G rTT BRVO aTHRIE, EARLE & PEDLEY, MAIN STREET, CANON CITY, COLORADO. The Reporter lays: The Rbcobii gang seem to be wor rying over the financial standing of the Reporter. The Recobd had no idea it was touching the Reporter on the raw when it made that little joke about the $2 it collected from the town board. The charity ball lately given in Denver was a grand success, netting over $1,600 for sweet charity’s sake, it is said many of the toilets worn by ladies present cost over $3,000 each. Some of the papers hare sneered at the shoddy display made by a few of the mushroom aristocracy of Denver, but it should be remembered that charity covers a multitude of sins. if there is anything this city needs more than another newapaper or lintel, it is an opera house. Blake’s ucw hall, although nicely fitted up and conveniently located, seams too small to bold the crowds which Ml the Reporter man's miud’s eye. It has seating capacity for three hun dred and usually abont ore-half of them are taken. Won't some capi talist or liouauaa king rush iu to sup ply this “|[aug fUlMraa^^ Italy and the south of Kpptfe! Their ineffectual light pales before the beautiful au tumn and winter weather of Canon City. From all around is heard re ports of snow storms and cold, and from the east we bear of floods, rains and snows,while here in the beautiful Valiev of Arkansas, we are enjoying the most charming weather imagina ble. I.et us be thankful that neither greedy Denver nor any ravenous monopoly can rob us of our beauti ful clluiato. Tlic Record reporter lbought it very sirange that the town board would allow Idm to sit in the same room witli them white they were iu session. 1> is a little strange. Had we been in I lint honorable assembly we should have iusisted upon carry ing him out upou a chip. Reporter. This is silly. The Ukcobd report er did not think anylhiug ofthekind. I.et some such fellow try to prevent him from at tending a public meeting —all meetings of the town board arc public —and he will, probably, be car ried out on a shutter. What sort of an idea can the Reportor people have of tho rights of a newspaper reporter any way ? It used to be said in the olden time that all roada led to Some and the same will yet be said of Canon City so far ms roads in Colorado are con cerned. This place has got all the primary eescntiala for operating rail roads and manufacl tiring, via: Coal, coal oil, lime, building atone, water power, mineral, etc.*. consequently no railroad can feel safe nntil it has established itselt here as a base of supply. It is now stated that the Denver A New Orleaua railroad hat purchased the coal lands ofthe Grand Cation coal company and will have ils cars running here at an early day. Surveys are also being made for a “bee line” railroad across the range from Colorado Springs to Cafiou City. Silver Cliff is under a temporary elond. The big mill of the Silver Cliff mining company ta again stint down. No reason is assigned further than that work for the present was suspended and that it was Indefinite when it might start up. Rumors of new combinations with other claims are given out, bat they are all fudge. It will be found that Use truth ofthe matter Is the ores are not free mill ing and that the new mill, although of greater oapadty, la aa worthless as the old oaa. Thorn Call Ms ala and Comstock ax parts, with thalr free milling outfits, hare bean the corse ofthe mining latereate ef Colorado. The area of this slata aw principally refractory or siualtiug, and California plants are net adapted In their treat ment. The editor of the Huerfano Herald knows a good thing when he secs it. He printed a short article from the Record as an editorial, but forgot to give the customary credit. While Silver Clifl, Pueblo, Denver, and other cities, are suffering from the horrors of a coal fanaiue and cold weather, Canon City is basking in sunshine and an abundance of cheap co tl, of the best quality, mined from her own inexhaustable coal beds. Many a shot at random sent. Finds atm the archer never meant. Last week’s Record endeavored to point a moral for the benefit of our good citizens by calling attention to the connection of the late disreputa ble dance house crowd with theßoda tragedy. At this the Reporter man gets mad and calls vulgar names. We assure him there was not the slight est intention of hitting him. Another testimony to the prosperi ty of Cafton City, as viewed from the outside, is shown in the removal to this place from Silver Cliff, of the Mining Gazette, This is one of th e best mining papers of the state and has been enlarged from eight to tfcelve pages since its removal, to meet thai »qalrru ■wants Off t»«r fcawwaa*- etfpatronage; edttotvOoi. oum* stock. Is highly spoken of as a gentle man and mining expert, and th business manager, Mr. Hunter, is a bright, active young mau whom it is a pleasure to meet. Both gentlemen will t>e welcome acquisitions to Canon society. Drives Around Canon City. Attractive drives are of the utmost importance to any community aspir ing to enjoyments and privileges, that cluster about towns and cities noted for pleasant homes. Canon, already claiming many such, should at once turn her attention to the lo cation and improvement of her pleas ure circuit. In this ourcitiaens have taken the Initiative by fine Improve ments to their street*. On the road to the penitentiary, soda spriugs, to three mile springs, Devil’s Gate aud the parks beyond. Also to Bridge street, and to the City of the Dead, Gravestock*s conservatory au»t flower garden, Harry Baker’s extensive veg etable garden, and the charming pri vate grounds of South Canon. They should now have the co-operation of rural neighbors, for of what avail is it to tell of their flue houses, thrifty orchards, blooded stock and game chickens. Their cabbages as large as bass drums, of their cucumbers aud watermelons of such prodigious size that they moMsure by a new table, as three cucumbers make one yard, five watermelons make one rod, perch or pole, Ac., provided the rich adobe wlieu wet is quite too many feet deep to euablc us to travel the roads. No gentlemen, if you would not “hide your light under a bushel,” club to gether, and donate ail the days with your teams that may be necessary to turnpike the roads through your road districts. Nothing will pa'v better, for when ouco done well, only a small expenditure of labor anuually will keep the roads tu perfect condition. Street Commissioner Sell has prom ised it shall be done in that style to the east boundary of corporation and we all kuow he carries out wbat he proposes to perforin. We do not claim our sectlou can vie with Los Angeles, Cal., iu its twentv uille tree lined avenue, but there la no reason why the aveuue down the Cation park to OU Creek and the old mill iu direction of the Brautford quarries, should not be made in proportion to its length, equally attractive. The soil of that road wheu turnplked and rounded well In the centre, will soon pack solid as a macadamised state road, and furnish au unexcelled pleasure drive. The road across Lincoln Park towards Coal Creek, Canfield mine. Rock vale and Oak Creek, foe Flor ence orchards aud vegetable gardeus. as well as to Carson mine and the Iron Spriugs, with very little effort can be matle quite perfect. The drive to Hot Springs should be mode so Immediately. It I* n burning shame that an attractive and Invigorating health resort should be so diflteolt of access. The charming route up Oil Creek to Garden Park and Marble Caves, and tke tiaerla* Cemetery, should also receive attention. Let there he concerted action and the re unite will be coufort and enjoyment to all. SHOCKING CRIME! Attempt to Outrage a Little Girl—Swift and Terrible Punishment. A Tramp Emasculated. In the early part of the present week the moral sensibilities of our usually quiet community, was inex pressibly shocked by the report that a tramping loafer had attempted an outrage upon a little girl, less than five years old, the daughter of one of our iuost respected citizens, lie met the child playing on the street near her home and by promises of caudy coaxed her along with him. He pur chased teu cents worth of candy for her but the child seemed reluctant to go further with him. -Ho then took her by the hand, gulled her along, keeping her fron crying out by promising more candy. He was noticed hauling her along the street leading to the brush across the track opposite Mr. Kudd’s house. Those who saw him did not know but she might be his owu child, but becoming frightened she cried louder. This led the parlies who saw him to sus pect that something was wrong and they followed. They came upon the brute in uie brush aud he ran away across tlic river eluding pursuit uu of the vile wretch's intentions until they cauie up to the child ant| heard her story, which she frankly told with childish simplicity. Thanks to the promptness of the pursuers the child was not injured, but enough was known to place beyond doubt the intentions of the depraved vil lain. Quiet but vigorous plaus were laid for his capture but be could uot be fouud that day. On the follow ing day our vigilant city marshal heard that a tramp was seen sneak ing around the out-house of the pub lic school, used by the female scholars Ue at ouce made a raid on the out house and fouud the fieud crouching behind the door, with his person ex posed. On the way to the lock up the little girl identified him as the one who abused her. Others who saw him leading her away also ident ified hitu and no doubt was left that he was the villain. 11c was theu locked up in the calaboose. As the story of tlic alteiuptevl outrage passed from one to auolher, imliguatioii ran very high. Fearing violence troiu a mob the officers kept the matter of the arrest very quiet aud only a few knew of it. Early the next morning the city was startled by the report that the calaboose had beeu broken open dur ing the night, by a small number of masked men who gagged, bound aud emasculated tho prisoner. After this operation, which was so quietly per formed that no one was aroused, one of the masked men knocked on Sheriff Shaffer's door, about one o’clock. Whan the sheriff opeued the door a gun was pointing in his face aud he was ordered to turn his back uutil Ue was told wuat was wanted. Sliaf- j fer says the bore of that gun looked j as big as a stove pipe aud he is cer-' tain the gun was clevcu feet long, i The masked man told him to go to the calaboose and he would fiud a prisoner who needed attention. As soon as be recovered from the fright of the big guu, he sent for Dr. Daw son and had the victim removed to the hospital where he received the necessary medical treatment. The wretch gives his name as Cba*. Smith aud says he is a native of Mass achusetts. lie says he has no friends auy where aud refuses to give any particular* about himself, further than that he has tramped around. Colorado siuce 1876. lie is a big I powerful man, fully six feet, and : about thirty years old. There is but one sentiment in the community aud that is that he was served right. If the same treatment were meted out to all such degraded wretches there would be fewer such outrages. Mo clu« whatever has been learned ol who the emasculatora are, nor docs there seem to be any disposition to fiud out. The Pueblo Chieftain says that city lias had a temporary relief from this coal famine.

The Republican compliments the Canon coal at the expense of the FruucevilSe. The fact is, there is scarcely any difference between the latter and the Boulder coals. But ad mitting that there is, the Republican should know that the Denver ft New Orleans proposes to bring Cafion coal to Denver, access to the banks being had over the standard guage road built by the Atchison ft Topeka. This is one of the leading reasons why the Denver ft New Orleans build to Pueblo. The l&io Grande has failed to keep this market supplied with that coal. Will the Republican say why the Denver ft New Orleans shouln not supply the deficiency ? Are the people to freeze to death rather than be warmed bv a southern’*** coal brought iu by a rival to the Rio Grande ?—Denver Times. Mr. L».
