PURE FOOD COMMISSION
MAY INVESTIGATE SOARING
PRICES ON FOODSTUFFS.
Coming Legislature Expected to Give
Board Power to Inquire Into
Market Conditions.
WMt«rn Newspaper Union News Servlc®.
Denver.—Expansion of the scope of
the State Pure Food Commission to
investigate rumored combinations
that make for soaring prices on food
stuffs, and to watch the market facil
ities and the storage conditions on
fruits and foodstuffs generally, is to
be considered by the coming Legisla
ture.
The Pure Food Commission is con
ducted in connection with the State
Board of Health by John Lynch, com
missioner. Its powers at present are
restricted to investigations for impur
ities of foodstuffs.
From the standpoint of health, the
board is believed by a number of leg
islators to be the logical body to con
duct thru the activities of the com
mission, investigations that will ex
pose trade combinations wherein the
consumer holds the sack.
Again, it would give the health
board certain additional powers to
compensate, in a way, for the author
ity shorn from its activities by the
medical practice bill, which became a
law a few days ago. Instead of a sub
sidiary committee of the health board
acting on the licenses of physicians,
the new law provides for that duty to
bo performed by the State Board of
Medical Examiners.
The first intimation of such a per
manent body to be invested with pow
ers similar in many respects to the
State Public Utilities Commission,
through legislative enactment, came
from Leon M. Hattenbach, representa
tive-elect from Denver.
Senator Knauss and Senator-elect
Dunklee of Denver and Representa
tive Ardourel of Boulder also are mak
ing investigations to determine what
is the best method to follow in estab
lishing a commission that would be
sufficiently empowered to make the
proper investigations and prevent
soaring prices when conditions did not
warrant such increases.
Medical Practices Act Goes Into Effect.
The medical practice act, passed by
the last Legislature and referred to
the voters in the recent election, be
came law when Governor Carlson is
sued a proclamation to that effect. The
bill caried by 14,562 votes. The new
law provides for the licensing of all
medical practitioners by a state board
of medical examiners. The nine mem
bers of the board are to be appointed
by the governor. The terms of office
of three will expire in two years, three
in four years and three in six years.
All succesive apjx/intments are to be
made biennially and for a term of
six years.
Many Get Jobs Through U. 8. Bureau.
Through the co-operation of the
United States Immigration Bureau
and the postoffice authorities, the
work of the federal employment bu
reau has risen to a gratifying point,
according to W. R. Mansfield, assist
ant in the office of Henry H. Moore,
chief immigration officer for the Den
ver district. The employment bureau
will be able greatly to increase its
work if the present Congress heeds
the recommendations of Secretary oi
Labor Wilson, who has urged that a
separate bureau of employment be es
tablished.
Gets $205,000 from Auto Licenses.
The enormous increase in automo
bile revenue to the state which has
marked the last year is strikingly
shown in the biennial report of Chiel
Inspector Carl De Loclite of the office
of the secretary of state, which will
be submitted to the coming session ol
the Legislature. The gross receipts
from automobile licenses for 1916 will
be $205,000, as compared to $121,000
for 1915, an increase of $84,000. All
but 10 per cent of this amount, used
for expenses of collection, goes to the
betterment of Colorado highways.
Liquor Shipments Break Record.
Denver folks who partake of intoxi
cating beverages are evidently prepar
ing for Christmas, judging from the
increased number of liquor shipments
received during November. According
to figures compiled in the county re
corder’s office, all records, since Den
ver went dry, were broken during that
month, 9,228 shipments having been
received. The city collected $2,307 in
fees. The shipments ranged in size
from half pints to barrels.
Crean Promoted to Hospital Corps.
Arthur B. Crean of Denver, a mem
ber of the hospital corps at Fort Sain
Houston, Tex., has been promoted to
the rank of first sergeant in the med
ical corps, according to word received
in Denver. j
State Students Need More Room.
The great need of Colorado state ed
ucational institutions is for permanent
improvements and additional facilities
for handling more students. This is
the opinion of Leslie Hubbard, attor
ney general-elect, who has just re
turned from a trip on which he made
an exhaustive study of such institu
tions. The educational system of the
stale schools, Mr. Hubbard believes,
needs no improvement, for it com
pares favorably with that of any state
in the country.
GERMAN PEACE NOTE
TEXT OF MESSAGE WHICH U. S.
WILL PRESENT TO ALLIED
POWERS.
Governments at Vienna, Constanti
nople and Sofia Transmitted Notes
Making Similar Proposals, Which
Were Communicated to Neu
tral Powers.
i ————
Western Newspaper Union News Service.
Berlin, Dec. 13. —Following is the
text of the note addressed by Ger
many and her allies to the hostile gov
ernments:
“To His Excellency, the Ambassador
of the United States of America to
the German Empire:
“The most terrific war ever expe
rienced in history has been raging for
the last two years and a half over a
large part of the world —a catastrophe
which thousands of years of common
civilization was unable to prevent and
which injures the most precious
achievements of humanity.
“Our aims are not to shatter nor
annihilate our adversaries. In spite of
our consciousness of our military and
economic strength and our readiness
to continue the war (which has been
forced upon us) until the bitter end,
if necessary; at the same time,
prompted by the desire to avoid fur
ther bloodshed and make an end to
the atrocities of war, the four allied
powers propose to enter forthwith
into peace negotiations.
“The propositions which they bring
forward for such negotiations and
which have for their object a guaran
tee of the existence of the honor and
liberty of evolution for their nations
are, according to their firm belief, an
appropriate basis for the establish
ment of a lasting peace.
“The four allied powers have been
obliged to take up arms to defend jus
tice and the liberty of national evolu
tion. The glorious deeds of our armies
have in no way altered their purpose.
We always maintained the firm belief
that our own rights and justified
claims in no way control the rights
of these nations.
“The spiritual and material progress
which were the pride of Europe at
the beginning of the twentieth cen
tury are threatened with ruin. Ger
many and her allies, Austria-Hungary,
Bulgaria and Turkey, gave proof of
their unconquerable strength in this
struggle. They gained gigantic advan
tage over adversaries superior in
number and war material. Our Wnes
stand unshaken against ever-repeated
attempts made by armies.
“The last attack in the Balkans has
been rapidly and victoriously over
come. The most recent events have
demonstrated that further continuance
of the war will not result in breaking
the resistance of our forces and the
whole situation with regard to our
troops justifies our expectation of fur
ther successes.
“If, in spite of this offer of peace
and reconciliatioh, the struggle should
go on, the four allied powers are re
solved to continue to a victorious end,
but they disclaim responsibility for
this before humanity and history. The
imperial government, through the
good offices of your excellency, asks
the government of the United States
to bring this communication to the
knowledge of the governments of
France, Great Britain, Russia, Bel
gium, Japan, Serbia and Rumania.
“HOLLWEG.”
Specific Terms Not Named.
Washington, Dec. 13. —The absence
of any specific terms for peace in the
German note or in the German chan
cellor's speech was in a measure a
disappointment to those who expected
some concrete expression of a basis
on which negotiations might begin.
Advices from Berlin to the German
embassy indicate, however, that Ger
many’s peace terms, in general meas
ure, propose the restoration of the
status quo before the war, with the
exception of the establishment of in
dependent kingdoms of Poland and
Lithuania.
They are understood to oropose the
complete restoration of the occupied
portions of Belgium and France in re
turn for Germany’s captured colonies
and to dispose of the Balkan situation,
because of its extremely complicated
nature, in the peace conference.
“In the note the four allied (central)
powers propose to enter forthwith on
peace negotiations. The propositions
which they bring for such negotiatons
are, according to their firm belief, ap
propriate for the establishment of a
’anting peace.
“The governments at Vienna. Con
stantinople and Sofia transmitted
identical notes and also communicat
ed with the holy see and all neutral
powers ’’
The German peace offer was almost
the sole topic of discussion at the din
ner to the Cabinet given by President
and Mrs. Wilson.
“Fight On,” Kaiser Orders Armies.
London. —A Central News dispatch
from Amsterdam says it is announced
officially in Berlin that Emperor Wil
liam has notified his commanding gen
erals of Germany’s peace offer and has
informed them it is still uncertain
whether the offer will be accepted.
Until that uncertainty is ended, the
message says, they are to fight on.
Germany’s move for peace comes
just two years and 133 days after she
declared war on Russia und two years
and 129 days after England declared
war on Germany.
