President Signs Ute Reserve Homestead Bill. A Washington special to the Denver Republican Hava: The president has signed tiie bill pro viding for free homestead on the Ute reservation In Colorado.

J. N. Pierce Robbed and As aulted. Glen wood Springs, Colo .June 18. —Jerrv Fierce, a member of the firm of the Nuckolls Packing company of Pueblo, was robbed ai d brutally as saulted by a masked highwayman at Miuturn, fifty miles east of this city, at S:80 this morning. Mr. Pieroe's con dition Is very serious. The robbery occurred in the caboose of a Denver & Rio Grande stock freight. Mr. Fierce and his partner, Mr. Reef, were in charge of a number of cattle be ing shipped. At Minturn the train stopped and Mr. Reef and the members of the train crew left the caboose. Mr. Pierce remaining alone. A few minutes later a masked man, armed with a revolver, suddenly entered the caboose and ordered Mr. Fierce 'to turn over his money and watch on paiu of being shot. Mr. Fierce complied, giving the mao two $5 notes and hia watch. The robber became angry when bis victim said be bad nothing more of value to give and began to beat Mr. Fierce about the head with his Revolver. Mr. Fierce was rendered unconscious and the robbery was not discovered until the train crew returned. Dr. F. A. Coffman, the company’s sur geon at Minturn, was summoned and dressed the injured man’s wounds and then had him sent to Leadville, where his family reside. Dr. Coffman pro nounces Mr. Fierce’s wounds as very serious and saya that he must have lost fully hsif a gallon of blood before be was found. Mr. Fierce is 65 years of age. He was unable to give any description of the hold-up. The sheriff of Eagle county and a number of deputies are scouring the country in the vicinity of Minturn in hopes of catching the highwayman. The shove dispatch appeared In the Denver Post, which arrived here Thurs day evening. Mr Fierce's many friends in this vicinity hope he is not seriously hurt. Report Was Not Verified. Peter Jennings, state timber inspect or, and Fred J. McNair, of Jeadville, a prominent raining engineer, stopped in Craig Tuesday night and on Wednesday morning started on a trip through the Mavbell country. These gentlemen came to this county in the interests of the state, hut while here they made a little tour ot investi gation on their own account. One of the things tiiey came for is to investi gate the reports of timber depredations going on east of Sidney, but upon exam ination they found that the reports could not be verified. They then came down to look over a strip of state land which extends from Elk Head in a* southeast erly course to a point near Hayden, for which application for a lease has been made. There are about 8,0(10 acres in this strip. From here they went to investigate the state land situation In Maybell val ley after which they will tend in a re port to the state land board. They were piloted around in the lower country by Long Horn Thompson.— Craig Courier. Preserves For Wild Game. The annual message of President Roosevelt included a recommendation that certain areas be set aside as pre serves for wild game, and the attention of oongress la again directed to this matter bv Mr. Lacey, of lowa. The subject is one of considerable interest to the people of Colorado, where the wild game, including deer, elk, bear, antelope, grouse and other birds and animals, is not only a valuable posses sion of our own people, but forms a strong attraction to bring Into the state numerous outside visitors who are of great benefit to us In many ways. It is a matter of general knowledge that no state game law, however well executed, is sufficient to secure the ends desired in the protection of wild game and the maintenance of our game re sources. On the other hand, experience has clearly shown, in the Yellowstone, in the Adirondacks, and in other places in various parts of the country where * game preserves have been established j bv individuals or by the government, that these do not only preserve the game within their limits, but that they also form xsource of supply from which the | depleted region adjoining may be re-' plenlsbed. Colorado is especially suited for the! establishment of one or more of these ! game preserves, because there are al ready set aside tracts of large area ( which are uece—ary to the maintenance i at the water supply in some of our largest streams. These cannot be used for the ordinary purposes of private ownership without harm to the greater Interests for which they were estab isbed, but they may easily lie kept as game preserves without interfering with the water supply or the forests. It is. therefore, to he hoped Uiatcoug reafc will act upon the president’s sug gestion and will provide for one or more suitable preserves in this state, where our wild game may he kept nud in creased. and which may serve as a source of supply for the regions now so rapidly being cleared of wild life by resident and visiting hunters.—Colorado Bpri. igs Gazette. The Irrigation Bill. *Jt Washington dispatch aays: The irrigation bill as passed by the bouse creates a reclamation fund front the sale of public lands in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho. Kansas. Montana. Nebraska. Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota. Oklahoma. Oregon, South Dakota, Utah. Washing ton and Wyoming, less the amount paid to local land offices and 5 per cent due the state under existing laws for educa tional purposes, the reclamation fund to be used for the construction and main tenance of irrigation works in the states and territories enumerated. Provision is made for the payment out of the treasury of any deficiencies in the allowances to agricultural colleges ow ing to this disposition of public lands. The secretary of the interior is author ised to examine, survey and construct the irrigation works and report the cost thereof to congress at each session. Section 4 provides for the letting of contracts for the works contemplated in •actions, when the necessary funds are available in the reclamation fund for socli section. Section 6 provides that “no right to the use of water for land in private ownership shall be sold for a tract ex ceeding 180 acres to any one land owner and no such right shall permanently at tach until alt payments therefor are made, and no such sale shall be made to snv land owner unless he be an actual bouafide resident on such land or oc cupant thereof, residing in the neighbor hood of said land.” Section 6 authorizes the secretary to use the reclamation fund for the oper ation and malnlßßanrs of the Irrigation works. Section 8 provides state control over waters of non-navlgable streams such aa are used in Irrigation. The bill had previously passed the senate, but as it was materially amended in the house it will have to go back to that body for further consideration. Its chances of final passage are good. It would greatly benefit this state should it become a law. Denver Live Stock Market. Denver, Colo.. June 18.—Receipts of live stock at the Denver Union Stock Yards for the month to date are 87,889 cattle, 2,741 hogs and 1053 sheep, allow ing an increase of 9,702 cattle and a decrease of 1,487 hogs and 1.158 sheep compared to the same period last year. For the year to date there is an Increase ot 35,658 cattle and 7,789 sheep and a decrease o; 6.981 hogs. The week closes with practically no market here except for butcher stuff and even that market is limited. Everything depends entirely upon the decision of the Colorado Rack ing company whether or not it will meet the demands of its men for an increase in pay. At present everything is prac tically shut down. The movement of , southern cattle is making some business but there is no movement on the market of either sfockers or feeders. Buyers are not wanting but little just now and tills market is in about the same con dition as others. All depends upon the corn crop. Eastern markets on choice beef steers are gradually reaching the 8c mark, the past week's top prices being $7.95. A fair run of southern | cattle is expected next week. The Socialist In politics. Socialism is a theory, and its disciples are political dreamers. Their platforms are platitudes, and the dupes, who blindly follow this ignis fatuous in mod i era politics do not comprehend the hand that directs the alluring meteor. There is a class of independent voters who i want something which they cannot state in definite languabe. and to such a glit i tering generality appeals. Municipal i ownership of public utilities is a definite statement of the socialistic progrom. but i this rational movement is discounte nanced by ultra visionaries whose aims and purposes neither they nor any one I else can comprehend. Extremists are j always liadle to damn any cause, no matter how laudable, with which they are associated. The man who callsjhimself conserva tive is frequently radical on the wrong 1 side. The man who calls himself radi | cal la frequently superficial. Evolution ! eliminates both and progress is inevit | able. The radical fool, and conservative knave, are alike stumbling blocks in the path of true progress.—Denver Demo- I crat. J. C. DAVIS. r PTTTT PTn’NnriTPfl V. H. CALDWELL.
