ELECTION TROIBLE IX DENVER.
Return Locked t'p and Both rarties oa
tinard Over the Same.
DENVES, Nov. 9 The fact that the Re
publican candidate for a couuty office, I
E. Bert, on election day conceded the elec
tion of G. J. Kindel, his opponent (Tax
payers ticket), and next day claimed the
election himself, caused visions of skull
duggery in the minds of many, and Kin
del, taking the advice of Myron Reed, got
bis shotgun and went hunting for Bert.
He did not find him, but the mobocratic
spirit appeared and for a time It looked
like war. The officials cleared the court
house and the returns are now locked in
the county clerk's office, while representa
tives of both tho Republican and Tax
payers tickfcts keep constant guard to see
that they ore not tampered with.
Bert declines to allow any one to see the
figures, but says he has a plurality ou the
face of tho returns of 102. Friends of his
opponent, (i. J. Kindel, say they believe
the returns arc fraudulent, and that a legal
contest vrill be filed as soon as the official
canvass is mode, which will lie some time
next week. The law provides that the
canvass shall be made by tho clerk and
two justices of the peace, but it is rumored
that an effort will be-made to have the
work done by the judges of the district

Pittsbciio, Nov. V. Senator Brlee

Quay was beaten worse than Gorman was

New Civil Hervlee Rale That Will
Many I'ostal Positions.
Washington1, Nov. 9. A new rule of
civil service has been approved by the
president. It reads: "And whenever, by
order of the postmaster general any post
office shnll be consolidated with and made
a part of another po&toffieo where free de
livery is established, all the employes of
the office thus consolidated whose names
appear on the roil of said office approved
by the postoffico department and Includ
ing the postmaster thereof, shall from the
date of said order be employes of said
free delivery office, nnd the person holding
on the date of said order toe posit i in of post
master at the office thus consolidated with
said fre delivery office may lie assigned to
Buy iMH'llon therein und given any appro
priate desi-inat ion under the classification
aet wmeli tho postmaster general may direct."
It is the intention of the postoffico de
partment to consolidate many offices
throughout the country. this consoli
diition will not necessarily do away with
tho olU.vs, but will establish them as
stations of some central point. The order
dues not mean.however.thot when any ollieo
Is consolidated with another it will bo

It will receive and distribute its mail as
at present. The postmaster may become
a clerk or chief of the station, or he mny
be dischurged und somo other person ap
pointed, but as soon as he becomes
clerk in the station he is included in the
classified service and protected by it.

That Was Net Adopted Because Its Adop
Sioa Was Considered Inexpedient Re
port from Chicago That a Deal Has Beea
Complowd for Building the Canal With
out Asking Congress for Anything, Brit
ish Capitalists to Supply the Funds.
New Yobk, Nov. . The Society of Na
val Architects and Marine Engineers,
which has been in session here, had a
warm discussion over the Nicaragua
canal. The question before the body was
the proposition of presenting a memorial
to congress from the society asking favor
able action on the Nicaragua canal pro
ject under tho auspices of an American
company, and the proposition to present
the memorial was defeated by a vote of 27
to l.s. The report in favor of the proposi
tion presented a memorial to congress
suggesting "tho question of aiding by
suitable legislation befitting the magni
tude of the great project of any properly
organized American corporation engaged
or to De engagea in tne tasK oi construct
ing a ship canal through the territory of
the republic of Nicaragua."
Would Cement the East and West.
The memorial then went on to say
that: "It seems to us to promise to the
people of the United States the means of
cementing in even closer union than now
exists the seaboard states of the Atlantio
and Pacific; of rendering one and indi-
vlslablc the ties that bind the extreme
oast to the extreme west, und of justifying
one of the mottoes of this glorious Union,
'csto perpctua.' It further promises to In
sure closer tics of friendship between our
selves and the Central and South Ameri
can republics, giving to this country that
predominance in the affaire of the Anier
icun continent which by right wc should
have, but which has been jealously con
tested hitherto by certain European
Cummings Complalus of the West.
Tho opposition to the memorial was
based on the ground that it was inexpe
dient for the society to interest itself in
legislation. The third annual banquet of
the society was held last night in the ban
quet hall of the Hotel Brunswick. The
first speaker introduced was Representative-elect
Amos Cummings, who re
sponded to the toast "The Navy." Cum
mings said that England spends in one
year on her navy what we spend in six
years. "If we attempt to do the same,"
he said, "we put on a long face and throw
up both hands. But the people who do
this and prevent our efforts to make a na
val showing are our western brethren, who
have never even seen the seacoast and are
indifferent as to whether or not that sea
coast and its cities be attacked by an en
18 A DEAD ISSUE ANYHOW.
Canal Will Be Built with British Capital,
Says the Chicago Post.
Chicago, Nov. . The Evening Pest as
sert that tho N lcarajua canal is to be
built; that New York and London capital
will foot the bills, and American con
tractors do the work. It is also said that
Chicago engineers and tho drainage board
contractors will have a leading part in the
construction; that while the deal has not
ct been completed negotiations are in j
very advuncr.1 stage and almost on the
ergo of completion. All attempts to se
cure financial nil from this government
will be abandoned and the matter prose
cuted as a purely private enterprise.
lhe principal negotiations have been
going ou, it is stuted, since the visit ot
Warner Miller to this city a tew weeks
ago. o names ore given in connection
with the plan. This has been brought
ab)Ut by investigation made by leading
spirits in the Nicaragua scheme into the
work being curried on in the shape of tho
thirty million dollar Chicago drainage
cunal. For months experts have boon in
vestigating this work, und it is said that
as the result the moving spirits in this
work have been invited to visit the Nica
ragua leaders In New York.
The Post further asserts that for several
months certain London financiers, in com
pany with sonic New lorkers, havo
been looking into the scheme, and havo
practically decided to back it. Between
70,0O3,0U0 and S5,O0O,OUO will be needed,
and that amount, says The Post, has been
in effect guaranteed.
