Chairman 4 ’ounty Central Committee. liepublican primaries to day. Reef cattle are fetching pretty stifi prices in Chicago these days. Monda; being a legal holiday school will not open until Tuesday morning. Cool nights and moderately warm days are repotted by the local weather pro pbet. Among the numerous guests at the Miller House this week was Mr. S. C. Madden, who represents the DuPont i Powder company in Denver. Fay drove the Craig stage out Thors- i day morning, pulling the lines over six j ho. v-r. lie had eleven passengers! aboard. Fay i-. the king of drivers it. these parts. Tile Heraep erred last week in, naming .September 1st a:-. Labor day. The workingmen's holiday cornes on i the fir-:* Monday in September—the 3d j of the month this year. Itev. Ostenson went up to lluford dur ing the week to scatter the seed of the gospel iii that neighborhood, hut will be back in time to hold services in St. James church to morrow evening. District court will not convene until the 2.1th of this month. 'The postpone inent was marie, we understand, in order to keep from coming in conflict with the dates set for holding the various con-j ventions. After a few weeks' sojourn in Denver and other points east of tbe main range. Mr. W. II. Welch returned to the city j in the early part of the week, and can | now be found at his desk in the Watson j store. On Wednesday W. H. J aylor arrived i in town and summoned Dr. Bruner to j Axial to see Mrs. Edward Collorn. who is very seriously ill. '\ he doctor returned Thursday and reports her in a very j critical condition. The stage schedule was changed this j week and wiii now leave Rifle early in the morning instead of waiting for the incoming train. Mr. Harp says he is sorry he can’t accommodate everybody j in this matter, but will try to do the best he can. ♦♦♦. _ On Tuesday, in the county court, Mrs. Floors Kwarts got a divorce from S. < rSwartfl of Rangely. Mr. tt warts made no defense and all went home happy. Judge Wildhack was assisted in break ing tbe enthralling chain by a jury of three, consisting of Messrs. Ball. Moot/ and A1 Martin. The cow nuisance Is epidemic again. J? is almost too late this year to institute stringent measures for the suppression of this growing nuisance, but if it is al lowed to continue next year as it has this, people who are trying to beautify their premises and the town will have to give up the struggle. The remains of John Gebhardt, who was shot at Rifle on the evening of the '23d ult., arrived in Meeker on Saturday last before noon, and were taken to the Odd Fellows' hull. The time for the funeral was set at 1 o'clock, and at that hour Valentine i-odge. No. 41. I. O. U Jr\, in a body escorted the casket to St. j James church where Rev. O. E. Osten • sou conducted the services according to . the EpiscfipaJian usage. The church I v | rites being concluded, the remains ; were transferred to the burial ground ! by a conveyance, the dead man's broth ers of the lodge room leading the van. At the grave the ceremonial of the • order was rendered, the ltev. Ostenson. | chaplain, being assisted by Noble : Grand H. A. Wildhack. The floral j tributes were numerous, and the scenes , at the church and at the grave were | very impressive. | Since our last issue the following par ticular3 concerning Johnny Gebliardfs ; sadden taking of! are olitamed : The name of the slaver i~ Robert Kovcraft. ; i»ut he is better known as “English ! Bob." It Is alleged that Gebhard-. laid j for Boy craft, jumped upon him and in ttie struggle the latter used a 3*>-caliher revolver with the result knowu. An : inquest was held Friday morning, and the coroner’s jury rendered a verdict that the killing was justifiable. Not withstanding the verdict, private ad 1 vices would indicate that the killing was felonious, it being .-:aid that the I jury 1 with possibly one exception, were friend.- of Roycraft. However, an in vestigation is on foot, and it is no more than justice to both the living and dead j that the true facts are known. Meeker ha- got a number of small l/ovs who will soon l/e classed under the heading “bad.* if their parents, guard ians or the law doesn’t soon take them in hand. During the summer vacation nearly all the lights in the windows of tiie second story of the school house have | been broken. Such wanton destruction of property must be stopped or a few : of our mischievously inclined “kids’’ will have to go to the reform school. .S C. Ferry, a member of the l>oard of county commissioners of Cheyenne | county. Colo., came in Monday to look lover this country in the interest of a i colony of **rain-belt’‘ settlers who are hunting a new location. Mr. Ferry took his departure very much pleased with what he saw of the White River valley and it is possible his visit will be the means of bringing in a number of new ; settlers. A hunting party arrived in Meeker the other day bound for California I Fark. They must have got an irnpres j sion somewhere that this was a j>oor j place to get provisions, as they imported everything in thai line—even to potatoes Gentlemen, you can get anything you wish here—either in provisions or out fitter's supplies.
