Oscar King Davis
' BOISE; July 16. — This was a give and j
\u0084take"day forthe Haywood prosecution].
.c.nd aboutevenly dU"lded as^to time in j
those two occupations. In the mornint;
it gave the defense a line of testimony !
that put* a pale, sickly tinge on .the
ftory of'cfno of its witnesses and sharp
ly contradicted the testimony of others.
. In. the. .afternoon, however, the posi
tion was reversed and the defense,
through" Attorney Richardson, supplied
a withering,' blasting cross examina
tion that" shriveled up one of the
• state's witnesses and left not much
?inore than a ridiculous memory of him.
The witness who faded out of. the
-realm of credibility in tbe morning was
Wood, the Scotch nonunion ma!!
'\u25a0who worked a day and a half in the
Vindicator mine and told for the de
fense a wonderfully graphic story of
*the explosion that killed Beck an«l
TllcCormick. Wood's story was full of
•detail and color. He Eaw and remem
'lWred everything that morning, from
-The half box of powder sitting on the
.water barrel on the eighth level to
the revolver sticking out of Beck's
pocket and the iron guard rail' at the
sixth level.
; The first thing .that happened vto his
.Ftory today was the testimony of A_ T.
Ilolman, now manager of the Golde.i
Cycle mine at Independence, who was
the first man down the shaft of the
Vindicator after the explosion. Hol
man was then superintendent of_ the
Vindicator and was familiar with the
mine. Wood remembered the iron* rail
at the sixth level because he had looked
at it to see if there was any piece
of wire or other such material on it
Holman swore that there was no iron
Tail at the sixth level and that the
\u25a0wooden one which had been there had
"been blown- off by- the explosion. -
ORCHARD'S STORY" TRUE
Then came young Ramsey, stepson of
McCormick, who was powderman of
the Vindicator at the time of the ex
.plosion, and when he got through,
*Wood and his theory that the death of
the two men might have been an ac
cident caused by the powder . which
they- were carrying, was only a spifl
cated.collection. To begin with, there
\u25a0was no water barrel, on " the eighth
level where Wood said that he put the
half box of powder and there had been
no half box ! of powder there on. the
explosion morning. And to continue.
McCormick and Beck had not come up
the shaft from the eighth to the sixth
level, but had gone directly down from
the surface. Ramsey knew, because
he was with them at the surface when
they started; • heard their orders j to the
engineer to lower carefully, as they
wanted to stop at the sixth level; heard
the stop bell,, beard another to start
again, and saw the engineer attempt
first to lower and then, to hoist; saw
the engineer, unable to either lower or
hoist, run to the shaft, and smelled
the smoke of dynamite, * \u25a0
That put Wood's eighth level story
entirely,. out ot business. Then.Ram
eey went on and said that neither. Beck
nor McCormick carried a revolver in
the mine. He knew, because his step
father left the two revolvers \u25a0 that he
owned "at home, and Beck; changed
from his street dress to -his mine
clothes in Ramsey's room.
One other point Ramsey put in as a
clincher. The powder used by, the' Vi
ndicator was all 35 per cent. Two weeks
after the explosion he found 'near the
scene of it a piece of 40 per cent pow
der, such as was never used in the
mine.
, Richardeon went after Ramsey in
cross examination with the record of
his testimony at the coroner's inquest
and developed two or three slight dif
ferences between it and that which
Ramsey had Kiven here. The boy ex
plained the discrepancies by saying
that he was hardly responsible at that
time under the excitement of his step
j father's death and the strike conditions.
• Richardson let it go at that and went
! into other things. He asked If Ramsey
; knew of the storing of a carload of
. powder 5n the mine, and the boy said
\u25a0 that several tons had been taken down
'. for safe . keeping a day or two after
; the strike began. When the mine was
; reopened it was brought back to the
! magazine.
SHERIFF RUTAX CALLED
.This was the powder' that Orchard!
t found on. the eighth level when he was 1
, high grading after the 'strike, and I
; which he agreed with Sherman Parker
and Bill Davis to set off. But when he
went down with Joe Scholtz to cx
i plode it he couldn't find it Ramsey's
i testimony explained why he couldn't.
; Ramsey also told of finding -a buncn
< of strange powder wrapped up in a
newspaper- in the powder.- house one
: morning- and of receiving another
; bunch done up In sunny sacking from
. the foreman, .who had found It in the
' coal.
,' - Richardson scored his triumph at the
• afternoon session, when Hawley calle-1
: J..C. Rutan, the big. husky sheriff of
San Miguel county. Colo., to testlfv to
I the conditions at Telluride during : and
i preceding the strike there and the
; regime of martial law When Rlchard
i son* got his chance he promptly pu;
1 Rutan ioto the class of tbe late la-
I mented Jake Sharp, founder " of .'the
celebrated "don't remember" school.
The things that Rutan didn't remember
; were about all that happened while he
[was sheriff in Telluride. He had no
j recollection, for Instance... of having
; asked. Governor." Peabody to declare" his
! county: In* a"; state of ' insurrection and
; when Richardson read to him the mes
'\u25a0 sage that he had sent to %he governor
! at that time, it did not refresh his
\u25a0I recollection. He could not recall hay
; Ing talked with the governor by tele
j phone as to the situation in his baili
i 'wick. He couldn't' remember anything,
and If Richardson' had* asked him if
he recalled the fact that he was alive,
• it'f was . d6ubtful 'if: he. could 1 have

STUDENT HAS VISION
OF FATHER'S DEATH
Letter From England Gives
Details as Seen by Son
\ in New York
NEW YORK, July 16.— What appears
to be a remarkable psychical experi
ence has just been undergone by, Rev.
Henry Rollings, now taking a special
course in the New York ' homeopathic
medical college. In that he saw as in a
vision the death of his father, although
3,000 miles separated father, and son
at the time. Moreover, the " deathbed
scene as. 'the- young' clergyman saw it
in his mind's eye was corroborated in
every detail in a letter two weeks later
from England. \u25a0 His" father, he^ says,
was in a room he did not recognize,
surrounded by. all his relatives, except
his sister. ' ' .
'" The letter stated that the.elder Roll
ings died on the exact day and at the
exact hour that the younger. Rollings
had Ead his death pictured to him.
Not..only that, the letter said that the
elder Rollings said just before lie
passed away that he. could see his son
standing by the bedside. .
The strange room in v the vision was
explained by the statement that the
family had moved > from the old home
stead to 5 another house in Bedford
shire and' in the absence of the sister
from tbe roomj which, was explained by
by the- statement' that at the time she
was ill. . ;.

members of the 1 interstate; commerce
"commission . over- the Ilarrinvm" 'case*,
and^the. statement is '•'; made poisitively

wilt « result •, in an attack ron THarrlman's
control vof 'the * Union Pacific and the

strong, element, in; the rcommission; that
wants \u25a0 a '- test", case -made on- : Harriman' s
control; of the Southern Pacific/ They
do not relish the, disposition of a part
of the commission; headedtby Chairman
Knapp i and' Commissioner Lane," to
avpid court action - and the mild nature
of K the report displeases them. ,
>'Judge Frank B. Kellogg, special coun
sel . for,;the (commißSlon, is; understood
to \u25a0 have> made strong r- representations
to ,lhe\ president to V. the; 'effect-" '.that^ a
suit Rhbuld be brqught to end the!mag
nate's; control of the; Southern Pacific.
Thus Kellogg has suffered
aHurnlngi;down, -as his report -to * the
commission . was^ much' .more :;. radical
than tho report of 'the "commission ','lt
self.V.'i' Judge * : Kellogg , was . .convinced
there were . several r grounds on which
Harrimari could 'be "successfully at
tacked '!: "under.' the •. Sherman law, '7- the
Union . Paci fic""coritrol iof the ' Southern
Pacific^being^one; ; J';;- \' /. : - r ;-- "\u25a0
:: v Oneof the strongest reasons for post
poning 'prosecution fof 'Harriman has
been' the \u25a0 disposition of the. United
States:supreme court.-uThe court in the
Northern .-. securities' case : decided by a
vote "of > 5 to i 4., \ Judge: Brewer, who
cast the deciding vote, declared in his
opinion^ that > if; thejCombination; had
been * beneficial i to 'the. public he. would
not ; vote 'UT dissolve it. :.-' InHarriman's
case It in" claimed .that his combination
of : tho, Union and, Soiitherri Pacific "has
been, beneficial.' In, thV Interstate com
mefcei commission's! report.^ Just issued
it is admitted '.that^ he' has improved the
physical condition of the ' properties and
gives better^ service I than fever I before.
Hence it :is S pointed^, out> that If * the
government should carry a case against
Harriman ;to the '"court; It
mightf get' such a setback ; as to prac
tically, ruin the propaganda for greater
federal control; of "railroads. '. . ;
