Schmitz, convicted of extortion in the French restaurant cate. Abe Rues alao benefits by the rul ing of the upper court, for, accord ing to Its doclaion, he pleaded guilty to an act that was no offense against the laws of the state. to the appellate judge, the compelling of French restaurants to pay “fees" to Abe Rues was not a crime, even though Rues divided the "fees" with the mayor. After discussing the point, the court reversed the judgment against Schmitz on the ground that no acts constituting a crime had been proved against him, Abe Rues, who pleaded guilty to extorting money from the French restaurants, is therefore equal ly guiltless. The decision wipes out the French restaurant cases and pending charges of extortion against Schmitz and Rues must be dismissed. Both are now entitled to release on ! bail. If they obtain the necessary bondsmen, they can remaiu at liberty 1 until such time as a jury finds them guilty on one of the indictments charging them with receiving bribes from corporations. Owing to the num ber of cases against them, the ball, figured at SIO,OOO a case, would reach an enormous figure. Schmtt and Rues cannot take ad vantage of the decisiou for 6o days.

Jan. 10.—The del- Qgatea cut loose And excitement h ed the bulling point lu the con-con, yes terday. when the lie wan puascd and specific chargee of bribery were made on the floor. During the scrimmage, the main body of the conventlou flocked out Into the cloak rooms to continue the fight where personalities could be Indulged In. without fear of reprimand from the presiding officer. Meanwhile, such del egates as were trying to make them selves heard on the floor of the con vention. gave It up for the time being. The rupture came about In the fol lowing manner: Delegate Thomas, on the previous day. had asserted that the oppoaltion to the Initiative tame from the outside through the efforts of agents of the liquor Interests. It was alleged that these agents had been taking delegates In detail to the Hotel Downey and there laying schemes to defeat the Initiative propo sition. Later, when Delegate Knowles had the floor, he made the emphatic state ment that those charges were untrue. Thomas then went to Knowles and said that he himself was present at the hotel and knew the facts. He request ed Knowles to withdraw the statement I that Thomas had lied, which Knowles promptly refused to do. Climax In Moore’s Spssch. The climax then came yesterday. In the Intense speech of A. L Moore, up holding direct legislation. When near the close of his remarks. Mr. Moore made the specific charge that Rep. Bunting was there as an agent of the liquor-bonding trust comply. .He add ed that, in a conversation with several other delegates, he had beard Bunt ing ask Knowles If he would not art as attorney for the company, leaving the Inference that his opposition was based on the hope of a “fat job." Aska Lobby lata' Ejection. Then, with burning, earnest lang uage, Moore said that auch men, meaning these alleged paid lobbyists, should be ejected from the floor by the sergeant-at arms and out of the capitot truttdtng. After this speech, Knowles, white with suppressed rage, arose to a ques tion of personal privilege, and aald: "Perhaps no accusation was per sonally Intended against me, but It looks that way.” Then he asked Moore for an explan ation, who. In turn, asked Knowles If he denied having the conversation referred to. Knowles responded that there was such a talk, but denied the Import of It. "Well,” said Moore. "Delegates Lil lie, Thomas and others heard that conversation." He added that he be lieved he had stated it fairly and ap pealed to them for confirmation, which was give*. At this Knowles left the room, fol lowed by most of the delegates, and for some time it looked as if the fists might be used settle the matter. Trembling with . rage, Knowles charged A. L. Moore with unfairly put ting him on record, but Moore was cool and collected, saying he had only stated the facts and all his remarks were aimed only at the outside lobby influence, and if Knowles could show a single word of untruth he would apologize and correct on the floor. Ala though the matter died out without personal encounter, Knowles made dire threats of future exposure, which ended the fracas for the present. M«orr« Sirtfh m "Hummer." The speech of A. L. Moore, who Is ft Pontlno lawyer, wfte one of the beet yet delivered. He declared that be co-mhlcred the question of the Initia tive the most Important since the Mrtb of the etftte, and that the red flag of anarchy Ixad been trailed down the aisles, prompted by corporate Inter* ests and unfurled. He further said that there had been evident on the part of these Interests untruth, In sincerity, deception and fraud and that he could see no excuse for such on slaughts upon the Initiative. Continuing, Delegate Moore said that he held the constitution as found ed on the love of liberty inherent In the hearts of the people. On the ques tion of constitutionality, Mr. Moore went buck to the records that gave it birth, and reading from those records drew out the real Intent of section 4. article 4. of the federal constitution, proving that this amendment, or any other proposed. . was not a judicial question, but political and belonging exclusively to the body politic. Under the language of Madison, he added. It came distinctly under state rights. He said he wondered that H. M. Campbell had overlooked these Important mat ters In his argument of the other day. Then he reiterated the point made by Snow, that these questions were only for congress to determine. He chal lenged Campbell to disprove It. He declared that he abhorred the separa tions cast the president of the nation bv sealous opponents. Then he read a letter addressed to him from Atty.-Gen. Bonaparte, on the Okla homa constitution, which said that In strument had been carefully gone over before It was signed and held consti tutional. with the Initiative Included. Moore closed with the words: "He who Ignores his pledge to vote for this, should throw away hts >0 pieces of silver and go out and hang nljnself." The speech Was loudly cheered.
