This committee will make an Investigation \ of the alleged frauds committed at the j election In Denver and report, recom mending a policy to be pursued. The date set for the 'submission of this re port ' la Monday, January 9. Flfty ' seven j Republican legislators attended 1 the caucus and the vote on the propo . sition to appoint the committee re ferred to was 48 to 9. \ ■ "While there wan" some feeling dis played hi the caucus on the part of the • opponents of the plan, it Is confidently , asserted that they will 'make no further fight against the majority, but will ac '.tjulesce to whatever report Is made, by the committee of fifteen. . A long ' caucus was held this after ; noon by: the Republicans prior to ; the afternoon session of 1 the legislature. One element was in favor of proceeding •at cilice. with the canvass and of post pontng the receipt of the . governor's message until later. It was dually de termined, however, to put the canvass over until 10 o'clock tomorrow morn .- Ing. '•'•.'■: v ; -■ ' . - ;-■'■ The senate, put the matter squarely : up to the house by sending to that body a' resolution providing for a joint session to canvass the vote at' 2:30 this afternoon. :,Tho notitlcation of the pass age of the resolution was not given to ■ the house until after 3 o'clock and It ■wits ucefpted by the house with the amendment that 10 o'clock tomorrow morning be substituted fur the canvues instead tot this afternoon. ■ :"i Clerk Harper, of. the house was then >ent to Inform the senate that the house wan prepared to enter Into Joint session lor ; Hi.'

The. message mid- by. the governor '' dealt, for the 'most' part, with recommendations con cerning reports from the various stale institutions. . On the question of elec tions the, message was as follows: "The fraudulent conduct of elections under our present ' system demands your .'Immediate, and concentrated ac tion.' ' In a general way it, seems suft! dent to say that' a modern primary "and registration law should be enacted and the advisability of introducing vot ing machines should be considered, in furrow .we must admit that the elec tive franchise, especially in, Denver, has been sadly misused and prostituted. J Pot lent people- protest and these out rages ■ should be ended." ' Peabody on Labor Troubles : .On tile labor . troubles the. governor, after urging the adoption of a reason able eight-hour law, said: "Early in my administration a certain organization known ' as . the Western Federation of Miners, claiming public consideration. under the name of labor, whose' 'officers' and those in direct charge of its management are bold, careless, reckless men, attempted, to foment .trouble in ; several Industrial 'sections 'of Colorado to the end that that ■. particular organization should have recognition in" the .operation and management of the mines, mills and smelters, wherever located in the state, .Which', efforts culminated in the arbi trary calling- of the most senseless, causeless, unjustifiable and .' Inexcusa ble 'strikes' ever known in this or any other •country. ■ , "Believing that my duty to the poopl? of this state lay. in protecting life and property in advance of annihilation, 1 proceeded to stop the unlawful methods of this reckless band of men. Suffice it to •; say, law and order was main tained, peace ■ restored and prosperity immediately followed. "I recommend the passage of an act by , your honorable body prohibiting boycotting, picketing, unfair lists or other interference with the lawful busi ness, or occupation of others and pro vide a suitable penalty therefor. ', "The principles. upon which I stand and which have caused me to take th« action i have in maintaining law and order in this state are that the rights of. every citizen to enjoy life and lib erty and the right to acquire, possess, enjoy and protect his property are in herent and indefeasible. The right of the .worklngman to Bell his labor to anyone wishing to purchase it for law ful purposes is 'equally his Inherent right. Labor has undisputed rights to organize and cease work, either us in dividuals or us an organization, for Mich reasons as may seem to them* pelves satisfactory; but when they at tempt to prevent others from perform ing the nuinu work, or to prevent the employer' from employing others to curry on hit) work, their actions are un lawful and cannot be tolerated."

ASPIRANTS SEEK CORPORATE AID WAIT FOR HERRIN, IS THE WORD IN SACRAMENTO QUESTION IS MORE COMPLEX New Factor It Introduced Into Strug* gle by Entry of Abe Ruef, San Francisco's Republican Boss ■ By a Staff Correspondent SACRAMENTO, JbH. s.— "Will the people of California name their next United States Senator or "will they be forced Into the background by the so called 'organization. dominated by Herrln and the railroad gang and be forced to submit to the choice of the corporations?". This Is the question that Independent legislators and inter ested spectators ore now' asking them selves, since It has become evident that certain of the senatorial aspirants arc bailing their claims for the toga upon corporate Influences. . . ... . . . Notwithstanding that the legislature has been In session for four. days, the senatorial question is more ' compli cated than ever. The "tip".' has passed down the lino, "Walt for word from Herrin." This -seems to have been responsible for all the confusion. : Apparently all that is. being done toward settling the senatorshlp is 'the swapping of views by the different aspirants.' The gen eral topic of discussion in , the hoUl lobbies and on the streets Is: "What will Ilerrln say about this or that can didate! ?", or "Whom does he want for the place?" . It was reported- today that Ifrulik Flint and Walter. Parker will go to San Francisco tomorrow to hold a con ference with Herrln. Hen'ry_T. Oxnard visited the metropolis', yesterday, but the nature of his, visit Is not known. Organization Candidates . Flint and \ Knight are termed "or ganization men", and this has led many to the belief that , the senatorial fight is between those two. However, there is ti strong sentiment 'against Knight in , both' tho' south and north and hi 3 candidacy Is not regarded in nny wise serious" by'ithuse'iiql identified with the machine. * •'. ■■> .''*• V ■,-'•'■. *' '■■..' going., about tooting, their- horn's and making > 'lot of. riojHf, : the Bard sup porters, are steadily gaining strength. "Tom"; Hughes, and ■ vBob" . Wade of Los Angeles arrived today, and after inquiring' into the situation they ex pressed; themselves as greatly pleased .with the outlook.' ■. A telegram was received, from Senator Bard, saying he will reach Sacramento from Washing ton Monday, to 'take, personal charge of his campaign. Tho Fisk boom was set back today, when it 1 was rumored that he had entered the fight as a Per kins candidate with the object of split ting the northern vote so that the toga will go south. Flak, ho'wsver. denies that he Is a compromise candidate. Senator Bard's stock went up several points' tonight when the news was friven out thai the senator had left Washington and "was now on his way to California. It was two days ago that the Bard managers telegraphed to the senator "that it would be absolutely necessary for him to be on 'the- ground when tho balloting begins. He replied that ha would not be able to leave his desk until the statehood and irrigation bills, in which ho is interested, had been seen through. A subsequent dis patch was reecived, telling of the de parture of Bard, and he is expected to arrive in a few days. • ■ ; Hopes also went up In the Bard head quarters when Thomus Hughes of Los Angeles arrived to assist in the incum bent's campaign. "It Is my firm belief that there will be a deadlock over the senatorial quesi tlon,"-sald Henry T, Oxnard tonight after he had returned from San Fran cisco, where he had gone to look after business interests and rest. Will Not Ask President* Aid In reply to a rumor that at the last moment George A. Knight might seek aid from President Roosevelt, tho for mer said : ' ' ■ "I intend to rely entirely on my own resources and could not place the presi dent In such a compromising position. As a, matter of fact I am gaining strength and' (irmly believe that this momentum will increase up to tho very time of my election." Quito a flurry wan caused when It was ' announced that I. W. Hellman had sent word from San Francisco that he la a candidate for the senutorshlp and that he will soon put In an appear ance to strengthen his claim. \ "The voting during the first few days on the senatorial question will not show anything," said Frank Flint tonight, "In my estimation It will bo some time before a decisive; vote will be reached." There Is considerable talk about the hotel lobbies tonight to the effect that a caucus will In all probability be held at the bay Bide city next Saturday night. John Mott."\V. Hi Booth and W. J.
