Some more idiots passed in their chips this week by the auto mobile route. Unfortunately one man was killed who had nothing to do with one of the machini s He was run over by the chief of police in Denver. YVk feel like again calling atten tion to the fact that Theodore Roosevelt is more rapidly than ever lining up the republican nom ination for president In spite o! all this Taft nonsense, in spite of all his statements that he will not be it, the President is going to be re nominated. “What constitutes a day's work?" We figure it out that it depends altogether on occupation, says the Chapman Advance. If you lay brick it takes eight hours; if you keep house, sixteen hours; if you preach the gospel, two| hours; if you are a porter on a' sleeping car, twenty hour*;j if you serve the government, one hour; and if you are a newspaper man, twenty four hours. There is a good deal of hot air indulged in by republican polif j cians and republican newspapers, about the unanimous election of I Governor Butchtcl as a delegate by the recent Methodist confer encc at Grand Junction. We have it directly from an eye witness that on the first ballot, when tour delegates were to be selected, that the esteemed governor was two votes behind the fourth man hut only three had majorities that entitled them to election. During the night he pulled every polinc- l and church wire that could be laid hold of. The recalcitrant preach ers were hauled from their beds and lectured on the danger to the Denver University, etc, and the next day he succeeded in winning by two votes. These are straight facts.— Gunnison News. PRECEDENT ESTABLISHED. From year to year the Western SI me paper* have been called up on t" furnish gratuitous, column titer column o' advertising for the slate lair and the various Western Slope lairs, with the request for tree came a compli nu ntir'v tick, t lor ihe editor and his lady to the lair. Not one in ten editors took advantage of the state tair complimentary or more than one Western Slope fair out side his home town. This year, Delta, Grand Junction and Hotch kiss have establish, d a precedent for paying the cash for their ad vertising and it has been a mighty good investment, besides it will require other fairs in the future to pay for advertising if they get any. If newspaper advertising pays for any business it pays good returns to a fair association, and so far as the Laborer is concerned it cut out the state fair press no tices when the present owner came into possession of the paper. The state makes an appropriation each year to defray the expenses of the state fair; each county makes an appropriation to gather its exhibit; in former days all boosting bills for the state fair were paid in cash except the country newspaper man, who had worked to in crest his home peo ple in preparing the exhibit, com mended his county commissioners for making the appropriation, and took for his pay a complimentary ticket which he was not able to use. We believe the 'tate fair is a great institution and should be patronized very liberally, but at the same time we believe that its expense account should include newspaperadvertising. —Delta La borer. RATE REGULATION IN CANADA. In Canada the railroad compa nies are not permitted to change their rates without consent of the Railroad Commission. In many respects it would seem as if this law was a very just one, as it pre vents any serious change of rates being put into effect without due hearing being given the interested parties. The idea of conferring similar powers on the Interstate Commerce Commission where in terstate rates are involved, might be productive ol excellent results —The Timberman, Portland Ore gon. THEIR NERVE IS ALL RIGHT. The following we clip from the Liverpool Mercury. They evi dently secured it from l Japanese paper and it shows how really be ligerent the little brown niggers are: The Island Kmpirc possesses a powerful army and navy with which she has defeated Russia both on land and sea, and is al ways ready to respond to ?ny challenge. Kven though all the American squadrons should be brought to the Pacific, Japan would not be in the least dis turbed.—"Mainichi,” Osaka. At Lake City there seems to be a man who needs killing badly. Our readers will remember that on the eve of election last spring, one Kinsey shot and dangerously wounded Dr. Cummings, Mayor elect. After some trouble he was apprehended and placed in jail. A week ago Sunday he was furnished a revolver an i a bottle of whiskey and soon created so much disturbance that the jader, Joe Hunt, went in to quiet him. Kinsey got action with the revolver and lodged a bullet in Hunt's thigh. Hunt was sent to Salida, Monday and the bullet re moved and he is now on the way to recovery. It seems sure that Kinsey will get a long sentence for his crimes but how long will it be till the gang of old women called a board of pardons, will let him out again? While the editor was away the esteemed Booster seized the op portunity to say something about our editorial policy. One item wa in relation to our criticising ih. governer tor his pardoning a queen of the demi-monde Ir-.m Colorado City. This case the Booster saw fit to change to a man front Canon City. As is usual with Bro. Oliver he is very super filial in his reading. His comment has nothing to do with the case we mentioned even if he does try to make the case the same Our remarks were addressed to a case in which there was not even sem blance of an excuse His next t.ouble was occasioned by our commenting on the bond of fra ternity existing between our good Christian governor and the saloon keepers and gamblers. The Booster affects to believe that we are very much the advocate of the saloon keepers. Quite the contrary is the fact. We favor license be cause experience has proven that it is the best way to handle the business. We tavor compelling them to obey the law. Gov. Buch tel believes in letting them violate it with impunity. There is a con sistency in denouncing wrong even when your own church or party does the wrong, but the Booster has not as yet acquired that variety of consistency. The assassination of a section man near Crested Butte this week by a couple of boys is a specimen of depravity seldom observed anywhere. The boys, aged 14 and 17 respectively, applied to the section men for something to eat and were sent to the car some distance away. Here they tound a shot gun belonging to the men and this weaponw as appropriated and used in killing one of their benefactors and seriously wound ing the other. The entire motive was robbery and we can see no reason why such moral preverts should not be exterminated lest they grow up and propagate more of their kind Jesse Beezley, of this place was so close to the scene as t hear the shots. Clearly the signs of the times point to reform For the first time in the history of th- state Tax Agent Freeman, ot the Santa Fe has been called before the State Board of Equalization to make explanation ot why he lied in his affidavit of valuation made to that body. It must give the average grafter cold chills when Freeman is yanked before the State Board and asked impudent questions 'like that. We notice that many of the hide bound republican papers are taking up tiie howl about Okla holm adopting the initiative and referendum as a psrt of its consti tution. It might be wtll for these papers to read up and see if they can find anything in it to criticise. It is merely getting closer to the people, tn-ik ng true the boast that we are governed by the people. What is tin re to complain of? The late decision of the U. S. circuit court indicates that Stand ard Oil uill have to pay that t'19,000,000 fine before Judge Landis die- Under this decision not only the present law is good but the court holds the Elkins act providi g for criminal pro ceedureasst.il valid and active.

Cripple Creek Postmaster Declares Both Sides Have Had Enough of the un- American Fight. "Cripple Creek will either have to abolish the card system or go out of business The men are leaving the district at the rate ot from four to ten a day and no one is coming in to take their places. While the district ought to work 3,000 men, there are less than 900 at work in the entire district to day and they will get out as soon as possible. The strike is over and there is no reason on earth why the card sysfem should be retained. It has always been a detriment to our camp and always will be. There are fifty-four empty stole rooms within a space of five blocks on our mam streets. Think of that for the greatest gold camp on earth, and it will show you the foolishness of continuing the sys tem longer. “For my part I want to give it up and give the Western Feder ation a show and I believe they'll do the right thing. I think both sides have had enough of this un fair and un-American fight. Both sides did wrong and both sides have suffered irreparable loss. "I think it will only be a short time before the system is abolished and the district will be on the open shop plan. You know the Western Federation has adopted the open-shop plan and 1 think the card system should be com pletely abolished by the other side. If it isn’t wc might as well move out and say good bye to the district."

TO THE AFFLICTED We wish to call the attention of the public to the lollowing annoupccmcnt of Dr. E. F. Eldridge, Of Grand Junction, Colorado, Who has something to say to the sick and afflicted which may prove of immeasurable value to those who are suffering, either from disease or surgical deformities. The Doctor is favorably known over the entire Western Slope, he having been in active practice in his present location for the past filteen years, where he enjoys the respect aud confidence of thousands of his patients and associates. The Doctor spent many years in the study of his profession visiting many foreign countries and invesligating disease in scores of hospitals throughout Europe, as well as making special investigations of disease in its most frequent regions. Especially was this true of Goitre, Hay Fever and Typhoid Fever. The Doctor has made most exhaustive investigations of these dis eases, visiting Switzerland, where Goitre is epi demic, and studying the disease in its home. He found that the accepted theory of its cause was un founded, but that the real cause was readily re moved —and the disease curable, which he has proved in many cases since. Typhoid is broken up in a few days and the patient returns to his work, generally within a week. Hay fever —the bug bear of the summer months, is as readily cured. In fact the Doctor prefers those cases which are not de sired by the average physician as he has studied them out and finds great pleasure in relieving them. If You are Afflicted with any ot the above, or any other chronic or acute disease, requiring medicine or surgical attention call on the Doctor and he will tell you honestly whether he can cure you or not, as well as the probable cost. Your case is not hopeless so long as you have not secured his opinion. Dr. Eldridge’s permanent address is E. F. El dridge, M D.. No. 518 Main street. Grand Junction. Colorado, where his offices are always open and supplied with the best obtainable in drugs, medi cines. dressing*, ami all that pertains either to the practice of medicine or science of surgery.
