Colo rado, as Second Class matter. For President, BENJAMIN HARRISON. For Vice-President, LEVI P. MORTON The Carlton News is taking a rest until times get better. Dan Voorhes does not refer to Senator Ingalls in his campaign speeches. We favor Mr. Goodale for the legislature for the reason we be lieve him to Jre the best man men tioned for the position. It is said that Mr. Cleveland lias delayed giving his letter of accept ance to the public to receive the latest advices from England. Judging at the present time, we believe C. C. laic will receive the nomination for legislature. His nomination is almost sure an elect ion. The democrats are scared and are hedging by calling free trade tariff reform. Jt is too late, the cloven foot can not be covered up at this ’ate day. Eads was damaged by a storm one day last week to the amount of sev eral hundred dollars, Sunday the wind rated forty two miles an hoar at. Pueblo. It looks a good deal, after tlie mat ter has been investigated, like it was Chinese Cleveland. Read the arti cle cm our hrst page ou Cleveland’s Chinese record. The Irish World, the loading rep resentative of the Irish Americans, always a f,troDg democratic organ, has come out for Harrison and is doing noble work. They continue to have rip roring old storms in Kansas. The last one reported was at Jetraorc where bouses and barnes Mere rolled around like foot balls. Promises before election must be taken with a good deal of allowance. The best way is to choose a good inan for an office, one you know i_. fitted Or the position and who ha* the good of all at heart, unhampered by promises. Complaint is made at Glenvood Springs that the post master* and laud otjicers are trying to run the politics of that part of the country, but under Mr. Cleveland’s new ideas there is nothing offensive r.bont I’iat, he needs their help and needs it bad. Fitz Mac in the Colorado Springs gazette says that the next Governor of the state will be either Tabor. Meldruru, Dr. Moore, Rondoncr or Cooper, and talses as if Cooper vroald be the best man. There may be dark horse in this case, at any rale, the gentlemen mentioned are pot all the candidates by aiiy means. We fully indorse what the Times baa to say about the deplorable con dition of oar county records, and are of the opinion that it will yet be found a matter of wisdom and econ ornv to purchase the abstracts of Baldwin, Jay & Co. We will have more to say on this matter and in tend to present the views of the peo ple on the subject. The contest for the delegates at ♦he primaries is really being made now. The opposition to 31r. Good ale wc are told are out in the coun try urging the farmers to attend the primaries. The farmers should con aider carfully and understand the positions of the candidates before snaking any pledges, remembering that their interests are at stake.

I A county division meeting to di i vide Las Animas county vis hold at Boston last week and was largely attended by citizens of Minneapolis. As near as we can judge by the re port they failed to agree as two towns so near together are liable to do. There are several counties in the state figuring on division this winter and the loby at the legislature promises to be large. Under the heading of “\\ anted, a man,” the Cheyenne Wells Gazelle says in substance,for the legislature j next winter, “a man who is a man in every sence of the word is wanted, ■ a true blue republican, one that cannot be influenced by money and farther saj's: “There are but few men in the county fitted for the place next winter.” It seems to be the opinion of the people of Kent county that matters of great interest to the county are to come before th<? legislature and a careful select ion must be made to secure the right man to represent us. \\ e will say to the Gazette and the people of the county that we think C. C. Goodale is the man they want, possessing all the qnalities desired by the Gazette and the people. We arc pleased to learn that the candidacy of A. M. Nicholas for district attorney is meeting with so much favor throughout the district. When we consider Mr. Nicholas has made no canvass of the district and did not announce himself as a can didate until urged by members of his profession, not only here but at different places in the district, it is quits a compliment and a recognit ion of bis ability as nu attorney worthy of the support and confidence of his brother attorneys. Mr. Nich olas is an old resident of Colorado. lie studied law at Fort Collins, and was admitted to practice in the Supreme court of Colorado January tkt ISS:>, and has been successfully engaged in the practice since that time. lie came to Lamar a year ago January and soou took a place at the head of the bar oi Kent County, and to-day bears the reputation of being one of the best attorneys in this judicial district. He lias many frieuda outside of the republican party who will be pleased to sup port him, and from the present out look he leads all others for the posi tion of district attorney. A prominent democrat in speak ing to ns a few days ago about the candidates for the legislature, said, he hoped the republicans would not nominate C. C. Goodale. Being urged for his honest opinion as to why he particularly objected to Mr. Goodale, he said, “simply because the democrats can not beat him.” We then farther questioned him about the other candidates, and lie said he believed with Goodale out of the fight Bent county would send a democrat to the legislature. It is a well known fact that the demo crats are going to make a united effort to elect their man, whoever he may be to the legislature. Some of them have told some of their leading n.en at Denver that they would and they are going to make a desperate fight to succeed. Kent county has r, republican majority and if the re publicans make no mistake in their nomination they will have notrouble in carrying the election. It is con ceeded by many of the leading re publicans of the county that no mis take will be made, but that the party will be united by nominating Mr. Goodale. They recognize in linn not only a popular man but one who has the standing and ability to accomplish much good for the county also in the race that he lias no old trouble to patch up, no old enemies in the party to be pacified, no prom ises out, or no political debts to pay. If elected, he would go to the legis lature uncomproniised, other than, with the duty he owed to the people of Bent county; such is a man we need to represent us next winter, a man with broad views, representing the county, not one locality.
