RESTS ITS CASE.
Bruner Closes for the
WORDEN AND MIS PIPE.
Unpleasant Argument for Judge
TEXAS TELLS HIS TRUE NAME.
And States to the Court That Me
Will Be Defended by Gen
Woodland. Aug. 9.— "Texas," or Billy
Appleman, was brought into court the
first tiling this morning and arraigned.
He looked a hard case, unshaven and with
an expression of having been closely
hunted. Since his arrival here in charge
of Sheriff Harper of Modoc County he has
been kept in the County Jail, and Sheriff
Wykoff has denied to all the privilege of
seeing the prisoner. Judge Fisher asked
the prisoner what his true name was.
"My name is William Henry Appleman,"
said be firmly.
The District Attorney informed him of
his rights in the case, and lie stated that
General Hart was his attorney.
Worden at this point made his morning
speech to the court. "1 don't know why
they want to rut hypo fiends in the same
cell with respectable gentlemen," he
growled In a basso-prof undo voice, and
then recognizing the fact that he was di
rectly behind Judge Armstrong, he began
to abuse tbe Southern Pacific and to blow
whiffs of bad smoke from a corncob pipe
right across the court.
The attorneys resumed the argument
which night cut short yesterday. Alvin
Bruner opened by saying that General
Hart had asked to be shown where there
was a .panicle of evidence which con
nected the defendants with the derailing
of that train. "There is no reason for
taking the time of the court as far as
Worden and Hatch are concerned," he
said. "Their connection has been proved
beyond the shadow of a doubt. We allege
that they were all members of an unlaw
ful conspiracy to compel the Southern Pa
cific Railroad Conn to boycott Pullman.
If it is unlawful to conspire to stop Pull
man cars then these defendants are guilty
of murder. One thing only was lacking
in the way their plans were carried out,
and that was a brass band. Everything
was done by Worden and bis confederates
under the orders of Knox, Mullen and
Compton, the mediation committee,"
Counsel went on to review the evidence.
He said when Marshal Baldwin had his
interview with Harry Knox, Mullen and
Compton, Murderer Worden was present.
At this reference WordeD growled out a
protest from his corner, but paying no
ten ion to this interruption Bruner em
phasized that this one fact established the
connection of the mediation committee
with Worden. He dwelt on the arrival of
armed men from Dunsmuir, who at once"
proceeded to the A. R. U. headquarters
and stacked arms there. "The most
damnable murderous conspiracy ever
hatched In the annals of crime" is the way
Attorney Binder referred to th* strikers'
organization. He traced the missions on
which Wordeu was sent for the mediation
Committee. He went down the Sacra
mento River with a valise, which, if it had
exploded, would have sent all on board to
Worden burst out into laughter at this
point, doubted himself with mirth in his
corner and Indulged in running comments
on Mr. Burner's oratory. The attorney
dwelt on the testimony that Worden had
constantly telephoned to Harry Knox for
funds. Then Worden got a rig on an
order from Knox, who paid the expenses
of the trip.
"This man had not the brains to organ
ize this crime,'' said Bruner, pointing at
"Thank you," replied Worden, his face
wreathed in smiles, as be ceased from his
light literary bursts sufficiently long
enough to notice the attorney.
Mr. Bruner referred to the military or
ganization for the purpose of whipping
tbe soldiers. Knox, he said, had slugs and
arras scattered all over th« city of Sacra
mento. He scored what he termed General
Hart's disloyal utterances, and said the
troops were there because anarchy was
rife in the land. The citizens had been
scared by X .ox. The A. R. U. claimed
that they bad 2000 men. "To do what?"
asked Bruner; "to burn, to murder and to
destroy. Harry Knox was the head of
them. This man Read was sent from the
A. R. U. headquarters to the A. R. U.
armory, got a gun on an order and was
sent down to the trestle where No. 4 was
wrecked. Isn't this a fact connecting the
mediation committee with the crime?
What did Mr. Knox want with these guns?
1 think he wanted to go bunting, and his
game was the peaceful citizens of the
country. Tney purchased 1500 rounds of
ammunition and stole the guvs from the
Bersaglieri Guard. They were going to
slaughter the military, but when the mili
tary arrived the cur came to the front and
they were afraid."
"Who was the cur?" interrupted Gen
"Harry Knox and his associates," re
torted Bruner. "There is no doubt that
these men talked fight. The Marshal's
testimony was true, and if so Knox must
answer for it with his life. They were de
termined to force the Southern Pacific
Company to boycott Pullman. What did
you want these arms for, Harry Knox? It
was to force these people to do your will
or shoot them down In their tracks."
Then Mr. Bruner read decisions In con
spiracy cases and proceeded to review the
character of the evidence. Knox, he said,
bad taken the position of a czir and dic
tated terms. The boycott itself was un
lawful, and he quoted from the statements
made to the Citizens' Protective Associa
tion as basis for his argument as to the
ends of the mediation committee.
"Knox said lie would win bis strike by
all means," concluded Bruner. "Tbe de
railing of trains was part of these means.
Kails were taken up all over this State.
We have proved only three."
Hatch's nose began to bleed at this point
and the court adjourned for five minutes.
After recess Mr. Bruner continued. He
pointed out that as a conspiracy it was not
necessary for Kuox even to know Worden
as long as it was shown tbat Lodge 285
had conspired for unlawful purposes. Mr.
Knox bad said that be would win the fight
by "any means regardless of conse
quences." "It was not necessary to be
active in a conspiracy," said the lawyer.
"Even a passive member was equally
guilty. Has the A. K. U. assisted to bring
the real perpetrators to justice? Why do
tbey not assist tbe prosecution to ferret out
tbe real man? Why do we see Worden
and Knox whispering together in court?
Is there any attempt to bring Worden and
Hatch to justice? 1 assume that the guilt
of Worden and Hatch has been proved be
yond a shadow of a doubi. but we do not
see the A. R. U. assisting to prosecute
them and never shall."
Regarding the admission of the Willows
dispatch, which was the original cause of
argument, Mr. Bru er said: "We have
proved that a dispatch was sent by Mrs.
Seborn to John Buchanan and by John
Buchanan taken to the A. R. U. headquar
ters, and we have shown that the answer
was written by Maddel. y, acting secretary
of .the A. R. U. It should be admitted in
evidence, because it was an act of the
conspirators. It is relevant, as it shows
the character of the conspiracy. They
wanted armed assistance, to protect the
citizens of Sacramento I presume. It is
sign, by a creature of Mr. Knox with
Mr. Knox's name. The combination to
force the Southern Pacific Company to
boycott the Pullman Company is. the es
sence of the crime, and all are equal par
ticipants in a crime committed in pursu
ance of this purpose."
Mr. Bruner said it had I een proved that
the strikers had 500 stand of arms in Sac
ramento. Knox, he continued, had been
proved to have sent Worden down the
river with the purpose undoubtedly ol
blowing up the steamer that was to bring
up the troops. He sent men to Dunsmuir
and Stockton and various other places.
All the A. R. U. had a common Interest.
•'I ask Mr. Hart and Mr. Gaddis," said
Bruu. "was it not the purpose of Lodge
Xo. 255 to stop the Pullman car?, and if
they admit that purpose they admit thai
every one of these defendants should be
hanged?" He went on to review the testi
mony and said that when Mrs. Van Husen,
the fiancee of Sam Clark, described the
threatening of his life Knox, Worden,
Mullin and Compton burst into derisive
laughter in court.
''The counsel for the prosecution must
have had bad dreams last night," began
General Hartin answer. "One would be led
to believe by the assumption of counsel
that the men who joined the A. E. U. bad
done so for some unlawful purpose. He
has assumed that this organization was a
conspiracy, but not one word of evidence
has been produced of any of the facts that
he has assumed. He has assumed that it
is indisputable tbat Mr. Worden wrecked
ihat train. Yet take away the evidence of
the weeping boy _i>d there is no evidence
t < show thai Worden was in any vicinity
of the wreck. If you relieve the case of
that boy it would not be shown that Hatch
was within three-quarters of a mile of the
wreck. But, assuming that Worden and
Hatch did wreck that train where is the
evidence of an agreement between them
and Knox, Mullin ar.d Compton, or in fact
of their connivance at any illegal act. The
A. It. U. was a labir union. If I wanted
to go outside the evidence 1 might say that
from Fourth and Townsend streets had
gone forth the order to cage Mr. Knox.
Counsel says we laughed at the old lady
who was on the witness-stand. Her own
manner was her Impeachment. Letters
and telegrams were. sent. They were
within the strifce. Where is the evidence
of the formation of a conspiracy to commit
a crime? According to their own testi
mony Knox stated that he would do what
he could to preserve peace, but said he
had no control over the outside element.
The Citizens' Protective Association asked
Knox to protect the water works and he
did so. They asked for men* protect
Southern Pacific property, and the' meu
who were armed at the depot were there
to protect property from the outside ele
ment which Knox said be could not con
trol. A man came from Dunsmuir, and
was sent out with a rifle to protect railroad
property. He was driven away by men
who were at the trestle. Was this an
honest eflort of the A. K. IT. to carry out
what they said? Mr. Knox had constantly
stated that there was a dangerous ele
General Hart admitted there was a
strike for the purpose of coercing the
Southern Pacific Company to terms. He
pointed out that in the excited condition
of the country it would be dangerous to
ride on railroads, but that fact could not
connect the mediation committee with the
crime. Citizens had asked tbe mediation
committee to aid them because of* their
supposed influence over their men. Among
the 5000 men in the depot were some, who
undoubtedly had an inclination to do un
lawful acts, but that did not convict Mr.
Knox. It was necessary to prove an agree
ment to commit a crime. •If they could
show that there was an agreement between
defendants to derail that train then they
would be guilty of murder, but the fact
that they were combined to slop Pullmans
running would not implicate them in a
crime done without their authority and
without their knowledge. As to the dis
patch to Willows it should be established
first who Maddeley was. Some evidence
of a conspiracy between all the men should
first be shown. Whenever a conspiracy
b_s been established then the act of the co
conspirator would be admissible. If there
had been an agreement to derail that train
then any evidence of a coconspirator
would be admissible, but it is an absurdity
to say that a labor union was responsible
for the acts of some one of Its members.
"Look at the consequences of this argu
ment," General Hart said. "Each of tbe
2981 members of the A. R. U. in Sacra
mento is equally liable. We would have
to send to Chicago to get Mr. Debs. One
million of men or more would be responsi
ble for the death of Sam Clark. There
would not be enough graves In Yolo
County to bury the culprits. The original
purpose of the A. R. U. is to adjust diffi
culties. It is judicial in its nature. The
strike is not in its by-laws. It was decided
upon by its members undoubtedly. The
strike was not to derail trains. The strike
was for the purpose of stopping trains.
Killing engines was unlawful, but It was a
trespass. It does not convict these men of
that other crime. 'By construction this
prosecution Is striving to meet the human
desire of a corporation for rengeatice. It
is the tyranny of aggregated power and
corporate wealth and it is this power that
would try to hold these defendants respon
sible for the acts of other persons."
After the noon recess the court was
crowded, and Judge Fisher's decision was
listened to with the utmost respect by tho
large audience, who all along have mani
fested the greatest desire to obey the
Judge's behests. He said:
"I have considered the introduction of
the Willows telegram irAular from the
first. I feel incliued to'throw it out. It
is irregular and irrelevant. The prosecu
tion has shown, anyhow.' everything tbat
it desires to show already by testimony
that is In."
"You sustain the objection to this docu
ment, then?" asked Carroll Cook.
"Yes, sir," responded the court, "I do."
Expert Bush then went on with his
identification of the telegrams. General
Hart waived cross-examination. Attorney
Alvin Bruner stated that tbe case of the
prosecution was practically in.
Recess was taken, and after recess At?
torney Gaddis rose and said:
"The prosecution at this time having
rested their case, we ask for tbe discnarge
of all the defendants."
He said that no proof bad been so far
i adduced showing that the defendants bad

anything to do with the derailment of the
train. Take away the boy and nothing
would remain, argued the. attorney. The
greater part of the witnesses were not
there of their free will. The whole power
of tbe United States Government bad
been invoked to get testimony. The
whole purpose of the prosecution, he
thought, was a fishing excursion to bring
out testimony for use in other courts.
The evidence adduced was immaterial,
and great latitude was allowed by the
court. The prosecution had traced Wor
den all over the country, but counsel con
tended that this had nothiDß|to,do with
the wrecking of No. 4. £y
"We ask for the dismissal of all these
men," said. Mr. Gaddis, , "and especially
for the dismissal of the mediation com
mittee. The evidence shows that they
were arrested at the instance of the rail
road company because they were in the
way of the company resuming work. They
have raked tbe country over and brought
io bear every power, including national,
State and county power, and I say that
this is not a public prosecution, but is a
private prosecution, in which the Southern
Pacific Company is a prime factor. There
is nothing that would prove a conspiracy.
The Southern Pacific is at the back of this
prosecution. It is their trains that brine
the prosecution and all Its witnesses here."
The case was rested here, but General
Hart reserved his argument until to-day.
The following letter was received by
Attorney Bruner to-day in answer to a

Charles R. Wright. Chief.

Formal Recognition of the Ha

Washington*. Aug. 9.— A letter of con
gratulation and greeting from President
Cleveland in the name of the United
States is on the way to President Dole of
Hawaii. The recognition of the new re
public was finally decided upon this week,
and the message was framed and mailed
yesterday. A few days ago a letter was
received from President Dole conveying
the formal announcement of the procla
mation of a republic and tbe inauguration
of the new Government. The letter was
laid before the Cabinet and has been un

mittee on Foreign Affairs was debating
whether it should report revolution or rec
Chairman McCreary of the House Com
mittee on Foreign Affairs says it is not
customary to give publicity to diplomatic
correspondence until it has reached its
.-.sanation. Consequently, the letter to
President Dole will not be made public
until sufficient time has passed for Its re
ception. Tbe fact that the existence of
the correspondence has become known
may induce the President to make it pub
The proceedings as to the legations were
simple and formal. Minister Thurston on
starting for Hawaii had left Secretary
Hastings as Charge d' Affaires and Minister
ad interim for tbe Provisional Govern
ment of Hawaii. By the same mail which
conveyed to the State Department Willis'
notice that he had recognized the new re
public of Hawaii, Mr. Hastioes received
bis credentials of Charge Affaires and
Minister ad interim for the republic.
These were from Mr. Hatch, the Ha
waiian Minister of Foreign Affairs, di
rected lo Mr. Gresham. Mr. Hastings laid
his credentials before the State Depart
ment, and day before yesterday received
tbe usualfnotice, stating that the depart
ment nad received his credentials and rec
ognized him as the ad interim representa
tive of the Hawaiian republic.
When the Committee on Foreign Affairs
met to-day Chirman McCreary announced
that the President had recognized the Ha
waiian Republic. The Republican mem
bers maintained tbat Boutelle's resolution
was still in order, and that it was desira
ble for Congress to extend its greeting to
the republic. A motion to adjourn was
carried, McCreary, Hooker, Tucker, Price,
Everett, Money and Dinsmore voting for
it. and Blair. Hltt, Van Voorhees, Draper
and Geary against. No more meetings of
tbe committee are expected this session.
For All That He Sent Home His Shot
at the Administration.:.
Washington, Aug. 9.— ln the House
to-day Boutelle, speaking to a question of
personal privilege, denied the published
imputation that be bad introduced for po
litical purposes resolutions recognizing the
new Hawaiian republic. Referring to the
President's recognition of the republic, he
began describing how Mr. Gresham bad
"sneaked up to the Capitol yesterday to
inform Chairman McCreary of the admin
istration's purpose," when he was called
to order by Outhwaite and warned by the
Speaker. Boutelle denounced the conduct
of the administration on Hawaiian aff .Irs
as "peanut politics." He asked the House
to repudiate the whole malodorous affair
and express to the new republic its cordial
The Speaker decided that Boutelle bad
gone outside the question of personal priv
ilege, and, as he would not desist, ordered
him to fake his seat.
McCrjary protested that Boutelle, by his
"manner and words," had charged im
proper motives to the committee.
Boutelle interjected— "l withdraw 'man
ner.' The gentleman from Kentucky has
enough for both of us."
M. Creary thereupon resumed his seat.
In the morning hour Meyer of Louisiana
again called up the bill to promote the effi
ciency of the militia, and Flthiau of Illi
nois condemned the part taken by the citi
zen soldiers in the late strike.
In the course of two and a balf hours six
relief bills were passed, and then at 4:50
p. M. the House adjourned.

match between his mare Nightingale and
Greenlander. The mare went wild with
the horse for the first mile in 2:17%, but
left him at the three-quarter post in the

The United States Senator to Be
Chosen in the Regular Way.
Boise, Idaho, Aug. 9.— The Republican
State convention reconvened this morn
ing. After the report of the committee on
credentials J. 11. Richards of Fayette was
made permanent chairman and J. H.
Gwynn of Caldwell secretary. A fight
was immediately stared over the propo
sition to nominate a candidate for United
States Senator. Tbe battle raged royally
until the middle of the afternoon, when a
vote was taken, resulting in the defeat of
the proposition, 89 to 78. The report of
the resolutions committee was presented
The platform reaffirms tbe doctrine of
protection ; declares for the free coinage of
silver at 16 to 1, and advocates tbe sub
mission of an equal-suffrase amendment.

WHITE LET IT SLIP.
Why San Pedro Lost Her
The Senator From California Did
Not Attend Strictly to His
Washington, Aug. 9. — Huntington's
agents bave succeeded in Knocking out San
Pedro's deep-water harbor project, for the
time at least- Cannon of tbe Ventura dis
trict succeeded by hard work in having an
item of $40,000 appropriated for deepening
the inner harbor. He had tried to secure
it for the outer harbor, which would vir
tually have comuiitteed the Government in
favor of San Pedro as against Santa Mon
ica; but the House committee had deter
mined positively that it would undertake
no new projects, such as this would have
Then he and White got their beads to
gether and formed this plan. When the
bill reached the Senate White was to try
aud have this appropriation clause
amended so the money could be diverted
from the purpose intended by the House
and expended on the outer harbor. This
scheme did not work, however, and the
Senate passed the item as it came from

White apparently paid no further atten

dents. _mcke_ the item our. When the
bill came back from the conference White,
to all appearances, was greatly surprised
and protested vehemently against the
action of the conference committee, but
was unable to change the result. He
cited precedents and argued till he was
red in the f.ce, but all availed naught.
Huntington's men bad done their work
too well. Mr. White is angry, and will at
next winter's session explain the matter
to the Senate and endeavor to have a
special act passed making this appropria
tion which he says will be time enough,
as the Government engineers have said
they could not use the money this season.
No More Liquor and Compromise
on the Tariff.
Baltimore. Aug. 9.— The State Prohi
bition convention at Glyndon Park has
nominated .candidates as follows: For
Congress— Second District, J. D. Parker,
Baltimore; Fifth District, Colonel J. C.
Lee of Prince G.orge County for the short
term, and W. B. Silk of Anaconda for the
long term; Sixth District, Albert O. Shoe
maker, Montgomery County.
The platform insists upon tbe absolute
prohibition of the liquor traffic in the State
and nation, and asserts that tbe tariff from
its very nature is a subject for settlement
by way of compromise by the Congress of
the United States. It also favors gold,
silver and paper as a circulating medium,
all of full leal tender, the restriction of
immigration, woman suffrage and Govern*
ment control of railroads and telegraphs.
Washington, Aug. 9.— The Senate in
executive session to-day confirmed tbe

Sudden Flop of the House
AN AGREEMENT IN SIGHT.

WILSON DEFENDS CLEVELAND.
Strange That the Trouble Should
Have Arisen Over the Duty
Washington, Aug. 9.— The Democratic
tariff conference had expected to be able
to announce an agreement to-day. In
stead of reaching any definite conclusion
the day closed with the bill in quite as
uncertain a state as ever before in its his
tory, with the situation in no wise im
proved, with the feeling between the
friends of the Senate and House bill in
tensified instead of allayed, and with no
one prepared to say what the outcome
would be or when the end would be
It was apparent at the very beginning
of the conference that those who had con
cluded at the adjournment of tbe session
yesterday that an agreement would be ar
rived at to-day had not taken sufficiently
into account the possibility of misunder
standing or a change of mind. This dis
covery was made when the Senate confe
rees prepared to go on with tbe bill upon
tbe basis of a duty of 90 cents per ton on
coal and free iron ore,- whereupon the
House conferees announced their unwill
ingness to assent to this arrangement,
and stated tbat they would insist on a re
versal of these terms, with coal free and
iron ore dutiable if eitbei was to be, as
they understood they were to have a choice
between the two.
The avowal of this position produced
great confusion and led to an exchange of
remarks which were not altogether polite.
The Senate conferees thereon decided to
report the state of affairs to the conserva
tive Senators and when the conference
adjourned called Senators Gorman, Al
dricb. Smith and Murphy into consulta
tion. Tbe whole situation was outlined
to them. They were not only made ac
quainted with tbe demand of the House
conferees for free coal, but were also given
to understand that other material conces
sions would be expected by the Bouse con
ferees along the entire line of the bill, In
cluding woolen, cottons, metals, class and
earthenware. They decided on an em
phatic negative in reply to these proposi
tions, saying if the body of the bill was
not preserved virtually as it passed the
Senate the report of the conference when
made would not be accepted by the
Senator Brice proposed an innovation in
the shape of a proposition tbat the House
conferees be given an opportunity to se
cure free sugar. His idea in detail was
that tbe Senate conferees should volunteer
to recede entirely from the Senate sugar
schedule. The questinti was, therefore,
undisposed of when the conference ad
journed for the day.
Tbe House conferees have their side ol
the situation to tell. Chairman Wilson
authorized the statement that at tbe close
of the conference to-day the reports cur
rent during the day that President Cleve
land had interfered with the formal agree
ment reached last night were wholly
unfounded and untrue. Wikjon said the
Chief Executive was very careful about
exerting any Influence with the conferees
and was leaving the members to shape
their courses as they saw fit.
As to the misunderstandings throughout
the day the Bouse men understood when
the conference adjourned last night that
the Senators had conceded tbat either iron
ore or coal was to go on the free list, the
other remaining on the dutiable list.
While the House men had given no defi
nite announcement of their choice be
tween the two items, it was generally
understood that they would prefer to have
iron ore on the free list. When, therefore,
they entered tbe conference te-day tbe?
had concluded among themselves that it
would be preferable to have coal on the
tree list, leaving iron ore dutiable at 40
cents a ton. This conclusion was defi
nitely annouueed to the Senators, but the
House members were surprised to find
that the willingness to concede them tbe
choice was somewhat abated. What had
caused the change was not made clear,
but in discussing it to-night the House
confeiees said, with no little feeling, mat
it was clearly due to the influence of those
Interested in the sugar schedule.
Whether the difficulty would be solved
to-morrow or would be declared off en
tirely was not clear to the House con
ferees. In the event of an understanding
on coal and iron to-morrow tbe conferees
expressed the hone that the Republican
conferees might be called In late In the
day or on Saturday, although the differ
ences developed to-day on coal and iron,
as well as on some of the other schedules,
made tbe chances of a full conference less
hopeful to-night than they were last night.
