BOISE. Idalo, July 29. Charles H.
Hojcr precldent of tho Western Fed
tration and co-defendant with William
D Haywood, wLo was acquitted yester
day was ordered released on $25,000
kail today by Judgo Wood, who pre
sided at tho Haywood trial. Attorneys
for the Federation expected to have
tie bond ready for filing tonight, but
tit arrangements have not been wholly
lozpleted at a lato hour and Moycr
has rasigned himself to another night in
jaiL He probably will bo released to
morrow and loavo within twenty-four
tocrs for his Lome in Denver.
Ko application for bail was inado in
the caso of George A. Pcttibone, the
ttud of the alleged conspirators, but a
rsotion was mado for a speedy trial, and
tie case was ordered set down for Tues
day OUober 1. Counsel intimated to
day that they might apply for a bond
for Pettibone later, but it h not be
hoved the state's attorneys will consent.
It ha been generally claimed that the
state has moro incriminating evidence
gainst Pcttibone than any of tho oth
ers, while it has been generally con
ceded tho caso against Moycr is tho
weakest of tho three.
The defense in tho Haywood caso ad
Wtted that U.cro aro a number of
&ngs for Pcttibcno to explain as to
lis association with Harry Orchard and
ending money to Urn, but they said it
Tonld bo timo enough to deal with
ttese matters when Pottibono himself

"The Statosman, in common with tho

"But tho caso has been decided by an
Idaho jury under tho facts as they

as in all cases fully submitted to our
constituted tribunals of justico, to ac

to our courts which, as a necessary atti
tude, if our rights aro to bo protected,
and peaco and ordor and good will aro

Tho Evening Capital says:
"Thero was bound to bo keen disap

have been. But tho jury which tried
tho caso was ono WI1030 honesty, integ
rity, ability and good citizenship no ono
doubtod, and now that they expressod
themselves it will como with as llttlo
grace to complain of thoir decision.
"Thero Is but ono thing to do and
this is to let the Haywood caso die
from tho public mind as quickly as pos
sible. In tho minds of somo it will lin
ger as a dream, but as a torriblo night
mare in tho body politic of tho state.
In tho minds of others it must remain as
a living Ho to tho arguments ami doc
trines of that political school which
teaches tho doctrino of discontent."
Tho jurors in tho case continued pub
licly to discuss tho part thoy played.
Samuel D. Oilman, tho last man to voto
for acquittal, said: "Thero has been
published ono statement that I want to
correct. One of tho jurors is quoted as
saying tho Jury spent a long, dlsagrce
ablo and tiresome night in order to con
vince two Jurors that tho defendant
was not guilty. I want to say that they
never did convince us. I beliovcd he
was guilty and I still believe ho Is guil
ty, and I want tho world to know it. I
simply acquiesced to a vordlct of ac
quittal because I felt I could not do
othcrwlso after I found tho entire
eleven other jurors consenting to tho
verdict, but not because I was con
vinced that I was right. Kindly make
tho correction for me."
Juror A. H. Burns said: "I was final
ly convinced when we left tho cqurt
room that tho first ballot would show
a vote for conviction. X still retain the
belief that Haywood was guilty and
only changed my voto becauso it struck
mo that if tho'ovidenco presented left
eight men unconvinced of tho guilt of
tho, defendant, it would be impossible
to get twelve men in another trial; that
it would bo better to settle tho question
by acquiescing in their decision."
BOISE, Idaho, July 28. When Or

"Woll, I did my duty and told the
truth.' I could do no more. I am ready
to take any punishment meted out to

lows: ""Inasmuch as you aro a member of
the stato central committee, I take the
liberty of addressing you and all tho
Republican voters of Ohio upon tho
questions brought to our attontion.
"At tho Dayton convention last year
it was proposed by a great number of
tho delegates to indorse a candidate for
tho presidency. I opposed the .proposi
tion on the ground thnt it was not only
premature, but alo tiio delegates lmd
not been chosen with reference to thnt
question. Their action could not bo
binding upon tho next stato convention.
The present stato eommittco is com
Ioscd of only twenty-ono members, cho
sen by that convention. Thoy wero not
selected with reference to presidential
preferences. They wero chosen to bo
simply tho machinery of tho party. The
solection of a candidate for the party
is not ono of their duties Their action
now in indorsing a candidate for the
president would not, as. Governor Harris
woll says, be binding uKn anybody,
not oven themselves, but would be
wholly outside their jurisdiction and tin
authorized. It is only the samo as the
individual opinions of so many citizens
of tho state.
Question for tho Pcoplo
"On a number of occasions hereto
fore I stated that so far as I had been
individually concerned as a citizen of
Ohio, and a member of tho Republican
party, I did not think- tho question
should bo determined except as in ac
cordance with tho expressed wish of tho
Republican voters of Ohio, and that in
view of controversies thnt have arisen
tho voters should bo given an opportun
ity to be heard beforo any action is
taken by any committee or any body
not chosen by tho people.
"In view of what Governor Harris
has seen fit to say, I trust it not out of
place- for mo to call attention to my
former expressions. I do not think
thq stnto committee hns any authority
to pass on nny such subject and donot
think it would promote party harmony
for it to undertake to antieipato Repub
lican voters by speaking in advance of
any action by them.
"I do not think anybody would re
gard such an action ns binding. I am
sure I would not. I do not think it
i'ould in any way promote party good
in our state or ndvnuco tho cause of
Republicanism either in Ohio or else
where. J think it prematura and bad
policy to undertake to inject tho presi
dential question and national politics
in Ohio polities at a timo when wo
are concerned with municipal election.
It should bo tho desire of ovory Repub
lican to subordinate everything that
might stand in tho way of united lmr-

"I shall nt thnt time, as I have here
totore announced, request the stato

wo free ourselves entirely from tho
oft-repeated charges that havo been
mado .with too much ground for them.
thnt tho action of our stato conventions
in recent years has not been governed
by the voters, who arc supposed to be
represented by tho delegates, but by
tho committees, bosses and small cote
ries, with selfish intorests in view. Wo
had an admonition of warning that tho
tho pcoplo aro justly displeased with
such practices. Wo shouljl not stub
bornly" lisregnrd theso wnrnings.
-yTJaarn from tho newspapers other
wise, as reason for tho proposed action,
that Secretary Tnft is tho only candi
date OBio hns for tho presidency; that on
such account, from tho sentiments of
stato pride, wo should unite in his sup
port, and for that reason tho eommittco
should tako tho proposed action so tho
whole country may bo advised what
Ohio -intends to do noxt year.
.. .Reason for Thoir Madness
.SJI see it stated almost ovory day
injtlio newspapers as a reason fpr tho
claim that Ohio has only ono 'candidate
for tho presidency, is that I havo Tiot
at any timo announced my candidacy
for tho office. It is true I never mado
such an announcement. A candidate for
tho presidency must assume first that
the great nnd serious responsibility of
tho leading party, and if successful, ns
we hopo and expect to be, ho must tlion
immune tho grave and serious responsi
bilities of administering tho executive
oflico. These responsibilities aro so
gravo and serious thnt any man might
well feel highly complimented and
greatly honored to havo his fellow citi
zens name him in such connection, but
at tho same timo they aro so gravo
and serious that any ordinary man
might woll hesitate to proclaim himself
qualified for such a responsibility, or
profor at least to wait until urged by
his party associates to take upon him
self such responsibility,
A Bid for Himself
"Such n position is at least mora in
kooping with tho higk dignity of tho
ollice. Besidos, it gives tho party asso
ciates aa opportunity to doclaro their
deliberations an unbinsed, unembar
rassed judgment which ho should bo
willing to both wait for and abide by.
"It is because I entertain opinions
of this kind that I havo not mado any
auuouiicciiioiit of my candidacy for nny
oilico. Jn view of what may be inferred
from theso expressions, I do not deem
it ncccssnry that I should. But this is
not a matter to bo settled by tho senti
monts of stnto pride, commendable as
thoy arc.
Believes in Regulating Trusts
"I refer to tho regulation of tho
rail roads, trusts and corporations en
gaged in interstate commorco and tho
largo aggregations of capital, for on
that point there is no substantial dif
ference of opinion among Republicans
except as to tiio methods ,that aro to be
resorted to for such regulation. I be
lieve in Mich regulation and 1 was ono
of the first advocates, but I always ad
vocated methods that aro consistent
with tho constitution and the spirit of
our institutions. In this" connection, I
am happy to be nblo to point to the
fact that I helped, as one of tho sub
committee of three to frame and put
into tho present form tho Klkins law,
which is now universally conceded to
bo tho most effective and expeditious
that has over been enacted on the sub
ject; worth, measured by practical re
sults, more than ail other such statutes
Ho Don't Want Revision Downward
"The question I refer to is tho tariff
question. Every Republican has a rfght
to espouse nny view he may entertain,
aad inasmuch as Governor Harris rep-,
rcsentsisuch as is of his view, I do not
wonder ho prefers Secretary Taft as
candidatoifor presidency, for on a num
ber of occasions, Secretary Taft has
taken pains to announce that ho is in
favor of nn immediate revision of our
tariff. I observe also that the most
leading supporters of Secretary Taft in
our stato entertain similar views, ac
cording to expressions I havo seen at
tributed to .them in tho newspapers,
notably among them Ex-Governor Her
rick and Theodore E. Burton.
Taft and Tariff Revision
"When, therefore, we aro asked to
commit ourselves to the candidacy of
Secretary Taft wo must do it with
full knowledge that ho entertains the
views expressed on the subject; that if
wo mako him our candidate tho cam
paign of necessity must bo n campaign
for a revision downward in the tariff
schedules under which the country has
been brought to nn unprecedented but
universal prosperity. It may bc that
some duties are too high, and some too
low, and there may come a time, and
there will, no doubt, when there ought
to bo some changes made, but in view
of tho results wo aro enjoying, I do not
think wo should enter upon such work
at this time. T do not believe wo should
discredit what the Republican party has
done for tho country under policies rep
resented by the Dingley tariff law by
makingour campaign next year an at
tack upon that statute, especially until
wo have somo specification as to what
duties arc to bo changed, with reasons
to bo offered in support of such changes.
"If wo postpono tho matter of Bot
tling our preferences ns to a candidate
until wo can go beforo tho people and
dibcuss tho question, as wo will have an
opportunity to do if wo select dele
gates to tho noxt convention at the pri
maries, our respective views can bo pre
sented, tho pcoplo can judgo between
us and thus act intelligently. I tlunk
this much is due to the farmers and
wage workers ns woll ns to tho manu
facturers and other business men of tho
stato who necessarily will bo immediate
ly seriously affected by nny kind of
tariff rovision.
Won't Support Taft
"If we aro given time to discuss tho
subject as I propose, I may change my
views about it without furthor ndvices.
It is impossible for me, notwithstanding
tho high character and great ability
and tho distinguished sorvices of Secre
tary Taft, to favor his candidacy."

Investigation of Columbia Dis
aster Brings Out Some Star

Lives of Pessengers Are Not
Considered in the Effort of
the Steamship Company to
Get Best Speed Possible,
By Associated Press.
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., July 29.
Tho responsibility of companies which
by the iron schedules compel tho mas
ters of ships to go at'a speed that thoir
own consciences tell them is unsafe,
was the fenturo of the Columbia wreck
investigation beforo Captain Birming
ham today.
Second Officer Agerup's testimony es
tablished moro clearly than beforo tho
fact that captains arc compelled to run
ships ut full speed along tho dnngcrous
coast in foggy weather and1 in a course
navigated by many vessels.
"Is it tho usual practice on this
coast to go at full speed!" asked Cap
tain Birmingham.
Forced to Go Fast
"The captain always slowed up when
he heard a steamer ahead," was the
answer, Tho question ns to whether
it was necessary to go at full speed in
order to mako the schedulo elicited the
comment that there was a certain time
allowed for the round (rip of coast
steamships and that it was necessary to
arrivo at a certain hour to go in on
the tide and avoid delay.
"Did the ship. never slow up unless
there was a steamer ahead!" asked tho
"I can't recall thnt wo over did. It
might bo once fn a while, perhaps, es
pecially in very bad weather," said
Although tho attorney for tho com
pany succeeded in establishing that the
captain never gave the order mentioned,
he made no. effort to shake the testi
mony that dangerous runs aro made to
keep tho vessel on its schedule and that
the moral suasion of the company was
the reason for them.
Indians Did Not Show
Tho Indian devil ami war dance
scheduled to take place at tho ball park
did not como off Sunday night owing to

Tho management claims that the inter

There is no light along this thorough

discomforts of walking in darkness is
tho danger of being run over by rail
