GREAT DANGER FOR ROOSEVELT FEVER ~ BREEDING CLIMATE, BLEEPING SICKNESS AND TREACHEROUS GUIDES PERILS ARE MANIFOLD CATHOLfC BISHOP FROM AFRICA DOUBTS IF ALL PARTY WILL RETURN. New York.—Bishop Hugh Mac She rry, the Homan Catholic prelate from Africa, who is visiting in Brooklyn, is of the opinion that not all of the Roose velt hunting party will return to this country alive, and that Mr. Roosevelt himself is running a great risk. He says: "The sort of places that the party must go through to get at the game is against Col. Roosevelt. The climate itself constitutes a danger. There are swamps, breeding malaria, and low lying places generally. There is dan ger of fever. He may get the sleeping sickness. Then he will never come back. This lays hold of whites as well as the blacks. “The natives are treacherous and they are indispensable as carriers ami guides. They have been known to de sert their parties and run away. The cause of this is superstitious fear. What would happen to Mr. Roosevelt and his companions if they were thus treated? They would not know their route in a wild country, and they would he unable to carry alone their camping outfits and food.” Mr. Roosevelt is just the sort of a robust man that would succumb among the first. "I would not like to predict any man's death, but I fully concur with the opinion of Prof. Frederick Starr, of the University of Chicago, that it Is highly probable not all the party will return alive," continued the bishop. "My knowledge is derived from ac counts missionaries have given me. I know the Right Rev. Henry Hanlon, bishop of Uganda. A young friend of mine was killed there two years ago by a rhinoceros, which is the most dan gerous of all the animals. My friend, who was surveying, was a son of Al exander Wilmot, legislator of Cape Colony. "Wild beasts—especially the rhinoc eros—the treachery of natives, bad wa ter, dysentery, sleeping sickness, smallpox, malaria an i enteric fever are encountered in equatorial Africa. "I should like to think that he would profit by all the information that has been placed within his reach. I should he very happy to think that he would have the advice of a local physician. "Of all the dangers, perhaps the worst is from the wild animals. I as sure you this part of Africa is not like a zoological garden. Lionß, tigers and rhinoceroses abound. The fact that Mr. Roosevelt wears glasses will con stitute a very considerable element of danger. No matter what trialß of his aggressiveness, they would he required to he continued up to date in order that the great activity of his previous life as a Rough Rider should stand in his aid now.” Weather Bureau Highly Valued.

GOVERNOR USES HIS VETO POWER DISAPPROVES BILL RAISING THE SALARIES OF COUNTY OFFICERS. POLL TAX IS RETAINED VETOES BILL PROVIDING FOR AGRICULTURAL COMMISSION AT COST OF SIO,OOO. Denver.—The first bills to be killed by the governor Tuesday were the six hills which passed the Legislature raising the classification of counties In the matter of salaries of county of ficers. The bills would have raised the salaries of county officers from S3OO to $1,200 a year. The six bills were for the following counties; Routt, Yuma, Arapahoe, Fremont, Otero and Otero and Bent combined. There were thirty or forty bills in troduced before the Seventeenth Gen eral Assembly affecting the classifica tion of counties and only six were passed. The governor says in his message to the secretary of state, “It seems to me that no uniformity of classification can be obtained by the passage of Individual bills. The class ification of counties in the state of Colorado for fees was made according to the population of each county, and the classification of salaries, without specifying population of counties, cor responded with the classification of counties for fees. I believe there should be a re-classification of coun ties for salaries, but it should be done according to the population of the re spective counties. As the census of the United States will be taken in June of next year, a re-classification will doubtless be made by the next General Assembly, when all the coun ties will be treated fairly according to their population." Governor Shafroth also vetoed the bill by which the government donates the Fort Lewis Indian school to the state, upon the condition that it be maintained as an educational institu tion. The bill contained no provision for maintainance and the offer of the government is good until July 1, 1910, so the governor saw no reason for hurrying in the matter. Two bills granting rights of way through the grounds of the state in sane asylum at Pueblo, were vetoed. One granted a right to the Kansas- Colorado Railroad Company, and one for a wagon road. Most of the states allow one-half acre of ground for each of the patients contained in their state Insane asylums. Colorado’s asylum has 700 inmates and should have 350 acres, but has only sixty. Governor Shafroth did not feel like giving anj land away for that reason. The Kansas-Colorado road also told the asylum authorities that they would bo satisfied with a twelve-foot right of way and upon receiving nssurance that no objection would be raised, the officers of the road came to Denver and got a bill through calling for a forty-foot right of way. Thi*s would amount to two and one-half acres. During the evening four bills were vetoed. Senator Carpenter’s bill. No. 4, providing for an additional one twentieth of a mill levy for the sup port and maintenance of the Normal school of Greeley was vetoed. H. B. 108, amending the statutes relating to the state militia so as to remove the military poll tax was vetoed because it would impair the state revenues. S. B. 256, providing for an agricultural commission, to have offices in the state capitol, nnd a SIO,OOO appropria tion. was vetoed. The duty of the com mission was to have been the conduct ing of farmers’ institutes and assist ance of state fairs us far as possible. Governor Shafroth did not think that there was sufficient need for the com mission at the cost it would entail. S. B. 59, amending the statutes in regard to improvements in cities and towns of less than 100,000 inhabitants, was ve toed. The bill related particularly to the advertisement of Improvements. Any city of the character named might, under the bill, advertise in some paper having a general circula tion in the city or town. The intro ducer of the bill intended that it should apply to towns particularly where there was no daily paper pub lished. But Governor Shafroth de cided in his statement to the secre tary of state that it would permit the commission of frauds by allowing a city or town council to advertise In a paper of another town in order to con ceal information about some contracts. The bills signed by the governor were: S. B. 342. appropriating $176,- 000 for the State University; S. B. 118, appropriating $75,000 for the School of Mines; S\ B. 82, appropriat ing $119,372 for the State Agricultural College; H.
