Age Not Always Essential. The Democratic nomination for congress in the Second district un questionably lies between Dr. W. W. Rowan, of Ouray, and Hume Lewis, of Pueblo, as no one else of conse quence is after it and both of these gentlemen are not only qualified but are entitled to recognition from the party for past services and sacrifices. Either one will be a credit to Colora do in congress, so the constituency is safe whichever gets the plum. Appropos of Mr. Lewis’ candidacy a good story can be told: He is but 88 years ok! and does not look that, so it has been questioned as to whether he is not too young for such an iinportaAt position. The King of Spain once sent an ambassador to the Pope of Rome, and while the young man was one of the brainiest states men in Spain and recognised as such' he was young. The Pope was much put outat the youthful ambassador and said: “Is your master the King so short of statesmen that he must send me a beardless boy as an am bassador?” To which the young man replied: “If my master the King had supposed that brains lie in a beard he might have sent your ex cellency a goat.” “Hard Sledding." According to the Steamboat Pilot Ike Baer’s path in the race for re nomination will not be strewn with roses. Hear what the Pilot has to say: “Ikey Baer is going to have hard sledding, that’s a cinch. The party fails to enthuse like it should, al though longing eyes are turned to ward the barrel. Solandt’s friends are active and earnest in their desire to see the nomination go to the Hay den man. Baer’s record in the legis lature, where he slavishly followed the dictation of the bosses and aided by his vote and influence in as dam nable a political conspiracy as ever brought shame to a state, overturn ing the expressed will of the people, violating the sanctity of the ballot and setting decency and justice at naught in the governorship matter, is enough to relegate any man to the limbo of political oblivion. The fin ger of soorn has been pointed at our state and Colorado has become a word of shame through the revolu tionary actions of such men as Baer. Even those men and corporations who profited by the shameless deal should have nothing but contempt for the men who brought it about.” Cattle Going Higher. The W. N. Fulton letter under Denver date of last Monday, reports the improvement in the cattle mar ket during the past three weeks has been most marked. The past week was very little different from the week before. There was a scarcity of good cattle of all kinds and buyers were willing to stand a slight ad vance where the cattle were good enough. Even the common kinds have felt the improved conditions and while buyers still discriminate strongly against the common and half fat, still they are selling and that is. more than could have been said of them a month ago. Beef buyers are securing barely enough supplies to keep them going and the demand for choice cattle seems to be getting stronger everyday. There have been plenty of half fat and unfinished stuff offered and these are only steady. Choice steers and cows are wanted. There was nothing here during the past week good enough to bring over $4.80, and there was nothing offered except grass cattle. Good cows sold up to $3.50 with the average cows go ing around SB.OO to $3.26. There lias been no movement in feeder cattle yet although a few contracts are be ing made occasionally but the only reason for lack of trade is the non appearance of the cattle. The buyers are here and they want the cattle but the packers are taking about every thing that comes that is fit to kill. Good to choice feeders will sell at $8.76 to $4.10 with the common to medium at $8.25 to $3.75 and the ortji nary thin stuff at 8 cents and down. With the big corn crop in sight there are indications of a strong demand later on but prices will be governed largely by the price of corn. Seventy Millions Increased Profits. How the trusts and combines are plundering the American people is shown by the enormous profits made this year by the Steel Trust. Every one pays their share of the vast toll that this gigantic combination takes from the grist run through its hop per. "On March 8, 1887” says the New York World, “just before the party of high prices took possession of the government, and when there was no Steel Trust, American steel rails were selling in the market at $lB to S2O per ton. Foreigners can still get them for that, but Americans have to pay the trust s2H—an increase of from 40 to 50 per cent. The trust has maintained the S2B rate for home consumers without variation since it was organized, representing a net in crease of profits of over $70,000,000 above a normal amount for that time. And Mr. Mbrgan enthusiastically stands pat’ for the retention in power of an administration that stands for so much prosperity.” Do not imagine that because you have no railroad stock, or even if you never rode on a steam or street rail road that the prices of steel rails does not effect your pocket. In fact every thing you buy is advanced in price by the freight that is charged for we cannot expect low railroad rates and expenHive railroad construction. Then just think of the large number of articles of steel or iron that you daily use, all of which are greatly in creased in price by the extra toll the Steel Trust takes, because the pro tection from competition the tariff gives the trust allows it to extort these high prices. This toll Is nearly $lO a year from each family, from, this one trust and there are 186 of them protected by the tariff in like manner. Passes Away. Frederick J. Downey, a young man who came here from New York some weeks ago, in the hope that this fav orable climate would stay the dread malady, consumption, from which he was suffering, died at the resi dence of J. L. Beavers Tuesday even ing. The young man’s father, Mr. Den nis Downey, of Brooklyn, N. Y., at tended him in his last hours. Brief services were held at the residence of Mr. Childs, Thursday afternoon, after which the remains were conveyed to Highland ceme tery for final rest. Deceased was a young man of good character and a member of a respect ed New York family. When the untimely call came he was in his twenty-first year. He had been ill only about six months. Quick consumption was the cause of death. . Although a stranger here, a large number of citlsens attended the fun eral and every manifestation of re spect and sympathy was shown the bereaved relatives of the departed. Reckless Riding. . On complaint of J. W. Rigby, W. Guyther, D. Murray and C. Mallay were arrested Monday and hailed be fore Mr. Justice Sanderson. Defendants had a hearing Tuesday morning before the justice but had no attorney, nor did they make any defense. The testimony went to show that Mr. Rigby was riding down the river road when he met the three young men going Yip the road. Guyther, it is claimed, rode his horse with much violence against the Rigby horse, and, it is claimed, tried to throw Mr. Rigby. Guyther was fined $lO and costs which he paid. It is said, the cause of his misbehavior was a few drinks more than necessary. A little sur plus “bug juice” is hardly an excuse for an ungentlemanly act. The other boys were fined $2 and costs, but they didn’t think they had done anything that would cause them to figure in the case, so they have taken an appeal to the county court. Heavy Earthquake Shocks. Late dispatches state that heavy earthquake shocks occurred at Val paraiso and other points along the coast of South America at intervals during Thursday night, Aug. 16, and damaged a number of buildings, some of them falling into the streets and rendering trafle dangerous. The troops were called out and shot all pillagers. Many persons were killed by falling walls. The survivors camped on the hills and in open spaces. A number of people also sought refuge on board vessels in the harbor at Valparaiso. Vina del Mar, a town about three miles from Valparaiso, having a pop ulation of about 12,000; Quilpque, province of Valparaiso, with a popu lation of about 4,000, and Limache, twenty-five miles from Valparaiso, population of about 4,000, are reported to be in ruins. Several hundred peo ple killed and the loss estimated be tween $60,000,000 and a $100,000,000. Closing Out. Coltharp Brothers of Rangely, are closing out their business at that place, and all who are indebted to the firm are requested to call immediate ly and settle their accouhts either by cash or bankable notes.
