The Primaries. l’lireuant to call the Republicans and Democrats met at the court house hall on Thursday evening to nominate can didates for municipal honors. NV. 11. Claik called the meeting to order, and after stating its object A. Burnham was selected chairman and David Smith secretary. Owing to some of the incongruities of tho new election law a discussion was had over placing a ticket in the field under the head of Citizen's Ticket, ;or otherwise. It was finally agreed that the honors he divided, but that each party have a ticket in the field, so as to keep up party organization on both sides. The uieetiyg then adjourned. The Democracy crowded pell-mell into the clerk and recorder’s offices to make their selections, while the few remain ing organized themselves as the Repub lican party. The Democrats first selected F. N. Jollantgcn as temporary chairman and L. B. Walbridge as temporary secre- j tarv. Committees on credentials, or ganization and resolutions were ap pointed, and, after reporting, the tem porary organization was made perina-1 nent. The selection of candidates for trustees was then taken up. and Messrs. R. llartke and W. 11., Welch were unanimously chosen to lead the hosts to victory. Three cheers and a tiger were 1 given Cleveland and Reform amid the waving of handkerchiefs by ladies in the gallery. In the meantime the Republicans •wero not idle. After rustling up a quorum they began by making the officers of the citizens* caucus their per manent officers. A. C. Moulton was selected as their candidate for mayor, and B. L. Nichols for trustee. A point in parli inentary ethics was then 1 sprung, and had not the Democrats just ! at this juncture made their appearance ] there is no telling where the matter would have ended. They wero assisted out of their quandry and shortly after adjourned. Tiib ll i:i:ali> has this week received : a copy of the bill introduced by Mr. ! Lowell in regard to reimbursing county ■ treasurers in this state who have- paid out money pursuant to an act entitled; “An act to provide for the destruction j of wolves, coyotes, bears and mountain i lions, and provide a premium therefor," j approved April 18, 1889, and who have not received payment thereof, by reason i of the said act having been declared uncoustutionul by the supreme court of • this stale, and the consequent refusal of the stale treasurer to credit said | county treasurers respectively with the J amounts paid by them. This bill lias already passed the houso and will 1 doubtless become a law. Four Mile is about ready for the rush, says the Uawlius .Journal. Frank A. Ilinmnn, who has hud three men busy all winter getting pipes ready to turn] water on the Rock Springs company’s . diggings, has just completed about3,soo : feet of iron pipe, and has the flume lum-, her all on the ground ready to com mence operations us soon us the frost! leaves the ground, which ho expects will be about the 20th of this month. County Commissioner Calvert, in from Baggsthis week, says there are thous ands of acres of good pay dirt not yet located, and that no prospector need fear coming too late to get a slice of good ground. There is plenty for all. The New York World had a corps of reporters at work the other day toascer uin. if possible, how the new senate stood on the three leading questions of the day, and tlie following is a sum mary of their labors: For the repeal of the Sherman silver purchasing act, 80; against, 28; non-committal, 16. For the repeal of the McKinley law. 41; against, 33; non-committal, 0. For the annexa tion of Hawaii, 40; against, 20; non committal, 23. Of tho 88 senators only 5 were absent. Washington Notes. Democratic enthusiasm cannot he washed out, snowed out, hlowed out or froze out. The north wind blew, the snow fell and there were icicles hang ing from the trees, houses, and the whiskers of men, but those little annoy ances did not count when it came to inaugurating a Democratic president. Mr. Cleveland proved his indifference to them by declining to deliver his in augural address in the senate chamber, instead of from the open-air platform on the east front of the Capitol, before which, standing in the snow storm, were about 10,000 people. lie thought, and correctly, too. that if these people were good enough Democrats to brave the storm to see him—few of them could get near enough to hear him—de liver his inaugural address and take the oath of office, he was good enough Dem ocrat to take ofT his hat, storm or no storm, and do it, and he did. There isn't money enough in existence to buy from the president the worn Bible upon which ho took the oath of office in 1885, and upon which Chief Justice Fuller administered to him tho same oatli Saturday. It is more valuable | than gold or precious stones; it was his ! mother’s, and Mr. Cleveland has never ; forgotten the commandment, “Honor i thy father and mother” etc. Not since the second inauguration of Grant has there been such a disagree j able inauguration day, but tho only i noticeable effect the weather had was j to keep a few men whose health was 1 not robust out of the parade, which was over three hours long as it was, to dis figure and disarrange the house decora tions and to postpone the fireworks. Everything else went off according to program, just as would have been done had the dav been as clear and balmy as . that on which Mr. Cleveland was first i | inaugurated. On the reviewing stand with the president and vice-president were a large number of prominent ladies and gentlemen, among them Mrs. Cleveland and Mrs. Stevenson. It is difllicult to say which of the Democratic governors in the procession received the grandest ovations along the line of inarch, but Feck, of Wisconsin, 1 Flower, of New York, and Russell, of! Massachusetts, have got reasons to put’ the day down among the proudest of their lives. It is generally conceded that tho in augural ball was the most successful, from every point of view ever held, and that the decorations ot the ball room were handsomer and more artistic than had ever been seen here Tho members of the committee in charge started out to make this inauguration a memorable one in every respect,and they succeeded. It was a great dav for Grover Cleveland, a greater one for thesOemocratic party, and greatest of all for the country, bo j ginning, as it did. an cm of real, slraon | pure Democratic government, not ti» u i pinchbeck kind the Republicans have been giving !•••»■ President Cleveland's inaugural ad ! dress w;*s a model of its kind. A plain, honest, straightforward statement of his intention t > faithfully carry out i Lite platform upon which he was notni -1 nated and elected, and particularly no ticeable was the complete ignoring of Hit; Hawaiian annexation scheme. It is evident, and paricularly gratifying to Democrats, that Mr. Cleveland in tends to investigate that subject more thoroughly than Mr. Harrison did be fore committing himself, and as lie put himself, in his address, squarely on record as opposed to subsidies and bounties of all kinds, it is certain that if Hawaii gets annexed its sugar plan- I tors will get no bounty on their sugar. Tho vice-president, in his address, upon assuming the chair of the senate 'at the opening of its extra session, i made an excellent impression on the I sentors as well as on the public. II is I popularity with the rank and lilt) of the | | Democratic party is unbounded and j what is more to the point it is all de- j j served. He is made of the right sort of stuff. A newspaper man was tell-| | ing him that he supposed the dignity < of his new office would prevent a re- • j sumption of the free and easy methods | ; in vogue in his office, when he was first j I assistant postmaster general, and “the ! boys” were always welcome. Mr. Ste-1 venson laughed and said “my new office ! ! will make no difference. You boys will i ! bo just ns welcome as in the old days. | There will be no sentry standing in front of the vice-president’s room. You I wiU not be forced to dive into your j j pockets and fish out a card to be trans- j mitted to me on a silver salver. The i O'.'.r will a(.,i,,1 wi.'o Tliuru •.»»•#» | sofas inside for you to occupy. You will walk right in. and If I am not there you will send for me. Wherever I am the newspaper man is welcome. I am tho vice-president of the people, and ' the people are iMiytled to know what I I | atn doing. There will he no red tape | about the office." • ' Brother Wanamaker is an expert on I j the value of advertising. He signal-j ized tils retirement from public life bv sending— of course at government ex- j pense—a letter to every postmaster and railway mail clerk in tho country. I Tills letter administers taffy in such big chunks that its receivers cannot fail to read between the lines—“l am again in business at the old stand. Bargains in every department.” President Cleveland has not commit- | ted himself on the Hawaiian question. | This statement is made upon high and i unquestionable authority. The Harri son annexation treaty was withdraw n : from the senate because it was object • ionable for several reasons. - It was i carelessly drawn, and seine of Its most I important features were entirely too j indefinite to be satisfactory, even if i Mr. Cleveland had fully made up his mind, which he hasn't, in favor of an nexation. What Mr. Cleveland desires is information, and that he is now dili gently '’"seeking, through Secretary Gresham, and General Schofield and Admiral Brown, both of whom are fa miliar from personal observation with Hawaii and its population. It is prob able that a presidential message on this subject will be sent to the senate before that body adjourns, and it is also prob able that it will be accompanied by a new treaty, may lie of annexation and may bo for the establishment of a pro tectorate. But Whatever is done the sugar planters of Hawaii will not be allowed to cash in their expectations. While the determination of President Cleveland not to re-appoint those who held office under his first administra tion lias boon disappointing to individ uals, some of whom had by hard work in the campaign earned the right to ex pect office, there is no doubt about the popularity of the move with the rank and file of the party, the men who have campaign after campaign fought for a losing cause, many of whom are now for the first time applicants for office. They feel that it gives them a better chance at tho loaves and -fishes, and that it is but the carrying out of the old Democratic idea of opposition to the I establishment of a permanent office holding class. It shows too, that the; lesson of the decay of the once power ful Republican party has not been lost J on Mr. Cleveland. Secretary Carlisle finds tho financial 1 outlook much more cheerful and en couraging. although not yet satisfac tory, than when ho first took charge of the national finances. There has been a let up In the demand for gold, and ho hopes to escape having to choose be tween using a part of the $100,000,000, gold reserve fund or an issue of bonds. At present the free gold is accumulat i ing quite rapidly in the treasury. j Unjust Criticism. Tho Denver Sun casts odium upon our representative in the legislature, Mr. John W. LoWell, by saying that ho is busy looking after the interests of tho corporations, and it threatens that Mr. Lowell's bridge bills for Routt and Rio Blanco counties will he defeated unless ho supports the Wick's railroad bill. It seems that the Sun is not aware of the fact that Mr. Lowell represents two counties that haven’t a mile of railroad willdn their boundaries, and for him to assist in radical railroad legislation would be a betrayal of confidence re posed in him by his constituents to a unit. He lias not lobietl against such a law nor taken any part in it whatever, but voted against it as any one familiar with our situation would do every time it came up. The Herald voices the sentiments of lioutt and Rio Blanco when it reiterates the statement, “Let such legislation alone., at least until we can secure railroads for our section.’ rru® Maul- 4 , r f;|ri. It is said tiiat Philadelphia has a maiden who is so modest that she will not go to bed while the Christian Ob server is on the table, also that there is a bashful Bostoli belle who declines to walk up a hill because it makes her breath come in short pants. But they are both outdone by tho Cheyenne girl who wears glasses because she doesn’t like to look at things with the naked eye.—Ex. The above may seem strange to those who are unfamiliar with the idiosycra cies which are prevalent among so ciety’s fair jewels, hut t«» one cognizant of the ideas and whims which predomi nate in the femcnine make-up, the item is not surprising in the least. Take, for instance, the average Meeker girl who, while she is in a primitive statu ol : civilization, and, figuratively speak ing, has a cloven hoof and chews a cud, J she will strenuously object to walking j past a pile of undressed lumber. That they are foolish about tho head and liable to shy at any turn of the road, wo positively assert without fear of con tradiction, vet, under no consideration will they walk through a .potato field, because the potatoes have eyes, you see. While they lack the ratiocination possessed by the goose, and are dwarfs in intellect compared with a cow, they will hie themselves to tho sanctity of their own private room and close the window blinds before changing their mind. Such is the average Meeker girl. But the practical, sensible, nuaverage i gills of Meeker (who are decidedly in the majority) are a model of meekness and innocence as well ns “a thing ol beauty and a joy forever.” They arc, not only an honor amt an ornament to tho noblest work of God, but they arc mu one uiigiik uuais in mu Uwc«t or mankind's existence. He'll Never be Missed. On Tuesday morning the Rifle stage took out a passenger who lias gone to seek pastures clothed with more verdure than those in this vicinity, lie came to the White river valley long before the Utes left, and has been in our | midst over since. Falling heir to a wad of money lie started in business, but 1 discovered that he missed his calling after his funds gave out. Being one of those helpless creatures who never dis cern anything beyond their olfactory j organ, he consequently went without a square meal more than once. Time and i time again, out of pity, was he given a j helping hand, but he invariublv snioh tho hand that fed him. As he was as innocent as they make them, lie tackled anything that came along—carpenter- 1 ing, painting, type-setting, coyv punch-1 ing, horse wrangling, cooking. Ilunkey ing, etc. —but bis jobs never lasted very protractedly. He even went so far as to write for the magazines, but liis MS. | | yvould always be returned. A few] years ngo lie was elected justice of the peace as a joke on the people, but after a brief term, during yvhicli liis actions were the laughing stock of two grand juries, lie yvas relegated to private lift*. As they say in the classics, he struck his calling when lie got to herding sheep, and he held this job for a long time. Lately during spare moments he wrote up a novel, founding it on the sheep-cattle controversy, and it is said that the ostensible object of his depart ure is to take it personally to some new publishing house to have it published in book form. As The Herald never had any hard feelings against the harm less fellow, it wishes him all the success attainable. How’s This, Perry? A report is in circulation to the effect that Miss Adell Fariss, of Steamboat Springs, and Perry Spurlock, of Meeker, were married some time ago.—Pilot. A Generous Deed. Colonel Jerome B.
