B. Miner, prominent clubman and broker, be lieved to be hurrying to Mexico, failed yesterday. If Miner, who Is alleged to have left a number of his friends and close business associates In the lurch to the extent of at least $40,000, started toward Mexico, It is probable he avoided San Diego. The police of that city searched for him and watched all trains. Mrs. Miner, wife of the missing broker, did not accompany her husband in his flight, as was Intimated in a morning newspaper. She was indig nant that such a report should have been circulated. She is at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Rogers, Twenty-eighth and Hope streets. Her husband's disappearance has caused her so much distress that she is on the verge of a nervous break down and her father would not permit her to discuss Miner's flight yesterday. "We don't know where he Is and" we have come to the conclusion that he will not be seen very soon," said Mr. Rogers. "Naturally, his disap pearance Is a sad blow to my daughter. She cannot speak of it without burst ing into tears, and I have decided that I will not permit her to submit to an Interview. She knew absolutely noth ing of his financial difficulties and no one could have been more surprised when the charges against him were made public." While it is stated that Miner got more than $40,000 on worthless paper, the only charge on record against him at police headquarters is that made by J. H. Blagge, also a broker. Blagge charges Miner passed a worthless check on him for $4100. It is on this charge that Miner is being sought.

CAUCUS DEFEATS PLANS FORCING PARTY PLEDGES Democratic Senators in Colorado Agree on Legislative Program DENVER, Aug. 16.—An initiative measure, which, it is asserted, is ultra conservative and will make but little change in existing conditions, was agreed on at a caucus of the Demo cratic senators early today. They met to agree on legislation to be enacted at the present session of the legisla ture. The measure will call for a pe tition to be signed by 15 per cent of the voters for governor at the last elec tion in two-thirds of the counties. The caucus resulted in a complete defeat of those who advocated the en actment of all of the party's pre-elec tion pledges, for which the extra ses sion was called by Governor Shafroth, and a victory for the Senator Hughes- Mayor Speer crowd will be advocated as a redemption of pledges on the most conservative basis. It is thought that there will be the same line-up of Democratic senators with respect to each of the other six measures to be considered, and that they will not be as vigorous as tho governor desired.
