VOLUME XXIV. ROAD WILL SURELY DISCOVER AN OUTLET FOR SYSTEM WEST OF DENVER BEFORE YEAR ENDS. Purchase of Wex tern Pacific Ma/ Be Rexult of Vixit of Mu<lkc to Denver Recently. The Rock Island system will find an outlet west of Denver this year. The company has not given up all ideas of buying the Denver. North western & Pacific and if that pre sents the most feasible way to reach a connection with the West ern Pacific at Salt Lake City nego tiations will be opened with David H. Moffat for its purchase. The Rock Island is behind Uie Denver & Gulf and will finance the con struction of that line from Dallas to Denver and Colorado Springs. The above information comes direct from parties who were in close touch with H. U. Mudge. pres ident of the Rock Island system, who spent yesterday in Denver. Mr. Mudge “played golf” yester day afternoon, according to offi cial announcement given out this morning by the Rock Island offi cials. The principal objections to the purchase of the Moffat road. a.* put forth by the officials, after ex amining the special report made bj Chief Engineer James Berry, was the expensive cost of operation ovei the heavy grades and the neces sity for constructing the tunne. through James peak if the lint was to be used for transcontinen tal traffic. These drawbacks, how ever, are not such that they will definitely prevent the Rock Island from purchasing the road If othei arrangements to get to Salt I-Aki CH|y cannot be made upon more advantageous terms. The object in constructing the Denver & Gulf is not only to get a direct route from the gulf coast to the proposed outlet to the Paci fic, but to put the system In a posi tlon for the Northwest. Mr. Mudge returned last night accompanied by A. C. Ridgway. —Denver Times. Increase in Prices of Meats in the Principal Foreign Countries. Meat prices have advanced In all the principal producing and con suming sections of the world, ac cording to compilations just mad< by the Bureau of Statistics of th« Department of Commerce and I*a bor. The figures which the Bureau | has complied consist chiefly of the export prices of the principal meat exporting countries of the world and the import and quoted whole sale prices in the chief meat-im porting and consuming countries. The chief meat-exporting countriet are Australia, New Zealand. Argon tlna, Canada, and the United Stat es; and the chief meat-lmportiny countries, the United Kingdom. Ger many and, in a less degree, the other European countries. All of the meat-exporting countries show higher prices per pound in their ex ports in recent years than thos< of a decade ago, and all of the meat-importing countries show high er rates in their import figures and in the current market quota tions. Chicago Tribune Hoax. Three more Republican papers have been heard from in Speaker Cannon’s district and the genuine poll now stands: For Cannon, 22, againßt Cannon, 1; noncommital, 1 The three additional papers are the Ridge Farm Republican, Loda Times and Kansas Journal. In the pretended poll of the Chicago Tribune the figures given were: For Cannon, 6; against Cannon, 12. Arrangements are on foot for a j meeting of the Republican editor? _ of the district to take action on 1 the Tribune’s fraudulent poll. The recklessness of the hoax is one of its strangest features. When the j Republican editors of several states are called on to deal with false hood on this scale they realize that the cause the Tribune has ’ been trying to bolster is absolutely rotten. —St. Louis Globe-Democrat. J The Weary World. To be a hermit in the virgin woods. To roam, unwashed, the sylvan solitudes. That Is the graft to which ambition turns, that Is the life for which my spirit yearns. To dwell serenly in a shelt ered cave, to eat raw turnips, and to cease to shave; no more to hear complaining people roar about the price of of foodstuffs at the store; no more to hear the talk smith tell us how to save the coun try, bound for ruin now; no more to dodge the dreary bore who quot es the tariff rates on whiskers, prunes and goats . Oh, I tired of all the windy crew, wh talk, and talk, until the air is blue; each has a cure for all the na tion’s ills, like some quack docto with hi« basswood pUU; each I The Lamar Register indignant that he isn’t called, to dope the country, sick, and worn, and bald; to pour his nostrum down the nation’s throat, and thereby get that weary nation’s .goat. A quiet man. who would sedately pass, detesting noise, and talk, and sound ing brass, has little chance his pathway to pursue, he’s hounded down by all the talksmith crew; a little while he may his Journey wend, but they will drive him bughouse in the end. To be a her mit, far from city streets. To wear long whiskers and to live on beets. That is the dream that haunts my fevered brain; the ur ban life has given me a pain.— Walt Mason 'n Denver News. Thankful for Something. The Yellow Jacket wishes, through the columns of this pulse warmer for frost-hearted Democrats, to tender Its thanks to the two well meaning but woefully negle t ed individuals who have placed our name on the complimentary list ofthe Appeal to Terason. Like the bull calf that tried to butt the freight engine off the track, we -idmire their gall but pity their judgment. And yet we can make , ise of both copies of the Appeal to Treason, and we will do so, out of respect for the cheerful senders. The paper is too green to burn, so we can’t kindle the fire with it hese cold days. It won’t do to wrap up groceries with because it unells too fishy; the office cat ac tually refuses to sleep on it the -oldest night that froze the ears »ff a brass monkey, but when the Uinger is morose and sad, when tis heart is borne down with grief •»ver erring Democrats and booze lewhiskered calamity howlers; when ndigestlon, liver trouble, heart lisease, small pox, scurvy, mange, bubonic plague, cholera, typhus fev •r, dipthera, measles and appendicl ls have all seized us at a ':llp, we an take a look at the Appeal to Treason, thank the Lord and say iiat with all these ailments, at east we are not a Socialist.—North Carolina Yellow Jacket . Mr. Pinchot as a Witness. Mr. Plnchot as forester and as lie chief advocate of conservation ias, as the president wrote him oat September, rendered the ooun ry “immense services;” and the •ountry is thoroughly appreciative. Jr. Plnchot as both wituess and hief prosecutor in the Ballinger investigation did not make a good bowing. He hurt himself, and he lelpcd rather than hurt Ballinger. This also the country has seen clear y; for the country has. after all. >ome sense. It was a mistake to preface his sworn testamony with i too sweeping unsworn announce ment of what he was going to prove. It was a worse mistake to '.cruse Ballinger in that announce ment of having deceived the presl lent with three false statements of a<t, when it was bound to appear ater that those three misstatements cere not really Ballinger's, but ils former law partner’s, and when is Mr. Plnchot had to admit, he nlmself knew that Ballinger had ■orreetly stated those very facts 'o the president before showing him the incorrect statement. It was worse still that Mr. Plnchot should lave had to admit further that he limself had made three important misstatements of fact in a letter to the president. To be too hot in controversy hurts one’s side, n still plainer American, it is advisable to keep one’s shirt on. Mr. Plnchot’s discomfiture as a witness does not, however, positive ly strengthen the case for Ballin ger. Tha't is yet to be presented, and the country should take It strictly on its merits. The only man whose case before the people is really strengthened by Mr. Pin hot’s appearance is the president. He may have been mistaken in the general Judgment expressed in that letter of last September to Mr. Plnchot, which was produced before the committee; but the judicial tone of the letter Itself, the poise and balance of it, the mingling of kind ness and firmness, make it quite the most winning thing that has come from his pen since he took office. We believe it will strength en him with the people because we believe, as we have Just remarked, •.hat this country has some sense. —Harper’s Weekly. NOTICE.
