixiny Is Hostile.
It was generally believed that the
announcement of the calling of the
strike for midnight tonight would
cause the company to make over
tures toward the men, but the op
posite seems to be the case and the
company declares that it has grant
ed all the demands In Its power and
that the union will have to strike if
It dislikes the situation.
Officials of the company today
stated that plenty of men are in
readiness to take the places of the
strikers and that there will be no
cessation of service owing to the
trouble between the union and the
company. It Is believed that practi
cally all of the employes, regardless
of their affiliation with the union,
will go out tonight.
The strike last spring was a bloody
affair and both sides lost consider
ably In Injuries, property damaged
and self respect during the struggle,
In which the men finally triumphed,
the company giving in to more than
half of the demands.
money from the railroad, pay his
bills and return the balance, togeth
er with the receipts, to him. Mr.
Doolittle agreed to do this. All this
led Reeve to believe that Mr. Doo
little was interested In him personal
ly and was willing to help him.
Reeve aLso testified that he could
not remember much about the con
fession and did not remember sign
ing It. The reason he does not be
lieve he signed the confession lies in
the fact that he does not remember
of ever signing his name in that
way. He does not deny that all the
questions in the purported confession
were asked and that he gave the an
swers as stated there, but he does
not remember anything about them.
Ha remembers that the papers were
not attached together. He remem
bers many minute things, but he
did not remember the questions be
cause he was still under the Influ
ence of drink, although he had had
none for several days.
