from Colorado Springs to Canon City
were outlined last night at a meeting
attended by the county commission

the engineers who will run the sur

Warden Thomas Tynan, of the Canon

citizens of both Colorado Springs and

A splendid audience of representa

opera house last evening to greet Dr.
Alexander J. Mclvor Tyndall, the fam

The general interest in the subjects
classed as New Thought was notice

the audience. The business man, the
professional man, the laborer, the so

all represented in the widespread
thirst for entertainment and instruc

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

Mclvor-Tyndall can and will give you
the benefit of his wonderful clairvoy

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.

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.

case before the supreme court, he was
offered the Christmas pardon and de

Warden Tynan now has 80 convicts
working on the roads near Trinidad,

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

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.
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
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

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
“At any rate those men must be un
ished and the state must not let up
until every one of them is boarding at

How filled with stirring scenes and
dark deeds is the history of the magic
city of Tombstone that sprang into
being almost in a day. 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

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

populace—Field and Farm.
