Through; llawloy. tlio senior of tho group of prosecutor, tlio stato today nmdo tho opening atntcraont ngainst Haywood, ant ti;cn began tho presentation of tes timony by which it hopes, to prove tho iniir:icnt. Tti opening statement waa a broad, iweepng arraignment of tho leaders of tlu. Western Federation, who arc (bargcil with plotting wholesale mur der a hiring assassins, all in a giant conspiracy of vengeanco upon persons who obstructed their way, to destroy c-nwi'on by terrorism and to control ,ie political destinies of communities covered by tho organization. It charges a widespread conspiracy dating in in tcptno from tho north Idaho disturb ances fifteen years ago,, ijpwn to tho murder of Steunenborg, whoso mur dered victims by bullet and bomb num Icr scores. Hawley declared that wherever the federation has been in control there had been loft a trail of blood to mark their operations. Of their hired assassins ho. cried: To them murder becamo a trade and assassination a means of living." Charges Many Things As to tho alleged general conspiracy Hawley said: "It has boon a part of their object ssd policy to control politics in various toctions whoro thoy lived, whoro thoir organization and their subordinate I:tlges had control. This conspiracy, this collusion, these crimes, this under standing between leaders of tho organi zation, togothor with some that woro associated with thorn in a subordinate role, togaiher with .others thqt on tho outside played into their hands, who were cf necessity brought into their confidence, has, as I stated before, caused death and has been tho real causo of the death of Stcuncnberg. I will say wo expect to prove, and I tav- been exact in tho matter, that t:s is not the only object of this or ganization; that, although persons com posing the executive committee, as far as their personality is concerned, have clanged at various times, their objects anil the ideas of tho leaders of the to-jy have novor changed. By mutual agreement and understanding of these leaders at the .very inception of tho crganization, certain objects were aimed a, and it has always been tho object cf tho inner circle' of tho organization b ac-complish them. Wo will provo to pa that at tho inception of this organ naticD a conspiracy was formed by cm pying desperate criminals to commit carders and other atrocities and crimes by unusual and alarming methods tgamst those who in their official posi tion refused to bo influenced by their wishes and thoso who in privnto life isa counter to their interests. What State Will Provo VU will go further and provo as a rart ,f this msn that the lenders of this federation have for more than eight years made a record for deeds of vi-j.en -e that their chosen mothods and customs have left a trail of blood in niaing sections of this entire coast H&ro they wero in control.

Defense Objects Counsol for tho dofenso opened firo boforo tho utntomont had proceeded ten minutes nnd a repetition of objection from thorn led to throo or four sharp exchanges. Thoy protestod against tho charge that tho federation is guilty of " scores of murders" and to tho asser tion that tho conspiracy oxtended back to tho first troublo in North Idaho, and thoy accused Hawloy of arculnc tho caso in tho opening statomont. They dotted tho records with exceptions or overruled objections nnd finally got a ruling by which thoy could protect their rights ngainst tho whole stato mont. Tho nvnllnblo supply of witnesses for tho stato unexpectedly ran short, caus ing an adjournment at 3 p. m. Tho witnesses today woro nil from Caldwell nnd thoso who did not toll of tho crimo itself woro callod to locato Orchard, who wont to tho town as Thomas Hogan, and to show that throo months boforo tho crimo John T. Simp kins, n member of tho oxecutivo board of tho Wcstorn Federation, joined Or chard and lived with him sovornl days iu tho snmo room. Tho First Witness C, F. Wayne, who passed through the gnto twonty minutes before Stonnon borg was blown up, told of tho explo sion, tho shocking condition of tho vic tim when ho, responding to Mts. Steun enborg 'a calls, ran to him. J. W. Gue, tho surgeon, described tho body. Ho found the leg bones broken to fragments by tho groat forco of tho explosion, whilo tho skin that covered them was unmarked. .Vohn C. Bice, N. S. Ellis nnd A. Bnl Inntino, residents of Caldwell, hud traced Orchard nbont town at various times before and after the crinio, nnd then came Julian Stounenborg, tho son of tho dead governor, to toll how Or chard, three days boforo the murder, had inquired of him about his father's business. Julian Stounonberg is a strong and well sot up youth with light hair. Ho took tho stand very bravely, but when Senator Borah began question ing him a cloud of pain passed over his faco and ho shielded his oyes, evidently to keep bnck the tears. -He told of meeting Orchard, thon known ns Ho gan, at tho local railroad depot three days boforo tho crime, tolling him that his father would bo homo tho following Friday. He said ho was on his way homo with his undo and was two blocks behind his father when the explosion occurred. Traced Orchard and Simpkins L. J. Bowman, James Russell and 8tovo Dcmpsoy, proprietors of tho Pa cific hotel at Caldwell, traced tho move ments of Orchard and Simpkins. The latter was identified by a photograph which will bo tho first exhibit ottered in evidence byt tho state. Tho witness identified the hotel register where Or chard, as Hogan, nnd Simpkins as Sim mons, signed their names November 3, 1905. It was marked for identifica tion. Tho defenso objected to practic ally all of tho days testimony except ing that relating to tho death of Steu nenborg, on tho ground thnt it was im material and in no .way connected with tho dofendnnt. Several conversations of Orchard were objected to on the ground that they wero in no way bind ing upon tho defendant. Judgo Wood, however, permitted all testimony to stand on the undertaking of tho prose cution to show later tho connection. When court sits at U o'clock tomorrow there will bo further testimony as to tho events at Caldwell and then Or chard will tako tho stand. Orchard is to be brought from tho penitentiary in tho forenoon and turned over to Sheriff Hodgin until he has been examined nnd cross examined to tho satisfaction of both sides. Ho will bo a close coll neighbor in tho jail to tho men whoso lives ho may swear away, but it is likely that thoy will not get even a glimpso of him during his stay there. ORCHARD IS BROUGHT TO BOISE PROM PEN BOISE, Idaho, Juno 4. Orchard, tho Folf-confcssed murderer of Steunenborg, was brought into Boise this evening from tho Idaho penitentiary.

This is tho first timo Orchard has been out of tho penitentiary since ho was brought from Caldwell. On tho trip tonight ho was accompanied by Warden Whitney. Notwithstanding re ports of possible violonco to Orchard on tho part of friends of Haywood, tho, prisoner was surrounded with but littlo precnution during his drive into tho city.
