ports, namely Mogador, lrache and Ma

Is to have his headquarters at Casablanca
on the Atlantic coast, Hnd Is to command

Pettlbone have filed their answers In the
supreme court to the return made by War
den Whitney of the penitentiary In the ha
beas corpus proceedings. They are prac
tically indentleal. although In some minor
details, respecting the movements of ihe
accused during some months prior to the
murder of which they ate accused, they dif
fer. Moyer, in his answer, after covering
a number of minor points, says he was on
February 17 a citlien and resident of Den
ver, and had been for four years; that he
had not prior to the acts hereinafter set
forth been in the state of Idaho, nor in
any part thereof, prior thereto, since or
about October 38. !.

the Western Federation of Miners; thst he
remained In Silver City oves-nlaht and dur
ing the following day he was in Silver City
and attended a similar lodge meeting In a
small town In the immediate vicinity of
Silver City, and thrt next morning returned
to Nampa, and there entered a car of a

dun dispatch from the, state of Idaho; that
prior to said time he had not been in the

Proceeding the answer states he was not
In Caldwell at the time of the assassina
tion of Frank Steunenberg. It recites the
ssuing of the warrant on February 12 for
his arrest and the issuance of the requisi
tion papers on February. 13. Moyer states
that Governor Gooding. J H. Hawley and
Owen VanDuyn. the county attorney, knew
he was not in Idaho on December SO, the
date of the assassination. Continuing, tho
answer alleges that Governor Gooding. Mr.
Hawley and Mr. Y-nL)uyn conspired to

the statute of congress on extradition;
that In pursuance "Of this conspiracy Haw

which would make It Impossible for him to
test the validity of . the extradition, they
ngreed thnt the arrest should be made late
Saturday evening. Febrtiary IT. and that he
be secretly removed from the state. Moyer
further alleges this, was to prevent his
friends from learning of bis arrest and be
thus prevented from suing out a writ of

had been made.- ' .

The police have ceased to believe that the
robberies and the shooting of last Wednes
day night were the woFk of negroes, but
believe that the men were all white and
had blacked their hand and faces before
doing the holdup In the saloons. The men
at the atreet car were white, according to
the statement of Flury and his motorman.
The officers made a visit to Fort Crook
last night, guided by a' slight c lue, but
made no arrest. The most promising sus

dangers are now from the sever
hemorrhage he is having, Dr. Condon

Besides the shooting of Conductor Flury
two other holdups were committed in

tered and as easily as they left the other
place, the outlaws departed with their
booty. It was about 12:15 a. m. when ihev
