Two weeks ago the Rxcobd, with its usual enterprise of being the first to publish all important local news, announced that there was a prospect that the railroad track on River street would shortly be removed; that the town board had sent Hw •bal Frazier to confer with the rail road people about it, and that they assured him it would soon be re moved in accordance with the terms of the agreement formerly made res pecting the matter. Now there does not appear to be anything in this important piece of ||MLi^^oexcUetfc^|Mr the Be-, wish to destroy they first make road” and so it is iu this case. Here is how the Reporter 6huts its eyes and butts against the truth: The statements made are all cor rect, except the tollowing: The Record has no more evidence that the track on River street will be re moved than it had six mouths ago. The town board never sent Marshal Frazier to Colorado Springs. Mar shal Frazier has not been to Colorado Springs to confer with the railroad people, nor has he been there at all. The railroad people did not assure Marshal Frazier that the track would be removed “in accordance with the terms of the Agreement formerly made respecting the matter.” The remaining portion of the article ks correct in every particular, and even if the Record was wrong in some of its statements, it dcserres great cred it for its unlimited stretch of imagi nation. The facts stated by the Record can be proved by every member of the town board, and by Marshal Frazier himself. He was instructed by the board to go and see the rail road officials at its meeting held four weeks ago last Monday. The Record reporter, who was present, was re quested by Capt. Ferrier in the opeu meeting not to publish the matter in that week’s report of their proceed ings, so as not to stir it up before the railroad officials had been seen, and the request was joined in by the other members. The matter was omitted accordingly. Marshal Fra zier afterwards reported to the Record that lie had visited the rail road officials—leaving town for that purp~« -•* •>«* niorlit tile gKjM IfsTf hangedand thus accounting for his absence that night—and bad a satisfactory interview with Geueral Palmer who, he said, assured him the track would be removed iu accord* ancc with tbe agreement. During the past week the Record was shown a letter on the subfect from the railroad officials to Mr. Skeele, in which they excuse the delay on ac count of the absence of Mr. Bass, the attorney of the road. It seems almost incredible that any one could be so stupid aa to rnah in to contradict a statement which can be auatained by ao much proof. The Record regrets its neighbor did not enjoy the holidays better. It is dys peptic and has had a bad attack of the night mare. For some time past the associated press dispatches have contained num erous criticisms of the English press on the Ouiteau trial. Of course they express great astonishment at the license allowed to the assassin and hold the judge, prosecuting attor neys and American laws generally, up to ridicule and contempt before the astonished gaze of John Bull. Whatever may be said about tne course of the judge and attorneys in the Guitsan case it ill becomes the English press to criticise it. Over there they put people in jail and keep them there lor years without trial or even without letting them know what they are charged with. Several naturalized citizens of America are now languishing in British prisons In Ireland without £yial or any prospect of one. The iutcuse current of electricity necessary to produce the electric light has already caused several deaths, besidos setting fire to many buildings. A short time ago a man who was repairing the electric light wires in Denver, was knocked from the top of a ladder and almost killed by the shock, caused by the sudden turning on of the electric current. A Denver paper recently reports anoth er accident as follows: Electricity was (risking around Ford’s place yesterday evening at a lively rate. At about 7 o’clock a tel ephone wire broke and foil over the other wires, throwing all the current together. Attention wan first at tracted by tbe light dancing along the wire. Shortly after the .tele phone box in Ford’s commenced smoking, and when Mr. Douginas, oneot the employes, undertook to ring an the neutral oiss, fines as shot from the apertures, and the whole thing wat in n Mena. The connect ion wee eut at ones and the die pat oak At thin time an exprasemaa started throagh the alley. In the darkness his bone stepped on the wire and rceeived a severe shook. It knocked him down, and ha lay for noma fifteen miaatea before ha je eoTeied sudelntty to go oa. I New Year's Day passed off quietly in this city. Quite a number of gen* tlemen availed themselves of the hol iday on Monday to make calls and pRy their respects to their lady ac quaintances. Those who made calls Ire re so graciously received by the ladies that they vowed that on next *«w years-they would make better preparations and enter more enthusi astically into the spirit of the occas ion. It Is a beautiful custom when confined within the limits of strict propriety. The ladies of the Wish jbonc Club received callers at the Jpsidenoe of one of their number, Mias Clara Brewster. They enter wpd their callers in an appropri- In the Guiteau case the prosecu tion have closed their expert testi mony as to the sanity of the assassin, now and at the time he committed the murder. The defence has offered some testimony in rebuttal some of which was not admitted. There is now a prospect that the case will be closed and submitted to the jury next week. The Mining Gazette issued an illus trated holiday edition on tinted pa per, giving much information about the mineral and other resources of Fremont county and the state gen erally. The lasi Reporter asks : Will the town board please inform the young man that presides over the columns of the Rrcord of their out goings and incomings. He has a right to have his inquisitive mind satisfied, and we opine that he will have every one of the board banished to,Hie Fiji Islands if they don't report t&i*»im a little more regularly than theroliave heretofore done. It is quite uunecessary. Tw Re cord man* 1 can always find out for himself enough to satisfy the cravings of his inquisitive mind, and at the same time be tries to find items of news to satisfy the minds of an inquisitive public. Ona would be led to believe from reading the Reporter's comments on the Rec ord's enterprise in being first to publish interesting local news, that it regarded the matter as an infringe ment on its own “patent insides" and USOcK’TpaviHßeirr outside*. xms Record has rendered good service to the town board as well as to the tax-payers by publishing reports of the town meetings. It has good rea son to know that all concerned are well pleased to see the proceedings published. There does not appear to be auything about the matter which any oue wants to conceal, aud there certainly, should be notbiug about the management of public af fairs which should not be exposed to public view'. The County Commissioners. The county commissioners met ou Tuesday, the 3d inst., at the Record er’s office in the new court house. Present Messrs. Phelps, Lobach and Muehlbaeh. The minutes of previous meetings were read and approved. The following accounts were ap proved : Nov. 17th. Shaeffer & Cassidy, for court house clock and bell, $895.31. Dec. "th. D. Fisher for extra work on court house and grounds, $3,000, by warrant on general fund. Dec. 23d. D. Fisher for work done on Parkdale bridge, $338.97. Dec. 3lst. D. Fisher for extra work done on court house and grouuds by warrant on general fond S3,SCO. D. Fisher, for extra work.done on court house and grounds, to be paid from contingent fund, S3OO. The contract given D. Fisher on Dec. 19th, for cut stone walk from front gate to the steps of the court house at 41 cents per square foot and 47 cents per linear foot ot curbing, was approved. On the same date it was ordered that D. Fisher be em powered to procure ten and a half doxen of chairs to be placed in the various rooms of the court house. The contract awarded to D. Fisher ,ou Dec. 31st, for laying a stone side walk from second street to the court house, the same as the one in front at a coat of S4OO, was approved. - The hide for the position of county physician were then opened and read as follows: Dr. J. L. Prentiss, without medical supplies, $500; with medical sup plies, SIOO. Dr. F. P. Blake, S6OO without med ical supplies. . Dr. Craven, s4*o and furnlsh tnedl- Dr. Palmer, $440 and furnish med icine. Dr. Daweon, the precent county physician, precanted a statement, in which be slated that the duties of the eflea, if properly attended to, were worth $740; especially if they sham Id ha anything like what he had MMfhm daring the poet years In slid he had dltad the position. He 1 ted qndeevered to serve the eooaty faithfully and he believed he had ren dered good service and saved con siderable money to the county. He did not think the services of profes ional men should be subject to com petition by tender like contract work, or the furnishing of supplies. He believed such a course was quite unusual in the case of attorney or others employed by the county, but as this course had been taken on this occasion, he had only to say that, if the commissioners were satisfied with the professional services he had rendered and desired that be should continue to serve in the capacity of county physician, he would agree to serve for oue dollar less than any other tender made. Dr. Dawson's professional services having been highly satisfactory to the commissioners and to the pobtic and as bis offer was the lowest, he was unanimously reappointed at $459 per year. The conditions of the advertisement did not obligate the commissioners to accept the lowest bid, but as Dr. Dawson has consent ed to serve for less than the lowest tender, the county saves some money and it is presumed all will be satis fied. The Military College. The college opeued on Thursday the 3d, inst., with forty-three pupils enrolled and forty in attendance. This attendance at the opening of the winter term assures the success of the college, and President Sawyer aud the trustees are correspondingly ju bilant. New classes in the languages and the higher branches have been organized ; Greek, German, Spanish, Physiology, Natural Pilosophr, &c. The following resolution was unan imously passed by the county com missioners after settling up with Mr. D. Fisher, the contractor of the court house, and accepting the building. Resolved, That we have accepted the court house building from the contractor, Mr. D. Fisher, and that we in our official capacity cordially endorse him as a contractor worthy of confidence. The court house built by him is fully up to coutract audit a worthy monument of his skill as a contractor aud of it in honesty and in tegrity ot character. Mr. Bowfbr expects to take change of tiie post office about the first of February. He has filed his bonds for $20,000. ’ The ladies of the C. P. church will give a sapper Thursday, January 19, 1832. The Aesthetic Apostle. New York, January s.—A chilled crowd of esthetic human beings beat their hands and stamped theirTeet on the dock this morning while wait ing the Arizona, on which was their apostle, Oscar Wilde. The big ship stuck fast on a bank of mud twenty feet from the dock. Tugs pushed and pulled; the Arizona's engines worked vigorously ; but the mod was victor for a time. While the fight between steam and mud was in pro gress the shivering mass of humanity greeted with rounds of applause the toweriug form on the Arizona’s deck. It was that of a man youthful in appearance. He stood six feet four iuches. He has a smooth face and long, flowing locks. An over coat of bottle-green cloth, fur lined aud fur collared, seal skiu cap and yellow kid gloves made the man more conspicuous. It was Oscar Wifde* the poet and journalist. “I am here to lecture and see the country,” he said, with a hearty laugh. “Will I stay long? Really, I cannot say. It depends upon elr cumstauce*. My fellow voyagers have given me such a glowing de scription of the country that i am in love with it already, i want to see what there is in'-ypur great metropo lis, and the far West has attractions, unless it is misrepresented, that 1 must witness, and I am anxious to see something of Mexico.” Lighting a tresh cigarette Mr. Wilde continued : “Already I have experi enced something of American cour tesy. 1 was 29last October. I shall remain long enough to see what there Is worth seeing in glorious America.” A Parallel and a Contrast. On the 11th of May, 1813, a* Mr. Perceval, the British prime minister was entering the lobby of the House of Commons, he was shot through the heart, and exclaiming “Ob, my Wod,” fell dead on the floor. There were about twenty persons in the lobby. The assassin was recognized and seized. The discharged pistol was found on him, and another load ed and primed was taken from his pocket. When the unhappy murder *sr knew that Mr. Perceval was dead, he exclaimed "I am sorry for It.” He mentioned that he had received wrongs ikons the Government. He was ascertained to be a bankrupt Liverpool merchant, John Belling, baa. Examined by three magis trates, be was committed to New gate. He was tried at the old Bailey ' on the fourth dav after he had flred , the fatal shot. The law anthorltiea would not postpone the trial to re ceive evldeaee of his Insanity, that it 1 was stated coaid bs produced ; ha 1 was baagad a week after the Sanaa 1 >1 nation Knight's History ef Eng. land. NO. 1 Last week the Record noted the' general feeling of interest on the part of the tax-paying in consequence o t the increased rate of taxation this rear. How this Is as it should No matter what public improvements are made er who spends the town funds, one thing is as certain ar death and the measles, and that is, the tax-payers will ultimately have to foot the bills. This is the reason why the Record desires to keep the pnbiic posted on the manner iu which the town aud county affairs arc man aged and not with a view to cast re flections on the town or county of ficials, as the Reporter and some other foolish people seem to iraagine.- So far as the Rncosir has published or commented on the affairs of the town or county, the officers seem to* ) have discharged their trnst in a most creditable manner. If hi the future it should be fouud that any of them have failed to do so, the *ty will rest on them and not with the Record for unearthing the mat ter. It is due to the present towtf board to state that the iucrease in the city taxes this year was owing to? the compromise of the bonded in debtedness of the city with the rail road company. Fitly thousand dol lars in bonds and accumulated inter est, amounting to about $32,000, were compromised for a cash payment of $7,000, aud the return of $50,000 rail road stock. To raise the cash, $7,000 bonds bearing 10 per cent, were is sued and taken by Mr. Raynolds, of the Fremont County Bank, at par. One half of this amount has to be paid in 1882 and the other half in j 1888. There is no question but this Was a favorable compromise for the city, and there can be no doubt but the plunging of the city into the original indebtedness was a’very unwise piece of business. The tax-payers should keep their eyes on public affairs and preveut a repetition of such foolish ness. Every escape that occurs at the penitentiary makes us the more con vinced that the striped uniforms are not the kind for prisoners who work outside, particularly in lime rock that is so near the color of their clothes. Nothing but a bright-red should be worn. The striped mate-' rial might be used by trusties to dis right to be away from the guards.' Mr. W. C.
