The Mendelssohn Quintette Club.
Canon City has aright tube proud,
and her music loving citizens delight
ed, over the of last night’s con
cert. Many of our citizens who have
lived for years in the cast declare it
tc have been the best entertainment
they ever had the pleasure of attend
ing. It is impossible for us to give n
report of the diff-irent pieces that
w ere snug by that queen of song, Miss
Abide Carrington, or of the instru
mental pieces which were as near
perfeetion ns auv thiug could be im
agined, as we went to press imme
diately after the coin-crt ended, hut
each of the well-paid audience will
for years to come, sound the praise
of this well-known Quintette. To
night there will be nu entire change 1
• of programme and we feel certain !
! that every sect will agaiu be secured j
some lime before the curtain rises.
| We congratulate the peopled Canon j
; upon having received such :i musical ;
treat, ami the troupe upon favoring j
■ us with such exquisite music and al- j
h'i Mess. J as. Peabody, Lewis and i
Peckli.-ini,with being the direct means
; of accomplishing both of the above
. objects.
A Clean Town.
j Through the effort* of Mayor Boyd
i and the city council, assisted by Mess.
J Sell and Frazier, we have succeeded
in getting our town in a cleaner condi
j lion than was ever before known.
| Each of the streets and alleys have
I been carefully scraped atuf the tilth I
-hauled away in wagons; but the!
j work is only begun! It is now for
! our citizens to help to keep it so, and
not do as has been th<* rule—throw ■
into the alleys all kinds of tilth, in
eluding even the manure from stables j
uml cow sheds. If we were to give)
the uaines ol some of our busiuess
, men and prominent citizens who have
j been guilty of such dirty tricks it
i would surprise every one, except
| tlieir neighbors. We beg and plead,
that such acts are not repeated, bus
it no heed i> taken to our prayer it
will then be necessary for the city
council to puss an ordinance that will
•over liie case and see that it is en
forced, or, if they don’t want to hurt
any body’s feeling*, hire enough wag
ons and men to haul the tilth away a*
fa*** as good citizens can throw it into
* the streets slid alleys. There would
only be one object hm to the latter.
| plan and that would be the taxes
I which necessarily* would be increased.

Do Young-Kallock.
Ti c cuitnimiliou of the shooting of
j Kcv. (?) I. Kallock by Charles Dc !
Young iu San Francisco just before ,
i lie mutiicipil election last fall, wheu
Kallock iv dieted Mayor, occurred '
!at about the hour of 8 |>. in. on the
24th ot April, at which time I. M
Kallock, son ot' I. S., entered the of- j
• lice of the Chronicle newspaper, of!
which lie Young was proprietor, ami
j drawing a revolver fired live shuts at
De Young, one of which severed his
jugular vein killing him almost in*
1 stantly. The causes leading to the
1 shooting "f Kallock, Sr. by De Young
and the killing of the latter by Kal-I
luck. Jr., il ite back to some years ago :
* Khcii an liiclc appeared in a San
Fmucisco paper exceedingly abusive
| of the chat .cterot Do Young’s mother
ami sister, and which was read before
a large assemblage by Kallock last
tall ; uml al*o to the appearance in
that city, of late, of a pamphlet giv
ing a history of Kallock *.s performau
, an ccs in the east some years ago when
i he played the part of the revercud 1
| libertine in Uistmi slid *iher cities.
'The younger Kallock was probably
j inspired with a sense of vindicating -
j his family honor, and beiug tilled
i with ti e bad biood of his father, j
knew ol no other way than to appear
|in the role ol the as.-as.-in. The wrlt
ior of the article knew, several years
ago in Lawrence, Kansu-, both of the
lvallocks, and the young man was
. then a quiet, unassuming, slender ami
' rather good looking youth, reticent
in society, with many friends and tew
| enemies, Attending strictly io his bus
iness ami. withal, of a rather dreamy
i nature. Hut for the influence of Ins
| lather he would never havu gained
| the terrible notoriety of avenging a
| family honor so unenviable as that
widen cliugs, slimy and nauseating to ‘
j Ids name. To say the least Hte name ‘
| of Dc Young was sy iioiiyiii<>us with
j uiiscrupulousuc»s.KeUi»hnes> aud love '
ol power to do injury, and lie. togeth
er with Kearney and Kallock, Old as
: much as any other mail to give s*u
Francisco its wretched name for law
lessness uml debauchery. It is u tit-
I ling tribute to the sand-lot commit- i
i iiisui of tlint city that the fatal eliding
of the disgraceful quarrel should have !
hern committed by one of their mini

Rosita Correspoudence.
Editor Record ; I will endeavor
to give you a few points, from a cas
ual observation, in regard to this
camp and its surrounding!*. The min
er is very much unsettled in his mind
in regard to what be proposes to do.
He may have good prospects in his
ten foot hole, but “distance lends en
chantment to the view.** and the Gun
nison, that fabulous ianu where mil
lions arc picked up ou the surface,
trouble* ills dreams stud makes hiiu
discoid eh ted with his present out
look. Resides, irresponsible parties
are going through the county bonding
on speculation ail claims they can gel
their bauds upon, and'if they sell,
well and good, if not, they lose noth
ing and the miner, who wont work
i in ring the penning of ilie sale, has
lost his time. Prospecting' on the
Dutch tin, northeast of town, con
tinues quite lively with a very fair
showing for the amount of work '
done. The Pay well. Bottom Dollar
and Prairie Rose, which ar« deeper j
i hen others, have struck pretty fair,
mineral, carry well in silver and •
some gold. The Havilah Mining Co. j
of Kansas City, arc working more
meii ut.d making more improvements j
than any company in the surround
ing country. (/They have started a
town on the hill above Bajssickyille
and arc fast finishing one of the most
substantial hotels iu the county/? The
Missouri lutiuel, the property they
arc now developing, is in over two
hundred and fifty !*••«» wivti a winze*
eighty leet ifoep. Ou sule the mouth j
; of the tunnel they are sinking a very |
j expensive shaft, nicely timbered, i
1 which is now down near one hundred .
l feet, ami from which they intend ruu- j
| niug a level under the tuunel, strik- !
ing the winze. They will have their
engine and bolster up in a few days.
Speaking of machinery, it is aston
ishing how rapidly the old whim is
being superceded by steam power,
and now the sound of the whistle is ;
heard iu ilia land (rom all points of i
the con pass, telling us i hat capital j
has lakcu hold and that deep mining, !
so essential to this camp, is about to j
commence. The Fraulciiu, Dertgo ;
and Nemcha. near the Bassick, are I
working a full lorcc of men. The
former company are sinking on their |
ih*w strike, sacking ore, and from 1
preseut indications it seems to widen
i out with prospects of being n tremen
dous body ol mineral. The Nemelia
is a tuunel running into the hill abmg
j side of ami parallel to the Bassick.
| She has a boulder formation ami is
now taking oil l good looking selcuile.
I The Leavenworth,Chieftain and E*-t
1 Laviaitiau belong to a eouipany ot ;
I IMieladelphia capitalists under the;
! management ol Mr. Donuetly. They ■
t have steam bolsters oil ail, aud have
; recently opened up on the former
i property a veiu of gray copper, eigh-
I (ecu inches wide, ruuniug from oue
! hundred to twenty-two liuuJrcd
' ounces. They have a large amount
of high grade ore ready for shipment
' iri tu their mines, and wlicu they
S commence to put iu the market there
; will he a very material di fie re nee in j
! I he out-put of this camp. From pres
ent indicationt in the Leavenworth,
and if site continues to hold oui. she
will uudouhtediy be the best miue in
, Southern Colorado. One good result
has happened from Mr. Donnelly's ud
veut into this cainp. He and his
. company are here expressly to work
property aud take out aud sell the
I mineral contained in them. Such
people deserve the gratitude of all
who are interested in the welfare of
our mines, whilst wo should not lies
: itate to condemn and denounce the
inuliifcrous fraud* that are collecting
together prospect holes and stocking
; t hctu at millions.

M. E. Sunday School Concert.
TheMcthodist church was crowd
ed last Sunday evening to listeu to a
1 concert given by the Sunday School
lu behalf or the missionary cau*c.
The programme was varied and in
teresting. Essay# "were read by Mrs.
Gardner, whose theme was “India;**
by Mias Shultz, who told of “China”
mid her teeming millions and by W.
R. Fowler, who Illumined the “Dark
Con tin en»,” showing the possibilities
of a glorious future for Africa and
her sons. Master Charles I'errier
6pokc a humorous declamation about
“Get aud Give.” “2Cot to Myself
Alone’’was the subject of a recitation
by Miss Doud. Bessie Bowlby spoke
i very sweetly a little poem entitled
i ••Alina.” A class of ten girls, under
the supervision of Mrs. Ailing, neat
ly rendered an interesting concert
piece. Miss Mary Ripley told, in
rhyme, of the church spider who
was unmolested because he chanced
to spin Ills web across the contribu
tion box. A reading was given by
Miss Nellie Ailing, the lesson of
which was that as God is never weari
ed by our coming to Ilim for the bles
sings that we need, so we should
uever tire of the demands lie makes
upon us for the advaucemciil of His
cause. All of the exercises were of
a missionary character and were in
terspersed with appropriate singing
by the school and congregation .
Canon City a Dead Town.
Wc hear a certain class ot' men who
never own a dollar's worth of prop
erty :n aU) r»'«■*•«». complain that
Canon City is a dead town. 'These
same men acknowledge when yon
corner them, that there arc a good
many thousand dollars worth of
goods shipped aud sold by our mer
chants every day, and that the resi
dences and store* are all occupied and
noue for rent, but they complain that
there is no cxcilciucut on the streets.
We must acknowledge that the days
of street excitements, drunken men
hauled to jail every live minutes,
ilruukeu women driving around
town, confidence thieves robbing
strangers, etc., arc over, and it is well
;f- r the tow u that it is so. There is
! only one man out of a hundred that
ever makes a dollar out of such
crowds, it looks for awhile as though
everybody was getting rich during
the excitement, but before the “hur
rah crowd*' skips out for the next
railroad terminus town, the holiest
citizens, who felt as though they were
! making so much money, tin l that
j these gamblers and women have be
] come just well euough acquainted to
! get goods on credit, and the amount
; due by them might as well he wiped
j out, as ii ran never be collected. In
; litis way all the profits earned ami
; some oi the capital has been cousigu
-1 ed to the siuKing fund, never to rise
1 again. A few of our short sighted
citizens followed the crowd to Lu
; Vegas, hoping to make up what they
j had lost, or add to what they had
I made, but in nearly every case we
! hear of them as repeutiug of their
• move, having lost all the money they
i took with them, or still worse, liav
| i;ig fallen into the habits of the peo-
I pie out of whom they hoped to grow
rich. Canou Oily to-day, ulthough
1 not a town of excitements, is in as
• prosperous condition us any ton u of
J its size in the State.
The buildings that are being •reel
ed are in many cases being built of
I brick and are of u substantial charae
j ter, and eveu the casual observer cau
l see that the owner iutcuds to remain
j here, aud is putting considerable
money into such luxuries and coui
lorts as grass plats, fruit trees. v dies,
; shade trees*, vegetable garden*, berry
patches, fountains, ei . Beside out
l<audsi»me stone school bouse, a hicU
is nearly completed, we have been
assured that the success of our water
• works is u fixed fact, the delays hnv
! iiig been of a nature that did not
cripple, but rather help the project
all J that before the summer goes by
we will be supplied with water good
enough for any one to drink. Al
i though there are iuuu> C.-nonites who
