However, ' ih������?  .scrcweye would ,be found in Mho'  gate 'and the bomb in the ground  us  ho bail never  removed them.   ���������  It was when this was ' read that  Judge Goddard had left the room  anil gone, to his home,' where, sure  enough he found the scrcwoye. Immediately after the reading" of the  remainder of the confession the entire paty went up ' to Judge Goddard's home, and after looking at  tho sreweye and measuring the distance according - to Orchard' diagram'" General Bulkeley Wells volunteered to find out whether tho  bomb was still there. The others  retired ��������� to a safe distance, the judge  and Mrs. Goddard watching from  lhe  window  of   tlie house.  Taking his penknife, Wells gently  scratched along" tho earth until he  found the fish hook attached to  tho wire. Then with infinite' eaiv  he removed the earth until he came  to the sacking, ' which Orchard, in  Idaho, fivo hundred,'' miles away, had  said would be-found over the explosive.  "t have, it," he called, and, the  others came, saw nnd went. Then  with utmost precautions, not to jar  the treacherous bomb and- in any  way get the cork out of Ihe bottle  oT acid the intrepid Wells took the  thing out. of the, earth and. guarded by. his frightened 'companions,  carried 'it to " the capital, where it  -   was  placed     in   big vaults. < -*-  Governor ' Jesse A McDonald  heard" the confession or tho vital  parts of it, reaid, heard corroborations and inn do-some for himself over the longdistance telephone  and telegraph, looked curiously, at  the bomb, cms til ted the attorney  general of the state, and other-  legal advisers and granted the r-*-  qujstions. -   * -*  It was pointed out to him hy  one of those present that no matter what the outcome his action  "~would kill him politically, and to  his credit, his only reply was to  ask.  "You believe that these men are  guilty, dp you not?"  "Yes," said the friend. .  "Well," said the governor, "it.  may be a political mistake-,'.but. its  right," and he turned and sign  ed the papers. ���������:*���������������������������   ��������� ���������������������������'.���������. ',������������������'���������.  Three days after the assassination  of. ..Sitcunenbcrg tho case was turned .over : to, McFarland. His suspicions from the lirst * were direct  ed towards Orchard; and within a  short trine* he had sufficient : evidence.   to  warrant  his arrest'.  After Orchard had been taken, a  careful search vvas made of bis effects. A suspicious powder on the  floor and a- few letters in the"  closet were all the detectives found  '.in . the room at the hotel .. to . reward their search, but in a trunk  at tho railroad station, on which  he was paying storage, was found  a cipher code, and letters from various Western Federation officials,  'containing advice and orders which  have since bean found to tally'exactly    wich Orchard's statements.  Tn this trunk, too, wcre materials for the making of bombs���������mat  eriuls that needed only to be skilfully combined to work disastrous  results.  Cowed   by Awful   Silence.  With  these evidences     in  their pos-  sessio'n   the   next step  was    to      obtain   a  confession       from   the     prisoner.

The fifth  day brought nothing new until late  in the evening, when thc -��������� warden  went into the cell and said gruffly: "Got everything you want."  "Yes," said Orchard, who .was  plainly worried, "everything, hangup.     But what  in   h is  the rriat-  .te'r  with the  still's  liy the door.   "  \ "They know   their   business,"     responded    the  waidcn shortly  as   he  turned    on  his heel nnd  left him.  Two more days passed. Orchard  was eating next to nothing and  getting desperate with nerves. The  silence and anxiety was . telling on  him badly. Then McPni-land wi-nt  in. To his surprise Orchard recognized him. and, evidently e,lail  of. any human' being to speak to,  greeted him with: "1 know you.  you're Old Man Mac. We've -got  your, picture,"'  "I know you, too." said Mol-ar  land. "Nice box you've got your  self into���������a boy with a good mot  her  as  you've got."  "What do you know about in-.  mother?" demanded Orchard start  led.  "Know all about you,, from your  home in Canada up to today. I  know the people who took you it.  and brought you up like Iheii* own  son;- I know that no boy in .voiu-  town   started     out      with bolter  chances in   life  than you    did.

And  then   he    went  away  and   left     the     doomed     man  to his  memories.  "After this it was merely a question of days. Gradually Orchard  broke down. The death watch, the  silent scrutiny of those sleepiest**,  men, the long, idle nights and  days depressing him, the growing  cerOainty that detectives knew a1.!  about eveiy thing and that tho fed-'  oration' crowd���������from what he know  of his former dealings with thorn  ���������would -let him shift for himself  if he .tried to enmesh them made  him desperate.

An extraordinary feature of this  self-confessed professional killer's ca>-  rear was his portioning out oi  punishment according to his own  idea  of  justice.  "I told the Federation folks oyer  and-.diver again that 1 would not  stand for, , no murdering of people  who didn't cowe the Federation anything,, and especially-of women anil  children," - was his comment when  Detective ;. MeParland questioned him  concerning;, certain things that did  not  come olT.  '.'I could have got Peabody time  and time again If I hadn't been  afraid of blowing up the Peabody  girls/' and when it came to the.  wrecking of that train the night  of the military ball, t said I would  not do it. And "l was the man  thai passed the word to tho coiiduc-  ductor, warning him   to   look   out:"  The   military   Bail   ho   speaks      of.  plant the explosive" and wait until  the car ran up flush with the plat,  form���������"then    we'd  get     the     whole  190C.  thing."  "1 could do it alright." said Orchard, "but iirst 1 had to fram-i  up a get-a-way and my alibi'.  Thorewas a man.named Neville who  had a saloon down there. He was  not doing \my well. 1 was pretty  friendly with him, and J said'  'Let's go to Cody, Wyoming, the  papers say things are going i.p  there.'  "���������What   would  I  do  with      this?'  said Neville, meaning the saloon.  "That's   easy."   said.    I.      'Insure  it,    and   burn il.  down.'  " 'it's  already  insured,'  said    Neville.     "Get more   insurance,"    said   I.  i We  did,  and  got. the    'money.   That  was  easy.  ���������'Then we got a team and a. waggon, slocked it up, and Neville and  his boj', about twelve, and I stari  ed away about three o'clock in the  afternoon. 1 had decided to pull  tho job off that nigfTt.

The train with its load  had not. yet reached the plat-form  nor had. the majority of the men  from  the  mine.  '"When. I got back to tho camp  Neville was asleep and I turned .in  The next morning we started out  early and travelled all day without meeting any one; Along about  night ��������� we (passed a cabin 'where'  a man stood in the door rending  a   newspaper.  "When did you leave the Creel-.?"  he asked. "Yesterday'.afternoon, a'  three o'clock,' 1 answered. 'Then j-ou  ���������don't, know the hews!' he said.ex  eiteuly- He read us the accouni  and Neville turned to me with a  queer look.

They went on to Denver, -where  they left their tutniii al, a stable near  thc stockyards, took a street car  to . Federation quarters, where Orchard had a talk -iwith -Ha)-wood,  got some .money and left, driving  with Neville to Cody, where, apparently, they did not find things  quite as thoy anticipated: Orchard  found it expedient to keep on the  move, and went into Montana for  a" snl'������ hiding place. After the In-  ber 11 I dependence   excitement   had   subsided  and   Cripple  over a'crowd of 2L8 persons from  the Creek, They were to return  about two o'clock in the morning.

Neville had  gone "broke"  in Wyoming, and. with  off the walk, and thej-they spent  days trying to "get" the Gover-.  nor. One time Orchard stood with  his hand on the wire, with Simp-  kins waiting-across the street to  give him the signal. Just as the  Governor stepped within thi*. radiusi  of tho infernal maihine a '-oal |  wagon bucked 'up ju������-t a few doors  away,      with its  wheels on the wire  Pcabod.v's Warning.  Orchard went down to tho li.--.ad-  quaiters and vvas told that j'ea-  body-- was probnbh- down at the  Shrine, Peabody being an enthi:.-- i  iastic thirty-third degree Mason,  with the distinction of having conferred more degrees of Ancient  Craft Mnsonrv than gn.v other man  in the world. Si- lhe. next attempt  was made, at the Shrine. Thej' got  an automobile nnd a couple of well  dressed men to stand around the  Tein|.lo. When the Governor came  down they 'won; to offer to take  him homo, nnd Orchard would see  that he  never got   there.  (Jove: nor . Peabody has corroborated this story, He- says that as  he was leaving' the capital one  afternoon a. man walked beside him!  for a slop or two and said sot.t..������  voice: 'Don't speak to me���������but  don't ride in any man's automobile  tonight, no matter, what happens,'  and passed along. The .Governor  thought,'the man vvas "a little loony"  ���������one of the numerous cranks that  invest public offices, bpt that night  as he .came down the elevator after  the Shrine meeting a couple of  well dressed chaps- stood bjr the  street door buttoning up their  automobile togs. "I would have  sworn that thej- had boon with _us  upstairs," said thc Governor, and,  of course, with the urbanity of a  public official, he goiiiallj- returned  their  hcai'tj-  greetings.  "Piide ��������� j'ou up, Governor������������������wo're  going your vvaj',," said one- of the  mtn     hospilablj-.

He  kept  it.     n a       dress  suit  case   in  hishotel,    and    he   was  going  out-   of the  room    with   it an  insurance man   working   for the same  companj'  c. ame.    "Where    is        the  clock'?''    ho  asked   looking about the  room.
