BOISE, Idaho, July 21. Tho career of Prank Stounonberg, tho murdered governor of Idaho, was discussed at some length by Clnrence Darrow this evening in tho course of his plon in behalf of liny wood. Justifying the articles published in tho Miners Maga zine, the official organ of tho Western Federation, tho Chicago lawyer said tlio action of Stounonborg in asking for United States troops to quell the riot and establishment of martini law in 180'J was unjustifiable and had properly stirred up an intense feeling iu labor circles against the governor. Denounced Union Opposers Darrow ' argument, unfinished to night, developed into an appeal for labor as against capital, and the de nunciation of all opposed to the unions. He held tho audience startled and open mouthed as one after another tho sen timents poured from his lips. His at tack on Orchard was expected and in this respect ho fulfilled and surpassed the limit of sensation. Turned on Orchard Three hours wore given to Orchard, and it was only when vituperation, phy sical force and words were spent that Darrow turned toJIawloy, the leading counsel for the state, and the I'iukcrton detectives for somothing on which to pour tho lessor volume of his abuse. The stato of Idaho came in for a share of Darrow 's denunciation for the part it played in tho prosecution. Culture, education, wealth, each in turn were de scribed as constituting a combination against which tho workingmnn, tlio un educated and thu .poor must over be npJKiscd. Sneered at Culturo Darrow sneered at tho universities as purveyors of culture. "And what is a cultured man," ho cried, "but a cruol tyrant alwayst" Reaching the climax of his denuncia tion of sympathy for tho working class and hatred of tlio rich, ho assailed tlio constitution of the country, and criel: "The constitution I it is hero only to destroy laws made for tho benefit of tho poor." Darrow 's defense of labor unions and of union men was passionate and his eu logy of tho Western Pcdoration elo quent. Lovingly, he touched on tho beauty of self-sacrifico Xound in tho struggle for humanity, where only the workingman was found; then, with bit terest sarcasm, his voice pitched high est and both arms upraised, ho heaped abuse, on the selfish rich and upon the administration of tho stato of Idaho. Ho will conclude tomorrow. Lieutenant Wade, Formerly of Gunboat Bennington, Asks for Big Damages By Associated Press. NEW YORK, July 21. Lieutenant Charles T.
