having: become exhausted.
ATTENDANCE IS SIEAGEja
: ••' The lack of excitement In Boise over
the trjal was manifested clearly by the
nttejidarrce in court this morning. The
<Joors of 4 the courtroom were not
cip*>n^<l until a few minutes before 10
o'clock, and then there were only a
dozen men waiting to get in, and some
of them were talesmen. As the ses
sion progressed the room filled up, but
there was never a crowd. It is a big,
\u25a0 rectangular room, about 45 feet wide
and 50 feet long, with bare plastered
."\u25a0walls devoid of attempt at decoration,
apd furnished with hard wooden
benches like the pews of- old fashioned
.country churches.
•.'• Across the center of the eastern end
\u25a0the bench of the jud^e runs, with the
clerk at his left, and the jury directly
In front of him. The jury box Is sim-
Iply a double row of big oak arm chairs,
carefully bolted down to prevent un
sefemly tipping back by bored Jurors.
\u25a0An iron rail runs in front of each row
of chairs, a resting place for tired feet,
and beside each chair there stands a
thoughtful recognition of the prevail
ing-, tobacco habit of the men of Idaho
.}n the shape of a substantial blue and
white spit box. Immediately in front
"of the jury box there are fr^*es to
accommodate the attorneys for the
prosecution and defense, with the
stenographers placed between them,
and' the witness chair back of the
stenographer's. A flock of newspaper
.men from outside of Boise have been
assigned to seats along the rail and
Just inside the bar.
FEW WOMEN IN COURT
One striking- difference from a New
"York courtroom during a sensational
.murder trial was the absence today
of a sympathy squad. The women of
this state apparently lack the -morbid
curiosity possessed bj' their sisters in
Xew \u25a0 York or else they have opinions
of such character regarding Haywood,
Moycr and Petlibone that they do not
care to go to court even to see the
defendants. Whatever the cause, the
pity patrol was absent.
Except for his counsel the only
. friends of Haywood who were present
were his wffe and two daughters. Mrs.
3 fay wood, who has lived a pathetically
disturbed existence sincef the birth of
her youngest daughter nine years ago,
was brougrht into the court room in a
wheel chair, accompanied by the nurse
who is always with her. Her eldest
daughter, ag:ed 16, »sat beside her
"jhroug"hout the morning session, with
the little girl sitting most of the time
in the lap of the nurse. They
<>!ose -attention to the proceedings and
scorned even more Interested in the at
titude of the prospective jurors than
Uaywood himself. Mrs. Haywood and
!kt daughters were not present at the
afternoon session.
USE CALIFORNIA METHODS
The selection of juries in Idaho fol
lows the California procedure. As soon
hp court was opened Judge Wood heard .
« scuses from the men who did not want
to serve and let four of them go. They
were the only talesmen who made the
request, and each gave as his reason
the prospect of serious damage to his
'liusiness Interests or a question of
health relative to himself or to that
of some member of his family. Then
the clerk read the names "of twelve
men and they took their seats in 'the
box. Attorney Hawley for the prose
cution then began the examination. But
\u25a0when he had finished "with the first
talesman instead of the defense having
iits turn at the examination Hawley
went on with the next talesman. In
this fashion the prosecution examined
the twelve men. Occasionally the de
fense resisted a challenge, and then It
had opportunity to make further ex
amination of the talesman, but It did
not begin examination on Its account
until, the attorneys for. the state had
found the twelve men satisfactory to
the prosecution. Each side Is entitled
to ': ten - peremptory challenges. But
tiiese "will not be exercised until both
sides' have "passed for cause." .
RANCHMEN AS TALESMEN
It was a hard headed, self possessed
.looking set of men who .responded to
. t!i*> call of " the \u25a0 clerk. , Most of them
were dressed in such a fashion that an ;
(eastern man unacquainted with this !
country and seeing them for the first i
tiia<v would have put all of them down ;
as-bciri;? ranchmen and farmers. The .
.broad brimmed, soft felt hat that: ln-'
variably Is associated with \u25a0 cowboy
"j.ictures formed a part-of.the attire of
nearly all of the talesmen, and three
or four wore the turned up overalls :
seen usually on men accustomed -to :
much time in the saddle.. Nearly all
were in middle life or beyond, bronzed
by exposure to the brilliant Idaho sun,
rough looking, perhaps, but self-reliant
and sturdy. It soon appeared, how
ever, that most of the first twelve were
busy men; several were Boise grocers.
It' developed at once that the reluctance
10 serve on th* Haywood jury, of which
there has been much talk here, did not
jn fact exist- J These men regarded It
as serious business, one which they
' <v,;re bound to undertake at the call of
the court, and with perhaps a single
fxception they responded to the exam
\u25a0 ination in'a manner which showed them
to be honestly desirous of revealing to
the court tlieir real feelings.
WORK OF PROSECUTION
It was disclosed promptly by the line
•"of Attorney Hawley's questions that
..the state was far from an intention to
"rely in-the main on the confession of
•Harry Orchard. The questions as to
the talesmen's opinions on capital'pun
•"ishment. knowledge of the case , ob
" tamed from reading newspapers, or
talking with. others, bias or prejudice
".for. or against the defendant, and that
port of thins were: gone over, and then
Hawley went into the field of circum
stantial evidence. He interrogated
each talesman closely as to whether the
.faof that the proof offered by the state
•-might l>e circumstantial would" have
any effect ion' the talesman's verdict.
Then. too. /lift wanted to know whether
the circumstances under > which Moyer,
.Haywood and Pettibone were .brought
to Idaho from Colorado would have any
.jpfToct on the juror in forming his ulti
. mate opinion.
•" The indictment charges that t tlie three
accused men were actually in Caldwell
•at the time of the murder, although: it
••is sj.fll somewhat debatable whether
'they were really there.. Their connec
tion with the case in this regard must,
1 heref ore. except . for Orchard's story,
•he shown by circumstantial evidence.^
EXAMINATION IH BEGUN
" The first man examined was A. I*.
lowing, a, tall, * gray } bearded war vet
c in with the bronze button of the
Orand Army of the Republic In his coat
lapel. He affirmed that he, had served
recently, as a juror in a, murder: trial,
when the defendant was acquitted, but
, that fact did*not seem to Influence the
ta'esmen. Ewing said that he had . read
and talked a good deal about the 'case,
but he declared that he had. formed no
opinion about It, "although that sounds
like a wooden man," : Ewing; added.;
Attorney Hawley - questioned f Ewing
closely about the newspapers t that -he
had read, as he did all the others. But
Ewing had seen only the Boise: papers
and knew nothing of the socialist cam
paign. It was James L. Ayres," a
farmer from the lefwerend'of the coun
ty, who told about the socialist news
prpers that had been sent to him. 'He
had come to Idaho from Tennessee in
ISBI, he said, and had lived on his pres
ent farm ever since. '. Hawley's exam
ination as to these papers brought out
the first opposition from ' the defense.
When Ayres was asked how. long the
free distribution of these papers had
gone on, Attorney. Clarence Darrow, of
counsel for the defense, objected on the
ground that the question was too broad,
and contended that the state could go
into the question only as it related to
that particular Juror.
COURT MAKES . RULING
Judge Wood had been paying hawk
like attention to every word, and the
moment Darrow had stated his objec
tion he was ready with his ruling.
"The court is dlsposed-to give; con
siderable latitude to both sides in" the
examination of Jurors." ! said Judge
Wood. "The objection is overruled." *
Despite the fact that Ayres said that
he had formed an opinion^ as to the
guilt or innocence of Haywood, and also
that he had quit reading -the socialist
papers as he had become tired of them.
Attorney Richardson, for the defense,
resisted the challenge for, cause which
was made by the prosecution.' Ayres
said that he guessed that he could give
Haywood the same kind of a trial that
he, Ayres, would like to have if the
situation were reversed. The chal
lenge, however, was allowed.
It was the fact that they had formed
opinions which bowled out most of the
rejected men. Only one, an extraordi
nary individual, with a bald head and
an amazing mustache nearly a foot
wide "from" tip to tip, got off for an
other reason, and that was that he had
objections to capital punishment. When
the morning session was ended two
men had passed the siege of the
prosecution.
SEXATOR BORAH EXAMINES
The afternoon session went much
more satisfactorily. It took only a few
minutes to satisfy the prosecution as,
to the remaining ten. United States
Senator Borah, of counsel for" the de
fense, did some of the examining at the
afternoon session, and, although : he
went over the same ground covered by
Attorney Hawley, he concluded much
more rapidly. And he found talesmen
who had not formed opinions and were
prepared to syve. At 3:30 o'clock At
torney Richardson ' .took a ; hand .in
examining for the defense. He showed
at once that any man who had ever
had anything, to do , with labor troubles
with the opposite. side could not sit on
the jury so long , as the defense had a
peremptory challenge left.
In the hour and half consumed before
the panel was exhausted Richardson
had put half a dozen men through the
mill, and each one had been accepted
on the same line of questions. He
asked the talesmen whether they knew
of the Coeur d'Alene troubles of 1892
and 1899; whether they had any bias
for or prejudice against labor organi
zations in general, and especially the
western federation, of miners; whether,
they belonged to or had anything '\u25a0 to
do with the Citizens* Alliance or simi
lar organizations, or whether they had
been connected with_ any detective bu
reau or had performed any detective
work 'or had been connected with any
sheriff's or the office of . any public
prosecutor. Then Richardson asked if
they had been connected with any
mine owners' association.
REFERS TO SECRETARY TAFT
The speeches of Secretary Taft In
Pocatello and Boise last year came in
for consideration, and Richardson asked
each talesman whether he had heard it
or read* It, and if so- what* he remejn
bered of it, and whether the utterances
of Secretary' Taft on either occasion
had any weight with him,. and whether
would it influence' his verdict If he were
selected for the Jury. Both of those
speeches Were law and order talks that
have come in for much criticism from
labor organizations -since. Richardson
also wanted to know whether the tales
men had made* any contributions other
than taxes for antilabor purposes. In
the same way he' took up the message
of Governor Goodingto- the last legis
lature in which Goodlng detailed what
he. had done' toward prosecuting' the
alleged murderers o^ Steunenberg.
Richardson then questioned the tales
men as to why the legislature had made
an appropriation for carrying -on the
prosecution. In all of these cases he
wanted to know \u25a0whether the talesmen
would be affected by the 'question - of
authority in forming his verdict. The
president's "undesirable citizen" letter,
was the subject of further questions
along the same line," and as in the case
o£ ( the Taft speeches every '+ talesmen
swore that 1 he would . not be In any
manner affected by what the president
had - said. \u25a0' V'
REPUBLICANS. RAP ROOSEVELT
. 'If what these talesmen said , can be
taken "as : a criterion there' has; never
been any real occasion, for the' denun
ciation that the .president's letter called
forth from the eastern friends of Moyer^
Haywood land Pettibone. '•'/..Three talest
men. said > emphatically " that they
lieved that itvwas not the; president's
business to concern himself iwitlv this
trial, and every one, who so expressed
himself declared that he was a repub
lican. Richardson went 'lnto .the mat
ter of relations between j the' talesmen
and the \ attorneys .for the - prosecution,'
the social ' relations or their: families,
their". i own membership ln ;: lodges \u25a0/ and
that' sort of thing. Two -talesmen said
that ! they were Odd Fellows, and ;. Ric
hardson asked them whether they had
heard about the resolutions^ passed by
the" Odd Fellows at Meridian," denounc
ing'the murder ; of Governor: Steunen
berg and demanding, the prosecutlonof
the assassins.' ; He : carried this matter
of fiossible association with : the prose
cution even to "the? question; of -church

% An interesting paragraph in Presi-"
dent Thalmann's \u25a0 report . relates to \u25a0 the
prospects of * the United .Railways in-,
vestment company, 7 which Is as follows:
When it Is considered that in the course of, the
year 1906 the earnings of the . United Railroads
of San ' Francl»co hare •• been - subjected to \u25a0 . the
earthquake, the resulting ; conflagration i and all
its congequenees, the strike of; !ts employes and
the consequent general demoralization, they offer
a , most encouraging promise I for, the j future j and
Justify the hope that at no distant day payments
of <;ash dividends may : be resumed. -^; .'
Some general information concerning
the finances 'of the United Railroads 'of
San Francisco is contained in the fol
lowing paragraphs:
Both the gross • and I the net earnings of the
United Railroads of San Francisco had shown ex
cellent results up to the 18th <day of April 1806.
On that, date the earthquake occurred, which-re
sulted In a disastrous 'fire and involved, the com
pany la great loss which included, the destruction
of the cable power, houses and severe injury \u25a0 to
the cable conduits. V' , r.:.,--
That company reports that it has now installed
the overhead trolley system on ; practically all,
the important roads \u25a0 formerly operated by cable,
and \u25a0 that i over 91 per cent of '\u25a0 the : mileage : of.
the company Is now in operation,' and that they
expect to place the balance of 9 - per - cent : in
operation as rapidly as the • city ; completes cer
tain necessary street improvements. ; :
The balance sheets of the sUnited | Railroads of
San j Francisco furnished -to : this company show
that, between December; 3l. 1905 and March 1,
1907, there had been expended in the . restoration
and - reconstrnction :of \u25a0 its • lines and I plant,"^ In-,
eluding improvements and \u25a0 betterments .. and the,
physical loss ' resulting from, the earthquake - and
fire, a total of over, $4,000,000/ ~^ ;: -. - f
' The reports . received from the officials of the
United , . Railroads of • San Francisco ' state j . that
all expenditure for betterments f and i improve
ments made . to March : 1 .'\u25a0 1907, bad been financed
by the 'company .land that its current liabilities.
as evidenced by its balance sheet dated February
28. 1907, did not. on that date exceed the amount
usually carried by that company. ;",\u25a0'.* \u25a0. V-. i :...
- The ,\u25a0 existing in. .; San . Francisco,
created by, and consequent upon the earthquake
and the fire, also led to a strike on the linos of
the railroad company, involving practically* all
its employes, which 'lasted -from August* 26, to
September 5, ,- 1906. \u25a0 Although t- the .- strike - ter
minated in a resumption of work 'on, the \u25a0 part: of
the company's employes, .under an*. agreement to
