tion to amalgamate the National Live
Stork association and the American

that would also dispose of the much
mooted question of representation of
the packing, railroad and commission
house Interests was taken up at a Joint
conference of the executive commit
lees of the two organization! at the
Brown Palace hotel today. A plan out
lined by a sub-committee was voteii
down after a. somewhat extended dis
cussion find the sub-committee was In
structed to make another effort to for
mulate a plan that would be accept
able to all Interests. The sub-com-inlttee
will report again tomorrow.
The report which was defeated to
day, recommended that the Nationa'
l.lvn Stock association be changed to r.
National Live Stock committee, con
sisting of representatives of the pro
ducers of live stock. This committer
would In turn appoint committees on
railroads, packing houses, eommlsslm
houses, etc., which would give those
Interests a representation and a right
to be heard whenever they felt thi
need of expression. The report also
recommended that the American
Stock Growers' association becoin.

ers' association, with a membershii
consisting of cattle, horse and swine
growers. The sheepmen, the report
suggested, should affiliate with the

The people of Alhutiuc roue and of

more or less concerned at Hie stories

the story that work on the extension

"I was In Pittsburg." said Mr. Hope

his life. I regret the whole mattei

"When I was in Pittsburg at the

eive personal statements from Fran-
Is J. Torrance. T. Lee Clarke and Ar
thur Kennedy, of their financial staini

Cnslle Seeking Political Filed.
"A great many garbled state
ments," said Mr. Hopewell, have been
primed regarding tin- road and re
garding its affairs ami the men who
are bucking it. Homer Castle, the
prohibition candidate for supreme
judge, who has been making reckless
.statements in I'ittsbutg, shows how
little he knows about the whole busi
ness, when he says the Sania l-'e Cen
tral runs from Andrews to Torrance,
when Andrews Is not within live hun
dred miles of any part of -t.be Santa Fe
Central. Certainly the city of .Santa
Fe will lint be llattered to lie re
ferred to as a 'collection of shan
ties.' Torrance .Not a Politician.
"The gentlemen intei-sted in the
Santa. Fe Central are putting their
money into the road In good faith,
and It is not political money. Tór
rame, Kennedy ami Clark have al
ways had the reputation or being
among the most upright men in Penn
sylvania. Mr. Torrance Is chairman
of the stale board of charities, hut is
not a politician In any sense of the
word. He gives more for charities
probably than any other private (ill
en of th" state nf Pennsylvania.
"Senator Kennedy Is now a resilient
-f Ne.w York state and has no politi
al interest- in Pennsylvania. He
lakes mi part In state polities and his
chief Interests a,re In trolley lines In
Indiana. While Mr. Clark was a
school director and was much Inter-;
esled In the municipal affairs of
Pittsburg, he was far from being a
politician. I know Mr. Kennedy and
Mr. Torrance so well that I am satis
fied neither man would allow anyone
lo lose a cent of money on their ac
count or on enterprise In which they
are Interested. '
"While Mr. Andrews Is Interested in
politics, there Is a big light now on
against Penrose and his following, and
anything like the present occurrence Is
of course proiii4ly seized on by the
enemies of Mr. Andrews to make .po
litical capital. The whole business
has been grossly misrepresented, In
my opinion."

affairs of tile bank were placed, there
were discovered I no notes which

The latter lias contended right along
that there was no paper in the pos
session of the bank which showed his
signature. F.x.i miner 1 'unningham did
not give out any data relative to the
two Andrews notes, and he has abso
lutely refused to say anything about
them. Mr. Ciinuitmhaiu having read
the statements in the newspapers by
Andrews, was almost convinced that
there was nothing in Hie vault that
bore Andrews' name, and when he
found the notes with "W. II. Andrews''

Il was stated today by a director of
the company that when monev was
needed for Hie railroad in New Mex
ico, tin' officers of t he road would tie
po-it a ili.ift In the Neiy Mexico bank
drawn upon Treasurer Clark. The ex

stitution which handled the llnamlal
alt ills of the companies. I f the mon
ey was not on hand it would be neces

For this purpose Treasurer Clark
was supplied witii notes Indorsed In

Ceicral. To what extent these notes
wen used may never become publicly
known. Tiie statement has been
made 1 hat slmlli.r notes are now In
other banks of the two cities. The
suicide of Clark may tiring thesif to
tho attention of the directors of the
company, and according to Uieir state
ment, tlfese will- be paid. To what
extent these notes were discounted by
the Fnterprlse National may not be

discussing the matter, stated that
while the directum of thu company
were uninformed as to the extent of
any notes outstanding, that If the au

marked event in the history of the

welcome that left no room for doubt
or their sincerity. The city was in
gala attire and business was practical

distinguished guest. South Carolina,

added Its welcome to the outh.
Threatening clouds of the early
morning failed to loose their weight ot
rain, and although a chilling wind pre
vailed through the entire day, it failed
to cool the ardor of the welcome.
Numerous extra trains brought thele
burden of Georgians from the sur
rounding country, and It was estimat
ed that not less than 100.000 persons
saw and welcomed the president.
The presidential train came Into tha
handsome new station exactly on time
and us it appeared threading lu way
through the ma.e of tracks In H10
yards it was given a noisy welcome by
all the steam whistles In that part of
the city. The demonstration Increased

Here In Hits great industrial renter,
11 this city which Is a typical south
ru city, ami therefore a typical
mericaii city, it Is natural to consid
er certain phases of the many-sided
industrial problem which this ireiier-

that something must be mild as an
itTset lor exerythiiiK we get and for
verythlng we accomplish. This Is
