Judge Wood Overruled Defense and
Admitted Parts of Articles From
JAiaers' Msgssine Goddard Tells of
Preservation and Discovery of Bomb
WOISE, June 19. The atate today
made a dramatic production and proof
of the Ooddard bomb and besides offering!
furl hep corroboration of Orchard's tes
tlmony, secured th ruling under which
a number 01 denunciatory anicies puo
lUlicd in the Miner's tnapaxine, tha Of
ficial organ of the Western Federation
of Miner, will be admitted as evider.ee.
To Justic Luther M. Goddard, him
self, fell the task of telling the story
of finding and preservation for us a
evidence the bomb, with which Orchard
tried to kill him. The veteran jurist
testified that the firt information be
received about the bomb, came to bim
from Orrhard'e confession, which waa
shown to him at Denver, February 13,
1906, by Detective McParland, Hs' at
once returned to his home and in his
gate discovered the tcrew eye which
Orchard ald he placed there. The wit
ness an Id hs examined the ground out
side of the gate where Orchard aid he
had placed the bomb and found a alight
depression with the soil packed very
hard around it. The bomb wa dug up
the next day by General Bulkley Wells,
who using his pocket knife, cut th soil
swsy and raised the pine box containing
the bomb. There waa a smsil piiiai on
ton of the box and attached to the rub
ber cork of the phial wa a piece of
rusted wire. The bomb nd its attach
ment were at once taken to the office
of the Pinkerton detective agency and
carefully sealed In wrappers and en
velope, that were atgned by half a do
en witnesses, including Judge Goddard,
and were afterwards placed in a vault,
To the door of which, five seals, includ
Ing that of notary were attached.
There they rested until the following
May, when believing the Haywood case
wa to come to trial they were re
moved in the preence of the ame wit
nesH'B and all save three of the forty
stick of giant powder contained in the
bomb were exploded. The explosions oc
curred in the presence of the witnesses
st a point in the suburb of Denver and
the bomb itself, 13 giant caps and two
wrapper torn from the sticks were
saved as evidence. Senator Borah pi'O'
ilnced the several packets and com
mencing with the phial passed them to
Justice Goddard who broke the seal
and identified the articles.
Attorneys Richardson and Darrow
for the defense objected to all of the
evidence and all the exhibits and moved
to strike out everything, but the court
ruled against them all along the lme.
Mrs. Seward, at whose home in San
Francisco, he lived, during a part of
the time he was conducting the opera
tbns against Fred Rradley, gave evidence
strongly corroborating Orchard s a0'
count of his acts and experiences In
San Francisco. Beside confirming Or
chard' recital as to the time, move
meats and locations, she testified that
she found lead and wood ' shavings in
Orchard's room and a screw eye, string
and bottle attached to the closet door,
where Orchard had been experimenting.
She said ner lodger had a very heavy
suit case and she had made up her mind
that he was an Inventor.
John L. Stearns, the agent, at Den
ver, of the Mutual Life Insurance Co,
confirmed the tory told by Orchard
about securing employment a a solid
tor for the company before he went to
Canyon City to kill ex-Governor Tea
body and produced the letter of rec
ommendation, which Orchard furnished.
One waa from Pettibone, another wa
signed by Horace X, I'swkina, and it
gave Orchard, then traveling under the
name of Thorn Hogaa, a very strong
endorsement as to character. Riley
Hart Is, who worked for Roach, the
nlumber who made the lead easing for
tb Peabody bomb, told of the call of j
Orchard, at Roach's shop, In Denver In (
May, 1903, and the msklnz of t
easing and delivery of tho arileli to
Orttsrt rhra the witne.
The mornlnir 'lnn was devoted to
arguing the admissibility of the artl'
cles published, in th Miners' Magazine. '

the Paris Tempe that General Ferrera,
one of the Cuban delegates to tha
Hague, ia an anarchist, has caused great
interest here. Ferrera is a Neapolitan
and as a student had a somewhat tur

In concluding, Congressman, Mondell

"The necessity for any radical depart

"To encourage private ownership of
land has been our policy from the be
ginning. Our people are not inclined to
look with much greater favor on gov

The western states were admitted into
the Union with the understanding that
the publio lands were, by passing into
private ownership, to become taxable.
If the system of permanent govern
ment ownership and control is to be
established, we must fundamentally re
adjust our fiscal policy so as to support
our commonwealths from other sources
than the taxation of lands. We must
change our views relative to land own
ership and depend for our growth in
population and wealth not upon Indi
vidual land ownership, but on a system
of tenantry, at the will of the agent
of a federal landlord. If it la proposed
to do this ws should enter upon the
enterprise with full knowledge of what
