PARIS, April 2. Extraordinary
public interest was manifested in
the debate in tho chamber of dep
uties today on thc report of tho
committee which has investigated the
alleged 'connection of sovcral former

mont of tho trial of Henri Rochetto,

modations for only 300.
Joseph Caillaux called on Henri
Boucard, the investigaiug magistrate,

GOULDS REFUSE TO
Plan of Rockefeller Interests
to Take Over Railroads
Meets With Failure.
NEW YORK, April 2. From sources
closoly identified with tho . principals,
it wus learned today that all negotia
tions fur tho acquisition of stock control
of Missouri Pacific and other Gould
railroad holdings by tho Rockcfellor in
terests have been abandoned, tempor
arily, at least.
The disruption of thoso plans, which
aro known to havo reached a dafinite
stago, seems to havo been caused by
tho refusal of tho Goulds to sell suffi
cient shares of Missouri Pacific. Denver
& Rio Grando and Wesloru Pacific to
give tho oil magnate a dominant in
terest in those lines.
The Rockofellers, it is understood, had
practically agreed to take caro of tho
$25,000,000 Missouri Pacific notos ma
turing tho middlo of tho year, but de
manded in return sufficient stock of
that road at a fixed price to give them
at leaHt 55 per cent interest.
A representative of tho Goulds is
authority for the statement that the
deal might havo been consummated but
for a leak in the negotiations by which
outsiders, presumably atook. speculators,
availed themselves of an opportunity
to tako tho market away from tho con
tracting parties to their own pocuuiary
advantage Tho 'recent activity and
strength of tho Gould stocks, particu
larly Missouri Pacific, lends color to
Wall Btroet also heard that ono reason
for tho failuro of tho negotiations was

of Missouri Pacific securities, to dis
