Reject Suicide Theory.
Tlie theory of suicide, put aside
earlier in the day, was revived last
night, bjt the police declared the evi
dence to Indicate murder. The knife
with which Dr. Knabe was killed has
not been found and the coroner ami
the police were of the opinion that
If she herself gashed her throat, the
would not have had strength to have
hidden the knife and then returned
to her bed.
Haynes, the Janitor, who had
known Dr. Knabe for year*, told the
police that he went to bed in the
basement of the apartment house at
II oetock last night. Dr. Knabe’'!
apartment was Just above.
He was awakened In the night, he

About the Apple Crop
Tbe other day we saw some bar

bad come all the way from Missouri

old-fashioned style of the barrel pack

ed and sent out In the box pack be

does seem strange that in this late
day of promokiglcal progress that
any of our dealer* would think of
running down to Missouri ter their
measly old apples when (hey could
get so much better oner right here
at home. The answer, however, la
simply enough: These Missouri ap
ples are laid down In Denver at about
half the price of'the western elope
fruit and this la a Mg Incentive to
patronise the Missourians when we
ought to be bnytng at home. Cheap J
apples and cheap people will alwiays

the number of the pack is given with

"Jake” strayed into Saginaw. Mich.,
when that lumber town was booming
many years ago.' He established a
clothing business and prospered. He

producer was first discovered, and
made a fortune. Then Jits health
foiled.
He decided to go Into Detroit and
establish a clothing house. C. H.

open style of the diagonal pack should
not be used unless the apples will
St no other way. The diagonal pack
at Its beat sbould of course show no
•paces between the apples on any
tier, but each apple should touch nil
six aides of its neighbors so aa to
hold firm and not slack and reach the
trade In good condition.
The west will never be happy until
it gets the storage in transit privi
lege aa an adjunct in working off Its
rapidly increasing crops of apple*.
Tbe absolute lack of Intelligent distri
bution comes about through tbe rigid
rules of railroads regarding freight
rates on box apples; *1 the hundred
is the rate on a carload of box apples
whether shipped to Denver. Chicago
or New York and when stored at one
point or the other It cannot be re
shipped without paying another
freight rate. If n storage in transit
privilege la allowed there would *i
once develop a system or distribu
tion which would scatter the crop nil

OUR PROTEST
BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF COLO
RADO STaTE FAIR TO MEET
AT PUEBLO.
President J. L. Beaman lias notified
the members of the board of directors
of the Colorado State Fair associa
tion In writing to meet In Pueblo at
10 o'clock Wednesday morning, No
vember Bth, to consider the protest
of the Fremont county exhibitors at
the recent state fair in relation to
some of the awards made in the hor
ticultural section. The premium for
the best county display of fruit* at
the state fair eras given to Delta
county, despite the fact that a great
many more individual prizes in
department were given to Fremont
county than to exhibitors from any
other portion of Colorado. How It
was'that Fremont county growers
could win in Individual displays and
yet lose in their collective capacity
la a thing that paases comprehension.
It Is logical to suppose that If they
were successful in one instance they
would be In the other, especially as
Identically the same fruit was pass
ed upon in both cases.
Mr. Taylor, Mr. Troutman and oth
er exhibitors in the horticultural sec
tion at the state fslr pointed out the
inconsistencies of the findings of the
judges at the time and objected to
Delta county being given the sweep
stakes prise when the showing made
by Its individual exhibitors was man
festly Inferior to the displays made
by orchardisis from this county. As
no attention was made to their ob- '
Jections a formal protest was later
aaterwd and was so strong is lb it
islgs Slant of the lad gas amt M coaU
not be easily Ignored. In 'his call
to the members of the board of direc
tors. Mr. Beaman says:
“Ton are hereby notified that the
