The Fremont County Record.
canon City, Colorado, Saturday, august 19, issa.
BmUtor Ben Hill, of Georgia, died
at Attafcli. August, 16. aged 59 years.
Secretary Teller it in Denver being
victimized by the multitude of ir
repressible newspaper report era.
The report that the Utcs are re
turning from the Utah agency to their
former reservation iu Colorado, is
not credited by Governor Pitkin. as
he has just received letters from the
Uintah agent that the Indians are
well contented.
The bone of contention this fait
will be the governorship. C*rc
*hhuhl b# taken that the nominee
traqoei. Weak on Id
be free to labor for the good of the
the whole party, recognizing bis obli
gation to all good republicans.
Custer comity has elected her dele
gates to the state convention, and
they arc instructed to vote for James
T. McNealcy for congress. So \re
i toppose that McNealcy feels ns
though he was standing, as it were,
with one foot in Custer county and
ilie other foot in Washington.
Mr. Teller is said to strongly op
pose the idea of appointing mission
aries for Indian agents. He consid
ers them unsuccessful and unfit for
the work, liis plan is to disarm the
ludiaus first, civilize them if possi
ble and let religion fallow. This i&
solid sense and shows that Mr. Teller
understands his business.
It is proposed to erect au agricul
tural annex to the exposition build
ing about the middle of September
to be devoted exclusively to the dis
play of agricultural products. We
hope if tllls propositiou is consum
mated that the people of Kremout
county will step forward with their
produce and take the prize, which
wc feel suro they will justly merit.
Some men are so constituted that
wiicu they heroine United States sen
ators they think they are the party,
nud the requisite to their favor is not
that a person is a good republican,
who has labored in season and out of
seasou for 5 ears for the success of the
party, tmt they requitepersofridwds
hesion to them and their plaus. Such
senators need be hat they are
the servants, not bosses of the party.
Republicans in overv precinct
should be alive to thoSf obligations to
their party. They should follow the
j timely suggestions of ( apt. B. F.
liorkafellow, in his call for the coun
ty conventions, which appears else
where lu the Hkcord, and sec that
; the necessary interest is taken iu the
: primaries and c*n*q*ntiou«. If this
jis done the uoftiihntious will reflect
! the wishes of the voter*, aud the re
i suit of the electiou will be assured.
! Mr. William K. Robertson, of Can- ;
I oil City, candidate for the nomination j
for stntc treasurer, on the republican i
ticket, is receiving many commenda
tory notices iu diflereut parts of the i
state.mid will go into the convention
with considerable strength. Fremont !
Icouut v should, aud we have 110 doubt
S' will, give him a solid support. Mr. i
j Robertson is a gentleman of uucotn
j promis'.ug integrity aud is every way ;
J qualified to make an exu4llent treat
| urer, and his uoiuiuatiou can be sc
| cured by earnest work.
Secretnr»g*eller and Senators llilj !
andChileot! have-returned home from ;
Washington. Colorado has reason
to be proud of all tbreo of them. Sec- j
ret ary Teller is wiuuing golden opiu- ■
ions for the able manner iu which he j
is conducting the affair* of the into*'
| rlor department. Senator llill has
done most effiriont service to the sil
ver and other interests, while Scuator
ChUcott, for tlie short tlineof his scr*
vice has done good work, and made
a favorable impression at Washing
ton. He should be elected \o serve

The republican slate'convention,
lids fail, will be the most important
ouc ever held In this state. It wdU
be important because it has a verjj
delicate work to perform. It will de
cide whether the party is to remain
in the hands ol its members, or
whether it it to be turned over to the
control of some boss, or faction. Tbo
republicans of Colorado are not ready
to acknowledge any boss, and will
not knowingly yield to anything
looking In that direction, but uuleas
the delegates scut to tho convention
are men who have a thorough knowl
edge of the political situation, they
are likely to fall into the trap with
out knowing what they artenkont.
Care should be taken In lUteepffilou
Ot delegates. The of
too much-importune#- to the party 3 o

fellows, just because, they waul to

| The exposition commissioners from
! New Mexico, have among their ex- ;
j hibiu a silver ore specimen from the
Lake Valley weighing CIO pounds,
j worth $7,000. A 1,940 ounce silver
• brick, marked 990 fiue, is also dis
played. it ft*as made by merely incit
ing the ore in a crucible.
The Great West justly condemns
tho inconvenient location of the ex- j
position buildings, and'says: “The
place selected was to beuctit a few i
laud speculators who secured a ma- :
joritv of the director* of the exposi- [
lion to their scheme.” As the grounds .
are four miles from the heart of the 1
city the visitors mast he to the ad- ;
ditioual expense of car fare back and j
forth which might have been avoided.
The Mining Commissioner!- at Den
ver, met nt the sst. Janies hotel aud j
organized a National Miuiug associa- !
tiou having for their object at pre-.
sent the reduction of railroad fare to
the exposition. We quote the follow- j
ing resolutions adopted:
Whereas, There In now being dis- j
played nt the National Mining In-!
dustrlal Exposition the finest ore ex- I
hihit the world ever saw. aiul be
lieving that the the great
many States atul Territories, upon i
which the success of Western rail- j
roads entirely depend, demand a •
"f*eticral and liberal rodufetiou of pas
senger rates; therefore; be it
Resolved, That tho press of the
States and Territories rehrvscntcd at
the Natioun! Miuiug and Industrial
Exposition be requested to use its In* i
flucitee to have tho railroad eom
panies reduce their rites to Denver
and extend tho time of the tickets.so
as to allow of at least ouo mouths* j
The first inception aud main nc : »
tuatiug idea of au Exposition was up- |
doubled!}* wholly speculative. It was
a scheme to boom into something
more 4 than liomiual existence on !
beautifully lithographed plats, sun-]
ftri* addTtious to*ll»e city. The D. & R.
G 'K.'n, became at once a highly in* I
tertsted party as able to fnrnish
transportation and the circle railway
was built.
Later, a broader, more liberal plan
suggested Itself, aud tlipugh the orl- j
ghfators so tW persisted In fit at mo* !
tire*, as to put the building front |
throe to four miles from the*
main city, yet for an enterprise which j
every Coloradau should look npo* ,
with pride, for already manifested !
results—to bO'inpgttlficd beyond com*!
puttou in permanent advantage to!
the commonwealth, enough cannot j
4m said, Kveu in thl* age of tinpar*
I rstalled scbisriioaiht the ooMtmd
! tiou of • building more than MOrMO
I feet, of imposing height and etohi*
| tcetual beanty, or erf Id and enduring
material, with : complete system ‘
of water-works and sewerage, with-'
in a space of less titan three months
must rank as most wonderful. There
is of coarse inncli to find fault with,
not by tor means unjustly. Exhibi
tors, not marking packages properly
were put to no end of annornncO.iu
getting their exhibits to the Unfitting.
This would hare been an easy mallei
for the Directory and Managers to
and should hare been
done. DiUbntht express aud railroad
companies held freight for charges,
giving «o notice of the fact-and caus-

just $3.00 to unload from cars and
then $3.00 to take iuto the building.
; There is only one place where any- j
j thing to eat can be had inside the
j grounds and this—but wo forbore, it t
j is impossible to do it justice. Never- |
thekss there has never beet! such a j
chnuce to advertise the wonderful
richness of this whole rocky moun
tain region and of our State as being
within lines df travel and ill easy
communication with all the east.
; easily accessible from all parts of the
United States. Although Denver
may realize more immediate profit
from this grand enterprise than out
side town*, other couuties and po’r- j
tions of the state will reap a per-j
manctit benefit from it through many '
years to come. We must not allow j
prejudice or jealousy to interfere;
with any of us to our detriment as .
a community bnt every one should ,
put his shoulder to the wheel for the j
furtherance of our future prosperity j
which this exposition will insure if
properly managed.
