Letter Frem a Fermer Lancasterlan A Commonwealth Grand in Her Infancy and Glorious lu Her Destiny. ROUGHING IT. A Trying Ride in a Western "Tally VLe ' A General Shaking Up. Colerado's Climate and Seil. Correspondence of the Ixtelligemjer. Kokomo, Summit county, Cel., I June 15, 1880. i " Great is Colerado ! Grand in her in fancy, glorious in her destiny ! Iler vast plains are rich meadows ; her valleys, fer tile gardens ; her towering mountains the strong box, the treasury of the Repub lic." Thus does "Mess Agate," a noted west ern writer, laud this truly wonderful state. Her future is destined te be such as can but excite the admiration of her sister states and raise the envy of the crowned heads of foreign climes. Rich in geld and silver, her mineral resources are inexhaust ible. Her fertile plains and rich mountain valleys present unusual advantages for ag riculture and stock raising. In a word, Colerado is par excellence "the " state. My last letter was dispatched you from Leadville. Since then, following in the wake of the star of the empire, I have wandered farther west, crossed the Reckies and final ly laid down my knapsack within the hospitable confines of this mountain city, Kokomo. Kokomo, second only te Leadville as a mining centre, is situate in a beautiful valley in the justly celebrated Ten Mile minint! district, en the western side, or Pacific slope of the main range of the Recky Mountains. Being yet in its in fancy, its appearance is net such as would impress the beholder with tin fact that it had any claims te beauty. The buildings, mainly the cabins of miners and prospect ors, are rudely constructed huts, though here and there an attempt at architectural beauty is made by wcathcrbearding the front, or constructing a very primitive loekiug bay window at the side. Ten mile avenue is the maiu business street. A banking house, three large hotels, and iimumerabls stores and saloons adorn this thoroughfare. "We have also three large saw and planing mills, which are utterly insufficient te supply the daily increasing demand for lumber. Our smelt er, with two mere in course of construc tion, is kept constantly at work with a full force of men smelting the rich ere, tens and tens of which are weekly being taken out of Sheep mountain. The Summit county Times, a weekly newspaper, which, with pardonable pride, displays at the head of its columns the legend, "publish ed at a higher altitude than any ether paper in the world," is our only source of news. It is ably conducted and edited by two enterprising gentlemen from Iowa. Although we have net yet reached the dignity of a church, a Sunday-school has been organized and is progressing favora bly. Situated almost en the dome of the con tinent, where the mountains generously divide their sparkling waters between the Atlantic and Pacific, eleven thousand five hundred feet above the shores of either ocean, the climate of Kokomo is at this season of the year, though somewhat cool in the mornings and evenings, in the main very pleasant. Snow remains in many places the year round ; just a step from where I am writing there is a large bank which has been there for months. Riding ever mountains is at no time the most delightful occupation imaginable, though accompanied by many various and partially pleasant incidents and adven tures. Viewing mountain scenery for pleasure is excellent pastime ; but when one, rather than adept the go-as-you-please style of pedestrianism, beards a lumber cart te cress the range and ebtaius his best and most extended views at the immi nent risk of his neck, the pleasure is te a considerable degree lessened. Leaving Leadville at eight o'clock en the morning of Tuesday, June 8, we traveled by a four-horse Concord coach ten miles northward te Chalk Ranche, a village en the side of the mountain, where we halted te change our pleasant coach for the lum ber cart above referred te and take dinner. This little village takes its name from a mountain of peculiar formation resemb ling chalk in its almost perfect whiteness. A geed, substantial meal, for which the cool mountain air had sharpened our appetites, was here disposed of; after which we climbed into our " tally he !" a Kansas farm wagon and commenced the tiresome assent, two miles and a half te the divide. These wagons are the ordinary, spring less farm wagons (here termed lumber carts) of the East ; capable of seating en the baggage and en the rough pine slabs thrown across the bed for seats, six persons comfortably ; but into ours were thrust and piled eleven solid specimens of human ity. At one o'clock, p. m., we started ; and if I may be forgiven for enduring the hard ships of that never-te-be-forgotten ride, I solemnly vow never again te attempt it. Over rocks, stones, fallen trees, stumps, into mud-holes, mountain gulches, ever snow banks, through ravines, down hill and up grade, we lumbered along ; jolting, falling, new en one side, then en the ether, pushing forward, falling backward, grasp ing one's nearest neighbor or the side of the wagon in vain attempts te preserve an upright position, until at last, eh ! what relief we were politely requested te " step down and out" and make the rest of the journey te the summit en feet. Fol lowing a well-beaten trail, made by the many who had gene before, we with snail like pace ascended these glorious old moun tains; stepping very frequently te catch breath, as in this very light atmosphere any exertion seen exhausts one. The sum mit, after many tumbles and slips, was at length reached, and well were we reward ed for our journey. Standing en the summit of the Recky Mountains, where the clear and sparkling waters of the Arkansas start en their rush ing flew te the Atlantic, and where spring the head waters of the Eagle, whose wind ing, snake-like course, carries them te the Pacific, the grandest view of hoary-headed peaks, pine-clad hills, beautiful valleys, lakes and mountain glens, rearing torrents and mountain brooks, it has ever been my supreme pleasuie te gaze upon, stretched in unbounded space before me. While waiting for the waeen te round a rocky point, I wandered ever the moun tain and accomplished figuratively what I had been told could be done literally, namely,, make a snow-ball with one hand while gathering blooming flowers with the ether. Innumerable banks and drifts of snow lay en either hand. I first made a snowball and stepping a few paces beyond culled some beautiful mountain flowers of the of the richest color and most delicate fragrance. The descent of the Pacific slope was even mere difficult and dangerous than the ascent en the ether side. I cannot accu rately describe the plunging of a horse, the snap of a spoke, the falling of a seat, driving into mud holes and snow drifts. raising ever rocks and stumps, and the various ether haps and mishaps that con tributed their quota toward making up the incidents of that journey. Suffice it te say that after a thoroughly ex citing and wearisome ride and walk of eight long hours, te accomplish a distance of less than, twenty miles, we reached Kokomo safely but very sere and tired. A single word of the mining interests and the advantages of investing capital in in this rich mineral district and I have done. The richest locations that have thus far been developed are situated en Sheep, Elk, and Tucker mountains, Geld hill, Clinten and Mayflower gulches. Particularly rich is the " Robinson mine " en Sheep moun tain. I have net yet visited this mine, but am reliably informed by Majer TV. A. Mensch, the active and energetic superin tendent of the "Lafayette" mine, that fully four millions of dollars worth of ere is new in sight. The " Wheel of Fortune " stands next in importance. With proper development results almost en a par with the " Robinson " may be expected. Other mines worthy of mention are the "White Quail," "White Fawn," "Nettie B," "Pioneer," "Mida B," "Gelden Prom Prem ise," "Little Mac," "Nerma Tunnel Sites," "Elk Mountain Prospect Tunnel Sites," and the " Lafayette," the latter being one of the most premising prospects en Sheep mountain. A vast field for successful speculation is here open for Eastern capitalists. Mines are easy of access and water and timber is veiy abundant. The prospect for a rail road extending into this camp in the fall or early winter is very favorable. Should that be accomplished, and there is no reasonable doubt that it will net, the rates for shipping ere and bullion will be consid erably decreased, and the whole district will take a boom that will astonish the world. Many interests that could new be purchased for a mere song by next sprinff will command thousands for every hun dred new asked. There is ample room for prospecting, acres of geed locations lying undeveloped. Te these of the East desir ing te invest or obtain reliable information in reference te the mineral resources of this camp, I would say that the firm of W. A. Mensch & Ce., attorneys and min ing brokers, can furnish them with accu rate knowledge of everything pertaining te minus and mining in this section. They in vitc correspondence and will take pleasurs in replying te any inquiries. Mayer Mensch, a former Pennsylvanian, is an ex perienced miner and a thoroughly reliable man. A word of politics iu this section. Ko komo is Democratic, as is the whole of Summit county. At tiie recent county con vention, held at Breckenridge, the county scat, resolutions were passed which, while pledging firm support te any candidate the national convention might be pleased te nominate, expressed a decided prefer ence for Judge Thurman ; paying a glow ing tribute te that eminent jurist, Stephen J. Field, of California, and selecting him for second choice. The nominations at Chicago arc looked upon with favor by the few Republicans in this district, but poli tics as a general subject for conversation is utterly tabooed in this camp ; individual interests in mines being the substitute. F. Heavy Experts. The expeit trade from New-Yerk has been very heavy of late, and we observe that for week before last the amount was the largest en record for any single week, amounting te $10,802,522, or $819,914 in excess of the heaviest previous total, at the commencement of last September. The principle items were breadstufis, provi previ sions, cotton, fcc, but a large increase was shown in the shipments of butter, cheese and general merchandise. As usual, the bulk went te British and Continental ports ; but the gain is net alone in that quarter, as ether countries are taking much mere steadily and extensively of American products. Since the first of January, adds the New Yerk Evening Pest, the total shipments from New Yerk amount te $177,062,246, against $145,144, 191 same period last year an increase in five and one-half months of $32,518,055, or ever 22 per cent. The English Cheese Market. The increasing demand for American cheese in England finds explanation in such items as the following, which appear from time te time in our English exchanges : At the bi-mently fair at Derby, June 1st the show of cheese was remarkably limited in all probability ten tens would cover the whole of it. Prices ranged from 70s. te 80s. per cwt. of 120 pounds. It is clear that net only arc there no old stocks in the district, but that very little "fodder cheese " has been made this spring.
