Senator Begins Closing Argument In
Haywood Trial and Shows Evi
dence Against One Conspira
tor Applies Alike to All.
BOISE, Idaho, July 23. The case of
the State of Idaho against Williaiji D.
Haywood, charged with the murder of
Frank Steunenberg, a former Governor
Of the state, will rest with judge and
Jury by tomorrow night. Clarence
Darrow, after speaking for 11 hours,
concluded the final pela for Haywood's
life at 4:20 P. M., and at 7 o'clock this
evening United States Senator Borah
opened the closing argument for the
prosecution. He will speak for three
sessions, or about seven hours. Judgj
Fremont Wood will instruct and charge
the' jury on Saturday morning.
At least 1000 reople were unable to
find seats in the court room tonight.
Two hours before the hour set for the
third session of the day, crowds be
gan to arrive and within half an hour the
doors were closed to all but court of
ficials and newspaper men. It was an
audience composed almost entirely of
Boise people .gathered to hear the
speech of the young man who, recently
elected by the people of Idaho to rep
resent them in the United State Sen
ate, has been the assistant counsel fpr
the prosecution in the case against
Xo Immunity for Orchard.
51rs.SfeuuTnberg, the widow of the
murdered Governor, appeared in the
courtroom for the first time since the
trial opened. She occupied a seat in
side the railings, beside her youngest
son, Julian. Governor Gooding, a num
ber of the executive staff and -a large
representation of the state judiciary
and bar were among the audience.
Haywood was surrounded by seven of
his counsel and his wife in her inva
lid chair was. as usual, by his side.
At the prosecution's table, when Mr.
Borah rose to speak, were seated two
of the counsel on each side, but Mr.
Hawrey, leading counsel for the state,
was not in his place owins to illness.
Mr. Borah's speech was a sensation.
From time to time he turned on coun
sel for the defense, fierce denuncia
tion pouring from his lips, and at times
brought rrotests from Mr. Richardson
and Mr. -Di.rrow. but with blazins !res
and hot words he silenced every effort
to break the rush of words. The
climax was reached, when in behalf of
the State of Idaho, its people. Its Gov
ernor and himself he disclaimed all In
tention or desire to give immunity to
Orchard. Finally, his face pale and
voice quivering with emotion, the Sen
ator raised his arm and said:
"If I should ever join in or give ap
proval to Immunity to this man. I hope
the great God may wither my right
arm In the socket." . .
Condemns Attack on Haw-ley.
Mr. Borah began his argument to
the jury shortly after 7 P. M. He said
he appreciated that the jurors were
fatigued by their long ordeal and
promised he would be as brief as pos
sible under the circumstances. Much
of his speech, he declared, would be
an answer to the argument of the op
posing counsel. He said:
I am aware that I am In this case as a spe
cial prosecutor. The learned counsel on the
other side has impressed this fact upon you.
But let me say that the state which does not
protect Its citizens or punish wrongdoers would
soon lose the respect of Its people and have
no tand!ng In our civilization.
But counsel has gone further with my asso
ciate. Why they should attack Mr. Hawley,
who went fearlessly into the investigation of
this matter, why they should assail in a per
sonal way a man who has rncticed law In
his community for 4f years and whose loyalty,
whose honfflty. has never before been ques
tioned. I do not know. It is usually thought
sufficient to attack a man's argument to do
way with his logic but running through this
case Is an attack upon everyone, be he high
or low. who has had anything to do with, or
been In any way associated with, the Investi
gation of the crime of December 30. 1!M3.
Only Want Fair Verdict.
Mr. Borah declared the state did not
want Haywood convicted of any crime
for which Orchard or Petttbone or
Moyer or Simpkins or anybody else was
responsible, and desired a verdict of
guilty only If the evidence was deemed
sufficient to warrant such a conclu
sion. The Senator denounced Clarence
DarroWs statement that the jurors'
minds had been poisoned against the
defendants in this case. Nowhere, he
declared, could a fairer trial have been
held than in Boise; no defendant ever
sat In a courtroom where there was a.
greater desire for an absolutely Impar
tial and Just trial. He continued:
Have you men heard anybody on the streets
of Boue asking for the blood of William L.
Haywood regardless of his guilt? No. and
It Is to the everlasting credit of the r-eople of
Idaho that, despite' the fact that one of Its
most distinguished citizens was murdered, no
where has there been an outcry for anything
. more than Justice and an absolutely fair and
Impartial trial. Men know it and by now I
think the world knows it. You knew it when
you lifted your hands to high heaven and
took your oath of service and it Is all that
the state asks of you in this. Its closing hour.
We are not here fighting organized labor!
We are not here fighting the rich or tha
poor. Neither are we here to consent that
organized labor shall be a shield to crime.
This is not an Industrial war. as my eloquent
friend of the defense would have you believe.
We are not arraying class against class, or one
phase of society against another. This is not
a battle of the rich against the poor or the
poor against the rich. We are here in the
Interest of Justice, of fairness. That Is all.
Tells Law of Conspiracy.
Mr. Borah plunged directly into the
assassination of Steunenberg. He de
clared Orchard had planted a bomb, as
he had done many times before. He
was an old and experienced criminal,
and he was not alone In the commission
of crime. He proceeded:
"If you stand at he gate of Frank Steunen
berg, broken and stained with his own blood,
and if from there you 'follow the devious way
of Harry Orchard, you will find that the trail
of blood passes up the stairway in Denver, up
which Orchard ran that day t while the darkey
held his horse at the curb below.
The defense would have you believe that not
withstanding what Moyer may have done, what
Pattlbone may have done, what Simpkins may
have done or what Orchard may have done,
Haywood is not guilty. But the. law, gentle
men of the Jury, says that when men know-
Senator W. E. Borah, of Idaho, Who
Is Making the Clewing Argument
for the State in the Haywood
ingly Join together- to commit & crime, the
act of one Is the act of the other, no matter
where that other may be at the time of the
commission of the crime. It is not an answer
to our charge for the , attorneys for the de
fence to say: ."We care nothing for Jack Simp
kins; let him go overboard. We care nothing
for what Pettlbone may have done, we will
take care of him later." I tell you - and I
think the court will instruct you that In a
case of this character the acta of Pettlbone are
the acts of Haywood; the unexplained letters
and telegrams of George Pettlbone and Jack
Stmpklns are the unexplained letters and tele
grams of W. D. Haywood.
The only qucMton here Is as to whether or
not the evidence has been adduced to satisfy
you that there van a, conspiracy. Counsel for
the defense has said we have not shown an
"inner circle"' or an organized; bureau for crime.
Well, I could pretty nearly rest the proof of
that proposition on the argument of Mr. Dar
Dnrrow's Apology for Crime.
The evidence In this case shows that some
where In the Western Federation of Miners
there Is a power which controlled, a power
which commits crime It is proved aa clearly as
the fact that Frank Steunenberg is dead. Take
April 20. 1809. when the members of the
Western Federation of Miners walked boldly
from theifr work, organized with military pre
cision, went to Wardner and there blew up
the Bunker Hill & Sullivan mill. Mr. Barrow
tells you himself that the miners went back
next day to their work in the mines. Why
did they? Because they believed there was no
such thing as law and order in the State of
Ida.no. .OJi no. gentlemen of the Jury, this was
not a criminal act; this was not the Western
Federation of Miners. What was It? Was It
an accident?. Jim Shayne was killed. Oh,
yes. but he mas a wab. Mr. Darrow tells you.
The Bunker Hill mill was blown up! Oh. yes,
but It employed nonunion men. Mr. Darrow
says that , whenever you get a thousand men
together to go and do a thing. It is some
thing that ought to be done. That may be
the rule In Chicago, but it doesn't go in Idaho.
Mr. Darrow "has painted Harry Orchard to
you a a veritable devil and I agree with
him. ' '
Mr. Borah declared that Mr. Darrow
in his address to the jury had offered
subtle justification for everything I
charged against the defense. He set j
himself up In defiance of all the laws of
public decency. ...
Defense Has Orchartlltls.
"If the doctrine that Mr. arrow,
preached to- 'ou be true. I am not ' sur
prised" that these mn committed mur
der," said Mr. Borah, who then turned
upon Mr. Richardson and declared that.
If Harry Orchard Is crazy. It was no
compliment to one of the greatest law
yers in the West that the maniac did not
disclose afly of his Insanity In a week's
cross-examination. He continued:
The counsel for the defence tell you that
Orchard was caught red-handed in the act of
killing Steunenberg, that he confessed to save
his own neck and that, if he bad net con
fessed, the daisies would have been blooming
on his grave for a year past. Oh, no. gentle
men of the Jury, if Orchard had not confessed,
the attorneys for the Western Federation of
Miners would be In this courtroom defending
and eulogizing him as a brave man, a mem
ber of the great working class, and my friend
Richardson would convince you beyond a rea
' son able doubt that Orchard could not be guilty
t - t ii
or the killing of Governor Steunenberg because
he was in his room at the Saratoga Hotel
when the bomb went off. Mr. Darrow say
my assistant has "Orcharditls." Well, may
be he hae, but we got it from the depths of
the Western Federation of Miners. They had
"Orcharditis" first, he was one of them, a
delegate to their convention, a visitor to their
homes. But the difference Is that we have him
tied up in .the penitentiary while they were
sending him broadcast through the country
on his evil missions.
Much has been said here In 'derision of
Harry Orchard's religion. Whether he has re
ligion or not I do not know and l has noth
ing to do with hid testimony one way or
the other. But remember, gentlemen of the
jury, that the question of Orchard's religion or
non-religion -was not a matter Imposed by the
state upon you it was brought Into this case
by the cross-examination of the defense.
Give Assassin Religion's Solace.
Iwelling upon Mr. Darrow's views of
Christianity, Mr. Borah exclaimed elo
quently that it was too late in this
morning of the twentieth century to
write upon the brow of Him upon Cal
vary, "imposter; to late to brand
"false prophet" upon Him who said:
"This day thou shalt be with .me in
Paradise." If Harry Orchard, poor
devil that he is, with his hands red with
the blood of 20 innocent men and his soul
steeped in the very fumes of hell, had

as Drawback to Justice.
COOGAN DEFENDS GLASS
Says the Sins of the Pacific States
Telephone Company Should
Xot Be Laid on Shoulders
of the Defendant.
SAN FRANCISCO. July 25. The
Louis Glass bribery case should be in
the hands of the jury by 1 o'clock to
morrow afternoon. Francis J. Heney,
for the people, and T. C. Coogan, for
the defense, today made each his open
ing argument. At 10 o'clock tomorrow
morning Delphln M. Delmas will be
gin the closing address for Glass. Pop
ular prophecy is divided between a
conviction and a disagreement. No
one affects tq forecast an acquittal.
The chief sensation of the trial came
at 1 :2 o'clock this afternoon, when the
prosecution having closed its case Mr.
Delmas crisply announced: "So have
we." This determination to offer no
evidence In contradiction of .the .cir
cumstantial web woven around Glass
was a sudden and complete surprise
to everyone, most of all to the prose
cution, for the previous day Delmas
had casually, or so it seemed, men
tioned Rudolph Spreckels as "one of
the witnesses we shall call."
Heney, after stating frankly to the
jury that the declination of Second
Vice-President Zimmer, the most im
portant individual witness for the
state, to testify had put It beyond the
power -it the prosecution to establish
definitely the connection of Glass with
the crime of bribing Supervisor Charles
Boston, devoted himself to a vigorous
exposition of the clrtjumstantlal case
made out. He claimed that by carry
ing out successfully a process of
elimination he had proved beyond all
reasonable doubt that other than Hal
ely only two men had the power to
supply the telephone funds for the
bribery of the Supervisors Emlle J.
Zimmer and Louis Glass, the former
now In the County Jail for contempt in
refusing to testify, the. latter of whom
has exercised ills right as a defendant
not to take the stand.
Coogan's Defense of Glass.
"Justice." said attorney Coogan, the
white-haired, lifelong friend of the de
fendant, in opening his argument for
Glass, "should be the same kind In all
cases. Here is a man who has run
over three-fourths of the space allotted
to mankind, and who now finds him
self confronted with a serious crime
before a jury. It means a great deal
to him. But if he Is guilty of this of
fense you should not consider the con
sequences to him. One thing you must
at all times remember, and the court
will so Instruct you, that the presump
tion of Innocence is ever with the ac
PUZZLE PICTURE: FIND
cused, and you must give to him the
benefit of any and every reasonable
doubt that In your minds may arise.
"It is charged that Mr. Glass Vaid
Supervisor Boxton. the sum of J5000
to Influence, his vote on the Home Tele
phone Company's application for a
franchise. The proposition is this:
Was that crime committed, and, if so,
who committed it?"
Thenceforward Mr. Coogan bent his
energies to the exploitation of three
'The failure of the prosecution , to
show by any witness that Glass aided,
encouraged or abetted the perpetra
tion of that crime, the improbability
of its commission by Glass because of
lack of motive, and the fatal error of
'laying the sins and wrong-doings of
the Pacific States Telephone Company
on the shoulders of this defendant.'"
The surprise occasioned by Mr. Delmas'
announcement created such a stir In the
courtroom that, the bailiffs were kept
busy crying for order. Judge Lawlor
ruled that the documentary evidence ad
mitted during the trial as exhibits for the
prosecution should be handed to the Jury
Adjournment was taken until 2 P. M.
At that time Heney began for the pros
ecution the opening argument to the
jury. He said that the prosecution never
expected to show that the alleged bribe
of $5000 for the vote of Supervisor Charles
Boxton against an ordinance granting a
competitive franchise to the Home Tele
phone Company was paid to Boxton by
Glass, but he said the Jury was to deter
mine whether the prosecution had proved
whether Glass had authorized Halsey to
pay the money. In which case Glass, un
der, the law, was just as guilty of the
crime of bribery as if he had actually
paid over the bribe. v
Heney Flays Zimmer.
Reverting to the defection of Second
Vice-President Zimmer, of the Pacific
States Telephone & Telegraph Company
(now In jail for contempt In refusing to
tentlfy against Glass), Heney told the
jury that If such acts of individual ob
struction of Justice were to Be permitted
to save corporation officials like Louis
Glass from punishment for their crimes
of corruption If such tricks were to ex
tort from an American Jury a verdict of
acquittal, then men might with Impunity
go forth and commit cold-blooded mur
der In the streets and escape the gallows
by the simple refusal of a witness to tes
tify to their guilt.
The testimony of Zimmer, said Heney,
was necessary to the prosecution to prove,
as it alone could prove, that the $50,000
worth of checks by which had been se
cured the money to bribe the Supervisors,
were drawn by Zimmer by direction of
Glass and turned over to Halsey by Zim
mer. When Zimmer was "persuaded" to
go back on his grand jury testimony and
refused to repeat it as evidence in court,
the prosecution was designedly robbed of
Its most valuable Individual witness.
Heney charged that the "pulling down"
of Zimmer was the direct and criminal
work of the defendant Glass. He charged
that Treasurer Kennedy, of the Pacific
States Company, deliberately perjured
himself at .the behest of Glass when, upon
being recalled to the stand, he changed
his testimony in the vital point as to the
month in which those checks were drawn.
"You, gentlemen of the Jury. s reason
able men,", said Heney, "cannot come to
any other conclusion than that the wit
ness Kennedy was prostituted and cor
rupted by the defendant Glass."

SEOUL, July 25. Viscount Hayashi, the
Japanese Minister of Foreign Affairs, re
ceived the Associated Press correspond
ent today and In an interview on the
Corean situation said that the new agree
ment contained Japan's whole programme
In Corea. His mission accomplished, he
said, he would return to Japan on the
first ship from Chemulpo; that matters
now devolve upon Marquis Ito, who was
more than a'Premier and whose respon
sibilities hadimore than doubled, adding
that Japan' responsibilities in Corea
were now enormous. Continuing, Count
"The provisions of the new agreement
were anticipated in the protectorate

"In regard to the feeling in Japan about
the new convention, the people are un

agreement ought to satisfy all reasonable
Japanese, as It ends a long Impossible

as taking control of the Corean army
and administering the finances and the
affairs of the imperial household."
Gives Warning to China.
Touching on the American question.
Count Hayashi said:
"It is a fact that the Japanese people
have forgotten the American question In
the Corean crlsiB, which has shown the
little importance attached by the public
to the former. The leaders In the agita
tion in Japan are men who have gone
astray in their Judgment of public ques
tions." Continuing, the Foreign Minister said:
"If the lesson of the fate of Corea can
be so regarded by China, it may have
warned that government to put its house
in order ere, whatever Its strength may
be, the nation Imitate the events in
