DOOMED TO DIE.
Orchard Know Too Many Socrols ai"
Uolso, Idaho, March 0. Asssnsslnst
ing those whoso hands woro against tho
Western Federation of Miners, and
those who refused to Join tho nssocla
lion, nro not the only crimes for which
tho members of tho Inner Circle will Imj
called upon to nnswor. Not only woro
non-union miners murdered outright,
lKJinbs plnccd for stnto officials, but tho
poor tools who committed the revolting
crimes for the Innor Olrclo woro them
selves victim of this committee of
Harry Orchard was among the tools
of tho Inner Circle marked for de
struction. Had lie managed to have
escaped nrrest after having assassinated
ex-Governor Hteunenberg, he would not
hnve lived long to enjoy the f 3,800 ho
was to have received for doing the Job.
Tho confeeslon of Htevo Adams, it Is
said, shows thnt the members of the
Inner Clicle were suspicious of Or
chard and thnt ho had been shadowed
(or n long time lWoro he wont to Cald
well for tho purpose of placing the
bomb which killed ox-Oovernor Hteu
nenberg. Hentence had been passed
upon him, and It Is said thnt whether
he succeeded, ns lie did, or failed, ho
would have been added to tho list of
tools that have been put out of tho
Crimes within crimes wns tho system
which tho Inner Clrclo cnrrled out.
Wfien dupes of tho Inner Circle had
performed so many deeds for the Inner
Clrclo that thoy know too much tlisy
were quietly gotten oat of tho way, and
it Is believed that the confessions of
Orchard nnd Adams will prove this.
Tho news that Adams had added hi
confession to that of Orchard has been
conveyed to Moyer, Haywood, Petti
bone nnd Ht. John. They were told by
their attorneys, but It is Impossible to
learn now the prisoner took tho news.
It was learned, however, that all four
of the prisoners, since they heard of
Adams' confession, have displayed
considerable concern, and for the first
time since their nrrest hnve lost much
of their assurance.
Of all the men under arrest, It is
hinted that Pettlbone Is the worst. He,
so the story goes, was the chief con
spirator, tho man who planned the
assassinations and paid out the money.
Certain testimony given Wore the
rand Jury went to show that Haywood,
who received 6 n day as secretary, had
for some tlmo prior to his arrest been
spending monoy around Denver nt the
rat of 125 a day. This money is be
lievfd to have been n part of the

"Congressman Nicholas Loncworth

tho tirst tlmo that tho president'
daughter has represented the United

Hast Asia had otllcial character, which
was expressed by her accompanying n
member of tho cabinet.
"President Itoosevelt himself is not
permitted to leave American territory,
but ns nn American warship is Ameri

why cunnot the president give nnothor
example by visiting Kiel? Kmperor
William could then choose n return

visits would add much to tbo mutual
friendship of the two countries."
