From present indications Leadviile will soon be re-enacting the scenes of ’79 and ’BO over again. Some recent big gold strikes are causing the stir. The report of the state board of pardons, just published, shows that of 175 applicants for pardon 70 were rec ommended for pardon, 11 for commuta tion, 5 for transfer to the reformatory, 4 referred to the penitentiary commis sioners, 1 to the board of control and 84 were refused. From these figures it will be seen that the pardoning power was used with lavish liberality by the Waite administration, but turning criminals loose by the wholesale was probably one way the Populists had of “reforming” Colorado. The Inter Mountain stands first, last and always for our town. We believe in Steamboat Springs for what she is and what she is bound to be. We had rather see the county seat located here than at any other point in tho county. But we frankly confess what everyone else is bound to acknowledge, that the county seat is better located at Hayden than at Hahn’s Peak. We go farther and say that since Hayden has put up the money and got a decision from the courts removing tho couniy seat from the inaccessible and out of the way place where it is, she is better entitled to it than any other towu in the county. Yes, and we will go one step farther and say that there is not a point on the river that is more accessible and con venient to all citizens of the county than Hayden. Steamboat Springs Inter Mountain. Not Living up to Professions. Last Saturday Judge Rucker dis solved the New Castle bridge injunc tion case. The Herald is sorry for this as it is a case wherein capital and monopoly has won a victory over the people and forced an expensive road and bridge upon the overwhelmed tax payers of the county, which they are not able to bear. Glen wood Spriugs Herald (Populist). We are not at all familiar with the case referred to above, but our Glen wood contemporary’s criticisms re minds us of the fact that Senator Stewart of Nevada, the leading Popu list of the West, is the recognized de fender of the Southern Pacific Railroad company in the United States senate. This grasping corporation is known from one end of the land to the other as the worst form of monopoly in ex istence, but this knowledge does not prevent the Populist senator from Nevada from appearing in congress as its attorney. Seems to us that the Popu lists’ are not very successful as monop oly crushers. Evidently they don’t get the right kind of a hold on the mon ster; or, perhaps they depend too much on their mouths as offensive weapons. PITHY PARAGRAPHS. Financial ignorance is a marked feature of the present House. t+t It seems only necessary tho show that a bill is unpopular to get it passed by the house. t+t No one lias yet objected to Mr. Hol man writing a book after ho retires from congress. t+t There is little danger that tho new fad, kissing by telephone, will ever suc ceed the old way. t+t After all ex-President Harrison may conclude that being secretary of stato is more to his taste. t+t It appears that there are senators who think there is still money to ho made by a vigorous agltatiou of the sugar ques tion. t+t The Goulds never succeeded in get ting into the 100 of Gotham until they made the trip via the Prince of Wales route. t+t It’s dollars to toothpicks that Senator Hill’s Christmas stocking contained nothing from President Cleveland’s game bag. Great Scott! A Richmond editor thinks he sees presidential possibilities in Secretary Morton. What eyes he must have. t+t Senator Sherman’s war on sleeping car companies appears to be like the anti-trust law which bears his name inoperative. t+f There is a growing disposition on the part of those who seek free advertising to muke a pilgrimage —on u pass—to Indianapolis. Why is it that some men tell the un varnished truth without accompanying it with a statement that it is not in tended for publication. t+t The Tillmauites in the South Carolina legislature set a precedent that is not likely to be extensively followed, when they reduced their own salaries, t+t Superstitious people are wondering whether the owls at Washington, which have become numerous since congress met, carried any wisdom to that hotly, t+t Perhaps if the administration were less anxious to force the currency bill through congress the withdrawals of gold from the treasury would be lighter, t+t Gen. Cassius M. Clay may be feeble in body, but his intellect is all light. Few men could have said as much in so small a space as he did in that letter to the public. t+t The cares of the presidency did not prevent General Harrison trying to get elected the second time, nor will they prevent his accepting the nomination again, if it be offered to him. t+t It is a bad law that will not apply to all. Now that Judge Woods has sen tenced Eugene Debs to six months im prisonment under the Sherman anti trust law, that law might be tried on the trusts, for which it was supposed to have been made. t+t Ex-Congressman Warner, president of the Bimetallic League, struck the bull’s eye, when he told the house com mittee on banking and currency, that if it were profitable to the banks to issue the proposed currency, they would do it; if it were not made profitable, they would not do it. Current Topics in the Schools. The suggestion that every teacher, whether in city, village or district school, should strive to interest his pu pils iu the study of current topics, is an excellent one. Tho primary object of school instruction is not merely to carry the pupils through so many text-books on so many different subjects, but so to guide their growing minds as to develop the best manhood and womanhood. To accomplish these results, the teacher must go outside the text-books, must put life into his teaching, aud must con nect the school work with the life and thought of the ""day, especially the broader thought of tho great outside world as yet but little known to tho pu pils in the schools. The first requisite for the successful study of current top ics in the schools is a teacher who is himself in sympathy aud iu contact with the best thought of the day. The next requisite is a journal that can be used as a text-book ; one that will furnish the necessary record of events and comment thereon, with a good range and variety of reading. With such a journal, tho teacher can make the study of current topics of great benefit, not only to the scholars but to himself. A weekly journul that fhirly presents all sides of every important public question, and that admirably meets tho requirements for the study of current topics in tho schools, is Public Opinion, published at Washington, D. U., at $2.60 per year. A contribution of ten cents apiece from twenty-live pupils will pay for Public Opiuion for one year, or five cents apiece will pay it for six months. The weekly issues can bo used as text-books in the reading classes, and if preserved and bound they make a valuable addi tion to or nucleus for a Bchool library. Send for specimen copy. An exchange tells of a boy who grow up to manhood without seeing a woman. But in the course of events he saw one of the angelic creatures. “What Is that, father?” asked the young man. “That, ray son, is a woman,” replied the father, and the next words the young mau uttered were: “Father, I waut oue of them things.” There are several ways to run a news paper, but tho best Way is told iu the following: A Wyoming editor once in vited correspondence as to the best way to conduct his paper, and tho man who hit the null squarely ou the head replied anonymously, on a postal card: “llun it as you d d please.” Stationery Proposals.
