Work on tlie^Moffat Short line com menced on Jan. 2. The clearing away of rock in South Boulder Creek ('anon Ik the 11 rat tank. The Denver Republican of Jtui. 2 contain* the following concerning the work: “A allot, which will he of a* much historical importance to Colorado a* wn* the first gun at Fort Sump ter to the world two wore of year* ago will be fired today in Boulder canon when the first blast, of |>ow der to remove the rock for the new roadlted willanounco the comuieuc inent of the construction work on the new Denver, Northwestern & Pacific railroad. The shot. wUI murk the liogiimingof hi*enterprise" which will unite two vast empire# with hands of steel. It l* fitting that tluMictual commencing of the work on the now road should be un dertaken on the first working day of the now year. •‘Gangs of men have been busy for the past week making prepara tions for commencing work on the rood. Camps have been built along the line for the men who will do the manual labor o*l the read nnd de pots of supplies have been e*tab lished. There are about twenty of these depots along the 19 1-2 miles to be constructed by the firm of Or man & Crook. “The number of men that will be gin work today will l>c compara tively small. Several hundred inen and probably three times as many horses will beat work carrying sup plies back and forth. A great, deal of preliminary rock blasting will have to be done before the full force of men cun bo put to work; then more than 2,000 men will Vie em ployed constantly on the section to be built l>y Onnan & Crook. “Work on the second half of the first section of the road will not be commenced until some time next week. The outfits which the firm of Good A Co. will use have been employed on work in Texas and have not yet reached Colorado. They will arrive in a day or two. “Ornmn A Crook will do three kinds of wor| at once. On the first division simple grading, cutting and filling is i'equlred across the* plain from the end of the present constructed grade of the Denver A Northwestern road to the foothills. The next division skirts the foot hills and there rock blasting and much easy grading will be done. Ou the third division the roadbed will bo built almost wholly in the solid rock. “The principal supply depot of this Arm is at Marshall, Colo., 011 the line of the Colorado A Southern rood, directly opposite the mouth of Boulder canon.” Doesn’t Mention Indians. State Game Warden Harris has is sued a statement in which he says it is not the true sportsman that slaught ers the game but market hunters. In his annual report to the legislature he will urge them to provide either the allowing the state an appeal fn cases where the game laws are al leged to have been violated or for a change of venue. He says tlfe ad vance of civilization is confining the range of the game to smaller areas and at the same time man has in creased his efficiency to kill nnd take a thousand fold, until the game hog has been evolved. It is hoped that decisive steps will will be taken at. the present session of the legislature for better protection of our game or soon the large game of the state will I>e a thing of the past. A Good Scheme. There is a inouement on foot to es tablish a bureau of immigration in this state and the suggestion is meet ing with general approvaL It would be the duty of this* bureau to gather accurate data concerning the resources of the state and publish it In attractive form for distribution among eastern people. Such a move would be an excellent one and would result in the attraction of numerous people with capital to this state which It would otherwise lose. A Healthy Climate. The death of the Morgau baby is but the second death in tills county in over seven months. We doubt if there is another county in the state can show so good a record. Colorado is noted for its climate, and that produced in Rio Blanco is the best the state affords. Fact. Here’s a Snap.

Now and then wc hear someone telling what a benefit the Moffat road will be, as it will create a market. Just so, hut how about, the market now? What have you to sell? Wheat is worth $1 a bushel. How much have you to sell at that price? Oats are crawling up to $2 per hun dred. Have you any to sell—fir can’t you afford to raise oats at that, price? How much surplus pork, bacon or lard did you raise—there’s tons of it shipped into this valley every year? Have you got any eggs to sell at thirty cents a dozen? Better let them |go now, and give your hens a little extra care. Hay Is worth $5 a ton in the stack nnd mighty scarce at that. Are you going to raise hay and grain next year, or are you figuring on making big money with your teams working on the grade of the Moffat road? Bet ter stay at home and work your farm for all there is in it, and let th«» other fellow pay you at the rate of s2oa ton for bailed hay and three cents a pound for oats to feed his team while working on the grade.
