Church Play
The presentation of the mystery
play, “Two Litle Pilgrims and the
Book Beloved,” was an event long to
be remembered as it iiad never before
been given in western Colorado. In
spite of the stormy night which kept
many from attending a good number

tional, reverent and while in
structive the manner in which it was
presented was so beautiful and in
teresting, the attention of the
audience was held throughout. The

Those who took part in drilling the
play were Mrs. Bacon, Mrs. Garrison
and John M. Horton. Margaret
Taylor sang the various hymns in
her usual sweet manner, adding
much to ttie understanding of the
play. Mrs. Evans acted as organist
with consummate skill.
The costumes of those partici
pating, the beautiful decorations, the
lighted alter, the mystic cross, to
gether with the sweet solemnity
which pervaded it make the scene
one long to bo remembered.
The Right Kind of a Progressive
Responding to the greetings of a
deputation of the Democratic Na
tional committee, the other day.
Governor Marshall, nominee for vice
president, made the following states
manlike declaration:
“There are many kinds of ‘pro
gressives’ nowadays. One believes in
taking the tariff off lowa products
and putting it on Indiana products,
and another supports the opposite
policy. I am not that kind of a
progressive. But if the term means
to believe that the Democratic party
should meet changing conditions in
protecting ttie people against the
special interests, I am progressive.”
The above shows that the Indiana
statesman is the right kind of a
progressive, and not a mouthy grand
stand player, like some of our alleged
In 1852 the Whigs did not realize
that their party was dead until
they received an invitation to the
funeral in November of that year.
History is about to repeat itself.
The Editorial Outing
The members of the Colorado Ed
itorial Association had their annual
summer meeting and outing at
Steamboat Springs this year.
Including the editors of moat of the
state papers and their immediate
families, were the representatives of
all the big city papers, and the party
all told numbered between three and
four hundred people.
The many pleasant features of the
trip will long remain a green spot in
the memories of all who participated
in the outing.
Leaving Denver on the morning of
July 7, the green fields, high grade
stock of all kinds, and comfortable
looking homes of the farmers who
live along the route of the Moffat
Road to the foothills, presented
many pleasing Beenes. As the road
winds through picturesque South
Boulder canon—darting in and out of
numerous short tunnels, a succession
of scenis beauties is revealed.
Up to Corona, “the top of the
world.” (altitude nearly 1,200 feet
above sea level), an ever interesting
scenic panorama of gulch, gorge, pine
clad mountain and snow capped peak
is presented.
The scenery on both the eastern
and western slope of the Sierra
Madre (the main range of the
Rockies) is grand and in places
inspiring. No pen can adequately
describe it; it must be seen to be ap
preciated iu all its sublimity.
The ride down the western slope
into Fraser valley and upper Grand
presents many scenic beauties, com
prising rich meadow lands, verdue
covered hills and rugged mountains.
Reaching Hot Sulphur Springs, a
hearty welcome was extended to the
“pencil pushers” and their families.
A committee of leading citizens
escorted the editors from the station
to a grassy knoll at the edge of town
where a fine spread of baked trout
and everything else good to ent was
in readiness, prepared by the good
people of the town, and to which full
justice was done. The new mammoth
bathing pool was also placed at the
disposal of the visitors. Many took
advantage of the courtesy, after
which three cheers were given for
Sulphur Springs and its hospitable
citizens, thjpn out
~ Ayers land Gore canons were the
next points of interest. Of Colorado’s
many canons none possess greater
'scenic grandeur than the Gore. After
passing4>ut of the canon, the engine
gave out necessitatinga wait of about
four hours for another engine, whicii
was dispatched with all haste from
Oak Creek. Not a grouch or com
plaint was heard as a consequence of
the unexpected delay. The time was
spent in telling stories, singing and
general merrymaking.
On arriving at Yampa, a commit
tee headed by the always genial Ham
G. Adams of Steamboat, boarded the
train, and proceeded to arrange for
the accommodation of every one of
the three hundred and fifty odd
visitors to the Routt county me
tropolis. Arriving at Steamboat,
committees of citizens, autos and
rigs of all description were on hand
at the station to conduct the visitors
to their assignments at the hotels
and private homes.
This feature was a new one, and
one of the most perfect and satis
factory that we have ever seen de
vised for taking care of a large crowd,
it was carried out with promptness
and worked to perfection. Steamboat.
Springs is to be congratulated on its
The civil offlcers.and citizens of
this beautiful resort town had ar
ranged an elaborate program of en
tertainment for the visitors. At the
bath houses, various springs and
lame hot swimming pools (in doom
and out doors) the legend was writ
ten, “Welcome, Knights of the Quill;
this Place Belongs to You.” Autos,
carriages and tallyhos were free and
at the disposal of all to visit the
many points of interest in and around
Steamboat. Committees and guides
were always in readiness to escort
the town’s guests to ail places of
interest, such as the famous boiling
spring north of the city, the fish
hatchery and the strawberry fields.
The capsheaf of the program, how
ever, was the flsh fry and big feed of
the famous Steamboat strawberries
tendered by the citizens on Monday
afternoon. That evening a grand
hall was given in honor of the visit
ing scribes and their wives and
sweethearts. One good old time was
had by all.
After two days full of enjoyment the
quill drivers left Steamboat, regret
ting that their stay could not be pro
longed and iotid in their praise of the
townand its hospitablepeople—partic
ularly tile newspaper boys—Charley
Leckenby and Del Gee of the Pilot,
John Weiskopf of the Sentinel, and
Sam Adams and his estimable wife,
all of whom were tireless in seeing j
that the strangers within their gates
had a good time.
On the homeward trip, brief stops
were made to view the Oak Hills
property of tiie Moffat Coal company
and at the flourishing mining town of
Oak Croek.
Of the many good times and de
lightful surprises sprung on the
editors during tiie trip, the small
cattle growing and fanning town of
Yampa, located in southeastern
Routt'county, near the headwaters
of Yampa river, carried off tiie palm.
It was on tiie program that tiie
party would be treated to a chicken
dioner at this place. Arriving at
Yampa on time tiie train was met by
a reception committee, a fine brass
band, a cavalcade of well mounted
cowboys, carriages and rigs sufficient
to convey tiie party to a shady grove
at the edge of town, where was
served about the swellest spread it
has ever been our good fortune to go
up against. Tiie bountiful supply of
delieious roast chicken was only one
of [the component parts of tiie
banquet. And tiie manner of its
serving could not have been im
proved on. Til is flue spread was
topped witli punch and cigars for tiie
men, and floral offerings for the
ladles. Suffice it to say, “Yampa
on-the-Bear” and its people will long
remain a bright memory in the
minds of the Colorado editors and
their ladies.
Among the citizens who seemed to
be leaders iu this happy and well
carried out affair were Mayor Van
Camp, W. H. Burnside, Sam Reid,
Arnold Powell, John W. and I)r.
