Hay wood. The jury was not brought into court, Judge. Wood having been informed-by the counsel of their de cision to rest without an offer of surrebuttal. Clarence Darrow spoke for an hour and a half in the morn ing session. Senator Borah replied in the afternoon and was followed by E. F. Richardson. Judge Wood will probably announce his decision this morning. The point argjied was the proposi tion to exclude considerable of the evidence offered by the defense to show by the proof of the deportation of miners and the employment Of de tectives In the Cripple Creek district of Colorado, that a conspiracy was formed among the mine owners and citizens of the district to provent the employment of the members of the Western Federation of Miners. The position taken by the Hay wood defense was that Harry Orch ard was employed by the mine own ers' association through detectives to commit crimes that were charged to the federation, that the public opin ion was aroused against the union worker and that if the Colorado evi dence for the state was admitted the defense had a right to show conspir acy. The reply of the state was that the defense bad failed legailly to connect their case in the particulars and that therefore their evidence merely con fused the issue. In .the absence of the Viury- the argument gave the counsel an opportunity to take a wide range in commenting on the methods employed by both sides. 5 Oarrow was impassioned and vi tuperative. He bitterly, assailed Or chard and the Pinkertons. He .main tained that Orchard's story connect lng Haywood and the Western Fed eration Of Miners with crimes to which h« has confessed had not been corroborated, that the Vindicator mine explosion was an accident that the independence -depot explosion, where |ourteen/men were killed, was plaau^d by J. C. 8terling and Df C. 806% railroad ^detectives, and that the Pinkertons isent men into the district' to join fthe unions and in cite the members to riot and disor der. Incidentally he said the Brad ley incident In Ban Francisco was 4ue to an explosion of gas as shown by the evidence for tbo defeiiao and tgutt Haywpod had not been, connect ed at any point with any of the or V" .! iKJ* CONDEMNS SIXTY-FIVE PROPOSI TIONS FAVORED BY •M •liP Preamble Includes Judgment on a Number of Important Doctrines— Aimed at Writers Who Explain Dogmas in Light of Socalled Mo dernism. m. Rome, Italy, July 19.—The sylla bus promulgated by the pope yester day with regard to so-called modern ism in faith contains a preamble set ting forth the statement that Roman Catholic authors, under the pretext of examining dogmas, explain them in the name of history in such a fashion that the dogmas themselves disappear. To prevent such errors, the preamble says the pope has or dered the congregation of the inquis ition to note and reprove the princi pal errors and with his approbation sixty-five propositions are condemn ed. These include the following: "Divine Inspiration does not guar antee all and every part of the Holy Scripture against error. "The resurrection of the Savior is not a historical fact, but is purely supernatural. It can never be de monstrated nor is it demonstrable. "The Roman Catholic church be came head of all churches, not by di vine ordinances, but purely by poll tlcal circumstances." "The church is the enemy of nat ural and theological sciences." ..^ "The Christian doctrine was first 'judaic, then Paplln, then Hellenics then universal." "The principal articles of the ap ostles creed had not the same signifi cance to primitive Christians as they have to time." Christians of the. present ert acts confessed by Orchard, ex cept by the discredited testimony of Orchard himself. Senator Borah confined Richardson argued that a conspir acy had been shown by the contribu tory effect of all the evidence in troduced by the defense and closed with the statement that if the court saw fit to exclude the evidence bear ing on the Colorado situation intro duced by the state, counsel for the defense would be satisfied to see their exidence excluded. Judge Wood, stated that In all probability he would decide today. J. M. Hawley Will open the argu ments for the state at 10 o'clock this morning It is expected that he will take the entire day. Mr. Richardson for the defense will speak Saturday. NO SETTIE^JT AT DUtUT^ v.

EXPLANATIONS TO MATTERS HE HAS KEPT SECRET Iks.- 1 hi himself largely to the legality of the ques tion of admissibility. He spoke for an hour, reviewing the evidence and the claims made by the defense, which, he said, failed to show by any member of the alleged conspiracy be tween the mine owners' association and the Pinkertons that any such conspiracy existed. He quoted au thorities to show that a conspiracy can only jbe considered after the in troduction of direct evidence of a conspirator. fell Admits That Ho Sent Dispatch to Frau Moliter Calling Her From Paris to Baden Baden—Barber Testifies to Making False Beard for Him and That He Wore It the Day of the Murder.
