sought a full expression of sentiment
from all of them.
Justice Moody. Secretary Straus and
Secretary Garfield frequently asked
questions. The general Impression pre
vailed among the labor leaders after
the dinner that the president's message
to congress would show some of the
flavor of the conference.
What seemed most significant of all.
both to the president and to other
government officials present was the
suggestion that congress should pass
Ja bill of rights into which all labor
legislation should be incorporated ana
should create a publicity board whose
purpose would be to investigate and
make public the details of controversies
between capital and labor.
The plea for a bill of rights was
made by P. H. Morrisey, grand master
of the railway trainmen, while the
publicity board 's idea was advanced
by T. J. Dolan, general secretary and
treasurer of the brotherhood of steam
shovelers and dredgemen.
The president's interest in these two
propositions was keenly awakened but
as to his attitude upon them he was

Against Ruef's Motion for a
Change of Venue
ONE BY THE TRIAL JUDGE
A Denial That the Event of
Last Friday Has so Affect
ed the Public Mind That
the Defendant Cannot Be
San Francisco. Nov. 17. When the
trial of Abraham Ruef was called to
day the prosecution filed affidavits
from thirty-seven persons including
Judge Lawlor. Chief of Police W. J.
Riggy. Assistant District Attorney
John O'Oara and Under Sheriff P. J.
Heggerty in reply to the affidavits
made yesterday by Ruef and his coun
sel in support of a motion for a change
of venue to some other town or city
In the state. The counter affidavits set
forth that no excitement or turbulence
prevailed in the city as a result of the
shooting of Special Prosecutor J. F.
Heney in the open court roomlast
Friday afternoon and they denied that
either Ruef or his counsel were threat
ened, that their lives were endangered
or that conditions existed preventing
the defendant having a fair and Im
A supplementary affidavit by Ruef
was nieu dv nis counsel over the
strong objections of the prosecution
in which were cited some newspaper
articles denunciatory of the defendant
and his counsel In which it was as
serted that "Ach has clogged the
wheels of justice for Ruef with a wag
on load of affidavits." The court over
ruled the objections of Hiram John
son to the admission of this affidavit.
Judge Lawlor then granted the de
fense until 3 o'clock to file a reply
to the affidavits.
Judge Lawlor ni his affidavit
averred that he had seen on indica
tions of excitement and turbulence or
threatened violence to the defendant
and he denied that orders had been
given to keep out other than disor
derly, armed and suspicious charac
ters, from the court room. The other
affidavits were in a similar strain.
Mr. Ach started to make a motion
to strike out certain portions of the
affidavits filed by the prosecution,
when Hiram Johnson interrupted him
and asked the court to deny the de
fense the right to make "such a mo
tion. Judge Lawlor stopped Ach with
the announcement that the motion
would not be entertained. Ach then
asked for time until tomorrow to file
a reply affidavit to that made by
Rev. Wm. Rader, denying the cor
rectness of the remarks attributed
to him by the newspapers.
Johnson arose and said: "We beg
and implore the court not to grant the
request for further time er to per
mit the defense to file further affi
davits." Judge Lawlor made an order per
mitting Ruef to visit the office of
his attorneys during a recess of the
court. Ruef was taken down in a
police patrol wagon accompanied by
three deputies but without his es
cort of mounted policemen.

would be promptly met and punished.
