BLICAN RAILROADS Prominent Feature in Trans Mississippi Congress GALVESTON AND DFNVER Intended to Be Chief Bene ficiaries of the Movement Which Will Seek a Re vision of Rail and Ocean Rates. Ivnwr, Col. i ..Aug. IT. Coupled with the possibility of renewed hostili ties between the Pinchot and Ballinger forces, the Trans-Mississippi Com mercial Congress promises to become the battle field of a fight for better rate regulations in the west. The statement that a war on rail road rate': mav break at any time anil be come- the predominant factor in the (1. hi., rations of the congress, was made today by Col. Ike Pr; or, of San An ton;,!, Texas, chairman of the execu tive eomniittete. He declared that Cal ve ston and Denver businessmen will open the fight with a resolution de manding' that an equitable revision of rail and ocean rates between New York and Denver be made. According to Col. Pryor's statement, the ocean rate between New York and Oalvcston has Ix-r-n lowered enough to provide Denver shippers sn incentive to bring their goods to the Texas port for shipment over local lines to Ienver, thus obtaining a reduced rate. It is now charged that the railroads have increased the local rail rate between Galveston and Denver to a point w here it is a matter of little choice whether goods are brought via the ocean or Putin!'- l.j rail, , -.. Col. Pryor alo was authority for the statement that the Pini hot-Pallinger controversy will find no place in the d. lilx rations of the congress unless some hot-headed delegate springs a resolution on the floor which will precipitate a battle. Thomas F. Walsh, the millionaire mine owner of Colorado and John Barrett, director of the P.ureau of American Republics were the principal speakers of the afternoon. Mr. Walsh uttered a pica for the opening of vast tracts of western lands t the eastern farmer and the city-bred man. He said he believed the answer to the crowded tenamcnts and city Ghettos lay in the irrigation of the arid w est. Mr. Barrett spoke of the improve ment" in reclamation among the Latin American countries. I-a Verne W. Noyes of Chicago, president of the Na tional Business I-ngne of America, delivered an address on the American consular service, in which he expiated on the value of the consular agent to the American shipper and the produc ing market. Truman 1. Palmer of Chicago spoke on the sugar beet industry. Insurance was the topic at the evening session and the principal address was delivered bv Samuel Bosworth Smith of Chat tanooga, Tenn., president of the Ameri can Life convention. In speaking of insurance in the west, he said the peo ple of the middle west and trans-Mississippi states, paid in premiums to life insurance companies, $171,0iin,0rt0. He attacked the tax laws proposed int he various states and particularly the tax on coriorat ions proposed by Presi dent Taft. E. T. Campbell, of St. Isolds, spoke on fire waste and Thomas P.. Love ..f Austin. Texas, spoke on the Robertson law of Texas. It if. expected that 2,fKtO more dele gates from the west and northwest will arrive tomorrow and with the coming of this addition to the delegates the real work of the congress will be gin.

Aug. 17 The coroner's jury which investigated the head-on collision on the Denver and Rio Grande railroad at Hasted, Colo., on Saturday morning, when ten peo ple were killed and three score in jured, late today returned its verdict.

At the con clusion of today's war maneuvers in the war game in which the army of the "Red." under Brigadier General Tasker Bliss, striving to defeat ' the army of the "Blue," commanded by Brigadier General William A. Pew Jr., and capture Boston, the army of the "Red" made a material advance. At the extreme left of the Blue" line three re; Intents are facing practically the entire army of the "Reds." Gen eral Bliss' southward movement was cleanly executed and gave evidence that the "Red" scouts had fully post ed General Bliss on the positions of the "Blues." At Middleboro Green, Major Chas. H. Cutler of the "Blue" army, with three skeleton coniinies of the Kighth infantry, was encountered and rendered non-combatant in quick time. If it had been actual warfare it is lM'lieved there would not have been a "Blue" soldier left half an hour after the engagement liegan. The country roads were rendered riv ers of mud by the most severe rain storm of the summer. The soldiers suffered severely. o THEY WANT THE FIGHT FOUGHT OVER AGAIN Ballinger-Prichot Feud to Com Up in National Irrigation Congress. Seattle, Aug. 17. Irrigation men of Montana. Idaho, Oregon.
