HONOR SHOWN TO A MEMBER
OF OUR RACE.
A most unusual honor has come to
a member of the race in the person
of Rev. Over, who has been chosen
by the Denver Ministers’ Association
which is composed of all the minis
ters of the city of both races, to be
one of its representatives to the next
meeting of the Christian citizens,
which is to be held in Portland, Ore
gon. The height of the honor shown
is made clear by the personnel of the
delegates, one of whom is Dr. F.
Coyle of the Central Presbyterian
church. It is needless to say that
the opportunity to be counted with
such men and as a member of such
an organization is an honor not alone
to the man, but also reflects credit
upon his race as wen.
CLERK APPOINTED.
The one piece of news that means
most to persons interested in public
matters is the employment of Mrs.
Alice D. Webb in the office of the
county treasurer as clerk. Mrs. Webb
was appointed and went to work for,
Treasurer Allison Stocker on Wed
nesday. Her appointment ’cornes as
a distinct surprise. It seems that the
Progressive club, of which Rev. T. E.
Henderson is president, P. J. Jackson
vice president and C. 'Asi wood secre
tary. has been working on the matter
and has finally succeeded in winning
the place for the race. They are na
turally jubilant, and deservedly so.

Lewis Parks has quit his position
as soda dispenser and has gone forth

his wife will live there. He is an ex

“HEART-STRINGS.”
(By Mrs. S-. S. Greene.)
In sorrow’s lonely night.
When heart-strings draw tight;
Deep sorrow’s trend is made.
Silently evening shades are laid.
In sorrow’s lonely night.
When silver cords do break;
Sunshine turns into night.
Love into fear and hate.
In sorrow’s lonely night.
When heart-strings throb and
break;
Comes the voice of the Nacarine,
Softly, pathetically and serene.
Majestic eye sublime.
Full of love compassionate divine.
Then tender threads re-unite.
Faith and love chase away the
night

TURNED LOOSE BY JURY
Captoria Frohman, the negress who
shot and killed Lula Dickerson at a
rooming house, 135 Twenty-sivth
street, on February 19, was dis
charged by Judge W. H. Reeder, fol
lowing a preliminary hearing this
morning.
After the inquest of yesterday, the
coroner’s jury, consisting of B. F.
Thomas. A. T. Hestmark and A. G.
Harris, declared that Mrs. Frohman
shot in self defense and recommend
ed that the prisoner be released.
County Attorney David Jensen, how
ever, filed information charging the
woman with murder in the first de
gree and the preliminary hearing was
held this morning before Judge Reed-,
er.
Following the order of the court
for her discharge, the friends of Mrs.
Frohman, as well as her husband, Ed
gar Frohman, rushed in to where she
was sitting, and there was an abund
ance of embracing and kissing. Mr.
and Mrs. Frohman left the station
arm in arm.
The testimony given was practic
ally the same as at the inquest yes
| terday. Mrs. Frohman did not take
the stand. Every witness who was
acquainted with the women con
cerned stated that Mrs. Dickerson
had threatened Mrs. Frohman and no
evidence was introduced to show that
the shooting was committed for any
reason except self defense.
Much time was taken over the
question of the wounds inflicted upon
Mrs. Dickerson. C. J. A. Lindquist,
the undertaker, was on the stand for
some time and described by means
of notes the location of the various
wounds to show from what direction
the shots were fired.
Henry Brown, father of Mrs. Froh
man. repeated his story of yesterday
to the effect that Lula Dickerson had
sat facing the door to Mrs. Frohman's
room for two hours before Mrs. Froh
man attempted to come into the din
ing room, and Mrs. Phyllis Lawrence,
the proprietor of the house, retold the
story of the threat made by Mrs.
Dickerson the night before in a voice
loud enough to be heard by Mrs.
Frohman in the next room.
After all testimony had been heard.
Attorney T. D. Johnson, for Mrs.
Frohman. moved for a discharge in
harmony with the decision of the
coroner's pury and he summed up the
case to bring out the idea of self de
fense.
The point contested by the county
attorney was in regard to the revol
ver in the hands of Mrs. Frohman.
He stated that there was no evidence
introduced but what showed that Mrs.
Frohman had the revolver in her
hand when she opened the door.
After summing upth e case. Judge
Reeder declared that there was no
evidence to prove otherwise than that
the woman acted in self defense and
he ordered that she be discharged

CANON CITY NEWS.
Our taxpayers of the race here are
making a strong protest against the
division of Fremont county.
Rev. Lyons, pastor of the Baptist
white church, occupied the pulpit for
Rev. Brandon Sunday night. The Dr.
also brought along his choir.
On last Friday night a home talent
minstrel was given at the opera house
for the benefit of Mt. Olive Baptist
church. The Daily Record on Satur
day made the following comment:
Moody Bruton's Superb Minstrels
surprised a large audience at the op
era house Friday night with a really
commendable production. The show
was of a home talent nature, com
posed of colored musical artists, and
was far above the average of such at
tractions. Henry Payne, the ebony
hued fun maker and clever singer and
dancer, was distinctly the hit of the
evening. His team-mate. Moody Bur
ton. did some stunts of an excellent
character. Moody organized and
trained the aggregation and deserves
credit for his work. No better choice
could have been made for interlocutor
than John Trusty, the young educated
boy employed as butler for E. D. Ip
son. The interlocutor predominates a
minstrel performance, and in this role
Trusty made good. The jokes were
all new. the chorus work fine, and the
singing good enough to listen to.
