Presldeat Says Wall street Hopes
Every Lloa Will Do
ATLANTA. Ga.. Dec. 10. In a Washing

Constitution, President Roosevelt Is quoted
as asserting that Wall street hates him.
"When I go to Africa," said the president
In talking to a party of Georgians who
called upon him yesterday, "Wall street
expects every lion to do his duty. Wall
street hates me with fervid sincerity, not
because of any general denunciation of
railroads and corporations, but because I
have done things."
The Dresldent la quoted as saying that
he does not plead for a centralised govern
ment, but for a recognition of the power
already vested In the national government,
adding: "If congress will give m. and
when I say me, I mean the president, the
national administration the power t se
cure a thorough supervision of the finan
cial affairs of railroads, to regulate the
Issuance of stock, to prevent stock water
ing and to Insure publicity of all their af
fairs, with due regard to legitimate trade
secrets. It would settle the whole corpora
Urging the necessity of permitting rea
sonable combinations of capital, the presi
dent is quoted further as saying:
"If you should dam up the Mississippi
river you would cause a flood and accom
plish nothing thereby, but you can guide
and restrain this immense water force by
means of levees."

George M. Deubel of JT0 8amm!t avenue.
Jersey City, N. J., has written to the secre
tary of state for a Job on a ranch in Ne
braska. The writer says he is a young man
now employed by a railroad company which

Soaao Poor Laaere.
'The republican pvty has developed
some mighty poor losers since the last
election." remarked an officeholder, who
is giving up his Job without any kick.
"For about seven years John L, Pierce
has been the head of the Insurance depart
ment under State Auditors Weston and
Searle. His friends tried to get bis re
appointment under Auditor-elect Barton
"I notice now that Pierce is advocating
taking tha insurance department from
under the control of the state auditor and
placing it in the hands of a board. Thla
of course, means putting It where Governor-elect
8hallenberger will have an oppor
tunity to appoint either Pierce or a demo
crat to be deputy.
"Whether the Insurance department
should be under the state auditor or under
a democratic governor, makes no differ
ence to me. but It looks like Mr. Pierce
would be willing to step down and out
without trylmr to keep any other republi
can from holding the office. If Mr. Barton
had 'appointed Pierce to the office I
wonder would there have been any recom
mendation from that source that the office
be segregated. "

of the State Association of County Commis
sioners and Supervisors came to a close
here today by the re-election of officers
and the selection of Fremont as the place
for holding the next convention. Because
of the general satisfaction over their ad

Weldon of Wood River, Secretary Hill of

RUEF JURY OUT LONG TIME
Several Member Are Believed to Bo
Staadlas Oat for Aeqalttal
SAN FRANCISCO, tec. 10. Nineteen
hours had elapaed since the Jury in the
case of Abraham Ruef began its delibera
tions up to 11 o'clock today, when there
had been only the mldinght demand for
testimony and instructions to Indicate whst
is transpiring behind the closed and
guarded doors of the Jury room.
The length f time that the Jury ha re
quired for consideration ha rendered Ruef
and his attorney extremely hopeful of a
disagreement, and even the defendant at
times engaged in frank discussion of the
probable attitude of the Jurymen.
It has been surmised from the manner In
which several Inquiries of Jurymen were
last night propounded, that two or three
rf their number favor acquittal, but there
Is no other foundation for this belief, al
though it Is shared dike by friends of ths
prosecution and defense.
