PROPRIETOR OF THE,
Denver Elects a Democratic Mayor for
, the First Time in Years Chicago .
Mayoralty in Doubt.
Senator Edmunds of Vermont Tenders
His' Resignation A Better Price
for Wheat is Predicted.
Denver, Col., April 8. Denver .today
has a democratic mayor for the first
time in her history.
Leadville Col., elected a republican
mayor and aldermen, while Trinadad
gave everything to the democrats.
. Returns from various points in the
state show something of a democratic
land slide. -
. An Uncertainty as to who la Mayor.
Chicago, April 8. Comptroller Ona
han said to an associated press reporter:
"At this hour, 11 : 30, it is believed that
Creiger is elected but it . will evidently
take the official returns to determine
conclusively." The city press associa
tion says Hem pa ted Washburn is elected
by 1100 plurality with seven precincts
still to bear from.
Colonel Nye, chairman of the republi
can campaign committee, went before
the election commissioner this morning
and requested that two members of his
commission be permitted to temain on
guard over the vault in which the re
turns and documents were to be pre
served, night and day, until ' the official
canvass has taken place. "My reason
for asking this," he said,' "is amply
sufficient. I have been informed upon
unquestionable authority that Mayor
. Creiger has - declared that no circum
stance can remove him from ' office for
two years." .
At 1:40 p. -m4, comptroller Onahan
said his figures made late last night were
gone over' today . by other persons and
that the result was unchanged, giving
the victory to Cregier by 235 votes. . -

GOOD NEWS FOR FARMERS.
A Grain Merchant Bays Fricea of Wheat
San Francisco, ' A. C. Paulsell, a
prominent grain merchant, was inter
viewed by the Evening Post regarding the
report of promised shortage in European
wheat crops, said: " "This would im
prove the prospects in this state for good
prices for our wheat crop. Everything
seems to indicate that the price of wheat
will be larger this year than last. The
acreage of wheat this year is very large."
Organization of the Florida Legislature.
. Tallahassee, April 8. The senate
and house organized yesterday. Gov
ernor Fleming's biennial message was
submitted today. A democratic caucus
will probably be called in a few days on

the necessary two-thirds vote in the
joint caucus. ' '

Hardbnry's Application for a Govern
ment XCoad may be Considered
Washington, D. C, April 6. Sen
ator Dolph said today that unless
something of importance transpired to
prevent it, the president would leave
Washington for the Pacific coast the 14th
inet., that he would like to be in Oregon
when the president was there, but his
arrangements were such that he could
not be there ; that he had an engage
ment of long standing to attend a ban
quet to be given at Delmonico's in New
York by the Protective Tariff League on
the 29th of April ; that the senate com
mittee "on our relations with Canada,"
of which he is a member, and arranged
to take testimony at Detroit, beginning
the 30th inst., and after that to take
testimony at Buffalo ; that so soon . after
the committee had finished its work as
he could make the necessary arrange
ments, he would start for Oregon with
his family. The senator also has several
cases in the supreme court.
Senator Dolph said that he had spent
the day mostly in tracing the history of
the application of the state portage rail
road over the land of the United States
at the cascades of the Columbia, and for
the privilege of using the government
road there. Major Handbury, the en
gineer in charge, had recommended to
the chief of engineers that he be author
ized to construct noon the government
reservation out of the money appropria
ted for the construction of the canal and
locks a railroad to connect with a road
to be built bv the state on either side
and to be used in connection with the
state road for commercial purposes, pro
vided the state would transport over the
road materials for the government worK
The chief of engineers nad strongly rec
ommended to the secretary that Major
Handbury thould be authorized to do
this, but in the absence of the secretary
the assistant secretary of war had re
ferred the matter to the judge advocate
eeneral for his opinion. He had held
that the secretary had no authority to
authorize the expenditure for the pur
pose, and that the state must build the
road and should be required to make
amplication to the secretary for the Driv
ileges desired, and furnish a description
of the right of way that the secretary
mieht make the necessary regulations.
The matter has now been referred, to the
attorney-general and is in the hands of
Jndee Phillips, assistant attorney-gen
eral. Senator Dolph presented the
matter fully to Judge Phillips and the
attorney-general on benait oi tne state,
and believes that the opinion of the
judge advocate-general will be overruled,
and it would be held that the secretary
had authority to authorize Major Hand
bury to proceed and. construct tne road.
The decision is expected soon.

Dempsey Was Cheered by Manager
Barnes' Brother-In-Law. .
Spokane Falls, April 6. Young Jack
Dempsey, of California, and Charlie
Webber, of St. Paul, fought before the
athletic club tonight for a purse of $500,
$300 to the winner and $200 to the loser.
Four hundred people witnessed the
fight, which was scientific and cautious
in the early stages, but-spirited and hot
toward the close. The men seemed to
be remarkably evenly matched. In the
ninth and tenth rounds Dempsey forced
the fighting and pushed Webber to the
ropes. In the eleventh round Webber
rallied and closed Jack's right eye.
From then on to the sixteenth round
Webber fought .with cautious but telling
tactics. When time was called for the
seventeenth round Dempsey threw up
the fight, several bones in both hands
having been broken. This announce
ment was questioned by those present,
but an examination by a physician con
firmed its truthfulness. The crowd dis
persed with three loud cheers for Demp

Rome, April 6. The arrival of the text

demand for recognition of the principles
of international justice. The excitement
has entirely subsided.

OUR OWN STATE NEWS.
Case of Leprosy
at the State
Salem, April o. Superintendent
Downing, of the state penitentiary, is
more than uneasy over the symptoms
developed by a prisoner who is a patient
in the penitentiary hospital. He fears"
the ailment is the dreaded leprosy. The
unfortunate victim is a man named W.
M. Morris, who has for several months
been developing symptoms of some horri
ble disease, which is now making quick
inroads upon him. At first his ailment
was thought to be nothing more serious
than a venereal disease, but it is now
thought to be leprosy. The body is
rottintr. and already has holes large -
enough to hide a person's hand. Morris
was born in Richmond, Va., and came
to the prison three and a half years ago
from The Dalles. Dr. Downing will
likely prohibit visitors at the prison for
some time. Morris will be removed to a
barn, near the prison, and there treated .
until cured or dead. The decaying body
emits a horrible smell, which no disin
fectant can overcome. The prison of
ficers are at a loss to know what course
to pursue. They will try and get an or
der to remove him to some hospital for
Woman and Polities.
If women are good and politics bad,
by what logic, or even by what common
sense, or what moral sense, does it come
about that school education should be
given over to the latter?. Regarding
goodness it has been said, "Be not good
merely, but be good for something." If
woman is good, let her goodness be made
available just here where goodness is
needed. Abby Morton Diaz in Chau
