Tribute to the
Even John Philip Sousa, the great bandmaster, who has no use for
Phonographs, has been forced to recognize the Phonograph as a for
midable competitor. The two-step king says that people will no
longer go to concerts if they can have music in their own homes so
easily and so cheaply as they can with the Phonograph. This is an
unwilling tribute, but it is nevertheless a tribute. The man who has
a Phonograph has a concert in his own house. Even a king could not
have more. At our store you can hear them any time.

HAYWOOD DEFENSE FAILS TO
BREAK DOWN WITNESS.
HIS NERVE STANDS HARD TEST
Withstands Strain of Fierce Attack
Lasting Six Days With Remarkable
Fortitude and Shows No Indication
of Mental or Physical Flagging.
Boise, Ida., June 12. The attack of
the Haywood defense on the testimony
of Harry Orchard goes on unremitting
ly, and the witness will probably bo
continued on the stand lor two full
days more. Orchard withstands the
strain with remarkable fortitude and
at the end of six days shows no indica
tion of mental or physical flagging.
The day began with the story of the
dynamiting of Fred Hrndley In San
Francisco and tbo defense made a
long nnd determined effort to expose
several features of It to doubt, Im
probability and further discrediting
and to vitiate It all by revealing the
hand of the Plnkertons. Then the
play went back to Denver for the win
tor of 1904-0."i and the spring that fol
lowed, and there was an extended ef
fort to show that Orchard had prac
tically no communication with the
leaders of the federation; that he re
ceived no pay for the Bradley crime
or rnytbing else, nnd that with Stove
Adams, In a period of extreme pov
erty extending over a period of sev
eral months, he was reduced to tbo
necessity of stealing a sheep from the
Globevllle stock yards that he might
Admits Stealing Sheep.
Orchard, to a laughing court room,
seriously confessed that he stole the
sheep, but stoutly denied that it wbb
because ot want. He Insisted that all
through thnt ,ipposedly hard winter
and spring he continued to draw
money from Pettlbone through Adams,
nnd explained that If ho did not see
tbo federation leaders often It was be
cause he was lying low to nvold cap
ture fry previous crimes.
Thu Globevllle Inquiry developed a
jnorGshockIng crime. At this Denver
suburb there was a diabolical plot
Orchard swore It was Inspired by Max
Mallch, the defense claimed that Or
chard was Its author to dynamite a
boarding bouse where 150 nonunion
men lived, nnd In preparation for tbo
murder en bloc Orchard, Adams and
a man named Joe Mahallch broke Into
two mngazlnes and stole 600 pounds of
dynamite, which they lugged home at
night and burled In their celllar. The
crime was abandoned, Orchard said,
In one or these flashes that make his
testimony remarkable, because Hay
wood Intervened and forbade him to
have anything to do with It.
Why He Drew Strike Relief.
Carrying out the lines of testimony
tending to show that Orchard, regard
less of the great hold which It Is pre
sumed ho had on the federation lead
ers, was frequently without funds,
the defense showed that from Into In
1003 until the middle of 1901 Orchard
continunlly drew strike relief at Crip
ple Creek and then dramatically In
vited Orchard to explain the Incon
sistency to the jury. Orchard replied
that Haywood, Moyer, Parker and
Davis all advised him to continue to
draw relief, because If ho displayed
money he would excite suspicion.
The examination next covered a re
view of the early attempt on the life
of Governor Penbody and the making
of the bomb to kill him nnd the plots
ngnlust Judges Gnbbort and Goddnrd,
with nn effort everywhere to lighten
and cast doubt upon the testimony of
the witness. Orchard told a dramntic
ptory of tbo first attempt to assassl
nnto Peabody an eniiy morning drive
through the snow to place the bomb
and a wait for the victim, who was
spared by the unexpected appearance
of two conl wagons that, coming from
nn alley way, were driven ncross the
trigger string at the moment thnt Pea
body was crossing the mine field.
Brings In Mrs, Adams.
Orchard then brought Mrs. Stovo
Adams Into play. He said that while,
ho and Adams were watching Judge
Goddnrd's house, Mrs. Adams wont
with them n couplo of times ns a blind
to divert suspicion from them. Mrs,
Adams, who had a seat among the
witnesses, lnughed when Orchnrd told
the Incident. Orchnrd, who confesses
that he hesltnted nt no crime and
took a hundred despernto chances In
those commuted, ,mndo an Interesting
contribution to the' psychological study
of his personality when he called him
self a coward. He said he was too
cowardly to openly kill Judge Gab
bert; said that he regarded all his as
sassinations ns cowardly.
In five minutes Orchard showed more
emotion than any time since he began
his testimony. It was when the de
fense, In a roughshod digression,
I asked him If ho had not deserted his
Cripple Creek wife, stripping her of
every nickel she had, and leaving her
In poverty, thnt compelled the sale of
! her wasbtub to buy brend. Orchard's
I lips quivered and with tears near ho
lalteringlv denied that he had done so,
nnd said that federation leaders had
, promised to care for her In his absence.
