IN RACE MEET
BALL GAME AT
Prosecution Assumes Defense While
Hawood Council Takes
HINGES ON ORCHARD
Defense Will Seek to Prove His Tes
timony Is Without Corrobora
tion Ulterior Motives.
Boise, Juno 23. The closing of
the case for the State leaves the
great battle against and for the life
of Haywood In mldfleld, and now
forward the sides change. The de
fenders assume the aggressive, the
prosecutors are on the defensive.
The State will carry its case on
through the aggressive cross-examination
anl then present testimony in
rebuttal, but its main proposition
and showing are already before the
,jury. As to the Steunenberg crime,
which is the one specifically charged
against Haywood, the State has made
the following showing: Jack Simp
klns, member of the executive board
of the Western Federation of Min
ers, went to Caldwell three month
before Steunenberg was murdered.
H traveled under the assun"d nime
"Simmons" and lived with Orchard.
He left Caldwell the end of the
week's stay and late,r returned for a
brief visit of less than a day. His
presence and movements are shown
by independent witnesses, and the
rgisters of hotels where ho stopped.
Haywood sent to SImpkins in December-
21, 1905, nine days befoie
the murder of Steunenbern; an un
registered letter sent from Denver
December 30, 1906, and showing the
address to be "Thomas Hogan:" that
the writer knew the' alias oi; Orchard
contained the statement that "That"
had been sent to "Jack" on Decem
ber 21, 1905. Orchard teutlfied that
Pettibone, one of Haywool's co-defendants,
wrote the letter. Without
making a request legal aid was ex
tnded to Orchard within two days
after his arrest through Attorney
Fred. Miller, Spokane. Four letteis
were sent to Mrs. Orchard, the sec
ond at Cripple Creek,' by Orchard,
and one by Haywood at various times
in 1905, and It 'is claimed they not
only show evidence of a plan to con
ceal Orchard's whereabouts from his
wife, but were part of a plan to make
an alibi for him.
Orchard swore Haywood was a
party to the plan. Articles from
the Miner's Magazine and some testi
mony as to tho Coeur d'Alene stilke
in 1899 show animus towarl Steunen
berg on the part of Haywood and
other members of the Federation.
Orchard's career has been traced min
utely through the San Francisco epi
sode of the attempted murder of
Fred. Bradley, and the money he re
ceived from Pettibone by letter and.
telegraph. The casing of the so
called Peabody bomb was produced
and the history largely proved by
outside witnesses of the time it was
made in Denver, and dug out of the
ice In the Couer d'Alene river. The
discovery of the Goddard bomb is
established, but its earlier history
and the plot centering about It rest
on the testimony of Orchard. The
reason for tho animus against Judges
Goddard and Gabbert waa shown to
be by decisions adverse to Moyer and
labor Interests In Colorado.
Orchard's story of the first descent
Into the Vindicator mine was corrob
orated and hlB statement as to the
Independent station outrage and mur
der of Detective Gregory on the stand
The story of tho Vindicator out
rage Is In part supported by outside
testimony. The chief corroboration
of Orchard's testimony has been as
to the things ho did and tho time
and manner of their doing, and it Is
contended by tho defense that, aside
from his testimony, there la not a
Blnnle Diece of Independent evidence
against Haywood or any fact that
Independently connects Haywood
with the crime charged or any other
erlme. The counsel for Haywood did
not outline their defense until Mon
day morning, but their cours urlng

The members of tho Marshfield ball

Captain McKeown feels confident
of winning in spite of tho fact that
his team is in a crippled condition.
The North Bend team has been put
ting In some good licks at practice
and will try hard to win back lost
honors. Owing to the Injury re
ceived by Claude Nasburg in Sun

Aside from that change the team will

WHY WE SHOULD
HAVE A LIBRARY
What An Institution of This
Nature Does for the Com
munity Supporting It
It doubles tho value of tho edu
cation the child receives In school,
and, best of all, Imparts a desire for
knowledge which serves as an In
centive to continue his education
after leaving school; and having fin
ished the Incentive, It further sup
plies the means for a life-long con
tinuance of education.
2. IP provides for the education
of adults who have lacked, or failed
to make use of, early opportunities.
. 3. It furnished Information to
teachers, ministers, journalists, au
thors, physicians, legislators, all per
sons upon whose work depend the In
tellectual, moral, sanitary, and politi
cal welfare and advancement of the
4. It furnishes books and peri
odicals for the technical instruction
and information of mechanics, arti
sans, manufacturers, engineers, and
all others whose work requires tech
nical knowledge of all persons up
on whom depends tho Industrial pro
gress of the city.
5. It Is of incalculable benefit to
tho city by affording to thousands
tho highest and purest entertainment
and thus lessening crimo and disor
der. 6. It makes tho city a more de
sirable place of residence, and thus
retains the best citizens and attracts
others of the same character.
7. More than any other agency,
It elevates the general standard of In
telligence throughout tho great body
of the community, upon which its
material prosperity, as well as Its
moral and political well-being, must
Finally, the public library In
cludes potentially all other means of
social amelioration. A library is a
living organism, having within Itself
tho capacity of Infinite growth and
reproduction. It may found a dozen
museums and hospitals, kindle the
train of thought that produces be
neficent Inventions, and inspire to
noble deeds of every kind, all tho
while Imparting intelligence and in
calculating Industry, thrift, morality,
public spirit, and all those qualities
that constitute the wealth and well
being of a community. F. M. Crun
den in the "Exponent."
VALUE OF FREE LIBRARIES.
The best proof of tho value of pub
lic libraries lies in the cordial sup
port given them by all tho people,
when they aro managed on broad,
aenslble lines. Such institutions
contribute to the fund of wholesome
recreation that sweetens life and to
tho wider knowledge that broadens
it. They give ambition, knowledge
and Inspiration to boys and girls
from sordid homes and win them
from varlona form of dissipation-.
They form t central home where eltl-J
sens of airereedc and conditions find
n common- grannd of usefal endeavor.
California Fruits Are At Present
Shy In Coos Bay Markets
Prices On Potntocs and Peas Drop
Few CentsLogan Ber
That good Samaritan of the Coos
Bay market, the steamer Plant, was
delayed last week and as a result
there Is a scarcity of California fruits
such as cherries, pears, apples and
cantaloupes. Tho Casco took the
Plant's cargo, however, and Is expect
ed to arrive In today or Monday.
Coos River potatoes have dropped
from five, to six cents to four cents a
pound, which is attributed to the
present good supply. Coos River
peas have also gone down from eight
to six cents.
Logan berries are retailing at 10
cents per box and are in groat de
mand at that price. Orders are
booked ahead for canning berries at
50 cents a gallon, and while the sup
ply this season Is much greater than
heretofore, the demand Is still larger
than the supply. There has never
been a year since the Logan berry was
introduced In this county that the
supply equalled the demand.
Tho reason given for the popu
larity of this fruit Is its delightful
flavor. Possibly its one competitor
Is the wild blackberry, which has be
come scarce, owing to the growth of
underbrush In tho timber around the
