WESLEY STALEY, Pres. H. 0. NELSON, V. P.
J. W. STALEY, Cashier The Cheyenne County State Bank WE DO A GENERAL BANKING ANU COLLECTING BUSINESS. If you want to keep posted on the election news, and in touch with what is going on in general, order the Eastern Colorado Times. SI.OO for one year. You will be satified with the results. The democratic press of the state is practically unanimous in its support of C. H. Leckenby of Steamboat Springs, the democrat candidate for state auditor. Mr. Leckenby’s competency, weuld lend credit to the administration. The Zemp Case. A prominent republican wants to know what has become of the Zemp case. In his communication he says in part: * ‘Since the publication in the Denver Post of a letter from Warden Tynan of Canon City in which he referred to the officials of Cheyenne county as the most corrupt gang in the state (or words to that effect) there has been no explanation of what Sheriff Norman did with the $20.00 he took from Zemp on the way to the penitentiary, nor why he took it away from him. That P. O. Hedlund has not made a sat isfactory explantion of his connec tions with the Zemp case, and that both Norman and Hedlund are still under suspicion before the people of this county. There is another feature of this matter that the people think aught to be explained and that is, how is it that the man sent by the court to investigate the charge brought by the attorney general against these men, went to the office of the Cheyenne County Land Company to get his information (in which company these men are officers) and that anything he may have found out by his in vestigation has been suppressed. No report of any kind has been made of what his investigation disclosed. This looks bad and the people haven’t forgotten it “Will you tell us through the columns of this, or any other paper if you took Zemp’s money with the intention of stealing it, or did you just borrow it intend ing if you were called on some time for it to pay it back. We want your explanation of this matter and your refusal will be in the eyes of the people suffic ient proof of your guilt.” Republican Voter City Council Under Suspicion. to face the consequences ?nd the tax-payers, Mayor Cain and the city council refuse to make a financial statement of the city treasury and to tell the peo ple what they have done with the money derived from the ex orbitant taxes levied by them on our citizens. Your refusal to make this state ment you swore to make when you took your oath of office, does not raise you in the estimation of the people who elected you, ex cept with that gang of political consorts who are plying the same trade in the county offices, but not near so raw. You have been under the eye of suspicion ever since your first refusal to make this statement which the law and your city qr dinance requires you to make. A man who will voluntarily permit his reputation for honesty and fair dealing, together with his integrity, to remain under a cloud in full view of his. neigh bors, citizens and his supporters, when the mere act of doing his duty as he has sworn to do it, would inform the people of the facts as they exist, is certainly guilty of something he doesn’t want to become known, and of which he is mortally afraid. PROSPECT HILL. Henry Cabbot Lodge, when lie was chairman of the republican convention in 1000 at Philadelphia, said with con siderable showing of pride, “we are the party of today, with cheerful yes terdays and confident tomorrows." That sounds pretty, but it is out of date now, and does not apply to Chi cago conventions or present condi tions. The observance of Children’s Day at Arapahoe last Sunday brought the people from a radius of many miles. It was a success. The program, as carried out by home and borrowed talent was highly entertaining and in structive. A choir of 15 voices assist ed by a large congregation, made me lodious music. Two little children were dedicated to the Lord in the or dinance of baptism. Rev. W. J. Mills supplemented the program by an ap peal to the people to give the children every chance to grow up manly and good. Many useful things were said and wholesome precept taught.

Medical aid was summoned and she is now getting along very nicely. This is Worth Reading. When the new fire-proof annex and improvements of the Albany Hotel in Denver are completed, this hotel will have a total of 360 rooms, 340 of which will be either rooms with a private bath, or rooms with a lavatory and toilet. This is practically equal to the total number of rooms with bath that all the Denver hotels could boast of one year ago. This expenditure of money and en largement of the hotel has been for the one purpose of accommodating every one who may wish rooms with private bath or rooms with private toilet, and ! upon arriving at the Albany these days, one will not have to wait for a room with a bath, but the manage ment will be able to assign persons to a room with bath or a room with a private toilet immediately upon arriv al, and in making these Improvements the Albany has tried, by the expendi ture of a large sum of money, to ar range so that those who wish to have bath accommodations for $1.50 and $2 per day, can secure the same. Over 100 of these new bath rooms which have been installed will be at a tariff of $1.50 and $2 per day, and 60 rooms with private toilet and lavatory at $1.50 per du.v, so that anyone mak ing a trip to Denver and wishing a room with bath, will not be compelled to pay the high prices charged by. Den ver hotels in the past. The furnishings which are being placed in the new house, as well as the rooms with bath in the present hotel, are the Louis XVI style, all being fin ished in neat, light enamel colorings, many provided with twin beds. eon.
