SOCIALIST NAMES WILL GO ON THE OFFICIAL BALLOT lodge Thomas of Cripple Creek Held That the Second Ticket Filed by the Socialist Committee was the Legal one and the Coonty Clerk was Ordered to Certify it to the Printers of the Ballot. The application tor a writ of man damus sued out of the county court Saturday afternoon by J. F. Fuller, Chas. C. May and C. M. Pollard to compel County Attorney Geo. P. Nix to show cause why he had refused to certify the Socialist ticket filed in his office on the 17th Inst., to the printer and thereby allow it to go upon the official ballot to be voted November third was heard by Judge Thomas of Cripple Creek here Monday afternoon and the petition granted. Hardy Sayre appeared as attorney for the complainants and Lee Cham pion of Florence and Judge Schwet gert of this city for Mr. Nix, whose contention was that Inasmuch as two tickets had been filed by the Social ist party, both of which purported to he genuine, he had no right to say which was entitled to preference In selecting one of them to go upon the ballot. After a somewhat exhaustive argument of the case Judge Thomas held that the ticket filed in September had nullified iteslf by reason of the fact that none of its nominees for office had signified their acceptance of the same as provided by law. It was asserted by Judge Thomas that to have certified the first ticket, which had invalidated itself by the statute of limitations and was without candi dates owing to the neglect of its al leged nomnees to comply with the provisions of the law, would have been to disfranchise the Socialist party of Fremont county, as their nominees for office could not appear upon the ballot. FACTS AND FIGURES ABOUT KANSAS-COLORADO ELEC TRICAL TRANSMISSION CO. Pew of our people as yet realise the immensity of this enterprise, and few er yet can grasp the idea of the great benefits to be derived by our commun ity from the completion of the work. The people of the lower Arkansas valley in eastern Colorado and Kansas are thoroughly aroused over the plans. To them the matter of the building of & railroad of three or four hundred miles to be operated by electricity, al though of itself of great interest and benefit is of secondary consideration. The idea of pumping water for irri gation is the central thought with these people. We are proud of the irrigated area of Fremont county and well may we be, but with our magnificent showing we have, outside of the Beaver Land 4b Irrigation Co’s, project, approxi mately 35000 acres of irrigated land. Here is a field of 7000.000 acres, or twenty such counties. Well may we stop and gasp when we try to comprehend the immensity of the prospects, the many hundreds of thousands of happy homes and people drawing on nature’s unlimited warehouse, wealth and happiness, without stint, guaranteed by the suc cessful operation of this great propo sition. However, we say. what is all this to us? DIED AT MINNEQUA HOSPITAL IN PUEBLO SUNDAY MORNING U E. Harbaugh. late resident at 1210 Park aveune. Lincoln Park, died at Minnequa hospital at Pueblo at 5 o’clock Sunday morning from blood poisoning resulting from internal in juries caused by a fall while picking apples on the McCumber ranch, near Brewster, one day last week. Mr.; Harbraugh’s condition was known to' be serious at the time of the accident and its fatal termination was not greatly surprising to his friends. Deceased was a native of Ohio and was 58 years of age. Besides a wife and five children he leaves an aged father, six brothers and one sister to mourn his death. Two of his brothers one of them living at Colorado Springs and the other at Garden City, Kansas, are expected to arrive here evening to attend the obeequies. Mr. Harbaugh was a member of the Tnltsns faith and the funeral will place at Trinity Lutheran church at t tra look Tanadar afternoon. Rev. C. ■.

The second objection present ed by Mr. Nix to the Socialist commit tee concerning its ticket, which was that the signatures of two of its can didates for county office differed from what seemed to be their autographs as appended to the petition, was over ruled and the signature as It appeared in the acceptance of the nomination held to be the rightful name of the one to go upon the ballot. The order of Judge Thomas requir ing Mr. Nix to permit the Socialist ticket filed by Mr. Fuller ,et al., to go upon the balot closes the con troversy between the county clerk and the socialist committee, which has caused considerable interest here In view of the possible effect it would have on the result of the a n roaching election. The Socialist party has a following of several hundred voters in this county, many of whom reside in the coal camps. Two years ago It gave William D. Haywood, then a can didate for governor of Colorado, be tween five and six hundred votes. Since then it is claimed by the lead ers of the party that it has grown In numerical strength and that it will muster a considerbale larger force next Tuesday. Whether its support will he given to its party ticket or di vided among the dominant political organizations remains to be seen. It means much. The people now liv ing in the lower Arkansas valley are very anxious to be connected with us by a people’s road. They want the benefit of our vast mineral wealth, such as coal, marble, stone, cement, and the various products here pro duced and they realize that with such a line they could have these things at a greatly reduced price with freight rates made more reasonable. They have not forgotten that Roose velt, frequently expressed, a fact, which we would like all the world to know, that this is destined to be the play ground of America. They say that they want to come to the moun tains quite frequently; that they have been visiting Colorado Springs quite frequently iq the past and with a di rect line at a reasonable rate they would be glad to make Canon City their mountain town. With the line in operation between Garden City and Canon City there must inevitably follow the building of the line to the top of the Royal Gorge. Should local interests not construct the line at once these people could doubtless be induced to take hold of this. In view of these facts it certain ly behooves our community to begin to “sit up and take notice.” Phone your Dally Record Want Ads. to Canon 111. ing rooms of Hawley & Son., where they will remain until the hour desig nated for the funeral.
