Registry Clerks Corroborate Story of Remittances-Former Governor Peabody
on Stand-Full Account of Orchard's Early Career in Brighton
Holse, June 15.���The prosecution In
the Steunenberg murder case won its
fight today for the admission of the contents of a telegram Steve Adams Bent
from Ogdeu to tho defendant, Haywood,
at Denver, In June, 1903, and Detective
Pender, of Ogden, was permitted to testify as to the contonls. The message
was an appeal from Adams to Haywood
for money. The state then produced
and seemed the admission of six drafts
sent by Haywood to Jack Slmpkins at
various times in 1904, 1905 and 1906.
One was sent just before and one after
the Steunenb.rg murder, and the purpose for which they were introduced
was to show Hie relations of Haywood
and Slmpkins who aided Harry Orchard
In the first attempt to kill Steunenberg.
The state next produced the fragments
ot the piBtol and device by which tbe in-
lernal machine, pluced in the Vindicator mine, was Bel off, and this led to a
general digression Into the whole story
of the Cripple Oeek strike of 1903-04, In
which the defence sought to show violence and incitement to violence by
agents and officers of the mine owners'
association, and high-handed injustice
by tile militia after martial law was declared. 'I hen the play went back to the
Peabody bomb lo prove Its recovery
from the Coeur d'Alene river. Former
Governor Peabody, Mrs. Peabody and
Miss Peal.oily had seals within the rail,
Intently watching the production of the
bomb easing which so long held tragedy
lor (hem.
Charles T. Hunch, a plumber, testified that he made the caning ot what
Is known as tbe "Peabody bomb." It
��as made to order. He Identified the
bomb casing, examining it carefully. He
said he did not think he could identify
the person who ordered it, and did not
know Orchard.
Miss Cora May Peabody, daughter of
former Governor Peabody, was one of
the last witnesses at tbe morning session. She testified to seeing two men
near her carriage during her father's
term of office. Her mother and sister
were with ber. Orchard testified that
one night he waited to shoot the governor but ladies get out of the carriage.
E. F. Richardson cross-examined Miss
Peabody closely. She was extremely
nervous but answered every question
without contradiction. Richardson's
questions directed to an effort to show
that the witness was endeavoring to
Roister up Orchard's testimony. Former
Governor Peabody was the last witness.
He saw Orchard In Canon Cily at the
time Orchard said he went there for the
purpose of killing the governor.
(Special Correspondence.)
Brighton, June 10.���There are five
stages in the life of Albert Horsley, tbe
sell coutessed murderer, whose gruesome
story, coming from the scene of the
Haywood trial, gives him an almost unparalleled criminal record, the very conception of which is revolting even to
the Imagination.
This, the last stage, recalls all of the
others to the minds of the people among
whom he was nilseil. He came In touch
Willi the community first as a farmer's
helper, then as a clieesemaker, then as
a factory owner, then, finally, came tho
beginning of the end. As u suspected
Incendiary, he became a fugitive, took
an assumed name, wndod deeper und
deeper Into the sea of crime, until now
he is seen beyond his depth, nn object
of pity from some of those who know
him here, and of indignation on the part
of others, who say It would have
leavened tho awful lump had Orchurd
remained Orcnard and gone to his account unknown, taking his shamo with
Tho few who formerly knew Horsley
in this part of tho country could not
now. If they would, remain Ignorant. His
slory in the witness box spread like
lightning as soon as Orchard was Identified iib Albert Horsley, and, as an unprecedented Bonsntlon, nothing else is
talked about. There Ib hardly a merchant, who has done business in
Brighton for 16 years or more, but can
recall some transaction with llorsloy,
and It almost invariably had a feature
to It which Indicated the man's lunate
tendency to trickery and deception. The
same niny bo said of Wooler, the tillage about 10 miles north of here, near
which he was born. Alherl had no education beyond that obtained by brief attendance nt the township school.
Horsley's confessions concerning hlB
final exploits here are not as much a
revelation as they are a confirmation.
In the year 1895-91* he owned two cheese
factories���one at Hilton, four miles
north of the village, and another just
one mile north. Mr. Gilbert Rattan, of
Murray, who knew Horsley ever since
he was a boy, says that at one time the
young man was doing bo well with his
factories that he was clearing $1,000
every six months.
"But when he went to Brighton,"
stated Mr. Kuttan, "he seems to have
lost his head. He always wanted to be
making more money and was restless.
I had helped him finance his factories
and gave him assistance almost whenever he needed it. This Ib what I have
to show for It."
The sensation over Horsley had recalled the past to Mr. Ruttan. He put
liis hand into the inner pocket of his
coat and pulled ' out two documents.
They were chattel mortgages given him
by Horsley, amounting in ail to about
$800. Today Mr. Ruttan Is willing to
make an assignment of the documents
at a very low rate.
There are people who say that Horsley was shaping up like a very prosperous man of business, when suddenly the
cheese factory at Brighton was burned
down. It had only been running a few
months. The directors had never been
called to a meeting. Shortly before, this,
Mr. Ruttan, who held a mortgage, got a
good figure for the Hilton factory and
only lost about $100 on that transaction.
But he says several others were hit
harder, and It all came from helping a
promising chap who waa worthless.
It is learned that Horsley did not leave
Brighton Immediately after the fire In
October of 1896, but tbat he remained
in hiding In one of. the hotels, that be
sent for his wife, whom people say he
always treated well, and gave her money
to buy furs for herself and clothes for
the little girl, and that he told her,
though he was going away, he would be
back in a few days. He never returned,
and alio was compelled to earn her own
living. This she did by cheesemaklng,
and remained In this neighborhood up
to a few months ago. .
Mrs. Horsley, it is said, is now either
in Idaho or very close at hand. Joseph
Horsley, brother of Albert, was overheard, yesterday, to say that her husband had sent for her, and had supplied
the money through another party to
take her to the West. Mr. Mark Ruttan,
of Murray, states that he knows for a
fact that Mrs. Horsley bought a ticket
at Trenton for Denver, Colorado, but
nothing definite has been beard of her
since her departure. She was formerly
Miss Florence Fraser, of Campbellford,
and a Bister married Joseph Horsley.
They are now residing in Wooler.
It is reported in the village that Joseph Horsley has stated that he knew
who Orchard was over one year ago, but
kept his brother's alias a secret. Joseph
is employed by a horse breeder named
R. O. Morrow, four miles north of
Brighton. He was tn the village yesterday, but refused to discuss any matter
pertaining vto his brother. From the
comparison that an early photo of Albert affords there Ib a marked likeness
in the two brothers. Joseph is about
live feet eight inches tali, stocky in
build, with shrewd, deep-set eyes, a fulness about the jaws, and a set of the
lip which has a certain degree of firmness. At first glance he appears to be
a man able to hold up his end in the
things with which he is conversant. He
Is about .15 years of age.
"I hope you will not think me impolite," said he, "but I am saying nothing about my brother. There Ib enough
being Bald about here already, I guess."
Albert Horsley was taught how to
make cheese by the young woman who
later became his wife. Prior to that he
worked for Mr. William Valentine, of
Brighton township, who lives near the
old Montgomery factory, where Cupid
became very busy while Ihe twain converted the milk, delivered by farmers,
Into the marketable commodity. The
factory is still standing, a dilapidated
looking old building where Inactivity
has become venerable. The landmark,
for such It is, now becomes an object
of Interest, and as long as It stands people will recall the match-making or
something else of the career of Albert
"I know Albert Horsley," said Mr.
William Vnllentlne, who Is a member of
tho Friends' church, to which Albert's
parents belonged: "and I thought him a
likely lad. Of course he was mischievous, but if you wanted a thing done
quickly he was tho one for the job,,
snd If you wanted a little scheming
done he could turn you out a first-class
Job. I never knew anything against the
lad while he was hero. He neither
smoked or drank, nor swore, and I think
he went to church once In a while. In
fact, I don't think he wns much worse
than most boys, but he was tricky He
spent one winter In the Michigan hint
bor woods.
"I remember the time Albert waa mar.
ried," continued Mr. Valentino. "I let
him hare a horse and rig for the occasion. The event took place 19 yenrs
ago thla fall, and I must Bay he got n
fine, clever little woman.   They always
seemed to get along well together."
After Horsley left Montgomery factory he went to Edvile, and thence to
Wooler. It is reported that while at the
latter factory he made on one occasion
a poor batch of cheese. Instead of repotting to the board of directors, as
the president suggested, he prevailed
upon the latter to stand good for the
amount In shortage in price to tbe patrons, promising to make reimbursement
when possible. That stage, it is said,
was never reached. Horsley had the
reputation of being a good cheesemaker
whenever he was Inclined to devote himself to the work.
He went into business for himself
on leaving Wooler, and with the financial assistance of Mr. Gilbert Ruttan,
secured possession ot the Hilton factory.and another near Brighton, working them both for the same season. He
generally had several strings to his bow,
however. On one occasion he raised an
Immense crop of potatoes. It was a
cheap season, and what he sold brought
16 cents a bag.- The greater quantity
rotted. Horsley was fond of horses and
had a number of fine-looking outfits In
his youthful days.
While he remained in Wooler, however, he Is said to have overreached
himself. The climax came In Brighton
with the burning of the factory. The
very night prior to the blaze he was re-
ported to have gone to Belleville with
a load of potatoes. These, it turns out
from his confession, waa tbe cheese
from the factory. The Phoenix Insurance company held the policies, and
something was said about an investigation, but this was dropped with a trans
fer of agents and Horsley'a sudden disappearance. Alonso Simpson, now of
Campbellford, who is said to have
helped Horsley In a. financial way, then
lived In Brighton, and the two were very
intimate. Suspicion pointed to Horsley
from the very first as having been responsible for the fire and the disappear-
ance of the cheese.
A house now occupies the site ot the
factory, while the Hilton factory has
also been removed to a point farther
north, und is now operated by Horace
Way, whose wife is a relative of
Those who recall the circumstances
say that Hrosley and "the other woman" did not leave Brighton together,
but that she followed him to Nelson,
thence to Spokane, where, penniless,
she repented and was assisted by relatives to return. She was again received
by her husband, and there has been no
subsequent severance.
There are young people In Wooler
who remember when they received the
seeds of religion as attendants ot Albert Horsley's Sunday school class, and
they say both he and his wife were very
good teachers. That waa before he
gave up trying to conform to the requirements of the Methodist church. He
declared tbat it was no use, and he surrendered to his own opinions. It Ib
staled that he was an accomplished surrenderor to his own opinions. It Is
stated that he developed Into a sharper.
"I earnestly believe," said Mrs. Albert
Wessel, "that the young man tried to
be good. We know nothing bad of him
while he was In Wooler, and helped in
the church work. But strong Influences
seemed to be at work."
Mr. Anthony Terrlll, of Brighton
township, knew Horsley'a parents, they
having lived on a section ot his farm.
They were of English descent.
"It waa a case of like rather like
son," said Mr. Terrill, "but. though Mr.
Horsley was a schemer, I never knew
anything really bad of him. He never
seemed able to get along, however. His
wife was a very fine woman, and the
daughters resemble her very much."
One farmer for whom Albert worked
stated that he sometimes gave vent to
outbursts of anger, and that the animals
In his charge then suffered. One one occasion he had seen him hitch a team
to an immovable stump and whip them
Another sidelight on Albert's character Ib obtained by an Incident related by
a Brighton merchant. Horsley owed him
$10, and continually put him oft whon
pressed for payment. Finally the merchant threatened to sue. Albert declared
ho was penniless. The merchant wns
firm, and at last the young man produced a large roll of bills, and reluctantly handed out the $10, Baying:
"There you arc sir,; Hint's the last cent
you can get from mo." It was tho last
cent, for n few days nflerwards the fire
occurred, and Horsley disappeared.
Not Wholly to Blame.
Brighton. June 16.���Horsley's statement that he Bent money to his wife Is
considered here as being almost equivalent to an announcement that she has
either gone to Idaho .taking her little
daughter with her, or thnt she la not
very fur away from the scone of tho
present trial. To her friends here, it
is said, she bus always maintained that i
her husband wns innocent of the burn- I
lng of the cheese factory, and that,
when the whole truth of the alleged
elopement came out. It would be seen
that he was not wholly to blame. What
Is regarded as one of the saddest features of Horsley's confession Is the revelation, to his trusting wife, of his actual
self. It is stated that when the young
man's mother died, a few months after
his disappearance, it was of a broken

Sir Fred. Treves Saya Use of Drug* I*
Out of Date.
London, June 16.���Sir Frederick
Treves, the King's favorite physician,
frequently startles the public by his
frank utterances of bright paradoxes.
It wns he who called a crowd of
"nurses," who flocked to South Africa
out of love of sensation and advertisement, "the plague of women." Speaking on Friday at the opening of an Isolation hospital, he observed 'that the time
was not far distant when the bottles on
the doctors' shelves would be reduced
to a very small number. Resort would
be had to simple living, simple diet,
and plenty of sun and fresh air. He
looked forward to the time when people would leave off the extraordinary
habit of taking medicine when they
wore sick.
Referring to the discoveries In bacteriological science and the great results achieved in the reduction of the
mortality irom Infectuous diseases, Sir
Fdederlck said that he looked forward
to the time when It would be as anomalous for persons to die of scarlet fever,
typhoid, cholera and dlptherla, as It
would be for a man to die of a wolf's
bite In England.

Not long ago there was a quarrel between Premier Parent and other Quebec
Liberals which culminated in a revolt
and the deposition of the premier,
whom Sir Wilfrid provided with an
18,000 federal office. Now a member
of the Gouln government has been accused of maladministration. The accuser Is a Liberal and the minister
prosecuted him for libel. In the course

crown land deal. Finally the jury disagreed and the action for libel fell
through. Now the question la whether
th* witness who swore to the $150,000
proposition should be prosecuted for
perjury. It la a situation which call*
for Sir Wilfrid's presence, and perhaps
for th* appointment of another discredited politician to a federal oflee.
The proposition of Sir Wilfrid Laurier
that a new Atlantic service, and > faster
service on the Pacific, as suggested by
certain promoters, be accepted as a substitute for preferential trade throughout
the Empire Is not likely to meet with
public approval. If we go into the subsidy buelnesB we must do so without any
hope of killing the Chamberlain policy.
The steamship proposal. It ia interesting to bear in mind, Is a revival of the
project advanced by Sir Charles Topper IE years ago, when the steamship
situation on the Atlantic waa not nearly
so favorable to Canada as it now is.
Sir Charles' proposition looked to the
establishment of a fast Atlantic service
for which we were to pay $500,090 a
year a* a subsidy.
That service waa to run in connection
with the Australian and Chinese lines
on the Pacific, and was thu* to be an
all-British route across the world. At
the colonial conference held at Ottawa
In 1894 the subject was debated at very
considerable length, and Mr. Foster gave
It splendid assistance. As a result of
that discussion Australia became Interested, and Canada Increased her offer
for a faat service on the Atlantic to
$760,000 per annum, the Imperial government agreeing to add $375,000 a year
to the contribution. Thla project was
bitterly opposed by Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
That gentleman said of It: "It haa been
argued that we should establish a line
ot steamers between England and her
possessions by virtue of which trade
would be cultivated between Canada
and the Brttiah Empire to the exclusion
of the rest of the world. I have only
this to say regarding such an Idea, 'It
1* absolutely absurd.' I prefer th*
Yankee dollar to the British shilling, especially when the dollar Is so near, and
the shilling so far away." Notwithstanding the opposition of Sir Wilfrid
the matter was pushed, and when Sir
Charles Tupper resigned In 1896 a contract had been prepared under which
the fast service and a greatly Increased
cargo service were to have been secured. Tbe Laurier government dropped
the acheme on taking office In conformity with the objection to It. which Sir
Wilfrid had expressed. But the ministry had not been long in control when
It coacluded to revive the enterprise. It
made several attempts of this kind and
failed In them all. Meanwhile, circumstances have changed. We have not
the fast service that has been looked
for, but our Atlantic lines are swifter
and better than they were 10 years ago,
and we have a service to Australia, and
to China and Japan.
If there were a really good solid project, under substantial.auspices, In view,
with relatively little, or at all events,
not too much expense attached to It, the
affair might be looked Into. But It would
be.quite contrary to our Intereata to
have auch a scheme put through, with ���
view, aa Sir Wilfrid Laurier suggests,
of making It "a substitute for the pref-
enentlal trade." The Idea of paying
money to get steamships lines to kill
preferential trade, when, If we adopt
preferential trade, we will get such line*
for nothing. Is not wise.

lat the people of Canada are corn-
to a .realisation of tru* national evils
is evident in every important feathering,
especially  of  "those  who  profess  and
call themselves Christians."   A Presbyterian layman led the way at the general synod in Montreal.    At the synod
of the Anglican diocese of Toronto, N.
Kerrar Davidson, a member of the Toronto  bar,   who   was   for  many   years
president of the Canadian branch of the
Brotherhood of St. Andrew, has spoken
even more strongly. He urges that it Is
the duty of the clergy not to be content
with generalizing upon Christian virtues
but Ut scourge the prevailing vices, and
to point the mural to their own people
Tho same motive  undoubtedly   was  at
work when it was resolved by a Meho-
dlst    conference In  .Montreal  to main
tain a Christian lubby at Ottawa to op
pose the machination  of "grafters" In
the Mouse of Commons.
It is doubtful if any direct influence
can be exercised with advantage by any
religious    organization.     Anglo-Saxons
generally,   however   illogfcally,   rSMOi
and resist any attempt by clergy of an>
denomination  to Influence th" conduct
of political affaire,    Clergymen who express political opinions are often bluntly advised to "attend to their own af
fairs."   Why the corruption of national
morals, as seen In politics, Is not considered lo Jjp the affair of the clergy. Is
not apparent.    But It Is probably *?0l.
that In each of the three cases referred
to, the protests have come from laymen.
There was a time, and not very long
ago, when no Canadian publicist would
have dared to openly champion dishonesty and  vice.    When    charges    were
ovule  In 1891   of maladministration In
the   Dominion   department   of   public
WorkB,   the  late   Sir   John   Thompson. ���
then  government  leader In  the Com- J
roon6, appointed a commission to investigate and gave every facility for the
fullest inquiry. Several contractors
found guilty of defrauding the public
were sent lo prison, and the minister
in cuarge of the department, Sir Hector Langevin, though exonerated by the
com mission from any charge of personal complicity, retired from public
Very different is the code of honor
now observed in political circles. Commissions and parliamentary committees
are rendered as nearly useless as possible by an organized system of suppression of truth. No excuse is offered or
considered necessary. When, in spite
of tbe efforts of a well drilled majority,
some fraud is exposed, no suggestion of
punishment or even of reparation is
<*ver made. Mr. Fielding, who replied
fur ihe government to the last attack,
had only the shameless answer that the
Conservatives were no better than the
If that Is ihe only defence that can
be offered on behalf uf a government
with nearly a two-thirds majority in the
House of Commons, it is no wonder that
thoughtful men outside of parliament
see grave cause for alarm, all the more
because ft is obvious that the shielding of political criminals Is only made
pofftth.e by th*' complicity of the whole
L.beral representation In the elective
house, and tifat such policy has once
at least been consciously and deliberate ly endorsed by & majority of the oon-
The good name of Canada Is fri peril.
If the offer of continued material pros-
;etfty, stimulated by a new (ranscon-
riii'-iital railway, is enough to induce a
majority of the people to close their
eyes to open and notorious dishonesty,
'hen. Indeed, Is Is time for the few who
care for the honor of their country to
rais; their .olees in protest.

Successful Operation on Dying Man by
. German Surgeon.
Berlin, June 15.���Striking success was
attained by a cure of spinal meningitis
in Berlin with the aid of the new serum
discovered by Professor Wasser, successor to Professor Koch as the chief
of the celebrated Prussian Institute for
Infectous diseases.
The cure was effected under the direction ot Dr. Herman Schmidt, chief of
the First Army hospital in Berlin, in
the case of a soldier lying at death's
door. The worst features of the ailment
disappeared after three injections of the
serum given within one week.
The serum is obtained from horses
after the animals have been Innoculated
with large quantities of "menlngo cocci," or the germs responsible for spinal
meningitis. The curative action takes
place following the contact between the
"menlngo cocci" and the no-called "leu-
cothydes," or white corpuscles of the
