his energy for the ordeal through
which he will have io pass today. His
appearance in court this morning is
being looked forward to, with trepidat

possible for him to ; bear, up much
longer against the stress attending
him since Ruel Mias unburdened him

inclined to take the view that the
mayor will, be unable to perform liis
duties if ordered into custody, and have
already given consideration to the" se
lection of James L. Gallagher'' as "act
ing mayor. . . . . V '
Jt is stated that Gallagher ' has no
taste for the job, but there are in
fluences at" work more potent than his
own inclinations. Placed in the" po
sition of acting mayor, Gallagher would
have all the power vested in the office 1 .
He could remove commissioners, ap
point new ones and otherwise change
the complexion of the administration.
The appointment^ of an elisor- is en
tirely dependent upon the trial judge.

Accused of Promiscuous Sale
\u25a0 of Poisons and "Dope"
Used by Fiends #
IjOS ANGELES, May 59.— Thirty or
more druggists of this city, including
the proprietors of some of th*> largest
stores hero, are facing criminal proses
.'cutlon as a result of .sensational evi
dence secured against them by officers
of the state board of pharmacy. It has
,»>een discovered that little attention Is
paid to the law governing the sale .of
poisons, and that any person could se
cure sufficient deadly drugs to kill a
'"regiment if such quantity were needed.
/ The investigation has been in prog
.ress for some time, several arrests have
heen made, but by far a greater num-
J>«r are to follow, and the lines are to
'be drawn so closely that it.'.vill be dif
ficult even for known "dope fiends" to
.Xet their usual potions without an orj
*3er from a physician.
*^< The repeated sales of morphine and
• other drugs to children caused, the; in
\u25a0 .vestigatlon, and it was then discovered
,*uat so great was the sale -of poisons
: that many druggists had packages of
various prices prepared in advance, the
Fame as grocers make packages .of
sugar, and that any person who had
: the money could make purchases. -
';'Triere were a few" -except I cms, '*ome
'trtjggists being found who refused to
«ell except in exact compliance with
; .-the law, but this number was in such
:* minority that the others included
about 90 per cent of the whole number
jof drug stores here. . ..
i The investigations have been per*
sonally conducted by. President E. T.
Off .of the state board arid Secretary

Rural Inventor ' Intercepts
Messages to and From
the Capital
.^WASHINGTON, May lg.-t-Government
officials are greatly disturbed by the
fact that official and personal mes
sages transmitted by wireless stations
along the Atlantic seaboard are being
intercepted by a Washington man, who
has- established a station In his 1 home.
By this private station he can receive
and transmit messages with the gov
ernment stations, and he claims to have
communicated with Point Lorria, CaL.
some weeks ago. Notwithstanding that
the. expert Is known to . the local au
thorities, they are powerless to act, be
cause there is no law to protect ,ot}'
ficlal* wireless stations during the ex
change of messages. , V;"
The owner of the station is a farmer.'
He has . perfected an apparatus ' that
compares: favorably ; with, any main
talnafl' by the government. "Not only
can he communicate with warships ai.
sea, but he can interpret; every official
message received or sent from the
tional' capital. Government messages
that probably wduldTdlsturb relations
between this and other, nations -were
they ; to .become known are to him, but
common communications. ••- . \u25a0'\u25a0.'
Captain E. H..,C T Leutze, . command
ant -'of the Washington' navy- yard; , who
has direct supervision'^ over, the, wire r
less station, /is -greatly; perturbed over
the situation. On one occasion, about
a week ago, ..when the operator' was
making 1 frantic* efforts to communicate
with Hampton" roads on a matter .'of
vital Importance,! he- was suddenly \u25a0 shut
off by the' operator of - a nearby sta^
tion. - .. Consternation^ reigned. : . Every
a* ailable apparatus In the 4 Btatlon wag
pressed Into service. It- belng,,belleved
at \u25a0 first that the failure to make ' con
nection with the distant . station: was
due to a defect in the apparatus.. When
the true situation dawned l upon the of
ficials, attempts 1 were 'made to cut oft
the* hostile intruder, but 'all efforts in
this direction proved futile.
For five 'hours; the operators, officials
and /others connected with the "c station

Missives Appear to Have
Given Him Strength
and Courage
Prisoner Says That a Great
Load Has Been Lifted
From His Mind
Between dictating scores of letters
and at the same time keeping his baby
niece amused. Abe Ruet spent a busy
afternoon .'yesterday in his prison rooia
at Mayor ! SchmiU' ol& -• Flllmore street
residence. The letters, which he dic
tated to his sister, were in ansjver to
the- 600 or more notes of sympathy, ad
vice and friendship which he has re
ceived since last Wednesday, when.ua
entered the plea of guilty, in Judge
Junnt's court.
These .letters continue; to,, pour in.
and sprinkled among .them tare numer
ous telegrams from all . parts of the
United States. Ruef has devoured them
eagerly. ; a.nd they seem to have been
as great a : factor in restoring him to -v
semblance of his old health and spirit*
as any other one thing. There was a
great, difference between Ruef yester
day and the . Ruef who sat in Judse
Dunne's court a week ago. and Ruef
himself candiuly attributes this change
to his confession. - *
"I "feel 100 per cent better." he said
yesterday. "In fact,. l feel like a new
man. . There's ' been a great load lifteil
from my mind and that makes all tha
difference in t-e world. Of course,
everything isn't as pleasant as it might
be yet. but then * *1 hope for the best."
Ruef was taken for a long walk
through the Presidio yesterday morning:
by.Eliaor Blggy. Later, Attorneys A-|i
and Falrall called upon him and dis
cussed the general situation for a con
siderable time,* the conversation turning
particularly to the Schmitz trial. • The
first threat" of hostility Jbetween Ruef
and Ach, which was noticeable On the
day the boss confessed, has blown over,
and the two continue to he friends,
though Ach has repeated the statement
that he , blames Ruef for not having
taken hU counsel into, bis confidence.
"; During the afternoon '\u25a0 and evening
Buef receiv«d members of • his family
and others who called upon him.
