Broadway Bank, Denver. E. F. BURNETT The Eye Sight Specialist pall bearers, six in number, were cow boys and wore about their necks black silk handkerchiefs, instead of the ban dana, so common among the catlemen of the mountain region. The pall bearers rode on horseback at the side of the hearse from the undertaker’s chapel to Lakeside cemetery, where the interment took place, while imme diately preceding the funeral cortege was a company of thirty rough riders. It was the first time that mounted pall bearers had ever been seen here, and, with the cowboy guard of honor, attracted much attention as they rode slowly and reverently through the streets to the last resting place of their deceased comrade. The floral tributes were unusually elaborate and costly, fifty dollars be ing spent by the cowboys alone for flowers to lay upon the coffin of the dead. There was no service at the cemetery beyond a simple prayer and lowering into the grave of the casket of the deceased covered with beautiful flowers, the symbol of loving memory.

On returning to town, Mrs. Wells, mother of the deceased, shook hands with every member of the cowboy contingent and thanked them for the respect which they had paid to the memory of her son.

SEPT. 30, 190;) TRIAL OF TONY ADAMIC ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON ATTRACTED ATTENTION (Continued from pa; e 1) a city for purposes of an election of county or city offices.” The defense contended that under this definition a precinct within the meaning of the local option laws is only such a precinct that Is a part and does not cover a country precinct lllce the one in question. The defendant further contended that the town of Prospect Heights had an election in April 1908 in which the question, “Shall this be anti-saloon territory?” was almost unanimously voted down and that said election was a bar to the re-submission of the same question insofar as any of the territory Included within the town of Prospect Heights was concerned as the law expressly states that: “A vote under the provisions of this act In and for any political sub-division, shall be a bar to the submission to the voters thereof as applied to that identical political sub-division or district only, until after the lapse of 23 months.” There was a further defense that the returns of the election board had not been signed by two Justices of the peace and that they did not cover the matter of the submission of the liquor question and the result. This was true, but at the request of the district attorney the board of canvassers was re-convened several days ago and an amended certificate was made out and properly signed and filed in the office of the county clerk, which nullified the objection. The prosecution offer ed ample authority that the canvass ing board had the right to make this amendment. The prosecution relied upon the case of Schwartz versus the People, decided by Justice M. S. Bailey of th«. supreme court in July of the current year, where he held that It is the pur pose of the local option statutes of Colorado to give opportunity for the extension of anti-saloon territory, and that under the statutes in operation lere the larger sub-dlvlslona control the smaller sub-divisions within it when they vote at the same time, pro vided the larger aub-dlvisions vote “dry” and the smaller sub-division vote “wet." But If the larger sub !! visions vote “wet” and the smaller ones vote “dry" then the smaller does not control the larger, but the smaller become and remains anti-saloon terri tory. Justice Bailey held that the local option statute of this state creates a rule that does not work both ways. In the Swartz case ward No. 12, In Denver, submitted to its electors the question should It become anti-saloon territory. At the same election pre cinct 4, which was one of the sub-di visions of ward 12, submitted to Its electors the same proposition. The vote In ward 12 when taken as a whole resulted in ’yes." The vote in precinct 4 of the same ward npon Its submission voted "no." Schwarts’s saloon was in precinct 4. and he con tended that the vote was controlling as to the precinct. He was convicted in the lower court and the supreme held that the conviction was right. The regular meeting of the Friends in Council for the coming club year will be held at Shaeffer hall at two o’clock next Saturday afternoon un der the presidency of Mrs. Chas. E. Waldo, “Art and Craft" will be the subjects of the club’s study this year. OVERTAXED Hundreds of Canon City Readers Know What It Means The kidneys are overtaxed; Have too much to do.

When Doan’s Kidney Pills were brought to my attention, I procured a supply from Hunter Palmer’s drug store. Their use soon relieved the pain and lameness and restored my kidneys to a normal con dition.

Bartlett is back from a week’s business trip to Am&rilla, Texas. an<f points in Oklahoma and adjoining states. Mr. Bartlett says that nearly all Canon City people who go away from home, either on business or on pleasure, return here with a keener appreciation of its attractions as a place of residence than before, and that he is no exception to the rale. Canon City, according to Mr. Bartlett, has no rivals in this section of the country as a place to live and that people who leave here to improve their condition, in a majority of cases, find only disappointment. Canon City is not a whit behind similar commun ities In Texas, or elsewhere, in a material prosperity and to leave here In quest of something better is as futile as the search of the ancients for the Golden Fleece.
