Homebody, who wants to explain what
the editorial “we” signifies, says it has
a variety of meanings, varied to suit
the circumstances. For an example:
j When you read that “we expect out
wife home to-day” (this, ol' course,
doesn’t apply to us unfortunates who
have no wile), “we” refers to the
editor-in-chief; when it is “we area
little late with our work,” it includes
the whole office force, even to the devil
and the towel; in “we are having a
boom,” the town is meant; “we re
ceived over 700,000 immigrants last
year,” and it embraces the nation; but
“we have hog cholera in our midst”
only means the man who takes the
paper and does not pay for it is very ill.

La Junta, Colo., Jan. 3, 1895.
Messrs. Hay & Walbridgo, Meeker, Colo.:
Dear Sirs— Plenee bo kind enough to give
inn your Idea about constructing a line of rail
road from Rllle to Meeker and through the
Ynmpn valley viu Craig and thence towards
Steamboat Springs. Mr. Dean and myself have
had tho matter In hand for some time, nnd
have succeeded In Interesting an eastern syn
dicate, and if we can show them It will ho a
good thing we can got money to build It at
Could you Interest some of your heading citi
zens and get them to tuke a hand and help get
the company organized? I just returned from
the east u few days ago nnd find thut eastern
capitalists uro very anxious to plnco their
money In good security In tho west.
Please give me an Idea how your people feel
on the subject, and I will try and be In Meeker
some time within the next thirty days. From
what I know of tho country I see no reason
why this road would not be a fine thing, and
think a preliminary survey could bo made and
a prospectus gotten out with a small cost.
Mr. Dcun ami myself are both practical rail
road men, and have hud long experience in
construction work, and 1 am confident wo can
get the scheme through If we cau got tho
proper assistance from tho citizens of Meeker,
Craig and Steuinboat Springs.
Could you arrange to have a meeting of your
best men at Meeker some time about the flrst
of Februury, no thut wo can talk tho plan over,
and organize a company, so that wo can make
a preliminary survey at once. Also advise
whether or not we could get the ties and
bridge timber In thut part of tho state. Please
reply soon. Yours truly, J. B. Pkaiick.
Now, wo have had several railway
projects (on paper) during the past few
years, and, while they have all ended in
talk, this may end the same way; but,
nevertheless, we believe in giv ig due
consideration to everything in that line,
and one of these days the sleepy ones
will be aroused from their slumber by
the whistle of the locomotive as it
rushes down Flag creek.
At the request of a number of citizens
a meeting of property owners and others
interested is called to assemble at the
court house on Thursday next (January
17th) at 7:30 p. in., to take some action
in conformity to Mr. Pearce’s sugges

Governor Mclntire and other state
officers were Inducted into office on
Tuesday with much pomp and cere
mony. The governor’s initial message
is a very sensible document and made
a good impression.
Frank P. Warner has succeeded 11. 13.
Swartz as editor of the ltille Reveille.
Mr. Warner is a practical printer, be
sides being a versatile writer of known
ability, and will undoubtedly make a
success of his latest undertaking.
The action of the syndicate of bank
ers which bought the recent issue of
bonds was not calculated to make
friends for tho Carlisle currency bill,
which would, if it became a law, place
the entire currency system in the hands
True to his ante-election promises,
Mr. Lowell has introduced bills in
the legislature for the construction of
bridges across White river and Snake
river. We presume the White liver
bridge will be located at Rangely where
it is badly needed.
The Durango Herald and Southwest
have consolidated and will appear here
after as tho Herald. The publishers
no doubt came to tho wise conclusion
that there was no need of publishing
two daily papers where one was all that
was necessary- Tho Herald is a good
paper and the people of Durango ought
to give It a liberal support.
J. C. Davis, “Jack,” as ho is famili
arly known to all okl timers, is in the
light for United States senator for
Wyoming, and with a chance of win
ning. If tho best wishes of a multitude
of friends could elect him, Mr. Davis
would have a walk-away.—Rifle Rev
Since the above was put in typo wo
learn, with regret, that Mr. Davis has
withdrawn from the race. This action
insures tho selection of ex-Congressman
Clark and ox-Souator Warren, and gold
bug Carey becomes a back numbor.
There is a whole lot of truth and good
sense in tho following from tho Pitts
burg Guzotto: “All this talk about a
rich man having more friends than a
poor man won’t do to depend on. We
have seen men with plenty of money
who had few friends, and men in poor
circumstances whose friends wero le
gion. If a man is tho right kind of a
man he will have friends, no mattor how
poor his condition, and if he is the
wrong kind of a man his money will not
draw to him manv sincere friends.
