KING'S BAD MOVE
Granting of Orchard Interview
Raises Judge's Ire,
COUNTY ATTORNEY INVESTIGATES
Plan May Have Been to Prejudico
Jurymen Lawyers Think Gov
ernor' Action Untimely.
Boleo, Idaho, May 18. Judgo Wood
touched off soms fireworks just nt the
opening of court, and It became neces
pary to ask all prospective Jurymen to
leave Uic room whilo tho display con
tinued. It wu nil over repo'rs pub
lished In the morning paper of tho
newspaper men's Interview with Harry
Orchard tho day before. The States
man published the story sent out br
tho Associated Picas, ono from Its own
representative, and two signed state
ments from visiting newspaper men.
Judge Wood railed attention to Uio
publications immediately upon ascend
ing the bench. All were surprised.
When the Judgo had concluded, Mr.
Hawley spoke. Then Mr. Richardson
Bald ho would llko to fay what ho
thought of it, but was restrained by the
presence of the talesmen. These were
excused and then the whole matter was
aired for an hour. Tho Judgo finally
directed the county attorney to look the
matter up and eeo what, it anytbing,
could be dono. During the progress of
tho discussion he said there was a plain
remedy, if it was the intention to pre
judice Jurymen, Intimating ho would
cite all concerned for contempt if ho
thought that was the purpose.
Yesterday five peremptory challenges
were used. Of tho special venire of
100 only 34 are left.
WHOLE DAY UNDER WATER.
Rival Submarine Boats Undergo
Newport, R. I., May 18. With all
hands well and contented, and with a
bountiful supply of fresh air, and with
records for submergence broken, the
submarined Octopus and Lake rose to
the surface of Narragansctt bay at 4
o'clock this afternoon, ending a test of
24 hours nnder water.
The Octopus rose first, and tho mem
bers of the naval trial board crowded
about her, as the conning tower batch
flew open. The members of the trial
board at once went below to see what
conditions existed on beard, and also
to test tho air supply. Samples of air
were bottled every two hours through
out the test for analysis by the board.
The Octopus blew out foul air only
twice during the 24 hours she was at
ilig bottom of the bay. It was com
puted that only one-flfty-fifth of her
air supply was exhausted and, if these
figures are correct, they tend to (how
that the boat could remain submerged
35 days, provided the food and fuel
supply were sufficient.
The Lake also stood the test well, al
though a leak was sprung in tho super
structure SCHMITZ NERVOUS WRECK.

PLAN TO ULOCK HENEY.
United Railway Officials and Employes
Refuse to Testify.

means to block Francis J. Honey In
his efforts to fasten uon tho olllclnls
of Iho corporation tho bribery transac
tions to which tho uerlfurs have
conferred. Stanley Mown, one of tho
attorneys tor the corKirulluu, Informed
Mr. Heney today that the olllccr ami
employes of tho United Rallicnds In
tended to Ignore tho ruling of Judge
Coffov mid would refuse to testify be
fore tho grand Jury.
When the United Railroads people
first refused to testify, Mr. Heney cited
them before Judgo Coftey, who ordered
them to answer. Now the coiiKirntlou
has Instructed Its ollleeia nud employes
to Ignore the court's older.
When Mr. Hcney received tho ines
sago from Mr. Moon ho replied with
some heat that In suoh n contingency
ho would call iixm tho Judgo to punish
the witnesses for contempt, "and I wilt
not ask for a light fine, but for the
heaviest penally the law affoids," said
"It Is ridiculous," said Mr. Heney,
"for those, people to contend that their
relations aro confidential and that they
cannot dlvulgo Iho company's affairs.
I only revret that thero Is not some
method of punishing tho attorneys who
advise their clients to dlsowy the law
in this way."
