that union miners were whipped and
driven from Cripple Creek.
Judge Wood announced that there
would be two sessions of court instead

-and proceedings opened promptly at
nine a. m.
Dominick Flynn, who conducted a
cigar store in Mullen, Idaho, in 1899,
ewore than Orchard was in his store
flaying poker the day that the Bunker
Hill and Sullivan mill was blown up,
and Pat McHale, who gave the occu
pation of barkeeper and said he gam
bled whenever he got a chance, swore
that he sat in the game with Orchard.
Cross-examined by Senator Borah,
flynn declared he had never been
a member of the Western Federation
ef Miners or any other labor organiza
tion. He had known Orchard a year
jtnd a half, and the man often played
Voker at his place. The witness gave
the names of several persons who
were in the game the day of the ex
plosion. He never saw Orchard aft
er that day. Flynn declared he had
sot volunteered the information as to
Orchard's whereabouts. Some time
after the arrest a man came to him
and asked if it'was true that Orchard
fclayed poker in his store April 29.
One of the men who played with Or
chard was named Patrick McHale.
"Flynn said he had spoken to McHale
tebout the matter since Orchard's ar
McHale, who is a bartender in Mul
Jen, followed Flynn on the stand. He
said he played poker with Orchard in
Vlynn's cigar stare the 29th of April,
2899, and had never seen the man
On cross-examination McHale
be gambled a great deal.
"It's your profession, isn't
asked Senator Borah.
"No, sir I'm a bartender."
"How often do you gamble?" v,
"Every time I get a chance."
McHale said the poker party was
{made up of Forest Clark* now a re-,
tired mining man Col. Moore, an
(electric light and water man Dom
inick Flynn, Harry Orchard and him
eelf. Dr. McKee was in the place
'during the day, but did not play. The
Witness declared he was positive Or
chard was not at Wardner the day of
the mill explosion.
"Then," said Senator Borah, "Or
ichard his nothing to fear so far as
being mixed up in that matter was
"No, sir."
"And he had no reason to sacrifice
bis property and get out?"
"No, sir." '7
Mr. Darrow on re-direct asked:
"All the union men were arrested,
Iweren't they?"
"They arrested everybody in Mul
.... "That's all."
"Did they arrest you?" asked Sena
tor Borah.
"Or Col. Moore, or Dr. McGee?"
"Who did they arrest?"
"Well, they arrested every man in
Mullen except the saloon keepers."
Frank Hough, who testified to con
ditions in the Idaho "bull pen" and
the treatment of ?ack Simpkins,
swore^that Orchard told him at Wal
lace in the fall of 1905. that he had
fust come from Alaska, the first
mentioned case of the defense of
the supposed visit of Orchard to Alas
ka. Morris Friedman, a former em
ploye of the Plnkerton detective agen
fcy who recently left the service and
published a so-called expose of Pinker
ton methods, was called to the stand
shortly before noon.

New London, Cooou. June 28.—H£r»
vard won the freshman eight by one
and a half lengths, and Yule the
'varsity four-oared race by perhaps
ten lengths on the morning tide on the
Thames river Friday, and the result
confirmed the predictions.
Cqmlng with the great victory of a
Yale 'varsity eight Thursday night,
the win of the four Friday was a
source of gratification to Yale men
and an evidence of the efficiency ot
Coach Kennedy's training. It was an
easy race for the blue to win, while
the freshman race was a hard one for
Yale to lose and correspondingly a
trimuph for the Cambridge "Young
sters. The races were worth the see-
Both races were up stream on the

both were rowed in slow time. It was
Harvard's strength in the freshman

made the results as they were.

Defense to 8how Big- Conspiracy.
Clarence Darrow, who is conduct
ing the defense and in charge of" the
wltnessesr asserts most positively
that he proposes to go directly, if
possible, into the conspiracy of the
mine owners, and claims if he suc
ceeds in broading the scope, he will
be able to prove that a widespread
conspiracy exists. The "state in
sists that the defense muBt lay its
foundation for the proof of a general
conspiracy in the same way as was
done by their witness Orchard, and
that' separate cases do not suffice.
Darrow says that he can bring the
Plnkerton agency in as one of the
chiefs in this conspiracy, and claims
to have witnesses here who will fully
support his charges. If the court
permitB this line of defense it threat
ens a prolongation of the case, as the
state will call a large number of wit
nesses in rebuttal.
Prof. Muhsterberg of Harvard uni
versity, who has been here for the
last few days conducting an investiga
tion of Orchard and other principals
in the case in the interests of psy
chology as applied to law, had a long
interview with Orchard in -the peni
tentiary and at every opportunity has
been in the court room taking notes
and closely watching the witnesses.
He declines to give any -of his views
at this time, and says that his conclu
sions will not be reached until he has
time to go carefully over the notes'
he has taken of his observations, but
admits that the field has been the
most interesting that he has had the
opportunity of studying for some time.

New Laws Promulgated Will Assist In
Removing Grievances.
Paris, July 1.—The government
Saturday, after defeating its foes in
the chamber of deputies Friday, pro
mulgated the wine-fraud bill, which
was passed by the senate Friday
evening, and which is designed to cor
rect a number of the abuses (com
plained of by the discontented wine
growers of the south of France. The
bill, it is hoped, will go a long way
toward removing the feeling of dis
content in the recently disturbed dis
The measure, which has just be
come law requires, among other
things, that all growers make an- an
nual declaration at the mayoralty of
their commune of the acreage, cultiva
tion and total quantity of wine pro
duced and in stook, and whether it is
intended for sale or otherwise, the
government being of the opinion that
when in possession of this informa
tion it- will be in a position to keep
track of the wine from the grower to
the dealer, and thus prevent watering
or sugaring.
The finance minister is also pre
pared, as an inducement for the wine
growers, to abandon grape growing
in favor of other crops, to remit the
land taxes in such cases for five years.
The government advises the organi
zation of wine growers to regulate the
output and discontinue the manufac
ture of poor wine, and urges the grow
ers to assist the government to sup
press outside frauds by themselves ex
posing wholesale buyers who refuse
to purchase productsunless adulter
