SAN FBANCISCO, Cal., May 17.
Interest ia divided between the appear
nnco bofore tho grand jury of Kucf and
tho many reports of an imminent
change in tho municipal administration.
An earnest effort ia being made to find
n .solution of tho unusual situation, but
no plnn Ihib yot been evolved that is
satisfactory to all political interests. A
committee of soveu prominent business
men called upon Prosecuting Attornoy
Lnngdon and others who are conducting
tho "graft" prosecution with tho view
of forcing tho board of supervisors to
resign in order that Schniitz may ap
point n new board, which in turn would
olect a successor to Schmitz. Tho plan
was not ncceptablo to tho prosecution,
who suggested that Schmitz resign and
allow the existing board of supervisors
to olect n successor. While not so stat
ed, it implied that tho choico of the
board would conform to the desiro of
the prosecution; that it was best that
tho reform forces work through the
prcsont board of supervisors, who owuld
leave the situation in tho hands of the
Mayor Donics Bumor
It was reported that Schmitz had vir
tually abdicated in favor of tho commit
teo of seven. ThiH. was strongly donicd
by tho mayor. Lnngdon was asked to
night: "Has the prosecution entered into
any arrangement, tentative or other
wise, for tho virtual retirement of the
mayor and the turning oyerof tho ac
tual reins of government to the com
mittee of seven representing the com
mercial organization! "r v
.,'f.The '.district attorney,"- replied
Langdon, "positively will havo no deal
ings witli any committee nppointcd by
Langdon was also asked: "Accept
ing as correct tho statement by a mem
ber of the prosecution that the mayor
has endeavored to make terms, would
tho district attorney's office accept a
confession from hlmf"
"Wo will accept tho confession of
any criminal,," he replied.
No Immunity Promised
"Would an agreement to accept carry
a proviso that no immunity strings
would be attached!"
"Absolutely," he answered.
W. II. Nelson, ono of tho mayor's at
tomcy'a today stated that Schmitz will
go to trial Monday on the extortion
chargca brought jointly against him and
"Schmitz," said Nelson, "will not
confess. Ho has nothing to confess.
Ho is not guilty."
Letters from hundreds of sources con
tinue to pour in upon Buef daily. Many
of them aro from women, some from
old friends, others from acquaintancea
with whom ho has not been in .touch for
years. Somo moro aro from people
whose names aro strango and whoso sig
natures he has somo difficulty, in read
ing. Almost without excoption they ex
press sympathy and encouragement.
Riis Had Eyo on Eucf
Dozens of theso missives and tele
grams aro from distant points. Ono
writer from an eastern city makes tho
statement that Jacob Riis, the celebrat
ed civic reformer and philanthropist, at
ono timo had an eyo on Rucf. Tho let
ter in part is aa follows:
"Just hero I want to recall an ear
nest conversation I had last winter with
that great, humble citizen, Riis, and
how ho said of you that you had pos
sibilities of becoming a leader on the
stdo ho represented in this country if
you were inndo to realize thero was
nothing of it on cither side; that in
this way you could not only accomplish
moro for yourself nnd in every way
gratify every lawful ambition, but it
would bo a lasting victory. Woil, you
have got your chanco now, ono that
docs not coino to many men. -I rcahzo
with you that most of tho real fight is
ahpad, but with your oyes on the now
liopo -which you expressed so well in
court tho othor morning, it will all como
,truo in timo if you work for it."
Lauded and Criticized
Astonishment- at Ruef's sudden and
totally unforeseen action in his change
to state's ovidenco has little dimin
ished. Many laud him as a courageous
man; others point to him as one who
has weakened under tho torrific strain
of remorsolesa prosecution and thrown
up hia hands. Among tho lawyers who
watched with keenest attention the pro
gress of tho case, ho is severely criti
cized for failing to take his counsel
into hia confidonco when ho finally
made up hia mind to surrender. Elisor

KUET AGAIN APPEAES
BEFORE GRAND JUEY
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., May 17.
Ruef today in his second appearance
boforo tho grand jury testified regard
ing tho Parksido Traction company
deal, by which, according to tho lino
of attack laid down by the prosecution,
tho directorate of tho Parksido corpora
tion paid Ruef $30,000 to secure a street
railway franchiso to enhnnco enormous
ly tho value of lots composing tho
tract. Information In possession of tho
prosecution is that of this' sum $1,000
was to bo paid each of the eighteen
supervisors for voting for the franchise
and tho remaining $12,000 to bo divided
evonly by Ruef and Schmitz.
Among tho directors and stockholders
of tho Parksido Traction company were
W. II. Crocker, ono of tho foremost cap
italists of San Francisco; Charles E.
Green, manager of the vast Crocker es
tate and an official of tho Crocker-Wool-worth
bank; G. II. Umbson, a wealthy
real estate man; Douglas Watson, the
samo; F. W. Tillman, wholesalo grocer;
Wellington Gregg, officer of tho Crock-er-Woolworth
bank, and Joseph Green,
capitalist, who is president of tho cor
poration. All these men were called
boforo tho grand jury today. Tho fact
that several of them wero in tho inquis
itorial chamber but a few minutes gave
rise to the report that they refused to
testify. This was not confirmed. A
dotail of tho chargo is that tho original
bribe agreed upon by each of tho eigh
teen supervisors was $750, but that
when tho Parksido corjioration, shortly
after tho great fire, decided that it
wanted a trolley instead of a cable
franchise, tho price was raised to $1,000
and that the raise was consented to.
Eucf Got All the Coin
It ia further charged that tho bribery
graft prosecution was getting under way
at about this time, and tho effort to
have tho franchiso granted was post
poned indefinitely and that Ruef re
tained tho $30,000 passed. Rucf was
asked tonight when he emerged from
the grand jury chamber:
"Have you made any arrangements
to return to tho men of tho corporations
against whom you will testify in court
the various urns of money paid by them
,to you for corruption purposes, or as
'foes' in tho bribery deals!"
"I will havo a statement to mako in
that regard a little later. When I stat
ed in Judgo Dunne's court Wednesday
that it was my purpose henceforth to
load a lifo of rectitude and to atone
insofar as I could for whatever wrong
1 had done in tho past, I meant what I
said. There waa not an opportunity
then, nor was thatHhorbest occasion, to
onter into dotails But I shall presently
prepare a statement1 covering your ques
tion." When Rucf entered the grand jury
chamber this evening U was 0:30
o'clock and he had been waiting since
shortly after 3 oclock. Several of the
grand jurors, following the example set
by all of them tho day bofore, rose and
grasped the fallen boss by the hand
nnd expressed a desire to help him "in
any way they .could."
Euof on the Stand
Ruef waa on tho stand one hour, dur
ing nearly all of which ho gave testi
mony regarding the Parksido deal,
which, according to tho prosecution pro
gram, falls under tho criminal caption
of "Attempt to bribo public officers."

bery of the mayor and supervisors by

Medical Testimony by Two
Doctors Takes Up Almost
Entire Day Yesterday,
STAND AT ADJOURNMENT
Is Principal Witness for the
Prosecution Other Crimin
al Cases Are Continued' Un
til Late Next Week,
The atmosphere in tho courtroom yes
terday during tho Carkeot murder trial
was thickly impregnated with Latin
terms, and words and phrases from the
medical dictionary were tossed back and
forth by attorneys nnd witnesses with
the utmost abandon, although occasion
ally one of tho counsel almost choked
oyer one moro difficult of pronunciation.
Although most of or all of it waa di
rected at tho jury, it is doubtful if the
majority could tell tho difference be
tween a corpus delicti nnd a medulla
oblongato after almost an entire day
was spent in taking what waa purported
to be expert testimony.
The prosecution sought to prove that
cither wound in tho head of Goorgo
Welch would havo caused instant un
consciousness and tho .defense by the
samo witnesses attempted to secure ex
pert testimony to support the suicide
theory that Welch could havo fired
both shots himself. Both witnesses, Dr.
Wales and Dr, Parker, "stuck to their
statements that Welch could not have
fired both shots, that cither wound
would have caused instant insensibility.
Dr. Wales took the stand agam when
court ..convened and tho direct and
cross examination occupied all morning.
Ilia redirect and subsequent cross .ex
amination occupied oyer an hour after
the noon recess, after which Dr. Parker
vas called. Hia examination by both
sides occupied most of tho afternoon.
Eapler on the. Stand
Clinton Rapier, tho principal witness
of the prosecution, followed Dr. Parker.
Ho testified as to leaving the tent in
which were Welch and Carkeet at
twenty minutea to one in the afternoon
of April 2; and to hearing about seven
shots, while he waa hanging screen
doors in tho dining room, fdrty yards
from tbe'tont. Ho, told of Carkeet com
ing to him and telling him that "Welch
was firing hia (Rapier's) gun and that
ho (Rapier) ought to take it away from
him. This was after the last shot had
been fired and Rapier went down to the
tent which he had occupied with Welch
and found tho latter dead.
Rapier waa stilt being cxnniined by
the prosecution when court adjourned
for the day.
Other Cases Postponed
As tho Carkeet case ia expected to
occupy several days more, other cases
on tho criminal calendar havo been con
tinued until May 31, except, that of tho
Baldwin lynching rioters, who will be
tried before Judce Campbell May 27.
The postponement in tho other cases wa8
made because of the fact that tho su
premo court mccta next Wednesday,
when Judge Nave will go to i'noenix,
Tho men who havo beon convicted but
not yet sentenced will be sentenced by
Judge Campbell on May 27. They are

lows whilo confined in tho Graham

much perturbed because Baldwin waa
in tho samo iail with him and begged
tho officers to keep Baldwin away from
him. He told the Globe lawyer during
Baldwin's trial that he dreamt ono
night that a mob of men with a rope
came to the Solomortville jail to lynch
Baldwin, The latter was not in the
jail and the lynchers mistook Davis for
tho other negro. Ho Bays that he never

steps leading to the scaffold and it waa
some time before ho got over the fright
caused by his dream. v

Government Fails to Issue
By Associated Press.
ST. PETERSBURG, May 17. The
failure of tho government to issue a
statement of facts of the plot against
the emperor which came to light at
Tsarekoo Solo two days ago, coupled
with ambiguous answers of certain high
officials, has served to increase tho con
fusion of the public and baa given rise
to persistent expression of the theory
that the government has to ileal with
a reactionary plot against tho emperor
which contemplated aproclamation of
a regency or dictatorship.
Constitutional Democratic leaders are
inclined to givo credence to tho theory
that the discovery of tho revolutionary
