Defense Is Laying the Foundation foi
the Charge That Steunenbergs
Assassin Was Hired by Mine
faire Idaho Slowly but surely
thu defense In the Haywood trial is
developing tho lines by which It i
hopes to break down tho story of
Harry Orchard so far as It affects
Haywood now on trial Moycr and
PetUbonc who are yet to bo tried on
the same charge If it is possible to
heap further obllquy on tho witness
they have done so by proving him
capable of petty crimes By his own
admission he Is a bigamist a thief a
liar and an Incendiary Ho has played
tho traitor to his employers lie has
deserted two wives and his child Tc
all these offenses ho has been forced
to confess but under a gruelling ex
amination by Richardson ho has stuck
to his story and given chapter and
verse Possible witnesses after wit
nesses have been named and counsel
for tho defense state most positively
that tho pile of sworn testimony they
will bring to contradict Olchnrd must
convince the Jury of the entire falsity
of his testimony By their questions
they have plainly Indicated their in
tention to prove that Orchard was the
hired agent of the mine owners who
harassed by the Western Federation
of Miners determined to wipe union
labor from the mines of Idaho and
Colorado planned assassinations
train wrecks and mine explosion
that could bo laid to the door of the
Western Federation of Miners and
would keep militia on tho ground

It has been shown under tho cross
examination that Orclmixl trafficked
with railroad detectives in tho mining
xiglon of Cripple Creek during tho
great strike there while almost at
the samo time ho was in the confi

Federation of Miners and led by Mr
RIchardson Orchard has stated that
ho was hired by Moyer the president
of the Federation to act as his guard
Against thugs alleged to have been
hired by the mine owners to attack
and terrorize him
From half a dozen states witnesses
will be called to deny Orchards asser
tions Already two men accused by
Orchard of complicity In the plots ho
says wore hatched within tho inner
clrclo of the Western Federation
have been called upon tho stand in
open court where they sat as spec
tators Orchard has identified them
us tho men ho named and Billy Eas
terly and Owney Barney have openly
sneered their denial of the testimony
Tho court room scene Is remark
sblc possibly the most remarkable
ever seen in any court Session after
session since Orclinrd first went on
tho stand a crowd has sought admis
sion Every seat is filled long before
the sheriff calls tho court to order
Hundreds are turned away The
prisoner Hnywood has a battery of
six lawyers Tho state has four Hay
woods family his wife mother sis
ter and two daughters sit close be
hind him but the prisoner watches
every detail consults counsel contin
uously and Is always alert seldom
showing the slightest sign of emotion
Between counsel for tho stdto and
defense the feeling is very apparent

cxchango of sharp words At times
the situation becomes intense J H

state is quick to anger and down
right In his challenge United States
