"It ls very gratifying to me to say
that my heart ls full of faith In the

now. or ever, prevail.
"As to the relations between Mexico
and the United States and other friendly
nations, never have they been more cor
dial, as was Indicated In a convincing
manner during the celebration of the
centennial of Mexico's independence."
Peaceably, and seemingly as a happy

and the vice presidency, respectively,

OFFERS TO CUT
Company Makes Proposal for
Reduction to Interstate Com
RAILROADS AND OTHERS
One Side Calls Schedule Too
High and Other Too
CHICAGO, Dec. L An offer of the
Pullman company to reduce the rates
charged for upper berths In slecTlng ears
20 per cent where lower berths were
priced at more than ?1.50, to make the
price of uppers $1.2f, as a minimum and
reduce Home lower berth rates, was op
posed before the Interstate commerce
commission here by attorneys general
of four states and by two railroads.
Opposition to the plan was offered on
the part of the railroads on the allega
tion that they would have to stand part ;
of the brunt of the lessened price, and
by the attorneys general on tho claim
that the reduction was not sufficient.
Interstate Commerce Commissioners
Lane and Clark, therefore, were con
fronted with an offer of voluntary re
duction of rates for uppers (also a num
ber of material reductions on lower berth
rates), which the railroads said was too
much and the state officials called too
Give Proposed Schedule.
The whole matter came In a combin
ing of all complaints ngainsl sleeper
rates In one hearing by the commission,
following an order from the federal cir
cuit court that previous cuts ordered by
the commission were not justified.
The Pullman company's reduction
schedule Included the following cuts on
lower berth rates, upon which. ;is on re
maining existing rates, the SO per cent
charge for uppers was proposed to be
applied, the effort being, -according to
the company's representatives, to charge
an average of six mills per mile: Chi
cago to New York, unchanged: New York
to Tampa, 50 cents; Poughkeepsle to
Elkhart and South Bend, Ind., $1: New
York to St. Augustine. Fla., or Savannah,
Ga., 51; Now York to East S't. Louis,
111.. 75 cents.
New rates proposed by tho company
include these: St. Paul or Minneapolis to
Seattle and Pacific coast points. $11; New
York to New Orleans. 58; Chicago to San
Francisco, 513. The former Minnesota
Pacific coast rate was 512. that from
Chicago to San Francisco, 514.
The commission will hear further ar
guments and If .held advisable will re
ceive evidence in the specific case.
Hill's Eoad Protests.
The Great Northern railroad: which
owns lis own sleeping ears, protested
against the 'proposed reduction on the
ground that It would have to meet the
reduction and would have to stand the
entire loss. Tho CIU"engo, Milwaukee &
St. Paul, which also owns lm own sleep
ers, was represented, but made no com
ment on the proposal. Later, they de
clared they were prepared to resist the
Pullman company's offer.

SPOKANE. Wash.. Nov. L The Wo

ganized since tho recent coual suffrage
victory in this slate, adopted a resolu

"in view of the fact that ex-Senator
George Turner of Spokane, when associ
ate Justice of the territory of Washing
ton, held that women suffrage was un
constitutional and that since that time his
attitude has been hostile to the suffrage
cause and the enfranchisement of women,
we wish to protest against his appoint

a corps of surveyors, with transits, red
flags, stakes and chains, is busy mapping
out the course of what promises to be
the connecting link of a transcontinental
rullroud line of the Burlington system.
For several days these .sui-veys have
been progressing, and locations made are
securely marked with substantial Iron

Eapid Transit Gets Busy.
Following closely on the heels of thl'
rumor the Ogden Rapid Transit compute
started to build Its electric line througii
Ogden canyon and has been operating it
as far us the Hermitage hotel since that
time. It was said then that, a deal be--x
tween David Eccles. president of the
Rapid Transit company, and the Burling
ton officials, by which the rlght-of-wav JJPI
through the canyon, owned by the local ijH
company, was to be conveyed to the Bur
Ilnglon for a mammoth consideration,
was being negotiated. lljV
Now, It appears that if the Uurllnglon
Intends to extend its llnca Into Utah and
then on to the coast, the line through
Ogden canyon will be built Independently ijjH
of the property of the Rapid Transit
Above County Eoad.
The course taken by the railroad sur

averages seventy feet above the county
road running through the gorge. Engl
neers say that such a line is highly prac

have to be expended In Its construction.
Rumors now arc atloat that the Bur
lington system Is negotiating with the
Salt Lake & Ogdon Railroad companv for
the purchase of the tatter's line between
Ogdcn and Salt Lake. Surveyors engaged
