LAMAR. • • COLORADO. JSOirfE people prefer to lend money to a painted telograph pole rather than to a growing tree becauso tho form<y looks so much nicer. Many a man who would disdain any thing; like weakness in personal adorn ment will wear a watch charm from one veir’a end to the next when there is no possible excuse for it beyond some legend of which he alone is the pnsaessor. A vetf.kan' who died at Plainfield, N. J., the other day requested thal the bugle with which he had led his comrades to victory be buried in hit coffin with him. When G -briel sounds his trumpet he will bo able to blow a return blast. Great minds are often found to be running in similar channels. A groat London physician states in tho last number of an English magazine th it mankind oat more than is good for them, and Mr. Gould has just remarked that mankind wear moro clothes than are good for them. Minister Phelps says English is the language in diplomatic circles in Berlin. Tho kaiser. Chancellor Cap rivi and all the high officials, as well ns society people, speak English, and show such preference for it that it would bo ungracious to insist upon German. One reason of this is the national disllkoto the French language and the partiality of literary people for English and American books. It is estimated that fully nine tenths of the business letters of the country are now written on the type-writer. Schools for stenography and type writing are now to be found in every city, and they are well patrouized. The man of large business now sits down for an hour and by dictation to his stenographer, rushes through in an hour the amount of correspondence that formally occupiod his time for belf a day. People have-been wont to regard a continuous line of railroad connecting North and South Americ i as a visiou ary scheme, and at present an impos sible one, though it might be accom plished in some succeeding century. But a perusal of the reports shows that a large portion of the line is already in existence. Thore are a great many links already forged and the task of connecting them in one continuous chain is by no moans so tremendous as to appall modern engineers. Two eight-year-old boys aro in cus tody in JSt- Paul for attempting to “crack” a safo. Stealing a sledge from a blacksmith shop they entered an office and broke off the handle and combination of tho safo. Here they were foiled, as they could not devise means for going further. A short time ago one of the boys took part in a theatrical representation in which there was a safe robbery scene. It is thought that this suggested the action in real life, for which the lads will probably go to tho reform school. There never yet was a grand pro cession that wa3 not accompanied, or rather, in groat measure inndd up of followers and onlookers. So in this life parade of ourg. with its ever vary ing pageant and brilliant display, there are comparatively few who Carry banners, who disport the epau lette. and the gold lace. And some times, wo who help swell tho rank* of those who watch and wait, grow dis couraged, almost thinking that life is & failure because it holds no gala-day for us. nothing but sober tints and tuiet dutios. Nearly every express agent in the Country, per force of circumstances, has become a lottery agent. In large towns whenever the plunderers feel the receipts will warrant them In doing It, Ihey appoint an outside agent whose Suties are to recelvo their contraband hand bills and circulars by express anu «eo to it that they are properly distrib ated. In this manner they aro still able to fleece millions from the poor and the ignorant. The anti-lottery law teeds a quasi codicil tacked on to it, >r another law to go with it as a com panion piece. Notiiino seems plainer than that tho west will do its own manufacturing n a few years. For a long time the Sew England and Middle States pre lumed that they would continue to produce more of the manufactured foods Jfor the entire country. They tad the water power, which was chiefly iepended on for running machinery. Bteam power, however, is fast super ledicg water power for driving all kinds of machinery, and steam can be fenerated in the west much cheaper than -in tho east. Tho east has no tatural gas and no soft coal, while the west has an abundance of both of them. tVood was once used in tho east for fenerating steam, but it has now be lomo too scarce and costly. There should boa new beatitude, and it should read, “Blessed is the man who hath the courage of his con victions.” It should apply to poor, long-suffering women ns well. We have plenty of tho sort of courage that will icad a man to step in front of a ru.i - sway horse to check the flight of tho maddonod animal, or dash into a burn ing house, or throw himself off a dock lo rescue a perishing wretch, but there is a dirth of tho kind of bravery that will enablo either man or woman to face a laugh in defense-of a principle >r succor a losing cause despite a ineer. How tho best of us will sneak and .trail our banner in the dust when the hot shot of ridioule confronts « from tho enemy’s camp or when tom* merry seminal challenges us tfMh th* opprobrious epithet, “or*ole." STATE NEWS. The National Humane Society will meet in Denver next year. Dr. Lowrey has been installed as pastor of tho «Jr*resbyteriau church at ( Boulder. Tho ilerald~Democrat has compiled j figures that show Leadvillc’s ore output , for October to have been 2,004 toua per , day. i John Seiblin<j, a Swede who is erc- i ployed at tho Pueblo smelter, fell into a . pot of molten slug the other day and was ' terribly burned. General George West has leased the Golden TYanscrlpt to John F. Ash, late of tho Do Bcquo Era. Ills lease ex- tends for cue year. A girl at Fort Collins committed suicide by taking poison Friday. She had been in love with a man who had dis- , carded her and left town. A much needed organization, a law an order league, has been organized in Denver to aid the authorities in enforcing the laws pertaining to saloons and public morals generally. J. W. Bell, colored, who wont to Leadrille several weeks ago and collected a lot of money fraudulentlj\ claiming that ' be belonged to the Missionary Treasure, was fouud guilty' of obtaining money under false pretenses, ar.d has beeu sentenced to four mouths in the county jail. Noverto Griego, who murdered W . L'. Underwood of Trinidad, was executed in the penitentiary at Canon City on the Bth. This is the first execution under the new law, requiring capital punishment to be carried out at the penitentiary in pri vate. The Denver News says that tho next State legislature will be composed of forty-five Republicans aud thirty Demo crats, of which fifteen Republicans and eleven Democrats will compose tho Sen ate, and thirty Republicans ana uiueteon Democrats will form the house. •. The election returns from Arapahoe County have been canvassed aud show the election of Steck. Republican, and Mc- Kinley, Democrat, to the State senate. Six Democrats and two Republicans are elected to the house. Two others are in doubt yet on account of the thoft of a ballot box. At the close of tho election in Den ver last Tuesday the ballot box was stolen from the eighteenth precinct while the judges were busy' eating quail on toast The thief inadvertently dropped the box on tho sidewalk not far away and it broke, scattering the ballots. All but five of them were recovered. The general assembly of the Knight.- of Labor convened in Denver on Tuesday at 2:30 o’clock in the afternoon. The as sembly was attended by delegates from ail sections of the United States aud Canada, with a few delegates from Great Britain and Europe. Thero was also an atten dance of 300 to 500 visiting rnemb rs. Nearly all are accompanied by their wives. Judge Downer, of Fort Collins, has granted a change of venuo in the Milling ton case to Arapahoe County, and it will be tried iu Denver. The decision gave evident satisfaction to the defense, es pecially to the prisoners. Frank Milling ton is looking pale from his long and close confinement, but appeared cbeerful. Mrs. Millington and “Dillie” heartily congratu lated each other upon the result cf the ap plication for a change of venue. Off of three-fourths of an acre of grouud close to town was dug 13,0C0 pounds of potatoes. This is by no means a phenomenal yield for this country, but it should cause our farmers to turn their attention to this heretofore neglected crop. With potatoes fetching 2, ; j cents per pound in the spring, and few to bo ob tained at that, the profits are lar ahead of those to be obtained by tho raising ol grain. Again, while it is a little more trouble as regards the gathering, in tUe matter of planting the work is far less, thus equalizing the work of raising the crop while giving far larger returns. Our progressive farmers will not fail to take advantage of these facts. — Meeker Herald Tho annual report of the commis sioner of pensions, which has just been printed, shows that there are 2,7-15 pen sioners in Colorado.

Spickcrmau, a milo and a half southeast of Morrison, on the southern slope of tho Turkey Creek valley, has nearly approached the oil-bearing strata, if there is any there. Tho bore has now attained a depth of 1,900 feet, commencing with a fourteen-inch diameter pipe, now narrowed to five inches. The work has been delayed by the obstinate charactor of the formations, which are inclined instead of horizontal and which wear the rope. The tools are now in formations supposed to be just above oil-bearing, strata and there is everr evidence that the hopes and enterprise of the projectors will be shortly realized. Mr. Blood has had thirty-ono years’ experience in the oil regions of Pennsylvania and believes that there were no better indications ever seen than those found in the Turkey Creek valley. The derrick used is seventy-two feet high with a foundation twenty feet square. The motive power is a thirty horse-power en gine. The company has 7,000 acres of land leased, with an option on 2,000. A dispatch from Kansas City says that twenty six Italians and their families hungry and penniless, passed through the Union depot direct from their native soil, on their way to Pueblo, Colorado, where they expect to get work in the mines. The leader of the party, who spoke broken English, said that he expected to find em ployment for thousands of his countrymen in the Colorado mines. He denied that he was hired to import laborers, but from his conversation it was evident that an un derstandiug existed between* himself and several mine owners that employment j would be furnished lo all Italians that I would come over, f ANOTHER REVOLUTION. Honduras Becomes the Scene of a Revolt. La. Libert ad, Nov. 11.—The revo ytion which has been expected to r months jud which bus been gaining headway linee the conclusion' of tho war between Salvador and Guatemala, has broken out in Honduras. Tegucigalpa is in u state of »ioge. Telegraph communication direct with the capital bus beeu interrupted and it is believed that the wires have boon cut, but this Is not positively known. Several j dispatches havo been received by the Sal vadoran government in regard to the af fair. One is to tho effect that on Friday last a part of tho garrison of Tegucigalpa re volted, and under the leadership of Gen eral Longiuo Sanchez, took possession af ter hal'd lighting of tho capitol building ami arsenal. Since then streot skirmishing has been of daily occurrence and Sanchez and his forces now havo President Bogran sur rounded in one of the wards of the city, and it is believed he will bo forced to sur render unless other garrisons arrive at the scene of the rovolt within two or three days. During the night Bogran and his forces who were surrounded in one of tho wards of Tegucigalpa, withdrew from the capital. They fought through ihe lines, aud ex actly where they havo taken up their headquarters has not been ascertained- They aro being pursued by soldiers sent after thorn by General Longinos Sanchez, who is now in comoleto possession of the capital and appears to be master of tho situation. It is understood Sauchez will at once declare a do facto government and send representatives to Salvador, Co9ta Kica, Nicaragua, and possibly to Mexico and tho Uuited States. Sanchez, on tho death of Cello Arias, a man of remarkable intelligence and influ ence, became the central and leading en. cuiy of liograu, and it appears that his pronuuciamento became effective, though Bogran. expecting President Borrillasof Guatemala to send him trooD3, put down the revolt. Under the most favorable circumstances Honduras cannot, when all its people are of the same mind, place over la,ooo armed men in the Held, aud in the present troubles more than 10,000 effective soldiers, including those enlisted on both sides, cannot bo raised. A private cipher dispatch over tho fed eral lines from Guatemala brings infor mation that Barrillas has sent 1,000 sol diers from the frontier to aid Bogran in recapturing Tegucigalpa aud restoring order in Honduras. The greatest excitement prevails in the Guatemalan capital and another large war is predicted. Conservative people censure the act of sending troops to Honduras and predicta general war in Central Amcricu. The peace treaty which was to have been arranged and signed between Guatemala aad San Salvador in October remains un settled business as yet, owing to the fact that Barrillas can give no satisfactory ex planation as to what became of the Sal vadoran prisoners in tho recent war. The Spanish aud American ministers, owing to the this question, are not cn the best of terms, and relations between Salvador aud Guatemala are strained. Railway Collision in England. London, Nov. 11 —A collision oc curred to-day on the Great Western rail way at Norton, Fitzwarrcn station, near Taunton, between a freight und special train from Plymouth, convening passen gers from the steamer Nor ham Cost'.e, just arrived at Plymouth from the Cape of Good Hope. Ten were killed and eight injured. The collision was caused by the negli genco of a signal man. The freight train had been switebod to an up line to allow the down night mail train to pass which had passed safely. The night was very dark and the signal man forgot the freight on the up track and an upbound special train which consisted of four carriages containing fifty passengers, rushed past at a rate of fifty miles an hour and dashed into the freight. The first car of the spec ial was demolished. The wreck took fire and six passengers were burned to death. The signal man has been charged with manslaughter and remanded. He is an old man and has been long in tnc company's service. Several months ago he was kuocked down by a pilot engine and had his head injured. Eviction of One Hundred Irish Tenants. Dublin, Nov. 11.—The threatened evictions on tho Olpbert estate were be gun at Ardsburg this morning. A fierce storm has raged all night and the work of eviction was begun under a cloudy sky, the gloomy weather adding to the wretch edness of tho scone. It was thought some of the tenants might resist the evictors, aud a force of heavily armed policemen was on the ground to meet such an emer gency. Sixteen families, comprising 100 persons, were ejected frem their homes. During a squabble, Mr. O'Neill,member of Parliament, put a chaik mark on a po liceman's arm, as u mark of identification. He warned the others that ho would simi larly mark all who should be guilty of mis] behavior, this being the only way to iden tify the men as long as the authorities de clined to make them wear badges. A number of English visitors, including several ladies, witnessed the evictions.and afterwards held an indignation meeting,at which tho action of the estate was roundly denounced. The Bishop of Ilaphahoe ar rived at Ardsbury in tho afternoon for the purpose of assisting the evicted families. Swindling School Children. Birmingham, Ala, Nov. 12.—A stranger, giving his name as William Fountain, accompanied by a young woman whom he introduced as his wife, visited all the public schools in the city yesterday and announced that he would give a show at El well’s Hotel, at 4 o'clock. A present was to be given to every child who at tended. Twelve hundred paid ten cents admis sion, but in the hall they found no show and no presents. Fountain told thorn to pass out tho back way and they would re ccivo their presents there, but they re fused. Then he went into a dark corner, lighted a match and shouted “•fire.” Tnis caused a panic, and many children were trampled under foot and Injured, some of. them fatally. Policemen sent to arrest tho swindlers, found them locked in a room. Tho door was broken down and Fountain and the I woman taken to prison. They refuse to make any statement or give any account 1 of themselves. State Teachers' Association.

For the past two years tho Archaeo logical Institute of America has been con templating tho purchase of the land in Greece upon which the little village of Kustri is built. The ruins of Delphi are here, and to inako extensive explorations among them would be the object of the purchase. The Greek government has given the Institute the first opportunity of securing the land. At the annual meeting of the New York Society of Archaeological Research. Wiiliam R. Ware, professor of architecture of mines, announced that the Boston chapter had subscribed £>4,000, Chicago chapter, fIO.OJJ, and the New York chapter, sl*J’ooo'. It is thought the remainder of the $-O.(KK), the price of the land, will not be hard to raise. The In stitute has been given until the ISth of the month to close tho bargain. The Greek government has many offer* for the land. Frozen to Death in a Packing House. Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 11.—Geo. Youngman, engineer of tho artificial ice plant at Armour's packing house, met with a peculiar accident to-day that will prob ably cost him his life. He hod gono into the freezing room to repair one of tho pipes through which tho evaporating fluid was led from tho lank aud the freezing room. In attempting to repair the pipe he broke it iu such a manner as to permit a large amount of the evaporating fluid to escape, which suddenly lowered tho tem perature away below zero. Beforo ho knew it tho engineer was overcome by a drowsy numbness. When found he was frozen stiff and almost dead. Tho physi cians say he cannot live. A New Style of Propeller. An ingenious mechanic of Bridge port, Connecticut, James Hamilton, has finished a fine working model of an entire ly new method of the adjustment of pro pellers for ocean steamships. It consists of three great horizontal shafts lying parallel to each other and extending out ward from the stern of tho vessel. To each shaft a three blade propeller is at tached, the central or middle ono being in area twice that of the other propellers. Within the vessel the three shafts are joined transversely with strong rods and have clamps attached, so that one or ail can be instantly dctnobei} if necessary. A double expansion engine of great power is to run each shaft. The in ventor claims his system will give more uniform motion, aud with the same horse power exerted by the engines will give far greater results. In othor words,if 10.000 horse power exerted on the two propellers gives the vessel a speed of twenty miles an hour the same power exerted on three propellers will give twenty-five miles an hour. Another important point with the invention is tho many resources it pos sesses in case of a breakdown. When at sea the oreaking of a shaft or part of an engine is often a serious matter. In this device there are six combinations which can bo made to run the ship. This muv bo better understood by saying that the the three engines and tho three shafts must each bo broken or disabled to put the ship in a helpless condition. If one or even twd shafts should break, the com bined horsepower of ihe three engines can be thrown upon or applied to tho remain ing shaft and the B|>ccd be not greatly diminished. Should ono or two engines break down the remaining engine can fstlil run on two or three propeller# BY TELEGRAPH. Tlio Wyoming State legislature eonvenod on November 1-th.
