VOLIHB XX. County Notes. TFroat the Holly Chieftain I The town board is putting in sev eral hundred trees this year aloug the streets of Holly. They have ligured the cost down so that it is but a small item, but the benefits to be derived will be greater than can be figured in money if they were mere expensive than they are. • • . Rails and ties for the construction of the Holly & Swink railway are coming in so fast that the company has secured the services of John E Murphy as foreman of an unloading gang to clear the cars and keep the material in a systematic shape, so that they will know exactly what they have and what they most secure when the task of laying track begins. Twenty-six cars of ties and three of rails arrived last Friday. This will give our readers some idea of the magnitude of the undertaking! These supplies have been coming in for over a month, but this is tLe largest shipment arriving in any one day. * * * TFrom tho Granada Timas. I The Colorado Telephone office was moved Saturday from the New Bruns wick hotel office to the Gregory building opposite the McCue Lum ber company’s office. The new quar ters are neat and commodious and are a vast improvement over the for mer location. • . • The partition has been removed which separated the former quarters of the telephone office from that of the New Brunswick hotel, aud the whole space will be used by that popular hostelry. Thia makes a spacious and comfortable office aud lobby. • • • The union meeting of the Royal Neighbors and Modern Woodmen of America, Saturday evening, was suc cessful in every respect. A full and interesting literary program was rendered, after which refreshments were served, also pickles. Everyone left feeling that the evening had been well aud profitably spent and grateful to the hospitable members of the two orders for providing such an enjoyable entertainment. New Council.

Whether ’twould be better to have a park that would be a cred it to La Junta and a thing of beauty and a joy forever, or just a bare plot of ground that will be fitly and prop erly designated as La Junta’s back yard—that is the question, simply that and nothing more. Which shall it be? It is for tho citizens of La Junta to decide, and we are con fident that if the matter is properly placed before them it will be decid ed right. The landscape gardener, engaged by the park commission, was in town this week. He looked over the site and was decidedly im pressed with its pnssibilities. It can be made a beauty spot that will be a credit to La Junta and joy un alloyed for her citizens for all time to come. To carry out the plans of the landscape gardner, however, will c >st money, and aye, there’s the rub. There are so many people in La Junta who live and breathe solely for filthy lucre, that it will probably be a bard proposition to induce them to loosen up. The plans of the landscape gardner provide for a pavilion in the park, a series of lakelets, the planting of a SI,OOO worth of trees aud shrubbery, and the parking and boulevardiug of Colorado avenue, the natural gate way to the park, for several blocks north of the entrance. It will re quire fifteen mouths to carry out the scehme of the landscape gardner and he estimates the cost at not over $5,000. This amount can be raised by bonding the town for that amount providing the taxpayers approve of the project, and the additional tax would be iufiDitessimal. It is a good thing. Think it over, and lastly but uot leastly, loosen up and ex perience a new sensation in life.— La Junta Tribune. Sanford Dodge supported by a company of unusual merit, will produce Shakespeare's immortal tragedy, Julius Caesar, at the opera house on Monday 16th. This famous play has never before been acted outside of the larger cit ies, bnt this season, owing to numer ous requests. Mr. Dodge is present ing this production, and as evidence of this fact crowded houses have been the rule in every city in which Mr. Dodge has appeared.

New and special scenery has been painted by the well known artist, Henry Gerber, and the costumes accurate aud beau tiful in the extreme. No lover of the higher form of the drama can af ford to miss the opportunity of ser iug this great tragedy, as it will be the dramatic and intellectual treat of the season Judge Lewis’ Advancement. la choosing a successor to Judge llallett President Roosevelt was hot iiHUioered by a scarcity of eligibles; ho bad before him a list of nearly a dozen of the ablest attorneys and jurists in the state —a fact which rather adds to the distinction of the appointment. And it is certain that (he President could uot have made a selection more gratifying to the peo ple and the bar of Colorado, aud es pecially of Colorado Springs. The appointment of Judge Lewis to the Federal bench is the third aud most notable step in a professional advancement remarkable not only for its rapidity but for the fact that it has been won on sheer merit. Just three years ago Mr. Lewis, then oue of the foremost attorneys of the El Paso County bar, was appointed by Governor Peabody to the newly created Judgeship in the Fourth Judicial District. The following November be was elected to a full term in that position, which will not expire until January, 1907, aud there is not the slightest doubt that, if he had not received the appointment to the Federal beoch, be would be re uomiuated next fall without opposi tion and re elected by a large ma jority. Judge Lewis’ record during the three years he has been on the state bench is a source of pride to the people aud the bar of this district, as it may well be to him. Possess ing a temperament essentially ju dicial, he has been firm ami impar tial, while his native ability and pro fessional attainments have brought new credit to the local hench. Now, while still in the prime of life, he ! enters upon the very important duties of an exalted position, one of the highest, short of tho United States Supreme Court, to which a jurist may aspire, aud he brings to them the ripe expeiience and dis- • cretiou of twenty two years of active practice and conscientious study. It is not too much to predict that dur ing the coming years Judge Lewis will rank with the foremost mem bers of the federal bench, for cer tainly few men have taken up this work better equipped to reach the top- —Colorado Springs Gazette.
