probably their absence which caused
Senator Stewuit. who took pait in the

their national conventions, unless one

diver plank in their platform, whii.li is
not regarded as probable. The popu

dining the rate war between tiaus

Fanniiigton apples ale of superior
qualitj, their pi ice must be sufficiently
low to compete with the eastern
oioduct in thise maikets, or they can-
not lie sold. The D. & R. G. railroad
companj has made a rate of 60 cents
per' bundled on these apples from
Durango to all of the poiuts afore
mentioned, and has done everything in
its power to create a demand for them
but it seems that holders of apples
hem cannot put a pi ice on them which,
with the freight added., will place
them on the niatket at a prafit. The
questiou is, will it pay to hold on until
a better pi ice can be bad, or the apples
rot? It seems to us that a trood ulan
