"ir i.,r;wmwi 15 CALLING <Coentinue4 prom First Page.) ' a dramatico pause, was itself in tensely dramatic. give witnesses who traced Horaley and 'Jack Smlimpkins at variods times irlor to the Stuenenberg S irder at Caldwell, Nampa and Silver (,ity and further fixed their move ni: tits by- identifying hotel registers :where they had signed their names, condumed the first hour of the morn ing session, and then 'enator Borah, looking toward the bench, said in a quiet tone: "It will be a few moments before the next witness arrives." The crowd knew Orchard was to come and in keen expectation watch ed 'the two doors of the room. It was to be ,,a realization at least. The prisoner-witness, long sequestered at the penitentiary, was to be produced. (Haywood's mother, Mrs. Carruthers of Salt Lake City, and her daughter sat- beside the prisoner and his wife, having arrived here yesterday from Salt Lake City. Haywood held a -note book and at intervals took notes of t.he proceedings. None of the Hay Wood group could see- either door without turning in their seats, and while they steadily faced front, they showed their expectancy for the ap prearance of the man whose testimony may mean so muds to them. Horsley had spent the night and 'norning at the office of James H.. - ,, rley and was brought to the court house in a carriage with three armed guards. In the chambers of the judge he was turned over to Deputy Sheriff Beamer, who is to be his special . - guard at the trial. Strangers entering the court room during.the morning were searched for weapons, and when Orchard reached the building the doors of the trial room were locked and extra deputies posted. outside the. rail.. The chambers door swnng open and 9uant marched Orchard, led by Beamer ind` followed by two guards, and two detectives,, all armed. They walked hlmoti themarch around the rail and faced the crowd, while he climbed to the witness chair. Far back in the room a man stood up to get a better view, and, a deputy shouted, "sit down. The other deputies instantly started forward and if the maa had not taken his seat quickly they would have, umped for him. A woman inside the rail dropped her .parasol Its clatter drew all the at tention of the nervous erown and the gun fighting men who were there to shield Horsley until they understood what had happened. Haywood leaned down between his counsel so that he might get a clear, unobstructed view of the witness stand and for fully five minutes he gazed steadily at Horsley. The lat ter was, however, giving his atten tion to the state's counsel on the oth er side of the room, and it was not until the first interruption came from the defense that he looked up. There were a few preliminaries as to Horsley's birthplace and real name and his first days in the north Idaho country, and then Mr. Hawley led him down to the destruction of the Bunker Hill and Sullivan mine. He was telling of the meeting of the Burke union of the Western Federa tion of Miners, when the defense made its first) strong attack. Attorney Rich ardson objected to the testimony on the ground that those events occurred years before Haywood was a mem ber of the central body of the federa tion and that he was in no way con inected with it. Senator Borah contended that the state had a right to prove the facts about the Bunker Hill and Sullivan mine for the purpose of showing why the federation of miners had taken umbrage at Gov. Stuenenberg. Judge Wood ruled that the general facts were admissible, but put a limitation on' the amount of details that could be shown. Horsley then told the story of the blowing up of the prop erty in which he said that W. F. Da vis, later president of the union of the Western Federation of Miners at Cripple Creek, had command of the mob. "He told of the attack upon the mine and, concluding, said: "I lit one of the fuses myself." Horaley then told of his flight into Montana and of various journeyings in the western country, until be turn r ,- upat Cripple Greek in 1902, went . ws ':' b..rk.n the mines and joined the Western Federation again. Under ' iri o renewed objection from the' de geAl*,'a`l 'of which was overruled by tle~ court, on the strength of a re peated promise by the state to show the connection of the defendant later, the, witnees told of the plot to blow u'p the Vindicator mine. (He confessed at after the strike began he went 4ownR into the mine ."high grading" ad; there left a quantity of powder. e ted -this to Davis. and there, , aibegan the plot to do violence in" le minte. He said the first at Sipas £ failure because the cage wa ° ed'. h m and his pal and dW * ftire, but later a contrivance w fidi4 by which a dis pet ofa bomb and Mce e ot} v d Foreman aie sd, "'it e er, Raywod a, Pettbs and saente 4 their emplore as an asUase, He, swore that kiawood paid him $800 for blowing up the Vindicator mine. Then came the making of two bombs that were tossed into the coal heap at the Vindicator mine, but were never heard ritom again, and then a digression and he confessed before he mane the at tempt at the Vindicator mine he had Informed the railway management of a plot to blow up its trains carrying non-union men. Next the prisober related how he journeyed to southern Colorado as a guard to Moyer, and here the narrative which had been attacked from every side by the de fense at every material point, halted for the noon recess. Word that Horsley was on the stand spread through the city and "a few mo ments after the doors of the court were opened in the afternoon, every available seat for the public was tak en and a squad of deputies had to force the doors shut and clear away a clamoring crowd that jammed the stairway and landing. Horsley spent the noon recess un der guard at Mr. Hawley's ofmce, and at 1:30 o'clock was driven back to the court house to resume his story. There was no delay this time, and within a few minutes the witness was on the stand telling of his journey with rMoyer and his return to Den ver, where, it was suggested, he said, that he kill Gov. Peabody. He said he picked "Steve" Adams to aid him, and together they stalked the governor between the capitol building and his home, trying for a shot at him with cut-off shotguns. Haywood and Pet tibone were in the plot and furnish ed the witness with money from time to time. The plot failed bedause Horsley and Adams followed a car riage containing three women to the Peabody home and excited suspicion. Next came a plot to dynamite Gov. Peabody, and Horsley said they made a bomb, but gave the plan up at the suggestion of Haywood, who was in fear that they would all be arrested. He said he and Adams were told to lay off for a time, but meanwhile Pet tibone suggested that they kill 4yte Gregory, who had been a deputy aser If and had given testimony against some members of the federation. The witness then detailed the relentless trailing of Gregory and his final mur der. "Gregory turned and backed up against a fence," said the witness, "as itf to draw a gun, and I shot him three times. It certainly killed him." This tale of cowardly, brutal man hunting and killng beemed to 'play with greater intensity upon the nerves of the men and women who sat listeanis to Horsley than any of the others, and a perceptible shudder went through the room ~s he Calmly talked of the abooting.: It Was the Only place where a victim had been actually shot, the others had been done to death by mechanical contrivances Then came the fighttfl tragedy at Independence, followed by the Bight to Wyoming and after that the trip to San Francissco for the purpose of killing Bradley. Orchard swore that after his visit to Denver, when he got the money for killing McCormick 'and Beck, he was constantly in communi cation and in. the pay of either Hay wood, Moyer, Pettibone; Simpkins or Davis, that one or all of them suggest ed his various crimes and that at all meetings held after each crime his acts had been warmly commended. The defense kept up its attack all through the afternoon, protesting against the admission of every ma terial statement of the witness, but Judge Wood, accepting for the time the assurance of the state that it would make good the connection ev eaywhere, ruled against the defense on all points, save one. He declined to let Horsley tell the contents of a telegram sent to him at San Francisco - by Pettibone while he was engaged in a the attempt on the life of Bradley. When taken from the stand, Horsley d was at once driven to the peniten- 51 tiary. He will be brought back to town early in the morning. h Boise, Ida., June 6.--Harry Orchard tI crowned his admissions of grave g ories today when, continuing his tea- s #mony against William D. Haywood, b She made an explicitly detailed confes- v sion of the murder of Frank 'Stuenen- s t berg by an infernal machine, that di- g rectly opens the way for his own ' conviction and execution for the mor t tat offense. He swore that the as- 1 sassination of ~tuenenberg was first e o suggested by Haywood; was jointly a B plotted by Haywood, Moyer, Petti- a [- bone and himself; was financed by c t Haywood and was executed by himself, c s after the failure on an attempt in c r whitch "Jack" ISimpkins had parti -- ~ipated. t y Orchard lifted the total of his own - murdered victims to 18, and detailed 1 v the circumstances under which he , tried to murder former Gov.

Then, under !, cross-examination by the defense, Or e chard confessed guilt of the sordid so- I t- clal crimes of deserting his young s e wife and young child in Ontario, flee- 1 Sling to British Columbia with Hattie ( e Simpson, the wife of another man, and - 'committing bigamy by marrying a ai third woman at Cripple Creek.

His voice dropped to lower keys as the pitiful I story of the long hunt for Stuehenberg [ narrowed down to the last day and he i told of the race from the hotel to thei home to beat his victim with the death i trap and the meeting in the evening i gloom as the victim walked uncon sciously to his doom. Through it all he winced but once, and that was when the defense made him name his ' six sisters and his one brother and give their residences in Ontario and .New York. The defense fought the story with a multiplicity of objections and succeed- i ed in heading off an attempt to tell the story of the murder of Arthur Colilns at Telluride and temporarily shutting out the contents of a tdlegram re ceived and a telegram sent by Or chard after his arrest. The state today began its corrobora tion of Orchard's crimson tale by pro ducing the lead casing of the Peabody bomb. Orchard identified it, and swore that he brought it from Can yon City to Denver and then onto Wal lace, where he gave it to a man nam ed Cunningnam. It was thrown into the river and the state promises to later prove its recovery. 'Haywood and his kinsfolks listened quietly to the long recital, and about their first show of feeling was one of amusement when Attorney Richardson began his onslaught and brought out Orchard's domestic crimes. There were the same precautions and the same armed guards today to protect Orchard, and the seari court room scenes, except that asrong the spectators the women to were '.a two to oe. There was s r lor admittances and the at the court lad to be closed at oase R ' mions. Orchard finished his direct examina tion at 2:35 o'clock and the cross-ex amination had only reached down to the Couer d'Alene days of 1899, when the court rose. The cross-exam ination will be continued at 9 o'clock I tomorrow morning. ARE NOT SURPRISED. Western Federation Oflicer Comments on Orchard's Testimony. i Denver, June 6.-"Nothing to which n Harry Orchard may testify will sur- 1 prise us," said C. E. Mahoney, act- 1 ing president of the Western Federa- 1 tion of Miners, today. "He probably I has committed all the crimes to which he lays claim, but neither he nor the I the state will be able to implicate the i Western Federation or its officers in I any way as being connected with his criminal acts." MORAN MAKES DENIAL. Cheyenne, Wyo., June 6.--Pat Mor an, the Cheyenne saloon keeper men- I tioned in Harry Orchard's testimony at Boise yesterday, as having gone to Denver to get $500 from Pettibone for Orchard and Neville, denied that he ever saw Orchard or ever went to Denver for him or any other person on any errand.

Says an Attempt Was Made to Poison His Milk. San Francisco, Sune 6.-Feed W. Bradley, former manager of the Bunk- 1 er Hill and Sullivan mines in the Coeur d'Alenes, said tonight that Or chard's statement quite fits in with his experience. "The atetmpt to poison me wit. strychnine in the milk," he said, "was mainly frustrated by my habit of early rising, my custom being to breakfast before any one in the house. On this morning I noticed a bitter taste in the milk, spat it out and had the rest put out of the way. Several fnnocent lives were thus saved. This milt had only been delivered a few minutes be fore my tasting it." Bradley, continuing related that he was terribly injured by the explo sion spoken of by Orchard; that he was unable to follow the accounts of the outrage. He referred to the ex plosion which wrecked him home and himself, which was caused by an es cape of gas in the front hall, whtcn ignited by a match struck to light his cigar. "Possibly there were two explosions -the first the infernal machine, and then an explosion of gas caused by the dynamite. The gas may have been the lifting force which threw me into the street." The owner of the flat sued the gas company and was awarded $10.00l damages, the explosion being attribut ed to a defective meter. The gas com pany took an appeal, which is now Iending in the supreme court. Orchard's confessIon having become a matter of court recd at Boise, it is altogether prob.bte that the reao L:-. ord will !be used in the gas company's efforts to set aside the judgment of the lower court. SHE FORGIVES ORCHARD. Mrs. Steunenberg Above Hatred of Husband's Murderer. Seattle, June 6.-A special to the Post-Intelligencer from Walla Walla says: "Harry Orchard has done many wrongs, but I hoped he had repented, and now, that he understands their magnitude, he will be given a chance .o lead a good; true and honest life. after the present ordeal has passed." This is the statement of Mrs. Frank Steunenberg, widow of the former gov. error of Idaho, who was killed by a bomb planted by Orchard at the gate way of his home in Caldwell. Mrs. Steunenberg is attending the annual camp meeting and conference of the Seventh Day Adventists at College Place, three miles west of Walla Walla. She seems to be above hatred of the man who killed her husband, and her conversation would indicate that she has forgiven him. As to Moyer, Haywood and Petti bone, she expresses no opinion, say ing she had not thought of their con -ection with the case. Their punish ment, she seems to believe, rests with a higher power than the earthly courts. She. is leading a secluded life, spend Ing most of her time reading the bible and other religious works. AUTO RACE FATALITY. One Killed, Two Injured in Endur anew Run. t 'Aby, N. Y., June 6.-.e o00-mile automobile endurance ran ut-er the auspices of the New York Motor club, ended in the loss of one life and the serious, if not fatal injury to two oth er persons, about' three miles east of Albany tonight, when one of the au tomobiles crashed into an electric oar. Clarence MoKensle of New York, president of the Standard Brake com pany, was instantly killed. W. H. Mosher, a bicycle man of New York, and W. H. Swan of New Britain, Conn., chauffeur, are in the hospital. Mosher is badly. inured, but his companion ls said not to be so seriously Innured. The car in the accident was among the leaders in the race. The scene of the collision was at Clinton Heights, a station on the Albany Electric line. The machine was making good time when it crashed into the oar. 'The oc cupants were thrown from the auto mobile, McKensle being hurled over-a cable suspended several feet above the ground. It is believed about the head and body. JAP STRIKERS BAD. Both Life and Property Deatroyed` at Besshi Copper Mine.
