Colorado's Sad Plight.
The political situation in Color

Adams, democrat, was elected
on the face of the returns by
11,000 majority, but Governor
Peabody, republican, says it is a
false countenance, and that he,
himself, is the really, truly gov
ernor elect With the able as
sistance of the republican legis
lature and the republican su
preme court Peabody is busy
making over the face of the re
turns. Peabody says the demo
crats stole those eleven thousand
votes and even more, and Adams
says the republicans are trying
to steal the governorship. These
things are but milk and water
compared to what the rest of the
state is saying.
Some of the people of Colorado
are great thieves. We have the
word of all of the people of Col
orado for it. We are pretty far
away to say whether republicans
or democrats are right, but this

republicans will never prove they
are right by continuing in office
by force of might.
is something most
queer about the argument of our
Minneapolis friends who are out
to beat Senator Clapp. They de

body but Judge Gilfillan and that
they are waiting to endorse
Judge Gilfillan until they are as

its full quota of freak legislation.
There has been enough of this
sort proposed already to keep
the Minnesota legislature busy
until the middle of next summer.
The latest is a proposed bill
making it a misdemeanor for a
landlord to refuse to rent-a house
to a family having children.^,The
author of the bill says that he is
a public philanthropisthe de
clares that when a landlord ex
cludes families with children he
is simply putting a premium on
race suicide.^tf freak bills keep

on multiplying at this rate the
members of the legislature may
take to race suicide in self de
fense before the session is over.
