To The Newspapers of Colorado.
From the Loadville Herald.
A fellow calling himself J. W.
Kylo, pretending to hail from Haiti*
more, Maryland, is victimizing the
newspaper press of Colorado. lie
came to Leadville from South Pueblo
where he pretends he had interests in
the Banner.
Last week he was employed on the
Commercial Boom, of this city, aud
it he had proved honest, would have
had a good position on that paper,
lie is a good canvasser and in two or
three days obtained a large amount
of advertising.
The proprietor advanced him money
for current expenses and in every re
spect treated him kindly. On Satur
day evening ho collected every dollar
from thirty-three advertisers, aud on
Sunday skipped the town. A war
rant has boeu issued tor his arrest.
Ho is about twenty-five or thirty
years of age, thick set. about five teet
ten inches high, with chin whiskers
and moustache, thick neck and full,
protruding eyes. He is dressed iu
dark clothing and black hat.
It is possible that he has victimized
the railroad companies and has passes
over the different roads ou the
strength of his newspaper connec
tions, and that he will attempt his
little game ou other papers of Colo
rado.
At the request of the proprietor of
the Commercial Boom this is pub
lished for the information of other
publishers, to whom he is likely to
apply for work.
Auy information respecting his
whereabouts will bo thankfully re
ceived by the publishers of the Com
mercial Boom, of Leadville. Telo
graph them at their expense. As a
protection to other publishers of this
state this favor is done them, and
papers throughout the state will do
good service to the press iu copying
this notice*
Our Opinion.
IVe believe the inaugural address
of President Garfield will compare
favorably with auy document of that
kind ever delivered to the American
people. It is conservative, yet strong
in all that is of importance to the cit
zeus of the west and to the citizens
of the sooth. We judge from the
tone of his address that the western
industry of silver mining will receive
its proper recognition in his mes
sages to congress, and we do not be
lieve he will exercise his powers
against the fair competition of silver
with gold as a standard of value in
the monetary affairs of this govern
ment. lie speaks strongly against
the practice of polygamy in Utah by
the Mormon church, and we do not
doubt but he will suggest to congress
stringent measures for its suppres
sion. He says, “the free enjoyment
of equal suffrage is still iu question
and a frank settlement of the issue
may aid in its solution. It Is alleged
that iu many places the negroes are
practically denied the freedom of the
ballot. Iu so far as the truth of this
allegation is admitted it is answered
that in many places an honest local
government is impossible if the mass
of uneducated negroes are allowed to
vote. These are grave allegations.
So far as the latter is true it i 3 the
ouly palliation that can be offered for
opposing the freedom of the ballot.
A bad local government is certainly
a great evil which ought to be pre
vented, but to violate the freedom
aud sanctity of suffrage is more tnan
au evil. It is a crime which, if per
sisted in, will destroy the govern
ment itself. Suicide is not a remedy.
It in other lauds it bo high treason to
coinpass the death of a king, it should
be counted no less a crime here to
strangle our sovereign power and
stifie its voice. It bos been said that
the states responsible for this unset
tled question have no care for the
repose of the nation. It should be
said with the utmost emphasis that
this question of suffrage will never
give repose or safety to states or to
the nation until each within its own
jurisdiction makes aud keeps the bal
lot free aud pure by the strong sanc
tion of the law.” We think the meas
ures he will suggest for the enforce
ment of equal suffrage in the south
will be of a firmer character than
those of his predecessor in office, yet
of a kiud which will not be offensive
to the majority of voters throughout
the Uuiou. lie believes iu the Mon
roe doctrine, as we believe every true"
American citizeu does, the right to
supervise aud control any iuter
oceau canal across the isthmus be
tween North and Sonth America.
We may look for a thorough protec
tion of our industries in the construc
tion of that . anul. by bis ad minis tra
i more than once asserted, is a states
man of sound judgement and iuteg- ,
ritv, and fully competent to under- |
take the great task imposed upon .
him. His term of office need not, nor
do we believe it will be, one of sur- |
prises or excitements, for the times
demand nothing of that kind, but
that it will result for the good of the
whole country we have no doubt.
We have the utmost contidence in his
ability and in the ability of the gen
tlemen whom he has selected for cab
inet officers.
In our opiuion Rutherford B.
Ilayes made a better president than
could have been expected under the j
circumstances. The reasons are plain .
to be seen. He took possession ot |
that office in a time of turmoil, finan
cial distress, political bickerings in
his own party, determined opposition
aud a lar<fe popular majority in the
democratic party, a congress that
was democratic iu both branches and
republican leaders iu both senate and
house who were either indifferent to
the success of his policy or opposed
to it. His very first administrative
act, however, placed him at once iu
the coutidence of the ; cople, and he
had the wisdom to select for the chief
places in his cabinet men with al
ready national character ami known
ability. During his four years as
the executive head of the govern
ment the credit of this couutrv be
came the best of any nation iu the
world; specie payments were resum
ed and iu consequeuce of that resump
tion the dormant industries of the
L'uion were awakened iuto active
life, the energy of business was re
vived and thousands of rusty wheels
were brightened by contact with
labor in our factories. Everywhere
men have been able to live substan
tially and iu many places where pov
ertv was the rule luxury has reigned.
To be sure the west has uot gained
all it asked for and for some reasons,
of uo consequeuce now, we believe
Mr. Hayes made a bluuder in exercis
ing his powers of veto to the exteut
he did. Ho will uot go down into
history as one of the great presidents
of thc United Slate®, but will bo re
membered as an honest one, conscion
tious as to his duty, true to his coun
try ami honorable to his party.
We arc of the opiuion that Presi
dent Garfield has selected a good cab
inet. We cauuot agree with some of
our contemporaries that it is not near
as well selected as tho cabinet ot
President Ilayes, aud that the meu
are comparatively unknown, with the
exception of Blaine. Wc believe there
are few people outside ot locality
who ever heard of Richard W.
Thompson, David M. Key or Charles
Deveus, of President Hayes’ cabiuet,
uutil they were elevated to that posi
tion, while William H. Hunt is the
only unknown man to tho country lu
President Garfield’s cabinet. James
G. Blaine has been lu public life siuce
1839, serviug four yearn as a member
of the legislature of Maine aud in the
3sth, 39th, 40th, 41st, 43ud and 43rd
cougresses, lu the three latter as
speaker ol tho house* elected to the
44th congress aud then appointed
(lulled States senator anil afterward*
elected to the place, lie has been
twice a protuiiieut republican candi
date for president, drawing a largo
portion of his popularity from the
west, lie Is an "cmSau luaii with
KO. 11
western ideas,” an eminent states
man and wise diplomat, and always
inspires confidence in whatever posi
tion he may be placed. Wiliiatri Win
dom has been a member of the honso
of representatives in the 36th, 37th#
38th, 39th and 40th congresses, was
sent to tlie senate in 1870 and has held
thatseat ever since, lie was not ait
unpopular candidate for the presi
dential nomination before the Chica
go convention. He has imbibed
many of the western ideas of money
and liis appointment most, from this
reason, be satisfactory to the west.
It is a healthy sigu to sec Wall street
brokers intimidated by the selection
of a secretary of the treasury. Sam
uel J. Kirkwood has been in public
life since 1856 continuously, in tho
legislature of lowa, as governor of
that state in 1859,.in 1861, and in 1875.
He was first sent to the United States
senate in 1866 and again in 1876,which
seat he has since held. He was the
“war governor” of lowa and his ear
ly settlement in the west. 1855, has
made him familiar with the Indian
question, and we have reason to think
his Indian policy will be somewhat
different from that of his predecess
ors, at least widely differing from
that of Schurz. R bert Lincoln was
a well known and popular attorney
at law in Chicago, and that bis name
is Lincoln, will iuspire confidence iu
his ability to- conduct the affairs of
his department successfully. Wayne
McVcagh is known as an independ
ent, republican politician iu Pennsyl
vania, opposed to the “ring” and an
able lawyer. He was one of the re
publican commissioners to Louisiana
during the famous presidential con
test iu 1877. Thomas James, of New
York, has beeu postmaster of that
city for several years, and is particu
larly fitted for the postcffice depart
ment. His executive ability is very
great and bis comprehensiveness of
detail is large. lie lias made the New
York City postoffice the best iu the
world and if that department of the
government is not upon a better
basis than ever before when he gives
it lip it will be no fault of his. Wil
liam 11. Hunt is not much known,ex
cept that he is a native republican of
Louisiana, aud to be a native aud a
republican in that state indicates a
considerable force of character. Wo
believe that President Garfield’s
selection ot these men as advisors
will prove to be a wise one.
Another Judge Appointed.

The thirty-eighth annual report of
the Mutual Life Insurance company
of New York, printed in another col
umn, like all the reports that have
preceded it. shows the continued
prosperity and growth of this corpor
ation. It is now, as it has been for
many years, the largest and strongest
life insurance company in the world.
Its assets are £91,735,786 ; surplus
over $11,000,000 ; amount of policies
in force over $300,000,000; income
over $17,000,000; and amount paid
to policy holders last year $13,100,694.
And in all our financial revulsions no
suspicion has ever fallen upon the
solveucy of this company; and while
other companies may have flouudered
iu the mire of catch phrases to beguile
the tin wary, the Mutual Life has
steadily adhered to its original plan
of affording the largest amount of in
surance at the least price consistent
with safety and with the best inter
ests of its insured. Each succeeding
statement shows the wisdom of the
reduction of premium rates inaugur
ated by this company, benefiting
old as well as new policy holders.
The governor of Minnesota has ap
pointed ex-Secretary Ramsey to till
