Before a half hundred former resi dents of the Centennial state and sev eial Colorado delegates to the National Conservation congress, Hon. I. N. Stev ens, personal representative of Gov ernor Shafroth, presented a silver trophy to Governor Everhard of Min nesota at the state fair Friday. Gov ernor Everhard in turn gave the trophy to A. D.

Theodore Roosevelt at Chicago Thursday barred William Lorimer, junior United States senator from Illi nois, from the Hamilton club banquet at the Congress hotel by refusing to sit at the same table. The occurrence startled politicians here and over the state.

Gifford Pincbot received an ovation long and loud at the National Conser vation Congress at St. Paul Wednes day. The two sessions, addressed by Janies J. Hill, Senator Beveridge and Secretary of Agriculture Wilson, were well attended and enthusiastic. Mr. Hill let fall showers of epigrams at the expense cf the national govern ment and was applauded. Senator Beveridge waxed eloquent to quite a different purpose, but the crowd nois ily approved. The Press club which had Colonel Roosevelt In hand on his visit to Mil waukee got out the first and last edi tion of the “Big Stick," a newspaper devoted exclusively to Col. Roosevelt’s affairs. In it there was a letter by Mayor * explaining why he would not serve as a member of the committee to welcome Col. Roosevelt. He considered that something which the Colonel had written about Social ism was unkind and said that the Col onel could not expect him to welcome him. Col. Roosevelt replied that he would prefer to have them read what he had written rather than what the mayor said about what he had writ ten. WASHINGTON. Cholera has appeared in the Phil ippines, but it is said to be under con troL Orders have been flashed to the American consuls at many points to be alert in observation and disinfection. The guard at ports of entry in. the United States is being doubled. The public health and marine hospi tal service is clearing for action to pre vent the cholera now spreading through Russia and more recently dis covered in Germany and France, from being brought to this country. Offi cers of the service are far more alarmed at the probabilities of the plague being imported by immigrants than they are willing to admit.

This will per mit the agricultural entrymen, who have heretofore made filings upon lands classified or reported as contain ing coal to secure title to the surface ot their lands. President Taft has become con vinced that much unreserved public timber land in Colorado, Wyoming, Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Mon tana should be added to the forest re serves of these states, though it can not be done by presidential proclama tion under existing laws. President Taft In his St. Paul speech made answer to the resent agitation for a "new nationalism," or a federal centralization of power, by declaring that the only safe course to pursue was to hold fast to the limitations of the constitution and to regard as sacred the power of the states. Mr. Taft, amid applause, made frequent refer ences to the services of Theodore Roosevelt in the cause of conservation, but he declared that the time for rhap sodies and glittering generalities had passed. He suggested to the congress that it should invite its speakers to come down to details, to specific evils and to specific remedies. SPORT. WUSTBItX I.KACJlK. Won. Lost. Pet.

Doubling Power for Northern Colorado j Greeley.—ln order to accommodate the greatly increased electric current which will pass through the Greeley station when the big loop covering northern Colorado is completed, the Northerh Colorado Power company is doubling the capacity of Its local sub station. The main power plant is lo cated at Lafayette. Breckenridge Wants Train Service. Denver.—Delegations from Brecken ridge have been waiting upon Vice President A. D. Parker of the Colorado A Southern in efforts to ascertain the <4 \nces of their city for receiving a continuance of the train service which | has been for years and Is now being given by the Colorado & Southern rail road. | It is the intention of the railroad I company to discontinue the operation of trains over Boreas pass, the highest In the state, during the winter mouths, and so far the railroad company re mains unmoved from Its resolve. Breckenridge people, according to present plans, must go to Leadville and come to Denver over the Colorado Midland or the Denver & Rio Grande. Denver Northern Nearly Completed. Greeley.—The Denver northern line, the new one running west across the river from and passing through Dacono, Frederick and Fire stone in the midst of the valuable coal fields, will be completed by October 1. It is but four miles longer than the main track now used. This new line practically makes a double track from LaSalle to Denver. All Union Pacific trains going west from Denver have the right of way, so the through pas sengers and freights west-bound will probably be kept on the main track now In use, while the through trains east-bound, which do not stop between I.aSalle and Denver, will be diverted to the west track. U. P. Will Occupy Pullman Bhops. Denver.—Orders have been received at the Pullman shops to hasten the work of packing the machinery and supplies which are to be removed from this city to Richmond. Cal., where the western shops of the company will be located in the future. Efforts of the Chamber of Commerce and citizens of Denver to induce the company to continue to maintain its shops in this city have proved futile, apparently, although pressure will be brought to bear upon the Pullman peo ple to have some sort of representa tive establishment In this city. The Union Pacific Railroad company will occupy the chops abandoned by the Pullman company, which are ownea by the former, with a force of men equally large. The railroad company has for two years needed Its shops, and will bring a big crew of men here to keep Its rolling stock and motive power in shape to handle its constant ly increasing business. C. A 8. and C. B. A Q. Joined. Greeley.—The connecting of the Colorado & Southern tracks here with the new line of the Burlington, recent ly completed through Greeley, marked the beginning of activity which will continue In Burlington building until Greeley Is in the main line from Cheyenne via Hudson to Denver. Within a few days the Burlington Is to begin constructing its line from Greeley through Hudson, the five miles between Timnath and Plunder will be built and a long contemplated line from Wellington north to Chey enne, twenty-five miles, will be start ed. This means the building of about fifty miles of railway and a big force will hurry Its completion. The D., L. & N. W. company has strated its extension from Greeley northwest to Severance. Branch lines of the Union Pacific costing $1,000,000 are completed in the country north and northeast of here and extension of these lines is contem plated at an early date. Vincent’s Prominent Backers. A message has been received from Joseph L. Bristow of Kansas that he will stump the state for Merle D. Vin cent, candidate for’ governor of Colo rado. Senator Bristow is one of the dyed-in-the-wool insurgents of the country. It is claimed that word has also been received by Mr. Vincent that Francis J. Heney of San Francisco, the prosecutor who got after the grafters In the San Francisco municipal gov ernment, will take the stump for him. Richest Men in Colorado. Colorado Springs.—J. R. McKinnle and R. P. Davie of this city are owners of the greatest oil well In the world and the richest men in this state, ac cording to opinions expressed by Standard Oil Company experts who have examined the big well of the Consolidated Company near Bakers field, Cal. Repeated testß by experts indicate that it is under perfect control and has a capacity of 3,000 barrels of oil an hour. This, it 50 cents a barrel, will produce a net revenue of between $13,000,000 and $15,000,000 annually. COLORADO LEGISLATIVE DOINGS Judge Lewis’ Criticism. In his order forbidding the Issue of bonds If so voted, Judge Lewis pays his respects to the recent action of the Legislature as follows: “By that constitution they gave to Congress the sole power of legislation. By the constitutions of the several states they gave to their House of Rep resentatives and their Senate the sole and exclusive power of legislation. They said on all of those constitutions that they were the supreme law of the land, the supreme law of the state. No man has a right to complain if the people in lawful ways abolish those constitutions and take back to them selves, by establishing a pure democ racy—not a constitutional democracy which now exists—the exclusive pow er of legislation and all the powers of the governmenL "But the alarming situation is that men who understand all of these prin ciples of government, will acquiesce In overriding the constitution, not In abol ishing it, not first setting it aside and taking back to themselves these pow ers but while those constitutions are in force, which they have said are the supreme law of tho land and which they bind the courts by solemn oath to enforce, they seek to override con stantly. So we have, here in Colorado, or will have shortly, in defiance of your constitution, by which you said: ‘The sole power of legislation shall be vested in a Senate and House of Rep resentatives,’ a legislative act which will so far curtail that power that nothing but the shadow of It Is left with those bodies, and in the fact of it, and in the face of your supreme law by which you said the Senate and House of Representatives should have that power, you, it seems to me, say, ‘We have it.’ I say I view these mat ters wun alarm, because It is a rev olution against which I have no right roninlain, but an unlawful revolu tion until those constitutions are abolished or changed and modified.” Bombshell from Helblg. The House of Representatives, hav ing passed the headless ballot bill on second reading Thursday, Indulged In a discussion in the committee of the whole of the anti-pass bill of Repre sentative Helblg of Denver, with the result that there is more excitement in that body than has been seen since the session opened. There are a great many members op posed to the anti-pass bill. Conse quently, when Helblg replied to a mo tion to strike the enacting clause by saying that he would challenge the vote of every member against the measure who carried an annual rail road pass In his pocket, he threw a bombshell Into the assembly. Helblg announced that he would make his challenges on Section 43 of Article V, of the state constitution, which provides that no member Inter ested In any measure before the Legis lature shall vote upon that measure. Every member carrying a pass, he said, came under this provision, and a number of them have admitted during debate that they carry annuals. Even Barela Votaa Favorably. It was well known that two or three of the Republicans would not vote for the Initiative and referendum bill and In this list Barela’s name had led all the resL Naturally, the Senate was startled to hear him an nounce that he would vote for the measure. “I will do so,” he said, “because I am willing that it should be submitted to the people. I don’t believe In the principle, but I am ready to let the people vote on the constitutional amendment, and I promise that In my district there will be a big majority against 1L” By attaching the emergency clause to the initiative and referendum bill, the Senate made It possible to submit the constitutional amendment to the people at the approaching election, so that two years hence the people can initiate and refer the measures they demand. Included in the bill is a pro vision which will give all cities and towns the right to the Initiative and referendum In their local affairs, as soon as the people adopt the amend ment at the polls. The bill, therefore, establishes the people’s rule not only in state-wide affairs but in the affairs of the political units within the state. When Gov. Shafroth heard the news he immediately sat down and penned a letter to W’illiam Jennings Bryan, telling all about the famous fight and victory. The governor felt that the passage of the bill was an all-sufficient vindication of the extra session. “This victory alone pays ten times over the cost of the extra session thuß far," he said. The platform Democrats and the progressive Republicans are still con fident of ultimate victory, and are working like beavers. Notes. The Republican senators who voteJ for initiative and referendum have not evidenced any desire to Join the dis contented among the machine men who fear that a primary bill will be the next move. And without them the Senate will not adjourn. Platform Democrats are hopeful of a direct primary law without the con vention feature and are urging that the Democratic caucus take it up next. If not the primary, the bank bill will come up. The movement for an adjournment this week has not gained headway. From every indication, however, the Legislature will be In session until after the state convention is held. The House adjourned last Saturday until Tuesday morning, and only a short session Monday morning was held by the senators. As Labor day, Is is a legal holiday. Senators Thomas J. McCue and John Tobin did not take up the rail road bill, which was left to them for amending, but reported it to the Demo cratic caucus Sunday.

Mann years ago. In consequence of a commercial panic, there was a severe run on a bank In South Wales, and the small farmers Jostled each other In crowds to draw out their money. Things were rapidly going from bad to worse, when tho bank manager, in a fit of desperation, suddenly be thought him of an expedient. By his directions a clerk, having heated some sovereigns In a frying-pan, paid thorn over the counter to an anxious appli canL “Why. they’re quite hot!” said the latter as he took them up. “Of course.” was the reply: "what else could you expect?
