JANUARY 22. 1016. Regarding Mr. Caldwell's Death In response to the many inqulrlfM as to Mr. Caldwell's death, Mr. Moul ton has requested us to publish the following extract from a letter he has received from Mr. Rendle, under date of December 29, 1916. “I returned from Omaha this mora ing and presume you are anxious o have some of the particulars in I »- gard to Mr. Caldwell's illness ai J death. Upon ills return from N« w York shortly after Thanksgiving Me seemed to be feeling better than 04* ual, and did not commenoe to f«4l badly until two weeks ago Saturdaw night, when they had a big reception at the Omaha Country Club. Next day lie had a very severe attack of indigestion and was not again at thp bank, although until Thursday Of last week, there was no thought Of anything serious in connection wlts his illness. He simply stayed bomk and took care of himself, and aeemaf to be getting along all right; In had told the boys at the bank that he would be down the following Moat day, which would be Monday of this week. Friday evening he went to the bathroom and was taken suddenly with a very severe attack of acute Bright,s disease, and from that od there was little hope of hie recovery.’ His specialist arrived from Chicago and pronounced him at that time ae only having a five per cent heartand in no condition to stand any severe treatment for acute Brlght'e disease. They, however, did administer the treatment when they saw It wae a case of life or death within two or three hours at most. This treatment was administered Sunday afternoon and while he rallied at first and seemed to be responding in good shape the tide turned about eight p. in., and he died at 10:40 Sunday night He was unconscious from Friday up to the time of his death. “Of course you know that I found a very sad lot of men iu Omaha. He certainly must have been thought a great deal of in every way as many men were in tears and all were so shocked that Mr. Caldwell should be taken away from them.” From Bishop Williams. It will be remembered that on tbe late visitation of Bishop Brewster to .At. James mission, he MiuNisosd a preaching mission, to be held here, some time in the near future. Rev. Nelson wrote to Bishop Williams and asked that able and popular prelate to open th<?mission. In response to tho invitation. Bishop Williams writes as follows: My Dear Mr. Nelson.— Mrs. Williams has doubtless told you in her letter that I have had rather a severe illness. But for that reason, and that I am still not up to the mark, I should long since have written you. I am sure you can read ily understand how badly my corres pondence and diocesan duties are in arrears, and how slowly at this busy season of the year one catches up with ones work. Your invitation comes to me with tremendous force, and my heart goes out iu response to it, and to a people and a work which pulls. There is no place on this earth quite so close to me as the White river country, and I long to see it once again. Please God 1 shall some day, and then I shall be glad and happy to deliver once more the message of the unchanging Faith as summed up iu the Catholic reli gion. I hope the day will come soon, but because of the condition of iny health and the unceasing demands upon me here—demands whice I can not and must not Ignore—its date must he uncertain. I say this with the utmost regret, and with the great est appreciation of your kind words, and a sincere sense of the relation which I must ever bear to the field you are so faithfully laboring in. Y have always been a vigorous man. quite able to meet the demands on my ministry. But my illness has brought something of a crisis in my life, and I am warned by my doctor that I must let up for awhile, or ser ious results will follow. In fact he forbids me to undertake anything this year outside of my necessary work in the diocese. He tells me there is noth ing organic the matter with me, but that I am in a condition that invites a break-down unless I call a halt in my strenuous life. I have promissed iiim to do this, for I realize for the first time that 4 must be careful. Please believe tile when I say that but for my condition of health I should drop everything and go to you. I shall and do cherish the hope that in the near future I can undertake the trip. And so with a Christmas greeting to you and to the many who yet continue to remember ine, I re main as ever, Affectionately yours, Ahthub L. Williams. It goes without saying all old-tiro ers will be glad to see and hear the pioueer preacher of the White River valley, at no distant day. Ferris Bill Passes House. A Washington dispatch says: The Ferris bill, to create 640-acre stock raising homesteads on arid, semi-arid and mountainous lands, has passed the house. How About Colorado? The campaign of 1916 is assumed to have beeu opened by the meeting of the national committee at Washing ton a few’ days ago, when the dates and places agreed on were fixed by the two committees. The Democrats will meet at St Louis on June 14th, the Republicans at Chicago on the 7th of the same mouth. In view of the fact that the Demo cratic politicians have declared Hint only President Wilson will bo before the convention at St. Louis, the ques tion «f who will lead the Democratic party is not of particular interest at this time. It may be later. It is of very deep iuterest, however, to consider the situation in Colorado. In 1914 a combination of elements not likely to occur again resulted in the defeat of the greater part of the Democratic ticket. George A. Carlson was elected governor by Democratic votes, not one of whom wanted him or believed in him, w hile thousands of Ids own party voted for him with the greatest reluctance and these Republicans and Democrats care less for hitn now than then. In spite of all this, Governor Carlson is in the sad dle and has overlooked nothing that he believed would enable him to he his own successor. The judgement of the old-time standpatters seems to he that he holds the best hAiid as far as the nomination goes. The Democrats of Colorado have the game in their own hands. If they heed the signs of the hour they will carry Colorado next November. All that is required at their hands is to make a ticket that will appeal to the conscience and good sense of the people. Our legisla tures have reformed things until strict party lines no longer exist. In their stead a spirit of independence has arisen. The average voter naturally prefers a candidate belonging to his own party but If the opposition offers a ImHm stafiMW ifiatabU candi date and he knows it, he will vote for him and we have abundant proof that these independent voters decide the result. This justifies the declaration that it is the plain duty of the Demo crats to lay aside their factional dif ferences and make an effort to place a ticket in nomination that will not only command the votes of all Dem ocrats but the votes of the Republi cans who have enough state pride to lead them to give their support to the men who will bring honor and credit to Colorado. The Review lias more than once commended the Hon. Bam N. Wheeler of Grand Junctiqp as an ideal man for governor of Colorado. A gentleman of the old school, an able lawyer, in the prime of life, a useful and honest man—as a candidate for governor lie would be unbeatable. —Fort Collins Review. Buford Briefs. Two feet of snow last week in the flats. The grip has about lost its grip in this neighborhood. On account of the mild winter and snows there is very little ice in the river. It takes constant travelling to keep the roads open; winds and drifting snow. Coyotes are unusually plentiful. Probably the bard weather has driven them all out of the hills. Sam Himes has leased the White- Bear saw mill at the forks and will run it the rest of the winter. The camp-robber birds have flocked down from the mountains to the val leys; a sure sign of a late spring. On the other hand, the little teal ducks have remained here, which is posi tive proof of an early spring. Which are doing the nature faking act? A Mutt. It must have been hard on “little bennle” going through Germany seal ed up in his coach, like so much ex preisage, and with the blinds pulled down, so that he and his co-notoriety seekers couldn't get a glimpse of the German landscape. What has become of the Bull Moos er who “Stood at Armageddon and battled for the Lord?” Gone on a •trike? The fruit of thought will ripen only upon the bough of researcli and in vestigation.
