Ine Officer Loses Star County At
torney Finds No Contempt In Or
chard Interviews Progress In
Securing the Jurors.
BOISE. Idaho, May 18. Special.) Mrs.
yv. D. Haywood did not appear In the
court room this morning at the trial of
her husband. She has been a pathetic
figure In her chair during the trial and
her face has reflected weariness. There
has seemed something strained about It
all, and a report now reaches Boise from
Denver that she did not desire to under
go this ordeal. At first she declared she
would not make the trip, but was later
persuaded to make the effort. To those
who know something of the life of the
man on trial, this Is not wondered at,
and a statement credited to her in con
nection with her early refusal to come,
to the effect that she had suffered
enough, does not cause surprise. When
she was asked about her husband the
night of his arrest In Denver, she stated
he had gone to a Russian bath, but he
had then been captured in another place.
Better Progress With Jury.
! Today only two talesmen were ex
cused for cause, while four passed the
examination. That Is a larger propor
tion of mfn passing than on any
former day. M. H. Goodwin gave the
lawyers a puzzle when he was sum
moned. He admitted a bias, but his
explanations of his position were of
such a character that the court over
ruled a challenge by the defense. At
the next opportunity the defense ex
cused him peremptorily In a manner
that was rather suggestive.
Induce Soldiers to Desert.
The commanding officer at the bar
racks Is complaining that his men are
being induced to desert. A dozen have
disappeared in a week, two going last
night. An investigation discloses that
they are taken In hand when in town
by persons who appear to be sym
pathizers with the defense, and the
officers think they are furnished with
money with which to make their
escape. Complaint was made to the
Chief of Police today and it is hoped
the thing can be checked.
There have been charges of med
dling with policemen and men em
ployed by the state, and generally the
atmosphere Is filled with rumors of
underhand methods of that character.
One policeman lost his star last night,
th6 charge being that he was too
familiar with agents of the defense.
In fact, his name had been given by a
trusted agent as one who was working
for the defense.
NO CONTEMPT WAS IXTEXDED
-County Attorney Exonerates All Con.

BOISE. Ida., May 18. Prosecuting At
torney Koelsch has completed his investi
gation of the circumstances under which
Harry Orchard, principal witness for the
state in the Steunenberg murder case,
was Interviewed, and today presented
the District Court with a report exonerat

tives all persons connected with the In

that the newspaper men had in inter
viewing Orchard was to obtain news of

Wood said that It called for no action

and directed that it be filed. The re
port is in part as follows:
I of course investigated the matter
with the ' view solely of determining
whether there had been any infraction of
our penal laws or contempt upon the
court. I take it for granted that with
the question of the propriety or taste of
the Dublications under consideration I
have nothing to do, at least not in an
orncial way. In order to come wltnin
the purview of our statute defining and
punishing Improper attempts to influence
a Juror or person summoned as ' a Juror,
such attempt must have been made in
tentionally and corruptly and, if so done,
it is a felony. A publication during the
course of a trial which reflects upon the
court or assails the litigants or seeks to
intimidate witnesses or spreads before the
Jury an opinion upon the merits of the
controversy or threatens them with pub
lic odium Or attempts to dictate their
decision or In any improper way en
deavors to Influence their determination,
is a contempt of court.
Simply Published as News.
I am able to report that my investiga
tion of the matter entirely disproves that
any improper motive actuated any one
connected with the publications under
consideration. It was published purely as
a matter of news, which the correspond
ents had been eager to get for a long
time, but had been denied the oppor
tunity of getting. When this opportunity
was finally given to them, they seized It
with avidity and with no thought other
than that it would be a front page,
scarehead matter. This was natural.

had heard anything authoritative about

concerning him was indulged in. Stories
of his physical and mental breakdown

respondents should wish to see and in

publishing such Interviews at tills time?

. No Improper Motives.
I want 'to emphasize that my Investiga
tions absolutely disprove any improper
motives on the part of anyone who per
mitted these interviews. That the other
statements contained in the publications
under consideration were not made at
this particular time with any improper
intent is also further evidenced by the
fact that various statements have re
peatedly and for a long time prior thereto
appeared in tne puDiic press.
During the investigation my attention
was directed to the fact that for a rang
time a certain paper had devoted itself
almost exclusively to publishing matter
tendine to discredit persons likely to be
called as witnesses in the pending case
and. when I answered that two wrongs
could never make one . right that the
fact that others had not been punisneo
for contempt was not a defense, I was
assured by Dotn tne statesman ana oy

view that they would gladly obey and
abide by such rules as your honor might
lay down forbidding any publication that
would In the slightest degree tend to
obstruct the proceedings of this court or
anything in the nature of an opinion as
to the merits of the cause on trial.
I therefore recommend that your honor
make and promulgate an order along
these lines- as stringent as the law will
permit and I promise to make every
effort within my power and authority
toward a rigid enforcement of same and
to bring before the proper court every in
fraction of same, regardless of who the
offender shall be. "
Using of Challenges.
Progress toward the completion of
a Jury to try William D. Haywood is
being made by-expending the peremp
tory challenges allotted by- law to
state and defense, if by no other means.
Up to adjournment this afternoon the
state had consumed 'five of its 10 and
the defense four of its 10 challenges,
so that there remain unexpended 11
challenges. The special venire of 100

Struck by Din.
BUT HE WILL TELL NOTHING
Father Andrew Sees Elevated Rail
roads,. Modern Steamships, Sky
scraper's, Automobiles for First
Time, Then Re-enters Ceil.
CHICAGO, May 18. (Special.) Brother
Andrew, a monk from the Trappist
abbey, known as the New Melleray Mon
astery, in Iowa, today landed in Chicago
and lived 40 years in a' few hours. It
was like stepping Into another world.
For the first time In 40 years the aged
man stepped from the strict seclusion of
the monastery walls into the bright
glare of public activities. He was dazed
and bewildered by the transformation,
and longs again for the silence and se
clusion of the abbey. He is here on a
five days' leave of' absence to attend the
burial of his sister, Mrs. Catherine
When on Monday the doors of the
abbey once more Inclose Father Andrew
in the mystery of silence which has been
maintained for nearly a thousand years
by members of his order throughout the
world, he will have within his memory
a whirlwind of images of a world en
tirely different from the one he re
nounced in his young manhood. But not
one . of those Images will find utterance
if the monk keeps his vows.
Sees Wonders, Hears Awful Din.
Among the things Brother Andrew has
never seen until today are: - '
Elevated railroads; modern steam
ships; big buildings, or which 4he Ma
sonic Temple and the Great Northern
Hotel are among the earliest examples;
automobile trucks, carrying as great a
load as can be drawn by six horses; the
interior of sleeping cars, electric lights
In each section; roller-lift bridges.
On the moment of Brother Andrew's
arrival in the city his nerves, schooled
to sympathy with the slightest sound,
were assailed by a pandemonium of
noises. Hideous screechings, the hang
ings of car trucks across switches and
through it all the great roar of traffic
rose about him and clamored louder and
louder, and all the days and nights he
has been In the city this thunder of a
human surf has never ceased. It passes
all other wonders to the man of solitude,
and brings to him a longing for the
noises of the abbey bell at New Melleray,
ringing across fertile acres where even
the insects seem still.
Expresses No Surprise.
But whether it be the din or the trains
running in air which make the din, or
whether the great buildings, shooting
higher even than the chapel tower at
New Melleray,' no one but .this simple
minded monk will ever know which most
impressed him. Upon his mind, attuned
by years of thought to sympathy, with
great things and deeds, the magnitude of
the most astonishing city in the world
has burst without eliciting a feeling of
surprise or any comment at all. Words
with him are reserved for those crises
in human emotion where their use may
preserve life itself.
Brother Andrew is 71 years old, and
from the time, when at the age of 31,
he entered the monastery,! he has never
been farther than Dubuque, the town
nearest the monastery. Of the growth of
the Nation since the Civil War he knows
little. No newspaper has ever passed the
abbey gates in 40 years. No news is
worthy of the notice.'of the silent brother
hood, save only that of -great disasters.

MADRID, May 18. Alfonso. Prince
of the Asturias, was baptized at noon
today In .the private chapel of the
royal palace in the presence of the
royal family, the state and court offi

Eugene of Austria, and King Charles
of Portugal by the Duke of Oporto.
The people began gathering before
noon and at that hour the reception
halls were filled, while outside were
large and enthusiastic crowds.
Watch Against Changeling.
The greatest watchfulness had been
observed over the young Prince since
the hour of his birth. Special guards
have been stationed outside the bed
chamber, for Spanish custom does not
permit any possibility of a changling
being foisted on the nation. The task
of the watchers was not over till this
morning, when the Infant became the
r central figure of the brilliant -scene.
In the chapel, seats were allotted ac
cording to precedence to the person
ages invited. In the center was a has
sock, on which had been arranged the
famous baptismal font of Santo Do
mingo de Ouzman, brought from the
monastery' of Santo Domingo. Before
the high altar were two benches cov
ered with gold-embroidered tapestries
for the sponsors, while another was
placed behind the lecturn for the offi
ciating cardinal. In the Queen's ante
chamber were exposed on seven golden
salvers the ewers of holy water and
other appurtenances of the eacred rite.
In this ante-chamber, when the
guests had assembled, the King, ac
companied by the ' members of the
royal family, the representative of the
Pope, the sponsors and the royal child,
entered the apartment. Then, with
slow steps, the brilliantly arrayed com
pany began Its march along the gal
leries. Stately Procession to Chapel.
The way to the chapel was led by
two mace-bearers, followed by gentle
men of the chamber and chamberlains.
After them came two more mace-bearers,
two klngs-at-arms, the grandees
of Spain, two more klngs-at-arms and
seven more gentlemen of the chamber,
bearing the golden salvers with the
holy water and other necessaries for

Then came the Lord High Chamberlain

Will Be Fight for Alimony.
It is probable that the main legal con
test will be on the question of alimony.
Since Mr. Gould has lived apart from his
wife he has given her $50000 a month for
her maintenance. She asserts that this
sum Is inadequate, and that her hus
band's income la sufficient to Justify him
in paying her twice as much. It is said
that members of the Gould family held a
council to discuss the question whether
Howard Gould should pay her $120,000 or
even $100,000 a year and that their decision
was that her demands were excessive.
In the litigation the first move will prob
ably be a motion for alimony and counsel
fees and, unless some agreement is
reached In the meantime, this application
will be sent to a referee, who will deter
mine how much should be paid pending
the final adjudication of the case.

Selden Bacon, counsel for Colonel
William F. Cody, has returned to New

to Mrs. Gould. The detectives told
Colonel Cody, so the latter says, that he
would be paid from $10,000 to $25,000, If he
would tell of events In Mrs. Gould's life.
The Implication was that the story Colonel
Cody would be required to tell would re
