The reporters to whom he talked
before going to the club, Mr. Har
riman declared he was opposed to the
Hepburn bill or any railroad regula
tion, unless it carried with it provis
ions for publicity and regulation and
protection for the railroads.
"The Hepburn act in itself would
not be harmful had it been coupled
with Borne legislation for protection,
as well as regulation," said Mr. Harrl
man, "this I stated to the president
as far back as 1905. I also wrote
to Mr. Taft about that same year. I
said then that I favored regulation
and publicity if coupled with pro
tection so as to permit the movement
of traffic along the line of least re
sistance and least cost. This can only
be accomplished by co-operation be
tween the railroads and the govern
ment. Unless the government is will
ing to grant one, It taouli^iot en
force the other."
As to Freight Rates.
Preceeding his departure from Chi
cago for the west tonight E. H. Har
rlman talked briefly of the probability
of a general increase in freight rates
in the United States.
"The American people aught to be
willing to pay the railroads a proper
compensation for a proper transpor
tation service," he said, "such as we
are now performing, bpt for it we are
not receiving an adequate return.

Made to Business Enterprises.
On Wednesday, August 5th, the Han
sen Townsite was successfully launch
ed. There was no bottle of wine to
break over the bows of the craft as
she slid quietly into the municipal cur
rent, for nothing stronger than good
coffee and a straight brand of lemon
ade was to be found In the locker. No
particular ceremonies attended the
event, which satisfied a long felt want
on the part of the thrifty and pros
perous community In that section of
the country. Mr. S. T. Hamilton made
a short statement of the work of the
town site company upto date and for
the future promised, on behalf of the
company, co-operation on a fair busi
ness basis, with every man and every
influence for the best development of
Hansen. . .
The sale of lots was conducted un
der a system of numbers by which
those first drawn were entitled to first
choice from a marked town plat. Miss
Bertha Crater was chosen to draw
numbers from the box. By this
method all were satisfied and in the
course of an hour twenty-five lots
were selected. This is a very good
beginning as already there is estab
lished and In operation upon the town

and a blacksmith shop. Mr. Dixon

a practical brick maker of much ex
perience and a good article Is as
sured from his kiln.

lots is said to be lower than in any
of the towns on the Twin Falls tract,
and under the policy of the company,

The townsite Is a beautiful one and
the trees set out last year along all

Two blocks have been set apart for

streets have been graded and public

struction of a large filtered cistern.
In this has been In stalled a "town

as the growth of the town will justify

GALLIHER GETS MONEY BACK
Twin Falls Man Aided by tlie Denver
"I was told that the man I was bet
ting on was the best wrestler ln», the
United States and that nobody could
throw him," said JameB Galliher, liv
eryman, of Twin Falls, Idaho, this
morning, as he started to tell how he
had lost $5000 in cash at an old game.
"When I came to Denver I had a
draft for $5000. They told me that
sports only bet cash money, and so
I cashed the draft. I couldn't tell
you where the match was pulled off.
but my man lost, I think I could find
the place if I looked about town
for a while."
Galliher admits that he was under
the impression that he had a sure
thing when he arrived In Denver with
his roll of money.
John Kern, aged 30- years, and
George McLaughlin, Si years, are un
der arrest. McLaughlin had In Kla
pockets cash to the amount of $1436
and a certified check rot $6500.- His
partner had $1270.
The wresting match was held yes

Kern appeared in Twin Falls, Idaho,
and made it their business to become
acquainted with Galliher, a prosper
ous liveryman. He showed no par
ticular Interest when lie was informed
that McLaughlin had a reputation as
a wrestler. Galliher says that a soda
manufacturer named Benoit of Twin
Falls is an old friend of McLaughlin,
and vouched for him as being a cham
pion wrestler as well.
They unfolded to Galliher a scheme
whereby they could enrich him $5000.
They explained that some Pittsburg
capitalists, including Millionaire
Frick, had a wrestler, named McCor
mick in Denver, whom they would
back with any amount of money. Mc
Laughlin declared that it would be
easy picking for him to defeat Mc
Cormick. They finally managed to

The prisoners assured Chief Arm

efforts to win, had burst a blood ves
sel in his throat.

from McLaughlin bears the signature
of Assistant Cashier McLaughlin of
the Capitol National Bank, and the
police say it is genuine.—Denver Post.
The true version of the wonderful
fairy tale in the Post Is shorter and
somewhat less sensational.
Galliher left this city a short time ago
for Casper, Wyoming, for the purpose
of buying cattle. Owing to a more at
tractive proposition coming up, not
all of his money was expended and
in company with a man by the name
of Brown, Mr. Galliher went to Den
ver, and did venture $500 on the fake
wrestling contest, while his compan
ion staked a like sum. When the
affair was discovered to be a fake
the men went to the police and enter

with the result that the $1000 was re
turned. Mr. Galliher returned home
Sunday from his trip and was much
surprised to see the account of his
