T. ■Nikon of Greeley for lieutenant governor. Edward P. Coatigan is drawing up the petition to be submitted to the supreme court in which he will set forth the legal claims of Mr. ■Nixon to the orfloe to which the /late B. P. Montgomery was elected / and lor which Mr. Nixon was the next highest man. The decialon of the Bull Mooae leaders to urge the claims of Mr. Nixon was reached this morning after Mr. Coatigan had reported that he believed that there were just legal grounds for the claim. Mr. Coatigan, as the attorney for the Bull Moose and aa the recognized leader of the party In Colorado, has ****•> working for three days look ing up precedents In such cases, and me statement is made that he established what he considers ample grounds for Mr. Nixon to claim the lieutenant governorship. The prece dents, however, are kept secret un til the petition Is filed with the su- Currier Estate Report in Paper is Wrong Declares One of Trustees In the Denver Republican yeßtcfN day was published the following: “The court reversed the judge ment of the (ireeiey county court, appointing James Tuckerman and Willihm May her trustees of the Judge Warren Currier estate, valued at $25,000. Tuckerman and Mayher were charged with malad ministration, fraud and misappro priation of moneys, and grandchild ren of the wealthy Judge asked that they be removed. The county court refused, but the higher tribunal bolds that it was without Jurisdic tion orlgfnally in appointing Tuck ermann and Mayher. Action will probably be brought by the heirs of the estate against Tuckerman and Mayher for the recovery of approxi mately $50,000.“ William Mayher, one of the trus tees of the estate In question, says that this report la erroneous and that the real facta show that Mr. Brock, an attorney of Denver filed , a motion with the supreme court after they had decided that the county court here had Jurisdiction, and that Tuc&erman and Mayher were properly appointed, and were j they could farm scientifically and | not be. made into indifferent profes j sional men in an already over i crowded field. Several important resolutions | will be introduced at the session j this afternoon. One will commend * the county commissioners for the I work done on the county roads and huving the convicts brought here, another will thank Warden Tynan ! for his talk and another w ill ask that Governor-elect Ammons re-ap- I point Mr. Tynan warden of the peni tentiary. A feature of this afternoons meting is the ciuestion to be an swered by Mr. Himuan whether Weld county shall have a farm sup erintendent in line with other coun ties of the state. Sugar beet grow ing, and the potato situation are on , the program and if there is time ! Postmaster Gray, who did not have time to talk yesterday on the par cel post, will make his explanation <of the new law. The attendance this afternoon was larger than yesterday and it is expected that with the warmer weather the total number expected will come in for the last days of the institute. Following is the program for to- I morrow afternoon: 1:00 to 1:30. Question box and answers. Prof. C. H. Hinman. 1:30 to 3:00. Siloa and silage b Urn ling. O. H. Latdelt. W. H.

I preme court for the reason that Mr. Coatigan does not wish to submit to the. publfc his case before filing it with the highest court in the state. ! This entrance of the Bull Mooae with their candidate further com -1 :>licates the struggle for lieutenant \ governor, and while several lawyers 1 today said that they failed to see where Mr. Nixon had a "look in*’, yet they admitted that if Mr. Cos ti'gan had investigated the legal end i,.i there was undoubtedly a right that they were not familiar with. In the Non ember election Mr. Montgomery, democrat, received .-,54 4. and Mr. Nixon, . Bull Moose, received 66,036 for lieuten .a, kon ernor. Mr. Montgomery died before the official canvass and ; hence was not in a legal sense elect ed. Mr. Nixon being the next high cat man, or the next choice of the people, it is contended by him that he is entitled to the office. The petition to the supreme court Will probably b«- filed within a few 1 days. The term of S. R. Fitzgar rald, the present lieutenant gover nor, end at noon next Tuesday. the executives of the state of Wat*- 1 ren Currier. Brock asked lor an j interpretation of the increment question in the will, which they have answered, saying that upon a proper showing, the executives would be justified in paying the in crement. Phe will says the value of the estate shall never go above the original amount left by the tes tator. Henry Currier claims that the estate is worth much more than at the time of his father’s death. The onlv way this question can be decided would be by a conservative Inventory of its present value. Mr. Todd filed a motion with the court for a re-hearing of nil matters connected with the estate, which is answered in this way: "We adhere to our former views iin all matters covered by the ori ginal opinion. The petition for re hearing is denied.” —♦ Dupton H»* Kin* Hell I Fort Lupton. nJn. 8. —The new i fire hell arrived here last night and | w ill be placed in a tower on the , town hall.
