Colorado Supreme Court Ordered a Sweeping Investigation In to the Late Election. TO OPEN DENVER BALLOT BOXES, The Registration Lists, the Campaign Expenditure and All Election Mat ters to Be Investigated. As There Are 204 Ballot Boxes It Is Evident That Several Months Will Be Consumed In Their Examination. Denver, Dec. 31. Ciretchlng .its hand so as to cast a shadow over ev ery man and woman in any way im plicated in election frauds of the city and county ot Denver on or before or after November 8, the supreme court Friday ordered an Investigation so sweeping in its scope that every phase of the election may be scrutinized and everything that bears in any way up on the election may be made known by judicial inquiry. Alva Adams, democratic candidate for governor, who appeared from the returns to havo been elected, but who has declared that he does not want the offlce tainted with fraud, asked the court to open every Denver ballot box, but the order of the court goes be yond the mere examination of the bal lots and provides for an Investigation of the registration lists, the campaign expenditures and in brief all election matters. Attorney Samuel W. Bedford, for Adams, and Attorney Henry J. Hosey, for the republicans, asked the court to make Its order of such breadth that the court need not stop at anything in the investigation. The court said that was what it meant to do and Instruct ed tho lawyers to agree upon the wording of the order and present It to the court for approval next Tuesday morning. Handwriting Experts to Be Appointed. As there nre 204 ballot boxes It is evident that several months will be consumed In the examination of their contents by tho two hundwrlting ex perts to be appointed for this work. It, is expected that the supreme court will be asked to make an order placing special watchers at the court house to guard the registration books until such time as the investigation is made. "There are probably 20,000 fraudu lent registrations on the books of the city and county of Denver," said At torney James H. Brown, the principal adviser of the republican city central committee. F. A. Williams, chairman of the re publican committee, has published the following statement over his signa ture: "Our Investigation into the conduct of the recent election In Denver has developed the fact that approximately 20,000 fraudulent votes were cast or counted for Alva Adams in this city. There Is now no reasonable doubt that Gov Peabody and the entire republic an state ticket was fairly elected on November 8, by the votes of a largu majority of the legal voters of this state." The Situation Complicated. What effect. If nny, the court's ac tion Friday will have upon the course of the legislature in respect to can vassing the vote for governor and de termining whether Peabody or Adams Is entitled to the seat has not become apparent. Chief Justice Gabbert par ticularly stated the court's Investiga tion will not be permitted In any way to interfere with any investigation that may be set on foot by the general assembly. Republicans as well as democrats admit that the opening of all the Den ver boxes complicates the political sit uation in Colorado, but believes that It means there will be no "rough house" as predicted. It was announced lnte Friday that the republican plan to unseat demo cratic senntors had been modified and that possibly only Senators Born and Healey, who were seated by tho dem ocratic majority on contests two years ago, would be turned out. It also was reported that on the evidence of Influential republicans the proposition to memorialize the United States senate to unseat Senator Tel ler would bo abandoned.
