noiSE, June 34. A great crowd gathered
thl morning In the room where W. D. Hay.
wood la on trial, to hear the speech of
Clarence g. barrow, denning tha purposes
of the defense In combatting tha evldenco
put In by the state.
Tha formalities of opening the session at
n end, Mr. Darrow at once took up hla
Place directly In front of the twelve solsmn
vlsaged men In the Jury dot and began In
the alow, mellow drawl characteristic of
him to atata the theory and plan of the
defense to be offered for hla client.
Mr. Darrow reminded the Jurors of tho
Instructions given them by the court that
they are to keep their minds entirely open
a to the guilt or Innorense of tha accused
man until all the evidence from both aides
has been Introduced.
"You have listened to the theory and the
ivldenee of the state," Mr. Darrow pro
ceeded. "Mr. Hawley has covered a wide
ground In hla opening for the state and we
will have to meet him step by step. The
defendant here la charged nominally with
the murder of former Governor Steunen
berg. There had to be some nominal
charge. But the state has told you the
case rests upon a giant conspiracy of which
the defendant, among others, la a part.
"The state's attorney has told you the
murder of Governor Bteunenberg was but
an Incident. They have told you the West
ern Federation of Miners was an organisa
tion to commit murder, to control pollttca.
' to hire lawyers and other criminal things.
Birth of tho Federation.
"Part of this Is true; part of It Is not
true. It Is true there Is a labor organisa
tion known as the Western Federation of
Mlnera. It la true the Western Federation
of Miner has spent money for lawyers. It
was unfortunate, but most people have to
employ lawyera at aomc time or another.
This organisation waa really born Ifi 1891-
1893, light down In a cell beneath this court
room, where Ed Boyce, the first president.
waa a prisoner and where now the three
men charged with this murder are await
ing the Judgment of this Jury. To start
Orrt wrthtHey -hired 1nwyar,nnd they hired
the best they could. They hired Mr. Haw
ley. now the leading counsel for the state.
Mr Hawley laid out the plon of their or
ganisation for them; he advised them he
was the godfather of the Western Federa
tion of Miners and the men who formed
the organisation thought It waa an Inno
cent undertaking. ' Mr. Hawley waa their
flrat attorney and continued as their at
torney for a long time. If there was any
thing criminal In their appropriating money
for a lawyer the miners Aid not know It.
"The Western Federation of Miners Is an
Industrial, not a murderous organization."
Work of tho Federation.
The Western Federation of Mlnera did
all It could to pass the eight hour law In
Colorado. Utah and Montana. It tried to
elect friendly United States senators. It
tried to elect Mr. Hawley, but unfortun
ately failed."
Mr. Darrow went on to say that there
was no claim that the Western Federation
of Mlnera waa an organisation of angels.
"Angels do not work In the mines," de
clared the attorney, "they are the mine
Mr. Darrow wont on at length to outline
the organisation of the Western Federa
tion of Miners. He declared It was noth
ing but a beneficial association, trying to
uplift He class. It was not until ten years
after the organisation of the union that
either Haywood or Moyer took office In It.
"We are not hero to apologise for any
thing the Western Federation of Miners
lias done." declared Mr. Darrow. It haa
been a fighting organisation from the first
and If It dies It will die a fighting organisa
tion. It haa had a troubloua career; It has
been opposed by every device of the mine
owners, but It haa prospered. Before the
Western Federation of Miners came Into
existence the miners had to work from
twelve to fourteen hours a day. When they
ranted food they had to boy tt at the
tompany atorea. When they were Injured
they were taken to the company hospitals.
Whero there waa little difficulty getUng a
statement releasing" the company from all
tamagu, i
"The condition are vastly different to
lay. The Butte union alone haa produced
more than $1,000,000 to the widow and or
phans' of Its members this during tha time
ahla alleged criminal conspiracy existed."
Opposition to Union.
Mr. Darrow went at some length to show
The trouble and opposition the union haa

Ilea, he declared, the president of the or
ganisation when ha went to visit the miners
waa refused both board and lodging by the

Carlos Waddlng-toa Oen fief ore Court
on Charge of Killing; Senor
BRUSSELS, June 14.-The trial of Carlos
Wartdlngton, 16-year-old son of Bcnor Luis
Waddlngton, former charge d'affaires of
Chill at Brussels, on tha charge of mur
dering Senor Balmaceda, secretary of tho
Chilian legation, February 24 last, opened
this morning. Tho court was crowded with
society people and diplomats.
Balmaceda waa engaged to be married to
the daughter of Senor Waddlngton. The
murder was committed on tha evening of
the official engagement dinner. A few days
before the tragedy Balmaceda requested
the Waddingtons to postpone the wedding
ceremony, and on the morning of February
24 he called upon Mrs. Waddlngton and an
nouced his declaration to withdraw from
the marriage altogether. He admitted. It Is
charged, that he had behaved Improperly
towards Mlsa Waddlngton, but accused the
young woman of having misbehaved before
he met her. Later when young Carlos
Waddlngton found his mother prostrated as
a result of the Interview with Balmaceda
he drove to the homo of the latter, who
was his personal friend, and, after a quar
rel, shot and killed him.
The contention of the Balmsceda family
Is that the Waddingtons had tried to force
the marriage upon the young aecretary of
legation and that upon his refusal to marry
they resolved to get rid of him. The Wad
dingtons submit as Justification for Carlos'
act that Balmaceda had refused to redress
the wrong he had done Miss Waddlngton.

In Ronlh Omaha le
The only apparent change In the busi
ness of the South Omaha packers Monday
In relation to the post-mortem Inspection
fight was the receipt of heavy consign
ments of cattle from territory heretofore
exclusively St. Joseph's. This was at
tributed wholly and directly to the action
of the Live Stock exchange at St. Joe In
breaking away from exchangee In thie
and other cities and adopting the post
mortem inspection for dairy rows.
General Manager Murphy made good his
declaration of Sunday to Tho Bee that tho
Cuclahy Packing company has not broken
the agreement of the packers and decided
to Ignore the past-mortem rule. Hia buy
ers are continuing to operate under that
rule. Jn this respect no change whatever
was noted Monday at South Omaha.
Karly trains Monday morning and espe
cially that of the Burlington, contained
many consignments of stock from territory
heretofore dominated by St. Joseph. The
public Is fully alive to the situation, say
the commission men, and will not patronise
any packing center which will compromise
on this Issue. Hence the shipments from
other southeastern sccttotia of the state
and southwestern Iowa, making a striking
novelty in the South Omaha market. It Is
anticipated still larger consignments will
be on hand with the opening of another
All sides at the exchange say they will
fight out the battle to a finish and that
the present time Is aa opportune as any
for making the trial.
Cnuatar Stands Pat.
"So far aa the Cudahy Packing, com
pany at South Omaha Is concerned It will
buy she cattle and other cattle Monday
under the same regulations aa It bought
Saturday and It haa not there or else
where, so far as we are authorized, made
any change In Its position on this matter
of post-mortem Inspection of dairy cows.
We have not broken away from the other
packers. We stand by the agreement."
This statement wns made to The Bee
last night by M. R. Murphy, general man
ager of the Cudnhy Packing company at
South Omaha with reference to the story
from Kansas City to the effect that that
company would buy cattle at the Kawvllle
yards Monday morning subject to the old
conditions, regardless of the post-mortem
"We might agree to such a compromise
as was effected at St. Joseph," added Mr.
"The exchanges and commission men In
other cities condemn the action at St. Joe
as a betrayal of their Interests by the
exchange there," he waa reminded.
"Betrayal howT" he asked.. "It'a not a
betrayal." -
When it was suggested the commission
men took the view that If they gave In
on the rule as to dairy cows It would be
only a matter of time until they would
be forced to yield with reference to other
cattle, Mr. Murphy said:
"They have no right to assume any
such thing."
Asked what effect the controversy was
having on the market, Mr. Murphy said
It was making It decidedly Irregular and
"It Is hard for anyone to tell Just where
we are 'at.' I think the result In South
Omaha will be some such compromise as
was effected at St. Joe."
Unwritten Law to Be Defense In
Caae that la Attracting
Wlda Attention.
HOUSTON. Va.. June 24. The trial of
former Judge Loving of Nelson county, for
the murder of Theodore Estes, son of Sher-
Iff M. K. Estes of Nelson county, began In
the circuit court here today. Judge Will
lam R. Barksdale will preside. Both the
prosecution and the defense announced
their readiness for the trial. The trial
promises to eclipse In sensational Interest
the McCaue and the Strother-Bywaters
case In Culpepper. It will put to test sgatn
the much talked of "unwritten law."
Judge Loving, armed with a double-barrelled
shotgun, Instantly killed Estes while
he was unloading a car of fertiliser In Oak
Ridge on April 22. The ahootlng was the
sequel to a buggy ride taken on the even
ing prior to the homicide by Estes with
MIms Elizabeth living, the 19-year-old
daughter of Judge Loving. The girl, when

Fourteen Supervisors Who Confessed

Jury Returns Verdict Aantnst Former
Police Coarl Merit on Seven
Lee Grler, former clerk of police CMirt,
was found guilty by a Jury in criminal
court yesterday afternoon on seven counts
charging misappropriation of lines and
court costs collected by him and not
turned Into the city treasury. The Jury
recomnif ml.vl leniency. The maximum pen
alty attached to the offense Is six months
In the county Jail and a fine of H.'"C0. At
torney John O. Yelser announced he
would appeal the case to the supreme
court on the grounds the Information did
not state a crime.
The Jury went out a few minutes after
1J o'clock and returned with the verdict
at 8:). Orier was remanded to the cus
tody of the sheriff, but wns Inter n leased
on his old bond, which will be sudlchnt
until the motion for a new trial Is argued.
Grler went on the witness Btand In
his own behalf Monday morning
and offered as a defense to tho
charge of misappropriation of funds ss
police court clerk, testimony to the effect
he had never received the money for which
he had signed receipts and which he had not
turned in. Ha said it frequently happened
that circumstances surrounding a particu
lar case would Justify his Issuing a release
from Jail without actually receiving the
money. In other cases he sal.l ho would
Issue a receipt upon a guarantee from
some business man that the money would
be paid or upon a check. In many cases
the guarantee would not be made good or
the check would be turned down at tho
bank. He said he turned over all tho money
he actually received.
Much of Grler's testimony on this point
was ruled out Dy the court after aome
heated passages between the court and At
torney John O. Yelser for Grler.
"I was not drunk the day I went to sleep
In court," said Grler In answer to a ques
tion from his attorney. "I had had no
sleep three nights In succession, owing to
the worry of this esse. That day I went to
my sister's for lunch and came back to
the court room and went to sleep from ex
haustion." Arguments In the case were very short,
taking up less than an hour. Deputy County
Attorney Mngney opened and closed for the
state and John O. Yelser made the plea for
the defense. The case ,went to the Jury
shortly after noon.
