ORCHARD MAY BE INSANE.
Late Evidence Secured to Prove That
Boasting of Crime Is Hereditary.
Boise, Idaho. —The defense will en
deavor to prove that Harry Orchard
has a mania for boasting of the com
mission of serious crimes with which
hi: was never connected. In addition
to the evidence already submitted u
the Jury to sustain this evidence, Clar
ense Darrow has secured what he con
siders Important data showing that
Orchard’s maternal grandfather was
jossessed of the same mania, and
finally hanged himself.
The following letter received by Mr.
Darrow will show the foundation for
(L se allegations:

PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT NOT DIS
TURBED.
His Faithful Secretary Tells All Call
ers to “Write It.”
Oyster Bay. N. Y. —President Roose
velt is more fully realizing his desire
for freedom from official cares and
pressure from political personages
than he or those charged with the re
sponsibility of making the President's
vacation a success had hoped.
For a month Secretary Ix>eb has
made effectual use of the two words It
which he has trimmed his vocabulary.
“Write it." No matter how important
one may think he is. how pressing may
be the business, or whether one ap
plies in person, by letter, telegraph or
telephone to arrange an Interview at
Sagamore Hill, in every instance one
gets a reply In the summer vocabulary
of the secretary. "White It,” and It Is
I-oeb's most Important business to
mean those words every time he say*
them. If a visitor should belong to the
numerous and common variety of hand
shaker, he leaves the blockaded portals
of Oyster Bay repeating to everyone
that “The President really wanted »o
see me, but I»eb wouldn’t let him.” If
a politician with a “pull” calls, he usu
ally takes one of the seventeen daily
trains back to New York and denies
with all the positiveness that the seo
retary has used to him, that he ever
was In Oyster Bay In his life.
This year's plans, which are to per
mit the President's governing hand T,
control with ever so light a touch until
September has departed, have resolved
practically all of the difficult problems
of giving the President of the United
States a real vacation. With the ex
ception of an hour or so a day with
the routine official matters, he is com
pietely free to recreate or to meditate.
But with all there Is a routine anl

Elaborate Preparations for Midsunn
/nor Outing at Sulphur Springs.
The date and place ha*
nitely selected for the annual summer
meeting of the Colorado State Edito
rial Association. The date is July 22d
and 23d and the place Is Hot Sulphur
Springs' J. W. Kelley, president of
the Denver Press Club, had communi
cation by wire with Mayor D. P. How
ard of Hot Sulphur oprlngs yestereday
( a nd concluded the matter definitely.
Mr. Kelley Is chairman of the commit
-1 tee of arrangements for the mldsum
: mer meeting. Lute Wilcox of Field
and Farm and J. J. Barkhausen of the
Colorado Democrat are the other two
members of the committee.
: it was planned early this year to ac
i cept the invitation of General Traffic
Manager W. F. Jones of the Moffat
i road to go into the new region along
the Moffat road for the midsummer
meeting. At first it was believed the
] meeting could be held as far West as
Steamboat Springs, but it was found
that a fifty-mile stage drive was not
j suited to the needs ol the meeting and
' the place of meeting was changed to
Hot Sulphur Springs. The members
of the association will meet in Denver
I Sunday. July 21st and will leave the
following morning over the Moffat
road for Hot Sulphur Springs. They
will reach that point at 2:30 In the af
ternoon and will spend the remainder
of the day and until noon the follow
ing day there. Leaving Hot Sulphur
Springs at noon July 23d. they will
reach Denver that evening at 6:30.
The following telegram was received
by President Kelley of the Denver
Press Club:
“Hot Sulphur Springs guarantees
big trout dinner, horse racing, bucking
contests, games, sports, etc., for enter
tainment of the State Editorial Asso
ciation. and cordially Invites all edi
tors of the state to come. The more
the better. There will be free hot sul
phur baths to all delegates. We are
a hot town and will give you a hot
time.”
To this telegram the committee
made answer that the editors would
move en masse on the metropolis of
Middle park July 22d. Arrangements
will be made to care for 200 editors.
Hot Sulphur Springs is one of the
most enterprising towns in the state,
and Is situated 110 miles from Denver
on the Moffat road. It has some of the
most wonderful sulphur springs in the
world. Kremmling and the other new
towns of the region known as Middle
park Join in the celebration. A suit
able program will be prepared for the
midsummer meeting by the editors,
but his will not take more than a few
hours each day. The rest of the time
will be given over to merrymaking. It
Is believed the meeting will be better
attended than any that has ever been
held In the state. Editors’ wives are
included in the invitations. Secretary
J. T. Lawless of the State asocia
tlon will get out a supplemental an
nouncement in a few days, telling of
the change of program from the Routt
county trip, which filled the hearts of
the editors who regard stage ride*
with such trepidation.
HOLDUPS SHOOT BRIDEGROOM.
Denver Thugs Commit Dastardly
Crime and Escapes.
Denver. —Shot through the head by
two boy highwaymen at 10 o’clock
Sunday night because he refused to
give up his wallet. John Cohan, aged
forty-three, 1378 Irving street, may die.
The young holdup men escaped. They
were last seen running past Bloomfield
park.
Picked up nearly llfless, Cohan
was taken to the county hospital,
where an examination showed his
chances for recovery doubtful. One
bullet entered the center of the Jaw.
took a course toward his right ear
and lodged In his neck. Another
pierced his right leg Just above the
knee.
Cohan, married three weeks ago.
was on his way home with groceries
he had purchased of Philip Adelman,
2534 West Colfax. Directly opposite
2787 West Fourteenth street, two men.
about twenty-two years of age. stepped
from behind a dark fence and ordered
Cohan to produce his money.
He hesitated and two guns were
flashed in his face. Frightened, he
cried for help and simultaneously two
shots were heard. There came an
other wild scream. When residents
flocked out to see what had happened
they found him In a pool of blood. He
gurgled “robbers” and said he had
been robbed. Then blood gushed from
his mouth and he was unable to make
himself understood.
After Jackson Hole Rustlers.
Thermopolis, Wyo.—Three Wyoming
sheriffs, Felix Alston of Big Horn
county, Charles Stough of Fremont
county, and Frank Smith of Johnson
county, have disappeared Into the
rough country between this place and
the Jackson Hole, while on the trail
of a gang of horse thieves, and no
news is expected from them until
they either run down their quarry or
leave the trail at the Idaho line.
Horse stealing has been frequently
reported bv ranchmen of Johnson, Big.
Horn and Fremont counties, and the
depredations generally have been
traced to one gang, of which it Is al
leged Walter Yos Is the leader.
All efforts to arrest members of
this gang have failed because of the
thieves' thorough knowledge of the
country and their trick of jumping
from one county to another, and occa
sionally into Idaho or Montana.
Several days ago the officers picked
up the trail of the thieves east of this
place, followed It to Thermopolis and
thence westward Into the rough coun
try beyond which lies Jackson Hole.
The country in which Alston,
Stough and Smith are now seeking the
Yos gang is that made famous by the
story of the Virginian's pursuit of
Trampas, Shorty, et-al. The Virgin
ian and his tenderfoot friend rode
through the same section that the
sheriffs are now traversing, and came
out at the same objective point—the
Jackson Hole. Whether or not the
three genuine thief hunters will have
the luck of the fictional ones and run
down their quarry In the beautiful
Jackson Hole Is a matter of conjec
ture.
May Have Been Murdered.
Florence, Colo. —William A. McMil
lon was found dead by the main lino
of the Denver & Rio Grande railroad.
The body was found shortly after No.
10 had left the Florence depot, and it
Is not known whether he fell or was
thrown from the train.
The bruises upon the head and body
which caused death could have been
made by falling from a moving train.
It is said that McMlllon cashed a Den
ver & Rio Grande pay voucher in a
oaloon here earlier in the evening.

Arrest of Prominent Witnesses On
Charge of Perjury Put New Life
Into the Trial.
Boive. Idaho.—The defense in the
Haywood came to a sudden
last Saturday whe::t he attorneys an
nounced that with 'he ending of Hay
wood's testimony it would rest thi
case. The state ax once began its re
buttal, and created a sensation when
one witness on th> stand confessed to
participatioh In a labor riot resulting
In the death of two men. the record of
conviction of murder in the second de
gree of a witness for the defense was
introduced and the proof of another
kaving been sent to the Insane asylum
upon the information of his neighbors
vac offered, and its admissibility was
argued Finally, shortly after court ad
journed for the day. information was
rworn and a warrant for perjury is
sued in a magistral court against Dr
I L. McGee, a ph'-eician. of Wallace.
Idaho, who was one of the witnesses
for the defense in the discrediting of
Orchard. Sheriff J. W. Bailey of Sho
shone county, who swore to the in
formation agains' McGee, left for Wal
lace and will arrest McGee on arrival
there.
A crowded courtroom, somewhat
bored by legal commonplice. sprang to
strained attention at the close of the
second session of the Haywood trial
when William Dewey, a witness in re
buttal for the state, confessed to active,
armed participation in the destruction
of the Bunker Hill and Sullivan con
centrator at Wardner on April 29. 1899
when two men were killed and a mob
of 1,000 men participated In the riot.
Harry Orchard commenced his series
cf great crimes at Wardner. He con
fessed to lighting one of the fuses that
rtarted the explosion, and he swoi e
that William F. Davis, known among
his fellows as Big Bill” Davis, led
the mob.
Witnesses for the defense have
sworn that Orchard was not at Ward
uer on April 29th Davis himself h&3
t worn to having been elsewhere and
positively denied any connection with
the crime for complicity in which Paul
Corcoran was tried and convicted, and
some ten or a dozen men. including
Davis himself. wers Indicted by the
grand Jury- Davis on the stand ad
mitted that he went into hiding imme
diately after the rioting.
Dewey swore that not only did "Big
Bill” accompany the mob to Wardner.
but that he served out guns, rifles and
ammunition to the union men gathered
in the Union hall at Burke before they
went to Wardner. and was one of tho
leaders of the column that advanced
gd tfce concentrator before the work of
destruction commenced.
Eight years have now elapsed since
(hat day of meeting, the consequences
cf which was the calling out of the
United States yooftS at (he request of
Governor Sreurteriberg. the establish
ment of the military bullpen and the
foundation was laid, according to tho
prosecution in the present trials, for
the animus on the part of the Western
federation of miners against Steunen
berg. resulting In his assassination by
Orchard In 1905. FroS that time no
witness except Orchard has been foun l
tc tell the story or incriminate him
self until this afternoon, when Dewey,
now a resident of Goldfield, Colorado,
made his confession.
With eyes downcast and fingers
nervously picking at the braining
around the rim of a gray sombrero,
Dewey told It all. Repeatedly he was
requested to raise his voice, and with
a quick glance at counsel he complied,
only tc sink back into an almost Inaud
ible tone. Under the provocation of a
sneering cross-examination by E. F.
Richardson, he rallied and even be
came combative, but throughout th3
trial he gave evidence of a certain re
morse.
Under the same cross examination
ke told why he had come to Boise to
confess at this time after eight years
of silence. He had been a miner In
Colorado for seven years, he said, and
fctd even risen sufficiently in the re
gard of other to be elected town
marshal of Goldfield.
"What promise of Immunity from
punishment was given you. before you
oecided to make this confession of
crime?”
“What reward will you receive?”
“What induced you to raaks this
statement after all these years?" were
’ some of Richardson's questions.
“None,” was the laconic reply to the
first two questions, but to the last one
the witness answered:
“I read Orchard's confession.”
“You saw how well he was treated
here and decided to get a little of it?”
sneered Riehardson.
"It was nothing of the kind,” re
sponded Dewey, quietly. "I thonght I
ought to help along the doing of Jus
tice.”
Dewey left the stand a few minutes
before the regular hour of adjourn
ment. He iR a tall, loose-jointed man.
with deep set eyes and a great Roman
nose, dogged and determined in man
ner, but with a sense of humor that
came out occasionally while he was on
the stand. Mr. Hawley who Is conduct
ing the rebuttal examination, blunt and
straightforward himself, does not
spare one of his own witnesses any
more than those of the other side.
When I«ewey dropped his voice at one
period of the examination by the prose
cution he was chewing a quill tooth
pick and leaning back in his chair.
Hawley broke In and shouted:
"Speak up. Mr. Dewey. Take that
toothpick out cf your mouth and sit
up.”
“AH right," said Dewey, straighten
ing himself in the chair; “hut I would
like to have a drink of water.”
It was given to him by one of Hay
wood’s counsel.
Dr. I. L. Gee, against whom a war
rant for perjury was issued, is a
wealthy resident of Wallace. At one
time he conducted a hospital there. In
his testimony for the defense he swore
that Orchard was in Wallace in July
and August of 1904. It was at this
time that th<- state claims, and Orchard
himself says he was in Denver plan
ing the Bradley murder.
One of the witnesses swore that Or
chard was at his hotel in Denver in
July and August, 1904. McGee was also
one of the witnesses who swore that
Orchard was at -Vullan on the day of
the explosion at the Bunker Hill and
Sullivan concentrator.

Couldn’t Understand the Taste of

Two men were discussing the var

in such variety and abundance.
One, a grocer, said, “I frequently try
a package or so of any certain article

that way sometimes form a different

cluded that my taste was different
from that of the customers who bought
It right along.
“A day or two after, I waited on a
lady who was buying a 25c package
and told her I couldn’t understand how
one could fancy the taste of Postum.
“ 'I know Just what is the matter,’
she said, ‘you put the coffee boiler on
the stove for just fifteen minutes, and
ten minutes of that time it simmered,
and perhaps five minutes it boiled;
now if you will have It left to boil full
fifteen minutes after it commences to
boll, you will find a delicious Java-like
beverage, rich in food value of gluten
and phosphates, so choice that you
will never abandon it, particularly
when you see the great gain in health.’
Well, I took another trial and sure
enough I joined the Postum army for
good, and life seems worth living since
I have gotten rid of my old time stom
ach and kidney troubles.”
Postum is no sort of medicine, but
pure liquid food, and this, together
with a relief from coffee worked the
change. “There’s a Reason.”
