KttCarson an a Prospector: Wcusually re fer u> Kit Carson &n a famous hunter, guide an<i ecout But he was lured once by the glit ter of the gulden goddess's wing and went daft searching for a placer mine in the San Lois valley. ThU mysterious place Is one of the legends handed down from the early days of the far west A» the story g«M?s Kit Carson was em ployed In the early lift Ira to carry dispatches from Port l-eavcnworth to San Kranrisco, touch; Jg on the way a number of army post-*. , At the lime almost every Indian tribe In the : west wax on the warpath and a result the j undertaking was a most dangerous one. i I ’pon leaving the plains country Carson j took with him a man named Stew art and a Mexican. The Indians were made aware of their presence In the country and at once gave chace. for daj s it was a running light and if looked Hf> If the dispatches would never i reach their destination. Carson and his com- I pan lons were traveling In what to them was an entirely unknown country and they were so closely pursued that It was found necessary to leave all the known trails. ltiev wire compelled to go much farther south than they Intended, untill at last they j found themselves In the great San Luis val ley. A* the men remembered It later ou it i was a half day's Journey after having crossed the lUo Grande river that the Mexican, who I had gour dow n to the water's edge of the ; stream on which they were ramped, came ! rushing up to Carson and Stewart and showed | them a number of gold nuggets he had wash ed from a single pen of dirt. It was no time j for prospecting, however, .and the men left ! the place and started oafor the Pacific eoast, promising tbemsvlv* that they would sonic day return and from this little stream make ! fortunes for themselves. When weighed tn San Francisco the nuggets were found to l*e worth ; shout $45 After the treaty with the Utes and that tribe ; bad turned over the San Juan coutry to the ; general goverraent.

A peculiar phase of the powers und duties vested In the Couuty Clerk as the Clerk of the Hoard of County Commis sioners floated to the surface this week dur ing the -ittlng of the Hoard. A bill was pre sented . arising out of a e«r tract duly entered | Into by the commissioners and I)r. Win. Cummings as County Physician,for salary - tor tin* month of June, which bill was duly passed ; upon ami allowed by the chairman when the • clerk of the B ard refused to attest the war ; ' rant, claiming thereby the power to make | nugatory any action taken by Hoard of com- i I niixilnner-.

If the Duke wants to know what Is not truth, he should read the Democratic and mugwump editorials on President Harrison’s adiqlqlstratiou.—l’ueblo ’ Merry World. Washington, D. C. July 28. [Special to the Denver Republican.] —The British policy of the last ad ministration is likely to give the government serious trouble. The great fad of the Cleveland people was to be as un-American as possi ble. Their free trade notions were carried so far that they were ot the oDinion that Americans could not build a ship, and the late secretary ; of the navy set about the construe- « tion of a new navy by sending to obtain plans from a British navy es tablishment upon which to build the new cruisers. A large sum of money was spent for this sort of thing—how large Congress was not able to find out. It is said to be against public policy to tell. However, the plans for the battle ship Texas, now under con struction at the Norfolk navy yard, were purchased by the late secretary of the navy in England, and they are radically defective. Those defects which are still radical, notwithstand ing the patching wbioh was done by Secretary Whitney, have now been called to thu attention of Secretary Tracy. The statement is again reiterated by naval expects that the ship will not float if constructed on the pres ent plans. The plans were “modified” and Secretary Whitney ordered the work to proceed, and it now is said that the “modifications” were guess work and that the guess was wrong. Meanwhile the work is at a stand still. The stem which was reported under the Whitney regime to be in place has not even yet been cast and it is said that the requirements of the plans make it several feet too short for the ship. It is even report ed that all that there is of the ship which has been said to be so rapidly progressing are a few plates in posi-; tion. A court of inquiry seems inevitable J and if there has been lying as well j as blundering and a subserviency to j an English fad some courts martial j may follow. Washington, D. C., July 27. [Special to the Denver Republican.} —Assistant Secretary Chandler has handed down an elaborate decision in the case of El wood S. Bradbury vs. Martin F. Dickinson, involving the validity of Dickiuson’s additional j homestead entry for the west half of ; the north-west quarter of section twelve, township twenty-three, range j forty-four, Lamar land district, which effects a portion of the townsite of : Granada. Dickinson’s entry was canceled without a hearing, and under the pe culiar circumstances Assistant Secre tary Chandler disapproves of the same and modifies the decision of j the commissioner of the general land 1 office by ordering a new hearing, at which the present holders and occu pants of the land will be given an I opportunity to defend the validity of said entry. The conditions of said land as to its occupancy for trade and business and for townsite purposes will be in quired into and ascertained at said hearing. If Dickinson’s entry a re sult of this hearing, be finally can celed, then the respective rights of Bradbury and occupants of the land, as lot owners or otherwise, should be considered and determined.

G. Woodford, of Canon City, Secretary of the Ex ecutive Committee, to whom all com munications should be addressed, has 1 made arrangements whereby board 1 and lodging can be obtained at first- 1 class hotels at from SB.OO to SIO.OO per week, and others from $5.50 to 1 SO.OO per week, and in private fami lies at $5.00 per week. State Supt. Dick has assured us that all the railroads have made re duced rates of one and one-fifth fare for round trip. Teachers when buy ing tickets must take a receipt from the agent of whom the buy, which, with a certificate of attendance, will entitle the holder to a return ticket of one-fifth fare. Let no one stay away, fearing that he will not be providad with accom modations. The good people of Canon City have responded nobly to the cull and will throw open the doors ot their homes and welcome the members of the Institute. Text Books.—Teachers are request ed to bring any text books at their command. The Institute will be held at the Canon City public school building. The following Local Committee will be at the public school buildiug on Saturday, August 10, also Monday and Tuesday, 12 and 13, from 10 fc. in., to 4 p. m., to whom any commu nication in regard to board and lodg ing should be addressed.

By order of the Executive Commit tee of the Third Normal Institute Distfict, B. G. Woodford, Seo’y Third Institute Dist. The trifling manner in which many of our exchanges talk of “Gov. Cooper’s duty” would lead a stranger to suppose that Gov. Cooper did not have sense enough to know be was Governor of Colorado. This grows out of the tendency of the country press to dance as their favorite Den ver daily newspaper fiddles. A large uumber of them remind The Graphic of a street organ grinder’s monkey. They seem to have no will and no idea of their own, and if they haye yield it whenever the organist jerks his string. Another class, ignorant of the true motive underlying the policy of the dailies, applaud what ever they say merely to soo their par agraphs reprinted. A little more of the spirit of inquiry and independ ence will do the country pres 9 no harm.—Denver Graphic. ' it is reported that a stock train on the Rock Island, consisting of a cer tain number of cars, and a Santa Pf stock tram of an equal number, will start out of Coldwell, in a few days, at the same identical lime, and make a trial of speed between that point and Kansas City. The friends of both roads are enthusiastic, and are willing to bet their money on tbeir favorites. It is nnderstood that the trainmasters of each road havo given orders to the switchmen to be m red iness to throw switches so that no time will be lost. Both traoks are Vn splendid condition, and trainmen -and cowmen are watching the result with a great deal of interest.

Grand Army Reunion, Milaukee. The Twenty-third National Encamp ment of the Grand Army of the Re public will be held at Milwaukee, Wisconsin August 28 to 31, 1889, inclusive.

A horse thief can deny the fact that he is a horse thief glibly and brazenly, while an honest man wonld blush with shame at being compell ed to make such a denial. A man who will lie and swear to it oan look the woild in the face with a laugh and swear that he tells nothing but the truth, while a man whoso good name and word of honor are as dear to him as life, breaks down under tho crushing odium of false accusation. —Garden City Sentinel.
