Orchard Baffles Lawyer Richardson in a Furious Cross Examination
Bomb Murderer's Career
of Crime Laid Bare
Cundnufd from Pace 1. Cols. 6 and 7.
him on several occasions. Having
made this admission, Orchard went
on calmly to say that"he was merely
giving Scott the double cross. It, was
a milder form of amusement, perhaps,
to take money from the hated opposi
tion than to blow it up with dynamite.
There was no Indication that it ' ever
Interfered seriously with the true voca
tion of murder.
Richardson spent a lot of time over
this connection of Orchard with Scott
He brought in also K. C. Sterling, the
chief sleuth of the Cripple Creek mine
owners' association. The witness
promptly admitted that he had seen and
talked with Sterling two or thrJe times.
He met Sterling, he said, in Scott's of
fice in the railroad depot at Cripple
Creek.
The purpose of Richardson in all this
was to lay the foundation for the
charge which is coming that Orchard
v.-as really a detective in the employ of
the mine owners, and that it was his
business to perform "deviltry generally
and lav it at the door of the federation
:i'<-n to discredit them. . It is evident
that that is how the defense is prepar
ing to explain away the terrible story
that Orchard has told.
It was during the examination on
this point that Orchard * assigned
icalousy as one' of the reasons
for his treachery to the federation
cause. He told how he had received no
money for the first attempt at the
Vindicator mine, when he had failed to
set off the carload of dynamite stored
there. He had never made any demand
for pay for that attempt, he said, but
he did think that he was entitled to
something for it
MAKES A COXTRACT
Then he "made a contract" with
Sherman Parker and W. F. Davis to
set the bomb that did such cruel ..busi
ness subsequently, killing McCormick
and Beck. He was to 'get $500 for that
job. Before the bomb went off he saw
Parker and learned from him that an
other man had been selected to' do ' the
train wrecking. Parker had put him
off about money, saying that It was
hard to get just then and would be
until "something' is pulled off." 5
"But If this goes through, then it
will be all right." Parker added, re
ferring to the train wrecking scheme.
'"That made me sore," said Orchard,
"I was 6ore to think they had • sent
me down Into the mine to do. the other
job and had given me nothing for it,
and then had given this. easy job to
another man."
"That is you were jealous about it?"
queried Richardson.
"Tos,< I felt like that," replied Mr.
Marderer. ,
Richardson tried to tangle Orchard
up on his dates as to the Vindicator
shaft explosion' and the -"first train
wrecking attempt, but Orchard stuck
to h!s original proposition' and never
pave a date except as to tho best of
his recollection.
*Tm not sure about- it," he always
said. "I think it was so and so." This
thrusting and parrying about the .Vin
dicator explosion and the train wreck
ing attempt served to bring out clearly
the attitude of Orchard at that time re
jrarding the killing of 'nonunion men.
He admitted that the car of dynamite
If f'-i off would have killed all the men
then in the mine.
"Tou would just as soon kill a car
load of men as a few?" asked Richard
son. .. _ \u25a0
"Well, that was the way I felt about
it at that time," replied Orchard.
lie made it clear before be got away
from the subject that those in 1 the
mine were all nonunion men'who had
gone to work after the strike began.
Richardson tried to show that some
union men were working in the mine,
but Orchard Insisted that: all the union
men had gone out on the calL "\u25a0
MADE. FRIENDS QUICKLY
Three times during the day the cross
«xamtnation touched oh a point that Is
sure to be much debated when the case
comes to the closing arguments. - They
"were different incidents, but all of the
Fame character. Tne first was aa to
Orchard's first meeting with Billy Ack
<rman, who helped him fix the bomb
that killed McCormick ' and " Beck. :\u25a0 He
calmly declared that the very -first
time he ever saw Ackerman he asked
him to. help in that job and Ackerman
agreed. Richardson took. the. position
that s-uch a thing was impossible; that
it was unbelievable that, any man
would agree to" go on a murdering ex
pedition with another^who; came, to
him as a total stranger and. made the
proposition within five minutes of their
first words together.,
The attorney did not argue it then
and there . with Orchard and In : that
fashion, but the point was^clearly in
dicated by the questions he asked "and
the manner of asking them. With
Orchard it was ; always sufficient an;
swer. and complete explanation of. the
mystery that Sherman _ Parker/ had
sent him to Ackerman • and' had pre
viously . told Ackerman ." about.; him.
That, too, will be -.the contention vof
the prosecution wher»« ft' reaches the
argument stage. It will, be urged that
such willingness on' Ackerman's > part,
instead of being demon
strates the understanding for murder
and violence that existed among: those
men and that all Ackerman • wanted'
was to have the right man; come with
the proposition.
HAD A "BOMB PARTVV
The Oney Barnes \u25a0 Incident' was ex
actly similar. That *was ', the case -of
the bombs that; Orchard says' he and
Barnes made to be thrown 'into ttie
Vindicator coal , bunkers.; « .They, 'had
never met and neither knew- Ihe other.'
Orchard's version of their meeting: and
the" conversation , when they, planned
the outrage afforded .amusement It
was something like this. * :,
"Hello. Barnes,' I'm Orchard. Let's
have a bomb party.^BßßpQßpß
"Sure. Come up to the house and
we'll make a few, now and ; , blow up.
some nonunion fellows/L|MBH|B|
The third Incident of this, character
was when Orchard «rhet PetJ,ibpne-for
th*! first time ' That was „ tn»",t>enver.
Orchard said that he, . was talking with
Moyer at the headquarters'*' office
when the federation president told him
about "Pettibone dope," . ' The. ''fluid",
was used to - kill, strike ... breakers ' as
they were riding on the cars../ Moyer
told Orchard to go over to»PetUbone's
store and j?et some of it to- take back
to Cripple Creek. ". .' _,',,- ;'.!. j
•-' Orchard went. and this is about what
happened^ He had never seen P«tti>
bone In his life, but Pettibone /had
heard about his. exploits of 'dynamiting
at the Vindicator. Orchard walked into
Ahe store and said: J 'Hello,; Pettibone.'
I'm Orchard.*!/- ','\u25a0'„" ." \u25a0 "^
"Fine," says Pettibone. "Have ia. few
gallons of "dope.**- '•*; -i - -V '. .- .->">? r f _ > v * -' f^ji.'
It wasn't, of .: course* "in , Just ;thos«
words,, but that.it is a fair report of; the
»subEtanoe of the \u25a0 talk as , Orchard " gave
it. And the . result' was lthat', Orchard
went back : to. Cripple Creek •with? sev.:
eral gallons; of ,1 the' stuffing his j grip-*
sack. That was ; probablyiwhen •, he '.was
practicing -for- his. subsequent amuse
ment as a gripsack toter, of dynamite. ,
Orchard ; told of; burying th« >*'dop«" f
near his cabin.' and when he first 'con-
fessed 15 months ago the stuff was.
found and dug. up where be had located
it- It Is now. ready for Introduction' ln
evidence.
All these three 'conversations, which
Richardson brought out with" renewed
emphasis today will- be held by" tfco
prosecution -to: be' certain evidence sf
the fact of conspiracy and of Its ex
tent.'; The answer of the defense is that
they are all lies out of whole cloth.
'' Orchard had his nerve with hlm> all
day today,- : but, toward the close of -.the
afternoon session 'he seemed; to : be
weary. His voice was not sofstrong.
His manner was that of a man physic
ally tired, which l was not surprising,
considering- what he has been through
!n the last" three days." But he was as
alert mentally as ever and did hot fall
into a single trap. . -
- On one' question Richardson .tried
over and over again, with the same re*
suit each time. It was about the trip
that Orchard, made to Denver with
Scott when the railroad detectives; gave
him a pass and about $15 in money.
Richardson . tried hard to get • Orchard
to admit that' Scott took him to Den
ver that time for, the purpose of spying
on" Moyer and Haywood, whom he had
never met.
SEEKS «I\.\ER CIRCLE*
Orchard said that he went to see -Bill,
Easterly, financial secretary of;the free
coinage union, -who « had , gone ": to' Den
ver. He wanted Easterly to present
him to- Haywood and Moyer and tell
them that it .was he who had 6et'the
Vindicator bomb and was entitled to
the" pay.
A dozen times or. more v Richardson
fired in his Question and every time
Orchard met it with a square denial.
Once Orchard ' picked up the official
stenographer and called attention- to
an omission in the record. Richardson
was" reading an answer that: Orchard
bad made to Hawley day before yes
terday, in which herecounted a talk
with Haywood.- It was the time Hay
wood had said: that there would be no
more work ';'\u25a0 for him for some time
"except night work."
. "I didn't say that," declared Orchard,
when Richardson -finished reading.
. "I read from the record," replied
Richardson! considerably surprised.
"I'll read again." -t f
He did. so -and again Orchard denied
its accuracy. Then he. was asked what
he had said and promptly "made " tha
correction, which half -the courtroom
was ready to confirm. :. '
Twice in the course of the day the
nerve of the witness was put sharply
to the test Each time it was a case
of facing a man whom he had just ac
cused of helping in some of his mur
derous dealings. Easterly was the! first
As Orchard . repeated his charge about
Easterly, Richardson, called Easterly,
who was eittlng in the back part of
the room, to come forward. As Easterly
came down the center aisle, directly
behind the witness chair, Orchard was
asked if that was the man to whom
he referred.
IDENTIFIES ASSOCIATE
.'.He swung ..around "in .the dial r. arid
looked". Easterly ,in the. face . without
a", quiver...;'-'.'.-. :\u25a0'.."' . -'.\u25a0"- : \. ... ' " .' : '. l
"'Yea, sir,"- he "said, "that is tho
man.". . • • _.. , ...,:.'"-\u25a0•;,'
Again, when; he told of the borab'party
with Olney Barnes he was called 'on to
confront -his .'man and did' it Avith -the
same 'assurance \u25a0 a'ndr- posltlveness : and
without . a sign of hesitation. \ -V
At the beginning of the day Orchard
demonstrated , that hd 4 meant to : answer
questions in his own way. Richardson
clipped his answers short two or three
times and Hawley Jumped in with a
demand that [ the witness ,be I permitted
to complete what he. had started, to say.
It happened Hince ror twice In i colloquies
so started that the udge asked Orchard
directly if he had anything more to
say.; " Orchard took, advantage* of \the
question to make direcV complaint and
the judge, said sharply to . Richardson
that the /witness would be ": permitted -to
finish. his; answers/^BB \u25a0\u25a0- *\u25a0 '
After that Richardson several times
got more than he; had asked for," and
at last protested . despairingly" that Ihe
ought not lto'J be. required \ to; submit'. to
a . lecture , every . time : he asked ' a ques
tion. On' one of these rallies .In .the
afternoon Richardson and Hawley had
a hot" encounter. .
"If . you take the Hd , off you must
let us "see what's ; underneath,'! cut; in
Borah: as Richardson' objected to; the
length of Orchard's "answer. . "•/;;
"Oh. I know, what's under the lid
and what's been. fixed for me," retorted
Richardson. angrily.'. : / •.
" "That' statement is absolutely; false,"
cried Hawley. v. <
'.Then the s judge took'a hand, and for
a" moment .s. it \u25a0 .was- hot : quite .'/clfear
whether \u25a0he .was '? urging ".them ." to per
sonal encounter or; demanding; peace.
"Go on, gentlemen," he'said, "go on.'.' \u25a0]
PEACE ADVICE A SHAM ''\u25a0',\u25a0]
As in all.^the; preceding; testimony i ot
Orchard,' thireVwas much talk'of Hay
wood and. Moyer, \but not much of;Pet
tlbone.' 7} Richardson j'gbt /him ,. to' admit
thaf he had * heard, both speak at J a
Cripple Creek ' ; picnic, ;. when . each
strongly condemned violence and urged
the men ; to keep the peace,' saying; that
i violence . would • surely be; attributed to
; the; strikers 'and .harm thelr'cause. • ;
. It "Is part of the; "state's C conspiracy
argument* that such ; advice was [ given*
by. the . federation officials. The prose
cution argues that r the \u25a0 'Tinner : . circle"
had' Its/ownL men. to do : the criminal
Work! and. .that 'the' rafik,. and r file -of
the federation : were fiiot guilty: of .'such
things/ ; It ' waj5 1 part of . the ' scheme vto
