MONDAY, JULY 3 1899 From Our Neighbors Yes let us whoop her up for a smelter for Grand Junction.—Glenwood Aval auche. * * * State smelters Is ths solution of the smelter trust, but while this is being brought about we would suggest an an ti-trust smelter at Grand Junction. It would pay—Ridgway Populist. * * * Joe Swan’s Deßeque Bugle is not in tune, as Joe had his ambition to become a perpetual game and fish warden trod upon when the office went to the Silver Republicans, and he has not as yet for given fate for cruelty.—Durango Demo crat. * * * A smelter is talked of at Grand Junc tion aud it ought to materialize into a certainity. Grand Junction is just the place for a smelts**, and a big plant there wou'd do much to make mining men independent of the smelter trust which certainly canu it be depended on. Silverite Plaindealer. * * * The Sentinel complains that Grand Junction is over-run witu bums. Why don't you establish a stone pile and put them to breaking rock for paving or macadamizing the streets. There is nothing so effective for inducing /‘wan dering Willies” to walk around a town. While they may question that there are sermons in stone they do not want a practical demonstration of the 'fact Telluride Journal. * * * The Grand Junction smelter project is certainly being favorably commented up on and there is no denying the fact that it is excellently located for reduction of ores. A smelter at Grand Junction would effect a great saving to shippers in the Ouray-Aepen-Leadville and in tervening districts. Fuel, proximity to all grades of ore and tluxing, aud a down hill pull is an advantage worth consider* ing and one which the town in question enjoys.—Durango Democrat. * * * The Ouray Silverite Pluindealer has the following to say of Grand Master Mason DoLon. ’s speech recently made at Ouray: Horace T. DeLong of Grand Juuction, Grand Master of the state, re sponded vo ‘‘How rough should an Ash ler be or how smooth a Mason,” aud his el< quent flow of language and new ideas on the subject was listened to with c.ose attention by all assembled. His £dis cription of the rough stoue made smooth by the artisan und operative mason in comparison with the smoothing of tho rough traits of man by the speculative mason was very instructive and inter esting. The Grand Master is an orator of high standard and his remarks have an elevating influence upon man and womankind. SENIBLS ADVICE. Some of the Grand Junction papers are agitating ths question of a smelter for that place. That Is the correct thing to do. That city is right in the midst of the richest mining region in the west. It is a down-hill pull from every mining camp on this side of the range. A smelter there would find eoal in an enlese quantity aud plenty of lime and other fluxing material near at hand. The proper thing for Grand Junction editors to do is to leave off their petty personal quarreling and pull together like men should. What do their read ers cars about what brand of booze one aet uaee, or whether certain others had their billa paid by some one else. Very few people believe atatements that are made solely for the purpose of injuring another’s credit. Harmoniously work ing together, great things could be ac compliahed. Tearing down others and their work will never accomplish good. Get together, gentlemen of the press, and fulfill the great purpose for which all true journalism was intended: the building up of character and country.— Mesa County Mail.

P. TRAIN BANDITS. Hrleua—United States Marshal Wool man today received a message from Marshal Grant of Texas regarding the men now held at billon, Mont., under suspicion that they were implicated in the robbery of the Union Pacific train Wyoming. Tho men have been held ou suspicion that they are the Roberts Bros, but tho Texas official lias another i lea of it. He telegraphed from Paris Texas. “Your deputy Meiklejohn wires uie that he holds 1 ave Putty and Bud Nolan. I know them both. Both are desperate criminals and bolh in my opiuion were in the Union Pacific train robberj. 1 believe I know all the men constituting the gang that robbed the train and where the plot was formed Have you any others arrested under suspicion, if so wire descriptions and names, as I think I can aid you in the capture and conviction of these men.” Officers here now believe that the men are not the Roberts brothers, but will hold suspects awaiting further in formation. MAY COME WEST. Washington—Senator Carter of Mon tana called upon the President to pre sent him with formal invitations to visit Great Falls, Helena, Butte and Missoula when he goes west on his trip. The president says he has not abandoned his intention to make a western trip if con ditions permit, but stated that he would not be able to attempt the trip before the middle of August. He could not fix a date and could not say positively that he desired to go. The president added that he would like to pass through Montana after the Montana regiment in the Philipines had come home. This is taken to indicate that the president will start on his west ern trip late in the summer, and that he will try to go to a number of the west ern states which furnished volunteer troops In the Philippines. In this way he will be able to shake hands with the returned soldiers. M H-IMMUfilMlHldilllMlllliyUHiiilMWMHaarii j The First Gun Your Gain t t The Greatest - j CLEARING | \ - - - SALE \ « f ?
