Perhaps it is all right that trusts should bleed the people of the United States so as to be able to sell below cost to foreigners, but if the Republican party really tries to carry the next elec tion on this subject, it will find out something of much importance to itself; MEEKER* COLO., SATURDAY, JULY <5. 1901. By paying out nearly $90,000 in re deeming ’’Robber Seventh” warrants State Treasurer Chipley has got himself into a “fix” which he will have trouble ( la getting out of with credit to himself. , Another mining war is on in Colo- 1 rado. The scene of conflict is the Smuggler-Union mine at Telluride and 1 a pitched battle yras fought at the mine 1 Wednesday morning between union and non-union miners in which twd 1 men were killed and 10 or 12 wounded. 1 m , i The capital punishment act passed by I the late session of tbe legislature went into effect Monday. Therefore, the i man who now commits murder in the < first degree may be sentenced to be hanged by the neck until dead. The bill reviees the manner of hanging in ; vogue years ago at tbe penitentiary, the i condemned man practically springing the trap himself. The Pittsburg Chronicle, an eastern organ is a strong advocate of n national irrigation system. In an editorial on the resources of Nebraska, the Chronicle . takes occasion to note that “every wes tern state is more or less affected by tbe proposition to construct reservoirs and irrigating systems. It is recognized that in tbe development of tbs West nearly all of the arable land has passed Into the hands of settle?*, and virtually nothing remains except lands which must be irrigated. With government aid many thousand acres may be re claimed in Nebraska alone.” Destroyed the Source. The change in the faoe of nature caused by tbe destruction of the mighty , forests of JLebanoo has permanently im- , poverished tbe entire region tnyolred. Tbe Judean valley was rendered arid, , and Palestine today can support but , few people because her water courses have been dried up, for the great trees ( which sheltered the nows and kept the , pitiless gun from reaching Into the , heart of the fringe here been dmtroyod , utterly. ahiwtthdUtMmjSWßH, ' ” 1 COLORADO.

Americans Going to Canada. The capacity of tbt western part of tba United States to provide new homes for settlers is rapldl^dlminishiag; In fact in general terms it san be said that there are no more chances for home ■eekea who do not poeseab capital. Tbe Canadian government is taking advan tage of this condition of affaire and to tbe detriment of the West As a west ern paper says, “Uncle Samehould keep bis eye on Canada.” Canada is un doubtedly drawing a very desirable elMi off population from the United States, end Americana are going over In oenttderable numbers, too, under the shrewd western policy of our northern aelybbyr. It is believed that Canadian eftkialetatistios will show the popula tion about 6,000,000, an inereeee since ss9o of 1,200 <000, which la a percentage &£SEr~"'“' ItH Staled that over 12000 Americans cron ed the border and made their hoes s in Panda last year, and it is prodeted that fully 20.000 will adopt that sour** this year. The Canadians are < looting this Increase to continue year by year. Tt t United States has now little de eiral le land open to homestead entry, and yet there are 75,000,000 acres of puM c land in the Western States and Territories which could be Irrigated with the now wasted water supply and transformed into highly productive areas If the government of the United States would take up the irrigation question and by building storage reser voirs and main line canals bring this water within tbe reach of homebuilders —carry it to tbe land where tbe settler could build the canals necessary for its distribution to the land,—not only would all emigration to Canada from tbe United Btates cease, but thousands of new bOUMS supporting prosperous fami lies would be created upon those lands, now arid and desolate. With this condition of affairs as it exists in the West to-day, the National government cannot afford to hesitate in taking up this great question with vigor and determination. Worthless as a Gift. Time are millions of acres of land In tbe arid region that belongs to the government. That land now ia utterly worthless. Tbe government has been ofleyieg to give it away for the last thirty years if anybody would go and livelon it. No one will take it even as a gift. Let tbe government use its credit to put up Irrigation reservoirs, get (water onto these dry acres, and then ir.vfte the settlers to come, provided that they will pay the cost of irrigation. hew they will flock there in un numbered thousands. There would not to i vacant acre left in five years, if n>ea only bad to pay the actual cost of irrigation to get a title to tbe land. tf the great desert stretches of tbe arid West are ever to be reclaimed and cade Into comfortable and productive tomes for tbe millions who will seek tb«m, the Federal government Will refiemarilv have to take the lead and tuildthe storage irrigation reservoirs.— Uftcwi Independent. pgpgsa THE PIONEERS I.

Valleby, General Agent, Burlington Route, Denver, Colo. On the Wrong Trail. A Mississippi man was traveling through Arkansas with a native even- i gelist as his companion. They bad rid den in silence and finally the Misslsaip plan, who wanted to be social, asked his friend where he was going. “I am on the road to heaven,” answered the evan gelist in a sepulchral tone. “How long have vou been on the road V” asked the Miaaissippian. “Eighteen years my brother,” answered the preacher with a solemn sigh. “Well, see here my friend,” remarked the mad from Missis sippi as he reined up bis horse, “if vou have been on tbe road to heaven for eighteen years, and haven’t got any further than Arkansaw, I don’t care to travel with you. Why, man, you ain’t over a mile and a half from hell right no w. ’’—Com mon wealth. The Great Northwest’s First White Child. One of the most remarkable proofs of , tbe amazing growth of that vast region of our country commonly called the Northwest, with its numerous sister -1 hood of states, and Its population of 1 more than seven million people, is the fact that it is only a little more than eighty years since the first white baby was born there. The child was a girl, the daughter of a regular army officer, and she is still living. A fascinating account of her eventful life, the early years of which were spent among sol diers and savages, will appear in an , parly issue of Tne Ladles’ Home Jour nal. There seems to be a danger that ‘ higher education” may become so cheap that nobody will want it. It is human nature not to value highly things which are obtained too easily. It is usually the chap who has to work hardest for bfs education that makes the most use of it. PRICE. FIVE CENTS; J.W. HCJGUB. J.C. DAVIS. ». EmiSeni... _ . Vioo-PraralcnL A. C. Moulton, Cashier.
