Fremont County* Again Takes an
Honorable Stand Among Repub
lican Counties of the State.
Every Repwllcan Candidate ys the
County Ticket Elected Except
Superintendent of Schools.
Tuesday ended one of tin* hardest
fought political battles that ever oc
curred m Fremont county. Only two
county tickets were in the Held. The
Republican and Mlver Republican
against the Democrat-Populist The
light on the |uul of the Populists was 1
a hard and bitter one. They started
ir. by Claiming everything and made
every legitimate effort Io meet their
claims, but fate and the Republican
party were against them. The story of
“flow It Happened"* we will leave for
the Florence Refiner to tell.
The blow was a nurd one and it
almost killed some of the opposition.
They had never cousidered the propo
sition of the success of the entire
Republican ticket and were not pre
pared for what came. The vote over
the county was «|uite light though it
showed a great Increase for the Repub
lican party. Two years ago when
qiany Democrats voted the Republi
can ticket the majorities ranged from
40U against to 3m) in favor of the Rep
ublicans. This year when the l*opu
lists and Democrats worked together
the majorities ranged from 12 to 750
for Republican candidates.
The election of Tuesday marks an
epoch In the (Kilitioal history of Fre
mont county. That day witnessed the
passing of the Populist party from the
political powers in tills county. It is
more than a victory for the Republi
cans- it is the sealing of the doom of
the opp4>ftltiou for some time to come.
Every candidate on the Republican 1

county ticket with the one exception.
Superintendent of Schools, has been
elected by majorities ranging from 16
up to 750. The complete returns from
*ll the. precincts are not in, still enough
lias been learned to make this much an
assured fact. No victory so complete
and effective has been gained by the Re
publicans since the Populist party came
in vogue, and the victory is greater be
cause the PopulDt party had the
combined and united aid of the 700 to
900 (?) boasted Democrats of the
county. Judge Hayt has carried the
county by something over 202 and Jas.
T. Lock by 419. Even many of the
precinct officers are Republican. In
ration City M. S. Adams was elected
justice of the peace and Geo. Gregory
constable. In South Canon John Storm
and Thos. Prescott justices of the peace
and W, L. Burton constable. The win

era Pieces*
Taking it all in all tht general elec
tion this year is a Republican victory.
: In Ohio the Republicans have the legis
lature on joint ballot. Maryland goes
Republican by a safe majority, giving
the legislature to the U. O. I*. lowa
given a safe Republican vote and the
New Jersey legislature is Republican
by 21 ou joint ballot. rCkuveland will
not be l.'. b. Senator lhi* year.) Repub
lican* elect a Governor of Maaaach-
Unett* by nearly 10U,t«K) majority. Re
turns sboar there are still some Popu
list* in Kalian*, though tbe Republicans
made bis wins. The Republicans will
have eight or ten of the thirteen Dis
trict Judge*. The Republican major
ity is large in Pennsylvania Virginia
still remains Democratic and Kentucky
looks a little Democratic. Much at
teution in tlie east centers on Greater
New Vork. Judge Robt. V. VantVyck,
the Tammany candidate, was elected
Mayor by a safe majority.
In our uwn state of Colorado all is
well. Tlie populist party haa received
an “under cm" they will not soon for
get Fremont set the state a good ex
ample, electing all Republicans save
Superintendent of bcbooia. The latest
reports indicate the election of Judge
Oabberl, tlie Populist candidate for
Supreme Judge of the state, altough
the official count may decide in favor
of Judge Charles 1). Hayt. It is not cer
tain whether l.ock, Populist, or Cham
pion, Democrat, is elected District
Attorney of this the Eleventh District.
John 11. Meserve, the straight Republi
can candidate, will have about fifteen
hundred votes in the district, over a!
thousand of which was given him in
Fremont county.
Lake county elects a full ltepubiieau
ticket. In Montrose the Fopnlist pin
ralities have been greatly reduced. La
Plata goes Democratic: I'itkiu Popu
list, ss usual. Weld county electa some
BepubUcans. Logan divides up be
tween several parties. Las Animas
goes Democratic but R K. Ross, Re
publican candidate for District Attor
ney, Is probably elected. I'ueblo elects
a straight republican ticket.
The mountain counties as a rule went
Populist, still the Republicans win,,
after Jan. Ist, have more of the county
officers over the state than they have
had before in many years.
It is remarkable indeed how much
ignorance still prevails in regard to the
Australian ballot system. It would be
difficult to determine just the number
of people who do not vote as they in
tend, but it is certain that many mis
takes are made and frequently people
rote for those they hare no intention
of supporting or perhaps his Tote for a
friend cannot be counted because of
eoutlicting marks. There is no excuse
for such ignorance. Sample ballots
may always be had for the asking and
lists of nominations are always pub
lished in several papers of the county.
Every voter should know for whom
they intend to vote and where it is
necessary to place the X on the ticket
before they go to the polls. The booth
at the polls is not a place in which to
make up one's mind for whom they
will vote.
The commonest mistakes are made
by those who should know better
Voters who are able to read the papers
should know that they cannot ask the
judges for help while in the booth.
They should know that if they mark
an X opposite an emblem that they
should not make another mark on the
ticket. If they desire to rote for some
persons on each ticket they ought to
know that they should mark no emb
lem but only each candidate for whom
they intend to rote. Host people know
enough to put the X In the liiUs square
space to the right of the emblem or of
the candidate’s name for whom they
desire to vote, but some do not. These
mistakes ere not numerous, still some
such occur each year at all polling
placet. In the election of Tuesday some
rotes were oust for the Silver Demo
cratic party. Such a ballot was a vote
forjudge tiabbart and for no other
man aa no county candidates were on
that ticket. Some voted for the Social
ist Labor party, emblem the square,
and those votes were oounted only for
Nathan L. driest for Supreme Judge.
There were other emblems marked that
cast s vote for no more than one per
son. Some of these st least were un
doubtedly mistakes. Next election
! every one who is not familiar with the
process of voting should acquaint
themselves with a sample ballot and
they will be modi better prepared to
i exercise Intelligently the most valued j
; prerogative of an American citizen.
The went thing for the defeated
tide about a campaign, is the num
ber of disagreeable reminders left on
hand after the election la ever. For
instance, A. F. Alexander has a quan
tity of cards bearing his photograph
with some information about hie candi
dacy, which be will find hard to dispoee
' of. D. J. Houston, late chairman of
the Populist committee, has a quantity
of cheap literature on hands that will
haunt him while it remains unburned.
The erratic Canon City correspondent
of the Florence lietiner will be con
stantly reminded that his effusions
seemed to lose his party more rotes
than they gained. Such Hash is not
often infitiential. The lietiner itself
has on its tiles many articles and edi
torials that will worry and disturb the
peace of its gentlemanly editor many a
night in the future. The worst thing
about writing such stuff is that it. is
never forgotten. The Xews and tiorge
have said little on the subject of local
politics and therefore have made few
mistakes- -their lack of seal may prsy
upon their minds somewhat.
Tub eagle as an emblem was strictly
on top Tuesday. The straight eagla
volea in Cafion were 170 and Florence
178, and all over the county in propor
tion. The vote for John B. Meeerve,
Republican candidate for District At
tomey, shows to some extent what the
straight Republican vote in the county
is. His vote is now 947 and seven pre
cincts to hear from, lit will have
nearly 1100 voters in the county.
Xow that election is over we will
have our exchange editor begin to
open our exchange again. There isn’t
much fun in reading papers from
strange communities when they con
tain nothing but local ptiaUna and par
baps the list of nominations.
The gold reserve in the treasury has
passed shove the 9150,000,000 mark.
Under the last administration it was
below soro and the government was
issuing bonds to raise money for tlya
general expenses.
It is sare to assert that no (own in
the state baa better sidewalks and
poorer crossings than Caftou.pV- Uet
us begin to improve by putting in
stone crossings opposite the puetofflee.
The High School Yell is one of the
progreeeive (Mon City papers. It now
claims to have “more reading matter
than any other*—that is than any other
paper in the High School.
Let us have stone crossings on Main
street at least.
