HAYWOOD GOES FUEL
JURY ACQUITS HIM OF THE
Governor Gooding pcclares There Will
Be No Halt In Prosecution of Moyer
and Pettibone Application Will Be
Made to Admit Them to Bail.
Boise, Ma., July '2d. Into the bright
sunlight of a beautiful Sabbath morn
ing, into the stillness of a city drow.iy
with the lnzy slumbeis of a similar
Sunday, William D. Haywood, defend-"
ant in ono ot the most noted trials In
volving conspiracy and murder that
the country has ever known, walked a
free man, acquitted of the murder of
former Governor Frank Steunenberg.
The probability of a verdict of ac
quittal in the case of the secretary
treasurer nnil acknowledged leader of
tho Western Fedeintlon of Miners had
been fieely predicted slnco Judge Fre
mont Wood read his charge, which
was regarded as stiongly favoring the
defense in its interpretation ot the
laws of conspiracy, circumstantial evi
dence and the conoboiation of an ac
complice who confesses.
It was also fieely predicted that in
tho event of Haywood's acquittal the
Btate would abandon the prosecution
of his associate. Charles H. Moyer,
the president ovNho Federation, and
George A. Pottlliouo of Denver. State
ments from counsel and from Gov
ernor Gooding dispel this view of the
situation. Governor Gooding said:
No Halt In Prosecution.
"Tho verdict Is a great surprise to
me, and I believe to all citizens of
Idnho who have heard or read the evi
dence in tho case. I have done my
duty. I have no ingrct as to any ac
tion I liavo taken, and my conscience
Jb clear. As long as God gives me
strength I shall continue my efforts
lor government by law and for organ
ized society. Tho state will continue
a vigorous prosecution of Moyer and
Pettibone and Adams, and of Slmpklns
when apprehended. There will bo
hesitation nor retreat."
Application will be made to' Judge
Wood today to admit Moyer and Pot
tlbrne to ball, and It was said that In
l?H case (.f Moyer, against whom the
Iv-te is admitted to have Its weakest
case, a favorable consideration would
not lie unexpected.
Not tho least Interesting of the com
ments intuit upon the veidlct was that
of Harry Orchard, the self confessed
murUerer of Governor Steunenberg
niul the witness upon whom the state
chlolly relied to prove its claim of a
sinister conspiracy against the West
prn Federation of Miners. When told
nt the state penitentiary that Hay
wood had been acquitted, Orchard
"Well, I have done my duty. I have
told the truth. I could do no more. I
am rendy to take any punishment that
may be mf ted out to me for my crime,
and the sooner it comes tho better."
When the jurors retired they pro
ceeded to the election of a foremnn,
Thomas H. Gess being selected. Then
came the first formal ballot which re
Rulted: Not guilty, 8; guilty, 2;
Two Hold Out for Conviction.
The blank ballots were cast by
Foiemau Gcss and A. P. Hums, both
tanners. The second vote was I) to 3,
Gess going over to the majority. Then
llurns joined in, making it 10 to 2.
Here the Jury remained at a deadlock
for twelve hours, the two men insist
ing upon coin lotion in some degree
being Thomas Powell and Samuel D.
IJilman, ranchers. The jurors In lavor
of 'icqutttal took turns In arguing with
the recalcitrants. One time during
their labors as the doors of the jury
loom stood open, Mr. Powell could bo
seen at a table poring over a copy of
Judge Wood's instructions. At 3:30
a .m. he succumbed nnd then nil the
jurymen turned in for a nap. It was
a little after ti o'clock when Juror Gil
man was aroused with the announce
ment that another vote was about to
"Well," ho snld, "if anybody would
-.tick with me I would stay hero as
long as any of tho lest of you, but us
I am alone I will fall in with your
The vote was cast and William T).
Hawood was declared acquitted of all
complicity In the death of former Gov
There are many in Boise who in
cline to the opinion that a controlling,
Intluenco with the jury was their dis
belief of Orchard's testimony. Hay
wood'n i counsel In all of their argu
ments aieaped abuse upon Orchard
and told of the general contempt in
which all classes held such a man us
ho. The attorneys played upon the
probability that Orchard had been
promised immunity by some one con
nected with the piosecution and called
attention to tho fact that he had been
treated with the greatest considera
tion by tho penitentiary authorities
since his confession was made t,o a
Plnkerton detective. Judge Wood, in
his chaige, warned the jury to view
Orchard's testimony with great cau
tion and as a test of the corroborating
evidence, suggested that the story
told by Orchard be laid aside and the
remainder of the evidence viewed In
that light. It was not nocessary, how
ever, he added, that the corroborating
evidence should prove every point.
Haywood Issued the following state
ment: "I appreciate the support ox
tended to us by worklngmen through
out tho country. I hope to bo able
during tho coming year to personally
express that appreciation. I have no
ill feeling nor ill will toward any per
son; I am charitable toward all. My
Intention is to go back to Denver nnd
lake up my work where I left off whea
I was placed under arrest."

Concealed Weapons Company Offi
cials Opposed to Arbitration of Main
Question at Issue.
Duhtth, Minn., July 31. While tho
officials of the steel corporation will
continue the conciliatory attitude
which they have thus far maintained
toward the striking ore dock em
ployes, It is not believed that they
will hold open to them an opportunity
to return to work moro than twenty
A reply has been drafted in aiiBwer
to tho last communication of the strik
ers announcing their willingness to go
to work on the appointment of a com
mittee of arbitration. This reply will

the willingness of the compnuy to
meet any of their employes Individual

them any points In dispute which tho
men teel should be adjusted after they
hnve returned to work, but nt the
same tlni'i pointing out wherein they
consider that arbitration dyes not con

and the company.
The Associated Press Is In a po
sition to state that this letter will
definitely close the negotiations on
the part of the' United States Steel

decline to icturn to work the steel
corporation will proceed at once to
make preparations to tosume opera

It is understood trom those in the
conlidence of the men that the latter
will return to work and leave the ad

kept in touch with the conditions on
tho range that as soon as the docks

all return to work in tho mines. In
fact, it is freely stated that except
for those who are under the sway of
the labor leaders of tho Western Fcd

announced that the docks are In shape
to handle all the oie the men can
