Monument is excited over the postmastership. The late John M. Duffy was barely buried before the factions went to war over his successor. His wife, Mrs. L.C. Duffy, who is also editress [sic] of the Monument Recorder, has filled the place of deputy for a long time and in a very acceptable manner. She is a candidate for the place and has the support of a large number of the leading citizens of El Paso county. It is understood that she also has the favor of Senator Teller. Mrs. Duffy is a woman of high character, ability and refinement and is deserving of the appointment on many considerations.
