Strong Assault on Vindicator Story. '
Rolse, Ida., June 8. Counsel for
William D. Haywood continued their
attack on the testimony of Harry Or
chaid at botli sessions of the trial and
centered their strongest assault on
the events beginning with the explo
sion in the Vindicator mine and end
ing with the earlier meetings between
the witness and the leaders of tho
Western Federation of Miners in Den

said that with Scott he had met K. j rtHefs or the argument between De

Accompanied him to Denver on tho smircinc Court Justice McCall and a
trip when first ho had met Moyer and
Haywood. He said that he had agreed
to report to Scott, but that he was
lying to him, never intending to make
repoits to him and never did make
reports. Tho derense also tried to
how that because he stood in with
the other side Orchard was never mo
lested by the militia in Cripple Crock
during the strike. Orchard admitted
that Scott had to'd him that it tho
militia Interfered with him ho wns to
send for him, and that the militia
never did interfere with him or search
Orchard said that he wont to Scott
first because he had not been paid for
his work at tho Vindicator mine nnd
lie was jealous because ho was given j
hard work like tho Vindicator Job,
tvhllo other men got the simple task
of train wrecking by displacing a
rnll. Alorc crimes, great and small,
were added to Orchard's record. Tho
Cripple Creek woman with whom ho
committed bigamy had three sons;
Orchard stole high grade ore from a
messmate; he stole two cases of now-,
hit irom me vindicator iiuiiu; nu smio ,

The defense endeavored in various
ways to mrnw tne snauow or dount ana
Improbability around the whole Vindi
cator story and tho alleged connection
of W. R Davis nnd William Easerlv
with the affair and the circumstances ,
under which Orchard testified he met'
Moyer and Haywood and was paid for
the conunlselon of the crime, and to
discredit Orchard's story that he was
sent hack to Cripple Creek with unlim
ited credit nnd orders to commit any
act of violence that ho cared to. They
conrronted Orchard with Eagerly and
Owney Barnes and paved the way far
tho contradiction by them or the story
told by Orchnrd, and several times
during tho day paved the way far
tho controvortion of his testimony on
mntcrlnl points. Orchnrd stood tho
strain and test very well, nnd held
tcnnolously to his story.
Suddenly toward the close or tho
day tho defense took up the trip Or
chard mado to southern Colorado with
Moyer In the early part of 1004 nnd
showed thnt Moyer reared to go south
unguarded because '"mine owners' of
ficial thugs" had beaten up Innocent
union men, and had sent for Orchard
to aid In protecting him.
It was agreed that they should car

CONCLUSION REACHED AT CON
FERENCE AT WHITE HOUSE.
Result 0f Hie Testimony Before Inter
state Commerce Commission In New
York Recently Prosecution of Coal
Roads Left to Attorney Gcenral.
Washington, Juno 8. A notable
contort nee on the subject of trust
prosecutions was held at tho white
house iast night. Those who partici
pated weie Piosldent Roosevelt, See
letiwy of State Root, Secretary of War
Tait, Secretary of the Treasury Cor
lelyou, Secretary of the Interior Gar
field, Attorney General Bonaparte, in
terstate Commerce- Commissioners
Keep and Lane and Frank B. Kellogg
of Minnesota, special counsel for the
Features of tho Harrlman railroad
merger case, the charges relating to
the coal carrying railroads, the so
called harvester trust, etc., were all
on the program for consideration. The
purpose was to formulate definite
plans on the whole subject, prelimin
ary to the president's departure on
his summer vacation.
Secretary Loeb Issued this state
ment nnent the cnblnet meeting:
"The conference was held for the pur
pose of affording ample discussion
concerning tho matters which have
been under investigation by the Inter
state commerce commission. Tho In
terstate commerce commission has not
yet formulated Its report and nil of
the discussion was of a purely prelim
inary kind. After a report lias been
made the attorney geneial will, or
course, carefully consider it."
The disctibslon took a very wide
range. Much of the time wns given to
the Harrimnn-Alton deal. Every
phase of that transaction wns thor
oughly gone over and discussion was
participated in more especially by the
president, Mr. Kellogg,, Attorney Gen
eral Bonaparte, Commissioners Knapp
and Lane. The conclusion was
promptly reached that, however dam
aging the evidence might be against
Mr. Hnrrlmnn' the testimony he had
given in tho Interstate commerce in
vestigation had given him complete
immunity fiom criminal prosecution.
Commissioner Knapp explained that
ho did not complete his investigation
and that therefore ho was not pre
pared to give a definite opinion as to
the sulliclency or the evidence to war
rant the go eminent in instituting at
tills time suit to nullity the Alton
deal. As soon as the interstate com
meice commission has completed its
hearing in the case a report will bo
made to the attorney general, who will
nt that time take charge or the matter
and determine what, ir any, nction
shall be taken. It Is not expected,,
theiefare, that any proceedings will
actually be begun for some time. The
question of the prosecution of tho
bituminous coal carrying railroads
was discussed at some length, but the
matter was finally left in the hands
of the attorney general for such action
as he might see fit to take.
