It has been confidentially rumored
that David Davis sits in the vice- !
president's chair upon his side. It;
never was made to fit him nor he it.
Independent candidates in this
county will be compelled to depend
upon tenderfoot tracks and mountain
scenery for support at the coming
electiou.
The Pueblos have wisely concluded
to pool their issues upon the capital
question and donate a site for the
capitol building plump in the center
of the raging Arknusaw.
It was a compliment well worthy
the men. The republican coutity
convention endorsed the nomination
of John Wilson for clerk and the j
democratic county convention eu- j
dorsed the nomination of Clias. E. j
Waldo for judge.
The article in last week’s Reporter !
headed “Professional Courtesy,” was 1
correct in even particular even !
where it read wc refused to sell the
ink. The truth is we loaued the Re
porter the ink aud received a black
guarding for it.
The map carried by the Halida Mail
reminds one of an octopus. An octo
pus is a sea monstrosity with many
arms. While one is reaching out to
grasp something beyond its strength
the others arc clinging to the old
moss-backed rocks lor dear life.
the Reporter that we'" swore to our
office being worth only SBUb we will
«»nly say that a great deal oi our stock
was bought after the assessment was
made, and that the assessor made his
own valuation. $2,000. and that we
did not swear to anything.
The voter* ot ll»e Puetdos upon the
capital questiou will have their bal
lots printed thusiy : “For a radius
of two miles from the ccutcr of Union
avenue bridge where it crosses (he
Arkansas river for the seat of govern
j incut.” The name Pueblo or South
Pueblo cannot be inserted in the bul
lot lor fear of exciting the suspicion
of voters in either town
A petition was circulated this week .
i aud signed by all of Canon’s best ami !
most moral citizens asking ‘the an- I
thorilics to suppress the dance hall.
It shows that the people of Canon
have the “backbone aud moral cour
age” to try to break up the institu
tion cvcu after the Reporter advo
cated it so strongly.
The change from Scuator Bayard
to Senator Davis as president pro
tem ol the senate of the Uuitcd Slates
was only a step from real cemoentcy j
to obese uncertainty. The republi
cans can only hope, uow that they
have placed him witbiu sound of the
bumblebee which has bceu ill his bou
nd these many years, that he will
feel ttuder obligations to vote with
them.
The Reporter comes out )a9t
week fair and square as the cham
pion of daucc halls and drunkenness.
It says : “Z/e (Blake) Merer visited ;
dance hails or pot drunk. This wc \
\ believe to be true, simply because j
! he hadn't the backbone or necessary \
| moral courage to do either la such !
; a paper to be put into tho bauds ot I
j our youug children to be read ? It is i
| the first instance known of a family ■
paper advocating such principles.
An importaul point Mi tho capital
question is digioilitv of site
ju a central location, a place
from which all * portioua of the
atate can be reached ia the quickest
time aud at the least expense, a city
to which people cau come, transact
their buaiuess with tho state officials
and return home with the smallest loss
to them in money and time: Believ
ing that Caftou City is the point best
located to reach iu the quickest time
from all portions of the common
wealth, we agaiu present to the vo
ters this city for the permanent seat
of government of Colorado. With
out facts this argument cannot s and,
therefore we preseut the following:

It will be seen at a glance that no
f town in Colorado is so favorably sit
uated upon a railroad as Canon and
i that no towu can be reached in so few
I hours travel from every important
city in the state. This is a point
which canuot be over estimated in the
arguments in favor of Canon for the
capital. Ever} 1 voter should consider
it carefully as a matter of pure busi
uess.
The Republican County Ticket.
The ticket which we prcseut to the
readers of the Record to-day upon
the second page i« one of the best
ever pirsente4 by the republicans to
, the voters of Fremont county. There
' is not an objectionable name upon it,
and there is no reason why every re
publican should not vote it without a
scratch. This county claims to stand j
among the galaxy of republican stars j
in this centennial state, but the claim j
can never be made wholly good uutil'
every officer in it is a republican.
For the past four years the sheriff’s
office has been held by a democrat. !
For the past eight years a democrat:
j has held the office of county tre&sur- j
| er. For almost fcartccn years a deni- 1
‘ ocrat lias been in the office of clerk
and recorder. For several years, at
| least, the republicans have held the
insignificant offices—positions which
amounted to but little pecuniarily or ;
I influentially. Yet wc claim this is a
| a republican county. If republicans
j will pull together as strongly, let the
j circumstances of the nominations be
1 what they may, as the democrats,
! this state of affairs need not exist. It
is republican votes that have kept •
democrats iu office here, but in what
manner have they been benefitted ?
Not oue iota. No democrat lias here
tofore conceded a republican as much
. as a ballot, little less have they cou
! ceded them the slightest patronage.
! Simply because you or your friend
i did not receive a nomination from a
republican convention is small rea
son why you should vote against the ,
man who was moro successful in get
ting his uame upon the ticket. Ifj
you are a republican then be one iu I
the full meaning of that term and ]
vote your whole ticket, so long as the (
meu whom you are asked to vote for t
I arc honorable, capable and irre- i
i proachaole iu character. Such meu
| we present for your suffVages upon ;
! the 8th day of November, nud we feel j
satisfied that every republican will
J do his duty ou that day so that Fre-!
> moot county may stand a star of the j
'first magnitude upon the bauuer ol
Colorado republicanism. We here
with append a brief sketch of the
men for whom your ballots are solici
ted:
8YLVI8TSB At. LEX.
Mr. Alieu, the candidate for couutv
commissioner from the secoud dis
trict, is a ranch man iu the Hardscrab
ble neighborhood, in (he southeastern
portion of the county. He is a stroug
man iu his part of the county, honoi
ed for his busiuess integrity, his high
sense of duty and his neighborly i
qualities. He is well spoken of wher- j
ever kuon n and fully competent to!
discharge the duties of the office in a
thorough and economical manner.
riLUAX 8. JORISS.
For sheriff we present for your
consideration the name cf Mr. Wil
liam 8. Junes, the unanimous choice
of the republicans of Coal Creek, and
the man who should he the nnaal
mous choice of the republicans of the
county for that ot!ic«, os we have no
doubt he will be and therefore be our
next sheriff. Mr. Jones is compara
tively a young man, a man of great
popularity at his home, one who
earns his livelihood by honest in
dustry. honorable and conscientious in
the performance of every duty. With
out doubt he will make a thoroughly
competent and excellent official.
GEORGE O. BALDWIN.

George O. Baldwin, of the firm of
4k Phelps, proprietors of the
He has been a cit
whom he comes in contact. Tie ha
man of excellent business capacity
and will make a good treasurer.

Mr. Waldo is the choice of both re
publicans and democrats for the of
fice of county judge. There was no
oppositiou to him in the democratic
convention. His electiou is assured.
JOHN WILSON.
Mr. Wilson has held the office of
clerk ever since 1867 to the eminent
satisfaction of all concerned. ludeed

that time, republicans and democrats
alike conceding that John Wilson
was the man for the office.
GEORGE E. DUDLEY.
Mr. Dudley was nominated by both
the republican and democratic con
ventions for superintendent of pub
lic instruction, which is a high com
plimeut to his ability to fulfill the
duties of that office successfully.
HENRY CLAY WEBSTER.
For assessor Mr. Webster is the
choice of the republicans.* He was
appointed by the county commission
ers to perform the duties of that
position last year and so successfully
and creditably did he do the work
that the convention did not see
wherciu he could be bettered. Mr.
Webster should be elected by all
means.
JAMES L. HYDE.
Mr. Hyde has been coroner for some
months by appointment of the coun
ty commissioners and the duties he
has becu called upon to perform have
been promptly attended to. He is
the right man in the right place.
ISAAC WITCHER.
For surveyor Mr. Witcher was the
uuauiiuous choice of the convention
! and while his duties are not great he
i is capable of performing them to the
fullest extent.
For precinct officers the republican
candidates are Albert G. Agard for
justice of the peace. Walter S. Duu
j bar aud Chas. W. Sharp for consta

publicau candidate, for superintend
