Declares if Elected He Will Call Snecial Session of Congress. LAYS STRESS ON HUMAN WELFARE Tucson, ArizL, Sept. IT. If Col. Roosevelt- Is elected president, he said In a speech here today, he will call a special session of congress immediately 'after his inauguration to put into effect so far as can be done by congress, the Progressive party's program for social and industrial legislation. The program includes a minimum wage scale for women, a "living wage," prohibition of child labor-regulation of hours of labor and other measures. While there are Important planks in the platform of the Progressive party," he said, "I am most Interested in the plank lealing with human welfare. I believe that the Issues there raised are the great issues of this campaign, which neither of the old parties Is facing squarely. The Progressive party, if it is DUt Into power, will carry out every j promise which It has made in its plat form, wev regard tne piatiorm as a contract with the people a .contract to I be kept to the letter. If I am elected president, I shall call a special session of congress immedi ately to take up these matters. It Is, of course, true that the r'eforms for which we call are largely subjects which must be dealt with by the legis latures of the various states, but there are certain matters which we can and will take up in congress, if the-oppor- i tunity is given us. i. wouia nave congress taite up three things: "First, is the application of our pro gram to employes of the government. Next is Its application to the District of Columbia and Alaska. In the third place,' we would apply it to interstate commerce as far as would be possible." CoL Roosevelt said It was difficult to define the lengths to which congress could go in dealing -with concerns en gaged in interstate commerce through congressional action. He would attempt to put on the statute books, he said, as much legislation along these lines as could be applied to the railroads and the usual concerns doing ah Interstate business. BRYAN ADVOCATES THE SINGLE TERM Declares Roosevelt Id An Eleventh Hour Convert .to Progressive Prin. rlples Taft Distrusted People. Denver. Colo., Sept. 17. One term for presidents and the necessity of select ing "Woodrow- "Wilson for that office in November was the central thought 'of campaign addresses delivered by Wm. J. Bryan In his tour of northern Colo rado towns. At Fort Collins he em phasized this point and scored Theo dore Roosevelt for asking a third term. I Roosevelt Is an eleventh hour convert j to progressive principles." declared Mr. Bryan, "and should not be trusted un til he has proved his sincerity." He said that Roosevelt never had fought the people's battles but had opposed the progressives, both Repub lican and Demicratic, in congress. He charged that Roosevelt's campaign Is being financed by the trusts. "Mr. Taft distrusted the people and is dead politically." was Mr. Bryan's characterization of the president whom he charged with having failed utterly to reduce the tariff in keeping with campaign pledges. Mr. Bryan made his first speech of the day at Greeley. Other stops were made at Windsor, Fort Collins. Ber thoud, lioveland, Longmont, Boulder and Colorado Springs. At Colorado Springs Bryan devoted his attention mainly to Theodore Roosevelt "Mr. Roosevelt never received an honor he did not receive at the hands of Wall street" he said. "Wall street made him vice president and by acci dent of fate he became president Wall street made him president the second time and Wall street men, like Perkins and Morgan are on their prayer bones invoking aid for Col. Roosevelt LaFolIette is a thousand times greater progressive than Roosevelt He was battling for the masses when Roosevelt was writing letters stating that he would take no part In the con flict between Mr. LaFolIette and Mr. Taft" COMMITTEE SEEKS MOKK ROOSEVELT CORIIESI'OXDESCE "Washington, D.

Charging CoL Pascual Orozco. 3r., with having committed murder in Juarez last June, a request for his ex tradition to Mexico was filed by the lo cal Mexican consul before United States commissioner George B. Oliver Monday evening. The paper filed hy the consul did not state who CoL Orozco is charged with having murdered, but it is said to be the Maderista spies vho were reported to have been exe-?uted in Juarez at the time whf-n CoL Pas cual Orozco was military commander of the town. At present Col. Orozco Is in the cus tody of the United States officers, hav ing been arrested by United States sol diers on the American side jf tha river as he crossed from Ojinaga a few days ago. He will be brought to El Taco Friday morning. Both United States and Mjxican of ficials here continue denial of persist ent rumors that the younger Orozco is held among the prisoners at Presidio. Warrant for the General. A warrant has been sworn out by chargintr him "with murder, in connec- ! tlon. the consul says, with the killing of Tom Fountain, an American, at Par ral and also with other murders com ia ttod during tlu- r.--. ciutlon. The Mexican consul says that while there is a possibility that the Pablo Garcia Orozco, who Is being held with CoL Pascual Orozco, sr., at Presidio. may be Pascual Orozco, jr., he Is doubtful, for he has his agents at Presidio and things they would have identified young O. ozco if he was a prisoner. SAYS OROZCO WILL STAY TILL DEATH Wife Declarer That He AVHI Never De sert His Men in the Fight and Is iVot on This Side of Line. Los Angeles, CaL, Sept 17.

Pascual Orozco, sr., who was captured by the United States troops on the American side of the border, has taken to her bed, exhausted by worry over the fate of the colonel. She said today that while she was glad her husband had f?"en into the hands of Americans, she was in doubt as to his ultimate fate, because Mexican federals would certainly kill him If he were turned over to his fellow countrymen. Mrs. Pascual Orozco. jr., declared that she did not believe her husband was among the lnsurrecto officers held by United States authorities. "Though it mean death," she said, "my husband, I know, will remain witn his men, where he is most needed." STOCK DRIVEN ACROSS LINE I1V REBELS IS SEIZED. Alpine, Tex., Sept 17.

SAYS SITUATION IS WELL IN HAND Douglas, Ariz., Sept 17. El- Tigre was evacuated by the rebels and re occupled at :30 yesterday afternoon by a hundred federals, according to a phone message received by J. W. Mal colmson. The message stated that the rebels carried away bullion valued at $20,000. The rebels left over the hills to the east, and the federals then marched in. To Punish Coward. The Mexican federal officer who was responsible for holding reinforcements for El Tigre In the vicinity of that place while the rebels under Salazar were attacking the town, will be shot for cowardice, according to Gen. Augus tin Sanjines, commanding the federal forces in Sonora. The general made an emphatic statement to this effect when informed today that the troops sent from Nacozari to the relief of El Tigre had arrived in sufficient time to have prevented the capture of the town but did not do so. He is now investigating in order to fix the blame. "As soon as I find out who was responsible, he will be exe cuted." said the general. Federals -Olnde Xo Effort. The intended reinforcements arrived within 10 miles of El Tigre nine hours before the capture of the town and, while the fighting was in progress, swung off in a different direction and went into camp within sound of the firing. . . Officials of El Tigre company here received word that a mere .showing of themselves by the federals would have resulted In the withdrawal of the rebels from the attack on the town. Consulting engineer J. w. Malcomson today authorized the offer of a reward of $5000 for the recovery of the 21 bars of bullion taken from El Tigre by Safezar yesterday when he left. It was believed that an attempt would be made to smuggle It across the line. "Sonora Pacified." Even though the Mexican govern ment should grant permission to the United States to cross American troops to the other side of the International line Tor the purpose of protecting Americans In Mexico, a revolution much more serious than the present one would be the result. This was the opinion expressed by Gen. Augustin Sanjines, commanding the federal forces In Sonora. who spent several -hours In Douglas .today. Such a plan has been discussed here. Such an act" would be. bitterly, resented by the great mass of the Mexican people, said the general,' ahd there would be safety In Mexico for neither those allowing such extreme measures and their supporters nor fpr Americans.

I have ordered rein forcements to Nacozari. but I do not believe there will- be an attack on that place. It Is too well protected now and the rebels are not well organized." Gen. Sanjines said that the effect of the capture of Gen. Orozco would be important to the personal followers of the rebel leaders but It might have no effect In ending the revolution be cause most of the rebels were not fighting for a cause. .iriiriwirur For :No Cause."

Asked as to the next probable move by the rebels operating south of here. Gen. Sanjines expressed the opinion that they would return to the vicinity of the border. This would be more than likely the plan of Salazar's rebels, as that leader Is probably de slrlous of converting the bullion he confiscated at El Tigre Into real money. The general declined to discuss his plans for ridding Sonora of the rebel bands. FLAGPOLE EAGLE GETS NEW FEATHERS Daring Steeplejack Climbs San Ja cinto Flagstaff, Fixes the Rope and Paints the Pole.

This raised a feeling to fever heat and the members were on the point of coming to blows when count Andrassa and other leaders In tervened and separated the deputies who had threatened each other.
