Denied Existence of Conspiracy. Mr. Darrow denied the existence of the great conspiracy to murder alleged by the state with Orchards testimony aa a basis ; denied that the Mention was anything but an earnest fighting labor organisation with higher wages, shorter hours, tolerable forking conditions, and the care and itfety and education of tta members sad their wives and children aa Ita high and only motives; denied the with the three that Orchard laid claim to; denied the several conferences and conversations fist Orchard ftwore to; denied that Orchard bad even committed many of the crimes be had boasted of; and pomiaed to make pnoof of hla contentions with many of the men named by Orchard when on the stand and many witnesses of creditable character not connected by any tie with the federation or Its leaders. To Destroy the Minora Union. Mr. Darrow charged that agenta of the Mine Owners' association of Coton do and the Pinkerton Detective issodatlon had Joined hands in a conspiracy to discredit and destroy the Western Federation of Miners. Agenta of the Mine Owners had, he asserted, committed many minor crimes to discredit the federation, and promised that the defense would show that it ns a reasonable inference that they ksd engineered the Independence depot outrage as an "attempt that had tocarried into a tragedy. He asserted that this trial was the culmination of the conspiracy to kill the organisation by killing the leadens, that the organisation and not Bill Haywood ns on trial, and that Harry Orchard nder the manipulation of Detective McParland wee trying to kill Moyer, Haywood and Pettlbone that he might Mve hla life. Haywood's Draft to Slmpklna. In explanation of the draft for 1100 which Havwood sent to Jack Slmpkina x December 21, 1905,- Mr. Darrow promised that the defense would show that Bimpklna had an expense for $223 against the federation, nd that Bimpklna hlmaelf had cashed the check for that amount In Denver, he gave Haywood flOO with the request that he mall the amount to him t his home In Spokane. Of the personal relations between Orchard and Pettlbone, Mr. Darrow declared that any one could make Mends with Pettlbone and that Pettl-hon- e had fed Orchard as he would As to their finanany other dog. cial relations, Mr. Darrow said that when Orchard left Denver for Wyoming he gave Pettlbone hla money, hla Masonic badge and other trinkets, and some papers for safe keeping. From time to time Pettlbone forw-Frotime to time Pettlbone forwarded parts of the money to his aa Assumed Name on Account sf( Black List The registered package that went to San Francisco' contained the Masonic pin, trinkets and paper, and the money that Pettlbone Bent to Orchard at San Francisco was sent In a manner und under assumed names that Orchard had directed and suggested in a telegram he sent Pettlbone. The use of assumed name, Counsel declared, was a common practice among the onion mlnera or Colorado, made a stern necessity by the black Hating of union mlnera, whom he declared had been abused, hounded, denied Justice and driven from the state. Mr. Darrow said the defense would Probably nut undertake a showing Or to the unsigned letter received by chard at Caldwell Jail the letter that (aid -- that" had been sent to December 21 and which Orchard wore Pettibone wrote and at the dose both sides would probably argue their respective constructions of it. The defense will call It first wit ness at 9:30 tomorrow morning and unless promises, Ml ' exceptionally long, to ntake Its proof within seven or eight days.

"f Chicago. outlining the purpose of the defense in combatting the evidence In by of opening put the state. The formalities the session at an end, Mr. Darrow at once took up hla place directly In front of the solemn-vlsagemen in the Jury box and began, In the slow, mellow drawl characteristic of him, to state the theory and plan of the defense to be offered for his client. Mr. Darrow reminded the Jurors of the Instruction given them by the court that they are to keep their minds entirely open as to the guilt or innocence of the accused man until all the evidence from both sides has been Introduced. You have listened to the theory and the evidence of the state, Mr. Darrow 'Mr. Hawley has coverproceeded. ed 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 Steunenberg. There had to be some nominal charge. But the state has told you the case rest upon a giant conspiracy of which the defendant, among others, la a part. "The state's attorney has told you the murder of Governor Steunenberg was but an Incident. They hare told you the Western Federation of Miners waa an organisation to commit murder, to control politics, to hire lawyers and other criminal .things, "Part of this la true; part of It la not me. It la true there la a labor organisation known as the Western Federation of Miners. It la true the Western Federation of Miners has spent money for lawyers. It was unfortunate, but moat people have to employ lawyers at some time or another. "This organisation was really born In right down In a cell beneath this court - room where Ed Boyce, the first president, was a prisoner, and where now the three men, charged with this murder, are awaiting the derision of this Jury. To start out. with, they hired lawyers and they hired the beet they could. They hired Mr. Hawley, now the leading counsel for the state.- Mr. Hawley laid out the plan iif their organisation for them; he advised them; he was the Godfather of the Western Federation of Mlnera and the man who formed the organisation thought it waa an Innocent undertaking. Mr. Hawley was their first attorney and continued ae their attorney for a long time. If there wi anything criminal In their appropriating money for a lawyer, the miners did not know It "The Western Federation of Miners Is an industrial, not a murderous organisation. It has from time to time taken a hand In politics, but we are not going to hang every organization which has done such a thing If we did no corporation would be safe. The Western Federation of Miners did all law In It could to pass the eight-hoColorado, Utah and Montana. It tried to elect friendly United State senators. It tried to elect Mr. Hawley, but unfortunately failed. Mr. Darrow went on to say that there waa no claim that the Western Federation wu an organisation of angels. "Angela do not work In the mines, declared the attorney. "They are the mine owners. Mr. Darrow went on at length to outline the organisation of the West era Federation of Miners. He declared It waa nothing but a beneficial i sodation, trying to nplift it class. It was not until ten years after the organisation of the union that Ineither It. Haywood or Moyer took office "We are not here to apologise for of anything the Wetdera Federation Miners has done declared Mr. Darrow. "It has been a fighting organisation from the first and. If It dies. It It will die a fighting organisation. has had a troublous career; it has been opposed by every device of the min., owners, hut it has prospered. Before the Western Federation of Miners came Into existence the miners had to work from twelve to fourteen hours a day When they wanted food they had to buy It at the company stores; when they were Injured they were taken to the company hospitals where there waa little difficulty In getting a statement releasing the company from all damage. "The conditions are vastly different today. The Butte union alone has paid out more than one million dollars to the widows and orphans of Its members this during the time this alleged conspiracy existed. Mr. Darrow went at some length to allow the trouble and opposition the In union hse bud since its Inception. some communities, he declared, the president of the organisation, when rehe went to visit the miners, was fused both food sod lodging by the mining companies. Arrests have come thick and fact, tke attorney continued.

We will show that is one case, where a cage fell, because of Detective McParland, and sixteen mea were killed, it waa laid to the Western Federation of Miners. "The burning of the Moscow university was laid to lha leader of the Western Federation of Miners. Every illegitimate child born west of the Mississippi has been wrapped In ita swaddling clothes, hurried to Denver and laid on the doorstep of the Western Federation of Miners." Mr. Darrow turned hla attention to the Miners' Magazine, He said that probably many foolish and intemperate things crept Into It, but the editors hid no college education and Moyer and Pettlbone paid little attention to 1L "We will read to you matter from the Miners' Magsslne not introduced by the state; we will show that they did not counsel violence and that they countenanced temperance. Darrow said: "This brings ua to 1899 and the troubles in tha Coeur d'Alene, when Steunenberg was govern pr. The Western Pedration of Miners was getting along all right Then something happened.
