The only reward they expect is the satisfaction that comes from the con sciousness of success. They realize that in an enterprise of this kind there must be self-sacrifice, and this they are willing to make for the general good. The public at large is also mani festing a laudable interest in the af fair and a great many people have ex pressed to the committee in charge a desire to have a part in file .work to be done. The help and co-operation of the entire community is needed and it is hoped that still others will come forward with proffers of assistance. Clean-up day is almost here and whatever is done must be done quick ly. More teams and wagons are re quired and those who can help in that respect are requested to report it to the committee without delay. It is intended to make next Friday a notable one in the chronicles of the community but it can only be done by public sympathy and helpfulness.

These are all public spirited people, and with the co-operation of the en terprising citizens of East Canon, they will put- the town in the best dress and sweetest smile by Friday evening. Don’t forget that old wire and tin cans are not a good diet for the town’s new mowing machine. Hit the high places with the pick and shovel, the mower will do a neat er job on a smooth surface. We are proud of our streets, but they were not built for implement sheds or cow pas tures; the roof leaks too bad for that, move them in under the apple trees. One family on Greydene prefers flowers to Russian thistle and has planted a row full length of their place. Clean up! Clean up! APPOINTED ASSISTANT UNITED STATES ATTORNEY Hon. J. B.

AUSTRIAN INJURED IN FIGHT WITH COUNTRYMAN Joe Launch, an Austrian, was tak en to Dr. Graves’ hospital Sunday af ternoon suffering from injuries re ceived in a fight with a fellow coun tryman in a drunken revel at their shack in the Royal Gorge, where they have been employed in connection with the surveys for the new water works system. Laurich was badly cut under the right eye and had to be brought here for surgical treatment. He was first taken to John Adamic’s saloon on Prospect Heights and subsequently conveyed to the hospital . His wounds were not serious and he was dis charged from the hospital yesterday. No arrests were made in connection with the case. LOW GRADE MINING PROPOSITIONS IN PARK COUNTY William H. Scott returned home a few days ago from a prospecting trip of several weeks duration in Park county. Mr. Scott devoted the greater part of the time to the country tribu tary to Florissant and Spinney, which he consider one of great mineral wealth, although the ores are mostly of a low grade. He says there is still considerable placer mining along the upper course of the Platte river and that at some points along its course experienced men get as much as fif teen cents a pan from working the sand along the waters edge. In the years to come Mr. Scott thinks Park county will be the cen ter of a great deal of mining activ ity. SAYS GERMANY HAS MADE GREAT MATERIAL PROGRESS Gus Stromberger of Lincoln Park returned home Monday from Ger many where he went something over a month ago to attend a family reun ion, held in conjunction with the sev THE CANON CITY RECORD. THURSDAY, APRIL 16. 1908 entieth anniversary of his mother’s birthday. It had been twelve years since Mr. Stromberger left the Fath erland and he very naturally expected that great change had taken place there during his absence. In this he was not mistaken, although the trans formation exceeded his anticipations. The change in the material condition of Germany since 1906, according to Mr. Stromberger, has been amazing, indeed almost revolutionary. In manufactures, in transportation, in the application of electricity to the mechanic arts immense strides have been made during the last de cade, in short Germany has had her seven league boots on and has taken a foremost place among the nations of Europe. Mr. Stromberger says that everybody over there has got money and that beggary has almost disap peared from the empire. Mr. Stromberger halted,a couple of days in New York City in both the outward and return trip and he noted great changes there since the Span ish-American war, in which he served as a volunteer with Col. Roosevelt’s regiment of Rough Riders. He says the country to the eastward of Colo rado is beginning to look beautiful with the brightness and verdure of spring, particularly is this true of Kansas, which, with its green wheat fields and blossoming orchards, con-. veys to the traveler the impression of great prosperity. Don’t be a knocker. 34 SEAMS OF COAL IN PORTION OF LOCAL FIELD Owing to the fact that Bqwie & Rockafellow, of the new Canon City Coal company, are interested in hav ing a correct understanding, Ql *ay and all of their resources they have succeeded in getting them to depart from the usual custom of such com panies to be reticent regarding the developments we are enabled to state that their investigations In a hereto fore untried portion of the Canon City coal field, shows that their resources in that respect are assured, for at least a century ahead, on a much more extensive scale than has been carried on so far. They selected three places about a mile apart in a triangle to test with i core drill the thickness of veins and the' dip and drainage for the most economical mining. The first, suposed to be at the great*’ est depth in. the basin, they got ad foot vein at 300 feet, thence taking out a core through 535 feet of coal-bear* ing rocks and cutting 34 seams of coal. The bottom 1G feet containing ten feet of the very brightest coal, one of the veinß being 5 feet in thickness. They have now commenced drill ing at the second place. We hope to be able to inform our readers of their progress from time to time. SANITARY LAWS GOVERNING DITCHES NOT OBSERVED The East Canon city council met Monday night. The business of the year was closed, showing ail depart ments in good condition. They then adjourned and the new mayor, E. G. Waite and Trustees Batchelor, Cline and Coding, were qualified and duly installed. An ordinance forbidding stock run ning at large passed second reading. Also an ordinance governing speed of vehicles and autoniibiles. The lat ter was referred back to the ordin ance committee for the insertion of a clause requiring observance, of "the law of the road." No doubt this was suggested by the recent article from Dr. Orendorf. Complaint was made that duo care in observing sanitary laws in regard to the water in irrigation ditches and laterals was not observed. This is very essential to the comfort and health of the people, as the water is used for Ailing cisterns for domestic use as well as for irrigation. Some of the things reported of residents along the ditch, both in East Canon and the city to the west of us, would not look well in print with their names at tached. Attention was called to the fact that the Canon City Hydraulic and Irrigation Ditch company have a standing offer of reward for evidence leading to the arrest and conviction of parties guilty of contaminating the water under their system, and these matters should be reported to the offi cers of said company.

In Canon City public opportunity will be afforded for worship and con templation. There will he services at. Bt. Michael’s Roman Catholic church, Christ Episcopal church and Trinity English Lutheran church. At fit. Michael’s the occasion will be characterized by lessons from “the stations of the cross.” CLEAN-UP COMMITTEE NEED MORE TEAMS Friday evening, April 171 b, at b o’clock, Canon City will be the clean est city in Colorado.

ASKLABOLITION OF THE BILL BOARDS At a meeting of the Civic Improve ment league at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. D E. Gibson Tuesday sev eral matter* of public Interest were iliHciissed In addition to the clean-up ?>ro|>oslt!on for which It was primar ily called, among them being the blll board nuisance and the necessity for better means of exits from the vari ous theatorlums and other places of amuxeinent In case of fire. The bill-boards were declared to be an eyesore to the community and a committee consisting of Mrs. T. M. Harding. Dr. A. T. Clarke and Charles It. McLain was appointed to ask the city council to abolish them as being at once unsightly and unnecessary. In a great many places the bill boards have been done away with as the result of public agitation for thslf removal and there Is no reason why they should he permitted to exist here. They are a disfigurement to the city and are the lurking places of filth and crime. The destruction of the bill boards on the lot between the tele phone building and the First Mefch idlst church a few days ago Is a mat ter for general congratulation aa they were at once ugly and unsanitary. The proposition for better means of egress from the theetoriums was tak en up In the Interest of the pnbffc and a committee appointed to lay the case before the council and request It to enforce the ordinances In relation to the matter. With the great crowdn of people In these resorts especially on Saturday night, a catastrophe would result In the event of fire, or a stam pede of any kind. In the opinion of the Civic Improvement league there Is urgent demand that steps be taken by the authorities to minimise the danger to life and limb from these sources. There wqre. probably, twenty-five or thirty people present at the Qlb son home last evening to consider the plane tor cleen-up day.
