COLO., SATURDAY. JUNE 28. 1902. The Homestead Act. Accoidiug to the text of the Hell homestead act, as it appeared in last week's Denver papers and in Thh llkuald of last week, it read v "The bill provides that the homestead laws are extended over the lands included in anv forest reservation, etc.” The cor rect text of the bill hh>B it shall not ap ply in forest reservations. Through the courtesy of Judge Wild hack. who keeps tab on all matters relative to land office and land law busi tiesa, we this week give Congressman Hell's btk in full ns follows: AN ACT .PROVIDING FOR FREE HOMESTEADS IN THE DTK INDIAN RESERVATION . IN COLORADO. He it enacted bv the Senate and House of Representatives or the United States of Atneften In Congress assembled. That site provisions of the homestead laws he. and are herebv. extended over nnd shall apply to the lauds included within the limita of the former Ut® Indian Reservation in Colorado not in cluded in any forest reservation, in addition to the provisions of existing laws relating to cash entries thereon : Provided. That no selection or entry of lands in lieu of lands included within a forest reservation or of soldiers' or sail ors' additional homesteads shall be al lowed within said limits. Sec. 2 That all sums of money that may l>e lost to the Ute Indian fund by reason of the passage of this Act. shall t>e paid Into the fund by the United States, and all moneys received by reason of the commutation of any home stead entry shall be credited to said Ute Indian fund. Sec. 3. That no lands shall be In cluded In any location or settlement under the provisions of this Act on which the United States Government has valuable improvements. Serious Illness of King Edward. A London dispatch of the 24th an nounces : With dramatic suddenness the king has been stricken down upon the eve of coronation. To-night he lies In a critic al state at at Buckingham palace. Indescribable consternation prevails throughout the country and this conster nation is reflected In the cablegrams re ceived from all the centers of the uni verse. The king’s trouble is called perityph litis, which is something akin to appen dicitis. The disease developed very suddenly. Last night's papers say the king will recover. The Pierce Assault. The Leadville News-Dispatch of last Wednesday gives the following particu lars of the dastardly assault on J. N- Pierce: At 1:30 to-day Jerry Pierce, the well known cattleman, was brought home from Minturu. Colo., more dead than alive. Shortly after 3 o'clock this morning Mr. Pierce reached Minturn on a special train loaded with cattle belonging to Pierce. Reef & Co. Minturn is the place where the train crews always change, and when the train pulled into the yards the old crew dropped off and the new crew had not yet taken possession of the caboose. Mr. Pierce and an assistant named Watson were the only two men in the caboose. Mr. Watson went out uhead to look at the cattle and Mr. Pierce staid in the car. He was partially asleep when a masked man entered and ordered him to throw up his hands. He went through Pierce's pockets, took sls and his gold watch. About the time that his pockets were rifled Mr. Pierce was j fully awakened. The idea struck him j that perhaps some one was playing a | joke on him and he readied over and | pulled the man's mask off. That was ail he remembered. The j hold-up immediately used his gun and j struck Mr. Pierce over the head with it several times. The weapon inflicted several ugly wounds and the injured | man fell to the floor of the car and lav j in a pool of his own blood where he was ! found about 30 minutes later. The bold-up had fled and Hoffman j was summoned to the wounds. Mr. Reef came up from Wolcott at | once, and this morning Mr. Pierce was taken home on the noon passenger train. Dr. Hoffman says he thinks the wounds are not dangerous, but could not .tell! just what to think of the case yet. Mr. Pierce regained consciousness soon after he was found, but is verv 1 weak from the loss of blood. Hecannot stand alone and his left arm is partially paralyzed, probably from being beaten j with the gun. Mr. Pierce is one of the best liked and , kindly men in the city. After a busi ness career both here and in Aspen for twenty years he has not a single ac quaintance who does not dearly love him and who will sympathize with his family ; in their sorrow at this time. A Pessimistic Wail. “They sav a cabinet officer only has about SI,OOO the advantage of Hall Player Lajoie.” “It's a shame, ain't it, the wav things are unevenly distributed in this world? Think of a cabinet officer, who couldn't tell a hunt from a home run, getting all off SB,OOO a year! What's this country Coming to ?T—Cleveland Plaiu Dealer. Water and the Law. Early this week Water Commissioner M ><>g entered complaint against Mrs. Catherine Sprague. Robert McKee, Samuel Boies. Charles Chatlield and Mrs. Minerva C. Pearson, all of Pice aiv e creek, for violation of the water la us. The cases were Imoked to come up bet win Justice Mow Thursday, tint a ch oige of venue was taken to Justice Fi-k. The case against Mrs. Sprague was trii-d before a jury Thursday afternoon aii’i resulted in au acquittal. The case against Robert McKee oc cupied all dav yesterday. The jury brought in a verdict against defendant. ’ other cases will occupy the time of Justice Fisk until disposed ot. Coimtv Attorney Martin Is prosecut ion and M. T. Ryan defending. It is supposed all cases will go to the district court on appeal. War on Wolves. I Alex Heron, of Pagoda, was a Craig! visitor last Thursday. He reports thatj the cattlemen on Williams’ Fork have tyred a couple of professional trappei s to rid the' range of the wolves which have been committing numerous depre dations among the cattle on the range Ih that vicinity fur the past several mouths. Mr. Heron says that during the past ten days the wolves killed eight calves within his immediate vicinity. As these wolves had to be gotten rid of in some manner the stockmen hired two hunters to whom tliev offered a re ward of S2O for each wolf captured. These men went in on Badger creek, a brunch of Williams' Fork, and captured a wolf in a trap. This animal they let remain alive and in the trap. During the evening and early morning hours Ibis captive would set up a howl, tints decoying others to their fate, as the hunters lay in hiding close by and w hen other wolves appeared they were promptly shot. In this manner six wolves have been lured to death within B week. If the cattlemen in that section have to stand payment for the taking of these Wolves alone it will make quite a drain Upon their purses, and as wolves do not ■top In one section long after being tbinted, it is to all stockmen's interest label? on the fight and the co-operation all Interested parties is asked.

The Slickest Rascal. The late James Shakespeare is said to ' have told a storv of a trial where in a well-known politician was charged with , having tried to bribe a negro voter, says the Philadelphia Times. The negro was taken in hand for cross-examination by the defendant's lawyer, who began : “Nonr. repeat what the defendant said, using his exact words." “He dun said he'd gib roe fifty do!—” “Now be didn’t speak in the third per son ! Repeat his exact words. If he said anything, he spoke to you in the first person.'' interrupted the lawyer. “I doan' think I understands, sab,” said the puzzled witness. “I see you don't!” snapped the lawyer, impatiently. “Now. did be say this: “Sam, I will give vou fifty dollars ?" “No. sah ! He dun said nothin’ 'hoot you 'cept to tell me dat if I eber got into any trouble. yo' was the slickest rascal lie . knew to fool de judge an’ jury an’ get me outen de scrape, sab.
