The Bryan wave continues to grow.; The Ohio and Tennessee Democracy have decared for the Great Common er. Judge Ben Lindsey has declared himself as a candidate for the Demo cratic gubernatorial nomination. A good man, but he will have to walk till Governor Adams relinquishes the chair in 1010. Democrats, when you go Into the county convention next Thursday remember Judge Shumate, the 'abla jurist and upright judge. Regardless of politics, this county wants Judge Shumate retained on the diatom] bench. Senator Patterson says there wHI be no occasion for an independent ticket if the Democratic state con vention will do what it ought to—id other words, what Mr. Patterson wants it to do. But if it doesn’t, then what? Why, the usual Patterson bolt, of course. The more we study the judicial’ situation, the more we are oonvineegt that the approaching state convention will do a wise aft if it selects Samuel N. Wheeler fs one of its candidates for the suprsflie bench. Judge Wheeler is a man Of integrity and marked legal ablliftr, I such a man as is wanted on the •w supreme bench. We are indebted to the publishing house of Henry Altemus Company, Philadelphia, for a copy of “The Packers, the Private-Car Lines and the People,” by Mr. J. Ogden Ar mour, head of the beef trust Those of our readers who wish to hear the packers’ side of the beef question should send $1.60 to the Altmus Com pany and get the Armour book. Governor McDonald has formally declined to be a candidate to suocosd himself. In this act the governor shows that he is amply endowed with that wisdom for wbioh bis Scotch anoestry is famous. The cir cumstances surroqnding Mr. Mc- Donald’s elevation to the guberna torial chair were such . that any] Democrat could beat him ip tbeap-> proaohing campaign. Things political are becoming very warm in Denver, especially in the Democratic camps there are two of them down there the regular (Speer) and the Irregular (Patter son). After standing the Patterson tirades of abuse and misrepresenta tion for years in silence, Mayor Speer lias finally turned loose on the senator and is ripping him up the back and down the sides in a very effective manner. When interviewed In Denver the other day, by a Pueblo Chieftain re porter, Governor Adams declared : “I expect the Democratic state con vention to choose the party’s candi date for governor. If that conven tion nominates me I shall accept the nomination and do my best to be elected.” This declaration has the right' ring to It and settles the ques tion as to who will be the Democratic nominee for governor. Judge Ben Lindsey is out in an other lengthy communication in which he virtually demands the nomination of governor at the hands of the forthcoming Democratic state convention, and in default of same announces that he will run as an in dependent. “Little Ben” is evidently “off” in political ethics, but we ad mire his courage in braving the wrath of Boss Patterson, who told him he should not run for governor. Although on the eve of the county convention, candidates seem shy in announcing themselves. However 1 we hear of one exception. James W. ; Bainbrich, jr., of upper Piceance, has announced himself for assessor. Mr. ; Bainbrich is a young man of ability j and in every way well qualified to J flill the assessor’s office in a manner satisfactory to the taxpayers. Of the numerous candidates that will be be fore the Democratic convention this time, he will be one of the strongest. What irreverend Republicans call “The Yellow Combine”—the Denver News, Times and Post—has been broken. The partingof the ways came when Senator Patterson and his two papers decried Judge Lindsey’s gu- 1 bematorial aspirations. Next to “Chairman Peabody Bailey,” “Little Ben,” is the Post’s pet candidate. And now the saintly Patterson is getting it hot and heavy from his late colleagues the Bonflls-Tainmen outfit. The editor of The Hebaj.d ac knowledges receipt of appointment »s a delegate or representative from i the state of Colorado to the reception to be tendered Hon. William Jen nings Bryan at Madison Square garden, New York, on his return from abroad. We highly appreciate the honor conferred on us by national committeeman, «Hon. John I. Mul lins, but much as we would like to do homage to the next president of this great republic, like most cuntry editors, our usual case of impecuni osity stands in the way. Boosting A Good Thing. The last issue of the Glenwood Av alanche contains the following, every word of which is true: “Ezra Fleming is back from a visit Ito his old stamping grounds in Rio Blanco county. Said Mr. Fleming to a reporter for the Avalanche, ‘I never saw such a change as there has been in the old town of Meeker. Many houses have been put up and so many improvements have taken place that I could scarcely recognise the place. # I tell you Moeker Is a great place and has a very bright future before It. “‘I noticed that the farm area of the county has extended away be yond what it was when I was there. I saw some of the finest crops grow ing on land that I did not think it was possible to get water on. And such crops! I don’t think they can beat them in any other place in this state. The land is very rich in Rio Blanco county and all you have to do is to get water on it and you are fixed for life. “ ‘I saw a wonderful thing on the state road going infco Meeker. You know there is a very large amount of dry land that no ditch could be built to. Well they were raising the finest oats, wheat and potatoes on this land that I have ever seen. There is no water there and no way to get it and I never thought this could be done. “ ‘They tell me over there that they have more flour stored than they can use for the next year and when they get the large crop they have growing in they will he more than loaded. I look for Rio Blanco to be one of the leading agricultural counties in the state and I never thought I would live to see it. Live stock was all we jiad toJljra «ra when. I was there and you never heard any predicting that the county would be an agricul tural county.’ ” A Hard Jolt for Patterson. The sensation of the week-end in Denver was the Thomas communica tion on the Democratic split in that city. No doubt believing that Former Governor Thomas would espouse his side of the fight that is now threat ening the life of the Colorado Demo cracy Editor-Senator-Patfcerson in vited Mr. Thomas to make known his views on the situation, but to the evident surprise and chagrin of Mr. Patterson, the former came out squarely in support of the regular Democratic organization. The Thomas communication is a scathing arraignment of Patterson and his rule or ruin policy. Governor Thomas goes into Patterson’s politi cal career for the past ten or fifteen years and shows that he has wrecked every man, party or cause that stood in his way. In a wor<|—the Populist and Democratic parties and reform movements have all been used to further Patterson’s personal am bitions and spites against inen and measures he couldn’t use or control. Senator Patterson attempts to re ply to Mr. Thomas, but his plethora of .words of ambiguous meaning and garbled quotations make a sorry showing longside the Thomas phil ippic. This is once Mr. Patterson mis laid his usual cunning and got caught in the trap he set for others. See last Sunday’s Denver papers for the full text of the Thomas-Pat ■ terson communications. A Fine Thresher. Messrs. Fred Riley and Ous Merritt got their fine new Case separator and traction engine in Wednesday. The traction engine is an Avery 22- horse power engine and will be used in heavy hauling (such as lumber) as well as for lugging the separator over the country. The latter has all of the latest improvements. Base Ball. Teams representing Powell Park and Thornburg will play for a purse in Meeker on Monday (Labor Day). A good game is expected as both teams have been practicing. A dance in honor of the two teams will be given at court house hall in the evening. Everybody invited. Milch Cows for Sale.
