What ie the difference betweeu < the Lamar beet dump if set on tire by a Santa Fe engine aud a Color# < do democratic editor f One in a * burned dump aud the other is a — I well he spoils appearances for an in vector. 1 Editor Bowman of the ltocky Ford Tribune, who was an ardent supporter of Uearst and his theories, | has since the St. Louis convention | beoorne a Parker convert and is now ( supporting the direct opposite of , Mr. Uearst. Ue explains his and Bryan’s attitude by saying great f men do not kiok at trifle#. It was the democratic candidate ' for vioe-president who obtained the I first of the injunctions against labor- < ing men, which hays since been ' known aa government by injunction, and he obtained it from a democrat ic judge appointed by Parker’s special champion, Grover Cleveland. The Colorado democratic editors are not having much to say about gov ernment by injunction these days you will notice. The Colorado democracy is just boiling over with enthusiasm for Parker. In the old demooratic . stronghold of Las Animas oounty a ratification meeting was held and four Mexicans, twelve boys and twenty-five dogs formed a monster torchlight prooeesion and paraded the town of Trinidad. At the meet ing a voter, who had left the repub lican party on the financial issue, read the Parker telegram and then dropped dead with delight. Mayor Speer, the corporation labor leader, wept tears of joy over the nomina tion of Davis for vice-president, aud every democratic editor of the state dreams nightly of the barrel said to be ready to tap if they are good. They are trying so hard to be good that they are afraid to say anything. Wall Street and the Democratic Candidate. In February,l9o4, the Wall Street Journal stated that Judge Alton B. Parker would probably be the selec tion of the “high finance" for the democratic nomination in opposition to President llooeevelt. That pre diction has been verified. The Wall Street Journal now ventures the opinion that Judge Parker will have in the comiug campaign the support partially open but mainly concealed, | of the “interests," in the hope that be will be successful in defeating Mr. Roosevelt. The signs of this are clear and numerous. Judge Parker is sup ported, of course, by many demo crats in Wall street because he is the democratic candidate, apart from other considerations. Bnt he is supported, also, by the “court circular" type of news paper which has no politics but the politics of the dollar, and the “oourt circular" press makes no secret of the reasons why it support# him, these lease us being, in the main, that he will not do what President Roosevelt has done and that he may possibly undo some of President Roosevelt’s work. The essence of “court circular" journalism is in that it seldom acta without a motive and a motive directly connected with the interests of the “high finance." It# support of Judge Parker, therefore, is the best indication that oonld be desired of the attitude of the “high finance" in the matter. Judge Par ker. in this campaign, ie unquestion ably the candidate of the “interests” as against President Roosevelt. It may !>e regarded as strange that the “high finance” should support a democratic candidate, in view of the things that democracy stands for, for instance, with respect to the tar iff. It is only at first sight, how ever, that this seems strauge, for the faot is that no matter who is presi dent there is very little chance for radical actiou by the house or senate for some time to come. The repub lican majority in the seuate will take a considerable time to dostroy, and ; besides, so far as tariff is concerned : the chances are that it will not be come a very active issue in the very ' near future. The currency question is all right, and, with the tariff and currency removed from the sphere of < practical politics, it matters very little to the “high finance” whether the president is a democrat or a re- ' publican, therefore they can safely 1 support Judge Parker as against Mr. Roosevelt because the democratic administration if it secures the reins can accomplish very little for some time to come. It is safe to say that while Wall street will contribute to the cam paign fund of both political parties this year, the largest share of cam- , paign mouey will go to Judge Par ker. Very confident assertions are made by local democratic politicians that there will be any amount of “Standard Oil” money for Judge , Parker. The hatred of the “high finance” for President Roosevelt is nndiminished and, indeed, rather re freshed by the hope of defeating him. He is unforgiven, because be is unrepentant. It is still in Wall street as it was in February, 1903, “anything to beat Roosevelt.” —Wall Street Journal. Colorado Telephone Company To Whom it May Concern: The rapid growth of the telephone business throughout the state has resulted in the construction of lines along most of the public highways. As you undoubtedly know, these lines are for the purpose of giving yourself and your neighbors tele phone service with adjacent com munities, and are of themselves a public necessity and lienefit- The high ways are primarily constructed and maintained for the purpose of facilitating communication, and are rightfully reserved for the general benefit of all the people. The state, recognir.ing this fact, has made all such roads public property and does not permit of any interference by private parties with such highways. While the telephone lines are owned by a corporation, they are used as a public utility, and any in terference with them is a general damage to the community. If any one has a legal right to travel .along a county road they have just as good a right to talk along the same road by means of the telephone wires, and interference with this conversa tion is as much a detriment to the general community as if a bridge was taken out by some private per son, making the road impassible. With this preliminary explanation I wish to call your attention to the status of this company as regards the moving of hay stackers through our lines We have heretofore tak !on the ground that we would place high poles in our lines for the con venience of the farmer desiring to I move his hay stacker along a given - road, or, if at any time the route was changed, wc would furnish la i bor to open our lines temporarily for the same purpose. In some cases we have been put ■ to considerable inconvenience by reason of farmers moving stackers > through our lines without notice, t not only causing us expense, but de f pricing themselves ana their neigh , bors of continuous telephone service. . From this time on we will say to t all owners of hay stackers that we r are perfectly agreeable to furnish, l without charge, the necessary num f | l»er of men to open the line at any t given time, providing a reasonable 1 notice has been given to our nearest i» office. The owner of the hay stack »• er or thresher to furnish means of , transportation for the necessary men »' to and from our office. We feel j that this proposition is perfectly fair to everyone concerned, and that we 4 are clearly acting within our legal rights in this matter. inasmuch as we arc a public utili ty corporation, and depend upon the people for our patronage, we wish to have the good will of the entire community, but we must, like any one else, protect ourselves against injuries aud wrong. In doing so we also protect our subscribers, your self, your neighbors aud the public generally. In case it becomes necessary at any tine to move your stacker through any of our wires, you can always get our agent by telephone, and he will be instructed to assist you aud facilitate your work in ev ery possible way. Should our agent fail to give you prompt attention, you can call the general superintend eut’s office at Denver, by telephone, without charge. We will not per mit our wires to bo torn down with out notice, and in future cases of this sort will be compelled to take legal steps to protect our subscribers. The Colorado Telephone Co. E. M.
