A DELIGHTFUL TRIP USE THIS TRAIN Southern Pacific Co* HANG ME IF YOU WANT TO SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 13.—For more than an hour Morris Haas, the would-be slayer of Heney, was interrogated by Captain Duke nn-1 \V. J. Burns. Hans made a rambling statement that he had determined to kill Mr. Heney and saving In the next that he hoped Mr. Heney would not die and th.'tt he had nothing against him, but doggedly maintaining all the time that neither Ruef nor his attorneys had anything to do with getting him on the jury In Ruef's previous trial or with his attempt to assassinate' tlio assistant district attorney. "My name is Morris Haas," said he. "Yes. i shot Heney. He ruined my life. Heney pronounced his own death sentence when he denounced me in court. I have had no business at all j since that time. It was an outrage of Heney to do that. I am the wronged man, not he. People ostracized me; they would not even look at me any more. Heney had no right to do that. My conviction and serving In the pen: itentlnry was public record. Why did ! he not look into that. "My God! I have a wife and four children. Do yon think I would have brought these children Into tlie world to have them branded ^hat way through Heney's exposure of me In that way? I don't care what becomes of me now. You can hang me or do anything you want with me." Haas asked Burns to take some cigars from one of his pockets, retain one himself and give him one, as he j could talk better then. He also asked repeatedly that the handcuffs be taken from his wrists, saying, "I won't hurt you." It developed from Haas' replies to RUEF SENT FOR DOCTOR (Continued From Page 1.) ihr newspaperman, McCahe or Koley.

Dismiss from your mind the Idea that you have ever seen a low-priced car which was In the same class aa this $1550 four cylinder 30 horsepower Cadillac. Where you have seen little cars at a low price, you will now soe a big car at a low price. Where you have Hitherto seen spidery outlines and bandbox proportions, you will now see size and strength and dignity. Where you have seen Indifferent material skimped and saved to rnalce possible a low price, you will now see a car built of the finest steels money can buy, used In full and generous measure—and the same palnstak- ang, conscientious system o( construction, down to the last nut and bolt, that has been typical ot the Cadillac plant from the first year of Its history.
