(Jour iul Special Berries.)
Denver, Col., Dec. 14. Leonard Rog
ers, a well-known 'Democratic leader,
Police Captain Lee and four other Dem
ocratic ejection officers of precinct 2,
ward 7, were placed on trial in the su
preme court today, charged with fraud
in the recent election, .
The growing belief la that the court
will throw oat enough wards In Denver
to wipe out Adams' plurality of (,000
and aeat Pea body.
At noon the court decided to throw
out allthe votes In precinct I, ward 7.
This establishes a precedent, which
probably means the seating of Peabody,
as this Is one of the precincts In which
fraud was proved. Many other pre
clnct are to be scrutinized.
EVIDENCE AGAINST NAN
PATTERSON IS DAMAGING
Both sides in the Portland club con
test are working diligently during the
lull which has been -granted by the con
tinuance of the habeas corpus proceed
ings until next Monday. Henry K. .Mc
Ginn, who represents the sheriff's office.
Is preparing his reply to the return
filed yesterday by Coroner Finley. Spen
cer and Mendenhall. attorneys for the
Portland club, are working just as hard
to rebut any favorable arguments which
Mr. McGinn may produce.
Coroner Finley Is remaining absolute
ly neutral. He Is asking neither party
for advice. He employs his own attor
ney, Arthur 8. Spencer, who drew the
return to the writ In which Mr. Finley
denied that he had the bodies of Deputy
Sheriffs Morden. Holllngsworth, Cor
dano and Wise In custody, and there
fore could not produce them In court.
But the deputy sheriffs, although
legally restrained of their liberty as
the writ of habeas corpus alleges, are
still able to take care of themselves
and look after the Portland club build
ing st the same time. They retain pos
session of the building, and Deputy
Sheriff Wise la guarding It with a
double-barrelled shotgun and 15 shells
loaded with heavy buckshot Some
times one of the proprietors passes in
front of the building and looks longingly
at the door, but he does not enter.
' The damage suits filed by William
Gorman against Deputy Sheriffs Morden,
Holllngsworth and Cordano for 1210
damages from each for assault and bat
tery are pending In the justice court.
"The reason we brought these Hulls
In the Justice court," said Kdward Men
denhall, one of the attorneys for 1 Gor
man, "was to get speedy action while
the plaintiff still carries the marks of
violence. If we brought them In the
circuit court there would doubtless be
so many dilatory pleas filed that we
could not get the cases to trial for
months. And then we do not believe
that any one of the defendants would
be able to reapond In damages to any
amount greater than 1260."

Naturalists cannot fall to be surprised
at the weight of some of the deer
caught in Vermont woods this season.
These scientific gentlemen have been
laboring under the Impression that about
MS pounds was the maximum weight
of any deer ever found in this section
of the country.
As a matter of fact, many deer have
been found shot in Vermont that weigh
more than 225 pounds. Here in Wind
ham county thla season on specimen
weighed over 100 pounds, two others
at leaat close to that figure, and nearly
all the bucks brought In wr In the
200 class or over. The Vermont deer
are In a class by themselves, and in ais
and In proportions are far ahead of the
deer found in Maine and the Adiron
dack, and their meat Is of a better
quality. Old hunters account for the
difference In the fact that the deer In
Vermont have better feed than thoae In
the more closely wooded sections. They
are not limited to browse on hemlock
twigs, but find an abundance of nutri
tious grasses, and. If reports from
Wlndaor county are correct, they occa
sionally top off with apples, turnips,
corn and beana.

The Clergyman's Xobby Mors.
Visitors to a quaint little church in
England observe a curious relic in the
ahape of a high stool with a leather top
like a aaddle. The pariah clerk shows
not a little pride in this relic and tails
Its story with relish. During the seven
teenth and eighteenth centuries the coun
try parsons were accustomed to spend
much of their time hunting with their
country squires. Oftentimes the fox got
more attention than the sermon on the
following Sunday. Such was the case
with the parson who left the saddle stool
behind him aa a relic of the days of fox
hunting parsons. He was a good deal
more at home in the saddle than In the
pulpit, so in order to Introduce some of
the life and spirit into his discourses
which he felt while in th hunt
ing field, the reverend gentleman had
this saddle stool made. It was placed In
the pulpit before the parson mounted th
step. One astride this hobby the par
son was able to reach a much higher de
gree of enthusiasm and eloquence than
he could have unmounted.
