The Canon City Glee club was present, and rendered as ita first se lection, “Larboard Watch Ahoy.'* The applause was liberal and continuous, and they were compelled to respond; to an encore, presenting a campaign, soog which was a parody on "March-’ ing Through Georgia ” Chairman' Blunt then Introduced the candidate for governor as a working man and statesman, and I. N. Stevens as an academic and cultured attorney and an orator of gr»*at ability. Senator John B Stephen was the first speaker and as he walked for ward. after his introduction by the chairman, he announced in well se lected and measured language that he then and there Issued a challenge to any one, either In the hall or else where to refute or attempt to question the accuracy of anay statement made by him. He was met with much ap plause His earnestness deeply Impressed the audience, and he was given rapt attion. throughout. He stated that It was the Republi cans In the senate who had brought about the initiative and referendum, and cited that the bill the Democrats In the senate attempted to pass con tained a clause requiring fifty one per cent of the people to vote upon. be fore It became effective, and that the opposition of the Republicans killed this Iniquitous bill, and forced for ward the present bill which could only have passed with their support Having by this time set aside any doubt as to his position upon the Init iative and referendum before the peo ple he pasaed to other matters. He stated that had Governor Sbaf roth used the legitimate power of his office, he could have forced through the passage of the seven paramount Issues, In other words, had he refus ed to sign the appropriation bill for the pay of the members, he could have made them be good and support the bills, with the alternative of getting no pay if they did not. He further state*! that the Demo crats had promised the people a head less ballot, but Instead had given them 165 days of a Headless legisla ture. Mr Stephen stated emphatically that he would be elected, and that upon hit Inauguration would prove by his actions that a workingman oould and would govern Colorado with busl nesa acumen, atateamanahlp and ex ecutive ability. Mr. Stephen made a splendid Im pression. hi* remarks were driven home with an earnestnesa that none could question. I. N. Btevens delivered the principal address of the evening. Beginning with a splendid tribute to the hon esty. ability and cleanliness of Chaa. A. Wilkin, of Falrplay. the candidate for district Judge, he took up the nat ional questions and arraigned the Democrats for Ignoring the opportun ity at the present time to amend the Constitution of the United States, per mitting the passage of an Income tax law. Mr. Stevens opened his speech with the statement: “There has been much misrepresentation in various Demo cratic papers of the attitude of the Re publican congressional candidates. Everyone of those candidates accept ed the doctrines of Republicanism as embodied In the National and State platform of the Republican party.

This is the way Clyde C.

It is not known exact- i ly at just what time the robber or I robbers got in their work, but It was < undoubtedly some time after the night ■ city marshal had made his last round i which was some time between twelve i and one. Everything was perfectly; secure at that time. The perpetrat- 1 ; ors of the deed affected an entrance , by breaking the glass in the right hand portion of the large double door ! < in the front entrance. This was ac-: complished by the use of a large stone which must have been thrown’ with much force for it was found in the main aisle of the store about half, way to the rear. Small particles of glass were lying in its trail. The! person who threw it must have stood j in the street and with accurate aim broke the glass so that the night catch on the Yale lock was easy of access. After affecting an entrance matters were decidedly simple for the Intruder for in the haste of a late 1 closing the evening previous Mr. Mc | Clintock had forgotten to lock his safe securely. The safe is near the rear end of the store on the right hand side of the main aisle. How ever, It is hard to find owing to the fact that several show cases and other furniture obstruct a clear view of it until you are right upon it. This! fact seems to Indicate that the cul prit had some previous knowledge of! the Interior of the store. There was approximately one hun dred and fifteen dollars in the safe last night although Mr. McClintock had not counted it. He said when In terviewed this morning that he had seventy-five dollars in currency In a small drawer In the safe and this was the amount that was taken. Besides this there were forty dolla •* In sli ver In a small canvas bag In a pigeon hole Just above the drawer. This amount was left undisturbed for rea- MEMBERS OF GREEN WOOD POST ENTERTAINED BY RELIEF CORPS * From Friday's Daily. , Of the many social gatherings held I in Shaeffer's hall since its dedication | to the u>es of the patriotic and ben evolent organisations of the commun ity none have been more enjoyable than the reception and entertainment given there last night by Greenwood Women's Relief Corps in honor of the ‘ , members of the Grand Army of the; Republic and the Sons of Veterans. Following the business sessions of t the post and of the camp some two ( score or more ladies representing the corps marched into the hall and took possession. As they brought with them all of the essentials of an intel lectual and gastronomic feast no pro test was made to their admission, in ' deed, the presence of the visitors was welcomed, for it presaged an af- 1 fair of pleasure. After greetings had. been exchanged and the surprise of the occasion had worn away. Mrs. J. F. Marr read a charming paper of a semi-historical character pertaining to the origin, organisation and pur poses of Women's Relief Corps that • was highly appreciated by all pres ent. Mrs. Marr is a clear, forceful entertaining writer and wh&t she had to say was of Intense interest. It may not be generally known, but is a fact. ■ nevertheless, that the Women's Re lief Corps, now one of the most in fluential patriotic orders in the United States was organised In Denver in 1883. Comrade O. S. Reed on the part of “the boys in blue” made a most pleas ing talk on what the corps has ac complished and what its ambitions are in matters of benevolence and in “keeping the wolf from the door” of those who suffered, whether upon the field of battle, or In the discharge of an humbler, but no less patriotic duty at home, during the four long years of the Civil war. Another feature of the program were the readings of little Miss Cheney of Lincoln park. Al though only ten years of age Miss Cheney is an elocutionist of ability and accomplishment and her work as an entertainer was heartily applaud ed. While Mrs. Marr was delivering her address Comrade M. R. Oer sons at present unknown. It is thought, however, that owing to the darkness it wag unnoticed by the rob ber. The money drawe.* which is on a desk right near the front door was left open and contained a great deal of small chaage. These two instances where considerable sums of handy loose change were * left undis turbed makes It appear that the work was done by amateurs. Everything about the affair shows haste and a great deal of clumsiness, so much so. in fact that the front door was left ! open after the Intruders had made j their exit and was found In that con ' dition this morning when McClintock came down to open his store. None of 1 the stock in the store was disturbed | and it is clear that the robbery was . for money alone. Whether the person who accom 1 pushed the crime had some Idea that that the groceryman had departed for [ the night with his safe insecurely i locked or not is a mooted question, i It is a fact, however, that Mr. Mc- Clintock almost invariably sees that everything is secure for the night be fore he leaves for heme but last night he explains that he was unusually rushed Just at closing time and did not get ready to leave until quite late. He wanted to get home in a hurry, and. never having been molested be fore, he did not worry about leaving the safe open. This morning when he found out the condition of affairs he remember ! ed that he had noticed several unus ual characters about the store along about aix o’clock, but can attach no particular evidence to them. There seems to be no tangible clue by which to gain trace of the culprits for al though they did a bunglesome Job they left nothing by which they could be detected. The stone they used to break the window was a species of topaz, but as there are any number of such stones lying about the streets of Canon City this would be of no particular importance. aghtv, of Lincoln Park, who was present at the hall, hastily wrote the following original tribute in verse to the Women's Relief Corps, which was read by Mrs. T. B. Coulter: You have always helped poor weary Veterans, Their heavy load to bear. For every generous act of yours Has cheered a heart some where. You have ever tried to lead some grieving Veteran, To know that loss is gain. And helped his shadowed sou to light. ' Which shows that you have not liv ed in vain. You have worked to help bewildered Veterans. To find life's grandest clew. You have tried to steady their falter ing feet. And h«*lp their hearts be true. You have always brought a tender touch. To their lonely couch of pain. And whispered words of hope ana strength. Which shows that you have not lived In vain. You have always given disheartened Veterans, The impetus they need. You have tried to rescue the oppress ed from hands. Of cruelty and greed. You have tried to bring concord an 1 love. Where strife and hatred reign. And be a friend to friendless Veter ans. Which shows that you have not lived in vain. You battled for us old Vets, Though you had some worldly cur rents to stem. You have given us the hand of fel lowship. where. Perhaps. Other hearts condemn. You have grown strong to do and boar. Amidst life’s stress and stain. And made us better in every way. Which shows that you have not lived in vain. You have given forth sympathy. And kept a heart of youth. You have helped us old Veterans, To grander heights of truth. However small your part may be. To cleanse the world of stain. We can never forget your noble work. Which shows that you bar® sot lived In vain. SEVEN
