Colorado people are looking for. Last

I. Hard, of Colorado, asking for the
whereabouts of a man named Daniel
31urke, who originally came from Can
ada and lived In Colorado about ten
years ago.and who Is now residing some
place In this vicinity.
While In Colorado, the letter states,
Burke and another man purchased a
claim which then proved practically
worthless. But now a syndicate wants
