Testifies as to "Barry's"

By Oscar King Davis
BOISE, Idaho, June 19.— Further
corroboration of the stcry of Harry
Orchard was made today at the trial
of William D. Haywood for the mur
der of ex-Governor Steunenberg, and
the case of the prosecution was
cinched nearer home. In addition to
the testimony of living witnesses in
troduced by the state. Senator Borah
sought to introduce a number of ar
ticles from the miners* magazine, the
official publication of the western
federation, which, he argued, showed
the hatred of that organization for
the men thit Orchard testified had
been murdered at the behest of- the
"inner circle." There was ?a lively
argument over this offer, at the close
of which the matter was taken under
advisement by the court until the
afternoon session, when it was. an
nounced that some of the articles
•would be admitted and others would
be rejected, the decisions as to each to
be made tomorrow morning.
The witnesses who gave testimony
today Included Justice Luther M. GoG
dard of the supreme court of Colorado,
who Jz the careful phraseology of the
lawyer and the jurist told the dramatic
story of the finding of the bomb which
Orchard had buried at his gate. John
L. Steams, the Denver agent of the
Mutual life insurance company, from
w-hom Orchard obtained a contract to
act as agent, told how he came to make
that contract with the murder ma
chine, and submitted the letters of
recommendation which had been writ
ten to him In Orchard's behalf by
the men whose names Orchard had
given him for reference.
These Included Horace N. Hawkins,
law partner of E. F. Richardson, senior
counsel for Moyer, Haywood and Pet
tibone In the present and pending
trials, and Pettibone himself, as well as
J. C Sullivan, who was then president
of the federation of labor In Colorado.
They were a strong bunch of recom
mendations, and one hearing them
could understand how Steams would
say. as Orchard said he did, that they
could not have been better. . .
The reading of the Hawkins letter
afforded a good deal of amusement to
the audience, and especially to the law
yers, some of Richardson's colleagues
in this case apparently having diffi
culty to restrain their laughter. Or
chard had testified that he had only a
slight acquaintance under the name of
Orchard with Hawkins when he went
to the lawyer and asked for a recom
mendation as Thomas Hogan. The let
ter that Hawkins wrote In response to
the Inquiry of Steams was an. excel
lent specimen of the general recom
It assured the life insurance 'agent
tliat he had known Hogan for a "con
siderable period of time," and added,
happily, "I esteem him in every way ta
a man of integrity. , His habits are of
the best," continued Hawkins, enthu
siastically. But an element of caution
perhaps intruded itself at that point,
and he inserted the qualifying phrase,
•as far as I have had opportunity to
observe tbem." Then, however.
Lawyer Hawkins made up for^that
slight tempering of his. indorsement by
the generous addition • that . "in" general
I know nothing ..whatever detrimental
to h\s character.". He closed his letter
with an expression of his pleasure at
writing .It saying, "I am glad to , recom
mend him for a position."
Even Haywood smiled sardonically
when this letter was read. Richardson
glanced -around at the • newspaper men
with a sickly grin on his face and Nu
gent and Dafrow had trouble trying: to
hide their amusement. Pettibone took
a. different view of; the-/, request of
Steams from " that of Hawkins. Os

Judge Lawlor Is Impatient
Because Attorneys Do
Not Agree
Must Be Prepared to State
Positions Definitely
.This Morning
S*plit Is on Eligibility of
Grand Juror Gordon
to Serve
Members of counsel .for Louis
Glass and the indicted officials of the
United Railroads . were ordered yes
terday to come into court this morn
ing Uap a final attempt at reaching
an agreement on stipulation of mat
ters of fact, prior to beginning the
examination of Jiie grand jurors to
Owing to unfavorable delays in the
preparation of the draft of a proposed
stipulation it could not be delivered
to counsel for. the defendants on Tues
day evening, and when the parties ami
counsel gathered In Judge Lawlor's
: court yesterday morning it was but to
report' that no 'progress had been made.
The court * expressed his . annoyance
and ,QrdeFed~ih**a.ttorneys to get to
gether prior 'to 2:30 o'clock; when he
met .them* again. An hour before the
arrival of -the court the 'prosecution
submitted copies of the proposed,stip
ulation, to Attorneys T. C. Coogan, for
Glass; Stanley Moore, for the United
Railroads officials, and Louis Hoefier
for the Parkside officials.
The arrival of the judge found the
defendants not ready to agree to tha
stipulation and demanding further de
lay. Coogan told the court he would
consult immediately with Delmas, hi*
associate, and endeavor to notify the
court of his decision in the morning. Ho
said he had arranged for a consulta
tion with Assistant District Attorney
Harrison and Invited the attorney for
Calhoun, Mullally, Ford Abbott
to attend. Moore urged another impor
tant engagement, and the court closed
the fruitless proceedings by directing
interested counsel to appear in . his •;
court this morning prepared to agree
or. definitely disagree.
.. The draft of stipulation presented by
the prosecution embraces all the facts
of, record-in connection with th« draw
ing of the grand Jury list for 1906.
The defendants are asked to agree that
a list of 144 names was regularly
drawn by the court in 1906; that a
grand Jury was impaneled in April.
1906; that the box containing the list
was burned In the April fire and that
the box was created anew by the order
of court directing the rewriting of the
names. '
The rock upon which the opposing
counsel splits .is the eligibility of
Grand Juror Gordon. When the Bren
