Guilty Other Prosecutions
Bolao, Idaho, March 19. Stating
that ho believes Harry Orchard, in his
testimony in the trials ot William D.
Haywood and George A. rcttlbone (or
tho murder ot ex-Governor Frank Steu
nenberg, told tho exact truth, attempt
ing to oonceal nothing, Judge Fremont
Wood, in the District court yesterday,
recommended that tho etato board ot
pardons commute Orchard's sentence of

mending tho commutation ot his sen
tence, Judge Wood reviewed tho case
from tho time of the killing ot Frank

"I am more than satisfied that the
defendant now at tho bar of this court
awaiting final eentenco has not only

closures that he did, but that ho also
testified fully and fairly to the whole
truth, withholding nothing that was
material and declaring nothing which
had not actually taken place."

munity or of mercy had ever been made
to him. Before he had concluded, tears
were streaming from bis eyee, and he
all bat broke down aa he again, in a
broken voice, thanked Judge Wood for
his recommendation to the board ot

perpetrated them had not come.
18 "INNOCENT PURCHASER."
Harrtman Is Reported to Have Sold
Oregon Land Grant.
Washington, March 19. It is believ
ed in government circles that a secret
contract has been made by the Oregon
& California Railroad company, under
which it has already agreed to sell the
remaining 2,000,000 acres of its grant
to one single purhascr, and that a large
sum of money has been paid to the rail
road company on account by this pur
chaser. The attention of a representa
tive of the Booth-Kelly Lumber com
pany, who has been contending for an
innocent purchaser amendment to the
Fulton resolution, was today called to
this report, and he remarked: "Then
whoever has purchased this land ought
to be protected like tho rest ot us,"
xaeroly showing that tho lumber com
panies would be willing that the gov
ernment should make any sacrifice in
order to give them a sound title where
they now hold a shaky one,
The lumbermen left for home today
pretty won uisneartened. Tbey were
confident when they came here that
they would have an easy fight, but de
velopments before the commltteo were
somewhat surprising to them, and pri
vately tbey admit they are defeated.
Nevertheless it Is expected that an at
tempt will bemado when the resolution
goes into the house to secure the adop
tion of tbe innocent purchasers' amend
ment if tbe commltteo reports tbe reso
lution as it parsed the senate.

Honolulu, March 10 The Japanese
steamship Kaaato Maru, which was re

ing been 24 days going from Iqnlque to

Vice President and Speaker Promise
Washington, March 30. Speaker
Cannon and Vice President Fairbanks
today announced their bellot that tho
present congress will pass an employ
ers' liability act which will meet nnd
orverrouie tho unconstitutionality ol tho
present law pointed out by tho Supremo
court ot Uio United States in fc recent
decision. These statements vreio made
unrcsorvedly by tho speaker and guard
edly by tho vico preeldont to a delega
tion led by Samnel Gompers, president
ot tho American Federation ot Labcr,
from 87 national and International
trade and labor and farmers' orgnn I ra
tions assembled in a national confer
ence in this city. The dolrgatton called
on the speaker to lay boforo tho houto
ot representatives, through him, a me
morial entitled "Labor's Protest to
Tho protest submitted by Mr. Goto
pera and his associates refers to tho
Supreme Court decision In the hatter'
case as the "most recent perversion ot
the Intent ol a law by Uio judiciary by
which the Sherman anti-trust law has
been made to apply to labor, although
it wis an accepted fact that congress
did not intend tho law so to apply and
might even have specifically exempted
labor but for the fear that the supreme
court might construe such an atlirma-
tlve.provialon to bo unconstitutional.
PROTECT TRULY INNOCENT.
Railroad Land Grant Must First
Washington, March 20. The status
ot purchasers ot granted land in good
faith from the Oregon ft California
Railroad company, and their rights un
der the law, were set forth iu some de
tall at the hearing before tho houao com
mittee. The provisions ot the grant
prohibit sales except to actual settlers
in limited quantities and at a limited
price. By neceessry implication it per
mits sales of the kind mentlonod.
This provision ot the grant is a con
dition subsequent for breach ot which
tbe government has right ot forfeiture.
However, a condition subsequent is not
self-executing. Upon the breach ot tho
condition title does not automatically
revert to tbe grantor. So that until
the government in some way asserts
rights ot lorfelturo, title remains unim
paired in tho railroad company, with
full authority to make sales to actual
settlers in tbe manner provided in tho
grant. After forfeiture is claimed, no
further sales of any k(nd can be mado
by the railroad company, It tho conten
tion of the government is correct. Bnt
all tales made within the terms ot the
grant will be valid and will be in no
way affected either by the Fulton reso
lution or by any suits that will be com
menced. PLAN NATIONAL APPLE FAIR.
