Patterson as Absolute Dictator of the Al- lied ]Forces Opposing RepublicanS--The New Revenue Bill. Denver, Feb. 23.--The determination of Senator-elect Patterson to be the ab- solute dictator of his party--or rather of all his parties--has been asserted in the most definite and spectacular manner in the matter of the Rush bill for the consolidation of a part of Arap- ahoe county with the city of Denve~r. After a long speech by Senator Clay Whitford, in which he declared that the bill proposed no less than eleven amendments to the constitution of the state, and was clearly unconstitution- al in many respects, the Senate agreed, by a unanimous vote, to submit the measure to the Supreme Court of the state ior an opinion upon its constitu- tionality. Mr. Rush himself, the os- tensible author of the party that the News and Post will not support him if he is nominated. It is natural that there should be these symptoms of Unrest, especially among Democrats who have been Democrats right along, while Patterson was ca- vorting with Waits and the Populists; but the senator will probably be able to whip them all into line as soon as he is fairly seated in Washington. A more important measure even than the Rush bill is the revenue bill which is now pending in the House. More than 200 amendments to it have al- ready been proposed; but even yet the effect of its passage may be estimated from the following interview with President Frank Trumbull of the Colo- rado & Southern railroad, wko was asked, what the prospects are for an extension of his road up the Platte canon to Cripple Creek, spas to give: made the a short line to Denver: COLORADO NOTES.
