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 Drug Co. 60c. Subscribe for The Herald.

Congress is acting as though Roose velt is not likely to succeed himself. It has lately turned down all his pet measures. The senate has passed the bill en larging arid homesteads to 820 acres. A similar bill has been favorably re ported by the house committee on public lands and is on the house cal endar with good prospects of passage when there is a settlement of the fili bustering now going on. The Steamboat Sentinel and the Yampa Leader both strongly endorse The Herald's late remarks anent getting back to old line party tickets in town elections. While Meeker has had no bad results from citizens* tickets up to date, it is probably only a question of time until ill feeling would arise as was evident in the late town contests in Yampa river towns. What we have been looking for for some time has come to pass. A literary bureau, in the interest of the' 1 nomination of Roosevelt, has been established at Washington and The Herald is in receipt of the first ‘.‘batch” of “reading matter” in ad vocacy of another term for our stren uous president. The G. O. P. has our permission to go ahead and nomiate Mr. Roosevelt We can beat him With Bryan, Johnson or any other good Democrat Republicans Alarmed. News comes from Washington that the Republican leaders are trembling lor Republican success in the coming presidential campaign. They realize that the robber tariff on steel rails that enable the steel trust to sell rails abroad at several dollare per ton less than at home is a handicap to railroad building for which the Republican party is strictly respon sible. The Idea of protecting a great trust against foreign competition, when it is underselling foreign ers on their own soil, is so foolish and so iniquitous that common-sense Republicans as well as Democrats are sorely tired of it, and the Idea of the Republicans who have had eleven years of power to reform the tariff going into the campaign “promising it” as a fruit of their next triumph if they can get it They will reform it upwards if any way. Still further the Republi can press like all others Is fighting mad about the high robber tariff on paper pulp, which enables the paper trust to rob them unmercifully. These indeed be unhapoy times for the G. O. P. elephant. The worm is going to turn. Stock Association Meeting. The regular meeting of the White River Stock Growers’ association was held last Tuesday afternoon in the county clerk’s office, with a fair attendance. Reports from the secretary and treasurer were submitted and later approved. They showed a balance of $77.49 on hand. C. H. Wolcott was added to the membership. The executive committee was in structed to see to the collection of dues. Election of officers was taken up with the following result: President—B F Montgomery. Vice-President —Thomas Kllduff. Treasurer—A B Critchlow. Secretary—J L Riland. Executive Committee —The presi dent and vice-president with Jas C Gentry, W A Keller and R Oldland. The north side round-up will com mence at Skull creek May Ist. Too Fast. Sheriff Ellison placed Merl Lyman and Jim Coltharp under arrest at Rangely Tuesday and brought the boys to town Thursday. The charge against the boys is passing worthless checks. It seems that the Lyman boy stole a team belonging to h!s father and sold it. The check given in payment was stopped. The young man issued checks against his supposed bank ac count. At Rifle Perry Spurlock en dorsed one of these checks; hence is complaining witness in the case. Jim Coltharp was taken In charge and held as a witness to the various transactions. A Mark of Gratitude. We desire to extend our deepest gratitude to the kind friends and neighbors who so generously tender ed their aid at funeral of our brother, M. L. Sandy. We especially wish to thank Mr. Thomas Kllduff for his services in tiie hour of our affliction. Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Nielsen. ♦ Craig has voted to become an in corporated town. Death of Dave Rusk. On Wednesday, Manager Moulton, of the Hugus oqmpany, received an nouncement of the death of D. L. Roak, cashier of the Bank of Palisade, mml one of the oldest employes of the Hugos company and large stock holder, which occurred on that morn ing, death being due to pneumonia. Tile funeral took place yesterday afternoon, and as a mark of respect to the memory of deceased and his family, the various Hugus banks and stores were closed from 2 to 4 p. m. Mr. Rusk was one of oldest resi dents of Wyoming, and was promi nent In the business, social and pol ■«*» life of that state before removing from there to take charge of the Bank of Palisade when the Hugus business was established there. He was a man of the highest character and the company he represented, nutoarous friends in two states, a wife and three children mourn his loss.' Taylor, the ailedged wife-murderer, on trial at Glenwood Springs during the past week, was found guilty of murder in the second degree, the evidence against him being circum stantial. At their city convention last Tues day, the Denver Republicans placed a full municipal ticket in the field, headsd by Horace Phelps, a promi nent young lawyer. To Bore for Oil. Last week’s Vernal Express says that C. H. Judd, a capitalist from Los Angeles, California, who has been In that section of Utah looking over the oil fields has returned to his botnd. He was much pleased at the indtofttlons, in fact so much pleased that jle has leased a large acreage of oil lands in the vicinity of Powder Springs, fourteen miles from Jensen, on other side of Green river. It is thought that the land in question is on the Rangely oil belt Thtp land is controlled by Vernal and California people. The local psopfci Interested include M. C. TfrfMpM, King Lewis, Jess Hainline, ML jl. .Maddox, John Caldwell, Mason Caldwell, George Decker, Prank Deeker, George Billings and a number of others. The lease is to extend over a period of twenty-five years. It is given otit on good authority that Mr. Judd intends to ship ma chinery this summer and that not later than next September he will begin sinking a well. School Election May 4, 1908. On above date all persons that are qualified and Interested in schools should get out and vote. Put no one on the school board who has an ax to grind. Any person that aspires to get on a school board for the purpose of hiring an incompetent teacher, or discharg ing a competent one through per sonal, political or church prejudice, is an “undesirable citizen.” The person that cannot see a pub lic wrong so long as his whims and caprices are treated with respect by teachers, Is a very poor individual on a school board. The person that wants to be a member of the school board for/vhat he can indirectly make out of it Is not a public spirited citizen. A member of a school board should be broad minded and recognize right and justice as something more than that which the law compels him to do. Finally justice and right is not doing something for your own benefit because the law cannot reach you. Neither is it to do something to the detriment of others because the law can not make you do justice. Hie law gives school directors great latitude in the use of judgment. This is for the sake of justice, not oppression. Do right is not the “big stick.” Do right is not “don’t get caught” Do right on the school board Is not do only what the law compels you to do or not to do. Yours very truly, C. F. Brown, Supt Schools. An Unusual Opportunity.
