Western Newspaper Union News Service. Denver—Fifty-six delegates from various districts of Colorado answered to the roll call at the state conven tion of the Knights of the Maccabees, which opened at the Maccabee Tem ple in this city. At the first session addresses of welcome were given by Governor Carlson in behalf of the state, and Mayor J. M. Perkins, speaking for the city. J. D. Wright of the District Court, one of the oldest Maccabees in the state, and former Gov. E. R. Harper responded. Dr. L. E. Sisler, supreme record keeper of the grand lodge in Detroit, presented greetings from headquar ters and congratulated the state or ganization upon its record. Speaking of Colorado, he lauded the climate, sunshine and spirit which he believed responsible for the success of any venture in the state. In the election of officers which fol lowed J. A. Griffin of Denver was elected supreme representative and state commander by the unanimous vote of the convention. The other officers are as follows: Lieutenant commander, J. R. Reidy of Pueblo; state record keeper, H. S. Peregrine of Denver; state chaplain. A. J. Recht of Arvada; master of arms, W. M. Hilderbrand of Cripple Creek; sergeant-at-arms, J. A. John son of Rocky Ford; first master of the guard, W. E. Graham of Del Norte; second master of the guard, G. L. Moffatt of Denver; state cent!- nel, Ben Rea of Canon City; state picket, H. C. Pratt of Fort Collins. Cripple Creek Output Totals $4,250,000 Denver. —When the Cripple Creek district was visited by 300 capitalists and miners the last three days of Feoruary—to celebrate the remark able gold strike in the Cresson mine— it was estimated the year's gold out put of the camp would be $18,000,000, compared with $12,000,000 in 1014. For January, February and March, 1915, the Cripple Creek samplers re turned $5,000,000 as the result of fire assay tests. Allowing fifteen per cent for sampling and metallurgical losses this means $4,250,000 for the quarter and $17,000,000 for the year, from a fire assay, or actual output of $20,- 000,000. The sampling at metallurgi cal loss was placed at twenty per cent In 1913 and at seventeen per cent in 1914. This year the percentage of smelting ore is increased from five per cent of the total in 1913 to eight per cent in the first quarter of 1915. For last year—owing to rich ore in deep levels —it was seven per cent, leaving ninety-three per cent to be handled by the local mills and by the large plants at Colorado City, where a light roast is used. As fresh ore strikes are a matter of daily occur rence the camp may be relied upon to make good this $18,000,000 estimate and this means $18,000,000 at the mines, not at the Cripple Creek samplers. W. B. Slaughter Freed on Bond. Pueblo. —W. B. Slaughter, president of the defunct Mercantile National Bank of Pueblo, was released from the county jail on a $40,000 bond signed by the United States Fidelity and Guarantee Company of Baltimore.

Returns from 1,400 precincts out of 1,566 indicated that he had carried the entire Republican ticket to victory. Women voted for the first time at a mayoralty election in Chicago and incomplete returns showed that the relative percentages of men and women votes received by Thompson and Robert Sweitzer, the defeated Democratic candidate, were approxi mately the same. About eighty-five per cent of the 760,000 votes registered were cast. Ac cording to election officials this would set a record. Wards hitherto considered strongly Democratic were carried by the Re publican candidate, and Sweitzer’s own precinct In the heart of one of the West Side Democratic strong holds, was carried by Thompson. Sweitzer and bis managers con ceded the election to the Republicans early last evening and left their head quarters. Before going home, Sweitzer sent his successful rival a telegram in which he said: “Congratulations on your victory; it was conclusive.” Mud slinging that was rampant throughout the campaign gave way to cries of “fraud” and illegal vot ing. Just before noon a sensation was caused when State’s Attorney Hoyne’s “flying squadron” swooped down on a gathering in the First ward —the famous “Hinky Dink” Kenna’s bailiwick —and arrested a man wearing a Sweitzer badge. The police say they found 1,000 one-dollar bills in the man’s pockets. He gave the name of George Smith. Attor neys for Sweitzer appeared immedi ately before Judge Gibbons, who granted a writ of habeas corpus, and set the case for immediate hearing. The conclusion of the campaign was marked by appeals to racial and re ligious prejudice. The indications were that the next Council would be thirty-three Demo crats, thirty-one Republicans, two Progressives, three Independents and one Socialist. MAYOR AND 26 FOUND GUILTY.
