THE LIEUT. GOVERNOR
WHO IS HE TO BE IN COLORADO?
Promise of a Contest Between Sena
tors Parks and Cornforth—Emi
nent Lawyers Differ in
D*nver, April 14th. —The Republican
this morning says: Who is lieutenant
governor of tho great state of Colo
rado? It took some months to reach a
decision respecting who should hold
the high office of governor, but it will
not take so long to reach a finding on
the other point and the sensational
features will be absent. Senator Ar
thur Cornforth of El Paso and Senator
Fred W. Parks of Denver are the
claimants to the office vacated by the
present governor and the odds favor
Senator Cornforth arrived in Denver
yesterday to be ready to jump into the
shoes of Governor McDouuld should it
be decided to cross the border line to
greet and give “good hunting all” to
the President of the United States.
Senator Parks, who was elected
presiding officer of the Senate by that
body in its closing hours, believes that
he is lieutenant governor and has been
advised by able counsel to this effect.
The issue will be tuken into the Su
preme Court at once. Some acts of
Senator Cornforth to-day may be used
as ates friendly test, as it were.
At the opening of the Senate Senator
Cornforth was elected president pro
tern of the Senate. When Lieutenant
Governor McDonald was exalted to the
chief office Senator Cornforth laid
claim to the ofllce of president pro tern,
of the Senate and acting lieutenant
governor. Attorney General Miller
was asked for an opinion and he gave
one and entered into the legal ques
tions at considerable length. Attorneys
are at work preparing for a test on be
half of Senator Parks. The principal
point raised is that Senator Cornforth
could not hold the two offices of presi
dent pro tern, and of lieutenant gover
nor at one and the same time. If he
served as lieutenant governor he could
not continue to serve as president pro
tem. of the Senate, and there is a ques
tion whether he could draw the pay of
a senator and the emoluments attached
to the office of lieutenant governor.
When the Senate elected Senator
Parks its president, to serve in the in
terim, this act clothed him with the
office of lieutenant governor. This ar
gument is taken by his attorneys, some
of whom occupy exalted positions at
Senator Parks has been out of the
city but will return to-day. He will

CRIPPLE CREEK MURDER.
Woman Kills Alleged Paramour of
Cripple Creek. Colo., April 14.—Mrs.
Helen C. Douglas was shot and almost
instantly killed in room 307 of the Na
tional hotel at 10 o’clock yesterday
morning by Mrs. S. W. Vidler. Mrs.
Vldler went to the room in search of
her husband and seeing him in the
room when the door was opened by
Mrs. Douglas, she became enraged,
raised the revolver, and fired at the
woman, whom she had accused yester
day of alienating her husband's affec
tions. The bullet entered the victim’s
left breast and caused almost instant
death. Vldler had taken refuge in the
closet. His wife became hysterical
after firing the shot, and he came out
and took the weapon away from her.
Vidler. who has been engaged in
mining and newspaper work in the dis
trict about eight years, engaged quar
ters at the hotel several weeks ago
after a disagreement with his wife
which led to their separation. It is
claimed by Mrs. Vidler that she went
to the hotel this morning for the sole
purpose of consulting with her hus
band regarding their thirteen-year-old
son. Walter, who had been punished
several times lately by his teacher.
She thought that lie received more
punishment than he deserved and
wanted her husband to see the school
‘authorities regarding tho matter.
Mrs. Vidler went direct to the room
which she knew her husband had en
gaged at the hotel. Failing to find him
there, and having seen him in com
pany with Mrs. Douglas yesterday, she
inquired the number of the latter’s
room and went there. Her feelings
overcame her when she saw her hus
band and the woman together, and the
Mrs. Vidler was arrested and admit
ted to hail in the sum of $5,000.
A coroner’s inquest was held, the
jury returning the following verdict:
“We find that the said Mrs. Douglas
came to her denth from a gunshot
wound inflicted by Mrs. Sam Vidler at
the National hotel on April 13th; that
the said shot was fired by Mrs. Sam
Vidler while in a state of groat mental
excitement and the said jurors are un

I lost my appetite

The Rearing of Lions.
Few, if any, menageries in the world
can show a more remarkably record of
lion rearing than that of the Dublin
“zoo.” From the old lion house, which
was recently replaced by a magnificent
building, to which Lord Roberts has
given his name, lions bred within its
walls have been consigned to almost
every quarter of the globe. Upward of
200 cubs saw the light in the oldjiou
house, anil the sum of nearly $25,000
resulted from their sale to other me
nageries, both at home and abroad.
One lioness, whose career in the gar
dens extended over a period of sixteen
years, gave birth in her time to no
fewer than fifty-five cubs, which real
ized the sum of $7,000.
EVERY ONE ASKS RIM
HOW HE GOT RID OF HIS OBSTINATE
Mr. Jonfi Telia of the Way by WMcH **•
Treated Hlinaelf Sui-cewfull/
When L’octora Failed.
Six physicians, all of them good, one ot
them a iqiecialist, had done their btfi
for Mr. Jones nt different times during
three years, and still ho suffered fear
fully from tho tortures of rheumatism.
The rheumatism that had been dor
mant in his system was suddenly
bronght to ail acute stage by exposure
while ho was drawing ice in February,
1901. From that time on for a period
of more than three years ho wns a con
stant sufferer. Ho tried many kinds of
treatment, but tho rheumatism wouldn’t
budgo. When regular doctors failed,
and one remedy after another proved
useless, many suid: “I should think ho
■would give it up and save his money.”
Of his condition nt this time, Mr.
Jones says : “My rheumatism started
in my right thigh, hut iu time it ap
peared in evory muscle of my body. I
lost the use of my left nrm en
tirely and nearly%>st tho use of my
right oue. My feet were badly affected,
especially tho bottoms of the heels.
When my right side was affected there
was swelling, but the left side didn't
swell when the disease settled there.
The iuternal organs didn’t seem tube
involved at all. Tho trouble wu3 all iu
the muscles and tho nerves.”
Among tho few who still encouraged
Mr. Joues to think thnt n cure might
yet bo found was a friend who had rea
son for great confidence in Dr. Wil
liams' Pink Pills, and acting on her
advice he bought a box of them in Sep
tember, 1904. The story of what fol
lowed is brief, but uothiug could bo
“ When I was on the third box,” says
Mr. Jones, “ I could realize a chunge for
the better. I felt sure then that Dr.
Williams’ Pink Pills were the rigltf
medicine for my case. I kept on witfc
them for several weeks longer and now
I am entirely well, and everybody &
asking what I took.”
Mr. William .Tones lives at Oxford.
Mich. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills effect
wonderful cures iu rheumatism, because
they work directly ou the blood which is
the seat of the disease. They are sold
by every druggist.
Every married man has two wives—
