8peech of Newly Elected Senator from
Colorado Declare He Will Make
Mot of Office For Correction
of Industrial Abuses.
DENVER, Jan. 16. Simon Guggen
heim, after his election as United
States senator had occurred today, ad
dressed the legislature as follows :
Sincerely do I thank you for the
have reposed In me In electing me i
the highest office In the gift of the
great honor and for the confidence you
state. I appreciate my responsibilities
and in order to give my entire time to
the people of our nation and state dur
ing the sessions of Congress and also
during the recess, I have withdrawn
from all active business.
By devoting constant time and at
tention to the duties of my high office
much should be accomplished for our
nation and state.
It has always been my ambition to
be one of the states builders realizing
that we are a young state extensive in
area, rich in resources, and capable of
supporting a much larger population.
Great is the opportunity of increas
ing the population of attracting toj
Colorado the needed capital and labor i
for our developement, that in time our .
commonwealth may become one of U e j
most important states of our glorious I
Gladly do I give up a commercial
career for the purpose of assuming thi'
responsibilities of Senatorship and of
devoting myself entirely to the obli- j
gations to no interests, company rail- j
road or corporation.
I favor all legislation adopted by j
Congress to correct Industrial iviU
and abuses, and will support and sug
gest further measures that experience
of vision may demand as necewy.
Any one occupying a public position
must expect to be the target or criti
cism. Just criticism is beneficial; ma
laclous misrepresentation digs its own
When I reached my majority I came
to Colorado. I rejoice that the friends
that I made during the early days are
still my friends.
I hope to Include In the bond of
friendship all the people of the state.
CEASE HUNT FOR GOLD.
Search for Treasure Trove Delayed for
MEXICO CITY, Jan. 16. According
to a dispatch to the Herald from
Guadalajara, hope of securing treasure
burled in the hulk of the steamer
Golden Gate, Is at an end for at least
a yeur. The 250 foot pier built from
the beach to the wreck of the vessel,
a centrifugal pump and other equip
ment built by the persons who under
took to regain the treasure, have been
swept into the Pacific Ocean. The
loss of the pier and the machinery was
due to the storm that raged along the
entire Paclllc coast of Mexico Uust
B. F. Richardson of Philadelphia, J.
E. Phillips of Denver, and & F. Phil
Hps, of Danville, III., were Interested
In the expedition. The Golden Gate
was beached on the coast of Collma in

Will Test Efficiency of Freight Car
NEW YORK, Jan. 16. Local officials
of the American Railway Association
said yesterday that the reports from
Chicago that many of the large rail
way systems of the country had agreed
to a pooling arrangement for all their
freight cars was premature.
What Is In contemplation, it Is said,
was the establishment of a freight car
clearing house with the object of In
creasing the efficiency of car servlci
primarily by a more satisfactory dis
tribution of freight cars to relieve thj
costly freight congestion.
The railroad entering Chicago hav
already consented to the establish
ment of an experimental clearing hour1
of this kind, but a movement is now
under way to extond the adoption of
this system beyond the Chicago terri
tory to which It was Intended originally.

AUSTIN, Tex., Jan. 16. Governor
T. M, Campbell Inauguarated in office
yesterday sent his first message to the
Legislature today giving much of the
Introductory part to the eulogy of the
Democratic platform demands and urg
ing the members that they should en
act the same Into laws. Among these
demands are anti-free passes, anti-ne

NEW YORK, Jan. 16. The effort to
preserve the premises at 28 East
Twentieth street, the birthplace of
President Roosevelt, has apparently
been abandoned for the present. Two
floors of the building which have been
occupied by the Roosevelt Home Club,
an organization formed to further the
movement, were leased yesterday for

Mr. August Sherpe, the popular ov

SPOKANE ALLEGED FAVORED
Seattle, Portland and Tacoma Are Die
criminated Against by Railroads
Water Competition Is De
clared to bt a Factor.
SPOKANE. Jan. 16. Through sev
oral answers made to tho sharp In
quiries of Commissioner Prouty ttt to
day's hearing of the Spokane rule
case, it was revealed that tht attor
neys for the const cities will not de
pend on the argument of water coin
petition alone, but will maintain that
Seattle, Portland and Tacoma suffer
from discrimination In favor of Spo
kane. J, N. Teal, for tho Portland
Chamber of Commerce, Insisted that he
desired to give notice that Portland's
petition for Intervention would be ho
amended as to meet the new argu
ments of Spokane, for which, he said,
the defendants had not boon prepurod.
Commissioner Prouty said lit; under
stands that the justification for the
terminal rate exists wholly on the ba
sis of water competition, and were not
this so, tho coast cities would not be
Justified In having lower rates than
Spokane. Prouty said the commissi, hi
had decided that water competition
was a factor, whatever bearing it may
have on the case. The commissioner
wanted to know If the complainants
sustain the contention that Ihe rail
roads are making too much money, and
what Interest the coast people had In
opposing lower rates for Spokane. Teal
replied that the coast cities cannot be
deprived of their rules fixed by wa
Prouty responded by saying It did
no good to put In evidence of water
competition, as that was conceded. The
discussion then followed whether wa
ter competition was conceded by Spo
kane and no agreement was reached on
this subject. Mr. Mann of San Fran
cisco called H. E. D. Jackson to the
stand. Spokane representatives ob
jected to his testimony, because he
was able to testify only concerning
water transportation. The commission,
however, decided Jackson's testimony
should be heard.
II. M. Adams, assistant traffic mana
ger of the Great Northern at Seattle,
while under cross examination, admit
ted that the railroads bad followed up
the commencement of the present
case before the Interstate Commerce
Commission by giving a new rate to
coast points to enable them to heal
the rate given to Spokane merchants
to the Idaho line. Commissioner
Prouty, apparently In some amaze
ment, reiterated the question to Adams
whether the rate had been put Into
effect after the suit had been begun,
and Adams admitted that It had.
Hy Commissioner Lane: "This new
rate prohibits shipments from Spokane?"
