Denver. March 518.—Probably
fifty buildings of all sorts were
unroofed by yesterday's wind-
storm. About midnight a por-
tion of the rear wall of the Lit'-
dell house was blown in. The
guests were previously warned
of the danger and escaped in-
jury. The exposition building
was jiartially unroofed. A
young man named Wood struck
oy a falling wall on 28th and
Curtis streets was extricated in
an unconscious condition and
will ltrobably die. A coach

the track, near Fleming a sub-
urban station, nnd one )H rson

to unanimity in tlic selection of
a candidate by a nominating
convention, the wore fully is
the popular will reflected and
the popular choice uiore certain-
ly presente0 to the people for

8. The greater the vote by
which tly* nominee io chosen the
less eiicouragenieut given to
malcontents and mutineers in
the party.
4. As it requires more "wire-
pulling," bargaining, trading
und packing to control two
thirds of the delegates to a con-
vention than to manipulate a
bare majority, the cltancen un-
der the two-thirdN rule for the
succeos of such methods are
firoiMii'tionally diminished both

Early in the morning of the

ford, struck the hot trail of -
fox. Mr. Wurdwell recently-
refused to take $100 for this
hound. Toward noou, after a
long, hard chase, the fox and
hound were seen running along
the railroad track near Mount
RoekyChurck. The ruiuble of
a coming train was heard. As
soon as tlm locomotive swung
round t% curve the fox seemed
to give out. "The poor fox,"
said the enginwr, "could hard-
ly drag one leg alter the other.
It staggered along a few yards
and then fell all inalieap.quiv-
