Conspiracy Vendors Bitter.
; Yesterday the vendora of this Idaho
. 'conspiracy" atory were made still
! more bitter. They looked upon the ar
; reet of the Socialist Duncan as an
event that would show the brutality of
, the authorities.
, Duncan is a fool, of course, but a fool
with an automatlo gun, and a carving
knife and a pair of sneakers, and a
bunch of skeleton keys In a gunny sack,
might be awkward. I think , I know
how Chief Gritsmacber of Portland
would handle an apparition sot that
kind. And the several brands of So
delists here looked forward for some
thing very dreadful to scream over In
the treatment of Duncan. ' But. bless
you, they were sadly disappointed. In
stead of nutting htm In chains or fan
nlng him out of town. Chief Francis of
Boise Just petted and cossetted Duncan
like some child who had lost Its mamma.
Shriek for Yenfsaaoe.
And, lo, now it is the different branda
of Socialists who are shrieking for
vengeance upon Duncan. For the flrat
time in Boise they - are unanimous.
They want to put down Duncan. One
of them demanded that he be examined
by a lunacy commission. Another
cries that if he is aet frea the Uvea of
Socialists will be in danger. Another
walks the streets yearning for life tm
prlsonmcnt Of Duncan. They have
grown almost bloodthirsty about tne
i poor loon. But dear. Indifferent Boise
thinks Duncan is Just a fool, who has
converted himself Into a little arsenal,
and Bolae doesn't care,
And It might Juat as well be said
here and now In plain English that
Moyer. Pettlbona and Haywood are in
no danger of an unfair trial from any
county of Idaho, and from Ada county
least of all. If the legal methods of
securing a Jury were leaa antiquated
and hypothetical you could pick up any
11 men of Idaho tomorrow and they
would give these men a fair, square
deal. They might, perhaps, vote to take
Harry Orchard's admission of his own
guilt' for granted and hang him out of
hand; but they certainly are abowlng no
animosity and. little Interest In these
Western Federation ofllciala.
The vaat aum apent In securing these
14 counael for the defense has been so
much money thrown away. f-Ort the sup
position that they are Innocent, It la a
fact that John Nugent alone could
bava cleared them. . ,
sTugent Is Sound Lawyer.
Little has been said In the papers
about Nugent He la a man without a
shop window." Ha understands the
men of thla state as Richardson and
Darrow do not. He Is familiar with ths
forms and practices of the courts of
Idahoand they are not Hs Is very
downright and upright tooand blunt
and honest a sound lawyer and a plain
American, who could successfully da
fend any Innocent men before any
American Jury, and before a Jury of
Idaho especially. There arc no frills
about him. He isn't in the leaat pic
turesque. Hs doaan't know much about
Tears sgo hs went to Australia and
worked In Coolgardle as a mining en
glneer m the days when that mining
camp waa hell with the lid on. He
would flght this case to a finish, and
fight It like a man. And If he were
beaten ha would take his beating like
man, too. But he sits Just now a si
lent spectator to this unfolding drama
and his voles Is only heard In court
when hs comes to ths rescue of his
brother counsel, who are Ignorant of lta
forms. But he Impresses us mors and
more every day as ths still, strong man
of the defenae, whose battle ax will
come swinging Into ths fray If ever
it comes to ths flght of a forlorn hope.
Twenty Head Illness.
At noon today we haven't touched
the skirts of tragedy yet or even melo
drama. It'a Just pure farce. And, If
another venire has lo be sought, it Is
not tne prisoner, tne men
will be wanting to hang,
ties of Sheriff Hodgln.
Thla morning out of -61 veniremen
aummoned. 10 of them filed un to t.i
Judge's desk, asking to bf excused from
Jury service. They were lusty men and
hearty to look at, hut appearances be
come deceptive In Boise. - aince the
trial began. Because they were, as
ons man In assuring the court of their
aeorepit condition, to begin with, they
were all deaf. They asserted In loud
and eager tones, that they were unable
to hear any .ordinary tones. But they
heard acutely every word tha court or
counsel said. When the deaf plea failed
ons man r.fter another in the remain
der of the 19 developed a new plea.
All Had Old Mothers.
"Though the nlsht be dark and the
wind cold," Borah whispered to Hawley,
"remember you have still another," and
tha reluctant venireman remembered. '
They told the court that they all had
mothers, poor old mothera, auch dear
old mothers, sick old mothers, ailing
and weak and needing so badly their
aons summoned by the brutal deputy
for that venire. It Bounded for all the
world like a recital of -one of W. W.
Jacobs - Thames wateraida stories. But
It did not go with tha court Ths deaf
heard. The dutiful sons grinned and
forgot the dear old mothers they had in
vented. . ,! . '
Ths crowd In the courtroom laughed
aloud.. It was funny. Good Lord de
liver us, Jut It waa funny, and William
D, Haywood sat lounging In his chair,
large and. thoughtful, with his wife and
daughters beside him, looking as though
they were .the speotatora In the aids
boxes of a theatre.
If the ahadow of a gallows was there
In that room,' It waa a vague shsdow.
Haywood alone refrained from laughing.
Tha cheerful polish aeems to be wear
ing off of him. His step Is not so light
aa It waa.
Xaywood Zs WorrlsdV
Ths worn lines are deepening In his
face. Veniremen lie and spectators
lauah. and tha lack of formality and
brevity" and legal, methoda developa
farce only too often, but there Is clear
ly no humor in it for Haywood. Even
the appearance of the veniremen who
hid In a haystack and bad to be dug out
with a pitchfork by a dsputy, had no
Joke In it for Haywood.
And when the first venireman, Kion-
ardaon, who waa called to the Jury seat
announced that hr-wa born In "the
land of honest men and bonnle lassies"
everybody laughed by Haywood. The
Show might be funny for tha Idle pub
lic, but it la not funny for him. Only
when the defenae sxsrclsed Its seoonJ
last peremptory and excused Harmon
Cox did Haywood am lie at aa Harmon
Cox waa Darrow's failure. Instead of
admitting defeat on Monday when he
tried to remove cox Tor cause, aa Being
biased, Darrow commenced pleading
with tha prosecution to consent to his
removal from tha Jury. The pros ecu
tion naturally refused that and Darrow
took hla defeat badly.-
But when a peremptory was "waated"
on Cox thla morning Haywood smiiea.
Then the smile vanished aa one venire
men followed another in a point-blank
assertion that they had formed an un
qualified opinion In the caaa and were
unable to do Justice to the defendant
Haywood, and there la no uae predict

Implicated Un in tha crime. Collin
Is exceedingly nervous and trembled vio
lently when examined by the detectives.
His statements . aa to his movements
while In Portland and about hla paat
are vacua and uncertain and ha appears
anxloua to evade throwing any tight on
his paat history. -
According to Patrol Driver Graves.
Collins made a practice of Bleeping
during the day and remaining away
from his rooms the greater portion of
the night He haa been In this city
since January and clalma to have been
employed as a concrete worker. That
he has not been steadily employed ia
testified to by a man who roomed with
him for three weeks, during which time
It ia sold that Collins did not do any
manual labor. . -
Inspector Bruin and Captain Slover,
accompanied by Patrol Driver Gravea
visited Collins' room last night during
the abaence of the supposed bandit and
made a careful search for a weapon.
Nothing but a pair of overalls, a ahlrt
and; a. pair of ahoea were found In the
apartment and tha officers then decided
to await Collins' return.
About 11:46 p. m. he put In an ap
pearance and was promptly placed un
der arrest The prisoner made no at
tempt at resistance and readily ac
companied the detect! vea to headquar
ters. Upon Interrogation he stated
that he was In the United 8tates navy
for four years and waa dlacharged In
September, 1906. He declared that he
waa a native of Massachusetts, but
from two letters from a woman found
In hia room it haa been established that
hia home Is In Auburn, Maine. From
the tenor of the communications It la
Inferred that Collins waa compelled to
leave the New England state owing to
some serious trouble. t
When questioned 'this morning ty In-
snector Bruin as to his movements

ing the early, part of the evening he
was in the company or one irony, a
former shipmate, and visited several sa
