EXTRA SESSION OF
COLORADO LEGISLATURE IS
SET FOR NEXT APRIL
Caret no* Shaftoth Will Demand a Prompt Fulfillment of
the Party Pledges; and the People of the State
Are to Hare a Voice
Denver, Sept. 15.—Governor Sh&f
roth has decided that he will call the
special session of the legislature
early in April to redeem the pledges
made by the Democratic party in its
platform. The governor will insist up
on the enactment of the direct pri
mary law, initiative and referendum,
guaranty law and an act pro
viding for the choice of United States
senators by a direct vote of the peo
ple.
When asked yesterday when he
would call the special session, Gover
nor Shafroth said:
“1 am convinced that early in April
Is the proper time because the laws
enacted will not become effective un
til ninety days after their passage.
“I want the legislature to be re
minded that a few months after the
special session is adjourned the peo
ple will be demanding how the party
pledges have been kept.
"I shall Insist most strongly on the
lews governing the primary, initiative
mnd referendum, bank guaranty and
direct election of United States sena
tor. I believe these laws will be pass

he will vote for the people’s choice

judge him according to his answer

a constitutional amendment for ratifi

WILL KNOWS RAILROAD
MAN DIED AT THE HOSPITAL
IN CRIPPLE CHEEK
E. J' Sweet, one o fthe pioneer rail
road men of this city,whose home was
at 1210 Main street, died at the Sis
ter’s hospital in Cripple Creek last
night following a surgical operation
which he underwent a few hours
earlier for cancer of the stomach. Mr.
Sweet was torakeman on the passen
ger run between Canon City and Crip
ple Creek and had been in the train
service of the Florence ft Cripple
Creek company since 1893, having
been on its payrolls longer than any
body else la its employ.
Everybody in the habit of riding on
the Florence ft Cripple Creak road
knew Sweet, who. day in and day out,
for more than fifteen years with hard
ly a trip off, covered the distance be
tween its terminals. According to his
friends Sweet was a brakeman on the
first train run over the Florence ft
Cripple Creek road after its comple
tion, a position he held until death
put an end to his services. So familiar
a figure was he that it is said that
there was hardly a man, woman or
child residing along the line of the
road that did not know him person
ally and had a nickname for him.
Sweet was seventy years of age and
had been in failing health for a long,
time. One day last week he was taken
with severe pains in the region of the
abdomen and conveyed to the Sister's
hospital in Cripple Creek where a sur
gical operation was decided upon as
the only possible means of prolonging
his life. Because of his age and un
fortunate physical condition he was
unable to withstand the shock to his
nervous system and he died shortly
afterwards without recovering con
sciousness. He leaves besides a sor
rowing wife, who was at his bedside
when he breathed his last, and two
daughters, one of whom resides in
Kansas City, and the other In Seattle.
The remains will be brought here
from Cripple Creek tomorrow, and.
later. Interred In lakeside cemetery.
The time when the funeral will lake
place has not been anrioirnced, but
will, probably, occur tomorrow after-*
noon, or Friday. In referring to the
deceased the Cripple Creek Times of
this morning says:
“Railroad men, with whom Mr.
Sweet had been associated in his work
for so many pears, will form a guard
of honor, when the body of the veter
an “knight of the rail” is taken to
Canon City for burial."
