T» Ibr* Rrlllor of the 11.-raM
In recent issues or Tub Hf.iiai.i* I
nee that you ailvocate the protection of 1
game in Western Colorado. I. for one. i
am heartily in favor of such step* being ‘
taken as will protect them thoroughly.
Hut I differ with you in one or two im
portant |iarticulars.
First—lt Is not the meat actually con* 1
sutnrd in the State why. is decimating
the game.
rfecond—Hv combining we ran stop
white hunters wantonly killing with
the laws we have.
Third—l believe the game in a coun
try In* longs t» the ptsiple w ho reside end
pay taies in that country, and that they j
should hr at liberty to kill at any and I
all limes for lexor consumption.
Fourth—That “Foot U." that mush*
ahiiMsl (?) Individual, lias killed and
crippled more game in Routt and Gar*
Held counties slope within the last two
niuiitlis then all tlie white hunters In
Colorado.
Tlie deer and elk spend tlie summer
montlia In the mountains, and tlie Win
ter lu the valleys Iwtwrru lien* and !
the Ctah line. The Indiana meet them J
when they cm-a llvwr river end when I
they croaa Urn bowmanl llowd be
tween the llewr and White, and kill as '
king as they are on the move, crippling
more than they kill outright, Tlien
I they |Hill up and follow tliem to iheir
I winter range where they continue kill*
i lug all winter, saving and eating only
(the loins ami leaving the carcass for 1
their relatives—the coyotes. I have
well Indians with seven or right hides
! lied on their saddle* and not a pound of
meat. I liear some one say. "Arrest
them.” Ilow many men can you flml
who would In* willing to undertake it ?
Tlie game laws as regnnls the Indians
are dead letters; they cannot Iwenforced.
In my opinion tlie only feaaahle plan Is.
to form protective associations In our
respective counties, and work together
in this matter, and end* avot to have
laws pasaed to prohibit:
First—Tlie killing of buffalo for the
period of ten years.
Second—Tlie killing of elk for live
years, for market.
As the law stands It protect*—the
Indian, not the game; for of every ten
deer that go down in the fall only one
will return In the spring. The case is
desperate ami only |iy the combined ef
fort* of the settlers of the two counties,
can the Indians In? stnp|N*d from killing
for the hides alone. Tltose who reside
In the mountains will prolmblv say to
this "llnsli!” My fiieml. sotnn spring
morning you will hw»k In vain for the
noble black tail. You will then regret
that you did not take steps In time to
save his hide from the filthy |*aw of tlie
Ute. I say. Mr. Kditor. keep the tall
rolling. The subject will taar agitation
and consideration ns well. We Invite
the latter and can prove all we assert.
Tlie killing done by the whites is most- i
lv done in the fall. Nootie is killing here
now. as there is no need of it. Hut If
we cannot stop the l ies from killing
for the hides, give the white man an
even start and in two years the game
and the Indian, too. will In* things of the
past Just as the bufTnlo and the plains
Indians have become, ft. W. Stomk.

Henry Clay's favorite recreation for
many.years was a game of whist, to
which at one time he was passionately
attached, not for tlie slake, hut for the
distraction ami excitement of the game.
Mr. Wlnthrop aay s that there is h tra
dition that while Clay was visiting lk»s
ton. 1818. ami lodging at the old Ex
change Coffee House in Congress street,
a servant rushed into the parlor in
which lie was at the whist table with a
lew gentlemen of the old school, and |
announced that the hotel was on lire, j
"Oh. there wMI be time enough. I
think.” said flay, philosophically, "to
play our hands out.” which they did
before the hotel was burned to the «
ground. A similar tradition was cur
rent In Washington at a latar period.
MEEKER, COLO., SATURDAY, DECEMBER If*
j While Mr. Clay was K|**aker he and Mi
friends had itassed a whole night M
1 cards, and were still going ou with tbAV
games when the hour was clone at hood
for the o|N*tilug of the morning seaAOB
.of Congress. " Wait a few mtuiltM»
1 gentlemen,” said Mr. Clay, "and I will
wash my face and hands and ruu doiß
to the House and call Joliu Taylor ID
the chair, and then 1 will come bwdt
and we will have another rubber."
A Serious Less.
Dr. Douglas, the |>liyaiciati who sttonA

i thieves to be at tlie bottom of il. BE
i had made arrangement* to spend UN

the time to writing the medical history
. of Grant’* last illness. All of the daU,
extensive memoranda, and many of EM
; surgical instruments used InthsoMy*
’ were !n a leather satchel. This satchel
was placed on a cab. and Dr. Douglas
started out with his wife to visit his
{children iu Hast Seventeenth street be*
> fore going to ttie train. After bidding
them goud-byo he went lo the ferry
As tie shipped tlie cabman got off and
tapped at the window. "What is 11?”
asked Dr. Douglas. •The black bag Is
gone,” said tlie cabman. If the adjoin
ing buildings liml fallen in upon him
Dr. Imug la* could not have been more
shocked. Here, within a moment, the
I work of months was swept awav. ami >
with It all the matcrtal which might
, make it* repriMlurtiou |MRMObIe. It l*
iin|»•Millie tosav whether the bag wa*

1 Although a reward waa offered the bag
has not yet been returned. "If I don't

‘ I teeter. "I can never hope U» replace tt.
Neither Dr. Darker nor Dr. Shrady
, kept such complete memoranda, and
: unless the lutg is found, the medical his- i

never be written.”

Whipped Into an Idiot.
A most shocking case of cruelty Is
Just reported from Kenton. Delaware.

one of the troy's eyes was entirely ,
kuockcil out. Ids check laid open, his ,
scalp torn open tn many places and Ids ,

an Idiot Such is the relinement of Del- ,
awate Justice that the whipping t»i*l
