I OPEN DENVER GATES
B Wadleigh Instructs Passenger Agents To Give
B All Eastern Connections of Line
H "An Even Break."
B The Union Pacific will issue an order within n Bhort time clos-
H ing the Ogdcn gateway to the Denver and Rio Grande on all tickets
m sold cast of Denver and Colorado common points. This will cut the
B Denver and Rio Grande out of much of the Yellowstone Pork
M travel where the tourista come from cast of Denver. Tho order
B was issued last spring hut was held in abeyance until he intcr-
M stute commerce commission passed .on its merits. The commis-
M sion decided that it did not have the power either to compel the
B Union Pacific system to keep tho Ogdcn gateway open or to cause
H it to be closed. The interstate commerce commission asserted in
H its findings that tho keeping of the gateway .open would mean n
m greater volume of traffic for the Oregon Short Line.
H It is expected in Utah railroad circles that the Union Pacific
B system will issue the order shortly after January 1st nnd that the
B dale for closing the gateway will be set for March 1st. When the
B first order was issued the Denver and Rio Grande enlisted the
B support of all the commercial clubs and civic organizations in Utah,
B Idaho and Colorado to protest against it. Petitions were circuln-
B ted throughout the three states and wcro forwarded to the inter
B state commerce commission asking that the order of tho Union
B Pacific system be abrogated.
HHB Under the order, when it becomes effective, it will be Impos-
B siblc for a traveler to buy a ticket in Denver or any Eastern city
H to Yellowstone National Park or to any local point on tho Oregon
B Short Line or OrcgonWashington Railroad nnd Navigation com-
H pany's line over tho Denver nnd Rio Grande to Salt Lako City and
- then over tho Union Pacific system to destination. The Union
B Pacific system will also get the long haul on all business coming
H from local points, us passengers from Oregon, Washington nnd
H Idaho cannot be routed through Salt Lako City over the Denver
K and Rio Grande to Eastern points when the order is effective.
H No further protest on tho order can be made by the Denver
H and Rio Grnndc, since the interstate commerce commission has
B already decided that it has no jurisdiction over the Ogdcn gate-
B way. The gateway has been closed to freight shipments more
HB than three years. Tho closing of this gateway has made it cs-
pcclally hard on tho coal mining companies of Carbon county and
H of Eastern Utah.
K, Harx Thrown Down East of Denver.
H; The Denver nnd Rio Grande has "thrown down the bars" in so
HHB far ns passenger traffic with connecting lines is concerned. Effec-
H tivo at once nnd indefinitely tho Missouri Pacific will receive no
K preference in eastern passenger business solicitations by rcpro-
B xentatives of the Denver nnd Rio Grnndc. All eastern connections
Bpi will be given an even break in so far as the Denver nnd Rio Grande
BPS is concerned. Such was tho announcement made in a letter re-
B ceived Inst Saturday nt Salt Lake City by J. D. Kcnworthy. assist-
B ant general freight and passenger agent, from V. A. Wndiclgh of
PhB Denver, passenger traffic mannger of tho company.
Bhhb Although no official announcement hns been made of the di-
B vorco of th) traffic departments of tho Denver and Rio Grnndc and
B the Missouri Pacific, Wndlcigh's letter clearly stated that all cast-
BB crn connections, including tho Missouri Pacific, aro to bo given an
BBBv even break on through passenger business, effective upon receipt
BBBB of tho letter. This is tho first step toward opening tho Denver
BB gatewny to eastern lines entering thnt city nnd will result in a
JBBBl much more satisfactory understanding between representatives of
BB k Denver and Rio Grande nnd Utah representatives of connect
jBBBBBBBB ing lines.
EBBBff Denver nnd Rio Grande passenger men nre now nt liberty to
B solicit eastern business nnd ticket the pntrons over any line de-
BB sired cast of Denver or Pueblo.

has been prepared In report form.
Prosecutions nre being considered In

nhort nnd the shortage In outside of n
reasonable variation. .
Tho report extends from November
Zld to December 3d. Altogether forty-three
loads delivered by thirteen
companies were Inspected. Of these
twenty-one were short, ranging from
five pounds to six hundred nnd ninety
pounds. Fourteen loads were over
weight, tanging from five to two hun
dred pounds. Tour loads Just bal

hundred pounds had been thrown off

weight, Hmlth. In addition to the
prosecutions contemplated nnd the

the companies to be more careful In
the future, has ndopted n policy,

In the first place tho use of shorter

which petmlt the horses to stand on
the platform, In the opinion of the
state sealer of weights nnd measures,
are responsible for much of the dis
crepancy existing, lie cites the fact
that horses, working nnd sweating,
vary greatly In weight before nnd af
ter being permitted to dtlnk large
ipiantltles of water.
The department next Is going to In
sist that the weight of the wngon bo
taken before and after each loading
nnd delivery. The custom bus been
to weigh the wngons weekly. This
hns caused much discrepancy. It Is
mild, because the drivers, working by
numbers, not Infrequently lose their
numbers or get them mixed or take
out the wrong wagon.

regulations governing the sale of coal,
