Beginning of Last Stages In
The Haywood Murder
Court Would Eliminate Some
of Evidence,
Prosecution Decides Not to Call On
Pinkcrtona to Give
Bolso, July 17. Tlio state of
Idaho rests content with the evidenco
it has produced to provo Haywood,
secretary and treasurer of the West
orn Federation of Miners, conspired
to kill nnd therefore murdered ex
Governor Stounonberg. Tomorrow
Haywood, through his counsel, will
rest the case with the Jury, so far as
tho evidence is concerned. Possibly
somo witnesses will be called in sur
rebuttal, but Haywood's counsel an
nounces tho caso may close without
further evidence. Judgo Wood has
invited argument on ills own propo
sition to eliminate certain evidence
from consideration by the jury, and
probably tho day will be taken to
present tho views of both sides as to
tho Instructions to tho jury.
On Friday tho argument is ex
pected, and tho last stage of the
trial will have commenced. After
having dismissed tho jury this after
noon, Judgo Wood stated his opinion
that tho evidenco Introduced by tho
defense to provo a conspiracy on tho
part of tho miue ownors by showing
tho deportation-of union miners from
Cripple Creole in 1903-4 was not
material to tho issue involved, and
should not bo submitted to tho jury.
On tho other hand, ho said the show
ing by tho state that Steve Adams
was concerned in the killing of two
men In tho Coeur d'Aleno district
did not appear to tho court to be
germain and should be eliminated.
Ho announced, however, ho would
hoar arguments on theso ,points to
morrow. Further, tho ocurt asked
for instructions to bo submitted at
onco and arguments on these Instruc
tions may be submitted tomorrow.
Another announcement by tho
court was the determination to .con
clude tho caso within tho next week.
J. II. Hawloy will open the argument
for tho state and B. F. Richardson
for tho dfeonse. Darrow will close
for Haywood. And tho final argu
ment will como for Sennter Borah.
Today opened with tho statement
from Haywood's counsel that thoy
desired tho court to order D. C.
Scott, William Dewey and J. C.
Rutan, witnesses for tho state, to re
main within tho jurisdiction of tho
court. This afterward was explain
ed on tho ground that tho defense
is considering tho advisability of
issuing warrants charging tho state's
witnesses with perjury. Late to
night Darrow said It was doubtful
if any such stops could bo taken.
Tho stato called but two witnesses
today, although Hawley had stated
eight or ten remained.
At tho last momont tho prosecu
tion decided it would strengthen
their caso not to call tho mlno own
ers or Pinkortons. As tho result a
number of the most interesting wit
nesses will not bo heard. Theso In
clude Gen. Bulkey Wolls, commander
of tho Colorado stato militia during
the disorders in 1903-4, and Captain
McParland, superintendent of tho
western division of Pinkertons, who
it was expected would bo one of tho
most picturesque witnesses. Tho
witnesses today were from Colorado
and gave accounts of conditions
around tho mines. O. M. Sacktet,
an employee of the Smuggler Union
men mine of which Bulkley was
manager, had an intimate knowl
edge of conditions in Colorado dur
ing tho troubles and no amount of
cross-examination coujd change

Philadelphia, July 17. Jack
Johnson stopped Bob Fltzsim
mons in tho second of a six
round bout tonight. Fitzsim
mons did not show a trace of
his former cleverness and It is
probable Johnson could have
put the old man out in the first
if ho had cared to do so.
Tho blow that put Fltz out
was a light one to the Jaw. He
fell to the floor and made no
attempt to rise. Tho hissing,
which usually follows a knock-
! out of this character, was ab-

former champion.
Took $200 Belonging to Ilusban'I
and Mndo Journey
Chicago, July 17. Soya Saldino, a
Japanese merchant of San Francisco,
tamo to Chicago today in search of
his wife, who ho said had deserted
him in California and came East
with ?200 belonging to him. Tho
Japaneso said ho would spare no
money in his efforts to locate his
wife, and that he did not wish to
leave her to tho police to deal with.
Ho brought with him a letter of in
troduction from the Chief of Police
of San Francisco. Lieutenant Bo
han informed Sakimo that it was
difficult for him to take official action
in the case, as Mrs. Sakimo had
committed no offense.
"A woman is not guilty of any of
fense when she takes her husband's
money," said Lieutenant Rohan.
"I do not want her arrested," said
the Oriental. "I just want to find
her myself, that's all."
AVith an ominous gleam In his al
Inond eyes, Sakimo laid half a dozen
photographs of his runaway wife on
tho lieutenant's desk. Detective
Kiploy was assigned to escort Sak
imo about tho Japanese residences,
but Lieutenant Rohan said he would
keep his eyes on tho man when the
woman was found.

San Francisco, July IS. The
steamer Nebraska's certificate of in

vessel is now on the way frotn Sallna
Cruz to Honolulu, whero she will be

cate. Supervising Inspector John
Bermlnghnm has wired to Washing

that Inspectors Bolles and Bulger

thoy have just returned by the Ala

who refused to work tor permit

Ho admitted some deportations
wero unjust but stated positively
when theso wero discovered they
wero allowed to return. Sacuett
stated of his own knowledge and
Information that ho knew of a num
ber 'of murders and outrages com

that tho calling out of the militia
was necessary to tho preservation of

I of tho day and last for the stato was
William Stuart, a Scotchman with a
beard and with a burr of his country
on his tongue. Ho was a miner in
tho Crlpplo Creek district during the
troubles and told a terrible story of
maltreatment at tho hands of tho
miners who warned him ho would
have to take tho consequences if he
went to workas'a "scab," and with
native stubbornness Stuart went to
work, however, and today with hi3
native wit' told of tho consequences.
Richardson dismissed tho witness
with tho words "thats all." Stuart

Heney Makes Another Attempt
To Introduce Incriminat
ing Testimony.
Defense Contests the Examin
ing of Supervisors,
Glass Jury IIis Commodious Quarters
nnd Arc Surfeited With Life's
San Francisco, July 17. Tho trial
of Louis Glass reached a crucial
stago today when the prosecution
made tho first attempt to Introduce
the testimony of ten or more super
visors other than Boxton, that their
votes wero bought by Theodore V.
Halsey, acting Hinder the directions
of Vice-President Glass of the Pacific
States Telephone and Telegraph
Company. Such evidenco is called
"evidence of .similar offenses," and
Is often admitted in criminal trials
for the purpose of showing corrupt
Intention on the part of tho defend
ant in the commission of the act for
which he Is tried.
Tho defense contests this right
mainly on the ground that the State
is not ' privileged to prove other
crimes in the effort to establish the
crime on trial. The argument of
this point is conceded to be even
more than Its original importance
since tiie defection of Vive-President
Zimmer from the ranks of the prose
cution's witnesses occupied tho last
two hours of the day and was still
in progress when court adjourned.
The jury was excused at. tho com
mencement of tho argument and
wore taken to a nearby park and
latter to their quarters at the Fair
mount Hotel.
The Glass jury is faring as well, if
not better, than tho Schmitz jury.
The men who are to decide tho fate
of the indicted telephone magnate
are living in luxurious apartments at
the Fairmont Hotel on Nob Hill. No
one is allowed to communicate' with
the jurors, nor approach their cham
bers. Deputy Sheriff James Ryan
and Deputy Sheriff Ben Montgomery
keep constant watch In the rooms
where their wards lounge and sleep.
Tho jurors aro well entertained.
While in their rooms, for fhey are not
allowed to stay In the hotel lqbuy.
They occupy .their time reading,

Generals who defended tho fortress.
In addition to tho charge of surren

Canadians Do Not Want Little Brown
Men as Laborers Among
Ottawa, Ont., July 17. Reports of
tho strained relations between the
United States and Japan Interest
Canadians Intensely, not only because
of tho prospect of war and of the
possibility that Canada may bo drawn
into the struggle by tho operation of
tho Anglo-Japanese treaty, but also
because Canada has a Japanese prob
lom of her own that probably will
lead to a controversy, if not a direct
struggle, between tho Dominion and
the province of British Columbia.
That province has been engaging
for some years In vain attempts to
subject Japanese (and even East In
dian subjects of the British crown)
to the operation of exclusion laws.
Time after time such statutes have
boen enacted by tho Provincial Par
liament, only to be vetoed by the
Federal Government.
The Legislature of tho Coast prov
ince also passed bills baased on what
Is known as the Natal act, whereby
all Immigrants are compelled to un
dergo examinations in the elements
of English, and are subject to depor
tation should they fail to pass. These
have been disallowed twico by the
Dominion Government, but have been
repassed and are now in force in the

Grilling Which He Has Lately Re
ceived Responsible For Change
of Attitude.
Washington, July 17. Charles
Warren Fairbanks may change his
program with respect to the republi
can national ticket that is to be
nominated a year hence, according
to reports from sources calculated to
furnish an Insight Into the machina
tions of the tall Hoosler. The grill
ing the vice-president has received
recently at the hands of investigators
who have delved Into his history Is
believed to have put him far to the
rear in the race for first place on the
ticket. Ho himself, It Is assorted,
understands this, and is trimming
his sails ot capturo tho nomination
for tho rofflce ho liolds.
Tho prevalence of sentiment in
many parts of the country for tho
nomination of President Roosovelt
for another term seems likely to be
utilized by tho present heir presump
tive to further the scheme that Is
said to bo ihcubatlng. Politicians
are looklng'to see the vice-president
become an ardont Roosevelt boomer
in tho near future If not in person,
vicariously through agents who un
derstand his motives and desires
with himself for sticond place onco
more. -

Matter AVill Come Before Ministers
This Evening Occasions
No Surprise.
Tokio, July 18. Tho Emperor of
Korea has sont for Marquis Ito, and
it Is likely ho received the Marquis
in audience this afternoon. It is be
lieved that final decision on tho re
quest for tho Emperor for tho abdi
cation of COrea will bo received this
evening, when the ministers appear
in a body before his majesty.
London, July 17. Tho abdication
of tho Emperor of Korea would
cause no surprise hero. Matters

since tho Japanese occupation of that
country, and tho Japanese govern
ment evidently regards tho despatch
of tho Korean delegation to tho
Hague as affording the long-sought
pretext for putting an end to the
anomalous condition of affairs in
Captain McCrea Tells Story
of Battleship Georgia's
Terrible Catastrophe Averted
By Bravery,
Extinguished Burning Bag of Pow

Boston, July 17. Captain Henry
McCrea gave the Associated Press a
graphic story of the disaster to the
battleship Georgia Monday which
cost the Uvea of nine men and In
jured thirteen others, somo perhaps
He said: "I was on the bridge
making the run for the practice and
taking observations of each shot. I
saw we were beating the records of
the other ships In the fleet. On the
bridge I could hear the command
from the after turret, so I knew
when the next shot was coming. I
heard a shout 'fire,' but there was no
shot, and then I saw the men running
aft, and getting the fire hose, which
is always In readiness when the firing
is going on.
I "I rushed to the after bridge to see
what was tho matter. Water was
already being poured into the turret.
Boatswain and Midshipmen Gravens
croft led the way for their men with
the hoce. I tell you there was cour
age No man knew what had hap
pened no man knew what danger he
might be running. But those men
never thought of self or danger.
That bravo act will look well on their

men. One of tho first was the ono
In whoso hands the powder flashed.
I wont to him, but could not recog
nize him. His hands wero burned
to the bones. The flesh was gone.
With those hands raised above his
head and tho tips of his fingers bent
toward each other, I could hear him
whisper, 'Oh God, Oh God, Oh God!'
Ho could not move his lips enough
to utter other words. I went closer
to him and said, 'My dear fellow, God
has heard your prayer.'
"Ho was brought ashore but soon
died. Tho men wero brought out as
fast as they could bo taken from tho
turret. Most of them felt relief as
soon as they gtot In tho open air, and
away from tho gases from tho ter
rible smokeless powder. That, is
what kills. The external burns wero
hideous, but to broath that stuff is
fatal. Ono man in that turret was
not hurt, Midshipman KImbal, and
I do not understand how ho could
have escaped. Ho, too, showed grit
after tho shock ho had. Lieutenant
Goodrich sot an example to his men
that nono but a courageous officer
could have sot, when ho plunged
Into tho flamo and gases and led tho
way to safety. After ho got to tho
deck he threw himself over board.
If our launch had not been nearby
ho would havo drowned,
"Probably ono little act or rather
one great act of ono of tho men pre
vented a far greater disaster. I
don't know his name; ho is dead.
Ho and ono other stood by tho sec
ond gun that had 'just been loaded.
Tho last bag of powdor that had
been put In was protruding a little
from tho gun, when ho saw the
flash. Instead of dashing for tho
ladder to savo himself, ho crowded
homo the charge and with tho help
of tho other men got tho gun closed
before tho fldmo reached tho bag.
"If tho flamo had touched that
bag there would havo been an awful
explosion, for tho powder was con
fined and would not havo flashed as
tho other did, but would have ex
ploded, and not a man in that turret
would havo been loft alive. That
man gave his Hfo for tho others.

other pending in tho courts through
out the public land states, and tho
present Investigation Is intended to
