MORE EVIDENCE PRODUCED BY
RUEF'S SAFETY DEPOSIT VAULT
FIGURES IN CASE
General Counsel of United Railroads
Said to Have Drawn Large
Sum to Pay Former
By Associated Press.
SAN FRANCISCO, April 24.—
prosecution today called two new wit
nesses to the stand In the case of Tirey
L. Ford, general counsel for the United
Railways, on trial for the third time
before Superior Judge I.awlor on the
charge of bribing supervisors during
the Schmita regime. ,-„-„,, v
One of the witnesses was Frank. I.
Morris, a bookkeeper In the Weston
National bank safe deposit vaults. He
testified that Abraham Ruef, on May
25, 1906, rented a third safe deposit box,
coincident with the drawing by Ford of
$50,000 in small Mils at the mint 011
that date, which it la alleged by the
prosecution was the money given to
Ruef as the first payment to the super
visors for the passage of the trolley or
dinance on May 21.
The other ne ,7 witness was State Sen
ator George B. Keane, formerly asso
ciated with Ruef in the practice of
law and clerk of the Doodling board of
supervisors. 1 .cane's memory was
lather vague on some points and por
tions of his testimony were indefinite.
Very little of Importance was elicited
from him. PBfS ,_;
Other witnesses who repeated their
testimony given at the two former
trials of Ford were Charles Haggerty,
Ruef's office boy; W. K. Cole, cashier
at the mint; E. D. Hawkins, book
keeper at the mint, and Nathan Selig,
Hawkins* assistant. Another witness
was William M. Abbott, assistant gen
eral counsel for the United Railways.
Abbott on Stand
r'A. A. Moore, ST., chief counsel for
Ford, brought out that witness (Ab
bott) was jointly Indicted with the de
fendant, and upon this showing ob
jected to Abbott testifying and advised
him not to answer the questions asked
by Assistant District Attorney O Gara.
"When you pleaded to these indict
ments," asked Judge I.awlor, "did you
demand a severance from your co
■ "I did," replied Abbott.
"Objection overruled," said the court.
' Being directed not to answer, Abbott
said: "On advice of counsel 1 refuse
Asked if it would incriminate himself,
Abbott declared: "My testimony would
nofiincriminate me or anybody else.
Upon motion of O'Gara this answer
was stricken from the record.
A«bott then proceeded to testify un- j
der protest and told of accompanying
Ford to the mint upon two occasions
to draw n onev, but stated that he did
not know what his chief did with it ,
or what it was intended for.
Abbott admitted that he made the
firs! rough draft of the trolley oral- !
nance, which, with some changes, was
subsequently passed by the supervisors.
Court adjourned to Monday.
Ruef Juror Former Convict
Morris Haas, a liquor dealer, one of.
the accepted jurors in the trial of Abra
ham Ruef, was denounced by Assist- !
ant District Attorney Heney as a for- ■
mer convict, and ho was dismissed to- ,
day by Judge Doollng.
The incident caused quite a sensa
tion In court just before noon adjourn
ment. Heney rose and dramatically
forced Haas to admit that he had
served two years in San Quentin for
embezzlement. Haas was/ sent up from (
this city in IMS and he was pardoned
two' years later by Governor Water
man. Frank J. Murphy of counsel for
Ruef brought out that Haas' accuser
afterward committed suicide. Haas
was deeply affected by the laying bare
of his record In open court.
Following the Haas disclosure Juror
Edwin Mohrig asked permission to ad
dress the court. .He stated that he
wished it understood that Detective
Tom Gibson, in the employment of
Patrick Calhoun, under indictment for
alleged bribery of supervisors in the
overhead trolley franchise' matter,
could not "fix" him. He went on to
state that rumor had come to him
that it had been said he was one of
two jurors sworn to try Ruef who had
been fixed. On being assured by the
court that the statement had never
been mad-, Mohrig became composed.
Mohrig charged the statement to As
sistant District Attorney Heney, but
the latter told Mohrig that all inves
tigations on the part of the prosecu
tion had found him to be an honor
No new jurors were sworn today and,
on account of the elimination of Haas,
the case is further away from trial
than it was yesterday, leaving three
vacancies to be. filled.

manner as to draw gasps of amaze
ment from all who saw it.
1). M. Linnard ami Manager Stanley
of the hotel had done their utmost to
make the function a success in every
way, and according to those .who were
present they succeeded even beyond
their greatest expectations.
The great ball room of the hotel had
been decorated for the affair In such
a manner as a ball roc- i has seldom
been decorated before. Masses of beau
tiful flowers arranged In different parts
of the room contrasted strongly with
the red. white and blue of the flags
which floated from wall* to wall.
Th,' room was filled to its capacity

sounded until the ball ended nt mid
night . the floor was thronged with
happy dancers who glided to and fro
in waltz or tWOStep.

four great men-of-war lying as if
ablaze off the shore brought forth

ETHICS OF CHASE IN

German Reports Methods of Preserv.
ing Game Are Important Parts of
Curriculum in Every School

In submitting the following statistics
concerning the community and national
service. Consul George Nicolas Iftt of
Annaberg report* that the laws and
ethics of the chase, as well as the best
methods of preserving game are im
portant part of the curriculum of every
forestry school and academy in the em
Recent statistics gathered and com
piled from the several German states
and other official sources give an inter
esting view of the chase as a national
asset. There arc issued every year In
Germany 360,000 annual hunting per
mits; 180,000 permits for shorter periods,
and 60,000 free permits to gamekeepers,
foresters, etc. This means that 600,000
men—one In every 100 of the population
—go hunting occasionally. While the
price of hunting' permits In the different
German states varies from $1.50 to $6.25,
the average is about $3.7.".. The German
devotees of the- chase thus pay In round
figures $1,600,000 annually Into the state

55,000,000 pounds, of which 44,000,000
pounds are game, with a market value
of $6,500,000. Most of this Is venison,
wild bear, rabbit, grouse, quail, etc.
These are large figures, but considered
in connection with the fact that the an
nual consumption of meat by the Gor
man people Is 7,700,000,000 pounds, the
product of the chase becomes an insig
nificant factor in the meat supply of the
Tha money paid for hunting Permits
and the cash value of the game killed
are, however, not the largest item when
the chase is viewed from the economic
standpoint. The sum annually Pal<1 0"
--game preserve leases Is still larger. The
entire area of the empire is more or
less a game preserve, for the privilege
of shooting over some part of wnicn
some one is paying an annual rental-it
may be In state, city or community for
est preserve, where sometimes larger
game Is found, or only over the farms
which surround every village and offer
nothing better than rabbits and quail.
The average price for yearly leases of
game preserves is about 8 cents per
acre and the 135,000,000 acres of German
area thus . bring In from this source
more titan ' $10,000,000 per year. The
greater part of this sum Is paid directly
Into the community treasuries, and is
thence,: directly or Indirectly, dlstrlb-
uted for the benefit of the people inter
Any estimate of the, economic value
of the chase would be Incomplete
which, In addition to the Item of direct
income mentioned, did not take * Into
account the value of the incidental In
terests, such as the manufacture; of
arms and ammunition and other hunt
ing paraphernalia, game bags, hunting
outfits, etc., for it is the fashion hero to
hunt in uniform—l. c., hunting jacket,
jaeger hat, leggings, game' bag ' and ■
belt. Considering these Incidentals, lt
Is estimated that the chase means an
nually the distribution of about $32,600,
--000, more or less, directly among all tho
people of Germany.
