(JLMAR O COLORADO IN THE COLORADO PENITENTIARY GOMVICTB DOING CONSTRUCTION WORK ON NEW HOSPITAL BUILDING. A MODERN STRUCTURE EXCELLENT SCHOOL IS MAIN TAINED WITH PRISONERS FOR INSTRUCTORS. Denver. —Alfred Damon Runyon In the Denver News gives the following Interesting account of affairs at the state penitentiary at Canon City: The new hospital building, which is betas constructed by the convicts themselves, will be the most modern and complete structure of the kind In the United States, and will be a mon ument to the administration of the present warden. It is the old female department, entirely remodeled and reconstructed. It is two stories high, of the same heavy stone as the rest of the penitentiary buildings, and is absolutely fireproof. Dreat wide, light wards line either aide of the downstairs portions, while there will be rooms upstairs for the very sick. The physicians and nurses have the best of accommodations, and every detail of the new structure cor responds with the best hospitals in the country. The sick convicts will have better care than they might be able to have on the outside, and the only suggestion of prison about the whole place is carried by the iron bars at the windows. The present hospital is small and Inadequate. It will be used for school rooms by the warden, when the new Building is ready. The night school, aatablished by Chaplain Blake, is one of the features of the penitentiary, and one which has been productive of an immense amount of good. It is now held every night in the chapel and Is attended by scores of prisoners. Starting with a primary grade, the classes run to the highest mathemati cal and other instruction. The teachers are prisoners, and some of them manifest an ability In Instruction which would put many a high-salaried pedagogue to shame There are classes in English for the Mexican, Greek and Italian prisoners. Instructed either by their countrymen or by American prisoners who under stand those languages. For Instance, one of the Spanish teachers Is Ferdi nand Sanchec, the young Mexican who killed a girl for her life insurance money In Denver about twelve years ago. He Is an excellent teacher, too. Sanchez is also the prison photogra pher. He was a young man when he was sent to the penitentiary and his hair is now quite white. His parents are very wealthy people. Nagahashl. a Denver Jap, Is a very apt pupil In the first grade. He Is learning English. Nagahashl killed a fellow countryman In a fit of Jealousy over a gif! and is serving a life sen tence. There Is only one Chinaman in the prison, and he does not attend school. He Is serving a long term for shooting another Chinaman at Du rango. The school is encouraged in every way by Warden Tynan and the prison ers take a decided Interest. The pris on has a well-appointed library, which Is about to be removed from Its pres ent quarters, a small stone building in the prison yard, to the old hospital portion. Warden Tynan also takes much interest in the library and is constantly enlarging it. The prison ers are permitted to take any books from there that they desire, and read them In their cells. The new library will be a vast im provement over the old. The reported robbery of J. D. Turn er’s residence at Manltou has given the police a puzzling case. The first clew was furnished by the unearthing of a box of old English coins by sev eral children who dug the treasure from the foot of Red mountain. It has since been learned that the coins belonged to Turner. In view of the coins being buried the police think ■ other treasure has been con cealed about tue bills of Manitou by tiie robbers. Leonard Imboden and James A. Hill, sentenced to the penitentiary by Judge Peter L. Palmer, at Den ver, March 13, 1906, to terms of from nine to ten years in connection with the Denver Sav ings bank receivership, at last are to have a hearing, after constant efforts to get it. Their application came be fore the state board of pardons on the 13th Inst, and it decided to give both Imboden and Hill a special hehring. The case was postponed, therefore, to January 29th. F. N. Briggs, the largest depositor «i the Grand County bank of Sulphur Springs, which went to the wall be cause of the alleged manipulation of Its funds by C. H. Bowlds, is quoted as authority for the statement that a set tlement of all claims against the bank Is assured. Suits have been filed In the Federal Court at Denver by United States Dis trict Attorney Ward against Emery Knowles, R. T. Smith and Ted Smith, cattlemen of Mesa county, charging them with illegal fencing of the public domain. Resolutions severely condemning the Colorado Humane Society for giving out reports to the press of alleged suffering and cruelty to animals upon the range, which the stockmen feel puts them unwarrantedly in a bad light, were adopted by the Colorado Stock Growers’ Association.

Whether the thirteenth census on which the government intends to spend at least J 13,000,000, will give a correct picture of the nation, depends as much on the people themselves as upon the enumerators, who number 65,000. Director Durand makes this declaration in his annual report. The director says that any person or cor poration may make returns and know that when the results are published it will be impossible to identify them with any individual, or set of men. The returns are not disclosed to any one not employed in the census bu reau. A statement issued by the postoffice department of the gross receipts of fifty of the largest postoffices for De cember, 1909. as compared with De cember. 1908. shows the Denver re ceipts for December. 1909. to be 9122.- 539.19. and for December. 1908.

ENGLAND HAVING CLOSE ELECTION INDICATIONS THAT LIBERALIBTS WILL HAVE SAFE WORK ING MAJORITY. OUT NO CERTAINTY YET RESULT MAY GIVE BALANCE OF POWER TO THE NATION ALIST PARTY. London. —Sunday gave a welcome respite from the strenuous work at the election stations, and an opportunity for calm reflection over the prospects of both parties striving for control of the government, he greatest anima tion prevailed at the clubs and other rendezvous of politicians and Satur day's results were excitedly discussed from every possible viewpoint. Although both sides preserve a san -uine a'r of confidence, it la evident that the Conservatives have abandoned hope that their party will form the next government. The utmost they dare to expect is that the Liberal ma jority will be so reduced In the next Parliament as to place the Liberalists at the mercy of the Nationalists. It must be remembered that Mr. Bal four, leader of the- opposition in the House of Commons, in a speech some days ago, said the great political is sues now in question would not be set tled by one general election, and per haps not by two. Clearly the ex-pre mier accurately measured the situ ation and the hopes of the tariff re formers must now be centered ui>on some future general election. -An estimate made Sunday by well informed Unionists, based on Satur day's pollings, gives the Liberals and Laborites a clear majority of 90 or 100 ver all parties, which would provide the Liberal government with a good working majority. Many of the Union ists, however, are less despondent. They do not believe the Liberalists will finish the election with so good a record as this. At the National Liberal club great satisfaction is expressed over the re sults so far. Some further losses are expected at Glasgow, and a reduced vote In the English counties, where the agricultural vote would be likely to benefit from tariff reform and where the landed Interests have great influence. Tunnel Disaster Kills Three. Denver.—A News special from Montrose Sunday night says: The death toll claimed by the Gunnison tunnel since construction was begun was increased today, when three men were killed by gas following a blast. A. S. Haynes. Parker Patten and N. Martin were suffocated and a score of others had a narrow escape from death. The accident was one of the most peculiar that has ever happened In construction work of this character. The afternoon shift had fired a round of shots at the tunnel heading, where the bore is being enlarged, and it was the smoke and gas generated by these shots which caused tbe death of the three men. The shots were fired two miles from the end of the tunnel and a mile west of where the shots were fired is an air shaft. Formerly all of the smoke and gases had escaped through this ventilating shaft; but today, for some reason not yet explained, there was a shift in the air-current and the en tire volume of smoke and gases was hurled back upon the huddled work men, who had retired five or six hun dred feet lrom the shot and out of the danger zone of flying missiles. The gases and smoke approached so rapidly that the thirty men were en veloped before they realized their danger. When they found that the smoke and gases were about them, the men began a mad race with death to reach the fresh air, two miles away. Those who were the fresher and more vigorous stopped to assist their companions as they dropped and this retarded their progress toward safety. Finally an electric tram was overta ken and the survivors were hurried to the fresh air. Ten or twelve of the men were so nearly dead that for sev eral hours it was thought that they could not possibly live. But heroic work on the part of the physicians at River Portal resuscitated all but three. Airship for Nicaraguan War.

Barnett has handed down an opinion in which he holds that all corporations that have made increases in their capital stock over the original incorporation papers filed with the secretary of state must take out amendments to their articles and raise the amount of their incorporations, thus increasing the incorporation fee and the flat tax. What is termed by the Instructors of the Colorado Agricultural college as the most successful short course ever .-id by any school In the United States was brought to a close at Fort Collins on the Bth inst., when a public demon stration of “Tuberculosis" was given. A cow, affected with the disease, was dissected, showing the effect of the malady upon every organ. Professor W. J. Morrill, of the for estry department of Colorado College, has made public a letter from Gifford Pinchot, warmly commending the work done by it. Mr. Pinchot says: “I firmly believe the work about to be started is going to be tremendously beneficial to the cause of forestry, to the forest service ahd particularly to those members of the forest service who will attend the course." "That the Denver postoffice does a million dollar business a year is the cause for the recent raise in box rent," is the statement of Postmaster Sours at the state capital. Many of the ap plicants for boxes have been surprised to find that the box rent increased January Ist. Denver has now one of the leading postoffices In the country. The gross receipts for 1909 were over a million dollars.

Four convictions were secured during the year and the men are serving terms in the penitentiary. A box of prize apples has been shipped from Denver to President Taft at Washington by E. A. Swenson, of the Antlers' Orchard Development Company. The apples took the first rize at the apple show. They were sold at auction to Mr. Swenson, who bid $52.50, which is believed to be the highest price on record paid for a box of apples. The fruit was raised on the farm of E. A. Fleming at Silt, Colo., and is of the Winter Banana brand. The Farmers' Unions of Colorado and five other Western states are fig uring strongly on building a factory to make woolen goods from Western wool and to retail it from the chain of co-operative stores already estab lished. There are upwards of 200,000,- 000 pounds of wool produced annually in the West, and the commercial or ganizations of the West are consider ing a proposition to build a warehouse to store the bulk of the product at ‘Denver. The Burlington will break ground within two weeks for Its branch from Hudson, on its Chicago-Denver main line, to Greeley, 27 miles long. The new line will be completed within 90 days, and trains will be running from Denver to Greeley, via Burlington, by June Ist, if everything goes well. Rather than have the citizens of Sil verton pay the snow shoverels em ployed in opening the track of the D. & R. G., the railroad company paid the laborers at the rate of $3 per day instead of the $2.50 that it had prom ised them. A resume of the weather for 1909 by R. E. Trimble, observer at the ex periment station in Fort Collins, shows that in twenty-three years' rec ord there have only been two months with a colder average than December. One was in February, 1899, and the other in February, 1903.
