That Is one more reason why EOTOGRAFER DEAR'S patrons are all handsome SUGAR FACTORY WILL BE OPERATED NEXT FALL. On the very best authority The Sen tinel can say that the Grand Junction Sugar factory will run this year. The only statement made heretofore on the subject was the one made by Mr. Byers in the Chamber of Commerce meeting, when lie asked the moral support of the chamber. In an interview had yesterday with Judge Alfred Hand, of Scranton, Pennsylvania, who has become large ly interested in the stock of the com pany Judge Hkhd stated that final and uositive arrangements had been made for beginning the work and that Charles N. Cox, formerly of this city would have the active management of the factory. Judge Hand when interviewed by a Sentinel reporter was on his way to Colorado Springs to join John R. Me- Kiunic and Mr. Cox, where final and definite arrangements will be made to place the work of organization upon a permanent footing. Judge Hand said that himself, and Messrs. McKinnie and Cox would arrive in the city some time the early part of next week and that not one stone would be left unturned to at once secufe the neces sary acreage and not one minute lost in planting a crop this year. Judge Hand has formally years pres ided ppon the district bench in Penn sylvania. Notwithstanding his work upon the bench Judge Hand has been largely connected witli manufacturing institutions and is thoroughly inform ed on machinery. When here a short time ago, the factory was examined and lie says the machinery is all in shipshape order and that so far as the factory is concerned it needs little re A FISHY STORY. Gail Murray and Gates Kersberg Fall Victims to a Joke. Too good a joke to be kept is told by Gail Murray and Gates Kersberg, on themselves, although the principal part of the joke falls on the broad shoulders of Mr. Kersberg, who at first did not view' the matter in the light of a joke, as he is slowly com ing to see it. When Mr. Kersberg ar rived here the last time from Meeker to look over his property interests, lie brought with him some splendid trout, which he proposed to distribute among some of his warm friends in this city. He arrived at night and having no place to keep the toothsome fish, he ' took them to The Abbey, Murray Bros. proprietors, thinking they i would be perfectly safe in the ice box of that place. Mr. Kersberg is the , owner of the building in which the saloon is located. He gave them to the night clerk saying that he would . let them remain until morning. The night clerk paid little attention to the matter and when he went off shift 1 at midnight, left no word as to the ownership of the fish. In the morn ing Mr. Gail Murray arrived at his place of business. On opening the ice i box he detected the smell of fish, and ] with a chuckle to himself he said, i there are those fish, mentioning the r name of a certain party, who had 1 promised him a mess. He saw noth- I iug upon the package claiming owner- ( ship, and when his brother arrived i they began dividing the fish, think- g ing they were their own. Their dream i of the delight i which they had enjoy- ; ed for their breakfast was brought to l a sudden standstill, later in the morn- J iug when when Mr. Kersberg called at the saloon for his fish, desiring them to distribute to his friends, whom he had notified that they were i coming. His face turned all shades when Mr. Murray frankly confessed y that he had eaten a goodly portion of the fish. The chagrin of Mr. Murray was unutterable, but even greater was Mr. Kersberg’s. The latter could not see how such a mistake could be made. In fact he did not feel at all in good ' humor, believing that they were jok ing him. Mr. Kersberg could not be appeased at first, by even the most violent protests of Mr. Murray that it was all a mistake, a mean mistake. ' When Mr. Kersberg brings any more fish to town, he will be very careful Grand Junction, Colorado, Friday, April 17, 1903. pair and correspondingly less renewals. People who have been in doubt whether to plant some acreage to seed, we believe cau go right ahead and pre pare for planting, as it is a certainty that those who are now in control of the holdings of the company are deter mined to run the factory this year. The Sentinel is glad to place this authoritive statement of the opening and running of the sugar factory be fore the public. No industrial enter prise will do more for the general pub lic, if the public cau only be made to i think so, than a sugar factory. The building and the placing of the present factory in operation ifi this city, was the beginning of prosperous times, for they have been prosperous * in this city for the past few years, matter* not what they have been in the past or what the future may hold in store. Manager Cox is to be con gratulated that lie is again to hold the ; lever of management of this factory. In the tw’o years lie ran the factory he hardly had a fair show. Since leaving Grand Junction permanently to eugage in the building and opera tion of sugar factories in this state, Mr. Cox has been an eminently suc cessful promoter and operator. He has not only secured the funds for construction of several plants but has successfully operated one or more. It 1 is natural that lie should feel ambi ; tious to place the present factory on a successful running basis, as it was his brains and energy that secured the oapiital to build it and it was the in -1 auguration of the sugar industry in the state. that they reach the right throats. Mr. Murray was entirely innocent of the matter, as he iiad been promised a mess of the gamey fidi by a friend aim he was sure as any one cau be. that the fish in his own ice chest were the ones intended for him. Mr. Kersberg who is a broad-mind ed fellow, when he realized that the whole circumstance was a strange blunder as much his fault as imj' one’s, took the right view of the mat ter, ami now* he and Mr. Murray are able to meet and laugh over the strange predicament which they were gotten into by a mistake. L. H. Bisbee. formerly connected with the Rio Grande express, is laid up at Glenw’ood Springs, with a severe case of rheumatism. The contract for the erection of the Gates Kersberg new building on Colo rado avenue, will soon be let. Con tractors are now’ figuring on same. The small boy is unhappy at the present time without a base ball suit. Happiness supreme lies in the fact that he is “togged” in the conven tional knickerbockrs and flowing w’aits. It is a good thing to let him be happy, while he may. If some one would discover <md. quar ry a first class stone for building pur poses near this city, he would have a mint of wealth in the next few years. The stone near this city is a very handsome sandstone, but it is too soft for building purposes and erodes in time to such an extent that it jeop ardizes the building. No handsomer stone could be found, but its firmness is problematical thus far. PA RK OPERA HOUSE Edwin A. Haskell, Manager. Tickets on sale at Haskell's Pharmacy. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 22nd. W, E.
