It la tbe only rival of Cripple Creek in the weet, and while ltt ore bodies are different in character from thoee of Cripple Creek, the ore area ie so extensive in dimen sion that tbe foture of the camp ie not problematical but awn red.

To reach this camp, take the Rio Grande West ern railwar to Salt Lake City.

The Colorado and Otkal ll *- ern Delegations Walk 01 i Awrtd Dramatic Bcewl. i The pres* dispatched from St.; la , in last night’s Leadviile Herald t > \ crat tersely summarizes the dota|jK*f t the Bt. Louis convention In c paragraph aa followa: ' .tm “The Republican national MR j nnHadttw pt lafflplca'to the ]!, dmr (TiiutfflUdy) and placed in oofltefd j of tbe ship which is to bear them Mto j 8 fortune or diaaster in November, oar 8 popular idol, William McKinley! of • Ohio, and Garrett A. Hobart, of iv 1 Jersey. But there was mutiny abort!, 1 and at tbe last moment before tbe Ikes were cast off, some of tbe memberjof the crew who bad shipped in maty a voyage, refused to subscribe to the »w shipping articles and walked down lie gangplank.” 1 Among those who walked out with Senator Teller and tbe Colorado doe gates were the Idaho and Nevada dele gattons. Senator Cannou, Messrs. Alan and Kearns of Utah, Congressman Hartman of Montana, Senator grew of South Dakota, and others. j For the •‘Soundest Money,** ' The Louisiana Democracy, in state convention at Baton Rouge, last Tues day, adopted the following money plank : “Resolved, That we are in favor of the soundest and best money the in genuity of man can invent, and that money to consist of both gold and silver, with equal rights of coinage and equal legal tender power, on a basis of sixteen ounces of silver to one of gold. Dele gates from this convention to Chicago in Ac national tbe free and unlimited coinage of allver at tbe same ratio, with full legal tender power and witfiout reference to the ac tion of other nationa, and to support tbe candidacy before said convention of aucb men only as are in full sympathy with said plank, and in order that our views may be more effectually enforced, aaid delegates are hereby instructed to vote aa a unit.” A state convention of the National Silver Party will be held In Denver next Thursday for the pnrpoee of electing delegates to attend the St. Louie Stive, convention, which will be held on Jul, 22d. Bio Blanco county eympathizei with this movement in support of thi Dollar of the Daddies, but as most oi us are -long” on patriotism and -short' on tbe alleged "SOo-dollar” (as tbe gold bugs call it), it is not likely this county will be represented at tbe Denver con ventlon. A report comes from New York that i the money power baring gotten all it ! wanted at St. Louis will ignore the ' Übleago convention and apply all its ’ energies (and tss2 ** •) to the Me- Kinley-goldbog causa. In other words, i Wall street will not divide Its strength - in tbe approaching national contest 1 All of which shows thst tbe gold bug li no “tumble-bug” when it comes to look ing after his own interests. Governor Altgeld may be a crank, hot he was striking around tbe bull's eye of truth when be said: “A little less Wall street and n little mors patriotism will work woodara In this country. _ The London Times accepts and ap proves the Republican money plank as adopted at St. Loots. We are glad to bear that this part of the G. O. P. plat form suits oar English friends. Mark Antony may have been a big man among the Homans, bat Mark Hanna appears to be the biggest Bepub Ucan of ’em all. Now for a Free Silver Platform and • Free Silver candidate at Chicago— and Tietory. I The young Duchess of Marlborough appears to have mads a hit by not adopting tha usual brass-band, Ameri can style of making her debut In Lou don society. Her father waa noted for his still-hunt method,; also, for getting ehat he wanted. He got about every thing be started after, except the good will of the people. President Cleveland baa a great op pertuoity to get aofid with the woman •uffragiati. Secretary Morton lays bis sister ia in every respect bis superior, and can do everything be does better than be can. Now let Miss Morton sue- 1 ceed her brother as secretary of agri culture. Even m mild a mannered manj&s.M*i uiaasujutj says: "in opTnKffr tne Turkish government Is the greatest scourge of mankind.” Yet Mr. Glad stone knows, in common with all intelli- J pent men, that the Turkish government exists only by the will of the British govern men t. The doctor who declared laziness to be a disease can find defenders in every neighborhood. Nature, however, fur nishes a sure cure for this disease hunger, but good natured people are constantly preventing its being given to the patieut. Colonel Heuri Watterson is glad he went to Europe. As a goldbug Demo crat he can find much more pleasure in looking at the bicycle costumes of the Parisian girls—of courso he doesn’t look at the girls—than in the Kentucky situa tion. l’erhaps if Governor McKinley didn’t have such a cinch on it. President Cleve land might go in for the St. Louis nomi nation, now that the Silver Democrats have knocked him out of the calcula tions at Chicago. The people of Washington are to be congratulated. Just as they get rid of congress the United States Marine band begins its semi-weekly open-air con- Garbk ~ . EX-SenaCAr ‘ihjffn u going to de scribe tbe St. Louis convention for a New York paper. If he writes what he thinks ’twill be mighty interesting mat ter. Tbe adjournment of congress without further action on the Cuban question is strong evidence that its concurrent reso -1 lution waa merely a bluff for effect. The progress of Japan will not worry us so long as she lets us build some of her war ships and her railroads and machinery, as she is now doing. ’ The average constituency will for ' give much in a congressman if he only > succeeds in pulling down a fat appro > priatlon or two for his district. | ««4 A Washington tailor makes tbe dif . ference between “trousers” and “pants” , $2; he charges customers who ask for . the former that much more. Tbe session of congress just closed t demonstrated the insignificance of not t a few men whose constituents thought e them great. 8 * Joe Blackburn may never get re-eiec | ted to the senate, but if there be any ' satisfaction in “getting even” it must be bis. 1 President Cleveland isn’t tbe first • men who sought consolation for disap pointments by going a-flshing. of being Kentucky’s “favor ~ its eon,” Secretary Carlisle seems to be 9 her disinherited son. B f 6 s It is good 16 to 1 shot that Cleveland win not be tbe name of tbe man nomi nated at Chicago. s Speaker Reed could talk very interest > ingly on tbe ingratitude of politicians, * if be would. Tbe people did not expect much from r congress and they were not disappointed. Many “sound money” Democrats are disppMi to blame It all on Cleveland. , I have spent my life In seeing people die, net of their ailments, but of that ' greet end Incurable disease, tbe went of money.—-Baliac. zz: HU g~.’,d. nt -! the pioneers J.
