Bam Attorneys ca tie Defense and en me Prosecution are
(Scrlpps Newe Association)
Boise, Feb. 26 Attorney Miller, for
the defense, said this morning, i ne miiw
owners are bending every , energy and
spending unlimited money in their efforts
to convict the Federation officials of the
Steunenburg murder. It is a significant
that while a reward of ten thousand dol
lars was offered in the name of Shoshone
county, the county commissioners have
taken no official action in the matter.
Undoubtedly the money was, put up by
the mine owners. My clients are not in
the slightest danger. They cannot be
convicted, because they are not guilty.
Are will not oppose extradictlon further
than to preserve our right for a higher
court As a matter of fact we are glad
to go to trial because the burden of pro jf
is upon the prosecution." ',.'.
Detective McPharland was seen this
morning and as told what Attorney
Miller had to say, he responded with the
.'1 am .absolutely sure to be able to
secure conviction. I was not more sure
when I werjt into court with the "Mollie
McGuires' case. I have corroboration of
Orchard's chief confession,' which leaves
absolutely no' loop hole of escape. I have
sufficient evidence now ready .for indict
ments laid before the grand jury, but the
rest of the evidence w are holding in
reserve for the trial."
The privileges promised the prisoners
ac tne pemcentary did not materialize.
When Attorney Miller called pn his client
he found that the electric lights had been
removed and candles had been substituted.
When he asked the reason of the change
Pettibone answered "to prevent us com
mitting suicide." Floyd B. Thompson,

secretary of the Mine Owners Assoc ia
tion who is here to testify, before the
grand jury, says there is the greatest
satisfaction among the mine owner that

ANOTHfR FLOATING DRY DOCK '
(Scrlpps Newe Association) --
Washington. D. C Feb. 26 The Navy
Department officials are anxious to have
authorized at the present session of Con
gress at least one floating dry dock, to be
stationed in home waters. The site se
lected is Solomon's Island in Chesapeake
Bay. which is admirably adapted for the
purpose. Should such a dock be con
structed, it will possess a new feature in
an enlarged machine shop, containing the
modern facilities for repairing ships. This
will give the dock the value of a minia
ture navy yard, with the additional ad
vantage of being able to proceed from
place to plaoe and save the time of ships
which .are needed in certain1 localities.
Naval strategists nave come to realize'
that the floating dry dock is an important
factor in maintaining tne emoiency ui um
fleet and in giving the fighting ships great
er value on the fighting line. ,
