More Arguing Will Be On
Interest In Hercules Was Sold to
Pay Off Prisoner's
Dolse, July 18. A day of argu
ment of the admissibility of points
of evidence followed the announce
ment from the defense that they had
no further witnesses to offer In be
half of Haywood. The jury was not
brought Into court, Judge Wood hav
ing been Informed by the counsel of
tho decision to rest without the offer
of a sur-rebuttal. Clarence Darrow
spoke for an hour and a half of the
morning session. Borah replied in
the aftornoon, and was followed by
Richardson. The judge will an
nounce his decision tomorrow. The
point argued was the proposition to
exclude from consideration by the
jury evidence offered by tho defense
to show by proof of the deportation
of minors from, and the employment
of Pinkertons In the Cripple Creek
district that a conspiracy was formed
among tho mino owners and citizens
of that district to prevent tho em
ployment of members of the Western
Tho position takon by tho defense
was that Orchard wa3 employed by
the Mino Owners' Association
through the detectives to commit
crimen which wore then charged to
the Federation and get public opinion
aroused against tho union workers,
and it therefore followed If tho Colo
rado evidence for the state was ad
mitted tho defense had a right to
show a counter conspiracy. Tho re
ply of tho state was that tho defense
had failed legally to connect their
case in those particulars, and there
fore their evidence merely confused
the Issue. Judge Wood stated In all
probability he would decide tomor
row. J. H. Hawloy wil open mo
argument for the state at 1 o'clock
tomorrow. It is expected ho will
take the entire day. Richardson will
Bpeak for tho defense Saturday.
Orchard's Mine Interest Sold.
Dan Cardoner, one of the owners,
of tho Hercules mine, who acquired
his interest from Harry Orchard, Is
at tho Spokane hotel, returning from
a year's trip to Spain, says tho
Spokesman-Review. Ho left Spain
Juno 17 and arrived at Burke, Idaho,
his homo since 1884. Monday, com
ing to Spokane yesterday.
"I have read but little of the Hay
wood trial, but some of the Spanish
papers have printed a little about
it," he said.
"I bought my Interest In the Her
cules from Orchard, paying some
debts he owed. I do not rememuer
how much I paid, as my accounts are
at homo, and I do not trouble my
mind about It."
"It was a lucky buy for you?"
was suggested.
"Yes, indeed, it Has. I was run
ning a store in Burke and Orchard
owed me. I bought a wagon for Or
chard to use In his woodyard. Ho
could not pay for it and that and
other debts I took up when I ac
quired his Interest. I had been up
on tho hill onco and liked the pros
pect, and made up my mind that If
I over could get a chance to buy a
share of tho Hercules I would do so."
Story Hard to Bellevo.
"What do you think of Orchard's
story?" was asked.
'It seems Impossible that a man
like Orchard could be such a villain
as ho claims he has been. I can
scarcely believe It. '
Mr. Cardoner said ho had met Or
chard only onco since ho bought "
interest In tho Hercules. He it
native of bpaln and went to Bu
Idaho, In 188 4.
Counsels DiffpOn
diiity jn
Mexico City, July 18. Minister of
Finance Jose Yves LIrriantour, in an
interview with .the correspondent of
tho Associated Press, discussed to
day the report whieh recently reach
ed this capital to tho effect that
Presldont Roosevelt had under con
sideration a proposal that the rail
road question in tho United, States
bo solved by tho adoption of the
"Mexican plan."
That tho president has had such
a plan under consideration for some
time was made evldont during the
course of the Interview, when Min
ister Liniantour declared that some
months ago, when he wall in Wash
ington, both President Roosevelt and
Secreatry Root questioned him as to
tljo method by which the republic of
Mexico had gained control of Its
great trunk lines without in any way
causing the railroad companies or
officials to sui render any of their
"Tho cardinal principle of the
'Mexican plan' as you term it," said
the minister, "is tho absolute divert
ing of railroad control from politics.
The federal power merely exerts a
controlling Influence over the great
trunk lines of the country by the
purchase of a majority of the stock
of tho principal lines of the republic.
Details are left to tho directorate
and the executive officers.
"Mexico does not want to operate
the railroads within her domain. The
scope of her control only entertains
the proposition that the government
exercises a dominating influence and
is in a position to dictate when an
attempt to bring about unjust con
ditions as to the rates makes itself
apparent. We believe that this sort
of control will be a success."

Turn Down Wage Increase
Offered by Western Union
Employers Wishes To Choose
From Strikers,
Says That No Advance In Salary Has
Been Offered to Em
ployes. Oakland, July 18. The striking
telegraphers' union today declined
the offer of the companies to grant a
25 per cent Increase in wages and
reinstate all but a few of the mery.
It was a busy day among the ranks
of the strikers. Committees were
appointed and many important meet
ings were held, and during the aftor
noon several members waited on the
General Executive Committee, but
tho committees refused to discuss
their meetings. It was evident from
tho bearing of the conferees that the
situation is considered serious and
there were hints of increasing fric
tion among the leaders.
The executive committee came In
for severe criticism because of its re
ported remarks, deprecating the call
ing of tho strike and its apparent
lack of sympathy withtho local oper
ators. It has been persistently ru
mored for several days that there
Is a serious split between President
Small and his executive committee.
President Small wired the result of
the meeting to Chicago, but did jiot
say what effect it would "bear and
whether he would go east. The sit
uation from either side appears un
changed today. Labor Commissioner
Neill loft for the east today on ac
count of the Illness of his wife.
Clowry Denies Report of Increase.
New York, July 18. When ho
learned the striking telegraphers in
Oakland had today voted to refuse
the concessions offered by the West
ern Union Company, including, as it
was stated, a 25 per cent increase of
pay after telegraphers were at work,
President Clowry, of tho Western
Union said he wished unqualifiedly
to deny any advance In salaries had
been promised the strikers.
Washington, July 18. Washing
ton is sweltering today, the tempera
ture being 99a6. A number of pros
trations were reported. The ther
mometer stood at 79 at eight o'clock
tonight after a heavy rain storm In
the western part of city.
It'a eaey enough to catoh thorn
Muskogee, I. T., July 18. An at
tempt by Henry Asp, a railroad at
torney of Guthrie, to address the re
publican county convention here to
day converted the meeting into a
howling, fighting mob. Pistols were
brandished, knives flashed and chairs
wielded right and left, resulting In
bruises and minor injuries ot sev
eral persons. Officers, with drawn
revolvers, threatened to shoot Into
the crowd if the fighting did not stop
and this failed to quell the disturb
ance. Deputy Marshal Ledbteter appear
ed on the escne and practically took
charge of tho meeting. LedbetterJ
who is a democrat, saved Asp from
being mobbed and prevented blood
shed. Asp, pale and trembling, was
taken from the meeting. The trouble
started when the anti-Frantz and
anti-statehood forces, of which Asp
Is a member, attempted to address
tho meeting before the organization
was perfected. Frantz' forces were
victorious in a test vote for a tem
porary chairman and the other ele
ment then subsided and quiet was
Police, Ambulances and Surgeons
Kept On Run Picking
Up People.
Philadelphia, July 18. The Elks'
parade today was marked during its
progress by prostrations from heat
of tho army of persons. The number
was two thousand five hundred, and
would have been greater but for the
eventual downpour of raiu. Nover
has there been such a wholesale pros
tration of people in this city. For
six hours the police, ambulances and
surgeons ,were kept on the run look
ing tor collapsed persons and largely
because of their excellent service but
ono case resulted fatally.
The other stricken persons are said
to be in good condition, with no pros
pects of fatal results. The parade
traversed Broad street for a distance
of three miles and back and the same
distance south to the city hall.
The paraders countermarched the
last three miles, making tho total
distance upward of nine miles. Few
of those overcome were In the llneof
march. Those who succumbed were
among tho crowd jammed along Uie
street in a solid mass from one end
of the lino to the other. The tem
perature hovered around 90 degrees
and tho humidity was excessive.
New Orleans, July 18. A mob is
forming tonight at Cretna, opposite
New Orleans, with tho avowed pur
pose to go to Hahnsvllle. There is
little prospect that they will get
there on the train and attempts have
been made to secure a tugboat.

Federal Government Faces a
Very Serious" Problem of
Pacific Mail Company Service
Proposed Vessels Would Cost About
$500,000, or $3,000,000
For All.
San Francisco, July 18. An Im
portant question, which affects the
residents of the Pacific coast, will
be submitted to Secretary Taft In tho
near future, as to whether the freight
traffic across the Isthmus of Panama
will be left In the hands of a private
steamship line, or whether the gov
ernment, which already operates Its
own line from-New York to Panama,
shall establish its own line from Pan
ama to San Francisco.
To establish tho needed connection
it would be necessary for the Isth
mian Canal Commission to construct,
to start with, six ships of about 4,000
tons capacity, with accommodations
ior about fifty first-class and seventy
five second class passengers. Such
vessels would cost about $500",000
each, or a total of ?3, 000. 000, and
thero is In sight a clear profit on the
investment of $300,000 a year from
trans-Isthmian business, or about 10
per cent on the investment, which
profit would be applied to tho cost of
construction of tho Panama canal.
It is thought that this pioflt would be
largely augmented by tho South
American business, which lias grown
amazingly since the service between
New York and Panama has been put
on a satisfactory basis, and which
would undoubtedly more than double
were tho conditions incident to the
presont Pacific service removed.
On January 11, 190G, Secretary
Taft informed the Sonate Committee
on Interoceanic Canals of the meth
ods of tho Pacific Mail- Steaniship
Company, and later his statements
were supported by .those of various
officials on the Isthmus, including
Chief Engineer Stevens, and also by
a long statement from Chairman
Shonts. 1
On January 31st, R. P. Schwerin,
vice-president and general manager
of the Pacific Mail Steamship Com
pany, appeared before the com
mittee, and made a lengthy expla
nation of his side of the case, to
gether with a pathetic appeal for
sympathy for a privately-owned line,
which had long struggled for a prof
itable existence. Schwerin was able
to show that thero had been many
faults hi the service across tho Isth
mus, and although many of his as
sertions were subsequently refuted,
ho managed to impress on tho com
mittee thnt the Panama Railway
was almost as much to blame as his
own line.
Owing to the congested condition
of affairs on the isthmus, tho lack
of organization which then prevail
ed, and tho necessity of giving right
of way to certain supplies essential
to the accomplishment of complete
saniattlon on tho isthmus, tho Pana
ma Railway had not been able satis
factorily to handle tho bublncss of
private shippers, hut it is claimed
by the officials on the isthmus that,
while tho Panama Railway has been
double-tracked, tho terminal facili
ties perfected, tho steamship lino
from Now York completely organized
and the servlco between Now York
and Panama brought up to a high
state of efficiency, the service of tho
Pacific Mall Steamship Company has
grown steadily worse.
Another occasion of Indignation to
tho officials of the Panama Railway i
and the Canal Commission is that
the Pacific Mail Steamship Company
appears to bo seeking to convoy tho
iraprcs Ion that tho grayo defects Ja'kefllcionc i tho government line,

as aids to Cupid and antagonists to
race suicide was the novel idea advo
cated today at an Interstate confer
ence of women workers held In Hull
House. It was one of tho first three
of that character ever held in Amer
ica, two others being conducted
simultaneously In Boston and New
York. Miss S. P. Breckenridgo, as
sistant dean of women at the Uni
versity of Chicago, appeared as ono
of the champions of the idea and
made a strong plea in favor of tho
labor unions giving dowries to
"We believe In this marriage dow
ry," declared Miss Breckenrldge.
"It places the marriage question upon
a serious basis. Tho unions have
their death and sick benefits, and a
marriage benefit or 'dowry would be
quite In order. If a woman unionist
is going to be married, 3he must
be taught that It is a serious under
taking, but, at the same time, a plan
that Is favored by the organization
to which she belongs. The experi
ence she acquires by being a unionist
and wage earner will enable her to
spend money wisely after she Is mar
ried." Tho subsidizing of the god of love
was first suggested by Miss Rose
Pfanstli, delegate from the Cigar
Makers' Union.
