He Got What He Needed.
“Nino years ago is looked as if my time
had come,” says Mr. C. Farthing of Mill
Creek, Ind. Ter. “I was so run down that
life bung on a very slender thread. It was
then that my druggist recommended Elec
tric Bitters. I bought a bottle and got what
I needed—strength. I had one foot In the
grave, but Electric Bitters put It back on
the turf again, and I’ve been well ever
since.” Bold under guarantee by Meeker

Pain, anywhere, can be quickly stopped
by one of Ur. Hhoop’s Pink Pain Tablets.
Pain always means congestion—unnatural
blood pressure. Dr. Hhoop’s Pink Pain
Tablets simply coax congested blood away
from pain centers. These tablets—known
by druggists as Dr. Bhoop's headache tab
lets—simply equalize the blood circulation
and then pain always departs In SO minutes.

MEEKER, COLO., SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 1908.
What Johnson Has Done.
There is a growing demand for in
formation concerning Governor John
son of Minnesota. Since Johnson la
now in the race for the Democratic
presidential nomination, it la right
that the public should be supplied
with all available information con
cerning this remarkable man—a prod
uct of the common people.
A late issue of the Denver Times
(a Bryan paper) has the following
relative to some of Governor John
son's doings:
Here is a Democratic governor in a
state sternly Republican. He ia con
fronted by a legislature that in poli
tics is overwhelmingly hostile to
him. All tha rest of the state ad
ministration *ls 'Republican. He ia
alone. -Yet through this hostile leg
islation and with thepe hostile col
leagues he contrives to pass more
radical laws than exist fn any other
state, except the new-fledged Okla
homa. How does he achieve these
things? Charles Edward Russell
asks this question In April Every
body’s.
“As an example we may take the
2-cent fare bill. That was Governor
Johnson’s personal property, that
idea. The Minnesota editorial asso
ciation invited him to its annual
meeting, expecting him, I think, to
make the usual address of flubdub
and platitude. Instead he exploded
the 2-cent bomb and urged that an
end be put to the giving of free
passes. Then he talked the same
doctrine to a commercial travelers’
association. The legislature met,
and in Ms message (which was a col
lection of round shot) he asked for a
law putting his ideas into force.
Then he had such a law drawn up,
introduced and finally passed.
“He asked for a law like the Muel
ler law of Illinois, permitting muni
cipal ownership of public utilities.
He got it. He asked for a permanent
tax commission. He got it
“He asked for a rational revision of
the law taxing mortgages. He got it
“He desired to strike at the cord
age trust by so amending the existing
law that the produot of the state
twine plant in the state penitentiary
might be stfid Anywhere instead of
only in Minnesota. He got the
amendment,
“He took up the matter of insur
ance, In which he had always been
greatly interested, for he was the
originator and chairman of the con
ference of state governors at Chicago
in 1805, from.which came the mem
orable recommendations of the ‘com
mittee of fifteen.’ He desired to
have the chief features of those rec
ommendations enacted in Minnesota.
So the legislature enacted them.
“He secured the establishment of
a free state labor employment bur
eau; fought into good behavior a
powerful insurance company that
was going on badly and (best of all
his endeavors) he succeeded in abol
ishing in Minnesota that feudal mon
stosity, the fellow-servant act, by
which injured workingmen were
prevented from securing damages.”
It is a Republican strong point
that should a Democratic president
be elected there would be a dead-lock
in national legislation since both
houses of congress must be Republi
can for two years at least, says the
Mancos Times-Tribune, and then
adds the following questions: Now
both houses of congress are Republi
can, with a Republican president,
and can anyone tell us of any im
portant legislation that iias been en
acted by the present congress? What
one of the president’s reform meas
ures, so strenuously advocated by
him, lias been made law? Talk about
dead-locks, what’s the matter with
the present congress? They have not
even distributed garden seed!
Isn’t it about time for our old
friend A. B. Gray to issue a call for a
Populist Qonvention? Frank Owers
might be induced to attend as the
other delegate. Press.
A. B. lias been working with the
G. O. P. during the past few years,
but as it was generally understood
that he was in the pay of the Repub
lican machine while acting as chair
man of the Populist party, he can be
depended on to call a Populist con
vention and place a ticket in the
field—just to accommodate the Re
publican leaders.

prince, departed for “Paree” last

A Political Sensation.
Tl|o biggest polttioal sensation of
the day was sprung in Denver when
the News-Times of last Sunday came
out With the following startling an
nouncement:
Tkß News-Times to thb Repub
lic** Party:— “lt is true Speer ia
bad|£ haudicapped, but he has the
heaviest financial backing that any
Denver candidal# ever had behind
hln|* - Make no mistake in your nom
inee. Some of those won’t do at all.
It would be but to change one bad
mayor for another. But some of
them are splendid men, and can beat
this man Speer to a frassle. If you
bevo the courage and the indepen
denoe to throw over Boss Evans, and
listen to your own consciences in
naming your candidate—giving the
people a man honest, capable and un
blemished—ona who will not submit
to the dictation of Evans and the
water company, who will stand for
law enforcement, economy, push and
progress—l, in common with 86,000
good Denver cltisens, will elect him.
We cannot and will not stand for one
who ia likely to become another
Speer, but without half his ability.
The mayoralty election is in your
hands. -You can have this city of
Denver if you do your duty to the
people. If you don’t, the disap
pointed public will turn for succor to
some other organisation.”
The above account is preceded by
a cartoon in which are named the
following list of prominent Republi
cans from whom the party is to
chose in order to enlist the Patterson-
News-Times support: Temple, Cos
tigan, Hover, Pershing, Goudy, J. H.
Brown, Sc holts, Nisbet and Stidger.
Commenting on Mr. Patterson’s
latest move, the Denver Republican
of Monday says:
WHAT! FOUR MEN IN BUCKRAM?
The deposed boss of the Democratic
party is threatening to enter the Re
publican ranks—“l, in common with
86,000 good Denver cltisens.” At
first blush this might seem danger
ous and need emergency measures,
the calling out of the old guard or
some each decisive act; but the
threat la Falstafflan in its nature.
The 16,000 will dwindle to 8,600 and
on election day to 860. When this
boastful hereon was with the other
party, afteYfcavlatf “denned It,” he
marched on the enemy and lo and
behold! out of SOS precincts he se
cured two by the skin of the teeth.
If there had been “86,000 good Den
ver cltisens” to follow him in the
party with wbioh he had been asso
ciated he would not now be seeking
entrance to the G. O. P. by creeping
under the big top at feeding time.

Following is a copy of a letter
Superintendent Brown reeeived this
week from the state superintendent.
The subject matter affects a number
of the districts in this county:
Denvkb, April 9, 1906.
Mr. C. F. Brown, County Superin
tendent of Schools, Meeker.
Dear Mr. Brown:
I beg to advise you that all school
districts of the second and third
classes organised since April 4, 1867,
should elect at the annual school
election this year one president for
three years, notwithstanding the fact
that a president may have been
elected last year or the year before
for three years, since by operation of
law his term would expire this year,
and this proves true in regard to sec
retaries and treasurers.
I would further advise that you
send a notice to the school boards of
directors stating that at the annual
school election of 1908 a president
should be elected for three years, a
secretary for two years and a treas
urer for one year. This would cor
rect any irregularity in the election
of the school boards in your county.
Respectfully yours,
Katherine L. Craig,
Superintendent.
