KIRKLAND GETS PEN TERM Pleads Guilty; Gets from 10 to 13 Years. Morris Kirkland, the last of the trio of prisoners in the county jail charg ed with killing Dominick Machino at Portland in this county on Juns four teenth. through Messrs. McLain & Pease, his attorneys, this morning entered & plea of guilty to robbery in connection with the crime alluded to and was sentenced by Judge Wilkin to a term of from ten to thirteen years in the penitentiary at hard la bor. Kirkland is believed to have been passively opposed to the murder of Manchino, and that fact, coupled with his services to the prosecution In the trial of Bosley and Smith, his associates in the crime, by turn ing states evidence resulted In his being arraigned for a less serious offense than the others. Kirkland was taken to the penitentiary by s deputy from the sheriff's office this afternoon to begin his term of punishment. Be fore pronouncing sentence on the prisoner Judge Wilkin delivered to him s homily on the evils growing out Down the St. Lawrence to Old Quebec Quebec. July 22, 1911. This has been one of the moet de lightful days in my memory. The trip down to Quebec from Montreal | Is like that from Kingston to Montre | al. All day long you are on the bread 1 St. Lawrence It becomes a little wider as you go down and the water is smoother. Above Montreal are the rapids and it takes a special boat to "shoof them. The rapids are rapid all right and the big boat dances along over the big waves much like an ocean steamer over the rough waters, only you are rushed on down nil the time. The rive" here is so swift of course that no boat can go up against the stream. I*arge canals run alone the bank around several of the rapids and the boats go bark • through the canals. •• • • ' We had a most unexpected pleas • ure today in being the guests of the White Star Idne on their big new boat which took us from Monteral to Quebec. It is a new ship built by the White ! Star 1-lne for travel between Mon -1 treal and Liverpool. It started out this morning for Liverpool and all the people Aboard besides our party were going across the Atlantic. Many of us from the inland had never been on an ocean steamer and the experience was a pleasant one The Laurence is not one of the largest boats but it Is one of the newest and most modern. It carries every comfort known to the modern hotel aud comfort and luxury are felt on every hand. It's dining rooms, parlors and re*»t rooms are larger and more elegant than those of the Brown Palace Hotel In Denver and , it has a capacity of 2,000 people. It , • arries a laundry, barber shop, curio j ■tores, a bar. a wireless telegraph office, and about everything you would And in any t»|g city hotel.

The punishment of Bosley, Smith and Kirkland for the brutal murder of Manchino has been brought about without unnecessary delay and has been severe enough to satisfy the de mands of justice. MISS EMMA QUINLAN OF OUTRE MARRIED LAST WEEK Miss Emma Quinlan, formerly of this city, but for several years past a resident of Olathe, Colorado, was married to T. C. Anderson, of Olathe, on Monday of last week. The wed ding took place at Montrose and was solomoni/ed by Rev. Pickin, pastor of the United Presbyterian church of that place and was a very quiet af - fair. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs F. B Quinlan and is a young woman of many graces and accom plishment* She is a graduate of the Canon City high school and for a couple of years a student at the state agricultural college at Fort Collins. The announcement of Miss Quinlan's marriag* was a surprise to her friends here. Irving Stockton returned home Fri day night from a six weeks* business and pleasure visit to Kansas City, Chicago and other eastern points. He reports an astonishing range of weather In Chicago and vicinity dur ing his stay in the region of the Great Lakes; there being a variation of fifty degrees in the course of a few day* The mercury at one time revealed a temperature of 106 degrees and at another only 56 degrees; mak ing g top coat a very comfortable ad dition to one's wearing apparel on the latter occasion. Mrs. Stockton who grompanied him on his out ward trip, came home a couple of weeks ago. • This is the ship that brought the lx>ndon police over who captured Dr. • Crippen, the London wife murderer, through our section. It may not be generally knowu but this is one of the pleasantest ways of going across the water. By taking the steamer at Montreal one has two days on board before the rough water is encountered, and one has a few good meals before sea sickness puts him out of business j There is sn advantage in getting ac customed to the ship before that event happens. And aside from all that days travel anywhere is more delightful and interesting than two days on the St. Lawrence. The approach to Quebec is over historic waters—and it is a mag nificent sight. No matter what you may have read of Quebec you will not be disappointed when you go there. It is a charming combination of beautiful naturgl scenery and his toric surroundings Queliec is French. It is as much French as the north coast towns of old France. Ninety of the people there are French and many of them do not speak English at all \N e met many people In stores and on the streets who could not under stand English. In every way Quebec is so French, it is like a little secti n of old France set down on the Amer ican coast. I have learned so much of Interest about old Quebec that I never knew before that I think 1 must write a special letter about It some day when I have more time If my readers know us little as I knew yesterday about Quebec 1 believe such a story will be of interest.

Racing and Amusement Features to Be Best In Its History. Never has the outlook for the Fre mont county fair been quite so encouraging as It is at present and Secretary Rowland and the board of directors of the association are work ing hard to make the annual exhibi tion next month the best in all re spects in its history. In no previous year have conditions been more fav orable for a splendid display in all of the departments, and never has so general an interest in its success been shown by the public at large. Already a large amount of fruit and other perishable stuff for the hortl cultural and farm products section has been placed In cold storage with the Canon Crystal Ice company and iwll be taken care of there until placed on display six weeks hence. The request for storage room at the ice plant in which to keep specimens of orchard, garden and field products has never been so great as it is now and It Is certain that when the fair opens the exhibit in the main building will sur pass in quality and comprehensiveness anything of the kind ever seen there It is the ambition of ths association to make every feature of the fair this year of unusual excellence and noth ing will be left undone to show the resources of the county in such a way as to elicit the admiration of the visitor; affording at the same time an entertainment in the ring that will gratify the most exacting of its pa trons. Assurance is given that the racing and "wild west" program will be the best ever given here, if not in the state. More entries have been made for the speed ring than ever be fore known so long in advance of the fair and exceptional sport is promised to devotees of the race course Some of the best horses west of the Missouri river will compete for the prices and now speed records for the local track are expected to be established in both trotting and pacing. as well as it bronco busting and relay racing.

Washington, where he expects to remain for several months Mr. Bowman, who visited Canon City twelve or thirteen years ago, was sur prised at the growth of the town since he was last here. A few days ago he was taken overland to Colora do Springs and up the cog road to the top of Pike's Peak, an excursion that pleased him greatly. >O. 24.
