DENVER ANNOUNCEMENT DOVETAILS INTO

DENVER, May 13. The Times says: Official an
nouncements were made this morning by the Colorado
railroads of new railroad costruction work to cost the
enormous estimated total of $54,000,000, to be inaugur
ated in this state and contiguous territory within tlie
next few weeks.
The plans include the construction of more than two
hundred miles of new road by the Burlington; 84 miles
hy the Colorado & Southern';. 120 miles by the Denver

Northwestern; 250 miles by the San Luis Southern; 500

MEANS BUILDING OF DURANGO LINE
That tho Globe-Durango railroad, the contemplation of which is admitted
by oven tho most conservative railroad officials, is to bo constructed within
a short time is clearly indicated by the above Associated Press dispatch
That, out of some 1,300 miles of now railroad to bo constructed in Colo
rado and "contiguous territory," as stoted by the dispatch, much of tho
work contemplated by the' Southern Pacific, the Denver & Kio Grande and
tho Colorado & Southern is to bo included in tho Globe-Durango line, is
Although no definito announcement has boon made to tho effect that the
right of way through tho Box canyon of tho Oila river has been secured by
tho Southern Pacific, tho granting of this right of way within a short time is
practically assured, according to tho opinion in railroad and government cirj
cles generally. As this small picco of right of way is realty the most im
portant acquisition tho Southern Pacific could make in tho cntiro southwest,
it is believed that tho fight for tho uso of this cut off has been practically
won and that tho construction of tho, Globe-Durango line will follow in tho im
David Day, editor of tho Durango Democrat, and a big booster for the
GloboiDurango lino, who is no win Arizona, has in rccont interviews given out
practical assurances that tho road would bo built, his information coming
from sources considered to bo thoroughly reliable.
All of these facts, coupled with tho official announcement from Denver,
of tho construction of so much now road in and contiguous to Colorado, much
of which can apparently apply only to the Globo-DurangQ lino nnd its branch
es, makes it clearly apparont that the construction of this -very important
lino will bo commenced in tho immediate future.

Attorney Vcrtrees, counsel for Bellin

Ballinger was excused from the, stand

that ho might bo recalled for further

said tho car would bo back in the race

LIONS AND LAMBS
Aldrich Satisfied and Says
the Principal Can Easily
WASHINGTON, D. C, May 13. By
a sudden welding late today of suppos
edly irreconcilable fatcions, tho senate,
by a vote of 55 to 10, adopted the com
promise amendment to tho railroad bill
for tho regulation of relative charges
for long and short hauls.
The agreement was reached chiefly
because each faction apparently
thou'ght it was getting the better of a
shrewdly driven again. Some of the
senators tonight suggest that tho su
preme court may have to arbitrate the
question as to which faction's judge
ment is correct.
Before" adjournment Senator Bacon
sought to show that Senator Aldrich,
leader of the forces in charge of the
bill, had voted for a revision different
from that which ho had advocated dur
ing the long debate on this question.
Senator Bailoy remarked that Bacon
was mistaken and was quoting from his
"I hope the senator from Texas will
not interfere," said Aldrich laughingly,
"the senator is trying to justify his
action in voting with me."
"That is a time usually to justify
my vote," retorted Bacon.
After the vote several senators said
that the opponents of the long and
short haul provisions had been com
pelled to accept a provision which they
had denou'need as revolutionary.
Bacon oienly taunted Aldrich with
being willing to accept anything to
preservo his prestige and prevent an
appearance of defeat.
"I hojie the senator has not forgot
ten," interposed Aldrich, "the adage
that 'he laughs best who laughs last.' "
Bacon promptly interpreted this as a
confession that Aldrich is counting up
on having the provision htricken out in
"I do not mean anything of the
sort," he said emphatically. "I be
lieve the provision can be defended on
the principles I have been advocating,"
Mr. Ileyburn, who fought the amend
ment at every stage, closed by assert
ing that it "had been a great day for
the railroads, xneir nag nas Deen ny

An uprising of serious proportions has

northwest of here, and tonight troops

The uprising of tho Pueblos, for
years a peaceful, law-abiding people,
is believed to be caused by the punish

ties. For years the Pueblos governed
themselves, electing their own chiefs
and village councillors, who tried and
punished malefactors of the tribe with
out recourse or appeal to tho territorial
authorities. Some months ago an In
dian of the Isleta pueblo was imprison
ed by territorial officers, and in spite
of appeals to the tribal courts and the
councillors of the village, was put in
jail. Since then the Indians have been
For several weeks ranchers near Taos
have found fences cut and their stock
missing, but the discontent of the In
dians culminated yesterday in the at

Taking the census is also believed to
have caused much unrest among the In
dians. When tho enumerators reached
Santo Domingo and Fan Dia pueblos
they were refused all information con
cerning members of the tribe and were
threatened with violence. Only after
a threatened call for troops and former
Governor Curry had gone personally to
the chiefs and reassured them about
the purpose of the census were the In
dians persuaded to answer questions.

PHOENIX, Ariz., May 13. Ernest

crowd on their arrival here this morn

the day in their cell at the county jail.
Both are disinclined to talk and refuse

from Oklahoma about the first of the

Creates Precedent in Order
ing Flannery Jury to
SAN RAFAED, Cal., May 3. An ad
journment was taken this afternoon
in the trial of Harry P. Flannery, for
mer president of the Saw Francisco po
lice commission, until Monday morning
at 10 o'clock, at the request of District
tict Attrney Boyd. Boyd declared that
new developments in the case within
the last twenty-four hours demanded
tho attention of Sheriff Taylor, who was
to have bicn called as the next witness.
Prior to adjournment of court, Judge
Lennon ordered the jury into the cus
tody of the sheriff and arranged for
accommodations at the hotel until the
end of the trial.
This is the first time Judge Lennon
has ever ordered a jury into custody,
and this fact, coupled with the state
ment of yesterday that he did not in
tend to do so unless unusual circum
stances should arise, led to rumors of
jury tampering. . .
Tho only witnesses examined during
the day were Robert N. Wood, a young
Selma farmer, who was swindled out
of $800 in tho Sausalito fake pool room,
and Edward A. Franquelin, local man
ager of a telephone company.
