A. \\ ALTER, *40144 Asslguee. . S’ V -rsc! CANON CITY vs. DENVER. An Argument for the Consideration of the Voters cnonthern Colorado. The day is near at'-liand when the legal voters of Colo&do are to cast their ballots and say whether the permanent seat ofr|p|»vsrxiincnt shall remain at its prefitat inconvenient although metre polifitt locality or be removed to some cjU* aearer the ggfg graphical and popuHpM Venter of jtMfc 6tate. No one oowionilct tha-'liitfP tht those WHWWkwfisor very nea?' the great Arkansas valley and It is al most beyond dispute that Canon City is the town nearest those centers and most convenvient to be reached by rail from all important cities in Colo rado. While Denver makes much of the fact that it is the terminus of many railroad lines it invariably fail also to meutiou another fact, namely : That every line of rail, with one ex ception, which terminates in that city is owned and operated by one corporation, and that only one of the roads ruus into southern Colorado* It is upon this latter line that Canon City is situated, and the one over which all southern Colorado people must travel to reach the capital of the state. Wealthy men of Denver have offered to the tax-payers of the state a parcel or parcels of laud in that city, which they just now place a fancy price upon, as an inducement to them to vote the permanent seat of government there. Canon City does not offer an inducement of that kind, but can and does offer cheap labor, an abundance of building material, a central location, the fittest climate in the world and the best point to reach in shortest mileage, least time and cheapest fare, as the following figures will show*. The time in hours is given iu round num bers for the sake of convenience. The passenger fare Is based upon a rate of teu cents per mile, except between Deuvcr and Pueblo, over which por tion of the Denver & Kio Grande rail road it is six cents per mile : To Canon from Miles.

These totals include Denver and Colorado ! Springs. Byway of comparison the 1 following figures arc* Instructive : To Denver Irom Mite*. Hour*. Fare.

Here, then, we have j fourteen towns south of Denver, ' whose total miles to be traveled to i reach that city is 3,301, while these same towns, with Denver included, can come to Canon City in a total dis tance of 1,700 miles, a difference in favor of this city of t,51l miles. These towns must spend 136 total hoars in trsveliug to Denver, while only 109 total hours are consumed in a journev lo Canon City, a saving to them iu favor dfUiis’citv of 77 hours—three days and a half. ’These fourteen towns nuist pay in single faros a total sum of $264.70 to Denver, while the total sum in single fares to Cnßou, always Including Denver. i 55172.30; in favor of this city, $92.30. On the other hnud there are only eight towus of importanre north of Denver, and 'whose citizens eau reach that city at lesa cost iu miles, lime and fares. In comparing the distances from those northern towus to Canon with the distances from southern cities It will he discovered that tiie difference Is very slight, lint when we come to think of the loss in time and monev in one trip from fourteen towns, mul tiplied by the number of Joorneys made each year to Denver, exclusive ly upon business with the stats, and add to those Journeys the future rears, the sum total is appalling, aud lit less time than one would believe, enough van be saved by making Caftou City the permaneut capital to purchase the valu able site and erect a state house upon it. To southern Colorado peo ple we appeal to consider these fig ures carefully aud as a .matter of business. The individual tax-payer would rather save a few dollars for his own use than to save a few cents lo the taxable property of the state. We have pointed out the way la which it may be accomplished. CAMPAIGN NOTES. The ballots for the capital will be separate from those for county offi cers. Let no voter forget to put in his ballot for Canon City for the capi tal at the same time lie votes for county officers.- Ben Shaffer ami Henry Harrison, the democratic candidates for sheriff and treasurer respectively,were down at the Coal Banlcsthis week on a still hunt. It is thought they found the and topped the worm from the .jMmHous manner in which they &|gpilK getting them up for the boys. people have pro p AdnililUp its* «K»t emphatic man ner against the third term principle in politics. As Ben. Shaffer has held j the office of sheriff for two terms there is a strong feeling abroad among all parties, but especially among re publicans, that he should be retired to private life to make way for a good republican. Mr. Harrison, the democratic can. didate for Treasurer, gave himself away badly in Coal Creek this week. He said it was the first time he had been there in two years, or siuce the last campaign. He mixed in taffy with the driuks pretty freely by comment ing on the evidences of prosperity, handsome babies, &c. Too thin Mr. il. What do you take the Coal Creek ers for anyway ? Sylvester Allen, the republican nominee for commissioner, may not be so well known in the northern part of the county, but those who know him well think very highly of him. For example when Mr. Lobach, who was one of the best commissioners Fremont county ever had, wanted to resign, he recommended Mr. Allen to j the governor as his successor. This , is as good an endorsement as any man need have in Fremont county. Mr. Baldwiu, the republican candi date for Treasurer, needs no endorse ment to the people of Canon City, where he is well known as an honor able, upright business raau. He is a member of the firm of Baldwia and Phelps, proprietors of the White Rose Mills. For the information of voters outside of Csnou, the Becorik can truthfully say that he is a responsible 1 business tnau of most excellent char ; acter and habits, and in every respect j worthy of being trusted with the funds of the county. Henry Clay Webster, the candidate for assessor on the republican ticket, who was appointed to make the as sessments in this county last year, proved liitnself one of the most ef ficient assessors the county ever had. It is a most difficult office In which to give general satisfaction, but the: fairness of liis assessments axid the ! complete and satisfactory manner iu ; which he made his returns to the j county commissioners, elicited the! ! approval of all. lie will be elected j . by a large majority. | Let no one be deceived or discour aged by the unfounded report that j Ben. Shaffer has the special support | ■ and friendship of the D. & R. G. R. 1 IS. Co. The Record has the very j best authority for stating that the 1 railroad company or its officials will | take no part whatever in the present political contest. Therefore all re publicans, whether in the employ ment of the railroad company or not, can enter heartily into this contest iu favor of Mr. Jones, the republican uominee. Scratcliers and kickers, take notice ! The primaries have been held, dele gates elected and candidates nomin ated in a proper and harmonious man ner, and in each instance the nomin ation was made unanimous. The issue is thus fairly made up on a strictly party basis and no man claim ing to be a republican should dodge it or deceive his patty and nominees by bolfrag; or scratching bis ticket. It Is in the highest degree dishonor able for meu to enter a convention either as candidates or delegates, and because they canuot be nominated or have their own w ay against the wish of the majority, to butt, scratch or work aguiust one or all\f the nomi nees iu au uuderbaud mainier. An open, avowed .democrat is entitled to respect because all know how* he I but meu claiming to be re publicans and occasionally seeking favors at the hands of the party, should stand by their colors iu 6uch ati une<iuivocal manner that there shall be no doubt iu future as to which aide of the fence they arc ou in a straight party contest. Let no man deceive himself with the idea that he can thus play (lot and loose with his party and escape detection, or that such conduct will uot blast his owu political aspirations, if ho has auy. __ On Thursday, President Arthur nominated Judge Cbas.

Fruit Growing Around Canon Gity and in Fremont County. The Garden Spot of The State. A Visit to Jesse Frazer's Orchards at Florence. Jesse Frazer, Esq., of Florence, near Canon City, Uncle Jesse as lie is fa miliarly called by his neighbors, is justly regarded as tbe-pioueer of fruit raising in Colorado. To him belongs the honor of being the first to demon strate, on a large scale, how to culti vate apple and fruit trees successfully, and which kinds are best suited to j our climate. The history of his trials and disap pointments in his first efforts, and the difficulties he had to overcome before achieving final snscess, would fill a whole number of the Record. Asa guide for those entering upon the cultivation of fruits, either for their own domestic use or for profit, and as a further evidence of the many ad vaulnges Canon City presents as the future capital of this state, a brief sketch of what Mr. Frazer has accom plished, and the success he has achieved, will be both instructive aud valuable. Iu compliance with a cordial invita tion a represeutative of the lUcuho had the pleasure of beholding the evi dences of Mr. Frazer’s success as an orchardist. The orchards arc located iu the Valley of the Arkansas river,, about eight miles b**low Canon City. The location and scenery from that point are charming ; but ou this beau tiful autnmn day, with its hazy at mosphere softening the outlines; the hills and mountains covered with overgreens iu the distance; Pike’s Peak, white with recent suow tower ing above them; and the autumn shades of the trees aud shrubbery in tiie Valley of the Arkansas, ranging in color from bright golden to fiery vermillion, presents a panoraim. more beautiful than artists ever dreamed of. /The orchard of bearing trees cou lists of about twenty acres, contain ing over two thousand apple trees, and tn&uy pear, peach aud plum trees. The apple trees in this orchard aver age about twelve years growth or eight years since being set out. They 1 look clean and healthy, aud nearly one half of them are of a kiud which bears every year, while the other half bear light aud heavy crops alternate » years. ) ! The tore which bears ahundautlv i every year and the one which Mr. i Frazer*regards as the best suited to | the locality for general is i the Ben Davis. It is a large bright i red, winter apple aud has never failed, i About one half the orchard is planted i with this tree. His next favorite is | the Wiue Sap. It is a large, rich, | blood red apple, but the trees bear a j light and a heavy crop each alternate I year. There are several hundred | tree's of this quality. The balance of S the orchard is filled with various | kinds of summer and winter apple ! trees, all of which loots well and J healthy, and yield as largely as such | trees produce any where. From a ; casual look at the orchard there seems to be no questiou but the Ben Davis is the tree to tie to for general pur poses and certainty of crop. You may examine row after row of these trees and for evenness of growth aud uniformity of size they will equal anything ever seen iu any locality. Besides this orchard Mr. Frazer has several thousand young trees, in vari ous stages of growth, but not yet old enough to bear,-aud mauy acres un der vegetables, hay, etc. The product of this young orchard the present season lias been two huudred barrels of selected apples sold ; three huudred barrels selected winter apples stored in bins in an outside cellar, thirty teet loug by fifteen feet wide, making five huudred barrels of selected fruit. These at $0 per barrel are worth #3,000. Besides this, he sold several small lots of sum mer apples to the people of the neigh borhood, of which he kept no account. From the small apples set aside in picking lie will make several barrels of cider, which he has contracted for at seventy cents per gallou. Scat tered around among the trees are about one huudred hives of bees, which gave about eight hundred dol lars worth of honey. Tbu9 it will be seen that this twenty acre orchard, with the bees, yield au income of over four thousand dollars per v«ar with little outlay for labor, needing ouly watchful care. These facts are gath ered from Mr, Frazer’s own state ments, and no ouc who knows him would believe for a moment that he i would exaggerate them iu the slight ! est degree. | Mr. Frazer's system of taking care I oThis trees is peculiar, aud »9 the re sult of his practical experience of ! twcutv years in this locality. He | started with twenty trees, and a near j neighbor planted a like number. Iu I the spring his neighbor’s trees were i all dead, while his own were liviug. | His neighbor followed the popular | but erroneous plan t»f leaving the 1 grouud perfectly dry before th- fi'os* : set in, while he saturated the grouud thoroughly with water aud when the frost came it froze the trees and grouud solid. This has been Ilia in variable plan every wiuter since, aud his reasous for it are quite conclusive, lie save wheu the ground is left dry before the frost the moisture soaks dowu aud leaves the ground loose. The high winds shake the trees back aud forth, the roots gradually work loose. The constant swat'lug to and fro breaks or wears off the small fibrous roots and wheu spring conics, iustead of growing, the trees ate. This is the first essential point. The next is the car* of the trees aud the usual irrigation. To keep the trees clear oi* lice aud borers he washes them twice a year with lye. This I kills the bwrers and destroys their eggs. The trunks sud bark of the ISTO. 44 trees present a remarkably smooth and healthy appearance. Mr. Frazer does npt give much at tention to plums, grapes or smaller fruits, but says they prosper and yield largely with intelligent care and a proper selection. The home which Mr. Frazer him made for himself, and the income he is assured of in his declining years, is a rich reward lor a life of industry* patience aud intelligence. M nf ■ ltd live long to enjoy them. Who Caa Tote.
