THE TRIAL OF WILLIAM, 9 Mar 2012 [cached]
In his confession, Harry Orchard states that a man names Steve Adams was with him and assisted him on many of his bombing missions, not the least of which was the bombing of the Independence, Colorado, railroad depot, where some fourteen non-union scabs were blown into eternity. According to Idaho law, the confession of an admitted murderer cannot be used to convict other members of the conspiracy--unless it can be corroborated by "independent evidence. Steve Adams, according to Harry Orchard, is an habitual drunk, a weakling, and an ignorant man.
Jack Simpkins and Steve Adams cannot be found.
Reluctantly, McParland agrees to go ahead with Simpkins and Adams still missing.
At about this same time, Steve Adams is located and arrested near Baker City, Oregon, and is taken to Boise.
A miner named Steve Adams, implicated by Orchard in the bombing of a Colorado train depot that killed thirteen non-union miners and the killing of two claim jumpers in northern Idaho, was arrested.
Threats of hanging and promises of immunity finally induced Adams to confess.
In a matter of days, Steve Adams makes a full confession, not only corroborating most of what Orchard has said but adding a few murders in northern Idaho to which Adams was a party with the missing Simpkins.
Bothe Harry Orchard and Steve Adams have signed detailed confessions.
For example, in his confession Steve Adams describes how he was taught to make "Pettibone Dope," a liquid that bursts into flame when exposed to air.
Adams says several years earlier Haywood sent him to Pocatello, Idaho, with several jars of the liquid, which he was instructed to throw into a railroad car filled with strikebreakers due to pass through. Unable to accomplish his mission, he carried the evil-smelling jars into a vacant building just outside of town and buried them in the dirt floor. Now he is willing to take McParland to Pocatello and show him where the jars are buried.
Accompanied by the Pinkerton detectives, prison guards and a reporter from the Idaho Statesman, Steve Adams goes to Pocatello and supervises the search for the jars of "Pettibone Dope".
Darrow sees at once the most damaging part of the case to the defense is Steve Adams' confession, which corroborates Orchard's in many details.
Darrow's first priority was to convince Adams to withdraw his confession and thus make the state's case against Haywood stand on the uncorroborated testimony of Harry Orchard.
Denied personal access to the closely held Adams, Darrow was able to contact an uncle, known as "old man Lillard," living near Baker City, Oregon.
McParland, coldly furious, believes there is a way to tighten the screws on Steve Adams.
When Adams is released from custody on a writ of habeas corpus , the sheriff of Shoshone County is waiting with a warrant for his arrest on a murder charge.
Central and northern Idaho are extremely mountainous; in those days, direct transportation by rail from Boise to Wallace was impossible. By rail, one could go east to Pocatello, north into Montana, then west to Wallace, Idaho; or one cold go west into Oregon to Pendleton, north into Washington, then east to Wallace. Either way, the prisoner, Steve Adams, will have to be taken out of the state of Idaho--and the prosecution fears that the moment his physical person leaves the jurisdiction of the state of Idaho, habeas corpus writs will fall like manna from heaven.
But Steve Adams is not on it.
The trial of Steve Adams held in Wallace, Idaho during February, 1907 for the murder of Fred Tyler was a dress rehearsal for the main show soon to take place in Boise.
A couple of men have disappeared and rumor has it that Steve Adams and Jack Simpkins have killed them.
Reluctant witnesses give indefinite testimony; the jury deadlocks six and six; Steve Adams goes back into the Wallace jail to await a new trial.
But Steve Adams is still in the toils of the law, with the shadow of the noose hanging over him.
But if you will affirm your original confession . . . Steve Adams remains sullenly silent.
If so, the defense's success in persuading Steve Adams, by bribe or threat or whatever, to withdraw his confession was the key to victory.
