Maddox and Alderman Weaber left this morning on a trip of inspec tion and survey to the top of the Roy al Gorge with a view of finding a more practical and economical route than the one upon which the convicts are now at work. The trip was an eminently successful one and they lo cated a road which they believe can be constructed within the next four or five weeks at a comparatively small expense. By taking advantage of a chain of little parks and open spaces they managed to drive a sur rey the entire distance and are of the opinion that a grader can be used in building the contemplated highway through nearly all of the territory traversed by them this morning. There will be practically no rock work and the grade at all points will be an easy one. The proposed route will be staked out in the course of a few days and a number or teams and men will be put to work on the new line. The city will be asked to co-op erate with the business men’s asso ciation in rushing the undertaking to completition. The promoters and friends of the road are determined to have it open for the tourist travel this summer if possible. CANON CITY MONUMENT SHIPPED TO WESTCLIFFE From Monday’s Daily. H. W.

Colorado Springs Telegraph. GOOD TEST FOR QUALITY OF SOIL From Friday’s Daily. In the window of the Minnesota Realty company at 619 Main St, can be seen several cherry twigs, with a fairly good amount of the fruit on them. These were taken from what is known as the “Chamberlin” place, about a mile and a half southeast of the Tong ranch, eight miles east of town, the land being about a mile east of Watersville. The land is owned by C. J. Frederickson. The trees from which these branches are taken have had no irrigation, for fully two years last past, so that such a thing as this certainly speaks well for the quality of the soil in that section.

PITIFUL SCENE PRESENTED AT THE DEPOT MONDAY NIGHT From Tuesday’s Daily. An eloquent, but pitiful, temper ance lecture was presented in the men’s waiting room at the Denver & Rio Grande railroad station about 7 o’clock last evening by a bloated, but kindly faced girl who was being tak en to the home of her mother in Pueb lo by a good Samaritan from one of the dance houses of Cripple Creek, of which she had been a habitue for sev earal years. She was so sunken in depravity as to have almost lost her mind and was unconscious of her sur roundings and of the fact that she was be}ng taken back home to be again made a member of the family circle. Last Sunday a gentleman from Pueblo made an excursion to Cripple Creek and while there learned by ac cident that the girl in question, who was an acquaintance, was suffering from an attack of delerium tremens in one of the wine rooms of the city | and he made haste to do what he could for her, procuring among other things, a physician, to administer an opiate to stop her ravings. Her con dition had so much improved by the following afternoon that he was able to start with her for Pueblo, although she was scarcely strong enough to sit up. He had difficulty in persuad ing her to make the trip and only sue WILL BUILD GRAND STAND THIS WEEK From Monday’s Daily. All of the money needed for the erection of the proposed grand-stand at the baseball diamond on the high school grounds has been subscribed and the contemplated structure will be built this week. It will be 100 feet in length and contain four tiers of seats, but will be without a roof, or other protection to spectators from the rain. Coupon books, entitling the owner to twenty admissions to the ceeded by telling her that they were going on a little excursion and would soon return to Cripple Creek. On reaching Canon City he telephoned the unfortunate girl’s mother of what he had done and asked her to take her erring daughter back to tho shelter of her home, which she consented to do. She had been an inmate of the most disreputable resorts in the Crip ple Creek district for years and a reg ular patron of the grogshops and sa loons of the community until she had lost all sense of shame and womanly modesty. The gentleman rescuing her from her debasing environments stated that she was of respectable parentage and family and that they would make exery effort to redeem her from her evil habits and associ ates despite her apparent incorrigi bility. The poor, friendless girl, hardly more than 20 years of age, at tracted general attention as she sat in the railroad station waiting for the train that was to carry her back to her mother and many expressions of sympathy were heard for her unfor tunate condition. She was a living il lustration of the biblical statement that “the way of the transgressor Is hard ” grandstand, are being sold to raise money to carry out the enterprise; a number of public spirited gentlemen having advanced the cash to build the structure and agreed to wait reim bursement until sufficient coupon books have been disposed of to can cel the Indebtedness. It is expected that the grand stand will be finished by next Friday night. COLLECTING SPECIMENS TO ENCOURAGE THE STUDY OF GEOLOGY From Monday’s Dally. Prof. Blake Warner of ibis city, late superintendent of the pnblic schools at Fowler, Colorado, is devoting the summer to the work of collecting geo logical specimens along the upper slopes of the Sangre de Christo range for the state university. In company with a couple of professors from the Boulder school he is at present en camped at timber line, above Mays ville in Chaffee county, but has thus far been unabie to accomplish very much field work on account of the Snow and the stormy character of the weather up there. Specimens of all of the rocks obtainable in the Rocky Mountains are being collected, and, as soon as they can be asserted and clas sified by the university authorities, sets of them will be sent to all the high schools of the state for the free use of students. Colorado is the first state in the Union to adopt such a system and its success will probably result In similar steps being taken In other states.

FROM KANSAS CITY TO CANON CITY The Story Of The New Santa Fe Trail As Told In A Press Story Being Sent Out All Over Kansas And Colorado. From Monday's Dally. Pueblo, Colorado, June 26. The most successful good roads campaign in the West today and one of the lead ing roads movements in the ontire country, the recent extension of the territory wherein this great highway will be built, and the great interest in a link in what Is hoped eventually to be a coast-to-coast thoroughfare, lends especial Interest to a trip on which A. D. Hamilton has recent’y embarked from Ottawa, Kansas. Mr. Hamilton will traverse the New Santa Fe Trail, which is the official name of thiß great highway, and which closely follows the famous old Santa Fe trail, which extended from Westixm landing, now Kansas City, to Santa Fe, New Mexico, and which began its operation in 1821. Mr. Hamilton and his family will make this journey in an old-fashioned prairie schooner. The modern motor car. now speeding over the fine high way that stretches across Kansas and Colorado, will not be the vehicle In which he and his family will go. They have certain reasons, some econom ical, some sentimental, for follow in* the old trail and the new In the means of conveyance common to the times when each highways were the only avenues of conveyance In the Great So athwart. From Ottawa to Las Vegas will be the route traveled by the Hamilton family. This trip will cover what was set down In the old geographies as “The Great American Desert.” now one vast garden, and. In the territory of the 100th meridian, brought about by means of Irrigation. A. D. Hamilton comes from Cincin nati. and he has long had in mind Jost such a trip as this. He recently went to Ottawa. Kansas, where he has a nephew, T P Hamilton, formerly a car inspector with the Atchison. To peka and Santa Fe Railroad, which traverses the otd trail, and prevailed 1 upon his nephew to accompany him. 1 The party will travel by easy stages "Travel behind a team Is all right.* said Mr. Hamilton. “If you have ' your time. Having time, we favor * this means of transportation.’ Reaching (he f.vnmu* wheat fields of Western Kansas, the Ilatnlltons will help some relatives harvest their gold en crop and then resume their journ ey. They expect to reach Fwts Vegan about the last of August. Tho motor pos-er will be a span of mules and a horse. Six persons will ride In the wagon. A. D. Hamilton Is not new to the prairie schooner busi ness. Thirty years ago he made the trip from Texas to lows In this way The New Santa Fe Trail is a great highway. It is now actually building from Kansas City to Canon City. Colo., and from iJtJunta. Colorado, down to Santa Fc. New Mexico The old trail p-oceeded from Kansas City, to the south of the Kansas river, bearing off all the time to the south until It struck the Arkansas valley about the center of Kansas Thence It follow ed the Arkansas river to I*a Junta, where It bore off to the southwest through Trinidad, Raton and Las Ve gas to Santa Fe. The Santa Fe Trail Is a great road way. and originally ran from Hutch inson. Kansas, to the Colorado state line. It was the outgrowth of a long cherished thought of some Kansas newspapermen, and was agitated In Kansas newspapers nnd commercial organisations. It finally resulted in a great conference at Hutchinson, Kansas. January 31. 1910, when steps were taken to improve township and county roads, east and west, end to end. In such s manner as to make a continuous highway. New bridges were required and were put In; roads had to be straightened here nnd there; new pieces had to be laid out at fre quent Intervals; sandy pieces of road ALL STAR TEAM SELECTED From Tuesday’s Daily. Tho All-Star committee mot last night and selected the nll-star tenni to represent the 8.8.A.L. in the 4th of July game with the Central Chris tian Church of Denver. Kach cap tain selected a team that he thought would be tho best and from these the e mmltlee selected the r.ll-star team. had to be treated after the govern ment sandy-clay plan, and Improved so as to make them like macadam. For the last three months the great est activity has been manifested, and the road was finally put In such good condition, through the use of graders hauled by steam tractors, and by the King Drag, and the construction of new bridges, that an endurance ran was made by ten motor cars not long since, from Hutchinson to Pueblo, 461 miles at an average speed of twenty miles an hour, and the cars went Into each station ahead of time. The Colorado territory was soon ad ded to the highway and only recently the road was extended from Newton to Kansas City, and now forms, In Its entirety. 600 miles, from Kansas City, ■ Missouri, to Canon City, Colorado, where it terminates In the glorious Sky Line Drive, one of the most mag nificent high drives in the world. This Is under the control of an association, composed of president, two vice-presidents, a secretary, aad an executive and publicity commtttoo man for each of the Kansas and Colo rado counties traversed. This assn elation holds frequent meetings aad keeps the work up The local oom mitteeman looks after matters la hfts locality, and reporta at Interval* to the officers of the asslciation The road arver*es in Its original territory the famous Arkansas valley of Kansas aad Colorado, than which there la no finer section of the satire west. Irrigation has made !t what It la. art Intensive farming, the small agricultural unit, with alfalfa and sugar beet fields and orchards fring ing it make travel along this high way a matter of pleasure. Bummer to wrist travel to Colorado by motor car has been greatly stimu lated by the ad\ent of this highway. The headquarters of the New Santa Fe Trail haa dally inquiries concern ing the possibilities of easy travel, and temporary lons of the route have been put out peoding the preparation of a complete, permanent log. In the summer aad early fall of this year, numerous rsna, some endurance, and some of a leisurely nature, will go ov er I ilia rood, and for the motorist aa well as for th# farmer It la a great ad vantage. In the valley that sheltered this great rood making campaign in Its In fancy, and was the scene of Its first achievements. will be held this year the Klghteenth National Irrigation congress. No less an authority than former President Roosevelt called the Nations.! Irrigation congress, “the na tion's greatest development agency.** It haa stimulated every development work In the West for two decades, and will bo the greatest and most com prehensive Irrigation exposition ever he*d In the West, and the work of preparation for It is proceeding rapid ly The possibilities of utilisation of the New Santa Fe Trail In going to tha Irrigation congress has been recog nised, and nt n recent meeting of tha Trail organisation, these possibilities were pointed out In resolutions, and people were Invited to attend this great congress by traveling over the Trail In motor cars. The Increasing number of farmers In Kansas and Colorado owning motor cars has made It probatde that a great portion of the attendance at Pueblo next fall will be In this way. So the New Santa Fe Trail, relic of the Old Santa Fe Trail, which was the highway of commerce In the Oreat Southwest before the days of steam roads, nnd over which Mr. Hamilton will make the trip In the old-fashion ed prairie schooner, will be the scan* of great travel this year, not only by runs or various character, but In at tendance at the Klghteenth Irrigation congress.
