McCutcheon.l N FLAMES MENAGE Manv Believe tlie Furtherance of Policy of Extension of the System Through Phoenix to Pa cific Coast FULLEST INQUIRY IS ALSO SOUGHT Similar Proposal to New Mexico Corporation Com mission as That Marie to Svstcm Wanted n i . I What is regarded by many promin- j (nt business men as another step in ! the coast to coast railway that shall ' have Phoenix as one of its important j stations, was taken Saturday when the Kl Paso Southwestern railway system ! tVirnnoli i-ra farr-i tt.lrtiwV Uau L'itiB and Franklin of KI Paso, filed with the j Arizona corporation commission an an- I plication for permission to consolidate j the entire railway holdings within the ' Xew Mexico, into one vast system, un der the one management and control, j thus doing away with the many little : pos? the system. In addition to this, and 'n further anoe of the proposition the company j asks that the corporation commission I make a physical inspection of the en- j tire system, little roads and all, and j make any further investigations and inquiries that may seem proper and right in the matter. It is likely, therefore, before th-9 re quest is granted, that the commission, or at least one commissioner and the attorney general will take a trip over -pe system a.s known in Arizona and also over the Nw Mexico holdings of ! the company. The company asks per- ! mission to make the consolidation in j th confidence of the public. i The company further, has indicated ! that it proposes to take, and has takn J similar steps in New Mexico, to have j the corporation commission of that ptate make similar investigations of the property in order that permission may bf obtained in New Mexico for a similar action. Many are of the opin ion that this action on the part of the El Paso and Southwestern system will.' in addition to leading to a physical valuation of the system, be but the forerunner of the extension of the line to the coast. The fact that "VTalter Douglas, general manager of the Cop per Queen company and high in the railroad secrets of the great Phelps. Dodge corporation which owns both the copper interests and the railway, has led the Phoenix delegation recently sent to him, to hope for an early ex tension of the system to this section, leads many business :.nd profession men to believ that Phoenix will be on the line from Chicago to the coast. That the railroad needs salt water, and i-s seeking a way out is an ad mitted fact. Many believe also that it wants Salt River water as well. In the application the company sets out that the bonded indebtedness and outstanding stocks of the company upon the entire Arizona holdings aver ages $41,000 per mile, and the mileage 4."-S33 including the main lir.e. In Xew Mexico the mileage is 440.44. and the indebtedness figured upon the same basis aa that of Arizona. $40,000 per mile. The division of th- lines is a.s follows. From Ilermanes to Deming In Xfw Mexico. Frorn El Paso to Tuc son in both Xew Mexico and Arizona. Krom Douglas to Courtland; from Os born to Bisbee, from Lewis Springs to Fort Iluachuca; from Corta to Lowell. The divisions in X'ew Mexico as fig ured by miles are: The Dawson rail way from Tucumcari to Dawson, : 132.20 miles; The EI Paso Rock Island railway 127.3: the El "Paso Northeast ern railway, 149 miles and the Sacra mento Mountain railway in New Mex ico 31.07 miles. These two taken to gether mak? a splendid system of S9S srid "i miles of road yet without any outlet to the coast. The history of the system is unique. Originally built to carry but ore to the El Paso and Douglas pmeUers, it be came necessary for the system to pur elias'? the Kl Paso Northeastern con nection with the Rock Island in order to get its freight into. Douglas and con tiguous points in anything like shape or celerity. Then the matter of coal came-up and with the discovery of lim itless, coal deposits in New Mexico the comnany decided to build to the coal fields in order to haul its own coal to Its own smelters. Forced into the railroad business afmin?,t its will, the company has con sistently built up a splendid system by taking the public into its confidence at the right time, giving absolute service to the public, exhibiting public spirit in every community in which it has gone, assisting in building up the com munity, and always playing a square deal with the people. There is not a town upon the nearly nine hundred miles of the system, where the citi znes do not swear by the El Paso and Southwestern system. Phoenix has long wished to be one ' J. yg - -"vjj y tl f (S fV.i 1 Y)l f U'ffii a ifL ' 9 WrXfikst. v - fjf 'f- jpi kak.mk. -: 'Tv1 ijMVW 2Tnv .V.v w v i vt ....

The most searching investigation ever undertak en into the private affairs and business connections of members of the United States senate will be the outgrowth of the lobby investigation which will be opened tomorrow" morning before the sub-committee of the senate judiciary committee. While the president's recent dec-la- i ration that a powerful lobby it at work attempting the influence action on the tariff bill forms the basis of the sen- ate investigation the questions pre- i pared tonight by the committee to be ! asked of each member of the senate- are such as will carry the investiga tion far outside of tariff matters. Each senator will .be required to tell iiml r i oath whether he has an interest in any matter affected by the bill now be- j fore congrciss or that has been before the senate during his term and wheth- ( er or not he has ever tried to influence j any other senator to vote for a metis- i ure in which lie is interested. Chairman Overman of the sub-committee expressed the opinion tonight that the committee's questions would require a statement by each senator as to how the- business interests he may- have would be affected bv the tariff 1 currency or any other legislation. Many members of the senate are op enly asociated in manufacturing, trad ing, livestock, lumber, financial, farm ing, corporations cr interests. Under the questions of the committee, they probably would be required to give any such connections in detail and wheth er the tariff would affect their busi ness in any way. o KLAWITTER BACK.

"Maie the j republicans work" is the slogan adopt- j ed by the democratic leaders of the) senate in charge of the tariff legisla tion who today predicted . the senate will vote on the bill by August 1. Members of the finance committee said the bill will be reported to the senate on June 23. "We will keep the republicans who want to discuss the bill working, as we have kept at work ourselves from the very beginning" Senator Hoke Smith said. "We will meet in the senate every day at ten in the morning and keep at work until six at nighf. That will pre vent the opposition from delaying the birrl)y playing with it. We will tire the republicans out of playing." It was made evident that the fight among the democrats on the wool and sugar schedules of the bill will be con cluded in caucus and the leaders as sert the bill can be passed as Wilson approves it. They admit, however, it will probably require the vote of vice-, president Marshall to pass the bill, un less Senator Poindexter, the only j avowed progressive1, in the senate votes measure. . : . for the Increases of all articles on the cot ton schedule that may be classed as luxuries Vill be made by the senate finance sub-committee. Members of the committee admitted this today as serting that expensive cotton table covers, table cloths of the finer grades and tapestry- articles will be raised. One reduction of the cotton schedule will be made, the rate on cotton card laps robing, being reduced from ten to five per cent. On cotton yarns the duties will be increased ten per cent to be taken as the lowest rate, instead of five. On all schedules, the sub-committees are working industriously. The citrus fruit rate fight, is was said today, has been practicallv settled and the sub committee will report rates practically as they came from the house. The ag ricultural schedule is still under de bate. Some, attention will also be devoted to an investigation of the West Vir ginia coal strike. Work on the tariff currency will also continue, with sub committees grinding out the tariff schedules. ; President Wilson's correspondence with Senator Tillman :n which it de veloped that the president thought that currency reform is so imperative that an extra session to prevent opportnnity that any artificial financial disturbanc es after the tariff become Iaw will probably be followed soon with a speci al message to congress conveying Wil son's ideas on the subject. 1 -' jz r 1 Twenty Federal Prisoners and Ten United States Officers From Phoenix Have Close Call on Train Near Marion, Texas GAS EXPLODES STARTING BLAZE Car Is Cut Away From Train, Prisoners Marched Out, Another Secured Af ter Which Trip to Atlan ta Is Resumed (Special to The Republican) WELDER. Tex., June 1. Twenty federal prisoners and a party of ten United States officers enroute to the federal prison at Atlanta. Ga., from Phoenix, Ariz., narrowly escaped cre mation at 1 o'clock this afternoon, i hen the prison car in which the long trip was being made took fire and was consumed. As it was one of the prisoners was slightly .burned. The guards, alarmed by the flames within the car, signalled the train men, the train was brought to a stop and the car cut loose. The prisoners in the meantime were tak en out. The train had jiwit left Marion, Texas, when in some manner the gas stove in the car exploded, this ex plosion in turn being followed by an other from the gas tank under the car. In an instant the heavily bar- I red car was in flames. Pandemoni I tun followed, but the guards, quickly marched their charges to the other end of the car, opened the door and prepared to march them into the next car. The train came to a stop about this time and the entire party OetrainecLand remained at the side of the track while the car burned to the trucks. United States Marshal Overlook in charge of the party is at a loss to explain how the explosion occurred. No suspicion attaches at present to any of the prisoners and it is not thought it was part of an attempt at escape. The gas stove could hard MakOjly have been reached by any of the !rri:::ners - ' - i n ' i a delay of one hour, another j suitable car had been secured and the journev was resumed. One of the prisoner who attempted to save some of his belongings was slightly burned, but beyond requiring some medical attention, was not much the worse for the adventure.
