THE BIS MOINESi ALGONA* IOWA, WEDNESDAY, MAHOH 21, 18918 AIL QUIET IN DMVEB SlfUAflON PfiACTtCALLY UNCHANGED. A rentable Settlement 01 the trouble Now Seems likely—I'lio Gothrnofn Sntilty Cnllecl In Question—1'ollco Still Hold City 11 nil. DENVER, Colo., March 17—Avmett peace reigned in Denver yesterday. A grout deal of excitement still exists. Gen. McCook and the federal troops are still here and they will remain •until all danger of rtot and bloodshed is over. Gen. MeOook will simply confine himself to maintaining the public peace. The city was comparatively quiet at 8 o'clock in the morning, all hostilities having been suspended awaiting the result of the conference between Gen. McCook, commanding the government WAITE. troops, and Gov. Waite and his advisers, which was to take place at !i o'clock Five companies of the Seventh United States Infantry •were encamped .lit the Union 'depot, ready to move on the city hall at a moment's notice should the governor request him to do so. The militia were withdrawn from around the city hall, and the streets leading to the building were almost deserted. The police force, greatly re-enforced, •was still under arras at the city hall. It was understood their fighting force numbered about ;t50 men. At 8:30 o'clock the militia guard at Douglas place, where Gov. Waite resides, was recalled to the armory, and for .the first time since 4 o'clock Thursday afternoon the building was left unprotected. Shortly afterward his excellency left for the executive chambers, but refused to discuss the situation further-than to say that he would like a consultation with Gen. McCook of the United States « army at 10 o'clock. The conference, which was held in the presence of no other person, lasted but a short time, and it is understood was exceedingly peppery, the governor being very angry because (Jen, McCook refused to aid the governor in his purpose to seat the new commissioners, but confined himself to dispersing the crowd and maintaining the peace. At the termination Pf the interview the governor sent ,G/en. McCook a letter in which ho withdr/evy Jiis request to Hen. McCook to leave Denver with 1/hv federal (troops, All of the city offices were open for business in the morning, but there was little going on, A f»w policemen **wei i e sent out oil patrol duty, but most of the force was-continued on guard in the basement of the city hall. It was decided at ]0:,10 last night to gubmit to the Supreme court the question from tho governor whether or not he has the right to remove and appoint members of the fire and police board. Tills would seem to assure a 'peaceful solution of the trouble that has stirred Denver during the last few days. The governor premised to withdraw his forces and the new police board was to be given a room in the city hall in which to organix.e the old board to keep its present quarters and exercise its usual powers at least until the court had passeu on the matter. At 11:30, however, Chief of Police Stone received an intimation that the governor meditated a raid before morning in spite of the agreement. Kifty officers with riiles and shotguns were at once posted in the dark building and notice sent the sheriff. Later the chief began massing 1 his forces in the city hall in much larger numbers. There has yet been no apparent movement on the part of the governor to aeain order out the militia, but Game Warden Callicott has sworn in 150 deputies, who under the state law have the powers of deputy sheriffs to guard the governor and do his bidding. A meeting of prominent citi/.eus was held in Judge Yeainans' office, at which the question of the governor's sanity was seriously discussed. At H-.AO the meeting adjourned until morning. If it is decided to procure a lunacy inquiry affidavits will be filed with Judge Le ifttvro of the County court, who will issue an order and it will become the duty of the sheriff to Arrest the governor and hold him for » jury trial. The governor's office is guarded by personal friends, heavily armed, and his house is similarly watched »t night. His friends ridicule the ideij. that he is insane. Gen McCook says there is no doubt that had ft S ua been, fired Thursday the governor would have been lynched w|thin half-an hour, to the state'slast- iog- disgrace. Gen. McCook says he. h#s the United States troop* here only tp protect public property, and they wilt remain in tovm until the excite- jnjeijt is over, especially since there is $ large nnajber of desperate^ wen la tows rp4y to foment rio$*so £6 tp . The governor has hot ordered tho outside militia to come to Denver, but they arc under orders and drawing pay. lie lias instructed livery stable men to have 100 horses ready for his use to-day. This strange order has added to the general uneasiness. Tlic old board holding the city hall says it will defy the whole state militia, which can not muster much over 800 men. The slate troops at Durango, Boulder, Colorado Springs, Grand Junction and other centers have been uniformed and under arms all day, ready to take special trains to Denver, and the state troops in this city have been on call. Exciting reports have been flying all over the state. Many people regard the governor's military demonstration as a big bluff to show his contempt for Judge Graham's injunction and compel the judge, if possible, to arrest him. Gen. MeCook has removed the troops f rom ; the, Union depot to the Gettysburg building on Champa street. There they wiil remain until further orders. Sheriff Burchincll sent the following telegram in the afternoon to Secretary of War Lament at Washington: "I am quite able to maintain peace here unless tho militia of the state is used against me. Nobody but the governor is seeking to disturb the peace and lie is acting in contempt of the District court of this county.' 1 Twenty prominent citizens also sent a long message to the Colorado delegation in congress reviewing tho situation, and asking that the federal troops be not removed, us bloodshed and destruction of property would surely follow. Gov. Waite appears to entertain some fear for his life. His house was guarded by a detachment of the state militia, and no one was allowed to enter until after his business had been stated and the executive given his consent to sec the visitor. The present conflict has been brought about by the friction which has existed between the governor and the people of Denver and of Arapahoc county, in which Denver is located, icver'since he came into office. He owed his election to the populist vote in the rural districts and small towns of the state. He came into office with a strong prejudice against him in Denver. Two months ago lie removed two members of tho police board. The case was carried to tho .Supreme court, which held that the governor had not exceeded his authority. The two deposed members thereupon yielded and Jackson Orr and 1). J. Martin were appointed instead. Later the governor deposed both of them on tho charge that they were protecting the gambling houses and appointed S. D. Barnes and Dennis Mullins. Orr and Jackson, however,rei'used to vacate and obtained an injunction from Judge Graham of the District court, restraining, the governor and the new members from taking possession of the office, the court holding that the governor could appoint, but in case of resistance could not induct his appointees into office, that power remaining in the judiciary; that is to say, if resistance was made it would be necessary to take the proper proceedings in court to obtain possession. The governor, however, ignored the injunction and on Wednesday night called upon the First regiment of tho state militia to assemble, following up this action Thursday by orders to march on the city hall and take it by force if necessary. The police and fire departments, in the meantime, had prepared to hold the city hull, by force of arms, and the entire police forces was placed. on duty at the building, In iidcii- tion to several hundred of the tough citizens of Denver, with records as man-killers, had been svyorn in by Sheriff Burehinall as deputy sheriffs to re-enforco the police. Tho members of the lire department are also armed and have lilies of hose laid throughout the c\^' 1'JiH. To complete the features of this condition of civil war the surgical department of the city is prepared to take care of the wounded in case of conflict. WASHINGTON, .March Hi. — General M'cl'ook telegraphed army headquarters hero that Gov. Waito had applied for the use of I'nitcd Slates troops. He had taken the troops to Denver und transmitted the application of the governor to tho department. It has not yet been laid before Secretary Lu- mont, who must in turn submit it to tho 1'resident before action can be taken on the. governor's request. Hunk OWrors Inilitleil.
