Established August 18, 1885. JAMES LYTTLE. Editor A Publisher. SATURDAY. MAY U. IW*. Entered In the Meeker, Colo., postofflco as second-clam* mall matter. Windy and warmer, with river rising, concludeH this week’s report on the weather—and more rain in sight, Dr. Fisher, the eye Bpecialist, filled his engagement hero and left yester day for Montrose. The doctor will return in the fall. The stormy weather subsided Mon day afternoon and was followed by a big drop of the mercury that night with a resultant hard freeze. Latest reports from Denver show that Sheriff Farnham, who is at St. Luke’s hospital, is resting easily, tho’ his condition is still serious. Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Keller had the pleasure of seeing and taking part in the battleship fleet festivities before leaving Los Angeles for home. Meeker G. A. R. post will com memorate Memorial day on the 80th in an appropriate manner, arrange ments to that end being well under The incoming Rees limited broke down near the divide Sunday last, and as a consequence tho mail came in a few hours late in a lumber wagon. Since the first of the month tho Rifle and Axial stages leave at 7 in the morning instead of 8 as they have been leaving during the winter months. A. H. Adams and family moved Thursday into the Fordham resi dence at the corner of Third and Market streets which they recently purchased. The family of Mr. L. F. Vancieave is happy over the reception of a fine Windsor concert grand piano which arrived Saturday from the factory at Ann Arbor, Mich. The matter of either cement or stone crossings for our streets is be ing seriously considered by our town dads. This move will be appreciated by the citisens generally. Measles are quite prevalent in and about town, with various degress of severity. It is said that one of the Sheridan boys has pneumonia in ad dition, and that the case is serious. The Meeker schools came to a close for the term yesterday afternoon. This is a week earlier than originally contemplated, and the usual closing exercises billed for next week were necessarily curtailed. Rain and snow fell Sunday and Monday, and as a result some of tiie crossings around town were in nearly impassable condition. On the other hand it did an incalculable amount of good on the ranches. C. M. Donell, well-known in these parts as a contractor and builder, but now a big merchant at Rifle, was registered at the Meeker Wednesday. Mr. Donell had a party of capitalists in tow, who were just looking us over. Not much interest was taken in the Meeker school election on Mon day, and yet a hundred votes were polled. T. D. Riley was reelected by a two-to-one vote over R. R. Lindow who was not an aspirant for the po sition. J. W. Rector, Robert Adams and Bart Owens, all of Rangely, attended to business matters at the county seat, early in the week. Messrs. Adams and Owens have bought the Peters cattle interests in the lower country. Shaun Kelly of New York, was at the Meeker hotel this-week after a short visit to Kelly lodge on Williams river. It is not likely his distinguished father and family will pay their customary visit to these parts this season. Quite a bunch of White river cattle men were at El Paso, Texas, during the week. Among the party were Messrs. W. S. Montgomery, Isaac Baer, J. L. McHatton, A. E. Rees and A1 Lloyd. The latter had pur chased a bunch of Mexican rangers and was ready to start north. Gordon Graham, arrived in town' Wednesday from Missouri points, - bringing in with him a car load of registered Shorthorn bulls, which can be seen at the Crawford ranch, Powell park. Anyone looking for something good in Shorthorns should embrace this opportunity to get pedi greed herd headers. County Commissioner Crawford and Clerk Scott returned Sunday evening from the meeting held in Denver to talk over the matter of compensation of water commission ers. They report a good attendance from tiie irrigation counties, and the meet resulted in tiie drafting of a bill to be presented to the next legisla ture which will correct existing faults. It provides for water com missioners’ appointment by the state engineer and the state provide for their payment. As it now is the gov ernor appoints them and the county has to foot the bill, and this has caused lots of friction. Outside parties (likely connected with the Standard Oil) are endeavor ing to obtain leases on all the pat ented ranches in the neighbornood of Rangely. The inducementA of fered the ranchmen are not very flattering for an early development of the field, the property owners be ing bound “hand and foot,’’ while the party of the second part has the option of working whenever it suits his convenience. The Rangelyites are rightly opposed to such specu lators. A difference as to the ownership of a $25 horse was threshed out in Justice Burnham's court Saturday. Lawyers’ fees, various court coi-rs, etc., will run the litigation up into the hundreds. And one man was so seriously injured by the “cayuse” in dispute that two doctors will have earned good fees for professional ser vices by the time the injured man is able to resume his usual duties. But title to the animal had to be settled someway. . W. S. Fisk departed for Forest Grove, Oregon, Thursday, to join Mrs. Fisk and the children, who have been out there for some time. In the going of Mr. Fisk, Meeker loses one of her best known citizens, he having been assistant postmaster here lor many years past, an office he filled in a very efficient manner. Luck to you. Sherman, until you and your estimable family return to White river. Fully believing that the three votes cast for him at Monday's meeting of the town board elected him as trustee. Mr. Hay took the oath of office Tuesday and filed it with the clerk. We understand Mr. Robert-v son, who was declared elected, does not care for the office and may not bother himself about the matter. The tangle will likely be straight ened out at the board’s next meeting. A. Cure, who is one of the most useful and beneficial citisens in Meeker, in that he plants trees and otherwise improves his large lot holdings, was a caller at The Her ald office the other day, and com plained of an unsanitary condition in ids neighborhood. Mr. Cure is right. Nothing of an unsanitary nature should be permitted in any part of town. Word has reached Meeker that David Steel, formerly a well known ranchmen of upper White, died in Casa .Verdugo, Cal., a couple of weeks ago. Ho was a son-in-law of Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Lakainp, and sold ranch to the Budges some six or eight yeArs ago. The family lived at Glenwood for a while, but later went to the coast. John J. Niblock, J. D. Miller and D. D. Taylor, all of whom are doing good work in placing the Flag creek region under cultivation, were town visitors duriug the week. Messrs. David Smith and W. H. Clark, returned home Wednesday after attending to political duties at Pueblo, and private duties at Denver and elsewhere. Mrs. S. M. Miller has returned from Denver where she pleasantly enjoyed herself with friends for a couple of weeks. W. H. Caywood started out this week to take another whirl- at the wolves which infest the Piceanoe country. F. A. Carstens and purtner, Billy Cunningham, of Boxelder spent a couple of days in town, during the week. Harry Ilawson, the Meeker-Rifle real estate man, spent a few days on this side during the week. Clarence Ralston, foreman for the PL company, autographed at the Meeker, Monday. W. B. Salter was among the Pow ell park visitors Saturday. Gordon OrahAin has 20 head of roistered Shorthorn bulls for sale, at Bob Crawford’s ranch, Powell park; ranging in age from l to 2 years old. Some with extra large %>one. Colors red. Half of them are fat and in good condition; the other half are thin; but all good individuals. Mr. Gra ham bought this bunch cheap,* and will sell cheap. Better call early and get the pick. It will pay you to buy one or more of these yearlings for next year and save 25 per cent on your money. The very best kind of harness oil is used by Hartke A Sheets.
