Yesterday's Denver Tribune conta'ns the fol! owing in reference to Tabor's Mi- 'sernia deal on Wai. street: !"T.ie Xin ng -lecorc of t,ie 5th contains a. sharp ec.to- rial growl over certain alleged transactions by Governor Tabor in I-Iibernia stock. The gist of it is taat TaDor unloaded u-/on tae lambs of Wall street instead of al.ow- ing them to un.oad upon him, as they did when Caryso.ite threatened to go gipsy- ing. Tae facts appear to be ;hat 1-Iibernia aas been a good mine--in spots, at different times--and when the spots were up the reporters mace the most of the circumstance to tickle the ho! ders Q-" the stock. When tae governor wen: east i: may have been one of his p^rooses to come back with as little I-Iibernia about his person as the state o" the market wou a tjermit. It is also suggested that W. H. Bush's mission there was of much .he same nature. At all events the fac:s remain taatTa^or- Bush have realized taeir money and tha: Xew Yorkers bagged tae experience --and the mine. There is, perhaps, a good deal of pocketyness about both ends of the scheme. "Underlying this transaction, the care» ful observer wL, see tae shade of an intuition on .abor's part to get even with "some of taose saarpers" in Wai,- and Xew streets, who let off that Chrysolite nitro-glycerine cartridge under aim iast fa'.,.. If he has succeeded, no one here will blame him. When the Hecorc 'commands him "to purge himself publicly of complici:y wita i!l-looking opera :ions in :he stock of I-.ibernia, and also o~ allegations in the same connection taat directly a*"ect his personal as well as ais business honor," the ciances are tnat tae pause between the order and its execution wi.l be long and exasperating. When they shinned Tabor out o-" a mi-lion in Chry so- li :e, he said never a word, anc no one could have to! c -"rom. anything he said or did that his composure was in the slightest degree ru.Tec. He didn't go w .lining about, asking those fellows to give the money back, but Just pocketed the corner, settled up the best way lie could anc patiently bicec his time. It may have oeen taat he thought the .ane rnig.i: have a :urning by · and Dy i-" oje looked out for it, anc it is barely -Dossible taat it was found at ne liibernia crowing.
