The Journal Press is op timistic indeed if it can extract much comfort from the compli ments of the state press for "well nigh everyone of them has been accompanied by the declaration that Judge Collins was in no way particularly fitted to be governor and that there is no general de mand for his services in that capacity. HE Warren Sheaf thinks that the candidacy of Judge Collins will "weakenBob Dunn's chances of being nominated, they both be ing from the same district." The Sheaf should get down its blue book and study up on congres sional lines a bit. Judge Collins and Senator Nelson are from the same district and if there is go ing to be any "weakening" as a result of Collins' candidacy it seems to be up to either Collins or Nelson. "EV EN for the millions he re ceives does it pay for a man to be so utterly despised by all the people of the country as John D. Eockefeller is?" demands the Todd County Argus. Perhaps not, but we are willing to wager a little that the Argus, if oppor tunity offered, would not hesitate to put the matter to a practical test.

HELD BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. Inquiry in Opposition to Wcjod's Con firmation. Washington, Nov. 20.The inquiry of the senate committee on military affairs into the opposition to the con firmation of the nomination of General Leonard Wood to be major general in the army was begun during the day and the hearing, so far as it has .gone, was behind closed doors and in ex ecutive session. Before closing the dnorr there were exchanges of opin ion concerning the propriety of mak ing the proceedings public. MRS. NATION PRESENT. Only Incident of Interest During Ses sion of Senate. Washington, 'Nov. 20.The senate transacted no business in open sos- I sion beyond the receipt of bills and petitions. The only incident of TIE usual character was the appearance of Carrie Nation and she attracted com paratively little attention. An executive session was ordered at 12:25. At 1 o'clock the senate adjourned fnr the rinjr. MYSTERY BACK OF TRAGEDY. Double Shooting Affray at Denver Due to Old Feud. Denver, Nov. 20.Rev. Father Felix Lepore, pastor of Mount Carmel Cath olic church in this city, and Joseph Sorice of Pittsburg, Pa., who shot eacx other after a game of cards in the priest's apartments at the rear of the church, are reported to be in a dying condition. In an ante-mortem statement made to .TufU-jn Sales of the district attor ney's ott'ice Father Lepore 3aid that he believer! his assailant had been sent out to Denver for the purpose of kill ing him. Since his first conversation with Sorice, when he came to this city about a month ago, Father Lepore said he had feared the man and had that his life was in danger. Sorice to say a word either to the district attorney's representatives or to the detectives. Before coming to Denver in 1892 Father Lepore con ducted a banking business in New York, where, it is said, he failed for a considerable amount. Among the creditors, it is said, was Guiseppe Pasquel, a partner of Joseph Sorice, who came to Denver with the latter about a month and a half ago. Frank Lepore, a nephew of the priest, said that Pasquel had made a demand on Father Lepore a few days ago for $240, which he claimed the priest owed him. Young Lepore ad vised his uncle to give the men the money they demanded, but he did not do so. Tt is believed that behind the tragedy lies a deep mystery extending back to old times in Italy, which, it is feared, will never be solved because of the secretive nature of the Italians. 1903thoughtrefused Th.
