Ito again denied that the president is a progressive and directed criticism at Senator Galllnger of this state. Regarding arbitration, Colonel Roosevelt said: "In considering International peace, I wish to look back to the seven and a half years when I was president. I said always just what I intended to do about peace, and I did it. I said I would never consent to the United Itates not acting toward other nations with scrupulous 'justice. I lived up to it. "Understand, I would not have the nation submit to a wrongdoing. I was careful not to Bove p thing done by the United Stated which was not justi fied by ethics, but I was not willing to Jeopardize the national honor. Under my administration we made The NHagu court, which had beoomne moribund, a live instrument for pesae and promot ing international .Juptice. Every act that I could submit to arbitration I did. "I want to call your attention to the fact that I was th, only president that got the Nobel peace prise, and I would not have gotten it if I had wanted peace because I was afraid of war. "I will no more agree to arbitrate questions which should not be arbi trated between nttions than I would agree to arbitrate quetions that should not be arbitrated between Individuals."

While express ing the hope that he would geot anll ac quittal or at least a divided jury, Jewis novertheless indicated that he was proe pared for an unfavorable verdict. Sympathy Doesn't Ge. L'ederall Judge Amnldon, ll Ili in structitns, urged the jury to discount all appeals for sympathy and said they must convince themselves that Lewis made misrnpreellntations with intent to defraud Investors, knowing he was not telling tile truth about the stock. "It has been testified," said Judge Amidon, "that circular letters were sent out to Investors explaining that the notes they were getting were unsecured. This is persuusivo evidence, It seems to me. Lewis understood that the sub scribers at first believed they were get Ing secured notes for their money. If he wanted them to know what they were getting why didn't he unequivo cally and unmistakably tell them thlat they were getting unsecured notes so that the whole matter would be a plain, honest, open business transaction?" Judge Amlidon also referred to the evidence that the government had also fought Lewis' enterprises. He told the jurors they mnight either judge from, this that the gov.rnlra nt or Lewis had been wronged but, unless they be lieved thls fight had entered into the things whiech ht eli ulte Lewis to pake the repx.w.ntal the entire Ilsubject muqt bev a*4 DLMARfE#T A (AAi (A O .ALLPES.
