Until Appointment of a Recponslblo
Citizen to Take His Place Other
Heads Likely to Fall.
Sim Francisco, June 18. Mayor
Schmltz was lormally removed 1mm
ofllco by the sunorvlsors. Sunurvluor
Jenies Gallagher waa named as act'ng
innyor In IiIb place.
This Is the first atop taken by the
graft prosecution In the execution of
their plan to restore good government
in this city. The ground on wl'Ieti
Mayor Schmltz was removed Is that
owing to his Incarceration In the coun
ty Jail following his conviction on a
felony charge he Is no longer able to
perform his olllcla! duties.
Gallagher will not hold the position
of acting mayor for more thanra few
days. The resignation of a certain
member of the board of supervisors
will make 100m for tbo appointment
of a responsible citizen who will take
Gallagher's place us acting mayor.
The man most persistently men
tioned for this place Js Attorney Jo
seph Dwycr, president of the Inde
pendence league, but that political
connection is said to render him unac
ceptable to Mr. Spreckles, tbo financial
guarantor of the whole bribery-graft
The first act of the reform mayor, if
the prosecution's program is carried
out, will bo to demand the resignation
of practically the entire Schmltz
administration, whoso places will be
filled with reform agents as fast as
vacancies are ' created. Unless dis
turbed by the courts, tbo now regime
will endure until next January.
Mayor Schmltz, convicted last week
of the crime of extortion, remains a
prisoner In the city and county Jail.
The resolution declaring the may

ed after a light on the Hoor. It was

HoIko, Ida., June 10. The prosecu
tion In the Steunenbcrg murder trial
offered one of Its most importnr.t
I pieces of evidence against William D.
Haywood, when, recalling Harry Or

where he went as organizer of the fed

bearing the date of Nome, Aug. 5,
1905, was produced, identified and ad
mitted as evidence.
From Haywood to Mrs. Orchard.
Orchard then identified a letter
which Haywood wrote to Mrs. Or
chard. It wus as follows:
"Denver, Nov. 18, 1905. Mrs. H. Or
chard: Dear Madam and Sister I
have not heard a word sluce 1 saw
you. The laBt information I got was
from Alaska- I think Fairfield was
tho nnme of tho place. I see that aw
ful conditions prevail among the law
and order element.
"WILLIAM D. HAYWOOD."
Tho defense attacked the letters
and Orchard's story about them when
It got a chunce to cross-examine tho
witness, but Orchard held to tho story
he told about them. The witness suc
cessively denied that he had made an
arrnngemont lor the delivery of the
letters to Pinkorton ngents; that the
letters had only mnde their appear
ance since he left tho stand last week
or that he had Invented the story be
causo his wifo had Haywood's letter
in her possession. He swore positive
ly that Haywood had agreed to write
tho Alaska letter and that Pettibonc
and Moyer knew of tho arrangement.
It was a day of correspondence and
documentary evidence. Ucside tho
four Snn Francisco-Alaska letters tho
state secured the admission of a cer
tified copy or tho unsigned letter
which Orchard got at Caldwell jail
and which Orehnrd swears was in tho
handwriting of Pettlbouo. The let
ter was as follows:
Letter Without Signature.
"December SO. Friend Tom: Your
letter received. That was'' sent to
Jack December 21 for you. Ho
should send It so that you ought to
havo It by this time. Will not write
any moro this time. Write mo as soon
as you get to your now field."
Tho letter was post marked at Den
ver on Dec. 30, tho day that Steunen
bcrg was killed, niU It is claimed by
Iho state that tho "Jack" mentioned
wns SImpklns and that tho "that" re
ferred to was $100 which Orchard
pworc lie asked SImpklns to secure for
him when ho was leaving Caldwell.
Tho state developed Its contention
that as tending to show a conspiracy
and knowledgo of tho Stcunenberg
crlmo Orchard was. without any ro
quest from him, furnished with conn-
' sol within a fow days after his arrest.
It first showed that Orehnrd. after

every query, both specifically and gen

cour,t rose for the day.
