Findley Duffield is the new edi

Welcome to Delta county Mr.
Duffield—The Newspaper (Pao
The first issue of the Delta
INDEPENDENT under the manage
ment of Editor Duffieid made its
appearance this week. In his
introductory remarks the new
editor shows evidence of being a
long winded cuss. Here’s hoping
that many of the good things will
fall to his lot and that Delta will
grow to be a big city—Grand
Findley Duffield, an old lowa
friend of the editor of the Tri
bune, has purchased the Inde
pendent. of Delta, Colo., and
the first paper under his manage
ment was issued last week. Mr.
Duffield was for ten years editor
and publisher of the Record at
North English, lowa, and was
postmaster of that town for two
terms. He is a desirable citizen !
for any town anti a first-class j
newspaper man, and the people j
of Delta are assured a good news-1
paper so long as he is at the helm j
of the Independent!— Elbert
The Delta Independent this j
week changes hands and will,
hereafter bo published and edited
by Mr. Findley Duffield. We do;
not know Mr. I. fi old, hut opine!
from his introductory that he is j
a man of much experience in I
newspaper work yet a newcomer |
to this part of the world. Hej
promises to give the people of;
Delta county a good newspaper
and one which, incidentally, 1
will be of good, clean Republican j
principles. With the rest of the!
newspaper men of the Western j
Slope, Republican and Democrat!
—for they’re all good fellows—
we welcome Mr. Duffield and I
wish him all kinds of happiness
and prosperity in that garden j
spot of Colorado. Lake City j
Delta Independent is now in
the hands of Findley Duffield of
lowa. Mr. Duffield is an up-to
date man and we look for the
Independent to be kept up to the
standard of excellence set by
Rood. We are not advised what
Rood will do in the future but
wish him all the success possible
in whatever line he may choose
to work. Paonia Booster.
The Delta Independent has!
been purchased from L. VV.'
Kood by Findley Duffield and we
look forward to a rattling good i
paper in the future. Mr. Rood i
made a decided improvement in j
that sheet while he had charge, j
but we still look for greater j
things from Mr. Duffield. The]
Independent has a good field to j
work from and will surely im-j
prove under the proper manage
ment. Hotchkiss Herald.
The latest exchange to reach j
our desk is the Delta Independent j
of Delta, Colorado, and at the
head of the editorial column are
the words “Findley Duffield,
proprietor.” And Findley is back
in the harness again. We knew
he contemplated such an act, but
did not look for its consummation
just quite so soon. The people
of Delta are indeed fortunate to
have as good a newspaper man
as Findley Duffield guiding the
destinies of their town for we
know his ability to do that very
! thing and do it right. Words of
| praise for Findley as an editor J
and all around newspaper man
: would be superfluous. All who
' know him will coincide with that
j statement. We herewith append
an extract from his introductory
! which has the Duffield stamp
upon it and rings true.—North
English (Iowa) Record.
The Newspaper, published at
Paonia, celebrates the beginning |
of its third year by coming out
in enlarged size. Editor Rawaltj

It seems that a tempest in a
teapot has been stirred up at 1
Paonia over the disposition of
some ranchmen to use Japanese
labor. The Paonia papers j umped !
on to the idea with both feet and!
advertisements have been sent
all over the country in an effort
to obtain white labor. This is,
none of the INDEPENDENT’S!
affair, but we imagine the ranch
men will do about as they please
in regard to whom they employ. '
The writer has been on the East
ern Slope for several years where
much Jap labor is used in the,
cultivation of beets and we are
under the impression that they
are quite well thought of.
The Democratic state convention
will oe held in Denver September 11.
With almost a complete county ticket
to nominate this fall there are un
doubtedly numerous citiz-ena of the
county who aspire to the offices. We (
are accustomed to seeing prospective ,
candidates announce their intentions i
and we believe.it is a good plan as it
gives the people a chance to view the
field from the standpoint the best
selections. It is not going to do the
strong aspirant any harm> to let the
people know' that he want a- a certain

M It now appears that Delta will have
two good papers since both have
changed hands in the past two months.
Delta deserves good papers and busi
ness men are willing to patronize them.
C. F. Wheeler, at Elberta, came near
losing his residence by fire on Tuesday
evening. A fire had been started in
the stove, which is in the canvas addi
tion, and in some way the roof caught. ,
1 The damage was slight.
C. Rutler yesterday purchased the
fine 400 acre ranch of Wm. McMil
lan, near Crawford, at 849’ per acre.
Mr. butler will still continue to supply
the needs of the people in the furniture
line. Mr. McMillan has another ranch
on which he will live.
The excellent write-up of the Surfac l *
Creek country in the Delta Independ
ent speaks well for the entsrpr se of
the new editor. In that one article
ihe said more for that country than
1 their home paper has since' it was
started. That is the kind of boosting
that the* country needs and %ve hope lo
j tee more of it in the future.

WINTON’S is the best
for domestic purposes-
It is clean and nice to hold fire. Will have plenty on hand,
both here and at the mines. Roads good to mines and no
mountains to pull.
Another thing to remember is that when you
buy Win ton's Coal you support a home industry
and your money pays for home labor that in
turn buys home products.
