The largest area burned was that comprising tho townships of Tisdale and Whitney where were located the towns of Torcuplne, South Porcupine and Plttsvllle and the largest mines.

TRIAL JUDGE OF CONVICTED MURDERER - DEMANDS NEW TRIAL pet ition Sets Forth Ninety-One Reasons Why It Should Be Granted; Declares Jury Was Coerced, fDr Mnrnlnc Jonmnl HtwU! tmi Wlrl Denver, July I. -Ninety-one rea sons. Including charges o, bias against Judge Greeley W. Whltford and the claim that new witnesses have been found tn Kansas City and California, were filed In court today upon which attorneys ask a new trial for Harold K. Henwood, convicted of second de gree murder for tlie killing of George K. Copeland in hotel bar the night of May 24, while hhoutlng at N. L. Von Phul, tho St. Louis balloonist. Charges are made against pructlr ally every member, of the court offi cial staff, tlie district attorney's of fice and (he attorney for John V. Springer, whose former wife took the stand in the trial of Henwood that It Is his "belief that the purpose of the action on the part of those so charged was to prevent Henwood be ing given a fair trial." The motion sets forth "that the de fendant believed that tlie presiding Judge, by means of his Idas and pre judice, not alone against thl defend ant personally, but against all per sons, generally speaking, who may be charge,) with and tried for crime in his said court could not and did not give tlie defendant a fair trial." It is claimed that Judge Whltford In another case "dismissed ti jury with a rebuke for brlngitiR In a ver dict displeasing to liini," and that this fact, known to the Henwood Jury caused them to agree to a verdict not In keeping with the evidence. Among the new witnesses Is Wil liam K, Webster, wlio knew Von Phut In St. Louis and was ut the hotel the night of the shooting. It is claimed Webster will testily that late 111 the afternoon Von Phul showed him a revolver and later remarked that "he would make good use of it."

A I'nited States army officer, be-1 lleved to be Captain George Thomas, at the bar during the shooting, will testify that ho saw Von Phul reach for his revolver. Another witness is a member of a theatrical company, who, It Is claim ed, will testify that he took several articles from Von Phul's pocket and that among: them was a revolver. Attorneys for Henwood trinight se cured the affidavit of John T. Carver, an employe of a moving and storage concern here, to the effect that on the night of the Henwood shooting aft ray, while he was standing outside the Hroadway entrance to the Brown Palace hotel bar, where the shooting took place he heard one man say to another with whom he was In con versation, "I would have killed the 1 In my room, hut he didn't have a gun and I didn't dare. Hut I'll get him yet." The oilier man, Gar ver declares, warned the speaker to be careful, receiving the reply, "I'v got Influent enough to put It over.' " Garver says he followed the men Into the bar and asked who the two men were. He says ho was told that the man who had made the threat was "Tony'' Von Phul. The other man. he says was unknown to his Informer. , To newspaper men tonight Garver declared that he had talked of tho matter with friends at the time of Henwood's trial, but had not notified Henwood's attorneys because be thought Henwood would be acquitted and that he would keep out of the case.

I PREJUDICE JULY 15, 1911, E OF MYSTERIOUS AS EVER AFTER Aiieg ed Assailants With Flock of Witnesses Absolutely fute Story of Assault FOUR ITALIANS ARE ALL DISMISSED BY JUSTICE Plaintiff Sticks In Main to Former Story, While De fendants Riddle Entire Tale of Alleged Attack. The hearing yesterday of the four Italians charged with assault wit'i Intent to kill. t Sganzlnl, the well known Swiss promoter of un irriga tion project in TlJeras canyon, result ed In u complete exoneration, by evi dence, or tho defendants, their Immediate- dismissal and the deepening of the mystery surrounding the exper iences of the plaintiff on Saturday morning, July S. All the evidence save that of Sgantlnl went to show that his story of an assault was a fairy tale; on the other hand it is In conceivable that Sganzml should have framed up nut of whole cloth Mich a remarkable and sensational narrative, That something was seriously tho matter with Sganzinl Saturday morn ing Is plain not only from evidence adduced yesterday but from (he la "t that such a case was In court at air, yet the defendants, telling what ap peared to be an absolutely straight story, corroborated nt every turn by many witnesses, knocked Sgaiuini's allegation higher than a kite. It was neurly six o'clock last night when, after uti all day bearing, Jus tice of the Peace George It. Craig of precinct L'8, dismissed Louis and Paul Glucomelll, Louis Rafanelll and Peter Rodda, charged by Sganclnl with as sault upon him with Intent to kill, Sat urday morning, July H, In the rear of Louis (llacomelll's store on North First street. The hearing was held lu thn vacnnt store room of the tli. eU ler building at the corner of Gold avenue and Fourth street In order to accommodate the large number of witnesses und the audience. The bear ing began at 10 a. in. and lasted all day with the exception f a short In termission at noon, Sganzlnl held In the main to bis story as related after tha allege, assault; testifying that ho came in from the Country Chili in TlJeras canyon on July s in answer to repeated requests from Louis Gia comelll over the telephone, Giacomel ll telling Sganzlnl that he wished his receipt fur two payments on a $1,000 purchuse of stock by Glacomelli In the Sandia Uunl and Improvement com pany of which Sganzinl Is secretary; and also that he, Glacomelli, wished his advice on an Important document. Sganzlnl testified he then came to the city and visited the Glacomelli store between 9 and 10 a. m. Hitching his team outside and entering tlie place, ho says Glacomelli engaged him In conversation and finally led him to the rear of the store, picked up a gun und u document, ami pointing the gun at Sgaimni told him he could not get nut until he signed the paper. I Kgautini said Paul Giacomelli then came in and told him "You better sigtl that paper vou cot a family to take care of;" and Unit Louis Rafanelll and Pete Rodda were standing near li 1 in. On the stand he said he refused to sign the paper uml men reiueinoereu no more until be found hiinselt In a South First street hotel the lollowr lug Sunday afternoon. , Sganzlnl said he could not remem-' her being hit, thai statement being in conflict with his previous one that he felt two blows on the head . Cross ex amined liy Attorney Francis 10. Wood lor the defense, Sganzlnl said he did not know what the paper was, had not time to read it, but knew It was not a legal document, tie neciareii ue never drank to excess and drank noth ing Saturday morning . The defense, by a large number of witnesses, showed Hint Rafanelll had a complete alibi, being at his post of bar tender in the Montezuma saloon all the morning, and that there, was nothing to show that the other de fendants had made any assault upon Sganzlnl save the hitter's testimony. Pete Dinelli and other testified to see ing Sganzlnl come out of tho Glo comelll place and get into his buggy and drive off in an apparently ration al and uninjured condition. The nc cused denied the whole story of either threats or assault. Story of the Glacomcllls. The story told by the (Jiacomellls was an apparently straightforward one, well supported by evidence all the way through. Louis Glacomolll In substance testified that ho Was 0 stockholder In Hie Sandia company and had paid up a quarter of his stock, that he telephoned several times to Sganr.inl's place and when he finally! got him on the wire asked him to Nto tn the store the first time b came tn the, city. Giiicomelli said Sganzlnl had repeatedly put him off regarding the actual beginning of work on Hie project of the company, suying that expected pipe was soon to arrive, etc aind that he, Gluconic III, was tired waiting to see results for his money, '.ftp said he had not seen Sganzlnl for (hrce mouths until be came lu, In ac rordance with the telephone conver tuition, on Sal unlay morning. He swore and so did oilier witnesses, that at no tim,. during Sganzlnl's presence In the slore wes lie noire than ten feet from the front entrance; that he was on one side of the counter nnii wit ness was on the other; Ihat their con versation was friendly and casual un til he asked Sganzltii about the pipe and the secretary told him again that it was expected booh.

It was understood today, how ever, that Senator Smith hnd decided to support the Nelson amendment. Questioned as to his Intentions In this regard Sen. Smith said that while, he had not fully made up his mind, whatever action he decided upon fi nally would be that which he believ ed liest call llluleil to insure lllimeuuiie statehood for both territories.
