M. K. Parsons, bead of tbs Keystone outfit of this oounty, was sleeted president of tbe new—or Pinobot polioy < association.

Can Stay Off the Claim in Winter A Waablngton dispatch says con gress has passed tbe bill extending tbe time for bomeeteedere in Colo rado, Utah sod other weetern states to establish residence upon their lands. 1 It was doe to tbe efforts of the Colorado delegation In congress that homesteaders in this'state will re ceive tbe benefit of thle liberal and very beneficial law. The act allows settlers, during the winter months, a leave d absence without Invalidating tb«s7 olalms of actual residence upon tbelr entries. Tbe parliamentary elections t in Great Britain are showing some sur prising gains fay tbe opposition (the Unionist party). Up to date the Unionists have gained nearly a hun dred seats, bat It ie likely that tbe Liberals will control the incoming government Tbe dispatches announce that nine persons perished In tbe enow storms and bllasaide which visited New York latter part of last week. Other north Atlantic coast sections suffered In tbe same ratio. Eight men are dead aa a result of Inhaling tbe deadly fumes from giaqt powder Masts in the Gunnison tun nel.

Tbe stork left a boy at the fireside of Mr. and Mrs. Bert Emmonde Theraday. Dr. Montgomery in at tendance aad all well. When the Pilot, a few weeks Ago, mentioned the fact that Dr. B. L. Jefferson, register of the state board of land commissioners, would be a winner as the Democratic candidate for governor, it was with no inten tion of starting a boom for the Routt county man. The statement was made in connection with a comment upon the declaration of Senator Charles B. Ward that under no con sideration would he be a candidate for the nomination. But the sugges tion met with such hearty and spon taneous approval by many of the Democratic editors of the state that Dr. Jefferson appears now to be the logical man for the honor. He was second in the race 1008 and wwe beaten only by a fluke. He made good as state senator, and he is mak ing good as register of the land board, and he would make good aa governor.—Steamboat Pilot Religious Toleration Rosa Cummings, a Breokenrldge high school girl, defines religious toleration aa follows: Religious toleration Is the right of any individual to think and believe as he pleases as long as he does not violate the laws of the country In which he lives. In Mediaeval times people were very narrow minded and they thought they should believe Just what the churoh said and believed because their ancestors believed It The Renaissance was the main cause that brought toleration, but it took people many centuries to see that there was no harm In toleration. The benefit of today la that people give their Ideas of religion which makes others think and gives them new views and ideas and makes the re ligion that is prominent better. “Bed Winter Alright” A new settler has been keeping a diary, and needlesa to say bas been giving some attention to the weather.
