Notices of candidate*! for office will be published under this head for *5.00, strictly cash in advance. To the Editor:- -Responding to what would seem the best republican senti ment expressed to ine with much unanim ity, I am constrained to announce that I have consented to permit my name to be submitted to the next county republican convention for the office of county judge of our county. The recent decision of the courts that army oflicers must pay their debts will cause a large decrease in the number of patriots anxious to tight for the flag. The hemp exports from Manilla were largely increased last year not withstanding that the American peo ple have substituted cord wood for hemp to a large extent. Senator Dopew somewhat hotly denies that he is to be again marri ed. Whatever he may think politi cally, he is roatrimentally opposed to even a second terra. —Ex. The agricultural imports into this conutry were larger last year than ever before in the history of the country. There is still a largo home market for our farmers if they will try to look after it. The southern statesmen in the democratic party are now announc ing that they must have the candi date for president in 1904. They are tired of furnishing the votes and then being ignored in the conven tiona. John Dowie, creator of the new religions sect, announced the other evening that he is Elijah, the Pioph et, returned to earth. The next day he was around begging his friends to protect him from his enemies. This is certainly not history repeat ing itself. It is now claimed that the em ployer’s liability bill has been killed because a portion of the senate record was stolen. An anxious search is now being made to see if the fusion employes of the last leg islatnre left auythiug at all in the state house. The Cubans have decided at last it will not do to monkey with Uncle Samuel, and they have added the Platt amendment to their constitu tion without the change of a letter. An soon as a stable government is established the American soldiers will be withdrawn now. Editor Henri Wattorson says he is not afraid of the octopus. If he pos senses the native Kentucky love for the fluid that biteth like a serpent and ntingeth like an adder he has perhaps seen worse things in bis spiritual dreams than a whole herd of octopi —Denver Post. We received last week a copy of the speed program for the liocky Ford fair on September 4,5, and 0 The various purses amount in the aggregate to $2,500, and it is evi dent that the management will spare no expense to make the racing feat lire one of the best on the Colorado circuit. A non partisan Denver jury has decided that it is no lible to say that Senator Patterson is an abettor of all sorts of crimes and election frauds. The state has endured three fusion legislatures and state admin istrations with all their disgrace and frauds for the sole purpose of put ting such a man in the United States Senate, and it is no wonder'that the bnlance of the country think the state has lost its reason. Third Term Talk Ended. The following straightforward and emphatic letter to the Aaaociated Press is President McKinley’s re aponse to the third term tnlk of a few of his foolish friends: BETWEEN NOW "A AND JULY 4th I unless you’ve already purchased, you will be apt to want a new suit.

JOHNSTON LAMAR ... - COLO. ■ “I regret that the suggestion of a third term has been made. I doubt whether I am called upon to give it notice. But there are now questions of the gravest importance before the administration tond the country, and their just consideration should not be prejudiced in the public mind by even the suspicion of the thought of a third term. In view, therefore, of the reiteration of the suggestion of it, I will say now, once for all, ex pressing a long settled couviction, that I not only am not and will not be a candidate fcr a third term, but would not accept a nomination for it if it were tendered me. “My only ambition is to serve through my second term to the ac ceptance of my countrymen, whose confidence I so deeply appreciate, and then with them to do my duty in the ranks of private citizenship. WILLIAM M’KINLEY. “Executive Mansion, Washington, D. C., June 10, 1901.” This leaves no possible room for doubt in the minds of any one, and it is only a few narrow, mean parti sans like the editor of the Rocky Mountain News, that still keep up the pretense of believing that the administration desires a third term. Huving throughout his public career been always ready to change his con victions whenever he can see any per Houal gain in so doing, Senator Fat terson will not believe but what every other public official is just as unre liable as himself. President Mc- Kinley has always been perfectly frank in his entire public career and the above letter can be depended on no matter what happens. Perplexity Libel Suit. The famous libel suit of “Per plexity” Patterson against The Den vor Republican Company, William Stapleton, editor of The Denver Re publican, aud Mr. Hill, president of the company, has ended in a verdict acquitting Hill aud Stapleton, and in a disagreement of the jury in re gard to the corporation. Upon the culpability of the company the jury is reported to have stood 11 to 1 in favor of acquittal. Since the only two defendants that can be puni.-hed physically have been acquitted and since the iutaugible Corporation came within one of being acquitted it may be safely predicted that this prosecution has been cloned. The I trial has occupied the time of the I court for more than six weeks and has cost Arapahoe county uot less than SS,O(M) and its result had just the opposite effect from that expect jed by the prosecuting witnesses. If l “Old Perplexity” was mystyfied when be wrote his now famous let ters we wonder what the state of hi* mind now is. The basis of his com plaint and of the prosection was that the defendants published an ar tide charging him with being a party to the election frauds in Deo ver and that by reason of said article his reputation was injured. That the article was published there is no doubt, that it charges that Patterson was oonnected with the election frauds is equally plain, so the truth of the artiole oonld be the only de fense. To acquit ihe defendants the jury must have believed that the state meats in that editorial were true. This being the case we cannot see wherein the reputation of “Old Per plexity” has been impqpved. There is a verdict of the jury which on his own evidence and that of a few of his friends, states in effect, that Sen ator Patterson’s political acts are not above reproach. If he had never submitted this matter to the courts, and had fought it out in the news paper arena, in time be could have made maoy people believe that he was not responsible for political af fairs in Denver, but now he cannot. This trial has cot changed his polit ical reputation, but we predict it is the cause and the beginning of his political downfall. All he has gain ed is the nick name of “Old Perplex* iiy,” a name which will adhere to him until his dying day, and will make him the laughing stock of all who know how be name by it. The moral of it all is, never take an in jured reputation into court. If you do it may be shown that it has been properly impaired, and if not the air* ingin court will never repair the in jury. Especially is this trne of newspaper men and those who are in public lite. —Greeley Sun. An Interestin g of Antograhs.
