The great flood jn the Mississippi
valley is still raging, and the lower
portions are now the sufferers.
The senate has decided to pnt off
consideration of the tariff bill several
weeks. That body is so dose polit
ically that it will probably take all
summer to pass the bill.
A new batch of Colorado appoint
ments was sent to the seuate by Pres
ident McKinley this week. This was
the signal for another wail of agony
from the Denver Times and Repub
lican.
The Greeks, through poor general
ship, are getting the worst of the
struggle with Turkey. Modern in
ventions have not done away with the
necessity for leaders, that much is
certain.
The roar and howl raised by the
Denver Republican and Times over
the federal appointments in Colorado
is proof positive that President Me
Kinley is making no mistake, but is
putting the. right man in each posi
tion. The good work is still going
on rapidly.
’Uur climate is such that whenever
we do have anything of a storm here
we always wonder what part of the
country to feel pity for, as it i* a sure
thing we get nothing bat the tail end
of the storms of other sections. The
breeze here this week was no excep
tion to the rule.
s -—-Twelve iuches of rain fell the first
of the week at Guthrie, Oklahoma,
in forty-eight hours, causing a terri
ble flood which washed awat a large
portion of the city aud drowuod a
great many people. Rain is all right
sometimes, but there is such a thing
as too much of a good thing.
The Denver Repablicau in a col
umn editorial last week made the
idiotic daim that McKinley should
allow Teller to control the official
patronage of this state. It was the
impression of most people that Teller
supported Bryan, bat perhaps this
was a shrewd political maneuver of
his to insure the election of McKinley
After a long and tedious struggle
the republicans in the Kentucky leg
islature have at last got together and
elected a United States senator. He
is Deboe, the caucus nominee. The
senate is now a tie politically with
Vice-President Hobart to decide.
Rather close! but the republicans
can stand it if the other fellows can.
Irving Howbert has just returned
from a foreign tonr, aud says in an
interview that Coloradoans will have
quit selling mining stocks and go to
mining. This is the situation in a
nutshell. Whenever the stock brok
ers and loan agents of this state qnit
swindling the eastern investors and
commence treating them fairly, they
can get all the money needed to de
velop the resources of the state.
Nearly all the Central and South
American republics have commenced
accumulating gold so as to change
to the gold standard next year. Mex
ico, China and a few negro colonies
are the only free silver countries left.
Evidently the free silverites are
choice in their company. President
Diaz, who has ruled Mexico to long
and faithfully, has announced that
he has but one more ambition: To be
ab’e to put Mexico on a gold stand
ard before he dies.
The great event of the week in this
country has been the dedication of
tomb of Geaera! Grant. No event in
the history of this nation ever drew
such a large crowd or was followed
by such a gram! pageant as this re
moral of the body of General Grant
to its last resting place. His place
in history as one of America’s great
eat heroes is secure, aud the cere mo
nies of to-day show that the years
passing since htn death have only
added to love and esteem in which
his memory is held by his country
men on both sides of the great civil
strife.
