MIIKIR, - OODORA DO. People who here no malice in their makeup, are seldom amusing. Wisdom Is In the main a correct ap preciation o t the follies of other people. It was a Central American shot that knocked the hole in the Nicaragua Ca nal bill. Most of us would last longer if we possessed the power of keeping still oc casionally. There Is really slight consolation about advancing theories to account for your defeat. Crooked bankers who do not com mit suicide are dropping into the ha bit of failing dead. People who are not able to take care of their private conduct are hardly fit to prescribe rules for others. There is as much difference between Information and gossip as there Is be tween walnut and basswood. Don't blame the devil with every thing crooked In the world. Mankind has done a good deal in that line. When a girl Is saying goodby to a man in the hall, why does she stand up so close and put her hands behind her? It is well to remember when In or out of society that purple and fine linen never made a porcine character a fine gentleman. Now that another United States Ven esuelan Commission has been appoint ed the people will be less restless. It has been difficult trying to worry along between commissions. Jake Schaefer, the former champion bllllardlat, fell off a Chicago street car and permanently injured the wrist of his cue arm. and is now suing for SIOO,- 000 damages. It's a stiff price, but it is also a stiff wrist Maguire Hines, a railroad builder, has Just returned from a visit to Eng land. He went there to raise $3,000,000 for a new line In the South. "The peo ple I met believe that the late war over here was between North and South America." he said, recently, "and their notion about Venezuela is that the confederacy has started the war again." England is in need of free schools. Whatever our senators and represen tatives do or fail to do about other matters, the present session of .con gress ought not to close without a stilt able appropriation for the repair of the frigate Constitution, —"Old Iron sides." Immediate action is necessary for the preservation of a vessel whose decks have been "red with heroes blood," and whose glorious reeprd is an imperishable part of our national re nown. The special agent recently dispatched to Japan by the San Francisco Bureau of Foreign Ommerce for the purpose of collecting data with reference to matters affecting the interests of Amer ican manufacturers has submitted a re port, in which he states that during the past two months there has been almost a panic in Japanese financial circles, but the worst is now considered over. After the war with China speculation was rampant. Thousands of stock com panies were floated, and their shares boomed. Everybody invested, but col lapse soon caine. The native banks have shut down indiscriminately of late and merchants allowed no accom modations. Heavy stocks of merchan dise were thus thrown back upon the market, and warehouses are crowded. ▲ minister in the far west during the past few years has made a col lection of curious and worthless money given at the services of his church. His exhibit includes Peruvian. Hawai ian and Swedish coin, also quarters and dimes, punched, battered, defaced, which he would not attempt to pass for their face value, and could not pass them if he made the attempt. He has given notice that the defaced coin will be sent to the mint and sold as bullion, or melted and made into some article of church ware. Such a matter-of-fact statement is worth more than a hundred Jeata to show that the collec tlonplate Indicates the possible char acter of a contributor. If consciously used in this way the debased coin represents a deception. The giver knows that his tradesman would hesl- | tats to accept the coin In trade. To drop it into the contribution-box is an easy disposition of the obnoxious piece of metal, and apparently shows generous obedience to a religious duty. It Is a small, misleading act. Its piti ful meanness could not be tolerated by a thoroughly honest mind. The police of Kansas City properly come under the classification of heavy weights. The members of the force were recently weighed, when it was found that the average weight of each policeman is 198% pounds, and the av enge height to S feet 10% Inches. The heaviest officer weighs 280 pounds and to seven feet high, lacking four Inches. The wife who is meek and patient and forgiving and always meets her hue band with a smiling face no mat ter how much he makes her cry in se gret. fits terribly tiresome. THE LEGISLATURE. WwlaMdar Febroary Htb Benate.—Senator Bromley's bill to regulate tbe times of payment for the carriage of water In irrigating ditches was called up in the morning upon the adverse report of the committee on Ju diciary, which claimed that the bill was drawn upon a misconstruction of facts and that it should be killed. The adverse rei»ort of the committee claimed that the bill bad been drawn utmn the assumption that ditch com panies sell water, whereas, the oppo nents of the hill contend that ditch companies merely carry the water for the fanners. Arguments on the bill occupied the entire day, ending about 4:.*W» o’clock, when a vote was taken aud the ad verse report adopted and the hill killed. Farmers will continue to pay for the amount of water that they want, and not for the amount that they actually get. An attempt was made to again get Senator Schermerlionrs civil service hill lie fore tlie Senate, hut some mem bers thought that it was too late In the day. and when tin* motion to consider the hill was put the filibustering tac tics that were practiced the day Ih.*- fore were renewed. After Ineffectual attempts to consider the hill the Senate adjourned till Satur day. as the Legislature is to visit the state institutions tit Boulder. Greeley and Fort Collins to-morrow and Fri da s*.

The next hill called for third reading was also by Mr. Kngiey, to abolish pri vate detective agencies, and It was also passed without the emergency ciuusc, as did Mr. Engicy's hill to abolish caje ital punishment. In the afternoon a call of tlie House had to Im* ordered before a sufficiency of members could lie had to transact business. s The First Ward Independent Polit ical duh sent a memorial In support of Mr. Bucklln's House hill No. 4. to sub mit an amendment to the constitution to permit of the General Assembly ex empting land improvements and per sonal property from taxation on a i>e titlon signed by not less titan ten i>er cent, of the voters of the county. It is what Is known as the home rule hill, and embodies the single tax theory. Provision is math* for the taxation of franchises. The hill was taken up on second rending. Mr. Ituckllu stated that prac tically all of tlie organized labor of Colorado was In favor of his measure. A petition for it from Mesa county was signed by tlie hankers, professional men and editors aud laboring men. Hills of a ilk#* nature had !>een Intro duced in California. Illinois. Michigan. Delaware. New York ami other states. After a lengthy discussion tin* hill passed second reading. A hill by Mr. Helblg -No. ISG-to re quire notes, debts and other obligations to lie made out of tlie property on which the same are secured, which was particularly considered last week, was taken up again on second reading. Mr. Knfulo had an amendment that all mortgages and trust deeds could only lie satisfied through tin* mort- 1 gaged property. Mr. Monson withdrew ills amendment it* favor of this. Mr. Englcy had an amendment re garding pi *dges of security of shares of capital dock held as collateral and Indorsed to recognize tin* holder of the stock as the prima facie owner. The House adjourned before the mat ter could Im* settled. Tliuradtv, February IStli. The Senate was not in session. House-Only thirty-live members were present, the others having gone to Greeley. A petition was presented from the miners of the Tom Boy mine, asking for tlie repeal of the miners’ mechanic licit law. Another petition asked foi lin' passage of Mr. Philp’s anti trust hill, and a memorial from tin* Denver Bar association asked for the passage of bill No. I«>7. permitting tin* admis sion as evidence of unacknowledged instruments that have been in exist ence for fifteen years. The committee on federal relations reported the Dill providing for a com mission to investigate tlie ceding of government lands to tin* state, with the recommendation that it In* laid on the table. The committee on corporation re ported Mr. Philp’s bill providing for a railway commission, recommending that the bill Ik* laid on tlie table for the reason tlint the subject matter was covered In several other hills be fore the committee. These hills, it so hapiK*ns. are the ones tlie committee refuses to rejiort on. Mr. Phllp claimed that the action of the committee was not made in good faith. A discussion resulted anti the House ordered the return to it of Mr. Philp’s hill. Mr. Sweeney's bill providing for the management and conservation of es tates in Colorado of lunatic persons residing without the state passed sec ond reading. Mr. Anderson’s bill providing that any county shall lie subject to gar nishment for debt the same as any private corjK)ration, also passed sec ond reading. Mr. Helbig’s bill requiring notes, debts and other obligations to be col lected from property given as secur ity for the payment of such obliga tions before other property belonging to tbe debtor shall be sold was de feated. When Mr. Hart’s usury bill was tak en up for consideration, the author made a strong plea for fixing the legal rate at 0 per cent., with a maximum charge of 8 per cent, upon special con tract. After some discussion Mr. Pierson’s bill, fixing the rate of inter est at 8 per cent., with a maximum charge of 12 per cent, on special con tract. was accepted as an amendment for Mr. Hart’s bill, and with these amendments the bill passed second reading. Friday. February Both. Tlie Senate was not In session. House—Mr. Helblg’s bill forbidding the acceptance of railroad paw by officials was taken up and dlacoaaed at length. The list prepared by Mr. Helblg shows that for the first half of the ses sion there has been paid to the meiu lM*rn of the House for mileage over fri.OUO. a very small portion of which has actually l**en paid out by the members, for nearly all of them are willing to acknowledge that hey ride on passes anti still collect mileage from the state.

Mall Carr Inr Digs ■»• W ay Ont luldrd—Snow Slides la Oth»r Sections of Colorado. Denver. Feb. 22.-A special dispatch from Ouray to the Republican says: A mail carrier. J. E. Bell, who was caught in the Miowslide ou the Riverside road three miles this side of Ironton Friday forenoon, and List night given up as dead by everyone, dug himself out Sat urday morning aliout 8 o’clock and managed to work his way three miles this way to the toll road keeper’s house at Bear Creek Falls. He was seen by the toll keej»er, Harvey Lewis, making signs of distress when within a half mile of the house, ami he rushed to his assistance. When he realized he was safe his strength gave way and the keeper, Harvey Lewis, carried him to his toll house and leaving an assist ant to care for him. ran down to this city for physicians. Dr. South and oth ers immediately hastened to tlie toll house and everything possible was done for liis relief. He lay un«*onscious under the snow for fifteen hours ami towards daylight: heard running water and dug toward it. The water was in a ditch and fur nished air. otherwise he would have suffocated. The parties who were dig ging for him caine within ten feet from the top of where he was lying. Some*of his toes were frozen and a slight gash was made on his neck by a shovel he carried. 'Hie fierce wind ami snow storm which raged Friday made the work of tin* searching party extremely hazardous, and the search could not be continued after dark and he was given up for dead. The physician in attendance and oth ers brought him down to his home this afternoon, and there is every probabll- Ity of his recovery. When the news of his safety reached the city there was a good deal of excitement and a gen eral feeling of rejoicing, as the escape from death is looked ii|M>n as an un precedented occurrence In the history of snowslide*. Saturday afternoon an avalanche of snow, logs and rocks fell upon the Rio Grande Southern station of OpMr and demolished the depot and eight freight cars standing ou the siding. The sta tion agent and his wife were eating dinner at the time, and although the building was carried down the moun tain side and crashed into a shapeless mass, neither was Injured. Charles Sweeney, a miner who worked in the Woody district, near As pen. was caught in a slide on Friday afternoon ami instantly killed. In a snow slide at Pitkin. Martin Mentley, a miner, was killed and sev eral others wen* Injured, early yester day morning. No other fatalities were reported yesterday. A special from Breckcnridge last night says: Word lias Just been* re ceived here of a fatal snowslide in the Montezuma district, by which it is Im*- lieved that William Conway aud elev en Jacks have iM*rish«>d. Mr. Conway left Dillon on Friday morning with his Jack train to pack down ore from the Campbell & Graham lease on the At lantic mine on Collier mountain, which is owned by Captain Sampson Ware of Denver. As he did not return, ills friends became anxious and sent out a party to hunt for him. Word was sent in that Mr. Conway and ids Jack train had been overwhelmed by a snow slide and a party of eight men went out to attempt to rescue him. The district where tlie accident occurred is aliout fourteen miles from Dillon and con tains but few people at tills season of the year, ami it is hardly probable that Conway will be found alive. About thirty men are at work digging In the slide. CRETANS FIRED UPON. W*>ihlp( Shell the Position of on Attacking Force Near Canea. Cauea. Feb. 21. 7 p. in.—A fusiiadc having continued since morning, de spite the warning of tlie foreign ad mirals. the united squadrons Ih»mhord ed the insurgent camp outside of Ca nea. Later reports are to the effect that the English meu-of-war opened the bombardment. The others followed. The Kaiscriu Augusta fired melinite shells. Tlie commander of the Greek man-of-war Hydra cleared for action in case the necessity should arise. Some shells fell in the town of Canea. rais ing clouds of dust. It is rumored sev eral persons were killed and wounded. When firing ceased the Greek flag was still flying over the insurgents' camp. 8 p. m.-An engagement has Just oc curred just above the village of Ciur nles. lie tween the insurgents and a Turkish hand. At 4:45 p. ui. the insur gents at Akmtiri. having attacked the Turkish garrison at Halepa. tlie Joint fleet liomharded the Cretans for fweiv ty-flve minutes. Tho Insurgents fled, taking their flag with them. Feb. 21.—A dlfqiatcli to the Daily News from Canea dated Sunday says: Smart tiring was heard to-day in tlie hills to the eastward. Tlie reply of the Turks was feeble aud It was obvious that they must nlmudon their posi tions if pressed. The gnn practice from the redoubt on the outer Hues was ludicrous. The chief Cretan position was a hamlet on a ridge of hills. 4,000 yards from tlie flagship. At 4:30 o’clock this (Sunday) after noon. signals were made to H. M. S. Dryad. H. M. S. Harrier and H. M. 8. Revenge, together with one Italian, one German and one Russian ship, to open Are on the Cretan position, where the Greek flag was hoisted some days ago. The British ships fired for ty and tbe foreign ships thirty -shells at tbe village, and rained the honse held by the Cretans. The flag was soon lowered ami the ortler "cease Are” sounded after ten minutes. There upon the *ag was rehoisted. The rocks awasfi were crowded with Cretans. The Turks, encouraged by the fleet, now opened a lively fusllade while the Cretans were removing the wounded. The Cretans had not replied during tbe whole performance. It was a some what melancholy spectacle. Mr. Clmliad'i Plans. Chicago. .Feb. 22.—The Post's Wash ington special says: President Cleveland fold his personal friend and admirer, ex-Commissioner of Agriculture Coleman, that he was going to devote hto spare time during the next few years, or an Indefinite period, to the writing of a book on au tobiographical lines, dating from his election to the mayoralty of Buffalo down to the fourth of March; 18U7. He says he Is going to live the life of a retinal gentleman, so far as he may lie permitted to do so, and will mot en gage in the practice of law. He is now at the age of nearly sixty years, and lM*iug In the possession of a comforta ble competence, will devote the re mainder of his life to quiet pursuits. He said he had been accumulating a large amount of ilata upon the sub ject. and would take his time In com piling the story, that he intended to moke as complete as jiossible. RESPITE OF THIRTY DAYS PrMldMt Clotland Gives tbs Chaws Mar drrrn Mor« Tim*. Santa Fe. N. M.. Feb. 20.—A Wash ington telegram from Attorney Gen eral Hannon to Sheriff Kfnsell an nounces that tin* president has grant eel a respite to the Chavez assassins till March 23. This announcement creates great excitement here and tin* president is heartily denounced for ills interference in the affairs of law and order in this territory. In addition to his order of last night directing tin* local troop of territorial cavalry aud company of infantry to report to Sheriff 11. C. Kinsell at O o’clock a. in. ou Tuesday next in con nection with the execution of the four inemberj»-4jf the Borrego gang of as khSsHm, which was expected to take plarotbere. Governor Thornton, early to-day. found it necessary to order the Infantry company on duty at the peni tentiary at 5:30 this evening. Tlie assassins an* confined there and it lias !m*cii discovered that a plot ex isted. work«*d up, it is said, by a broth er of the Borregos to blow up the in stitution with dynamite, hence the call for the militia. This precaution was also thought to be necessary by the governor because the Button gang, a secret political organisation which flourished In ’92-*O3, and to which the four men belonged, last night chalked tlielr cabalistic call for a meeting to night on the governor’s door, on the door of the chief deputy sheriff and on the [lavement about tbe public square. This Indicated to the officials that the Button gang intended to make trouble, so the governor at once ordered the militia on duty. NO CHANCE FOR PEACE. Cab* in Will Not Accept tho K« forms Off.-r-d by Spall. Chicago, Feb. 22.—A correspondent telegraphs the Record as follows from Havana: "Judging from all I can hear and see. there is no hope for an early ter mination of the struggle in Cuba. Wlille tho reforms promised bj* the ministry at Madrid arc cordially and gratefully received by the responsible portion of the community—the plant ers. the merchants aud manufacturers *ras g great improvement u[M»n the present military despotism, the olive branch has lieen scorned by those who alone can put an end to the war. It is now thoroughly understiMMl that Go mez. Garcia and other insurgent lend ers will not listen to any terms of com promise. They regard tin* offer of re forms as a confession of weakness on tlie part of Il*o S|>aulbli jcovorumont. and believe Hint they will be soon In a inmition to state their own terms. The radical autonomists and ‘sepani tionists.’ as they rail the element of the community who want independ ence or annexation to the United States, have declined to accept the re forms unless they are considerably amended. As they stand, the element of home rale is everywhere dependent upon the approval of the captain-gen eral. His [lowers are in no way cur tailed. and in some particulars are en larged. As one of the radicals ex press'd it: *We are allowed ta do as we please about our own affairs when ever he gives us permission.’ Then? is to lie a local legislative assembly, a part of whom are to be elected by the people, and the other part appointed by him; so that if he can succeed in electing a few members he becomes dictator aud rales the island.” HANNA WILL GET IT. Governor Hnshnell W.ll Appoint 'Him to Succeed Senator Sherman. Columbus. Ohio. Feb. 21.—Governor Bushnell to-night gave out the follow ing statement to tlie press: "It has been my intention to make no announcement in relation to the action I would take in the matter of an ap pointment to All the prospective vacan cy In the Ohio representation in the United States Senate until the vacancy actually existed. But. on account of the manifest interest of the people and their desire to know what will be done. I deem it best now to make the following statement: When Senator Sherman resigns to enter the cabinet of Presklent McKinley. I will appoint to succeed him Hon. Marcus A. Hanna, of Cuyahoga county, to serve until his successor is chosen by the Seventy third General Assembly of the state. I trust this action will meet the approv al of the people. (Signed) "ASA 8.
