' One of tho provost marshal's first acts was to cause the arrest of J. W. Mitchell, a reporter for tho Donver' Times, thereby establishing a press censorship. It seems that he instructed Mitchell not to send out certain pieces of news. It was sent as a private note to the paper, and for this Mitchell was ar rested and tho military authorities re fuso to release him. There is already a clash, as it is asserted martial law has not been formally declatcd, and tho right of the provost marshal, to ar rest and hold people without warrant of law will bo tested. Ono of the men arrested will be re leased on bonds by Judge Owers.. Tho military oillcials declare that If he is released he will be Immediately rearrested. If this is done u warrant will bo Issued out of Judge 0wer's court for tho provost marshal, who will bo arrested and brought beforo tho judge, and tho prisoner will bo pro duced by a writ of habeas corpus if necessary.
