VIUUu ITIUMLi ® • Thursday, that’s the time. Admission 25 cts. DENVER LOCALS After many years of useful life in this community and almost a half cen tury of bard struggles for the race and humanity, Colonel Peter Joseph was called to rest last Saturday. For the greater part of a yesr he has been afflicted with Brights disease, and the end has been long dreaded. Like the strongman that he was, and the brave soldier who had done his part for his country in its darkest days, he met his fate calmly and almost with a smile. Ilis children were all assem bled in expectation 6f his fate and every comfort that they or that sym pathizing friends could give him was his to command. • The funeral was conducted from the house and Shorter Church XL n day afternoon. Abraham Line In Post G. A. U. of which he was a mem ber, conducted its services at the house. At the conclusion, especially when the flag which he loved so well wa* draped over him by lovh g hands, scarcely an eye was dry. The funer al cortege was escorted to Shorter Church by Rocky Mountain Lodge No. 2320, G. U. O. of O. F. of which he was a member, and by the mem bers of the two local .Masonic lodges under the leadership of Rocky Moun tain Lodge No I.

These all make their home at the family residence, at 2152 Gilpin St,, except Mrs. P. E Spratlin and Mrs. B. P. Johnson cf Elpaso, Texas. Rarely have all the people shown such keen regret over such an occur ence, and well they might, as without doubt, the career of Peter Josej h has been such as no other Negro in our city has had. He has held high po sitions in the government service, the greatest of which was elector ill 1870, when Hayes and Tilden were contest ing for the presidency. At that lime he showed what kind of a man he was by refusing a bribe of ?100,000tovote for Tilden. This incident was typical of bis career. He was staunch and true. He knew no compromise with what he thought to be wrong. The race is a great loser by his death both in what he would do for it and for his example. In Riverside he rests among the dead who too followed the fortunes ol their country iuthe war, — sleeping until the grand leveille when he will rise to see the glorious harvest that has come from the seeds of self sacfifice and perdstent struggle he sowed while here among us.
