In a sermon delivered yesterday in one of the churches of the city, the worlity minister made reference to the announcement of the arrival in the city of some Mormon Elders and of the fact that they would endeavor to proselyte in this city and county for their church. The minister in his zeal furthermore said that the people should pay uo attention to the elders of that church or the fact that their church once taught polygamy. At the conclusion of the service, as was his wout the good minister passed quickly to the church door from the pulpit., to grasp by the liaud his worthy parishouers aud visitors to the church. As he grasped the hand of a stranger he inquired the name, and was met with the response, that lie “was one of those Moumou elders whom lie had made reference to in his sermon that morning. ’’ The good minister was some what taken aback, aud what reply he made, the bystand er conld not hear. It was rather a good joke on the minister and he was slightly uou-plussod by the manner of the Mormon brother. The residence of Charles F. Bow man, located near the slaughter house west of this city, canght fire in some manner this morning about 5 o’clock aud burned to the ground. The fur niture and building were completely destroyed. The house was used as a sleeping place for the employes of the company who were out on the ranch, and was occupied last night by Mr. Bowman himself. There was $2350 insurance on the building written in one of the companies for which M. Forry is the agent. “COLORADO” The New Armored Cruiser, Will Be Launched on April 25th, Philadelphia, April 18. —The scene in Cramps’ ship yard in preparation of the lannoh of the Armored cruiser Colorado on April 26th is a busy one. The last rivets are being driven into the Colorado’s plates and the vessel’s monster steel hull aflame with fresh red paint is at present propped up be tween almost interminable scaffold ing. The Peimsylvnaia, which is of the same class as the Colorado, is also on the ways a short distance away in rlie great shipbuilding yards. A Turkish cruiser looking like an iufsiut in comparison, is being built at the north. At a launch it is the hull only which is sent into the river. Then from the bnilders’ point of view, the real work of bnilding a ship begins, for when a war ship first takes to water, it is not. as a rnla more than fifty per cent complete. It is a rule, then taken in hand and improved by degrees. Great engines aud boilers must be placed in the depths of this frame of steel; thick plates of armor must be bolted around its water lino and over the ship’s vitals as a protec tive deck. All the internal fittings must be put in place and lastly it receives itß gnus. The cruiser Colorado is a veritable bee-liive of industry. The noise of innumerable pueaumtic riveters aud chisels on the interior of her great steel liul 1 i« music to the ears of the 7,000 employes, hut to the layman it is little short of deafening. Work men fairly swarm over the ship from swinging scaffolds hung at seemingly impossible places. Similar scenes prevail on the Pennsylvania, which will slide down the ways in May. when the fair hand of Miss Sue Quay, Senator Quay, bursts the golden corded bottle on its prow. The Colorado is one of six crack ships for the new navy. These six shi])s were provided for by the suc cessive acts of March 3rd, 1899, and June 7, 1900, but owing to a prolonged discussion as to whether or not they should be sheuthed or unsheathed, it was not until January of 1901, that the contracts for their construction was finally signed. By the delay, however the navy secured six identi cal vessels again that will he felt if they are ever required for concerted action in the time of conflict. The ships are 502 feet long on the load water line —a tenth of a mile — aud they have a maximum beam of nearly seventy feet. When laden for sea, with the normal coal supply, they will draw one inen to twenty four feet of water, and represent a dead weight of quite 1,500 tons. move this mass gainst wind aud tide in calm and in storm, is the task set the driving engines of these ships and to accomplish the work at a twenty-two knot clip, they are given twin screws, and twin triple-expan sion engines of a united energy of 23,000 indicated horsepower. To make this plain by comparison*' with facts commonly known to most of ns, twenty-two knots represents the equivalent of twenty-five and one third stutute miles, and the average freight train thundering along at a speed of twenty miles an hour, repre sents about a thousand tons. To supply these engines with steam aud to feed also the scores of mechan ical auxiliaries the Colorado and her mates will carry no fewer than thirty boilers of a quick steaming water tube type working at a pressure of 250 I>oands to the square inch —a hazard ous tension unless everything is tight aud sound. All the Armor is of the most im proved Kruppized type. Its distribu tion is as follows: The water line region is guarded by a broad seven and a half foot belt reaching from bow to stern. Amidships for a distance of 244 feet, abreast the engines, have a maximum thickness of six kindles. G. C. Frey, of Weatherby, Oregon, was a plaesant visitor to the city this morning. Mr. Frey is an old Penns ylvanian and while here made a pleasant call on the writer recalling old times in the Keystone state. Grand Junction, Colorado, Monday, April 20, 1903. R. H. HIGGINS.

It was a pleasure to see him jump in aud out his wa gon, transacting business here aud there witli the merchants. He man ufactured a brand of horseradish which had an extensive sale in the stores this city and elsewhere. His memory was most remarkable up to the time of his death. He wanted always to he recognized as a young man instead of an old one and he nover asked sympathy from any one because of his age. He was na turally proud of his physical condi tion at his great age. as anyone else would have been. Several years ago. he was attaeked with typhoid fever, which *o a certain extent undermined his wonderful constitution. He had hoped to reach the century mark aud donbtless would have, had he heed spared this attuck of pneumonia. In every transaction of his life he was square and punctiliously honor able.
