The farmers and stockmen of Colorado are planning for a con vention at Glenwood Springs, July.. 22-24, for the purpose of considering the many new laws to be submitted to the vote of the people next fall under the in itiative and referendum. Republicans are making every effo.-t to minimize the opposition shown by Secretary Fisher of the Interior Department to the pass age of the Three Year Homestead Bill. It was not with his assist ance, but in spite of his opposition that the bill was passed. In fact the hardest work congressman Taylor had in connection with the bill was to keep out the obnoxious provisions of Mr. Fisher, who, when he saw it impossible to de feat the bill, endeavored to load it with nullifying and obnoxious provisions. We can not too strongly urge the screening of doors and w in dows to prevent the. ingress of flies, and we should be very care ful to prevent the egress by killing any fly caught inside the house. A perfectly reliable fly poison, which is harmless to hum ans, is this: Dissolve one dram of bichromate of potash in two ounces of water, and add a little sugar; put in shallow dishes and set about. A spoonful of formalin or formaldehyde in half cupful of water and expose in the room will kill all the flies. Or heat a shovel or other article and pour thereon twenty drops of carbolic acid; the vapor will kill the flies. “The republican party is op posed to special privilege and monopoly.” This, an excerpt from the republican national platform, would be funny, if it was not so serious. j The republican national con vention held in Chicago last week renominated Taft and Sherman for president and vice president respectively. These two worthies have given us four years of re publican administration almost as disastrous to the common peo ple and as satisfactory to plutoc racy as the administrations of Theodore Roosevelt. I He is a Good Official. James B. Pearce, Secretary of State is one of the most competent and reliable democrats that has ever served the people. Mr. Pearce has conducted his office with great credit to our present adiministration and it is our be lief that the people could select no better man for this office than him. Democratic Campaign Fund. We are in receipt of a letter from Hon, M. A. Skinner, of Den ver President of the Colorado Federation of Democratic Pre cinct Clubs, asking for a sub scription from the loyal demo crats of Cheyenne county to go into the general campaign fund for the purpose of making the most vigorous campaign ever made in the state. The Eastern I Colorado Times starts the sub scription with $25. Let every resident of Cheyenne county that wants to see the dem ocrat party win this fall, send to Walter L. Bales, editor of the Eastern Colorado Times, what ever subscription you can afford to make and it will be sent to Mr. Skinner at once. Taft Nominated. I 4 Last Saturday night at 10:00 ( o’clock, Taft and Sherman were . nominated for president and vice i president respectively by the big republican convention at Chicago, after the jnost disgraceful pro- , ceeding ever indulged in by any , other convention of any party in the history of the United States. No midnight assassin, hard on , the hunt for blood money, ever resorted to such a disgraceful steal as did Taft and his national committee when they seated in the convention (through the com mittee on credentials) for Taft, delegates that were sent to the 1 convention instructed for Roose- j velt. All semblance of honor and courtesy were totally aband oned by Taft rnd his crowd, and the most riotous" disorder marked what was supposed to be their deliberations. Roosevelt was robbed of the 1 nomination by a gang of the I most desperate thieves ever per mitted to affiliate with any party. One on the Fly. Oh you fly.

Republican Gang Seek to De stroy. The republican gang of Chey enne county realizing that they are beaten to a standstill, are urging the socialists, through the columns of their kept newspaper, and otherwise, to put a ticket in the local field, the result of which would be a great benefit to the gang. % Some of this desperate band of political counterfeits are using every means within their knowl edge to induce the socialists to walk into their trap, that they, the socialists, may be certain of destruction. When you are ap proached by this gang, or any of its henchmen, you may be certain that it is for their benefit they want to use you, and not for any good they are going to do you.' I They are not putting themselves ( to any cost or trouble to do good i for anyone, much less the social ist party. You have a fine ex ample of their love for the social ist party in the last city election. Review what this gang of politi cal butchers did to the leading member of the socialist party in ■ Cheyenne county.

Phon*as to draw the socialist vote to their support by openly repudiating their own acts and putting the good name of Don Sears on a ticket there was no legal author ity for and wholly without his knowledge or They drew enough support from peo ple who were attracted by the stability and character of a man like Mr. Sears, who, when they realized he was going to be elect ed, drew their knives and stabbed him in the back by voting against him and defeated him for a place on the city council that they are afraid for a man of the honesty and integrity of a man like Don Sears to fill. A fine argument indeed, to try to’placate you with promises of their support, if you will put a county ticket in the field. They have promised their support to every candidate of every party for the last ten years. They will pledge you or tell you anything to deceive you. All they want is your vote, and as soon as they get that, you can go to work to make ends meet the best way you can, while they will go to the court house and levy enough taxes on you to support them selves on for another two years. It isn’t for any good that can result to you that they want you to put out a ticket. It’s the good that such action on your part would bring to them. They know that if they can take from the democrats the 24 socialist votes in the county that I were cast two years ago, and a few that might have been add ed since, that it just lends them that much help to re-elect the same old gang that has raised taxes every year and that will continue to raise them year after year, as long as they can remain your masters instead of your servants -and they will be your masters just so long as you keep them in your county offices and in the court house.
