Hie smelters will soon be running under an enlarged capacity and upon a better and more permanent basis than ever, so wilt the brick plants and all other manufacturing enter prises that contribute to local energy and municipal well being.

Realty never had so stable a value hare aa now and never were the ln qulriea for It by non-resident Inves tors so generous and sincere as at present Land has steadily appre ciated in price here for many years and the maximum has not yet been reached. It was the exception a year or twp ago when the best orchard land sold for as much as a thousand dollars aq,acre; now such property would be regarded a bargain at that price. When eastern people fully compre hend the advantages of Canon City as a place of residence, scenic and cli matic, property here will be double what it Is today. Real estate agents say that they have never had so many inquiries for property here as Is the case this spring and that there Is likely to be more visitors here this summer than during any previous summer. Judi cious advertising has done much for Canon .pity within the last four or five years and the end is not yet. While the motto of the Boosters club. "25,000 population for Canon City In 1812," may not quite be real ised a material advance will be made towards that desired goal. Many new cottages are being built and foundations for a large number of others will be laid as soon as warm weather ‘is assured. Canon City by virtue of Its resources end existing conditions contemplates the future with the utmose compaisancy and sat isfaction. On account of bin ute he Is not so strone as the younger animal and con sequently Is often seen to suffer se eere punishment from the younger and more active sheep. Not long ago a herd of five deer were seen near the track by the train crew. The trainmen love these mountain sheep and deer and eagles, for passing through these lonely canons with no other signs of life they come to regard them with almost human friendship. Camp "Carrier" Is situated at what is called Dunvllle, which will be re membered as the scene of a battle during the Cripple Creek labor trou bles a few years ago and where at least one man lost his life. We do not think the cadets chose this field for their camp on account of its sanguin ary associations, but because It is really a very pretty place, with con siderable space for manoeuverlng and surrounded oa all cides by the moan tains. A pretty stream of cold moun tain water Is near by and wood tor fuel la convenient The discipline of the camp seems to be pood and proper respect is shown the officers by the men. At 10:46 a. m. there -was company drill and ex ercises to the manual of arms. The boys seem to have mads great progress in this Uns during the past tow weeks. Captains Johnson and Btockder han dle their men admirably and we would suggest that In either of theee boys there is apparently good material for West Point The systematic exercise and brac ing air is conducive to good appetites sad while some of the cadets may not show any great proficiency in the drills or target practice yet all seam to score high at meal time. The menu on Thursday was noodle soup, boiled beef, potatoes; stewed to matoes. bread and butter, pickles, cof fee doughnuts and oranges. The boys were lined up.

The decision as tar as can be ascertained, relates solely to the question whether the city had the right to declare the club a public nuisance under the provisions of the ordinance and to abate it as such. It affirms the action of Judge J. W. Sheafor of Colorado Springs, who tried the case in the district court here for Judge Bailey, in granting the club an Injunction restraining the police from confiscating the property of the club and locking its doors as an institution inimical to public morals. It in no wise affects the question whether the club has the right to dispense liquors or not. That proposition was not in volved in the case. Seven or eight months ago the city instituted proceedings against the club under the ordinance defining a public nuisance, and on being taken into the district court, a perpetual In junction was issued prohibiting the authorities from interfering with the affairs of the club. The case was I appealed by the city to the supreme court where it remained for some time before a hearing coaid be obtained On the 20th of January argument eras made before the court, all of the ! judges being present. The city was represented in the case by Bonynge & Ritter of Denver and by Taylor A Sayre of this-city. The attorneys for the Elks club were Waldo. Dawson * Stump and Jeffrey & Stinemeyer. A supplemental case, growing out of the one alluded to. was then insti tuted by the city against the trustees of the Elks club, making them defen dants In a police proceeding In which the question at issue was whether the club had the right under its charter to dispense liquors among its mem bers. This was taken to the county court by the defendants on appeal from the Justices court where It Is now resting. When the injunction case was taken to the supreme court for adjudication an order was made and directed by It to the county court, stopping pro ceedings there In the matter against the trustees until the prior question could be passed upon. The Elks club this morning made an application for a supersedeas for the purpose of stay ing the action of the county court in Warren A.

TAYLOR MAKES A STATEMENT ABOUT DECISION I am disappointed but not surprised at the decision of the supreme court hsa4ed down today in what is known as the Elks club case. It was not a case that forced the courts to decide the pight of a club to sell intoxicants to ita members, but from what I can learn of the decision oyer the phone, the court has pretty effectually settled the question that a club cannot dis pense liquor to its members. This suit grew out of an attempt on the part of the city to enforce an or dinance prepared by the law firm of Waldo and Dawson at the instance of Mr. T. B. Coulter who was mayor at the time the ordinance was passed. Thib particular ordinance declared all places where intoxicants were sold within the limits of Canon City to be a nuisance and directed the marshal to 4hate such places. The city was proceeding to do this when the Elks clah applied for, and was granted, an injdwtion restraining it from enforc ing ithe ordinance on the ground that the ordinance was unconstitutional and wold and no question of the right of the club to dispense intoxicants was involved in the case, at least in no wal that would compel the court to decide the question. The case that was decided in Judge Cooper’s court recently is quite dif ferent. It was one that presented the club question clearly and Judge Coop er decided it against the club, and when this case gets to the supreme court then all questions as to the club’s tights will be settled The only thing I know about the supreme court’s decision today I learned from a talk over the phone with the Anti- Saloon league office at Denver, and from it I learned that the only ques tion decided against the city was that it had not the power to confiscate li quors until proper convictions were had in court, and that there is very cold comfort in this decision for the Elks clUb or any other club that runs a saloon, save and except a little costs that they may recover. I hope to have a copy of the decision tomorrow and then we will know more about It. A. L TAYLOR, City Attorney.

Ma Isa Mas at afalab 1909 09 *•••**>>*•* sui: *' i- a £a» * Municipal Elections In Fremont County Rockrak Foraithed the Only Spirited Contest, Sooth Canon, East Canon and Chandler Each Har ing; Only One Ticket Elections were held in most of the incorporated towns and Tillages of Fremont county Tuesday for the pur pose of choosing legislative and ad ministrative officers, the only excep tions being Canon City and Florence, which are organised under a different character of municipal charter, by which they are constituted cities of the second class. Portland is not incorporated, hence no election was held at that place. In South Canon there was but one ticket in the field, and, as a result, but little interest was shown in the balloting, only 77 votes out of a elec torate of something like 430 being registered. The indifference was due to the fact that there was no contest and to the certainty of a triumph for the anti-license people. The Citizens* party had nominated W. F. Gleason for mayor and H. L. Bowman, W. B. Newton, J. W. McKinley and Eli Elrod for village trustees, the latter for a period of one year, and they were elected without opposition, succeeding W. H. Gilman, F. B. Quinlan and A. 8. Bailey, as members of the village council. The election was a quiet one and was without special incident of any kind. In Prospect Heights there were two matters to be determined by the elec tion, one of them to decid* whether that village should become license ter ritory or not as provided by an act of the general assembly, and the other to elect successors to such members of the council whose term of office had expired by limitation. There was but one list of nominees, that of the Peo ples' party, which fnyoreff dfo saloon proposition. There was no opposition to it and 27 votes were cast all of them for making it saloon territory. Gus tave Oleson was re-elected mayor and i Louis Pirc, Tony Adamic and G. Ric chutti trustees, succeeding William ; Loughertv, John Kemmic and John >Xeusick. as members of the village ! board. Had there been any prohibition sentiment a much larger vote could have been summoned by its opponents to prevent its success at the polls. The people of Prospect Heights seem to have forestalled the citisens of South Canon in making their vil lage saloon territory at yesterday’s election and there appears to be a probability that it will remain so in definitely. Had the matter gone over until the precinct election in Novem ber the proposition would, no doubt, have been defeated by an overwhelm ing majority. It is understood that yesterday's action by the people of the Heights cannot be undone by the voters of the precinct at the next en suing election. In East Canon there was no Issue to be settled and only a small vote was polled. It is certain, however, that the council will be a pretty dry one. Not as many people came out to vote as had been expected, but the number was sufficient to elect the OFFER COMWTTO Three Fine Magazines Given to Yon Free oi Charge The Teat 0«M (HUM »—h IM Mwamtn rat their aab •erlptiea llaU pracUeaHp ea a caafc haala.

The registration of East Can on is approximately 350. In Coal Creek there were two tick ets, the CltUen’s and the Social-Dem ocrat Darid G. Davis was the nomi nee of the former for mayor and was elected over Charles Cowan by two votes. Davis received 62 votes and Cowan 60 votes. For trustees Edwin Copperthwaite, John Green and David Scollick were the nominees of the Citizen’s party while Thomas Evans and Charles Mazarro were the choice of the Social Democrats. All of the nominees of the Citizen’s party were elected, the. various candidates receiv ing the following number of votes.
