J. W. STALEY, Cwhier ■ ) The Cheyenne County State Bank WE 1)0 A GEN ERA I, BANKING AND COLLECTING BUSINESS. Williams Rough-Shods a Falsifier. The Btory that John Forker has been circulating over the county about roe. in regard to my con duct at Wild Horse on the 4th day of July, is not true, and John Forker is a malicious liar and the truth is not in him. This will be no surprise to John, as I have al ready apprised him of the fact I take this method of publicly denouncing the lie that has been circulated for the sole purpose of injuring me in my race for the office of sheriff o f Cheyenne county.

Quite a large crowd -out, and everyone had a good time. Oak Hill Mines. The special editorial train on the Moffat road stopped five minutes at the Oak Hill mines on the way home. During that stop the following de scription of the mines was y-ead in each car: The Oak Hill mine of the Moffat Coal Co., is tlie oldest mine in the Oak Creek district, although development work commenced less than 4 years ago. This property has the finest equipment of any coal mine in Colora do, over $250,000 having been spent on machinery and buildings above ground alone, not mentioning spent in the mine itself for electric drills, elec tric hoists, etc. The main hoist is the largest in the state, exceeding in size and capacity anything in the Cripple Creek district. The daily capacity of this mine is 5,000 tons, although on account of the limited facilities of the Moffat road, little over 1,000 tons have ever yet been shipped from the property in a single day. As in the case of each of the other mines in the district, there are 7 veins of coal here, varying in thickness from 9to 14 feet each. Min ing engineers estimate that each of the five mines already opened can produce Rooms with Bath $1.50 and $2 a Day Albany Hotel This is something new for a Denver Hotel. Larger rooms with bath $2.50 and $3 00 per day. Try one of these moderate priced rooms with bath and you will J)e pleased. -s*• 4** 4** JM- New Fire Proof Annex; Every Room With Batb; Completed July i, 1912 double their present output each day for the next 500 years, and still not exhaust the coal that can be economi cally mined. Nine-tenths of the coal area tributa ry to the town of Oak.Creek has not yet been touched, but the cash payroll already runs from (60,000 to (90,000 per month, and each succeeding’ month shows a fifty per cent increase over the corresponding month of the previ ous year.

I The writer and wife were at First View on Wednesday to visit a new grandson that made his advent on - July 20th. We hope that the name James Jenkins Calvert with which they j have started him out, will be no hind ranee. The father and mother, with | two fine boys, ought to make things go in the west The number of candidates offering increase as the days unfold. Surely from such a list of aspiring citizens a ticket which the people can endorse ought to evolve. To be worthy and well qualified are dual qualities to consider, and the one having these ought not to be turned down. Look well to true worth as well as to rota tion in office, and equal rights to all. The anti-saloon league lecture Sun day night by the prominent Oklahoma City attorney had many salient feat- | ures and solid facts. The people of the town were not out enmasse, but the court room was more than half full of good listeners. The way to manage the liquor traffic was well taken—not to foster it, but to fight it to the bitter end and end it, to save our youths and native land. You should have been there to have learned how to fight the arch enemy. Where there is an enemy, there is no peace. If our community needs anything, it needs peace and good will. I FIRST VIEW NEWS.
