THURSDAY, NOV. n, 1880. ALL MAIL INTENDED FOR! THIS CAMP, THE CENTRE OF THE GREAT RUBY MINING DISTRICT, SHOULD BE AD DRESSED TO IRWIN, GUNNISON COUNTY COLO. Oar town dads are “ in a stew.” Laborers are scarce and in demand. Let us'organize a hook and ladder company. Don’t forget the mite party Friday night. Cullom has 12,000 pounds of goods on the road. Flour, (9 per hundred; potatoes, 10 cents each. The Presbyterian church has a new set of song books. Rose, Reed & Co. will give you a correct assay or mill return. Col. Holt intends erecting a $lO,- 000 building in Irwin next spring. Cullom, the Tenth street grocer, is in receipt of new’ goods. We hope soon to see the Ruby Scouts out on diess parade with snow shoes. It will take a corps of repairers to keep the telegraph line up during this winter. - ♦-« We hope no one will wait until Christmas to present us with a pair of snow shoes. As we go to press there is two feet of snow on the level, and the storm is still raging. We had an extra mail last Saturday night. Our citizens paid for it to learn the election news. Woods & Highwarden, the barbers, are bulding a small addition to their shop for Mr. McCabe, to be used as a restaurant. The Ladies’ Aid Society will hold a * Mite Party ” in the Presbyterian church, to-morrow (Friday) night. All are invited. This business of firing off pistols and guns in our streets at night, should be stopped, if not,some one will get kill ed by a stray shot. Dr. Shuttler will commence the erection of a building, size 20x40, on ius mill bite, just below the Ruby King, next Monday. A great deal of lumber and shingles is being sawed and piled away for the building boom next spring, and most of it is already engaged. Harding received a large invoice of hardware last Saturday. He is deter mined that our camp shall not want for goods in his line this winter. On Friday morning, at 7 o’clock, the thermometer stood thirteen de grees below zero. The truit, vege tables, canned and bottled goods of most of our merchants, were destroy ed. Coal oil (the article we have in Irwin) froze solid. A Thanksgiving dinner will be given by the Ladies’ Aid Society at *he Presbyterian church, on Thanks giving Day. The late supjier given by these ladies is guarantee sufficient that the dinner will be a success in every respect. We hope our miners and citizens generally will send us items of inter est. As we are running our office on an economical plan—one man doing all the work—it is impossible for us to be on the street and among the mines much. We would also be pleased to j have miners to call upon us. Harding is in his new building on ' ipper Ninth street. It is the most substantial and commodious building in town. Its roof has a “ pitch ” that defies snow remaining upon it, and if a fly lights upon it the insect is sure to slide off and break its neck. Not; only is this house complete, but its! contents of hardware is even more complete. Harding has everything iiOOL a. cork-screw up to a stamp mill. PERSONAL Ex-Marshal Kyle is in Leadville. Phil Peters left for Petersburg last Tuesday. Dr. Jennings, of Gunnison, was in town last Saturday. I. Q. Sanborn, Esq., was in town the fore part of the week. Our friend T. T. Childers, Esq., of Gunnison, visited us Saturday. We are indebted to M. G. Mullow ney, Esq., for foreign papers. W. A. Staples gathered up all his old boots and departed for parts un known yesterday. “Pick” Howell and John Hurt, our celebrated snow-shoests have left camp for a short period. Dr. Reid is the busiest man in town —not with patients, but with road matters. Whoop ’em up, Doc. That broth o’ a b’y, Maloney, has concluded to remain with us all win ter. He is to be our Santa Claus. Geo. Ady, Esq., general ticket agent of the Denver & South Park road, has kindly sent us a time-table of his route. McDougal is the most stylish lawyer in Irwin since he discarded his straw hat. He now occupies elegantly fur nished apartments and waits on his clients in dressing gown and slippers. Chas. Baker, Esq,, of Rosita, our old journalistic friend, stopped with us one day this week. Charley has proved a true friend to us in times past and we will always remember him with gratitude. W. W. Wood and John Cromwall, two of the old timers of this capip, started for New Mexico and Arizona yesterday. They will return in the spring to work there mines, some of which are very valuable. John E. Phillips, the junior mem ber of the Pilot firm, starts for the City of Brotherly Love, to-morrow. He will spend about two months in America, taking in all the sights of Philadelphia, New York, Chicago and other metropolitan towns. Capt. Curtis, of the Ruby Scouts, is better acquainted with the Utes, their habits, haunts, modes of warfare, etc., than any other man in Gunnison county. He understands their lan guage thoroughly, and acted as inter preter tp the late commission. Irwin is fortunate in having such a man at the head of her military organization. Col. Phil Peters, I. Q. Sanborn and Lee Frankeberger started for Spring Creek on Tuesday. These gentlemen have great faith in that district, and justly they should too, for we think there will be the biggest boom in that district that Gunnison county has ever seen. The carbonates are there, and with the proper development that place will be a second Leadville. THE GREAT TRIPLE ROUTE Travelers from Gunnison and San Juan desiring to go east via Alpine Pass, should bear in mind that J. L. Sanderson & Co’s. Stages over the new Toll Road, make the closest con nections at Hortense with the fast trains of Denver and Rio Grande Railway. This is a popular route to Leadville, Pueblo and Denver. J. L. Sanderson & Co’s Stages via Marshall Pass present easiest and most travied outlet, with most excellent con nections with this line at South Ar kansas, making the shortest and by eight to twelve hours the quickest time to the Missouri River and all points East. This Stage route will rapidly grow shorter, as work is be ing pushed vigorously on the Denver and Rio Grande Railway’s Gunnison Line, via Marshall Pass, and the Stages will in a few days connect at end of track instead of South Arkansas. The same company’s stages make still a third connection over good roads j with the same Railway at Alamosa, I thus affording a choice of three great routes, at lowest rates, between inte rior points and Pueblo, Denver and the East. The Denver and Rio | j Grande is building railroad farther I j than any line in the world, and within j j six months the hum of its palitial j ' trains will be heard in the streets of j Gunnison City, Silverton, Animas and ; scores of other thriving towns of Gun nison and San Juan. It is a time of brihant promises and still more bril liant fulfillments. I I Messrs. Woods and High warden ; have reduced the price of (hot and cold) baths from $i to 50c.
