EFFORT MADE TO GET PARDON FOR CON VICT RUSSELL BOLLES Much Sympathy is Expressed for the Murderer and an Effort Will be Made to Secure a Pardoa Denver, May 22.—Another effort is to be made to get Russell Bolles out of the penitenttary. Everybody knows who Russell Bolles is. Practically everybody believes he is innocent but someway on another he has never been given an opportunity before the board or pardons to prove that inno cence. Six years ago a boy on the north side in this city was murdered and his sister was outraged. Two years later Russell Bolles was brought back from British Columbia and convicted of ihe crime. His conviction was se cured under an entirely different po lice and criminal court administration and those who worked on the case at the time of the murder have always maintained that an innocent man was convicted. There were a hundred and one things that entered into his conviction that have never been fully explained and that don’t look good on the sur face. Yesterday Governor Shafroth re ceived a letter from C. W. Bond, a DISCUSSED PLANS FOR PROPOSED COLORADO SPRINGS-- CANON CITY HIGHWAY Further plans for the new road from Colorado Springs to Canon City were outlined last night at a meeting attended by the county commission ers of El Paso and Fremont counties, the engineers who will run the sur veys of the proposed new highw r Warden Thomas Tynan, of the Canon City penitentiary, and a number of citizens of both Colorado Springs and Canon City who are interested in the good roads movement. The party returned yesterday after noon from its tour of inspection over the route, and last evening was spent In making notes, etc., of the journey. The new road, according to those who made the trip, will be one of the most picturesque in Colorado, and in addi DR. ALEXANDER J. M’IVOR TYNDALL GREETED BY AN ENTHUSIASTIC AUDIENCE A splendid audience of representa tive men and women gathered at the opera house last evening to greet Dr. Alexander J. Mclvor Tyndall, the fam ous educator and editor of the Swas tika Magazine. The general interest in the subjects classed as New Thought was notice able from the size and character of the audience. The business man, the professional man, the laborer, the so ciety woman and the domestic were all represented in the widespread thirst for entertainment and instruc tion along the line of the New Psy chology. The doors opened at the opera house last night at 7:30 and before 8 o’clock every seat was taken. The house was packed to standing room and many were turned away. Dr. Mclvor-Tyndall’s theme was “Proofs of Immortality,” and the large audience listened in rapt atten tion to the many remarkable state ments made by the doctor, and loudly applauded the numerous proofs that he gave relative to the "after life.” Last night's meeting was a great success, and the startling demonstra tions of mental influence and psychic manifestations were greatly enjoyed, while the hundred or more answers to personal questions, through the power of clairvoyance impression, seemed to afford much interest as well as satisfaction. Dr. Mclvor-Tyndall will remain at the Hotel Denton for a few days long er and can be seen and consulted up on any personal or private matter during his regular office hours. If any question of health, invest ment, business, changes, love, domest ic trouble, or doubt regar Tng a fu ture course of life troubles you, Dr* Mclvor-Tyndall can and will give you the benefit of his wonderful clairvoy ant powers and will concentrate his forces to assist and advise you, while his fee for an Interview Is trifling, compared to the knowledge of the psychic and mental forces which he can give you. prominent publisher of this city, ask ing the governor to make arange ments to allow Mary A. Stephenson to tell him what she knew about the case. Mrs. Stephenson is old and is an invalid. She maintains that on the night of the murder Russel Bolles was with her or rather at a party she at tended. At the time of the trial she was not allowed to testify because she was deaf and could not under stand the questions. She wants ta make a statement to the governor while her faculties are still clear. The governor will, no doubt, invite her to make it before the board of pardons. At one time, when Bolles had his case before the supreme court, he was offered the Christmas pardon and de clined It on the ground that he had done nothing for which he should se cure a pardon. There is not a man in the penitentiary for whom more sym pathy has gone out and in whom more people are interested. tion to its scenic attractions, will cut fully 10 miles from the road that now runs to Canon City. Engineers of both counties who at tended the conference were instructed last night to make their preliminary surveys as soon as possible and to present their figures of the estimated cost of the work. Warden Tynan now has 80 convicts working on the roads near Trinidad, and he hopes that the surveys for the Colorado Springs-Canon City road will be completed within a week or two in order that the men may be put to work at once, so that it will be un necessary for them to be taken back to Canon City.—Colorado Springs Tel egraph. The July issue of The Swastika magazine, which Dr. Mclvor-Tyndall edits, contains some remarkable ex periences in psychic research. The magazine is for sale at all newstands or may be had of Dr. Mclvor-Tyndall at his parlors in the Hotel Denton. WILL ORGANIZE SPORTS MEN’S ASSOCIATION HERE NEXT THURSDAY NIGHT A public meeting will be held in the district court room next Thursday ev ening for the purpose of taking steps to organize a branch of the Colorado Sportsmen’s Assocaition, which Is rapidly spreading throughout the state. The object of the organization is to provide means for the Just protection of game and fish, to assist the state in acquiring ownership of o right of way on all trout streams within its Juris diction and to secure the enactment of Just and equiable laws in relation eherto. The indiscriminate killing of game animals being a prevailing fault calculated to exterminate many of the most valuable species, it has become necessary in order to counteract the same to take Individual and united ac tion in opposition to this destructive tendency. It is realized by sportsmen that if present conditions are allowed to continue it will be but a short time until the opportunity to fish will be in the hands of a few, to the exclusion of theg eneral public, one of the first objects of this association is to se cure for the fishermen of the state the right to fish on all streams by the state. A "moonshiners" outfit brought from the mountains of eastern Ken tucky will be exhibited at the Exposi tion at Seattle this summer. THE CANON CITY RECORD, THURSDAY’ MAY a 7 , igog PROTEST REMOVAL OF CONVICTS FROM LAS ANIMAS COUNTY Trinidad, May 22. —The efforts on the part of the citizens of Fremont county to remove the state convicts now engaged in the construction of the Colorado state highway in this county to that county and place them at work upon the road between Colo rado Springs and Canon City has aroused a storm of protest from the residents of this city and county who inaugurated the work of using con victs in highway construction. Trinidad and Las Animas county have contributed something like $5,000 by free subscription and in addition to this the bill allowing the use of the convicts in road work was fathered by Senator Barela of this county and introduced by him in the state senate two years ago. It has been through the work and with the aid of the mon ey of Las Animas county citizens that the experiment has been proven suc cessful and much feeling exists here over the effort that is being made to bar this county of the benefits uow that it has proven a success. The Automobile club has taken up the matter and the business men of the city and chamber of commerce will bring the matter before Gov. Sha froth at once, W. M. Jamieson, presi dent of the chamber of commerce, be ing in Denver for that purpose at present. TO PROTECT CHILDREN FROM WORK IN FIELDS Denver, May 20.—1 tis said here that the Society of Child and Animal Protection is likely to take cognizance of the situation 6f taking out of school the three or four hundred children who are said to be employed in the beet fields in onrthern Colorado. Most of these children are from the Garden Place schools and it is understood that several other schools are to be besieged for additional child labor. The situation is becoming serious and the state authorities, who have juris diction in such cases, announce that they expect to exercise their powers. These children who have been drawn into the beet fields -are not there without the consent of their parents, but this fact will not prevent the officials from taking action. They come from among the poorer families of the city and usually receive about three months schooling during the year. They leave for the beet fields about the first of May and the work they do is to thin the beets, and later they are put to pulling them, which is said to be very laborious work. When this work is finished -the children are in no physical condition to re-enter school and are in a state of almost physical exhaustion. For this and other reasons, the fight against their being employed at such work is to be made by the of ficials. The officers are to be assisted by members of the Woman’s club, which has been making an investiga tion of conditions. STATE PLANTED TEN MILLION TROUT IN STREAMS IN 1908 There are something like 10,000,000 fish waiting for May 29 to roll around, which is the first day that anglers may try their luck. These figures were learned yester day by County Clerk Sheldon when he was in Denver discussing Ashing laws with Chief Warden Holland. Al together ten million trout fry were planted in Colorado streams snd lakes in 1908. The number deposited last year is more than double that of 1907. While the game warden desires everyone to enjoy fishing, he will be strict with regard to violations of the law. During the present biennial pe> riod, to date 174 persons have been convicted for violations of the fish and game laws, their fines amounting to $8,661, or more than double that of the preceeding year. In 1908 87,856 resident hunting licenses were issued, as against 29,337 for 1907.— Colorado Springs Telegraph. PROF. G. W. WARNER ELECTED SUPERINTENDENT SOUTH CANON SCHOOLS Prof. George M.

SLAUGHTER OF SHEEP AROUSES GOV ERNOR SHAFROTH Ruth left a Cowards Mast Be Jailed* He Declares—“lt Was aa Abomla able Oatrage.” Denver, May 22.—Governor Sha froth was much worked up over the massacre of the 2,000 sheep In Mesa county day before yesterday. “It was an abominable outrage," said the governor. “It was unjustifi able from every point of view. The idea of murdering and wounding in nocent animals because of a bitter feud against their owner is something I can’t understand. I trust the officials of both counties will not stop until every person connected with the ruth less and cowardly attack is in the penitentiary and you can say that if they are ever landed there no pardon will issue for any of them so long as I am governor of this state. “If these men are convicted I will do iny part to see that they serve the terms which the courts impose. These outrages in Colorado must stop. There is absolutely no provocation that jus tifies such an attack of this kind against property in this state, no dif ference what class is subject to the protection of the law and certainly a flock of innocent sheep is just as much entitled to protection as any thing else.” When asked whether he would offer a reward or not the governor said, “I am not quite sure that a reward helps much in convicting criminals. The attorneys for the defense always play on the sentimental end and they use this In an effort to acquit their client. However, I intend to consider the matter and should the county officials see fit to make a request that the state offer a reward it will be given due consideration. “At any rate those men must be un ished and the state must not let up until every one of them is boarding at the Canon City penitentiary." CONSIDERABLE DAMAGE DOME TO TELEPHONE COM PANY BY THE STORM From Saturday's Daily. Considerable damage was done to the ijcal telephone exchange by the electrical storm Friday evening which put a good many instruments out of commission in consequence of blow ing out fuses and carbons. A gang of men have been busy making re pairs today, but will not be able to finish up the job before tomorrow noon. The lightning for a little while was very severe and during its contin uance the rain fell in torrents. A rise of fully two feet was noted on the flow of the Arkansas river, bat It quickly subsided and the river cur rent was normal this morning. It is reported that the volume of water that came down some of the gulches in the foothills of the Greenhorn mountains Friday evening had not been equalled for years at tills season. So far as we have been able to as certain no bridges were washed out and no serious injury of any kind done. The rain was “a clod smasher" and will be worth many thousands of dollars to the agricultural internets of Fremont county.

There is noth ing to compare with the trying, troublesome times of southwestern Arizona thirty years ago. As Interest ing in their intensity today as was the allurements of the rich sulphide ores to the miners in those days are the stories of incidents that may nev er be repeated in any community. Tombstone was headquarters for the great southwest. Northern Sonora and southern Arizona were so far re moved from other settlements that it became the rendezvous of the whole region. Mining men, prospectors and invest ors. cattle kings and cattle rustlers; territorial rangers and self-arrogated regulators; sheriff’s officers and depu ty United tSates marshals all swarm ed to Tombstone as the hub of its own social universe. Army officers in com mand of snuade of companies sta tioned at posts in that region also rave the dignity of their presence in bright uniforms to the motely crowds that made things lively in the dance halls and gambling dens. The pres ence of these numerous officers did not prevent the stage robbers, the smugglers and the border ruffians making it their headquarters as well. In fact, some of these latter gentry were elevated to a rank of respectabil ity by being authorized to wear a star. Outlying camps regarded Tomb stone as the virtual capital of the region. They looked to Its force of of ficials to afford protection in case of trouble and It must be recorded that the responses were more prompt and effect vie than those more modern in official life. F«*ar. coupled wi h hatred of the Apachea. made It p •sslble for the territorial rangers to call out for service a small army of men on short notice. Sturdy young miners were an xious for adventure and bent on re venge for the many bloody crimes of the Indians as well as depredations of outlaws. When a general alarm was sounded by the blowing of three loud long blasts of the mine whistles the men flocked to a central point of the camp. The alarm was the means of distributing the important news of events. A stage robbery, fire or Indian outbreak were each considered of suf ficient Importance to assemble the populace—Field and Farm.
