The Commissionership. The retirement of Mr. Z. T. Banta from, the commlssionersblp race nar rows the contest for that important of fice down to J. W. Rector, the Demo cratic nominee, and J. A. Simms, Re publican candidate. The Herald baa nothing to say against Mr. Simms as a man or citizen, but will remind our readers ot the time honored adage to think twice before voting against tried and true Jim Rector, who has made as good an of ficial as the county ever bad. As citi zen aud official he is a good man; keep him lu the position in which be has served the people of this county well and faithfully. In every age, in every clime, in every oountry, when conditions are too hard upon the people, the people demand a change. The answer is always made that under the law nothing can be done. Then, and not till then, the fundament al law is changed. It will be changed here. The people will not forever be at the mercy of combinations of capital or of labor. II private ownership of public necessities and public utilities proves harmful to the people at large, public ownership will be tried. To make these changes does not mean socialism, anar chy or revolution. We have the right and the tools with which to control our own destinies, and it is our duty to use them. | Dr. Johnson used to say he loved a good hater. This remark has been mis used more times than it has been prop erly applied. A good bater Is not an in discriminate hgter; a human wild cat is not, nor is a loon or screech-owl; but the trusty oM watch dog who guards your boose day aqd night, who romps with the children and Ukes long rambles with you on Sunday, ia a very good hater of everything he believes to be inimical to your interests. Good haters are such because they know what to hate, they are also affectionate, steadfast, lovable friends. Good haters are worth cherish ing; great haters, however, ought to be The New York banks say they are abort of money because the west and sooth have drawn on them to move: crops. Secretary Shaw offers to relieve the situation by helping the books east sod west, and now the western banks go on record ae saying that they not only have all the money they need, hot are looking for good Investments for their surplus. Why do not the western hanks hoy some of the stocks that their New York brethren have boosted ao high and thus make everyone happy? The 828.000,080 bonds tor the building of the proposed Moffat Use from Denver to Halt Lake were placed on the asarket the first of the week and are being rapidly taken op. even beyond the ex pectations of the promoters. It now looks as if the new road ie amoved. Hv a unanimous vote of the represen tatives or the 147.000 mine workers who have been on strike in Pennsylvania since last May. the coal strike was offi cially declared off on the 21st Inst. This was the greatest coutest ever waged between capital aud labor. The decision of these representatives places all the questions involved in the struggle in the hands of the arbitration committee ap pointed by the president of the United States. The miners resumed work Thursday. President Roosevelt sum moned the arbitrators to meet in Wash ington Friday (yesterday) and began their investigation. Systematic Effort vs. Good Luck. Men have ‘wen carried to financial ■access 1 ,'ortunate circumstances over which..tfiey had no control, and aa loug as tlw human race exists examples will be found of pure luck acting to shape some men's careers. The rule, however, is that each must work out Ids own des tiny, and the men who are entitled to the highest credit for great tilings ac complished are those who have created conditions by the force of their own brains and hands. The best ultimate results are reached by those who have formed a definite purpose and who have refused to be in fluenced hv forces tending to turn them into any other road than that in which they had decided to travel. In all pro fessions and In all business this princi ple baa illustrations, and it may be said to be one nf the basic laws of successful effort. It is no better exemplified than in advertising. The advertiser who is spasmodic and unsystematic in his metliods Ib the man who is taking the long chances that good fortune may seek him out. The one who lays a definite plan, who carries on a campaign of publicity founded on logical principles, and who persists in the course he has determined to be right, is the man who creates a prestige for his goods epd ultimately wins the reward of his perseverance.—Mabin’s Magazine. A Double Wooding. The residence of Mr. O. J. Aldrich was the scene of a very pretty double wedding last Wedneeday, Octolwr 22, when Mis* Julia Aldrich and Jno. F. Wilson. an* Miss Zora Aldrich and Fred U.,UaalHtt were, respectively, united in the holy bonds of matrimony by Rev. G- F. Ray, of the M. £. church of this place. The ceremony was per formed at 10 o’clock a. m., and was im mediately followed by a bountiful wed ding repast. The two brides are well and favora ably known, being the daughter and neloe of O. J. Aldrich, ttie well-to-do ranchman of Thornburg. Air. Wilson is a prosperous young ranchman of the Thornburg region aud Mr. Uazletta prominent business man of Galesburg. 111. The happy young couples passed through Meeker Wednesday evening on their wedding tour. Mr. and Mrs, Wil son will visit at Colorado Springs ami Denver, after which they will return and make their home ou Air. Wilson’s ranch at Thornburgh. Mr. and Mrs. Ilazlett will visit in Colorado Springs. Denver and Kansas City, after which they will go to Gales burg, 111., where they intend making tbeir future home. The beat wishes of the many friends of the young people are witti them. Much Wealth in Cattle. The shipments of cattle leaving Rifle daily are the largest that have gooe out from that place in years. What be tween stock and fruit, both roads are ao busily engaged that not a single local freight train has been run for some time. When asked to roughly estimate the shipments of cattle from Rifle, Austin Gavin, of the Midland, said “Well, It won’t be lees than 80.000 bead, anyway. About 10,000 from Garfield, and the net from Routt and Rio Blanco.” Figuring thirty head of cattle to the car. Ibis memos 1,000 carloads. Estimat ing the average value of cattle at SB9, it will be seen that nearly $1,000,000 worth of stock Is being shipped from Rifle. The heavy shipments are attributed to the fact that the corn crop this sum mer Ib Kansas and adjoining states waa a very rich one. Consequently there is a demand for cattle in those states. Last year there waa practically no de mand and local cattlemen held onto their herds. The shipments now being made are what waa hekl back last year, and the Increase. They are nearly all feeders, although some are being shipped to return here in the spring and again go oat on the range.—Glen wood Avalanche. Nearing Steamboat. The Steamboat Pilot says: The Unioo PacMe surveyors are now camped at Big creek and may be in Steamboat next week. They are making rapid pragmas with the survey and are obtain ing a fine grade. It le reported on reliable authority that when the line is completed to Steamboat the corps will return to Hog park and survey a line through the an- Unmette fielde and thence down to Gary’s mash, making a junction there with the MCffst line.
