Postoffice Building, Lamar, Colo. Rather Severe. Mr. Bryan's asaertion that demo crat should die for their democracy is a tritle eevore; but Home of them might properly nerve a term iu jail for it. — Kaunas City Journal. A Few Essentials. The democratic managers have made such good progress iu the last year that nothing now remains to bo done but to find a candidate, an is sue, some harmony and and a few million more voters. —Chicago Hoc ord Herald Ought to Have Been. Colorado’s so called democratic convention indorsed the Kansas City platform, blamed the dynamite mnr dors at Cripple Creek on the repnb licau legislature for failure to pavs an eight hour law and commended Biyan as the leader of the demo cratic party. No arrests. —Chicago Chronicle. Bitter Memories Linger. Never did effect follow more swift ly, surely and ruinously than did the panic of 1893 follow the demo ciatic tariff tinkering. Under the McKinley tariff law of 1890 the country had prospered generally aud solidly; but Mr. Cleveland gnd party that elected him were not pleased with such a condition. They want ed to do some tinkering and they did it with such success, from their own point of view, that the business of the country was paralyzed, the wheels of industry made idle and millions of wage workers deprived of employment. That time of panic, of stress and suffering has not been forgotten. Bitter memories of it still linger in the minds of the Amer ican people, who knew at the time as they know today that the bond issues of 1894 1890, of which Mr. Cleveland appears to be so proud, were only an attempt to repair some of the damage wrought by the dem ocratic “ripping up” of the protect ive tariff.—Providence “News.” The Republican Platform. From all indications the platform to be adopted by the republican con Vrtntion at Chicago this week will be short and very much to the point. All that will be necessary is a brief resume of the achievements of the MoKinley and Roosevelt administra tions, combined with the declare tion that the policy oj those admin istrntions will bo rigidly adhered to by tlio republican occupant of the persidential chair for the coming term. That is all the American people want. It is all that will be neces sary to cause the voters of the Unit ed States to cast an overwhelming vote of confidence in Mr. Roosevelt next November. However, it is qnite possible that even that would not be necessary under tbe circumstances. Should Mr. Roosevelt go before the people with no other plutforin thau his own personality he would still have tbe American people with him. They know him. They have tried him aud know that he will maintain the dignity of the nation at home and abroad; that be will enforce honesty in pnblic service, conduct tbe affairs of the government on a business basis, advance theconntiy’s interests commercially, and, in short, main tain the high ideals of American cit izeuship in every official act. With such a candidate, one that appeals to the best iu every citizen’s nature, there is little doubt of the result at the polls. —Pueblo Chief tain. Law Above Everything:. A dastardly aud appalling crime was committed early last Monday morning at the Floreuce & Cripple Creek railroad depot at Cripple Creek. Thirteen iunocent men lost their lives by this awful crime. They were guilty of nothing more and nothing less than having come to Cripple Creek to do work and to make an honest living. For this they were sent into eternity without shrift, without mercy, and withont warning by cowardly assassins and treacherous murderers. People nat urally will connect this bloody deed with members of the Western Feder ation of Miners who have been lighting non union men and have threatened to take human life, when ever aud wherever it was necessary to keep non union men from Colora do mining camps. Another dispatch states that iu a riot at Victor Mon day night a dozen men were killed or wounded. This riot was brought about by union miners and was di rected against men who did not be OPS*ICXAXa STE'arSPX.PEB or PEOTSTEEC CCTTITTT LAMAR. PROWERS COUNTY. COLORADO, WEDNESDAY. JUNE 22. 1904. long to the union, but who had come to Victor to exercise their rights as free American citizens. That riot was also directed against the operators and mine owners as well as against the constituted authori ties. Decent, law abiding and pa triotic people not only in Colorado mining oamps but throughout the country will certainly uphold and commend Governor Peabody in de daring martial law and iu adopting the most strenuous and iudeed, if noed be, despotic measures and to use the military force of the state to put down such criminals and rioters in the severest and harshest inunnor. This must be done to sustain the dignity and power of the state, to uphold the supremacy of the law, as well as to protect the property ami lives of the innocent citizens and laboring men. The miscreants in Colorado if disaster overtakes them and if they are severely punished, will have no one to blame but them selves. They should and must be taught that the law is superior and that every man has the right to work when, where, how, for whom and at such wages as he pleases, without interference and in security.—Ex. Colorado and Organized Labor. A desperate effort is being made by Senator Patterson and other po litical demagogues to create the im pression that the state authorities, and a large portion of the people of Colorado, are bent upon exterminat iug labor unions in tbis state. This effort to deceive the labor union people and to stir up bitter uess aud hatred is being made solely in the interests of the socialist and democratic parties. The people of Colorado and the Governor of Colorado believe in or ganized labor but they do not be lieve that they are bound to approve of the crimes of an organized baud of thugs aud murderers simply be cause tbe latter parade under the banner of organized labor and try to hide their hideous crimes behind the respectability which its mantle af fords. Organized labor was getting along nicely in this state when tbe West ern Federation of Miners made its appearance. Then there was not a Citizens Alliance organization in Colorado, and the radical anti-anion - ist and the fire eating dynamiting element of organized labor were eel dom heard from. But since that time the Western Federation of Miners bus become a socialistic political organization which is opposed to the present form of American government, aud which finally turned loose its dynamiters to bring disgrace upon the state and upon unionism. This unruly, loosely organized and badly led organization ordered a sympathetic strike in Cripple Creek which was against the judgment of every conservative labor union mau in the state. When they found they coaid not win, instead of calling off tbe strike they set their dynamiters at work. By their unwise course in calling and conducting this strike they have done organized labor a serious and unmerited injury. The people of Colorado have no fight with organized labor but they are bitterly opposed to the Western Federation of Miners which has left the same long trail of blood in this state that it left in the states to the north of Colorrdo. —C olor ad o Springs Telegraph. Dave and the Law at Outs. Dashing, dauntless Dave Day, the Daredevil of Durango, is in durance vile. He was fined S3OO for con tempt of court yesterday, and swears by all the imps in purgatory that the court house will rot before he pays three cents of it. Dave be lieves in the Constitution, the Decla ration of Independence and the rights of man, and the court house may as well begiu rotting at once. — Ex. Tarred With the Same Stick. The Chicago Chronicle, which re cently found proof of the barbarism, venalty and general unfitness for statehood of Arizona in its democrat ic conv6ntion instructing for Hearst, now has a chance to rollect on the high degree of probity and sense of rectitude which led the democracy of Illinois to do tbe same thing. The West would like to hear what the Chronicle thinks about it. —Ex. W. W. Cooper, at The Fret National Bank, represents The Park Region Mu tual Insurance Association of Glen wood, Minnesota.
