DEFENSE SHOWING ITS HAND
Haywood Seeking to Throw Blame
Upon Uline Owner.
COUNTER CONSPIRACY CHARGED
Orchard Admits that Haywood Had
Netblag- fa With Plaaal VI
d Ira tor Explosl mt Murder '
BOISE, Idaho. June 10 Into the further
cross-examination of Harry Orchard today
counsel for William D. Haywood repeatedly
threw the suggestion of -i great counter
consplrscy, formulated and carried out by
the enemies of the Western- Federation of
Miners, and . Indicated a determination to
construct their mala lino of defense on tbat
field. They carried Orchard by slow steps
and through the minutest detail from the
dynamiting of the Independence station
down to the attempt on the life of Fred
Bradley and his family, and In addition to
a Series o fparticular attacks on the credi
bility of the witness and the general proba
bility of his stories, and preparing the way
for their own testimony la rebuttal, they
sought to Show that Orchard has a mania
for boasting of the commission of crimes
non-ex Istant except In his own mind and
that he is testifying under the control and
suggestion of Detective McPartland.
They began today by making It clear that
as far as Orchard knew of his own knowl-
edge, Haywood, Mover and Petti bone had
nothing to do with the Insplratlo.n planning
and execution of the Vindicator explosion,
and that Haywood and Moyer had nothing
to do with the planning of the murder of
Passing then to the dynamiting of the
Independence depot, the first crime with
which the testimony of Orchard directly
connects Haywood, Moyer and Pettibone,
they endeavored to show that Orchard In
springing the mine had purposely sought
to spare the oncoming train and the non
union men who were expected to entrain,
and that the whole plot was engineered by
agents of the mine owners and railway
managers, who wanted a comparatively
harmless "outrage" to Injure the union
miners who wers on strike.
Msyherry Story Attacked.
Leaving the Independence station crime.
which was followed by the' flight or Or
chard into Wyoming and then by his on-
expected return to Denver, counsel for the
defense sought to discredit the story that
Haywood directed. Orchard to kill Andy
Mayberry by showing that Haywood and
Mayberry are old and Intimate friends.
Getting down to the Bradley crime they
devoted themselves largely to the revolting
story of Orchard's attempt to poison ths
entire Bradley household, including the
Infant child, which he had seen In a baby
carriage, and Mrs. Crow, the cook with
whom he had made friends and whom he
accompanied to a theater. Into stronger re-.
Uef than had been the direct examination,
they threw Ihe utter depravity of tbe wit
ness and gavo tbe watching crowd the one
deep noted thrill of aV otherwise weary
day. Orchard swore that while in San
Francisco he , repeatedly received money
from Pettibone, who used the name of "Pat
Bone'.' la transmitting it, and la making
this .clearer today the .defense gave evi
dence of a plan to ahow that thla money
waa sent under Pettibone's name thinly
disguised by persons plotting against ths
leaders of , the Western Federation of
Wltaeas Not" Cost ased.
Orchard denied thst mine owners or rail
way men . had any part" In the Independ
ence station outrage; denied that he had
a mania for, confessing uncommitted crimes
and denied that he is under the Influence
of McPartland. He showed some spirit In
answering many of Attorney Richardson's
questions, but he firmly held to all of his
first stories and was calm and certain
throughout the long, trying examination.
Two more crimes were brought home to Or
chard today; he confessed that he burned
a cheese factory In Ontario to get tSOO In
surance and he confessed that he began
his life of crime by selling cheese at short
weight. Counsel for the state led today's
examination, takes Its course without a
single, serious objection and at the close
privately algnlfied their entire satisfaction.
Orchard haa been on the stand five daya
and has fully two more to serve. - Steve
Adams Is a tenant of Ada county Jail and a
close cell neighbor of Hsywood, Moyer and
Pettibone. He Is for the present Incom
municado, and Ms custodians say that he
ia BuhVn and will refuse to say a word
when ha is calledto the stand.

In the course of Orchard's examination

"Haywood ssld he wss at ths head of

hundred thousand dollar to drive the fed

Orchard denied he bad any grudxe
against Bradley from hi experience in
the Coeur d'Aelenes.
"You were lust tsklng orders to kill
from your chief?" suggested Mr. Rich
ardson. "I was doing what Mr. Haywood told
were Haywood' executioner ex
The prosecution objected to the form of
the question and It was not answer-id.
Richardson asked Orchard If he did n t
have a grudge against Bradley by re 4 eon
of the tact' that he was driven out of
"If I waa driven out It was ray own
fault," said tbe witness.
Taking ths witness back to the blowing
up of ths concentrator mill of the Bunker
Hill and Sullivan mine of which Bradley
was tnce the manager, Richardson asked
him how long he bad been a member of
the federation at this time.
"About a month." -replied Orchard.
Before that Urn he had belonged to the
Knights of Lahor.

IOWA POLITICS LESS MIXED
Oaty Three- Caatrsta mm llepekllraa
State Ticket Aside from t'alted
DE8 MOINB9. JKino 10. (Special.) Ths
prospect of elimination of any personal fac
tional line-up from the political contest in
Iowa next year appears to be good. There
will be but three places contested for on
the, state ticket aside from the Indorsement
of the choice of the repubttcens tor Vnlted
States senator. The only position an which
there la likely to be a factional flst In tbe
candidacy for governor. For every cam
paign In the past two years there has been
a factional line-up and candidates first of
one faction and then of the other have
won out. But It could hardly be ssld that
the candidates who are now being c.uid
ered are of thla kind; In fact, there are
but two names being considered, and both
of these men desire to be candidates If at
all without any reference to factional mat
ters. Inamuch as they probably do not
differ a hair's breadth la their views on
state and national policies which ought to
be pursued It Is hard to pee how there can
be any factional fight as betwen them.
Lieutenant Governor Warren Garst and
State' Auditor B. F. Carroll are the two
men whose names are being discussed more
than any others with relation to the gov
ernor's office. Some other names men
tioned would Indicate a factional fight, but
in regard to these two wen this Is not pos,
slble. Both were on the ticket last year
and both were Indorsed by large votes.
Both have been membra of the state sen
ate and have served long snd faithfully
Lin that dignified body. Both are In official
position now ana nave naa neavy respon
sibilities placed upon them, and In the
eyes of the people of the state they
both fairly represent the conservstlve and
substantial business Interests of the state.
Neither of these men has made any an
nouncement for himself as to his plana,
but they are both being considered. If they
are the onr candidates before the republi
can state primary next June, Or the lead
ing candidates for . governor, the i contest
will not take on any factional form, but
the fight will be purely personal.
Despite that Secretary Taft Is coming to
Iowa the coming week and It Is expected
that a considerable boons will be given htm
for the Iowa delegation, the friends and
admirers of Fairbanks4 are at work and are
confident that In the nta the Indiana states
man will have a goosshow In this atste.
The Fairbanks address on Grant day at
the Grant club In this city has been printed
In pamphlet form and It Is distributed well
over the state, especially among the poli
ticians. It was a fine address. At the
same time Governor Cummins and some of
his friends are Insisting that ' the delega
tion shall be pledged for the renomlnatlon
of Roosevelt and ehfdl only ' go to some
J other candidate when! It la shown at the
convention that RooseeJt win not acceDt.
The Fairbanks people telleva thst an effort
Is mai to get a Tafi delegation In Iowa
they will be easily able) to capture the stats
convention, as Taft Is not personally pop
ular. ' The coming of Taft to the state this
week will probably revive political interest
in presidential matter.
