No. 177 shortly after 5 o'clock Wednesday afternoon and that it did not end in a tragedy is little short of the miraculous. Mrs. Robert Cox and her little four-year old daughter. Margaret, had been watching the drill from a buggy on the east side of the grounds and the former was In the act of handing over the reins to her husband at the con clusion of the entertainment when the horse, which had been resting quietly during the marching and count* r marching of the men, tool? fright and started to run.

We present our readers with an outline of the primary law under which the political parties will be organized, nominations made and elec tions held next year, (published in full in the Weekly Record last week: The law is cumbersome, complex, in effective and a disgrace to our state because it carries not only the con vention but the direct system of nom inating as well. Notwithstanding all of that It Is the law and must be fol- | lowed next year. From then on it must be followed in the selection of men to fill every public office, big or little, in the state, until some legisla ture wiser and more patriotic than the one that enacted this dual system of selecting officials sees fit to repeal it. It provide* for old-fashioned caucus es followed by primaries and then a convention or ’ assembly*’ as we must now say. Then it provides for direct primaries at which assembly candi-' dates and petition candidates are voted MAN FOUND DEAD IN ONELY TENT Littleton, Colo., Aug. 31.—Novak j Antony, tv years old. an employee at the Louvlers Powder Work*, south of Littleton, was found dead yesterday afternoon.

Following this come the returns and their canvassing by certain au thorities, then the organizations of all parties, attended only by certain can didates. Then the independent candi dates and after all of that, and many more features not herein mentioned, comes the real election contest. Is it any wonder that men of brains say “No” when the suggestion is made that they be a candidate for some po sition. supposedly of trust? We think I not. Had it been a convention system of nominating or a direct system no . one would have cared but to put the voters and candidates to the trouble of both, the system is certainly unJusL Nevertheless, ns said before, it is the law and the only thing to do is to learn It and follow it. The Chieftain feels that every political party officer in the state should familiarize himself with its provisions so he will know exactly what to expect. It's hard, to be sure, bnt the party whose workers more nearly know the law will" be the party which will more nearly succeed. MARRIED IN WASHINGTON, D. C„ THIS MORNING Mr. and Mrs. D. W.

CANON CITY PROVES HERSELF A 6000 CONVENTION TOWN The very successful entertainment provided by the peopTe here for the officers, representatives and visitors i to thii Knights of Pythias grand lodge, j the Pythian Sisters grand temple and : the encampment of the Uniform Rank j proves that Canon City is a good con- j vention town and knows how to take f care of her guests. The hspitality of , the community as exemplified during the last few days made a favorable impression on the knights and their > friends and they expressed the hope ( that they might be able to come back again sometime to renew the acquaint- f anee so auspiciously begun. The meeting of the Knights of Py thias grand lodge and its associated organizations here this week has been a big advertisement for the town, ; and, it Is believed, is the precursor of a series of similar conventions and J gatherings here within the next year | or two. Having proven its ability to handle such a body without discom fort to delegates and visitors, and, • at the same time, provide them with suitable diversion, Canon City is in better position than ever to go afte* other assemblages of a like character. Already we have the promise of the bi-annual convention of the Epworth League of Colorado for 1912 and efforts are now being made to secure ' the annual conference of the Metho dist church and the state conclave of the Knights of Templar for the same , year. With more than ordinarily at- j tractive scenic surroundings, with a climate as good as that possessed by any community in the west and a people whose hospitality is second to none Canon City will have to be reck- oned with by its competitors In any convention it goes after. PYTHIANS DON’T WANT PLAN OF INSURANCE CHANGED Although the thirty-seventh annual session of the grand lodge, Knights ■ of Pytniaa closed Thursday afternoon • pnd moat of the representatives and \ visitors left for home on the first out going trains others remained over for a day to visit the top of the Royal Gorge and other point * of scenic In terest within easy driving distance c.f town. The grand lodge Thursday morning voted down a resolution instructing the supreme representatives from Col orado to support r. resolution in the supren.e lodge csliin? for the appoint ment of a commission to investigate the insurance department of the or er, known the endowment rank and to endeavor to segregate the in insurance feature from the order. Su preme Representative Charles S. Dav is of Denver, is a member of the board of control of the endowment rank and he contends that that de partment is on a safe and strong basis and has $3,500,000 in good securities to safeguard the future of this de partment. The grand lodge by a majority of one vote decided to amend its con -1 stitution so that the terms of office of certain officers be made six months instead of one year as at present. The feature of the closing sessions of the grant! lodge was the distribu tion of a large supply of fruit from the Canon City orchards which seem ed to be highly appreciated by the re . cipients.

Wortham, alias Joe A. Matth ews, who was arrested at Tacoma last week charged with swindling Seattle banks out of $17,750, turns out to be Thomas J. Murray, alas Mowrey, who escaped from the state penitentiary here July 25, last. Murray had swindled Denver banks out of $15,000 by a clever real estate scheme and was arrested at the union station May 10, 1910, with $14,993 on his person, wrapped about his waist. He was sentenced to from five to ten years in the penitentiary, but while working with the marry gang on the b. :«j of the Hogback six weeks ago he effected his escape. It is believed his wife helped him, being near by with a suit of citizen’s clothes with which Murray was enabled to walk past the guards. He was hunted by detectives over a dozen states, but was caught at last through the shrewdness of a Seattle bank teller. On August 25, Murray swindled Seattle banks out of $17,750 in one day by the same clever tactics he had employed in Denver, but a bank teller happened to notice the resemblance the man bore to the pic ture of Murray appearing in a detec tive bulletin and called up the de tective agency, with the result that Murray was arrested in Tacoma, whither he went from Seattle, and reg istered at a cheap hotel with most of the money on his person. Murray will be brought back to Canon City to serve the remainder of his term and then will be taken to Seattle to answer to the charge of swindling there. Murray has the rep utation of being one of the shrewdest swindlers in the country, but in spite *of that fact Warden Tynan has con tended ever since he made his get away from prison here that it was only a question of time until his re capture.
