William D. Haywood, Charles H. Moyer, and George A. Pettibone

Big Bill Haywood was much more radical than Charles Moyer who preferred negotiations with mine owners instead of violence. Pettibone also did not agree with Haywood. The animosity between them increased during the more than sixteen months they were confined waiting for Haywood's trial. By December 1906, Moyer and Pettibone were not on speaking terms with Haywood.
