Prospective Candidates
Prospective candidates in nearly
all of the counties are announcing
themastvea for vartOQs offices, con
formatory to the new primary law.
In our neighboring counties to the
north, Routt and Moffat—over a
dosen Democratic candidates are an
nounced in regular form in the Pilot,
Leader and Empire, the Democratic
papers of these counties; a like
number are announced in Garfield
In this county, however, prospec
tive candidates seem to be timid in
casting their top tog into the political
ring, and, so far there are only two
regularly announced candidates—one
Democrat and one Republican. It
will probably take one or more elec
tions to get office holders and pros
pective office holders used to the new
order of things.
As above noted, while candidates
are shy, their friends are not. Both
seasoned and green political timber
for local use Is being inspected, and
from today on available material to
fill and county and district offices
will be discussed.
It is conceded on all sides that this
is a Democratic year, and there is no
lack of good material from which to
select a local ticket.
There are two commissioners to be
elected —successors to Messrs. Baker
and Bussell. We haven’t the re
motest idea as to who the G. O. P.
leaders will trot out for these im
portant offices, but the names most
talked of among Democrats, are, for
the Buford district, J. B. Nimerick,
former Commissioner Thos Kilduff,
L. P. Craig and Charley Bloomfield.
In the Meeker district, the 'names of
Otto Metsger, L. L. Devlin, B. C.
Howey and Bert Salter (of Powell
park), are being urged by respective
For the important office of clerk
and recorder, as will be seen In an
other column, Mr. F. N. JoHantgen
is a regularly announced candidate.
“Jo” is an old-timer in the county,
popular and well qualified to fill the
position if he secures the nomination.
The many friends of Claude Wilson
are urging him to run for this posi
tion, believing that the old cry, “Oh,
he’s holding a good job now (book
keeper at Oldland’s) cannot again be
made to do good work against him.
A break down caused Claude to quit
his position at Oldlatid’s early the
past spring. He is now doing the
granger act on his dry farm up on
Flag creek.
Mayor C. F. Brown is the only
Democratic name we have heard men
tioned for treasurer* There will
probably he others by the time the
tenth day of September rolls round.
For assessor the names of Fletcher
Hay, George Aicher and J. W.
Balnbrich are talked of.
The sheriff’s office is an important
one. R G. Lyon and R. H. Wear
are urged to go before the primary-
It is probable that they will do so.
Not muoh It being said, about
legislative offices. Nobody Mem to
want the office of representatlye from
this district
The present senator from this dis
trict, Hen. B. T. Napier will likely
be a candidate for nomination. W.
S. Montgomery of this place is also
urged to be a candidate.
And, of course—Jim Gentry will he

Good Roads
C. P. Allen, president of the state
highway commission, arrived In
Meeker last Saturday afternoon on a
tour of inspection of the route of the
proposed transcontinental highway,
through this part of Colorado.
Mr. Allen was met at Rifle and
brought over to Meeker by Perry
Spurlock in Ills passenger auto.
Arriving here, the commissioner
was met by the committee of citizens
appointed some time ago to conduct
him to the Utah line. The commit
tee, which was composed of Messrs.
W. H. Clark, A. C. Moulton, R Old
land, Isaac Baer, L. B. Walbridge
and F. E. Sheridan, entertained Mr.
Allen at dinner at the Meeker hotel
in the evening, and a number of our
citizens, interested in good roads,
were invited to meet him there.
Mr. Allen briefly outlined the work
of the Colorado Highway commis
sion, and said, among other thiugs,
that as soon as state funds, now tied
up, were released, it was the purpose
of the commission to help every part
of Colorado in the laudable work of
building good roads. He said the
Utah authorities seemed to favor the
Ashley valley-White river-Meeker-
Rifle route for the continental high
way, and that he would give this
route thorough inspection as to its
practicability before returning to
The above named committee es
corted Mr. Allen in autos to Bangely
Sunday morning. On arriving there
(by previous arrangement) they
found a committee of five prominent
Utah men with autos and rigs ready
to escort Mr. Allen to the end of his
trip in Utah. Messrs. Baer and Wal
bridge, accompanied the commis
sioner to Vernal, the other members
of the Rio Blanco committee, having
fulfilled their mission returned to
Meeker Tuesday.
At Vernal Mr. Allen will meet the
governor of Utah and other high
officials, all of whom favor the
White river or water grade as a link
in the transcontinental highway.
The campaign for good roads is
now on in real earnest, with every
promise of ultimate success.

Don’t Trouble
There’s a saying old and rusty,
But as good as any new;
’Tis “Never trouble trouble
Till trouble troubles you.”
Don’t you borrow sorrow;
Wait ti(l ’tis at the door,
For he who runs to meet it
Takes up the load before.
If minding will not mend it,
Then better not to mind;
The best thing is to end it;
Just leave it all behind.
Then don’t you trouble trouble
Till trouble troubles you,
You’ll only double trouble
And trouble others, too.

Deafness Cannot be Cured
uv local applications, as they cannot reach the
diseased portions of the car. There is only one
way to cure deafness, and that Is by constitu
tional remedies. Deafness is caused by an In
flamed condition of tho mucuous lining of the
Fustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed
you have a rftmbling sound or Imperfect hear
ing, and when it is entirely closed. Deafness is
the result, and unless the Inflammation can !>o
taken out and restored to Its normal condition,
hearing will bo destroyed forever; nine caaiw
out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is
nothing but an inflamed conditiou of the muo
uous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for any
ease of deafness [caused by catarrhj that can
not be cured by Hall’s Catarrh cure. Send for
circulars, free.
