Will Tour West and Address
All Unions of Miners'
HIS LAWYERS DISAGREE
Darrow and Richardson Each Re
fuse to Work With Other Dar
row Probable Counsel at
Moyer and Pettibone Trials.
BOISE, Idaho. Aug.- 1. (Special. "I
have had hundreds of calls from the boys
In all parts of the territory covered by
the Western Federation of Miners to
come and talk to them, and as soon as I
can arrange matters in Denver, I shall
respond to as many of them as possible."
That was the statement made this
evening by William D. Haywood, secretary-treasurer
of the Western Federation
Mr. Haywood said that, aside from thfc
many unions of the-Federation, he had
received many offers to go on the public
platform as a lecturer. He said he did
not care to pose as an orator or public
speaker or" entertajner. He had some
flattering offers from a financial stand
point, one society in Seattle offering him
J1000 and expenses for one night. But he
said, "My boys will be the first consid
ered. They want me to come to them
and talk to them and I shall make plans
to accommodate them."
Start for Denver Today.
Mr. Haywood, with his family, his
mother and stepsister. John Murphy, the
Federation's attorney, who is dying of
consumption, and a number of Socialists
from Colorado, who were here all through
the trial, will leave on the early train to
morrow morning. Today Dr. Disbrow, of
Denver, family physician, arrived and
said it would be safe for the party to
travel. He will accompany the party
back. Mrs. Carruthers and daughter ex
pect to leave the train at their home in
Charles H. Moyer stated that he would
not leai"e for Denver probably before
Saturday or Monday.
Richardson and Darrow Spilt.
It leaked out over a week ago that
Clarence S. Darrow and E. F. Richard
son would never appear in. any case again
for the same clients and it is now given
out that in the coming cases, those of
George A. Pettibone and Charles H. Moy
er, Mr.' Darrow will probably have the
leading role as attorney for the defense
and .that Mr. Richardson will not again
appear. Mr. Darrow states positively
that either himself or Mr. Richardson
will have to get out. He said he would
never be associated with Mr. Richardson
In another trial, and that, but for the
effect it might have had on the Haywood
trial,- he would have resigned long ago.
- "Mr. Richardson was very hard to get
along with," he said. "He - was very
egotistical, arrogant and exceedingly
jealous. We never could travel double
Darrow's Glaring Faults.
Mr. Richardson, on the other hand, said
that Mr. Darrow was headstrong, heed
less and nearsighted when the interests
of the clients were being considered. His
great fault with Mr. Darrow was that he
was a Socialist and was inclined to put
the Interests of the party ahead of the
Interests of the men who were on trial
for their lives.
DENVER PREPARES OVATION
Great Outpouring of Unionists to Do
Honor to Haywood.
DENVER. Aug. 1. Practically all the
unions of the city were represented at a
meeting tonight which had for its pur
pose the perfection of plans for honoring
William D. Haywood, secretary-treasurer
of the Western Federation of Miners, who
was acquitted of the charge of consiracy
In. connection with the murder of ex
Governor Steunenberg, of Idaho, on his
his arrival in this city from Salt Lake
next Saturday evening.
A great popular demonstration will be
made in which it is estimated by union
ists between 23,000 and 60,000 people will
take part. Mr. Haywood will be met at
the Union station and will ride to his
hotel in a carriage drawn by six white
horses, white signifying his innocence of
the crime with which he was charged.
An effort will be made to have Mr. Hay
wood address the populace somewhere
along the line of march and al.o submit
to a reception, when all wishing may
shake Ills hand.
On Sunday, if agreeable to the princi
pal himself, a great outpouring of people
will greet Mr. Haywood at a mass-meeting
to be held at one of the open-air
gardens, during which time he will de
liver an address. Everything depends upon
the willingness of the proposed guest of
honor to submit to the plans, for the
local unionists place no limit upon the
scope of the reception or the number who
STILL HUNT FRAUDS.
Congress Has Not Cut Down Appro
priations. OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, Aug. 1. There Is not the slight
est foundation for reports that have re
cently been given currency in the West
to the effect that the Government Is be
ing unduly hampered in the work of run
nlng down and punishing individuals
guuty of participation in land frauds.
The appropriation for special agents
and Inspectors of the Interior Depart
ment and General Land Office is exactly
the same this year as last, namely, $250,
000. There are as many speclM agents
and Inspectors now at work as were em
ployed in the days when the notorious
frauds in Oregon were unearthed. There
Is no intention of reducing the number of
agents, and there is no necessity for re
ducing tneir number.
It Is true, that the President wanted
Congress at the last session to double the
appropriation for special agents, and he
urged that $300,000 be set aside for this
purpose. Congress denied . the .request
and appropriated only the regular
amount. But there was a good and suffi
clent reason for the refusal of Congress
to increase the appropriation, and it was
not due. as has been charged, to an ef
fort on the part of Senators and Repre
sentatives to protect the land thieves.
On January 25, 1907, President Roose
velt signed an order that had been pre
pared by Secretary Hitchcock, then head
of the Interior Department, stipulating
that thereafter no patent should be Is
sued for any piece of public land until
the, entry had been personally Inspected
on the ground by some special agent
.or other representative or the department.
Secretary Hitchcock, with all his com'
tnendable qualities, had a suspicion that
every man was a thelf unless he bore the
tamp of approval of some one of his rep
resentatives; at least, he felt that way
towards every man who sought to ac
quire public land.
That order brought forth a tremendous
howl from all parts of the West, for it
meant all kinds of congestion in the Land
Office, and meant delays of years in pat
enting homesteads and other forms of
entries. It was punishing the innocent
in order to detect the guilty and statis
tics show that about 98 per cent of the
public land entrymen are honest. Senator
Fulton of Oregon was very pronounced
in his, opposition to that order, and in
talking with the President asked him
what assurance he had that the special
agents would make honest reports. He
Intimated that the order might have the
opposite effect to what was intended, for
It gave an opportunity to land thieves
who had money to buy up special agents,
and at the same time would compel them
to find undue fault with honest entrymen
in order that they, might maintain their
standing with the Department.
Naturally this order of the President
could not be carried out by the regular
force of special agents. The force would
have to be doubled In order that entries
could be inspected as fast as entrymen
proved up. It was with this situation
confronting him that the President urged
a doubling of the appropriation for spe
cial agents, and It was solely to meet the
demand created by his order of January
25 that he made the recommendation.
Later when the President found the
weakness of his order, and realized that
he would be hardshlpplng every honest
entryman for no other purpose than to
gratify a whim of Secretary Hitchcock
he modified his order on February 12 by
excepting various kinds of entries that
need not be personally inspected before
passing to patent. But even' as modified
the order called for a large increase In
the number of special agents, so the esti
mate to Congress was allowed to stand.
Western Senators and Congressmen knew
whv the order of January 25 had been is
sued, and they knew if was their last
chance to pay their respects to Secretary
Hitchcock who had announced his Inten
tion of retiring on March 4, so they
stood pat, refused to raise the appropria
tion, and soon after Congress adjourned,
the President, realizing the folly of fur
ther holding up land entries pending per
sonal Investigation, issued an order on
March 12 absolutely revoking his previous
orders of January 25 and February 12,
and the old order of things was restored.
The public land situation is therefore
today Just what it was a year ago, and
the Government has the same force and
the same resources now for ferreting out
fraud that it had in July. 1906. There
has been no diminution in the force and
no diminution in the appropriation. And
so far as the prosecution or lana xnieveo
is concerned, the appropriation for the
current year is larger than that for the
year Just closed.
That there is neea ior more
agents of the General Land Office there
can be no doubt, but there Is a right way
am tooII na n wronK way of asking for
Increased appropriations. Unfortunately
the President permitted nimsen iu uo u
ir,t thA vrnne wav bv Secretary Hitch
cock If Hitchcock had not been a party
to the request, and if the President had
not signed the order drafted by the Sec
retary, Congress wouia nave ureu m
rh 'more frlendlv mood, and it is pos
sible some increase could have been se
cured. But there is no ground for the
charge that Congress has interfered with
the prosecution of land frauds. Such talk
Is due either to ignorance, or to some
ulterior motive on tne pari oi .e ""
who makes the charge.

VICTORIA. Kan., Aug. 1. All efforts
to reach Marquette, reported to have
been destroyed by a tornado tonight,

Exact Satisfaction for Casa Blanca
Massacre Refugee's Story of
Slaughter of Foreigners.
PARIS, Aug. 1. A well-known dip

that Italy would send a warship, as
well as Spain, to Morocco, and that a
composite force of French, Italian and

All the signatories of the Algeciras
convention will be Informed as to the
steps which it Is deemed necessary to
take to exact satisfaction.
EXTERMINATE THE EUROPEANS
Refugee Gives Details of Massacre
at Casa Blanca.
TANGIER, Aug. 1. Dr. Merle, who ar
rived here last night upon the German
ship which brought a number of Jews and
other refugees from Casa Blanca, is the
bearer of a report to the French Charge
d' Affaires here, showing that the slaugh
ter of Europeans in Casa Blanca was an
outcome of a holy war preached by the
Arabs for the extermination of Europe
ans. On Monday a number of Arab chiefs en
tered Casa Blanca and demanded that the
harbor improvement work cease. The
pasha of Casa Blanca pointed out that
this work was being done with the sanc
tion of the Sultan, whereupon the chiefs
stated that the Sultan was no longer their
ruler, as he obeyed the Christians. They
then began to Incite the natives to exter
minate all Jews and Europeans In the
town. On Tuesday morning the natives
began their attacks by stoning a Euro
pean, and when the man tried to flee he
was surrounded and hacked to pieces. This
was the signal for another attack and
as soon as the danger became known the
French and Spanish residents rushed to
their respective consulates for protection.
During this flight at least eight were
M. d'Euvllle, the French Consul, de
manded that the pasha provide an escort
for the recovery of bodies. The pasha
pleaded at first that he had no cartridges,
but upon further representation he finally
supplied an escort. When this rescue
party, however, reached the scene of the
attacks, it was charged by a number of
Arab cavalrymen and forced into flight.
In the meantime, while the Jews and
Europeans were taking refuge on board
the German ship, the Mussulmans began
to attack the laborers employed In the
harbor. They fired upon the shore boats
and killed several men, whose bodies lat
er were burned. One workman, who tried
to swim off to a ship, was shot in the
There were one German and one French
steamer in the harbor at Casa Blanca
when the German steamer pulled out. It
Is expected that Casa Blanca will be In

The French cruiser Galilee, which left
here last night for Casa Blanca, should
arrive there today.
The refugees arriving here say the sit

there have been no further attacks on
SPAIN TO JOIN WITH FRANCE
Prepares Plan for Action to Obtain
' MADRID. Aug. 1. The Imparcial insists
that the murderers of Spanish subjects at
Casa Blanca must be punished. The pa
per believes that Europe's rivalries, as
well as the ferocity of the natives, are re
sponsible for the bloodshed at Cam Blan
ca and advocates further the renunciation
of the Algeciras agreement or the convo
cation of a new conference.
The Spanish government is drawing up
a plan for concerted action with France
to obtain reparation for the murders In
Casa Blanca. As a first step a Span
ish warship has been ordered to proceed
Immediately to Morocco.

French Cruiser Carries Ultimatum
to Head Official at Tangier.
PARIS, Aug. L The Pasha of Casa
Blanca will answer with his bead to the
French government for the general se
curity of the city. This is the ultimatum
which the French cruiser Galilee, due to
reach Casa Blanca this morning. Is con
veying. The French cruiser Forbin. now at the
Azores, also has been ordered to proceed
to Casa Blanca Immediately. Action by
the French government will not, for the
moment, tea any further than this. The

Galilee has been ordered to take on board

The French newspapers generally advise
that the government administer a lesson
to the Sultan. They declare that the gov
erning board is directly responsible for
the occurrences at Casa Blanca, as It per
sisted In maintaining the present Pasha
there in spite of the protests of the dip
lomatic corps at Tangier.
The Eclair says It considers that France
has been caught in a trap, and that the
occupation of Oudja by France has only
served to tan the Mussulmans fanaticism
without demonstrating the power of the
government. Advices received by the For
eign Office here confirm the reports that
five Frenchmen, two Spaniards and one
Italian were killed and their bodies thrown
into the sea.
CALLS FOR ENERGETIC ACTION
Government Organ Says Mau
chanip's Murderers Not Punished.
PARIS. Aug. 1. The Temps attributes
the outbreak at Casa Blanca largely to
a lack of decisive French action in Mo
rocco. It calls attention to the fact that
the real assassins of jr. Mauchamp. the
Frenchman who was killed in Morocco
City, have neither been imprisoned nor
discharged. It contrasts tnis course of
action with Germany's vengeance in 1895,
when a German subject was killed, and
Insists that energetic action is a national
duty as well as a duty to the powers.

GLAMOUR OF JOURNALISM
Colonel Watterson Takes a Pessimis
tic View of His Profession.
The glamour of Journalism is not unlike
the glamour of the stage. The novice
sees the outside of th theater and marks
the gathering throngs. He enters the
magic portal and beholds the gaudy In
side. He hears the music of the orches
tra. He Is dazzled by the footlights.
The curtain rises upon a very paradise of
pasteboard and grease-paint. The lion of
the piece struts his hour upon the scene.
The poor boy thinks it real. Back of the
flaring canvas He the shadows and lurk
the sorrows. All that glitters Is not gold.
Newspaper properties are more and
more becoming., like the railways and the
banks, pure corporate affairs. Xiess and
less does the Individual writer cut any
real, figure. While strong writing, backed
by strong character, will always count.
the opportunities become fewer for the
reason that such . writing must emanate
from authority, and this authority will
not be delegated by employers to em
ployes. The founders of the great prop
erties are mostly dead. Their successors
are multiplied by the laws of Inheritance
and the custom of purchase. Who knows
who ii&s succeeded Dana, at the head of
the New York Sun, or Raymond, as edi
tor of the New York Times? Whitelaw
Held owns the Tribune; but who edits it
while he is Ambassador? And so on, to
the end of the chapter.
The bottom round of the ladder no long
er promises'the top. On the contrary. It
promises a life of tabor and penury, with
nothing to show for It. The writers of
the letters we have quoted had better go
and dig potatoes for a living. As to tell
ing them how to get on in Journalism,
they mtght as well ask us to tell them
how to fly. The men who have got on
in Journalism have had to be their own
examples, to set their own copies, to
make their own rules, to live their own
lives, and then most of them went down
in darkness and despair, even as Greeley,
and Prentice, and Raymond, and Forney
Journalism has no standard of ethics.
It has no professional esprit de corps. It
has not titles of nobility, or passports to
any promised land. It Is not even a
good, safe, money-making business, of
the regulation stamp, though the newspa
per is becoming less unstable and mora
profitable and salable as a property, and.
In the larger cities, quite ranks with
other of the established commercial In

There are In London nearly 300 clubs
devoted to the interests of society, the
service (army and navy), art, letters or
sport. Their aggregate membership Is up

produced the first club, but still main- I

Sen-ice clubs include the senior; the
guards, a mot strict institution which
forbids the admittance of strangers or
the playing of round games of cards; the
army and navy, nicknamed "The Rag,"
which ruthlessly blackballs would-be

sufficient to disqualify at the ballot; the
cavalry, with Its 1400 members, and the
Junior Naval and Military Club.
King Edward ia a member of a dozen
of the best clubs In London, embodying
social, sporting, dramatic, military and

his choice is limited. The membership of
