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
“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
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
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
. 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
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.
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.
