RIVER CLARIFICATION CASE CALLED MONDAY AFTERNOON The Arkansas river clarification case, perhaps, the most famous pro ceeding of its kind ever submitted to a Colorado tribunal for adjudication, was called for trial before Judge Wll ; kin in the Fremont county district court here late Monday. It was . set for a hearing at 10 o'clock this morning, but the details of the pro j cedure required considerable discus sion on the part of the attorneys in in- I terest before an agreement could be j reached and the delay in taking the , matter up was unavoidable. The suit is brought by the Cities of j Pueblo and Canon City against the 1 Twin Lakes Placers company, Limlt j ed, and is for the purpose of securing a permanent Injunction to compel the defendant company to desist from the ! further pollution of the waters of the Arkansas river by washing into it 1 vast quantities of mud and mineral matter in its placer operations at Cache creek, In the vicinity of Gran ite. The Twin Lakes Placers company has not been working its Cache creek properties this summer on account of a temporary injunction granted the complainants last spring, and it is this state of affairs they are now en deavoring to have maJe permanent. The agitation for the clarifying of the Arkansas river began many years ago and has been continued at inter vals ever since. In 1906 the sum of one thousand dollars was raised at Sallda, and like amounts at Canon City and Pueblo, to Institute suit to stop the placer workings at Cache creek If possible. Committees from the various towns specially interested in the clarification of the river went before the sixteenth and seventeenth genera] assemblies of the state In an effort to get a law passed covering the placer operations in question, but w - •• CANON CITY RECORD* THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1911. they were unsuccessful in their en deavors owing, It Is said, to some se cret influence which worked in oppo sition to them. The case is one of state-wide inter est and the outcome of the trial now in progress will be watched with great concern by the people of the Arkansas valley from Sallda eastward to the Kansas line, its trial will, in all probability, last all of this week as a great deal of expert testimony will be submitted by the coinpalinants, lending to prove thut the river water is rendered unfit for drinking pur pose without Alteration In conse quences of the hydraulic mining car ried on by the defendants, to this pro ceeding.

PLEASANT TRIP THROUGH MICH IGAN BY ROGKVALE COUPLE Mr. and Mrs. L. L. Job, of Rockvale, have just returned home from a very , pleasant trip of a month’s duration through northern, central and south ; ern Michigan, including a visit to De j troll, where the former went as a del -1 egatc to the supreme court of the i Foresters of America. In referring to his outing Mr. Job said; “Mrs. Job and myself left Rockvale on the Santa Fe train Thursday, Au • gust third, and arrived at Iron Moun tain, Michigan, two days later where we spent some time very pleasantly as the guests of Mrs. Job's parents. Later we visited relatives at Loretto, Vulcan, Norway and Iron River, Mich igan. At these places we found many changes since wo ware there before, especially at Norway, which had been moved about a mile west of its origin al location on account of a cave-in at the Henrietta mine. At present the iron mines are working only about half time because of the depression in the iron and steel trade of the ebuntry in spite of existing condi tions the iron range of northern Mich igan has a very prosperous future in sight. “On August twentieth I left Iron Mountain for Detroit where I attend ed the supreme court of the Foresters of America, which was a grand suc cess in all particulars. On the even- 1 ing of August twenty-second the courts of Detroit held a class Initia tion of two hundred candidates on i>oard the steamer St. Clair. The at- I tendance of officers and represents- : tives was about three hundred and : the affair was a very enjoyable one to all having the good fortune to be present. “The sessions of the supreme court of the order were of extreme interest and much business of import ance to the membership of the or- j ganlzatlon was accomplished. 11. W. I • Mace, of Pennsylvania, was elected su- J preme ranger and T. M. Donnelly, of J Jersey City, New Jersey, was re-elect- | ed supreme secretary. The member ship of the Foresters of America In the United States is now approximate ly 250,000; the state of New York alone being credited with 53,000 of them. The L. O. O. M. also held its an nual convention in Detroit while we Were there. It is to all appearances an up-to-date body of men and they are very enterprising in advertising their order. The attendance of mem bers at the Detroit convention must havo been very large as almost every man on the streets wore a ’ Moose badge."
