ment, Colorado National guard, have
ben relieved from further duty In con
nection with the coal strike, and re
turned to Denver.

Denver. —At the recent meeting of

Christ and into the church; a cam
paign for state-wide prohibition, in
which all the organizations and Chris
tian forces of the Btate are this year
uniting; a campaign to set up the Col
orado plan of high school Bible study
in chief high school towns in Septem
ber, next; a campaign to push the
splendid opportunity offered by a com
munity training school for Sunday
school workers into all the chief cen

cess of these four propositions the
state hoard are now asking all Chris
tian people of the state to unite in a
Day of Prayer on Thursday, March

system on the star routes in western

ed by the government. The Uintah
railway, which runs from Mack, Colo.,
to Vernal, Utah, over what is said to
be the steepest road in the United
States, is balking on its contract

STATE CAPITAL

DENVER WILL BE RADIUM HUB.
Congressman Evans Forecasts Con
struction of Big Radium Plant.
Denver.—“ Representative Dr. Mar
tin D. Foster’s House radium bill has
the support of the entire mines and
mining committee in Congress and I
believe it will pass the lower house
with little or no opposition," declared
Congressman John M. Evans of Mon
tana in a short address to the mem
bers of the mines and mining commit
tee of the Denver Chamber of Com
merce at a luncheon.
"The impression in Colorado is that
there is a disposition in Congress to
withdraw all radium lands, but such is
not the case.
“We want Alaska, Colorado and oth
er undeveloped territories unlocked.
Dr. Foster’s bill does not provide that
radium-bearing ore lands shall be
withdrawn."
Representative Evans said that the
development of radium mining in Colo
rado would mean the building of a big
radium reduction plant in Denver
which would be erected by the govern
ment. This would be the producing
point of the greater part of the world’s
output, he said.
Dr. Foster also made a short address
at the previous day’s meeting. He
apologized to the mining interests of
Colorado, for his committee, for not
giving Colorado and the West more at
tention in Congress.
Congressman Richard W. Austin of
Tennessee, regarding the withdrawal
of resources from public entry, said:
“I am opposed to locking up the re
sources of this country. Such steps I
believe to be vicious.”
Congressman Howard Sutherland of
West Virgina declared that "matters
affecting the resources of the West
would be given serious consideration
and without prejudice.”
Congressman James F. Byrnes of
South Carolina pledged his support to
the mining needs of Colorado.
State Land Board Sells 7,160 Acres.
Denver.—At the monthly public auc
tion by the State Land Board, 7,159.71

amounted to $64,367, of which 10 per
cent was turned into the treasury at
the close of the sale. Other payments
will be distributed over a period of
eighteen years, making the purchase
of land easy and within reach of all
homesteaders. Most of the lana sold
lies in Moffat, Routt and Grand coun

would ask for a writ of prohibition

TEST OF MANHOOD
FOR IMMIGRANTS
PHYSICAL EXAMINATION LIKE
THAT OF ARMY URGED BY
CAMINETTI.
AGAINST‘PHOTO’BRIDES
"MARRIAGE BY PROXY" SHOULD
NOT OPEN U. S. TO WOMEN,
SAYS COMMISSIONER.
r
Western Newspaper Union News Service.
Washington.—‘‘Manhood should be
the test applied to aliens seeking ad
mission to the United States," de
clares Immigration Commissioner
Caminetti in his first annual report.
"Such a test,” asserts Caminetti,
"would constitute the ideal way of
sifting immigration so as to admit
none except desirable aliens. As a rule,
aliens must earn their livelihood by
manual labor. The adoption of a phys
ical test similar to that which recruits
for the army undergo would insure a
suitable standard.”
As to Japanese immigration Cami
netti expresses doubt as to whether
the “photograph” brides, after having
gone through a marriage ceremony by
proxy, recognized as legal in Japan,
are really entitled to admission. He
says he does not believe “any such
marriage is binding upon the United
States in the administration of immi
gration laws,” and also that there is
no treaty with Japan or other arrange
ment whatsoever that provides for the
recognition by the United States of
the so-called marriage of a woman in-
Japan with a man who may be in the
United States at the alleged date of
the same.
Wilson to Veto Literacy Test.
President Wilson will veto the Bur
nett immigration hill, if it comes to
him for his signature with the so
called literacy test contained in it.
This became known from an authorita
tive source after Chairman Smith of
the Senate immigration committee had
announced that the bill, virtually ss it
passed the House, including the liter
acy test, would he favorably reported
to the Senate soon.

suit for $50,000 filed against him by-

ington hotel.
Senator Gore testified in his own
behalf. He denied making an attack
on Mrs. Bond and said he believed
tho charge was made to injure him in
his campaign for renomination as the
Democratic candidate for the Senate.
Senator Gore was asked about his
acquaintance with Mrs. Bond, the
plaintiff, and replied that he remem
bered meeting her at a reception here

internal revenue collector was men
tioned at the time. He said he had
not giyen her any encouragement
about her husband’s candidacy.

Washington, the senator, in reply to
questions, told of meeting Mrs. Bond
at her hotel after she had telephoned
him making the appointment. He

cobs, T. E. Robertson and others were
at the hotel at the time.

Reed, wealthy Vineland ranchman,

man of the Dellburn rahch at Vine
land, was knocked unconscious by a

beaten and kicked.

hands and knees across the prairie

he had been struck. He never caught
a glimpse of his assailants. He made
