Subscription, 11.26 a year, when paid in advance COMPLETE PLANS FOR CLEAN-UP An enthusiastic meeting of the Civ ic Improvement league was held at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. D. B. Gibson Wednesday for the purpose of outlining a program of work for the annual clean-up day, which will be observed on Friday, the 17th inst. All of the officers of the league were present and a resolution was regis tered to make the coming event the most notable in the history of Canon City. W. B. Rowland was made chair man of the clean-up movement and will have general supervision of the work to be done, which will embrace a thorough cleaning of the streets and alleys of the city. A generous co-operation is promised by the public at large, in fact, every body in the community is expected to help the undertaking along as a mat ter of civic pride. Public spirit is appealed to and a hearty response is anticipated. It is an enterprise in which all are in «Bted and much can be accomplished if the preposition is taken up in an energetic manly fashion. In unity there is strength and if the matter Is taken up with a determination to make it the success it deserves to be the town can be made a model of cleanliness without a great deal of In dividual trouble. The city will be divided into dis tricts for convenience, and in each of them, there will be a superintendent whose duty it will be to see that the work is properly done. In this man- : ner a great deal more can be accom- . plished than would be the case under ( a less systematic plan. The entire city will be gone over if the necessary ! assistance is extended to the league , and Canon City will be a “spotless j town” in consequence. Warden Cleghorn was at the meet- ! ing this morning and proffered gener- j ous help from the penitentiary in fur therance of the clean-up movement. He said that he would detail sixty con victs to assist in the work and would loan the city all of the teams at his command to help in the clean-up cru sade. Many other teams, however, will be needed and people who will do nate them for a day’s work are re quested to communicate with Mr. Rowland as soon as possible on that subject. It is only by such helpful ness that the great undertaking can be carried out. To have a part in such a public spirited task should be the desire of every loyal citizen of the community. There should be no excuses in re lation to this clean-up matter; it should be the work of everybody, as all are mutually concerned in its ac complishment. Every man. woman, and child should help it along, for it is only in this way can the best results' be obtained. Property owners should, not wait until Arbor day to clean up their own premises, but should begin at once to rake up the leaves and dry grass and haul them away. What can not be burned at home employ some body to haul away to the public dump ing grounds and thereby simplify the work to be done on the 17th. The cause is a most laudable one The Fremont County .National Bank Canon City, Colorado Capital $lOO,OOO Established 1074 Nationalised 1906 Your business will be appreciated and we are in a position to handle it to your satisfaction OMleats I*4 Directors: M.

Dawson is in Denver on professional business for a few days. Mr. Dawson, who was one of the at torneys in the famous Elks club case, telegraphed this morning that the state supreme court had affirmed the decision of the district court here de nying the right of the city council to pass an ordinance declaring the club a nuisance and proceeding to execute its own mandate without first determ ining whether it had the legislative and judicial power to do so. ALDERMAN D. N. GARRETT IN HOSPITAL AT LA JUNTA Alderman D. N. Garrett, local agent of the Santa Fe railroad, is at the hos pital at La Junta, where he is being treated for a nervous affliction, from which he has been a sufferer for some time. While Mr. Garrett’s condition is not serious it is such as to require several weeks rest and quiet from business affairs. It is probable that he will shortly proceed to Las Vegas. New Mexico, for the purpose of taking advantage of the hot springs there.

THE CANON CRY RECORD, THURSDAY, APRIL 9, 1908 BIG EXCURSION FROM CRIPPLE CREEK YESTERDAY The excursion from Cripple Creek, Victor and surrounding towns to this city Sunday was an exceptionally successful one in all respects. One hundred and forty-one passengers were brought down from the district and they spent the day driving about town, visiting the orchards of Lincoln Park, East Canon, etc. The excur sions from Cripple Creek this year are expected to receive a more gener ous patronage than has been the case for a long time. DETACHMENT OF CADETS VISITED THE DISTRICT Cadets of the Canon City high school who are camped on the F. & C. C. railroad about twenty miles south of here arrived in the district Friday and spent their time between trains sightseeing. There were twen ty members in the detachment which visited here and all apparently enjoy ed the trip immensely. The boys in their natty gray and black braid trim med uniforms look “real pert.” They will remain in camp until Sunday when they will return to their stu dies. The outing is not only afford ing them much pleasure but is invig orating and instructive.—Cripple Creek Times. BUSINESS IS GOOD IN CRIPPLE CHEEK James Moore, confidential clerk to W. A. Matlock, general salesman for the Bearer Land & Irrigation com pany, returned Sunday night from Cripple Creek where he had been vis iting friends for a couple of days. Mr. Moore says business of all kinds is im proving in the district and that the cheapened processes of extraction has enabled mining men to profitably work a grade of ore that was regarded as worthless a few years ago. It is pos sible now* to "work ore carrying val ues of only a few dollars to the ton and make it pay. The closing of the Union mill at Florence on the Ist, inst., necessitates the shipment of all the edpple Creek district ores to Colorado City for treatment. ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION WAS PLEASANT AFFAIR The completion of their first year in business here was celebrated by Mo ritz Bros., the Main street clothiers, with an "Anniversary opening." at the store in the Harrison block Saturday afternoon and evening. There were many visitors, especially at night, and cigars and carnations were given away by the hundred. Their place of business was brilliantly lighted in the evening and an orchestra, half hid den behind a screen of palms and ex otic plants, discoursed sweet music for the delectation of the guests. That the occasion was appreciated by the public was evidenced by the throngs of people who called to pay their re spects to the enterprising proprietors of the store. It will promote the am bition of the firm to "get acquainted." HERB BOWLBY MARRIED IN CHEYENNE LAST SUNDAY Herb Bowl by, and Mrs. Friede Schroeder were married in Cheyenne.

Several of the aldermen bad previous ly made an inspection of the locality, but never until this afternoon had the council been there as a body. It Is re ported that there are several things to commend the place aliuded to as a reservoir site, not the least of which is Its greater economy over the loca tion near Alpine terrace.

Baldwin and Hewitt, prom inent New York capitalists, arrived here from the ea»t on the Santa Fe train Monday morning for the pur pose of making a personal investiga tion of the resources or the Canon City district with a view to their de velopment. They have had in mind some Colorado investments for a long time, but not until the present have they had an opportunity to visit this state and look into the advisability of such a course. They ate accompanied by an ex perienced civil engineer who will re port to them upon the various prop ositions submitted to their considera tion and his recommendations will be influential in determining their action in the premises. In the opinion of Messrs. Baldwin and Hewitt the force or the panic has been spent and the idle capital of the country will soon seek remunerative investment, par ticularly in gilt-edged western securi ties. Until the financial clouds began to lift it was folly to discuss the ex ploitation of any sort of Industrial en terprises. but now that a better day is dawning there is a relaxation in the money markets of the country and capital is beginning to And its way back into the channels of Investment and trade. Messrs. Baldwin and Hewitt are uot in any sense promoters of commercial enterprises of any character; they are men who have retired from active business, and, having made their “pile,” have little to do but clip the coupons from their securities and at tend to the re-investment of their ac cumulated capital. It is understood that they are greatly pleased with Canon City and its surroundings and there is more than a possibility that they will find something here that will please their fancy and enlist their capital. We have no doubt that care ful Inspection will convince them that the advantages of Canon City as a field for Investment are not exceeded anywhere in Colorado. Messrs. Baldwin and Hewitt were taken for,a drive to the top of the Royal Gorge today, an excursion they greatly enjoyed. The scenic beauties of the trip were the subject of much complimentary oomment by the visi tors.

A day on two ago Dr. Orendorf had his at tention called to some careless driv ing on Main street, which came near resulting in a serious accident, and since then he has begun a crusade which he hopes will minimize the dan ger of collision between vehicles of all kinds. In the case referred to the trou ble grew out of the drivers of the approaching vehicles falling to recog nize the inexorable law df the road, which demands that each must turn to the right. One of the drivers wns apparently uncertain as to what he should do to escape the threatened catastrophe, the other, either through indifference or wilfulnees, having made It Impossible to keep on the right side of the street. Both were driving rapidly and that a smash-up did not take place was little short of miraculous.
