Wilson, the Re publican candidate for the legislature, and F. E. Butler, of Denver, were to be the speakera. but Mr. Wilson did not show up. E. E. Ford ham. chairman of the county central committee, presided and in a very neat little speech, pres ented the speaker of the evening. Mr. Butler confined himself largely to tin llonat issues. In slate matters, lie told MS* Uffulsoo* the HeimMcyn jiirtt ■!s"l»i»d has been, and how bad the Democrats are; to elect Judge Stimson governor would never do, and more in the same strain. In brief, Mr. Butler neither helped Ills own cause or hurt the oilier side. Last evpning was Democratic night. As previously announced. Charles H. Pierce of Denver,- and Thomas E. Irvine of Boulder, were the speakers. Our popular fellow-townsman. L. B. Walbridge presided, and in a short, forcible and witty address, presented the speakers. A large and enthusiastic audience greeted Mr. Pierce, who is generally conceded to be the best cam paign speaker ever heard in these parts. Mr. Pierce eloquently and ablv covered the whole range of national and state issues. He paid particular attention to the growing trust evil. His reference to Senator Teller and Judge Stimson evoked hearty applause. His address and tlint of Mr. Irvine created an excel lent .impression. # * No need to tel! the people of this i county how to vote; they are too intel ligent to need instruction on this line. Locally they will do as they always have •done —pick their men regardless of j party Hues; the party presenting the | most acceptable ticket wins. *** The Democratic state ticket, headed by Judge Stimson, Is one of exceptional strength; it ought to and will command the support of the people. * * Mr. Wilson, the Republican legisla tive candidate, came in from Steamboat Thursday evening; conferred with a few of his party leaders and departed for | heme next morning. * • i * ! Voting the Democratic or Republican i tickets does not vote on the amend ments. You must vote separately on ; these. Tom Horn Guilty of Murder. i Tom Horn, the scout and stock de tective who has been on trial in Chey enne for the killing ot 14-year-old Willie : Nickel I, was found guilty of murder in the first degree last Thursday, October i 23. The jury reached the above verdict after about five hours’ deliberation. While the concensus of opinion was to the effect that Horn was guilty, vet the decision of the jury was a great sur prise, and it was generally believed that , the best to he expected was either a dis agreement or ucqnitai. i The decision but closes another chap ter in the case, for the defense lias al ready moved for a new trial. The Democratic party stands for gov ernment by all thV* pcoplt*. The Repul*- [ lic.in parly stands for government by a j few of the people. Tip for New Settlers. The exact line of the Denver, North western & Pacific will t>e made public , earlv next week. A conference will he held between Mr. Moffat. Svl. T. Smith, president of the Colorado Utah Con struction company; William G. Evans,' General Manager Ridgwav and Chief Engineer Sumner. The routes surveyed will be gone over carefully and a per manent route will he selected and pub lished. This is considered the most, important announcement to he made by the com pany. Thousands of investors and land seekers are awaiting a definite state ment of the route before going into the country to he traversed by the road. The publication of the route, it is be lieved. wUi result in a big infiux of peo ple Into the country. It : » probable that with the publication of the route will conic the announce ment of the division headquarters of the road, as AMI us some of the towns to be started bv the company. This will en able homeseekers. settlers and investors to locate with the certain knowledge I that they will be on the line of the road. This announcement will he following out Mr. Moffat's idea of having the country along the road settled when the road is finished; that is, the road may begin with an earning capacity instead of taking several years for the country to settle, thus providing a revenue as is generally the case with a new railroad. It is expected that this winter will wit ness n big rush of people into the coun try. and in all probability several towns will be started at once. General Manager Htdgway has decid ed that a switchback over the mountains is unnecessary, and so it will lie a straightaway track with a 4 per cent grade for use until the tunnels are fin ished. The principal work this winter will he in the mountains in drilling tun nels ami blasting. A special rate will be matte on low-grade ores so that new mines can lie opened and ship to Denver on a profit.—Denver Rost. No Democratic editor is able to speak higher words of praise for the Demo cratic candidate for governor than the following from the pen of Col. I. N. Stevens, editor of the Colorado Springs Gflkette and manager of the Repo hi lean Stfcte Literary Bureau: “Judge Stito&on JtSn so m* respects the strongest nauit}* tioteahe Democrats could select for the position of governor. He eas developed great strength in Teller and El l*aso counties, and his persona! character and his clean record of nearly twenty years in this state commend him to the re spect of all his fellow citizens irrespec tive of politics. If the next governor of the state is to he a Democrat, a better man could not he chosen than Judge Stimson. We are glad to see the Demo crats nominating good men. with whom the interests of t lie state will be safe if they are elected.” The Salida Mail well says: “The Re publicans of Colorado are today con demning Mr. Teller for doing the very thing thev solicited am! even compelled him to do in 1800. and the thing they sav they still believe in. Nearly all Re publicans of Colorado are today bemet alists. How many Republicans are there in this state who would not shout at the news that a law had been passed for the coinage of the two metals at a ratio of 10 to 1? It can safely be said that there are not a thousand. Then why ail this fight against Mr. Teller?” ! “The impudent falsehood that trusts and monopolies cheapen products ami benefit the consumer is disproved by the fact that the price of commodities con trolled by these monsters has been arbi trarily increased for no cause except to pav dividends on fictitious capital bv methods that make larceny respecta ble.”—Senator John J. Ingalls. For first-class saddles go to Ilartlce Si Sheets.
