for Roosevelt. As the returns coE to come in the victory for the Roosevelt adher

Of the 64 delegates elected in th.3L districts, fully 50 are pledged to vote for Roose

choose 12 delegates at large to the so; nal c iention, will be controlled by the anti-Taft
element, insuring at least 62 delegwtr for Roosevelt from this state.
The republican organization Iql tare stunned by the overwhelming defeat of the
Taft candidates and have nothing to say regarding the result. United States Senator
Penrose, the recognized leader of th6republican organization and the leading Taft
boomer in this state, left the city earl, n the afternoon and boarded his yacht at Atlantic

The Roosevelt campaign managers are claiming more than the 62 delegates the returns

E. G. LEWIS' FATE
JURY IS LOCKED UP FOR NIGHT,
BUT MAY REACH VERDICT
SOME TIME TODAY.
Lt. Ilois, April 13. Th'le ury in the
case orf K. (i. LewIs, after having failed
to return a Verdict in 24 hours, was
locked up tonight, on orders of United
States D)lstrict Judge Alidon. If "
verdict Is reaclhed tuonight Judge Awlii
lon ordered the jurors to seal It and he
will receive it tomorrow.
)ihputy Imarshils In chearge f tihe Jury
reported this afternoon that the Jurors
had given no Indication of having
reached at verdict. The Jury retired at
8 o'clock yAsterday.
Lewis reminhlned In tIIhe ,l urtrooin
waiting for a verdict. While express
ing the hope that he would geot anll ac
quittal or at least a divided jury, Jewis
novertheless indicated that he was proe
pared for an unfavorable verdict.
Sympathy Doesn't Ge.
L'ederall Judge Amnldon, ll Ili in
structitns, urged the jury to discount
all appeals for sympathy and said they
must convince themselves that Lewis
made misrnpreellntations with intent to
defraud Investors, knowing he was not
telling tile truth about the stock.
"It has been testified," said Judge
Amidon, "that circular letters were sent
out to Investors explaining that the
notes they were getting were unsecured.
This is persuusivo evidence, It seems to
me. Lewis understood that the sub
scribers at first believed they were get
Ing secured notes for their money. If
he wanted them to know what they
were getting why didn't he unequivo
cally and unmistakably tell them thlat
they were getting unsecured notes so
that the whole matter would be a plain,
honest, open business transaction?"
Judge Amlidon also referred to the
evidence that the government had also
fought Lewis' enterprises. He told the
jurors they mnight either judge from,
this that the gov.rnlra nt or Lewis had
been wronged but, unless they be
