PARTS, July K. Gil Bias publishes today
an Interview with Vice Admiral Ijuln
commander of the Japanese squadron
at Brest on the Japanese navyv , v
Japan had not decided. In V',P ,V-"
happenings, to enlarge Its X.A' . -val
construction, the vice edn X ,,,ed:
"We have a naval progi. .i for several
years ahead and we shall execute It punc
tually and rigorously, as do the great na
tions of Europe. Dut this program has not
been enlarged of recent months, and It
stands as It did when originated by the,
admiralty last year,"
Continuing, the admiral said It was In
exact to declare that the Japanese loan
would be used for the Increase of naval
power and explained that this money would
be devoted to the construction of railroads
and other communication in Manchuria.
"We are satisfied with the navy," Vice Ad
miral IJuin went on, "and we believe this
branch will be able to cope with all event
ualities. The Japanese Parliament, while
refusing nothing for national defense, holds
us rigorously to the naval appropriations
and these we never exceed. We are to
build three warships of the type of the
Tsukuba, but more powerful, and they are
to be constructed In Japanese yards from
material furnished by Japanese Industries."
Vice Admlrul IJuin knew nothing of any
Intention on the part of the Japanese to
build warships for China. We are Inter
ested In all things concerning the grandeur
and power .of the Asiatic race," he said,
"but up to the present time we have not
had to concern ourselves with the Chinese
marine. China has not appealed to us and
It is not yet seriously Interested In the
reorganization of its navy."
Minister of Marine Thomsen entertained
at luncheon today Vice Admiral IJuin and
the other Japanese officers from the
squadron now at Brest. British Ambassa
dor Bertie was the only outsider present.
The toasts exchanged were cordial.
Has Large Audience an lie Makes
Cloning; Talk' in Glass
PAN FRANCISCO, July 2fi.-Not a seat
within hearing range was vacant In the
auditorium of Temple Israel-SherUh today
when Dclphln M. Delmas began the clos
ing argument In defense of Vice I'resldent
and General Manager Louis Glass of the
Pacific States Telephone nnd Telegraph
company, whose trial for bridery has been
progressing for two weeks before a Jury
In Judge Lnwlor's department of the su
perior court.
"This Is an Indictment." said Delmas,
"charging Louis Glass with the crime of
br "jury, alleged to have been committed
by giving to one Ttoxton tho sum of $fi.f0
on the 15th of March, 1308, lor the purpose
of Influencing his notion as a supervisor
of this city and the county In a matter then
pending before the board, the application
of the Home Telephone company for a
franchise to operate In this city. To this
charge he pleaded rot gu.lty and the ques
tion of his guilt or Innocence Is the Issue
and the sole lasae which you are to try.
"What Is the evidence here? What Is the
proof of the commission of the crime? The
only proof that any money was ever paid
to Dr. Boxton Is his own unsupported tes
timony. "If Boxton was bribed he Is as much
guilty of the crime as Is the man who
bribed him. That he was an accomplice
If the crime was committed Is admitted by
the prosecution. You have then the sole
testimony of a man who tells you he sold
himself over and over again a man whom
the law stigmatizes as unworthy of belief
In himself, and whose testimony must be
corroborated by other and uncontamlnated
with the commission of the crime before
a conviction can be had."
Retired Army Officer May Present
His Case to President
NEW YORK, July 26. While Lieutenant
Colonel Charles G. Ayres, who wus offi
cially notified of his retirement from tho
army yesterday, has annonuced that he
will, as a soldier, accept the order of the

Trice, has advised him to proceed further.
Colonel Trice himself makes the announce
ment. He said:
While the colonel appears to be the pic
ture of mental and physical vigor, still the
Tliagnosls of the army surgeons indicates
that he has Brtght's disease in an ad
vanced and Incurable state. I have ad
vised Colonel Ayres that if he did not
concur in this dlagonsls to have an exami
nation made by competent physicians in
private life and If their diagnosis did not
bear out that made by the armv surgeons
to submit those facts to the War depart
ment and the president. I have not heard
from Colonel Ayres since and do not know
what he bus determined to do In the
premises. I am confident, however, that If
a competent board of physicians should
make a report adverse to the finding nf the
army surgeons, the president would givn
the matter due consideration and would
reinstate Colonel Ayres.
Mrs. Ayres, In a lengthy story today con
firmed the stories already published of the
events leading up to her husband's retire
ment. She told of the alleged persecution

Judge Munger Denies Injunction to
the Express Companies.
Statote of Last Legislature Reducing;
Express Hates Twenty-Five Per
Cent I pheld In Federal
Court Cnse.
The Sibley law. enac ted by the last Ne
braska legislature, reducing the rates of
express companies In this state 26 per cent
will stand without being enjoined by the
federal court.
Judge W. H. Munger handed down a
memoranda opinion in the Vnited Stales
circuit court In the case of Levi C. Weir,
president of tha Adams Express company
agnlnst Hudson J. Winnett, J. A. Williams,
Hem-y T. Clarke, Jr., constituting the Ne
braska Railway commission and William
T. Thompson, attorney general of Ne
braska, in which he denies the application
for a temporary Injunction asked by the
complainants and overrules the plea In
abatement aked by the attorney general.
The express companies are given leave to
renew their application for an injunction
at a future time should changed conditions
The express companies had asked a tem
porary Injunction to restrain the enforce
ment of the Sibley law.
The plea in abatement asked for by the
attorney general of the state was that
the suit In the state supreme oourt and
which has been removed Into Cnlted States
circuit court is a bar to the present action.
The opinion of Judge Munger occupies
several typewritten pages and goes Into
the case extensively
Record of the Cnse.
July 6 the attorney general brought an
original proceeding In the supreme court
of tho state against the Adams Express
company setting forth the passage of the
act and all Its provisions and alleged that
the Adams company was violating, and
would continue to violate the act unless
restrained by order of the court. The
Adams Express company filed a petition
for the removal of the cause to the federal
court and July 10 Instituted that proceeding,
alleging that If the law was enforced it
would be In violation of the fourteenth
amendment to the constitution of the
Vnited States In that It will deprive the
plaintiff of its property, alleging
that to do business under the provis
ions of the law would be at a loss.
It then asked that the railway
commission and attorney general be re
strained from seeking to enforce the law
In any manner and for a temporary order
of Injunction, pending the final hearing.
The state filed an affidavit showing that
It had not taken any steps nor threatened
to take any such steps seeking to enforce
any of the penal provisions of the law,
except by suit brought In the state su
preme court for the purpose of testing the
validity of the law, and that It did not
contemplate any enforcement of the law
until such question was determined, and
that the suit brought In the supreme court
was for the purpose of having a speedy
termination of the law,
Text of the Opinion,
In his opinion Judge Munger says:
This court has Jurisdiction to enjoin
members ot the State Railway commission
and the attorney general from taking any
steps to enforce a statute, the eniorce
ment of which would result In depriving
the plaintiff of any of its property without
the pioceHs of law and this question has
so often been determined by the supreme
court of the I'nlted States that it is no
longer a debatable question. That the
allegations of the plaintiff's bill show that
the enforcement of the statute In question
would deprive It of lis property without
due process of law Is clear and unques
tioned, but this alone does not entitle the
plaintiff to a temisirary order of Injunction.
The single question presented in this case
is, whether or not under the facts
set forth plaintiff has shown such acts
done or threatened by the defendants
which will seriously or Irreparably Injure
It In its rights pending tlfe final hearing
and determination of the case unless by
a temporary restraining order. The only
act shown to have been done or threatened
by the defendants Is the causing of the suit
to be Initiated In the supreme court of the
state. That suit, Its objects and purposes,
were to have he validity of the act de
termined and the dutv of the express com
pany under all the facts and circumstances
Is to obey Its provisions. If the act cy
Its enforcement would deprive the express
company of Its properly without clu.
process of law, that fact could probably
be shown In that case and If shown would
defeat the complainant in this case
The auestlon, then, Is, will the prosecu
tion of such a suit In which the identical
question which Is presented In this case
may be determined and adjudicated result
In an Irreparable Injury pending the hear
ing In this case? I think clearly not.
It not appearing to the satisfaction of
the court from the facts shown that the
complainant will sustain any irreparable
injury before the final determination of
this action, the temporary order of Injunc
tion Is denied, with leave to renew the
application If at a future date should
changed conditions require.

widow, who is making a fight to get a
dower share of the wealth of John Warner,
aggregating $1,600,000, was In court with her
two daughters. Mrs. Minnie Harrison Met
tler of Chicago and Mrs. Arabella Warner
Bell of Clinton. She listened attentively
to Attorney Fuller, who made the argu
ment In behalf of Commissioner Warner,

from breaking his father's will.
Attorney Fuller painted Mrs. Warner as a
cunning siren, the daughter of poor parents,
who had drawn Into her meshes John War
ner, the banker. All the evidence. Attor
ney Fuller Insisted, showed that Isabella
Robinson had planned a hasty marriage and
that she did not allow her husband to see
her family for more than an hour o the
day of her marriage. May 28, 174.
Now and then, when the lawyer made
reference to her cleverness In "trapping"
the aged banker Into a recond marriage
or to the poverty of her fathr. Stephen
Robinson, or "Curly ' Robinson, as he was
known In his home near Steuben, O., she
would smile disdainfully. Her daughters
also appeared to be amused at the charges.
Mrs. Warner emphatically says her father
was white. She signed, she says, a pre
nuptlal agreement waiving her dower only
; nfter the 'aged banker had deceived her
about the value of his estate.

Them at All -Times.
Many Attorneys from Western State
Come to Boise to Hear Final
Arguments Case Goes
to Jury Today.
BOISE. Idaho, July 26. Senator Borah
concluded his address at 7:20 p. ill. Judge
Wood announced that he would charge the
Jury at 10 a. m. tomorrow.
BOISE, July 26. "Watch these five men
Slmpklns, Orchard. Haywood, Moycr and
Petllbiinc Steune nberg Is to die In thirty
days. Watch them. We have got them to
gether. They are moving to the scene."
This was the dramatic climax reached
this morning in the Haywood trial, when
for ah hour and a half Senator Borah,
making the last argument In the Haywood
case, had woven craftily on the meshes of
his net. His theme was conspiracy the
essence of the case of the state of Idaho
In Its efforts to show that Harry Orchard
was only the tool of Haywood, when he
killed the former governor. "Now watch
this quintet," he cried triumphantly, when,
having laid his foundation, piece by piece,
using only the testimony of witnesses for
the defense Itself, picking It out from the
mass of mixed material, he showed the
Intimacy between Orchard and the highest
officers of the Western Federation of
Scenes Changed Rapidly.
The argument of the morning centered
In Caldwell, but the scenes changed rapidly,
each Hash showing an officer, a friend or
a member of the Western Federation of
Miners, the confidant and Intimate of Harry
At 12 o'clock a recess was ordered until
6 p. rn.
As early as 7 o'clock the court house doors
were besieged by hundreds seklng adtnit
ance to the limited court room, Senator
Borah being popular as an orator in this,
his home city. So great was the throng that
court officials and others having business
at the trial had to find their way into the
building by devious ways, most of them
climbing a steep Improvised stairway In
the rear. The Jury was also brought
up these stairs.
Inside the court, as the next to the last
day of the trial began, Haywood sat sur
rounded by his family. His Invalid wife,
whose helpless condition and pallid faco
have attracted so much attention and sym
pathy, sat Immediately at his right and
next to her was the gray haired mother,
who, on yeiterday, could not restrain the
tears which welled to her eyes as Clarence
Harow of Chicago made the last plea for
the life of her son. The prisoner's daugh
ter and sister were also In the family circle,
the only absentee being the little 10-year-old
girl Henrietta.
Mrs. Frank Steunenherg, the wife ot the
murdered governor, and her stalwart son,
Julian, were early In the court room and
when they had been shown to seats inldo
the attorney's rail, found themselves within
seven or eight feet of Haywood himself.
Attorneys from many cities In the meat
have come 'to Boise for the lac' arguments
and constituted a large proportion of to
day's big audience. When the last seats
were occupied, disappointed hundreds re
mained on the court house lawn to catch
what they could of Senator Borah's ad
dress as the words filtered out of the
Orchard's Trail of Blood.
Senator Borah begun by reviewing briefly
the points made In the opening hour of his
adaress to the Jury last night. He said he
would go brlelly over the trail of blood
left by Harry Orchard, taking first the
murder of Governor Steunenherg and hark
ing baiJt over some of the most important
incidents developed In the testimony.
"I hardly need to tell you sensible men,"
declared the pleader, "that Plnkerton de
tectives had nothing to do with the as
sassination of Frank Steunenherg. This Is
one of the most absurd of the many ab
surd things brought Into tills case by the
learned counsel of the defense."
Senator Borah In laying the foundation
for his argument of conspiracy pointed out
that Orchard went to Caldwell from Denver
and fresh from association with the officer
of the Western Federation of Miners who
regarded Steunenherg as an enemy. He
then touched upon the tact that Marian
Moore, an officer of the Western Federa
tion of Miners, In testifying for the defense, .
admitted that he agreed with Orchard to
deceive Orchard's wife when Orchard
wished to desert her.
The Power Behind Orchard.
"Harry Orchard left Denver with crime In
his heart. The Impelling, compelling force
csme from Denver. George Pettlbone helped
Orchard pack his utensils of murder In his
trunk. Why Is Pettlbone not here to deny?
His silence Is a confession of his guilt.
Pettlbone's absence is an absolute corrob
oration of Orchard."
Jack Slmpklns was ths man who went
to see Attorney Miller st Spokane; Jack
Slmpklns was the man who sent the mys
terious and unexplained telegram to Hay
wood. The wording of Slmpklns' telegram.
Senator Borah declared, showed that he
knew Haywood had full knowledge ot the
case. And Haywood "got busy."
Proof of Conspiracy.
"Follow Slmpklns, Orchard. Moyer, Hay
wood and Pettlbone from Denver to the
death of Steunenherg at Caldwell, review
the testimony, watch their actions, and I
say to you that an absolute and concerted
conspiracy hss been proved.
"They killed Steunenherg to show to the
world that they never forgot an enemy.
Where Is Pettlbone afraid to apeak?
! Where Is Jack Slmpklns, who was at Cald
well with Orchard, and who could tell so
much? He is In a corner and afraid to
come out to say a word for his lifelong
Senator Borah said he was ready to
admit that Haywood was shrewd, keen
and possessed of brains. "Of course he has
brains," he ; "lie bad brain
enough to stari a defense of the Western
Federation of Mine rs the minute he li arned
that Orchard, the hired asaassin, had fallen
into a trap.
"Did the Plnkertons send any one to
defend Orchard t Did tne mine owners?
