catlntf Haywood of the murder
of Governor Steunenberg was
arrled at shortly after day-
(Special to The Times.)
Boise, July 29. William D. Hay
wood, defendant in one of the most
noted trials Involving conspiracy and
milrder tho country has ever known,
left the jail Sunday a free man, ac
quitted of the murder of former
Governor Frank Steunenberg. It
was after being out twenty-one hours
that the verdict was arrived at. The
jurors were at first divided, eight for
acquittal, two for conviction and two
blank, and then seemed deadlocked
at ten for acquittal to two for con
viction, and finally came to an agree
ment shortly after daybreak Sunday.
Events moved rapidly after this
and hardly had the principal actors
In the trial been gathered into the
court room a few moments before 8
o'clock when u white envelope was
handed by the foreman to-the judge.
Judge Wood opened tho envelope,
hesitated, looked again, and then in
some amazement said: "There Is
nothing in here."
"There's tho right envelope in
your coat pocket," said Juror Russell
to Foreman Gess.
The foreman was palpaply ner
vous and this added materially to the
strain felt by all in tho court room.
The second envelope was handed up,
Judge Wood glanced at it and tossed
the paper to the clerk 'who read:
"State of Idaho against William D.
Haywood. We, tho jury In the above
entitled cause, find tho defendant,
William D. Haywood, not guilty.
Thomas B. Gess, foreman."
Then came congratulations of
Haywood in tho midst of which
' Judge Wood said: "The defendant
will be discharged and the jury dis
missed for this term."
Tears swelled to the eyes of the
man who during 80 days of trial, sat
with stolid indifference written upon
every feature. At last, the ley armor
he had thrown about himself had
heen pierced, and whatever of pent
up feeling had been contained within
was loosed, Haywood's attorneys
were fairly lifted from their seats,
and Judge Wood made no effort to
restoring order as the crowd sur
rounded Haywood to shako his hands
and shout aloud their congratula
tions. James II. Hawley, leading
counsel for tho state, and O. M. Van
Duyn, prosecuting attorney of the
county in which former Governor
Steunenberg was assassinated, sat
gloomy and unspeaking in their

after 11 o'clock retired they pro

Thomas B. Gess, No. 1, being se

8; guilty, 2; blank, 2. The blanks
were cast by Foreman Gess and A.

PETTIBONE'S TRIAL NEXT
Evidence Against Him Said to Be
More Incriminating Thau
Any of the Others.
BULLETIN, 1 A. M.
Boise, July 30. A telegram
$ to Peter Breen, of tho defend-
ant's counsel, tonight from
Butte said arrangements at
Butte had been completed for
Boise, July 29. Charles H. Moyer,
co-defendant of Haywood, was or
dered on ?25,000 bond today by
Judge Wood, who presided at tho
Haywood trial. Attorneys for the
Federation attempted to have his
bond ready for filing tonight, but
arrangements had not been wholly
completed at a late hour and Moyer
resigned himself to another night in
the jail. He probably will be re
laescd tomorrow and will leave with
in 24 hours for his home In Denver.
An effort was made by an attorney
for the prosecution and defense to
arrive at an agreement regarding
ball for Pettibonc, but it came to
nothing and no application was
made in his behalf. A motion was
made for a speedy trial however and
his case was set down for October 1.
Counsel intimated today they might
apply for bonds for ePtitb oenleatol
apply for bonds for Pettlbone later,
but It is not believed the state's at
torney will consent.
It has been generally satted that
there is more incriminating evidence
against Pettlbone than any of the
others, while it has been generally
conceded that the case against Moyer
1b the weakest of the three.
The defenso In the Haywood case
admitted there were a number of
things for Pettlbone ot explain as to
his association with Harry Orchard
and tho sending of money to him,
but they said it would be 'time
enough to deal with these matters
when Pettlbone himself was placed
Haywood today continued to re
ceive many congratulatory telegrams
from all sections of tho country.
They camo from individuals, from
the local unions of tho Western Fed
eration, and from all classes of labor
unions and from socialist organiza
tions and leaders.
The bond for Moyer Is to bo given
by the Butte local of the Western
Federation, which is the richest local
in the organization and which is said
to carry a deposit of 100,000 to
$14 0,000 constantly in tho bank.

Marshfield beat North Bend.
Hand't you heard about it? It
happened on Sunday, and (he way
the Marshfield boys played ball was
a revelation. They took everything
which came in reach, and batted tho
ball at times. The game was one of
those snappy contests which delights
a crowd. All the returning fans
agreed that it was the "best game
that has been played on this side of
the divide this season. And most
of North Bend acquiesces. Wright
