We deem it fit that this New Year above all years we should extend more than a mere formal
greeting. The disaster to the Calisher establishment last August needs but to be referred to!
What we particularly wish to bring out is the quickness with which the store again entered inlo
its own. Of course, we realize our splendid success in' our Temporary Quarters-has been made,
possible only through the loyal support of the public, to whom we now extend thanks and wish all
prosperity during the coming year.
Our plans for 1911 assume mammoth proportions. In a way, we have only partially estab
lished Stanton Street as the retail shopping district. With the completion early in the summer of
the new Calisher store it is an easy forecast that the greatest ihings that will transpire during
1911 in a mercantile way will emanate from the Calisher establishment. "

Aged Denver Man Tells of
In the summer of 1864 the Espinosas
came to Colorado. "Bad men" were
plentiful in those early days and bloody
scenes of violence frequent, but these
two Mexicans' set a new standard in the
art of murder, saj's the Denver Post.
There were two of the Espinosas a (
man in the prime of life and his t
nephew. The uncle Ifad been a mem- j
ber of the territorial assembly of New
Mexico. An American in that body had I
insulted him, and in the opinion of j
his friends, his mind became unbal
anced. Accompanied by his nephew, he I
set out to kill every American who
crossed his path. These murderers
came up into Colorado and got as far
as Middle Park. They are known to
have killed 27 men. It is thought that
more than that number of murders
committed by them never came to light.
In that same summer of 1S64 Nathan
S. Hurd. then a yourig man from the
east, was opening a mine at Mosquito, j
near the town of Fairplay, in Middle !
Park. He was one of the first men I
to encounter the Espinosas. And from j
that time he followed their trail re-1
lentlessly with the various posses un
til both men were driven out of the
country and killed. His reminiscences
of that famous man hunt are among j
the most interesting stories told by
Early in 1864 Nathan Hurd came to
Colorado from Morrisson, 111. At that
time the town of Buckskin Joe, six
miles from Fairplay, was a mining
camp of 10,000 people; today it is a
place of decaying cabins and a few
"One day in the summer of '64," Mr.
Hurd related, "I was going alone on
foot from my mining claim in Fairplay.
At a ranch not far from Mosquito I
came acros the bodies of two men in .

man, Lehmann; the other was a Ger
man boy who worked for him. They
had been shot within five minutes, for
I could see blood still running from
their wounds. I could see no living
thing in sight, but I was about as
scared as any man who ever crossed
the Missouri river. I hurried on to
Fairplay and told the people about the
"At that time no one had ever heard t-
of the Espinosas. But murders were
being committed almost every day. j
These crimes were mostly along a trail
coming up into Middle Park from the
New Mexico line. There was one
striking peculiarity about these killings
the victims were always men and
were found In pairs. There was never
just one body or more than two. This
led to an investigation by committees
of vigilantes. It was then that we be
gin to learn of the dreaded Espmosas.
Lincoln's Proclamation Saves Life.
"But less than a week after Lehmann
and his hired man were ki'lod the mur
derers came back into that same lo
cality. I rant a man numed Carter and
another chap from rhe mine f Fair
play for lumber. Right near .Lenmann's
house Carter was shot dead on the
seat of his wagon, and the other fel
low was shot and left for dead. But
this second man had carried a 'book
in the left breast pocket of his vest.
With this book was a copy of presi- i
dent Lincoln's proclamation freeing the
slaves; the two together made a thick
package. The bullet intended for his
heart struck this pocket and did notj
go through, but stunned him. When r
he came to he was able to describe the
assassins and tell the direction Vney had
"The day after this tragedy the j
brother of Col. Shoop and a man named J
Blnkley were shot dead 30 miles from
Lehrhann's place. That set the country
on fire. Capt. McCannon, Who was
mining over in California gulch where j
Leadville is now located got up a j
posse and came over to join some of j
us from Middle Park. I was one of the
Trcckins: Desperadoes. I
"On swift horses we tracked the Es j
pinosas down Into the Wet rrouiitaix
valley. They we're still killing as they '
went. Then we knew we were getting f
close to them. One morning, just al .
daylight, we came to the head of a lit- I
tie gulch, and off above the trees we
saw a thin column of smoke lifting.
We judged this was from the camp
fire of the Espinosas, and we sur
rounded the spot.
"Sure enough, the two Mexicans were
getting breakfast in a hol'ow. Capt.
McCannon ordered us not to shoot until
we were close In on the desperadoes,
but one of the boys got excited and be
gan to fire too soon. The nephew was
killed instantly, but the uncle made a
wonderful fight, and got away through
the trees and rocks. We followed him
for weeks, but got no further sight of
"Later on, the old fellow was heard,
of in the southern part of the state,
in a locality known as Grayback can
yon. Tom Tobin, a famous old Indian
fighter, went out after him; I think he
went alone. After a long hunt, he lo
cated Espinosa, and they fought a duel
to the death. Tobin killed the outlaw.
Then he cut his head off and took It to
Fort Garland, where he received the
1000 reward that the government had
offered for the Mexican. That ended
