He said, when asked where this monoy would be spent: Announcement as to whoro it will bo spent will be made from tho local offices In a short time. I will merely gay that in tho main It will be ex pended on the standard lines. We have not undertaken to broad gaugo tho line ovor Marshall pass this year. The principal reason for not doing so has been tho scarcity of labor. The great Improvements of tho Denver & Rio Grando at Soldier Summit In Utah, by which a dotour is made and the grade lowered, have been handicapped considerably by tho lack of labor, but the work Is being pushed energetically and It la ex pected will bo completed by thlB fall. Extensive Improvements at Grand Junction, including a largo new roundhouse, have been ordered re cently. Tho sum to be expended there, it Is estimated, will go close to $200,000.

LITIGATION WOULD BE MUCH REDUCED Leaders Look Upon the Pro posal With Great Interest; Matter Is Discussed With the President. WASHINGTON, May 10. Chairman Simmons of the finance committee sees merit in tho amendment to the tariff bill suggested today by Assistant At torney General Dcnnison and Assistant Secretary of tho Treasury Curtis to authorize the secretary of tho treasury to proclaim valuations on imports that would prevent undervaluations and to avoid confudon resulting from fluc tuation of foreign marKet values and ad valorem rates. After the department officials had explained their proposed amendment to the senator today, he declared it a wor thy proposal, and that it would recoivo tho most thorough consideration by tho committee. The plan seemed to hini to bo of chief value as a preventive of fraud on tho part of importers in willful undervaluations to reduce du ties thoy would be required to pay. Contains Safeguards. "The bill as it is," Chairman Sim mons said, "has many safeguards against undervaluations, but the pro possal to empower tho secretary of tho treasury to fix import valuations in tho American market would be an ad ditional check. It would answer the principal objection advanced toward an ad valorem tariff system. Tho sugges tion will) bo given tho most serious. con sideration. " Tho plan will be taken up by the committeo next week. Chairman Un derwood of tho ways and moans com mittee also was consulted by Mr. Den ison and Mr. Curtis. Chief interest in the tariff now lies in tho contest over tho 'question of pub lic hearings precipitated by Senator Penrose. Thero is a possibility that the Republicans may rally enough Dem ocratic support to their plan to defeat the majority party in its tariff pro gramme at this juncture. Such a de velopment undoubtedly would result in slowing up consideration of tho meas ure in tho senate That is tho Demo cratic chief objection to public hear ings. They feel that hearings would not rosult in material alterations - of the bill and that tho country is enti tled to tho now law as Boon as it pos sibly can be made ready for tho statuto books. Publicity Is Favored. Senators Ransdell and Thornton of Louisiana are openly in favor of the hearings. Senator Martine and others have expressed themselvos favorably to them, but the Democratic loaders assort that they will have onough vqtea to de feat thje Penrose amendment when it comes up Tuesday. The bill then will . be formally referred to the finanoo com mittee. Secretary Redfiold today suggested to Chairman Simmons that the commit- too considor tho advisability of chang ing the date that somo of the schoduloB become effective. Tho textile industry is particularly desirous of gaining a lit tlo time to adjust itself to the now conditions and to got rid of valuable materia upon which high duties havo been paid. Anothor suggestion made by Socro tary Rodfiold roforrod to tho advisabil ity of having the income tax computed from July 1, 1918, instoad of January 1, 1913. President Is Pleased. President Wilson haB been apprised that the ad vnlorom amendment would cut down litigation, take much work. from the board of appraisers and is believed by its proponents to bo ab solutely necoBsarv for the successful working of an acT valorem tariff bill. Another amondmon't proposed would mako it unlawful for any person to take up appoala from appraised valuations on a contingent foe bnsis. Assistant Attorney Gonenil Deniuou said today that the amondment with tho provision already in the bill requiring a foe of $1 for appeals, would curtail customs litigation 50 por cent. With tho senate in adjournment until Tuosday, tho Republican light against consideration of thef tariff bill by tho finance committeo without public hear ings will bo continued, the Republican lenders endeavoring to win votes for tho Ponroso amendment to instruct tho committeo to open its doors. j I Committee of Local Associa tion Alleges State Examiners Violate Law; Secretary Ac cused of Accepting Bribe. PETITION FILED WITH GOVERNOR Officials Deny Accusations and Aver Petitioners Are Trouble-makers; Request an Investigation. In a communication received by Gov ernor Spry two weeks ago but mado public yesterday for the first time, se rious charges are brought against tho Btate board of barber examiners.

Just what action will bo taken has not yot been determined by Governor Spry, but it is expoctcd that tho barbers making tho charges will bo in vited to appear and substantiate their allegations. It is probable also that tho board of examiners will bo invitod to attend the same meeting to make reply. The barbers charge that tho board has paid out large sums of monoy with out requiring tho presentation of an itemized and verified claim; that Dr. Benedict has been paid an excess in foes for medical examinations aggro gating about $-100; that large amounts havo been paid to deputies, whereas tho latter, it is alleged, arc required by law to servo without pay; that other amounts havo been paid by the board for services not rendered, and especially that moneys have been disbursed for the use of an automobilo owned by one of tho members; that tho records of the board aro kept in a "loose and imper fect mannor; " that one diBbursomont of $800 was mado for j the inspection of ninotcon counties with no itemized or verified bills to Bhow tho character of tho oxpondituro; that the board has acted in tho nature of a detectivo agonoy to assist tho United States pos tal authorities in securing evidence; that there are othor acts of misconduct which cannot bo shown excepting by an examination of tho records of the body. Would Have Examination. Tho writteu charges conclude with a petition that tho governor issue a cita tion requiring the board to appear for an examination and that, if tho peti tioners substantiate thoir allegations, the board bo removed from oflice. A supplementary charge, signed by O. J. Rasmasou and Adam Sikorski,-nnd sworn to before n notary public, alleges that Secretary Watts of tho board has received monoy in the nature of a bribe with tho understanding that a certain (unnamed) applicant for examination as a barber bo passed and roccivo a certificate as a licensed barber. In its reply to tho chargos tho board says that all its accounts are itemized and verified before a .warrant is drawn and that tho warrant itaolf is also item ized; that tho foes paid for medical ex aminations aro only paid in accordance with n spociflc provision of the state law; that all deputies serve without pav oxcopting that whon they are com pelled to leavo thoir own busi'ncBBos and go to adjacent towns on the orders of tho board tho.y aro paid $3 a day and allowed 10 cents per milo for each ac tual mile traveled; that tho methods of kooping the records aro not "loose and imporfect;' that the books aro opon for inspection at any time and place; that tho charge of bribury of tho secretary is a reflection on tho en tiro board and that tho accusers should Continued on Pago Two,).
