Stockmen and Politics. “Is Alva Adams to be the next Unit ed States Senator from Colorado?” asked Carson Adams of Fort Collins yesterday while talking live stock pol itics with a number of stockmen at the yards. Every stockmen present ex pressed the hope that the Adams family would be left out of the deal, and said that the stoikmen all over tbe state were feeling the same way. “Well,” continued Mr. Adams, “the way to turn diwn tbe Adams crowd is to have a candidate of our own. Tbe stockmen in this state are organized now and if they would stand together they could come pretty nearly sending their own naan to congress or the sen ate. lam In favor of John W. Springer for senator. I have found him abso lutely fair. He is a stockman, and has money enough so he cannot be accused of being a boodler. I do not know what his politics are and I don’t care. As a stockmen, I am sick and tired of politics and for one, I would like to see the stockmen of Colorado get together on a platform of one plank and one word. Business. I believe that it is a good plan to commence talking the proposition right away. We are going to need some good stockmen in congress soon, and John W. Springer knows what the stockmen want and would be my idea of the man for the place.” It may be remarked in conclusion that every stockman in the crowd in dorsed Mr. Adams’ sentiments.—Den ver Record-Stockman. [This sheet has always fought in favor of range leasing. Now it is posing aa a great champion of tbe cattlemen. The article above and the one follow ing are from the same issue. Note the sentiments uttered in the latter.— Ed. Herald.] “Anything more senseless and ridicu lous than the present law governing tbe use of tbe publio grazing lands of tbe West could hardly be devised. It tbe law is literally enforced, tbe effect is to encourage selfishness, greed and de- Wtmttonr la men have agreed among themselves for a more sensible plan of dividing the range witli drift fences, or In tbe moan tains by utilizing natural barriers by mutual agreement and protecting apart of tbe range for a portion of the year, so as to allow the grass a chance to grow and reseed. But while this is common sense, it Is not law; on the contrary, it is directly against the letter of the law, and now Uncle Sam is busy putting an end to such illegal practices. Destroy all the range you please, turn it back Into absolute desert, but don’t attempt to protect it in any way or you may land in jail. This is practically the effect of the enforcement of the present silly and senseless law. And there are some stockmen who clamor for a continuation of these laws.” A Divided House. Our Fourth of July celebration seems to have “died a bornio”, and that new sidewalk to the depot is responsible for its death. Some of our business men refused to give anything towards build ing tbe sidewalk, and when it came to raising money for the 4th., the other business men who bad contributed to wards tbe sidewalk declared that they would not help the celebration unless the sidewalk was finished, and it now looks as if we would have neither a sidewalk or a celebration. This course is, in our estimation, very poor policy on the part of our business men. Nothing hurts a town more than for its people to be unable to pull together when it comes to a question of a public benefit. If a contemplated improvement is to benefit the whole town, it is poor policy for anyone to oppose it simply because it don’t meet with his individual views. And because someone else didn’t do SPECIAL NOTICE J. H, SETZLEE, DENTIST, Will be at The Meeker Hotel w three weeks, beginning June 24th.
