porter’s dirty fling at M. N. Megrue

paper any good, nor will it lower
i Mr. Megrue in the estimation of his

j Salida Mail: The Pueblo delega-
I tion to the C. C. C. C. played it fine.
I They sent two of their number up as
‘an advance guard. Those two re-
I ported a slim attendance, and then
Pueblo came up in force. Had they
reported a large attendance the Pue

Ily too busy to attend. There is noth

City labored very hard and in good
faith for the success of the late con
i vention and is disappointed at the re
sult of it. It will still have the solid
support of Fremont and Custer coun-

j there is a precedent for putting the
! capital in the same city as the peni

i Salida Mail: It was amusing to
| note the attitude of the Colorado
Springs delegation to the Canon City
capital convention. They walked in
timidly and took seats on the very
bock row of benches, and when it
was proposed to elect Steele secre- |
tary of the convention he got up and j
said he was not. in fac», present ; that
he was there bodily but not spiritu
ally ; that they only wanted to con
fer and not do anything. But he was
elected, and his body waltzed up to
the secretary’s desk while his spirit
was soaring around near the base of
Pike’s Peak. And theu by and by
Ssgeiidorf’s body arose and stated
that his spirit was, so far as the C. C.

Greeley Chronicle: The Pueblos,

each organized under their own city

the bitter spirit of rivalry which ex

that they are not “a happy
Consolidated and united, it is highly '
probable that Pueblo might carry off
the glittering prize, but divided,
with no possible hope of an amicable j
union, the Pueblos, with all their

Silver Cliff Prospect: Yesterday
morning, Oct. 6th, about half past
one o'clock Mr. J. V. R. Spencer, an
old and prominent citizen of Silver
Cliff, came to his death in a very sod*
den manner. All will remember the
heroic act of Mr. Spencer last week
to save his son Joe from the flatnes
during the burning of the Carbonate
hotel. Missing his sou. and feanng
that he would perish, be rushed to
his bed room on the second floor,'
where he found Joe lying ou the lied
unconscious. The smoke was stifliug
and amid the roar of tbe last ap
proaching flames, he clasped his boy
in his arms and started for the stair*
way. He became insensible, and
when restored to consciousness found
himself lying on the floor at the head
of the stairs, still holding him in hit
arms. By a desperate struggle be
must have forced his way through
the hall, and was revived by the ffeah
air when he neared the end of the
hail. It was owing to this noble met
of his that he lost his life, as be in
haled a considerable quantity, of
smoke while rescuing his son.

Our nation gives it** sanction to the
