TEST CASE PROBABLE ON HIGHWAY FUNDS Denver, Sept 11.— What is likely to prove a test case as to the validity of house bill No. 200, which involves the apportionment of general funds for Improving and building state roads, and which was passed by the last legislature in extra session, grows out of the refusal on Wednes day of Btate Auditor M. A. L*ddy to honor a voucher drawn against the Internal Improvement fund for s6,oo<> The money wae to be used In building the Denver-Omaha highway. Auditor Leddy based hia action on the alleg ed invalidity of house bill No. 200 in that the record of its passage was omitted from the senate Journal.

H. Low, of Denver, prominent in 1 that city as a chemist, was put ou the witness stand by the defendant in the river clarification cane at noon on Thursday and the submission of his testimony has occupied the atten tion of the court ever since. Mr. Low has been in the employ of the defend ant for some, time, and, in that rela tion, has made no fewer than seven analyzations of water taken from the Arkansas river at various points be tween Granite and Pueblo and is thor oughly familiar with the properties It holds in solution and with the amount and character of the silt car ried by It at the different seasons of the year. Mr. Low this afternoon made —in the presence of the court—flltra tions of a number of samples of water taken from half a dozen points along the river in an effort to establish one of the contentions of the attorneys for the defense. Mr. Low gave it as his opinion, baced .upon deductions reached from his investigations, that fifteen times as much mud and silt was washed into the river between Canon City and Pueblo as there was between Granite and Canon City. The geology of the country west of here, a m well as its sparse.y settled condi tion, minimizes the quantity of min eral and vegetable matter washed In to the river, while the sandy soil and- Irrigation methods employed between here and Pueblo vastly augments the sources and extent of the pollution. From present Indications It will be Thursday or Friday of next week be fore the case is finally closed.

While there is 6ome disappointment that Fremont county exhibitors in the horticultural department at the state fair at Pueblo last week did not get the sweepstakes prize for the best collection made by any countiy in the state they have abundant reason to be satisfied with the blue ribbons they secured in the box and plate displays. In addition to more than two hund red awards of the latter class, a number largely in excess of the prises given to any other county, there was given to Fremont county third place for the largest and best collection of fruit of all varieties: first place place In district number three; first for the largest and best collection of pears; first, second and third tor the best collection of native grapes: first and second for its ex hibit of boxed fall apples; second and third for boxed winter apples; sec ond tor the largest and best display of peaches and nectarines and sec ond and third In the fruit growers exhibit.

Was it a s'uccess? 1b the Fair worth while? Is it worth all it costß? As to the first query it was a de cided success. Everybody could see that. It was excellently managed and the program on the track was the best ever. The program was fully as good as any that has ever been pulled off in any fair ground in the state, not even excepting the state fair at Pueblo. The exhibits were good in every department, especially of fruits of the tree and soil. In no single coun ty in the state can a better display of fruits and apples especially oe found. Each year the display of fruits is a marvel to our own citi zens and an ehcouragement for bet ter efforts. Is the Fair worth while? We think It is. It is worth while to show our people what we can do by bringing together the best from many farms. Such an exhibition of fruits and vegetables has a great influence in building up our re sources and encouraging other peo ple to plant other varieties of fruits and vegetables. It helps to build up diversified crops. Beside this we have thousands of people here from other parts of the state and from other states who find out more in a day of our resources than they could learn otherwise in a year. And then the general ef fect of a holiday season for our own people is of value. It’s a good thing to jar loose from business for a day or two now and then and it’s a good thing to provide the entertain ment at home. Is it worth what it costs? We think so. A Fair costs some money. No fair we know anything about is entirely self-sustaining. Ours has required some subscrip tions on the street from time to time. Last year no subscriptions were taken. This year it was necessary. Last year the loss was taken care served currants; second preserved pears; first preserved plums; third preserved crabapples. Mrs. F. W. Keeling won second canned peaches; second canned ap ples; second canned rhubarb; second rhubarb jelly: second gooseberry jel ly; second raspberry jelly; first ap ple jelly; third currant jelly; third plum butter; third preserved black berries; third preserved quinces; third preserved apples; third pre served strawberries; third preserv ed tomatoes, third pickled pears; first best cider vinegar. Miss May F Snow won third can ned peaches: first canned apples; first canned strawberries; second canned cherries; second canned gooseberries; second beaus: first preserved cherries: second preserve 1 blackberries; third caramel cake; third marshmallow cake: third * sponge cake: second fig cake; fl“°t preserved gooseberrles. Mrs. X. A. Tatum won third cab ined tomatoes: third canned rhubarb: second best cider vinegar; third white loaf cake. Mrs. Frank Duffey won third yeast I bread. Mrs. B. G. Woodford won third salt J rising bread. "YOUNG PORTO RICO” CAPTURED SWEEPSTAKES J. T. Corrln, of thl* city, entered i his handsome, four-year-old standard bred stallion, "Young Porto Rico," at the state fair at Pueblo last week | and captured all of the most covet ed prlsea In the class In which he was shown. He took Brat money In i competition with horaee of hta class , and tbo eweepetakes ribbon In the standard bred ring; a dlatlnctlon of • which Mr. Cor tin takes a justifiable : pride. Two half brathers of "Torna* of by a surplus left over from the year before. This year the treasury was depleted and it was necessary to raise a little money on the street. When all the expenses and premiums are paid it will be found that all the receipts and most of the subscrip tions will be eaten up But it’s worth all it costs. In the first place every dollar put into the Fair goes directly back into the pockets of our own citizens. Not a dollar is taken out of town. The races cost about $2,500 but when you connt up all the horses and horse men who are here you can easily count up that they leave more mon ey here than the winners take away. And all the premiums are paid to people in the county. Something like $5,000 are paid out in purses, prem iums and expenses and every dollar goes back into the local business channels. Besides this the people who come in from outside spend about $5,000 or $6,000 in the town. In a commercial way it is a paying proposition for }tjhe county. Here Is another point you may not have thought of. Before our Fair was put on a successful basis heavy spe cial trains were ran out each year to Rocky Ford, Pueblo and Denver fairs. On those excursions many thousands of dollars were taken out of town. Now only a few j>eople away from town to attend fairs. All that money is kept at home. That feature alone justifies all the sub scriptions that are raised on Main street Every way jam figure it the Fsir is a success sad worth all the mon ey it costs every one concerned. This community owes a debt of gratitude to Mr.. W. B. Rowland who baa so successfully conducted the secretary's office for several yearn He has Hide a business of the Fair to the detriment of his private business and he has developed into an excellent fair man.

TO SHOW VISITOR FINEST ROADS IN STATE Mr. and Mra M. J. Mitton, who reside in eastern Nebraska, forty or fifty miles from Lincoln, arrived here a day or two ago for a visit with their nephew, Chas. L. Mitton. and wife. They made the trip as far as Boulder In tbeir automobile where they were told that they would have to traverse wide sections of sandy country to get to Canon City and they left their car there and came on here by train. When Informed af ter his arrival here that nowhere in the state are the roadq In better con dition than between Denver and this city Mr. Mitton was much disappoint ed that he left his machine in Bould er. His entertainers are determined t • show him that the public highways about Canon City are the finest in the west and will take him to the top of the Royal Gorge and over the : Skyline drive in proof of that fact Miss Feme Adams, of Delhart. Tex as. who hu been spending the sum mer in Canon visiting friends ano acquaintances, left today for Pueblo, where she will spend i wetk with her aunt. Mrs. Bert Steele, and attend the ! fair. Miss Adams will return Monday | and intends to remain In the city un til the latter part of December, when ' the will retain to her home.
