It looks as though the European powers intended to divide up China. At Dillon, Colorado mercury registered 40 below zero Tuesday morning. The coldest ever known at that place. Parson Uzzell got over 4000 rabbits out of the Lamar hunt to give to the poor of Denver tor Christmas dinner. The La Junta Tunes has been merged into the Rocky Ford Rep ublican, which latter paper ex poets to become the leading p’aper of the Arkansas valley. Dr. Cresswell reports that little scab exists among sheep in South ern part of Colorado, and attrib utes the healthy condition to the law which compels the dipping ot sheep. The wire manufacturers are forming a trust, lor the purpose they say, of making their product cheaper. Probably they do not intend to perpetrate a huge joke but it looks like n. The new quarantine line estab lished by secretary Wilson runs along the southern boundary of Colorado and Kansas and shall be up from the 15th of January to Nov 15th each year. This seeni3 to be a great season for the formation of trusts. Re cently a big cracker trust, a paper trust and a wire trust has been or ganized. Buy of them and you will probably get trusted till busted. The millionaire packing firm ot Armour tfc Co., saw a great op portunity, recently to speculate in wheat futures. They are just now delivering the grain and re nhze a million dollar loss. Belter stick to pork and beef. The greeting of Wm J. Bryan by President Diaz and his minis ters. was almost as dazzling and cordial ns would be accorded an actual ruler. This shows how foreigners look upon Mr. Bryan pnd the cause he represents. Senator Hanna will establish headquarters at Columbus, Ohio, till the election ot a senator has been accomplished. Ihere is lit tle doubt but that he will succeed himself in the senate, but it may cost him a little more money. Mary E. Lease, of Kansas, an nounces that she is going to run for congress m the 7th district, on the Populist ticket. She gives it her opinion that “Sockless Jer ry” cannot be reeleotod in that district. She would be a promi nent figure in congress. Judge Bailey, who ran for gov ernor last year on the Populist ticket, announces that hereafter he will act with the Democratic party. He believes the next pres ident will he a Democrat, elected by the South and West, on a Deqv pcratic ticket. The Cubans are reported to have won a victory over the Spanish, on the 14th. inst. The Spanish general Pando, is reported as saying it will require 100.009 sol diers to pacify the eastern part of tlie island. Senator Chandler sounds a warning note to the Republican party in the following style: “If the secretary ot the treasury and his single gold standard asso ciates will cease their demand for impossible currency legislation. Congress will pass the necessary appropiiation bills, probably take care of Hawaii and Cuba, there will be no serious party division during the session and there will be an adjournment m May. Business will revive, the balance of trade will continue in our favor and the Republican party will, in November 189 S, elect a majority of the House in the lifty-filth Con gress. On (he other hand, if Sec retary Gage continues to press up on Congress a bill the object lie says is first, to commit the coun try more thoroughly to the gold standard, and the immediate re sult of which is to throw doubts upon the sincerity ot the presi dent’s declarations in favor of con tinued efforts to secure bimetal lism, a political turmoil will arise in Congress which will split the now united Republican party into fragments, while it will unite and consolidate the now incongruous of position.” The Chicago Record’s postal savings bank bill was introduced in the house of representatives on the opening day of the congress ional session by Representatives Loriiner, the Chicago membsr of the house committee on postoffi ces and postroads. The bill was referred at once to the postoflice committee, according to the usual custom. It was introduced in the senate a day or two later by Senator Mason, who is a member of the senate postoflice com mittee. It is upon these commit tees that attention must center for the present of those interested in the passage of a law lor the establishment of the postal sav ings bank system. The earnest agitation among the people has forced upon all the members of congress consideration of this subject, with the result that it is discussed in Washington to an extent that it never has before. The chairman of the house com mittee is an opponent of the postal bank idea, but other leading mem bers are friendly to the plan. The first and, indeed, the severest test of strength, therefore, must come in the postoflice committee. If a postal savings bank bill is re ported favorably by that commit tee and brought to a vote m the house, there can be but little doubt ot the outcome on the floor. Fortunately, ns the result ot popular agitation, and because of the aggressive spirit which the lnendsof the measure in congress are manifesting, the subject is one that cannot be ignored or pigeonholed. Never before has the number ot members actively interested in the success of this project been so great. Sentiment in favor of postal savings banks seems to be even stronger in the senate than among the members of the house. It is expected that a bill will be reported from the senate committee without great difliuulty, with the chances good for its passage through the senate. The more that members of con gress, and especially of the post office committees, can be made to feel individually the deep inter est of the public in this matter the more likely will they be to take early action looking to the establishment of the postal sav ings bank system.—Chicago liec ord. When a man drops a piece of meat on the floor, no difference how clean the floor may be. he either gives it a kick or picks it up and lays it to one side. He will never eat it. But let him drop his plug of tobacco on the street, and no difference Jiow dirty SPRINGFIELD, BACA COUNTY, COLORADO, FRIDAY, DECEMBER, 21, 1897. the street may le, he will pick it up, give it a careless wipe on liis coat sleeve, or on the bosom of lus pants, and then take a lug chew from it with a keener relish than ever. That is the kind of a vitrified brick man is.—Ex. A man traveling on a Missouri train said he could tell by the looks ol the pas. e .ige;s what po litical party thev belonged to. “This man here,” said the passen ger, “is a Bryan Democrat.” “Yes,” said the passenger, “that’s my politics.” “Tint man over there is a sound money demo crat.” “That’s correct,” respond ed the passenger. “That man in the third scat is a populist." “Correct you are,” said the Pop ulist. “And t fiat man down furthur is a Republican and voted for McKinley.” “No 1 am 1101,“ promptly responded the fellow. “I’ve been sick; that’s uliat makes me look this way.”—Ex. 111 Memory of Sir. Stewart. Lot Christ heal your lirokou hearts And do not so sadly weep When you sea your dear one still and cold. For he is In Christ mdcap. Ilow desolate Is the home from which he ' passed away. Yet lie Is safe with God la a home of end less day. Out of the dreary tomb Rose Christ the Holy one; Up from tlie darkness and gloom God's woll-bclovcd son— Econ as Christ arose from the dark tomb sad and lone. Even so he will arise, our dear friend who Is gone. SI a 11 V lilt AV. NOTICE. (Copy.) IJ. 8. Land Office, I.nmar, Colo., Nov. fi 18i'7. Complaint having been entered at this office bv A. G. 11.
